Mr. LEMIEUX.

The Post Office Department is in receipt of many petitions from the stampers and sorters of the city post offices throughout the Dominion pointing out that a material increase had been granted to the railway mail clerks a- few years ago; that whilst they were doing practically the same work they were receiving very much less remuneration, and asking, in view of the similarity of the work, that the two branches be put on the same footing. It was further pointed out that the mileage granted to the railway mail clerks in addition to their salary placed^ them in a still more favourable condition, and many other reasons were given as to why the stampers and sorters should be placed on the same basis, exclusive of mileage, as

the railway mail clerks. So strongly did the sorters in the city offices put forward their ease that the department has decided during the 'recess of parliament to go into the merits and demerits of the whole matter, and no action, therefore, will be taken this year as regards a change in the status of the railway mail clerks.
