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.
