TAFT NOT FOR POSTAL WIRES
(Continued from First Page.)
ttio posts! commission the following
"Such an Increase will not. In the opin
ion of the commission, bring distress
upon the publishers of newspapers and
peiiodlrels. or seriously Interfere with the
dissemination of useful news or Informa
tion. A reasonable Urn should be al
lowed after the rat I fixed, before It
Is put Into effect. While ths new rats
wilt be very fsr from compensating the
government for the carriage and hand
ling of second class matter, It will to
som extent relieve the existing burden
and result In a more equltabls adjust
ment of ratee."
That newspapers snd msraslnes have
been potent agencies for ths dissemination
of public Intelligence and consequently
have borne a worthy part in ths develop
ment of th country. Mr. Tsft says, all
Periodical Are rretltale.
"But." he adds, "It Is likewise true
that the original purpose of congress In
providing for them a aubventlon by way
of nominal postal charges In considera
tion of their value as mediums of public
Information ought not to prevent an In
crease, becaus they are now not only
edurstlonsl but highly profitable. T.iere
is no wsrrant for th great disparity be
tween existing postage rates on periodi
cals and ths cost of service th govern
ment performs for them. Ths aggregate
postal revenue for th fiscal year 111
were l3J7,t7,KB.0t, derived mainly from
th postage collected en the four class
of mall matter. It la carefully estimated
by the Postofflre department that the
revenue derived from mall matter of the
first class hi approximately ons and one-
half times th east ef handling and car-
nags: that th returns from third and
fourth class matter are slightly in exceea
of their cost of handling and carriage;
and that while second class matter em
braces ever S4 per cent ef th entire
weight of all th mall carried, It, never
theless, yields little more U.an I per cent
of the postal revenues."
The postal commission on second class
matter was appointed by President Tsft
following ths controversy caused by ths
postmaster general's original recommend
stlons for the Increase In rates. Ths
matter was taken up by magssln pub
lishers before committee of eongree
snd a shsrp Issue wss raised as to ths
correctness of the Postofflcs department's
figures. Congress finally passed a joint
resolution authorising ths sppotnunent of
th commission, which was mad up of
Juatlce Charlea at Hughe of th supreme
court. President A. lAwrsace Lowell of
Harvard university and Harry A.
Wheeler, president of the Chicago Asso
ciation of Commerce.
Hlaher state J eel I (lea.
"The findings of the commission." says
the president, "confirm tbs view that ths
cost of handling and transporting second
class mall matter Is greatly In excess of
th postags paid, and that an Increase
In th rat Is not only justified by the
facts, but Is desirable.
"Th postal service Is now. for ths
first time In years, operated upon a self
sustaining basis, snd In my judgment
thla Is a wlte policy; but It should, not
be carried oat at th experts of Certain
classes of mall matter that pay revenue
largely In excess of their cost. It Is
not just that som classes of mall should
be exorbitantly taxed t meet th de
ficiency caused by other classes, th
revenues from which Is much below their
coat cf hsntltng and carriage. Where
such Inequalities exist they should be
removed as nearly as practicable.
"Th Propose! Increase of t cent a
psund In ths aooond class pastas rates.
I believe te be the most reasonable and
It sufficient time Is sllowed before ths
chsnga goes Into effect It should work
little serious injury to the business of
tb period tcel publishers, while equalis
ing at least In a measure, the burdens
of postal taxation."
Another suggestion of ths commission,
which wss given ths president's ap
proval, would abolish ths "cent-a-eopy
lies, when mailed at a city letter car-
rato" for newspapers other then week-
rter office for local delivery.
