for mo to add anything upon the nubject After standing for a year past in the midst of the controversy over postal telegraphy that for over forty years has roue on with sharper tone and widening range I am more than ever convinced of the wisdom and practicability of restor ing tho telegraph to the postal service and making it what it was originally in tended to a part of the postal system The People Hound to Hiivo It I say this after closely studying the arguments against the bill mado so vig by the great telegraph company vrhich Is now its only visible opponent I do nob believe it possible to argue this question down There Is a deep and far roachlng completion iimong the people that the telegraph service is by right fi part of the postnl service To curry the postal system from pony riders to tha stoge coach and on to railroad service and stop nil further progtess because 3000 owners of telegraph stock oppose is not In accord with the genius of oar people or the spirit of tho times And Opposors Bettor Come Down The will Of the people in this respect AS YOU TJKF TT1 f US Itself unmistakeably be llXrsHj 11 I lore congress in public speech and state ment during tho last twenty years Re ilstanco to the groat popular demand may not be tho wisest thing nor is i t fair to count those who nrgo tho adoption in some form or other of tha postal telegraph as hostile to

cheap use of one of the most powerful agencies of modern com merce and civilization Made a ManofWar of Her A demand WHS made on the captain of the steamer for the delivery of the refu gee to the party of the opposite faction lliis action became known to the captain of a British manofwar then in port To protect the refugee and prevent an in dignity to his flag the captain went at once on board the merchant steamer and hoisted a manofwar pennant thus as he said turning the steamer into a manof war for the time being He accomplished his object and reported his action to his government The result

the AJlowii to Leave cfur Salesroom Material The Men Who Object AS to the constitutionality of postal telegraphy the postmaster general says ns been argued by learned lawyers for n score of years that a government tel sgraph is unconstitutional The motives pf these gentlemen have been one of two m all cases They have been the paid at torneys of those corporations whose ipeclal interests have demanded that Inair monopolies should in no way be In terfered with They have known their business and have done it well The other opponents were those who imained Kbat the constitution would be exposed to averjr sort of outrage if they were to fall lick for a day The courts of highest ap peal hare settled this question Congress lettltd It in advance of judicial action by making the United States the owner the postoflice department the man ager of the lint line of wire constructed tor commsrcial and public uses Proposed Limited Scheme What hail be said then of the limited postal telpgwph plan which I have been ipmewhnt criticised for bringing forward is no doubt that it is constitutional The constitution permits the Keneral gov srnment to transmit intelligence for the people The postofflce department has bcon doing this with the money and the Improvements at its disposal for 100 years It is preposterous to argtie that the tele graph oughtnot to be utilized for the Oheaper

that the conclu lion that tho limited postal telegraph plnn IB constitutional cannot be resisted some MmigH 1lllt lt Is I desire in conclusion to explain as po litely as may be one or two things that are not understood I have challenged the most rigid scrutiny of the limited postal telegraph bill I ft3k to have printed all of the printed criticisms of it which have come to my notice as au ar KUtnent in its favor The limited postal legraph bill is not n proposition to take iioney from the treasury or to employ additional civil servants it is not a prop psition to put any power whatever in the hands of the government which is not at present greater and moredangcrous where it is Tho Institute of Arehltects WASHINGTON CITY Oct annua convention of the American Institute o Architects will

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
