POINT THE WAY
Wm. R. Hearst is contesting the elec
tion, as shown by the returns, of George
B. McClellan to the mayoralty of New
York City, on the ground of fraud, alleg
ing, among other things, that 50,000
Hearst men. on going to the poll tn note,
found that men had already voted in their
names, and that these 50,000 men there
fore were disfranchised. If Mr. Hearst's
contention be correct he will have the
support of the entire nation in his contest
In fact Mr. lvins, one of Mr. Hearst's
competitors for the mayoralty, and Dis
trict Attorney Jerome, have both prom
ised their aid in making the contest The
entire nation would be rightfully indignant
at the disfranchisement of 30,000 Amer
ican citizens. But there were some 600,-
000 ' other adult American citizen in
New York City who were not permitted
to vote in the recent election the women
of New York City. These women were
a vitally interested in the questions at
take a were any of these 50,000 men,
and were as capable of giving an intelli
gent decision on those issues; their taxes
help to support the government; their
labor in the homes and elsewhere i a
factor in the life and prosperity of the
city. A great wrong has been committed
in disfranchising 50,000 men in New
York City, if that actually has been done.
but a 20 times greater wrong has been
done in disfranchising 20 times as many
women in that city; and an infinitely
greater wrong is done every year in this
country in denying to millions of Ameri
can women the right to vote. Let Ore
gon "point the way on the Pacifio coast
to that higher and truer Americanism
which shall not deny self-government to

Postal Service? H-
Washington, Nov. 22. Postmaster
General Cortelyou recently completed and
forwarded to the secretary of the treas
ury estimates fcr the postofflce depart
ment for the fiscal year ending June 50,
1 907. They show a reduction of expens
es wherever it is believed it will not im
pair the service, but make provision for
development of postal facilities to meet
the growing needs of all sections of the
country, ' '
The estimates for the postal service at
large--the field service aggregate $ 1 95,
000.000, an increase over last year's
propriation of about $27.0000,000. This
increase represents the normal growth of
the service based upon what ' the postal
authorities regard as the most careful
and conservative estimates. Each suc
ceeding year see a large increase in the
business of the department The princi
pal items in the increase are the rural
delivery service, railway ' mail service
compensation to postmasters and their
clerks and the compensation of letter car
riers. For the maintenance of rural delivery
service and its proper extension over
$2,000,000 will be required. This is an
increase of $5,600,000 over the appro
priation for the current year, which in
turn is over $5,000,000 more than that
of last year, so that the present estimate
is $1,400,000 less than the increase of
the present over the preceeding year. The
dafictrfor the fiscal year ending June 50,
1905, was $14,672,584.
"This amount, the difference between
the expenditures and the revenues of the
department" it is officially announced,
"may be said to represent the actual cost
of the postal service to the people. , If
recent calculations are a "accurate as
they have been frequently in the past
they afford good reason for believing that
the deficit for the year ending June 50,
1906 will be considerably less. It is an
interesting fact that the total revenue for,
the fiscal year 1 90d exceeded the total
expenditures for the fiscal year 1904 by
You will always find us accommodating.
Try us and see if we art not ever ready
to oblige, and our prices are right '
