TO BE FAVORED Indications Strong that Meas ure Affecting District Em ployes Will Be Reported. CONFERENCE IS HED Civil Service Commission Explains that District Residents Would Be Given Preference. By JOSEPH P. ANNIN. Conference yesterday between members of the House District Committee. two of the District Commissioners, and others indicated that the Tinkham bill cover ing District employes under the civil service will receive a favorable report from the full District committee. A letter from the Civil Service Commis sion removed a misapprehension that as in other civil service places. designations would bave to be distributed over various States and Territories. It was made clear that while subject to civil service rules under the terms of the Tinkharr bill. District positions would be filted as far as possIble from residents of the Dis trict. Probably the only bo" of contention not ironed out at yesterday's conference involved th.- treatment of emp!oves nov. in the serv!e. The Tinkham bill seeks to cover them in without examination and this is the polic.y urged by the Com missioners. I'ertain members of the com mittee. howev-r. imong them Chairman Vinson of the Judiciary subcommittee. were plainly in favor of forcing all pres ent emploes t,, stand examination for the continuance of their tnitre and on even ter-n7 with appli ants for their present positions. Wilson Revoked Order. In Cts connection It was pointed out that whilp President Taft, shortly before the expiration of his term. cov ered all foirth class postmasters into the civil -ervire. to the inteinse dis gust if severa! thousand "deserving Demo crats in Congress and out. President Wilson revoked that or 'er and forced al then incumbeits to stand for exam iat n before cover!ng into the civil servise. . \ni iv, the mind, of most, if not all miwhs h presert. and therein lay th oint of Jude Vin-on's -ontention, a. t h e thought that he was a poor pol I nian indeed woli could not so ar rar ge rra ttrs that a "deserving Demo 'ot oly passed the examination "I. t a l i g hir as fourth class post ma--- hut obtained the necessary ion that followed-that 14 if the i-mh,- of 'ongress from that District I pp. i to he in the good graces of lostmant' ;eneral Burleson.

Ave. "m""T's the Vinsoa proposal, declared that not only was it contraryAo precedent established by a long line of civil serv ice enactment, but that it would be dis tinctly unfair, Inasmuch an the obvious advantage in pronciency obtained by one who had served years in a partic tular position, would avail him nothing in an examination along general lines. This position also was taken by the two 1ommissioners. Mr. Brownlow and Maj. Kuts. The Commissioner. also opposed applying the provisions of the, Tinkharn bill to these District officers under whose Jurisdiction come ques tions of policy. The Commissioners questioned if a civil service test could be applied to ad vantage In the selection of raborers - or workers at trades. Richard Henry Dana, of Boston. president of the National Civil Service Reform League, replied that these tests were applied in Boston. Outlines Forms *of Tests. "In selecting an unskilled laborer, for instance." e explained, "we may take and throw ffty pounds of rocks and iron in a loose sack. The applicants are then required to shoulder this weight, and are marked upon the apparent ease with which they handle it. "Or if we are selecting plasterers, we may put the applicants in a large room and mark off seetions of the wall to be plastered, marking the applicants upon the excellency of the work they accom pllsh within a limited length of time. Dr. Charles S. Emmons, of the East Washington Citizens' Association, spoke .in opposition to the bill, claiming that satisfptcory results were obtained under the present system. A letter from Commissioner Newman showed that of the 4,i9 District em ployes affected by the provisions of the Tinkham bill, 2,913 were males and 1,94 females.
