congratulated upon a state of efficiency
second to none in the South.
Your streets and side-walks have
been materially improved during the

A Ijaw hr Wltlcla ta Csrmiuient
Some time ago, a law was passed de
claring that the pay of postmasters
should be regulated by the number of
stamps cancelled instead of by thenum-
bersoia. This method was ageptea in
place of the "one which Tad-'previously
obtained on .' Account of the discovery
that many of the smaller offices were
defrauding the goverrimentf out of what
legitimately belohge'd td It by trading
stamps to retail merchants at a small
discount, these merchants in turn trad
ing them to wholesale merchants ,in
larger towns tor. goods. The extent o,
the increase in their , pay which som
country postmasters " must have gained
cannot be determined with .anything
like accuracy, but must nave Deen con
siderable, as is attested by the last quar
terly report sent to the ppstofflce, de
partment by the postmaster in thlsfcity.
This report shows an increase of nearly
$1,000 in the sale of stamps at this office
during three months, over any. father
period of the same length since the
present incumbent has been irt;omce

A report made to the postoffice depart
ment prior to the enactment of the law
showed; that thlsi fraudulent practice
prevailed very, extensively throughout
the country, and when this fact is taken
into consideration0 it will be readily
seen that, the government must have
lost many thousand dollars, which the
cross-roads postmasters pocketed and
pro-rated on- the 'basis of competitive
ability in tradipg stamps,! ,..
What is the responsibility of mer;
