Whether Stanley asked her again there and then to be his wito cannot be learned but ho did so very soon afterwards This is tlie tiLie story of the engagement which is still a subject of the greatest gossip No date is fixed for the wedding Just now Stanley is full of the idea of transporting negroes from the Southern States of America to Central Africa The precise sito lixod upon is tho Upper

would oulv ho done i loss whichwould have to be in somo wny Mr your company hid under the conditions of this bill Mr could not accept the rates Wo would ho doing business at a loss if we ac raios There is no business in tho Uimed Slates lisvt 1 know of that could stand such a reduction of rates Perhaps the most odious monoply in the country is the felphone IMr lire there other than the Western Union Mr Postal Telegraph Company is quite a largo concern They are pushing on to Orleans and to Texas Thoy will ho very soon They arc already at Charleston and Savannah andare at Minneapolis St Paul and Tliev will soon he at Denver and Omaha In addition to that hasa separate system which covers the Pacific Coast States pretty generally Mr that another company isnnother company hut it he IOIILTS to the same man ISlr do your rates compare with the ir rates Mr have agreed with us to main tain rates There is however nothing extraor dinary in that Tho railroads have to do that to keep from going into bankruptcy Kvery manu facturing com in tho country consults its competitors maintaining rates and upon them All the rolling mills have agreed to maintain mid so have the carpet and other manufacturers It is an absolute necessity to pievent destrucfion from wasteful competition Mr axe Mr a great many more com panies My friend Mr Painter has got a little telegraph lino np here in Pennsylvania There r an iiirtopondnnlcmnpimy up in the Adirondacks The great Northwestern of Canada runs over into the United States a considerable distance down to White Hall at the southern end of Luke Champlain and through that country The Can ada Pacific have got a lino from Montreal through New England right up in the maritime provinces nro Severn independent com imiiio out in the West and two or three down in tho South all local concerns hut together they eke out our opposition as wo go everywhere they connect with tho postal and help them out and they cover the whole country with a compe tition Mr Chandlers letter which I wish every mem ber of the committee would road for it is a very clear statement of tho case shows thai it costs his company an average of 26 cents a message to handle its business It costs us cents per message and we can handle tho business cheaper than any other com pan v can handle a small business because we handle n great deal more in the same office and a groal deal more with the same clerks There is a very important matter to my company which I have not taken up be foreand that is the criticism of the Western Union made by the Postmaster General in his annual report I am very anxious to ho henrd before the committee upon this very uniust and unfair The Postmaster General says that he discovered that the Govern ment was paying for services which were ren dered to the public and he would have the President of this country and Congress believe that they have been dreadfully imposed upon and that all his predecessors who were either stupid or connived at building up tho Western Union Telegraph Company whereas in ppint of fact I have exhibits here to show that at the old Gov ernment rate where the Government was charged for what was given to other people free that is the address and signature the gross tolls under that old rate were only about 50 per cent of the tolls to the public Tlisit all comes out in the we have brought against the Govern ment to test the question whether the fixing of rates below the cost of the service is not a con fiscation 01 the property without just com pensation We have made up an ac count for three months and the issue is substantially made up The rates to the pub lic on that account are just twice as much or about twice as much as the rates to the Govern ment for the last year and for the last six years and about four times as much rates fixed by the PostmasterGeneral on the 30th of October last for the present fiscal year which rate by the 500 per cent greater than that contained in his published order of June 30th the rate of one mill per word for all distances Mr bill o provides that the charges for all words in excess of the first twenty words shall be at the rate of 1 cent per word How does that compare with your rates Mr most short distances it is only 50pftf cent of our rate For long distances it is oulv onefifth or 20 per of ourrates As for instance our rate is usually 25 and 02 but for many short distances it is 25 and 01 For trans continental messages it is Jrtid 05 50 and 03 for additional words is our standard rate and 75 and 04 so that the rates ns provided in the bill arc 50 per percent and 20 per cent of our rates for additional words Mr have here sent to me a postal teieiaph scheme which states that the under H Hales Henry Wise Garrctt Walter H Smith Robert Andrews and Tames H Head by these presents and pursuant to and in conformity with he statute apply under the law of the State of Virginia for a charter Do you know anything about them Mr do not know much about them l know Mr Bates very well He was for a long time in the em ploy of my company and after wards in the Baltimore Ohio Company As far as I have been ibin to ascertain tho gentle men who are named ijr thbse articles of incor poration will never build a telegraph line with out help Who their backing is I do not know Mr thought possibly you might know these telegraph want to remind the chairman who is an old member of Congress and probably knows tho fact that this is substantially die same scheme that has been before Congress for twenty years and has been rejected by every Confess which it has come before It is the old Hibhard scheme The PostmasterGeneral now has discovered that he has not as much to start a felegjraph ino with sis lie at llrst thought he had that his clerks and employees would not have telegraph business that they not learn little tick quite so quickly sis he supposed they could that the room m the post offices was not expected it would be The

and operate Uieteio there is not a Government in Europe sra over established a telegraph in competition with Thero is not a Government in Europe that over established a telegraph without buying all the existing properties ai a fair price where weru any vo buy There is not a statesman in Europe that would not sneer at tho in1utico of the Government going into a noss a eommercia 1 business The Supremo court of the United States by Chief Justice aite has declared that the is commerce itself and that it boars tho same relation to it thut railroads do not carrying the property m fact but tin duplicate of it and that it is essentially an adjunct of it and yet the ment proposes to go into a commercial miMnos und give its patronage and its 10 a competing company of largely invested capital to protect which I insist under tho ad of INSO tho good faith of the Government is pledged More than fourflfths of tho telegraph properties have boon created since that act was passed There are a number of other things and somo most outrageous misrepresentations I want to correct J am very anxious to be hoard I will bo at Washington any dy tho committee will namo l have got tho record of

thousand dollars a vear for ton years and the Government to have tho free use of it for all business for which they wanted it It was at iho beginning of the war and for some years tho Government got full benotit and the full return for all the money they paid besides having the great benefit ot tele graph communication in advance of any railroad through a wild and open countrv whoro 1 did not suppose a lino could have boon mainlined Now those are tho simple facts Instead of being onough to build tho line it not ono quartor enough to maintain it This groat turn of all the holograph lines ownoil by thu Government at tin end of tho has boon rep resented to you to have boon done at a cost ol when in fact that was the whole cost of tho Government telegraph system from the beginning of the war to the end with Mb em plovoes at a salary Tho amount of tho linos built was pretty largo but many of them wore torn down the next day Thoy woro run up to a mileage und torn away when the army moved so that very little was left to turn over to iinvbody Tho Government appropriated and used our linos not tho Western Union s because the Western Union had not oven reached Isew York and did not
