Burleson Announces Nasbys of
First, Second and Third
Class to Undergo Tests.
Washington, March 7. Postmaster
General Burleson announced today,
that after April 1, the appointment of
all postmasters of the first, second and
third class would be subject to com
petitive examinations. Nominations
will be sent to the senate as in the
past, but in making selections the
president will be guided by the re
sults of examinations and will send in
the names at the head of the lists.
Whether the civil service commis
sion, under which fourth class post
masters are now named, will conduct
the examinations, has not been deter
mined. The president's forthcoming order
will provide for a form of modified
civil service classification under which
all vacancies, whether caused by resig
nation, removal or death, will be filled
by competitive examination.
Can Serve Out Tetmi.
Those already in the service will
continue without examination until
the expiration of four years' term, be
ginning with their last appointment,
and will then, it is understood, have
to undergo the competitive test.
A hornet's nest was stirred up by
the announcement at the capitoI,
where scores of members were in
their offices preparing to lea for
home. The order was roundly de
nounced because some of the demo
cratic leaders and several members
construed it as a move to get com
bined democratic and republican sup
port in a politically uncertain house.
Democratic Leader Kitchin of the
house delayed his departure for North
Carolina to go to the Postoffice de
partment to register his protest.
Southern Member Talks.
Other congressmen, who visited Mr.
Burleson, went on the latter's invita
tion, to discuss the new plan of sys
tematizing postal accounting by es
tablishing central auditing postoffices
in county or district groups. This
subject was overwhelmed, however,
when the news of the civil service
order was broken.
One southern member asked if the
postmaster general had called them
there to ask their views or to tell
them what had been done.
"I am telling you what is going to
happen," he replied. The postmaster
general is quoted as having told them
that it was too late to protest as the
order had been determined upon and
would be carried out He intimated
that he was not the author of it, but
that it was a measure of efficiency and
Blow to Democrats.
Another member suggested that the
order would put many republicans in
office, as many of the more active as
sistant postmasters are republicans re
tained by the democratic postmasters
and still another wanted to know what
would happen if the one man certified
from the examinations were a negro.
The postmaster general, according to
those present, replied the examination
would have to take place and there
wculd be "special privileges to no
A western democrat asked why the
order, if issued at all, should not pro
vide for notifying the three highest
in the examination as eleigible to
postmasterships, as was done when
the fourth class postmasters were
blanketed into civil service. The post
master general said congress had the
opportunity of legislating to that ef
fect, but did not do so.
Some members complained that the
order would take out of political life
some of the most active supporters of
the representatives in congress.
A majority of the republicans joined
with democrats recently in rejecting a
proposition for putting all postmast
ers under the civil service, when an
amendment to that effect was offered
to an appropriation bill in the house,
although Republican Leader Mann
;.id a few others favored it.
Goes to Jail Cell
As Result of Trying
"To Square Things"
J. M. Aaldrup, merchant at Water
town, S. D., is in the city jail, fol
lowing his attempt to square things
with E. A. Brennan of Friend, Neb.,
who was strongarmed and robbed of
$20 in cash, a gold watch, valued at
$jO and two travelers checks, each
for $50, by two men with whom he
was returning Tuesday morning from
an exclusive roadhouse in North
All day Wednesday Brennan, in
company with several detectives,
trailed the men. When Brennan ar
rived at the Paxton hotel for supper,
he was handed a note signed by
Aaldrup which said that he had re
covered his valuables and money and
would return it to him at 9 o'clock.
Aaldrup showed up as promised and
was immediately taken in custody by'
Detectives Brinkman and Unger.
He would not admit what his con
nection was with the men, but police
believe that he is trying to shield the
woman in the case. Police have the
names of the two men. Both, they say,
have police records.
