Washington. July 22, Charles
Hedges today was removed from
the office of superintendent of free
delivery of the Postoffice Depart
ment, on the charge of falsifying
his dairy aud loaning his traveling
commission, it is cnarged that ne
reported himself at-various places,
wheo, in fact, he watj not at those
places on, the dates mentioned, in
Borne iostances being hundreds of
miles away. . , " . ' .
Mr.'Hedge8, while making no
general denial of the charges con
tends that tbev were not sufficient
justification for removal. Ervin
Thorpe. postom$e inspector in char
ge at New York' who has been as
sieting' sin the -administration
of the free deliver? service since the
inception of the investigation has
b9en designated acting superintend
dent in "place of Mr. Hedges. The
official ' statement made public
today by Fourth Assistant Postmaster-General
:BristoWj- says in
part: ; : '-r ' C: -x .: "
: "Od October 25, 1900, he
Hedges states under oath in his
diary, that he was at Joplin Mo.,
on 'extension of free delivery Ber
vice,-', when in fact he was at Mans
field 0., attending the funeial of
ex -Secretary : John ' Sherman. On
December 7, 1899, he reports him
self at San Antonio, Tex., 'investi
gating carriers' services,' while in
fact ;SS9 in Mexico on a mining
property. In ib month of Octo
ber, 1899, A,.. W. Machen, superin
tendent of the free ; delivery, was
sick with typhoid fever and
Hedges was at .. the departm ent
acting as superintendent. In his
diary he states under dath that he
was at various places, namely, New
York, Philadelphia, ; Bridgeport,
Conn,, Camden N. J. and else
where, 'actually engaged in travel
ing on the business of the , free de
livery service. " ,
.'Assistant superintendent of free
delivery are allowed a per diem of
$4 per day in lien of expenses for
each day engaged actually in trav
eling on business; for the depart
ment. . Hedges false statements ss
to his whereabouts were manifestly
for the purpose of collecting per
diem to which he was not entitled.
There are many ' other instances
of similar falsifications. The facts
were submitted to the Postmaster
General some daye since who di
rected Hedges', removal for the
reasons above eet forth."
The case was worked up by
Postoffice Inspector George Sutton,
assisted by inspectors Bennett and
Johns. There were several charges
on file against Mr. Hedges, but
none of these constituted the
of his 'dismissal. The
which led to his removal were
covi re 1 by the inspectors in
course of their general investigation
of the records of the free delivery
service. The case has been under
investigation for several- weeks.
Mr.. Bristow summoned Mr. Hed
ges just before the close of office
hours this afternoon and . notified
him of his dismissal, j '

New York, July 12. The World
says: The United States is, it
seems, about to enter upon a little
retaliatory experiment with Ger
many. Our new Pure Eood law
has just gone into effect, : and ' the
first consignments of 'German foods
liable to inspection under it will ar
rive in a few days. k " 5 . ,
The provisions of this law, osten
sibly to prevent unwholesome foods
entering our ports, are such that it
will be easy-to so interpret and ap
ply them as to exclude several mil
lion dollars' worth of goods hither
to "made in Germanv" for Ameri
can , dinner tables. Sausages-sau-
sage casings, cheese, beer and wines
can all be declared "impure" by
our facile" experts, and either sent
back to the Fatherland or destroy
ed. ' This is the American protection
ist tit-for-tat answer to the German
protectionist law excluding Ameri-
can canned meats. The mass of
American and German, consumers
will alike pay the . piper for this
foolishness. Neither country irn-
l ports food from the other- for fun,
but to supply its wants. Neither
country except the protected hand
ful of its people engaged in produc
ing these foods, is interested in hav
ing the food it buys from the ether
excluded - from its ports or made
dearer in its markets. Retaliatory
tariffs and food inspection lams de
vised in their spirit are simply so
many spite fences erected between
nations, to their mutual injury and

ties of Kings 'Country Hospital,
Brooklyn are awaiting information
from Ashtabula, O., concerning
a patient who is afflicted with; one
of the most remarkable phases of
of aphasia that has ever come un
der their notice. , The patient was
sent to the hospital from the King's
County penitentiary, to which he
had been committed for vagrancy.
He was able t discuss intelligently
almost every topic, but his name
and. residence and facta pertaining
to his career before he fell into the
hands of the police. After several
days the man said he bad a vague
notion of having lived in Ashtabula
and thought he could learn of bis
identity by visiting that city. He
was permitted to make the experi
ment, and started at once for Ohio.
