THE WASHINGTON TIMES, MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 16, 1912.
NEW YORK PRESS NOW OWNED BY FRANK A. MUNSEY (Another Daily Added His Chain of Pub lications. to (Continued from First Pago.) over, It persistently opposed the nomi nation of either Toft or ftooseveit. But we now have both, so we are confronted with a condition, not a theory. My advocacy of Mr. Roosevelt In the campaign for nomination was not In tho Interest of Mr. Roosevelt himself, but chiefly because I wanted to see the economic policies of the Republican party continued In force, and that this might be done meant that wo must have a candidate who could bo elocted. With a hundred millions of human ouls in this country of ours to care for, tho controlling forces of our na tional Government Bhould not be se lected with regard to personal prefer ence, but with regard to fitness for the job and with regard to policies that make for Industrial progress and the square deal to all. This is a two-party fight, make no mistake about this a nght between Roosevelt and Wilson. If Taft had any chance whatever to win, the case would be entirely different. But since his election Is an Impossibility, as the t Press foreshadowed a year ago, since It is probable that he cannot carry so much as a single State In the Union, the problem narrows down to a choice between Roosevelt and Wilson Roose velt, who stands for the economic poli cies for' which this papor has always stood, and Wilson, who stands for economic policies against which this paper has always fought. For Tariff That Protects. The logical and honest thing, then, for this newspaper to do, under the conditions in which we find ourselves, la to support Roosevelt, who can be elected and whose election would mean the continuation of a tariff that protects the American wage against the cheap wage abroad tho continuation of a tariff that makes It possible for our In dustries to compete with foreign indus tries and that protects our markets from the onslaught of foreign Invasion. Tho Press, therefore, under my owner ship, will stand for American prosperity and American industries which, after all, are the bread and butter Issues of the campaign. These will be as safo In the hands of Roosevelt as they would In the hands of Taft as safe In the Pro gressive party as In the Republican. A tariff that will safely cover the difference between the cost of produc tion abroad and at home and will am ply protect our markets from foreign Invasion Is a high enough tariff. A tariff in excess of this Is too high, and Bhould be reduced. The Press will stand for this view of the tariff as it will stand for the protection of the American wage against the cheap wage of Europe, as It will stand for Industrial evolution and so cial luRtlce. It will, too. contend for and fight for whatever makes for genu ine progress and genuine betterment of life among all our people. PRANK A. MUNSEY. Former Owner's Statement. Henry L. Einstein, for nearly eight een years owner of tho Press, ulsp makes a personal statement In con nection" with.' tho "transfer to trie prop erty. He says: To the Readers of the New Tork Press: This newspaper, cf which I'have been the sole owner since February, 1835, I have sold and transferred to Mr. Frank A. Munsey, under whose ownership and direction It Is issued today. To the large number of readers of the Now York Press, embraced In a circulation of some 100,000, I wish to state that various efforts have been made to acquire this newspaper from me, but that I have always refused to consider the purchase of the prop erty by any Interest or Individual that I thought might be repugnant to the readers of tho Press. Mr. Munsey, who now owns and has taken full charge of tho Press, Is a publisher of largo experience and suc cess. His magazines are known all over tho United States, and ho has newspapers in Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington. The ad dition of the Press In New York gives Mr. Munsey a closely linked federation of newspapers in all tho great cities of the Atlantic seaboard from Boston to the National Capital. HENRY L.

Orders for promotion of 13,000 rail way mall clerks' effective October 1, were prepared in the Postofflce De partment today, pursuant to a provis ion in the postofflce appropriation act which guarantees to faithful and ef ficient employes an annual Increase in salary of $100 until they have' reached the maxlmun? alary of $1,800. Chief clerks. In the mall serv Ice will receive $2,000. Tho new appropriation act provides for a reorganization of the railway mall service, along lines suggested by Yoatmaater General Hitchcock. In -Working out the dotalls of the classi fication tho Postmaster General has been In conference with division su perintendents of the railway mall service from all parts of the country. The conforencts are being cohtthuod at the Raleigh Hotel. The bads of pay for clerks In the future will be their efficiency ratings. The Initiation of the system has re quired a great amount of workThere are about 3,700 employes of the serv ice not Included In the promotion or der cffocllvo October 1, but these men aro practically cer.taln of Increased compensation' before the first of the year. The new law provides for three classes of railway postal lines, with their transfer and terminal offices, the compensation to range highest on the lines where the work Is heaviest.

It has been the practice to promote only when Vacancies ocour In the higher grades, and, thorc-fore, promotions have beon dependent on, deaths, resignations, and removals. Hereafter railway mall clerks will havo the assurance of annual pro motions through tho prescribed grades so long as they are faithful to their duties. This Is the method of compen sation that has been 10 satisfactorily applied for several years in the case of postofflce clerks and city lettcrcatrlers, out the range of salaries will bo higher for railway rnft.ll clerks because of the hazardous nature of their employment.
