OCALA, FLORIDA, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 19, 191E
PROVED BY THE
THAT THE GOVERNMENT CAN
OPERATE PUBLIC UTILITIES
Postmaster General Burleson Advo
cates Federal Ownership of the j
Telegraph, and Gives Other Infor-
mation of Great Interest to the
Washington, Dec. 19. Govern
ment ownership of both telegraphs
and telephones was the chief topic
discussed in the report of Postmaster
General Burleson and President Wil-
son and reports that the president
was about to make federal owner-,
ship of the two utilities an adminis-
tration policy. j
Mr. Burleson pointed to the sue- j
cessful inauguration and extension j
nt the parcel post system as a guar- j
antee that the postoffice department
is capable of handling further coun-j
try-wide business of great magnitude!
In regard to taking over the tele- j
graph systems, Mr. Burleson says in j
"A study of tho constitutional pur- j
poses of the postal establishment
leads to the conviction that the ;
I-ostoffice department should have j
control over all means of the com- j
munication .of intelligence. The first;
telegraph line in. this country was i
maintained and operated as a part
of the postal service, and it is to be.
regretted that Congress sa lit to ;
relinquish this facility to private en- j
terprises. The monopolistic nature
of the telegraph business makes it of j
vital importance to the people that j
it. be conducted by unselfish interests
and this can be accomplished only
through government ownership. i
Parcel Post Successful
"The successful operation of the
parcel post has demonstrated the ca-
pacity of the government to conduct
the public utilities which fall prop-
erly within the postal provision of
"Every argument in favor of the
government ownership of telegraph
lines may be advanced with equal
logic and force in favor of the gov government
ernment government ownership of telephone
lines. It has been competently de decided
cided decided that a telephone message and
a telegram are the same within the
meaning of the law governing the!
telegraph service and, therefore, it is j
telievei that the statute enabling,
the government to acquire, upon
payment of an appraised valu?, the
telegraph lines of the country will
enable the government to acquire
the telephonic network of the coun country."
try." country." Receipts 200,619,325.05
The receipts in the postoffice de department
partment department for the year were ?266, ?266,-619,525.65,
619,525.65, ?266,-619,525.65, an increase of more than
S per cent over the preceding year,
as compared with a corresponding
increase of 4 per cent reported 12
months ago. Th3 larger increase he
pttributes to the parcel post system
started Jan. 1, 1913. He praises the
parcel post work of the postoffice,
declaring that about 300,000,000
pieces were hand'ed during the first,
sx months of operation.
"Parcel post reaches everywhere,
whereas private expresses extend
their operations only to profitable
territory," he says. "Twenty mill millions
ions millions of rural residents now have
house-to-house delivery and collec collection
tion collection of parcels, a service formerly to
be had only in cities and towns."
Railroads Don't Deserve High Rates
Mr. Burleson goes into the matter
of the railroads complaining of un unjust
just unjust treatment regarding amounts
paid for handling mail matter in
some detail. He argues that the
railroads have received large bene benefits
fits benefits from the government, state and
ttational; that they are in law post
roads; that they are performing a
government function in carrying
ivail; that the government is not
carrying on the postoffice business
for profit; that the carriage of the
mails by the railrcads contributes to
their prosperity in other lines, and
that for all these reasons railroads
should carry mails for less than they
charge like commercial business.
An Honest Surplus
Another prominent feature of the
postmaster's general's report is his
assertion that there is a surplus in
his department for the year ended
June 30, 1913, estimated at $3,S41, $3,S41,-906.78,
906.78, $3,S41,-906.78, and-his argument is that it
is the first real surplus since 1883.
It Would Cost a Round Billion
Government experts estimate that
the cost .of taking over the telegraph
and telephone lines of the country,
as recommended by Postmaster Gen General
eral General Burleson, in his annual report,
would be over $1,000,000,000. A
party caucus may be held to get the
exact views of President Wilson and
a majority of the party leaders on
: The estimates of the cost of the
telephone lines is $900,000,000 and
that of the telegraph lines $200,-000,000.

of misusing the mails in operating a

Mr. Miller, in outlining the gov government's

plan of the swindle was for Louise
to write letters to men who wished
to marry her. Mrs. Farris' mailed
the letters, he said, Ora warned
away prospective bridegrooms, and if
they became insistent the .father
threatened them. Five men who

THERE'S A DIFFERENCE
The Times-Union comes along with
one of its usual sneers at President
Wilson, because he resented the ri
bald criticism by the Carabao Club',
consisting mostly of army and navy
officers, of the policy of the adminis
tration in the Philippines, and says
that it shows that the president, who
claims to enjoy the jokes of the Grid
iron Club, -is thin-skinned and incon
The -criticism comes with bad
grace from the Times-Union, which
wouldn't dare criticise any act of the
Flagler System. The difference in
the criticism of the Gridiron and
the Carabao Clubs is not in the feel
ings of the president but in the mem
bership of the two clubs. The Grid
iron Club, is made up of civilians of
all parties, who only exercise their
right .when they poke fun at the offi officers
cers officers and policies of the government.
The Carabao Club is made up of
army and navy officers, who surren
dered their right to criticise when
they entered the service.
The difference is plainly set forth
by the New York World as follows:
"The burlesque of the administra
tiori's Philippine policy at the Wash Washington
ington Washington banquet of the Order of the
Carabao was in bad taste and sub sub-versice
versice sub-versice of discipline,' and President
Wilson has very properly asked for
an investigation, with a view to the
reprimand of the officers responsible.
Gridiron Club burlesques of public
officials are well enough, and comic
after-dinner songs about European
rulers by naval officers may be ex excused
cused excused as individual indiscretions.
But the open satire of the adminis administrations

and navy officers who have served in

tion. palliation. The officers who sang 'Damn,
Damn, Damn the Insurrectos!' and
applauded the introduction of battle battleship
ship battleship models wih nosegays at the
port-holes and doves of peace in the
fighting-tops, were guilty of a breach
of service decorum deserving severe
rebuke. Theduty of officers In the
government service is to carry out,
not to formulate, policies. They are
free to resign and express their sen sentiments,

still holding their' commissions to
