The President has approved a recommenda tion made by the civil service commission re voking the part of the civil service rules as provides for tho appointment upon non-com petitive examination of 17 clerks in the office of the treasurer of the United States employed as expert money counters. The recommenda tion of the commission was based on grounds stated as follows in a letter to the President on the subject: "The attempts thus far made to make ap pointments to these places under this order have fully satisfied the commission and the Treasury department of the impracticability of this method of procedure; not because of any difficulty of applying suitable tests to determine the expertness required, but because there are really no experts to be tested. The duties of these positions cannot be learned elsewhere than in the positions themselves and, therefore, the only experts are those now occupying them, and the very few who have left them for one cause or another, but who are not seeking to return. Therefore since experts are not available, and persons will have to be appointed who mnst learn the duties of the positions in the actual performance of those duties, there would seem to be no good reason why such persons should not be selected from the eligible registers of this commission which are at all times abundantly supplied with the names of Ersons who are both competent and worthy. id besides so long as these tempting plaoes are In the non-competitive list, the department will be subjected to solicitation and pressure concerning them which it would rather avoid."

Mr. Britton will invite the various gentlemen appointed to serve on the committees to meet Saturday evening. 80 far all those appointed have accepted the appointments and duties assigned them, except General Bovnton, chairman of the press committee. Mr. Britton consulted all the others but Gen. Bovnton before announcing thefr appoint ments. Gen. Bovnton, however, is absent from tho city. "There was such a consensus of opinion demanding his appointment.'' said Mr. Britton to a Star reporter to-dav, "that I disregarded the rule I made for myself and ap pointed him without consulting him." chairman or the committee on public com fort. Mr. L. P. Wright, who was appointed to-day as chairman of tho committee on public com fort, served in that capacity at President Cleve land's inauguration. Ho was tho only republi can that servod as a ch.iirm&n at that time. He gave a month's labor to the work of his com mittee, and so systematized matters that all who desired quarters socurod them. "1 left the depot for my liomc at 3 o'clock on the morning of inauguration." be said to a Star reporter to-day. with a pardonable glow of pride. "1 was very tired, but I had the satis faction of knowing that no one had to walk the streets for lack of accommodations." THE FIRST PENNSYLVANIA JIEOIMENT LOOKING FOR QCABTEIIS. M.-. Wright called upon Mr. Britton to-day and accepted the appointment. He Was just in time, for at that moment three officers of tho first Pennsylvania regiment arrived to obtain information respecting quarters. These Wero Col. Wondell P. Bowman, Major J. LjMrts Goode and Quartermaster P. P. Koonos. They had a consultation with Mr. Britton and then went off with Mr. Wright to look at buildings that might be secured for tho accommodation of their regiment. "We consider it part of tho duty of the first regiment," said Col. Bowman to a Stah reporter, "to attend tho inaugu rations of the governor of the state _ and of tho President of the United States. We havo at tended every presidential inauguration since tho war, except one." . "How many men do you expect to bring? asked The Star man. "About 800," said the colonel. Maj. Goode. in conversation with The Stab reporter, said that it was not yet decided whether the whole national guard of Pennsyl vania would come as it did four years ago or not. but at all events the first brigade, com manded by Gen. Geo. R. Snowden, and com prising the Philadelphia city troops, and num bering ABOUT 2,300 MEN, WOULD COME. The 1st regiment is attached to the 1st brigade. Four years ago the transportation Of the troops here was paid for by subscription, and the troops subsisted themselves: Repre sentative Scott paid a large share of tho expense of transportation. It is not expected that he will be so liberal this year. The State Fenc.bles and tho 3d regiment, of Philadelphia, havo sent committees here already to secure quarters. YOUNO men's REPUBLICAN CLUB OF PHILA DELPHIA. Col. Bowman, while here, has also secured accommodations for the Young Men's Repub lican club of Philadelphia at the Riggs House. It is expected the club will bring 500 members. THE SEVENTH REGIMENT COMINO. Mr Wolf has been charged by Col. Emmons Clark, of the famous 7th regiment of New York, to secure quarters for his regiment, which will participate in tho inauguration. He has turned the matter over to Col. Moore. TOO MUCH BANDANA. An Kx-CMflolal Whose Presence at the League House Caused Talk. Political chat in and around tho republican national leaguo building has been spiced by a warmth of expression that ought, if tradition hol<ls good, to cause somebody's ears to burn. The present outburst of indignation has for its target an ex-official of one of the departments. This gentleman was appointed to office during the early days of the war and held on without a break until the incoming of tho present ad ministration. Then his place was wanted for one of Senator Gorman's friends. When tho news of Thurman's nomination as the demo cratic candidate for Vice-President arrived here the ex-official was sakl to havo shown his gratification by displaying red bandanas from his present place of business. His conduct attracted considerable attention. Democrats and republicans alike were astounded; tho former because they had never known the ex-official to be of their party, the latter because he was supposed to be a re publican. Time rolled along, and the ex official may have thought the incident had been forgotten. When the city was in an up roar on Wednesday night he quietly slipped 111 and made himself at home in the league Wild ing. Here he remained for a couple of hours ?diplomatically enthusiastic?ana finally de Earted for home. In tho newspapers next day e was mentioned as "one of a small crowd of prominent republicans" who reviewed the pa rade from league headquarters. That newspa per paragraph caused all the trouble. The gentleman's presence had not been noticed by leading members of tho league because of the crowd incidental to such an occasion, but a re porter had seen him in a prominent place, in republican company, and that settled it. Last night a number of" the league members were discussing the matter, and their language, for the most part, was vigorous 111 the extreme. "The leaguo builuing," said one of them, "was on that occasion open to all republicans, rich or poor, but to 110 others. No man who decorated the front of his office with bandanas after being in republican service for more than a quarter of a century (and who was turned out by the 'bandana' party) has a right to set his foot on the doorstep of a house dedicated by republicans to republicanism." A Conjuring Ballot-box. A CURIOSITY WHICH MB. QUAY EXHIBITS TO HIS FRIENDS AT THE LKAOUE. Mr. Quay has an ingenious ballot-box which is shown as a curiosity to some of his friends at republican league headquarters. It was purchased down south, and is of a sort said to be extensively in use in that locality. It is a tin box, shaped something like a Saratoga trunk. In the top is a little shute for the ballots to be put in, like the slot in a tin money-box. This slot or shute stands aboat half an inch above the top of the box, and tho opening is about two inches long and half an inch wide. Over this is slipped another shute, standing an inch and a half higher and fitting close to the shorter one on three of the four sides. This latter shute, however, has an opening of fully an inch across the top, and on the fourth side there is an opening. The box is supposed to be placed high enough up so that tho slot may be reachedTbut notlooked into. One who un derstands the contrivance can so hold his bal lot that it will go not only into the larger shute but through the smaller into the box to be counted. But a voter to whom the mysteries of the machine are unknown would be J?0?* certain to miss the inner opening, and while to all appearanoes be bad got his ballot in the box, it would, as a matter of fsct, slide out on the roof and down into the hand of the "disin terested" judge of elections. This is intended to illustrate now voting maybe dons in the "?itr!" Quay is speaking of taking the entire second floor of the leaguo builduig far his headquarters, but he has not yet been given full possession. Hs is at tbs league for a while every morning, but he has private quarters, where he spends most of his time. He is not ne jKS tbs whole matter into bis bauds. They askno questions, but trust entirely to bis cleverness to insure them the control of the Hons*. TUNNEL DISCLOSURES. Another Exciting Day In the Military j Court of Inquiry. SENSATIONAL TESTIMONY OF SUD-CONTBACTOX ! PAL*ER ?

The investigation, by a military court of in quiry, ae to the responsibility for faulty work in the aqueduct tunnel, was continuod to-day at the War department. TESTIMONY Or SCB-CONTBACTOB PALMER. The first witness was Sub-contractor John F. Palmer. He said he was fully acquainted with all the details of the specifications and he did his best to carry out the requirements. Twicc, however, ho had discovered faulty v>ork. ouce at Kock creek and agnin at Foundry branch. This he had torn out and reconstructed prop erly. Witness said he had placed implicit confidence in his foremen and never supposed that they were neglecting their duty, lie was i particularly anxious to have the work properly done. Mr. Quackenbush hnd WABJfED ItTM AGAINST "SHODDY" WORK, and on ono occasion told witness that h-? did not want any " New York work on this tunnel." | Witness said lie was continually in the tunnel, i Sincc the time when ho wm first connected with the tunnel be had only been alisent one i working day. He had not. he confessed, ex- I amincd the work very closely, because he 1 trusted his foremen. Witness denied most , strenuously the allegation mode byex-For?nan I Frank B. Thompson to the effect that ho (Pal mer) compelled the workmen to build three centers each dnv. There was no filed amount of work for eacli gang of men. Witness fre quently got on the scaffold where the brick layers and packers were at work, but he NEVER SAW ANT BAD WOBX. Witness was somewhat uncertain as to whether or not he had given orders to hxrry tbo work. He might, he said, havo expressed himself as to the quantity of construction which he thought ought to be done each day, but that was all. He garo very strict orders an to tha quality of the work; it "was to be solid and good. General Ruger then examined the witness at considerable length on the subject of em ploying government sub-inspectors as foremen and time-keepers. Palmer admitted that ho had recompensed inspectors for work done after regular hours. The only inspectors so Said were Lucas and O'Brien and th? only duty ley performed was that of timo-koeping; they were not foremen. Witness said that his understanding of the specifications was such that he folt at liberty to engage men who were not practical masons to cTO the packing work. Ho had discussed the matter with Chief Inspector Kerlin, and they had agreed that skilled masons were neither necessary nor wii'e they demanded by the specifications. Witness employed men who had done what wm considered to be fair masonry work, but they were not experts. DID HOT RECOGNIZE TOTC SPECIFICATIONS. Gen. Ruger handed the witness a copy of the specifications, and after reading them, Palmer said: "These may be the Fame as those I saw before our work bogan, but they read differ ently now." Witness said he had conversed with .Mr. Quackenbush on the questiou of un skilled men ns packor*. and Mr. Quackenbush was of opinion that skilled labor wal not neces sary. AS TO THE MOTIVE OF THE KENDALL BROTHERS. In answer to a question by CoL Craighill as to what motive the Kendall Brothers had for making the affidavits on which the investiga tion was based, Witness said he could not understand why they should have acted as they did. Ho had always treated the Kendalls well. They had, he was satisfied, done as much as any of the others to conceal from wit ness the bad work. Thoy knew of witness' coming and going and said nothing. Witness inclined to the belief that if there had baen an orgarued conspiracy to ruin him it could not ii-.e been more successfully carried on. Gen. Ruger quieted the witness at this point and vailed his attention to the fact that two of the Kendall Brothers were in the room at the time. INSPECTOB LUCAS ON THE PACKING QUESTION. Cross-examined by Capt. Chester, witness said that Inspector Lucas had told him that tho packing above the arch was a waste of material; it was unnecessary. Lucas had told witness at one time that if he (Lucas; wa? the only in spector in the tunnel he would make some money for him. At the request of Lucas wit ness employod Lucas' grandson as a messenger in the tunnel, at 50 cents a day. Lucas com plained at the smallnoss of the boy's remuner ation. and said that it was a very little in view of the valuable services which he (Lucas) was rendering. INSPECTOR LUCAS OJC THE CKMENT QUESTION. Witness had a conversation with Lucas as to the quantity of cement necessary. About sev enty barrels a day were used, and Lucas sug gested to witness that he get the cement and sand contract from Beckwith & Quackenbush. If he would put him (Lucas) in charge of tho cement supply ho would do the work with twenty barrels a day; "that," said Lucas, "would be ?50 a day in your pocket." Witness said that was out of the question. A day or two after the conversation on cement witness dis charged Lucas' grandson, and at noon of that day witness ana Lucas mot on the surface. Lucas said to him. "You have dismissed the boy?" Witness said, "Yes; he was impudent and disagreeable." Lucas then said, "John, I'm m OOIOT TO SQUEEZE TOP." Shortly after that Lucas recommended a man named Wrenn as a good packer. "Lucas told me," said the witness, "that Wrenn was a first-rate packer and one of the smartest cheats ever in a tunnel, but he will cost you $8 or #3.50 a day." Witness replied, "If he is a good packer I want him. but I will pay him no more than I do any other packer. As a cheat ho has no value for me. Witness said that Lucas endeavored at one time to run the arcb past a close place with only a single ring of brick. Witness refused to be a party to the fraud, but Lucas ordered tho single ring to be put in. Col. Kerlin, however, discovered it and ho BEPBIMAKDED LUCAS SEVEBELT. Lucas told witness afterward that if they could only get Inspector Woodward out of the way?send him over to Rock creek?he (Lucaa) would "skin" that one rinp through anyhow and thus beat the colonel. Witness reported Lucas' conduct to Col. Kerlin and said then that matters had arrived at a point where he would conceal them no longer. He wanted Lucas retnove-d from the tunnel. He never gave any presents to government inspectors. He was of tne opin ion that Lucas wanted to make some money out of him. Lieut. Townsend asked witness if he knew of Lucas being bribed, but the court objected to the question, it was too broad. LUCAS PAID tun CENTS AX HOUR. Capt Chester modified it and the witness re plied by stating that Lncas was paid SO cents an hour for work done in the tunnel other than that paid for by the government At 13:05 the court took * recess until 1 JO, and there being no other witnesses present the reading of the record was continued. The court adjourned until Monday at 10 JO a. m. Interior Department CI The following official changes have been made in the Department of the Interior: General land office?Appointment: Claud N.

The secret had been well kept, and when Mr. Gladstone rose and in a business-like manner made the announcement, there was a wild burst of cheering from the 01 position, while on tho opposite benches the member* looked on in gloomy silence. Mr. Gladstone has always maintained that his de feat in 18X6 was due chiotly to the unpopulari ty of the lend purchase scheme, and tlic success of the unionists in making votes to th" Ik lief that he hud not definitely withdrawn the pro posal to grant public money to landlords. Mr. W. H. Smith's dictatorial manner m annor.ne ing the haste with which be proposed to push the measure forwt.rd will, it is thought likely, lead to lively scenes when the discussion !?? gins. The withdrawal of the bill for creating a minister of agriculture leaves the duties per taining to that office still in the hand* of the chancellor of the duchy of Lancaster.

Kick seriously injured by a Baltimore and Ohio train at Curtis bay crossing last night. The two men were re turning homo from the county in a Dayton wagon, and while crossing the Curtis bay branch of the Baltimore aud Ohio railroad through a small lane known as the Marine hospital road, were run into bv the train. Neither of the occupants heard the approach ing train until it was upon them, and before they had time to jump or do anything to save themselves the crash came. The Dayton was crushed to nieces, and Moon and Eick were hurled into tne air. Eick fell upon the cow catcher of tho train. Though dazed by the shock, he had sufficient presence of mind to hold firmly to the catcher until the train came to a stop. His grasp then relaxed, and he fell in the mud beside tne road-bed. Moon is sup posed to have been killed instantly. He. too. fell on the front of the engine, but rolled off. Moon was a single man. Baltimore Insurance Rates. INSURANCE MEN CONFERRING WITH A VIEW TO INCREASING THEM. Baltimore.

A plan was discussed which will be submitted to the Underwriters' association, which, if approved, will go into effect in about three weeks. Seventy-five per cent of the associa tion must approve of the change before it can be put into operation. It is understood that the height rate above 60 feet will be increased, and also the area rate of establishments in proximity to places in which dangerous com modities "are stored. The change, it is stated, will only affect mercantde houses. Mrs. Gould Greatly Improved. New Yore.

A DECISION AT LAST REACHED IN A LONO-OOJi TE8TED CHICAGO SUIT. Chicago, Nov. 16.?The long-contests suit over the ownership of 300,f*>0 pounds of wool in the storerooms of T. W. Hall A Co., the com mission men. whose failure occurred about three months ago. is at last ended. At the time the assignee of the firm took possession of their warehouse he found that Hall A Co. had leased the warehouse to the National Storage com Eanv, which had issued to the lessors ware ouse receipts for about 400.000 pounds of wool, or about 100.000 pounds more than Hall A Co. had on hand. Hall A Co. had pledged these receipts with various city banks. As Hall A Co. did not own any of the wool in their lofts the contest was mainly between the con signors of the wool on the one side, the hold- I ers of the receipts of the storage company, and the storage compauv itself, on the other side. Judge Prendegast's decision was to the effect that the storage company is liable to the receipt holders for the wool covered bv its warehouse receipts. The court found tnat the storage compant never had legal possession, and wus not entitled to hold the wool in storage. Con signors, who were able to identifv their ship ments. were allowed to reclaim them, and af ter the allowance of two hens for consignors the remainder of ti:e property will be turned over to the holders ol the receipts of the stor age company.

QlEKNSLAMVs"" ISOLD STAND. Objecting Strongly to the Appointment of Mr. Blake as < .over nor. London, Nov. 1G.?Sir Arthur Hunter Pal mer. acting governor of Queensland, has tele graphed to Lord Knutsford, the colonial secre tary. notifying him of the opposition in tho colony to the appointment of Mr. Henry Arthur Blake as governor. He says that Mr. Blake is not known to have odministcr-d a responsible government with discretion aud success. and that Queensland is entitled to have a governor of proved ubilitv and discretion. Mr. Blake's experience in colonial governorship isooufiued to a year's governorship of New Fuundland, while his previous experience would only dis qualify him for the duties be would be .'-ailed on to perform. The objection to Mr. Blake in Queensland. Mr. Palmer says, was spontane ous. immediate and general, and was tw more strongly accentuated because the nomination followed a crisis in which rigid adherence to the exercise of privilege had to give way to responsible government. A governor cannot be appointed from sn imperial standpoint nlone, continue* Mr. Palmer. Tbe colony pays the salary and cxpects to be given a governor of whom the people approve and who will work heartily and loyally for the colony's in terests. UALKS IN OltKAT BRITAIN.
