Ella j South australian Federal officers. Effect of classification. Increases and decreases. The Federal officers stationed in Adelaide were much exercised in their minds on wednesday Over the classification report which was kid on the table of the or representatives that afternoon. Copies wore forwarded to tire different depart ments for the information of the officials and immediately there was a Rush by pub Lic servants anxious to know their Fate. No classification scheme Ever yet satisfied every one. Nearly All the local officers expected increases. Many were disappointed and there was rather a sad smile on the faces of those whose offices were declared to be of less value than is being paid for them. Or. J. Gardiner the Federal in Spector remarked on wednesday that the postal officials in South Australia have been paid much higher salaries than in the other slates but this was due to the fact that in tin s slate there formerly prevailed a minimum and a maximum for each class and once an employee mis promoted to a higher sphere he Rose automatically to the top wage in that division.

There Are at present 1.-154 Federal officers in South Australia 1,041 in the Post and Telegraph 100 in the customs and 13 in the defence Force. The total increases will amount to f 4.6s7, made up of �3,455 in. The Post office �1,080 in the customs and �152 in the defences but ultimately it u expected that there will be a reduction of about �9,000 in the Post office and �810 in the customs or a total of a 0,810 tiie extra amounts Are due to increases in Sak Rita and the reductions to the stoppage of the percentage for the Sale of postage Stamps which was formerly granted to postmasters and the fees Given for the management of the savings Bank agencies which in future will is paid into the Gene ral Revenue. Another cause of the decreased expenditure will be the reduced value placed on certain offices. The rebate allowed to officers for tie Sale of Stamps last year amounted to �080, and tie payments by the savings Bank to �3,765. the increased the state will have the advantage of not having to Grant certain increases to officers on the fixed list Winch would total �1,800.
