Supplementary suggestions passed by Executive.
1. That all accounting offices be given an allowance for rent, fuel and light.
2. That twine, mucilage, pens, ink', pencils, &c., for post office use be furnished by the department, and not at the expense of the postmaster, as at present.
3. That the department make it more clear to all publishers that newspapers must be suitably folded and that they must be addressed plainly. That where labels are used, they must be in large, clear type, and that if possible, uniformity of colour in labels be secured.
4. That a full list of ' Suggestions to the Public ' be printed by the department and supplied to all postmasters for display in their offices, as tending to make it clear that certain regulations are found necessary by the department, and are not based on the caprice or convenience of the postmaster. For instance, that stamps and money-orders may be purchased during the distribution of a newly arrived mail, and that money-orders and postal notes are not available for purchase after the registered mail closes for an outgoing mail. Also, some suggestions as to the age of children who are to be considered as proper persons to receive mail from the wicket.
5. That when instructions are sent out for the weighing of all mails, that facilities for such weighing be afforded by the department.
6. That in view of the large sums of money at times in the mails in this country, and hence often stored in the post office, and in view of the value of the stamps and the importance of the books now to be kept, that safes ' be provided for accounting postmasters, or an allowance be granted to pay for use of same, when provided by the postmaster.
2. Is it the intention to accede to the request of the association ?
