FREE DELIVERY OF MAILS
Grants Pa.es Could Secure This
Tbe suggestion of the Courier rela
tive to a free delivery service for the
Grants Pass postoffioe has met with
hearty approval with the basinoss men
of the city and the matter will be
considered at the next meoting of the
Miners Association. Tbe question
will be considered of securing the co
operation of all the residents of this
citr In the work of Increasing the
revenue of the Grants Pass postoffioe.
The plan by which this will be done,
is similar to that carried out bv
Baker Oity aud other towns that were
all bnt entitled to a free mall de
livery. Baker City was only a few
hundred dollars short of the 110,000
receipts that is required by the de
partment before a town is given a
free delivery service. To wait for
the growth of the town to pot the
postefnae withiu the limit, meant a
delay of a year or more iu securing
the free delivery. Tbe Board of
Trade took up the matter aud a sys
tematic effort was umde to indnce
the business men of the oity to send
their parcels by mail and thier remit
tances by postal money orders aud to
buy ail the stamps they could handle.
The merchants wrote to the whole
sale houses, with whom they deal,
aud requested them to accept a part
of the remittances to thorn in stamps.
This was readily agreed to, and
oue Baker Oity Arm nsed $500 worth
of stamps in quarters in making re
mittances. The results of this con
certed action was that the Baker
City postal roceipts at ouoe jumped
to above the 110,000 limit and staid
there for the full year, by which
time the natural growth of the city
gave the postoffice the minimum re
ceipts for the free delivery, which the
department promptly grnntod.
This same work can be acoomplinhod
in Grants Pass, and a free dolivery
had at least a full year befoie the
growth of the city would bring the
much needed improvement to the local
mail service. If no effort is made
now, it will be fully two years before
this city can secure free mail delivery
for it will take a year for the growth
of the city to increase the postal re
ceipts to (10,000, aud then the receipts
have to be above (10,000 lor four con
secutive quarters before the depart
ment will establish the delivery ser
vice. The proseut quarter euds March
81, and if a beginning could be inado
at once, aud the small balance made
np In extra stamps purchased, to
bring this quarter up to (10,000 and
the receipts held to that sum for
a year, then Grants Pass could get
free delivery in April, IVOR, otherwise
It will be sometime in 1U07 before
this oity is given free delivery.
The advantages of a free mail de
livery are such that every resident
of Grants Pass should co-operate in
the effort of the Miners Association
to secure it, while the prestago aud
advertising that it would give Grants
Pass would be of great value to the
city and would bring such returns
as would amply repay the citizens for
their work In securiug .this much
needed public ntility.
