lliuilget WASHINGTON CITY Jan ieneral Wanamaker yesterday gave louse postoffice committee his views on the ubjoct of postal telegraph at great length He said he had prepared a bill based on the our bills which had bean introduced in the louso this sjssion on the same subject and believed that it would b3 satisfactory 3e proposed to begin tho experiment by es tabliug postal telegraph communication be tween the 100 froa delivery offices in the country and to gradually extend iki service to smaller offices A unifovni rate on messages could not be established Mr Wanamaker believed that tha scheme should bo tried for ton years on leased wires lu unswer to Chairman Bingham Sfr Wanamaker said he did not think the service could be established on the basis of tho mail iwrvice but it could be worked toward such a point He had no doubt that he service by itself would bo selfsustaining Tbe postolHce department would tave the additional delivery business receiving 2 cents clear on each letter The scheme was not exactly in opposition to nny telegraph company bccauso tho delivery would be slower than that messages transmitted by the telegraph companies direct Practical Workingof tho Scliomo Tho postmaster general was of opinion that hiii proposition to use postal employes as operators for tho proposed service would bs successful In a great many instances em ployes assigned to this work would bo green but ho thought he could find a number of clerks now in tho service who understood how to work telegraph instruments knowledge of telegraphy he said is more general than it is supposed to be In the matter of salary he thought that the oper ator would not ba worth more than the or dinary clerk In regard to his proposi tion to limit the scheme to 400 ornces Mr Wanamnker was pressed by sev eral members of the committee to tell his reasons for this contracted beginning He replied that his theory wns that everything should have a beginning The 400 offices would bo enough to begin with and the serv ice could be increased in the discretion of government He believed that the result of the operation of tho scheme would bo a groat increase iu tho number of messages of a social character Existing Bights Not Interfered With Mr Wanamaker said that ho proposod a union of postal and telegraph business on a basis that will not interfere to nny apprscia ble extent with any existing rights but that will afford incalculable servico to classes not now enjoying tho use of the telegraph to any large degree He suggested to tha commit tee thnt authority bo given him to lease in the different cities telegraph wires such as the great newspapers great corporations brokers and others have from city to city in order that the common peopla may com municate through their business offices the postoffices from city tocity or by dropped messages in their mail boxes The business said tho people already enjoy A MoneyIVIulijDg Enterprise Referring to the argument that only about 5 per cent of tho telegrams sent were fam ily and social and tho rost commercial and speculative and that as not more than U per cent of tha paopl3 use tho telegraph the rest should not ba taxed to pay tho deficit sure to be caused by cheap telegraph rates Mr Wanamaker argued that if the postmas ter general was authorized to contract with a telegraph company npw organized orto be formed for this purpose the postoffico will largely increase its business and that there will be no deficit Cause of Iostnl Deficits Tho postofflca department Mr Wana maker maintained is not selfsustaining because it is charged with carrying free the Vast volume of mail matter of the various executive departments of government handles the newspapers of the country for practically nothing and allows the oppor tunity to pass by to trasmit cheap tele graphic messages because thero are incor porated companies who dispute tha ground The Prices Proposed Under the proposed bill the telegraph tolls ia any one state shall not exceed 10 cents lor twenty words or loss counting address and signature nor over 25 cents for any dis tance under 1500 miles nor over 50 cents for any greater distance said rates
