Postmaster General Designates Com

Postmaster General Burleson jesterday
named a commission to inquire into the
actual financial? physical and working
conditions of the Postofllce Department

ment of this commission comes after
many complaints of mismanagement In
the office of Auditor Kram and It is
promised that the newlj appointed in
vestigating bodv shall dig into everv nook

This commission is to be made up of

of the office of the Auditor have been
more or less hazj. They have embodied
In the main the statement that the audit
1 ing of postal money orders is now far
behind two jears behind. It is said b
some thus laving the government open
to heavy losses through mistakes or chi
canery. One of the points on which the com
plaints were raised was the amendment
inserted in the general deficiency bill
In the Senate some days ago. by which
it was agreed that the 50.000,000 money
orders that now stand unaudited on one
side shall be "arbitrarily" audited.
It was explained by Senator Warren
when the amendment came up -that, the
postal authorities felt that as few mis
takes had been found In going over these
orders, they might be passed.
The complainants hold that this is not
the case and that numerous mistakes
have been found They argue that these
orders average JS each and that thus
400.000,000 of business Is being passed
-without being verified.

Rev Dr. Samuel II Woodrow, pastor
of First Congregational Church, has
been given a unanimous call to the pas
torate of the Pilgrim Congregational
Church of St. Louis, Mo , one of the
largest -and most influential Congrega
tional churches of the West.
A telegram received last night bj Dr.
Woodrow advised him of the unanimous
action of the Pilgrim Church and society
In St. Louis, in Joint meeting last even
ing The call is the result of the work
of a committee- of fifteen of the pastor
ate, of which Mr A. W. Benedict, a
prominent retired business man of St.

church edifice and parish house.
Dr. Woodrow has been pastor of the
First Church for six jears, having come
here from Springfield. Mass., in the
spring of 1907 The problem which he
faced was a new one that of a down
town church, the drift . of population
away from the immediate vicinity and
attendance at the church falling off con
siderably From the first the response
to his ministrv has been a substantial
one, and todaj morning and evening serv
ices are crowded to such an extent that
many stand throughout the service
Missionary offerings of the church have
been largely increased and more than
JH.000 have been raised for general bet
terment. Including a modern Sunday
school room, which was added last 5 ear.
During his pastorate 4".S persons have
been added to the church, a net gain of
over J0V and a total membership of 1,130,
the largest In the history of the church

New York. March 19 Although two
years have elapsed since the Asch build

committee on safety states in Its an

such as would make possible the recur
rence of this tragedy. No more than a
beginning has been made to remedy the
dangerous condition."
Investigation of 433 buildings showed
the stairways to be unsafe in over one
half that number, in three-fourths of
the buildings the emergency exits, out
side 'of fire escapes and outside stairs,
were unsafe. About 50 per cent had
doors which opened Inward or were ob
structed, thus offering some obstacle to
immediate egress. The emergency exits
were even more generally obstructed.

"We'll Win Pennant,"
Says Granville Dickey
Ten-year Old Lad, Seized with Baseball Fever),
Is Brought Home After Runaway Trip
to Charlottesville, Va.
Editor The Washington Herald: '
Mrs. Dickey and I hasten to express to jou our cry sincere
thanks for the tremendous service ou rendered us in giving pub
licity to all the facts in connection with the disappearance of our
boy Granville. His proniptreeoery was due largely to the prom
inence the newspapers of the city gave to the matter. It is a
tremendous thing, to my mind, this action of great journals in
jturning aside from far more important events for the puqo;c
of finding a small boy. For the part ou plajed I cannot be suf
ficiently grateful.
May I ask jou to permit me, through jour columns, to ex
press my keen appreciation of the efficient acthity of the boy
scouts, the police, and the Fort Mjer cavalrymen assigned to the
search by Col. Garrard? I desire also to thank the hundreds of
friends who unselfishly sought for Granville and the many others
who were good enough to send letters and messages of sympathy
to my wife and me.
Very sincerely yours. RAYMOND B. DICKEY.

again, and Mrs Dickey knew that when
her boy made a promise he Intended to
keep it.
when explained, the lad s disappear
ance was not a bit mysterious. On Mon
day afternoon the boy opened his sav
ings bank, pocketed II M, and boarded
a car for Union Station. His car fare
was 5 cents, and a half-fare ticket to
Charlottesville, Va., was Jl 13. When
Granville alighted In CharlottcsUlIe he
did not hae a penn) surplus.
Granville's sole purpose in Jourriejins
to Charlottesville was to witness the
Washington baseball team practicing.
When Granville stepped off the train he
was seen by E. P. Brown, a student in
electrical engineering at the University
of Virginia. Brown questioned the lad,
who said he was waiting to see a "Mr
Jones." Brown believed the child, and
when "Mr. Jones" could not be found
Brown took the child In his care?
Granville watched the Nationals in
practice, chatted with Clark Griffith, and
had confidential talks with "Bill" Mor-
Ie, one of the recruits with the team

In Washington Mr. and 'Mrs. Dickey

change of sentiment waa brought Into
the situation. An omnibus bill is op
posed because It makes easier the politi
cal log-rolling, which makes impossible
a well balanced bill. Trades between
members who desire protection for certain
industries always have been held respon
sible for the special privilege which Mr.
Wilson desires to cut out of the tariff.
Mr. Wilson has said that special priv
ilege breeds trusts, and that trusts breed
corrupt political bosses as well as high
prices en the necessities of life.
President Wilson Is wrorklng In perfect
harmony with Chairman Underwood, of
the Wajs and Means Committee. Chair
man L'nderwood, in view of his 1911 tariff
programme, when bills for individual
schedules were sent through the House,
would seem to be committed to schedule
by bchcdule revision. It Is not known
that Mr. Underwood hag changed bis

fcome of the Democratic leaders de
clare that It will be necessarj" for the
Wajs and Means Committee to present
to the Demoratlc caucus the entire tariff
bill In order that Its relation to the reve
nue necessities of the government may
be approved. But the House organiza
tion will know, without being shown, say
others. that any bill which meets with
the Joint approval of President Wilson
and the majoritj of the Ways and Means
Committee will not call for so radical a
reducUon of the revenue-producing fea
tures of the tariff that the country will
be threatened with a deficit. Besides,
thej- say, the caucus can be reassured
on this point without throwing the entire
bill open to log roiling.
There is little doubt that, whether It
be Introduced schedule by schedule orMn
the farm of an omnibus bill, the tariff
law as proposed by the Ways and Means
Committee can bf put through the Houv
without material change The danger
lurks In the Senate. While an attempt
undoubtedly will be made in the Houm
Democratic caucus bj the low tariff
members to slash the Ways and Means
Committee rates, whether the caucus is
offered one schedule at a time or thw
entire bill, this can be thrashed out
before the bill reaches the House, when
the Democratic organization will be
united And there is little doubt that the
organization at the head of which Mr.
Underwood stands will dominate the
Problem in Senate.
The Semite presents more of a problem.
If the bill goes through the House con

progressive nor low tariff, maj" do as it
sees fit. and If special privilege crcaps

case with the Pajme-AIdrlch law. Presi

vetoing the entire bill, which may con

going on the defensive This was much
the situation in which President Taft
found himself when the Payne-Aldrlch
law was presented to him. He accepted
It for Its good features and the bad
features resulted In a Democratic majoritj-
in the House two years later.
If. however, the Senate receives the
bill, schedule bj- schedule. President
Wilson's Influence will be far more
potent in preventing log rolling. He can
then concentrate his forces upon each
particular schedule and such schedules
as he cannot subscribe to he can veto,
while accepting such as he thinks recon
cilable with his desire for a w ell-balanced

Redfield Is Not Opposed to Rudolph

He has not asked the advice of Sec
retary of Commerce Redfield or Post

Neither of these members has commit
