cays the law will attend to the members of
the Virginia Republican Association if they

"Washen GTOif,October31. Civil Service
Commissioner Theo Roosevelt bounded back
to town to-day, and immediately revoked
his recent determination not to talk to the
newspapers by delivering himself of tbe
following: "I have carefully read the pub
lished interview with Governor Thompson
concerning political assessments of depart
mental clerks by the Old Dominion League,
a Virginia Republican club, and I
heartily indorse all he says. I will
guarantee that Governor Thompson is
no more anxious than I am to get at these
men, and the evidence laid before tfs, in my
opinion, fully warrants our presenting the
case to the courts. "We will lay it before the
proper prosecuting officers the instant we
can get in all the testimony. Meanwhile,
as I see that the club bas threatened to send
around a committee to the various depart
ments to-morrow, to collect contributions, I
warn all concerned that we will promptly
prosecute anyone who violates the law in
soliciting, receiving or giving them."
The agents of the Virginia association de
clare that they will be on hand to-morrow
to collect the Virginia contributions from
the office holders, Mr. Roosevelt's threats to
the contrary, notwithstanding.
TOTTING IK DEST MEOWING.
The latest attempt of the Flam crowd to
clear themselves of the charge ot violating
the civil service law is to swear to the inno
cence oi each other and then unite in throw
ing dirt at their prosecutors. Flam himself
goes to Virginia and keeps out of harm's
way, and Godwin, who, it is understood,
endeavors to exonerate himself on the plea
that he knew nothing about the issuing of
the circular, is quoted in the local press as
giving Flam a certificate that he (Elam)
has attended scarcely any meetings of the
How Godwin can know whether Flam
was at the meetings, without being there
himself, and how he could be there himself
without knowing of the existence of the
circular, which everybody else in the con
cern knew all about, and' which bore both
Flam's name and his own, in plain print,
neither he nor any of his friends attempt to
But this sort of exculpation does not
satisfy the parties in interest They need
must make war upon Civil Service Com
missioner Thompson, because, being a Dem
ocrat, they assume that he has been the
instigator and mover of the whole business.
As a matter of fact, Mr. Thompson has kept
his hands off too scrupulously, if he has
erred on either side. He has felt keenly the
delicacy of his position, and though visited
daily by members of the press and others
who have been watching the proceedings,
he has refused to step outside the strict pale
of his duty as an officer of the Government
and give away any of the information in
possession of the commission, or offer any
advice as to outside movements against the
Secretary Noble, who started out with his
investigation in a manner that gave promise
of good results, has been paralyzed by the
lies told in the defendants' behalf. Of
A GENERAL DENIAL
was put in, and he was innocent enough to
accept it, falling back now upon the state
ment that, as the Civil Service Commission
is going to prosecute, he has nothing more
to do in the premises. As the Secretary is
new to public life, he has not yet learned
by sad experience that to leave one's stables
to be cleaned by somebody else is a poor
way to make a record as a reformer
One thing, however, General Noble is
prompt enough to say. He declares that no
person shall make the rounds of his depart
ment to collert political contributions with
out a permit As the permit can be ob
tained only from the chief clerk, and as the
law is broad enough to render that officer
liable to fine and imprisonment if he makes
himself, even in so indirect a way, a party
to the misdemeanor, it looks now as it the
committee charged with the duty of passing
the hat would have to do their work in tbe
open air, as far as the Department of the
Interior is concerned.
WHAT IS PK0HIB1TED.
The Commission Called on to Define In
Rending of the Law.
"WASHlNGTOjf, October 31. Mayor
-homos . Hart, of Boston, recently ad
dressed a communication to the Civil
Service Commission, asking what part the
members of the civil service may properly
take in politics. In reply the Commission
calls Mr. Hart's attention to the regulation
of the President of July 14, 1886 (President
Cleveland's letter to heads oi departments
in the service of the General Government),
and to the subsequent instructions of the
Postmaster General to postmasters and their
employes. The reply continnes:
Beyond prohibition as to political assess
ments, the civil service act ana rules confer no
authority or duty upon tbe commission to inter
fere In the conduct of officeholders. The com
mission has no part in removal;, except where
removal Is made lor t e reasons forbidden by
tbe act. and the system does not Impair the
legitimate and salutorv activity of parties or
abridce the right of officials to vote and freely
express their omnions. As to where
the precise line dividing the proper and improp
er participation cf officeholders and public ser
vants In party politics is to be drawn, must evi
dently be left to tbe discretion of tbe President
and appointing officers.
The commission lias also sent a replv to
the query of a clert in the Hew York post
office, who asked whether a political con
tribution made at the request of the secre
tary of a political committee would be in
violation of law, and whether, if a person
were degraded or dropped from the service
for not making such a contribution, the
commission would investigate the matter.
Tbe commission, in its reply, says:
That the act and rules do not prohibit a con
tribution by an officeholder for politic I pur
.poses, and that tbe commission will Investigate
and report concerning any dismissal or degrada
tion of any person In the civil service, or any
chance in his official rank or compensation, be
cause be has given or withheld or neglected to
make any contribution of money or other valu
able thing for any political purpose.

SE17 MEXICO IN THE UNION.
An Urgent Appeal From the Governor of
the Southern Territory.
"Washington, October 31. Iu Bradford
Prince, the Governor of New Mexico, in his
annual report to the Secretary of the Inte
rior, calls special'attentiou to the subject of
land titles in that Territory. The Governor
reviews the history of Congressional action
in the matter, and states what action on the
question is necessary. Upon the subject of
Statehood the Governor says, in part:
New Mexico was a much older Territory than
either of those admitted; its population largely
exceeded that of Montana or Washington, it
had a special tight to self-government under the
treaty of Guadaloupe Hidalgo; It bad only
failed of admission in 1876 by an accident; its
resources were both greater and more varied,
and its population was better adapted for safe
and conservative self-government tban that of
other sections of the west Tbis refusal to ad
mit be r has forced us to recognise tbat there Is
a prejudice in tbe older States against New
Mexico, which, although based solely on ignor
ance of our condition, yet it is none the less
poweriui ana injurious.
The Governor answers, at some length,
the statement made by persons opposed to
the admission of the Territory, tending to
show that she is not yet prepared for State
hood. He shows that, while the older na
tive population is more or less illiterate,
tbis is not true of a very large proportion of
her people. The ratio of illiteracy, he says,
ha; been reduced 20 per cent during the last
five years. The Governor makes an earnest
plea for the admission of New Mexico into

rSFZCLU. TZ EOS X TO THX DISPATCH.1
"Washington-, October 3L President
Harrison's Board of District Commissioners
has adopted civil service reform with a
vengeance. There are three Com
missionersone a Democrat, one
a Republican, and the other an
army officer, supposed to be without any
politics whatever in his make-up. The
Democrats and the army officer have com
bined against the Republican Commis
sioner, and issued an order announc
ing that hereafter no appointments will be
made for political reasons. This unusual
proceeding is being hailed with joy by tbe
civil service commissioners and their
followers, but not by the rank and file of
the Republicans of the District of Colum
bia who spent their money for the election
of Benjamin Harrison.
Mr. Douglass, the Republican Commis
sioner, while not announcing himself a
spoilsman, emphatically expresses surprise
that his colleagues should find it necessary
to announce in advance what their policy is
to be with regard to appointments. He
bases his objection to the order on this
ground. He says that no such thing was
ever heard of before as a body of Govern
ment officials forestalling their official acts
in the newspapers.

Teleamph Companies A Letter to
Dr. Korvln Green, President of
tho Western Union.
Washington, October 31. Postmaster
General Wanamaker to-day made public an
order fixing the rates for telegraphic service
for the Government Tor the present year.
The order provides that for day messages
not exceeding ten body words, to be sent a
distance not exceeding 400 miles,
the rate shall be 10 cents, and
half cent extra for each word in
excess of ten. For a distance over 400 miles
and less than 1,000 miles the rate shall be
15 cents for the first ten words and three
fourths of a cent for each additional word
in excess after. For a distance over 1,000
miles one-half cent per word shall be added
to the 1,000 mile rate. For night messages
not exceeding 20 words, the rate shall be 15
cents for all distances and one-half cent ex
tra for each word in excess of 20.
A letter from the Postmaster General to
President Green, of the Western Union
Teleeraph Company, was also made public
to-day, in which he says:
I desire to state that I have availed myself ot
all accessible sources of information to ascer
tain the rates and rebates in forco with the
various classes of customers of telegraphic

been of any value to your corporations,
I am impressed with what you say In
opposition to tbe application of Associated
Press rates to Government business, and con
sequently have, for the fiscal year, revised tho
order fixing rates, and issued the same this day
to all the departments of the Government A
copy of tbe order is herewith enclosed. As tbe
reduced rates hereby determined for day mes
sages are practically tbe same as those npon
which one of the divisions or departments of
your company, as well as one of its principal
competitors, transacted business for the public
generally for a considerable time, until absorbed
by your comp-ny, I presume no question can
arise as to the fairness ot these conclusions.
Permit me also to add that while there is no
necessity or Intention to place any burden -upon
your company, yet I am convinced that tho
Government is entitled to very special consid
eration in rates and privileges of telegraphic
service: therefore, for the purpose of determ
ining Government rates in the future I now
formally propose what I have already suegested
and understood you to be willing to approve,
viz.: The appointment nf a commission of five
suitable persons (two by your company, two bv
this department and the fifth by tbe four so
chosen), to inquire and report to tbis depart

cost and proper value of telegraphic service,

The latest improvement in
corsets is neat enough to have
been made by a woman; it is
loops of corset lace instead
of metal eyelets.
Eyelets cut the laces; the
Eyelets rust; the loops
Eyelets make the lacing
show through thin dresses;
the loops don't.
We call the -loops soft eye
lets; but they are tough;
they won't wear out in the
life of a corset.
Soft eyelets are used in the
Ball and Kabo corsets, which
are sold in most of the stores
in this way: you pick out
what you think you want and
wear it two or three weeks;
if not right you return it and
get your money back; and, if
a soft-eyelet corset either
the Ball or the Kabo fails
in a year, in any part butthe
steels, you get your money
