Nov. 27.—Something In the wav of a sensation is going: *o develop before the postal hearings are over. It Is strongly intimated that an offer will be made by an associa tion, composed of men with unlimited capital, to take over from the govern ment the entire postoffice department and run it as a private institution, subject, of course, to government su pervision, the same as express and railroad companies are now operat ed The proposition will be such that the government will either have to accept it or stop talking about in creased rates of postage. The asso ciation will offer to do the postal bus iness of the United States for one half what it costs the government and give bond for the faithful performance of the contract. When the proposition is submitted, some startling facts and figures will come to light, and it will be shown that railroads are receiving double what they should on mail-carrying: contracts, that thousands of employes are carried on the rolls of the postal service because of political influence and not for merit or capability. Whether or not the offer Is consid ered by congress, it is a bold nriove on the part of the association, which has sent its representatives to Washington to make good. Indirectly this offer of taking over the postoffice department is rather a hard knock at government ownership. Sweet Marie for Sale, WW York. Nov. 27.—The iftVtirfcible trotter.

Hill relative to his acquisition of the iron ore lands in northern Minnesota from which the Great Northern shareholders are to reap benefits. The statement of Mr. Hill clears up many misunderstandings concerning the recent deal. Mr. Hill says: "We originally bought a -iiiiroad from some lumbermen who had started It as part of their lumbering enterprise. This railroad is now a part of the Great Northern system. Connected with that purchase was about 25,000 acres of what had been timber land, but on most of which the timber had been cut or disposed of. It was known at tho time of purchase that some of this land contained iron ore. The great Ma honey iron mine, one of the richest on the range, was then being opened, and soon became a great producer. "The ownership of these lands was separated from the railroad company about the time of their purchase. In fact, the purchase of both railroad and lands was made by myself individual ly, and the payment for both the rail road and the land was assumed by me Individually." Mr, Hill said much of the Iron oro lands were acquired twenty years ago. But Mr. Hill explains here that the iron ore land which he has leased to the United States Steel corporation, is not the property or an asset of the Great Northern Railroad Co. that he individually owns, controls and leases these Iron mines, that the Great Northern railroad which carries the product of these mines to tho shipping points at the head of Lake Superior, has a permanent and profitable source of revenue therefrom, which must re sult In enhancing the profits of the road and increasing the dividends to shareholders. As Mr. Hill says, his rule is that any profits growing out of the business of his road belong to the shareholders. But he «t.u«-'« !»rci bly and plainly, that no misunder standing mav be had, that he bought and owns the iron land that he re- oently leased to steel corporation. iS Charles Carroll Lee, and Outerbridge. crop, he estimates, will be slightly Hously of Maryland. under the 11,700,000 mark.
