SATURDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1918.
In tho Sanitary District of Chicago,
nil of tho employe in tho technical
departments, Including tho engineer
ing, electrical development and Hold
divisions, are to he retained 'auto
matically. "These men will not he dlstuibed in
their existent positions until moro
practical and available men Hlioll have
offered themselves and shall have
demonstrated their ability through
examinations given hy tho department
heads," was tho statement mndo by
George V. I'aullln, trustee of tho dis
trict, who Is now tho chairman of the
employment committee of the district.
The last legislature failed to pnss a
civil son Ice act that would have
placed all of the employes of tho sani
tary district under tho merit law sys
tem. "The effect of the program thut has
been agreed to," Trustee I'aullln snld,
"Is to preserve practically Intnct tho
force of experienced employes that
hns been built up during the Inst ten
cars There Is no doubt, for in
stance, that George 51. Winner, tho
chief engineer, v. Ill remain in that
post Thero will bo fow If any
changes In any of the technical de
partments." Thero has been repented tulle and
gossip that between -t.Oou anil 5.000
positions within the snnltaiy district
were at staho In tho recent election
nnd tho popular political supposition
has been that at least 1,000 places nro
now "on tho plo counter."
' Tho facts are quite to tho con
trary," Trustee I'aullln said. "At tho
outsldo .'.00 positions, all of which aro
clerical or connected with tho dis
trict's police department, nro to be
considered as 'patronage.' The police
department was Increased materially
during the war, us u measure of pro
tection jo tho snnltary district's prop
