Male Stenographers and Typewriters In Demand
The United States Civil Service Commission announces that while it has no difficulty in securing sufficient female stenographers and typewriters to meet the needs of the departments at Washington, the supply of male eligibles is not yet equal to the demand. Young men who are at least 18 years of age and who are willing to accept the usual entrance salaries, which are $840 and $900 a year, have excellent opportunities for appointment. While the entrance salaries are low, advancement is reasonably rapid to those meriting it. The examinations, which any competent stenographer should be able to pass, are held each month in the year, except December, at the principle cities of the United States.

Full information in regard to the examination may be secured by addressing the United States Civil Service Commission, Washington D. C.; or the District Secretary, Post Office, Boston, Mass., Philadelphia, Pa., Atlanta, Ga., Cincinnati, Ohio, Chicago, Ill., St. Paul, Minn., Seattle, Wash., San Francisco, Cal., Customhouse, New York, New Orleans, or Old Customhouse, St. Louis, Mo.

BARNES’ LIBEL SUIT.

Anti-Saloon League Superintendent Issues Statement Explaining What He Says He Said.

The summons and complaint in the libel suit of William Barnes against William H. Anderson of New York state superintendent of the Anti-saloon league, was served on Mr. Anderson Monday. Immediately thereafter the superintendent, who has been mentioned in several of the statements of Mr. Barnes concerning “bosses” and other political adjuncts, issued a statement in part as follows:

“The statement by Mr. Barnes that I asked him to pass the optional local prohibition bill is absolutely untrue. I asked him to permit the representatives of his own Albany county organization who were in a position of commanding influence in the assembly to help the speaker out of a hole by permitting a vote on the merits of the bill as if proved by the entire correspondence, including that with the speaker himself. Of course, if Mr. Barnes admits that giving the bill a fair chance would have been equivalent to passing it, that is highly interesting. The statement that I charged him with doing or asked him to do anything unlawful is equally untrue.”
