Howard Jester nas caused all kinds of a stir among friends of aspirants to the office who were turned down, and the eclo of the trouble In the Democratic party é . . . . ... . . . . that it has caused will be heard In future campaigns. Mr. English was selected front a field of five who b 4 been actively mentioned for the place including Thomas N. Slayton. Peter J. Ford, Dr. Thomas O. Cooper and Martin P. Parry. That Mr, English was to be cho sen had been persistently reported, although it was said that up to Sat urday last Mr. Stayton had the Inside track. Mr. English's friends made such a strong appeal at the hear ing given by Senator Saulsbury in behalf of the various candidates that, It was said. It practically clinched the appointment for English. That be would be appointed was predicted in THE EVENING JOURNAL several days ago. Democrats were nonplussed as to why Senator Saulsbury delayed in making public his choice for the Wil mington postoffice. They figured out that he practically had made up his mind sometime ago. and could not understand why the agitation and stirring up of factional feeling was permitted to go on, as friends of the various candidates kept urging theli claims. There was « feeling that no matter who should be selected, the appointment was to be followed by trouble and would make more sore épris.

The Civil Ser vice rules, however, interfere with a move of this kind and in consequence there is considerable conjecturing. I nder an executive order, Issued bv President Taft, all ass.stant post masters tn the United States were placed under Civil Service, and It 's • pointed out that the only way to re move Mr Hickman would be to prefer chargee against him Theae would have to be corroborated before the . Civil Service Commission in Wash ington. but It la generally admitted that no ground for chargea could be found against him. The only other way to remove Mi. Hickman would b? for President Wilson to rescind President Tuft 8 order, but he could ,< T 0 ] do KJ" Mr. Hickman s case alone. < but would have to Issue an executive order affecting all assistant post Furthermore under the Civil Ser ! v,r? rules a Accessor "o Mr Wck man would have to be taken from the present force of carriers or clerks. !
