Mr. MULOCK.

doing so. There was a very general complaint a year or two ago that, owing to the reduction of the postal rate from three cents to two cents, the revenue of postmasters was reduced. I brought the subject up in parliament last session, and, if my memory serves me correctly, the Postmaster General observed that lie thought the revenue would still be practically the same. I am still Informed by postmasters that they suffer on account of the reduction in their revenues. I would re-echo the sentiment expressed by one or two other members here to-night that the Postmaster General might well consider the desirability of reducing the salaries allowed to postmasters in large cities, like Toronto, Montreal and Winnipeg, where postmasters receive from $3,000 to $5,000, and possibly more, and allow the rural postmasters some extra allowance or increased rate. I feel strongly on this matter, because I have been memorialized in this matter in many cases, and asked to press it on the attention of the Postmaster General.

Mr. MULOCK.

The communities are pressing for an increased number of post offices, and a neighbour is willing to take the office and serve a dozen of neighbours. He has the mail brought to him instead of having to go for it to the post office, and a nominal fee is allowed him. That has been the practice since confederation. If my hon. friend will think for a moment, he will find that if we were to give $50 increase to every postmaster in Canada, there are 10,000 postmasters, and that would involve an increased expenditure of $500,000.
