Omaha, Jan. 20th, 1S68.
We print in this issue a letter from
Geo. XV. ilcLellati, Second Assistant
Pjst Master General, to Hen. T. W.
Tipton, which will explain itself. Our
friend A. W. Gray and others at Tecum
eeh, will find ia this an answer to their
questions which they have many times
usked, but until now have failed tore
ceive a eatisfactorv answer, ihe want
of this increased service is pressing, and
we hope there will be no delay on the
j'art of contractor Miles in furnishing it
L. D. Robison, the sub-contractor, is
already out on the route to make the
necessary arrangments to run a tri
weekly back for the accommodation cf
passengers from lirownville to Crab
Orchard.' We "Lope thd Department
will increase the service to a tri-weekly
from Crab Orchard to Beatrice, which
we see by the said letter they are willing
Senator Tipton will do the country
valuable service by sseing that the daily
mail from Rub to Falls City is continued'
to Pawnee City. There is much com
plaint that mail matter accumulates at
Falls City, and that much of it is laid
ever from one week to the next for want
cf suGeisnt transportation U take it on
when it should go. These are com
plaints that need attention. We have
j-ist returned from that section of the
State, and know that th3 complaints are
general. All spaak approvingly of our
Congressional Delegation, and realize
that they ate anxious to serve their con
tti:u?ncy. VAsi;ir;cTCx, March 11, 'CS.
Sir: Ia reply io your letter of the
10ih inst., asking if route 14,420 had
been extended to Beatrice, you ore in
formed that no order to that effect has
teen made by this office, there being
already service between Crab Orchard
and Beatrice; and Crab Orchard being
the terminus of route 14,420, the
Department has no authority under the
law to extend the Brownville route to
Beatrice, for tho reason that it would
result in double service over the same
rcute under iwo contracts. . -
If contractor TJiles- will accept the
very: reasonable proposition made htm
more than a year since fcr two addit'ohal
trips on roite 11,420, there will be no
trouble about increasing the other ser
vice so as to at once alcrd the additional
mail facilities petitioned for from Brow
