Trj-City Passenger Agent V. A.
Hart, of the Burlington, has received
a letter from P. S. Kustis, head of the
traffic, department of the road, reply
ing to the petition signed by a large
number of Hock Island business men
and, presented to. the officials of the
road last week, asking that the train
known as. the (ialesburg passenger,
recently taken oft, be replaced in serv
ice. Mr. Kustis says: i
"I received a communication dated
the 9th, signed "by many of our good
patrons in the tri-cities, protesting
against abolition of passenger trains
No. J andSY. 1.0, on the St, Louis di
vision. -' ,
"I appreciate fully the force of the
objections they make, and at this
time can only say that the fact that
we have taken off these trains and
others, upon very short notice, and
without discussion of the .matter to
any great extent with our patrons, is
the best illustration I can. give to
show that we are in great difficulty.
Our patrons everywhere are pressing
us for more prompt delivery of
freight, especially of coal, and not
withstanding the extensive purchase
of engines in the past, as prudent,
far-seeing business men should, we
find ourselves this winter unable to
move traffic as promptly as our pat
rons desire, and as we would like to
do it. In order to help out. therefore,
it became very important that we
should release motive power now in
usj.for passenger t rains, where we
could do so with the least damage
While it is true the removal of No. 9
and No. 10 may have its bad effects
here and there, in the main it is a;
train that paid rather a small income
per mile, and belonged to that class
which it seems to me clearly should
be the first to be taken off, if it is ab
solutely necessary to remove any.
"In other words, if it is clearly nee
essaryto take feaginct; out (passen
ger service, it follows that it is wise
to take off fhe passenger' 'trains that
earn a small amount, rather than
those that earn a large, amount, ho-
cause the average earnings 'per mile
run is the best indication of the. pub
lic necessity of a passenger train.
Suggesting: a Rrmedy.
".Just as soon as the present pres
sure upon the operating department
is relieved the whole subject will have
attention, and I shall hope to be able
to so rearrange the train service as
to leave it reasonably satisfactory, if
not wholly so, to'our patrons at Kock
Island. Davenport and Moline."
In Monmouth citizens have taken
1ip the matter . of interviewing
General Supt. Kite on the -question.
Mr. Rice openly stifted that the train
had not been paying, holding .out no
hope that the service would be resum-1
eu at a future date, ile stated, how
ever, that the officials are considering
the advisability of putting on another
through St. Louis-St. Paul train.

conditions somewhat. "The people of

considerably late, in fact, a matter of
about two hours, and when the train

expected to change cars, it was found
that the train for Henderson and
Galesburg had already departed.
This was due to the fact that the
train was due out of fialesburg for

walk from Rio to Henderson, she re
mained on the train until she reached

weeks ago, the Kock Island girl was
compelled to wait in Monmouth until
afternoon as there was no train by
which she could reach (ialesburg.

NEW REGULATIONS AS
TO BUBAL MAIL DELIVEBY
Third Assistant Postmaster General
Madden has issued a manual of in
structions for the .conduct of the reg
istry business in the rural free deliv
ery service. The most important in
novation proves to be the registration
of letters and parcels left in the rural
marl boxes, the carrier leaving the
sender's receipt in the box. Formerly
it was necessurv for the sender to
meet the carrier on the route.
Rural carriers are also required to
accept for registration mail matter

Storekeepers on rural routes custom

patrons, delivering it to them at the
first opportunity. Registered mail has
not been delivered in this manner in
the. past, but it is provided now that

ressees are required to leave for the
delivery of their mail to the store
keeper, registered mail also will be
delivered, except sucli'as is indorsed
by the sender,"Deliver to the address
Postmasters hereafter will not be"
permitted to rent boxes to minors
without the written consent of their
parents. The order was made by the
postoffice department, to correct an
abuse growing out of the fact that
minor girls rent boxes and open up
correspondence With outride parties
and in that way keep the correspond
ence a secret from their parents. This
is a good ruling arrd will doubtless
put a stop to much flirtation. It may
also stop a more serious evil. When
a girl has a correspondence she is
ashamed for her mother to know
about, she is treading on quicksand
that may engulf her.
