As to Second Class Mail
Matter Is Urged.
Are Suggested in a Lengthy ffcporl
Sent to Congress by the Joint
. Postal Commission.
Washington. Jan. 23. The report of
the Joint postal commission authoriz
ed at tho last session of congress to
Investigate, and report to that body Its
conclusions on tho operation and' ef
fect of tho existing law rolatlvu toj
second clas3 mall matter and what
changes, If any, should bo made, was
made public Sunday. Among tho
most Important additions to tho ex
isting law as regards second clas3
mall matter embodied In this measure
are the following: i
A nownpaper or other periodical i
niay bo Jn part composed of advertise-
ments which are permanently Insert
ed In, or attached to tho same, but
such advertisements shall not consti
tute more than 60 per cent, of tho
superficial area of any Issue of the
publications: nor shall 'any advertise
ment bo printed on card, cloth, or any
Bubstanco other than paper, nor upon
paper of creator weight than tho text
of such publication.
An Issuo of n newspaper or oilier
periodical may bo composed of parts
or nectlons, but nil such parts or sec
tions shall bo made of the snmo size,
form, and weight of paper, and shall,
when taken together, form ono com
plete whole. All provisions or law
upplicnble to a newspaper or periodi
cal shall apply equally to each and
every section thereof.
With a regular issue of a newspaper
or other periodical a supplement may
be Inclosed or folded.
Supplements shall not be printed on
any other subslanco than paper nor,
except In the case of maps and plann
Illustrative of tho text, shall bo of dif
ferent form from the main body of the
publication. No supplement shall bo
composed of or contain advertise
ments, but tho same shall be confined
to matter germane to the regular Is
sue and supplied in order to complete
matter left incomplete in the main
body of tbo publication.
Tho proposed law refuses tho sec
ond class rate to periodical publlca-1
tions consisting wholly or substuntl-
ally of fiction. '
The appointment of a postal appeals
Commission in tho postofflco depart
ment is provided for, to consist of
three members, at least one of which
Bhall be a person who haB had actual
experience In the conduct of the pub
lishing buslnoBs and at least one of
whom shall be learned in tho law and
a member of ten years' standing of
tho bar of tho highest court of some
utato or territory of the United States,
or the District of Columbia. t
The object of this commission Is to
allow the publisher of any newspaper
or periodical publication, tho applica
tion for the adnilBsIon of which to sec
ond class mall matter has been de
nied by the postmaster general, to ap
peal to It, and which commission Bhall
hear and determine such appeal.
The commission urgently recom
mends a new weighing, similar to thut
now In progress, but extended to em
brace for the period of six months be
ginning July 1, 1907, a weighing of all
mall matter transported throughout
the United States, class by class; ac
counting of all pieces of mall matter,
class by class; a weighing and count
ing combined of tho Individual pieces
of third, fourth and second class mat
ter, according to its natural sub
division, in such manner as to show not
nlerely tho average weight of a pioco ol ,
such matter, but tho average weight i
of the individual pieces according to
tho classification in resect of charac
ter and method of handling. '
The commission la in accord with
the views of the postmaster general
that thd whole burinc!"? system of the
postal service nhoulil bo ovcrhn tiled
by a, sot of expert arruuntnnto to be
secured from iiiULlrte the department
