Postmaster General Hitchcock Lets
Contract to Geological Survey,
the Lowest Bidder.
Postmaster General Hitchcock haa
awarded the contract for printing 125,000
parcel-post maps of the United States
to the Geological Suney. which submit
ted the lowest bid.
Mr. Hitchcock is thus able to take ad
antage of the resources of the govern
ment to furnish these maps, and Is able
to rely thoroughly upon their accuracy,
a most important consideration, because
the slightest error on a map might make
considerable difference In postage rates
Since the parcel-post system must be
In operation on January 1, It is neces
sary that there be no delay In the work
on the maps, and Mr. Hitchcock an
nounces that they will be completed and
in the hands of postmasters in sufficient
time to enable them to familiarize them
selves with, the method of calculating
rates for the new system.
More than 30,000 pounds of the best
map paper. Insuring strong and durable
maps, has been already purchased by the
Post-office Department. On this excel
lent paper the maps will be printed from
enxraed copper plates, which will be
safeguarded with the same care as those
used for printing money and postage

Local Republicans Hear Encourag
ing Reports of Situation in
Local Republicans this week are opti
mistic regarding the political outlook,
and the campaign is warming up Into
something or the old-time enthusiasm.
Reports which have reached T. Lincoln
Tonnsend and his lieutenants at the
Taft headquarters. Fourteenth and G
Streets, are said to be encouraging.
Gus Schuidt jesterday received a letter
from John Hays Hammond, president of
the National League of Republican Clubs.
stating that the situation has materially
changed throughout the country within
the past fortnight. Mr. Hammond said
that great conlidcnce Inspires the ac
tivity of the League of Republican Clubs
as well as the councils of the Republican
Visitors coming to Washington from
distant Statea all say that Republicanism
Is gaining, and the Bull Moose party Is
losing ground. Mr. Townsend and his
fellow-workers here express the belief
that the Bull Moose movement has gone
to Its full tide and is now rapidly reced
ing. He thinks that the deflection of
voters from Taft will be much smaller
than was at one time anticipated.
According to reports from competent
judges of the situation In Pennsylvania.
Marland. and Virginia, Wilson entnusi
asm is almost entirely lacking In the
ranks of the Democracy, and many Dem
ocrats have made the avowal that they
will vote for Taft to make sure that the
Bull Moose shall not 'force his way Into
the White House next March.
This Is the burden of the news coming
from many sources to the Republican
headquarters in Washington. It has
greatly encouraged the local workers,
and they hae gone to work with a will
to do their share In bringing their hopes
