The plan of doing away with the t laiali sum- character of c-orresj oii- lUnci- carried on through the no-diutn of the general delivery window of tin postotfice was broached some months ago by the writer of an article for a popular magazine. He asserted that a high percentage of the correspon dence carried on in this way was illi fiitimat'. and that It was a mistake under the circumstances for the gov ernment to provide facilities whereby operators of shady business sclumea miht be assist' d in prcyirur unon the public and amatory messages mial.t 1 ass to anil fri MhiobstrvtM betwec unwis. and often illicit lovers. A well-known official called atteti tion to this article at a convention of representative of t'nele Sam' mail s-ivice, and Poslotnco, Inspector. Stuart made lisht of the matter, affirming that of the business at the general de livery of the Chicago postofrlce the por tion which was above suspicion of iin- 1 ropnety amounted to J5 "per cent. I-'or Koine reason the inspector v iew s H'-em to have changed since that time, rum. ni'Ws tin- Evening Wisconsin. He Is the author of the new policy nt the ChicRgo t'ostofflco. inaugurated this week which requires that everyone re it.vlng mad addressed lo the general d- livery shall be required to sign With his or h r true name a card of identifi cation and to give the reason why hi i iicr mail i not addressed to street end number instead of to the general U- hvi ry. It is naid that the patrons of the u" r.il delivery in Chicago number 1 ' rsons, mostly men nnd women, of tlu m boy and girl. In irt say it is surprising arried women In Chicago nc.j ve mail under- fictitious names. Among the reasons for the new re quirement of the Chicago postoffice he gi i the follow ing: "Kvll coine from the delivery of thousand of Utters weeklv to girl under age. Thousands daily receive mail under fictitious names at the gen ral delivery windows, from which no good ( oine The general delivery is lately overtaxed by the growing d" llianils of llctltious letter writers. Crime may oftentimes be prevented and more i.asily detected when Individuals re i live their mail at their homes or I lace of residence, if only temporary." Tle-se seem to be very good reason, and likely to exist elsewhere as well as iu Chicago. Inspector Stuart ex plains that "if. after a card has lien signed, tin- Individual rail for mail undi r another names postal authorities will investigate the circumstances; find that If the person is n girl or young the parent will he notified." Several years ago a system of corres pondence through mall boxes main tained In drug stores was broken up iu New- York city in the Interest of mor ality and fair dealing. Nobody would want all hi private letters to become public property; but there I a great diiTeii-nre between this natural reti cence and the secretiveness that had people to carry on correspondence in secrecy under assumed names.
