d Dear Sir:-I se- from your me:

e You say the cause of this defici
is the carrying of second class ma
matter too cheap (one cent pe

e. nine cents per pound, for carryin
;o se-cond class mail matter.
n Now, Mr. Taft, I have it from th
n very best authority that the expres
h companies carry papers and mags
k zines at one cent per pound, anoid th
s express companies pay the railroa

e pound for such matter.
f Now the question arises, why thi

n The facts embodied in the fore
i- going letter indicate a policy 'of th
o government of which the reader ma
judge for :himself-yet not in silen
id acquiescence; it is a subject that ev
h ery one should bring to the atter
- tion of his representatives in con
.e gress with a demand - for action It
a effect a change.
n Just at the present time we ar
vitally concerned about the Presj
b- dent's reply to that letter. It co
:s sists in applying himself vigorousl
-, to infuence congress to alter th
11 postal law so as to exclude from se<
e ond class - mail matter all magazine
y and papers except the great dailie
d (which have influence in presider
11 tial nominations).
The one plea is, that the postU
service is not paying expenses. J
se great weekly Jabor journal asks:
d pertinent question: "Why shodl
y the deficit .made up? Why shoul
i- the posto ee pay? Does the nay
s pay ? Does the army pay ? DoE
e -the agricultural department pay
us Does the weather bureau pay? Doe
n any . department 'of governmer
n pay?"' Then why all -this hue ain
.d cry about the postal deficit?i
Et Ah Sir! it is not that. Th~e adc
n ministration knows well that an ix
t- -erease in postage .as proposed wou]
be of 'little material advantage to th
it fmnances; for it would put onftof hua
s in'ess so many trades-journais, an
