POSTAL STATIONS.
THEIR HEED IN THE DISTRICT.
Intmlew TTlth the Superintendent or too Free De
lirery Dlrlslon of the Post-Offleo Depart
ment Citie 'trhieh HaTe SU- j
tions X Comparison. -
Following up the subject of the estab
lishment of post-office stations In the District to
enable our citizens to have additional postal facili
ties, so that a man won't have to go clear to the
post-office when he wants to buy a postage-stamp,
and won't have an excuse to go into a drug store,
and after procuring his stamp sample the soda
with a spike," a representative of The Republi
can dropped into the office of Mr. Revere W.
Gurley. the superintendent of the free delivery
branch of the Post-Office Department, and pro
ceeded to apply his inquisitorial corkscrew to that
amiable gentleman. Mr. Gurley has been con
nected with this branch of the Department ever
since there was a free delivery of the mails, and
his quiet, unostentatious manner of dispatching
business, his thorough knowledge of every detail,
and his excellent judgment have made him one
of the most valuable officers in the Department.
' Mr. Gurley." said he, after he had comfortably
seated himself and looked wonderingly round
the room, thinking that there were altogether too
many crowded together, aud that the appointment
clerk should have a room all by himself, as is the
case in most other Departments, "you probably
read an interview with Postmaster Ainger in Tub
Rcpuducan a day or two ago, did you not I"
" Yes. sir," responded Mr. Gurley.
"Well,"' said the news-seeker, "what do you
think of the establishment of stations in this Dis
trict r
" I think, sir, it would be a good thing, and it is
a matter of which I have thought for sometime,
and over a year ago I spoke of it. You see, we
have what are called stations and substations.
Now. from Mr. Ainger's remarks, I infer he is in
favor of establishing stations. At these there is a
regular distribution, and the services of clerks and
other employees are required. Where, however,
we can send the carriers by rail we prefer that
they should all go from one point the post-office."
" In this city," interjected the quill-driver, as he
stopped to put a point on his pencil, " there arc
abundant horse-car facilities to reach almost everv
point."
" Yes." resumed Mr. Gurley, "and on that account
it is probable that substations would answer every
purpose."
" Substations ate not so expensive, arc they?'
asked the interlocutor.
" Not by any means, in Cincinnati some of them
do not cost more than 51200 per year, while I see
that Mr. Ainger's estimate for the stations is about
S2.000 for each station. Two-thirds of that would
of course be for derk-hire."
" What steps arc necessary in order to secure the
establishment of statious or substations in the Dis
trict? Must it he by petittou of the citizens in
terested, or an application from the postmaster?'
asked the scribe.
"The application of the postmaster is sufficient.
When such an application is made we usually send
an ugent to examine into the matter and estimate
the cost, aud then, if we have the funds, the Postmaster-General
gives the order, and the stations,
or substations, are established."
Thankiug Mr. Gurley for his information, Tun
Republican representative bowed himself out and
immediately proceeded to hunt a postal guide.
From this valuable compendium he found that
stations had been established in the following
cities: Ilo-;on, 22; Brooklyn, -1; Chicago, 7;
Cincinnati, C; Cleveland, 3; Meriden, Conn.,
1; Nashville, 1; New Haven, 1; New
York, 20; Oakland, Cal., 2; Philadelphia,
21; Pittsburg, I; St. Louis, 3; San Francisco, 3;
Topeka, Kan., 1; Washington, D. C, 1. The one
station in this city is of course Georgetown. Of
the above cities Boston, Brooklyn, Chicago, Cin
cinnati, New York, Philadelphia, St. Louis, and
San Francisco only have a larger number of letter
carriers than Washington. It is hoped that, as the
matter depends for its initiative upon the action
of Postmaster Ainger, he will make application "to
the Postmaster-General without delay, so that
stations or substations may be established to afford
the increased facilities which the growing busi
ness of the Washington post-office requires.
Holland, the Lunch Jinn.
Isaac F. Xorinen, of the Life-Saving
Service, Treasury Department, says: "I beg leave
to publish my protest in addition to that of your
correspondent in this morning's paper against
the admission of Holland, the Farmers' Lnuch
man, to any privileges within the gift of the Gov
ernment. He not only is a rank Democrat, rebel,
and ex-con federate soldier, but a boor beside.
Some time since, accompanied by a weary, travel
worn friend, I went into Holland's lunch-room.
We sat down at one of the tables and called for a
cup of tea and other refreshments. In the rudest
manner Holland ordered us out, saying he did
not run his business for the accommoda
tion of colored men, and we could not
get anything there. We remoustrated,
but, in the most peremptory manner, he again
ordered us to leave, and threatened personal
violence if wc did not move at once. We remained
a moment, and left. Wc went in as any other
quiet, orderly citizens would have done, and there
was nothing in our conduct during the whole in
terview that was in the least out of the way. Im
mediately on seeing the notice in The Republican
I called on Secretary French and stated the facts
as above, aud am pleased to say that he agreed
with mc in my view of Holland's con
duct. I alio called on Mr. Chief Clerk
Power and related the facts to him.
Mr. Editor, is it too much to hope that in face of
Holland's rebel record, the direct infraction of the
law above cited, and the fact that one class of
Treasury employees would he Ehut out from par
ticipation in the accommodation his lunch-room
might afford, you will recommend the Department
to allow Jlr. Holland to continue his exclusive
system of business whero he pleases outside of
Government limits?-'

The Aqncdnct Bridze Tax.
The Assistant District Attorney, Sir.
Francis Miller, has addressed a communication to
tho Commissioners in relation to the recent ad
verse decision of the court in general term regard
ing the right of the District of Columbia to levy a
tax on tho Aqueduct Bridge property, in which he
sajs that the opinion of the court was not that the
bridge was exempt from taxation, but that as a
considerable portion ol it is in the State of Vir
ginia, of course the District could not levy a tax.
He recommends that the attention of Congress be
called to the subject and that the next assessment
shall be made onlyupon that portion of the bridg
within the District limits.
Accident at the Navy-Yard.
Alfred Burdine, employed in the con

THE BURKE-PAYNE DIFFICULTY.
What n Spectator or an Ocenrrcnce lias
to Say Mrs. Payne's Card.
General E. W. Whitaker requests pub
lication of the following: "I regret exceedingly
that the letter of your Alexandria correspondent,
published in your issue of the I7th instant, im
poses upon mc the necessity of correcting state
ments in that letter which do great injustice to an
innocent lady. I was in company with Mr. Burke
on tho night referred to, which was in October
last, not in February, as stated by your correspond
ent, and from my own personal knowledge now
state the facts as they occurred.
I, TOGETHER WITH MESSRS. PAYNE,
Burke, and Major Bayly, was actively engaged in
the political canvass of last fall, and was very anx
ious to meet Major Bayly, who was expected to
return to the city that evening on the Midland
train with Mr. Payne, and, in company with Mr.
Burke, started in search of him.' On our way Mr.
Burke observed : " This is Payne's residence. Let
us stop and inquire of him whether Major Bayly
has returned to the city." Mr. Burke rapped at
the door, and, after some delay, a window of the
second story was raised, and while Mr. Burke was
explaining the object of our. call I (then a stranger
to Mrs. Payne) walked on down the street, and
was soon rejoined by Mr. Burke, who informed me
that Mr. Payne had arrived while he was inquir
ing for him, and I went back to Mr. Payne's house
and asked him whether or not Major Bayly had
come in on the train with him.
MR. PAYNE ANSWERED MY QUESTION,
when, with the remark that he must be "wearied, I
bade him good-night,and,withMr. Burke, went to
the hotel to meet Major Bayly. I am positive that
it was not more than two minutes from the time I
left Mr. Burke in front of the house to his rejoin
ing me again on the street. I was surprised some
time afterward when Mr. Payne called upon me
for an explanation of the call at his house and the
length of Mr. Burke's stay there. I related the
circumstances as detailed above and he declared
that he was entirely satisfied.
MR. PAYNE CONTINUED TO LIVE
with his wife from that time until the month of
February last, when, as I am informed, under the
influence of an unfounded suspicion of impro
priety on her part on the occasion, referred to, he
drove her from his house. I ask that you will
publish this plain statement of facts in vindica
tion of a lady grievously wronged by the publica
tion of the letter of your Alexandria correspond
ent. I should feel called upon under any circum
stances to do her this act of justice; but the fact
that Mr. Burke's presence at the house of Mr.
Payne on that occasion was on my behalf renders
it imperative upon me to make this statement, in
refutation of the slanderous misrepresentations
which, have been made of what then and there
occurred."
What Mi's. Payne States.
Mrs. Payne states to TnE Republican
that when Mr. Burke and Goneral V.'hitakcr
called she had retired, but was not asleep, and had
not locked her ball-door, as she cxpected.Mr. Payne
every moment; that she answered Mr. B.'s in
quiries from the window, and, after lowering the
sash, she heard some one say : " Your dooris open;"
but before she could reply she recognized Mr.
Payne's voice and did not leave her room. She
says the stories that have been circulated do her
gross injustice.

STATIONERY CONTRACTS.
Avranls 33ade in the Poi-Ofllcc Depart
ment for the Sext I"iscal "Year.
The awards for furnishing stationery
to the Post-Ofiice Department for the fiscal year
commencing July 1 next were made yesterday
afternoon. In determining the successful bidders
a consideration was given to the quality of the
samples submitted as well as the price asked, and
the lowest proposal was in a great many instances
not accepted. In some cases even the highest bid
was taken.it being believed that it would be
really cheaper for the Government in the end
to secure an article of first-class quality rather
than accept inferior material at a low figure.
The appropriation for stationery for the next year
isSO.OOO; but it is not thought that over 7,000 will
be expended. The different items on the schedule
were awarded as follows: J. J. Chapman,

The Eacle and I(i Tail-Feathers.
Those who have been hunting for silver
dollars of the first issue of 1S78, which have an
eagle with eight tail-feathers, will be disappointed
to learn "officially" of the number that were
issued, and that they arc no more valuable than
the later issues, on which but seven tail-feathers
appear, the position of the arrow which the eagle
holds in his talon being changed so as to conceal
the other feather. So much inquiry has been made
in reference to the eight tail-feathered eagle that
the Director of the Mint has issued the following
circular letter:
Treasubt Department,
Bureau of the Mint,
Washington, D. C, .
Sir: Your letter of the .addressed totheSecre-
tary of the Treasury, relative to thevalueof thesilver
dollar on which the eagle has eight tail-feathers, has
been referred to this office.
Upward of a million of these pieces were struck and
ssued, and they are of no more value than other dol
lars. Very respectfully,
HOItATIO C. BUBCHAJ1D, Director.
From the Chocian- Xation.
Secretary Kirkwood yesterday re
ceived a telegram from Fort Smith, Ark., embody
ing resolutions adopted at a mass meeting of citi
zens of that place Thursday. The resolutions com
plain that the Indian authorities of the Choctaw
Nation have passed a law assessing a very high
tax upon all white persons without Indian rights
who carry on any trade or occupation within the
territorial limits of the nation, and deploring the
action of the Choctaw Nation in attempting to
enforce such a law at a time when such enforce
ment would work great injury, hardship, and
suffering upon the white settlers. The Secretary
is earnestly implored to take such steps in behalf
of the people as in his judgment may be necessary
to postpone the enforcement of the law in ques
tion until the present growing crops are gathered.

ARMY FORAGE.
Important Decision. By the Secretary of
War The Officers to be Benefited.
At the last session of Congress an im
portant clause was inserted in the army appropri
ation bill relative to tho removal of the discrimi
nation between officers east and west of the
Mississipp River as to forage. The law, as it ex
isted, allowed fbrage only to officers west of the
Mississippi. The new law reads as follows :
Iovided, That there shall beno discrimination In
the issue of forage against officers serving east of the
Mississippi River, provided they are required by law
to be mounted, and actually keep and own their own
horses.
There was some doubt as the effect of this clause,
as has been printed in TnE Republican, and
whether it superseded the old law, which limited
the Issue of forage "only to officers when
on duty in the field." The question was
brought to the attention of the Secretary
of War, and he has decided that the new clause
supersedes the old, and not only removes the dis
crimination between officers east and west of the
Mississippi, butalso does away.with the restrictions
of the former enactment; so that the Secretary is
not compelled to designate the.posts where forage
can be granted, nor are tho officers in receipt of
forage compelled to be on active duty in the field.
The forage, however, must be "in kind," as the
system of commutation has been done away with.
This decision will be a very welcome one to the
army officers living East, as the item of fbrage is
quite a large one in their personal expenses, it
will enable a large number that have not hereto
fore been able to keep horses to set up their own
equipages. The officers allowed to keep horses
are specified by law, and are as follows:
The General, five horses; Lieutenant-General.four
horses; major-general, three horses; brigadier
general, three horses; colonel, two horses; lieu-tenant-colonel,
two horses; major, two horses; cap
tain (mounted), two horses; lieutenant (mounted),
two horses; adjutant, two horses; regimental quar
termaster, two horses. The officers living in this
city that come under the provisions of this law
constitute quite a large number. Very many of
them already keep horses, but the large majority
do not. The following are the officers on duty here
entitled to keep horses and receive forage. Gen
eral Sherman, Colonel Dodge, General Tidball,
Colonel Morrow, Colonel Tourtellotte, Colonel Ba
con, General Poe, Colonel Barr, General Drum
General McKeever, General Rugglcs, Major Nick
enon, Colonel Corbin, General Sacket.' General
Baird. General Meigs, General Holabird, Colonel
Chandler, Colonel Moore, General Card, Gen
eral Macfeeley, General Haines, Colonel Gilman,
Major Bell, General Barnes, General Crane, Col
onel Woodward, Colonel Billings, Colonel Baxter,
Colonel Norris, General Brown, Colonel McClure,
Colonel Febigcr, Colonel Casey, Major Smith,
Major Candee, Major Wright, Major Parke, Major
Elliott, Colonel Farquhar, Colonel Rockwell,
General Benet, Colonel Whittemore, Gen
eral Swaine, Colonel Winthrop, Colouel Cur
tis, Colonel Goodfellow, and General Hazen. The
number of horses to which each of these officers
is entitled is given above. As the same number
are allowed to a major and brigadier-general and
a colonel and a lieutenant-colonel, these titles
are not specified. The law goes into effect at once;
and now that what has been regarded as an un
just discrimination between officers cast and
west of the Mississippi River is removed, there will
be a greater number of horses and far more horse
riding in army circles. The same privilege is of
course extended to officers at the different stations
throughout the East.
THAT DEFALCATION.
Collector IZisbyM Trouble IH Bond
Said to Be Perfectly Clood.
Upon inquiry at the Bureau of Internal
Revenue yesterday with regard to the defalcationin
the office of Collector Iligby, of the California dis
trict, it was ascertained that the office will be
transferred to Chancellor nartzcll before business
hours on July 1. Commissioner Raum says that
Collector Higby's bond is perfectly solid, aud that
he will be required to make good any deficiencies
of his subordinates before surrendering the office.
The defalcation of Deputy Collector Kelly, who has
absconded, it is thought, will reach about S'2,000.
There have been several attempts made by the
internal revenue office during the past two years
to have Collector Iligby removed, owing to his in
capacity to transact the business properly. The
latter fact Commissioner Raum explains as being
due to the weight of years and failing
health. Several of Mr. Higby's subordinates have
from time to time taken advantage of his condition
and misappropriated Government fund'. Some
of these officers have heretofore been removed and
the losses made good. Commissioner Raum an
ticipates perfect discipline and efficiency in the
ofiice after the newly-appointed collector has as
sumed control. The defalcation of Hebbard, it is
said, was discovered some two months ago, and he
is now under indictment. The fraudulent trans
actions were brought to light by William Somer
ville, Internal revenue agent of Illinois, who has
been on special duty in the California district for
several months. Mr. Somcrvillc has been in
structed by the Commissioner to prosecute the of
fending persons to the full extent of the law.
"Vounjr Iiadles' Temperance Union.
The inaugural meeting of the Young
Ladies' Christian Temperance Union, No. 2, of
East Washington, was held at the North Carolina
Avenue Mission last evening. Miss Libbie Moffat,
the president, presided with the ease and grace of
an experienced official, though it was her
first effort in that direction. Rev. Mr.
Leach, of the Fourth Street Church, opened
the meeting with prayer, after which
Miss Rosa Robey gave some pleasant selections on
the piano. Miss Lillie Colliflower made a neat
and interesting address on the subject of temper
ance, which was followed by an essay on " Our
Reasons for Being Temperate, from Personal Ob
servation," written by Miss Nellie Crosby, and read
by Miss Thompson. The essay was well prepared,
the argument being unanswerable as well as con
vincing. Remarks were made also by Mis3 Julia
Martin and Mrs. Roach, the president of the Wo
man's Christian Temperance Union of Washing
ton, in which a history of woman's successful
work in the temperance cause was given, Mrs.
Roach's remarks relating specially to the temper
ance crusade by the women in Ohio some years
since. One of the pleasantest incidents of the
meeting was the signing of the pledge by a num
ber of young men.
Frocbcl Znstltnte.
The annual closing examination of the
Froebel Institute and Kindergarten took place at
the building, 1127 Thirteenth street northwest.
The exercises consisted of a practical exemplifica
tion of the proficiency attained during the year by
the pupils in their regular studies. Several Ger
man dialogues were given with clear pronuncia
tion and thorough understanding by MisseS:Carric
and Bessie Knox, Toner Antiscll. Lesca Pollock.
Elliott Coues, Bertie Ryan, and Milton Blumen
bcrg. The spirited interest evidenced by the pu
pils trained in this new method of education was
enjoyed by the many parents and friends of the
school who were present, and who tendered their
congratulations and thanks to the principals,
Misses Pollock and Noerr, for their able and effi
cient work during the past year.
