the fulfillment of every promise and a

NEW YORK, July 1-An Important part
of the postal system of this country Is the
transportation of mall In and around Man
hattan Island. This part of the city Is one
of the most congested In the world. Traffic
problems have become Infinitely more dif
ficult but Uncle Sam has kept ahead of the
procession. Everything else may be hin
dered, but there la no delay moving mail.
The receipts of the New York poetoffice
today equal those Of the entire country
thirty years ago. Twenty million dollars
worth of buslnexs was handled by Post
master Morgan last year without a hitch
Already there Is a pneumatic tube service
connecting various branch postofflces In
this town, and If Harlemltes were letters,
they would get home wlthoui a stop.
With the enormous Increase of mall mat
ter, has come the problem of getting It
through the crowded city. This must be
done on time, for the express trains and
ocean liners wait for no man.
An automobile service, Junt Installed, Is
a success. And here might be explained

Most of the pouches are taken by wagon
direct to the general postoffice and tne new
auxiliary station In the Hudson Terminal
buildings. Remaining pouches are carried
by the vehicles direct to the Jersey rail
road terminals and ta the Grand Central
station. Before the liner which has brought
the mall to port has docked, the pouches
are aboard the railroad postofflces and
New York business men have the foreign
mall before them. The ocean man is al
ways heavy, and the quantity constantly
increasing. Christmas time brings the max
A record is when the Teu

morning and by U o'clock the pouches were
not only landed nl New York, but distri
buted. Onoe the pouches are at the general post
orflce the letters are distributed through
the tubes. But for other classes of mall
the wagon service again comes into play.
Some 6f the big hauls are from the poet
office downtown to tha Grand Central, the
Lackawanna, Central Railroad of New
Jersey, Weehawken and Long Island City
stations, and to the Staten Island ferries
for Richmond Borough. Then there are
the wagon transfers from the stations
mentioned above to each other and in
turn baok to the postoffice. The mileage
mounts up when it is remembered that a
haul such as that from Grand Central to
Jersey amounts to six miles.
Up to this month the work has not been
done on a mileage basis. From now on
the distance will be considered, and when
the territory Increases there will be more
money In It for the carriers.
Wagons Get Hard TTaag.
The wear and tear on these mall wagons
Is enormous. In the transportation com
pany stables, a five-story structure in
East Fifteenth street which shelters nearly
that many hundred horses, Is a good stxed
wagon building department and a large
force work day and night rebuilding those
wagons. Trolley oar motormen have little
respect for the mall wagons and car col
lisions are most common. Three wagons
have been smashed In a day.
Drivers suffer, too. Many have been
killed or died as the result of Injuries.

Ones a railroad train swept a wagon from

him, but at 7 he drives better than the
youngsters and has yet to get a written
oompiaint filed against him. Bennett puts
on the speed when he has to. Rather than
urge his horses along unnecessarily he has
made it a practice to turn up at the barns
half an hour earlier that he may walk his
horses on the long trip to the general post
office. Horses are maimed and crippled and a
special hospital service Is maintained at
the stables for injured animals. A veterin
ary surgeon is always on duty and he
seldom is without patients.
Francis R. Roome, superintendent ef
mails in the New York postoffice, has had
much to do with the tube ' system. The
present expenditure for the entire tube
system In the United States is about 1724,000
each year, but it is pointed out that there
have resulted economies by a discontinu
ance or reduction ot other transportation
services to an amount estimated at about
97,000. The closest Interval between the
tube carriers Is thirteen to fifteen seconds,
and the total number of letters despatched
one way an hour Is rated at 108,000. The

are distributed, formerly a duty of the gen

MINISTRY LACKS RECRUITS
Sinker of Graduates front Theologi
cal Seminaries Insufficient
There is a most alarming lack of candi
dates for tha ministry of Protestant
churches. This lack is giving Christian
leaders of America grave concern. Within
the last few weeks, or since the theological
seminaries held their closing exercises,
frequent conferences have been held and
formal appeals have been made to minis
ters to stir up publio opinion In thotr oom-
munlovs. These appeals point out that
money la going to missions in foreign lands
in fairly liberal sums, and that even the
dearth of men for these foreign fields is
not as great as formerly. But the Protes
tant churches at home are suffering in
number and in character for lack of men
to serve them.
The principal Protestant bodies In the
United States require about 1, 600 new min
isters a year. These are needed to fill ex
tensions, to take the places of those who
die or resign. Changes from ons body to
another arw frequent but they do not in
crease the total. This commencement sea
son of the seminaries has seen graduate
about 1.000 men. This counts practically
everything. When to the 600 short this
year are added the shortages of the last
six or sight years. It will be seen how
desperate the situation is. In hardly any
of the seminaries is there any Improve
ment in numbers to be graduated next
year. In moat of them there is a falling
off. The only exception is one undenomi
national seminary, and that Is challenegd
In its orthodoxy In some quarters.
Reaearches have also Just been com
pleted in the colleges, finding out how
many men in them Intend to enter the
theological Seminaries. In this quarter

A very large majority of the decisions to
study for holy orders are made by men lu
their college senior years, so that it is
useless to go beyond them. In those senior
classes there is no ground for encourage

here. On the continent men Just from
there report a ray of Improvement This
ray oomes, it is said, in part from young
men who had thought of studying for or
ders in the Roman Catholic church, but
aro changing because communities are
changing. These cases are not numerous
as compared with the whole, so that? no
where in the Protestant world does there
seem to ba any but the same lack of re
cruits. Some leaders seen within the last
few days point to the faot that even West
Point is also short of Its quoto, in spite of
all it offers.
What the trouble is with the Protestant
ministerial outlook it Is impossible to
ascertain. Within the last week a dozen
of the foremost Christian leaders in all
the world have been interviewed, and al
most a dosen different solutions have been
offered. If there is any shortage in the
number it Is because of a reason, some
said frankly, they do not know. There
are more men than formerly in the Bible
classes of the colleges, even In those of
the academies at West Point and An
napolis, but the laymen seem to have the
call. That is, the notion prevails that
there Is a demand for active Christian lay
men, who work during their spare time
from business or a profession. Religious
bodies that have least depression are the
Lutheran, especially the German bodies,
the Disciples of Christ and the Methodist
Episcopal. In bodies that have high and
low parties there is little difference be
tween them. The high suffers quite as
much as the low. It does not appear to
be a matter of theology or of dogma or of
system or of location. Leaders in prac
tically all bodies are taking up tha ques
tion, regarding it as of very grave serious
ness. Boston Transcript
