THE GOVERNAIENT PAYS FOR IT.
In the tifccuEsion cf campaign contri
. buttons it fchonlil not bo forgotten that
Undo Sam himself drawa by far the
largest check for tbo txioustu tf a
nrvMtlential route!. T-his will appeal
when it is tUUtl that tbo tingle ilem ol
franked eiivvkutre, which arc tiipiuieit
free of charge to members oi the house
and senate, lias thus far in th. cunt
paigu cat the g;veiuu:ent lluoiili is

Since the government pa S cents a
pound fur the item of transportation
aluuo m its mail M-rvice it become.- clear
that thecal of junor aud priuting.in
making these mvtlopes is tin smallest
fort of a cbitrge by comparison with the
other i-speiiMj that the government
besrs. Over 5,100,000 envelopes have
been printed lor Kepresenlative Lin
ton's celebrated .A. 1. A. speech, and
some other fpeeches hae been spiead
over tbo country leai broadcast.
So enormous has been the demand for
printed envelopes to bo mod in the
present campaii;u, that the government
has been obhgeJ t j buj two atldiriouhl
envelope presses, vtbuh turnout each
about 10,000 pieces au hour. Tnese ma
chines vriil have uothmg to do after this
campaign closes, until the next begins
In the matter of folding the speeches
and patting them mlo the envelopes, the
crafty statetmin aain stes to u that
Uncle Sam pas the bills. Au appiopri
ation is made each year for folding pub
lic documeuts a, the capiiol, acd in
piesideatial jeaia the figure is made
very large. Tbis j ear, howe er, tuu ap
propriation has already given out, and
the clerks at the capitol aru wurkirj
without salary iu the ejp;ctation that
the next congress will reirulu;e them.
The actual printing oJ the speeches is
not paid for by tte goetnu.eut, but ia
done at cost by thu public printing
office, when desired, and in the esti
mate of cost n-J account is made uf the
plates uhich have already been pre
pared lor the Congressional Record
Kven with ibis item saved iu tddttsou ;u
the fact ih-: ihj public printing office
pays no ostensible rent on its great
workshop, tue uoernment is still un
able to compete withj outsiders, and
comparative. ie ol tno public docu
ments for campaigu use a.e now priulevl
in Washington. Liaton's speech, of
which ofiJOfiJd cjpira bavo bteu ssaued,
was printed iu rbtlcdelphu, and as a
rule the priming for tbe campaign has
been done in the plated mcst convenient
for general tlfetribmiin, lie envelope;,
which are furnished free, alt ccme ftoiu
Waihingtcu and are mailed in great
bags to tbe various litudquarierr, wneie
they are filled and miriled to tbe votcis.
It is impossible to get acccra;eiy a: the
cost with which this franking privilege
eaddles tne government during a prssi
dential campaign. At one yust office,
supposed to be Cmcago, -10 extra men
have been put on, and tbe regcUr cirri s
throughout the coaulry are sadJened by
tbe knowledge that there will oe iew
promotions this year, the money avail
able for that purpose fcein aow ex
pended in extra clerk Lire for bat.dlin
tbis mass of franked matter. Bevau-e
tbe printing 2s so generally dune else
where, the Washington postoUice doe
not gel the excessive a meant i.l this
campaign matter whicu woold have if
the government printing offi-.e Has able
to do at a cost price nbai outsiders can
do for profit. Hal the envelopes, and
such frankable matter as now gets
from tbiacfSce, amount in tbe aggregate
to as much as tbe mail upon which
cash postage is paid. The receipts of
tbe Washington office are aboLi ?0CO,
000 a year, and yet its work, eciajmic
ally acd efficiently une, taked a clerical
force as large as that in offices whku do
a business of $1,400,000. Measured by
weight, from GO to 74 per cent of the
mail that leaves tbe Washington office
goes under frank, and strange to saj ,
the amuout, o! registered matter which
pays the regular postage is half uf 1 per
cent. The registry tysttia n the ol.
method of getting a receipt for delivery
of a package, and eo when tLe a a. .6 are
forced to do a f-ee express bannerr,
