In transmitting to congress tbe re
port of the postmaster general. Pres

tuted for private enterprise here if
the service may be rendered by
francblsed corporations under public
control In a manner equally cheap
and efficient This is the real point
ot debate, the postal telegraph hav
ing been eetabliahed abroad, and
being now urged for this country by
Postmaster General Hitchcock as a
proper function for the PostofBce de
partment by which telegraph mes
sages, tbe same aa letters, could be
transmitted and delivered better, if
not cheaper. . "
The proposal of the postal tele
graph is by no means new with us,
nor even new with our postal author-
ties, as it baa been included in tbe
program of various successive post-
masters general for forty years. It
must be admitted that very recent
developments, J lining tbe telegraph
xnd the telepl one for operating pur
poses, hss made It a more compli
cated problem, and has unquestion
ably deterred tbe advent ot the pos
tal telegraph, which had previously
appeared to be fast approaching.
without resistance on tbepart of the
telegraph companies. The attitude
of President Taft takes the postal
telegraph oS of the legislative slate
for the present, but It will make a
reappearance at some not distant day.

Before Mr. Schwab throws up the
sponge be might recall a statement
he made in the fall of 109. which
went far from indicating that tbe
steel business was altogether unprof
itable. He aaid tbat the capital
stock ot tbe Bethlehem Steel company
hia corporation amounted to
$15,000,000, all of which the Bethle

800.000 abarea at J 50 par; tbat
while nominally only ft a share had
been paid In, the surplus of the com

pay the stock Is full and that the
company Intended to, issue stock to
represent the surplus. Those were
Mr. Schwab'a own words. Presumably
the company has since carried out its
intention and issued this stock to
represent the surplus.
In 1910 tbe Bethlehem company
paid a dividend of 10 per cent,
amounting to $1,500,000, on Its cap
ital stock. Surely any industry that
can earn dividends of $1,500,1100 on
