OCEAN MAIL SUBSIDIES.
Special despatch to S. J' Gall.)
Washington, Nov. '22. Postmaster-General
Vilas will, according to
an editorial hi this morning's 1'ost,
niako in his annual repot t a defence
of his action in refusing to distri
bute the S 100,000 appropriated by
the act of March Unl last, to be
paid to American steamship lines for
carrying foreign mails. The argu
ment in the Post, which rai evi-
.1 41.. 2 ..! 1 1... 1. 11...1 .
ucuuy luspiiuu uy uiu j. eiswnasiiu- in
uenerat, is a tame excuse lor a pal
pable violation of an act. of Con
gress. The Postmaster - General
claims that the law was not manda
tory, but that he could or could not
obey its piovision at his discretion.
A good deal of space is devoted to
what is called the abuse and mis
representation of "the organs of the
Pacific Mail Steamship Company,"
and the Postmaster-General protests
that he has not endeavored to dis
courage American shipping. The
article says that the Postmaster
General explored, with genuine and
anxious vigilance, the new field
broached by the act of March Jlnl,
but the investigation disclosed in
superable iliilicultics. It appeared
first that the assigning of contiacts
as a result of competitive bids as
hopelessly impossible, as in only
two instances among the numerous
ocean routes over which the mails
were to be sent w as there competi
tion. The others were in the hands
of monopolies,. In only two cases,
theieforc, could the law be obeyed ;
in the lest the law would have to
be ilagiantly set at naught. Be
tween New i'oi k and Havana, and
between San Fiancisco and Asia
the department could have secured
for the Government the benefit of
competition, but over the other
routes, to South America, Ccntial
America, Australia and New Zeal
and, the monopoly lines would have
been without restraint. They were
free to demand the maximum of
fifty cents per mile specified in the
law. According to the figures found
in the depaitmcnt, when the Demo
cratic administration came in, the
total number of miles bailed in 1881
by ships cairying United States
mail was 2,050,000, and at the fifty
cent rate allowed in the act this
would call for $1,025,000, two and
a half times the amount appropri
ated for the purpose. It is claimed
that by the arrangement now made
the mails arc transported quicker
and more frequently than foimerly,
and that the country is therefoie
benefited by the Postmaster-General's
action. It is evident that
General Vilas fcais that Congress
will investigate his course in the
matter of the refusal to obey the
plain intent of that body when the
act in question was passed, and
seeks to create public opinion in his
favor bj' getting his defence in print
in advance of the meeting of Con
gress. The enforcement of Bismarck's
edict exiling Russian Poles fiom
Prussia has caused gi eat suffei ing,
and a relief committee at Cracow
calls the edict cruel and inhuman.
The feeling of bitterness engendered
is becoming daily more intensified.
The inconvenient consequences of
the withdrawal of Belgium from the
Latin Monctaiy Union are beginning
to be felt in France. In a few weeks
the Belgian silver five-franc piece
will cease to be a legal tender. The
total loss on all the repudiated money
circulating in France will exceed
