Over six million pieces of mail matter aro sent annually to tlio dead letter ofllco by reason of incorrect, illegible, or deficient address, insuf ficient postage, insecure inclosing, whereby mailer mailed become sep arated from the envelope or wrapper, or the failure to bo called for or de livered' lo tiio person addressed. This is a daily nverngo of over twenty thousand pieces. Of these the greater poitlon either or not called for at tlio poslolllco lo which they arc tlirected, or, In caso of free delivery olllccs, tho addresses cannot bo found, notwithstanding every known nicsns is resorted to on tho part of the postal olllcials to ef fect delivery. Matter sent to the dead letter olllcc, which cannot bo delivered to the per son addressed, is required' lo bo opened In its treatment for tlio pur pose of return to the sender, and if tho name and address of the sender bo not shown or cannot be ascertained from the contents, and It contains no valuable inclosure, it must bo de stroyed . Letters opened and found to con lain any inclosure of obvious value arc entered upon proper records, and, of such, those which do not disclose sufliuicut information to enable them to bo returned arc filed, subject to reclamation upon proper application and identification. Lettcis which conlnin no inclcsurc of obvious value are not rccoulcd. Packages and parcels are recorded and where they do not disclose tho name and address of the owner are filed ; if not called for or claimed within two years they arc disposed of at public auction and tho proceeds covered into the United States treas ury. A large proportion of the packages and parcels sent to the dead letter olllcc fail to be restored to the own ers because of the absence on tlio wrappers or inclosurcs of anything to indicate ownership thereof. Information as to tiio character and nattive of the matter thus re ceived at the dead letter olllcc, and lite conditions and iiillttcuces which occasion its fuiurc to reach the per-s-ns lo whom the senders designed it to go may be of interest, and the mere statement of it carry with it suggestions which may serve tlio public in ils exercise of postal priv ileges. Of the unclaimed and undelivered mail matter received at tlio dead letter olllcc during the past fiscal year, four hundred and Ilfty-one thousand were letters misdirected. Ninety-eight thousand were letters to domestic addresses, "held for postage." One hundred and sixty-five thou sand were letters mainly addressed to persons In care of hotels. Forty-two thousand were letters to fictitious addresses, and principally correspondence relating to what is known as "green goods" or "saw dust" swindles, etc., many of them containing money with orders for tho purchase of these fraudulent goods. A largo proportion were those upon which tho required amount of postage to entitle them to transniis. sion through the mails had not been prepaid, iiisulllcicnt payment being duo lo improper inclosing, whereby a higher rate of postage was re quired. Twenty-eight thousand contained money amounting in all to 8 IS, 012, 00. Four thousand had inclosurcs of postal notes iu small sums under 85, aggregating S5,300. Twenty-seven thousand were found to contain draft", checks, notes, commercial paper, etc., etc., iu tho sum of 81,471,871,00, while forty eight thousand contained paid and concealed obligations, receipts cvi-' denclng payments of money, deed, morlgigcs, general miscellaneous papers, etc., r.lo. Forty-two thousand contained plio togvaps, one thousand contained ar ticles forbidden to bo transmitted through the mails ; and eleven thou sand upon being opened were found to contain lottery tickets, which, under the termf of tho law, aro de clared unmailable. Five bundled and thirly-ono thou sand wore letters, nnd forty-one thousand parcels of printed matter, samples, etc., which had been mailed In foreign countries. Two hundred and fivo thousand wero letters, and forty-seven thou sand were parcels, books, samples of merchandise, etc. Tlio inspectors of tho pcnitenliaiy appointed John N.
