Somo weeks ngo tlio Civil Sorvlce
Commission decided to hereafter mako
public the lists of ellglblcs for appoint
ment to tho scveial branches of tho
civil set vice. Tho Commissioners de
cided to ntlopt tills courso In tho belief
nud hopo that It w ould do nwny with
many of tho abuses which prevailed
while the lists wcro kept stcict, besides
giving all persons who took tho exam
inations nn opportunity to know their
relative positions on tlio eligible llsls.
Just how to mako these lists public has
been n perplexing pioblcm. In tlio
taso of local examinations for places lu
the customs and po-.tal scivlco, It has
been Dually decided to post tliopcicent
age obtalued by each applicant In bul
letin Blinpo In somo conspicuous plnco
vvhcio thonppllcnnts nnd nil others In
Iciestcdcan havo nu opportunity of
copying the percentage.
'I he same courso w HI bo pursued with
regard to certifications of eligibility for
these ofllcos mndo to tho appointing
power. This method of making tho
local eligible lists public, however, can
hardly bo applied to tho lists of ellglblcs
In possession of the Commission at Its
headquarters In this city, for tho tcason
that there aro such n great number of
llieso lists. In view of this circum
stance, the Commission has been com
pelled to adopt a new method, and will
hereafter notify each candidate for on
appointment lo tho general service of
his standing and perccntago by mall.
Tho civil service rules "provide that
chiefs of divisions who aro oxempt fiom
lho operations of tho Civil Servico law
may bo allowed to tako n non-compcti-ttvo
examination for a position lower
than Hint which they now occupy.
This is dono In ordci Hint persons who
seivc In theso excepted places will not
bo compelled to nbandon tlio scivlco
when tlitlr icslgnatlons mo requested
on changes or ndmlnlstintlon, but can
avail themselves of tho opportunity of
feud lo toko a subordinate olhcc. Com
missioner ltooscvelt expresses himself
as opposed to this practice, and is
strongly advocating a chango In tho
lilies by which theo persons, If thoy de
she to icmalu In tho servico when their
icslgnalions ns chiefs are demanded,
shnll bo compelled to Btnud compelltlvo
examinations and be assigned to llio eli
gible list for certification nnd appoint
ment In the snmo manner ns other ap
plicants. In tho District Oltlcoii.
It Is runioicd that a gical many
chnnges will tnko plnco In tho District
ofllccs, nnd thero Is u gcncial feeling of
tiniest nmong tlio employes In tlio big
uel building on First street. During
the week the Commissioners hnvo held
u immbci of lengthy board sessions, nt
which It Is understood that tho claims
of n number of applicant for Important
positions within their gift weio thor
oughly discussed. The applications on
fllo go way up Into tho huuili eels, nnd
nro neatly filed and indexed so Hint
when called for they may be piodueed
Immediately. And they aro called for
nulto often, which shows plainly that
tho Cominlssloncis havo somo changes
under consldciatlon.
It Is thought by well-lnfouiied peo
ple that they will bo vety conscratlvo,
howcvei, nnd n number go so far as to
say that no Inipoilant changes will bo
made until Congress meets nnd their
nominations mo cither continued or ie
jetled. Thoy weio placed In an ex
ceedingly dlsagiceablo podtlon, say
these people, by being nominated nflcr
Congic-s had adjourned nntl mo do
lennlned to bo couticoiis In their ne
lions. Any mistake might bo fatal to
confirmation and they do not pinpoint
lo do anything that would piejudleo
their chances for continuation, bo the
oftlcc-holdcishavo lids Idea to them
selves and hope It w 111 prove true, but
alt the same somo of them feel nny
thing but scenic. Thcie Is an Immense
amount of Influence being biought to
bear In certain positions, nud it Is
doubt ful If tho Incumbents can bring
enough forwaid to meet It. The gen
tinl opinion is that if changos aro to bo
made they will tako placo during tlio
coming w tck. The Commissioners aro
non committal nnd pawy nil questions
