CANCELED STAMPS CLEANED AND
USED IN LARGE QUANTITIES.
Washing with Acids--Patciniqg Together
Uncanceled Part-s or %everal Stimps
How They Are ItUed.
(From the New Yrk Star.)
"The most troublesome offenders
against government laws are the ex
perts who use canceled post age staips,
said a postoffice official the other day.
"They have a system of washiag out
the cancellation marks that is so suc
cessful as to make detection anost
impossible. In the offices of largc cities
like New York and Chicago, where so
many letters are handled daily, and
where rapidity is the most desirable
feature, it is impossible r the men
who caucel stamps to examine each
one carefully. Then, too, a great deal
of the work is done by gaslight, and
this is a point which tends to aid the
conspirator against the g-overnment s
"Any one who has seen a postof:ice
emploa in the New York offlice grab a
bunnie of letters and cancel the stamp
with lightning-like rapidity can read
ilsee how impossible it is for him to
detect bad stamps unless they are par
ticilarlv bad. The men engaged in
thebusiness of using canceled stamps
sreextremely clever. They have an
acid in which they wash the stamp-.
The acid acts upon the canceliation
, and not upon the colors of lhe
stamp. In this way a stamp that ha
once been used is relieved almnow en
tirely of its black mark. ..If :nV
black remains alter the washiing pro
_cess the operator takes a sb.rp knife,
wich he has male for the purpos,
Sanid-deftly scratches the tamp until
the remaining black marks are ahnot
if - - entirely removed. This can be
done r adilv when the marks are upoi:
the bald bear or the face of the his
toric personage whose viurnette adori'
the stamp, as this portion is white:
and upon a white space the stamp cani
be scratched until it is nearly tlu eI
"Another clever trick that iz em
ployed is the cutting of stamp-. Oltemi
in the hurry of postofice work the
canceilation murk does not cover the
stamp, but fall- only upon one corier,
the rest goiig upon the envelope. te
operator takes a stamp that has a black
mark, say upon the left hand lower
corner. lie careftully cuts a square
piece out of that corner, mnaking it
large enough to cut away all of the
canceled portion. Ile then secures a
stamp on which the canceilation mark
has fallen in some other corner. IlIe
carefully cuts out the same sized square
from the lower left hand corner of the
stamp, and joining it with the first
stamp he has a whole stamp upon
which there are no cancellation marks.
These stamps are used upon packages
which are tied with a sering. and the
sting is ingeniously placed over the
"Take any package of a dozen let
ters and v6n will see how easy it is to
find stanips for this business." As he
spoke the official drew from his pocket
a bundle of half a dozen letters. Upnon
the first letter the cancellation mark
was'only upon the lower right corner
of the stamp. The second wvas can
celed completely, and the third was
marked only upon the upper left hand
corner. So a combination could have
been easily made with the stamps upon
the first anid third letters.

dthey do with the worked-over
T 1hey do not sell them, as
sapose,:and that fact renders
dection more difficult. When a man
become successful in workiug over
canceled stamps he enideaver~s to gcet
into some business which will reqture
the sending and receipt of manyjregis
tered letters raad packages. The most
popular scheme is to go into the cheap
jewelry or fancy trick Ousmness. T he
operator lays in a stock of the cheapest
kind of jewelry andi advertises thor
oughly through the count ry, especially
in rural districts. A gold watch with
chain and charm for $4.50 is a bait
that catches a great many green spec
ulators,1mad as they are instrutcted to
send remittances by registerc d letter,
the operator receives a number of tive
and ten cent stamps. These stamps
he operates on, and when he retarils
the jewelry he pays the postage ini
whole or in part with canceled stampnls.
He makes 100 to 200 per cent. on the
jeweiry, and does a thriving busiines
In illegal stamps at the same time.
"Ah, yes, there are a great mjany in
the bunsiness, and their success ie woi

on the lookout and catch one of themi
when we catn. We get an idea that a
man is doing erookedl work, and tiien
watch him. Wheni we once get an
idea it does not take us long to as.cr
tain the truth. Whenever the personk
presents a package for registratig we
have it held for inspection, and~ if there
are caheceled stamps upon it w e are
pretty sure to find them. Otten the
bad stamps are detected before they:

w:a: Speculation in the South.
More than one man in Atlanta made
- millions out of government contracts.
Speculators, tradesmen and manufac
,urers struck it rich. What did they
do with their money ? Some spent it:
in extravagant livitng. Some p~urchlas
ed slaves and others bought Confebd
erate bonds. Others still looked ahead
and prepared for the tinal crash
These turned their moniey into greeni
backs, gold, townt property, too::cco,
cotton, diamonds, etc. Oine mnan
owned 100 dwelling houses in Atlant a.
After Sherman's visit lie had about
twenty left. Another successtul bu-i
ness man purchased thirty plantations,
besides all the Atlanta p~roperty he
could get. Of the men who accumu
lated wealth so rapidly and invested it
so wisely how miany held their gri'p 01n

The newvspaper ridicule of the Eads
scheme of ship transportation by rail is re
futed by the fact that the American screw
steamerDuke has been taken up from Pen
sacola Bay at Milton, Florida, and trans
ported by the Pensacola and Atlantic Ratil
way fifty miles or so to DeFuniak Lake, in
Walton County. The transportation wasa
complete success and the steamer did not r
show a strain from the trip.
Mr. Gladstone, in his manifesto to his
Midlothian constituents, lays particular
stress upon the impossibility of meetingf
the great diversity of opinion opposed to a~
his home rule scheme. The keynote of his e
position is vigorously expressed when hc i
says: "-Gentlemen. you have before you ;
Cabinet determined in its purpose, and ti
with an intelligible plan of its own. I see e
very little else in the political arenai, either a.
determined or intelligible."
Speaking of the honors done ex-Presi- st
dent Davis, General Bragg, Congressman -
from Wisconsin, said the other day., "It
will do no harm; Mr. Davis has many friends
in the South, andl why not let thenm hurrah
for the old man if they want toy The war
is over, and I don't believe in apologizing
forever to the Republicans. The Davis
hemonstration means no dlisloyalty to the
government.' General Bragg talks like a
Union veteran of the right sort.
Bishop McQuaid, of Rochester, says that
Mgr. Taschereau's mandate applied only
to the diocese of Quebec. The Knights of
Labor had a right to organize to protect
themselves, but had no right to disregard
the rights of capital. Should they attempt
o do this they will then come under the
general condemnation of the church and
.e;i1 actiron mney he taken. As y et, how
ver, they had not forfeited their rights to
ensideration by the Catholic Church.

News from Burniah is very seasational,
nd shows that the natives, with the assist
nee of the- Dakoits. have temporarily, at
mast. got the better of the British army of
ccupation. One dispatch states that the
asurgents have got possession of Iagda
iv, and have destroyed by fire no less than
,600 houses, inclu'ding the Chinese and
iamese bazaars. The hostility of the na
[ves who remain loyal to the dethroned
ing,. Thebaw. to the Chinese is intense,
ecause of China's openly avowed indorse
aent of Great Britain's seizure of Burmnah.
lhc officers comnanding the British forces
ave telegraphed to Lord Dutierin, the
7iceroy, that they are poverless to prevent
e rebellious rioting of the natives and
tave urgently asked for reinforericnts.
