Secretary ScurRz seems to be about
tho only member ol the cabinet.' who Is
earnestly working lor civil servlcetc form.
He lim under consideration A plan for
the reorganization ol the pens-ion service
which II carried Into effect will be a great
saving to the goriment. The schemo
contemplates the TttKilition of more than
one halt of the present pension agencies,
the consolidation of the dis
tricts, and a reduction in the
amount of fees allowed. The amount of
money annually appropriated lor the
payment of pensions is $30,000,000, a
sum greater by several millions than the
entire expenses of the government In the
year of IStn. Notwithstanding the enor
mous increase In the business of the pen
sion service, the system adopted
when the government first be
gan to pay pensions Is still
maintained. Secretary Schurz has
given the subject much thought; nnd has
finally come to the conclusion that more
thau one-halt the present number ol pen
sion nir'ticicR can bo disnensed with with
out detriment to the service. There arc
uow some- sixty-eight agencies, ilrawinar
dollars each, exclusive of fees, which
in every tlMrict. " tli.i lliire
show, amount to more than twice the
salary. For instance, in tins, mc raiem
district, the saliry of the agent Js $:i,000.
and the lees amount to oyer $0,000. Sec
retary Schurz's plan is to reduce the
number of agencies lrom sixty-eight to
twenty-two, consolidate their districts
and reform the fee system. Ketorm in
the pension service has long been re
garded as necessary, but no former sec
retary of the interior ever attempted to
inaugurate the rclorms so much needed,
and which would result in so great a
saving to the government.
The story Is told now that Black

that thusands of men are now wandering

the hills in the hone oi eettlng rich arc
now friendless, and would willingly
work lor what they eat, but can

cou.-piracy was formed by

posed to his administration to uepo
him from the presidency an 1 put either
Mr. Fremont or myself in his place as a
dictator; that a written memorandum of
the compact was made ai the tune ; mat
a copy ol it was in the possession of Mr.
Chase, and by liiin bliown to Mr. Lin
coln. Now 1 desire to brand the above
statement in all its parts as a willful anil
malignant l ilsehocd, and It .Mr. Ward
Lamore ever made such a statement as Is
alleged to any one, I pronounce him a
liar. I saw the ailiele in the Tribune
last week, and had it related only to
myself 1 should not have condescended
to notice so silly a lie, but when I find it
copied into respectable journals, and as It
Implicates many ineiuhers ot tnai orave
old congress that carried us triumph
antly through the war, most of
whom are in tncir graves, i
thought such a scandal upon them
hould not go uncontradicted. Ihe
second statement, relating to Mr. Painter,
isaslollows: "Mr. Wade is credited
with saying, in explanation of his fa
mous letter, that it was confidential and
was made public by a person totally de
praved and utterly destitute ot honor."'
This is also utterly false. Although the
letter was private, it found its way to the
public In a manner which entirely excul
pates Mr. 1'aint'ir from nil blame. Nor
do 1 blame him lor its publication, as it
contains only sentimente which I stand
bv now. I do not regret its publication
and in all tlie hostile criticism in the pa
pers and otherwi-e which it has called
forth, no one has as yet denied that it
contained the exact truth, in vindica
