PERRY S. HEATH
Sketch of lie Career of the
Assistant Postmaster General.
HELD MANY POSITIONS OF TRUS
Identified With Hawaii Through His
Connection With the First
Now that the First American Bank
of Hawaii is to open its doors in a
day or two a sketch of the public ca
reer of its first and foremost promoter
will not be inopportune.
The recent official visit of First As
sistant Postmaster General Heath to
Porto Rico, resulting in the placing of
tue postal service of that island upon
an independent basis, and his selection
as a general secretary upon the nation
al committee to receive contributions
for the purchase of a home in Wash
ington for Admiral Dewey, have again
brougnt that popular young man into
public view. The secret of Mr. Heath's
success and popularity is not strange
when a little of his life is known.
Those who have only known Perry
Sanford Heath, First Assistant Post
master General, as the suave, adroit,
hardworking executive officer of the
Postoffice Department the "greatest
business concern in the world," as
roisimaster General Charles Emory
Smith described it in a recent maga
zine article those . who have only
met him, surrounded by prominent
public men in his business office,
equally alert in his intercourse with
them to grasp a political point or to
master a complicated executive detail,
might think that, like the traditional
poet, he was "born, not made," for his
1 his would be far from the truth.
The facts are that he has been ham
mered into shape, so to spek, by hard
experience and variegated vicissitudes.
Some of these have been told; others
and the most interesting are not gen
erally known. That he was born on a
farm in Indiana and passed the early
years of boyhood in farm labor, has
often been published. There is noth
ing very significant in this, in view of
the bright galaxy of familiar names in
American history who received similar
initiation into public life. But Perry
S. Heath had training of otuer kinds.
rrinter, DanKer, newspaper corre
spondent in fields of special danger at
home and abroad; the confidant of men
of more than national reputation;
newspaper editor and publisher, and
manager of one of the most successful
of political literary bureaus, he made
a name and a mark in each avocation
before he was called upon to fill an of
fice, which, but for inherent modesty,
would have frequently placed him in
the Cabinet councils of the President
of the United States, as a representa
tive of the Postoffice Department in
the absence of his immediate chief, the
In the earlier years of his life, after
leaving his father's farm, Mr. Heath
entered a printing onice and learned
all the branches of the "art preserva
tive of arts." From that experience
dates his sympathy with all legitimate
trade organizations designed to pro
tect the interests of labor without at
tempting to do wrong to capital. This
feature of his public life has been rec
ognized by numerous formal resolu
tions of organized trade bodies. One
case in point: During his manage
ment of the literary bureau of the Mc
Kinley campaign, in 1896, at Chicago,
when he was furnishing matter to 12,
000 newspapers and political literature
by the carload, he ascertained that one
large order for printing, amounting to
probably $20,000 or $30,000, had fallen
into the hands of a non-union office.
He refused to accept the work after it
was completed, and so firmly resisted
all pressure and threats of litigation
that the important firm which had
made the contract as a last resource
took itself into the typographical
union, with its hundreds of non-union
employes, and then its work was ac
cepted, and printers all over the United
States rejoiced. He induced eight or
ten of the largest non-union printing
offices in Chicago to unionize, augment
ing the rolls of the unions by several
thousand names. For this action the
Allied Printers' Unions of Chicago
passed eulogistic resolutions and
thanked President McKinley for ap
pointing him First Assistant Post
master General. It was a like sym
pathy with labor that led him to ex
ert himself successfully, in his present
official capacity, to secure the classifi
cation of clerks at postoffices. another
achievement which has been widely

when he became president an ger,nral
PERKY S. HEATH, FIRST ASSISTANT POSTMASTER GENERAL ONE
OF THE PROMOTERS OF T
manager of the Cincinnati "Commer
cial Gazette" Company.
The year 3887 was one to him full of
adventure. He was sent by the United
Press to Paris during the Boulanger
excitement, with a view of becoming
war correspondent if that redoubtable
general succeeded in bringing on a re
newal of hostilities with Germany over
Alsace-Lorraine. He had a celebrated
interview with Boulanger, in which
that baffled agitator admitted he could
not raise sufficient forces to accom
plish his purpose, following up this
confesson by retiring to Belgium and
From France Mr. Heath went to Rus
sia and studied Nihilism, obtaining
much important information, which
he contributed to magazines and aft
erward republished in book form, un
der the title of "A Hoosier in Russia."
These writings led to his obtaining,
after much difficulty, an interview with
the great Russian Nihilist, Sergius
Stepniak, in his secret retreat in the
outskirts of London., This adventure
was accompanied by many interesting
and mysterious features. He gained
Stepniak's confidence to such an ex
tent that when afterward a treaty was
sent to the United States Senate which
would have permitted the extradition
from this country of Russian political
exiles, Stepniak put himself in com
munication with Mr. Heath, came, to
Washington, was by him introduced to
the Senate Committee on Foreign Re
lations, to whom he made such repre
sentations (supporting them by read
ing extracts from Mr. Heath's book)
as led to the rejection of the treaty.
As if to crowd important adventures
into the smallest space of time, the
same year found Mr. Heath in Charles
ton, S. C, reporting the death-inflicting
earthquakes. In one of the nights of
inconceivable terror accompanying
that great convulsion of nature, when
buildings were falling all around him,
and terrified people were running into
the streets in their night-clothes, Mr.
Heath sat in the middle of the street,
dictating to a telegraph operator, who
had removed, his instrument to that
place of comparative safety, the only
full and connected acount given
through the press associations of the
memorable catastrophe which almost
laid Charleston in ruins. His various
services to the United Press Associa
tion were frequently recognized in the
proceedings of the directors.
The services rendered by him In con
nection with the last Presidential cam
paign have been mentioned. Mr. Heath
took a prominent part ' in previous
elections. He was one of the earliest
advocates of the nomination of Benja
min Harrison, with whom he was con
nected by ties of neighborhood and
friendship, for he himself was born
within a few smiles of the Harrison
homestead. He supported General
Harrison for the Senate, and for his
first Presidential nomination, and had
charge of the literary bureau at the
Minneapolis convention when Presi
dent Harrison was nominated a second
time. It is an open secret that Mr.
Heath was tendered and strongly urged
to accept the Governorship of one. of
the Western Territories, since admit
ted as a State, but declined the honor.
In connection with his present offi
cial position he has frequently been
called upon to perform important serv
ices. He was chairman of the Com
mittee of Arrangements of the Trien
nial Convention of the International
HE FIRST AMERICAN BANK OF
Postal Union, which met in Washing
ton City in 1S97 one of the most im
portant international bodies that ever
assembled in this country. " Congress
'appropriated $50,000 for their enter
tainment. Mr. Heath was also chair
man of the committee which disbursed
that fund, and turned back $7,0uu into
the Treasury probably the first in
stance when an undertaking' of this
kind did not result in a deficit.
He was chosen sole arbitrator to
pass upon a long-pending dispute be
tween the Government and the West
ern Union Telegraph Company as to
the rate of tolls to be paid on Govern
ment messages many hundreds of
thousands of dollars yearly being in
volved. and accreKatinc a total of
nearly $1,000,000. The investigation of
these accounts required great labor.
His report when made was promptly
accepted by both the Western Union
Telegraph Company and the Govern
ment as a satisfactory adjustment of
the controversy, and the United States
Court of Claims rendered judgment pro
forma, which judgment was satisfied
by Congress without question.
The arduous . duties performed by
him in organizing, establishing and
maintaining the military postal serv
ice during our late war with Spain are
matters of history. It was a work of
great responsibility, without any guid
ing line of precedent, for the public
records were silent as to how the mili
tary postal service was conducted dur
ing the war between the States, from
1S61 to 1SC5. The excellence and ef
fectiveness of the service established,
not only in the numerous miliary
camps in the United States, but in our
conquered and ceded new possessions,
attest in the most conspicuous manner
Mr. Heath's executive abilities, and
establish another bright marking-point
in his career as a public servant.

Thousands of Hoases Destroyed in
MILLER SENTENCED TO DEATH
Engagement of the Crown Prince Wireless
Telegraphy la Japan -Address from
The following advices were received
by the Pacific Mail steamship Rio de
Janeiro last Saturday:
Fire broke out in the neighborhood
of Kumoicho in the native town, at
Yokohama, at about 8:30 o'clock on
Saturday night (12th) and in conse
quence of the strong southerly gale
blowing at the time, spread with fright
ful rapidity over an enormous area of
streets, involving the loss of several
lives, thousands of houses and much
valuable property. The quarter over
which the fire spread, however, being
one of the poorest in the city, with
some exceptions, including Isezakicho
and several public schools, the loss
was not so extensive as it .would have
been had the fire occurred elsewhere.
Had it not been for the barrier offered
by the creeks it is safe to say that al
most the whole of the native town,
would have been , included in this
wholesale destruction. Fortunately,
the flames were unable to overleap
these extremely narrow boundaries, so
that the area of devastation was re
stricted and veryclearly defined. The
fire raged until morning and only sub
sided when there was virtually noth
ing left to burn within the area men
tioned. Fifteen lives were lost and a
large number of people injured. Sev
eral native theaters and other ,large
buildings were burned. The official
reports show that 3,173 houses con
tained in seventeen streets were to
tally destroyed. The insurance to be
paid by the various insurance compa
nies amounts to about 603,000 yen and
several companies are bound to be
come bankrupt in consequence: Nearly
60,000 yen has been raised for the ben
efit of the homeless sufferers. . Since
the fire prices of the various staples
have risen 20 per cent on an average
and the rise in price of lumber, wood
plates, etc., is extraordinary. Carpen
ters, plasterers, matting-makers, stone
cutters and bricklayers, etc. now ask
20 or 30 per cent more wages and still
the supply is unequal to the demand.
Another big fire occurred. at 12:30
a. m. on August 20th at Toyama, where
some 6,000 houses, including a number
of public buildings, were, reduced to
ashes in twelve hours. The loss was
between six and ten million yen.
A second fire in Yokohama oh ' the
morning of the 17th destroyed seventy
six houses and partially burned four
teen more. " ; ' " '
