Thousands of Persons Who Make a Living in That Way. Some of the Methods Which They Employ i -Why the Government Cannot Stop the Thing. "There are at least 10,000 men in the United States who une the mails for the purpose of paltry fraud." Such was the remark of one of Uncle Sam's postoffie inspectors to a New York News reporter in room 104, the new quar ters of the special aetective service in the federal building. "Perhaps," he continued, "there is noth ing more easy than to cheat the public through the mails, if you are satisfied in getting small sums from each 'sucker' you catch. Everyone knows that the sawdust men come to grief very often, through the work of postal detectives. The reason is simple enough. The green goods men want to make too much out of each green horn they catch. The man who fin is he is out $103 will naturally make a kick, and on his complaint we can go to work and stop the swindlers' mail and arrest them." "It is quite a different thing, however, when a man has only lost 25 cents to some swindling and bogus advertisement," he went on. "The public, generally, is not aware that our powers under the law are extremely limited. No matter how many petty frauds are perpetrated through the mails, we cannot take the initiative. A formal complaint must be made by some victim. This is so well known that year by year the number of petty swindles is constantly on the increase. Human nature is tuch that no man likes to ncknewledoe that he is an infernal fool for 25 cents, so these swindlers wax fat. The general plan of all these workers is simple enough. They insert through one of the large adver tising agencies in say i.0 newspapers scat tered throughout the United States and Canada and hire a postoffice box to which they have their mail addressed. "The 'ad' is to the effect," he explained, "that by sending 10 to 25 cents in stamps to the advertiser that the sender will be ap pointed as an agent for the sale of some thing or another that will bring he or she in $40 or $50 a week income, with little or no labor. Others are that by sanding similar sums receipts will be forwarded for the core of baldness, toothache, gout and a hundred other ills that the flesh is heir to, too. 'I he fools who inclose their money in a majority of eases never receive even an answer to their communications, but sometimes the charity of an answer and a postage stamp is returned. But the answer generally makes the man sorry that he ever received it. I he bald-headed man is advised from Philadol phia to "buy our hair tonic," the fellow with the toothache to fill his mouth with water and hug a stove till it boils, and to the man with gout to live on a dime a day and work hard for it. "Perhaps the best joker of the whole crowd is the fellow who is now advertising all over the south and southwest 'how to make $40 a week during the World's fair.' He only charges 10 cents in stamps for his great secret, and his mail every day fills a good-sized sack. He religiously answers every correspondent, with the following brief response: 'Dear air, just do as 1 do.' Of course, even the victim enjoys the joke, as it only costs 10 cents." "Many people wonder that the costoffioe will not redeem its own stamps from in- er dividuals as is the case in England. The Ii chief reason is that by keeping postage n stamps out of circulation, as the equivalent h of money, there is some kind of a check ce placed on these petty frauds. In England, tl wh-eo, as has been said, stamps are bought o up to ten shillings, or about two dollars and fi a half of our money, the use of the mails for b purposes of fraud is simply rampant. Un fortunately, within the laest five years this class of stamp brokers has come into ex- ti istence all over the union. They buy stamps A at a discount of from five to ten per cent. This hap given rise to a species of petty crime that was almost unknown a decade ago- -that is the stealing of stamps by ofee f boys who are intrusted with the mailing of letters by their employers. When there was no market for the stamps, there was no v object for their theft, but now there are o close to a half hundred boys doing time at fi the various reformatory institutions for the b crime. c "Another fraud, I can hardly say on the g postoffce, has obtained through the last b few years considerable proportions. It is t the taking of mail matter left on the top of i mail botes in our streets under the idea that it had been intrusted to Uncle Sam. Nothing is in the care of the postoffice de partment unless it is actually deposited in s the receptacles provided for that purpose. It seems to be a general error of the public I that when they cannot get a valuable par- e eel into a street box, that they have legally mailed it when they have placed it on topof 1 the box. There is a regular gang of petty r thieves on the west side, in the neighbor- i hood of Sixth, Seventh and Eighth avenues, between Fourteenth and Thirty-third I streets, the great retail dry goods district, who make it their business to rob the con- 1 fiding public who place articles of value on 1 top of the boxes provided for mail." "How is it," asked the reporter, "that Anthony Comatoek, who is a postal inspec tor, seems to be able to cause arrests, and ocnasionally seaure convictions when the postal laws have been violated in the ways you have related, and you tell me your hands are prnatically tied?" "Anthony Comstock, it is true, as postal inspsotor, can do no more, nor exercise any more authority than is exercised by any man who works under Mr. James in his office. Comstock is a postal Inspector only to help him in his work. In point of fact, he is a state officer more than a federal one, and the very things you admire are performed under the authority of the state rather than the federal government. Mr. Comstock has made vain efforts to have his powers enlarged by congress. Daring the last session he instigated a bill tending to suppress private postoffices, which opened the door as widely for the use of the mail for both immoral and fraudulent pur poses. 'I he bill was promptly killed in committee, and poor Anthony was left. Of course this was just, right and proper, though it might not seem so at first view. In this country and in England a man's mail is considered sacred. No letter ad dressed teo man, .woman or child can be opened by any postal ofliial unless it reaches the dead-letter office. In the words of Sardon's play of 'Diplomacy,' 'For a citizen to open a letter not addressed to him is, in the eyes of society, an infa my, and in the eyes of the law a felony.' "Of course." continued the inspector, "this rule does not apply to miners in school, nor to convicts in orison, nor to people who have ferfeited their civil f rights, either temporarily or permanently." "A great stumbling block in the way of catching the men who advertise to send books of a lewd kind, is that the people e who send for them never get them, and are naturally not going to get themselves into s jail for their non-delivery." e "How about the lotteries?" "Well, the fact is, that for several years w past the lotteries have not bothered the h mails very much. The lotteries have been n using the express companies as a means of y trensportieg their tiekets and circulars." "Is there any means"' queried the re-. a porter, "of stepping the petty frands g through the mails?" io "None whatever, as long as every letter " must be delivered unopened to any address is and so long is men would rather lose a a quarter than squeal about it." ig A MIllion Friends.

In promulgating esoteric cogitations or articulating superficial sentimentalities and philosophical or psychological obser vations, beware of olatitudinous ponder osity. Let your statements possess a clari fied conciseness, compacted comprehensi bleness, coalescent consistency and a concentrated cogency. Eschew all con glomeratiena of flatulent garrulity, jejque babblement and asinine affectations. In trying to impress upon others the superior ity of the Wisconsin Central lines, and why you and so many others use this thorough fare from St. Paul and Minneasolla and Duluth and Ashland to Milwaukee, Chicago and points east and south, it is not neces sary to use jawbreakers. Let your extem poraneous desoantings and unuromeditated expatiations have intelligibility and vera cicus vivacity, without rhodomontado or thrasonical bombast. Bedulondy avoid all all polysyllabic profundity, psittaceous vac uity, ventriloquial verbosity and vandilo quent vapidity, shun double entendree, prurient jaeosity and pestiferous profanity, obscurant or apparent. In other words, talk plainly, natumally, sensibly, and truth fully say the Wiseonsin Central lines is the route, and that ends it. Thousands of buffering Women.
