retary Gage continues to press up
on Congress a bill the object lie

sult of which is to throw doubts
upon the sincerity ot the presi

The Chicago Record’s postal
savings bank bill was introduced
in the house of representatives on
the opening day of the congress
ional session by Representatives
Loriiner, the Chicago membsr of
the house committee on postoffi
ces and postroads. The bill was
referred at once to the postoflice
committee, according to the usual
custom. It was introduced in the
senate a day or two later by
Senator Mason, who is a member
of the senate postoflice com
mittee. It is upon these commit
tees that attention must center
for the present of those interested
in the passage of a law lor the
establishment of the postal sav
ings bank system. The earnest
agitation among the people has
forced upon all the members of
congress consideration of this
subject, with the result that it is
discussed in Washington to an
extent that it never has before.
The chairman of the house com
mittee is an opponent of the postal
bank idea, but other leading mem
bers are friendly to the plan. The
first and, indeed, the severest
test of strength, therefore, must
come in the postoflice committee.
If a postal savings bank bill is re
ported favorably by that commit
tee and brought to a vote m the
house, there can be but little
doubt ot the outcome on the floor.
Fortunately, ns the result ot
popular agitation, and because of
the aggressive spirit which the
lnendsof the measure in congress
are manifesting, the subject is
one that cannot be ignored or
pigeonholed. Never before has
the number ot members actively
interested in the success of this
project been so great. Sentiment
in favor of postal savings banks
seems to be even stronger in the
senate than among the members
of the house. It is expected that
a bill will be reported from the
senate committee without great
difliuulty, with the chances good
for its passage through the senate.
The more that members of con
gress, and especially of the post
office committees, can be made to
feel individually the deep inter
est of the public in this matter
the more likely will they be to
take early action looking to the
establishment of the postal sav
ings bank system.—Chicago liec
