THE GREEN STAMP MUST GO-

The spooiiicatious just issued by the Fost-
rrMstcr General for the guidance of bidders
under tho next contract for postage stamps,
advertised for under dnte of June 7, 1539,
provide for bids for two Keriesof stamps of
different sisses one of them being - the size
now in use, the other about one third smaller.
If the stamps of tha larger 6ize should be
determined on when the bids are in, tha
colors will bo, as follows; One-cent, ultra
marine blue; two-cent, metallic red; three-
cent, vermlllion; four-cent, milori green;
five-cent, chocolate; six-cent, dark red; ten
cent, light brown; fifteen-cent, orange;

Rtamps of the smaller size should bo pre

orange. U ndor one form of bid tne contractor,
will be allowed extra compensation for any
change from tho present designs, and in an
other form of bid cbanges may be made at
the will of the Postmaster General, without
extra compensation. From the above it will
te seen that the color of tho two-cent stamp
will bo changed to either cartnite or metallic
red. ; In speaking of the proposed changes.
Postmaster General Wanamaker Bald he be
lieved the raller sized stamp would bo
quite as useiul and popular as the larger
size now in use, and by reducing the size of
the stamp a material saving would bj af
fected, which could be profitably expended
in a better and in every way more desirable
color. The metallic red proposed under one
form of bid-was the color of the two-cent
stamp which immediately preceded the green

NOW THE LARGEST CITY.
Chicago Annexes Hyde ' Park and
Other Suburban Towns,
The question of the annexation to Chicago
of tho closely adjoining suburbs of Hyde
Park, Lake View, Cicero and Jellorson was
voted on Saturdoy. The campaign which
has been conducted for several weeks past
was a spirited one, and both sides have been
making a tremendous struggle. The antis
were generally headed by the present office
holders in the suburban government, who
made a bitter flgbt against coming into the
city. While the official vote from all the
points has not yet been announced, there is
no room for doubt, from figures received,
that all the suburbs named have been car
ried by the annexationists. The various
towns give to Chicago an additional popula
tion of nearly 200,000, bringing tho total
up to probably 1,100,000.
The territory annexed will give Chicago a
total area, approximately estimated, of
about 174 square miles making; it the largest
city, in area, in the United States AH of
the suburban towns annexed are built up
solidly for miles, radiating from the old city
limits. A person unacquainted with the
boundaries of Chicago would not know
where ony of the towns began, the dividing
lines beiue the center of boundary stroets.
