URGES COMPENSATION FOR

WASHINGTON. . Jan. J.-The ensct

general, submitted to Postmaster General
There were in operation June 30 laat
(n,:37 poetofflces of all classes in the
United States. The postal city delivery
service is now In operation In 1.M1 cities,
serving more than 44.U00.000 people, and
on the 42.010 rural routes 30.000,000 people
receive mall. This leaves a considerable
portlna of the American people, most of
whom reside In towns and villages, the
report declares, "without any form of
free delivery service, and under the pres
ent laws there Is no way by which the
de,attment can relieve this Inequality."
The cost of free delivery in cities, in
rliiilr.g collection expenses, was nearly
I 3.U .(;?, or more than It per cent of the
gr.w revenue of the city delivery offices.
Mr. Grand 0c Id calla special attention
tv the fact that during the last fiscal
year, "the triaj revenue of the depart

and the postal service Is now self-sustaining

Pardon Refused to
Charles W. Morse
WASHINGON. Jan. l.-It was an
nounced at the White House tonight that
the report of the army medical officers
who have examined Charles W. Morse,
convicted New York banker, serving a
sentence In the Atlanta, Ga., federal peni
tentiary, does not warrant immediate
interference by the president and the
pardon will not be granted at thin time.
The physicians made a physical ex
amination of Morse in the military hos
pital at Fort McPhernon, where the
banker Is being treated under guard. They
also atudliid his mxntal condition and
transmitted their findings to "president
Taft through Surgeon General Torncy
The physicians find that Morse Is suf
fering from artnrlo sclerosis, valvular
trouble of the heart. Rrlght's disease and
has but recently suffered from an acute
attack of congestion of the kidneys. They
found no paralysis.
The doctors pronounce Morse's condi
tion necessarily Incurable, but do not ex
pect Immediate death. Their recommend
ations are such that President Taft found
no reason to depart from tho attitude
he hus assumed In the Morse case. It
Is genrvolly understood President Taft Is
unwilling that Morse die a prisoner, but
he does not Intend to grant the pardon
until he Is convinced the prisoner Is in a
THAWING FROZEN WATER PIPE
Elertrleltr Pat on the Job and
tlnlcklr Deliver the
The great winter problem for those of
us who .live In the northland la the
thawing out of froien water pipes. Try
as we will every now and then Jack
Frost will steal a march on us and when
we wake up In the morning the water
pipes will be frosen tight.
Applications of hot water many remove
the ice In the pipes if It happens where
the water can be applied without re
moving the piaster and spoiling the wood
work. Once In a while a hot flatlron will
do the trick but, often enough, the frost
will have a grip on the pipe in a place
where flatlrona cannot be applied. Hold
ing a lighted lamp under the frosen part
has been known to work but it la Just as
apt to set the house on fire.
It remained for an electrical genius
to rig up a small portable transformer
for thawing frosen water pipes. This
little device is connected to tha afflicted
pipe and the current turned on. . In a
few minutes the pipe begins to get ex
ceedingly warm and tha loe melts away.
The devloe wilt work no matter where
the pipes are frosen even If the trouble
Is located far under the ground. Many
central atatlons for the sale and distri
bution of electricity now have one or
more of the pipe tbawera on hand and
they will apply tho electrical remedy to
any froien pipe for a nominal sum.

MILLIONS IN ASTOR ESTATE
Enormous Value of the Family

property on Manhattan Island owned by
Colonel John Jacob Astor, his cousin,
William Waldorf Astor of England, and
the estate of William Astor, the father
of the present John Jacob, in which va

therefore. Is New York's largest tax
payer by a wide margin. Of thai enor
mous amount v of . realty scattered all
over the city, William Waldorf Astor
Is tha greatest holder, his possessions
being assessed at $60,290,000. John Jacob
Astor pays taxes, according to the pres
ent tax records, on $41,202,800, while the
holdings of the William Astor estate are
assessed -at $16,406,600. Despite the in
creased assessments In recent years, it
Is safe to say that the entire Astor hold

60 per cent of what the holdings would

The Waldorf-Astoria hotel stands out
as the most valuable single piece of prop
erty held by the Astors on the tax bookk.
The Thirty-fourth street half, owned by
John Jacob Astor,' is assessed at 98.$60,
000, while the Thirty-third street half,
owned by William Waldorf, and which
has Just been transferred In trust for his
son, Waldorf, is valued at $6,150,000, or a
total of more than $11,000,0(0. The Hotel
