POSTAGE TO FOREIGN LANDS
Rates Are Kevised in Many Instances
on Mail Matter. '
DISCLOSES FOB HOLIDAY USE
Letters and Parcels Have Benefited
by the Changes Made by Govern
ment la the Last Few.
Years.
With the approach of the-holiday season
comes the need of Information on . postal
rates to foreign countries. Ths rates have
been changed considerably during the last
few years, so unless one is careful in
sticking the right amount in stamps onto
the letters and holiday tokens he is send
ing abroad, he may expend more money
than Is necessary for the purpose.
Both letter and parcel ratee have bene
fited by the changes, and now Instesd of
having to pay regular rates for weights
over a certain mark, one need only affix
stamps at a lessened rate when the letter
or package weighs more than the ordi
nary. Letters to Great Britain have been
made the subject for one of the largest re.
ductlons in the amount of postage required.
The letter rate to Great Britain Is no.
2 cents per ounce or fraction, while to
other foreign countries In the .postal union
,the rate Is 5 cents for the first ounce or
fraction and cents for each subsequent
ounce.
The parcels post rate is, with a few ex
ceptions, 12 cents per . pound or fraction,
while the weights vary from four pounds
six ounces to eleven pounds. To the
Bahamas and Barbadoes, Bermuda, Bo
livia, Chill, Republic of Colombia, Costa
Rica, Danish West Indies, Ecuador,' Ger
many, England, Ireland and Scotland,
Guatemala. British Guiana, Biltlsh and
Republic of Honduras, Italy, Jamaica, the
Leeward Islands, Newfoundland, Nicar
agua, New Zealand and Fanning Islands,
Peru, Salvador, Trlnadad, TJruguay, Ven
suela and the Windward Islands the rate
is 12 cents per pound or fraction and weight
limit eleven . pounds. To , Australia, Bel
gium, China, Denmark, Hong Kong, Japan
and Cores, Mexico, (to certain offices the
weight Is limited to four pounds six ounces.
while to some parts of the republlo the limit
is eleven pounds), Norway, the Nether
lands and Sweden the rate Is 12 cents per
pound or fraction and the Weight limit is
four pounds six ounces. .
Soma Cannot Be Registered.
To France, England, Ireland and Scot
land. Italy, Uruguay and The Netherlands
articles sent by parcels vost cannot be
registered, being transmitted in the ordi
nary mails only. To all other paroels post
countries packages may be registered on
payment of the registry fee. which Is 6
cents In addition to the regular oostage, all
paid In stamps, to be attached to the
parcel. ,
To secure advantage of rates to the coun
tries enumerated it Is, necessary to procure
at the postofflce, registry or stamp divi
sion, a blank declaration tag, which must
be filled out by the sender and the parcel.
If to be registered, presented at the registry
division and a receipt procured, but If the
parcel is not to be registered It musj be
submitted to the superintendent of malls,
and If properly prepared the parcel will be
dispatched. Where It Is possible the postal
authorities advise the public to use the
registered mall, as this Insures safety
and proper delivery. Should the sender of
a registered letter or parcel desire It, a
receipt will be obtained from the addressee,
on delivery, and It will be mailed to the
sender without additional cost. To procure
a return receipt, the sender must endorse
on tht face of the letter or parcel, mailed to
a foreign county, the words "return receipt
demanded."
Mall matter for foreign countries must
be addressed in ink, never with indelible
pencil nor copying ink.
Postage stamps should be placed on the
face, upper right hand corner, of the article
or letter to be mailed, never on the back.
The department has Issued, for free dis
tribution, a small pamphlet, In which will
be found many pointers of general Infor
mation on postal matters. Copies can be
procured at the office of the postmaster
stamp or registry division.

COUNCIL STILL ON TOE RACK
Democratic City 'Administration Be
fore the Grand Jury.
ELECTION DOES K0T STOP IiTdTTIBY
McGovern and the Rest Mast Tell All
Aboat Vaeatlast streets Contrary
to' the Charter Provi
sions. ',
Before election democrats said that the
county grand jury was trying to make
political capital by Ir.vestlgstlng the demo
cratic city administration and calling Coun
"llmm Thomas McGovern. chairman of the
committee on street improvements, on the
carpet. But election Is now past snd the
grand Jury Is still after the democratic
city officials.
Mayor Jim Dahlmara, President of the
Council L B. Johnson and Councilman
Thomas McGovern were all summoned be
fore that body Wednesday, together with
Councilman Zimman and Chief of Police
Donahue, to tell what they knew of the
management of city affairs. The nature
of the investigation which the grand Jury
Is conducting Is, of course, not divulged,
but It is stated by those who are in a
position to know thnt the action of Coun
cilman McGovern in pocketing the city
abstracter's report regarding city land un
lawfully occupied la one of the Items.
In accordancs with the charge to the
Jury by the Judge before it began Its sit-
ting. It will Investigate tho "red light"
district, and the mayor and chief of po
lice may have been summoned on that
score, though the mayor is also In on the
occupancy of city property by reason of
his approving the .council's action.
Magrney Known Aboat It.
Assistant County Attorney Mairnav. who
Is acting In an advisory capacity to the
grand Jury, Is conversant with the actions
of the democratic council in its violating
of the city charter by vacating streets, ny
reason or a civil suit he brought against It
last wlnte. This was when the council
usurped Its powers and vacated TWenty
fifth avenue between California and Burt
Streets on December 13, 1907. Attorney
Magney brought suit against the city and
the Creighton university authorities on be.
half of Louis Johnson, Peter Peterson and
G. B. Bonderson, who objected to the clos
ing of the street. The council made cer
tain concessions, however, and the case
was dismissed.
Councilman McGovern, who has held the
report of the city abstracter since May
12, last, refused to go before the grand
Jury on Monday of last week, when re
quested to do so by the foreman, because
he was not regularly subpoenaed. He has
now been subpoenaed and will have to tell
the grand Jury why action has not been
taken on the report. Large and small
tracts of land in various parts of the city
are occupied by public service corporations
and private individuals. Nominal rental
Is paid for the occupancy of a few pieces,
but the majority of them are occupied free.
HAYWOOD CASE NOT AN ISSUE
Famous Trial Had Nothing; to Do
with Election, Says Boise
Man.
"The famous Haywood trial had no In
fluence in this campaign in Idaho," de
clared Charles J. Perkins Of Boise, who is
at the Honshaw. "Governor Gooding was
not up for re-election and tha republican
nominee, John H. Brady, has been elected
by over 7,000, a telegram informs me. Mr.
Brady also says that Taft's majority in
the state is 19,000 and that a republican
congressman has been elected."
Mr. Perkins Is general manager of the
Twin Falls It ,'ion company and Is here
with a party colonists from western
Iowa, who will settle on lands his company
has made it possible to cultivate. He Is a
graduate of the University of Wisconsin
and was in college with Senator La Follette
and former Governor Heriod of South Da
kota. By a coincident another man bound for
Boise was at tli Henshaw. This was a
well known eastern lawyer, Peyton Gor
don, special assistant to the attorney gon
eral of the United Status. Mr. Gordon,
whose home Is In Washington, has been
retained to help In the prosecution of land
frauders In Idaho and other parts of 'the
west. He and S. R, Rush will conduct sev
eral cases for the government about to be
tried In the Idaho capital.
