On the subject of postal matter
president in bis manage says:
The report ol the postmaster-general
contains a detailed statement of the opera
tions of the postollice department during
the last fiscal j-ear and much interesting
information touching this important branch
of the public service. The business of the
mails indicates with absolute certainity the
condition of the business of the country,
and a depression in financial affairs inevi
tably and quickly reduces the postal reve
nues. Therefore, a larger discrepancy than
usual between the postollice receipts and
and expenditures is the expected and un
avoidable result of the distressing strut
gency which has preva'led throughout the
country during much of the time covered
by the postmaster-general s report,
At a date when botter.tlmes were antici
pated, it was estimated by hia predecessor
that the deficiency on the 39th day of Jiinr,
1893. would be a little over 81,500,000. It
amounted, however, to moro than $5,000,
000; at the same time and under the in
fluence of like anticipations, estimates were
made for the current fiscal year ending
fvno 30, 1894, which exhibited a surplus
of revenue over expenditures of $7'2,2-1j 71
Jut now, in view of the actual receipts and
expenditures during that part of tho current
fiscal year already expired, tho report of
the postmaster -general estimates that at id
close, instead of a surplus, thero n ill be a
deficiency of nearly 8S,O00,COO.
The postollice receipts for tho last fiscal
year amounted to 875,896,833:!. 15, and its
expenditures to S,074,104.!K. Ibis post
oltice'iteficiency would disappear or bo
immensely decreased, if less matter was
carried free through the m.ils,an5i!em of
which is upward of 300 of seeds and grain
from tho agricultural department. The
total number of postoflices in the United
States on the 30th day of June, 1893, was
68,403, an increase of i'284 over the pre
ceding year. Of these, 3300 ero presi
dential, an increase in that class of 204
over tho Dreccedlnir year. Forty two free
delivery offices were added during tho year
to those already existing, making a total of
G10 cities and towns provided with free
deliveries on June 30, 1893. Ninety three
other cities and towns are now entitled to
this service under the law, but it has not
been accorded them on account of insuffi
cient fundi to meet the expense of estab
lishment. I am decidedly of the opinion
that the provisions of the present law
permit as general an introduction of this
feature of mail service as is necessary or
justifiable, and that it ought not to be
extended to smaller communities than now
designated. The expense of free delivery
for the fiscal year ending June 30, IS93,
wil! bo more than $1 1 ,000,000, and under
legislation now existing there must be a
constant increase in this item of cxpemli.
Ttere wero Clol additions to the domes
tic money order officers during the lust
fiscal year, being the largest increase in nny
year since the inauguration of tho system.
The total number of these olllcca at the
close of the year was iS,434. There were
l2.3o9,735 money orders issued from these
offices, being an increase over the proceed
ing year ol l,24o.29o, and the value of
these orders amounted to S127,!70,433.65,
un increase of. $7,5o2,C32,5S. There ere
ulso issued during the year postal no'es
amounting to $12,9o9,oiG..3. During the
vear 195 international money order offices
were added to those already provided,
making a total of 2197 in operation on
:i. 1892. The number of international
money oiders issued during tho year wu
l,o-V,299. an Increase oyer the preceding
year of 72,525, and their value was $10,
:Ul,SI7.80, an incrertc of l,222,5o0.31.
The number of orders paid was 3oo,9!7, an
increase over the proceeding year of l:',5o.'i,
und their value was $5,283,372 7o, an in
crease of $94 091.83. K'om the foregoing
fclaleraent it npnears that tho total issuu of
money orders and postal notes for they are
nmnunted to Ti56,821,:VH.2t.
The number of letters nnd packages
mailed during the year for special delivery
was 3,385,6o3, an increase over the pro
ceeding year of neatly 32 per cent. '1 in
special delivery stamps used upon these
letters and packages amounted to 8337,
C59.3o. and the messenger f' paid for
their delivery amounted to (250,592.71.

the promptness of mail delivery tit all
ofKcei, but it is the 6 pedal instrumentality
which puts smaller and way places in
the service on an equality in that regard
with the larger and terminal offices. This
branch of the postal service has therefore
received more attention from the postmas
ter general, and, though it is gratifying to
know that it is in a condition of high eitl
ciency and great usefulness, lain led to
agree with the postmaster general that
there is room for its further improvement,
There are now connected with the post-
office establishment 28,324 employes who
are In the clasa'Med sctvlce. The head of
this great department gives conclusive ev
idence of the value of civil service reform
when, after an experience that renders his
judgment on vhe 'subject absolutely reliable
he expresses the opinion that without the
benefit of this system It would be Impossible
to conduct the vast business intiustcd to
J desire to commend as especially worthy
of prompt attention the suggestions of the
postmaster-general In relation to a more
sensible and business-like organization and
H better distribution of responsibility in tliig

The foremost men ol the world write the literaturft
of contemporansoua activity for THE FORUM. .
Every great subject U taken up bl Iht Forum tthan It naturallr comet Into
public attention and ii treated by the beat authorities, Klthout regard to parlies
or creeds. It will keep any thoughtful reader Informed on the tasks and problems
of the time, as no other periodical does.
To many thoughtful people, the price of The Forum has hitherto been pro
hlbltory; Indeed all the treat Reviews have been too hi eh In price lor the muses
ol Intelligent readers, tlut now the number ot readers ol thoughtful literature
ir.en and women who w ish really to know what la lolnn on In the world out
side tho narrow limits of particular sects and parties-is irent enough In the
United States to warrant so revolutionary a reduction In price. The Forum
discusses important subjects, but It la not dull. The literature o1 contempo
raneous activity is, In fact, tho most Interesting of all literature. American
citizenship Implies that a man shall know the opinions of the foremost men
and the latest great achievements In every direction of activity.
