Wilson of tho Kugiueer Corps will assumo tho dutlos of tho position of Commissioner of Public Buildings nnd Grounds In this District on Juno 1, in addition to his present duties as assistant to tho Chief of Engineers in charge of foititlcattons. Tho solcctiou of Colonol Wilson for this duty was determined upon and statod somo weeks ago, and Is regarded by army officers ns tho best selection possiblo. Colonol Wilson was horn in Washington, and Is n property-holder hero, Ho Is about -is years of age, nnd has a biilllaut nnd successful career as an artiilory otllcor during tho war nnd ns, an ongineor on works of Import ant National Improvements slnco tho closo of tho war. no is thoroughly qualified for tho duties of his now position.

Tho absorbing topic In tho Treasury De partment, nnd in all administrative roforiu circlesjust now, Is tho com so to bo pur sued In rcfcionco to chlofs of division. This largo class of public sorvants, who havo risen fioni tho ranks of clerkship by long and faithful sorvlco, and ncquired valuable experience and knowledge, aio not pto tcctcd by tho clvll-servico law, Tho Presi dent has said that theso are not political places nnd that faithful and olllclont meu hi theso positions will not ho disturbed, a tho Treasury Department four chlofs of division havo bcon displaced. Tlrst, tho chiofof tho Appointment Division mado room for Hlggius, then two chlofs in tho Sixth Auditor's olllco weio superseded by parthan nppolntcos, nud theu tho chief of tho Customs Division retired by request. Theso changes glvo rise to dally rumors of icqucsts for tho icslgnatlon of chiefs of di vision, nnd tho most olllclont ns well ns tho least compotont chiefs aro named by theso rumors, Somo Treasury officials bcllovo that Secre tary Manning has already yielded to pres sure in two or tin co cases nud is not able to wlthstntid tho forco "brought to bear upon him, From this tlioy nrguo that nearly all tho chiefs of division will go, More con servative officials arguo thnt In two months tho Sectctary lias mado hut ouo serious error in this diicctlon, and that very early in his ndminlstiatlon, nnd followed by n storm of criticism and protest. They do not bcllovo that chiefs of division will ho iciuovcd without cause. They bollovo Secretary Manning is pononally disin clined to thus vlolato tlio spirit of tho clvll-servico law where ho can .avoid it. AFslstant Secretary Fairchild is strongly opposed to such discharges. It is under stood thnt Appointment Clork Hlggius recently picparcd for Secretary Manning a list of all porsarjs In tho Treasury Doptrt ment subect to icmov.il nnd roplacumont it his discretion. This list embraced ovoiy employe- nbovo tlio $1,000 grado of clerkship nnd bolow tho positions to which Presiden tial appolntmonts nro mado. This list has nhcaily been materially redueod by cross lug oil' the deputy chiefs of divisions who aro clearly protected by tho clvll-sorvico law nud many other reductions aro ox peeled. Tlio prcssuro for appolatmont will undoubtedly lead to tho displacement of nil but the conspicuously efficient and compo tcntjiicn, but it Is confidently claimed that nono of theso will bo disturbed.
