ALHU 3UKKQUE EVENING CITIZEN.
FRIDAY, MARCH 2, 1906. PAGE SEVCN The First Rose of Summer 1 VVs fw , WVfv CLERKS ARE BUSY WEIGHING MAIL Carried by Santa Fe Trains Running Out of Albu querque. INTERES1ING DATA O.N OPERATION The government weighers of the United stales mail, who are now en gaged in working on Santa Fe trains out of this city, are fast getting taings systemlzed, so that by the time the ninety days' period is up, they will have found a basis upon which to determine "the railroad's pay." The railway mall service for the weighing of mall is divided into four districts, New Mexico and all states and territories west of the Missouri river being In the fourth district. Once every four years, for a period of ninety days, all mail, carried by the trains, Is weighed, for the purpose of ascertaining how much mail is car ried over each railroad, so that a pay basis can be established for the following four years. The amount of mail on board a train, when it leaves Its terminal sta tion, the amount picked up during the run, and the amount carried tnrongh to its terminus, is recorded, and forwarded to the department at . Washington. On the big lines special weighers ar..t hfcsigned to certain cars, imt on the branch lines postal clerks make the record. If pouch mail Is sent out of here as express, Post master Hopkins makes the record. The average amount of mail carried per mile is thus computed, and ihe . raflioads paid accordingly. More Mail, Less Pay. Contrary 'to the general opinion, the more volume of mall carried the Kninller the rate thereon. Five thou sand pounds per day Is the maxi mum for which the government will pay, and this is carried at a smaller Tate per pound than would one hund red pounds. The smaner the amount of mail handled .the higher the rate per pound. "Uncle Sam, in the mail depart ment," said an employe of the local post office, to a Citizen representative today, "Is a royal spender, when It comes to facilitating the rapid deliv ery of mail, and it's the road 'hat gets the mail to its destination quick est that gets Uncle Sam's shekels. "Of course, out f here, we've got to send It over the Santa Fe, ami It looks like a 'cinch' for that road. But look deeper. If the Santa Fe doesn't make what the government thinks is fast enougn time, it Is counted against t'.tem In their endeavor to secure con tracts tor hauling mail out of Chi cago. KansaH City, 'Frisco, etc., where there are rival roads. So you see Albuquerque mall receives as much consideration as any other city's mall." More Than 35,000 Routes. According to a recent report of the postmaster g'eneral, there are more than 35,i"ii routes of domestic mall " Fervlce in operation In the United States. The total length of these routes is 490,948 miles. The num ber of miles traveled a year Is 44j, 744,845. The annual rate of expendi ture for transportation of the mull is 153,07(1,413. The rate of cost a mile Is 11.9 cents. Of the sum expended for domestic mall service, $31,942,1 SO is paid to the railroads. This does not Include the salaries of the mall clerks, which aggregates more than $10,(1(10,(1(10 a year. The count of the ( ieces of n ail handled in the year 1899 showed a total of 7,118,422.840 pieces of first class matter, (!,233, 5(19,885 pieces of all other kinds of matter, making a total of 13.351.992. 725 pieces.

When the yard officers made an investigation no one was in sight. It is thought that yard men or some one employed In the round house is thus amusing himself, but should he be caught "with the good" and fined, It will not be so funny. MUCH CHEAP LABOR COMING FROM MEXICO ONLY LABOR THAT CAN COM PETE WITH JAPANESE FOR RAILROAD WORK, Train No. 10 this morning carried its usual consignment of Mexican peons. The gang numbered about Of ty and was in charge of a well fed, rather intelligent looking Spaniard, who herded his proteges in a manner that reminded one of the fabled story of the slave herder. A dozen boxes of cracKerg and cheese done up in small parcels were put aboard the train at the local station with which, presumably, they were to be fed until they reach their destination. These low-bred Mexicans are the only labor ers who can compete with the hordes of Japanese that are being shipped Into the United States for railroad work. The Tucumacrl Times says; ' A corps of El Paso & Southwestern rail road surveyors are in the city, sur veying out sidetracks and grounds for the establishing on the division ut this point, which is to be moved from Santa Rbsa, In the near future.

PRESSED BRICK PLANT FOR ALBUQUERQUE ALBUQUERQUE PRESSED BRICK A TILE COMPANY TO LOCATE HERE INSTEAD OF ALGODONES. Although a pressed brick plant at Algodones would be or great benefit to Albuquerque, on within the city limits would be of still greater bene fit. This Is what will happen as a result in a change in the plans of the Albuquerque Pressed Brick Tile company.. The original plans were to erect a large plant at Algodones whom th shale is located, and make exclusively i'i caseu oricK, Dut upon consideration the company discovers that the propo sition will be more profitable if locat ed at the seat of the chief market for their product, which is Albuquerque, and make the common fire clay brick with shale mixed with adobe, as well as manufacture ihe pressed brick. The railroad has been interviewed and it is found that the raw material can be shipped at less cost than the finished product, which Is a strong argument in favor of a plant located at the seat of market. There is very little or no shrinkage in shale from the time it is mixed until it has been transformed Into the finished product, and this Is another argument in favor of the change In plans, as adobe, which will be used in the common brick. Is found au""li to tne city In plenty. It is easily seen that a plant located here would rave the haul of all the adobe "a m tne manufacture of common brick. This change of nlans ,o some time ago, but for reasons known pnly to tiie promoters themsedves has not been made public, though very u klmju news ior tne peo- ?
