Washington eral Wilson in his annual report the operation the Post office department Marks that the financial and Industrial depression which has seriously affected the revenues the postal service for the past two years and disappointed the estimate his predecessors extended far enough into the fiscal year 1896 to make an unusually wide Gap Between revenues and expenditures. It is Gratifying however to report that a Large part this deficiency occurred to the first Quarter the year and that since then the revenues the department have reflected the general returning Prosperity the country. He ascribes the Gross abuse second class rates postage As the chief cause the yearly deficit in postal revenues. He repeats and in horses the recommendation Hla predecessors Bussell and Anam amp Ker for an amendment the Law in regard to the transportation second class matter and says a it is the estimate the department that two thirds in weight All the matter car tied in the malls is under existing Laws and classifications carried As second class matter at the rate one cent a Pound where it is not actually carried postage free. The aggregate weight second class matter in the year 1894 was 299,000,000 pounds during the lost year it increased to Over 812.000,000, a growth Over 13,000, 000 pounds deducting the weight that which is known As a county free being the matter which is circulated among subscribers free postage in the respective counties publication estimated to be 46,820,181 pounds there remained 285,314,-382 pounds which returned at the rate one cent per Pound a Revenue $2,653,-143.82. The average Cost to the department transporting and handling this matter is estimated St eight cents per Pound. Speaking the Extension civil service rules to letter carriers he says a an indispensable basis Good service has been Laid by placing the Carrier Force under the civil service system and no Effort should be spared by the department to insure a High morale in this Force and to familiarise the idea among individual carriers that As they enter the service by Merit system alone so likewise they remain in it by no tenure but by faithful and efficient discharge duty which demands self respect and honorable living. It is inevitable that a few in David Ais Here and them should interpret his stability employment As a personal privilege encouraging slovenly service and insubordination to Superior officers rather than a Reform based considerations a better Public service and such instances have occurred and will doubtless Continuo to occur even after the full meaning the civil service system is understood and accepted. But it is Gratifying to report that As a whole and by such overwhelming predominance As to make he exceptions More prominent the army letter carriers is a ways faithful efficient and the postmaster general desires civil service methods to be carried still further and higher in the Post office department he says Quot two my assistants Are charged each with the expenditure Over $40,000.000 annually together with the management and discipline tens thousands employees. The duties the other two Are not less onerous and multiplex. If such officials Are to be the real Heads this Bureau intimately acquainted with a the machinery and working them competent to direct and Able to infuse their own intelligence and Seal among their subordinates they should have a tenure at least As assured from the mutations and chances political contest As those subordinates. The continuity the department should be preserved in changes administration not Only along the line its subordinate and separate service but in that larger grasp its history its daily work and its healthful Progress which is found alone with these who direct and control its chief bureaus i concur therefore in the judgment one my recent predecessors that at least three the Distant postmaster generals should hold their offices by a civil service Merit tenure and not by a political tenure. I re Frain from offering a like opinion As to the fourth assistant postmaster general because four in class postmasters whose appointment is primarily allotted to he it Are yet outside that tenure. Quot the question extending civil service methods to the selection fourth class postmasters has naturally received my attention since 1 have been at the head this department it is beset with difficulties which my experience As a representative in Congress a Large country District during three changes administration brought Home to me More clearly than they might appear to a theoretical reformer to the representative a City constituency. I have studied various Bills introduced in both branches Congress in recent years and welcomed suggestions from other Quarter but i do not find myself Able to make Asye any specific recommendations this important subject in the line the legislation which has been proposed. Quot the order which you have recently approved providing that when the postmaster general shall consolidate with a free deliver office any other Prat office such consoll4teton�hal carry into the classified service at the free delivery office the Prat office department roster employees the office consolidated including the postmaster May be accepted As the beginning and foundation not Only a better postal service the Public a better and More business like accounting to this department but also a Wise Extension the civil service system to postmasters. It is my purpose to proceed under the authority this order As discreetly As i can and in the Long run As far As experience will justify so As to secure these commendable Resultay 40,000 live Anatolia massacre.

The Accord Between the Powers is understood to be Complete and the impression prevails that if the firm ans Are not soon granted the extra gunboats will pass the Dardanelles without the porters permission even if they have to be conveyed through by rattle ships stripped for action. The Powers instead ordering their fleets away from turkish Waters As the Sultan earnestly requested seem to be determined upon keeping them in this Vicinity for an indefinite period.
