CLERKS ARE BUSY
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
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
"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
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.
BUSINESS STILL KEEPS UP.

performance was repeated In the
same locality. When the yard officers
made an investigation no one was in

should he be caught "with the good"

that reminded one of the fabled story
of the slave herder. A dozen boxes

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

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
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

be used in the common brick. Is found
