The Rldgely Attaint Case.
To the Editor of The Times:
In Uie evening edition of The Times,
under date ot August 2, and captioned
"Another Brute Escapes," and. aUo, in
the morning edition and date of August
3, beadllne. "Wanted By tlie Folice,"
was tolfi the story or the heinous criminal
assaullupon my eight-year-old little daugh
ter by the lihertine and villain, Henry
Rldgdy, whose arrest has not yet been
eTfected. The story a6 narrated in the
evening edition, in the main, is true,
and places the responslbilHy for the ecoun
dreTs escape just where it belongs.
The crime was committed on the 20th.
ultimo, and. owing to the threat ot the
villain, coupled with the bashful disposition
ot Uie child, neither I nor my wife Was
aware such a thing had happened nntll
the night of the 23d. I immediately
sought to have the scoundrel arrested,
but was told by the officer In charge
at No. 2 station that a warrant was
absolutely necessary to make the arrest,
and Uils could be secured only through
the drk of the court. This decision
baffled f urther efforts until the next morn
ing, when I went to Interview Mr. Mul
lowny and secure through him Uie war
rant from the clerk.
At first Mr Mullowny discouraged me in
securing the warrant, citing as reasons that
it was so hard to make out a case to such
comjrtalnts, announcing that many such
complaints haa been brought to his atten
tion In the bast three yurs In which not
a angle convicUon was secured. ButT
persisted and he gavo me the warrant I
asked- criminal assault, but too late to
accomplish any good.
The corapronuse spoken, of is all bosh..
No euoh thing was ever suggested to me,
nor would 1 entertain it- A Fitting judge
and a deliberating jury 'can alone satisfy
the outrage upon my family, and the In
'noceuce of ray UtUe daughter. I hope this
dlrpels Uie truth of the chargp of tardiness
on my part, and places Uie responsibility
where it belongs, for thn laxity of the law
and latitude of criminals which, should It
continue, will make our city a liadcs and
iour boasted civilization a travesty.
Thcreissomethlngwronj; somewhere, and
we, Uie law-abiding citizens, hope The
Times will make Uie discovery.

FfiMCfll IN EFFECT
Xn Expert's Opinion of Mr. Mc
Kinley's Civil Service Order.
GENUINE REFORM IN SIGHT
Permanence and Discipline Estab
lished on a Firm Bais A De
cidtd Step iu the Desired Direction--View,
of Secretary MeAiieny
of the National League.
Mr. George McAneny, secretary of the
NaUonal Civil Service Beform League, has
piepared a statement relatne to the re
cent order ot the President amending the
civil service rules. Mr. McAneny saii:
"The new rule requiring that no re
moval shall be made from a position sub
ject to competithc examination except
for just cause, and upon written charges,
of which the accused shall have full notice
and an opportunity to make defense, will
have a far-reaching application. It will
apply to every officer and employe In the
departments at Washington, excepting of
ficers confirmed by the Senate, certain
attorneys in the Department of Justice, a
few private secretaries and Uie common
"In. the groat local offices, such as the
New Yom custom house and postoffice, It
will apply to all between the extremes of
officers confirmed by the Senate and la
borers, except the principal deputy or as
sistant ana the cashier. In the cahe of
each office or employment affected It will
mean that the incumbent shall not be re
moved except for reasons having to do with
the good ot the service, Uiat have nothing
to do with politics or religion, and that
may be safely put in writing. An officer
hnx-ing the power to remove will hesitate
to assign reasons that are frivglous or un
just, and the officer or employe, of what
ever rank, wiUenjoy a reasonable degree ot
security so long as his services continue to
be meritorious. On the other hand, It is a
mistake to suppose that the discretion of
the department head is to he unduly limit
ed, or that there will be tbc sllghteBtuirtt
culty in g tUng rid ot an objecUonable sub
ordinate. "The new rule provide for no form of
trial. Nor is the acUon of the depart
ment ort.cer subject to review by any other
execuUvc authority. All that is required
Is, that the reasons Tor his action shall be
a matter ot record, and that If the person
removed wishes to be heard before his
caie Is finally adjudicated he may have a
fair opportunity. Unless the reasons are
sufficient the department officer will heal
tate to file them, and If the person removed
VnoWs that they are good he will hesitate
to dlsp ite them. This is a very tlmpie
plan compared with the court-martial of
the Army or Navy, or the elaborate and
somewhat bothersome trial system ot the
municipal police aud fire departments.
That ltlhquitesufficent, however, bcth to
protect the meritorious employes and to
permit the maintenance of proper disci
pline has been proven by experience. A
similar rule tias been In operation In the
Postoffice Department, applying to clerks
and carrier, for three years past. There
it has worl'ed with absolute satisfaction.
"The new order has the force of law,
and it goes Into effect atonce Anyofflcer
who dipob'-ys it must, under the provisions
of civil service rule No 2, be dismissed from
the service. The immediate result will be
boUi to prevent all removals for poliUcal
reasons, ard to put a stop to the practice
of putting out one man merely to make a
place for another who may happen to be
eligible either for certification under the
rules or for reinstatement. The Adminis
tration has btnncd a little in each of these
respects, but the acUon of the President,
coming thus earlyln hlsterm.is thestrong
cst possible guarantee for the future
"The new ordr will protect a certain
number ot political appointees ot the pre
ceding Administration, but not nearly so
many as mot people suppose and none as
all who are incompetent or unfit. The ex
tensions ot May 6, 1896, covered 30,082
positions; 5,063 of these were employes
of the navy yards who had been placed
under merit rules by Secretary Tracy, In
1891, vnd whose classification as part of
the general system was a mere formality;
5,025 v.ere employes ot the lighUiouse and
life-saving services, and other Treasury
brauchee, tint had been previously subject
to separate examination systems, and wero
non-po'itici)l; 2,001 were Indians employed
in the Indian service and excepted from
competlUon, 0,256 were mechanics, engi
neers, eto ,tn the engineering and ordnance
bureaus ot the War Department, also non
pohUcal, and 4.120 were pension examining
Burgeons, paid by feos.
"Of Uie remaining 8,500, many other,
clashes had not been affectwl by poliUcal
changes. II may safely be said that not
more than 5,000 officers on the eutirn lbt
had been appointed for political reasons,
and then classified, including the division
vhiffs. Of Uie positlona classified before
May, 1896, Uie most Important were those
in Uie Government Printing Office. Sixty
nine per cent of those in thatoffic-.at tile
date of classification had been left thre
Mr. Palmer.. It Is well that these facts
Fhould bo understood clearly, not only be
cause it is fairer to Mr. Cleveland, but in
order that It may not be charged against
Mr. McKinley that he has given his pro
tection to any considerable number ot m
ployes who, from one point of view, mlghi
not be entitled to it.
"The fact that President McKinley haa
extended a reasonable protection to theso
appointees of Mr. Cleveland who, do re
main in Uie wtvJcc, as well as to all
oUiers, ffeetns to me in the highest degree
creditable. The whole subordinate sen ice
is now in a fair way to reach the babls
of permanence and good discipline that
Is -essential to the best administration,
and the Pn-sirtcnt, In adding to the sys
tem of appointment for merit the guar
antee ot retention for merit, has made
that basis possible. He has done, in fact,
what Mr. Cleveland, toward the close ot
hlb first term, declined to do. During the
hitter part of 1887, a revision of the rules,
changing tho plan of tlassifi cation and
extending Its scope, was prepared by tho
Civil SerMce Commission. When this re
vision waa submitted to tho President Is
contained the following:
" 'Whenever a dismissal from the ex
ecutive civil service is made, a written
statement of the cause ot the dismissal
must be filed In the department or office
"rom which the dismissal is made, and
become a part of tho records of such de
partment or office.'
"The revision vas approved with the ex
ception or this rule, to which Mr. Cleve
land objected on the ground that the power
or removal should not be restricted even
lo the limited degree proposed. The f rnm
prs of tho first civil service rules had held
the same idea. The Curtis commission in
1872 reported to UiePreaidentthatitseemed
to them more desirable to afford a rea
sonable .security of permanence in ort Jr 'by
depriving the head of illegitimate motives
for removal' rather than by fixed regula
tion unles3 it can be shown from the
nature of the system that tho power ot
removal is Jikfcly to be removed.' Expe
rience h&jj shown that even under the
limitations of Uie competiUve appointment
system the removing power is nbtiMl- It
was this fact that piotripted the commis
nion to lecominend itn lestriction to Mr.
Cleveland. Sinco 1KF8 it has fiefiuentlv
made the Mine recommendation to other
Presidi-nt". but it has been left for Mr.
McKinley to take the decisive stop.
"Of far .greater consequence than thu
inclusion ot new classes Is the virtual an
nouncement the President makes that tho
existing classification will remain prac
tically unimpaired. During the past five
months the demand for a niodifjiug order
lias been clamorous and unremitting.
"Probably on no other Executive has so
great an amount of pressure been brought
in (lie Iiodc of accomplishing a single ob
ject. How well the pressure has been ru
sisted Is now quite apparent. Finally, by
way of answer, we have tiie order of July
27. The President fulfills his pledges llt
prally He declines that he will maintaiu
the law rather than weaken it. .and that
Instead ot limiting its operation he will
extend it wriere extension is pracUcaJL
The sug(.(!btion that Mr. McKinley settled
on this policy only after he had noticed
tlie ropular disapproval with which ro
porta of his intention to do oUierwise had
been received is quite unfair to him. 1
have had several interviews with the
President on this subject during the -past
'On the 2:1 day of July, a week be
fore theso reports were published, he as
eured me positively that no changes ot u
serious character would lie made, and that
Uie exceptions other titan those recom
mended by the Civil Service Commtfcsion
would be confined to Isolated cases, In
which, owing to peculiar circumstances,
an exception might be necessary. When
I Jigaln saw him on the 24th he spoke in
the same encouraging way, adding that he
would seek to improve and extend the
system rather than to restrict It.
"I do not believe that any time since
the 4th or March the President has intend
ed to do anything but what he now has
done. I believe, moreover, that with tho
order of July 27 as an earnest of Mr. Mc
Kiolcy'H disposition and purposes, it is
lu be expected that tills AdmlnistraUon w 111
carry tlie reform of the civil service very
near to completion, and that for that ac
complishment It will be remembered his
torically." SCHOOLS FOR THE SIOUX
A Snperintendenl's Views on lLe
Culture of Indians.
ElderH Tnlco Pride in the Education
of the Young Report Their
Conduct at no mo.
BeatriceB.Sonderegger, superintendent of
the Indian Industrial Boarding Bchool
at Standing Bock Agency, N. D., has some
pronoum-ed views on the subject ot Indian
In a recent talk with the superintendent
ot Indian schools she set forth that the
work done at her school was based on the
principle that the test of education should
be efficiency. She said: "By efficiency, I
do not mean the mero knowledge of facts
or the mere skill to do one thing or another
more or less well. Efficiency, as I under
Ftandit, is tlie power touse heud,hand,and
heart intelligently and successfully In
whatever iiositton or amid whatever
environment one may be placed. I think
it is the part of educators to develop and
guide and to promote the growth of Uie
powers ot head, hand, and heart of their
pupils from earliest childhood, until they
have grown btrong enough to coutlmw
their work Independently without dlreo
tions from others.''
Miss Sonderegger regards no pupil a suc
cess who, having started out In life under
the care and supervision of his or her edu
cators, after a reasonable time Is not de
termined and able to go on for hlrmelf or
hcrseir. It these girls and boys have not
learned to Ticlp themselves; to make the
best of their environment; to think and rea
son, and to apply their knowledge to dif
ferent circuniftauces; to set to work with
determination, with Uiat self-reliance and
consciousness ot power which assures suc
cess, their education has been a failure,
however "high" It may have carried them.
Hence the teaching In all the departments
ot the Standing Bock School pursues the
distinct and definite aim to get tiie pupils
to think and reason for Uicmselves; to put
the knowledge acquired to a practical use,
Orst, under the guidance ot teachers, and
then independently for Uiemsclves. This
purpose underlies all tbc work done in the
schoolroom, the sewing room, the kitchen,
the bakery and the laundry. Every vaca
tion lb made use of to reach thelndian pupils
in their homes.
Another unusual thing which Aiiss Son
deregcer said to the Indian school super
intendent was: "I measure each year's
progress of the school by the results mani
fested by tlie pupils during vacation, when
mofat of tbem are at their homes. What
tne pupils retain and gain during vaca
tion is more to us than all the good deport
ment and showy attainments displayed
during the school year. The vacation puts
to test the pupil's growing power to see,
to do, and to resist."
Miss Eonderesger said that the Sioux
Indians seem to appreciate the value of
education. They, with a few exceptions,
take pride In bringing their children to
school. They eagerly watob. their progress,
and after vacation report how their chil
dren conducted themselves at home.
