The postal authorities recently de
cided to cut down the number of free
deliveries in the residential part of New
York from seven to four daily. Very
naturally, and properly enough, a great
outcry followed. Put ome of the reas
on advanced to show the injustice of
cutting down the mail facilitie are quite
unworthy of the newspaper of a great
metropolis. The cutting down of these
deliveries was made on the ground of
economy. And on thl much ado is
made. We are told that the govern
tnent has no right to economic in a
iiostoflleo centre that yields a great
profit, that if the postal deficit must be
cut down by introducing economies, the
economies 'should bo made at the
"back wood" post ollke that do not
cam expense. J bus we are told that
last year the receipts of ail the post
office included within the present city
of New York were $0,182,000. and that
the total expenditure amounted to
f l-.137.0OO. thu leaving "a net pront
of more than 5,000,000." Hut of the
postal expenditures of the government,
full one third or over :10,000,000 are
for transportation and surely a share of
these expenditure ought to e charged
to the New York post office before we go
to summlnu: no any protir.
And then we wonder if New Yorkers do
not send a letter now and then to
"backwoods" post office maintained at
"a loss" to the government. And If
they do, do not those New Yorker renp
the benefit of that "back woods" post
office just a much as such ' back woods"
office benefit tho receivers of the letters,
and if so is it not fair that the cost
should be divided between them? The
New Yorker should disabuse himself of
the idea that he is being taxed to make
up the deficit of the "back woods" post
offices, for he uses and profit from the
use of such post office just a much as
any one else. The American.
