Corner of H Street t Xatfonal Anti-Civil Service Leagu Mr. Procter had asked some ques tions that drew from Mr. Severn hear say evidence, and this was objected to by Mr. Pritehard. With some warmth. President Procter retorted that Cnpt. Pratt, of the Indian schcoi, had been permitted to offer hearsay evidence in the shape or statements made to him by Indian agents all over the country, and when he (Procter) asked Capt. Pratt to give the names of thes agents, Capt. Pratt declined. Senator Pritehard resented the inti mation of discrimination agninst wit nesses and replied to the citect that he and not the president of the commis sion was running the investigation. "You will see." said Mr. Pritehard, with a marked show of impatience, "by an examination of. the record that I stated to Captain Pratt that hearsay testimony was not competent, and that 1 so ruled. I am conducting- this inves tigation not with a view to aid anyone but to pet at the facts and the truth, and to do it I shall follow the rules laid down for the admission of evidence. 1 propose that this investigation shall be conducted as if by a court of justice; the rules governing the admission of testimony by a court were applied to Captain Pratt; they shall be applied to you and to everyone else." "1 beg: also to suggest,"" continued Mr. Pritehard, "that you are here by the courtesy of the committee, and I hope you will not abuse it. I am try ing to do my duty and propose to do it as best I know how. r simply told you in a respectful way that the evi dence you sought to bring out was not competent." The examination then proceeded with out incident. Mr. Severn is an expert in his line. All that Mr. Procter drew from him was favorable to the merit j-ystem, nd Mr. Baker was unable to develop anything that was unfavora ble. Mr. AV. H. Houston, an examiner, was alpo examined. Commissioner Harlow was aiso heard, end submitted to the committee a. vol uminous typewritten statement con sisting of questions and answers. He said, among other things, that it was not always possible to distribute the ap pointments with mathematical exact ness among the States upon the basis of population, because when technical qualifications were required it some times happened that the State whose turn might be reached in certification might nave no eligible on the list. Trrere was, lie said, an inequitable method of distribution of appointments under the old system and that was one of the objections to it; these ob- I Jections did not apply to the merit system, now that the extensions of the classified service in Washington was practically complete. Mr. Harlow believed it would be advisable to take than demanded of many mechanics and liable consideration 1 KKlllOfl inhnrprs ivhi.rrt 4Vin! ..a i,.il A .sillf tviio l..-..r.l.t I.. i. , i " w....., ....i.-t. w.v. ..? v ....v. - ., no uiuuKiiL jii uil i nwpr pnnrr ..,.. hand, as well as the mind, was actively by Mrs. Heed, and n, vejdlet was ren- ,?.,i i ' employed. dereu for tlj. noOnd i, .-, l" tried rim oi,,.f w., r ii. .... i...,i l,.. iiifi nir.... ,..., .. ,..,.."- &'"" other m the Rnwrnnwii! av;i Aft- ITn-l.v.- oI i t Ion T7 lli.i lnJ.,... v n.. . ..

FAVOH HEIMHirilSING DAVIS. y Tin Coniiiiioptioners Approve the. Devolution Before the IIoue. The District Commissioners yester day made their report to Chairman Uab cock, of the House District Committee, on the Hutfe resolution C34, for the relief of Tax Collector Eldred G. Davis, in con nection with money ct-jlcn by Varriclc Hawkius and immediately replaced by .Mr. Davis at th time.

They sal residence as well as their legal "ay that whatever confidential information lesidence at the time of appointment and charging to each btate the legal residents of that State so that the dis- ' tribution of appointments hereafter may be basd upon the results of that ' inquiry- I Discussing the question of the hours of labor, Mr. Harlow said the emplovec j were expected to put in at Past seven ' hours. Out of this one-half hour dai'.v I was allowed for lunch. Mr. Harlow said ' it did not appear to him that this prac tice was authorized by ihs law. which provides that tlere shall be at least seven hours of labor, and the uoM. hour given for lunch ought not, from his point of view, to be considered as a part of the hours or labor. Mr. Harlow said that of the 10,009 employes in the eity only o,S83 were required" to work the full seven hours. These were chiefs and assistant chiefs of divisions-, messengers, wntchn: .-n. workmen ami laborers, persons employed in the me chanical trades, and not to exceed 1,000 of the Ij.OOO classiiied clerks. Leaving out those engaged upon professional, technical or scientilic work, whose hours weie frequently extended, and who frequently did night work. Mr. Harlow said there were fully 9.000 em ployes in this city who could with rrofit to U., Government and without injury to themselves woik the full time re quired by law, if there was sufficient work for them to do. If this increase of time were enforced it would result to the Government in a gain of -,300 extra hours each day. which would be equivalent to the services of C4.1 em ployes each year working sevon hours a day. As the average salary of clerks in Washington is $l,2"i0 a year, Mr. Harlow showed that this would be equivalent to a saving to tire Govern ment of over JS0O.O00 a vear for pw:.- hira. On the subject of sick leave the Com missioner said there was hardlv any question that there was considerable abuse of that privilege. The applica tion of civil service reform rules to the departments had had the effect of greatly reducing the absence on ac count of alleged sickness. Fully 75 per cent, of the abuse of this privilege has disappeared, Mr. Harlow savs. since the inauguration or the merit system but there is, he said, still room ror im provement The evil has been checked in two departments by the adoption at the suggestion of the commission, of a sstem of ratings in determining quali fications Tor promotions, of absence and other matters not heretofore consid ered. In the matter of salaries. Commis sioner Harlow said he helieved many millions would be saved if the depart ments were managed like any success ful business house or corporation witli similar hours for transacting business, with a reclassification of salaries ac cording to duties, with the discontinu ance of unnecessary work and the lop ping off of unnecessary positions. The u-oume wun me present salarv classi fication was that the bulk of the em ployes were paid out of all proportion to the importance of the work upon which they were engaged, while others doing the responsible and most diffi cult woik, requiring the greatest amount of ability, were not paid near ly so much as they would receive for similar work for a business house or corporation. The Government could not expect to secure the most compe tent persons for the most important work when it makes barely any dis-.j unci ion ueiv.een me salaries of those and the salaries of the employes en- Hawkhihl.ad he hadobtained clandestinely, and because of his seven years service in the office he had earned trn entire confi dence of those over him in authority. They lecomu'cnd that llic resolution be passed, and tliat Collector Davis be rehu buisedfor the nnn?ypaIdinto the treasury. pounds, or from 2 to 5 per cent., and una Mr. Haskell says is entirely too much to be fair to the people. In all cases so far the dealers have bn compelled to make the shortage good, and have been directed to use more care in the future. Mr. Haskell wishes It stated that this system of looking after the coal weight will be continued. Mr. Haskell has made a recommenda tion to the Commissioners that the law relating to his office be amended slight ly, to give the office more scope. He says in his letter to the Commissioners that he believes the revenues of the of fice could be increased largely and a more rigid Inspection of weights and measures accomplished if the change were made. Chicago maintained its lemitatlon ns a purveyor of news by sending over f private wiies intelligence that the I American minister at Madrid had fled X to the British embassy to escape mob violence. These -reports were circu- lated on a market-where manipulative support was withdrawn. The short ac- . 2 count largely reduced in yesterday's rapid advances, and where outside , Z business was upon a small scale. The ' London stock market gave no indica- ' lions of uneasiness. In the early dealings tha market was ! f fairly steady, but a sagging tendency j prevailed during the remainder of the ' 5 day. i m The statements of earnings for the second weak of the year reported by the St. Paul. Missouri Pacific and Kan sas & Texas companies were gratify ing showings, but they received no con siderable amount of attention. Further receipts of gold at San Francisco and the veiy easy money market were like wise ignored. The close was unsettled, with only fractional recoveries noted from the low level of the dav.
