POSTAL DEFICIT CUT $11,500,000 Postmaster General's Annual Report Shows Service Is Being Extended WAGES OF MEN INCREASED Federal Banks Being Established and Parcels Post Is Rec ommended WASHINGTON, Pec. 11.—In the space of twelve mouths a reduction had been made In the deficit of the postoftico department of $11,500,000, ac cording to the annual report of Post master General Frank H. Hitchcock, made public today. While a year ago the fiscal records of the postal service disclosed a deficit of $17,500,000, the largest in the history of the country, the excess of expendi tures over receipts for the year ended June 30 last amounted to only $5,848,566. In commenting upon this reduction. Postmaster General Hitchcock says in his report: "It is most gratifying to report that this unprecedented reduction has been made without any curtailment of post al facilities. On the contrary, the serv ice has been largely extended. "The policy of the present adminis tration has been to wipe out losses by increasing the postal business along profitable lines, and while thus enlarg ing the department's income to reduce as far as possible the rate of expendi ture by cutting out wasteful processes, by simplifying and rendering more ef fective the methods of handling postal business, and by raising to the highest possible standard the efficiency of of ficers and employes. SrKKI) SAVE.* MONEY "The more quickly mall matter can be handled tht>. less expnslve is the process. The department accordingly has devoted Itself with great earnest ness to the work of Increasing: the ef ficiency of fho mall service, considering this the surest method of making the postal establishment self-supporting." The department's policy is to extend the service as rapidly as Is warranted by Increasing population. In further ance of this policy, 1500 new postoffiees were established during the last year, and 615 new rural delivery routes, trav ersing altogether 12,235 miles, were in stituted. Nearly 3600 new employes of various classes were placed upon the. rolls of the department, whose aggre gate salaries were more than $2,000,000 annually. In addition to this sum. $1,750,000 was added to the salaries of postofflce clerks, $1,22G,000 to the salar ies of letter carriers and $250,000 to the salaries of railway mail clerks. All in creases in salary were based upon ef ficiency ratings. In the discussion of second-class mall Postmaster General Hitchcock points out the constant growth of this class of matter. It is carried at a loss, and he urges that a remedy should be promptly applied by charging more postage. RAISE RATES FOR APS "in levying the higher rate," the re port suggests. "It is believed that a distinction should be made between ad vertising matter and what is termed legitimate reading matter. "Under present conditions an in cr«SVM in the postage on reading- mat ter is not recommended. Puch an In n-ease would place a. special burden on a largo number of second-class publications, Including educational and religious periodicals, that derive little or no profit from advertising, li In the circulation of this type of publications, which nid so effective ly in the educational and moral ad vancement of the people, that the government can best afford to en courage. For these publications, and also for any other legitimate reading matter in periodical form, the depart ment favors a continuation of the present low postage rate of one cent a pound, and recommends that the proposed increase in rate be applied only to .magazine advertising mat ter. "In view of the vanishing postal deficit it is believed that if the maga llnes could be required to pay what it costs the government to carry their advertising pages the department's revenues would soon grow large enough to warrant one cent postage on flrat-class mail. "Newspapers are not Included in the plan for a higher rate on advertis ing matter because, being chiefly of local distribution, they do not em ploy the mails to any such extent as the widely circulating magazines." kciui. SHBTICE costly While the loss resulting from the low postage rate on second-class mail is the greatest in the postal service the loss on rural delivery service is very considerable. The appropriations annually granted to maintain the rural delivery system, however, as pointed out in the report, are ex pended in the interest of a vast pop ulation. Mr. Hitchcock urges the wisdom of further extension of this system even at a considerable loss to the government. He points out, also, the business wisdom of the consolida tion during the last year of the star route and rural delivery system, the consolidation having been the means of effecting a large saving and of In creasing the efficiency of the ser vice. Mr. Hitchcock reviews the work al ready accomplished looking to the es tablishment of postal savings banks. A trial of the new system will be made, beginning January 1, 1911, at one postofflca in each state and ter ritory of tlio Union. The amount ap propriated by congress for this trial was $100,000. All of the offices se lected for the trial are of the second class, wage earners being particular ly benefited. It is expected that the new postal savings system will be extended to many other offices before the end of the current fiscal year. RECOMMENDS PABCHI4 POST A renewal of the previous recom • mendation for a limited parcels post service on rural routes is made. Mr. Hitchcock expresses he hope that con gress will authorize the delivery on rural routes of parcels weighing as high as eleven pounds. This scheme can be put Into operation with little if any expense to the government. A recommendation is m ide that con gressional authority he riven the de partment for the issuance of postal notes in amounts not exceeding $10, at a, lower fee. than is charsjrd for many orders. Mr. Hltehrnrk believes thai many abuses ol the franking system could 11< ■ ;,:.■■•. .1 inurki •! i oonomy, by Bupplyin ipwial off.li li ' . nvelnpas ;iiid stamp* f"r free mail irf the gov ernment, In the present circumstance! i, |i tmpoi Ibli to detei tnlnu the c>Ht *n the government of the franlunj; U.

It is indicated in the report that the Crusade by the postoftlce department against the fraudulent use of the mails has been pushed with great vigor. During the last few months the prin cipal officers of thirty-four corpora tions and flrmß have been placed under arrest for swindling the public by this method. FRAI'DS tm $100,000,000 "It is estimated." the report says, "that the eighty important eases re cent lv brought to a head represent swindling operations that have filched from the American people In less than a decade fully JIOO.000,000." Mr. Hitchcock stmngly urges that the entire postal service he taken out of politics. He says: "The recent order of the president classifying, on the recommendation or the department! a" aesistant post masters, was an Important step in the right direction. As a still more im portant reform, presidential postmas ters of all grades from the first class to the third, should be placed in the classified service. This action, which is earnestly recommended, would un questionably result in B still bettor standard Of service." A general extension of the civil ser vice rules to fourth class postmasters is recommended, although some disad vantages have developed in the appli cation of the civil service rules to postmasters of that dan, In conclusion, Postmaster General Hitchcock expresses the hope that con gress will see Its. way clear to grant an annual leave of absence of thirty days to portoffice clerks, city letter carriers and to railway postal clerks who are required to work six days or moro a week throughout the year. CONGRESS DELAYS TARIFF TINKERING Promised Efforts at Schedule Revision May Not Materialize at Present Session (Afsoclated Prose) WASHINGTON, Dec. 11.—A week of congress, has not cleared the atmos phere as to whether them there will be any serious effort at tariff tinkering. While many bills have been Intro duced for the repeal of the duties on lumber, food products, coal and many raw materials, they have come ffoni the Democratic minority and are. re garded as indicating the opinion of the individuals at the next session, when the Democrats will be in the ma jority. In the senate the only tariff activity is in regard to the proposed change In the rules by Senator Cummins. The change is designed to permit revision by schedules and prevent considera tion of amendments to schedules other than those specifically under discus sion. The opposition to the proposed change in the rules insists that it in volves cloture in a form that has been repugnant for a hundred years. Friends of the Cummins scheme point to President Taft's Indorsement of tariff revision by schedules and de clare such a rule is necessary if the president's plan is to carry. PENSION BILL NOW EXPECTED The passage through the house of two of the large appropriation bills was an unheard of thing in the his tory of congress, especially when it was considered they were the Indian and rivers and harbors bills, both of which have precipitated controversies and long debates before. It is expect ed that the pension bill will be re ported from committee on Tuesday, and that the legislative, executive and Indicia! bill will be reported on Thurs day. Chairman Tawney of the appropria tion committee has promised Speaker Cannon and Republican Whip Dwight that he can report others of the big supply bills as rapidly as tlfo house can handle them. The rush of these measures through the house at the Instigation of the administration to open the field for the president's legis lative program promises to break all records. At the same time there seems to be an impression among members that the session will prove barren of re sults BO far as general legislation is concerned. Much opposition Is developing against the passage of a bill to pro vide for a reapportlonment based on the thirteenth census, If this should go over until next session some Inter n-tin .- debates would result, Reap portio'nment legislation, as a rule, of fers advantages to the party in power, but next session the bouse will be Democratic and the senate Repub lican, and many members think it would be Impossible to pass a law under such conditions unless it con tained a large element of fairness to both parties.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: MONDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 12, 1910. MEXICAN REBELS MUSTER 8000 MEN Government of Sister Republic Prepares for Active Campaign Against Insurgents REVOLUTIONISTS LACK GUNS Fighting Promises to Be Confined to Mountainous Districts of Country (Associated Press] DOUGLAS. Ariz.. Dec. —After having permitted the rebels to take possession practically without opposi tion of all the territory between Chi huahua and Torreon to the borders of Sonora and Sahuaripa, it is now evi dent that the government of Mexico is preparing to enter on an active campaign against them. It is believed by those who have knowledge of his previous campaigns that President Diaz has purposedly deferred active steps in order to per mit the enemy to gather in one place where they may be surrounded and de stroyed. In the impending hostilities, while the Insurgents have, according to reliable Information, a mounted cavalry force of more than 8000 men, they will be sadly handicapped by the lack of machine guns, while, the gov ernment forces will labor under the disadvantage of operating In a moun tainous country as difficult as that which protracted the campaigns against a far smaller number of Ya quls for many years. In the encoun ters up to date the federal troops have permitted themselves to bo surprised three times by the rebels, which indi cates that the latter have been care less in throwing out their pickets. The general indications are that the rebellion will only be in evidence In a long campaign in the Coahuila and Chihuahua mountains, with the rest of the country free from disturbance. PLAYWRIGHT ASSERTS DIAZ ROLE APPROVED BY PEOPLE John Wesley de Kay Claims Rev olutionists Have No Grievance NEW YORK, Pec. 11.—John Wes ley de Kay. author, playwright and organizer of the United States Pack ing company and the Mexican Na tional Packing company, both of which operate under concessions from the Mexican government, inquired eagerly foi- the news from Mexico when he landed here today from the steamer Coronia, from Liverpool. "If Mexico had a population to deal with like our own," he said, "then the trouble might be grave, for in the United States the masses Of the people have money, their own houses, rifles and some knowledge of how to shoot. But in Mexico 83 or 90 per cent of the people Hre without money, arms or resources "T any kind. "They are entirely incapable of or ganizing any effective or strong move ment against the government, and all disturbances which have not a ma jority of the men of influence and wealth behind them must he compara tively local and petty until the char acter of the citizenry is materially altered. "As a student of Mexico for ten years, I am able conscientiously to say that there is no class of Mexicans who have a real or legitimate griev ance against the government. The property and money interests of the country are protected and hut lightly taxed. The laboring man has a better wage than ever before and with more demand for labor than can he sup plied. "The burden of supporting the gov ernment falls in great part on the Industries and the foreign population, and the industries Hie practically all owned by foreigners. They consume a great portion of imported goods, the duties on which supply a large part of the government revenues. "Throughout the country there is a profound love for President Diaz and universal belief in his integrity." DIAZ TROOPS ANTICIPATE VICTORY OVER INSURGENTS Federal Forces to Attack Rebels Near Texas Border CHIHUAHUA (Via El Paso, Texas), Dec. 11.—Troops, including 120 cavalry men and ten artillerymen with rapid tire «luis, left here tonight over the Orient road, destined for Ojinaga, on the Texas border, where revolutionists are reported In the ascendant. General Hernandez Btated tonight that Genera] Navarro expects to attack the Insurgents at Rancho Santiago, about 1011 miles west of here, tomorrow. Although the Insurrectos equal them in numbers. Hernandez declared the discipline and organisation of tin federal troops, together with their artillery, would give them victory. Rancho Santiago is situated on a : and offers cover behind a Btone fence a mile long. There are also 100 adobe houses that can be utilized by the troops if they are hard pressed. There are many barbed-wire tenc< a In this vicinity which will be a serious 1 obstacle to advancing detachments. Pour hundred reinforcements, with two field pieces, arrived here today on a special train. Tomorrow they will be sent to Join i;. neral Navarre, who is within twenty mile- of the Insurrectos. Both sides are maneuvering to bring about an engagement on advantageous ground. General Navarro is said to have gained the first important point, as he is now In the .open country. r . in mrrectos had hoped to catch htm In tin mountains, where their knowledge of the country would be an I Invaluable asset.

He said normal conditions reigned throughout the republic, except In a portion Of Chihuahua, where the gov ernment forces arc pursuing 400 revo lutionists. His statement, he added, «ns based on official reports from his government, which had kept him advised of the pro gress of events, wherefore he could authoritatively say the lives and in terests of natives and foreigners alike were secure. The ambassador said several revolu tionary successes had ben reported and later denied, "which untrue statements, he said, "have not only reflected upon the reputation of Mexico as a peace loving country, but also have had their effect on Americans with Interests In Mexico and given rise to unrest and a spirit of suspicion as to fie security of. such Interests." lie said the government of General Diaz is absolutely secure, and that for eign interests are in no danger. Continuing, the ambassador said: "The ledltlonarlp* are being- dealt with in a lawful and orderly manner. The cases of all who are taken Into custody because of their participation in the rebellion arc in the hands of the Mexican courts. "The revolt has demonstrated three things: The strength of the govern ment and the spirit of justice that guides the people, the loyalty of the army and the support by the people generally of a course of peace and or der, showing their satisfaction with present conditions." The ambassador snid that not a sol dier had proven disloyal. THE ITALIAN RIVIERA IS BATTERED BY STORM ROME.
