TWIN GIANTS IN CAHOOTS Tire Western Union and Union Pacific Tele graph Pool , COLONEL DICKEY ON THE RACK Noirt ofMoro Life Saving Appliances on Ocean Steamers A Hatch of Postal Changes AVash- Ini'tun Notc.s. Tho' Twin Monopolies. Before the Ipostofllco committee ) Mr. Dickey , superintendent of the Union Pacific telegraph system , and also a Western Union telegraph superintendent , was the first wllness. Ho said he was paid by both partl'-s lolhe contract. Although there was but one superintendent , the Western bnlon and Union 1'nctlio held separate telegraphic piopcity. The ( recounts for public telegrams atrallioad stations were kept by tlio railroad company and repoited every month , and Iho piocecds of the business equally divided. In thu larger cities the Westcrrr Union had their own offices Hepaintc liom the railroad offices and Iho receipts went to the Western Union. In those cities Iho latlroad company main tained scparalc offices , also , but little public business was offered. The railroad company paid all of their expenses at their own stations except for blanks , h.iltcilcs , etc. The contract provided for n limited number oflrcs to bo erected at a joint expense. Either company could put up additional wires at Its own ex pense. Thuio was a clause in the contract that bound the Union Pacific to give exclus ive preference in its telegraphic business to the Western Union as far as they could le gally do so. There was some question about the raltioad company's right to ruako arr exclusive contract , and that qualification had been added. Tlio Union Pacific regarded the agreement as un economical business ar rangement. Colonel Dlukey explained the relations bo- twcen the Western Union and Union Pacific Telegraph companies and maintained tlio right of the latter , as a land subsidy road , to transfer its franchise to the former company. Ho held that cougiess had no warrant In law to Intcrfeio In thutiansactlou so long as there is redress In the courts. Colonel Dickey w 111 remain hero until next week , probably , when legal arguments pro and con will bo sub mitted to the committee by Iho Baltimore k Ohio and Western Union companies. TIII : i > ii'AiiT.MiNT : : rowim.iss. : : A great number of letters were received at the trcasrny department yesterday and to-day from pcoplo in New York , Chicago , Boston , and other largo elites , asking it Secretary Manning could not compel the transallantlc passenger steamers to rnako more adequalo provision in Iho way ot boals , rafts , etc. , for thapresuivatlon ot lite In case of accidents. Supervising Inspector of Steam Vessels Dumont staled to your coiicspondont to-day that tlio department was powerless to act irr the matter , except in cases where tiio ves sel was outward bound. Vessels bound to Amoiica fiom foreign lands are regulated by the laws of those countries , and the United States authorities could do nothing moiolhan protest It they cairlcd no life sav ing appliances whatsoever. As a matter of fact , continued General Dumont , all these vessels are provided with a sufficient number of boats to save piobably 4000 or 500 people , arrd It Is very unusual for vessels leaving our shores lo carry more than that number of pissengers. When they begin doing so wo will have an opportunity of enforcing tlio statutes bcailug upon tlmt subject. N I-OSTAI , criAirar.s. rostmaslors' commissions have been Issued to Win. S.

Weaver's Resolution Alined nt Oh- Jpctoi Itcach of Now York. WASIUXOTO.V , Maich 17. ( Special. ] One of the principal topics of conversation In ho cloak looms of Iho house dining the past cw dajs has bnon the resolution Intioduced ast week by llepiesentatlvo Weaver of Nu- iiasku. This resolution , aftersottlng forth n the ptcamblo that thcro are always ono or iioro cranks in congress , provided for n change In Iho rules whereby It would bo Im- > osslbo ! for ono member to block Iho entire work of the house by an "objection. " Of course the lesohitton was aimed at Mr. Beach of New York , who has developed Into a full-blown objector. Beach is ono of those congressmen who have solved several terms without being able to do anj thing to secure lotice. These men are of no carlhly use lo hell couslilucrrts or themselves ; they know his fact well and are anxious for notoriety , cnce their otherwise Incxplalmible course , it Is strange , too , that they should be so well reated by their associates. There Is lltllo loubt that Beach has nioio power n tlio lionso to-day than any other ono man. If ho should ask uniui- mous consent to call up any ncasnro In which ho is interested It s probable that It would bo given without a single word In opposition. Ho knows this vciy well and is preparing to use his advan- ; agc. Fortunately he represents an agucul- lurar constituency ; and Is , therefore , very much inteiested In Iho pending bills touching jogus butter. It Is reported that lie intends to nso the power which ho has been recently so assldulously cultivating to aid in the passage sago of thu bill to tax oleonuugailno out of existence. If ho can and will do this the westein members who have cmscd him so Freely of late will forgive oveiything and will oven acknowledge lliat ho has some vir tues which they have hciotoloro overlooked. Tlio piospeets lor the passage of Ibis bill are very much hi ighter lo-day than they weic a short llmo ago , and it may bo that after all the fanners will scenic some recognition from congress. _ _ .

JU. J. Dunne in L'hicci'jo Curtail. Amonp the musses of our people in Iho larger cities , there exists an "iiToprcssi- blo conflict" between the desire of spend ing nnd the duly of saving. Ou lire ono Iisiml are ranged the nmiry enticements ( held out to everyone having u surplus over Iho nbsolulo requirements of lilo ) to indulge in extravagance in dress , mode of living or amusement ; or to gratify some moro pernicious passion , These enticements continually tempt llio sns- coptiblo side of mini's nnlnvo to needless expenditure. On the other hand , the hope of becoming a householder and property owneror n business mini , urges the provident side lo lay up a part of the earnings , so that in time such hopes may bo rcnli/.ed. Often , too often , alas I the allurements addressed to the weaker hiilo of ono's na ture are too strong too liisciiwting to bo resisted. Hut in ninny cases those who would .save small sinus put of their incomes or earnings , can lind no plncu where they enrr invest Ihcm vvilh confi dence in their seouiity. This lends to the inquiry , how can the wage-worker safely invest his savings ? Anil this is a problem thut , should lav the mind of Iho philanthropist and .statesman until a correct .solution in discovered , for nothing will conducu moro to the happi- iio-s of llio people to tlio peace of our cities , and lo tlio .stability of our instHu- lions , than to have llio working classes owners of part of the money capital of Iho countiy. The Century for I'obruary , ISSO , con tains an article advocating tlio establish ment of postal savings banks by tlio gov ernment. To Kiiclra project thuro nro ob jections , Jf .so successful us to accom plish anything of pniclical value , llio hanks would lock up huge HIIIIIH of money. 'lhu | government could not use it , or loan it , and ills not pioposed to pay inlercrit on deposits , So thus a largo amount ot the money of Iho country would bo idle capital. Again , it ih not tlio province of the government lo do that which Is being ilonu , or can ho done , by private enterprise. The ( government fafinulil only act when , fiom any cause , individual action would not bo elliciont. Savings banks have long been : i medium by whioh tlio savings of the people ple have boon galhorcd. Unfnrtmmloly , ihoy have boon somowhut in disci edit since Ihe panic of 1H7J1 caused BO many lo collapse , from having invested their depositors' funds in property of an un certain or speculative character , which , as soon as Ihu financial storm burst , do- prccalcil in value. . Hut building associations so called nro formed upon n fafu and pormnnent plan , nnd ail'urd lo wngu-workcrs and persons of smnll means , nil the advan tages of well-conducted savings haius , together with bcnclits iiotaltuinublu from lliusu littler institutions , The niiino building association , by which thej' are commonly known , is somewhat inislcailiiijj , since they do not engage in building. They piopurly tdioiiid bo-culled mutual , or co-operative saving und loan associations , lor they SHVU Iho wonpy ot some of the members lo leucj it to others. When ilrst organi/.cd In I'nglnnd. their object was to. buy. tracts of him ) -nut elect buildings , which 'were soUl to i.he members. Hut tills fenluro hns bcoa abandoned in Eiiglnnd , nnd never ob tniucd in this country. The modus operand ! of those nssoctn * lions , though In some degree Intricate in detail is , nevertheless , simple nnd cnsily uiulur.stood. Tlio slock is generally is sued in consecutive numbered scries. Kach series is opened for a limited time , during which persons mny subscribe ferns ns many shares , ( not exceeding ono hun dred ) as they desire. Tlio par vnluo of caeh slum is $100 , nud unymont is made lit small monthly installments , usually lifty cents. At encli monthly mcotinii llio money in the trensury is of fered nt auction , nnd the member ollbr- lug the highest boilns or premium , ling the option of borrow ing nny pail of the monoy. A. member must own ono share for each ono hundred borrowed , und ho ro | > nys the loan by paying the monthly install ments until his siiHITS attain par value. Ho also pays interest on the sum bor rowed , in monthly installments. To secure - cure llio paviiionl by him of Iheso install * men Is , the borrower is required lo o.\o- cute n mortgage , on ronl property , of HUllicieut value to satisfy the board of di rectors. When , by reason of these pay ments of thn monthly installment * , ami Iho profits ncorulng from the loans , the shares in any soiies reach the pnr vnluo , then Iho borrowing members of stock iu Hint series receive their mortgage ! ' , die- charged of any further obligation , nml the non-borrowing ; members receive Iu money ono hundred dollars for each share they hold. Thus , it will bo observed , Hint , nllliongh called loans , these transactions uro in fact advances by the assoeintion to tlio inemberd of thu par value of slmros not yet paid for , nnd Ihu secmily i.sgivon , not lo repay n loan of n certain .sum nt n lived dnto , but to secure prompt fulfill ment by tno members of their obligations to pay for their stock In monthly instal ments nnd also tlio interest on the sums advanced. , The afiairs of these associations are managed by boards of directors elected by the stockholders. Tlieso olliccrs nro not salaried , nud these having direct charge of the funds nro required to give bonds for llio faithful performance of their duties , und llio safe custody of the funds. The beneficial features of these associ ations are : 1. They nro pprmnrient ; tlmt is , each scries is opened nt staled periods , and be ing kept distincl from tlio others , it ad vances progressively in ago and vnluo until it matures at its par value , when it is pnid out to the mcmbois holding it and disappears , lo be followed in an endless chain by others. Secondly. They are safe as safe ns human ingenuity , skill and cnro onii mnkc uriy business transaction. As fast as tiio money is received , it is pnid out to members , who give nrnplo and adequate security. The business is done in open meeting , so thnt ouch member may know to whom and upon what security a loan is madu. Tlio person re ceiving this loan or advance commences immediately to repay it , so that Iho amount duo from him constantly decreases - creases , nnd the security as steadily in creases. This prevents any tluctuatiou irr the vnluo of the property from serious ly impairing its sufiioioney us security. There is no chance for cnrbe/.y.lcnient of any large sum by any officer , and as the notes and mortgnjtjos nro not in the usual form of commercial paper , they are not negotiable , so that Ihoy cannot bo fraudulently hypothecated or disposed of. Thirdly. These associations legilr- matcly earn largo proltls. As llio money is taken at piemimiij draws good in- Iciest , and is returned rn monthly sums , to be again issued , it will bo readily scon that the investment is lucrative , nnd not to the disadvantage of llio borrowing member , who participates equally aa the others , in tlio profits lo the scries. This prolilnblc feature is owing to the constant use of nil the small sums of the dillcreut members , ns well us to the economical and conservative manner iu which these inslHutions should bo con ducted. It is as if blpckholdci's ot n national bunk wore to divide the prolilfl among all the depositors , each to ro- ceivc a share proportionate to his deposit - posit , and cacli to bo charged interest in proportion to thu accommodations ho received. Fourthly. They nrc convenient. The smnllcst amounts , down to lifty cents , may ho invested ; the shines may oo sur rendered and the money paid on them withdrawn , at any time , and interest is allowed on such sums. Such arc , in brief , the leading features of tlioso very buirelrcent instiltilions. Thnt Ihoy have proved satisfactory to the working classes ah n means of investing their small savings , is demonstrated by their sudden growth in numbers in our largo cities , and by the largo amount of money the older ones ones have collected from and distributed among their mem bers. That they accompli-h a good work is manifest. Their boiiuliceiit inlliioiico hns not ended in merely inducing the saving or iiiouoy , but oxlouds to thu erec tion ot thousands of comfortable homes ( by members ) out of money advanced by tlieso associations. And so long as these corporations nro conducted wisely , eco nomically and honestly Ihoy will reeulvo and merit support. But care , great euro , must bo taken as lo whom the manage- niiuil is intrusted. The danger lies In Improper not lo say dishonest man agement. If the a flairs of Mich an insti tution uro rommlUcd lo men not vorscd in business pui'Miits , not qualified by training to deal In lingo financial Iran- snclioiiH , what can bu expected but la- menliiblo failure , On account of llio cne with which these associations cnn bu formed , many are organised by incompetent persons , and Iho directs ot disaster occurring to. ono such orgiiiii/iition tire to bo doplorcd , not merely because ot loss oeciining lo its members , but of thu alarm which mny pervade other associations , as to there stability and the security of their money , which would endanger and perhaps des troy them , however well iiiniingcd , In- vcslors should sock institutions' that Imvo been tried nnd whoso ollicera are known to bo capable and honest. Hut , on the whole , I ieol sanguine tlmt n ginnt good will bo clloclod by means of cso instilulions.
