any recommendations to the president for

It had been generally . assumed that be

taken now. Whether or notthe president
will take this action to -mean -that , be

friends of the present incumbents rejoice
uroatly over the action taken and regard
It ns certain to mean that they will re

cially In the southern district the matter
Is a surprise, for It was understood that

at the expiration of their commissions.

Postal Pavings System.
An Important event of the yesr was
the successful organization of the postal
savings system. On January 3, 1911, de
positories wre opened experimentally at
a single postoffice In each one of the
forty-eight states and territories. After
a careful test for four months at these
offices the system was rapidly extended
and now comprises practically all of the
7.5O0 presidential postofflces. Prepara
tions are being made to establish the
system also In about 40,000 fourth-class
offices that do a money order business.
Postal savings deposits have kept pace
with the extension of the system.
Amounting st the end of the first month
to only p,Z2 In the forty-eight experi
mental offices, they Increased In a half
year to $679,310, and now, after eleven
months rf operation, have reached a total
of 11,OO,O(0. This sum has been dis
tributed among 2,710 national and state
banks, where it Is protected by bonds
deposited with the treasurer of the
Now that the successful operation of
tho postal savings system Is assured, It
Is hoped that congress will promptly
authorize tho establishment of a parcel
post. The benefits of this service are
widely enjoyed by the people of foreign
countries and should be provided In tho
United Hates. The department not only
renews Its recommendation of last year
for legislative authority to start a par
cel post on rural routes, but sks s
similar authorisation for the introduction
of such a service in cities and towns hav
ing delivery by carrier. After the or
ganisation of a parcel poet on rural
routes and In the city delivery service
is completed, its extension to Include rail
way and other transportation lines can
be more rapidly accomplished without
Impeding the handling of the ordinary
If congress will grant without delay
the desired authority and provide the
necessary appropriations it is believed
that before t'-.s end of another year a
sntlsfactory parcel post can' be organ
ized on rural router and in cities with
a carrier service, thus paving the way for
the final step in the organization of a
general parcel post.
The Pranking; Privilege.
In the last annual report It was recom
mended that the franking privllffee be
discontinued and that legislative author
ity be granted for the use ot special en
velopes and stamps in the free transmis
sion of official mall, such envelopes and
stamps to be furnished on requisition
through the agency ot the Postoffice de
partment. It Is to be hoped that favor
able action on this recommendation will
be taken at the coming session. The Im
portance of such a reform is apparent
when it is understood that the annual
cost ot carrying franked mall reaches
into the millions. v
Reorganisation of Railway Service.
Following the Inquiry into the coet of
transporting mall on the railroads the
department started a thorough investi
gation ot the railway mall service. In
certain branches of that service most
unsatisfactory condition were disclosed
as the reso.lt of Inefficient management
It ' was found that In soma divisions ' the
chief clerks had nor inspected their lines
for several years. Employes en certain
lines were compelled to work exceptlon-
Uy long hours, while In other parts ot
the service a sufficient period of train
duty was not required. '
This reorganisation, although not com
pleted, has gone far enough to bring
about a decided Improvement over the
unsatisfactory conditions reported. Un
questionably, the final result will mean a
tremendous caving to the government ac
companied by Important benefits to the
employe of the service.
In place ot the present method of
compensating railway mall clerks, which
Is far from satisfactory, the department
will recommend to congress a new system
of salaries that will insure regular pro
motions and a higher maximum com
pensation for those who render efficient
The plan of assigning to the railway
mall car new appointee without pre
vious experience In the postal service
I to be abandoned, and hereafter the
additional clerks required on the car
will be recruited from the trained em
ploye of the postofflces.
Almost without exception, foreign na
tion provide for the pensioning ot civil
service employes when they become
superannuated. Lrga corporation in
this country are rapidly adopting the
same principle In the retirement of their
aged employes. On business grounds. If
for no other reason, the government
should do likewise.
While the compensation of postal em
ployes has been considerably increased
during the last few yeara It is hardly
more than sufficient to meet necessary
llvJng expenses and consequently does
not permit the putting aside of any con
siderable savings against old age. It la be.
Ileved that a civil pension based on length
ot employment should be granted by the
government. Benefits to the service far
outweighing the expense of such pension
would undoubtedly result.
