That the use of an automobile l
a great advantage to the collection
of United States mall has Just been
demonstrated by local superintend
cnt of delivery Itobcrt Madden of
the San Francisco postoflkc. In the
test, which wan over ths longot mid
most difficult route of the city, the
carrier, using a slx-cyllndcr Win ton
machine, not only saved fifty er
cent In the time consumed by the
old way of collection, hut ulso made
Iho trip nt less expense.
The route of the test Included
most of thu mall boxes In the West
ern Addition. Over forty stops were
made in (ess than forty mluutcs, the
carrier swinging out. of the machine,
picking up the mail and getting to
the next stop without the loss of a
minute. In speaking of the test Su
perintendent Madden snld:
"After such a thorough trial ns
we gave the car, I am convinced that
the use of a motor car for collection
purposes would greatly facilitate
our work, especially in the hilly sec
tions of the city. In the Win I on
car we used In the test we effected
a great saving In time, mid another
saving In labor. The car can make
the ascent of the steepest hills nt
good speed, while the present car
riers cither have to walk up the
steep grades or go several blocks out
of their way In order to .drive a horse
to the different boxes. One of the
most favorable points I found with
tho car was the fact that we did not
have to crank the machine from tho
time we left the postofllec until wo
"Judging from our test I nm sure
that one machine could do the work'
of several horses and wagons, as arc
now used. Several of the larger
eastern cities aro now using motor
cnr for the mall service, and ac
cording to reports all of them aro
getting good results. With the un
usual grade conditions of this city's
streets, I nm heartily In favor of
giving automobiles a trial In thu
collection and delivery of mails."
