P. 0. DEFICIENCY FUND. I Postmaster General Reports Upon ii; the Results of Economic Plans Recently Inaugurated. Postmaster General Hitchcock announc- ! ed today that he would he able within a & few days to oover back into the Treasury 14,000,000 of the $10,500,000 granted him by Congress as a deficiency appropriation !for the fiscal year of 1010. It Is not, the : Postmaster General said, that this sum ; indicates a surplus in postal revenues for j the year, but it does represent a saving I resulting from increased revenues and j decreased expenditures made possible by : business reforms that have been put in ; operation. Hopeful of Besults. i I There is at present available of the-de_ ficlency appropriation $6,000,000. The ; " Postmaster General believes that with j $ the possibility of increased receipts and j | the same or a still larger percentage of : I saving in administering the service lie ; will be able to round out the year with : | $2,000,000 of this stpm, thus enabling him Z for the first time in the history of the ; t department to turn beck the remaining ::: I $$,000,000. Mr. Hitchcock said when the reforms : !* were Instituted by him he had not the remotest idea that so great a saving would result from them, and he is cor- : respondlngly elated at the showing made : ; the first half o-f the fiscal year. It is j inot impossible, the department officials j say, that there may be a still further re- ; turn of money to the Treasury during ; thnt th? Dostal deflcit. ' Hit- J V?* ? --? ? which last year amounted to the enor- j | mous sum of 117,000,000, may be cut to J as low as $5,000,000. | ACCEPT HEALER'S WORD POSTAL OFFICIALS BECOGNIZE CHBISTIAN SCIENTIST. Not as Practicing Physician, But as :: Trustworthy Witness to Illness. liow far a certificate of a practitioner : of Christian Science may be accepted as ; meeting the demands of the postal laws : and regulations in accounting for the ab- ; sence through illness of a government clerk was one of the matters that occu- : pied the attention of Chief Clerk Weed of : the Post Office Department today. A Herk of th? dennrtment had been ab- *' sent from her duties nearly a month. |: | That the time might be charged against :| her sick leave and not against her an- | nual leave or pay, ahe furnished a certlficate signed by a practitioner of Chris- ; |tian Science. The postal laws and regu- | latlons require among other things that :S applications for extension of leave on ac- J count of sickness must be accompanied j | by the certificate of the attending physi- : * cian, where one was employed, and in all :5 cases where the period of sickness ex- ;$ ceeds five days. If no physician was em- : i ployed, the specific reasons for not em- : | ploying a physician must be stated. Furthermore, In all cases the certificate of g sickness must be made by a regular practicing physician?that is to say, one who t has been regularly licensed to practice ~ . medicine in the District of Columbia. "As the clerk is manifestly in poor Y ? health now," said Chief Clerk Weed in ! passing upon the case, "we shall accept ! the certificate of the Christian Science practitioner, not as that of a regularly j licensed physician, which we understand ; to be the case, hut as a credible evidence ; of the Illness. We make no discrlmina: tlon in matters of faith at all, the questlon arising purely as to whether or not the person signing the certificate was a regularly licensed physician."

' of the fleet swept the sea, which was troubled by a strong: northwest wind, and whenever a target was picked up by the ' beams there was a concentration upon It of the fire of the little three-Inch guns, which are specially mounted for attack upon unarmored craft like torpedo boats. The competition between the crews of the various ships was keen, and the men showed the greatest Interest in the work, although It at times subjected them to riek of life, when it came to boarding the sea-swept rafts which carried the targets in the half-gale which prevailed. Indeed, so heavy was the weather that the big tug Apache, which had started out of the Norfolk navy yard with material needed to repair the damage to the targets, was obliged to turn back before reaching the fleet. Many of the officers and bluejackets were on deck all through Saturday night Imbued with enthusiasm over the splendid work being done.

BOSTON, April 25.?The mystery surrounding the identity of the Harvard alumnus who offered $300,000 to build a new bridge over the Charles river as an approach to the Stadium from Cambridge was cleared when It was learned from a reliable source that Lars Anderson, 'M, of Brookllne, was the man. The proposed bridge would replace the present structure, which has been found Inadequate to accommodate the crowds that flock annually to the Stadium for the foot ball and other games. Objection to the new bridge by tbe TV*r f Department and a few property owners has been overcome, it is said, and an artlstio approach to the big athletic field is assured. Announcement that a Harvard alumnus had offered $300,000 for the purpose was made two years ago, but his name was kept secret until now.
