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 111!

SMALL WCUp 8? STAMPS No Clue Announced Yet of the Thieves Who Qot Away with $8,300 Worth of Postage Stamps Government Inspectors Working Day and Night on tha Case Mr, Vandling Will Not, It 13 Thought, Be Hold Liable, Nothing could I? more mysterious than the post oflke robbory of Thurs day night by which tho Scrauton post office was looted ol fS 300 worth of KUmpsof the foil ivin? Ui'iiominittioiis: 800,000 twoj, CO. 000 ones. 80.000 threns, 10,000 fours and 10,000 five. Altogether they would make a package which one man could not well carry. AUaough fjuino ut tho best men of tbe govB' uitloitt necr't sorvtca have been at woik on thu cuss day and uUht, not the slightost clue to tho thieves or the txaut method of tho deed hud beeu obt.iiti 'd up to a luti hour last nittht. .Tha Work wua utif donbtedly well punned aud ably car tied oat, and it is q-iibi s ,f j to say, from what evldanco was Ult behind, that tho work was not dotio by any or dinary criminals. It io now prstty generally W.U-ved that tho deed was accomplished dur ing Thursday uilit at an hour when the two night chrks, Ituah Wright and Chris Neher, were busy dispatch ing mills and when tho w.itohtnnn, Jol.u P. White, was inspecting a dlu- tunt part or tne bniiaiiii;, 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. W.PAUTilkl.NT NOIU-'ILD. 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. The pottoftko at V bitiboro, near Uticu, ii.

SWIFT IS SORE. He Will Have Nothing Moro to Do with the Scranton Baso Ball Club. 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 team. 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 affairs. Ok?.

Mr. Niland and make good tbe Injury they have doue me. I can not afford to stand idly by and allow a scurrilous journal to traduce and vlllify my character. If tbe Budget does not tqaelah Niland 1 will never let up on them nutli I have stopped the ial of the paper in this town entirely. I could prevent tbesale of the paper at onoe by arresting every boy who bandies it on Sunday, but as that would eutsll great hardships on many poor families I will be satisfied with accomplishing this work by de greet, arresting boys wbo have been warned, and eonvinced that I am iu dead earnest and finally wheu there can be no doubt of my determination and no chance for them to plead ignor ance, I will ttrlko a sweeping blow. It is not likely that a boy will rnn the risk of paying a flue of 1 and costs a second time." ANOTHER TIRED OF LIFE. A Watery Orave Probably the Remit of fiulcide.
