However, a small nuin- J her of women clerks and stenograph- i ers and typewriters are appointee! each j year. The opportunities for women * li giblcs from the examinations for the different kinds of teachers in the In- I dinn service are very good. Quite n number of appointments are also made In the Indian service from the trained nurse and matron examinations.” I The Navy Department had received from Commander McCrea of the Maeli las a mail report under date of (’ape I Haytlen, August 10th.. setting out in detail tin* steps taken by that officer to prevent interference with the world's commerce ns a result of the bitter in surrectionary struggle now in progress in Haytlen waters. It appears from the commander’s report lie took under his charge the commerce of nearly all of , the European countrh*s, in addition to that of his own. His attitude toward 1 Admiral Killick. the insurgent com mander, ns revealed in the report, is sig nificant ns Indicating the adoption of a j stronger policy than has been pursued heretofore In tlie treatment of South and Central American revolutions, which injuriously affect the commerce of the world. I In accordance with the suggestion of Secretary Shaw, national banks in the large cities are preparing to increase their circulation by the deposit of bonds. Since a few weeks ago. when Secretary Shaw asked the banks to. prepare to meet any emergency by In creasing tlielr circulation, the banks have notified the comptroller’s office that they want to stand ready for au increase of $12,250,000. A large por- I tlou of tiffs currency is now being printed at tlie Bureau of Engraving and Printing and will be ready for tlie banks ns soon ns tlie deposit is made. The increased circulation will not be taken out at all unless tlie banks are satisfied the money will lie needed in trade channels to relieve the situation in New York or elsewhere. The $12,- 250,000 does not include tlie circulation being taken out by new banks and by regular banks in different parts of tin* ' country, which have not been commun icated with. It is tlie opinion at tlie War Depart ment that Governor Taft's remarks at the Board of Trade banquet in M.-miht rewpeoting tlie employment of labor on plantations, will form the basis of a suggestion to Congress at the next ses sion that the act extending tin* Chi nese exclusion laws to tlie Philippines be amended. It is contemplated to re move the ironclml restrictions which now exists, and clothe the Philippine Commission with power to regulate tlie entrance of Chinese labor. The committee itself already has given some attention 1o this subject and it is believed that Professor .leaks’ inves tigations Into tlie labor problem in tlie Straits Settlements and elsewhere in tlie Orient meet with its approval. The proposed regulations, it is said, will look to a wisely regulated system of admission of Chinese ns plantation laborers, under sufficient bonds in each case, under proper systems of identifi cations, and a condition that they shall leave tlie Philippines after a certain sited fled period of time. Such regula tions as exist In Hawaii for the prop er care of the coolies would be incor porated. Governor Taft’s representa tions ou tills subject wore in answer to pressing demands from the Ameri can Gliamher of Commerce and em ployers of labor in the Philippines for ‘ relief from tlie present conditions, ‘ which, it is alleged, prevent the devel opment of the country. Acting Secretory Adoe has Inn'll In formed by the Japanese legation that Captain Itosoliill, who undertook to lay claim to Marcus island and take pos sesion. arrived on that island July 30tli last. He was met by a Japanese war ship. the commander of which handed to him the letters addressed by the State Department, pointing out the ad- | visability of Ids avoiding any forcible demonstration to support his claim. The captain accepted these letters as \ s tithe lent and left the island about a j week later. lie has not lost any right ; ho might have had, according to the State Department, and if he lias any just claim It may be pursued to a con clusion in the usual diplomatic chan nel. Concerning the preference given to United States soldiers and sailors hon- I orably discharged for disability in curred in line of duty the report of the j civil service commission says: With a view to securing to those honorably dis charged from the military or naval ser vice by reason of disability incurred in line of duty the benefits granted by sec tion 1754 of the Revised Statutes, the . civil service rules give preference to j such pers ns in examinations by re quiring them to obtain an average of j only sixty-live in order to pass, a cer tification by placing their names at the bead of the register before all oth ers not veterans, and in exempting them from all age limitations. The preference thus conferred extends to all I who have at any time been discharged from the military or naval service by reason of disability incurred in the lin_ of duty, and is not confined to those who have served during a war. A ta ble accompanying shows that forty-five appointments of preference claimants were made during the year, most of these being to positions in the depart ments at Washington. The average age of these preference claims was less than fifty years. In the appendix to the report the preference given to hon orably discharged veterans of the war of the Rebellion and the Spanlsli-Ainer- Ican war In the matter of reinstatement to the civil service is mentioned. Sueh I veterans, their widows, and army nurses of either of these wars may he reinstated without regard to the length of time they have been separated from the civil service. That this is a sub stantial benefit appears from the fact that during the fiscal year covered by the report 1.11 such persons were rein stated, or over fifteen per cent, of the entire number of reinstatements. An Interesting portion of the report of the Civil Service Commission is headed: ‘‘Opportunities for Appoint ment” in the report of the chief exam iner . An abstract of this is as follows: For men the best opportunities are of fered through the stenography and the typewriting examinations, which are given twice a year. For several years all men who have passed in both of these branches have been offered ap pointments except those who placed the minimum salary they were willing to accept at so large a figure as to pre clude their appointment. About fifty per cent, of the men passing the book keeper examination receive appoint ments. For some time past sill the ell gibles from the examination for aid in the coast and geodetic surveys, which examination requires a fair knowledge of higher mathematics, mathematical astronomy and physics, surveying, and some knowledge of modern European languages, have been offered appoint ment. Other examinations for the de partmental service which offer good op portunities for appointment to men are that for Inspector of meats in the bu reau of animal Industry, and that for Junior civil engineer. In the railway tiinll service 1 from 700 to 800 appoint ments a year have been made for the last four or five years, at an entrance salary of $800 per annum. Mpst of the eligihlcs from the different teacher ex aminations for the Indian service are usually appointed at entrance salaries of from $000 to $000 per annum. Per sons who pass the examinations for bookbinder, pressman, electrotype fin isher, electrotype niolder and stereo typer for the government printing of fice have a very good opportunity for appointment. The supply of compositor eligihlcs. on the otherlmnd, is usunly in excess of the demand. The annual report of the Civil Ser vice Commission is largely statistical. It opens with the statement Hint 47,07-”* persons wertj examined during the year, of whom 21,028 were examined for the department service. This ser vice does not Include merely the de partments at Washington, but all the federal classified services outside of Washington, with the exception of the postal customs, internal revenue and government printing services. Thus, the railway mall and Indian services are divisions of the departmental ser vices. Nearly 21,000- persons were ex amined for the postotliee service, or a little over a thousand less than the number examined for the department al service. About sixty-nine per cent., or 33.790. of those taking examinations passed, and 14,950 failed. Compared with the year previous, this represent ed an increase of 2.712 in the number of persons examined, a decrease of 1.- 298 in the number who passed, and an Increase of 5.410 In the number who failed. The total number of person* re reiving appointment, excluding the Philippine service and the municipal service of the District of Columbia, neither of which is subject to the pro visions of tin 1 civil service act, was 9,- 870. distributed ns follows: Depart mental service (excluding the railway mail and Indian services). 3.033; rail way mail service. 810; Indian service, 270; postotliee service, 4,288; custom house service. 302; government print ing service, 172: internal revenue ser vice. 83. Two-thirds of the appoint ments In the departmental service proper and nearly one-half of the ap pointments in the Indian service were of persons who had passed non-ednen tioital examinations. These examina tions. which are sometimes termed registration or experience examina tions. are mainly based upon n consid eration of the length and quality of the experience and the physical fitness of applicants. They are usually held for positions requiring a knowledge of one of the mechanical trades or skilled manual occupations. COLORADO’S CAPITAL. Mrs. Flue I*. Ernest will leave about the middle of September for St. Louis. .Mrs. Ernest Is u member of tlie Nation al Board of Lady Maungers of the World’s Fair. She was chosen during the winter for the position by a nation al commission of nine. Tlie board meeting is set for September 30tli and Mrs. Ernest expects to be gone several weeks. In the United States Circuit Court of A ppeuls September 2nd the case of Postmaster B:ny of Central City was disposed of in his favor. He was sued on his bond because he had sublet a portion of the building which was used us a postofflee and had placed the rent collected in his own pocket. Judge Hal lett’s decision in his cats* was sustained and the court decided that nobody would have to pay any costs. Attorney General Post has received some of the pleas for the state of Colo rado in the Colorado-Kansas water suit. This is the suit in which Kansas holds that the old doctrine of riparian rights should prevail in the use of the Arkan sas river water, while Colorado con tends that the only way for the irriga tion of arid lands is the appropriation or priority system. Under tlie old com mon law it was obligatory for the own er of -the land along a river course to let the natural How of water go by his land. Under the priority system tlie water can lie diverted from its course and used for irrigation purposes. The state of Colorado is, under the direc tion of the attorney general, getting its pleas into shape for presentation to the Supreme Court of the United States when the case conies up. There is some doubt expressed by those familiar with the situation that the Supreme Court of the United States will assume jurisdiction in the case. In a case be tween the state of Wisconsin and the city of Duluth, in which tlie diversion of water was the matter at issue, the Supreme Court refused to Intervene, as an act of Congress had been passed.— Denver Itepublienn. State Industrial School. The report of Judge Benjamin B. Lindsey of the Juvenile Division of the Arapahoe County Court for the period Included between January 7, 11K)1 and July 1, 1002, has attracted much atten tion, not only in Denver, but in other cities uml states:. Ills treatment of delinquent children lias been generally commented on and generally commend ed. Wlmt he says in relation to the Colorado Industrial School will there fore lie read with Interest. After com menting on tlie provision made in tlie laws of 1901 for a parental school, which was not established, he says: “In our opinion an industrial school such as that conducted at Golden, Col orado, at Lansing, Michigan, and In several other states, presents no reas onable disadvantages as compared with parental schools. The separation of children of this character can not be regulated by any rule as to the form of delinquency of which they may lie guilty. Our experience shows that it does not furnish a safe or satisfactory test, at least in our county. Separa tion according to ages, if this be possi ble (and if separation be necessary) ap peals to us ns furnishing the only prac ticable rule to be guided by. Such sep aration is. ns far as possible, main tained at our industrial school. Many boys con—Icted in this court of burg lary liave shown more gratifying re sults under the probation system than boys convicted of habitual truancy. Out of over 230 cases in this court where burglary or larceny was the form of delinquency (many of them prosecuted for disorderly conduct only) there were seventeen commitments to the Industrial school; and out of 177 cases for truancy, all originally prose cuted ns such, there have been com mitted twenty-one boys, but as hereto fore pointed out herein, all excepting six were guilty of other and more seri ous crimes; or just about double the number of commitments for truancy In proportion to charges for that offense as there were commitments for the more seriously regarded offenses of burglary or larceny. The truth Is. all are the result, more or h'ss, of irre sponsibility. thoughtlessness, misguid ed and misdirected energy. Why is the Idea of separating delinquent boys into classes because of vicious effects of as sociations nearly always directed at industrial schools and not at parental or public schools? It is admitted that there are always dangers from the ef fects of such association. But this dan ger exists equally in every parental school and to a more or less extent every public school. In most cases the condition of a tru ant boy taken from the public school nnd placed in the industrial school. In s.) far as the dangers from association with older or worse boys is concerned, is to no serious extent altered. Such dangers necessarily exist in the life of every boy. no matter how situated. The name of our industrial school might be very -properly changed to ‘Parental School.’ No doubt, at the end, however, that ill-fated liame ‘Reform School,’ would overtake it and it would be as sociated in the minds of the people ns such. A change of name would not en tirely remedy the evil here referred to. There must be a change in public im pression nnd sentiment. The industri al school is just as much a part of the public school educational system ns the Stnte School of Agriculture or the State School of Mines. No more serious in justice is committed by the public than that impression so commonly accepted that it is a pennl institution. The law of tlie state specifically fixes its status as an educational institution. It should of itself be no disgrace or handicap to any child of the Juvenile court or the industrial school to have been tried for disorderly conduct in the one or to linve received part of its education in the other. It is ref resiling to note that such impression is being gradually eliminated in the face of a more enlight ened nnd charitable public sentiment, and the oflicers of this court are under lasting obligation to the heads and management of some of the largest business Institutions in the city of Den ver for the employment, aid nnd en couragement given such boys. It lias (been appreciated and responded to in |n more satisfactory nnd gratifying manner than is generally met with (among boys not so situated." DENVER MARKETS Cattle.

Denver, Sept. 0.—Railway passenger men are jubilant over the tourist busi ness for the summer ami estimate that the travel to the state has been twen ty-live per cent, larger this summer than it was last summer. As 7u,(MK) tourists visited Colorado during the heated term last year, the number this season will nearly reach to the 100.000 mark. Trains in the mountains are running full, and even on ilie narrow gauge system the pas senger traffic is unprecedented. An estimate of the amount of money left in Colorado during a single season by 100,000 visitors gives nil idea of the wealth Colorado possesses in clnnite and scenery. Hotel men are of the opinion that tourists will average $T»o each for expenditures while in the state. This being accepted, tlie total enrichment of Colorado citizens for the season now’ closing apnounts to the handsome sum of ?r».000,000.
