Mr. John Jamieaon, tho jjeneral
superintendent of tho railway mail ser
vice, Hinilod as ho leaned back in his
chair and thought of tho difTcrenco bo
tweon thu way wo distribute now and
tho way it was douo before tho
war. "Yes," said ho, "things seem to
have changed since tho days whoti tho
mail bag used to bo received into one
coi ner of tho baggago car at Washing
ton and thrown out by tho baggage
master nt Baltimore or Now York, just
as ho received it. In thoso days the
railway car that carried tho mail was
not a railway postoflice, with its staff
of buy clerks, as it is now. Tho rail,
road did nothing but transport tho
bags from ono eity to another. No
opicial at the postoflice went along
cither to guard and protect them or in
uny M ay to handlo them on tho way.
"Tho distribution then usod to bo
done at a stationary oflice, and it was
very blow work, too; now thero is com
paratively littlo of tho work of distri-
bulioii dono at tho receiving oilloes
there is no timo for that. Tho letters
nnil jweknges ot all sorts aro thrown in
mail oars and tho work of distribution
is dnnn on tho ears whilo they aro fly
ing along tho rails at full speed on tho
way between the sender and tho ad
dresser. At present thero aro about
4300 or MOO railway postal clerks in
tho United States always on the road
and limy nt this work.
"You havo been familiar with the
workings of tho railway mall service

"Yes I havo been connected with it,

It was twenty years ago that tho rail
way postoflloo took tho place of tho
old distributing olHccs. You know
certain postofllccs, designated for tho
purpose, used to rcccivo and collect
tho malls both in largo parcels and scp
nrato pack ago from various points for
particular regions of country, aud then
dlstributo them to tho various places
to which thoy wcro addressed. Theso
woro called distributing oftlccs, and
served as landmarks to cuido tho
course of tho mails to distant points,
Thoy received them in bulk from tho
mailing officetsatid after assorting them
witli regard to their rcspcctlvo desti
nation, dispatched thorn by rail In
cliarco of tho bactzaco master.
"This system of assorting in tho sta
tionary oftlco was a slow prooes. Whilo
tho work was moving slowly on timo
it ' - - - -- 1 , 1 1
waa living nun bo wcro mo .rnuroau
cars, but the mall was standing still
tho samo place. Twenty years ago it
ocourcd to somebody that tho work of
distribution could bo done on tho rail
road car whilo it was flying along
Us destination, and thus tho work was
removed from tho distributing offices.
Railway postal clerks or, as thoy woro
then oallod, route agents, took their
places.' At first tho number of hands
were comparatively small. During tho
first year or two their number was not
abovo 800 or 400 tor tho wholo count
ry, but now thero aro moro than ten
times that number constantly
engaged, sometimes thero aro as many
as sixteen clerks aboard a singlo train
going from Now York city.
"On an avcrago a railway postal
clork works about fourteen hours
a night for six consoautive nights, then
ho has six nights oil. Tho men who
go from Washington to New York to
night, will return with tho mail train
trom .Now York to Washington to
morrow night, and will keep on going
between the two cities night after night
then thoy rest lor tbo next six. Un
tho through mail to St. Louis ono sot
of mc-n work from Baltimore to Graf
ton, whero thoy aro relieved by anoth
or set, who proceed to Cincinnati, and
a third relay tako up tho work thero
and go to St. Louis. This is how all
tho through lines aro managed. Ono
sot of men always travel between tho
samo two points.
"Carrying tbo mails is not tho lun it
used to bo in tho old coaching days T.
"No ; thero was no room for a staff
of distributing oierks on tho old atagos.
Why, sometimes tnoro wasnt ovon
room enough for tho mails. When
peoplo began to bo numorous and tho
number of letters increased, nod es
pecially when tho nowspapors began
to bo lormidablo both in size and
weight- -formidable, I mean, for a two
horso stage. You know tho roads woro
nono too good, and when tho oid ma
chino got stuok in a holo it was quite
the custom to hcavo tho mails, especial
ly tho newspapers, which woro twenty
or thirty times tho weight and sizo of
tuo lotters, overboard, so that tbo pas
sengers might havo room, and tho stago
with its lighter buruon might trudge
on. But tbo stages were independent
institutions, it was only at their own
convenience that they would tako tho
mail. Tho money had a good deal to
do with tho matter. You know tho
stago would not tako tho letters until
a sufficient number of them had accu-
mulatcd to pay expenses, and often
thoy might lay in a postofiico for weeks
before Mr. Stagey would think tho
quantity sufficient to trouble with.
'And when tho railroads camo into
uso fifty years ago thoy were vory littlo
better for speed or regularity j in fact
tho stages beat tho railroads for somo
time. In tho last years of tho coach
ing period, you know, tho distance be
tween Philadelphia and New York was
covered in six hours, being at tho rate
of fifteen miles an hour, whereas for
tho first week or so tho railroads com
plained that eleven miles an hour was
too mucn to ask tor tuo .money. As a
matter of fact tho stages kept tho mails
from the railroads for a good whilo on
a score of speed. Howover, it was but
a short time, and tho stago had to go.
But thirty yoars ago 300 routo agents
and 31 local agents performed all tho
work required in handling tho mail
for tho wholo country.
"Do you know that at present moro
than 120 tons of mail matter leavo

years ago, when a great deal of the dis

expressions were not half hearted and
perfunctory, but thoy were and, it may
almost bo said, enthusiastic indorse
ments of tho course tho Administra
tion has so far pursued.
Indued there could bo no reason why
this should not be so. It is very natu
that a public officer who is evidently
trying to do hie duty aud whose course
is marked by honesty and sincerity of
purpose, should receive tho lavorablo
consideration aud earnest support of
those who place him in position. It is
difficult to see how any Democrat can
withhold his cordial approval of tho
present Administration, although ho
may think that somo things havo been
dono that should havo been done othor

do not extend te matters that touch
