Tho report Is mudo upon the request of

an estimate of how tho system Is work

Parcels which were mailed In Omaha
and delivered locally or to addresses in
Omaha amounted to 1,3,2 pieces. Tlio
amount of postago used for theso pieces
was S6S.ZP. The average weight for these
1,37a pieces was twelvo ounces. There

This enormous amount ot business ban-

I I hunts of this city have discarded the
express companies to a largo extent for
the government service. Of the first fif
teen days thero were two Sundays and
one holldiry. which rightfully shows that
this amount of business was handled In
twelve working days.
Although the business has been rushing,
the railway mail clerks, according to As
sistant Superintendent Johnston, havo not
found the task burdensome. Mr. Johnston
Fays he hns received but twelve com
plaints during the first fifteen duys,
which he considers wonderful, when the
parcels post was something practically
unknown to the mall clerks, and no sys
tem had been arranged for tho handling
of the parcels by tho clerks. Tic said bis
