10. Although at the end of twelve months from
that in which it was issued, a Money Order, if still
unpaid, becomes legally void, nevertheless, when a
good reason can be given for the delay in presenting
it, an application for payment, subject to a certain
deduction, is entertained.
11. No application can be entertained for compen-
sation for alleged injury from the non-payment of a
Money Order at the expected time.
12. After once paying a Money Order, by whom-
soever presented, the Office is not liable to any
further claim.
13. To guard against fraud the remitter is recom-
mended ; —
1st. When he is well known to the payee, to sign
the letter enclosing the order with his initials only.
2nd. When this is not the case, either to make
the order payable ten days after date, or to register
the letter enclosing it, or to make the order payable
through a bank by crossing it like an ordinary cheque.
3rd. When it is not considered expedient to
adopt any of these courses, to send the remitter's
nsme (without a knowledge of which payment cannot
be obtained) in a separate letter from that contain-
ing the Money Order; although this latter precaution
is much less effective than either of the others.
14. Payment of an order cannot be made on
the same day as that on which the order was issued.
15. In case of the miscarriage or loss of an
inland Money Order in transmission through the
post, a duplicate will be granted, free of charge, on
a written application (with the necessary particulars)
being forwarded to the Controller of the Money
Order Office in England, Scotland, or Ireland,
according to the country in which the original order
was issued. Should an Order be lost by the remitter or
payee an additional commission (which should he for-
warded in postage stamps together with the application
for a duplicate order) will be charged. This additional
commission, for duplicate of an order not exceeding
£5, will be Is. ; above £5 and not exceeding £10, 2s.
If it be desired to stop payment of an inland order,
a notice must be sent to the office where the order is
payable, and a second commission in postage stamps
must be enclosed. If alteration in the name of the
payee or remitter of an inland Money Order should
be required, application, accompanied by the pay-
ment of a second commission, must be made by
the remitter to the Postmaster of the office at which
the order was issued. Should transfer of payment of
an inland order from one office to another in the
United Kingdom, or repayment of the amount of an
order, be required, an application inclosing the order
must be made to the Postmaster at whose office the
order is payable ; who will transmit in exchange a
new order payable at the place desired, but for a
less sum than the original order by the amount of
the second commission charged for the reissue.
Proper printed forms for making application in all
these cases may be obtained at any Money Order
Office. Whenever, on complaint being made, it is
found that the necessity for an application, entailing
the payment of a fresh commission, is attributable
to the Post Office, the charge will be remitted to
the applicant and imposed on the officer in fault.
16. A Postmaster is required to give information
how to apply for a duplicate order, &c., and must
furnish the prescribed form of application. If
payment of an order be refused, in consequence of
the reply to the question respecting the remitter, or
