Scatter Knute Nelson Asks
that Leave Be Granted
Railway Mail Men.
20,000 TO BEAFFECTED
Those Mentioned" Only Men in the
tCIattified Service Who Do
, Not Get Leare.
Senator Knute Nelson Introduced a bill
yesterday -which he believes will do tardy
justice to the 20.000 railway mall clerks
If It la enacted Into law.
The men who sort and separate the
malls with lightning rapidity while speed
ing; in all directions oer the country are
the only persons In the classified crrll
service who do not enjoy an annual vaca
tion. They are subject to call at all times,
including holidays and Sundajs. and do
not even hac the privilege accorded
other employes of the government when
they are ill.
In other words, the railway mall clerks
when sick or unable to go on their run
for any reason whatever must provld
a man on the waiting or substitute list.
The bill of Senator Nelson provides for
an annual leave for not exceedlns fifteen
days with pay. The usual period of de
partmental vacation la thirty days. The
railway mall clerks work on a minimum
of 2,10 hours per annum.
Many of them work more hours than
this, and some work less. So there are
some officials who think that the annual
eae should be based on a maximum
and minimum basis, and would submit
another proposition in lieu of Senator
They -would allow one day's leae for
every eight hours of service performed
In excess of the i2W hours of minimum
work, and those who do not come up to
the standard would not get any leave.
This proIslon did not suit Senator Nel
son, who thinks all of the men should
have some sort of a respite, at least
once a year.
Another scheme to work out the an
nual leave period on the percentage of
actual work done Is to allow. In addi
tion to the regular fifteen daya granted
by the Nelson bllj, an additional day for
eer eight hours performed In excess of
the 2,210-hour minimum, and for eery
eight hours below tho minimum to sub
tract one da's !eae of absence
The Induction of the parcel post has
put a great deal of extra work on the
traellng mail clerks. In the opinion
of experts, the Post-office Department
will soon hae lo put on special cars
with cold storage facilities. The mall
cars are heated by steam In the winter,
and perishable articles, as well as butter
and eggs, sent b parcel post. hae in
man) Instances spoiled in transit. Par
cel post freight cars or something like
it li only a question of the future
'Washington is a center for rallwa
mall clerks. A large number of them
start out from here on their routes, and
many reside here
