Special Dispatch to the Post-Intelligencer. WASHINGTON. May 14-The innate committee on cl*1! »*»rvlce and retrench ment U very mu~h In earn**st in regard to the investigation which it ha* under taken as to the met hod* in vogue in the various departments during the laat ad-' ministration for carry ing out the civil ser vice Jaw Although by no means through with their investigation*, they have un earthed instances almost without end of violation* of the civil service act, show in* not only that the spoils system was in full vogue under the great civil ser vice reform president. Mr. Cleveland, but also that the government has been in some cases robbed and plundered by offi cials high in authority, which fact has been known to the heads of the depart ments and even to the president himself without any effort being made to punish the perpetrators of the same. The senate committee on civil service comprises Jeter C. Pritchard. of North Carolina: Henry Cabot Lodge, of Massa chusetts; Justin 8. Morrill, of Vermont; Stephen P. Elkins. of West Virginia; Ed ward C. Walthall, of Mississippi, and Hor ace Chilton, of Texas.' Recent disclosures in the war depart ment. connecting First Assistant Secre tary Doe. of the last administration. with the purloining of an immense quantity of stationery, of bonks bound In the moat expensive covers at the government's ex pense. of bicycles purchased from the de partment fund. etc.. seems likely to be followed by even more Interesting ac counts "f pilfering In other departments. The Morning Times, of this city, has been for somr days hinting at similar removals of government property from the White House and their transportation elsewhere at government expense. It is said that the paper has abundant proof, and is only waiting for a challenge from parties In terested. or for a call before the investi gating committee to tell all It knows. Prom what has already developed. It would appear that more abuses have taken place under guise of civil service protection than ever there did under the old spoils system, when to be either a Dem-icra; or a Republican was the high est offense known to the code of political moral*, ft is evident, too, that the pres ent administration, while it does not pro p-jRe to take a step backward in the mat- Uer of civil service reform, does propose to a considerable extent to modify the ex isting rules and the orders made by Pres ident Cleveland. Civil service reform, as practiced by the last administration, was a howling farce, and to those who have been here In Wash ington and witnessed the various phases of It. no investigation to prove that fact was needed, Civil service reform as prac ticed by the heads of the <=reeuttve de partment under President Cleveland con sisted in putting out Republicans and put ting in personal friends and political strik ers, noted rather for their fidelity to those who apponted them than for their faith fulness to party principles. This fact was thoroughly understood by the rank and tile of the Democratic party during the last campaign, and was the cause of the constantly repeated announcement by Mr. Bryan that If he became president there would be a change. Hoke Smith filled up the interior de partment with Georgians. Carlisle brought to the treasury department car loads of K<>ntu< kians. and many West Virginians found good berths in the postofflre de partment. all. of course, to the exclusion of Republican employes. The Incompe tency of many of these people Is clearly to be seen when it is understood that the work in all the departments has been get ting more and more behind ever since they came into office. So far President McKlnlfy's appoint ments indicate that it Is his determination to give the country a business administra tion. and such an administration will cer tainly please the people of the country and redound to his fame as a president, hut unless the civil service orders and rules are modified, the secretaries of the var ious departments and the heads of the bu reaus under thein will he greatly handi i»pped. A business man can not make a Krcat success without he h;is the earnest support and faithful work from every man under his direction. By Mr. Cleveland s orler. after all the principal offices in the departments. Including chiefs of divisions, had been filled by Democrats, and Cleve land Democrats at that, the protecting aegis of the civil service was extends! over them. In every case, a good effi cient and thoroughly competent Repub lican was remove! to make the vacancy. This is the kind of civil service that the present administration does not see fit to Indorse. The purpose of the preset in vestigation by the senate committee is to place before the people of the country such conclusive evidence of Kross parti sanship and of political and personal mis conduct as to Justify sucn changes as may be mad*- in Mr Cleveland s sweeping civil service extension order, and at the tame time satisfy everyone that there is no de sire or intention to act otherwise than In perfect harmonv with the policy laid dnwn in the platform at St. lx>ui« of rf.il civil service reform, in which only really competent men ajv appointed to positions of trust, and are retained for the fidelity with which they transact the public busi ness, instead of for the number of politi cal speeches they make while drawing irovernmcn* pa\ an! the amount of money whi h ther collect for campaign purposes from those under them. Secretary PHs* of the interior depart ment, when asked for his opinion upon the clvi! service hy the senate investigat ing committee, told them thai the chief clerks In the various bureau*, and the chiefs of divisions also, should be exetnpt from the civil sen-S»> *»d also that the commissioners of the land office.

WASHINGTON. May 14.-The meeting of the cabinet today was devoted Almost entirely to the consideration of the Cuban question. The meeting occurred an hour earlier than usual, oaring to the import ance of the question to be discussed. and the fact that the president and cabinet were to leave for Philadelphia at 12.13 o'clock. The cabinet discussion was upon the advisability of asking congress to pro vide immediate relief to the Americans who are. according to the reports receiv ed from Consul General Lee, penmd up in the cities of Cuba and in actual danger of starvation. It had no bearing the policy of the administration toward Spain or the Cuban insurgents, except Incidentally, but dealt with the direct and immediate question of relieving destitute Americana on the isl and. Secretary Shermaji laid before the cabinet some of the most important docu ments in the state department about the situation, and before the meeting was over Judge Day, the assistant secretary °f state, personally took to the White House some additional papers for which the secretary had sent. Every phase of the matter was dis cussed. the advisability of aakir.g congress for an appropriation, Spain's attitude, the methods for distributing relief, if it should be decided to enter upon it. and the neces sity or advisability of having a warship accompany the food supplies. But the final decision of the question was post poned until Consul Gen. Lee and other American consuls in Cuba, and probably Mr. Calhoun, make their reports by caole to the department. Th«y have been re quested to cable the latest facts as to the existing situation. These reports will b« here probably when the president and cab inet return tomorrow night, and if it is decided to send a special message to con gress early next week, these reports, with other facts in the possession of the estate department, will be made the basis of the request to congress. It seems extremely probable now that sucb a message will be sent to congress, but hardly before Wednesday, as ihere would be no time to prepare a message before that day un less Mr. McKlnley devoted Sunday to the task. The Spanish minister, Depuy de Lome, called at the state department shortly be fore noon today and conferred for some time with Assistant Secretary Day rela tive to the reported intention of this gov ernment to send relief to American Suf ferers in Cuba. The minister r*ve assur ance that the Spanish government world be in sympathy with any benevolent movement, and would, lend every assist ance to Jt. It was re«a)leit'%y the mhifcter that four months ago he had written the officers of the Red Cross Booiety. giving In behalf of his government full authority for extending aid to the sufferers in Cuba. Since then, however, no steps toward re lief have been taken. The Spanish minister does not question the existence of misery and suffering in the island, but declares that it is such only as accompanies Insurrection and war. heightened in this case by the dis eases peculiar to low tropical countries. It Is stated that these conditions have existed for months, an«l have been well known. As to the severity of the suffer ing. it is said that It consists mainly in the lack of adequate food, medicine and nursing for the sick and destitute. The statements that people are dying in the streets are not admitted at the legation, but are discredited, and It is said that there are a number of well-to-do Ameri cans in Cuba who would relieve any dis tress on the part of their fellow country men. Th» manner of sending relief to Cuba. If it shall be decided upon by the presi dent and congress, has been discussed among officials, and in some quarters it Is felt that the dispatch of a vessel would be Inadvisable. It is believed that the surest way would he to send relief by the ordinary freight routes, which have facilities for reaching the various ports and interior points In Cuba. The centers of «ufferlng are so widely separated that a relief vessel to any one port would en counter many delays and difficulties In pivlng speedv relief to the people needing K.

May 14.—« p. m.—Desperate fight ing has been in progress all day near Gri boro, on the road to Philippucia. Two brigades of Greeks, with many guns, two companies of sappers and a squadron of cavalry attacked the Turks, who were Al most without artillery. The Greeks forced the first Turkish line of defence, but met wlth a stubborn resistance at the second. In several places the bayonets were so close to the cannon that the latier could not be used. 3 p. m.—The fighting at Griboro has ceased, and the Greeks have occupied va rious heights in thei neighborhood. Twen ty-five officers and 400 men are hors ua combat. The battle will be resumed to morrow. Since I p. m. the gunboat fiotiila has been attacking Nicopolis from inside tha Gulf of Ambracia. with a simultaneous at tack proceeding from the land side. The Turkish batteries replied vigorously, and firmly resisted the» attack. The coming on of darkness stopped the engagement. All ihe Greek efforts are now concentrat ed upon capturing Nlcopolis and Prtuz be fore advancing to Peutepigadia. WOILD FORCE AN AKHISTICE. Greece Hopes to Urine the SUIINB to Term*. I-iONPON. May 14.-The correspondent of the Times at Athens says: The re sumption of offensive operations in Kpirus greatly complicates the situation ani tends to hamper the negotiations for peace. The evident intention of the Gn-ek commanders is* to capture the Turkish po sitions there in order to show that they have not been defeated. In an interview today M. Ralli, the pre mier. repeated his statement that humani tarian "motives are responsible for the ad vance in Epirus. but he did not deny the advantages which might be hoped for from the capture of Prwesa, and the oc cupation of the adjoining Turkish terri tory. "We are still at war." he said, "and until an armistice is granted Greece re tains her liberty of action. We cannot allow our activity to be confined to Thes saly. where the Turkish are preponderant. The powers have hindered us from acting In Crete, but Greece cannot be barred everywhere, nor compelled to restrict her operations to a limited area. "We have done our best to ol tain an armistice, and until it is accorded w» must act where and when we can. If we have not already prosecuted the war at various points and among the'lslands of the Aegean, it is only because we have taken Into consideration the suffering to which the Greek population might be sub jected." The government apparently thinks that, a renewal of the war will hasten instead of retard the armistice. This calculation may prove to be correct; but It is more likely that Turkey will seise upon it as an excuse for delaying the armistice, and will deal a crushing blow in Thessaly.

May 14 Recent mall advice* from Uruguay received herf state that the revolution has been checked, after a bloody battle at Tres Arhates, in which a large number of revolutionists were killed and their leaders driven to the fron tier. At the same time the government has seen fit to allay public discontent by tak ing into the ministry several men who heretofore have been regarded as leaders in the seditious movement. The minister of war. Gen. Dial, gave way for this pur pose to Gen Perez, who was acting presi dent of the committee officially denounced as seditious and revolutionary. This is accepted as the first step toward making terms with the revolutionists, al though a strict censorship of the press prevents any construction being placed on the course of the government. The fight ing has been bloody, the d*a.ths reaching Into hundreds. The president has issued a proclamation congratulating (Vn Mn no* on his last success in dispersing the revolutionises and a sword is to bo presentf«l to him.
