Tho Grand Jury Likoly to be Ediiled With
a Beoital of What the Governor Doesn't
ST. Louis, Oct. 19. It was late this
morning when Gov. Crittenden took break
fast in the Southern. The cards of several
gentlemen, among them Senator Heard's,
were returned with tbo reply, "Not in."
Shortly after 10 o'clock His Excellency
appeared at tliu main entrance of tho Four
Courts, He was freshly shaven, and car
ried In his left band a small, compact pack
age. He did not wear a boutonnlere. His
air and bearing wero not possessed of their
tisinl consequential and confident nature.
Upon reaching the third story of the bulkl
In;, where the deliberations of the grand
Jury are held, he was met and welcomed
by Janitor Billy WaKrs. Ho acted as es
cort to the room of Assistant Circuit At
torney Sullivan, where His Excellency was
safely etisconscd. The grand Jurymen
were somewhat tardy in assembling, and,
consequently the governor was kept on the
anxious seat for fully half an hour before
he was ushered Into the august presence of
the grand Inquest. After being welcomed
by the members of tbo Jury the gov
ernor was requested to hold up his right
baud, and was sworn in by foreman Rich
esnn to truly answer such questions as
might be propounded, and also not to di
vulge his testimony. (Uvlng gone through
this ordeal with a nervous movement of
the right band and a colorless cheek, he
was requested to scut himself in a revolving
chair at the cast end of th Jury room, be
tween a double column of desks at which
the Jurors were seated.
His Excellency then made affirmation of
his name, uge, birthplace and official
position. Jas. Johnson, Iho official steno
grapher of the Orliiiinul court, who had re
covered from yesterday's Indisposition, was
at hand and recorded the testimony. A. A.
Oldlleld, thn stenographer who is said to
have transcribed tho stolen evidence of iho
last grand Jury, uneasily occupied a seat in
the ante-room beside Hon. Jos. G. Lodge,
the attorney, tluth had boon summoned as
witnesses, and both wero anxious to testify,
but they were told to wait until later iu tbo
day. A woman in black and three deputy
Janitors who were tlso In altrud
unco as witnesses, were relieved from fur
t her attendance, Cupt. McClay, thn voter

The see -e ire of sUsto has addressed a
letter io Hie secreiarv of the Civil service
commission lu reply to an Inquiry as to
what branch of tbo sorvico in the several
bureaus of the state department will re
quire examination for adrniaaton. lie says,
quotiiig ex-SecreUry Fish, that tho clerical
force ut the department is small and should
have the personal confidence of tbe head of
thn department, knowledse of International
law mil practical familiarity with many
foreign languages. A power of reticence
is also a requisite which I ascertained only
by test, experience or intimate personal
knowledge of the party, and eviuot be de
termined by any exammation by i
board. The secretary then goes on to say
thai it is necessary that must of tho clerks
iu tbo Department of Stale should havo at
least sufficient knowledge of ono or more
foreign languages to read them In the
original documents. Nevcrtholoea, it Is not
absolutely necessary that every clerk should
have this qualification, as bis ability lu
other directions may more than couipeussto
for its lack. But it is always necessary thai
twenty employes of this department should
have a fair knowledge of French, Gorman,
Spanish or Italian. "Under these circum
stances I would suggest that special ex
amination bo given io all applicants who
may wish to enter this department whlob
shall conform in some measure to ex
amination heretofore required in case ol
applicants for certaiu grades and consulates,
and that are now required tn caso ot ap
plicants for clerkships. " .
