THE MAILs.—The friends of Samuel N,
| Williams, who for more than three years
"has been the trustéd head clerk of the
Tyrone post-office, were shocked on last
Friday morning when detectives Dick-
son and Griggs, of the U. S. post-office
' deparvment service, placed him under
arrest, charged with opening and ex-
tracting money from registered letters.
The story of the series of thefts which
has led the young Tyroner to disgrace i8
about as follows:
So far as is known the first offense
was committed during the latter part cf
August, but since that time the repeat-
ed shortage in registered letters when
they reached their destination had been
of such moment as to excite considera-
ble comment and complaint. Letters
for all points to and from this section of
the State, that passed through the Ty-
rone office, were the ones tampered with.
Suspicion pointed to that office as the
point where the thefts were being made
and inspectors W. W. Dickson and H.
B. Griggs were detailed on the case.
The former had been at work single
handed since September 13th and when
he thought Le bad the thief located at
Tyrone he sent for an assistant.
Decoy letters were mailed at Tyrone,
but all went through untouched until a
ragged, grimy Italian mailed one with
the ordinary foreign register. It was
opened though the money was un-
touched. This satisfied the detectives as
to Williams’ guilt and he was at once
At first he denied the whole}thing,
but when confronted with the evidence
he made a clean breast of it aud was tak-
en to Altoona Friday afternoon for a
hearing before United States Commis-
sioner W. A. Ambrose.
It appears that Williams was not driv-
en to crime by fast living or any urgent
need of money, for the entire amount
of his pilferings he had securely locked
up in his trunk at home: Eight hun-
dred dollars and more was the amount
he turned over to the officers and from
the conditions surrounding the affair
people are led to a belief that it wasa
mania for money rather than an ordina-
ry dishonest character that prompted
him to do such things. However that
may be he is charged with a very seri-
ous crime and will be punished accord-
ingly. ‘Williams had the reputation of
being one of the most courteous and
obliging clerks ever employed in the
Tyrone post office. He was always re-
garded as strictly honest, and the affair
that has just come to light has been a
genuine surprise to his many friends.
At the hearing, on Friday afternoon,
Williams made a full confession. He
was held under $1,000 bonds to appear
at the October term of the United Stated
circuit court at Pittsburg. The bail
could easily have been secured, but
both officers and prisoner thought it
would be better to proceed direct to
Pittsburg and await the session in jail
Bellefonters who undoubtedly suffered
from Williams’ peculations are: Jack-
son, Crider & Hastings bankers, whose
registered letter to a Mr. Reed at Spang-
ler containing $200 reached its destina-
tion minus half of its contents, and in-
surance agent J, C. Weaver now thinks
he knows where $10 that he couldn’t
find in a registered letter has gone to. An-
other complaint has just been entered at
the post-office here that a registered let-
ter addressed to a Hungarian at this
place, and afterward ordered returned to
sender, was opened and $5 taken out.
In resealing the envelope the thief was
not careful to get the flaps in the origi-
nal position, and the post-mark over it
was distorted.
YEAR.—Just one hundred years ago, ac-
cording to history, Colonel Samuel
Miles, of Philadelphia, directed the
survey of the town of Milesburg. At
that time it was the site of an Indian
village known as ‘Bald Eagle’s Nest’
having been the home of that historic
red skin chief, Bald Eagle. Andrew
Boggs had been the first white settler
there and his advent was in 1769, but it
was not until twenty eight years later,
in 1797, that the place had grown to
such size as to need a post-office. This
was the first office in the territory of
Centre county.
Milesburg was the leading town in
the county for many years and came
very near capturing the county seat
from Bellefonte. In factso bitter was
the fight for that honor that there has
been a traditional antipathy between
the towns ever since. The old Bald
Eagle canal was opened to that place in
1847, thus giving it the first commercial
connection with the out side world, and
there is no doubt in the minds of those
who know the history of the town that
with the facilities it commanded it
might have to-day been one of the
largest manufacturing cities of the coun-
try had the proper push characterized
its building. The site of Milesburg is
the most admirable, in every way, of any
town in this county and it is not yet too
late to revise matters.
‘Why not rise up, you citizens, and
make a grand demonstration in this
your hundredth anniversary then let the
dawn of the second century find you
quickened with a life commensurate -
with the advantages nature has lavish-
ed upon you?

Creek, has been appointed general

——T wo deaths of well known Dem-
ocrats occurred in Clinton county last
Thursday morning. They were Wil-
liam Teveling, of Mill Hall, and John
Rishel Egq., of Clintondale. The latter
was a candidate for county Auditor.
——1t is said that John Nearhoof, a
trusted employee of Hamer & Sons
grist mill, near Tyrone, has robbed his
employers of $2,700. His manner of
doing it was by taking grain from the
mill and selling it in his own store at

county is about completed. Sixty
miles of main-line, with about sev-

——A Newberry man was killed at
‘Westover, Clearfield county, a few days
ago in a peculiar way, He was helping
a friend unload a piano from a wagon,
when the shrill whistle of a passing lo-
comotive frightened the horses, they
jumped and the piano fell over on his
head, killing him instantly.
——J, C. Trout, a young Tyrone
Lochinvar, ran off with Miss Eva
‘Woodin, only daughter of the proprie-
tor of the City hotel in ‘Tyrone, one
night last week, and the couple were
married in Camden N. J. They are now
living at Newport, Pa., where the groom
has a position with an agricultural
implement firm.
——R. F. Sechler, the mail agent
who has been running on the line be-
tween here and Lewisburg for the past
four years, has been transferred to a
route between Harrisburg and Lock
Haven, on the main line. Capt. G. W.
Walls, of Lewisburg, who worked this
route during the former Cleveland ad-
ministration is Sechler’s successor. Mr.
Sechler was a careful, hard working
agent and his work was always of the
most satisfactory order. On his new
route he will have six days on and six
days off work.
—— The music pavilion, which for
several years ornamented(?) the corner
of the Court House yard and later the
public square in the Diamond, was giv-
en to implement dealer J. 8. Waite for
hauling it away. On Saturday he placed
a truck under it and transported it
easily to his shops on Water street.
Council had to give the pavilion
away because it had become an eye sore
where it was and there was no available
place to put it. It seems too bad that
Bellefonte can’t keep anything that
pertains to music. Surely there must
be a lack of soul in our people.
——On Wednesday evening Miss
Della Hull and Mr. William Rhine-
smith were married at the home of the
bride’s parents, on south Allegheny
street, where quite a number of invited
guests had gathered to witness the nup-
tials. The ceremony was performed by
Rev. Wm. Houck, of the Methodist
church, and it was at once simple and
impressive. The bride is the second
daughter of James Hull, a respected citi-
zen of this place, and will make an ex-
cellent help-mate. The groom is an
industrious and well-to-do young man,
whose continued work for the Belle-
fonte Fuel and Supply Co., has always
been of the most satisfactory kind.
—— While driving out of this place,
on last Friday evening, about nine
o'clock John Brugger and his sister
Elizabeth, of Unionville, met with an
accident that might have proved quite
serious, They had 'just reached the
place on Linn street, in front of the Me-
Coy residence, where a steep embank-
men leads directly down to the creek.
It was quite dark and one of Mr. Brug-
ger’s horses getting too near the edge,
fell over. Immediately both occupants
sprang out, but the fortunate breaking
of the harness saved the other horse and
the buggy from being dragged over the
precipice. Strange to say the horse was
not much hurt by its tumble over the
rocks and excepting a few slight bruis-
es continued its way home as if nothing
unusual had happened.
Here.—It seems that ministers have
aspecial fondness for Bellefonte, since
we have had three representative gath-
erings within this yearand five in the
last year and one-halt. The Lutheran
Synod had scarce completed its work
here, on Monday, when the members of
the Huntingdon Presbytery came drop-
ping in upon us. There were thirty-six
ministers and thirty two elders who
transacted the business brought before
them, and left Wednesday evening.
The session opened by the election of
Rev. John Bain, of Altoona, as modera-
tor, Rev. 8.8. Bergen, of Belleville,
recording secretary and Mr. John
Clark, of Williamsburg, reading elerk.
The first business taken up was the
ordinary routine of the Presbytery after
which it was decided to relieve Rev.
Charles Herron of his charge, at Cuar-
wensville, in order that he can complete
his education in Scotland. Rev. E. P,
Foresman was relieved of his charge at
Fruit Hill and Kermoor, at his own re-
quest. Dr. Samuel Moore, of Tyrone
was placed on the retired list. The re-
ports of committees were then heard.
They showed all departments of the
Presbytery in good condition. Special
contributions for missions were ordered
to be taken up during the coming year
which is to be hoped will excel all oth-
ers in the missionary work. The Belle-
tonte church paid $800 to the cause last
At the Wednesday session Rev. Jolly
was dismissed to join the Pittsburg
Presbytery. Various committees re-
ported and the following delegates were
elected to represent the Presbytery at
the Pennsylvania Synod, at Easton, on
the 19th, Ministers—R. M. Wal-
lace, R. A. McKinley, William Laurie,
H. C. Furbay, N. A. McDonald, D. K.
Freeman, R. F. Wilson, E. H. Mateer,
R, M. Campbell.
Elders—D. W. Miller, S. 8S. Blair,
Humes Smith, T. H. Wiggins, J. C.
Wiggins, J. C. Weaver, J. R. Sinpson,
A. O. Furst, John Clark, J. A. Craw-
Two of the most interesting events
were the sermons by Revs. R. M. Wal-
lace, D. D. and Harvey Graeme Furbay.

week, the class of ’97, at the Pennsyl-

The troubls arose from the suspension
of a studeni named Tease, who had been
one of the leaders of the ‘‘racket’’ last
week. His class demanded his re-in-
statement, a thing which the faculty
refused to do, whereupon the whols claer,
eighty in number, went out of school,

Yesterday afternoon the classes of ’95
and ’96 held meetings and decided to
quit too unless the Freshmen are all re-
instated. The matter stands in this pos.
ition. The class of '97 deems its punish-
ment for the “cider racket’ too severe,
and the faculty is compelled to stand up
to its ruling if every class in the insti-
tution should leave because of it.
IPSBURGER.—Jeremiah A. Sankey, a
leading business man and citizen ot
Philipsburg, was stricken with paralysis
last Wednesday afternoon and died on
Friday morning. He was born at
Belleville, Mifflin county, in 1835, and
his father having died when he was
pursuing his education he went to learn
the trade of a shoe-maker. He located
at McAlvey’s Fort, in Huntingdon
county, from which place he volunteered
gervice in the army. With an honora-
ble discharge he returned home in ’65
and moved to Centre Furnace, near
State College, where he followed his
trade of shoe-making until 1872, when
he moved to Philipsburg where he built
up a successful business in the shoe busi-
Mr. Sankey was a member of the
Methodist church, and a man thorough-
ly liked and respected by all who knew
him. A widow, two sons and one
daughter survive his death.
——DPresident John N. Lane, of the
River League of buse ball clubs, in pur-
guance to his call for members to send
delegates to a meeting at the Fallon
house, in Lock Haven, last Tuesday
evening, went down to that town with
J. L. Montgomery, representing the
“Governors.” Delegates from Tyrone
and Mr. Spence of Williamsport were
the only others present. The latter
moved to consider the recent meeting
at which the Demorests and Renova
ruled in such high hand regular, but
president Lane declared its proceedings
void, whereupon Mr, Spence picked up
his hat and left. As Tyrone and Belle-
fonte had no grievance with each other
the meeting ended. It is altogether
likely that the question at issue will |
never be amicably settled. However,
that may be it will not change the fact
that the ‘Governors’ are the pennant

it has tested the capacity of more thea-
tres so far this seasun than any other
attraction before the public. Coming
as it does perfectly equipped to give a
thorough production of the ‘Black Hus-
sar,’ the very best of comic operas, it
will, no doubt, be as attractive to our
theatre goers as it has been at all of the
cities that that organization has visited
this season. Headed by Charles A
Gilbert and Addie Cora Rued, two capa-
ble and famous operatic stars, the worth
of the organization becomes apparent,
and carrying a company that numbers
fully forty people, the stage of the local
temple of Thespis will on Monday even-
ing, October 9th, present a series of ani«
mated pictures rarely duplicated.”

gives us pleasure to learn that one of
Bellefonte’s most promising young men
has started in the practice of his profes-
sion in Philadelphia. Wm. S. Furst,
oldest son of Hon. A. O. Furst, presi-
dent judge of this district, is now an at-
torney in the Quaker city. Having been
admitted to the practice of law in the
various courts of Philadelphia county,
he has located himself at 1000 Chestnut
street, where he will doubtless make the
success of which his energetic boyhood
gave promise.
Mr. Furst was graduated from
Princeton, with distinction, in 1890 and
has since attended the University of
Pennsylvania, pursuing the law course
in the latter institution. He has trav-
eled extensively abroad and at home, in
fact the foundation for life's work hav-
ing been thoroughly laid there is no rea-
son why he should not rise to a marked
degree of prominence among the emi-
nent lawyers of Philadelphia.

which seems to presage that he is doing
a legitimate business, for had he not
done such here he would not have dar-
ed stay so long. He is a pleasing talk-
er and many people gathered about

He lett a very favorable impression here

acted business.
