to-day by Dr. Nolan R. Best, well

American Expeditionary Forces.
"Britain and France," Dr. Best
oontinued, "have been practically
stripped of able-bodied men in or

strength. On the other hand, the
manpower of the United States has,
in comparison, only been touched.

in Celebrating War's End

to Marshal Joffre

in the name of President Wilson, pre

terday morning the distinguished
service medal to Marshal Joffre. the
hero of the Maine.
To the Editor of the Telegraph:
I. Charles C. Kerns, employed for
nearly eighteen years at the Harris
burg Post Office, have been removed
by Frank C. Sites. On Monday, May
15. 1 received an order signed by
Chas. H. Hoffman stating 1 would be
transferred from the Maclay Street
Station on May 20 to the muin Post
Office, the hours of duty to be from 3
p. in. to 11 p. m., permanently. 1
took the matter up with the clerk
at the Maclay Street Station and lie
took the matter up with C. H. Hoff
man at the main office when inform
ed through the clerk of the Maclay
Street Station that I should write to
the Postmaster and state reasons for
not being able to obey the order,
stating physical inability. The Post
master never gave me the courtesy to
reply to my letter. May 20, the day
the change was to take place I again
renewed ray statement with the clerk
of Maclay Street Station to advise
the main Post Office I cannot meet
the order. 1 likewise had my phy
sician send a certified statement on
account of partial paralysis and con
sequent disability that all possible
consideration be extended me.
The day the order went into effect
1 was informed by the clerk of the
Maclay Post Office that Chas. H.
Hoffman said if I didn't take the work
assigned to me I could not work at
I all. This was a gross violation of
the civil service laws. The post
master does not have the power to
give an immediate suspension, much
less does any subordinate, and fur
thermore, if an employe commits
the most serious or flagrant offense
the postmaster must send a telegram
immediately to the First Assistant
Postmaster General and receive the
department's approval before any
suspension is made, and follow with
a letter to the department with par
ticulars. This was not carried out
in my case. May 22 I received a
registered letter from the postmaster,
stating lie wished me to call at ills
office to have an interview concern
ing this work. I called and instead
of conversing relative to work he
berated and used offensive language
to me. The following day I receiv
ed a letter preferring three charges
against me: (1) Disobeyed official
orders; (2) Absent without, leave:
(3) Insolence to superior and refusal
for duty after personal conference
with postmaster. I answered his
charges with an affidavit stating the
charges are absolutely without foun
j dation. I iMso sent a copy to the
Postmaster General calling his atten
| tion to my case, stating that Frank
iO. Sites, postmaster at Harrisburg,
is going to ask for my removal and
1 would he pleased to have an in
spector investigate. Before I ans
wered the charges I spoke to In
spector H. E. Lucas and told him I
was going to ask Washington to
send an inspector. He said "ask
them to send some one outside of
Harrisburg office." I judged by that
request he didn't care to be assign
ed to my case but the department
turned the case over to him anyway.
June 14, I received a letter from
the First Assistant Postmaster Gen
eral, J. C. Koons, advising me that
the department had not received any
charges against me from the post
master of Harrisburg. Why -the post
master of Harrisburg didn't turn
over to Washington answers to his
charges and left seven days pass by
is a mystery to me. July 30. becom
ing impatient. I called up H. E. Lucas
and asked him if he had my case.
He said he had and would send for
me in a day or two. July 31 I re
ceived a letter requesting me to call
at ihis residence, 2150 Green street,
for an interview and investigation.
He made iw> investigation, but tried
to scare me and used slurring re
marks. 1 also took the matter up
with our Congressman and he in
turn took it up with the Post Office
Department at Washington, and they
assured him and myself that my case
would be thoroughly investigated he
fore a final decision was given. Au
gust 17 I received a copy of a letter
purporting to be from Washington,
from the postmaster of Harrisburg.
stating that the department at Wash
ington does not deem Mr. Kerns a
suitable person for retention in the
service and he is removed because
ho refused to obey orders. Tills un
just. decision by the Post Office De
partment and bias statements of the
inspector, and the postmaster spur
red me on to continue my fight for
Justice. I also sent a petition of
about three hundred of Harrisburg's
most prominent citizens, asking for
the evidence that was submitted to
Washington and the grounds for
Justification for removal. Tho Post
Office Department totally Ignored this
petition. Through these men I have
loßt a position 1 earned uu merits.
Being idle since May 20, with nq In
come from any source, 1 have lost at
least SI,OOO, and was compelled to
soli the two Liberty Bonds 1 owned In
order to keep my two motherless
children as well as my aged mother.
Picture In your mind the mental
anguish we have endured' since, the
20th of May, living in a supposed
civilized and Christian country with
no Income, Yet these same men are
crying at the top of their voices:
"Don't leave your position; stand by
your country; buy Liberty Bonds and
help In the fight for true democracy
so that all mankind tile world over
shall havo peace, freedom and Jus
tice, 1< urthermore as far as the civil
service laws are concerned in the
Harrisburg Post Office, years of serv
ice and efficiency don't count for any-
