By Snell Smith
Washington "It will be car policy
t make careful Inq airy Into the con
duct of the postal service, with a
view to eliminating wasteful expen
dltures and faulty readjustment of
the compensation of the employes
upon an equitable basis and other
wise Improve their working condi
tions, to the end that efficiency ot
the service of which there Is now
universal complaint may be raised to
the highest possible standard. W
shall oppose a continuance ot the
present autocratic and despotic con
trol of the telegraph and telephcnes,
and favor their return to their own
ers, subject to the regulation of the
people in the local communities, or
of the Interstate commerce commis
sion as to interstate traffic, as pre
scribed by law."
So said Representative Halyor
Steenerson of Minnesota, the new
chairman ot the House committee ou
post offices and post roads, recently.
Full of vim and energy, several

built in proportion, he Is preparing
to devote all his ttrength. In con
Junction with the other members of
the committee, to cleaning up the
post office departm nt as administer
ed by Postmaster C oneral Burleson.
He Is particularly rnxious that tho
telephone and teleiriph companies
shall not be used for political pur
pose which must ba paid for by the
taxpayers. The Postal Telegraph
Company formerly had a net annual
income of $12,000,000. Burleson
reduced It to $4,000,000. The gov
ernment guaranteed the dividends of
both It and the Western Union and
then Increased operating costs to
such an extent that a deficit wlh
have to be paid by Congress. In view
of the fact that th post office de
partment Is handling hundreds ot
millions of dollars ot receipts 01
both the telephone find telegrrph
companies, without restraint or au
thority of Congress, It Is likely tha
during the new sesFlon, to be called
before summer, a thorough inquiry
Canada has provided $25,000,000
to be loaned to worklngmen who de
sire to build homes, according to tho
Rev. Peter Bryce, of Toronto, t
member of the Canadian housing
commission Mr. Bryce has been
visiting various cities in the United
States for the purpose of collect'ng
data on war work:
"The Province of Ontario voted
$8,000,000 to be added to the hous
ing fund for all Canada," he said;
"85 per cent of a $3,000 Is to be
loaned at 5 per cent Interest."
The need of houses in Canada has
reached a point where relief was
ftecessarv, but the shortage Is not so
great as in the United States, where
it to oatimntnit mnrn than GOO. 000
dwellings are required to meet tht
normal demand, after the suspension
of building during the period In j

will be Instituted to determine Jus.
what autocratic methods were pur
sued by Burleson and just what caus
ed paying companies under private
control to meet with a large deficit
under public ownership. In an efforr
to make up this shortage the depart
ment Increased long distance tele-
! phone rates, but this is said to havo
had a disappointing eitect, ior me
reason that the higher rates caused
the. number ot calls to fall off
enormously. It is Steenerson's In
tention also to prevent further unfair
discrimination in salaries in the post
FARM GRAINS MAKE
GOOD FOWL FEED
Whe-.t Is generally consldotod the
safest grain to be fed alone. It Is
not qulto bo rattening as corn,
too fattening whon fed alone. Thlb
grain should be supplemented by
some meat feed or skimmed milk to
Increase the proportion of protein.
Wheat contains more protein than
corn, about the same amount of car
bohydrates, but less fat, and on the
whole la considered not so valuable
for fattening, but better for growth.
Wheat screenings. If they are of a
good grade, can frequently be pur
chased and ted to advantage. Of
course there Is always the danger ot
Introducing weed soed on the farm.
"Burnt wheat" can seldom be fed
advantageously, the difference In
price between this and good wheat
being usually too slight to warrant
one. In feeding It.
Oats are often fed for variety, but
are not well liked unless hulled, tin,
hulls being tough and rather Indi
gestible. Hulled oats, on the othe
hand, are relished by poultry and are
excellent for producing eges. When
ho nhtnlned at a reasonable
price In comparison with other
grains they may ue rea quite largei;.
Barley does not seem to be great
1v rotixheri hv hens, but mar be used
to give variety to the grain ration. It
has a little more protein man corn
nml it 111 t Ih lens I linn oats.
IlnUixlieol la nude well liked or
fowls, but is not very widely fed. K
may be fed to vary the ration. Buck
wheat middlings are rich In protein
and make a good mixture with corn
Rye Is not fed largely, and does
not seem to be much relished by
poultry. It is supposed to cause
bowel trouble when fed freely.

Washington Secretary of War
Baker and General March, chief of
staff, are charged by members ot
Congress with having entered Into
nn apparent agreement to prevent
General Pershing, hero of the war
with Germany and a Republican,
from making public his plan, based
upon actual experience in command
at the front, for the reorganization
of the service after the treaty of
peace has been actually signed.
General Pershing's report, made to
, the Secretary of War, Ilea Becurely
! tucked away In a war department
pigeon hole. Meanwhile March and
! Baker are hurrying through the de
tails of a plan prepared far away
from the front in Washington by
those not directly In the fight. This
scheme gives concentrated powers to
the chief of staff. Proposed to mem
' bers of the military affairs commtt-
1 tee of the House and Senate, It re
' suited In a snub for Goneral March.
! Hence one of the first military acts
i of the new Republican Congress will
; be to demand of the war department
that It turn over the Pershing docu-
ment so that a policy may be de
' veloped based upon facts gained
from the war's battles and organization.
