Postmaster General's Plans

> ______
r Aims to Establish a Parcels Post
! System.
| Explains What Is Proposed in the
Readjustment of
Postmaster General Hitchcock has al>
ready formulated his plan of campaign in
behalf of the postal service this winter.
It contemplates three important measures?a
readjustment of the rates of post
age. especially muse governing tue second
class of mall matter; the preparation
; of the postal service for the parcels post
system, not only on rural routes, but in
cities that have the free mail delivery
system, as well as on railway and steamboat
routes, and a change In the plan of
compensating railroads for the transportation
of-the mails and a readjustment of
the compensation paid.
Public Benefit Sought.
"There seems to be. In some quarters at
least, a disposition to believe that the
Post Office Department has some old
score to pay or else Is conducting operations
for its own benefit at the expense
of the railroads and the publishing Interests
of the country," said the Postmaster
General today, when asked as to
his plans for the postal service for the
"We are not endeavoring to raise postage
rates to roll up a profit, nor are we
trying to deprive any one of what Justly
belongs to him. But we are endeavoring,
according to a general plan, which lias
been carefully considered and thought
out to the finish, to readjust conditions
which have worked injustice to the general
public and even to the railroads
themselves." he continued.
"The whole plan has uppermost in its
design the benefit of the public at large.
Those who do not know, or knowing do
not take the trouble to give it the consideration
which it has received by the
department, are prone to overlook this
fact. Let us give It a cursory review
and see if there is anything really unjust
in it to any one."
Mr. Hitchcock then said that when he
came into the department as Postmaster
General he had already formed certain
ideas for the improvement of the service,
with the object of having it give the
greatest amount of benefit to the greatp?t
niinthor nf nontilA urithnnt In anv wnv
v 11 w I v? uta J * ' * J
njuring the rights of any one.
As first assistant postmaster general
during the Roosevelt admlnistiation he
had become reasonably familiar with the
conditions, he said, and the first thing
that impressed him as necessary was the
reorganization of the department and the
curtailment of unnecessary expense, not
only there, but in the outside service.
Deficit Wiped Out.
"We had first to set our own house in
order," he said, "and then we would be
prepared to push tL. improvement outside."
This, he said, was done, and with
all the means then at the command of
the department it was practically demonstrated
that the postal service could be
made self-sustaining and that not only
could the big deficiency that had accumulated.
amounting to almost $18,000,OCO
be wiped out, but that ^wlth toe improvements
effected a surplus could be
realized without in any way impairing
the efficiency of the service. "This, '
said the Postmaster General, "has actually
been accomplished. It is not a matter
open for argument. It is res adjuaicata.
Postal Banks Established.
"Now then," he continued, "what was
the next step? For years the department
had advocated a postal savings system.
Postmaster General Meyer not only advocated
it. but. he worked hard to secure
the passage of a law providing for it.
Well, we secured that law. We framed
the regulations along lines largely original.
Soon the system will be in operation
in every presidential post office In the
country. At all of them It Is working
smoothly and without friction of any
kind. We have already gathered in upward
of *5.000.000 in postal savings,
every tent of which is gwarded by the
honor of the United States of America.
Have you stopped to think of the magnitude
of this accomplishment? And do
you realize that the system ts operating
today practically without complaint or
criticism? Not only that, but ue have
won over the banks themselves to Its
support, and many which, before it was
put in operation, saw all sorts of danger
and objection are now its stanch advocates.
Second Class lltail Bates.
"We have heard some hard things said
of the department about the second class
mail question. There has been much in
the way of misrepresentation, due, let ue
believe, to seltlsli interest or to misinformation.
"We are not trying to increase the
rates of postage. We are not trying to
run the department at a profit. We are
not trying to roll up a big surplus for
personal aggrandizement. What we are
trying to do is to furnish the best postal
service possible at cost?nothing more.
We don't believe it is right that the general
public should be denied privileges
which it might have or that it should be
unfairly taxed for a special Interest. We
are not unmindful of the indispensable
; advantages of the press to the country
; for educational and other purposes. But
we do think the time has come for a
reasonable discrimination.
"December 1, according to the terms of
the law, the President's special commission.
whose personnel cannot be questioned.
will be prepared to submit its report
upon this troublesome question.
Aside from the question of postage rates,
it is the purpose to submit to Congress a
recommendation for the revision of the
present statutes, especially those affecting
second-class mall matter.
Reduction of Expense Sought.
"Our experience in a limited way in the
dispatch of magazines by fast freight Instead
of in the more expensive way they
were formerly sent has taught that the
1 estimated cost of former years for the
transportation of second-class mall matter
must now be reduced. We do not
i want a high rate of postage, but we do
want to reduce expenses and we are succeeding.
"Our main object is to readjust the
rates so as not to tax the whole public
for Its mall matter In order that a special
class and a comparatively small one
when compared to the general public
.. U. .... 1* .. ~ 11 1-J

than cost. Personally, I am more anxious
to reduce the cost of postage on the
mall matter carried for the whole people
than I am to increase the rate on second
class mall matter. I favor a decrease in
' postage that will benefit all the people,
1 and all that has been done or aimed to
be done thus far tends in that direction.
i "We cannot look for the cent-a-letter
I rate of postage this year, however. It Is
manifestly impossible to give the people
the benetflt of this rate of postage for leti
ter mail unless we can lop 'off unneces
sary expenses,
Payment to the Hallways.
"Careful investigation by the depart
ment has shown that the present method
of computing the pay of railroads for
. carrying the mail is unscientific and un.
reliable. It is impossible with trial
weighings for ninety days to correctly
determine what the compensation should
be for carrying the mails for four years.
The mails might be padded during the
weighing period, and that would work injustice
to the department and consequently
to the people at large. Or they might
not represent even a fair average of the
weight of mall carried, and that would
work an injustice to the railroads.
"For years there has been more or less
comment in certain quarters reflecting
upon the detriment's dealings with rail- !
roads in the matter of mail transporta- i
tion. We have given the subject the most
careful consideration, and now we are
I convinced that the only just and scientific
I way to estimate the compensation to be
paid for mail transportation is to pay
for the car space actually used for that
The New Plan.
"The department has not attempted
to arbitrarily set a- price upon this
space. It has called upon the railroads
themselves to furnish the data to show
its cost to them. These data have been
carefully compiled and checked up by
the department, and It is now an easy
matter to determine what it costs the
rallroals to carry the mail. We feel
this cost should be paid them and an
increase of 6 per cent above it as a
fair compensation, with further consideration
for special, fast or exceptional
"The old plan of computation does
not safely provide a fair basis for -increased
business, and yet every year
there is a great increase in the amount
of mail matter carried over former
years. The railroads enjoy many advantages
at the hands of the government.
The very fact that they carry
the United States mails Is a protection
to them and their propery. This should
be given some consideration In estimating
their compensation for service
performed for the government.
"The new plan proposes that the railroads
themselves shall render at stated .
Intervals reports of the cost to them of J
the mail service, and by this the rate to
be paid them for mail space can be easl- i
ly computed. With space as the cri- ,
terion, increase in the growth of the serv- <
ice can be fairly and accurately provided
for. This plan ought to have a great <
moral effect of immense advantage to
the railroads themselves, for It will put <
an end to suspicion against them which '
doubtless has frequently been the cause 1
of hostile legislation against'them in the 1
states. 1
Parcels Post Proposed. <
"We have successfully inaugurated a <
postal savings system, and its operation i
is admirable. In the same way we can
inaugurate a parcels post system. I have
given a great deal of thought to this
subject. 1
"To attempt to take over the express ;
business of the country at one bound ]
would be disastrous. It would clog the
malls and inflict irreparable Injury upon
the business interests of the country,
which must above all things be guaran- j
teed at all times a safe and certain
service of unwavering regularity.
"But we can prepare to take over this
service. We can experiment with it, as
is proposed, upon the rural routes, confining
it at the outset to local mail only .
on those routes. Gradually we can '
equip and organize the service to meet ]
the demandss and then extend it '
in the light of experience to a wider '
field. In the same way, we can begin '
such a service in the free delivery cities, !
operating it much as the local pareels
delivery system Is now operated. Experience
will teach what Is necessary and
the service can be extended.
"Last year a recommendation was sent j
to Congress providing for an appropria- i
tion for experimental service of this kind.
It never got out of the committees to
which it was referred. This year we
have asked for specific appropriations,
and Congress must give consideration to
the subject and say 'yes' or 'no* to our
request. Carefgl consideration by Congress
of the plan proposed we feel cer- ;
tain will show its advantages and result
in favorable action. The people are entitled
to this service just as soon as the
postal service ?an be equipped for it and 1
handle it without detriment to the mail
service proper.
Appropriations Desired.
"If we can secure the appropriations
asked we can organize the service for Its
new task and properly equip it. The idea
has been worked out to a finish in the
department. We have asked for $50,000
to meet the preliminary expense of establishing
it on rural routes; $50,000 to try
it in free delivery cities, and $50,000 for
investigation and experiment with it on
railway and steamboat routes.
"We have saved nearly $18,000,000^ by
putting the postal service on a business
basis. We are surely entitled to the small
fraction of this great sum which we shall
ask for the benefit of the people at large.
"Thus it will be seen that each measure
advocated by the department, against
many of which there has been unreasonable
and at times bitter opposition, was
in the line of an advancement for the
general good. They are all essential features
In one design to give the HO.WKMMX) I
people of this country everything in the i
line of the best postal service in the j
world, an up-to-date service that will
furnish the greatest privileges possible j
and proper to all without exceptional I

Second Lieutenant Will Receive
His Assignment to
Duty Tomorrow. !
Second Lieut. Frank Bloom, formerly a
private in the .Id Field Artillery, stationed
at Fort Myer, Va.. whose advancement
to commissioned rank in the army
has been attended with so much difficulty,
will know tomorrow his assignment.
He will remain in the field artillery.
President Taft intervened in Mr.

get a commission failed. ,
Former Sergts. Edward L. Hoffman,
lllh Infantrj'; Robert G. Brady, 11th Cavalry,
and C. B. Rucker, tith Infantrj', who
have also passed examination for commission's,
will receive their assignments to
duty as second lieutenants at the same
time. Bach of them will remain In the
service In which he served in the rauks.
Ten honor graduates of colleges are
also to be assigned to duty as second
lieutenants. All have passed the physical
examination and their diplomas have been
accepted in-lieu of mental examination.
They are: H. J. M. Smith of Norwich
University, Northfleld, Vt.; L. T. Gerow
of Virginia Military Institute, Lexington,
Ky.; A. G. Thomason of Pennsylvania

There are onlj' ten colleges where military
instructors are installed which are
granted the privilege of nominating a second
lieutenant to the army annuallj*.
While these candidates, after physical
I tests, have been accepted on their diplomas
heretofore and in the present instance.
hereafter thej' are to be subjected
to the same examinations as other candl
In assigning the enlisted candidates
and the honor graduates to the several
arms of the service and to particular regiments,
the same rule is followed as obtains
In the case of grauates at West
Point. The ass gnment of each group is
made to the several arms in proportion
to its strength in the mobile army, and
the assignments to particular regiments
are made In accordance with the number
of vacancies existing at the time; that is,
the regiment that has the greatest number
of vacancies in the grade of second
lieutenant gets the first assignments

on the prisoner directly, but upon those
who are called upon to suffer by reason
of the prisoner's wrongdoing, and these
united efforts mark the onward progress
of organized co-operation on the part of
various organizations which are justly entitled
to and are freely given our highest
encomiums of praise, because of the
magnificent results they have accomplished.
"The enactment of such wise legislation

discipline and restraint an adequate
punishment for the offender; the securing
of the proper and regular employment
of the prisoner in prison under wise
state law: the obtaining of a rightful
portion of the prisoner's earnings for
the use of his dependent family; the
systematic investigation of their real
needs and the furnishing of prompt relief
to the worthy, and possible effort for

things for which we strive and which
we are achieving."

Location of the Range.
The range at Winthrop Is about sii
miles below the proving grounds at Indian
Head- As the Wakefield passed tht
proving grounds on the down trip a shot
was fired from a fourteen-inch gun. The
concussion was so great as to rattle the
whole boat, and the shot brought every
lad of the entire UO hurrying to the side
for a look at the gun that was capable
of making such a racket.
The range is directly in the line of fire
from Indian Head. Capt. l,ay was advised
Friday that there would be no
practice with the big guns yesterday, but
notwithstanding the notification several
shots were fired from the b g fourteeninch
p'.eca, the noise of the explosions
booming and roaring among the hills fur
several minutes after the shell had pass
