FOR THE GOVERNMENT SERVICE
Among the government publioa
tions that will Boon be reaily for
public distribution ia the eighteenth
report of the civil service commis
sion, covering the period from July 1,
1900, to .lime 30, 1901.
The report proper (as distinguish
ed from the appendix) is largely
statistical. It opens with the state
ment that 47,073 persons were ex
amined during the .year, of whom 21,
028 were examined for the depart
mental service: This service does
not include merely the departments
at Washington, but all the federal
classified services outside of Wash
ington, with the exception of the
postal, customs, internal revenue, and
government printing services. Thus,
the railway mail and Indian services
are divisions of the departmental
service. Nearly 21,000 persons were
examined for the postoffice service,
or a little over a thousand less than
the numebr examined for the depart
mental service. About CO per1 cent,
or, 83,7.19, of those taking examina
tions passed, and 14,959 failed. Com
pared with the year previous, this
represented an increase of 2,112 in the
number of persons examined, a de
crease -of 1,2S9 in the number who
passed, an.l nn increase of 3,410 in
the number who failed.
The total number of persons re
ceiving appointment, including the
Philippine service and the municipal
service of the District of Columbia,
neither of which is subject to the
provisions of the civil service act,
was 9,870, distributed as follows:
Departmental service (excluding the
railway mail and Indian services),1
3,933; railway mail service, 8IG; In
dian service, 27G; postoffice service,
4,288; custom house service, 302; gov
ernment printing service. 172; inter
nal revenue service, S3. Two-thirds of
the appointments in the departmen
tal service proper and nearly one-half
of the appointments in the Indian
service were of persons who had
passed non-educational examina
tions. These examinations, which
are sometimes termed registration
or experience examinations, are main
ly based upon a consideration of the
length and quality of the experience
and the physical fitness of applicants.
l'hev are usually held for positions
requiring a knowledge of one of the
mechanical trades or skilled manual
occupations. Inquiry is made by
means of certificates from employ
ers and fellow-workmen concerning
qualifications. A jrrrscrihed period
of service at a trade is usually a re
quirement. The examinations for
compositors, pressmen, etc., in the
government printing office are not
included in this class, since in these
scholastic tests are essential. The
commission states in the report that
it has been unable to make the re
gistration system for workmen as
thorough as is desirable for lack of
Reference Given to Veterans.
Concerning the preference given to
I'nited States soldiers and sailors
honorably discharged for disability
incurred in line of duty the report
With a view to securing to those
honorably discharged from the mili
tary or naval service by reason of
disability incurred in linv of duty the
benefits granted by section 1754 of
the revised statutes, the civil service
rules give preference to such per
sons in examinations by requiring
them to obtain an average of only 05
in order to pass, in certification by
placing their names at the head of
the register before all others not
veterans, and in exempting them
from all age limitations. The pref
erence thus conferred extends to all
who have nt any tiTne been dis
charged from the military or naval
service by reason of disability incur
red in line of duty, and is not con
fined to those who have served dur
ing a war.
A table accompanying shows that
45 appointments of preference claim
ants were made during the year, most
of these being to positions in the
departments at Washington. The
average age of these preference
claimants was less than 50 years. In
the appendix to the report the pretr
erence given to honorably discharged
veterans of the war pf the relrellion
and the Spanish-Amenican war in
the matter of reinstatement to the
civil service is mentioned. Such vet
erans, their widows, and army nurses
of either of these wars may be rein
stated without regard to the length
of time they haveleen separated from
the civil service. Th) at this s a sub
stantial benefit apears from the fact
that during the fiscal year covered
by the report 131 such persons were
reinstated, or over 15 per cent on the
entire number of reinstatements,
ransfers. Temporary Appointments, Etc.
The commission regards the num
ber of transfers effected during the
year (559) as excessively large, and
in the interest of the individual rath
er than the public service, and at
tention is called to the fact that the
transfer rule has since been amend
ed to restrict transfers within the
same line of work.
At the end 'of the statistical por
tion of the report proper are pre
sented the results of a comparison
of the number of persons examined,
appointed, transferred, etc., during
the fiscal year ended .Tune 30, 1901,
with the corresponding figures for
the previous fiscal year. From this it
appears that there was nn increase of
1,559 in the number of persons who
took competitive examinations, and
an . increase. of 50S in the
number who received appointment.
There was a decrease of 327 in the
number of appointments from non-
educational examinations. The in
crease in the' number of temporarv
appointments was large, being 448
over the previous year. It may be
stated, in this connection, that the
rule governing temporary appoint
ments has since been amended
with a view to confining them more
strictly to persons who have passed
a competitive examination. 'There
appears an increase in the number of
transfers of 100, and a decrease in
the number or reinstatements of
Extent of Classified Service.
A brief statement of the extent of
the service subject to the civil ser
vice act and rules is a feature of
the report. From this it appears
that in the entire executive service
of the government there are in
round numbers 235,000 places, of
which number about 121.000 nre
classified. Of the 114,000 remaining
unclassified, 72,498 are those of
fourth-el ass post mast ers. The an
nual expenditure for salaries for the
entire executive service is stated to
be about $130,000,000, and of this,
$83,000,000, or nearly two-thirds, goes
to salaries for positions subject to
the civil service rules.
What Positions Should be CltsslHed.
The view of the commission as to
what positions should properly be
classified appears in the following
((notation from the report:
Substantially all the positions in
the executive service, with exception
of those requiring administrative
ibility. those of confidential nature,
and those of mere laborers, can be
properly made subject to practical
tests of fitness by this commission.
The position requiring administra
tive ability or supervisory capacity
should, as a rule, be filled by promo
tion or transfer, and as a matter of
fact, the positions of a confidential
nature, or those which are of a fiduci
ary character, could also be better
"filled in most cases by the transfer or
promotion of qualified persons al
ready in the service. The number of
positions which can not, with advan
tage to the service, le made subject
to competitive examination in some
form is very small, and is confined to
that limited class of positions the
occupants of which are required to
originate action involving the general
policy of the administration.
' Opportunities for Appointment
l'robably the most interesting por
tion of the report to the general
public will be that part of it headed
"Opportunities for Appointment, in
the report of the chief examiner. An
abstract of this is as" follows: For
men, the best opportunities are of
fered through the stenography and
typewriting exanuujf rows, which are
given twice a year. For several years
all men who have passed in both of
these branches have been offered ap
pointments, except those who placed
the minimum salary they were will
ing to accept at so large a figure as
to preclude their appointment.
About 50 per cent of the men passing
the bookkeeper examination receive
appointments. For sonic time past
all the eligible.s from the examination
for aid in the coast and geodetic sur
vey,' which examination requires a
fair knowledge of higher mathemat
ics, mathematical astronomy, and
physics, surveying, and some knowl
edge of modern Knropean languages,
have been offered appointment. Those
who have passed the examinations
for topographic draftsman, assistant
topographer, and copyist topographic
draftsman, for the last three or four
years, have usually been offered ap
pointment, the salaries ranging from
$840 to $1,500 per annum. Persons
passing the examinations for assist
ant examiner of patents, civil and
electrical, and civil and mechanical
engineer, nre reasonably sure of ap
pointment. The entrance salary for
the position of assistant examiner of
patents is $1,200, with a good chance
for promotion. The entrance salary
for the engineer examinations above
mentioned is about $1,500 per annum.
Other examinations" for the depart
mental service which offer good op
portunities for appointment to men
are that of inspector of meats, in the
bureau of animal industry, and that
for junior civil engineer. In the rail
way mail service from 700 to 800 ap
pointments a year have been made
for the last four or five years, at an
entrance salary of $ per annum.
Most of the eligibles from the differ
ent teacher examinal ions for the In
dian service are usually appointed, nt
entrance salaries of from $000 to $900
per annum. Persons who pass the
examinations for bookbinder, press
man, electrotype finisher, electrotype
molder, and stereotyper, for the gov
ernment printing office, have very
good opportunities for appointment.
The supply of compositor eligibles,
on the other hand, is usually ' consid
erably in excess of the demand.
Chanees for Women.
The opportunities for the appoint
ment of women in the classified serv
ice as a whole are not flattering. The
chief examiner says:
At present but few women are or
dinarily appointed to the general de
partmental and government printing
service, except in the Indian service,
the bureau of engraving and printing,
and the position of skilled laborer in
the government printing otlice. How
ever, a small number of w omen clerks
and stenograpners and typewriters
are appointed each year. The oppor
tunities for women Vligih'" from the
examinations for the different kinds
of teachers in the Indian service are
'ery good. Quite a number of ap
pointments are also made in the Jn
dian service from the trained nurse
and matron examinations.
Scope and Character of Examinations
The scope and character of the ex
aminations appear in brief in the
manual of examinations published by
the commission, of which about 90,-
000 copies are furnished applicants
during the year covered by the re
port. - The number of applications for
examination was 59,552, an average of
1,145 per week. The chief examiner
states that during the year "the ex
amining division, assisted by experts
detailed from the different depart
merits for that purpose, prepared ex
animations under 550 distinct titles,"
that 213 of the examinations includ
ed specific tests of either profession
al, scientific, technical or general ed
ucation, and 337 were registration
examinations, which have been here
tofore described. The examinations
held during the year required the
preparation of 3G5 different sets of
tests. The above would seem to jus
tify the statement made by the com
missioners that "the examinations
held to meet the needs of
the service embrace about 4(H) differ
ent qualifications, which cover a
wider range than any educational in
stitution in the country." There are
now 1,338 local civil service boards
throughout the country, so that, as a
rule, no one is compelled to travel
any great distance in order to be ex
Lack or Facilities.
Attention is called in the report to
the fact that although, during the
past seven or eight years, the num
ber of classified positions has increas
ed from a little over 30,000 to more
than 100,000, and the number of a)-
point merits per year from about 4.000
to about 10,000, no additional em
ployes have been provided by con
gress to meet this enormous increase.
This difficulty is only partially met
by the detail of employes from other
departments, for the chief examiner
With the present limited appropri
ations it has been impossible to con
duct the examining work of the com
mission in a satisfactory manner.

Part 1 of the appendix to the re
port conjUtins, among other things,
the civil service! act, rules, and regu
lations, the statutes particularly af
fecting the classified service, and the

of the report is brought substanti
ally down to dale, and includes the
numerous important changes that
have been made in the civil service
rules during the past year, together

Other Features of the Iteport.
Parts 2 and 3 contain, respectively,
the regulations governing the classi
fied service and a history of the acts
and rules throughout the country
luring the year covered by the re
port. In part 3 are also extracts
from the reports of government offi
cers concerning the operation tf the
act and rules. Among these is
the reeonimedation of the com
missioners of the District of Col
umbia, made to the president, that

placed, by appropriate legislation, in
the classified civil service list.
Included in this division of the re
port arc also the conclusions and rec
conimendations of a committee of the

gue upon the subject of suerannua-'
tion in the civil service, and a paper
by JIon. W. I). Foulke. entitled "The
Civil Service in our New Dependen

first time, a complete compilation of
the civil service rules, the amend
ments thereto, and orders of classifi
cation, arranged chronologically,
from May 7, 1S83. when the first rules
were promulgated by President Ar
thur, down to August 2 of the pres
