Tlie application of H. C. Smith, a removed
colored Democratic officeholder, is unique.
He asks the Civil Service Commission to
reinstate him aud punish the head of the
bureau who removed him. Ho such case

tSTXCIAL TKLXGRAU TO THX DISrATCTI.l
"Washington, July 23. H. C. Smith,
the colored Democratic lawyer who was re
cently removed from the office of the Sixth
Auditor, announces that it is his intention
to contest the nzht of the auditor to remove
Mm. Jvlr. Smith's point is that the re
moval is in violation of the civil service act,
because it was avowedly made for political
It has generally been assumed that the
civil service act confers no authority upon
the Commissioners to restrict removals from
office, and that it only gives them jurisdic
tion over appointments. There is one sec
tion in the law, however, upon which it is
understood that Sir. Smith hopes to be able
to base this claim. This is section 13 of the
civil service act, which reads as follows:
Ho officer or employe ol the United States
mentioned in this act shall discharge, or pro
mote, or aid, or in any manner change the offi
cial rank or compensation ot any other officer
or employe, or promise or threaten so to do,
for citing or withholding or neglectiug to
make any contribution of money 01 other valu
Dle thing for any political purpose.
A HEAVY PENALTY ATTACHED.
Mr. Smith claims that the penalty for the
violation ot this provision is set forth in sec
tion 15, which ib the last of the original act,
and which reads as follows:
Any person who shall be guilty of violating
anj urovisioa ot the foregolug section will no
deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, ana shall, on
conviction thereof, be pnnisbed by a fine not
exceeding So. 000. or by imprisonment for a term
not exceeding three ears, or b such line and
imprisonment, both at the discretion of the
There is only one other provision in the
civil service act that could be construed to
refer to removals lrom office, or be a restric
tion in any way upon the appointing power
under this" law. That is a clause in section
7, whicn is as follows:
But nothing herein contained shall be con
strued to talc from those honorably discharged
from the military or naval i-ervice, any prefer
ence conferred by the 1,754th section of the
Revised Statutes, nor to take from the Presi
dent any authority not inconsistent with this
act conferred by the 1,753d section of said
SMITH SOT A VETERAN.
These sections of the Revised Statutes
provide that in making appointments, other
things being equal, prelerence shall be
given to honorably discharged soldiers and
sailors of the United States. Mr. Smith
cannot take any advantage of these restric
tions upon the appointing or removal power,
for it is not claimed that he was in the
United States service during the war.
If Mr. Smith can make good his claim
that his cas is a violation ot statute 13, it
would seem that a good manv beads of the
department and bureau officers might be
accused of violating the law because of the
reductions which have been made in the
service since the 4th of March, or especially
since the beginniug of the fiscal year.
The charge has been made that Repub
lican Congressmen have made it their busi
ness to hunt out the Democratic appointees
in their districts, and to hint to bureau offi
cers that it would be well to reduce their
salaries if it was inexpedient to remove
them. The theory has been that they could
thus force the Democratic clerks to resign,
or make vacancies in the higher grades for
DETAILS OF THE CASE.
The circumstances in the case of H. C.
Smith arc these: Smith was examined by
the Civil Service Commission at Nashville,
Tenn.. March 7, 1884. He passed the ex
amination with the rating necessary to place
him on the eligible list, and on July 22,
1884, was appointed a clerk of class 1, in
the office of the Sixth Auditor of the Treas
ury. He came into the cublic service under
the Arthur administration, served out the
Cleveland administration, and has remained
in office about four months under President
Harrison. He was dismissed from the ser
vice by the following note:
July 12, 18S9.
To II. C Smith, Esq.:
I respectfully ask your resignation, to take ef
fect Monday, July 15, lbsa,
T. B. Coulter, Auditor.
Smith's account of what followed the re
ception of this note is this: He went to
Auditor Coulter and asked the reason for
the request, and particularly desired to
know whether any charges had been filed
against him on account of his character. He
was informed that there were none, and
Anditor Coulter voluntarily added the fol

Wo want your place. You see, the old sol
diers are clamoring for plates, and w e cannot
Iiut them off any longer.so yon had better hand
n your resignation, to take effect July 15.
Smith then resigned, dating his resigna
tion, however, to take effect Angust 1. This
is the indictment which he expects to bring
ngainst the Sixth Auditor before the Civil
Service Commission. He insists that his
removal is solely due to the fact that he is a

"We shall not have anything to savabout
this case until it comes before us," said Mr.
Lyman, Chairman of the Civil Service
Commission; "but," he added, "it the state
ments contained in the public press are

of the commission to inquire into cases of
removals from office. It has been as much
as the commission could well attend to. to
(; see that the civil service act was strict! v ob
served in appointments. There are specified
cases under the law where it is made the
duty of the commission to take jurisdiction
in the matter of removals. It remains to be
seen whether the case of Smith is one. He
seems to make his claim under section 13
only, as he was manifestly not a soldier.
There have been hundreds of applications
to the commission to interfere iu the matter
of removals, but there has not generally
been any offer of substantial proof to show
that the'law has been violated. Once, in a
Cincinnati case, the commission wrote n
letter to the Chairman of the Local Board
of Examiners in rsfercnce'V) a state of facts
similar to that alleged to exist in this case."
MAY NOT TBESS THE CASE.
President Lyman did not wish to make
anv further reference to this letter and de
clined to make it public, saying: "It is not
,. certain that Smith will prca? the case, for it
p now appears that he did not wait to be re
moved, but compiled witn tne request to
tender his resignation."
The exception in the civil service rules
under which the appointment oi a confi-
, dential clerk is permitted without examina
tion has been carried to a great extreme.
This provision may be used to successfully
rfe evade the civil service act, and to place in
fr, the highest grade clerks who 'have not
;v"l :n examination. An instance o
this sort has just occurred in the Treasury
Department, in the bureau of the newly ap
poinled First Controller, Mr. Matthews.
An $1,800 clerk in this office applied to be
appointed chief of a division. His applica
tion was supported by a long list of in
fluential Republican names, and was favor
ably received. Unfortunately for the ap
plicant, there was an old clerk near to the
First Controller who
HAD A LONG MEMORY.
An examination of the records of the office
showed that the clerk making the applica
tion had, at the beginning ot the Cleveland
administration, a similar petition signed by
This applicant was not promoted, but he
was not discharged. He was reduced, how
ever, from a salary of $1,800 to a $1,600
grade. The clerk holding the $1,600 position
was reduced to the 51,400 class. This re
duction, it is asserted, took effect all down
the list of the classified service in that
bureau, until a S1,0C0 clerk was reduced to
$900. The one below him is believed to have
been dropped from the service, thus creating
a vacancy in the line. Then the new con
fidential clerk of the First Controller was
appointed to the 51,800 vacancy thus created,
without having passed the civil service ex
IHE liOKMONS A BONE
Over Which the Idaho Convention Divides
Boise City, July 23. The convention
yesterday agreed to limit the State indebt
edness to one and one-half percentum of
assessed value of property. Towns and
cities are not permitted to incur indebted
ness above revenue, but co-operate with
capital in making improvements. Some
days ago the Committee on Elections and
Suffrages made a majority and minority re
port; the former by the Republicans and
the latter by the Democrats. The majority
would prevent the vote of the Mormons while
it would also allow the Legislature to make
other limits and terms for preventing the
vote of persons holding higher allegiance to
organizations they deem above that of the
State and the United States Government,
The minority report is so framed as to cut
off legislation and in the eyes of anti-Mormons
leaves a loophole through which the
Mormons may crawl and secure the control
of the polttical power. A proposition to
take these reports up in Committee of the
"Whole caused some filibustering which
blocked all business for some time. The
matter was finally settled by an agreement
to consider these reports Thursday. Hun
dreds of Mormons withdrew last fall to
evade the test oath and vote, and this makes
the anti-Mormons anxious to give the Leg
islature the power to make new limits and
restrictions that the Mormon Church, now
colonizing a portion ol Idaho, may not par
ticipate in politics. This question has
caused the chief trouble during the conven
tion. K0 BLUE LAWS FOE HIS HONOR.
Ico Cream BIny be Sold With Impunity In
Cincinnati on Sandfly.
Cincinnati, July 23. "When George
Mutb, confectioner, was bronght before
Judge Ormsten of the Police Court to-day
for selling ice cream last Sunday he pleaded
guilty. The prosecutor suggested that the
court regard that plea as a demurrer and the
court accepted the suggestion.
His Honor then went on to say that the
use of ice cream had grown to such an ex
tent that it was no longer to be classed as a
luxury, and in the liberal view the court
was inclined to take of the statute its sale
on Sunday could easily be regarded as a
necessity. "Certainly," said his Honor,
"no man was ever incited by eating of ice
cream to go home, beat his wife and break
up the furniture, and I have no sympathy
with the effort ot saloon men to make the
lfw against them odious -by pushing the
enforcement of the common labor law." Mr.
Muth was dismissed.

She Hain't Accepted tho Invitation to Onr
Maritime Conference, and Others Are

She Will Do.
"Washington, July 23. Mr. "Wharton,
acting Secretary of State, said to an Associ
ated Press reporter to-day, speaking of the
statement made in the House of Commons
yesterday by Sir James Ferguson, parlia
mentary secretary for the foreign office, that
no agreement ha yet been made with the
American Government for the programme
of the maritime conference to be held in
"Washington, October 16 next, that it re
ferred only to the routine of the conference.
England has accepted the invitation ot the
United States to participate in the
conference, Mr. "Wharton said, with the
proviso that the programme of subjects to
be discussed was satisfactory. This pro
gramme has been drawn up by the com
missioners of the United States, headed by
Admiral Franklin, and submitted to the
English Government. No answer has yet
been received. The programme covers a
great many subjects under the general head
of navigation of vessels, for the regulation
of which the conference was called. It can
be modified and probably will be, as itis
largely suggestive in character. There is
no reason to suppose, Mr. "Wharton says,
that England will not take part in the con
ference. Several smaller nations, however,
have not yet accepted the invitation to send
commissioners, and are probably waiting
until England takes final action in the

It Night Have Been Worse.
Not long since, Mr. Charles M. Eicbenlaub,
an Allegheny centleman, who lives at 189 Fed
eral street, was made to fully realize the faet
that the aches and pains he experienced in
different parts ot bis body were not without a
cause. The high-colored urine, pain across the
small of his back and kidneys, together with
other unmistakable signs, warned him that-his
condition was fast approaching Bright's dis
ease. The sharp, burning pain in his feet gave
him untold misery. In fact, bis disease grew
from bad to worse, until he was nnable to walk
or step on his feet without experiencing great
pain. He also frequently felt pain under his
shoulder blades and different parts of his
body. He lost his appetite, and he
felt a full, bloated feeling after
meals. As the littlo food he ate fermented in
bis stomach he had much eructation of gas.
After takicg six weeks' treatment at
THE POLYPATHIC MEDICAL INSTI
TUTE, at 420 Fenn avenue, Ms aches
and pains all left him. his appetite
came back to him. bis stomach performs its
function properly, and he feels well and hearty
and is able to attend to his business every
day. He further states: "It gives me pleasure
