By vetoing the poatofflce appropria

continued service ot the postoffice

the cities of New York. Brooklyn. Chi
cago, Boston, St. touts and Philadel
phia, President Wilson brought to an
?nd the lona ficht against the tubes.

Automobiles will take the place of
tlie tubes In the cities named.
The House sustained ?he veto by
.he vote of 187 to I1-. and within a few
? ? menta after taking this action
raeaed a new bill In which the appro
? ? m tlon intended for the* tube service
is eliminated.
The bill was then hurried to the

tubes are uaed have al way? been able
to muster enough vote? co defeat the
Postmaster General's recommenda

to make an appropriation for the

to cont?nue tbe tube aervlce' and the
House, by a majority of one vote, ac
cepted the Senate's amendment Fri
day. At that time-. Chairman Moon,
of the House Poetofflce Committee,
made the prediction that the bill
would be vetoed because it contained
this provision.
Notwithstanding thl? prophecy,
the veto of the President came as
a surprise. Tbe bill did not reach
him until after noon and barely
more than two hours elspsed from
the time of It? delivery at the White
House until It was brought back
to the House by a meseengcr from
the President, who announced that
the bill had met with his disap

The President*? rea?on? for dis
approving the further use of the
tubes followed very closely the
recommendation? made by Post
maeter Burleson In hia annual re
ports and In hi? statements to com

they are that the tube? are unre
liable, that th? service Is subject
to frequent breakdowns resulting in
loss of mall, and that closer <*on
