At a committee bearing on tbe Madden
bill, which proposes to Increase
the salaries paid post office clerks
and letter carriers, there was an Interesting
colloquy between Representative
Moon, of Tennessee, and Representative
Neely, of West Virginia, both
Democrats, In which the latter paid
a back-handed compliment to Post
I master General Burleson. Xeely was
advocating the bill generally, but questioned
parts of it which sought to Increase
tho arbitrary powers of the
Postmaster General. To a dlrefct question
by Moon whether he thought that
that official bad any too much power
under the law, Neely replied: "I believe.that
the Postmaster General Is
vested with considerable more authority,
and seems to be anxious to
oxerelee it, than he or any other official
In a similar position should
have." Neely's reply had more than
the fsual Interest to those present
who wero aware that he and Postmaster
General Burleson have locked
horns more than once over departmental
business In which the First
district representative had a direct
Interest
Four of the other members of the
West Virginia delegation also appeared
befone the committee to advocate
- a favorable report on the Madden
hy, bill?Representative Sutherland, Bowers,
Woodyard and Cooper.
There Is a hamlet called Game, located
in Roane county, the people of
which have to travel four miles to

a post office established there for
nearly a year, but the postmaster St.
Uhler, who would loae a little business
should Game secure an office,
tad who Is an ex-member ofjhe state
legislature and a hefty Democratic politician
In his precinct, has. it Is claimed.
been able to forestall favorable
action as to the petition of the peo
pie or- uame. Representative Woodyard,
who has been diligently working!
to secure these people some relief,
has encountered that condition of affairs.
It is a small and unimportant
matter to everybody else except the
people who have to go four miles to
the post office, but it shows bow farreaching
politics is in the government
Service, and it cited as a typical ex
ample of how deep and far it reaches
in the postal service when the partisan
heads of that department get the
notion to play politics of the peanut
variety.
I At the Pension bureau today, Rep
resentative Sutherland filed with the
Commission applications for pensions
in behalf of Lydta 8mtth, of Wheel

It took tour years ot negotiations v
before the powers were able to talk
out a peace after the Thirty Years' 1
War, and their agreement, called the t
Peace of Westpahlla, provided that n
France should possess Metz, Verdun, 1
Toul, Alsace In perpetuity. v
In addition, the rellglouB dissensions e
ot Germany were for the time settled 1
by this peace, and the princes of Ger- tl
many were made practically lndepend- k
