The officers will make a note of the question, and I will give the information to-morrow.
IVIr. RRNNETT ^ s to the postmaster at Midland, I wish to state that it is not at all adequate for the accommodation afforded. My recollection is that the rent is only $70 a year, and it is only fair that that rent should be increased. The post office is in a building erected by the postmaster and has an equipment for the service equal to that of many of the public buildings that are owned by the government and which have cost the country a very large sum. I think there is a space for the general public who come to transact post office business about 40 feet by 20 feet. These facts should be taken into'consideration in the rental paid.
