A PERISHED FLAMES. President Harrison's Visit to the Western States. He Leave Washington To-day and be Absent Eight Days. general Wanamaker last night made public a letter recently addressed to Binghara. chairman of >jhfs House Committee on Postoffices, embodyinz an elaborate argument in favor of bis p'.an of postal telegraphy. Aopended to the letter, which has been at tbe Government Printing O'lice, is a mass of matter, including opinions of the press for and against uos'.a1- t'-iegrapliy; opinions of protnl- aent public men on the constitution- of postal tclojrraphy; explanations of "various automntic and multiplex i telcirra-ih resolutions of or- canizod bodies of labor and capital in i behalf of postal telegfiphv, and a copy of tho final draft oi the postal telegraph bill submitted by the Postmaster Gen- eral to tho House Committee on Fost- at the last session of Congress. Utozether tho document embraces 223 pasos ef closely printed literature bear- ing on this subject. The Postmaster General in his letter savs in part: ''Your sub-committee on postal telegraph informs me that all the parties that have signified a desire to be hoard on tho postal telegraph bills have submitted their testimony and tbat it is in order for me to add any thin? upon the sublect. After standing (or a year past in tho midst of the con- troversy over postal telegraphy that for over forty years has gone on with sharper and widening range, I am more than ever convinced of the wis- dom practicability of restoring the telegraph to the postal service and make it what it was originally intended to be, a part of tbe postal system. T say this after closely studying the argu- ments against tho bill made so vigor- ously by the great telegraph company is now its only visible opponent. I do not believe it possible to argue this question down. There is a deep and far-reachintr conviction among the peo- ple that the telegraph service is by right a part of the postal service. To carry tbe postal system from pony "riders" to stage coach and on the rail- road service and stop all further prog- ress because owners of telegraph stock oppose, is not in accord with the sronius of our people or the spirit of the times. "Tho will of the people in this respect has manifested itself unmistakably be- fore Congress during the last twenty years. Resistance to that popular demand may not be the wisest thing, nor is it fair to count those who urge the adop- tion in some form or other of the postal telegraph as hostile to existing corpora- tions. We stand confronting a public measure of no mean importance or mag- nitude. It is to give the country a vast enlargement of its postal system and to Iring hoioe to the people the cheap use icf one of tbe most powerful agencies of modern commerce and civilization." As to the constitutionality of postal telegraph, the Postmaster General says: "It has been argued by learned lawyers for a score of years that a Gov- ernment tolugraph is unconstitutional. The moth es of those gentlemen have been ono of two in all cases. They have been the paid attorneys of thoso Cofpo- rai'.ons whoso special interests have de- manded that their monopolies should in no way bo interfered with. They have their business and done it well. other opponents were those who im- agined that tho Constitution would be exposed to every sort of outrage if they lav-re to fall sick for a day. The courts of highest appeal have settled this ques- tion. Congress settled it in advance of jodicial action, by making tho United States the owner and the Post- office Department the manager the first line of wire con- structed for commercial public -sos. The old Government, tsloffraph schemes were constitutional. What sia'.I be said then of the limited postal telegraph plan, which Ihave been criti- cized for bringing forward? There is no Soubt that it is constitutional. The Constitution permits tho General Gov- ernment to transmit intelligence for tbe people. The Postofflce Department kas been doing this, with tho money and tbe improvements at its disposal, for one hundred years. It is preposter- ous to argue that tho telegraph ought sot to be utilized for tbe cheaper, speedier and more accurate transmission messages. 1 have had prepared and S-oir.it 'or your reference an appendix touches upon this consideration. A-e Attorney General for the dopart- fceat assures ine tbat the conclusion tisa: the limited postal telegraph plan constitutional can not be resisted." The Postmaster General then follows an elaborate explanation of tbe plan and of its operation: aryn- te? -hat it iconld pay tbe telegraph and be more efficient as well priced. In concinding he says: desire in conclusion to expiaio. as ?o- A Woman and Two Children Koastod to Death In Their Hoouc. DUBCQUE, la..

This could not be done as tho men had not. been signed, owing to the premature explosion of the proposed deal in the newspapers. The Brotherhood, however, said they did not care for any players except Mul- lane, HcPhce and Roilly, and the whole doal was delayed in trying to got these men to contracts, they asking enormous salaries and big bonuses out of tho purchase money.
