The PoHtoflice Appropriation bill as
finally passed establishes two-eent let
ter postage to take effect Oct. 1, 1883.
While this reduction from the three-
ceut letter postage will be gratefully
received by the public, it will inflict an
estimated loss of four to five millions a
year nt first on the postal revenues,—
Between now and next October the de
partment will be able to get rid of a
large stock of stamped envelopes. The
three-ceut stamp is much handsomer
than the two-ceut, audit will be in or
der after the reduction takes effect to
interchange colors and designs. After
Oct. 1st, there will be comparatively
little use for three-ceut stamps.
By a separate measure the House of
Representativefl readjusted the pay of
postmaster, so that officers of the
fourth class will J receive under the
lower rate of postage about as much
pay as they get now. The bill also ad
justed the salaries of 47,000 postmast
ers, which the chairman of the commit
tee explained had been rendered nec
essary by the action of Congress in re
ducing the rates of postage, to take ef
fect on October 1st next.’ The bill re
tains the present classification of post
masters. The salary of the postmast
ers nt St. Louis. Chicago, Boston mid
Philadelphia was increased from 4,000
to $0,000, ami at Cincinnntti, Balti
more, San Francisco mid Washington
from $4,000 to $5,000. The compen
sation to second and third class post
masters us at present.
