For the first time in many months a full iembership of the Men's Club of Northeast Vashington was present last evening at ie club's hall, 408 H street northeast. The iembers and their guests listened to an ad rews on "The Principles of the Civil Ser ice of the United States" by Mr. James 1. Garfield of the United States civil service Dmmission. There was a large number f government employes, residents of the ortheastern section of the city, also pres at. Mr. GaTed concluded his remarks i about one hour, 'and announced that if ny one wished to propound questions re .rding the operations of the civil service Lw he would be pleased to answer them. The invitation was accepted, and ques ,ons wereLfIred, at the offcial -as .fast as he Duld respond. In answer to some ques ions Mr. Garfield admitted that the civil ervice commission was not altogether sat ifled with the existing conditions, but was oing all it could to extend the scope of Its ower. Mr. Garfield began his address by taking is auditors back to the time of George Vashington, who, the speaker said, was pposed to nepotism and always refused to ppoint a relative to an office. The speaker aid the idea of civil service was really onceived at that day, for the reason that Len who were appointed to offices in the ilitary and civil departments of the gov rnment were chosen upon merit and were ppointed to the department to which they rere best fitted. During the early days f our history, Mr. Garfield declared, the rntted States sent to Europe untrained ien, but honest, educated ones, who were iore than able to cope with the polished iplomats of the continental countries. The peaker averred that this was because ere was honesty in the administration of ,e government, which resulted in the best ien being appointed to the offices. Thera Came a Change. "At the end of the first twenty-five years. owever," Mr. Garfield continued, "when an Buren came in, everything was chang 3. The spoils system was introduced. Men ere given office who had been the political iouters. doing the dirty political work. nd politics were dirtier then than they re now. Even Jackson and Van Buren tw that in the army and navy men to >mmand ships or armies must be capable. nd capable men were appointed in these wo branches, while the vicious politicians 'ized upon the civil branch of the gov *nment. In this way the army and navy came separated from the civil arm. very four years things were turned up de down. Good men were removed and id ones given their places. "After Jackson's time the government be Ln to suffer losses through dishonest office ylders, and in six years every public offi al in New York had either been arrested r stealing public money or fled the coun y. With the civil war came a need for nomy, and reform was talked of. In 69 the standard for better things was Ised, but there was a hard battle to be ught. Various administrations had-taken the idea that the spoils belonged to the .ctor, and it was hard to convince people tat this was not a good doctrine. "During Grant's administration a law was Lssed and an effort was made to intro ice the merit system. But Congress want I the patronage. In 1883 a better and ore stable law for the improvement of the vil service was passed. The people ob cted to it because it looked English. htey said every American citizen was capa e of holding arry office under the govern ent-if he could get it. In England the 'rors of the system were appreciated by e nobles themselves, who had had the Ltronage, and they amended their lajw so at any Englishman could hold office un r the British government." Gained Supporters Yearly. Mr. Garfield declared that year by year e idea of reform gained more supporters the country, until now the civil service stem is an established fact, and the ques -n confronting the country is not how far extend it, but how good to make it. The -esent conditions, Mr. Garfield said, were Lined after years of struggle and still the rstem is not perfect. The merit system, e speaker declared, has become a funda ental part of the government and the ople all over the country advocate it. f the 240,000 persons employed by the >vernment, 120,000 are under the civil rvice. Mr. Garfield said that the failure the law in many instances is due to the et that the old spoils system has not yet en thoroughly outgrown. The men left er from the spoils system, said Mr. Gar Mld, will be dropped and are being drop d day by day, and within ten or fifteen ears the governmental departments will .1 be under the civil service. The administration of the law, Mr. Gar ed declared, has improved marvelously uring the last ten years. Last year there ere 86,000 applicants for office. Of this umber 10.000 were appoin-ted under the vil service. Mr. Garfield said there are lore than 400 different kinds of examina ons and that papers are marked absolute 'f.ree of favoritism. Incentive to Good Service. The speaker said there used to be an idea at once in government employ under the tvii service a man would hold his position >r life, and that he could not be removed. he government, he declared, is weeding ut poor workemen, and today there is an ientive for every man to do his best >r Uncle Sam. He noted instances where essengers and laborers had become heads Sdepartments under the merit system. Commissioner Ware. Mr. Garfield said, is rdeavoring to bring this condition about Sthe pension office. The commissioner is t only promoting deserving clerks but he I reducing incompetent ones. Mr. Garfield iso noted an instance where an ex-confed rate soldier was promoted over the heads fsome ex-Union men, because he was a atter clerk. He said the United States has rown away 'fromn being a small govern tent ail4 is now spending hundreds of mil ons of dollars where it formerly spent undreds of thousands. It is on this ac yunt, he continued, that the government ants men of integrity, honesty and effi tency for its service. At 'the close of Mr. Garfield's address ose in the audience were supplied with gars. and these were burned while Mr. arfield served as a target for red-hot ietions which he answered most good aturedly and quickly. Distasteful Food. 'm the Boston Budget. home remarkable 'xperiments to show the Imparative digestibility of different foods ave recently been conducted by Prof. Paw IW upon dogs. These experiments are de ~ribed by Cr. Romme in La Revue for Au ust. The gullet of the animal was cut in ee ons and fixed to the deck, so that when it te the food merely fell to the ground, and ie stomach was divided into two parts, no where no food was allowed to pen trate, the other into which was put the >od neessary to keep the dog alive. The results of the experiments proved at the mere- offering to the dog of food rhich he liked caused an abundant secre ton of astric juice, although of course othing adentered the stomach. If he rere given a dainty-not merely food which e liked-the flow of gastric juice was mntch core abundant-that is, food taken without, ppetite will fall into a stomach without' ny gastric juice ready for it. The work of igestion was formerly supposed to go on I right if only you can get the food to the tomach. The Pawlow experiments -show tat it is either not digested at all or very edly digested. Again, the brain transmits its orders to he stomnaeh by means of two pneumo-gas-. rio nerves. Prof. Pawiow out these nerves *n a specially "prepared" dog. Then he ;ave the dog aocme raw meat, which -again, >f core did not reach the stomach, but. to drop of gastric juice was secreted. No method of mechanical excitement produced ,g julee.
