The postal express business.

Mr. Hitchcock has cancelled en

vacation and wil iemain in
Washington to direct the organ
The details of the parcels post
system will beworked out by a
series of committees composed t
of officers and experts of the de- I
partment. The general execu- c

consists .of Chief Inspector,
Robert S. Sharp, Supt. John C

The mode of packing- will be
prescribed carefully. The pres

"The law provides that post

stamps. This will nece.ssitate
the designing and printing of at
least a dozen denominations of
special stamps, ranging in value
fromi one cent to one dollar.
Provision for the collection on
