'To the first place the c'erks handle the mall first and prepare It for tram portatlon, and bandle it last after Its arrival at fbe post < flic, preparing It for the carrier, so that all he has to do Is to 'ay the mall for his ronte and then deliver It Wilmington is a first class pistrffleeln all but the pay, and It Is ■ fact that lu other offices of a similar grads as outs, the olerks get some $300 more than here, yet do eoaroely half the work. "The oarrler bas a regularly fixed sal ary, and he knowB jnst what that salary will bs from one year's end to the other Tne clerks have no stated ealary, but a lump sum ie appropriated forcleik blie, and by the way,is is always the minimum figure, aud then the postmaster has to do the beet he oan, run the office as eon omloally as possible,and If heraus behind, docks the clerks salary to make up It is true they have a nominal salary, bat It Is only for the pnrpoee of lamping the appropriation Now the bill asks for the definite fixing of salaries, making the minimum $001) aud the maximum $1 003. with a premium for a long tenure of service "At present the carriers ere far batter eared forthau the olerks The cleik Is required to bave a good eduoatlon, while the ordinary oarrler oan do his work well on maeh lees The clerk Is ooutiued to hie frequently dingy quarters for from ten to fourteen hoars eaob day. while the oarrler has the benefit of outdoor exer cise, and when he has worked eight hours Is doue aud oau go where be phases On holidays the oarrler la at liberty to eujry himself, but the clerk must toil. Not even on Hnndaya is Iks clerk free, and Fourth of July and Christmas is as any other day to him. Wneu it comes to the hot days of Hummer and the maronry seakr the nineties, the carrier takes his little two weeks' vsestlon snd bis pay goes on just the same, The elerk has to arrange with his fellow olerks to double np end do bis work or else lose his pay, and perhaps his job This bill is designed to give him a vacation and shorten bis hoars a little, "In the Wilmington office there are eleven olerks, three at $900 a year, five at f800 and three at $700, a total of $8,800, or an average of $800 a year per clerk There "are 28 carriers, eaeh of whom get $851) a year Ho much for the pay. The figures speak for themselves. The movement In favor of the bill is being agitated In every olty In the land aud I believe It will piss and this branch of Uncle Ham's service be made still more efficient.''
