ACCORDING TO POST OFFICE RULING
Office of tlio Second Assistant Postmaster (Icneial, Division ot
To the Postmaster, Honolulu, 'llivvall:
Relative to the agreement leccutly roncluileil between the
United Kingdom of Great llrlt.Un iind Ii eland and tlio United
State providing for a reduttl'Jt, In tin; letter rate of postage
between the two countries, I havo to Inform ou that It has been
determined, that the term "United States" In the agreement In
question embrncca only the Slates themselves and the Terrlto
iles. Including Alaska, on the continent of North America, and
does not emhince Hawaii, I'oito Itlco, and other possessions of
the United States. JOSUPII STKWAUT.
Second Assistant Postmaster General.
October 7, 1908.
According to the ruling of the Poatofflee Department, Ha
waii is not a part of the butted States. The foregoing letter In
n dclnjcd I espouse to n icqucst mndo by Postmaster Pratt for a
ruling under the recent postal agreement between Great llritaln
iind the United States. Mr. Pratt hiui been proceeding on the
theory that these Islands being a' Territory of the United States
nore n part of It. The Postmaster Gencrnl or the "Govern
ment" appeals to thlnl: otherwise. The subject Is one that will
probably be taKcu up by tlio public organization of the city.
