Thieving Star Ronto Bobbfrlfi.
From th. Phlliul.lpbUk Tim™.
There seems to be considerable ex
citement in the minda of some of the
Western Congressmen now arriving at
Washington about the Star route re
ductions. These reductions have af
fected many of the districts in the
West. There will be a great clamor
from the remote sections of the country
for the restoration of some if not ail
the service that has been cut off.
This agitation will he assisted as much
as possible by those who lor years have
been making use of these Star routes to
rob the puolio Treasury. The more
Congressmen clamor for a restoration ol
the opportunities lor plunder the more
the thieves will applaud ; it so far serves
to divert the attention of the public
from thieves to the Congressmen. Clam
oring for a restoration of that gigantic
swindle, however, is something that no
Congressman with reputation can af
ford. Public opinion has been very
freely given on this subject and the
condemnation is unanimous.
It will be lh ruin of any man who
undertakes to say that Posimaster Gen
eral James has not done just what
should have been done in culling oil
this extraordinary expense and defeat
ing further opportunities for enormous
robberies. The cutting down has been
done with the greatest care and after
the fullest examination, under the pel
sonal direction of Mr. James. It was
not done in any haphazaid way nor
with the view solely to saving money,
but it was done because the service was
not needed and was kept up for the
benefit of a ring who were plundering
No member can afford to ask for a re
turn to that sort of thing, and in view
of thoroughly well known public senti
ment on this point it will be a good
thing for any one who contemplates
the agitation to reflect before he gets
his foot in it. The fate of a Democrat
ic Congress, which a year and a half ago
was persuaded by Brady into voting his
extraordinary demand of several mil
lions to cover a deficiency in tbe Mar
route service, ought to be a warning.
Not so much was then known of these
robberies as has since been learned.
There was not then that universal con
demnatton of the system that baa since
Western Congressmen will find tbey
cannot take into Congress the notions
of the Star route service which tbey
may bring from districts where these
frauds have attained high development.
No parly can now afford to get on the
wrong side of this question. That
means the certain and speedy condem
nation by the country.

A Real Romance.
THI BEIESSS OF SIX MILLION** SBC EXT BAR*
Old Point Comfoet, Dec. I.—A ro
mance has just come to light here, in
regard to the marriage of Miss Fargo,
the heiress of six millions, made by her
father in Wells and Fargo'a express.
She became engaged during the past
summer to Lieut. H. G. Houires, of the
Army, statiooed at Fort Monroe. Her
mother opposed tbe match, but the
young iady having a spirit of her own,
determined to circumvent parental op
position, so on the 1 Ith of last October,
•he and Lieut. Squire* went for a walk
to the Hygeia Hotel, at Hampton. On
reaching Hampton tbrfy went to tbe
house of tbe Rev. Mr. Oravstt, and an
nounced their intention of being mar
ried then and there, Mr. Gravatl made
no objection to tying tbe knot, but
owing to the serious illness of bis wife
the party adjourned to the house of a
neighbor, Mr. Heffelfinger, where tbe
eeremony was performed. Mr. and Mrs.'
Squires then returned to Old Point.
Nobody suspected tbey were married,
as the clergyman and witnesses had
been bound over to secrecy. Towards
tbe last of October, Mis* Fargo, as she
was still called, left with her mother
for tbeir home in Buffalo, and a few
days afterwards Mr. .Squires followed
her anJ claimed bis wife. Locking
the stable door was no use then, so
Mr. and Mrs. Squires returned to Fort
Monroe, and tbe marriage was publish
ed as having taken place on the Utb of
October. So welt bad they kept tbeir
aecret tbat not tbe least suspicion was
' awakened in regard to tbe true state of
tha case, and the announcement was
a thunderclap to tbeir most intimate
