tew months, a bill having been rush
ed through congress at the last session
forcing all post offices to close on the
Sabbath. The new law put a great
many people to inconvenience and gen
oral dissatisfaction was expressed
when it began to be enforced. Post
master General Hitchcock gave out a
statement declaring that he did not
stand sponsor for the bill and that
he had not suggested It. The depart
ment has not construed the bill as It
seemed to be Intended and numbers of
cities have been allowed the privilege
of having their mails if they desired
Postmaster Hicks stated several
days ago that he believed that the
patrons of this office favored the dis
tribution of the mails on Sundays, so
he wrote for a "special dispensation"
for the Laurens ofllce and his request
i was granted. The general delivery
window will not be open nor will the
i general delivery mall be distributed.
This announcement will be receiv
ed with satisfaction by a large number
of the patrons of the office and Mr.
Hicks will be congratulated upon the
interest he has shown in the matter.
