of a proposal was a disappointment to
Postmaster General Hitchcock, who
practically had bids advertised for his
benefit i A : .:, '
More than a year ago, the Postoffice
Department advertised extensively for
bids to carry the mails under sub
sidy, on two or more routes, on both
the Atlantic and . Pacific coasts.
Mr. Baker conferred 'with fcie de

the organization of a big company' to
operate ' steamers on both coasts and
through the canal. One of the. routes
was to be operated from Baltimore
and Chesapeake bay: When Novem
