TUE SUNDAY MAIL SERVICE.

"Sunday pottofflce work in lanje cilies
canoot be very well abolished without
interfering with the needi of the public
service." aaid a poatal official in aa Inter
view rupee ling Poatmaater General Wan
amaker't advocacy for Sunday real to all
the emulojea in the postal service in tbia
country. "I am heartily in favor of the
postmaster general's scheme, seeking for
the curtailing of the work. I sen satis
fled that much Sunday labor in our post
offices can be dispensed with, and no one
would suffer in consequence."
"But a large part of the labor on
Sunday is absolutely necessary under
the present sjtem of our postal ser
vice. Sunday trains bring tnai'a from
every quarter of the globe. Now, if
Sunday work should be abolished, the
asserting, casting up and so on of this
great mass of muter would necessarily
have to be done on tondaT. in addition
to the regular work of that day. Tbis
would require an eitra number of em
ployes on that day. Then, too, we Lave
many regular Sunday clleis business
men who receive important leturs. It
is imperative that the men should be
given their mail, becuo the letters are
too important to he delavtil.
"The people in laree cities, to my
mind, would openly resent the stoppage
of Sunday mail. It is a peculiar fact
that the most impatient brinoD the face
of the earth is a tnan waiting for an im
portant letter, whether of a personal or
Rae-k. Iwlaaa taaatr Martcatea.
From the fifth biennial report of the
bureau of labor statistics of tbis state it
it learned that in ls7 there were exe
cuted and recorded 222 mortgages on
lands in Rock Island county, aggregating
$338,230 and covering 19 9i3 acres. The
number of mortgages execute I on lots
was 430, amounting to $419.0"4 on otO
lots. The chattel mortgages recorded in
the same yesr numbered 26$ and repre
sented f 73. 122. Counting mortgages
executed previously and in force in 1"?7.
there were then encumbered a total of
3.751 acres out of acres in the
county. In other words in IS?", and the
proportion will probably bold not far
from true now, 23 82 per cent of the total
of the land of the county was mortgaged.
The average incumbrance per acre
on the land mortgaged was $17.49
la 1370 but 8 74 per cent of the
land was thus encumbered as against
31.45 in 1330, showing a decrease in the
percentage of mortgages from the year
1330 to the year 1337. The total value
of farms, improvements, implements and
livestock in 1337 was f 10,609.679. while
the total of existing mortgage indebted
ness on the some items was f 1.373,412.
The total number of mortgages given
to building associations in 1330 was 7.
aggregating 15,775, and covering eight
lots. In the year 1337 alone, the num
ber given was 103, aggregating $90,130,
and covering 72 acres and 193 lots. Tbe
totil number of building association
mortgages in force in 13s7 was 612. ag
gregating f 310. 790, ami covering 43
acres and 1,122 lots.
The average rate of interest in 1370
was: For lands 9 41 per cent; for lots
86. for chattels 9 87. In 130: For
lands 7.82; for lots 7.76; for chattels
7.90. In 1837: For lands 7 23: for lots

A reporter o the Chicago Mail inter
viewed a "short change worker" con
nected with a circus exhibiting in that
city. In answer to a question as to how
the fakirs connected with a circus are
protected, the "short change man" said:
'Every town' is fituarqj before a circus
goes into it. A man goes ahead all the
time doing this. I once squared Keokuk,
Iowa, for f200 which was dead cheap,
for we were there two days and took
away lots of money. But, you see, the
officials were cheap.'' I bought the
mayor, the city attorney, the sberifl, and
the chief of police at f 'tO apiece. Those
officials must be 'squared' in every town,
and sometimes some others. Then you
see, if one of the short change workers
gets into such trouble as the circus peo
ple can't help out and is arrested, he is
either discharged or given a slight fine
or released on straw bail. Oh. there's
nothing like organization when you start
in to do business"

who baa seen seventy-seven Fourths of

aalae. Washington, D. C. July 8.- Mr. Har
rison haa apparently bent tbe knee to the
republican senatorial combination, and
the fact has created no little goaaip here.
It baa of course been well known for
aonie time past that quite a number of
more or less prominent republican sena
tors were aggrieved because of real or
fancied slights they had received from
tbe administration, and many people pre
dicted open hostilities between Harrison
and the senate next winter. A Lumber
of republican senators, including Allison,
Cullom. Chandler. Dolph and Ingalls,
consulted over tbis and other matters
and decided to bold a caucus of republi
can senators in tbe near future. They
called on tbe president in order as they
expressed it "to know where be stood."
They were surprised to find that be
stood" just where they did; believing
that no important move or appointment
should be made without consultation
with tbe party leaders and that their
wishes should be consulted in all ap
pointment in their respective sections -Senator
Cullom expressed great pleasure
at what be considered the president's
chang of heart. Some people may ac
cuse Mr. Harrison of weakness, but for
my part I think he was very shrewd to
"make op" with the senators.
Great is tbe force of example. Com-mirv-ioter
of Pensions Tanner a short
time since made bis daughter bis private
secretary at a salary of 1,900 a year,
now the new commissioner of indian af
fairs. Thos. J. Morgan, of Rhode Island,
has his wile for private secretary at a
salary of 1.X a year. Seeing tbe ac
tion of these officials Dr. Dorchester,
superintendent of indian schools, had his
wife appointed special agent. This en
ables her to travel around with the doc
tor, when he visits the different Indian
schools and get her expenses paid and a
alary of f 6 a pay from kind old Uncle
Sam. All this time there is a law
against the employment of more than
one member of tbe ssme family by the
Attorney General Miller has discovered
a rnre curiosity. It is a Virginia repub
lican who declines an office. Mr. C. A.
Heermans. who was recently appointed
assistant United Slates attorney for tbe
western district of Virginia, has written
declining tbe office on tbe ground that he
should have been appointed attorney and
that tbe smaller etftre was given him as
tbe result of a compromise between cer
tain psnies, which he refuses to recog
nize. Here's innocence for you. Does
not this young man know for be must
be very young that in politics King
Compromise rules the roost? Seldom in
the history cf the country has a president
or eyen a governor of a state been nomi
nated without tbe assistance of the all
powerful compromise. Had tbis gentle
man effected a compromise with bis tem
per, the foolish letter would probably
never have been written.
Mr. Cleveland vetoed two bills passed
by congress to quiet tbe title ot tbe land
