All on that uniform basis. There may be some who do not get the increase for some reason. The controller determines the question. I jhave nothing to do with that except to act on his advice and the advice of tlh$? deputy.

Mr. FOWLER.

Where you have a system of mileage as with the railway mail clerks I suppose the amount of salary depends largely on the number of miles travelled; they are not all alike.

Sir WILLIAM MT't j c1o not think

that there is much profit to the clerks in the mileage as when traveling they are put to extra expense. Some of them are economical and may make something out of it, but from what I hear there is not much gain to them in travelling when they receive only half a cent to a cent a mile.

That disposes of .$32,456.50. The next item making up the $125,000 is an item of $90,450.70 for city post offices.

Some resolutions reported.

On motion of Sir William Mulock, House adjourned at 6 p.m.
