§ MR. FREEMAN THOMAS (Hastings)
I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury, as representing the Post master General, whether it is a rule of the postal service for a man transferred from one town to another to become junior to the men at the office to which he is transferred without regard to length of service, and if the senior postmen have the choice of walks.
§ MR. AUSTEN CHAMBERLAIN
It is the rule for officers transferred from one town to another, for reasons other than those directly for the benefit of the Department, to be placed at the foot of the class to which they are transferred. It is also the rule for the senior postmen of approved service to have the choice of walks.
