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

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-

Such measures will greatly tend to make the
service attractive to tho class of men the ser
vice requiies. -
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

with the civil service at home and who has

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

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

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.
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 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.''
Wall Street Review.
Xcvv Yot,k, Nov. I. A striking evidence ol the
conslialnl upon width speculation iw given by
the action of tho market today on the announce
mcnl of the dcclirntlon of an extra dividend ot
1 per cent, on Pennsylvania railroad Mock. Pre
xlous lo the announeinicnt the stocks bad been
lifted n point and then rencted. When the news
was bulletined there Was a spasmodic rise In the
stock to 1301,4 but only one sale was made at
that price, niter u tilth It fell back, Knrlv In
October Pennsylvania sold, below US. 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.
