law vests in the president. In the fourth-
class is found nearly all the offices; the
salary being less than one thousand dollars,'
the postmaster is appointed by the post-
master-general. The first class contains, all
offices where the salary is at least three thous-
and dollars; the second class runs from two
thousand to three thousand dollars; and the
third class from one thousand to two thousand
dollars. The population of the United States
