It la the- lOMtiuilHtcr General
After a lengthy consultation with pub
lishers of leading newspapers In tho Now
Krgland States R G Underwood of Bos
ton has come to Washington for a con
lennce with tho Pojtmaster Oenoral In
relation to various reforms In the privi
leges of the second class mall matter
class announced to go Into effect October
-1 The reforms are understood to embrace
the sjpressloii of objectionable advertising
matter and especially advertisements of
certain patent medicines Accordingto Mr
Undcniood newspapers which print these
advertisements after October 1 will bo de
nied transmission through the malls as
second class mall matter
The question is one of great impor
tance to newspaper publishers wild Mr
Underwood jesterday and more espec
lilly so to the publishers of small country
papers Numerous reforms will be
I tuted on October 1 Among the matters
which we wish to discuss nnd consider
with the Postofllce Department are the
following
What adv crtlscments can be declined
by a newspaper Whit is a newspaper
legally Action of the Postolllce Depart
ment regarding publications which insert
objectionable advertisements Status of
certain trade publications when the pub
lishers are directly Interested in another
business and refuse to insert nt regular
rates advertisements from their competi
tors
These aro a few questions added Mr
Underwood which the PostoIIice Depart
ment will be asked to consider The agi
tation started through the fact hat the
medical advertising has grown boMer and
more offensive every jcar so much so
that many libraries in the United States
have declined to allow publications print
ing them in their rooms
Speaking of tho 0000 small country pa
pers Mr Underwood declared that they
will be benelited by the reforms
which the Postofflce Department is about
to Inaugurate It la understood that Mr
Underwood has made a test case before
the department In regard to the Brock
ton Times
The Third Assistant Postmaster Gen
eral jesterday gave out the construction
by the Assistant Attorney General for
the Postolllce Department of the act of
July 16 1191 relating to benevolent fra
ternal and educational publications In
u circular letter issued to postmasters
regarding the matter Mr Madden said
In considering applications for the
entrj of publications tinder the act of
July IS liSl postmasters will be guidfd
by the words of the law and extracts
from opinions of tho Assistant Attorney
General for this department pur ihed
below
The act referred to roads ns fluws
Provided that from and after tho
pissage of this act all periodical judica
tions issued from a known place e f pub
lication at statiKl Intervals and as fre
quentlj as four times a jear bj or under
the auspices of a benevolent or fraternal
or order organized under the lodge
sjstcm and having a bona fide member
ship of not less than lnoo persons or b
a regularly incorporated Institution of
learning or by or under the auspices of a
trades union and all publications of
strictly professional literarj historical
or scientific societies Including the bulle
tins issued by State boards of health
shall be admitted to the mails its second
class matter and the postage thereon shall
be the same as on other seond class
matter and no more provided fur
ther that such matter shall be originated
and published to further the oojects and
purposes of such society order trades
union or institution of learning and shall
be formed of printed piper sheets with
out board cloth leather or other sub
stantial binding surh as distinguish
printed books for preservation from peri
odical publications
Tho opinion rendered by James Ty
ner the Assistant Attorney General for
the Postolflce Department under date of
April 4 1000 is ns follows
I have the honor to acknowledge the
receipt of jour communication of thf 29th
ultimo requesting my opinion as to the
meaning of the terms a regularly Incor
porated Institution of learning as con
tained in tho act of July 16 1SS4 relating
to the admission to the malls as second
class matter of publications Issued by be
nevolent or fraternal societies Institu
tions of learning etc
The case jou present is thit of tho
Gainesville Business College Companj of
Gainesville Tex which mikes applica
tion for the admission to the second class
rates under the provisions of thf act of
July 16 ISSi of a periodical publication
Issued by said company
You state thit there are two classes of
institutions appljlng for the privileges of
this act first those of a public character
incorporated under the name of the In
stitution Itself and second those of a
private character incorporated by a stock
companj lor purpose or gain
In Judgment the aim of the act of
July 1C 13J Is to promote the Interests
of Institutions of learning organized for
the benefit of the public and not for
or person maintaining and con
ducting a school college or place of in
struction for the personal benefit of the
owner or stockholders
The Gainesville Business College
Companj Is Incorporates under tho laws
of the State of Texas for the purpose of
giving Instruction and such business Is
conducted for the benefit of the stock
holders of the companj This companj is
not In my Judgment a regularly Incor
porated Institution of learning within the
meaning of the net of July 16 1S94 nnd
therefore a publication issued by It is not
admissible to tho malls as second class
matter under the act
Under date of January 21 1901 Mr
Tvncr held
J have before mo jour letters dated
November 30 1900 and December 7 1900
with which jou submitted a number of
specimen periodicals and ask to have a
settlement of the following questions
viz
Ilrst The right of a publisher under
the educational act to insert any adver
tising not pertaining strictly and Immedi
ately to the propigation of learning In Its
technical sense as inculcating a knowl
edge of those bnnches of education which
cultivate and enlarge the mind as distinct
from the sale of school furniture or any
other article
Under this law to entitle a paper to be
sent through tho malts at second cliss
rates among other things the matter con
tained therein shall be originated and
published to further the objects and pur
poses of such societj order trades union
or Institution of learning In reply there
fore to jour enquiry designated Ilrst 1
have to state that in m opinion a paper
containing advertisements In tho Interest
of other persons or concerns than the so
ciety order trndes union or Institution of
learning which such paper represents is
not entitled to the privileges of tho law
quoted My opinion Is strengthened by
the fact that the act of Congress Mirch
3 18791 which authorizes you to accept
at second clnss rates certain periodical
publications having a legitimate list of
subscribers expressly states
That nothing herein contained shall
be so construed as to prohibit the Inser
tion In periodicals of advertisements at
tached perminenlly to the same
Tills proviso applies onlj to the act In
which It was Incorporated and as Con
gress has not seen lit to Insert a slmllir
provision fn the act of July 16 1S91 we
cannot place It there

NO MORE SHIFTING OF CRETSTS
The Illinois to He Cninniiaalosied
With Full Term diluted Men
It Is expected that the battleship Illi
nois will go into commission about Sep
tember lCt At the picsent time there
are only fifty seven vacancies In her
complement of 492 men No men are to
be detailed to this vessel who have not
fully three years to serve and It Is the
Intention of the Bureau of Navigation to
revert to the old practice of putting ships
In commission with officers and crew who
have three years to serve and endeavor
ing to retain the complement Intact dur
ing that period
The practice which was necessarily
brought about during the Spanish-American
war of frequently transferring men
and officers from one ship to another has
worked much to the detriment of the
efficiency of vessels It is expected that
tho complement will be tilled by Septem
ber 1 and no petty officers for service
aboard hir will be enlisted after that date
Irom the latest reports the Prairie and
the Olvmpla will be ready for commis
sioning In October Orders have been Is
sued by the Bureau of Navigation to as

RIGHTS OF INDIAN DESCENT
Title to 10000 Acres IIIiikch on
Trilml LMiiKe or Common Iiivv
At the Interior Department yesterday It
was stated there was nothing new in the
report telegraphed from Omaha Neb
that the Secretary of the Interior had de
cided that children born of an Indian
mother married to a white man followed
the status of the father
This decision it was said was promul
gated more than a ear ago It seems
the titles to 1000 acres of land In Hold
and Knox Counties have been nullified by
the above decision This case however
It was said Is one for the courts and not
the Interior Department to decide
