Mr Bhopard , a wool grower from Texas ,
read a pr.por to provo that with sufficient

; Ho wanted the same duty on all wool and

At the reopening of the session on Monday
next Senator Fryo will Introduce n bill au
thorizing and directing the postmaster genor-
alas soon as practicable to forward nil ocean
malls by Amorlcan steamships nnd to make
contracts with tbem for not loss than llvo
nor mora than ten years It Is required that
the ships with which contrncts are made for
trnns-Atlantio service shall have n capacity
of 5,000 tous and n speed of not less than
eighteen knots nn bour , and that those lor
the truns-Paclllo and South Amorlcan trndo
n tonnage of not less than twouty-Qvo hun
dred tons and a speed of not less than four
teen knots ; that they shall bo paid not moro
than $10 and not less than $5 a mlle for the
dlstanco truvoled on their voyogo outward
Anotbor condition is that the vessels , Hko
these of the naval rcservo of England nnd
France , shall bo constructoJ upon mod
els upprovod by the secretary of
tlio unvy nnd bo eultublo for
the use of the govornmout ns cruisers or
transports In time of war The secretary of
the navy is also authorized to detail oftlccrs
from the naval list of the United States for
the command of these vessels whenever It
shall be desired by the owners thereof nnd
to grant such ofllcors leave of absence for a
term or years on bnlf or one-third pay with
out affecting their Btanding in the service or
Impairing their prospects for promotion
For the purpose of educating soatnon ouch
of these shall carry tbroo or four petty offi
cers or cadets , young men Hko these la the
royal mail service of England , who shall bo
apprenticed for a certain term of years and
be given such duties to uorfortn as shall give
them the opportunity to learn from practical
cxperienco tno scicnco of seamanship Tlio
latter condition is thought to bo very im
portant The race of seamen In the
United States is almost extinct Our
younc men can make so much bettor
wages on land nnd live so much more com
fortably that they will no longer consent to
50 to sea us the skipoors of New England
id twenty-five und thirty years ago The
forecastles of our ships are now filled with
foreigners who are willing to work for sucn
low wnges and put up with such bad food
that American boys will not servo with
them There are plenty of young fellows
who would bo glad to go to son ns potty
officers and learn how to navfgato vojsols if
they could have the chance , and to afford
them an opportunity and to cducato a now
generation of practical seamen , this provision
will bo inserted in tha bill , l'ho provision
permitting the detail of navnl oltlcers to
command the ships is also an important ono
Competent oQlcers are very scarce and have
to bo imported from Europe At the same
tlmo , the navy is full of Idla bfuccrs who
would be glad to take berths on merchant
ships , provided hey could do so without
loosing their chances of promotion Tbo

THE ZONA iailMJ
Sonntor Reagan is preparing a bill to Intro
duce in the senate on Monday which is likely
to create as much disturbance in ou r rela
tions with Moxlco us Secretary Wlndom's
recent decision on the importation of lead
ere Mr Keaeun's bill will authorize the
secretary of the treasury to suspend the law
whicb allows the transportation of goods
bound from Europe to Moxlco In bund
through the United States until the govern
ment of Mexico shall abolish what is known
as tbo zona libro , or free zone , along t lie'bor
der Among the laws of our sister republic
there is a strip of country along the Rio
Ornnuo abutting on the United Slates into
which goods mabe imported without the
payment of duties , and it has become a smugglers
gler's resort , much ( to the disadvantage of
honest traders on this side of the boundary
A merchant can purchase his goods in
Europe , have them shipped in bono
from Now York to Paso del Norto ,
Picdrns Negras , Laredo and other oitios on
the Mexican side , and there have them no-
Uvored without the pavmont of any duty
Then by watcblng his chauco ' , ho can smug
gle these goods back in the United States by
carts or wagons or ou pack mules and under
sell the honest dealers who have paid the
regular customs house charges This seri
ously affects the trade of Chicago , St Louis ,
Now Orioans and other cities , and particu
larly of Galveston , • Houston , San Antonio ,
and Dallas , nndtbo resident merchants are
continually making complaints of being
undersold by the smugglers This free zone
hus been the subject of volumes on volumes
of diplomatic correspondence between this
government nnd that of Moxlco for the last
twenty-flvo years , but nothing has over
coma of it The prevailing opinion Is that the
Mexican government would boas glad as wo
to have It abolished , for it is the moans of
losing millions of dollars to its treasury in
customs taxes every year , but the fact is
that tbo smugglers are so strong and rich on
the Itio Grande and so many mon of political
luiluenco are involved with thorn that Presi
dent D'uz ' fears a revolution will follow
Whenever any domonstratioa has been mudo
at tbo City of Moxlco looking to the abolish
ment of the f roe zone the politicians along
the border begin to growl , and quurrols have
occurred us a warning of what may huppen
if tbo ill an Is carried out In fact the
northern tier of states that are included
within the bolt would bo likely to attempt
secession If their merchants were compelled
to pay duties on imported goods
NO EXTI1A ALLOWANCES
Postmasters throughout the country who
are applying for extra allowances to enable
them to procure hotter rooms for tholr offi
ces or secure additional clerical aBslatanco
will bo disappointed in learning that but
little , If anything , can be done for them till
after Juno next , There is a deficiency in
almost every branch of the postal service ,
The lata administration was so anxious to
make a reputation for economy that it did
not teouro suQIclont appropriations from
congress , and only these offices having a
surplus from receipts can hope to get any
assistance tlll'tho next llscal year The
democrats wore simply lucking in the matter
of providing appropriations , " said General
Tynor , the assistant nttornoy general for
tbo postolllco department , referring today to
the lack of funds with which to meet
the demands of the oftlcos at this
time "lho department was liberal
enough because tbo people demanded
postal fucllities , but u domocratla
congress refused to make stiulclent appro-
Griulions The receipts of the ofllco have
een enlarged by the growth .of business
throughout the country , otberwiso tbo post
nftlco uccommodations would bo much lesj
satisfactory than at present , It is the policy
of tha department now to moot the demands
of the people , always exercising proper
economy , yet never denying a reasonable
and Just demand The people are going to
have the best postal fuclllllos under this ad
ministration that can bo secured , The mat
ter of expense is not the first consideration
now ,
