Slany of Them Passed Good Kxnmi nations for Postoffice Places. The number of young colored men who have passed successfully civil service ex aminations for appointment to positions in the city postoffice has attracted agooddeal of attention from the authorities recently. Most of these men are graduates of How ard University and of the other institutions here devoted exclusively to the education of colored men, and they are showing a very strong desire to step right from the -HChools into the government, service. So far, however, the appointments have not been numerous enough to give them much encouragement. While there Is no discrimination aganstr the negroes b3- the postoffice authorities', nays the correspondent of the Baltimore Sun, few vacancies occur, und the vast majority of those who have passed examina tions are still waiting upon the eligible list for appointment. Inasmuch as the ex amination is not sodiffieult.mostor the col ored men seeking to enter the postofficc through the civil service commission ap ply for positions upon the letter-carriers force, and but a small percentage seek po sitions as clerks. While they have been very successful in passing examinations, it is stated at the city postof fice that among the colored eligi bles there are few who show any decided proficiency as compared with the whites. As a result, more whites are being appoint ed proportionately than colored men. At the present time there are employe J in the city postoffice fifty colored men out of an entire force of 503 persons. Of this number fifteen are letter-carriers and the others are messengers and clerks, with the clerks In a decided minority. Postmaster Wiilettsays of iiis colored em ployes that they do excellent work and that in selecting men for appointment he treats the colored applicants with as much consideration as the wliites. He does not, ho wever.think there isanydangertbatthey will crowd out the whites, because up to the present time the competitive examina tions show results in favor of the white men. Tiiere is no question, however, that the number of colored men desirous of en tering the government service and capable of passing examinations is increasing very rapidly. WASHINGTON AND GETTYSBURG. Incorporators A sic the Commission ers to Approve the Road. The Commissioners gave a ycaring yes terday to a number of the Incorporators of the proposed Washington and Gettys burg Electric Railway Company, which is understood to be an extension, under a separate charter, of the Washington and Maryland plan. Those present at the interview were Dr. F. C. Drane, Guion Miller, Asa M. Stab ler, J. Enos Ray, John Miller, J. J. Camp, Dr. Robert Thomas, O. A. Homer, E. C. Jleynolds, who is a civil engineer, and al bert TGlcason. m Hctired Pay Law. The United States court of claims yes terday decided that the act of March 3, 3SS5, regulating the pay of retired navy officers, was not retroaclivc. The case in which this point was decided was that or D. M. Fuller against the United States, for back pay as a retired passed assist ant engineer of the United Suites Navy. The decision will serve as a precedent In many similar cases arising under the same law. Old Jewelry Firm in Trouble. New Tork, Jan. 11.
