I have a letter from a constituent of mine who is a mail carrier and has not received justice at the hands of the department. I refer to Mr. Gibbons, who has a claim some three years old. He had a mail contract and he went to Clifton, some ten or fourteen miles further than his contract called for. He sent in a claim for something over $100 and the department offered him $28, which he indignantly refused.
I am satisfied that if the facts were put before the Postmaster General he would recognize the justice of the claim. A department with a constantly inci'easlng surplus does not want to get services for nothing.
Some weeks ago I established a post office at the request of the people of the locality, selecting what I thought the best site, near the church. But I have received a complaint from some petitioners who say that this is not the proper site. There is a difference of
opinion among the people on this point. I have written to the inspector, Mr. McLeod, at Winnipeg, asking him to make a choice of a site.
