Burleson Says No Appointments Ex
eept of an Emergency Nature Will
, Be Made Till April 1.
Washington, March 8.?Postmastei
General Burleson 6aid today that nc
appointments of postmasters probabl:
Tvould be made before April 1, ex
cept possibly in cases of -emergency
Approximately 1,500 such appoint'
ments by Mr. Taft were not acted ui
? by the last senate, and it ^vill be necessary
for President Wilson to make
appointments to all those offices.
Mr. Burleson indicated that jl
would be his policy too, not to disturb
capable and efficient postal employes
protected by the civil service
He is said to recognize that the postoffice
department is a great business
institution and he proposes to do
nothing that might lower the effi
s v Augusta Wants Interurban.
There is a strong sentim-ent in the
lower portion of South Carolina to
induce the Interurban officials to
extend the road, South from Green
wood to Augusta. This would tap
6ome of the richest territory in th-3
State and would traverse a section of
almost unlimited possibilities.
As to Augrusta.
The following from the Augusta
Chronicle under, date of March 3
? will be of extraordinary interest in

"This isn't a railroad on the
; ground, a large part of it now already
in operation and plans made
and other plans under advisement
for its extension. Where the work
v has been completed and the line put
in operation the development has
worked a wonderful commercial
change. As an example, before the
new road was Tfpened a freight shipment
from New York to Anderson,
S. C., would arrive at its destination
?if not tied up or delayed en route
?in about two weeks. If the shipment
was "fast freight" with a
"tracer" behind it, people in Ander
son say the arrival at the destination
has been accomplished in 10
days. Now freight shipments are
delivered from New York into warehouses
in Anderson in 48 hours.
