Beaaties of the Theory ami Difficulties
in the Practice.
The Blind Faith in the Power
of Influenoe.
Manner of Making Appointments and
WasmI.\oro*, June 14, 1877.
The theory oI civil gurvice roforrn is very fsa
clnatlns. It it ? pretty gilded and supar-coatod pill,
oily when some ot tbe reformers coine to take It them
selves they make very wry laocs over It. Thus Wash
ington baa a large namber of "vlaiilug soreheads,"
who como na oivll service reiorinors to save tbe heads
of their friends. A droll case of tbta kind wu shown
mo tho other day. A olork In the Treasury Depart
mem was marked lor discharge on account of rather
flaring and various Inefficiency. Ilia Iriends promptly
came lorwurd to plead for him, and among the In
Ducnci's brought to bear was some, 1 am assured, on
?lio part of a newspaper which has beon con
spicuous lor Its advocacy of civil service reform
Tho strugglo lor his* retention was so ou.

?latency goos a good way with busy peoplo,
but at last this clerk was required to nuswer the quiw

On this return be waa counted out, civil sorvlce or no
civil scrvico. If you talk with Treasury and other
officials you may hear a good many stories not mucn
worso than this. For Instance, an Inlluontlal Congress
man la very anxious to have a reiutivo appointed.
Uo la promised that bla mitu aball go before the Treas
ury clvii scrvico examiners as soon as a vacancy hap
pens. Ho Is in groat basto, and wants it done at
once. '"But why can't your man wait ? few weeks r"
!? at last asked, and he frankly raphes, '-because I
?m paying his board at the hotel while he la
waiting." Again, thoro is a story of a WosU
era republican newspaper, whose proprietors
write to a member of the Cubiuet demanding tbut their
correspondent shall be promoted to a butter place la
the Department; "She is aa excellent correspondent
und has served us faithfully and done good work, au4
tho promotion Is duo to her merits and to us." And
the reply goes back taat us she Is undoubtedly an ex
cellent correspondent, her employers ought to ruiso
her salary and givo hor a better place in their olilec.
And away goes another friend ol civil aervioe rolorrn.
Buch things as these naturally sadden tho beans of
politicians and mouibors of Congross, and lorce them
to aeo that the i'residout's Southern policy 1a a failure.
The Treasury Department la niuurally the objective
po.nt ol the ollloo seeking cuuipaign in Washington.
Tbe Htate Department hus but little to give nway; the
Interior Department, under Secretary Schurz, is a
discouraging place, because lie bus been cutting down
tbe lorco and bis well known churucler as a tierce
civil servloe reformer has discouraged attack. But

JOliiN SEKKMAN, iSoorotary.
A largo Dumber of the Secretary's political friend*
evidently thought this a ratbor eluboruto |oko. H? ,H
understood to bavo explained to a good luauy that ho
was "dead In earnest;" but it shows how dull people
no, thut some one turns up almost daily who doos not
it all believe that Mr. Sherman means It. It is under
lined thit the roports of heads or bureaus and divl.
?ions are gradually gone over, in order to dismiss ibn*e
reported for incompetence or bad liabita, and to re.
move also superfluous clerks; and while, outside of the
Bureau of Lngraving and JTInt.ng, not many removals
have boen made, there will he u reduction of the lorce

The manner of dealing with appumtments and re
movuls In the Treasury DepaiCmeut ought to bo pub
llely explained, because It would save a (food many
honest people the trouble of coming here and trio
%orryof getting up elaborate recommendations from
political sources. Hore >e what, on inquiry, I have

earefnl to select lor retention thojo whose record
?b*wed Iheia to havs been most capable and faitkinl.
II. TM Searstsry firder^d a redact len of tbe force In

III. Tbere are cases where clerks are removed for

are of courae supplied; but It is positively asMnwl by ?
Treasury officials thai uo merely arbitrary removals
of clerks have been or will bu made; no one la rotated

tub mamas*!. or bblativkb.
IV. The latest order causing removals is that under
which the Secretary has determined to dismiss rela
tives of clerks also holding office. There seems some
thing whimsical and absurd aoout this rule, but 1 run
told that it was necessary m order to break up family
rings la the departments, thus, It Is said, a father
and his son, holding placet, aad perhaps both compe
torn, have bean known to axe their knowledge of lbs
department affairs and their tnllueuce to keep in a son
who was notoriously incompetent It Is asserted that
abuses of this kind hav? sprung up; but, alter all, it
seems the number liable to dismissal under lUls rule
will ba less than one hundred?some say not more than
fitly. but the Inquiry has brought out ions odd ousts
ol larnily oflics-holding. The late Senator iirowniow,
for Instance, coilaluly look good care of bis lainily at
the government expense. Here is a list of seven of
them, all office-holders:?
1. Cllffe, father-in-law of James Urowulow. son of
William u. Hrownlnw, collector of iiileruul revenue
r ilth renncssfo district.
? John Hrownlnw, sou ol William (i. urowulow, in
ternal revenue agent.
a Harry Aiken, son-in-law of William <J. Urowulow. I
Clerk United States District Court, Knoxville, Tenii. i
A capital officer.
4. AUen's lather, Register In bankruptcy.
6. Boy n ton, son-in-law of William G. Urowulow,
puoslun agent, Knoiville.
B. ham Muni, postmaster atCloveland, Tenn., brother
In-law of William U. Jirowulow.
T. William liule. postinansr, Knoxville. partner of I
William O. Urowulow in the publication of the Knox
vllle CUronuUt.
Ono wonders whether other SeuatorB bave been an '
carelul providers.
V. It should be understood by office seekers that :
political influence Is uut now nocdod in any casa. The
old system of piling up recoiuuiondatlons from Sena
tors, lleprcsentatlvos and prominent politicians con
tinues ; but applicants only wasto thAir time and
paper. A nolo of Introduction from any mspectablo ,
person is all that IS required. If tlu-ra aro iio vacancios
tbe applloant had bettor return homo at once; Iftbnro
are then applicants are givan permission to go before
a civil scrvlce examining board, and II they pass !
creditably they may poesibly have a remote chance to
get a $?<)0 clerkship Tbo higher pluoes are Oiled by
promotion for good semes from the lower urados. and
1 am told that since the 4th or March this rule
has boen earrlod out. The Treasury Department
now contains aoout 2,200 people, and thore will bo in |
all leas than 260 removals, most of which arc reduc
tions. A groat proportion ol the applicants aro nnablo
to paas even the very simple examination required for
a $yoo place. All ths depurtmeuts aro crowded with
applications lor office, most of thorn on the scoro of
tlie absolute poverty of the applicants, who seem to
consider tbe government an eleemosynary loan
VI. Ia the Treasury Department tbo luw requires
that the clerkships aud other places shall be distrib
uted among tbe States according to population. 1
believe this law applies only to tbe Treasury. There
is accordingly a table showing what number of places
each State is untitled to and what number It actually
has. Maine, for instance, is entitled to 32 places
and bus T7 in otlloe; New Hampshire is entitled
to 16 and has 02; New York la entitled to 210 ana has
232; Pennsylvania is entitled to 170 and has 210. Ohio,
by tbe way, wblch Is ontitlol to 133, bas in ofllco 132.
It la said lu tbe departmont that Secretary Sherman
bas bsen lodispcod to males Uhlo appointments any
where, lest be should bo cbatgud with favoritism.
VII. Ucnce, lu briof, appointments aro obtained in
the Treasury, und, in fact, lu all tho departments,
now, in tbia wayWhen a man or woman applies It
should be wub a short letter from some responsible
person, certifying to tbe applicant's character. If,
thereupon, U Is loand that the quota from the appli
cant's State Is not already full?a vory unlikely thing?
bo is told that wbcuovor a vacancy occurs?another
very unlikely event?he snail bave permission to go
boiore tbe Kxaminlog Board to be examined. If he
passes a creditable examination?a less likely
event than inuny think?he will tben be registered
on a preferred list lor appointment, to tako his turn,
as it is probable tbat others from bis Stute are already
on this list beloro hi in; and after all tbis trouble nud
much waiting be may finally got a *000 or $1,200
plaoe. I should ssy tbat In a hot summor a man or
woman would havo about as good a chance to be
struck by lightning as to get a $900 clerkship In Wash
ington In these days; bat still they come. Tho dun
culty Is tbey don't believe It. They think It is all a
sham. They go on believing tbat '?lullueuce" will do
It, 11? only tbey are perslstuut; aud tho 1'resldent and
his Cabinet owe it to the country now to adhere per
sistently to tholr rules; lor only by inflexiblo ad
herence can tbey get tbo great army of odlce-eeekors
and their allies, the politicians, to lot go.
kven when clerks are discharged bocauso
they aro not nocdod, or bocauso they are Inoompotsut,
they do not hesitate to bolieve that "Inlluciioo" will
surely save them. Tho word has hecomo p?rt of tho de
partment cant here, and you may bear a poor man or
woman say, In tho utmost soberness, "My inlluenco
will bo here to-morrow," or, "Here Ih sotno of my In
fluence, tbo rost of it has gono to California to spend
tho summer," or, "My Influence will be deeply
oflendod at this dismissal." Among the persons lately
removed "for cause" was a woman who, It was dis
covered, bad for some tlmo lent money to her Impo
cumous lellow clerks at the charge of ten per cent per
month. Another cujo was that ol a man who held a
third class clerkship and was found to bo worth over
two hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Considering
tho number of competent persons awaiting and deserv- ,
Ing promotion It was thought safe to cast bun upou
bis own modost resources.

friend* relieil mainly ou bis stri'nitth and srordupols, |
while Clirtaiol wua backed lor bl* enduring powers und 1
wonderful agility.
William J Austin was selected Judge by Miller, '
CUristol naming Wilheim Holgstar. Ibu two Judges 1
aimed tbu roitroe. to ardor to settle the match
during tbo svealng, it was agreed upon
that it bo laii should be oumiueti within
one hour each purly would be called
olT and sponged down before resinning the con
test If no fall should be obtained within throe hours
the winner ol tho first tall thereafter would bo declare.t
the winner of tho match. If only ouo lull should be
obtained boforo tbe tbree hours wero over, or il two
falls by tbe same party, tbe wrestler throwing the
other should bo considered the winner. Hut ir ono
fall should be obtained by audi si Je before the three
hours wort out, then the wrestling was to proceod
until ths second full lor uitber was obtained, tbe one
obtaining It being declared the winner.
At aboot half-past sight the men made their appear
suoe, and alter acknowledging la torn lbs plaudits
ol their friends, lacsd each other and began
tho slapping process which precedes an at
tempt ut a bold. Several attempts on both
Bides to secure a grip wero unsuccessful, whou Miller
as il tired of the pluy, rawed Obrlstol bodily in the
10 lb* ?ronnJ- ChrHrtol loll, bat
with the certainty of a cat alighted ou all lours.

and there sectnod little prospect for a fall on olther

It Is almost needless to say that tho mou perspired
copiously under the lively work thov bail accoin

patby lor thom. Tbo second contest, uitor a few In
troductory slaps to warm ono another up was fairlv
opened by Miller trying again to toss away bis opponent.
Tho effort, however, was a failure and tho men locked
again. Iu tho grapple Cliristol wss forced so uear tho

looked used up, but, with as much courags as
when he ben ?n, lockod arms,witb bis lowormg antagon

by a combination of weight and strength than skill
throw Obrlstol and held blm with both shoulders last

Coltno.s uiado his first appearance in the Maw Stakot
at Ascot This event Is a raco which generally briugs
to light soma two-yoar-olds doatlned lo take a leading
part lu racing history, though aomewhul
singularly, out ol the number of good hors-i
which havo wou it. Galoplu is the only one who hus
subsequently carried off the Darby. CoIIoofs won ths
New Stakes in the eiyle ol a roally good animal. In tha
Hursibourne Stakes, at Stockbrldgo. and In tha Juij
b takes, Newmarket July meeting, be waa boa to a. Mr.
Savllo's bay aolt llmballo andColinots ran a dead beat
for tho Sussex Slakes, at Goodwood, when with tw?
other deleats Coltuoss did not again appear nntll April
18 last year, wbou Wild Tommy and Great Torn
showed him tho way In tho Post Sweep-take., lot
three-year-olds, at Newmarket. Ho then disappointed
his ownor with his performance in tho Two lhousaud
Guluoas, wheu that *oritable putzle. Petrarch, cap
turtd It, and. with another unsucosnarul attompt, ha
was proparod lor tho lierby. lu that event he ran
very lest, UuUhing slxtn, wlula at Aac?it, in
tho Klgbioenth llleiinlal SUkos, ha had tha
uiorit of ruunlug clean away from Petrarch,
whose form thou, bowovor, netd not bo rolarrod
to, as both King Death und Day Wrndham beat him.
Co I was also victorious at Goodwood, making
mincemeat of All Heart In a iweapaUkea over a mllo
?nd a quarter; while at York, in tha Great Yorkshire
blakes, one mile aud throe-quarters, It was thought
that oue or two ol bis competitors might have made
him a raco, but they could not ralso tho scmblance ol
a gallop with him. It wna troe at this time that Colt
neaa hud not beaten much subsequent to tho
Derby*, but tboro waa no denying tho fact that
bo was in every way an improved horao, so after hi*
York victory bo waa supported lor the St Lcger at -0

In tho l.oger In not making a hotter bid for place
honors, their being six In front ol him at tha finish.
