ntcrlt System of Making Appoint *
incntfl Carefully Considered.
'Ill ' TlieiiilnrctntMtrrtl , Member iYrttJonal Clrll
By reform in the civil service , wo mean the
ntroductlon of the merit system of making
appointments In the public service , as op-
loscd to the old spoils or patronage system ,
Jim essential difference between the two
lystetnscan bo summed ur > by saying that
.ho merit system is that which eliminates
favoritism , whether political or personal , In
n.mlng appointments , and alms to fill nil the
subordinate onicos of the government solely
with reference to the capacity of tbo appli
cants to perform the special duties of the
ilaces which they seek ; while the spoils , or
ntronago theory of making appointments ,
on the other hand , Implies that a man's lit-
loss for the place to which ho Is appointed is
luroly a secondary consideration , nnd tlyit
.ho first consideration U his fealty to the
mrty in power , or to some inlluential politi
cal chief ,
The merit system is thoroughly American ,
thoroughly democratic nnd republican , The
spoils , or patronage system , is thoroughly
unAmerlcnn , thoroughly undemocratic nnd
unropubllcan. The spoils system festers the
jrowthof n special privileged class , that Is ,
.he class of political workers. The merit
system , or system ot civil service reform , pre
vents the growth of this class , and fills the
nublrt : servlco with people who nvo really the
servants of tbo whole public , not the servants
of any particular individual or particular
[ larty , and who keep their ofticcs only so long
as they servo the public faithfully and well ,
without regard to the influence ot their party
backers or the fnto of their party friends.
The spoils rfystom inevitably produces a custo
or class of men \vho go Into politics fora
livelihood , nud who uiiiko the busi
ness of ofllco getting their only
aim. Tlio.se men care little for
the questions which really make
up political life. They are only subordinately -
natoly Interested in protection or free trade ,
blmetnllsm or monomotnllsm ; what they care
for is the ofllccs. It is a matter of bread and
butter with them to manage the primaries
anil control the elections , nnd us ttioyliavonn
active personal interest In the matter the
chances are always In their favor as against
the mass of honest non-oftlcaholding citizens.
Accordingly under the spoils system the
great caste of olllceholders oxorciisoa most
noxious Iniltieuuo on politics. I'runably there
Is no other ono influence In American Ilfe.not ,
even the influence of the rum shops , which
has produced so much degradation In our po-
llllcnl life as the system of spoils appoint
ments , the theory that to the victors In a
political contest belong the spoils , for which
the whole people p.iy.
1 hold that thn radical Introduction of the
reform system of mnkiiigappolntinents would
measurably improve the public service , nnd
would immeasurably improve public life. It
would sound thu death knell of n host of
cheaper and viler politicians ; and they na
turally regard it with peculiar hatred mid
abhorrence. There arc of course misguided
men of honesty and ability who are opposed
to reform , nnd there are a great ranuy good
neoplowho uro indifferent or hostile through
sheer Ignorance. Hut ulnotecn-twentioths of
Its active opponents , whether in coiiRress or
elsewhere , are sure to bo men whose mere
presence iu our political llfo is a curse to the
country ; men of narrow minds and defective
consciences , who feel a natural and sour hat
red toward uny system that means good gov
ernment and honesty. The immense horde
of olllco-soekera mid of oBicholdors under the
patronage system furnishes these base politi
cal leaders with n mercenary arm v , compact
uhd well disciplined. Their opposition to the
lorm system is strenuous and bitter because
they realize that it strikes at their power.
On the other hand , thu average good citi
zen has but a general interest. In its success.
Ho has no special interest or concern in the
matter. Ills interest is simply that of all
good citizens , and henco'U Icss'elTeetlvo than
is the concrcto and selfish hostility of the
spoilsman' . It Is this which accounts for the
comparative slow progress of the reform.
It is noteworthy that the opponents of the
reform never uudcrauy circumstances speaks
the truth In opposing it or advances a single
argument against It which is worth refuting ;
his wcnppn.s are merely slander and misrep
resentation. Ho has no coso , and ho knows It
and therefore takes refiigo la mendacity.
Ono of his cheapest falsehoods persistently
indulged in , although continually exposed , Is
to the effect that tuo examinations for entry
Into civil service ore Impractical. The man
who asserts this , either assorts what ho
knows to bo false or else ho Is so ignorant of
the subject tllut ho has no right to speak
about it. Our examinations nro absolutely
practical , and the questions wo nsk are abso
lutely relevant to the duties the various can
didates are cxpectsd to perform.
Nino-tenth of our positions are
Illlcd from examinations for clerk ,
copyist , letter-carrier , nnd the like. A clerk
or copyist wo examine m spelling1 , penman
ship , copying , letter-writing , aim simple
arithmetic. Thcso nro precisely tbo subjects
in which n man has to possess'proficiency if
ho wishes to bo a good copyist or dork.
Similarly , n stenographer is examined iu
stenography , a typewriter In typo-writing.
A railway mail clerk is tested iu his knowl
edge of the railway inull-systoms of his divi
sion and of the geography of the United
States. A lottor-carrler Is tested as to his
skill ana speed in reading addresses aud his
knowledge of the local delivery of his city.
All our questions nro absolutely practical ,
absolutely relevant , and experience has
shown that they test in the best possible
manner the capacity of trio candidates. The
offices wherein the Hvll service law is best
observed , are precisely the ofllccs In which
the public is best served and the interests of
the community received most prompt aud
Intelligent attention. The best postolllcos In
the country ( to take a few examples out of
many ) , those lllto the postofllco at Boston ,
under Mr. Corso : at Brooklyn , under Air.
Hendrlcks ; at 1'hUndclphlu , under Mr.
Field ; at Indianapolis , under Mr. Wallace ;
nt Chicago , under Mr , Sexton , whore the
civil service law has boon observed in spirit
The law Is long past Its experimental
stage. It has been tried faithfully for seven
years , nnd wherever it has had a fair chance-
It has worked admirably and has produced
the greatest Improvement over thn old sys
tem. At present about ft fourth of the onicos
of thocountry are under the lawthat Is , are
in the classlllod service , as It is called. Thus
nearly thirty-two thousand places nro with
drawn from the degrading and demoralizing
effects of the spolli system. It is earnestly
to ho wished that this system may In the end
bo extended so ns to cover tha entire public
service of the government , excepting the few
positions where the duties nro really politi
cal. The thorough elimination of 'politics
from the civil servlco unflor the United
Stutos government would hoof all reforms
the most benoliclal , nml would produce the
best and most lasting results in purifying
polities throughout the country.

ITALY ON HER HIGH HORSE ,
ICONTINUKU nio.M FIIIRT
n Italy ns well as In one section of tholtallnn
colony In this country to secure the recall of
Mr. Kovn. lie has been accused of nil sorts
of unpleasant tilings , union i ? which were the
nllcged ido of the decoration of "tho cross of
: he crown of Italy , " with helniz mixed up In
, ho padtono system , nnd In a tobacco con.
tract , under winch it Is charged that ho iitni
sumo other Italians doTraudud tha Ital
ian government out of several inlll-
lens of francs , It is possible
that his recall Is connected with
thcso charges , out If this were the case U
would have been In order for him to have an
nounced thei name of his .successor at the
time of presenting1 his recall to the secretary
of state. This ho did not do.
The utmost retlccnco is maintained among
the officials of the state department as well
ns by the members of the Italian legation ,
all of whom positively decline to say any
thing nt nil on the subject. In diplomatic
circles tlio ntTa ! ' Is discussed from the stand
point assumed that Favn Is recalled on ac
count of a hostile feeling among the Italian
aiithorltlos towards the United States , nnd
the most us tutu diplomat In tiiocorpi does
not hosltato to pronounce the action of Italy
ns injudicious , un who and petulant.
Conversing with your correspondent to-
nk'ht one gentleman , who baa been In the
diplotnntlu service for moro than twenty
years , said : "Had this Inclduntoccurred in
my L.uroio | n government everyone would
Imvo expected to see immediate preparations
Tor open hostilities. The next step would
linve been 11 declaration of war , Utithoro all
is different. Xo one looks for-war. Wo shall
sue another minister accredited to the United
States In short order. It cannot bo possible
Unit the king of Italy will so far forgot what
Is duo to the ofliciah of your state depart
ment ns to sever all diplomatic
relations because some of his subjects nro sup
posed lohnvo been murdered. Wo have all
watched the proceedings In Now Orleniu
\\lth the utmost Interest , and it seems that no
ono has yet proved that a single subject of
the Italian Itlng has lost his life. Until the
allegiance of the murdered men is clearly
proven it is nut within the province of any
foreign power to demand redress for.supposed
Injuries , "
The scnro head which appeared over the
account of the affair in the local paper which
had the news naturally created the greatest
excitement in Washington. It was the solo
topic of discussion in the lobbies of the ho
tels , the clubs nnd upon tlio streets. Army
and navy people were besieged with Inquiries
as to the strength of the Italian army and
navy , nnd legal books upon the subject of
international law were more eagerly read and
examined than over before. Italy is the
third naval power in the world nt
the present time , and this fact was
not reassuring. But among the officials of
the government not a shadow of alarm win
manifested. The few senators and congress
men who could bo found laughed at the idea
of any serious consequences resulting from
the recall of the diplomat.
Probably the most rational explanation of
the somewhat oxtraordlnnrv action of Italy
wat made tonight by n gentleman who Is
thoroughly posted in Italian affairs. Ho suld :
"Tho Italians as n people are greatly worked
up over the killing of their countrymen in
New Orleans. They know nothing of
the real .situation and they have
no idea of the difference between the
stiitc and federal governments of
this country. The anti-administration
party in Italy has fostered the Idea that the
United States has not taken proper steps to
wards securing redress for tlio wrongs of the
people , nnd tlio result is that the greatest
feeling of animosity towards the party in
power is manifested. It has become neces
sary to do something. The authorities fully
understand the dual system of government
prevailing hero , but the people do not. con
sequently. In obedience to the popular de
mand for immediate action of some sort , the
minister has been recalled. There is no rea
son to aunpo'io fora moment that Fava's re
call means hostile action on the part of
Italy. On tlio contrary , the fact that
a secretary of legation is loft at the legation
shows that Italy will continue to bo repre
sented , and , while Favn will probably never
return , there is every reason to bollovo that
some ono clsd will be sent in his place 'Very
Attorney General llogerfc Talks.
NEW Oiti.u.iN's , ' La. , Alarch 31. An Associ
ated press reporter called upon Attorney
General Rogers tonight and asked him for
an expression of opinion Upon the recall of
the Italian minister and also the status of the
case In so far as the legal department was
concerned. Judge Rogers said the aspect of
the cnso was unchanged. Ho was unnblo
to say what the outcome would be. The mat
ter is now entirely In the hands of the grand
Jury , and until it submitted a repo rt ho could
not say what the line of prosecution would
bo. The stnto of Louisiana , ho felt , was
fully capable of enforcing Its laws. There
had been no now proceedings between tha
state and Secretary Blnluo. Not n word had
been received from Mr. Blaine since Gov
ernor Nichols wrote his reply nnd Gov
ernor Nichols has sent no supplemental com
munication to the state department. Judge
Hogers did not care to discuss the slgnlll-
canco of the recall of Baron Fava or the llke-
hood of hostilities.
An Associated Press reporter called at the
residence of ( iovcrnor Nichols , but was in
formed that the governor was ill and could
see no ono.
News of the recall of the Italian minister
when received was promptly posted on bulle
tin boards and printed m newspaper extras.
The newspaper ofllces were surrounded by
crowds during the evening and the news was
circulated from etui end of the city to the
other. There was much talk touching tlio
possible international complications and the
likelihood of hostilities prevailing. Senti
ment hero , however , Is nnciinnged respecting
the act of the citizens in lynching tto as
Mayor Shakespeare this evening deemed It
inadvisable to make nt extended statement
of his views at present. Ho thought if the
worst came to the worst the United States
would bo fully able to protect itself. Per
sonally , ho apprehended no serious trouble
nnd felt certain Italian ships of war could
not possibly approach near onouch to Now
Orleans to inllict Injury upon hen
Reeling A-uioutr Chicii-to Italians.
CHICAGO , March 81. Prominent Italians in
Chicago discussed the report from Washing
ton tonltrht with much Interest. Editor Du-
rnntoof Ultalia said : "I do not bollovo the
Italian government has recalled Baron Fava
with any hostile Intent , nor do I
believe Ultra . Is any danger of war.
As to what Italian citizens here would do In
case of war , I cannot say. I would not bo
willing to take up arms against my native
country , nor would 1 light against my
adopted one. If the Italian government is
nuiUlng demands for some moro active move
ment toward reparation , It is only what
might have been expected after the feeble
letter of Governor Nichols. " ;
Ur. Vollni said that in case of war ho
thought most of the Italians In the United
States would return to Italy , Ho does not ,
however , expect any trouble.

MiOor Benhain is not yet certain as to
whether the cavalry practice will bo held this
year at Bellevue or nt the now range beiug
prepared at Chicago. For two years last
past the cavalry practice for this division has
been held at Bcllovuoon account of the excel
lence of thoVimping ground an Jtho range.
It Is quite probable that it will como to Uello-
vuo again , because it would bo an ox pensive
proceeding to ship horses from Nebraska to
Chicago for Ube at this practice ana there
nro no cuvajry troops stationed near
Chicago , so the horses would neces
sarily have to bo shipped from Ne
braska or some point in the west where
the cavalry troops arc stationed. Horses
have been brought down from Fort Niobrara
the past two years for this purpose. Soldiers
rould do nothing with green horses at target
practice. The horse that has been accus
tomed to the cr.iclt of tbo rlllo andr evolver is
an absolute necessity for this purpose.
There will be a ch'ango iu the silhouettes
used this year , Instead of the figure of a
man on foot the soldiers will bliuo away at
the ligurfrof n man on horseback.
Theio silhouettes will bo set in a Una about
four roils apart and the marksmen will ride
past them , but will follow a line constantly
growing nearer to the silhouettes. The llrst
llguro will ho twenty-live yards from the line
from which the cavalrymen must shoot ,
the next twenty yards , the third llfteen ,
the fourth ten and tuo last ono of the llvo

Prominent sporting men from nil over thu

was free , but the odds were all on Dlxon ,
This is probably accounted for by the fact
that a rumor prevailed all day that McCarthy
had uecn drinking nnd was not taking proper
care of himself.
The light wns for the featherweight cham
pionship and $1,000. Side hots were plenti

In the second round McCarthy wns too
eager , nnd , throwing himself open'to Dixou's

being almost knocked out the second tine.
In tbo third round McCarthy again tried

In tno fifth round Dlxon forced the light

one clean knock-down.
In the next three rounds there was hard
lighting , with honor. * about oven.
In thn ninth round McCarthy punched
hard at long range aud Dixou landed heavily
on his nose , making It bleed freely.
In the next round both tried long range
t'ictlcs with no particular damage.
In the eleventh round there was hard fight-
Ing.nnd McCarthy cut a deep gash under
Dixou's right eye with a left-handed swing
ing upper cut.
In tlio twelfth round Dlxon forced matters ,
and McCarthy , who was blooding freely ,
clung to his nock to avoid punishment.
In the next two rounds McCarthy was very
cautious , but in tbo fifteenth rushed and got
m three loft-hand upper cuts which split
Dixou's lip and loTicwt-d tils tooth.
For the next llvo rounds , although there
