The postal telegraph, or Wanamaker's bill, is pending in the house committee and is found to be a very difficult ques tion to solve. It is an entirely new phase of political economy, and there is much argument pro and con that can, and probably will be, brought out. The committee has given this subject con siderable attention and has not readied an agreement. Automatic Car-f nuplrr. The bill to reorganize the railway mail service of the country and classify its clerks has not been finally acted upon in committee, but there seems to be a disposition among the members to give it a favorable report. Tho bill fixes definitely (lie salaries of postal clerks and carries with it an additional appro priation of $!WO,000 or $-100,000, and for this reason the committee is slower than it otherwise would be in giving its ap proval, but despite this increase in the exiienditures of the government tho members of the committee have about come to the conclusion that the interests of the service demand the changes pro posed, and will probably give the bill a favorable report.

JOHN BULL'S BLUFF. Ho May Mot f'oiue to Our World' Fair At All. - London, May 12.

The Right Hon. Sir James Fergnsson. parliamentary secretary of tho foreign office, said that the question of official participation in the proposed fair oould only be determined after consideration of the advantages which would accrue to British in terests when an invitation to take part in the exhibition was received from the American government.
