Examination for Post Office/
Pursuant to the announcement
published some time ago, Mr. Holley,
an employee of the Aiken post of
fice, held an examination in the Court
House Saturday looking to filling the
vacancy in the Edgefield post office
caused by the term of Mr. C. M. Mel
liohamp having expired. Those who
stood the examination were Mrs. W.
R. Swearingen, Miss Sophie Minis,
Mrs. W. S. G. Heath, Miss "Fannie
Timmerman, Mr. W. L. Dunovant,
Jr., Mr. ,T A. Owdom, Mr. Watson
Ouzts, Mr. C. M. Mellichamp and Mr.
J. G. Holland. According to rules
governing Civil Service appoint
ments, should the appointment be
made on merit and fitness, one of the
three making the highest mark on
the examination will be chosen for
the Edgefield post office. The state
ment has been made in. the public
print, even charged on the floor of
the senate, we believe, that the Re
publican party is ignornig this Civil
Service rule in some instances in
making appointments. However, it
will soon be shown whether this be
true or not, as the appointment will
be .made at ari early date. '
