The data thus obtained is here appended : COLLECTOR Of' INTERVAL REVENTE. The Collector of Internal Revenue has the personal appointment of twelve depu ties and clcrks, the location of their offices and their salaries being as follows: Wheel ing, one deputy at $1,500 and one at $1,000; Grafton, three deputies at $1,200 each; Fairmont,one deputy at $1,000; Clarksburg, i one deputy at $800; Braxton C.

Applicants for these positions do not come under the Civil Service law.

The salary of the collector is $3,250. Storekeepers and gaugers are appointed by the Secretary of the Treasury upon the recommendation of the Collector and the Commissioner of Internal Revenue.

Atkinson, expires on the I Ith ot May next. The Civil Service rules do not apply to this office in anj way. There are eleven deputies, appointed by ths Marshal, at salaries ranging from $1.500 down. The Marshal's salary is $200 and lees. SrUVKTOR OK CUSTOMS. The surveyor of customs at this city is aleo custodiau of the public buildiDgs. dis bursing agent aud agent of the Marine Hos pital.

There are also jani ois with like fakries, at Parkereburg and Chbrleston. The civil service laws have nothing to da with these offices. INSPECTORS or HULLS AND BOILERS. These offices «re not within either the tenure of office or civil service law», and in • u u' e tJ a e lik* y to be removed at any tune. But a Ithough this is a fact,the pres ent officials are liable to be retained for a long time, for the reason that it requires special knowledge in several departments ol skilled labor in order to fit a person for ! the discharge of the duties pertaining to I the offices. The salary is $1,200 for each I office. • MISCELLANEOUS. Besides the officers above named, there axe three others, District Judge, salary $.1, 500; District Attorney, salary $200 and fees, and an Assistant District Attorney, at a i salary of $500, which do not come under j the scope of this article.

CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION". lhe Civil Service Commission, for the j examination of candidates for appointments j t>t Washington in any of the various de usrtrucn's, will sit at Pittshurg sometime in the rear future. The examinations are di vided into three classes, the departmental I servie \ c UBtoms service aa i p >s'al servi "8, aid a^ain into grades based upou the sala tit s of the positions applied for. All regu lar applications for com letitive examina tion» for admission to the classified service I tr. n«t be made on elaborately gotten up Monks, which blanks can be obtained a; fol lows If for the Classified Depart ! mental address to the l'. S [ Civil Service Commission, Washing ' ton, D. C. ; if lor the classified Postal S er ! vice, to the j postmaster under whom service I is nought (limited to offices in which fifty or more persons are employed); if for the ! classified Customs Service, to the haad of either customs office in which service is 1 sought. In his application, the parson» j seeking office is required to make, amang ! other things, a statement under 8et. j ting forth his or her hame, residence, na j tivity, that he or she does not use intoxi I wots to excess, is of good heahli, occupation during each of the previous five years, ! education and where obtained. When the commission has met at a cer tain point for the purpose of holding aa ! examination, all applicants within the eus toms or postal districts coming under the , law are notified at least eight days before such examination, and are required to be present upon the day selected. The ex »mination is conducted in a room set apart 1 fur the purpose, all the applicants being : stated at a table in plain we* of the mem bers of the commission. Blanks, contain ing questions to be answered are then distributed simultaneously to the candidates, the question« being grouped by subjects, each subject upon a separate blank, I and the time occupied by each appli I ;%| în^ifînA kîa û«cw*pr iü O&rpt'llllv J recorded.

The examination papers are marked only with a number, and tne appli cant's name, with this number, is placei in a sealed envelope before the examiaa'.uQ. The papers art reused by the examiners anù uie percentage« M)d averages obtained only by number. In framing the civil service law at J draw ing up the rulea and regulations governing the Commission, the idea was that in case two or more applicants aboald stand an ex- | aminstion fora certain office, the one coming 1 obt with the higheet general or special average shoo Id have the prize. In practice, thia ia not carried oat The official making th* appointment, by some oversight in the law, is only required to confine his choice to thoee candidates who have anawered fifty percent of the questions propounded, and Uroà obtained a place on the liât of examined ap plicants, and the candidate having the low est average of thoae passing, if he have the m tot inllaence behind him, will in every case obtain the prize competed for, while he standing at the head of the list and there fore better qualified tor the duties of the office, may never be called on to serve hia country ta a departmental capacity. Pro« this it wiü be men that the first ewential I plenty of influence, and Um aecesd. -Uu ability to answer tin questions propounded And this ability, it is even alleged, can bi furnished by oatside parties at a fig are depending upon the salary at tached to the office desired It ii related by those in a portion to know that certain parties in Waahiagton, having obtained in some unknown mavaer copies of all the question blanks of the Com mission, make a business of m&rSng them to applicants far in advance of the meet irgs of the Commission, and bv this means thore willing and able to comply with their terms can post np on the question» and answer promptly ana correctly every ques tion given them. This information is furnished, however, in the expectation that no West Virginian will be base enough to take advantage of it Burs* k Covtïk's stock of spring and summer goods is now complete. HOW THEY STAND. A I.ttter That Explain« Away Any Bad Feeling That M»y Exist. As very much contradictory talk has been indulged in in regard to the secession of the nailers from the Amalgamated Association, and assertions having been made that they would antagonize the interests of the Asso ciation, the following letter "from Mr M. A Chew, Secretary of the United Nailers of America, taken from the Pittsburg labor Tribune, iB printed to show the feeling of the new association "1 have been reading the editorials in the Amalgamated Association columns of your paper, and 1 am sorry to see the feeling manifested towards nailers. I assure yoa there is no such feeling towerds the Amal gamated Association amoug us. We thought we could better advance our own interest by ourselves, and do not intend to antagonize the Amalgamation Association, hut will stand np with them and fall other labor organizations to sustain the demand of a 'fair day's pay for a fuir da^'s work." We still believe that "in union there is strength," and that is why we withdrew, for this "house was divided against itself." The nailers went into the Amalgamated Association and obligated themselves to obey their laws as a body. They have al ways done so, but they chose to recognize the constitution, and not the will of the A. A. officials as the supreme law. In saying that "the members ot Hersey lodge were al ways considered the dangerous element of their trade," he is mistaken, for in the con vention of nailers held here there were delegates from every mill in the West. The very man from whom the "traitorous language" emanated was elected to the office of President by ac clamation, and if all the nailers have to fear are "the traitors of Hersey Lodge," we will rest easy for the future of the nailing fra ir.amin fc/tlimv r\r\r\ f'lxinf two /von nitKnli^ and sustain our wages for all time 10 come. Â3 I said before, we will not antagonize the Amalgamated Association unless by at tending to our own business we do so Al though we bave differed in the past with üc.me of our fellow workmen in regard to ways and means we wish to be recognized us a fellow labar organization, and to act in barmony with all other organizations and instiuments to advance the interests ot !ubor.:' Jkrsky Jackets in every style, size and quality, Geo.

The incorporators of the Natural Gas Company of West Virginia, held a meeting held yesterday morning at the law office of W. H.'Hearne, and passed a resolution formally accepting the ordinance passed at Friday night's session of Council. The resolution passed was submitted to City Solicitor 0 Keeffe, by him was approved as bth g in proper form, and it was their duly signtd and deposited in the office of the City Clerk. In the course of a few days a general meeting of the stockholders of the company will be held, at which the subscription books will he opened, and our merchants and mamfacturer invited to subscribe to the capital stock. Mr. Vanderjrrift said yesterday that the work of drilling would be commenced with in thirty days at some point south o< West Alexander and near the \Ve«t Virginia S'ate line. The company have secured ItafifS on a large body of land running from V\ fst Alexander nearlv up to Claysville, and al.^o a small strip lying along the eastern edge of Ohio county. The first well will probably be sunk near the State line, and then, should the result be unsatisfactory, the company will go back a few miles and ti v again. However, they have no fear of failure, and say that within the specified time we will have all the gas required. Dr. Slortim, 1116 Market Street.

Ail Entertainment Which Storni Have Taken Place, but Did Not Thf Dear Boys to Turn Over a New Leaf Rhea's Charming Costumes—D*s crimination in Applauding— M Winery Openings — Novel Reading. The lädier of the Benevolent Union t&lka of holding » Kirmes» daring the past wir ter, bat tor swue reason, probably the wan •( a proper place to hold it, the idea wa abandoned at least nntii next season. J delightful Kim ess ha» just been held ii New York by prominent society people, thi Metropolitan Opera House being the seem of revelry. There were five booth», repre Eenting the same number of nationalities— Dutch, Russian, French, ftalian and Oer man—and at ail of them the costum«t o: the country represented were worn, and ap piopriate articles sold. National danee: were also given with much success. Tk< liower booth was a great sucee»; it was ir pagoda form, hung with garlands of smite* and each of the tair attendants représente« a flowtr, the rose, the daisy, pansy, viota and forget-me-not all being there in the pep son of some fair dame. Another charming and novel feature wa« a large gilt ball which was suspended from the chandelier. This was hollow and filiejl with toys and confytiocery. At a certain time the children were gathered under il and at a sign the ball opened and its con tf nis were scattered on the floor to bt scrambled for by the children. This Kirtnese was a great success, financially as well at socially. So at the earliest opportunity lei as have one, too; but for goodness sak« don't tell the gentlemen that the word ICr mees means church fair, or they will all gp to Bridgeport or Bellaire the day before it The girls have been reading the papers this week, Mr. Rkijistkr, and you may be snre that Reginald or Augustus need not tell his fair friends that he has been sick in bed all week. Neither need he expend his spare cash on chocolate creamä, for though his Dulcina will graciously accept the same, sne win noi tase 11 an pruui tuu clusive that be has never looked upon the poker chip or pocketed the equivalent there of. Yea, verily, many a Wùeeling damsel has not considered it necessary to make an e%eniog toilet this week, and has iretnbled at breakfast time lest the eye of pater famil ies rest on the name of her own particular Reginald or Augustus in the list of those who have been both called and chossn. But though the damsel wreareth a serene coun tenance and openly declares her belief in hid innocence to inquiring friends, a day of wrath is at hand for Keginald or Augustus wLeu he returneth weary from his trip. * *• * The dear boys all intend to turn over a E« w leaf— so they say. So I suppose a pood inuny of them will commence it by appear irg in church to-day, though some of thorn will look the other way while the collection is being taken up. l>ear me, I've often been uneasy lest siiangers coming to church think that all tie sinners of W heeling arq of the fair sex. so few gentlemen seeming to consider it necessary to go to church.

This costume was, 1 think, worn in the third act ol the American Countess, and is said to be ore of the handsomest ones ever worn in tbn city. By the way, the fair wearer went away very much disappointed with her reception here. To be sure a number of people were presented to her at the close of tit- last night's performance, but the usual ovation was wanting. Whv, I wonder? « * * By the way, have you not uoriced how loudly a Wheeling audience always applauds the highly moral senti mints of the play? I have often noticed thut while the average Wheelingite is rarely enthusiastic in his reception of the actor, he always loudly rejoices over the discomfort uro of the villain of the piece and the con spuent triumph of virtue. Verily, it would sec m that Wheeling is the abode of the truly good oneB ot the earth. * * * The pills have not been without a silver Iii ing to the clouds of the past week, for she must indeed be the victim of a green and yellow melancholy who does not find joy in sallying forth to the millinery opening, and lightening her own heart and papa's pocket book by the purchase of a Bpring bonnet. Atid Oy the way, I want, right here to lift up my voice in protest against the belief so deeply imbedded in the masculine soul, thnt every woman who attends such au ojt-nirg, designates the bonnet of her choice es a "love" or a "duck.'' It was a man who invented that phrase ani I only hi ne he had a wife ana six daughters to pirchase millinery for, to punish him for icveniing such a libel bn the sex. And atother thicg Mr. Rcistkr, when a woman buys a hat every other female of her ac qi aintance does not make a rush at her aLd seizing it, proceedjto try it on with mnrks of approval or the reverse.

But goodness me, the g ris would have to bê possessed of hearts as nrxible and tough as india rubber to fall in love with all, or even a portion of the heroes of the hastily read novels of the day. Pos sibly the young ladies of the present day are notas sentimental as those of the proceed ing generations, perhaps the gilded youth ol the present day is so fascinating that she does not need to her sighs on paper heroes. hnVTer th&t may be the girl of the period does not seem to waste her young affrction on the "Sir CharW Or ' Lord Percy" of the novel she readi • * * Mr«.
