THE PRESS. MONDAY MORNING, MAA 12, 1878. Er-iBY regular attache of tho Press is furnished vMu» §ard certificate countersigned by Stanley T. Pmil**, Editor. All railway, steamboat an 1 hole ■mafferb will confer a favor upon us by demanding •rwlmi»l» of every person claiming to represent our )nr jsI, as we have information that several “buna mers'* are seeking courtesies in tlie name o t .e Pituss, and wo have no disposition to bo, oven i s vely, a party to «uch fraud WIt „n Dot read anon^u* letter* and eoatmuni .a;ton,. Iho name and address of tlte wn.er are in ail cose. in,II*,*n, .b «. u,.< necessarily for publication but as a guaranty of good fault. W-cannot undortako to return or reserve com munications that are not used. Secretary Richardson and the CiTil Service. Washington correspondents of the inde pendent press, so called, have been telling us all along that Secretary Richardson has al ready consummated plans that will nullify all the good that has thus far been realized by the operation of the civil service rules, and all that, is hoped for by futuie application. The general public have, however, come to give little heed to the specials of the indepen dent press as both their predictions aad utter ance* are fallacious and malignant. m examining the recent lists ot tour nunu red and seventy-six persons who passed the last Treasury civil service examination for the purpose of filling torty-five vacancies in the department, the Secretary has letrned the fliults and embarrassment of the system which were partially appreciated by the old Adviso ry Board and considered without conclusion. The first difficulty encountered by Judge Richardson is the fact that of the new ap pointments, a majority came from a region within forty miles of Washington. To obvi ate this cause of cnmplaint, the Secretary will fcvor a plan of apportioning appointments among the several States. The second embarrassment grows out Cf the fact that the competitors to fill the vacan aies are thrown open to male and female ap plicants alike, and that a strict application of axisting rules forces women who are able to answer the questions required by the rules laid down by the Board, into positions re quiring a knowledge of general business af fairs which it is absolutely necessary for the ef ficiency of the service should be filled by men. Mr. Richardson’s sugge:tion to remedy this defect is to classify the positions to be filled by women and confine their competition accord ingly. As it now stands, a woman passes to a position where her duties would be to audit accounts, involving a know'.edge of transp.or- 1 tation rate*, rates of fare, hotel expenditures and other matters which the Secretary thiuks that not one in a thousand however well ed ucated, will attain. The third recommendation of Mr. Rich ardson will be that the rule of probation now provided shall be enforced with vigor. Every appointment should be temporary, and every appointee should go out, who at the end of six month's trial, fails to be recommended for permanent appointment. The Secretary will further suggest that the examination be made by a board entirely ind pendent of the de partment whi:h shall be in session all the time, ready to examine persons fr jtu all parts of the country whenever they go to Washing ton. Mr. Richardson proposes to adhere to pro motion by competitive examination, but giv ing greater prominence to fitness for particu lar duties and a greater prominence, also, to the manner in which men examined for pro motion have conducted themselves while in office, and to their character, habits, etc. ine last ana principal suggestion ot Mr. Richardson is to make absolute the prohibi tion against making a removal to make a va cancy to be filled by another persoD, which will effectually cut off the greatest annoyance and injury inflicted by members of Congress under the pressure of persistent applicants. These points the Secretary will bring before the Advisory Board anu advocate a modifica tion of existing rules in conformity thereto. As the above are the only modifications that Mr. Richardson has made, it is evideat that the continued declarations of the opposition press that he proposes to abandon them, is unqualifiedly false. All of his recommenda tions arc calculated to adjust the civil service rules with a view to secure the greatest effi ciency. Coal will be higher this year than last, not because it costs more to mine it but because a wealthy railroad monopoly in Pennsylvania has made an arrangement with coal mine pro prietors to keep the prices up to the figure they have advanced them during the winter. It is a wealthy combination and every coal producer tbat does not enter cheerfully into the arrangement, which is really in the inter est of the railroad and canal monopoly,is ruin ed. It is said tbat English capitalists inter ested in coal mines in England have lent large suras of money to strengthen the coal combination in Pennsylvania. It is said to be a‘ present impossible to secure the building of a competing line with the existing monopoly so that the present increased prices will rule for a time. Trr» friends of prohibition in the Canadian Parliament have been showing their col leagues that four-fifths of the crime is due to the liquor traffic—that out of 28,288 com mitments to the prisons of Ontario and Qu bec, 21.236 were for intoxication and for crimes perpetrated by persons under the in fluence of ardent spirits. As an offset to these facts which are not denied, it is uiged that the government received a revenue of #5,034,543,58 from the liquor trafic in 1872 and tbat its loss would produce serious em ba-rassment. To this the prohibitionists an swer that under a strictly enforced prohibitive policy the decreased expenditures of prisons, a lylunis and officers would more than meet the deficiency. Horace M. Jordan announces in the Sunday Star of yesterday, bis retirement from the editorship of tbat journal. Mr. Jordan's experience and culture have been manifested in the selections of miscellaneous reading matter, and his editorials have been marked by a kindly and genial spirit which his made journlistic associitions with him exceedingly agreeable. He never forgets in the zeal of editorship that he is a gentleman. He has been a close neighbor of ours, and we exceedingly regret any change oi interruption in the relations. We hope, and with consid erable confidence too—that Mr. Jordan may he induced to continue his connection with journalism in this city. The New York Board of Education have voted not to receive Congressman Roosevelt’s extra back pay and the people of Kane Coun ty, Illinois, have resolved to return tbe por tion of Gen. Farnsworth's back pay that be allotted to them to tbe United States Treasury. The Congressman, who expects to have a future iu active politics should begin to con clude that his only course is to return the money to the Treasury. There are species of strikes that are defensible but that of Con 8res“ is not—or at least the people can’t be made to see it. 7'7l<1 t'lal the Indian scare is doing much to prevent . . b . , . , ‘,“e re-organization of tbe student expeditions that y»i,v f been engaged on Summ r ! t S°me lifts explorations in the w 7* m 8Clen' Many of these amateur scientiS^'™^ led to join in these expedition, for 7 b provement of their health; but the visionTr war-painted Indians in search of 8caj s be gets a conviction that the boundless wilds of the West do not at present offer superiati°e attractions to the invalid seeking physical res toration. The reputed author of a letter published in the Sunday Star on the Gubernatorial nomination, signed ‘‘Nestor,” is about the age of Judge Kent. The fact that he objects to the Judge principally on account of age, may be accepted as a formal declaration that Nestor will refuse any further participation in public affairs. The Bangor Whig publishes the name, of S 'ng"s««» iD P°litiCS’ Wh° deCla'e f°r Judge Kent. __ Salmon Portland Chase. To the Editor of the Press: Of all the hiographical notices of the late Chief Justice Chase, no one explains the un common circumstances of a child’s being named for a town. All say he was named for his un cle Salmon Chase who was a distinguished lawyer of Portland, from 1789 to his death in 1806. The father of the Judge, who lived in Cor nish, N. H., had a relative—I think a nephew, named Salmon Chase who was not a favorite of Judge Chase’s father,jand,wishing to perpet uate his brothers memory having the same name, and also to honor the town in which he won his laurels at the bar, he called bis infant son Salmon Portland. Mrs. Stowe in her “Men of the Times” says Salmon Chase died suddenly while pleading in court. This is not correct; he died August 10th, 1806 of a billious fever after a sickness of six days. She evidently confouuds Mr. Chase with J>hn Chipman, another lawyer whose tomb-stone in the old burying grouud says, “He died July 1,1768, of apoplexy with which ho was suddenly seized in the court house in Falmouth while he was arguing a case before the superior court of judicature then sitting.” Windham, May 17.

TnE Galaxy for June finishes Mrs, Edwards’ story entitled, “The Vagabond Heroiue,” and gives four more chapters of De Forest’s excit ing novel, “The Wetherel Affair.” These are the only continued stories, Gen. Custar’s "Life on the Plains,” another instalment of which is given, hardly coming under the bead of stor ies, though it is quite as entertaining in its way. H James, Jr., contributes a tale entitled “The Sweetheart of St. Bnseux,” and there are a number of poems,two graceful “Gascon stories” and a tale of very doubtful merit by W. L. Al den. Justin McCarthy has a well written'arti clo on “Leon Gnmbetta;” and these, with other useful and readable matter, fill the number. Biddeford and Saco.—We learn that Saco and Biddeford are moving systematically in aid of the great fair, and with good prospect of very liberal results. We also learn that the efforts of Biddeford in this directiou are to be supplemented by the very generous action of their Mayor Hon. J. H. McMu’lan, who con tributes thereto the munificent sum of one thousand dollars. Such liberality, inspired as in this case, by a just appreciation and bioad comprehension of the benefits and general ob jects of the Maine General Hospital, is a most favorable augury for the full and final success of the institution. Freeport. Hon? S. A. Holbrook has generously given the town of Freeport two lots of land, adjoin ing each other, containing 35,000 feet each, upon which are to be erected a town house and a free high school bouse.
