as First Essential.
PAYROLL OF $600,000 A MONTH
Working Year Will Be of Only Eight
Months, Owing to Difficulties
of Rainy Season.
Washington, Pec. 30. Conditions
on tho Isthmus of Panama and tho
progress which is being made on the
gigantic enterprise before the Canal
commission were Ret forth in the an
nual report of that body for the year
ending December 1, submitted to Presi
dent Roosevelt today. According to
the report, the work up to this time
has been confined mostly to the prepar
atory operations, although somo exca
vation work has been in progress which
will be mostly of uso in making esti
mates npon tho cost of future excava
tion. Sanitary conditions has also re
ceived much attention, and as a result
tho health of the isthmus is now in
While this preparatory work has
been in progress, very little has been
done in the way of actual excavation.
Eleven steam shovels have been in
operation in Culebra cat and approxi
mately 1,000,000 cubic yards of mate
rial have been removed. By this work
the levels of the cut are being put in
condition for the installation of the
largest number of machines which can
be effectively operated, and data is
being gathered -which will be UBeiul for
estimates of the cost of future construc
tion. The chief engineer, John F. Stevens,
reports that the working year will be
of only eight months, due to tho rainy
seaion. The problem of the Culebra
cut is simply a matter of disposing of
the material excavated. He alBO states
the necessity of obtaining more effi
cient labor, and aeBerts that there are
exceptional opportunities for young
men from the United States to secure
A thorough business administration
of affairs on the istnmus, he Bays, is
essential. The old railroad used by
the French company, was in bad con
dition, especially the rolling stock.
The payroll on the isthmus at pres
ent amounts to approximately $600,-
000 a month. An immediate approprr
stion iB therefore necessary.

SALARIES TOO UN
Poor Service Rendered by Cheap
Clerks in Postofflces.
MONEY ORDERS SHOW INCREASE
Large Amount of Money Recolvod in
Dead Letters Mailed to Fraud
Washington, Dec. 28. In his an
nual report mado today First Assistant
Postmaster 'General Hitchcock says
that tho low salarlos paid clerks in
first and Becond claBS postoffices aro do-
creasing tho standard of efficiency. It
is impoBsiblo, ho says, to induce effi
cient men to enter his branch of tho
servico, when tho salary to begin with
is but $000 a year, with no cortainty
of promotion for perhaps several years
Mr. Hitchcock strongly recommondB
a discontinuance of tho practice of in
stalling postofflces in public buildings
devoted in part to other branches of
tho government servico. Tho best type
of quarterE for postoffice purposes, he
says, is a singlo large room in a one-
Much embarrassment has been oc
casioned the postal authorities to pro
vide emergency mail facilities in min
ing towns, and Mr, Hitchcock recom
mends an emergency appropriation of
f 75,000 to meet such requirements.
There haB been an increaso of more
than $18,000,000 in the amount of do
mestic and of more than $5,000,000 'in
the amount of foreign money orders
issued during the year over the year
While tho number of undelivered
letters which aro on their way to the
dead letter office during tho year was
smaller than during the provious year,
the number of undelivered letters with
valuable- enclosures greatly increased
General prosperity of the tfoantry is
given aB one reason; auotber ia the
suppression by tho department of con
cerns using the mails for fraudulent
purposes. Mail for such concerns con
taining money, money orders and com
mercial paper was received at the dead
lefter office in unusual quantities.
Nearly 11,000,000 pieces of mail were
received at the dead letter office during
the year, including 1,608 that failed of
delivery in the Panama canal zono.
Over 1,500,000 cases of alleged in
decent and scurrilous matter received
attention. In the summer the influx
of offensive pictorial post cards became
so great as to call for a special order
by the department looking to the abate

this order, many thousands of objec

from the mails by postmasters and for

"The boycott in China haB knocked
the bottom out of the flour business,
as far as exports are concerned," eaid
Superintendent Armstrong. "Local
freight keeps up well but we need for

business policy to get that boycott out
of the way as soon as possitle."
Ralph Smith agent of tho Puget

"We are shipping less flour than
usual to China, and the boycott is re
sponsible for it. I don't know what
