WASHINGTON. June 13,-Chalrman
Proctor of th Civil Service commission to
day submitted to Postmaster Qeneral
Payne the report made by the commission
at the request of the poetmaater general
with reference to the charge of violation of
the civil aervlce regulations In the Wash
Inflon poatofllce.
In addition to the report proper and a
tranacript of the testimony taken, Mr.
Proctor presented a aummary of the find
Inge. Thla aummary concludea aa followa:
A departure from the observance of the civil
service rule appenra In the promotions ot
certain employee In the Waanlngton poat
ofllce which have been directed by the de
partment. although reports of efficiency are
neither requested nor received by the de
partment. For rolttleal Porpoaoa.
The Information dlscloaed by the Investi
gation seems to warrant the aiatement that
kpiminlmenu to classified positions In the
Washington poBtothce without examination,
by tne devloua method of appointment in
amall unclassified oflioes. or in- otllces about
to be consolidated, and subsequent transfer
and the appointments of tnose laborers
who were appointed and separated during
the aumlnimratlon of the present post
master, show a wide divergence of policy
from strict regard of the public good, and
afford Indications that the department
used the Washington postoftlce for political
and personal purposes to an extent which
left the authority of the postmaster in
trsnslers and appjintments of this sort
but little more than nominal and placed
the office. In many respects. In the rela
tlwn of a bureau to the department.
The Investigation seems to show clearly
that most of the Irregularities herein set
forth were directed by the department, or
requested or suggested by high depart
mental officials, and In either case came to
the postmaster with all the force of a di
rection. The Investigation Indicates that the em
ployes who entered the service by transfer,
and without examination, are In general In
ferior to those appointed through competi
tion. Appointments Not Necessary.
There was no necessity ot anticipating
the needs of the service by an excessive
number of appointments just before classi
fication, for the commission had registers
of ellgibles at that time, which were ample
and also appropriate, as Is shown by tne
fact that all but four of the thirty-seven
appointments have been made to the rural
free delivery service In the District of Co
lumbia outside since November 27, 1901,
were from registers then In existence.
The appointments made under the cir
cumstances above set forth resulted In a
congestion of the service, and when a re
duction la to be made the employee ap
pointed for political or personal considera
tions are cared for sometimes at the ex
pense of persons appointed upon merit and
without Influence.
The passage of the war emergency, the
amendment on December a, 1901, of the
rule referring; to transfers and new pro
visions of the revised rules which became
effective on April 15, im. will. It Is be
lieved, prevent the continuance of these
abuses In the classified service, and the
adoption, at the earliest practicable date,
of regulations 'for the employment of
laborers In the 'Washington poatoffloe. In
accordance with the executive order of
March 3S, DOS, will, there Is reason to hope,
put the employment of laborers on the
basis of fitness and the needs ot the serv
ice. Pays Asks for laveitlgatlaa. .
The Investigation was made In response
to tne following letter, dated May 4, from
the postmaster general to the commission:
I should be pleased If you would have
one of your examiners detailed tn 1.

office with a view of ascertaining whether

regarding tne report. 1 Later Mr.' Proctor,
In a verbal statement to newspaper men.
said that In all his experience with the
postofflce he had had less trouble since Mr.
Payne's lnoumbency than at any other
The postmaster general made the fol
lowing statement regarding the report:
Attention Is called to the fact that since
my Incumbency of the position of post

and gloom of the early part of the. week In
Wall street gave place to a sudden revolu
tion of sentiment on Thursday morning,
when the overextended bears rushed to
buy stocks In something of a panic.
The subsequent recovery wiped out the
week's earlier losses. The rebound was the
result of the realization that prices had
got down to a level where Investment de
mand was attracted, both for home and
foreign account
The large wheat crop promised by the
government's monthly report, the favorable
railroad earnings reported, the decision af
firming the right of the coal road presidents
to refuse certain Information demanded by
the Interstate Commerce commission and
the decline in sterling aided the recovery.

JACKSON, Ky., June 13. The prorecu-
tloa In the case of Curtis Jett and Thomas
White, charged with the assassination of
J. B. Marcum, rented early today and the
defense secured a continuance until Mon
day on account of the absence of witnesses.
As the state occupied only a little more
than two days In presenting Its testimony,
It Is believed the case will go to the jury
on Wednesdsy.
The prosecution was compelled to close
without the attendance of witnesses whose
testimony wss wanted to prove a conspir

as some have fled and others are tn hiding.
It Is claimed they are afraid to testify and
there Is a general Impression that Jurors
also are apprehensive of the future.

that he had been there, and she was held,
but Judge Redwlne refused to have her as

The antl-Hargls people say Freeman
Is an important witness, and they feel
that he has been hired to remain away

to close the case without Freeman, and
submitted the case fo the commonwealth.

"If the weather of yesterday continues

railway, "the company will certainly have
to get out Its entire equipment to handle
the crowds that will flock to Lake Manawa

about three-fourths of It In operation. At
Courtland beach I look for an unusual
large crowd." These sage remarks of this

Saturday afternoon Argo, the new local
boat on Lake Manawa, won an exciting
finish within a few minutes of the re
quired time necessary for a race. This
wss the holiday race, which was to have
been contested on Decoration day, and
the first official race of the summer.
When Argo crossed the line It was only
sixteen seconds ahead of Manawa, which
had forged ahead In the last two-thirds
of the race after having been seemingly
sailed out of It. Andover and Favorite,
which were the only other boats finishing.
Were entirely out of the race at the close.
The race proved conclusively that Argo
and Manawa are capable of what was ex
pected of them and In a class of their
own, while Andover will continually win
over the other seven boats In her class.
In windward work Manawa proved to be
the better of the two new boats while
Argo was clearly the better boat In run
ning free with sheets loosened. Skipper
McAllister of Argo thinks that with a
heavier wind his yacht will prove a better
sailor than Manawa In windward work.
although there Is some doubt If she bet
ters her relative position much with a
stronger wind.
The starting gun was fired promptly at
4:06 and Argo crossed the line first followed
by Andover, Favorite and Manawa In the
order named. While her lead waa only a
second's she maintained It and gained
somewhat half way around the first time
but after rounding buoy 2 she was con
fronted with windward work and Manawa
and Andover passed her.
A handful of breeze struck her before
they reached buoy 2 and she crept up and
rounded the buoy first with Manawa and
Andover clinging closely to her.
On the second round of the course Argo
maintained the lead and gained heavily
on Manawa and Andover was left in the
ruck. But Manawa caught a recreant
breeze and carried slong with it neared
Argo and forged ahead, rounding buoy 4,
ten seconds ahead. Coming home the two
boats had the wind on their beam end
Argo gained and passed Manawa at the
Kursaal, gaining steadily until she crossed
the line sixteen seconds in the lead. An
dover came In third, leaking quite badly.
The time for the race was: Argo, 1:10:60;
Manawa, 1:11:06; Andover, 1:16:15, and
Favorite, 1:17:23.
