OFFICE OF THE LIGHT-HOUSE BOARD
Washington, 3 June, 1903.
Referring to your letter of 22 May, '03, asking the appointment of Mr. Fred J. Booth as Laborer in the Light-House Service, to care for the Yaquina Bar Range, Government Wharf, and Middle Ground Beacons Lights, Yaquina Bay, Oreg., with pay at the rate of $40. a month from 1 may, '03, in accordance with the provisions of Civil Service Rule 3 Section A, the Board states that it infers that you mean Civil Service Rule III. Section 8(a), which is now, under the Revised Civil Service Rules, Rule II. Section 3. The rate of pay which you recommend, $40. a month, is in excess of the rate allowed for Laborers appointed without examination, the limit being $300. a year.
The Board requests you to make further explanation in regard to the nomination of Mr. Booth and also requests you to state how these beacon lights have been cared for up to the present time, as the records of this office do not show that any Laborers have been authorized to care for them.
Captain, U. S. N.,
