give the board any right to remit taxes

wrong; for people who pay np promptly

POSTAL KID TAPE.
Why Registered Mall Is Delayed In this
In the Albuquerque postoQlce last week
there were at one thus seventy-live regis
tered packages destined for Santa Fe.
The postouloe force there could not, or at
least did not, attempt to handle the regis
tered mall promptly. Some ot it lay
there four dHys before forwarded to It Its
destination. This congestion of regis
tered mail at Albuquerque is not alto
gether due to large amount of regis
wren nusiness mat naturally goes
through the Albuquerque postotllce. It
Is largely traceable to Uncle Sam's red
tape. Of the excellence ot the postul syg
tern much has been truthfully written
But some parts of this system might be
Improved, aud the registry system Is one
oi inem. for instance, there Is no
earthly reason or seuse la requiring a
registered letter for eastern points,
mailed at Cerrllloe, to be seut fifty miles
In the opposite direction, to Albuquerque,
before starting on its Journey. The sys
tem ot having registered mall for the
east travel from Cerrlilos to Albuquerque
delays It not less than tweuty-seven
hours, aud In some lustauces, as was the
cose lost week, as much as four days.
We do not believe that it can be estub-
Itshed as a fact that the system of having
eastern regisierea man seui nrty miles
u 1 lie wrong uirectiou contributes any
thing to Its safety or sure delivery.
