A Law Regulating the Carrying of
Washington, Jan. 29. The postmas
ter general has sept the house committee
on post offices and post roads his Opin
ions on the bouse bill which'' requires
railroad companies to carry iiaila at a
rate of compensation fixed by law. He
points out the present condition of the
law, under which any railroad company
may refuse to take mail, and by 'which
the department can secure their passage
by contract only, and suggests that the
present system of law by which the
service may be stopped at the caprice of
the carrier constitutes a reproach to a
government established to promote the
public welfare.; The committee unani
mously voted to report the bill. It pro
vides that if any railway company shall
refuse or neglect to carry mails upon any
trains upon which the postmaster general
may require such scryice, or willfully re
fuse to obey any law regarding the
transportation of mails, it shall be liable
to a penalty not exceeding $1,000 for
each day in which such refual or neglect
shall be persisted in. r , f
The postmaster general will tomorrow
communicate to the committee his 'views
on the proposed horizontal redaction
compensation to railroads for carrying
mails. He-will advise against the pro
posed measure as beinsr inexpedient at
this time, and to some extent unfair.
The postmaster general has sent Chair
man Blount, of the he use . committee oh
postoffice and postroads, a proposed plan
for the classification of clerks in all first
and second class po9toffie.es. The general
effect of this classification, it is said,'
would be to increase the aggregate salar
ies by about $300,000.
