APPtINTMENTS IN VILATION OF CIVIL
Politics Are Paramount- Party Influence
an Indispensable Factor in Procuring
Office for a Candidate.
WaSHINGTON, April 9.-There are
plenty of signs that the administration
does not intend to allow itself to be
hampered much by the civil service law.
Men are occasionally appointed without
civil service machinery to places in the
classified service, but this is such an
open violation of the law that it does not
A much better plan is for the politi
cian to get his friend examined, and,
when he is~ on the eligible list, get his
name certified the next time there is a
vacancy, regardless of the fact that the
candidate is at the foot of the list and
his State's quota is full. If the appoint
ing officer wishes to oblige the statesman
by appointing his friend, this scheme
can be worked very well.
Commissioner Tanner has made it
understood in the Pension Office that
the Democrats will be weeded out as
fast as practicable, and about a hundred
discharges are awaiting issue. It is only
justice to Secretary Noble, however, to
say thdt he was misrepresented in an in
terview in a local paper to-day. The
Secretary never spoke of ex-Confede
rates and had no disposition to single
them out for removal. Nor did he speak
of the 150 special examiners and say he
understood they were all Democrats and
that they would have to go. What he
did say was that incompetent employees,
whether Republicans or Democrats,
would be removed, and that in making
appointments he should appoint only
Republicans so far as the civil service
law left him free to make selections. In
the Treasury the appointment division
is making up lists of clerks, the dates of
appointments, by whom recommended
and their political proclivities.
The place of superintendent of the
cabinet shop in the Treasury Depart
ment is under the civil service regula
tions, but three men are seeking it with
purely political influence, and there is
every indication that one of them, who
is backed by Senator Quay, will be suc
In the railway mail service, however,
the Congressmen are getting little bene
fit from the postponement of the apph
cation of the civil service system. Re
morals are being made rather slowly,
and a good many things besides political
influencearerequisite to procureappoint
Superintendent Bell will not reappoint
men who were in the service and dis
missed by the late administration if they
are over 50 years of age. He will not
make any original appointments of men
above 35 unless they are old soldiers,
when he will give them a few years'
grace. But'tbis cannot amount to much,
as there are few survivors of the civil
war under 42 years old. The chances
are that more original Harrison men
than ever will now come to the front.
There has been an active fight for the
position of United States District Attor
ney for the Western district of Missouri.
Finally a man named Kimball was se
lected for the position. His appoint
ment papers were prepared at the De
partment of Justice and only needed the
signature of the President. While mat
ters were in this state a man named
Neal, from Osceola, M1o., concluded he
would like the position. His only claim
for the place was that at the Chicago
Convention, to which he was a delegate,
_e' vboted first, last and all the time for
Harrison, while the rest of the Missouri
delegation was scattered. Neal's claim
appears to be convincing, as Kimball's
-papers are being held up, and the Mis
souri politicians expect that Neal will
get the place after all. It sometimes
helps a man to be from Indiana, even if
he be a Democrat. A number of In
diana Republicans have +asked that
Colonel McLain, First Deputy Commis
sioner of Pensions, who is an Indiana
man, be retained in his pesit ion, and
they understand that this will be done.

There is a religious revival at Calhoun
Ky., and Sheriff White of McLean
County has been among the converts.
He is a convert of the right kind, for as
soon as he got religion he began to put
it into practical shape. He confessed
that he had stolen a thousand dollars
from the County treasury thirteen years
ago, and, after telling of the crime he
had perpetrated and so long concealed,
he proceeded to show his repentance.
He also thought that something else than
repentance was necessary, lHe did not
rest satisfied with bewailing his guilt, or
shedding tears over it, or asking D)ivine
pardon for it, or warning the brethren
against following his example, o~r prom
ising that he would never agamn (do
wrong. The Sheriff of McLean C'ountv
took another way of showing the genu
ineness of his repentance and conver
sion. He restored to the treasury of the
County the thousand dollars of which he
ad defranded it in 1876. Tiat was the
thing for him to do. That looks like
praeti'al religion, in accordlance withI
the Scriptures. The case is worthy of
consideration by an convert who hats
ever been guilty of a deed like his with
out pursuing the course that he adopted
after repentance.-.Nete York .Sun.

A COLLUMBIA LADY IN CHINA.
An Entertaining Letter from Miss Essie
Wilson, Giving Some of Her Exper
iences Among the Celestials.
The following from a lady we.l-known
to all Columbians, now a missionary in
China, is taken from the tsoutthern Pres
byterian, and will be read with interest
by all Miss Wilson's former friends
IIAN; CHow. China,
February 19, 1889.
NY DEAR Y orst FRIENDS: It seeiuis
to inc that by far the greater number of
letters written by missionaries are for
grown people, at least I used to think
so when I was a little girl. So I am go
ing to write to the children, and I hope
all of n.y little friends and scholars
whom I left in America, and many oth
ers besides will read this, for I am
sure you want to hear all you can about
your little Chinese sisters.
Now, when you read this I want you
to get Your atlases and find China, then
look carefully until von find hang ('how.
Well. that is where I am. Whien I look
out of my window, I get a lovely view of
the mountains, and now they are par
ticularly beautiful, for they are covered
Within the same enclosure as our
house is the "Girls' Boarding School."
There are forty-three in it at present,
many ot them bright and intelligent
looking, and some of them very pretty.
You may smile at that, but it is true.
Just before the New Year holidays
they were examined on their year's
work, and 1 do not believe they enjoyed
their examination any more than you do
yours. There was a class of little girls
examined in arithmetic through multi
plication. Each one was sent to the
blackboard and not a single mistake was
made by any of them I wonder how
many American children can do as well.
The smallest girls in the school wear
their hair in two knots, one on each side
of the head, just above the ear. The
oller ones have only one knot on the
side: and the large girls put it on the
back of the head. In the mornings
they study and recite their lessons, and
in the afternoons they are taught va
rious kinds of work, such as knitting,
sewing, winding silk, making silk cord
and embroidery; and very pretty work
They study out loud, which seems very
strange to me. I soineimes wonder
how they can learn anything at all. BuS
they seem to think it rather inspiriting
to !tear their neighbors studying. It is
astonishing the number of chapters they
can repeat of the Bible, and nearly all
of them know the Shorter Catechism
,eet/tly. The older girls are studying
it now witn the proof texts. -
The feet of t. ese girls are not bound,
so that after their work is over they en
joy running and playing in the yard as
much a" you do. They have a game
which is very much like our game of
marbles, but they play with small shells,
and very expert they are, too.
I am teaching two of the girls to pl.my
on the organ and they learn very
quickly. ' hey are all fond of music and
sing very nicely. Sometimes when they
are singing the Gospel tymns I can
almost imagine myself back in my class
room in Columbia. The Chinese know
nothing of singing except as they have
been taught by foreigners.
A few weeks ago I had my first exper
ience in eating with chop-sticks. Mrs.
Stuart, her two little boys, Miss Kirk
land and myself were invited to eat din
nr with one of our native teachers.
A-mun. She is a very earnest Chris
tian woman. As soon as we enteredl
the room tea w.e handed us without
milk or sugar. They draw tea by put
ting a fewv leaves in the cup, pouring
boiling water on it and putting the coCr
on the cup.
Pretty soon we sat down to dinner.
I must admit I was rather timid about
trying to use my chop-sticks, for I ex
pected to be very awkward. But to my
surprise after the first attempt I had no
trouble at all. We had all of the sweet
things first, various kinds of candies and
sweetmeats. Then a howl of steaming
hot stew was brought in and put on the
centre of the table, consisting of various
things-bamboo roots, onlions, fish-balls,
beef, water-nuts, etc. We helped our
selves with our own sticks from the
bowl. Then we each had a bowl of rice,
after which followed various stews and
native dishes, and finally we had or
anges. I cannot say I enjoyed all of the
dishes, but I tasted each of theum.
Thbis is the great season here now for
"kite flying," and the Chinese are very
ingenious in their designs. To-day I
saw quite a number of them floating
about in the air, one in ttie form of am
centipede, another a large bird, another
Now, echildren, I have told you about
these school girls who are taken care of
here, and taught to k-now and love
Jesus, therefore they are happy. But
there are very, very many children in!
China, even im this very city, who
know nothing about Jesus. Nowv, I
want each of you little boys and girls to
ask yourself: What can I do to help
send'the gospel to my little Chinese
brothers and sisters?
I am sure each of you can do some
thing. If you cannot give money, you
can pray for them, and ask God to send
us out some, more men and women to
help us tell them about Jesus.
Your friend, EssIE E. WILsON.

THE GEORGIA JIDI-CROW CAR.
Argument in the Heard Case Before the
'\sWHIN;ToN, April 10.-The Inter
State Commerce Commission to-day
heard the case of Wm. H. Heard vs. the
Georgia Railroad Company. The peti
tioner complains that in traveling over
defendant's road from Augusta to At
lanta he was compelled to accept second
class accoinmodal ions, in that he was
obli tl to ooeupv a compartnent car,
although lie had purchased a ticket
allowing him first class accommodations.
Complainant in his petition prays that
whole cars be furnished for the use of
colored people on defendant's road, the
same as are furnished to the white peo
ple, or that the smokers' car be located
in some portion of the train other than
in the compartinent car, which colored
trivel'ers are reqired to occupy.
I Depositions concerning the condition
of the aeconnodationson the road were
read by the attorneys on both sides. J.
W. Cromwell, counsel for the complain
ant, then began his argument. He did
not desire to argue the case at length,
he said. inasmuch as the facts in the
case were practically the same as those
in the previous complaint against this
defendant, and at. which time the Com
mission issued an order requiring the
company to cease and desist from sub
jectin~ colored passengers to unreason
alble prejudice and disadvantage regard
ing aecoinadations. Counsel, however,
desired to say that the sixteenth section
of the inter-state Act had not been un
derstood or had been -lisregarded by
the coipany'. This section provides
that whenever any common carrier sub
ject to the provision of the Act shall
violate or refuse or neglect to obey or
perform any requirement of the inter
State Commission, it shall be lawful for
the Commission, or for any company or
person interested in such order or re
quirement, to apply by petition to the
Circuit Court, alleging such violation
and disobedience, and the court shall
have power to hear and determine the
Before proceeding to answer the ar
gument, J. B. Cumming, counsel for the
railroad company, called as a witness
Win. Martin, who testified to ample ac
comiodations on the Georgia road for
white and colored passengers, except be
tween Augusta and local points on the
line where the ears were frequently
crowded, but where white and colored
passengers fared alike. Cuniming then
took up in detail the charges made by
complainant, and denied that there was
any attempt at diseri mination. The
itse' of compartment ears on which con
plaiiant was o1blige(l to ride was a ques
tion of economy with the company.
H1i1f a car is sufficient for the amount of
travel. The books of the company
showed that the amount of space fur
nished for colored people was in excess
of that furnished for white people. It
was not a race question, and there was
no indignity or slight to the colored peo
ple in furnishing theni with half cars.
After further argument. the Commis
sioni took the case uinder advisement.
