Texas will jeopardize the second class permit. Sample copies must be marked. The postmaster at Amarillo will be advised to this effect. Yours respectfully Edwin c. Madden third assistant postmaster general. We would regret to see the advocate deprived of its second class i mail privileges As it undoubtedly will if they still adhere to their present methods and Hope its publishers will in the future conduct their business in a legitimate manner. The controversy arose As a result of an article in the advocate to the effect that they were a sending the advocate to a number of people who were not subscribers and that they would expect those receiving j the paper on those conditions to pay for the same unless it was ordered stopped.
