Before tint time the authorities b"lleo

Acting on the report that a new natural

city within the next few months, the
members of tho House Committee on Mu

Washington. Dec. II -It is probable that
the dismissal of James Keller, president
of the City I,ett-r Carriers' Association,
and Frank H. Cunningham, president of
the Rural letter Carriers' Associition.
will forco those organizations to elect new
presidents. The membership of the two organiza
tions is made up of bona-fide letter car
riers. The dismissal of Keller and Cun
ningham leaves the two associations with
presidents who are no longer Government
emploves. and who are inoligiblo bv rea
son of their removal from office.
Cunningham -vainly tried to anticipate
the action of the Postmaster General by
resigning. Two days before Genera
Wynne dismissed him he sent In his res
ignation to Fourth Assistant rostmister
General Bristow, but the latter refusd to
accept it, and recommended that ho be
ir Cunningham's resignation had ben
accepted he would still be eligible for the
rrosidency of the National Association of
Rural Carriers. Two vears ago former
President John Powers, of the Xntionai
City Iyottr Carriers' AssocHtlon. resigned
to accept that office. But there Is every
difference between resignation and dis
mlesal. The officials of the Post-onic IJepait
mont said to-day that Cunningham and
Keller had no -tatus before the depart
ment, and would not bo leeognized If thev
appeared there in th interests of thelr
organizatlons. With officials who are dis
credited before the department, the as
sociation having nothing to do but elect
President Keller was Recn bv a no
public reporter to-dav, but refrained from
an expression of opinion.
"Until I hae a conference with the
Executive Committee of the Carriers' As

to my plan". I was not at all surprised
at the action of tho Portmastcr General.

causing headache, backache, bowel ir

accompanied by jaundice, where these
liver poisons are so abundant as to give
