Leading Candidate for Sheriff iuiiwmwwiumi3 Cm HOPE TO RETAIN MAIL DELIVERY FROM LEWISBURG BELIEVER THAT SUSPENSION OR DER MEANS RETENTION OF THE SERVICE. BRINGS THE MAIL HOURS EARLIER Schedules Have Been Remarkably . Maintained Since the Service Was Started All Depends on the Report of Inspectors. (From Wednesday's Daily Herald.) . With the suspension of the order for the discontinuance of the star j truck routes from Lewisburg to Co ( lumbia and from Columbia to Mt. j Pleasant and Lawrenceburg it is be I lieved that there is a good prospect j for the continued operations of these ! routes, . . ' When the order was issued tor the discontinuance of these route3 Kepre j sentative Lemuel P. Padgett, of this i district immediately got busy. He at I once went to the ofBffice of the sec ond assistant postmaster general and protested that to undoovhai bail been done In this 'terrHr rirthe prompt delivery of mail wul j be & great in justice. So earnest was Mr. Padgett and so convincing his arguments that he finally prevailed on the department to suspend the order and give time for an investigation. This was done. It is expected that the inspectors will at once make a thorough investi gation of the routes. Final action will depend altogether upon the report that they make. The star service from Lewisburg serves a great many offices and routes and patrons. Leav ing Lewisburg on the arrival of train No. 1 from Nashville and the North this route serves Culleoka and its five rural routes and Columbia and the ten routes out from here. The mail is then sent to Hickman county and to Lawrence county and by traiji con nections other patrons of the post offlce are served. The early morning mail from Nash ville and the north is brought into Co lumbia more than two hours earlies than would bo the case if the route w as no in operation. From a stand poinfof maintaining schedules the ser vice has been remarwabiy good. Only on a comparatively few occasions has the truck been very late in arriving here and it is usually right on time. The trucks have hauled a good many passengers and have in that way been of service to the public. It is understood that the order is sued for the discontinuance of the ser vice was in line with the policy .of economy that Postmaster General Hays has inaugurated. Nevertheless he has stated that there would be no j economies that would interfere with the prompt and efficient delivery of the mails.
