Riving an Interesting B
vlnw of the Principal Developments la
the Entire Postal Transportation Service
r the United States aud Connecting For
WAamsQTOX, Oct 18. The annual
report of W. S. Shallenberger. second
assistant postmaster-general made pub
lie last night, gives an interesting re
view of the principal developments in
the entire postal transportation ser
vice of the United States and connect
ing foreign mails. It shows an aggre
gate of appropriations for this large
part of the postal service for the cur
rent year of 551,0-1!. 238; the probable
deficiency is 500,000, making the esti
mated expenditures this year $51,541.
838. This will be $U'.23,045, or3 per
cent more than for the fiscal year just
The estimate for the fiscal year 1899
is 853,237,260. which is $1,796,021 more
than the estimated expenditure for the
current year. The annnal rate of ex
penditure for the inland mail service
in the year just closed was $19,862,074,
and for foreign mail service 8 1, 79 L, 170,
after deducting $258,029 for inter
mediary service to foreign countries.
The summary of all classes of service
in operation June S3 last follows:
Number of routes, 32,491; length of
routes, 470,032 miles; annual rate of ex
penditures, $19,862,071; numberof miles
traveled per annum, 420,85J,479; rate of
cost per miie traveled, 11.84 cents; rate
of cost per mile of length, $106.08; av
grage number of trips per week, 8.60.
For star mail service the estimate for
the fiscal year ending June 30, 1899, is
$5,495,000. Last year there was an in
crease of 5,533,749 miles of travel in
5 tar service, so essential to rural dis
tricts. A current year deficiency of $30,000
is estimated for the steamboat mail
service. The estimates for the fiscal
rear 1839 include steamboat service
470,000, mail messenger service, $950,
903; transportation by pneumatic tubes
or other similar devices,by purchase or
Mlierwise, $225,0t0, and wagon service.
Last year there was only one pneu
matic postal tube in operation in the
country, that iu Philadelphia. Since
then four more contracts have been
executed in Philadelphia, New York,
Boston and between New York and
Brooklyn. Concerning this new postal
feature, Gen. Shallenberger reports:
"It is quite possible to carry second,
third and fourth-class matter, as well
as first, when it can be made profit
able. Extension to stations several
miles distant from the main office
eventually will save clerical force as
well as expedite delivery in distant
cities from 12 to 21 hours.
The most important source of rev
enue to the department will be the
large-increase of local correspondence
and special delivery letters. The ex
tension of the tubular system will be
necessarily slow and probably con
fined to populous centers.
The amount reported withheld from
the Pacific railroads on account ol
transportation is $1,312,023; estimate
for railroad transportation for the fis
cal year 1899 is $30,350,000. No esti
mate for special fast mail service is
submitted, us it is stated the service in
general will be better if the special
facility appropriation is discontinued.
The estimate for electric and cable car
service is $35,000, and 130 applications
for establishment of new service of
this character are on file.
As to foreign mails the report makes
an estimate of Si,!)01.2n0 for transpor
tation and S147.000 for balances du
foreign countries. The aggregate cost
of this service was $2,019,193, including
$1,106,276 for transatlantic and $179, 132
for transpacific service.
The report takes an important posi
tion as to newspaper mail, and a plan
to make the profits on short hauls oil
set the long runs.
Gen. Shallenberger ssys: "There
seems to be no good reason why the
great bulk of legitimate newspapers
carried by the government, at a great
loss, to remote places should be permit
ted to be taken away from the mails
by railroad and express companies
whenever there is a short haul that
would make the carriage of them
profitable to the government The
carriage of newspapers, packages, etc.,
by railroads and express compan
ies may have been justified,
perhaps, years ago, when the railway
mail service was less efficient But
with our present facilities, and such as
may be easily obtained, I am convinced
that the department can and should
carry the great bulk of newspaper
matter that has been for years with
held from the mails and sent in bag
gage cars and special express trains."

The extreme heat of last week greatly

serious trouble was anticipated.
Mr. Pullman was at his office in the
Pullman building daily and dined
Monday with his friends at his club.

away without speaking and with
scarcely a struggle.
Mrs. Pullman, who with her two
sons, George and Sanger, has been on
an eastern tour, was wired at once, and
no funeral arrangements will be made
until she arrives.
Mr. Pullman's wealth is variously
estimated at from $23,000,000 to 80, 000,

fined to a few corporations, the bulk of
the holdings being stock in the Pull
