If the new war revenue measure becomes law and the price of cigars increases as predicted, it may not affect the freedom of the seas, but it certainly will affect the upper drawer in the desk of Postmaster Raths, who has been distributing cigars to his visitors ever since he took office.
Among the Postmaster's New Year's resolves is one that if the price of cigars jumps another 50 per cent the cigar box will disappear.
This measure may also reduce the number of visitors to the office of the postmaster and render unnecessary the sign seen on St. Paul streets, "Do not park here."
