A NEW MAIL PLAN

l.ach by Latitude and Longitude.
Washington, July 9.?Senator
Doutno's parcels post scheme, which,
in all probability, will be reported to
the Senate this week from the com
mittee on postoffices and post rouds, of
which he is chairman, as a feature of
the postofllce appropriation bill, at
tempts to solve the problem in an en
tirely new way, and promises the so
lution of this controversy In the opin>
lon of many mombers of the Senate.
Mr. Bourne proposes to change the
classification of mall and postage
rates so that Instead of there being
four classes of mall there will be but
three. The first and second classes
are to remain as now. The first
class mall la to be paid for by stamps
attached. The second-lass mall is
to be paid for In money. Third
class mail would include all mallabie
matter not embraced in the flrBt
two classes. The parcels poBt al
ready In existence In this country,
limited to a four-pound package,
cost I cent an ounce to transport,
would be changed and the limit
raised to eleven pounds.
The cost of transportation will be
regulated by distance as well as
weight. The country is divided Into
six zones, the first zone including all
territory lying within a mean radial
distance of 50 miles from a central
point. The sixth zone Includes all
territory lying outside of a radius of
2.000 miles from the central point.
Each State and Territory Is divided
into units of 30 minutes square. The
author decided to measure the units
by means of lattltude and longitude.
In view of the Impracticability of
making the several States of different
sizes units in themselves. He ad
mits that some slight Injustice will
be done under this scheme, but be
lieves It is reduced to a minimum.
The rate of transportation was bas
ed upon figures showing the actual
cost of carrying a poung package
of fourth-class matter various dis
tances from 50 to 2.000 mllea.
The coBt varies from 6 cents for
the first pound and 2 cents for each
additional pound In the first zone, to
12 cents for the first pound and 12
cents for each additional pound in the
Senator nourne. in discussing his
"I believe the flat-rate Bystem un
scientific, and Impracticable as ap
plied to packages such as we expect
to transport under parcels post. It
Is unscientific because It disregards
distance. In the transportation of
letters, where the Individual pieces
are small, distance is of little conse
quence, but this Is not true of pack
ages of merchandise. It Is Impracti
cable because the high rate for the
short distance will practically pro
hibit the use of the service for trans
portation of goods of low value.

companies I deem unwise and un
necessary. It tends toward paternal
