C. P. Harley. The department cannot secure from Congress for towns the size of Defiance an act to provide a Public building to be built and owned outright by the United states. For that reason the Post office authorities at Washington have adopted a policy of receiving propositions from local capitalists to erect buildings something after the style of a Post office building such As Congress usually builds itself. The striking features of these sort of buildings Are that they Are not necessarily Over Questore High Are entirely separate am apart from other build burs Bay to have a frontage of not less than 30 feet and to be at least of feet Long. The lot being forty four feet front will give space All around the building As desired.

When such buildings Are erected and the wishes of the department complied with in their erection and furnishings then the department sends on its special agent to approve the work when Complete and after such approval a lease for ten years is usually entered into. If the building and furnishings Are found to be in Good shape for a modern Post office such lease usually Means Twenty years. The proposed new Post office j for Defiance will have modern j furniture and fittings such As automatic keyless lock boxes.

Much credit is due to the indomitable perseverance and de i termination of the present postmaster to bring about the numerous improvements to the mail service which he has wrought in tile past five years. Or. Thompson says that sofar As lie now knows that beginning with july 1st, he will recommend a raise of the salaries of two of ii is clerks to better wages and that in addition he will recommend a night clerk whose business it will be to go on duty at 7 30 each evening keep the Gem eral delivery window open until 9 p. Rn., and during the night dispatch Aud receive All mails and open and sort them ready for All clerks and carriers who go on s duty in the Early morning hours i i i r i so that in moving the considerable amount of mail which accumulates during the night the Only delay possible would be the non arrival of the trains. Or. Harley will give or. Web Gerding a reasonable notice for vacation of present premises which As soon As accomplished tile work of removal of the old building and excavation will proceed. Or. Weigerding has been an occupant of the lot for about 20 years and it comes to him some what As a disappointment and hardship to have to move his business to another location but with the Many friends he has throughout the county they will no doubt follow him speedily to any part of the City he sees fit to locate his business.
