DID UK RUB THE MAIL. ?
The Hearing of Berne Agent Hubley.
Geerge W. Ilubley, el Yerk, the postal
route agent between Philadelphia and
Harrisburg whose arrest was noticed yes
terday, had a hearing before U. S. Com
missioner Gibben in Philadelphia yester
day, and after a partial examination of
the case he was held in 61,000
bail for a further hearing next
Monday when additional evidence is ex
pected te be finished. As related, for
years past, and during the last two year.,
valuable packages have mysteriously dis
appeared from mails iu his charge. On
October 11 a parcel containing a geid
badge, set with a diamond and ether
jewels, or the Chi Phi fraternity of Frank
Hn and Marshall college, was mailed by a
lady from Mh Jey te F. K. Eslilemau, of
Lancaster. This was net delivered, and
as the badge was placed in the mail te
which Ilubley attended, Postefucc Inspec
tors Barrett and Camp placed a watch en
the .suspected agent. He was arrested en
Monday, aud the missing mark being
found in his possession, he acknowledged
having found it loose among the mails.
Complaints of losses between points north
aud south of Harrisburg and Xcw Yerk
have been frequent of late, and it is stated
that Hublcy's arrest will clear away the
mystery. Iluhlcy, it will be remembered,
was one of the main witnesses against II.

for robbing mails which pissed through
It has been developed that te the chief
postal clerk en the 1. & K. read, who
asked Ilubley why he was wearing that
college pin, he answered that his brother
was a member el the iralunuty am! had
leaned him the badge. Te the special
agent en the Pittsburgh division he said
that lie wen it in a Southern college as a
badge of the first honor.
Mr. Ilubley is a printer by trade, and
was formerly cleik iuthe Yerk posteiliec

adds : The editor of this journal paid a
visit te this cell a short time age, but did
net make as close an examination as the
representative of the Intelligencer,
but from a short view of it we don't doubt
that upon careful examination everything
will reveal itself as described by them.
When the editor of the Stnr visited the
prison he did se as a member of the grand
jui-. and probably if he and the ether
members had made an examination of the
cell like the Ixtellirencek man did they
would have known mere about it, and
would have been able te enlighten the pub
