Owen , W'illinms, general' agent' for
Well Fargo Express Comivauy, otated
yesterciay that ' even . though Uncle
m 'a paTrwsJieirvire had seriously '
affected the company's' business, cape- .
any in Handling final I packages, there
was a steady increase in tho total busi
ness transacted bythe express Company
every month 'during PJ13 , compared .;
with Inst year. "'
Tho pirtilie st H gives the express com- .
pany the preference in handling small
packages representing high values, be
raid. .Tie interstate commerce Com- '',
mission ha ordered a goneral reduction
ot all express rates, to take effect Felv. .
roary I, 1M, the new schedule to be ,:
practically the same as the pared post . .
rate ia all elase." Novertheless Mr. '''
William believe that Woll Fargo will .
continue to hold it parcel business in
competition with the, government serv.
Postmaster Joseph- ft. Pratt stated '
yesterday that since ' tho parcel pot
regulation went into ettect thcr have
been thousand of package over four
pound in weight sent by mail which
formerly would hnVe gone by express.
The postoflee . force han bandied tho
holiday t radio rapidly and eflicieutly.
: in . a general way, say J'ostmaster . ..
Iratt, the postal business for 1913 has
rnr cxreeiieil tnot of any other year.
There hive been increased receipt in
every branch of the service. The par
cel "poet division hog increased many
timer, over what it was before in weight . '
and number of - package transported :
under thinl-clas rates.'. The number of .
small package tindor'fonr'iouiids baa
nwo increased. . ' t -, - -
Tl.i branch of the service has re
ceived a Rreat deal of free advertising '
n'tne newspaper of the countrr. and
the-public has a hotter tnrdcrtanding
of. what the government -itr- ready ' to
do. Hence the remarkable development
of tlvi branch nf the service, according ';
