April l.r.-Ilavinf rvpeatedty failed to sts'itre remedial leg islation flout congress to prevent abuses of the privileges of second class mail mutter the postotlice department olll ctals have uiiiicr consideration the que;, tiou uf the uiloption of a proposed rule by authority of the postmaster general lo bring about the desired reforms. With this object in view Kdwin ( Madden, third assistant postmaster general, hn addressed a long circular letter to about 400 publishers ef newspiipciH and per hslicals, sciiini; forth the objisis sough to be aceouiplisl.iHl by the propositi rule ami asking the following ipicstions: "In the Judgment of those nddressisl will a departmental rule be regnrded as biiurious to licit imate newspapers nnd pc riodicnls which will stop absolutely 11 premium inducements, direct or indi rect, and of whatever chiirni ter, for sub scriptions?" In other words, after a publisher has fixed n price on hi pubic ration, nuy Isiniis or premium given tn the subscrilier or any cuiubinntion with another tliinir except n second class pub licntioti. shall ritinte thnt subscription In Its relation to the second class rates o! postage. Mr. Madden adds: "It is believed that such a rule ns that promised will be of great direct benetit to legitimate jour nalism nml that in ncry large measure it will check this draft upon the public treasury fur private advantage, with no compensating public beiielit. through the elimination of the immense number of publications which are wholiy sustained in their second class status by patronage induced by some extraneous thing ill con lli t with the direction of better postal facilitiis mid cheaper rules for other classes of matter." The circular asserts thnt the loss of revenue to the government from the abuses of the privileges of second lnss tmittcr is enormous, being estimated con servatively to be between Sl.'i.lsKl.lsKl and $l'5,lMKi.(sl a year. K.usting regula tions, however faithfully administered, are inaileipiate to accomplish material re form and tl.e most prolific menus hy which the law is circumvented remains nndistnrls-d by regulation.

The missionaries, naturally timid, tnke those reported in good faith." The conduct of the ministers of the: powers over the negotiations with th Chinese plenipotentinrics causes niuc'i adverse comment among the mil it si rv a in limit iis. Their dilatory tactics hnvr prevented what might have been nceuiii plislied two months ago. Kvcn now the meetings of the ministers nre postponed for the most triviul causes For instance the desire of one minister to go on a pic nic to the tombs of the Ming dynasrj prevented the holding of n meeting foe a number of days.
