order experts of the Poatoaßea Department to be
held in this city or October II every phase of the
system will be considered in detail, with a view to
reducing expenses and increasing the efficiency of

be a suggestion that identification of the holder of

payable at any money order office, thus making
them practically currency.
By direction of Postmaster General Hitchcock
the conference also will consider the following
questions: Whether more than one indorsement

the remitter of the payment of an order; charging
a fee for issuing a warrant for an Invalid order, or
for the extension of th* hours of the money order
business.
