was the centre of great excitement to-day, which
later *ook the form of a disorderly demonstra
tion against former President Loubet. Crowds

patrolled th« surrounding streets, expecting
trouble within the building, but the authorities
did not attempt to make an Inventory.
The crowds outside gradually Increased In

persons marched to the Rue Dante, where M.

however, reassembled and returned, only to be
dispersed a«raln. There was a slight affray be

sentatives Parsons, Olcott and Rennet are in
teresting themselves especially in the «-as<». and
are consulting with PostoftVe Department offi
cials ar.d Postmaster Willcox to decide on a.
new site and possibly to recommend a complete
change in the plans now contemplated for elab
orating New-York postal service.
These members of the New-York City dele
gation ail declare themselves opposed to the
Pennsylvania site. They purpose to ask for a
repeal of the act under which the Postmaster
General is authorized Is purchase the site at the
railroad terminal. Representative Bennet ex
pressed the feeling of the New-York member*
on this subject to-day a^ follows:
This i« th* biggest question affecting New- York
City In this Congress. lam convinced, and so are
others of the New-York delegation, that the se
lection of the Pennsylvania terminal for the Wg
postofflce to be put there by the commission aj>
polnttd by Congress to invstigat© this subject two
years ago was a great aaaatsSa. ■aes the build
i:ig of th« subway the plan is obviously not the
most practical one for promoting the most rapid
and satisfactory delivery of the enormous quantity
of New-York City ma:!. The opening of the sub
way presents an entirely new condition. The most
common sense thing to do is to take advantage '>*
th*> splendid facilities which this form of rapid
transit affords for the quick distribution ef mall-
VVe have not yet definitely settled upon a plan, but
the easential idea la that the so-called uptown post
olflce must be on the subway. That service fam
ishes a means of rapid transit through the heart
of the rlty, and It Is calculated that If the station
Is located on the subway fully an hour would be
saved in the. distribution of the city ma!!.
We have rot decided on any particular place, but
the site should certainly be somewhere east of t^e
Pennsylvania terminal. The new postoflce, In my
opinion, should be of one story, with plenty of floor
space and «ver facility for quick distribution. It
should be a central station, closely COnSMeSai with
Bub-9tationa by pneumatic tubes. It ia not nee*^-
Bary to have the postoiiiee directly at the railroad
terminals. That only partially solves the problem
of rapid mall service, because of the distance city
mail has to be conveyed.
The attitude of the New-York members Is be
lieved to reflect the views of the Postofflce De
partment officials, and the fact that the Post
master General haa failed to approve the pro
posed deed for the acquisition of the Pennsyl
vania property Is taken to Indicate that he does
not favor It. The act of Congress which speci
fies this site was passed two years ago. and ap
propriates $1,700,000 for the property. A clause
of the act says that this appropriation "shall
not become available until the Postmaster Gen
eral shall have certified that the terms, condi
tions and limitation of such purchase and con
veyance meet with his approval."
This is the loophole on which the legal offi
cers of the department base, their belief that
the usfcslllii of the property Is not mandatory.
In case a change Is decided on. one cf the New-
York members will introduce a bill repealing
the act, and asking for a new appropriation.
This v.ill be done in connection with the request
for an appropriation for the construction of
the buiklinc. The site of the terminal station
was selected by a committee composed of Post
master General Payne, retary Shaw and At
torney General Kr.ox.
Th*» provision for the nur<-ha»* of the site was
added le the H^u?e Postofnc©- bl!l In the Sen
ate, through the influence of the New- York Sen
