Washington. Dec. CI. Commissioner
of I'ensiun Evans yesterday appeared
before the senate committee tn civil
service and retrenchment, which is con
ducting an investigation Into the opera
tion of the civil Berviea system. Kvans
was questier.rd at length by Lodge and
Iritchard about the civil service system
and its application to the pen5ion office
force. He expressed the opinion that
the law did not accomplish the results
Its frb nds Insisted that it did. The best
mn in his office were tln-se who had
come In under the so-called "etoils sys
tem. They did their duty and expected
to ho'. 1 their positions by so doing. The
I nsi. n examining boards, he said.

Thought, however, that the entire ey's
tern cf appointing the boards was
wrong, that ail cf them ought to be under-
a uniform system of appointment.
The commissioner believed that the
head cf a bureau was in the best qual
ified position to pass upon the efficiency
of a clerk, and that he ought not to be
hampered la removing a tlerk for In
efficiency. If permitted to do so he could
remove at least 100 clerks from hisoffice
without affectirg the efficiency of the
furce. He thought it would be desirable
to have a definite tenure cf office r.ct
exceeding ten years, so that every year
about 10 per cent, cf new blood could be
Infused into the force. This would do
away with the abuses resulting from
some clerks remaining in office too lor.g.
The eomrr.lsdcner thought some reform
would have to be enacted or the country
would have the infliction of civil pen
sion list. ITe believed it was a mistake
to include la the classified service the
cpecial examiners, medical boards,
chiefs of divisions and all others re
ceiving salaries exceeding 11,100.
Some More Trouble fur Reddlngton.
Washington, Dec. 1. The sub-committee
of the senate committee on Pa
cific railroads yesterday heard F. M.
Gideon, the attorney who was charged
by J. K. Keddington on Saturday with
having manipulated the land efflce rec
ords. Gideon denied every allegation
made by Ileddlngton, and insisted that
there was no possibility of manipulating
the records in the manner charged, even
If he had so desired. Alex Drftton testi
fied that the boots and papers in the
land office had to go through a number
of hands end four or five divisions cf
the land office, making it Impossible for
any one man to manipulate them in the
tr.ar.ner charced by Ueddinrton.
