I DATA FOR DEMOCRATS
Who Contemplate Becoming Appli
r cants for Office.
A Few Fact« Bearing Upon tfce Various
' Places of Profit Falling to West Vir
ginians—The Civil Service
At the request of » considerable number
oi reader«, the Register has looked up a
tew tacta conneoted with the varions fed
eral offices in this city and State, the
salaries, location, and the time of the ex
piration of the commissions held by the
- present incumbents, when tenure of office
obtains, and in additien. has ascertained the
methods of the Civil Service Commission
in the examination of candidates for posi
tions at Washington. 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. H., one!
deputy at $800; Parkersburg, one deputy
at $1,200; Martinsburg,one deputy at$l,00'^;
Charleston, one deputy at $1,200; Bald
; Knob, Boone county, one deputy at $80C.
Applicants for these positions do not come
under the Civil Service law. Parties who
desire appointment as deputy collectors
should make %pplication directly to the Cot
lector, taking care that their papers have
good backing from representative party men,
residents oi the "collection division which
they are applying for. 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. There
are three storekeepers at $1,240 each, and
four storekeepers and gaugers at $î>30
U KIT ED STATES MARSHAL.
The commission of the present incumbent
of this office, <J. W. 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
SrUVKTOR OK CUSTOMS.

aleo custodiau of the public buildiDgs. dis
bursing agent aud agent of the Marine Hos
pital. The commissîbn of the present in
cumbent expires in August, 1886. The
salary is, we believe, $350 and fees. As
• uMocian he has the appointment of a jo ni
tor fct the custom house, who receives a
> airiy ol $»'<0 per month in summer and $75
j er ttonth in winter. 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. •
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,

tit s of the positions applied for. All regu

or more persons are employed); if for the

either customs office in which service is

j tivity, that he or she does not use intoxi

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

which in no case ia to exceed live hours in

cant's name, with this number, is placei in
a sealed envelope before the examiaa'.uQ.
The papers art reused by the examiners

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

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

The incorporators of the Natural Gas

probably be sunk near the State line, and
then, should the result be unsatisfactory,

The lädier of the Benevolent Union t&lka
of holding » Kirmes» daring the past wir

•( 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. To day, how
ever, will be a good oue lor them to turn
over the aforesaid leat aa it is yet too cool
for the usual open air services on the Capi
tol pavement, and some of the good little
boys probably went to bed earlier than usual
last nit ht.
The girls who saw it cannot find adjec
tif es strong enough to express their admir
ation for the cream satin peacock embroid
ered drees worn by Rhea while here. 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. Not at

The Wheeling girl ;a certainly a novôl
reading Ct^attifô. ï do beliêve we read ni
many of that claps of books as anj similar
number of girls in the country. They are
not altogether trashy ones either, for while
most ol them vote Scott's rather a bore,
there is a steady demand for the standard
authors of fiction. 1 am told tha* in by
gone days, it was fashionable for
young ladies to fall in love with the 'Ro
chester" of Jane Ejre, and later on to set
their young affections upon the "Laurie" of
Little Women lame. 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

Society folks are nov busy eitker getting

of the Sabbath Stillness wNich has settled on
the town in regard to soci.%1 matters. It is
possible, however, that had any entertain

there might? have been a scarcity of genüe

either for their own health or to attend the
bedside of a dying relative or friend.

Rain or Shine, Sun or Snow, Breeze or Blizzard, our Stock
cf Clothing and Furnishing Goods .
Must be Sold?
We can't wait for sunshine and roses. We bought th&
goods to sell during the month of April and we are goin^ ta
sell them in April, let the weather be what it may.
Other dealers may sit still and sigh for seasonable weather
but that's not the kind of dealers we are. If the weather doesn't
come to suit us, we make the prices suit the weather. "If the
mountain won't come to Mohammed, why Mohammed must
go to the mountain.'' In short, what we mean to say is, that
if there is no great demand for Spring Goods at usual prices,
we will ir ake unusual prices and thereby create the demand.
Every counter, table and shelf in our MMENSE DOUBLE
STORES is loaded down with new goods, manufactured for
this Spring's trade. These goods must be sold during April,
and sell them we will—sell them we must—sell them we shall.
True, we shall not realize the profit we should have done had
"Winter lingered less lovingl) in the lap of Spring." But
that's no matter. We have put prices on the very cream of
our Spring Clothing and Spring Furnishing Goods that will
astonish any one who takes the time to visit our stores.
