OldPatrons Washinutos,April 19.--The inveatiga-^tlou into (lie workings of the several re^^ciprocal trade arrangements entered into^by ibu United States with ( eutral and^South American countries and with Spain^tor Cuba and Porto Rico, tinder the pro-^v^slons of the Mckinley act, which Secre^^tary Gresham instituted immediately upon^assuming the duties of his office, it was^reported,led to the determination by Pres^^ident Cleveland to terminate the arrange^^ments with Bratit and with Spain lor^Cuba and Porlo Kico. Inquiryat the state department devel^^ops the fact that the arrangements are not^ye^ terminated. It cannot be ascertained^who reported such action as a part of the^policy of the administration to abandon^I reciprocity. On the contrary. the^result of the inquiries tends to^prove that if any such ac^^tion has been or will be taken with^regard to Braid and Spain, it will be due^to special and local causes. Complaints^are said to have been received from per^^sons doing business with Cuba and Porto^Kico that the local officials of those Islands^do not observe the requirements of tlm^reciprocal prohibitive duty upon articles^entitled to admission free of duty under^the terms of the convention. Some com^^plaint is also made of Brazil in this direc^^tion, but not to nearly so great an extent^as with regard to the islands. The treaty^r ith Braiil is susceptible to a termination^on three months' notice by either party;^that with Spam is to remain in force so^long as it shall not be modified by mutual^agreement of the executive power of the^two countries. THEGROWTH OF REFORM.^Civil Service IU ports Shew flood Re-^tarns. Washington,April 19. The ninth an^^nual n ,Kirt of the civil service commis^^sion was issued to-day. Tho couniiis-^sioiieis urge that the classified service^uhould be extended as rapidly us practi^^cable to cover every position in the public^service 10 which it can appropriately be^applied. They earnestly desire that some^such bill as that introduced in the last^congress, to take the fourth class post^^masters out of politics, may become a^law. The report continues: ^Ultimately^the system of promotions in departments^timet come under the imroediute super^^vision of tho commission in order to se^^cure uniformity, und the best results.^Very serious harm, in our judgment, re^^sults from allowing the chiefs of divisions^to be excepted from examination, and we^think that they should be put under the igeneral rule and be appointed by pronio- 'tiott from within the service. Thereport shows a very surprising^growth in the number of employes com^^pared with the growth of the population.^Tho percentage of the growth of the public^sorvioe in 10 years is nearly double that of^the population. The service classified^for examination under the civil service^rules has grown even faster In the same^time, increasing at the rate of IM per^rent, so that whereas only about It per^cent, of the public service was removed^from party polities in 18A3, about 21 per^cent, is removed in 1893. The whole^number of places subject to competitive^examination under t lie rules is now 42.9J8.

Bank officer*,^brokers and financiers generally down^town are in a quandary over I he reports^that Secretary Carlisle might issue an^order directing that no more treasury^notes Imi redeemed in gold. These treas^^ury notes were, issued in payment for^silver purchased by the government, and^there are about *li*),inju.tuo of litem In^circulation at present,mostly in New York^and the East. The reason for that is fnai^the payments for silver are made in this^city. Mostof the national bank presidents^seen today discredited the report. They^are therefore unwilling to attempt to fore^^tell the result of such an order if it is is^^sued. The consensus of opinion of thoss^bank presidents spoken to is that toe first^effect of such an order would be to send^gold to a small premium. Considerable^talk was indulged in after the close of the^stock exchange about alleged beavy ship,^meuts of gold by Saturday's European^steamers. So far as can be learned at this^time, only one house will ship. The con^^signment will be at least tL'.uOO.OJO unless^tbey ran secure bills. There appears to^bo a disposition on lbs part of certain ex^^porters to avoid sending gold as they do^uot care to bear tho criticism which they^think will follow their breaking in on the^fluu,0OO,OUO gold revenue. Unusually high^rates for exchange led to talk about a^heavy outflow of gold. Hut the tlnltl Was -umrwhere^How It Happened- CrncAGO,April 19. Lyman B. Limb. ^^millionaire from Akron.
