The system used here does not require the sending of any names through the mails. In brief a person sells a letter to two friends. This letter has ten names on it and SI is inserted »n an envelope addressed to the name on the top of the list and the seller and the buyer walk io tho postoffice or to a mailbox together and mail the two letters. The buyers of the letters each prepare two other letters but leave off the name at the top of the list and insert their names at the bottom and start over again the process. No letters are enclosed in the envelopes mailed out, only the cash and no names are included.

There is little probability that all the senders of chain letters will be arrested, of course, because it would take more men than James A. Farley has working for him to make the arrests. However, an alarming number of the chain letters have been turned over to the authorities for investigation—and ihey all contain the name of the last sender at the end, and the other senders, reading upward. The following bulletin came to Adolph Seidensticker. postmaster, from W. E. Kelly, acting solicitor of the postoffice department: "The attention of all postmasters is -called to the fact that the so-called send-a-dime chain letters scheme and all similar enterprises now being operated through the mails at various points is in violation of the postal lottery and fraud statutes. This information should be communicated to all persons making inqTTIry as to legality of the scheme." Wednesday and Thursday the dollar scheme swept official buildings and business houses and still was gfcing strong yesterday on the street and in buildings i.where it had not struck the first tWo ffays.
