byVmeans of mechanical devices for
communication J between distant points
for the Englishgovernment finds
Itself compelled 10 reduceito u great
extent of tolls on dhe telegraph lines
which It runs In order to compete
with the privatelyowned < telephone
A rather curious condition of affair
exists in England from the same
cause that has left her far behind In
electric railways as compared to this
country that Is tho municipal owner
ship craze since the privatelyowned
telephone Is to a groat extent used fIr
the transmission of long distance
messages which In this country on
accoutn of greater personal convent
once are naturallffltent l by telegraph
The English government Indeed
finds inoreaslii difficulty according
to the reports Todeired < here In com
peting through Its own telegraph lines
with tho telephone about the only
thing which has not yet come under
the control of munlcloal ownership In
King Edwards isle But oven when
tempted by low rates the Englishman
doesnt seem to care to take advan
tage of them t for according to the
latest report of the census bureau
Americans csetho phono and the
wire many Mmes oftener than do
the natives off the mother country
All of which would seem to Indicate
that John Dull has found his govern
ment and cite business monopolies
more or less ofa loslnt game
Mail Girrylnjj Service
Competition In bidding for mali
contracts particularly In rural dis
tricts Is fast becoming a matter oC
history according to postodlce officials
Formerly Uncle Sam found carrier
for many of the smaller route for
practically nothing but in nearl
every such case the man who halls
the Jobtiowad8ys receives a more or
less adequate compensation Under
the old regime the most extraordinary
condition of affairs often existed For
Instance tho mall barrier at Lake
Charles La was under contract for
four years to pay to the government
the sum of 50 a year for carrying
the malls by steamer a distance of
fiftyfive miles three times each week
the valve to the carrier being found
of course In the business standing
which he derived from the service
This contract has Just ended and the
new Incumbent Is to receive a salary
of JSOOQ a year for doing Just the
same work that cost his predecessor
50 annually A still more curious
Instance of the old order Is found In
tho case of West Brid eton Vt where
the carrier for going twelve timer a
week to t Woodstock six miles away
received the princely remuneration of
one cent each year for his services
His successor now receives 100 A
former carrier of Freedom NV H also
distinguished Jimself by carrying the
m ls several miles dally for two and
a half mills a year The Job now
pays fl50 Altogether Uncle Sams
letter carriers aro coming Into newer
and better conditions to which the
automobile as a future means of dis
tribution forms a very attractive If
not yet acUally existing addition
Shirt Waist In Army
The shirt waist man who came
struggled against criticism and dis
appeared Is likely to find in thr
United States army the perpetuation
of the custom ho attempted to so
Soldlersln shir waists that Is tho gist
of the suggestion recently mado to the
war department by General Leonard
Wood commanding the Philippine
division His suggestion in particu
lar Is that the troops of his command
be authorized to wear the rank Insig
nia on their shirts under condition
which make it admirable to dlspene
with the coat Unfortunately there
Is no money available for the pur
chase of additional insignia but the
war department has authorized tho
use of khaki chevrons on the shirts
and General Wood will be allowed to
regulate the practice of leaving off
the service coats uniformity however
being Insisted upon In the matter In
the Interest of discipline and neatness

tatlves of the meat packing Inter
ests of the country with whom ho
continued his conference today that
he had no authority to extend be
yond the first of October tho plic
Ing of labels on canned goods or
other meat products
He told the packers flatly that they i
must be prepared on that date jlo
properly label their goods or they
would not be permitted to seud them
through the channels of Interstate
commerce The question Was raised as to the
status of goods now on the shelves
of wholesale and retail merchants of
the country The secretary salt I It was
manifestly Impossible for the gov
ernment to Inspect them and that the
owners or holders of the foods ho
suggested would have to take their
chances on selling them
One thing was certain they could
not be shipped from one state to an
other Tho law howevej does not
prohibit their sale where they happen
now to be
The disposal of such goods de
pended upon the desire of tho con
sumer Wilson said that the packers
wero anxious to conform In all re
spects to tho law and that the con
ference had made evident the fact
that some of them would be unable
to comply with all of its provisions
by the first of October because they
had not been sufficiently forehanded
in their preparations These men
necessarily would be obliged the see
retary said to confine their business
operations within their own state
line until such time as they wore pre
