Our Postal Service.
FOR MANY years llio Amerl
. ran people have chcrislitd
the otiliilon tint their poatal
m rvlce wan tho br?t on
Ih that a delusion 7 Kvblontly
Howard of Ritni, Field unci
I'M reside thinks so, for In ti paper le
contly mul before the National A;iii
citlltiral Press lont;iio lie pointed out a
number nf particulars in which it burs
hcliind the postal standards of a liuni
br of other countries. For- instance:
A citizen of tho United Stales can
not solid a package of lnurchandlso
through the United Slates mails that
welRhs over four pounds, and the post
age 011 such a package is sixty-four
cents. A resident of England can send
it four-pound package fur twelve
routs, and even an eleven-pound pack
age can bo sent to any postofllc-e in the
United Kingdom for twenCJr-four
ci'iils; a resident of Germany can send
an eleven-pound package to any posl
olllee in the Ooiinan cmpiie, or In Aus-trla-ilung.iry,
for twelve and a half
cents, and in Switzerland an eleven
pound package can go to any post
ofilce in that republic for only eight
The cu?l of an eleven-pound pack
age sent by a, resident of Germany to
any postoirice in the United Stales
will bo sixty-threo cents delivered. The
cost of tho same package mailed by a
resident of the United States to any
postolllce in Germany will be $1.37 de
livered. A littl'.1 calculation will show,
therefore, that the American exporter
jf an eleven-pound package of mer
handibe really pays over one hundred
H'r cent. 111010 for its transportation
ban his German competitor. It fur
ber appears that while an American
manufacturer must pay $1.82 express
011 an eleven-pound package to Mex
ico, an Knglishman pays eighty-four
cents and n German only llfly-elght
cents postage. .
The conclusion reached by Mr. How
ard is that there is "not a nation In
Kurope but what has 11 more up-to-date
mail service than our own,-' and
he notes that the questions of parcels
post, sub-stations in the gieat cities,
pensions for old employes, etc., have
all been settled long ago by the var
ious Kuropean nations. Hut he for
gets to allow for the immeasurably
longer distances required to be trav
ersed in tho United Slntes. Let this
country become as densely populated
as thoie lie mentions, and we are will
ing to wager that our postal rates will
fall far below their's.
The safe plan when there's a small
pox scare on is to keep clean, cool and
A flodel Senator.
ILIilAM II. ALLISON,
who Is soon to be accord
ed the honor, which we
think is unique In Ameri
can history, certainly In recent history,
of a sixth consecutive lo-elecllon to the
benale of the United Stales, Is a living
refutation of the notion that the suc
cessful man necessarily has to be blus
tering and noisy. For moro than ten
years Mr, Allison has wielded more ac
tual Influence upon public uffnlrs,
meaning by that term tho affairs which
uro shaped at AVabhlngtou, than any
other 0110 inun in our public life, and
perhaps more than any other live men,
Joining that peiiod he lias been the un
disputed Jeuder of the somite, which Is

capncUy-lma had his -hand on every
Important net, of legislation and been
eontuilted with reference, to every con
siderable diplomatic problem arising in
tho course of government. Yet there is
no man In the public eye who hi less
assertive than ho nnd nono who moves
forward to tho accomplishment of
practical results with less fuss or
Jt bus been said ot biin good-humor-:dly
that he could walk from New Yoik
to Oniulii; 011 piano keys without mak
ing a sound; but It would bo unfair to
nssumo'.f'rom this that ho Is a man of
no jl;iji)t!s,s of conviction or courage of
principle. Tho qualities of quiet tact
and unobtrusive diplomacy tthUii bo
displays are temperamental, it js his
nature to bo affable, conciliatory nnd

arta of legltliuuto finesse, Homo men

power; he remains on a piano with his
fellow senators and dexterously rounds
them up as he wills.
in" "tho thirty years of Mr, Allison's
occupancy of tho senatorial position ho
lins had n part In most of tho ijatory
aiakjng of that period. It bus been a
period punctuated by many scandals
us ull us by ninny splendid achieve
ments of honest slutesmanihlp. Uut
through It all he him passed without a
smirch or KUsplolon, retaining nt once

the esteem of hH 1 olleasuos, Irrespec

Marconi told more' about his xystciu
of wireless tolegniphy. Many have
wondered how, with electrical curronls
Hying aiotind In every direction, the
privacy 01' wlioloss inosagcs was to
be maintained, .ir one were In busi
ness and wanted to lommunicuto on
conlldoiitlal inatt.'r.y with an agent
some miles away, it would certainly
be provoking to have one's hated rival
up the sticet haul out bis receiver and
capture tho entire concspondenco. And
If one were in love and wished to
bold more freciueut correspondence
with the adored party than Is conven
ient under only two mall dellveiies a
day, it can easily bo soon how embar
rassment might arise if it were In the
power of any jealous outsider to ob
tain duplicates of tho tender missives.
Hut Marconi, Hit? wizaid, has pio
vlded against such a contingency, it
lias been found pmslblo, ho assures us,
o to ultimo one transmitter to one le
celver as to umbo it practically im
possible for any 0110 not nciiuuinted
with the (pinlllles of those particular
Instruments to read the message.
There Is, aKo, Hi" obvious possibility
of using cipher codex, so as effectually
to bjillli snooping. Jut,t how this at
tuning Is done he does not explain. It
piesuuiably Is one of tin., tricks of the
trade. Jlut tho fact thai it is done Is
enough for the present. A load of ap
prehension is lifted.
The Italian Invento.- c::pects within
a year to have all these little points
work-d out on a practical and ec 0110m

The skeptical may iccall thai Nicola
Tenia s-aid nuVh tho same thing
months ago, and many other tiling t
equally astonishing, causing the public
to await anxiously tin- fullllinent of his
dreams. Hut Tesla is lUlferenl. Al
lowances have to bo made tor Tesla.
Marconi has "made good" much that
ho li.is promised. There is no reason
to suppose that he is at tho end of his
1'reMileiit l!oo?ovoll has chosen w ho
ly in his selection or representatives
for the coronation of King Edward. The
propriety of Mr. Kohl's selection is ob
vious. He represented this government
at the ipiecii's Jubilee, and for yoais
has been a commanding ligtiro in our
public lire, both in and out of journal
ism. Tho choice or General Wilson to
represent the army is cuually huppy.
Not only Is ho an accomplished soldier,
but ho has also had a career in civil
lire entitling him to more tlum oullu
ary recognition. Finally, in naming
Captain (Jlark to iciircsent the navy
the president has at once avoided the
controversial points of danger and con
ferred signal honor upon one of tho
elllcient figures in the late war who hail
heretofore not received his due. From
every standpoint tho personnel or the
special embassy is excellent.
Since ISM tho franking stum in
ICngland has been abandoned. Mem
bers of parliament must pay postage on
their mall the same as other Uritlsh
01 s. An attempt not long ago to ravlvo
the franking privilege was emphatical
ly defeated. The United States ought
to follow suit. Abolition of this much
abused privilege would go far toward
making our postal service self-sustaining.
