for us to have a fall .trip, but we could not

; Unions differ as to the legality of elect-
state railway commissioner to sue
W. II. Cow gill, deceased. Some at
x hold that It Is the duty or the
to appoint, the appointment to
uruil the flection, a year from this
dne. Others contend that the appointment
could only run until the first of January
and the vacancy be filled by election.
One section of the law provides that the
vacancy must be filled by election where
It occurs within thirty days of the election.
If the vacancy occurs In less than thirty
days before election, some contend It
muft he filled by appointment.
The Mortensen petition was circulated by1
the. republican state committee. No petl
tlon has lieen filed for a democrat.
It is expected that Governor Shullen

WASHINGTON, wt. 21. -Figures. the
compilation of which as completed at the i
Postofflcn depai intent today, show that the
exact reduction of the postal deficit during
the fiscal ear ending June 30 last was
$U,Mi0.0(. The deficit of the previous fiscal
year was SlT.BnO.OW, so that in one year the
deficit was brought down to $.100.0HO.
In commenting tonlghl on the saving of
Sll.&OO.OUU last year. Postmaster General
Hitchcock said:
"This tremendous saving was made with
out the curtailment of the postal facilities
In any direction. On the contrary, during
the year there were many Important ex
tensions of such facilities. The. department's
policy is to extend the service as .rapidly
as Is warranted by Inrrciudng population
and to accomplish Its savings, not by Ihe
curtailment of postal facilities, but by
handling in a more systematic and busl:
ness-llke manner the constantly expanding
volume of the malls."
New Postorru-e Katabliahed.
The tables Indicate that In the further
ance of tills policy more than 1.500 new post
offices, with the necemsary officers, employee-
and equipment, were established
during the last fiscal year. Great exten
sions were made In the rural delivery sys
tem, 613 new routes, with a total mileage of
ll,2So miles, being put into operation. There
were appointed from the eligible list of tha
Cicll Service commission over 1.S00 postal
clerks to enlarge the working forces of city
postofflces and more than 1,000 additional
letter carriers. The railway mall service
was strengthened by the appointment of
about 750 new employes, all of whom were
taken from the civil service eligible list.
The aggregate salaries of the new employe
appointed during the yem from" the civil
