Brigadier General Is to Lead
Attack on Mexico City If
There Is One.
Became National Figure Upon Hit]
Capture of Aguinaldo, the
In?urgent Leader.
Brig. Gen. Funston, now on his way
to Mexico, who is to lead the attack on
Mexico City, if there is one, has had
a life full of stirring: incidents. He is
perhaps best remembered for having
swam a river, pistol in hand, with a
few of his men. turning the tide of
conflict in the taking of the first Fili
pino capital, and for his capture of
He was born In Carlisle, Ohio. No
vember 8, 1865. When two ye%rs old
his parents moved to Kansas, and he
grew up on a farm. He graduated
from the Iola High School and became
teacher of a district school. Then he
gave this up and became a student at
the Kansas University two years,
leaving before his senior year, while
at the university he learned the Span
ish language from a senorita, with
whom, for a time, he was said to be
in love.
Became Guide in Rockies.
In the summer of 1889, while still a
student at the university, he went to
Colorado, and after exploring some
places in the Rocky mountains that
were difficult of access, he became a
guide to earn money to help pay his
Two years after this his father, while
a member of Congress, obtained his
appointment as a botanist to accom
pany a surveying party sent out by
the United States government to ex
plore Death Valley. He spent seven
months in that desolate region, where
the bones of emigrants of other days
were still bleaching in the fierce white
heat of the sun. It was accounted a
dangerous thing to do. He not only
did all the government expected of
him. but he won praise by the scope
and thoroughness of his report.
The second daring adventure of Fun
ston was that which followed his ap
pointment to visit Alaska. He penetrated
the frozen regions wherever his presence
was needed in the discharge of his com
mission. On one occasion he took some
Indian guides and traveled 200 miles over
the snow and ice to the rescue of a ship
that was Icebound. He went as far up
? the Yukon river as any man has gone
since, and he visited the places where
gold has since been found.
Was Newspaper Reporter.
After his return from Alaska Funston
became in turn promoter of a coffee plan
tation scheme in Central America, lectur
er on Alaska and clerk in a railroad of
fice in New York. He was also a news
paper reporter in Kansas City for a time.
Next he became an insurgent in Cuba,
leaving New York in the spring of 1890
for that exciting work. The first filibus
tering expedition was then being outfit
ted. The tug Dauntless was the craft
that was to carry arms and men in the
first expedition from the United States to
aid the force of Gen. Garcia.
War between the United States and
Spain came on and Funston was offered
the post of colonel of the 30th Kansas
Volunteers. H. accepted.
The 30th Karaas was formed of com
panies from different towns in the south
eastern part of the state, and while
It was being gotten together Col. Fun
ston was ordered by Gen. Miles to re
port to him at Tampa. He went to
Tampa, where he gave Gen. Miles the
benefit of his experience and information
relating to Cuba, the insurgents and the
Spanish forces.. After remaining in Tam
pa for about a month he was ordered
back to his regiment.
Given Ovation by State.
In the campaign that culminated in the
capture of Malalos, the first Filipino capi
tal, Funston was a leading figure. He
swam a river, pistol in hand, with a few
of his men and turned the tide of the
battle. That feat made him a national
figure. When he returned home with his
Kansans and was mustered out his state
gave him an ovation.
When the new volunteer army was
formed Funston was appointed a briga
dier general and went back to the islands,
where he distinguished himself by cap
turing Aguinaldo.
A year after his appointment as briga
dier general he was assigned to the De
partment of Colorado, with headquarters
in Denver. February 23. 1008, he was
assigned to Vancouver barracks, Wash
ington. He was ordered to Alaska
March 1? of the same year to report on
the trading company combination. The
foUowing year he was assigned to the
Department of the I,akes, with headquar
ters in Chicago, and March 1, 1906, he
was transferred to the Department of
California, with headquarters in San
Francisco. He was assigned to command
the southwestern division, in October,
1006. In April. 19U7, he was assigned
to the Department of California, and was
transferred to eommand the army school
and collegt at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., in
August of the following year.
The Japanese Saloon.
From the Jipen Magwlne.
Japanese saloons have the American
habit of always providing refreshments
other than drinks for their customers.
They are not partial to sandwlchee;
usually it is a dish of herrings or octo
pus. and the price is 3 sen. It is seldom
that a man can get away from a saloon
without spending at least 20 sen, which
is a large part of a poor man's daily
Wiatge|8 remarkable the world over that
men will patronise any establishment
that can show a pretty face, even though
It be no more than a picture on a cigar
box. To place the picture of a pretty
girl on anything Is the very best adver
tisement. So the Japanese think, too;
and what is more, they prove it. At these
saloons. In the east end. there is always
a pretty girl assisting the matron of the
place- and she is permitted to wfeit on
customers. The Japanese barmaid has
all the influence that her counterpart has
in the west. Her face is sufficient to
make every passer-by imagino he is
thirsty; and when she proposes to serve
him he never refuses; and In the end he
foots the bill. The pretty maid can make
even the roughest customer feel for the
momcia ihat he Is a gentleman and she a
fair lady come to do him honor. Who
could refuse to accept so delicate a favor
from such dainty hands, and under the
light of such winning smiles? But once
the wine is finished and the money is
paid, the relationship is at an end. An
other customer by this time is waiting;
and the last having had his turn of con
versing with beauty, must be content
until thirsty again. Back he will likely
come next day. and drink another glass
to the health of a fair face, and then be
off again satisfied for another day. And
so it goes on from day to day. the pretty
face winning most, or much, at the shop's

The attention of the first assistant post
master general was called by Dr. Glee
son to section 4 of the act approved Au
gust 23, 11*12, which provides as fel
'"The civil service commission shall,
subject to the approval of the President,
establish a system of efficiency ratings
for the classified service in the several
executive departments in the District of
Columbia, based upon records kept in
each department and independent estab
lishment. with such frequency as to make
them as nearly as possible records of
fact. Such system shall provide a mini
mum rating of efficiency which must be
attained by an employe before he may be
promoted; it shall also provide a rating
below which no employe may fall without
being demoted; it shall further provide a
rating for a rating below which no em
ploye may fall without being dismissed
for inefficiency.
"All promotions, demotions or dismis
sals shall be governed by provisions of
the civil service rules. Copies of all rec
ords of efficiency shall be furnished b\
the departments and independent estab
lishments to the civil service commission
for record in accordance with the pro -
visions of this section:
Protection for Soldiers.
"Provided, that in the event of redac
tions being made In the force in any of
the executive departments no honorably
discharged soldier or sailor whose record
in said department is rated good shall
be discharged or dropped or reduced in
rank or salary."
The penalty for violation of the pro
visions of this section is summary re
moval from the service and also a fine
of not more than $1,000 or imprisonment
for not more than a year.
This section was construed by the ?o
licitor of the Department of Commerce
as meaning that the reduction of com
pensation of the class of employes which
it covered was prohibited. Because of
that opinion the Post Office Department
refrained from reducing the compensa
tion of such employes whose record of ef
ficiency was good, ?'notwithstanding its
belief, in several isgtances. that such re
duction would be in the interest of good
Last year, however, the solicitor of the
Treasury took a different view. Subse
quently Attorney General McReynolds
rendered an opinion embodied in the fol
"Assuming for the purposes of your
question, that the proviso as to honor
ably discharged soldiers and sailors is
not dependent for its operation upon
the establishment of the system of effi
ciency ratings provided for in the pre
ceding part of the section. I am never
theless of the opinion that it has n??
application to the situation referred to
in your letter. The proviso only under
takes to protect honorably discharged
soldiers or sailors whose departmental
record is good from being discharged
or dropped, or reduced in rank or sal -
ary, 'in the event of reductions t>eing
made in the force in any of the execu
tive departments.'
"It says in substance, that any such
reduction In the force of a depart
ment shall not be at the expense of anv
honorably discharged soldier or sailor,
if his record in said department be
good. But It does not prohibit the head
of a department from conforming the
salary of an honorobly discharged sol
dier or sailor to the grade or char
acter of work he may be called upoti
to perform."
The Postmaster General was to have
a conference with the department com
mander of the G. A. R. yesterday aft
ernoon. A sudden call of the Postmas
ter General to the Navy Department ne
cessitated postponement until Monday.
Officials of the Grand Army of the
Republic are said to be thoroughly
aroused over the matter. Tt is under
