CIVIL SMiVICIS POSITIONS.
Official Declaration its to AH
Them to He I.ssnel.
CoiiKldiiruhlc uncertainty as to the status
of positions la the civil jervice still ex
ists, eveiuimjiiKpersonsln office. Whether
a given pluce is under civil service rules
or lielonps to the excepted list is often a
very nice question. Even the men who
ordinarily detenaine such a matter some
times disagree, and then it is necessary to
refer the matter to some law officer,
usually the Attorney General. There ire
a number of decisions from lilm on ques
tions of this kind.
One, for instance, Is In regard to em
ployes In the Bopartmoiit of Justice. It
settles the poMtion or deputies under the
United States marshal for this District. IC
holds that the office deputies are under the
rules, while field deputies are excepted.
Asaln, among the assistants to the At
torney General, those who appear In court
are excepted, while, those who do not arc
protected by the rule requiring a com
petitive examination, to precede the ap
pointment in order to determine the fit
ness of applicants.
The reason for the uncertainty lies in
the rapidity with which the rules were
extended last summer by President Cleve
land. The list of appointments was so
changed that some 6ort of revision he
came necessary. The newspapers have
published statements as to what positions
arc open to candidates without examina
tion, but these have all had some errors,
Including positive statements aoout posi
tions not passed upon. To furnish correct
and full information the Civil Service Com
mission is now preparing a, publication
Avhich will give the exact status of every
place in the service up to date.
This book is now in the - press, and
will be out the latter part of this week.
It will enable Congressmen to tell Just
what places are open and who are now
filling them. It Is prepared iu answer to
a resolution -Congrc8s.

her husband was brought to light yester
day, in a bill riled in equity by Mrs.

contempt and harsh treatment. The loan

Special Committee lluving This Mat
ter In Charge Discusses Plans.
The special committee, representing the
Associated Charities. Central .Relief Com
mittee, and the Board of Trade, or which
Gen. Sternberg is chairman, met yesterday
afternoon in the office of the chairman, in
the State, War, and Navy Building. The
committee is charged with the investigar
tlon of the sanitary conditions of the
dwellings of the poor of Washington, with
a view to deising plans for the better
housing of this class of residents, es
pecially in alleys and narrow streets. The
members or the committee have made a.
personal inspection or the condition ot
the people in these localities, and are
thoroughly acquainted with the situation.
Several plans were discussed at the
meeting yesterday, but as nothing definite
was decided on, no report was given out.
Gen. Sternberg said it was probable the
committee would hold several sessions
before a full report would be made. The
conclusions arrived at so Tar, however,
will be submitted to the meeting of the
Central Relief Committee tomorrow after
