We quote from a oopy of a letter from Hon. Louis
H. Pink, Superintendent of Insurance of New York which was
enclosed with your inquiry, as follows:.
"In the Department there are four grades
of examiners, nely, Junior, Assistant, Senior
and Principal. The first three groups do sub-
stantially all of the actual examination work.
The latter or "principal" group is composed of
chiefs of the various bureaus, namely, Chief
of the Fire &. Marine Bureau, Chief of the Life
Bureau, Chief of the Miscellaneous Bureau, etc.
Each of the groups has a minimum and maximum
salary. Upon entrance to a grade an examiner
is paid the minimum salary thereof and then by
the process of yearly increments reaches the
maximum where he remains until his promotion to
the next higher grade, Appointments to the
Junior grade are made as a result of open compe-
titive examinations whereas promotions to grades
higher than Junia result from promotion examina-
tions confined to eligible men within the depart-
ment. The minimum and maximum salaries for each
"Grade Minimum Maximum
