In the platform of the Republican

support of the labor clement. This
committee reported its wishes to the
labor convention and came home and
was continued on duty after reporting
to the labor council. Yesterday a meet
ing of a quorum of this committee was
held, at which resolutions were passed

executive committee of the labor con

tivity. A final resolution was .passed
that this committee take steps at once

goes without saying that Major Jones,

Commission Asks a Review of the Comp
troller's Decision Gov. Roosevelt In
vited by the President to Consult Abont
Army Appointments 'Koajh Rider"
Chief Has Something to Say Abont the
Philippines Status of Onr New Island
Washington, July 10. The civil ser
vice commission has made public Its
letter to the secretary of the treasury
of June 23 last asking that the comp
troller of the treasury be requested to
lview his recent decision In the mat
ter of the alleged illegal appointment
of deputy United States marshals. In
the course of his decision the comptrol
ler said: "I will not go back of the cer
tificate of appointment by the head of
a department or appointing power,
where no direct law has been violated.
and attempt to ascertain whether such
officer in making snch appointment has
disregarded some rule or regulation of
the civil service commission or some
rule or regulation of his own regarding
the classiiied service."
Makea a Clear Itiatinctiou.
The comptroller makes a clear dis
tinction between the violation of law
by the president and the violation of
the rules and regulations made by mm,
and says: "I prefer to let the responsi
bility rest where it rightfully belongs,
and follow the precedent of years In
my office -to recognize the certthcate
of appointment of the head of a depart
ment or other appointing power to of
fice or place, where suc-h appointment
is not in violation of law or without
authority of law."
Comuiiaaioiiera Inaist on Their Point.
The commissioners in their letter
contend that the appointments under
consideration were made in violation
of the express terms of the law, and
quote numerous authorities to show
that the rules and regulations have all
the force and effect of law, and that
exceptions to these rules and regula
tions can Le legally made only in the
manner provided by the law. The let
ter says: "The only question left at Is
sue is how, if at all, a position once In
the classified service can be legally ex
cepted or withdrawn from the require
ments of law Incident to its classifica
tion. Appointments at Iasne Declared Illegal.
"And it has already been pointed out
in the first part of this communication
(1) that the law prescribes a certain
definite manner in which only the pos
ition can be thus withdrawn or ex
cepted; (2) that In the case before the
comptroller the position was not with
drawn or excepted in the manner pre
scribed; and (3) consequently tha con
clusion cannot be escaped that the ap
pointment to the position in a manner
contrary to that prescribed was illegal
and void, and hence the person ap
pointed was not entitled to any com
pensation or emolument accruing to
CONSULTS WITH OOV. ROOSEVELT.
President Wants Help in Deciding; on Ap
pointment in the Army.
Washington, July 10. Governor
Roosevelt was the guest of the presi
dent from Saturday afternoon until
yesterday morning, when he returned
to New York. There were all sorts of
rumors accounting for the governor's
visit, but this is what he said: "I have
come on by request of the president to
go over with him and with the officials
of the war department certain ques
tions affecting the new volunteer army.
especially as regards the personnel of
the officers. The president has told me
that he wishes only recommendations'
based upon the efficiency of the men
recommended, and that he will pay
heed to no others. Most certainly I
should give no others. My own recom

to members of the volunteers of the
New York regiments of whose merits
I have, as governor, not merely official
knowledge, but also the knowledge

among their superiors.
"Of course every American worthy

in his resolute purpose to bring the in

STATCS OF OI B ISLANDS.
Not Part of the Territory of the United
States, Says a Commission.
Washington, July 10. An opinion
rendered by the insular commission
holds that the islands now In possession
of the United States as a result of the
war with Spain are not part of the ter
ritory of the United State?. It has been
generally conceded, the commission
says, that we can sell, give away or
turn over to their inhabitants these Isl
ands. If this be true they cannot be
part of our territory, as the United
States can neither sell nor alienate any
portion of its territry. nor, as was set
tled by the war of secession, can any
portion of the territory alienate itself.
Once Porto Rico and the other isl
ands are recognized as territory of the
United States the decision the commis
sion holds irrevocable. All laws of
the United States are Immediately ex
tended over the islands, citizenship is
conferred upon . the inhabitants and
commerce between the islands and the
United States becomes free.

Manila, July 10, 8 a. m. It has been
