tion, ia in receipt of a communication
from tbe New York Board of Trade and
Transportation, which he ia requested to
lay before our association for action aad
which embodiea tbe following preamble
and resolutions adopted last month by the
New York board:
Wherbas, The reduction of letter pos
taee to one cent has been called for from
all parts of tbe country, and one of the
great political parties in its last national
platform said, "We demand tbe reduction
of letter pontage to one cent per ounce;"
Wberkas, Tbe usefulness of our pos
tal system depends in a great degree up
on its cheapness, and each successive re
duction in tbe rate of posts ge has within
a short time developed an astonishing in
crease of business, and enhanced the
usefulness of oar postal system to the
people, while tbe deficits in revenue were
soon made up:
Re$o'xd, By tbe New York Board of
Trade and Transportation, tbat the reduc
tion of letter postage to one cent per
ounce should receive tbe attention ot
congress early in tbe coming session.
Iietolted, That the secretary be re
quested to forward a copy of tbe forego
ing resolutions to each member of tbe
UoiU-d States senate and house of repre
sentatives; and be it further
Reio'.txd, That a copy of these resolu
tions be forwarded to President Harrison
and Postmaster Genoral Wanamaker,
with tbe earnest but respectful request
that the reduction of letter postage to
one cent be recommended to congress in
the president's message, and urged in tbe
report of the postmaster general, to take
effect July 1. 1890.
Itetolttd, That a copv of these resolu
tions be also forwarded to the coroner
cial organizations of tbe country, and
that their cooperation in behalf of one
cent letter postage be invited; that they
oe requested to adopt resolutions favor
ing the same, and forward a copy of their
action to President Harrison and Post
master General Wanamaker, if possible,
before tbe president's message has been
sent to congress.
Tbe first great reduction in letter pos
tage was made in 1945, to five cents per
ounce. Tbe deficit then resulting was
made up in three years. Tbe second re
duction was made in 1861, halt ounce
rate from five cents to three cents. The
surplus was, in 1865. $980,000; in 1892,
ft, 400.000; in 1883, f2,000,000. The
third reduction was made in 1884, half
ounce rate from three cents to two cents.
The fourth reduction was made in 1SS6,
two cents far half ounce made two cents
for ounce. Newspapers now go at one
cent per pound. Twenty-four letters
average one pound in weight, and pay
forty-eight cents per pound, average.
If, therefore, letter postage was reduced
to one cent per ounce, it would still psy
at a rate of twenty-four times newspaper

A Washington dispatch to the
Louis Glvbe-Demotrat reads:
Capt. Washington Hight. of St. Louis,
is in the city, and was among tbe callers
at the white bonse today. Capt. Hight
s one of tbe oldest pilots on tbe Missis
sippi river, and is a candidate for super-
ising inspector of steamboats for the St.
Lou-.s District. The term of tbe present
inspector, Capt. David R. Ashbury, will
xpire In a short time, and it Is expected
tbat a republican will be appointed soon
to succeed bim. Tbe two principal can
didates for tbe place are Capt. Frank
Burnett, tbe former inspector under a
republican administration, and Capt.
ohn Sharer, at present one of tbe boiler
inspectors. Capt. Hight is indorsed by
the Mississippi River Pilots' Association
nd by many of tbe prominent steamboat
owners, lie called upon tbe president
today and upon Secretary Windom, but
neither would indicate definitely when
ny action might be taken in tbe matter.
It is understood tbat complaiuta bave
been filed in tbe form of letters against
be present board of inspectors, alleging
that they bave used discrimination in fa
vor ot certain ownera and pilots. Tbe
oard is composed of Capt. Ashbury,
Capt. Shaffer and Capt. Archibald Gor
don, tbe latter two being In tbe service as
boiler inspectors. One of tbe letters.
iKneil bv Michael Glenn, alleges that he
was summoned as a witness before the
board and was denied tbe feea to which
be was entitled. A similar complaint is
made against tbe board by Capt. Hight,
who alleges that be was refused fees in a
case where he was. summoned to appear
or be subjected to a fine of f 100. These
are only a few of tbe complaints involv
ing tbe present board, and Capt. Hight
wiil ak tbat they be investigated .

the Holmes syndicate has done, since its
advent into Rock Island is to revive the
few old cheese boxes tbat unfortunately
were not in the Molioe avenue barn wben
it was destroyed last spring. But tbe
reason for tbis action ia explained in tbe
fact tbat the company has been the vie
tim of misplaced confidence. Aa long
ago as last June, Supt. Schnitger placed
an order with the Laclede Car company
of St. Louis, for nineteen new cars, which
as per condition of the contractor, were
to have been ready for shipment Oct. 18
Later, word came tbat tbe cars could cot
be gotten out nntil the first of the pres
ent month, so crowded were tbe works;
but tbe first of the month came and
the cars are not here. In the last stage
of desperation, Mr. Schnitger ordered
out what there were left of the old rat
tletraps to relieve as many of tbe open
cars on tbe old line as possible until the
new ones shall arrive. A new car for the
Union branch is expected over from
Davenport tonight and another will be
over toward tbe last of tbe week. These
with the new cars provided a year ago
will complete ibe service on this line and
leave the old route to be supplied by tbe
cars which bave been so long expected.
Mr. Schnitger has a promise that the
bridge line cars will be shipped this
week, and tbat the others will be for
warded during the month as fast as pos
sible. The car works have by their failure to
comply with the conditions of the order,
not only put the Holmes people to the
annoyance of being unable to provide for
comfort of their patrons on the old line.
but prevented tbe inauguration of the
Elm street line, for want of cars.
While the new cars will be in every way
first class, the delay Is very unpleasant
aad probably as much so to the railway
company as to anyone, but it is a ques
tion if the public would not in tbe mean
time prefeT to shiver in the open cars to

Mrs. George S. Knight, one of Ameri
ca a most gifted comediennes, with the
support of a strong company in tbe vari
ous casts, gave an evening of repertoire
at Harper's theatre last evening. Three
bills, "Beauty Bess," "Crazed," and "My
Lord in Livery," were presented in suc
cessive order and each cave abundant
satisfaction. Tbe productions introduced
some clever singing snd tbe acting
throughout was of a high order. Mrs.
Knight has struck a popular plan in ber
one night repertoire series, affording as it
does a refreshing change from the rollick
ing noises of comedy to a refined order
tbat requires originality of action.
Geo. O. Morris, supported by his own
company, will appear at Harper's theatre
next Saturday evening, Nov. 9ih, in bia

Tbe new scenery and handsome stage

Street Supt. Harris the glory of putting
the crossing between the Masonic temple
and tbe Cnioa building on Eighteenth
street, wholly in the line of political ef
fect, of course. But it don't go. To
City Marshal Phil Miller beloDgs what
ever there is to be said in praise of that
Aid. C. W. Negus has ordered band
some Berea stone steps for his building
west of tbe Rock Island hoase and occu
pied by H. F. Cordes. Be has thus set
himself, as well as the other Negus heirs,
an example aa to the steps for the Rock
Island house. Anything but stone ap
proaches in keeping with tbe fine walk,
would bave pretty much the appearance
of a palace enclosed in a mud fence.
Arrangements are being made on an
elaborate scale for the annual ball of the
order of Railway Conductors on tbe
Rock Island and St. Louts division of the
Burlington at Beardstown tomorrow
evening. Division Supt. Herr has
placed two ccAcbes at tbe disposal of the
conductoia for use out of Rock Island
on that occasion, and bas planned other
wise for the entertainment of the con
ductors and tbeir frienda.
Tbe paving between the rails of the
aoulh track of the street car company on
Second avenue between Sixteenth and
Seventeenth streets is beginning to yield
slightly, owing, no doubt, to the fact that
tbe excavating for the sinking of the
water pipe was not msde esrly enough
before the paving was put in to permit
the refilling to settle. The difficult? Is
not a serious one. however, and can be
easily remedied in the spring.
