WILL GO OUT OF CANADA.
If what PRINTER AND PUBLISHER hears is true, the new
hymnal for the Presbyterian Church will not be printed in this
country at all. The specifications on which tenders were asked
ere examined- by a number of our leading firms, but the terms
were pronounced too vague, and it is said that no actual tenders
were put in. The idea is that the work will be set up and
bound in the Old Country, as it can be brought in free of duty.
PaMNTER AND PUBLISHER would like to see the book done here,
and does not wish to see a single job of the kind go past our
own printers, who can do as good work as others in any country.
THE Post Office Department has lately had to dismiss from
office and criminally prosecute a postmaster for an offence
of near interest to publihers. This official coolly opened a
letter addressd to a newspaper in his town and deducted from
the money it contained a surn sufficient to cover a commission
he thought due him. Apparently the postmaster in question
thought he had some proprietary hold over letters passing
through his hands, as if an official can do what an ordinary per-
son cannot do.
The following order has been issued to postmasters by the
Department: I" Several cases have lately come to the knowledge
of the Department in which newly-established newspapers have
been accepted by postmasters for free transmission to sub-
scribers without the authority of the Postmaster-General. It is,
however, distinctly laid down on page 9 of The Postal Guide
that ' before any newspaper or other publication not heretofore
recognized by the Department as entitled to freedom from post-
age can be admitted thereto, a copy must be submitted to the
Postmaster-General for his examination and for his decision on
its claim under the statute.' It is hoped that this very clear
instruction will not be overlooked by any postmaster in future."
"LE SOIR" MANAGEMENT.
THE new Minister of Public Works does not intend to re-
linquish journalism because he has been elected to look
alter the public's interest in the great spending department at
Ottawa. It is learned on pretty good authority that the new
French evening paper in Montreal, Le Soir, has been practically
acquired by him, and that the deal will be finally wound up in
the course of a week, by which H. J. I. Tarte will become
editor and managing director. The new paper has not yet
bought any plant, being still run off by La Presse. Hoe's repre-
sentative, as noted in this journal, was in negotiation with the
management in Montreal last month, but did not close with
them for any supplies. The Domimon Type Foundry has also
been after the order, but nothing has been done yet.
