CALLED CIVIL SEE VICE EXTENSION.
AClrcnlmr Received by I'otrautr Weill
Applicable to Postal Employe The
Meaning or the Order and the Purpose of
It Issuance Just Now A. Very Thong-ht-fal
Act on the Part ot the President.
Notice has been received by Postmaster
Wills from Postmaster-General Wana-
maker setting forth the txtemtion by
President Harrison of the civil service
commission to all free delivery offices.
The circular directs the postmitster to
select five employes from among those
included under the provisions of the
ricent extension of civil service rules, to
act as a board t txaminers of al. appli
cants for positions. And it says further:
Kztenslon of CIvU Service.
Prior to this action the civil service
rules applied only to those poetofflces
which had as many as SO employes.
Fifty -three offices were thus clt.ssifled.
Now the service extends to all e nployts
below the postmaster, including postal
clerks, money oruer clerks, carriers, reg
ular and substitute, and otbers, eicepting
special delivery messengers, at a l offices
to which the free delivery system has
been applied. Of the 54S offices thus ad
ded to the classified service, 67
have 25 or more, but lew than
50 employes; 363 have 10 but less
thin 25 employes, and 219 htye less
thn lOercp'oyes. The commisMon will
at once proceed with the organization
of boards of examiners, the holding of
eliminations, and the preparation of eli
gible registers. As soon as elig ble reg-i-iiers
have been established at ar y office
the rules will go into effect at thht office.
Some considerable time will necessarily
elapse before the rules will be i l active
operation at all of these oftteos. The
whole number of persens added to the
classified service by this ac ion is 7,610,
and these persoos btv.ng been brought
into the cl ts h;d civil service by an ex
tension of the classification under the act
of July 16, 1883. are entitled to all the
rights and privileges that they would be
entitled to had they been appointed afte
txsmination uodir the act.
The authority and duty of removal at
a posU'fflce are left undisturbed by the
civil fervice law and rules, eictpt that a
removal cannot be legally made because
a person in the service has refused to be
coerced in political action, or has refused
to con'nbute for political purposes, or has
refused to render political seivice.
Want to Give Them a CinnV
Postmaster Wells stated this morning
tbat his conception of the new crder was
that hereafter all applications lor posul
positior.8 must go direct to the civil snr
ice commission by whom they must e
examined and by whom must be deter
minid the qualifications aod eligibility of
the candidates. It is his opinion also,
that hereafter no employe of the oBca,
n matter whit the capacity, wbethtr
clerk or mail carrier, could be
removed without cause acepttble
t the civil service coo, mission.
No one will for a moment, cf course,
fail to conceive of the purpose and in
tent of President Harrison's extension of
the civil service rules just at this particu
lar time. Nor will anyone deny the
president the authority of taking his own
view of the extent and sope of the com
mission's duty and when and how it
should be applied and when a id how it
should not be applied. Its post-election
significance is too apparent to nacessitate
expatiating thereupon. The president
may bave bis own views of civ 1 service.
and may enforce those views while in
office. The same privilege wi!l ba ex
tended his successor in the executive
It will not be the part of wsdomfir
postal i mot ives to lay too much stress
on the assurance thus offered th in by the
powers which placed them in oClce. For
unfortunately for them there ii besides
the civil service law of this euntry a
tenure of office law that is qu te as im
portant and effective and time honored
