Civil Service for the Philippines (Correspondence of Tlio AsuocUttd Prciw.) Manila, P, !., Sept. 20. THE UN'AOTMKNT .votcnlay l,.v tlir chit cimimLwIon ot "An Act tor the ntablMi. mclit nnd maintenance of nn cfflrlont nnd lionet elvll srrlco In tlm Philippine WnndV ai prepared by Piexldent 'i'att, li.n pleased the Filipino people nnd hai tended to dlploao the nrniy. The latter it an unfortu nate nnd unintentional result. The provisions of thli chll senlec till nre most coniprohen she find complete, comprlxliitr nil the reui. live branches of the BOernment of the Philip pine llnnd, nnd Its perunl tends to show (lint the qualifications of "honest and efficient" In the title, nre real Intention well carried out, and pot mere catch words. The 1)111 is founded upon the principles of American elvlt senlec, carefully adapted to local require ments. Upon recommendation of the secietary of war It has been decided that, other thlnus being equal, preference shall bo bIicii to Fili pinos for civil cmplojinent under (he American Philippine government, and under the provi sions of this bill nn employe, be he nn Ameri cm ii or .1 I'lllplno, may rise, 'It be show nblllty md merit, lo a pood and well paid position In the scnlce. 'Hie linpni lance of an efficient and honest elilt sen Ire to these islands can hardly he over estimated, and if this new service be good and ell'cillie, lis dolnirs will reflect credit upon il organizers und upon Iho American administra tion uf Philippine affairs. To bring aliout this desirable end good men nre needed, nnd It Is the purposi! of (he oigatilzgrs ot this bill to n-al.c the eh II sen Ice attiactbe enough to ilmw the elafS of men wanted. It Is the In tention of the organizers that the Philippine civil sen ice shall not degenerate Into n Held wheieln politicians may find opportunities to settle political obligations. The -.enlcc win be kept fur fnmi the stigma of political pjtionage or that it will be open to political proteges and favorites. The pjluiies of the several classes of employes have not jet been determined, but thee will be ,ni'll paid, nnd It will be pos sible fur a man entering the lower clerkships by efficiency and merit to eventua.iy ucionic hemic of bureaus and pennanent under seire (jrles to important' depaitmeiits. A knowledge of Spanish wilt he an excellent help to an Vineiii'jii in this .servile, although the re qmiement of this knowledge Is left to the illi cit Hon of the civil sen ice board. There win doubtless be established civil xer- vice fo-opeiatlve stores, where members of the en lee may buy provisions, gioeerles and other needs of living to the same Hnanclal advantage (bat (limy ottlcers now buy of the army com-nik-ar.v, and the ciiiuse of time will probably m'i! the construct ion of goietmnent civil ser vile quarters a rolleitlon ot good dwelling hou'.es in some cool suburb convenient to the city, the icntaN of which would he reasonable. Such measures will greatly tend to make the service attractive to tho class of men the ser vice requiies. - o Considerable detail, and the flaming of rules and lobulations fur die tenice, aie left to the dill service board provided for in sec tions I, ', :i and 4 of the act. Miii-h depends upon the ability anil good judgment of this board, the mimbcis of which till positions similar to the civil service commissioners in tiie t'niteil States, and the sclei tlons of the civil commission in Ibis iepcct ate to be commended anil give pioinise of a fulfilment of the high staudaid set by the act. Mr. W. Leon Pepperman, who has long been connected with the civil service at home and who has made :i personal study of the civil service in. lint. lined by (treat ilritain, 1'innee and Hol land in their Eastern colonies, will be on this board, as will bo Mi. 1'., W. Kiggins, of the Washington civil service commission. The third member t hereof will probably be a Fili pino. President Tntt hid selected for this post Ilr. Joaquin flonralcr. a most able man. Hut, this gentleman's untimely death on the eve of his appointment has forced President Taft to mid another native capable of meeting the necessnry requirements. Mr. Kiggins. In view of Ms past experience, wilt probably ai t an chief examiner, and it is probable that Mr. Pepperman will be appointed chairman of the boaid. The compiehensivcness of this new 'ctvUc is set forth in section fl, whirh piovidrs that "thin act shall apply, eveept as hiieinafter provided, to nil appointments of rlvlllaiis to ccciitivc posi tions under: (a), The Militaiy (.ovcinor; (b), the United States Philippine Comms.slon; fc), the Treasurer of the Islands; (d), the Auditor of the Islands; (e), the Collector of Customs for the Islands; (f), the Collector of Inland Rev emit! for the Islands; (g), the Director of Posts for the Islands; (10, the Civil Service Hoard; (I), the nurcau of Forestry; (J), the Bureau of Mines; (k), the (Jeneial Superin tendent of Public Instruction; (1), Wardens of Penitentiaries and Piisons; (in), the Provost Marshal (icneral of Manila; (n), the Captain of the Port of Manila." It is to be noted that school teachers are exempted from the requirements of the civil serv Ice. Section 12 gives the civil service board ample power to dlschaige any employe whom they find to be holding a position in the serv ice in violation of the provisions of the act, or the rules of the board; and section 15 pro vides that religious or political affiliations shall in no nay influence the examination or appointment of applicants. Section IT sets forth that no nillcer or cmplo.vo of the service shall contribute to any political fund, and Section 18 provides for the punishment of all persons making such solicitation, lAamlnatious for admittance to the sen In will be held in Manila, Hollo and Cebu, in the Philippines, and In the United States under the auspices ami contiol of the federal civil service commission, who already possess the requited men nnd machinery to hold these examinations in all of the larger cities. o The enactment of this civil service bill taken away fiom the aiiuy officers a considerable de Kirn of their power in Philippine civil ad ministration. It Is not pleasant for any body of men to be deprived of puwtis (hey have wielded independently, and the army officers do not enjoy their present necessity of ask ing the civil service commission for the ap pointment of all their civilian employes, From the standpoint of the aiiuy, It is inconsistent that General MncAithiir, (he Military Uovernor of eight million Filipinos and the rouunauder of 03,000 Anurican soldleis, nhniild be toiccd to ask- the commission for, the appointment of a ciitom house checker at fifty dollais a month, and the nuny docs not t.ake to the new con ditions with entirely good grace, Such slight sjmptnms uf drawn relation between I lie mill. Wry nnd the civil oliicluls aic, it Is pointed out, bound to arise when two systems of gov. eminent, military and civil, are opeiallng at one and the same time, and, it U added, the only way to prevent their occurrence Is to difir the assumption of power by the civil element until mh lime as the J liny ceases, lilt, authorities at Washington have deiided that the civil commission shall lake over a certain part of the Insular government, and to this end the adinlnUtiatloii ha given the commission explicit uideis and eveiy action tit.cn by the loniinivilon Is nothing more than the can; lug out of the signed Instructions given I hem by Secielaiy Hoot, Speaking of this civil service bill, a piom. Incut 1'ilipluo said to-day; "The bill requires an oath of allegiance fiom the Filipino to the I'ulted Stales government before the former can enter the ilvil service, ml this It as it should be. ,llut, ,vou will find comparatively few Filipinos trady lo lake this tame oath until your aulhoritien con give them adequate protection against the reprisals of their revolutions country men.'' i THE MARKETS.

It has been actively traded in by energetic bull Interests since that (Inn! and n great varlcly nf asser (Ions have been mndc as to the forthcoming benefit! to tho stock. It, was alleged, tor In stance, that the slock would certainly be placed upon a six per cent, basis. Another story bad it that a distribution would bo made ot a large portion of the great surplus In the Pennsylvania treasury. On the other hand the belief lias pre vailed generally that these assertions were ex clusively for stock johblng purposes' nnd that the company would persist In the regular dlvl. dend rate of 2i per cent, setni-nunuiilly which has prevailed ever since 1891. Kcv lowing thesn past conditions, It Is fair In assume that lo day's uctlon wan n disappointment lo romc ol the active bulls In (he stock, while It wns cer tainty an agreeable Mirprlse to the conservative! element of the street. Hut when It Is consid ered that the net earnings ot the Pennsylvania railroad directly operated by It have increased (luring nine months of the jenr mnic tlinn iflklKXV 000 over the corrcspondllng period of last jear, today's rale of distribution seems modeiatc. TI13 extra dividend wilt Involve the disbursement ot a little over $1,1500,000. Tho stock's net giln wns 1't and the trading wns remarkably quiet. There was the considerable show- of strength in Sugar. The advance was attended by rumors that n break in prices of rellned sugars Is Imminent. lluslncKs In the market at laige was too small lo have nny Important cITect on pi Ices, though the niaiket closed with the level somewhat above last night after having been nt one "lime a shade lower. A single lot of of Ioikcs Shore sold Just before the close at 2.30, after having sold .veslerday at 210. Tho closing bid wns quoted at 210',4. Xothing could be learned lo account for this small but urgent demand. The repres sion of speculation is till attributed to the in fluence of what me called the "controlling In terests," The rise In the loan call rate today to ft per cent, may have some bearing on the extreme dulncss of the speculation. Stock 111 ir kct dcinnnds during the week have been extreme ly moderate. Total saoles, S4.1..100 shares. The bond market shared In tho dullness and prices moved irregularly. Totnl sales, par vjlue, $!, 210,000. United Stales bond were unchanged on last call. The following quotations are ftirnishtil The Tribune bv M. S.
