Postmaster Is a Public Offi Cer


POSTMASTER IS A PUBLIC OFFI CER. A postmaster is a public officer, and not tech nically a bailee. So the assistants or clerks in the office, appointed and sworn in as required by law, are public officers. The government is the bailee, and these offi cers are simply its servants. (Spence v. Harvey, 22 Cal, 336, 83 Am. Dec. 69.)
