ON PARCEL POST
Business Done Daring First
Week to Be Reported to
PRINTING MORE STAMPS
Although Report. Show Large Increase
in Business, There b No Conges
tion in Offices or on Mail Cars.
All postmasters were Instructed ester
day by Postmaster General Hitchcock to
forward to the department on January 7
a report In detail of tho amount of par
cel post business done in their respective
offices during; the first week's business.
The unofficial reports received to date in
dicate that the success of the new serv
ice has exceeded all expectations. The
tremendous Interest shown by the people
In every section of the country has In
fluenced the Postmaster General in di
recting that the postmasters make a re
port preliminary to the one asked for to
be made on January 15. On that date
the postmasters will submit a more com
prehensive report on the volume of par
cel post business handled, the additional
cost, together with an outline of the plan
adopted In handling the new business.
In this manner Sir. Hitchcock hopes to
secure an accurate report of the cost of
the new sstem. in order that an esti
mate may be submitted to Congress for
the aDnronrlation necessary to handle the
additional business during the remainder
of the present fiscal year ana tne next. .
The information asked for In the pre
liminary report on January 7 will cover
the total amount of local parcels de
llered. with their average weights:
amount of postage on local parcels,
number of Incoming parcels delivered,
outgoing parcels dispatched, with their
average weights; postage on parcels dis
patched, number of Insured parcels dis
patched, nnd number of insured pack
ages received for deliver
From practically every section of the
country requisitions are being received
by letter and telegraph for an additional
supply of parcel post stamps. All such
requisitions are being filed the same day
they are received, and In special cases,
where any denominations have been ex
hausted, a near-by post-offlce has been
called upon to forward a. supply until
stamps forwarded from Washington
hive been received There Is no danger
of a tie-up in the service on account of
the supply of stamps at Washington be
coming exhausted, as a sufficient reserve
is on hand At the request of Postmas
ter General Hitchcock, the Bureau of
Kngraving and Printing has increased its
facilities so as to turn out 10.fl00.fiil
stamps daily In ordtr that none of the
denominations may become exhausted.
1 p to the present time a little more
than 5,000.00 stamps have been printed
Although the reports received from
postmasters indicate a tremendous in
crease In business on account of parcel
pot there Is no congestion reported or
a request made on the department for
aid Ever) thing Is apparently satlsfac
torj In the railway mall service, as few
telegrams have been received from su
perintendents, and of those received
none has reported a congestion in the
s rv ice.

Continued from rage One.
ture, Mr., Best refused to alter his
original criticism that It was misleading.
Mr. Carusl took him through a series of
technical mathematical calculations to
show that the company was In far better
financial condition than Could be indi
cated' on the regular blank form on
which reports are required to be made
out. Mr. Best, however, stuck to his
original contention that In view of the
exceptionally large loss ratio for the
first ten months upward of 75 per cent
the companies were not Justified In
phrasing their advertising literature as
they had. although technically the litera
ture might be held not Inaccurate.,
Ills testimony as to the literature was
applied more particularly to the resolu
tion passed by the directors of the
Commercial last November, which set
forth In ono 'paragraph that the pre
mium 'ncome of the company had been
materially Increased, and. In the next
paragraph, that the capital and surplus
of the company has been materially In-,
cresed and the company had earned
for Its stockholders a large amount of
money. The technically upon which
the probity of this statement hinged
involved the possible connection of the
word "earned" In the second para
graph, with tho mention of the pro
nilum Income In the first.
Much of the time yesterday was
spent In Introducing figures relating
to other fire Insurance companies by
comparison, particularly In connection
way of comparison, particularly In con
nection with Best's criticism of the
large ratio which tho amount carried
as real estate enrnlngs, through the
Increase In book values of the Southern
Building, bbre to the total surplus ot
Flgnres for Other Companies.
According to a sort of Joint computa
tion by Best and Carusl, to which the
latter acceded In part, the surplus of
the company without the Increased
value of the Southern Building being
carried as an asset, would have been
In the neighborhood or JH.000. This,
however. If the Southern Building
transaction should be taken Into con
sideration, would be reduced to S2.70O
plus the J226.713 carried under Income
as the Commercial's half of the In
creased value of the building "
Carusl. through question. Indicated
that the National Union lire Insurance
Company, of this city, had, at the last
leportlng. assets totaling J2S3.O0O, of
which 1171,000 was In the form of real
estate, tho Arlington Fire Insurance
Companv, of this city, total assets. S370,
000, of which $214.00 was In the form of
real estate; the Firemen's FIro Insurance
Company, total assets, 3313.000; real es
Mr Carusl next attacked the calcula
tion which charged off as an underwrit
ing loss the unearned liability ot the
company, that Is. money which must l
held In reserve to met t possible tiro loss
from paid-up policies which run for more
than one ear
"Is It not true." he asked, "that the
unearned premium reserve- Is treated In
Insurance solely as a liabilltj "
"Is it not true that an nveragely good
company has business on the hooks
which represnts n big unearned pre
mium reserve fund has a profit In It for
the lompanv which is
"The lower figure would be morencar
l correct " j '
"So that, although rlisifed as a lia
bility, ns getting at the real condition
of the company nnd its assets, 25 per
cent of this premium reserve might be
treated as available assest belonging to
That is true If the business of the
company for a time preceding the corn
put ttionsav for to or three years
immediately preceding show d a profit
Such a deduction would be dependant
for proof upon the probability that the
company, could s,n nut or reinsure nt a
profit If It hadn't been earning profits
It could not sell Ht a profit "
Holds Others Responsible.
Referring to Best's statement that the
fire loss ratio wliich the Commercial
tallied In the first ten months of 1512
was exceptlonallv- heav, Mr. Carusi
asked him if he Knew that much of the
business put en tho books of the Com
mercial by the company, which owned
it before Tuttle. Wightman & Dudley.
Inc , took over the control, had not been
canceled Mr. Best replied In tho nega
tive, and Carusl asked him if it wire
not possible that part of the heavy loss
was from hazards underwritten by the
former management. Best replied that
this was possible
"You do not know then the loss ratio
of the business placed by Tuttle, Wight
man & Dudley?"
"No. I have only the figures of this re
Mr Carusl asked th
witness If tne
expenses or a new companv. outside
thoo Incurred Inactually getting the
business, are not heavier than In tho
case of older and established companies.
"Yes," replied Best, "a new company
has to pay higher commissions"
One cjutstlon Indicated a contention on
the part of counsel for the companies
that the premium reserve requirements
of Insurance laws work hardship on
small nnd new companies. Inasmuch as
they must automatically stop writing In
surance at a low point unless the sur
plus and premium reserve Is Increased
from some other source, such as pre
mium on stock.
Walter C. English, a local attorney,
was the last witness of the day. Mr.
English testified that last summer he
concluded that the Commercial was op
erating at a loss and called on Mr. Ca
rusl for Information. Mr. Carusl prom
ised to consult the officers of the com
pany about the matter nd communicate
with English, the witness testified, but
r.o further Information was forthcoming
from the visit. Jle was not cross-examined.

COX ON COMMITTEE
In Line for Head of Body that Frames
Appropriation Bills for the
District of Columbia.
Representative Eugene F. KInkead ot
New Jersey has been appointed on the
District subcommittee of the Appropria
tions Committee to fill the vacancy caused
bv the resignation of Representative Cox,
Governor of Ohio. Mr. KInkead la one
of the active young members ot the com
mlttee, and has manifested a generous
Interest In District affairs.
The appointment of Mr. KInkead Is
significant In view of the strong proba
bility that Mr. Burleson will be elevated
to a Cabinet position under the new ad
ministration, leaving the New Jersey
member directly In line for the Important
position as chairman of the subcommit
tee, which frames the annual District

detectives ure seeking to uncover evi
dence to show that Jacob Moon, negro,
eighteen Jears old. of 2131 Ward Place,

Is suspected by the police of committing
the murder, and Annie Tyson is believed
to have knowledge of the killing.

took flight, chased by Lewis, who caught
the fugitive In the vacant lot, about a
square from the house, and beat him
