nual report for the past fiscal year Mr
Kimball expresses gratification that he
Is able to present the most satisfactory
results accomplished since the general cx
UuMon of the serico to the sea and lake
coasts in 1S7G
Further on Mr Kimball says
MmWIiNt ItnHti or lir
The statistics show absolutely the
smallest loss of life from documented cs
sels suffering disaster within the copo
of the service during these years and also
nith respect to csscls cf all classes
including the undocumented with the ex
ception of the j ears 1SS0 1SS2 1SS3 and
liSS Ecn compared with these It Is the
smallest in proportion to the number of
casualties the loss haing been only one
in every forty flvc casualties as against j
one In cery forty one casualties in 1SS0
the most favorable of the four ears men
tioned
The average number of lives lost an
nually during the entire period twenty
five years was thirty seven one life hav
ing been lost in ccry thirteen casualties
while the number lost during the past
year was seventeen or as above stated
one in every forty fle casualties From
documented essels alone the number was
only seven one to eery fifty four cas
ualties The statistics of the jear are
as follows
The tlisualtie
The number of casualties to document
ed essels was 377 There were on board
these essels 2S1S persons of whom
2 841 were saed and seven lost Six
hundred and forty eight shipwrecked per
sons received succor at the stations to
whom 1211 dajs relief in the aggregate
was afforded The estimated value of
the esses involved in disaster was j
253450 and of their cargoes J2 03055
making a total alue of property imper
iled 7334000 Of this amount JC 400033
was saved and tS955 lost The number
of vessels totally lost was forty three
In addition to the foregoing there wero
during the jear 3D3 casualties to small
craft undocumented such as small yachts
sailboats rowboats etc on board of
which were S27 persons of whom ten were
lost The property involved in these In
stances is estimated at 212310 of which
J1G0210 was saved and fJ33u0 lost
Besides the number of parsons saved
from vessels of all hinds there were
sixty nine others rescued who had fal
len from v harves and piers or v ro oth
erwise in extreme peril most r whom
would have perished but for lb aid of
the life saving crews
The crews saved or assisted to save
422 vessels valued with their cargoes
at 3133010 and rendered assistance of
minor importance to SIS vessels in dis
tress besides warning fiom danger
231 vessels The circumstances show
that many of the vessels which
received warning were large- It
Is difficult to estimate their value but It
cannot tie less tnan 4b
number of lives in danger not less than

The cost of the maintenance of the
service was iC4001374
The General Superintendent again ur
gently calls attention to the Inadequate
compensation of district superintendents
whom he believes to be the poorest paid
officers under the Government consider
ing the serious and exacting nature of
their duties and the extent of their fis
cal responsibilities Their salaries range
from 1300 to 1S00 per annum and they
are required to furnish bonds ranging
from 10000 to 30000 In amount
Their present salaries were fixed as long
ago as 18S2 since which time the service
has been largely extended the number of
stations in ail districts having been In
creased in some instances 100 per cent or
more and in others 60 per cent Their
fiscal responsibilities have heen cor
respondingly enlarged and their multi
farious duties inci cased to such an ex
tent that at the present time several
of them arc obliged to employ clerical as
sistance at their own expense
The General Superintendent recom
mends that the compensation of each dis
trict superintendent be advanced to 2
300 per annum whkh he regards as lc3S
than Is paid to any officers of the Gov
ernment holding correspondingly respon
sible positions On different occasions
bills have been passed by both houses of
Congress substantially proposing the in
crease requested but they have failed to
be enacted Into law

In rage after reading the letter of

about five minutes that I put the papers
In the stove which is a new one I am
now so sorry that I asked my mother-in-law
to kick me which she did with a will

THE HOFMANN CONCERT
rlrst Important llcrltnl of tin- en
hiiu a Crcnt huceen
Josef Hofmann gave his first recital of
the season in Washington yesterday aft
ernoon at the Colrmbia Theatre before a
large audience composed to n Keat ex
tent of resident musicians His entire
programme was attended with the most
profound Interest
Hofmann is o longer the boy v onder
who after bcinp lifted to the piano stool
would manifest an almost preternatural
knowledge of the kejboard Ho is now
the matured artist the musinan whose
effects are gained legitimately Unllko
nearly all artists of his kind Hofmann
does not present a freakish appearance
when he steps on the stase He has no
pronounced mannerisms by which be may
be distlngtilbhed nor does he wear his
balr lrnger than custom prescribes In
fact there is nothing urnommon in his
appearance and he is an altogether usual
sort of a young man which fact Ins prob
ably led many to believe that be is not a
great artist He depends holelv upon his
work for public recognition md approval
and his modesty and lack of affettalon In
responding to encores vesterday after
noon v ere among the moat delightful
features of the recital
The programmo was evidently irrangcd
with a view to displaying the young mu
sicians marvelous technique including as
it did Haudel Brahms Variations and
iFlamey an Oriental fantasiu by I5ilv
kii f a most difficult IntrUato and ta
pricious composition Both are rigid tests
of a pianists executive powers Her
manns touch is keen clear and precise
with ti subtle dreamy tone and a fascin
ating elequence almost indescribable
His execution Is about perfect Lisztj
Valsc Mephisto with its Hood of ar
pegglcs was played faultlesslv and Men
delssohns Sihuizo a Capprii cio with
Its majestic chords and intricate move
ment was handled with consummate
skill Chopins Ballade in A Hut mjjor
and two characteristic Polish songs by
the same master proved to be veritable
gems If a Lboico of Hofmanns numbers
jcftcrday afternoon could bo made It
wculd undoubtedly fall on Schumanns
Xachtstuck The pianist icallzcd all
tho poetry charm and iunato beauty of
Schumanns mclod and his phrasing was
admirable
The audifnee was an one
and at tho conclusion of tho programme
Hoffman was compelled to respond to an
encore
1 ist night Hofmann entertained Presi
dent and Mrs Roosevelt and a number of
their guests at the White House The
joung pianist performed several selec
tions from his repertoire and at the sug
gestion of the President rendered a num
ber of compositions that do not uuully

William M Johnson First AMiktant
Postmaster General submitted his annual
report for the past fiscal year to tho Post
master General yesterday afternoon
Tlie Crow th if the ervire
Referring to tho growth of the postal
service Mr Johnson says that In the five
years just passed the number of Presiden
tial potoIlcc3 has Increased from 3031
to 4ISy or 23 per cent
The salaries of postmasters ha in
creased from fliyOK3Sl33 to Jiai9513
or 13 per cent
The allowances for clerks In flrst and
second class offices have increased from
5103S2tt3l to fll23314 or 13 per cent
Ill tho free delivery branch of the ser
vice the number of free delivery offices
has increased from C27 -to 860 or 36 per
cent
The number of carriers has increased
from 12534 to 1C3SU or 2S per cent
The cost of the service has increased
from ir713S61 to 1T526O0 or 21 per
cent with an increase of gross receipts
at free delivery offices of from 32307604
lo J74293304 or 41 per cent
Hural Tree llcllvcT
Within tho same period the rural free
delivery service has been established and
on June I 3901 tho carrier force had
grown t 4301 which by December will
number 6000 delivering mail dally to
1000000 people
The transactions of the money order
business during tho same five jears have
increased from J1SS07105627 lo the enor
mous sum of 291G18CS0S9 or CO per
cent
So too In every other branch and di
vision of the service there have been con
stant and unusual advances
In regard to the classification of the
rural delivery service Mr Johnson sug
gests that Congress be asked to make an
appropriation In the sanie manner a3 other
appropriations are made without further
designating it as experimental He be
lieves the time has arrived when th s
service must be deemed to have passed
bevond the experimental stage and to be
regarded as one of the established agen
cies of the Department
Civil sctv ice for HurW Carriers
Speaking of tho force of rural carriers
and their efilcienty Mr Johnson says
that there is no good reason why they
should not have the prptegtion and sense
of security which the civil service sys
tem throws over Incumbents of office in
tho classified service
Kor postmasters salaries Mr Johnson
recommends an appropriation of 20000
C10 to cover compensation for the fiscal
jear ending June 30 IStWand aio urges
upon Congress the necessity for a reclass
ification of postoflicc clerks In first and
second class postofllcca
The total tost of the fre delivery hys
tcm per annum lo the Oepartment for the
jnaintenance of the service is at the rato
of on- 0 cents for eacBpersbn enjoying
Its cdnvenlencc and facilities
To IXiihllMh n Aevr Position
Under the caption Supervisors of Let
ter Carriers Mr Johnson has the follow
ing to say
To tighten the administrative grasp on
the enlarging service I have the honor to
recommend that all the large postoffices
especially those employing as many as
fifty lotter carriers an emplove bo as
signed or appointed to have exclusive
charge of the letter carrier force that
such ofilcials be designated as supervis
ors of carriers and attached to the free
delivery service also that all present
cmploves under whatever name or title
who are performing the duties of super
intending or directing letter carriers be
transferred to the rolls of the free deliv
ery division
Mr Johnson recommends that remedial
steps be taken before Ihe increased per
centage of superannuation of carriers be
gins to weigh heavily upon tho efficiency
of the service As the number of veteran
letter carrier grows larger with each
year the question of what to do with the
old and worn out members is a progres
sive one
IlutliliiiK for the Supply 111 Inlini
The erection of a new building for the
supply division is lecomraended by Mr
Johnson He recommends that the Post
master General be authorized to make ar
rangement for the erection of a suitable
building by some private owner upon an
agreement to lease the same for a term
of not less than five Jcara at a rental of
3300 per annum
Builders or others says Mr John
son will not undertake to provide s icb
htructure unless they liavo the
of renting it for a period of years

tho Secretary of the lliierlor jesterday
Colonel PlunKelt 13 a wcif known charac
ter of the plains having been associated
with many Indian tribes as their repre

The colonel told the Secretary of the
Interior that his disposition of tho Gov

everyone
I think Secretary Hitchcock is one of
tho fairest men that has ever occupied
the position of Secretary of tho Inte

left the Department He has shown his
justice in many ways not only in bis
opening of the Wichita und Comanche

According to reports received yesterday
at the Surgeon Generals office the Ano

army surgeons wherever found and put
to death without mercy
For some time Anopheles tulifex the
mosquito who injects yellow fever germs
beneath the skin of the American sctdier
has had the bulk of attention but this
is now turned to his cousin Macullpen
nis whose specialty is the dissemination
of malaria seeds A number of interesting
experiments have been performed which
tend to prove that this peculiar breed of
mosquito shuns the light It has been
found that a dark dado painted around tho
walls of a whitewashed room would at
tract every ouo of these pests within its
limits
rpiTliiient Willi tnliir Imps
Working upon this principle traps wero
made and painted of various colors rang
ing from dark navy blue down to light
tints of green jeliovv and mauve and
even white All of theso were set for
seventeen days in as nearly equally ad
vantageous places as possible and tho re
sults noted The navy blue box scored
10S victims brown and dark red came
next while white caught only two and
yellow was absolutely repellant to the
winged nuisances that color not scoring
a catch
Practical lessons drawn from these ex
periments will Include the discarding of
the navy blue armv shirt in malarial re
gions and substitution of white of n very
light jeliovv shade of khaki for general
wear of tho troops serving in Cuba or
