A difference of opinion exists as to
what ma' or may not be written or
printed on the address side of postal
cards. The object of the postal card
is to facilitate the transportation
through the mails of short commuui
cations at reduced rates, old tho
postal laws and regulations expressly
forbid the sender of a postal card to
put on tho addres3 side of a card any
thing but the address of the person to
whom it is sent, in its simplest form.
Rule 314 of the postal laws say that
"the amount of writing necessary to
complete an address on a postal card
must be determined by the local mail
ing postmaster without appeal." The
words "to bo called for" are the only
ones allowable, while "deliver imme
diately" is superfluous, as that is the
duty of every postmaster. Affixing
one's business seal, stamp or printed
address on the address side of a -postal
card is strictly prohibited by the
postal laws, as this side must be kept
clean. If the privilege were allowed,
every btismass house in the country
would make the pestoffice a means of
advertising its business. In fact, only
an address is allowed on the face of a
postal card, and an address, according
to the postal rcguititions, is the name
of a person or firm, the street where
on they reside or transact business,
the name of the city, county and stato
and the po3t office box, if they have
Another general m'utake is made by
business and professional men in re

The assistant postmaster-general has
recently issued orders tlwt business
vocations and employments will bo
excluded front cards and envelopes,
and that the namo of the writer only
should be given, without reference to
his occupation. The Postal Law and
Regulations on the issuing "special
request" envelopes reads: "Requisi
tion for 'special request' envelopes
must bo made by postmasters immedi
ately upon receiving orders from part
ies wanting them, at whatever time
in the quarter it may bo made, and, if
possible, should always be accom
panied by a printed card showing the
matter deBired to be printed. No
order is to be taken on credit except
at the postmaster's risk, and in no
case for lcs3 than 500 of any specified
denomination to bear the samo print

A Fearful Pall.
Arthur Foley, tho four-3ear-old son
of P. Foley, met with a terrible acci
dent yesterday which may cost tho
poor littlo fellow his life. His father
is employed on tho new public school
building, and the boy followed him
from the house yesterday morning,
clambering up to tho upper room
where Mr. Fojey was at work. Ho
went to the edge of the flooring aud
tumbled through tho light well by tho
stairs to tho floor below, a distance of
eighteen feet, striking on his head
and fracturing tho skull. He was con
veyed home and all that surgical aid
can do supplied, but it is thought the
fall will prove a fatal ono. The little
fellow attained considerable notoriety
a few weeks ago by going to San Fran
cisco as an independent passenger on
the Columbia. He is an uncommonly
bright child, displaying a precocity
far beyond his years.

could not survive.

Men Who Have Lost.
The Portlanders who have sub
scribed for N. P. R. R. and Trans
continental stock, buying and paying
for the amounts set opposite their
names in amounts of 500 shares and
over, are: W. S. Ladd, 1,500; C. H.
Lewis, 1,000; H. W. Corbett, 1,000;
Henry Failing, 1,000; Sol Hirsch,
1,000; Geo. Wiodler, 1,000; E. S.
Kearney, 1,000; Paul Schulz, 1,000;
J. N. and Cyrus Dolph, 1,000; Joseph
and Sam Simon, 500. Therd are
many others in this city who hae
bought in the neighborhood of 103
shares each to hold a3 an investment,
while a large number of others have
bought on speculation or margin,
which has almost invariably proved
disastrous. It is well known that the
Yillard stocks have tumbled fifty per
cent within the last three months, and
as a natural consequence those gentle
men with 1,000 shares representing
$100,000 cash paid for them, are each
out oi pocket at the present state f
the market, 350,000. There be
ing between four million and five
million dollars worth of these dtocks
held in Portland, the result has been
that mouy that would otherwise have
been doing our community somo good
has been sent to New York in pay
ment for them. This is the cause T
the stringency of the money, market
in this city. The gentlemen who in
vested in this stock did so on repre
sentation that it would pay them
thirty per cent, iu a few months like
the O. R. & N. Co., when on the con
trary it has thus far stripped them of
fifty per cent, of their cash advances,
or in most cases of $50,)00 each, be
sides depriving them of the use of
their money. It is worth of note
that the promoters of this speculation
are tho heaviest losers have since
gono in on margins, which at least
shows their good faith if not .good
judgment, Tho gentlemen who hold
this stock are not gamblers, as may
be seen by reading their names, aud
we hope that they may eventually
find their investment anj'thin but as
ruinous as it nowthreatens. Wcl-

to be understood that the city of Seat

could get his hands on it, and that, in

aries of the city. An end has got to
come to this municipal extravagance,
or the city will be involved in finan
