The first to advocate and secure
the adoption of a uniform rate of
postage was Sir Rowland Hill, who
died 40 years ago today. He lived
Sto see his plan adopted by nearly all
great nations. It was in 1835 that
Hill turned his attention to postal
reform. At that time the charge foir
the transportation of letters varied
with the distance. Hill collected
stalistics to prove that the principal
expense of letter carriage was in re
ceiving and distributing andt that tlie
cost of conveyance differed so little
with the distance that a uniform rate
was farest to all concerned. Al!
lBritish officialdom was against the
change, but Hill's pamphlet present
ed the reform so favorably that pub
ic lic demand forced its adoption. For
a short time the rate on letters was
four-pence. but in 1840 the uniform
rate of one penny for letters under
half an ounce in weight was put into
' effect and postage stamps were first
issued to provide a means of pre
payment. A commercial depression
) followed the adoption of the scheme
but in spite of that fact the postoffice
revenue went on increasing. and HillI
was fully justified.

Report of Twelfth Federal
Reserve District's Review
Shows Crops and Live
stock in Excellent Shape.
( United Press Northwest Letter.)
San Francisco, ('al.. Aug. 27.-
i- The twelfth federal reserve district's
('eview of general business and agri
cultural conditions, whicih was made
public, reports that the harvesting
of grain has been practically com
pu pleted in the southern part of the
rd district. It. is in full swing in the
h district's nortlhern portion.
"Less damage to grain, on the
ys whole, has resulted from the unfav
30 orable conditions reported last month
ad than was anticipated, although there
of are admittedly serious losses in Utah
n- and the dry-farmt areas of southern
tm Idaho," the review states. The fol
lowing are excerpts:
ef "The estimated Pacific coast lhop
tg crop of 160,000 bales will be sonie
ia- what exceeded if the damage by lice,
ne apparent in some sections of Cali
he fornia, does not becoile mnore seri
es ons."
it "In Oregon and Idaho, priunes are
od dropping badly, but the California
ur crop will probably exceed previous
as estimates."
ch "A heavy crop of hay is being cut
" in Oregon and Washington, and a
iiu very light one in Utah. Further cut
us tings in parts of California. Idaho
he and Utah will be seriously curtailed
ice by a. shortage-6f irrigation water."
es "Livestock throughout the district
is reported in good t.o excellunt con
tat dition, the market is fairly active un
od der a lower range of prices, and tilhe
ay banks are reported to be able to ex
he tend the necessary credit to prevent
iii the forcing of stock on the market.
of Figures are not yet available for this
year's clip of wool, but incomplete
it reports indicate a yield slightly in
excess of 1918."
"The gathering of deciduous
fruits, with the exceptlion of prunes
Sand apples, is at its h.eight through
out the entire district. Pears are
ais of excellent quality, but pieaclles a
little under normal, both as to size
and quality. The apple crip shows
on a marked increase over that of 1918
nt and the quality is unnsually good."
"n ..There is a pre-ssing detnalud for
on lumber, and mills are working nu
der heavily increased costs of pro
duction. Prices have increased fromi
i $4.00 to $6. l0 er thouisand."
ig- "Labor cotlditiolls on tlhe whole
us are fairly settled in the district. A
of feeling of unretst is llnifested in
rI'- ..r..irr^v.n

FOURTEEN REASONS WHY
FS TInRV1V NWI1N AMFRII
dI ILIU U li
n Paris..- i By M\ail. I - -Dr. Mary
'as Mills Puatrick, president of Constan-i
ng tinoplo Girls' college, and one of thea
r'- best known American authorities on
ire Turkey and the near east. where she
apt [has resided for years, has prepared
to- for the United Preis the following'
the statenient, of fourteen reason why the
u: UnViited States should accept, a man
datory over Turkey:
1. Peace in the near east cannot
be brotght about by force, but nmusti
comne from within. All the people of
the near east would wecroire an
Am'nsican mandatory.
. 'Phe Moslems predominate in
the Turkish empire. numbering from
14 to 15 millions. according to vary
ing estimates. Should the allied
'owers desire to send n mandatory to
Turkey. the Turks would prefer an
Ameireau mandatory to one from any
other nation for two reasons. They
think that other nations would never
resign a. mandatory once undertaken.
but that America, having taught the
people how to govern themselves.
would retire and leave thema their
independence. They also prefer
Americans to deal with. because they
<are lsmore demiocratic.
3. The Greeks residing in the
Turkish empire number about two
millions. They are citizens of the
Turkish empire and are called Otto
man Greeks. unless they as individ
uals possess Greek citizenship. The
Ottoman Greeks would prefer to live
under a Greek government, but if
that is imlpossible, they would warm
ly welcome an American ma.ndatory.
5. American methods of govern
meut separate politics and religion.
The union of church and state is one
of thlie ererost causes of discord and
hatted in the near east. The remov
al of political control front all re
ligious organizations would tend to
promote peaceful relations between
the different nationalities, while at
the same time both Mohammiedani
and Christians would be protected in
the free exercise of their religion.
s6. A,-n Americani ianladatory ove'
Turkey would introduce American
- methods of education, which teach
people the self-respect that conduces
to peaceful relations.
of 7. The people of Turh-ey are di
is- vided up by the use of different lan
ere guages. An American mandatory
the would emphasize the English lan
guage, and introduce a common
I means of communication.
S. An American mandatory over
en- all of the Turkish empire (with the
the possible exception of Mesopotamia:
