Te Inspect Atlantic Defenses.
Members of the Taft rortincation board
who do not accompany the secretary of
war to Panama have arranged for a trip
of Investigation to Include the entire Atlan
tic coast from NarragansAtt In Rhode Is
land to Galveston Tex. These officers have
already made an Investigation of the coast
from the Canadian boundary to Narragan
sett. and the contemplated tour will afford
them an opportunity to ascertain what Is
necessary In the way of additional fortifica
tions for the remainder of the Atlantic
: coast, so that a complete report can be
made for the use of congress. The officers
will travel mostly by rail, but will use
such vessels as are available along the
coast to take them from point to point,
necessary for their Investigation.
Estimate for Army Expenses.
Becretary Taft has transmitted to the
treasury department his estimates of the
appropriations for the War department for
1307. These aggregate I104.98S.287.T5 being
3.7n.22.52 less that the total appropria
tions made by congress for the use of the
War department for the current fiscal year
ending June SO, ions.
The amount estimated as necessary for
the military establishment, which embraces
the cost of maintenance of the army and of
the military academy at West Point Is 70,.
170.71 being i"!39,7S1 less than the appropria
tion the present yt-ar and II, 591.437 less than
the estimates mads a year ago. .
Under the head of public works, military
and civil, which Includes the construction
of seacoast fortifications, military posts,
etc., and the Improvement of rivers and
harbors, of various national parks through
out the country and of certain public build
ings and grounds In and around Washing
ton the estimates call for appropriations
amounting In the aggregate to fr7.01t.129 W
for the fiscal year ending June 10, 1907, as
compared with t3S.S92.MS.25, which is the
amount of current appropriations for
similar appropriations. This is a reduction
The estimates submitted for the civil
establishments which includes the pay of
the clerical force, rent of buildings and
other running expenses of the department
In Washington are 11.670.074. This Is an In
crease of 11,310, the current appropriations
under this head aggregating S1.SCS.76S,
. The amounts estimated for miscellaneous
objects aggregate S6.931.341, a net decrease
of S3.AM.27 from the appropriations for the
current fiscal year.
Under this bead Is Included the nutlmste
for the National home for disabled volun
teer soldiers, which Is submitted by the
secretary of war as required by law. The
War department, however, has no super
vision over the expenditure of these funds
and no right to change the estimate.
The estimates submitted by the board of
managers of the National home for dis
abled volunteer souldlers are S220.585 In ex
cess of present appropriations for the
Cortelyon Talks to Postmasters.
The convention of National league post
masters of the fourth class offices of the
United States came to an end this after
noon when the delegates ere received by
Postmaster General Cortelyou. After wel
coming them Mr. Cortelyou made an ad
dress, in which he reiterated the attitude
of the Postofflce department to organisa
tions within its ranks, and discussed con
templated changes In organisation and
administration methods. He pointed out
that organizations within the department
to receive its sanction in any degree, must :
have their object improvements In the ser
vice or be of a purely fraternal or bene
ficial character, and that he recognized
every employe as an Individual to be ap
pointed, advanced, transferred and in all
respects treated upon merit. The postmas
ter general said:
In April last, the prencnt policy of the
department regarding fourth class offices
was announced, namely, that incumbents
will be retained during satisfactory ser
vices. This is being adhered to strictly,
and I am confident that a continued adher
ence to It will result In substantial improvement.
The department has carefully considered '
a number of changes In organization and
administration which we believe will be
beneficial. Among other things, we expect
to reduce rather than Increase the number
of instructions sent to you. We thall en- ,
deavor to simplify the blanks you use. We
shall exact of you system in the conduct
of your offices, but a system that Is busi
nesslike and freed as rapidly as possible
from unnecessary detail. We shall innist
that every postofflce shall be kept clean,
that Us records shall be ready for inspec
tion at any time, that the nustmusters and
employes shall be attentive to their duties
apd courteous to the public.
Pnblle Printer's f nareeM Ions.
Acting Public Printer Rlcketts today nnd s
several suggestions for the saving of money
to the government In its public printing
to the Joint committee on printing of the
senate and house of representatives. A
volume of 4S0 pages was exhibited by Mr.
Rlcketts, being one of twenty-four such
volumes Issued annually by the patent office
and containing pictures and descriptions of
patents Issued. It was the belief of Ml.
Rlcketts that $100,000 a year might be saved
In the patent office printing alone by a
condensation of the subject matter alpnj.
He also ventured the Information that the
$400 annual requisition for franked envel
opes for members of the s-nate and house
was more than the actual requirement.
By reason of the wages of the employes
of the government bindery being 25 per
cent higher than In commercial offices, Mr.
Rlcketts was of the opinion that much of
the binding done for the government could
be done putslde with a great saving to the
Mr. Rlcketts expressed the opinion that 20
per rent of the present cost of composition
Is due to correction In proofs, which ex
pense he showed could be saved by more
careful editing before sending copy to ths
Representative Landls, chairman of the
commission, took occasion during the hear
ing to say that he thought that 'vanity"
Is In a measure responsible for the Immense
amount of printing turned out by the print
ing office. The proportion was, he thought,
largely dependent upon the prominence of
the author's names on the title pages.
No Discrimination Against Sailors.
Secretary Bonaparte has directed the dis
missal of an employe of the Norfolk navy
yard as a result uf a 00m plaint which came
to the department that tha employe, after
having agreed to leu two rooms of his
house to a macbloljit's mat serving with
the reserve torpedo flotilla, refused to carry
out the agreement because It would be
necessary for the machinist's mate to come
to his residence dressed In the tfniform of a
petty officer of the United States navy.
The employe. It has been explained to the
department, said that neither he nor his
wife had any objection to the uniform, but
owing to the prejudice which existed in tin
town of Berkeley against sailors, he felt
It due to his family In order to maintain
their position In the town, that he should
refuse to allow a sailor to reside In his

WALTER BAKER & CO. Ltd.
LOS ANGELES. Cal., Oct. J7.-The first
day s session of the thirty-second annual
convention of the National Woman's
Christian Temperance union was devoted
to routine matters. Devotional exorcises,
the appointment of committees, and the
hearing of reports by the executive officials
of the organization occupied almost the
entire morning and afternoon sessions. The
feature of the first session was the annual
address of the president, Mrs. Lillian M.
Stevens of Maine.
Mrs. Stevens' address recited the work
of the Woman's Christian Temporance
union during the last year, commented
uponMhe various legislative measures the
organization Is urging, both In state legis
latures and In the national legislatures, and
spoke very encouragingly of tho future
growth of the temperance movement.
Address of Mrs. Stevens.
In her annual address, Mrs. Stevens re
viewed the developments of the past year
and saw much reason for encouragement.
Upon the subject of reform bills Intro
duced In the last congress and which were
acted upon said:
At mention of there is before 5-ou vis
ions of petitions you have circulated, mem
ories of weary milts you have traveled,
rebuffs you have endured, arguments you
have presented, delays and poHtponeinents.
but no memories of defeat, for you have
wrought with a triumphant spirit, and the
same spirit is ours today as we look for
ward to the coming months.
Mr). Stevens was positive in her attitude
against the re-establishment of the army
canteen. She read letters from Secretary
of War Taft and ethers, showing that army
officers as a rule, claim there Is more
drunkenness among enlisted men since the
canteen haa been abolished than before,
but she Insisted that no statistics have
been complied to support their position.
The attempt to revive the canteen Is only
a small part of the work of the liquor ele
ment of this country, and I ronndently
predict that congress will take no adverse
action the coming winter.
Opposes Gothenbnrsr System.
Mrs. Stevens touched on all the questions
with which the temperance union concerns
itself, Including Mormonism, the purity
crusade, patent medicines and the Gothen
burg system of regulating the liquor
Mrs. Stevens declared the Woman's Chris
tian Temperance union to be unqualifiedly
opposed to the Gothenburg system, which
she considered would be a compromise with
the liquor interests.
Mrs. Stevens saw much to encourage the
advocates of equal suffrage, and believes
the time to be near when all women as
well as men, may exercise the privilege of
