ArmstrongIndianaJefferson Clarion congressional situation at present appears to be largely centered on the uncertainty of J N Langhani the present incumbent to seek a third term or to restrain his political ambi tion for two years and run for judge in Indiana county at that time Ac cording to reports Mr Langham finds it extremely difficult to decide which is the wisest move for him to make and his decision it seems will have an im portant bearing on the congressional fight If he concludes to run for re as some of his neighbors are Committee Will Recommend Prison Labor and Syste matic Appropriations FISHER ONE OF THEM The legislative committee of the State Grange tonight adopted a reso lution calling for a committee to in quire into the expenditures of the de partments of the state government and to ask about the publication of reports especially of the auditor gen eral and department of internal affairs which it is charged have been delayed A resolution was also adopt ed demanding that the highway de partment publish a report showing overhead charges in detail and a state ment of the cost of construction and t vwow WJ UUtl trying to persuade him to do it is not maintenance of roads per mile but that attacks will be centered on his candidacy as the representative of the PenroseSmoot Special Privi lege element of the Republican party and an effort made to combine the in dependent forces behind one man run ning on a broad Progressive platform But should Mr Langham conclude to forsake Washington and seek the Indiana judgeship it will leave the congressional field open and a num ber of candidates are expected to par ticipate in the primaries In any event the scene of the real battle will be in the Jefferson and Indiana side of the district

Packages from ana Will Be Materially Lowered NO LOSS TO THE U S t n On and after February first small packages can be sent between Indiana and Pittsburgh and intermediate points at a lower rate than at while substantial reductions are to be obtained on long distance hauls such as those to New York Philadelphia Chicago Kansas City and other west ern cities as well as to southern points Heretofore a fivepound shipment to Pittsburgh cost 35 cents under the new rate it will be 22 cents and for 35 cents the old rate a 37pound package can be dispatched A ship ment of 50 pounds to Pittsburgh forv merly cost 60 cents the new price is 40 cents A 100pound shipment to Pittsburgh formerly cost 75 cents now it will be carried for 60 cents These amounts will be practically the IJfl same for the Adams and American Express companies here The long distance hauls is where the advantage is gained the reduction in charges being marked A shipment of meat to a point in Florida that for merly cost in the neighborhood of will after February 1 be dis patched at a little over Corres pondingly low rates can be obtained after the first of this next month Chicago Kansas City New York Philadelphia etc Another feature of the new rulings which go into effect February 1 is that the express companies guarantee absolutely safe delivery of packages intrusted to their care and if lost the sum equivalent to the packages will be refunded The country has been laid out in blocks by the express companies somewhat after the plan of the Parcel Post system and the same rate fixedli for every point located within the same The Adams and Amer ican block station in Indiana is 946 and it is understood that the limit eastward and westward of the Adams block will be Altoona and Pitts burgh respectively As the

the figures are not it the easiest task V 8 Vr Vj 1 JA The new rates that will be put into s effect by the express companies Feb 1 will still be in excess of existing parcel post rates so far as the two zones are concerned The terrf tory of these zones includes a radius of 150 miles and in it is J practically twothirds of the post business of the country For the heavier packages sent territory at a greater distance 150 miles the express rates will be lower For distances of 50 miles Qrv F less which would be in the first parcel postdates will be almost per cent lower A 20pound package can be taken for the purpose of illustration because packages of this weight may be to all parts of the country by parcel post Such a package may be sent1 all points within the first and second zones for 24 cents This would in all the territory as far east as caster and as far west as as far north as Buffalo and as south as Baltimore The express to these points will be 84 cents foj 1 20pound package or
