Recent developenients in the Post office situation have served to con vince the postal officials that former Superintendent of Free Delivery Ma chen bas left more then a record of dishonesty and corruption as a legacy to those who are now tryinK to brlnK the free delivery service, and especi ally the rural free delivery routes, within the pale of businesslike princi ples. A lively campaign is being In augurated by those still friendly to Machen and those who have benefib ted from his conscienceless adminis tration of his office, to have the rural service transferred from the super vision of Fourth Assistant Postmas ter General Bristow. Mr. Bristow has, since he assumed the direction of this branch, insisted that the regula tions shall be adhered to and he has further abolished the system whereby the greatest number of rural routes f e u to the districts of the most Influ ential Congressmen. Of course, Brls tow'g purpose is a good 0110 and Will, end, result in the best service for the largest number of persons, but meanwhile those who have heretofore . , . . dictated affairs are deeply incensed that their Word will be no longer law to the postal officials. Acting Super intendent Fusnes has asked for a rat ing of all free delivery carriers, In spectors and agents and so many of these are the protegeB of Machen, they are filled with fear and are using their Influence with members of Con gress to secure a curtailment of Bris tow^ power and, if possible, his dis missal from the position be has so well filled. The record of the free delivery ser vice for the month of July completely belies the claim that it will be crip pled by Bristow, the facts being that during that month there were 2,435 rural routes established as against u total of 3,604 for the entire fiscal year eliding with June. In this connec tion It Is Interesting to note that the condition of the appropriation makes it possible to establish 4,000 more routes during the current fiscal year. Just as the public began to imagine that the Postoffice Investigation was drawing to a close, the Washington grand jury returned an important butch of indictments. These covered four cases of swindling, for all of which August W. Machen, former general superintendent of free deliv ery, was responsible, and Involved be sides himself, seven of bis confeder ates. The evidence presented to the grand jury showed that Machen, by means of fraudulent contracts let for carriers' bags, registered letter cases, painting mail boxes etc., had swin dled the government out of not less than $75,000, probably much more. Among those Indicted as confederates Machen were William Gordon Crawford, manager of the Postal De- vice & Lock Co., of New York, him- self a prominent club mun of Wash- ington, William C. Long, better known as "Cliff" Long, of Washing- ton but formerly of Ohio, John T. Cupper, mayor of Lockhaven, Penn., and several others. The evidence of by fraud thus far discovered tc have been perpetruted by Machen, demon- strates that he has robbed tbe govern- ment of at least $100.000, this en- tirely exclusive of tbe defalcations of George W. Beavers whose "graft" is believed to be equally extensive. Postmaster General Payne returned to Washington from his trip up tbe New Knglund coast and at first ap peared to have been much benefltted by his rest but less than a week of warm weather and the anxiety inci dent to tbe investigation has set him back again and for the last two days he has been unable to spend more then half a day each at the Depart ment. The delicacy of Mr. Payne's health leads to the belief that he will be compelled to resign from the Cabi net at an early date and already spec ulation as to his successor Is rife. The Secretary of War has completed his investigation of the Llttauer glove case, in which Representative Litta uer of New York Is alleged to have had an illegal interest. Mr. Root c.lls attention to the fact that it was without his province to examiue into the legality of Mr. Littuuer's part in this affair, his whole responsibility be log limited to the officers who award ed the contract. Mr. Root finds that the officers were entirely justified in awarding tbe contract to occ E. R. Lyon and were unaware of Mr. Lltta uer's interest. Mr. Root has, how ever, referred the matter to the At torney General with a request for In structions as to whether he should take any action to recover tbe funds paid out on a contract which he be lieves to have been technically illegal. It docs not appear that Mr. Littauer has the of to ber to for 7:J0 .25 .35 .45 .50 9.99 weil all for pn am am urn am pm urn am tick Ore m À Far DraakwMU, Opta®, elev Dru « M ^ » Or IhtTobacc« Habit ^ ^andNauraslhtnia. |i||*> THE KEELEY %UlC IISTITUTE, pwlght.

Lltta how At In should funds be illegal. has been guilty of aught but an un conscious and technical violation of the law which prohibits members of Congress from sharing in the profits of government contracts. According to his statement, which is practically sustained by Sec. Root, he, as a mem ber of the firm of Littauer Bros., glove manufacturers, had been selling gloves to E. U. Lyon for some years. When the War Department adver tised for bids for soldiers' gauntlets, Lyon put in a bid and Littauer went to the Department to say a good word for Lyon. After having taken the contract, Lyon came to Littauer and told him he had offered tbe gloves at $1.62 per pair. Littauer refused to make a lower price than that to Lyon but finally offered a compromise, lie would furnish the gloves for $1.65, keep accurate account of the cost of manufacture and then divide with Lyon any profit that might ensue. This was done and Littauer and Lyon each made a profit of $1,768.52. What action the Attorney General will take in the premises canuot, of course, be predicted. Every prominent man who goes to Oyster Bay comes back impressed with the President's earnestness in advo cating financial legislation at the next session of Congress. Mr. Roose velt does not altogether believe in the kind of legislation advocated by Wall Street, but be is confident that some measure, whereby an emergency cur rency will be provided, should be en acted. Senator Aldrich, on the other hand, insists that there should be a provision for the extension of the currency on a collateral basis but re mains inexorably opposed to any form of asset currency. Dysentery Cared Without the Aid of a Doctor. "I am just up from a hard spoil of the flux" (dysentery) says Mr. T. A. Pinner, a well known merchant of Drummond, Tenn. "I used one small bottle ot Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea Remedy and was cured without having a doctor. I consider It the best cholera medicine in the world. Ing a doctor when this remedy Is used, for no doctor can prescribe a better medicine for bowel complaint In any form either for children or adults. It never fails and is pleasant to take.
