amendment would allow them an ex-
tra fee of four cents a mile. Con-
sidering that most mail carriers must
either drive a machine or a horse and
buggy, one could hardly think that
the salary could allow a man a sub-
stantial livelihood. Indeed, it reminds
one of thel poor copy clerk who so
often appears in Russian fiction.
No matter how conservative tho
mail carrier may be, the cost of the
up-keep for a horse or a machine
must necessarily be from $5 to $10
per week. An exceedingly large sum
cannot possibly be left to the mail
carrier after this amount is sub-
tracted from his pay.

would be granted to third and fourth.
class'postmasters would allow an in-
crease of $100 a year in' their salary
and would provide for a scale of
clerk hire allowances ranging from
$240 to $1,600 a year, based on re-
ceipts of the offices and the pay of
the postmasters.
it is often asserted that a republic'
will more or less expect its labor to
be done for a mediocre salary. If
this be true of some republics, it
hould never be permitted to be true
>f the United States. The substantial
increase may be great, but the totalI
amount which these men wjll re-
ceive even after the increase is
granted them can hardly be called
splendid. As the salary of these men
stand today, one cannot help but say
that tt).p medidcre compensation is
true in this case even of the United
States. Surely this country shoulds
efface any such verdict against her-
self, and at the sarme time allow these
'uen a salary which is but due them.
