It uisy not bo genrrally known
smo.jif tho rank and tilo of the rcgi
ment or the friends of tbe regiment
how close a call the Thirteenth regi
ment had to distinguish itself in the
recent Chlougo riots. Governor Paul
son tendered to Presidout Cleveland
tbo srvlcos of tho eutlre national
rnurd of the rtate at the tlmn when
matters looked very serious at Chicago
Ths governor's offer was accepted by
the president, aud he fully intended
calling upon tho Pennsylvania troops
to support tho regulars In malntainiug
the law and establishing peace and or
der. Tbe entire division was to be or
dered to eoncsutrate at Pittsburg at
an hour known only to tbe governor,
the division and brigado comtaandtrs.
Within two hours, when the ordur was
to be isiutd, matters at Chicago took n
favorable turn and Governor Pattlson
was advised the Pennsylvania troops
would not ba needed. The National
Guard of Pennsylvania is reaoguizod
by the president and Gineral rJoso
flold as the best organized and best dis
ciplined and most thorough equipped
national guard la the United States
end in any general emergency will be
tbe first to be calUd ont.
Tbe proper way to address letters to
members of the regiment while in
csinp to insure prompt delivery Is as
follows: First give rank, then name
in fall, then . company followed by
Thirteenth regiment, Third brigade,
N. G. P., Cainp Uauiuel W. Crawford,
Gettysburg, Adam county, Pa. If th
letter is intended for a privite. always
DreBx the term "Private," i' a non
commissioned oEo'T, designate "Ser
ge'ut"tr "Corporal;'' if a tuusluiuu,
so state, if an olnVer, jive his rauk.
The Drum corps gave the regiment
an agreeable surprise on paradi last
Thursday evening. The corps bits al
ways hern good, hot their exuellent
maalo Inst Thursday renin was t
superior to any previous effort '.b;t It
caught tbe admiration of the regiment
at ouoe. The regiment uevr uinreued
behind sueh inspiring and stirring mu
sio at produced by the oorpt upon this
occstion. The good work of Instruct
ors Wntklus and McDonald is havlu,?
a telling effect. The regiment may
well feel proud of its Drum corps. It
will have no anporior iu camp.

LOCATION OF Tllil VAULT.
The vault flora vuich tho stamps
were extracted it located in Posmuiito'.-
Vandliug's room in the northeastern
corner of tho building. Nona of th'
wlddows or doors of the room were
foroed aud hi! wcro found as they hud
been left upon doling the offius Thurs
day night. The vault wua opened by
one who know tbe comhlnatiou or who
was an expert in openinrc sufes. Tbo
inner doors wcro forced opc.i with a
bummer uud chisel or iiminy. It is
evident that tbo robbers attor
gaining tho postmaster's room quickly
opened tho outside) doors and secrotinj;
theumelvM iuuidJ worked avy at thulr
loieure cut of reuch of the yes of th'j
wutobman who, as a rule, sutltQea
himnclf by peering through tho gbss
doors to Biirviv this room when ha
mokes bis rounds. How the robbers
got in and how thoy got away from
tho buildlug v.ith so much booty with
out attracting notice, is the mysterious
part of the ttfftlr.
The roblory w is not discovered vn'.ll
1,'ito Friday leruoon, when Assistant
Poatmustor lleimin Ostuwus, havits
occasion to go into the vault iiot!od
that tbe shelf which hd besnpilvd
high with the reserve supply of stamps
was empty, Uj thcu,;ht it mljht be
thut Postmaster Vaadling might huvo
changsd the stamps to anotber place of
safe kcepiug, bat he w.tu so startled by
bis discovery thut bu took the Hist truiu
to Mr. Yundllng's summer residence ut
Muplewuod to appraise him of his sus
picious find. The pojtmuster could not
explain the aUouut of thj stumps from
their accustomed plncc, so it was cou
eluded that they hod been stolon.
Wbeu tliuy became fully satisfied
that a theft bod bean committed word
was wired to the department at Wash
ington, A telegram was sent In return
informing him that tho inspector's de
partment would iwuiQdiutjly take
ohargn of the nffilr,
It is not thought that Postmaster
Yandllng will be held responsible for
the lost stumps, at it wus through no
fault of his that they wore taken, un
less it can bo shown thut bis night
watchman was cinlods. Tho govern
mcnt Itself provided tbo place where
the stamps wore kept and If it was in
secure the government is to blame.

MR. SWIFT IS SORE.
He Will Have Nothing Moro to Do
with the Scranton Baso
The Sarunton Base Bull club, accom
panied by ex-Mauager Swift, returned
at midnight from Spilngtield. The two
dlsustrout defeats on .Saturday were
dae, It wat itutid, to the fact thut
Donovan cannot pitch and that Flana
ghan iu the second game Injured bis
fingers and thereafter was unable to
twirl In hit usual style.
Air. bwlft emphatically doclursd that
be Is done with the Scranton club. He
will havt nothing further to do with It
and 10ms onoulse will have to astnms
oharge today. When be left Reading
he says he was told to keep right
on managing tho club aud bat
been In oharge ever since. In
hU opinion tho principal ran
sou why Scran tou was defeated
by such lurgi scores on Saturday is that
our club, as at present constituted, is
outclassed. Nouo of the players ob
tained from Troy, excopt Fielder John
sun, be says, are an improvement on
the club's Slate league pluyers, and it
it now late iu tbe simou to strengthen
the elun materially.
While in the State league Mr. Swift
declared that the club made money.
He is eotivinced that it will lose money
In the Eastern league, aud at he doos
not want to be identified with a Von -ture
that it goiug ouckwavd, proposes
to retire from any hand in tho man-ugoin-nt
of the club.
The new playeis obtained from thu
Troy club did not arrive Inst night.
Thus far this teuton it is said that the
local us.ioclation has cleared $1,000.
All. Swift said that ou Saturday
Stahz was very aluk and unable to
play. The cintnges made in the posi
tions of pluyers was made necessary to
give the new men places on the
Mr. Swift's resignation will be pres
ented to tbo association tomorrow
night, It will eut forth us naions for
his uction that players have beeu siguod
without his kuowWdg-j or consent and
aguiust hln wiuhos and thut he does
not think the clnb will be a paying
property in the Eastern league, It it
suid thut eevtrul uf the players will ask
for their release so .that tiioy can sign
with SliGUunaoau or Philadelphia.
Swift was highly esteemed by tha
playert.and they are not, by uuy means,
well pleased with the present turn of
