U2.-l'tesldent Tnft lins scut to both houses of congress n speeial mosungo, nceompanlcd by the amiunl report or tho postmaster gen oral for tho fiscal year ended Juno ao, 1011, and tho import of tho federal com mission on socotul cIiish mail matter. Tho president's mossngo Is us follows: To tho Scnnto nud IIouso of Itepro- scntntlves: In trausmltllug the nununl report of tlio postmaster general for tho fiscal year ended Juno 30, 1011, It Rives mo pleasuro to call attention to tho fact Hint tho revenues for tho fiscal year ended Juno J10, 1011. amounted lo$23". S70,G2;i.OO und thnt tho expenditures amounted to $2.17,060,701. -IS, making a surplus of $210,llklL. Tor tho year ended June SO. 1000, the postal servlcu wan In arrears to tho extent of $17, 170,770.47. In tlio Interval this very largo deficit has been changed into n ourpltiH, and that without tho curtail- . niunt of postnL facilities. Indeed, In tho samo tlmo there have been established .1,741 new postofllces, delivery by car rier provided in ISO additional cities and new rural routes established. 2,010 In number and aggregating 00,0.70 miles In extent. Tho force of postal employee? has been Increased by moro than n.000, nud a liberal policy lu tlio uinttt'i" of sala ries has been followed, so that tho amount expended for salaries is now 14,000,000 moro than two years ago. Tho n-era;;o salary has boon Increased fiom S00 to $0G7 for rural carriers, 070 to 51.0S2 for postofllco clerks, 1,021 to $1,0S4 for city letter carriers and 1,103 to 1,183 for railway postal clerics. Ths Postal Cnvlnga System. Tho report shows that tho postal sav ings system was begun experimentally In January. 1011. nud that it has now been extended no as to Include 7.r00 presidential iwstofllcen. whirl. Includes practically nil of tho poslollla-s of that class. Preparations are No being mndo to establish the system at about 40,000 fourth class olllces. Tho de posits in eleven months Imvo reached u total of 511.O00.C00. distributed among 2,710 untlouul hud state banks. The postmaster general recommends, us 1 Imvo dono in previous messages, tho adoption of a parcel host, und tho beginning of this In th6 organization of such servlco on rural routes and in tho city delivery service first. Tho placing of assistant postmasters Jn tho clnssllled service has secured greater ollleleuey. It Is hoped thnt tho snuio thing may bo done with nil tho post masters. Tho report of tho postmaster general Is full of statements of tho Important improvements in tlio organization and methods of tho postal service mudo slnco tho last nnnunl report nud of ton tativo drafts of legislation embodying certain recommendations of the depart ment which need -legislation to carry them out. Opposes Government Control of Tele graph Lines. There Is only ouo rccgiuuiundntion in which U ennnot agree that Is, ono which recommends that tho telegraph lilies in tho United States should bo made a part of the postal system and operated in conjunction with tho mail system. This presents n question of government ownership of public utili ties which nro now being conducted by prlvnto enterprise under franchises from tho government. 1 bellovo that tho true principle Is thnt prlvnto enter prise should bo permitted to carry on hulIi public utilities under due regula tion as to rates by proper authority rather than that the government should itself conduct theui. This principle I favor because I do not think it in ac cordance with tlio best public policy thus greatly to lncrenso tho body of public servants. Of courso if It could bo shown that telegraph ecrvlcc could bo furnished to tho public at a lest; price than it Is now furnished to tho I iiblle by telegraph couipaules nnd with equal efficiency tho argument might bo u strong ono in favor of tho adoption of tho proposition. Itut 1 am not satlsllod from any evi dence thnt If those properties wero taken over by tho government they i mild bo ninnagcd any moro economic ally or tiny moro efficiently or thnt this would onablo tho government to fur nish servlco ut any smaller rate than tho public nro now required to pay by prlvnto companies, 1 cannot speak with too great empha sis of tho Improvement In the po?tofleo department under the present mnmigo ment. Tho cutting down of cost, the shortening of methods.nnil tho Ineronso In elllcloiicy nro shown bj iho statistics nf tho annual report.

Wheeler, prenldmit of tho Awo'ta tlon of Couimoirr of Hie elly of Oil cngo, whoso churaclcr, ability nnd ex perlonco command for their finding" and reconiutendnllons ttm respect r.nd conlldonco of tho congn-.w and the country. Tho report discloses a most oxhaus tlvo and critical Inquiry ln(o (he rub Ject of second clusi i.iall maftpr after adequate notice to all the pnrtlen in interest. Intensive hearings wore held by tho coultulsilon. :it which tlio post- mnstci' general nnd t li second nnd third assistant postmaster general ap peared nnd submitted formal state ment prnscntlug the various conten tions of tlio poitoffiVo department, to gether with all tlio relevant ofllclal (lata and evidence relating to tho cost of handling and transporting scroud cIiish mnll matter. Certain of tho load ing magazines were represented by counsel, while various other publica tions appeared by reprconlativos and were heard In oral argument or permit ted to submit written briefs setting forth their rosppctlvo reasons for op posing n change in the present twinge rato on second class mall. The second and third assistant postmasters gen eral, together with minor officers of the depnrtmont. wero critically rrosn exam ined by the counsel nnd remeientn tlve? of tho periodicals, and nil tlio various phases of the second class post ago problem were made the subject of n most painstaking Investigation,,, Ssyo Increcsa la Justified. The findings of the commission con firm tho view thnt the cost of handling nnd transporting second class mnll matter Is greatly lu excess of tho post age p;-Id nnd that tin lncrenso in tho rato Is not ojijy JustlHei! by tho facts, but is desirable. Tho coitirnfrn'-i report (lint I ho evi dence sul'iii! cd for its consideration Is HUfllcient to wiirrnnt a finding of tho approximate cost of handling nnd transporting the several climws of sec oml class mail Unowii its paid nt tho pound rale, free In county and tran sient miitfer In so far as relates to tlio services of transportation, postofllco cars, railway distribution, rural deliv ery nnd certain other Items of cost, but thnt It Is without ndequato dnta to de termine fhe cost of the general post office -service and also what portion of the cost of certain other aggregate Services Is properly assignable to sec ond class mall matter. It finds thnt In the "fiscal year 1!)0S. tho period for Which the stutlBtlcs for tho iwatofflco department were compiled, the ecst o handling nnd transporting second qlnsri mnll in the Hems oC transportation, postofllco cars, railway dlbtrlbutlon. ru ral delvory mid certain mlHcclhiuosus charges wits approximately fl cents a pound for pnld ut the pound rato mat ter ami for froo In county and transient mutter each approximately 5 cents a pound and that upon this bnsls. us modified by subsequent reduction!-, In the cost of railroad transportation tho cost of paid at tho pound rato mattor for tin services mentioned Is now ap proximately ritj cents a pound, wlillo the cost of free In county nnd transient mutter rouutlus ns formerly namely, ench nt approximately B coots a pound. Slnco tlio couimlnsion linn determined thnt the cost of handling and trans porting second chins mall is approxi mately ri',i cents for matter paid at the pound rate and approximately 0 cents each for free lu county and tran sient raatteiv without Inking Into ac count the i-iwt of tho gnnerai postoffico servl.o H ml lertiiln unawlsuiblo Items of expense, It is apparent thnt tlio ag groguto cost of nil servlco perfurmod by the K)htul establishment In connec tion with this class of mail mntter la considerably nhnve Hint amount. Postal Cervloe Ce!f Suatainlnn. The postal service I? now, fir tho fliht tluie In years,' oppriilei' upon a sell' nust.'ilulur basis, and in my Judgment tlild Ih a wise policy, but It uhould not bo carried out at tlio expense of certain ch'.ssoK of nittlj matter that pay reve nue largely Jii'ckcohii or their coU. It Is not Jtut (hat some clussaj of mall should bo exorbitantly lttxc.1 to luect u delklency mused by olliur clnssoa the revenue from which Is much below tholr cost of !i.ntid!!ng ami carriage.

WILLIAM II. T.U'T. THE COMMISSIQN'S REPORT. f Recommendations Mads Concsrnlng Second Class Mail Matter. Tlio report of tho commission on sec ond class mill I muttur Is nn oxliaustlvo document, containing n hundred pngas of printed matter. The cniumIsIon, In nddltlon to milk ing tho recommendations mentioned lu tho president's message, also gives many i.tatl-'tles showing the relatlvo amounts of tho difforcnt classes of mall matter handled by tho postofllco de partment mid the cost lu detail. Tho cost und methods of handling mqll on railway earn nro also carefully considered. Tho report says In part: The oxlstlng rales on second class matter nro those established by the net of 1670 us nmcuded in 1SSI and ISSo. Incr:s:a In Volumo. Our attention hn-boim directed to tho fact thnt tlio postmasters general In their nnnunl repovts linvo repeatedly commonted upon tho Increase In the volumo of scroud class mnttor nnd upon tho disparity between tho sup posod cost of transporting und han dling It la tlio mails nnd the amount received us postugo. Thslr estimates evidently reflected tho oplulou of tho ofllceni of the depnrtmont, but they wero based upon general oxporleuco In tho (.orvlcoind not upon a scientific ascertainment of cost. Tho first question thnt arises in re gard to tho rato In whether nny dls crlmluutlou should bo mndo between dlfTorent kinds of second class matter. Tho plan proposed of charging a special rato for tho portions of mngaxluos do voted to advertisements seems open to ttrnvo practical objections. Tho amount jf space given to advertising 13 no cri terion of tho odueatlonnl valuo of a mngazlno, nnd if tho uamo provision wero nppllod to newspapers tho at tompt to measuro tho spaco occupied by ndvortlsonients would lnvolvo moro labor tuau Is consistent with tho rapid dispatch of tho dally prcHs. Wo concludo thnt whntovor Incroaso bo raado should apply alike to newspa. pers and porlodh aU ndmlttexl to tho second class and that It is Impracti cable la tho enso of no.wspnpcre to charge a higher rato for space given to ndvcitisemcnts. It has been suggested Unit tho proportion of this spaco should bo limited for all second cjass matter, but tlio true definition of such mnttor Is that which Is devoted primarily to tho tllssoininntlou of news nud of cur rent literatim) and Instruction, nud wo aro not convinced that this can lm mnnnnrnil l,v nn iirllltmi'ir atn,..lnWI f tltmoirUn f BPaC 8lVCn l "dVOr tlsemeut.
