1 here is much conjecture about
;iil';iirs at Washington but our
correspondent there says rhe on
ly things for certain there are:
1. Presideut Taft lias by exec
utive order placed all the 4th
class postmasters under the Civil
Service, that is all postmaslers
drawing less than $1,000 per
annum. This means that the
present 4th class postmasters
will hold for life, or during good
behavior, unless President
Wilson revokes President Taft's
order. Whether he will revoke
it nobody knows.
2. Most of the places worth
having except those which have
to he,' confirmed by the Senute
have been for some tune under
civil service. This greatly lessens
the number of positions former
3. For tv enty years the custom
has been for fedoral officials up
pointed for four years, such as
postmasters, U S. Marshals
ect., to serve out their terms un
less they took part in politics
during their terms. Whether
this custom will be continued it is
impossible to say
4. President Taft is said to
have declared his intention tofil
all vacancies as soon as t he v oc
cur. But whether the Senate wil
confirm his appointees, or hold
up their nomination, it is impos
!ible to even guess.
5. The custom has been for the
patronage of any particular state
to be distributed through the
Senators and Representatives
thereof who are of the same po
litical persuasion as tho admin
istratiun, if any such there be,
and if none such, then through
the national committeeman or
Mimo dependable friend or
friends. Under this arrangement
Representatives are depended
upon to recommend postmasters
in their own districts while Sen
ators are depended upon to rec
oiniueiid postmasters in Congress
ioual-districts not represented by
Congressman of the same politic
al faith as the President. .Sen
atorsaie iiImi depended upon to
recommend for marshalships and
ollices of that kind, including
departmental positions and
p'nees in the consular and diplo
matic service, and in fact' till
ullices not local. Of course, as
a rule the Senators consult with
Representatives in tliC6e mat
ters, all trying to do the most
possible fur their constituents.
0. What scheme for selecting
postmasters, letc, President
Wilson and his Cabinet may
adopt is wholly conjectural.
Somo advocate one plan nud
borne another. Consequently it
might be best for those intend-1
ing to be applicants to let mat
ters rest until the situation clears
up somewhat ; but where one of
more aspirants for n particular
start in to secure signers to pe
titions, recommendations, etc.',
it might be wise for all aspirants
to do so ton.
It has been figured out by some
of the newspaper correspondents
in the national capital that Mr.
Wilson, when he .enters the
White House on March 4, will
find that he lias the power to iill
directly 10,8519 gevernment post
ions. They declare the appoint
ive places requiring confirmation
are divided as follows:
Departments S t a t e, 441;
treasury, 75J0; War (excluding
army) 0; Justice, H8:J; Postoffice,
7,5)58; Navy (excluding officers)
11; Interier, 8751; Agriculture,
3; Commerce and Labor (exclud
ing census) 28; Civil service
commission, 4; Government
Printing Office, 1; Interstate
Commerce Commission, 7; and
Library of Congress, 1.
There should be some steps ta
ken to prevent further loss from
fires. There are a number of
houses in Clay City that have
been rented for years for revenue
inly, no attention whatever hav.
nig been taken to keep tlie chim
neys and flues in uood safe con
dition. The risk is alright where
it doesn't expose other people,
but where such property adjoins
citizens who care for their home
and its contents, there should be
a law if there is not, to either
compel tho owners to put such
property in safe condition or not
nllow it to be occupied. The city
council will doubtless take notice
of such necessity and net along
such lines ns is necessary to pre
vent as far ns possible any fur
Reports continue coming into
Washington, New York, Chicago
and other leading centers, indi
cating that there is a greater de
mand for labor in nearly all
lines than can be supplied. This
is a degree of prosperity that has
been seldomly attained in this
country. When the condition of
affairs is such that there are
more jobs than there are men to
fill them, then we have an assur
mice that prosperity is actually
present. The election of Mr. Wi.
son seems to have bad a nmxt
beneficial effect on business in
all parts of the country.
Of the total fund of nearly one
million dollars contributed to the
Republican fund only $40 is cred
ited to Kentucky. How different
did it show up by Democratic
contributions. Kentucky led all
other states, putting up more per
capita than any other Stat-.
Clay City Democrats alone put
up more money for their party
than did all the Republicans of
