Be Reinstated An Effort to Break
Up the Practice of Assessing Ofliee
Washington, Am;. 29.
BEFORE leaving Washington to
day to investigate charges
ngainst the postmaster at Lin
caster. Civil Srvice Commis
sioner Roosevelt expressed somo char
acteristically vigorous viowg respect
ing tbe work of tbe commission, the
practices pursued in tho departments
and the construction of the laws relat
ing to tbe commission. After riving
credit to Senators Cockndl anlLnlge.
for securing the provision in tha ap
propriation bill which gives to the com
mission the right to select its own
clerks, which the house struck out of
the bill, Mr. Roosevelt said :
'I want to call attention to the By
nnm bill in the lionsi to reinstate ths
Democratic railway clerks who were
turned out prior to the classification of
tbe railway mail service in 1S89
It is a thoroughly vicious partisan
measure, and I cannot but express
my astonishment and r-gret that not
one single D moernt in the house votad
against it. If it should become a law
it would be a precedent for the enact
ment of similar measures whenever u
change of administration took placi.
It is introduced purely in the interests
of the spoils mongor, and is a thor
oughly vicious bill in every way.
solicitation is illegal.
"Then there is something else," he
went on. "The recent decision of the
attorney general, which permits solici
tation for political purposes by letter
in government buildings. If this opin
ion holds the commission must imme
diately request the passags of a law to
prohibit such solioiution. The com
mission has always insisted that solici
tation for political purposes was il
legal, whether doue iu person or by
letter in a government building.
It was owiug to this interpretation
that we weru able to very nearly break
up tbe practice during the last presi
dential campaign, and as the after
math of that campaign we have pro
cured the conviction of two govern
ment officials, one a postmastor in Ohio
and the other a deputv internal reve
nue officer of Kentucky, but we have
never bad a case tried in the courts,
where the accusation was that tbe so
licitation was by letter.
"Nina-tenths of the good done by the
law will vanish if solicitation by letter
is allowed, und although tho commis
sion will, of course, do all it ean to
protect employes if they are molested
in any way for refusing to contribute,
it is imperative that we sbonld be given
power to prosecute any attempt at po
litical assessment In a government
building, either by letter or otherwise.
"Tbe commission sincerely hop?s
that there will be a great extension of
the classified service, and tliBl the
number of positions now excepted from
examination will be tmtoriaily re
duced, both in tbe departments and in
tbe postoffices and custom houses
throughout the country. A great
many placss are excepted from examin
ation on the theory that they must be
filled by people having confidential re
lations to tbe head of tho department
or that they rsquire special qualifica
tions not to be tested by examination.
This is the theory. In practice thes
excepted positions are filled almost
wholly on political grounds and are
filled as a rule with men much inferior
to those whom we get through our
comptitive examinations,
Tney are places better remunerated
than others in the same ofliee, and by
the filling of these in this way a pre
mium is put upon pernicious partisan
activity, as against a faithful perform
ance of their work by clerks actually
in tbe service. Moreover, the exiHtense
of these places is a constant temptation
to officials to change the titles of them
go as to make them excepted. Several
striking illustrations of this hare oc
curred in the treasury department,

Washington, Aug. 29. The Post
this morning says: Ueneial L. L. Mich

day and told that gentleman that many

Raising his band as if to ward off an

Michener tbat th great majority of
the R-publican parlv desired his re
nomination. But General Harrison
again disclaimed any ambition in that
direction and substantially repeated his
former protest against any further de
sire for Presidential honors.
General Minhener says that 90 per
cent, of tho Indiana Republicans are
loyal to Harrison and would work en
thusiastically for bis renomination. He
does not regard tbe defeat of the Re
publican ticket two years ago as any
retl ction uron the candidate. Tho

Washington, Aug. 29. The second
of a eerie of circulars of information
prepared by the bureau of auiinal in
dustry bas been published by tbe de
partment of iigrumltfire. It ia a dis
cussion nf wheat ns a food for growing
and fattening animals
Dr. Salmon, ehief of the bureau says:
"During the past year there have been
numerous inquiries in regard to the
chemical' composition of wheat as corn
pared with corn and oats, its relative
value ai a food for growing and fatton
ing animals, and the method of feeding
whioh would produce tbe best results.
These inquiries have, doubtless, been
snegested by tbe groat change in the
comparative prices of tbe grains just
As a result of the experiments raado,
ami showu in tables givn in the circu
lar, it is stated that "equal parts, of
wheat and corn should, therefore,
prove better for fatteuing animals than
ither of those trains alone. For
growing animals corn is plainly not
so suitablo as is wheat or oats, When
wheat and orn are the same prleu per
bushel, it U preferable to feed wheat
and sell corn. The best way in which
to fend wheat is to roll or grind it into
coarse meal. It may then be fed alone
or mixed with corn meil or ground
oats. It should when possible be mixed
with some other grain, and csre should
he taken to proven t any one animal
from getting more than the quantity
intended for it."
Respecting the chemical and econ
omical features of the grain, Dr. Sal
mon says; "Tho information derived
from the tables should be used in con
nection with onr knowledge of the
bablts of animals and the practical re
sult of feeding. We should not care to
assert, for instance, that wheat screen
ings are in general more valuable ns a
food for animals than thnplnmp, sound
wheat, although the table would indi
cate this to be the case. We may, how
ever, safely conclude that the screen
ings and imperfect wheat should be fed
