Power Presses to Print Money May Be
Washington, Oct. 10. In order to ef
fect n saving of nearly a half million
dollars a year It is possible that Sec
retary of the Treasury MacA'cagh may
Ignore the violent opposition of organ
ized lalxir and install power presses in
the bureau of engraving and printing
to turn out the government's money.
The proposition became acute as the
result of a decision rendered by Comp
troller of the Treasury Tracewell.
In 1898 congress passed a law pro
viding that all bonds, notes and checks
shall he printed on hand roller presses.
The treasury department has from
time to time attempted to have this
law repealed so that It might Install
modern power presses, but organized
labor always managed to block the ef
fort. Recently the Philippine govern
ment, desiring to issue sliver certifi
cates, raised the question through the
bureau of insular affairs here whether
the bureau of engraving nnd printing
must print these certificates on hand
presses. The director of the bureau
reported thot ho could save between
$7,000 and $S.000 on the job if power
presses were used.

IOST IN THE PROMISED LAND.
Owing to tho absence of sign
boards at the intersecting roads In
southern Wayne county or on ac
count of their weather-beaten condi
tion, a number of Honesdale school
teachers and automobile drivers
were unfortunately lost In the vicin
ity of the promised land they desired
to reach on Friday last.
At different places along tho way
one of Honesdalo's lawyers, who
accompanied the teachers to Sterling,
where a district institute was held,
climbed trees, poles, fences and even
barked his shins In an effort to read
what the different boards had once
said. Some of the boards were
tacked on an angle of 45 decrees.
others' were perpendicular and some
were round lying upon the ground,
partly covered with leaves, In some
instances it was almost necessary to
stand on one's head to decipher the
name of the guide board. No won
der the travelers got lost with the
guide posts in such shape.
The supervisors in southern and
central Wayne county should see that
the sign boards are properly taken
care of. If weather-beaten or other
wise not readable, they should be re
placed by new guide boards.
It Is claimed that only one wagon
load of teachers reached Its destina
tion in a reasonable time that the
others floundered along the Way, but
