REVISION OF THE CIVIL SERVICE RULES COMPLETED AT LAST. neural f'h»n ff <-. That Will Make Old Sol- clljim Fpel Bolter—An Important Sng- tuition That Wan Not Adopted—Randall'* RletilUcant Remark* — Had a Kathar Toug). Conscience. WASHmnTUN Crrr, Feb. 4. — President Cleveland La. 4 * o[ proved end promulgated tbe new civil service rules which are logo Into effect on tho 1st of March next. The reeon- itfucted ru!m baVe been carefully considered jy the prcsiiltnl and commission for nearly a year. The civil service regulations hare also been revlsoJ to conform , to tha new rulea. The most Important features of th* new rulen are as follows: ' The general rulea are nine In number, and are applicable, except hi one or two partiou- ars, to all parts of th* classified service, and a some parts of the service not yet classified under the law or rules. By those rules It is made an off»nse puniihable by dismissal In any officer of the executive civil service to me his oflloial authority or influence for tbe jurpose of interfering-with an election or controlling th* mulls thereof, or, to dlsmln* or to cause to be dismissed, or to use Influence of any hind to procure the dlsmlmal of any person from any place in said service because luch pernon has refused to b* coerced .in hifl political action, or ha* refused to contribute nonsy for any political purpose, or to render political service. The provisions of tbe civil 'service law hich are Intended to prevent tbe contribution by civil officials to political purposes are about as ironclad aa It Is possible to make ;bem. They prevent the employ* from giving In any way any money to assist a political campaign, and prohibit the nominating or appointing officers from Interfering wltb any employe who refused so to contribute. The new rules specially provide for the thorough enforcement of this part of the law, and provide for tho dismissal of any one violating it. It Is also provided tbat no question In any examination shall be so framed as to elicit the political or religious opinion or affiliation of competitors for place, and that If any appointing or nominating officer shall make inquiry concerning, or" in any other way attempt to ascertain, the politics or £flUon of any perxon who bas passed exam^^Kn, or who sball discriminate in favor of S)bg«iu»t such person shall be dismissed from office. By the general rules several non-competitive examinations are provided for, and compulsory oxaininatinn-i for promotion are directed. Tho compulsory examination provision us suggested by the commission was amended by the pros! tent, whojidded the following words: "But persons iilvthe classified service who were honorably discharged from the military or naval service of the United States, and the widows and orphan* of deceased soldiers and sailors, shall bo exempt from such examination." Another important feature of tbe general rules gives authority to an appointing or nominating officer, to whom the commissioners may send the names of persona declared by them to be eligible to a certain place, to object In writing to all or any one of tho persons thus certified, stating that for reasons to be. particularly specified such parsons, or any ot them, are not capable of performing the dutle* of the vacant place, and the commissioners are directed to make certification of other name* if tha objections are ascertained to be good and well founded. The general rules also provide tbat soldiers and Bailors who have been honorably discharged because of sickness or wounds shall be certified for appointment In preference to other persons of higher' grade In the examination, and that In making any reduction of force in any branch of the classified service honorably discharged soldiers and sailors, and also the widows and orphans of deceased soldiers and sailors,, shall be retained In preference to othera Tbe department rules authorize tbe classification of commissions and Independent bureaus, as well as tbe department* a* Washington, and proscribe the examination that most be provided to test fitness for admission to tbls branch of tb* scrvica. The maximum age limitation of 45 years Is abrogated, and the minimum limitation I* raised from 18 to 20 years. Soldiers and sail-! onf who have a claim of preference In civil appointments are let In at (SB per contnm, but In all other ease*, tbe, minimum grade ol eligibility ha* been raised from 65 to 70 p-r centum. The number of name* to be certified to an appointing officer from which to select for an appointment has been reduced from (our to three. One Important addition to the rule* now In force, Indorsed" by Messrs. Oberly and Lyman, reads a* fallowai "Whenever, a dismissal from the wxecuttve civil service Is mad*, a written statement ol tb* cause ol to* dismissal must! be filed in the department «r office from which the dismissal la made, and become part of the record m such department' or office." Commissioner Edgerton opposed tbe adoption of this rule, and In this be .wassupported by President'Cleve- land, and It was there tors excluded from the new rules. • ' KNEW IT ALL THE TIME. A "Loyal Cltlaen" A«W« to tbe Etnbamu*- tu«nt of the Surplus. WASHINGTON Crrr, Feb. 4—Tb* secretary of tha treasury has received a letter dated Fitcb.burg, Msas,, enclosing a 25 cent silver piece, to be placed to the credit of tbe conscience fun I.

There wilt be no legislation in .this oongnws which will destroy or injure any American Industry. There Is a majority In he Democratic party who would like to do some of these things, but it is not in their »wer to do It; not oven in tho house of representatives." What Wa» Done Is the BOOM.

PLAYED THE DEVIL'S TATTOO. Ike Wetr'i Latest Achievement— His Wif» Knllvons the Show. DULUTH, Minn., Feb. 4.— Weir, the "Belfast Spider, * and Qeorge Biddons, of Illinois, met here Friday night to fight fifteen rounds for 75 and £0 per cent of tba gat* money. John Donaldson; of Minneapolis, was reftrse. The fight was a foregone conclusion. Weir followed his familiar tactics — lunging with bis right) bis left, his bead and shoulders, and occasionally his logs, and playing a devil'i tattoo on Siddon's ribs, or raining blows on his face at will. Nevertheless Bid- dons was remarkably clever in dodging, and occasionally surprised tbe invincible by a home thrust. Mrs. Weir Was present on the stage, and enlivened the proceedings with her piercing screams whenever her dear hus band got a thump, until Mayor Butphin, who was bossing thugs In a general way, told her to shut up or he would put her off the stage. The first six rounds Biddons held his own pretty well, the honors being barely m favor of "the Spider," but after tbat Biddons became groggy, bis legs unsteady and his antagonist bit him where bo pleased. In the eleventh round Biddons got his coup, being brought to bis knees -with a blow that broke his jaw."~ He claimed a foul that was not al lowed, and then protesting tbat be bad been fouled and that be couldn't "fight no man like that" be retired, and "the Spider" took tbe" victory and tbe bulk of the cash.

BLOODY RIOT IN THE COAU STRIKE REGION AT LAST. Pa., Feb. 4.—The scenes nacted here during the long strike ot 1873, when Mollie Maguireism waa running ram- lant and a reign of terror prevailed throughput the region, were eclipsed Friday evening iy a riot between tho strlbing minors and he coal and Iron police, in which five men were shot and two ot the officers severely »aten. Wben the present strike began no» xxly thought the miners Eould be exasper- ited to the extent ot transgressing the law, and It was to thoir credit that up to Friday^ here bad been no violence of any kind. The Philadelphia & Reading Coal and Iron company made an effort Iburnday to start \rar ot their collieries hero, and succeeded In getting them In operation with a small force >f bands at each. Thursday evening, when be men and boys returned wore on their way lome they bad to run the gauntlet of groups of strikers, who burled the offensive epithet of "scab* and occasionally threw a more deadly missile at their beads. The men were ruardedbya small force of coal and Iron jollcdtuen, which alone protected* them from violence. Friday evening the performance was re- Mated, but with more serious; consequence*; Shortly before 0 o'clock a crowd of strikers, chiefly Polanders and Hungarians, were seen [olng In the direction of the Bhenandoah Valley colliery. Tbey distributed themwlves along tba main road, a few small detach- nonta taking up positions on the by-roads. When tbe men quit work and left the breaker Officers P. C. Krelger, Jacob H. Bbane, 2. H. Mercer and Oeorg* Deibert started nto town with them. They bad proceeded tat a short distance when they encountered :he crowds, and the booting again began. The officers paid no attention to them until a volley of apowballs, pieces of Ice and chunk* of coal wont flying Into their ranks. Then Officer Krelger made a rush for one of tbe strikers who bad thrown a mlmila. He captured his man and proceeded 'perhaps 100 yards with the prisoner when the mob of maddened Pplesjnada a ruth upon htm and attempted a rescue. The other officers went quickly to bis assistance and a desperate fight followed. The officers w«re armed wltb pistols, which they used freely on the heads of the mob, who wielded clubs pulled from a picket fence close by.. Wben the officers saw they were abjut to be overpowered by the mob they called upon the citizens present for assistance, 'and two young men, John Gather and Michael Hawton, ,-weat to them. Each moment the mob appeared to become more frenzied, and at last, closing In upon the officers, knocked Mercer and Deibert down and belabored them with the club*. Tbe officers fought desperately, however, and regaining their feet, fired. Three or four shots were fired In as many seconds, and the mob and the crowd of 400 or 600 spectator* present fled in all directions. Only one of tbe Poles was seen with a revolver, but the police declaim having fired more than two shots. Officer Krelger clung to hi* prisoner throughout the battle, and when the crowd dispersed marched to tbe office of 'Squire Shoemaker without waiting to see who was shot. The wounded are: Michael Hewton, aged 28, shot In the face; the ball entered just above ' the mouth, tearing away three of his teeth and becoming Imbedded In the back part of his head; John Gather, aged 24, shot In tbe arm; Felix Seymansky, a Pole, shot in tho head, the ball entering back of right «*r( Seymansky walked away from the seene of the riot, bnt has not since been seen. The other wounded men are also Polos, but their names can not be obtained nor can the extent of their In juries be learned. Immediately aftor tba shooting Jamoa Shields, a Potterllle police officer, who was among tbe spectators, and wbo did not even 'respond to the call of tbe officer* for assistance, went up to Officer* Mercer and Deibert and arrested them. Tbey offered no resistance, bfit went with him to the office ol 'Squire Monahan, where be preferred charges against them. , The two magistrate* offices are on Bast Centre street, a square and a half apart. That whole space was densely packed with people, a large portion 'Polish, who were wild with passlou. Tbey surrounded both offices, yelling for the officers and saying "Lynch, them," "kill them," etc. ' Suddenly a stone'was thrown at Squire Shoemaker's window. ' In a minute tbe froats of both of- Soe* were riddled with stones, and'tbelr inmate* bad a tough scram big (for safety. Bom* bruised bodies resulted, but no «erlou* damage was done except to the offices, which are wrecked, > The town;., wa* in a perfect uproar. Men were mad .wltb passion and drink, and m one appeared to have the power to qnel them. Tbe borough authorities were powerless, and no one can say how the mob's fury may yet vent itielf. , Capt Christian will mass bis whole force of coal and Iron men here together with Capt. Linden's Finkurton men. (Sheriff Luffy swore iu-tbe three fire companies of tbe town as pone commitatus preparatory for trouble. The borough conn cD also held a special session and basin struoted Chief Burgess Beohtn to swear In special offloirs for an emergency. ' John Durgin, assistant foreman at Kohi- noor collieries, waa shot at Friday evening by a Bolander, but escaped Injury. Els an sallant was arrested. Thomas Ryan, of William Pdnn, b abjo under arrest for participation in the riot there. He was sent to Pottovllls JalL At midnight th* mob had dispersed, anc everything wa* quiet. No further trouble was apprehended for. the present. Accepted a 1O Per Cent. Beduotloa. TBOT, N.

My«rm Chnrgnd TVlth B'lns; the rhlvf Tallr-Bhe«t Conspirator. O., Feb. 4.— Algernon Grnn- vllle was placutl on the witness stand Frl- ay morning In the tally-meet forgery trial, and although Ins testimony was Interrupted by hjeclion to its admission, followed by arguments that consumed the entire day. It was be most startling that has been given so far n tbe trial Granvllle Is tbe man who 'aims that he helped do the forgery, and las turned states evidence. He naid on tbe tand that he was flrst approached and talked to about altering the tally- ibeets by Allen O, Myers, in lobert Montgomery's law office; that ilyers explained to him that It was necena- ry to secure one more member of the legls> ature In order to elect Jo~bn R McLean, of The Cincinnati Enquirer, to the United States senate to succeed Senator Sherman, and that It was thought Franklin county was tbe place to do It They hod determined o make It appear that Edward Younp, who lad been defeated, was elected, Robert Montgomery also cams to him and said "the •ork must be done." Witness agreed to do t, and met by agreement Myers, and Robert and C. R Montgomery, at tbe letter's office, on the'ThurnJay night after tbe October election in 1885, to experiment on tally -sheets with acids and Inks. It was developed that iho forgery on the sheet from the Ninth ward, which was recently discovered, was the result of the experimenting on It, that night Counsel for the defense here raised ob- lectlon to this testimony on the ground that it was bringing In a separate and distinct :rimo, for which tbe defendant, Robert Montgomery, Is not Indicted. Counsel argued on this point all the remainder ot the day, and tho court reserved Its decision. A KNIFE IN THE RATES. Tbe C., M. A St. P. 8tnrt» n«0 P«r Cent. Cnt —nnlldtns; tip California. CHICAGO, Feb. *.—The 8t Paul railroad on Friday issued a new lurid reducing rates on all classes of freight from Chicago to the Missouri river about 40 per cent. Chairman Mldgely, of the Southwestern Railroad association, at once issued a notice authorizing all lines to meet the new rates, and before the day was over nearly evory road was quoting tho reduced rates. The belief among railroad people Is that there is to be R long and desperate fight, which will ultimately Involve the entire northwest If California does not show up well in the next census it will not be the fault of the railways, as with their cheap excursions they have taken thousands of people to that state. The latest announcement Is that of tbe last excursion via tbe Missouri Pacific and the Iron Mountain, from Kansas City and St. Louis respectively. The tickets are good for six months nud the dates of start are Feb. IS for tbe Iron Mountain and Feb. 17 for the Missouri Pacific. Judge Oresfaam entered a final decree of foreclosure) ot the Illinois division of tbe Central Iowa Railway company Friday. The decree finds that thoro Is due on the mortgage to tbe Central Trust company, of New York, $1,70S,950,81, and that tbe amount shall be paid in ten days. In default the road shall be sold In Chicago, March 17. Thoro Is a little friction between tbe Illinois Central and Chicago & Eastern Illinois over the proposed parallel roads of them companies from Tuscola to St. Louis. Both have surveyed routoa, and In some places the lines are only a few feet apart The Chicago &'Alton Is arranging to put On limited train service between Chicago and Bt Louis, making the run in seven and a half hours. COY AND BERNHAMER DOOMED. Befnued Relief br Jadgjes Greahnm and Woods, and Sentenced. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind, Feb. 4."-There was a large BU lience In Judge Woods' court-room Friday to hear the result of the motion for a new trial In tbe Coy cose. The defense submitted their affidavits and made' thoi. argu< mento, tbe prosecution replying. Judge Woods, then, after reviewing the case, said tbe guilt of the prisoners bad been proved beyond a doubt, and there was no reason to disturb tbe verdict He then fixed Bernharaor'i punishment at one year in state's prison and $1,000 fine, and Coy's at eighteen months In prison and f 100 fine. He then said that tbe prisoners could remain out of jail in charge of the marshal, who would be responsible for their safekeeping, until Monday, to give them an opportunity to apply to the appellate court. Judge Qresham at Chicago Friday refused to. grant a writ of error and supersedes in the care, so .if they do not secure tbe i ntervention ot some other court they will have to stand the sentence. It was asserted that an application would be made to the supreme court ot the United State*.... f Protenllng As;alnst 9-Ont Fans.
