WASHINGTON. Aug. 1 An order
Just Issued by Postmaster-General Bur
leson prohibits the use of bicycles and
motorcycles In th rural delivery serv
ice after January 1. 191. The order
amends aectlon tit paragraph 3. of the
postal laws and regulations.
Th new regulation authorise car

addition to those specifically designated
for auto servlc when permlsaion ia
obtained and a regular schedule ap
proved by the department, and where
road conditions will allow uninterrupt
ed service during a large part of the
The department waa Influenced by
several factors. It Is estimated that
at times during the year bicyclea and
motorcycle are used upon about SvOO
routes. It is held that this type Of
vehicle does not have the carrying ca
pacity needed for the parcel post serv
ice. Th elimination of bicycles and
motorcycles also will tend to equalize
the working conditions of the carrier
force and carriers using motorcycles
are especially liable to Injury, a fact
of Importance In view of the provisions
of the act of March . 11X4. under which
payments are authorised In cases of
carriers Injured or killed while on duty.
In bad weather It Is Impossible to
protect the mall carried1 ia motorcycles.
The carrier ualng a motorcycle Is
tempted to discourage parcel shtpmenta
Inadequate and effective equipment la
the cause of many complaints alleging
that the rural carriers are "overbur
dened." In rainy weather, too. It is is almost
impossible to use motorcycles, and the
consequence Is frequent disarrangement
of schedules, which causes serious in
convenience to patrons. It is desired
by the department that the rural routes
be so served that patrons may depend
upon the carrlera reaching their boxes
at regular tira stated times.

Nebraska Senator to Oppose
Confirmation of Wilson's
HOSTILITY IS. OUTSPOKEN
President's Effort to Bring; About
Compromise , Kails Figfet on
Parallel With Missouri, New
Jersey and New York.
OREOO.VIAN NEWS BUREAU. Wash
ington. Aug. 1. President- Wilson's
patronage row with the United States
Senate ja by no means at an end. That
the fight will be resumed with th re
assembling of Congress wa assured
recently when four Important offices
In Nebraska were filled by the Presi
dent. Two of the appointees were rec
ommended by Senstor Hitchcock: the
other two wer by William J. Bryan.
All four offices hav been filled by
Republican hold-overs since the begin
ning of the present Administration, be
cause of the fight between Senator
Hitchcock and Mr. Bryan over who
should control Federal patronage In
their state. Secretary Bryan, from the
beginning of his term, dabbled much In
patronage, and sought th right to die
tat In Nebraska. Senator Hitchcock
contended that Mr. Bryan, being In the
caomet. waa m no position to Interfere
with patronage other than that of tha
Stat Departments and Insisted that he.
as the only Democratic senator, should
b recognised by the President
Deep Hostility Exists.
Senstor Hitchcock Is an anti-Admin
istration Senator, or has been so listed
ever since th Senate Democracy di
vided Into factions. Between Hitch
cock and Bryan Is a deep hostility dat
ing back many yeara When Senator
Hitchcock submitted his pstronage rso
ommendatlona to th President. Secre
tary Bryan Interposed objection snd
recommended Brysn Democrats for the
positions Senator Hitchcock sought to
fllL For a time the President 'hoped
these Nebraskans might reconcile their
differences, but he hoped In vain.
Not until Mr. Bryan left the cabinet
did th President take hold of the Ne
braska situation, and then he sought
to compromise by recognising both
Hitchcock snd Bryan. Word comes
from Nebraska that the Prealdent haa
not cleared the atmosphere, but has
only roused Senator Hltcheock the
more, and that when the recess ap
pointments are sent to the Senate next
December, Senator Hitchcock .will ask
that th Bryan appointments be re
Precedents Set By Senate.
Th Nebraska patronage fight is on
a parallel with th New Jersey., New
York ana Missouri cases, wherein sen
ators Martina, O'Gorman and Reed
were able to persuade the Senate to re
ject presidential appointments In their
respective statea In cases where the
appointees' were personally objection
able. In those cases the Senate voted
unanimously to reject the appointees
who were thus objectionable.
It so happens that the two Bryan
men recently appointed in Nebraska
are bitter enemies of Senator Hitch
cock and have fought him for years.
So hostile are they that Mr. Bryan is
charged with having swept the state
to find the men most ODjectionaoie to
the Senator. Senator Hitchcock can
consistent! ask the Senate to reject
these Bryanites on the same ground on
which It heretofore rejected antl-Mar-tlne,
antl-O'Oorman and anti-Reed men
in the other States named.
The strsnge thing about the attempt
ed settlement of the Nebraska patron
age row Is that the President gave
e-reeter weight to Mr. Bryan's recom
mendations after Mr. Bryan left th
cabinet than he did when Mr. Bryln
waa Secretary of State.
