J. MURPHY, PROP. Majestic Theatre, Phone 635 LAFOLLETTE SAYS P, 0. DEPARTMENT OPENEDJIS MAIL OF RIFLED LETTERS ON SENATE- FLOOR AS HE MAKES THS CHARGE Washington, D. C., Aug. o tho moat uensatlonal charges evei lodged against the postoilice depart ment wag uttered In the senate Unlay by Senator La Toilette of Wisconsin. There exists, according to La Fol lette, a wholesale practice of opening letters addressed to those who have incurred tlig enmity of tho. depart- ment. He pictured as the sort ol espionage on the mail of public crltlca of the department that which obtai in foreign countries in connection witli the operations of secret police. The charge was inade all the more sensational by tho manner in whlcl. Mi1. La FoHettti brought it to the at tention of the senate. In the midst of an address he was delivering on the pending postoillco appropriation bill the-Wisconsin senator held aloft a package of letters as a sample of more than 1000 addressed to himself which, he asserts, bore evidence of having been opened while passing through, the malls. Says Mail of Others Was Opened The senator, It is reported, also has been furnished evidence that the mail of other persons who have criticised the postoflice dfipartmenfc has been opened. Letters from prominent poli- ticians opposed to tlie Taft adminis- tration, are alleged to have been de- livered to the recipients' in -a condi- tion indicative of tampering. Senator" La Toilette was telling the Senate how he had written to between and postal clerks asking them to confide.-to him what efforts the postoffice department had made to induce them to resign from the or- ganizations they had formed for the betterment of working conditions in the service. "I might say in remarked the senator, as ho lifted a 'bulky pack- age from his desk, "that I encounter- ed the enmity of officials of the, postal service. My ninil was opened in vio- lation of the postal laws. Jt was sub- jected to an espionage almost Russian in character. I have here a bundle of my letters, showing that my mall was opened In violation of the law and rifled by some one hostile to the purposes I had in making the investigation." Senators Inspect Letters That was all the senator had to say concerning this charge on the floor of the senate. He replaced the pack- ages of letters on bis desk and 'resum- ed discussion of the appropriation bill. A number of senators, however, were aroused by.the accusation, and took occasion to examine the letters to which Mr. La Follette had called attention. They asserted afterward that they had been shocked by the palpable evidence of tampe-ring which the envelopes bore, and declared that a searching investigation of the scan- dal should be undertaken. In hundreds of instances, It Is al- leged, little effort has been made to conceal the work of espionage. The flaps of the envelopes had been raised by the rolling of a pencil and marks of the crayon were left on the inner surface of the em-slopes and on the letter contained therein. Says Evidence is Unmistakable In reply to Inquiries after the -sen- ate adjourned .Mr. La Follotte said he iiad no idea who is responsible-for Lhe opening of his mall. "The evidenc-3 that the letters were opened Is he said. 'Some of the envelopes show the marks of ft lead pencil which had >ecn Inserted and rolled under the laps. All o-l! these envelopes bad jeen rosealed afterward. One letter hat I recall was rasealed with red rax." The senator is preserving 'with care lot only the envelopes which show ivfdence of tampering, but also the 'eplles. that vrero enclosed. As the department is believed to be In poa- ission of the information contained herein and the names of tbe clorks ;ho furnished it. the senator is on he watch to observe whether his cor- espondents suffer any punishment or disclosing the methods of the ad- nlnistration. Senator Pallet to stands ready o submit liis evidence in any invcs- Igatlon inaugurated for the purpose tf fixing the responsibility and p wi- shing the offenders. Sought Private Information In Mr. La Toilette's letter to the lorks he requested answers to cor- aln slated questions concerning con- itlons of employment in the postal service, the difficulties which clerks .encounter In obtaining improvement of conditions, the redress of griev- ances, the secret disciplinary orders, and the methods adopted toy the post- master general to break tip the organ- izations being formed by the employ- ees. Tho circular letter stated that the clerks who responded might conflde to him any information on thnjie mat- ters which had come to their notice and the senator would protect them from any disclosure of their identity. To these inquiries Senator La Fol- lette received more than 8000 replies. Southern Alberto. Exhibition SPECIfiL NOTICE! Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, s.
