TELEGRAPH CLERKS AND THE ROYAL COMMISSION. One of the largest and most enthusiastic meet- ings cf Post-offica telegraphists ever held in Liver- pool took place on Saturday evening, when grent satisfaction was expressed at the appointment of a Royal Commission to inquire into the working of the Civil Service. Discontent and agitation had, it: was stated, been rife in the telegraph service ever since its transfer to tho State, and the staff were determined that, so far as their department was concerned, no effort on their part should bo spared to enable the inquiry of the Commission to be searching and thorough. A mass of impnrtant information would be bid before tto Commission, but it was necessary that it should include statis- tic, which could only be furnished with precise accuracy by the Post-office surveyors. Applica- tion would be made to these officials, and as it was plain that all the evidence which the buiic of the staff thought necessary to lay before the Commission would pass through the careful hands of <-hesa individuals, a refusal could scarcely be anticipated.—Resolu- tions were unanimously passed condemning in strong terms the present system of promotion by selection, ItS giving opportunity for favouritism and injustice, and an earnest hope was expressed that the Commission would not only recommend a more equitable system, but tn.iko close inquiry into the fairness of past promotions and into the mode of exercising those absolute powers in this and other directions which the surveyors practi- cally, though not nominally, possess.—A com- mittee was then appointed to prepare and lay before the surveyor of the district a statement of the information wanted.
