Postal Officials Denv That Post
master General Burleson Already
Has Beached Decision.
Charges recently mrde by persons
in touch with the Pneumatic Tube
companies of Philadelphia, Boston,
Chicago and New York, which asserted
that. Postmaster General Burleson already
has decided to abolish the pneumatic
system in these cities, are refuted
at the Post Office Department. f
It was stated in the charges that Mr.
Burleson proposed to substitute for the
tube systems motor car service, and
that the tube companies and business
interests in each of the cities were
strongly opposed to such a course.
At the office of the first assistant postmaster
general, which office has charge
of the tube system, it was stated last
night that an investigation in the
tube system has been going on for
nearly eight months, and is merely
being conducted as are the investigations
in any other branch of the service.
It was stated that naturally those
interested in the tube contracts have
regarded the investigation with suspicion,
but it was definitely asserted
that no action had been taken nor was
any contemplated in the near future.
Chief Inspector Koons, vice chairman
of the committee which has charge
of the investigation, stated that the
final report of the committee had not
been made, but would be in the near
"I know nothing of any such plan as
that of abolishing the tube systems,"
said the chief inspector. "I should say
that some one interested in the contracts
had been drawing on their imagination."
