These cards will be tilled tp~ with the name of each delegate when they arrive and con tain the name of the hotel or person who will entertain them, the rates to be charged and directions how to reach the place they will stop at.

MILLIONS OF STAMPS A Glimpse at the Bareaa of Engrav ing and Printing. ? ? BUSIEST PllCE III THE UHITED SWTES ] Interesting Talk With Director Claude M. Johnson. A REMARKABLE RECORD Washington has Ion* enjoyed the familiar nickname, "The Workshop of the (Jovcrn ment." but never before Ih its history did It deserve it more than at present. In the war of the rebellion it was a lively spot In this regard, but during that unfortunate period there was not as much concentration at the national capital as? ther?* at present. The nation was much smaller and had not yet established its own Rreat manufactories here. This was notably the case with th* production of its securities, such as bonds, currency and internal revenue stamps. The present magnificent bureau of engrav ing and printing was then in its Infancy and private firms and corporations did ihU Mr. flnndc M. Johimon. all-important work for the government. Today all this is changed. Kven the post age stamps used annually by the thou sands of millions in the I'nited State,* are made in Washington, and at the present time the bureau of engraving and printing Is the most active beehive of Industry in the whole country'. The regular demands of the public business upon its facilities even in the days of placid peace are enor mous, but the emergencies of war have in creased them to a prodigious degree. A reporter for The Star spent an interesting hour at the bureau yesterday morning in company with Mr. Claude M. Johnson, the capable and energetic director of the grer.t institution. Ulrrrtnr Johnson's Work. It was not only an interesting but an in structive hour, as Director Johnson did not pause a moment when his attention was re quired by the demands of his office. Super intendents of the various branches came and went; messengtrs laid letters and doc uments before him to be signed, and signed they were at once. The conversation with the report* r was carried on in the inter vals. arid when Mr. Jotyison was otherwise engaged as describe d a good opportunity was g:ven to study the man who has proven completely by the record he has made sin:? he atfumcd his present posi tion that ihe government can do its own work better and cheaper and more satis factory than any firm or corporation in existence. He accomplished this in (he face of the most powerful Influences. Rank rote companies and stamp manufacturing corporations have wielded potent power heritofore, and It is easily remembered what a tremendous effort was made to pre vent the bureau from securing the contract to print the postage stamps of the coun try. Director Johnson was victorious, how ever, and the 3,(HSMWO.OOO-marvelous ,s that number?and more postage stamps produced by the bureau every year abund antly proved that his confidence was not misplaced. When the war revenue bill was passed and the demand for adhesive inter nal revenue stamps was imminent, every corporation in the country doing such work clamored for contracts and backed up its demands with great Influence. Kven the officials of the Treasury Depart ment were inclined to think that the bureau of engraving and printing would not be adequate in facilities for the purpose, but Director Johnson declared that such was not the case, and the results prove that he was right. Activity at the Rorrau. The conversation this morning, fragment ary as it necessarily was, began by the re porter inquiring as to the number of em ployes engaged and the hours of work. ?'We have 1,713 employes today," replied Director Johnson, "and we work every minute of the twenty-four hours. I cannot too highly commend the leal and willing ness of the force In this emergency. All are capable and all are exj>erienced. To show you what we can accomplish, I need only state that from s a.m. yesterday to K a.m. today we printed from new plates ?1,2?io,U0o Internal revenue stamps. No other establishment on the face of the earth could have cione this. In addition we imprinted 011 millions of postage stamp* the letters 'I.R.' Our gumming capacity does not equal our printing at present; doesn't exceed 1H,<X*UNI0 stamps per day, but this difference will not exist in a day or two. Xrurly Two Hundred Millions. "We will deliver up to tonight," he con tinued, "to th? commissioner of internal revenue 170,0<f0,00<> stamps available for issue under theiiiw act, although the law was not passed until June 13. Our own people have uor.e this work. Green hands are not productive. The employes have to be instructed here." "How about the other work of the bu reau?" "The demands are unusual. We are printing something over 3,01111,000,000 post age stamps a year, in addition, the na tional currency orders are unusually large. For the last forty days they have averaged 35,000, when the customary average is but "The plates from which the internal reve nue stamps are printed." continued Direct or Johnson, "are made as rapidly as pos sible. and when one Is completed it Is sent to a hand press. When four have been fin ished they are placed In a steam press. Every plate has been producing stamps every minute since its completion. Saniber of Stamps Weeded. "In addition to these stamps." he contin ued, "we have Imprinted the letters X R.' on 85,000,000 postage stamps. I am Inclin ed to the belief that we will be required to print as many adhesive Internal revenue stamps as we do postage stamps, or 3,000, 000.000. These stamps are of various de nominations, from an eighth of a cent to fifty dollars. Mr. Sullivan"?the assistant director, who had Just come into the di rector's room?"does not agree with ms In this, but when we come to consider the railroad tickets, Pullman car tickets, tele grams, bottles of wine, bank checks, prom issory notes, drafts, deeds, mm tfgss ud proprietary medicines that will require these stamps I am pretty certain my fig ures will be found nearly right." "My Impression Is," said Director John son in conclusion, "that the use of Imprtat ed stamps will be unnecessary after today." leeklsg Oat for Their Comfort. During the reporter's visit he had an ad mirable opportunity to witness the regard which Director Johnson baa for the 00m fcrt of his employes. He directed a me* "ensrer to send Mr. Smith to htm When he latter oame Mr. Johnson direct**] him ^L?l*<T *,w,rtc "tftii at once in the pton room downstairs. n/JT* J!"""; ^ "ln,,w-t ??>h??rable at Hahf ,Johnson.
