RC6BED A NEWSPAPER QLUB.
Chariea Iji wrence Lancaster Cleans Out &
Treaaary at Buffalo. '
Charles Lawrence Lancaster, late of The
Buffalo Express, baa added a new wrinkle to
the business of embezzlement he has run off
with the funds of a press club 1 The facts are
such as to excite universal interest among
newspapermen. The first question each quill
driver will ask is, "How did a press club, and
in Buffalo, happen to have $1,100?" th.
amount Lancaster ran off with.
Well, it is admitted to have been an acci
dent. The club gave a concert and ball and
were overwhelmed by the kind patronage of
the public, actually taking in IK5. The
treasurer paid no bills against the manage
ment, but took the receipts and about $105
more that was ou hand by chance and skipped
to Canada. He went to Buffalo from St
in 1880, secured
work on The Ex
press, soon acquir
ed great proficiency
as a proof reader
and became quite
popular. Of course

It appears that Lancaster Iras made a mis
take despite his cunning. The new extradi
lion law went into effect a few days bofore
liis flight, so the club's agents went to his
father and brothers la Ontario and demanded
lynieiit on threats of legal proceedings.
xi is relatives very can.lidly answered that
they had done with Lancaster long ago,
knowing linn to be careless, dissipated and
too free with other people's money. He had
not gone to them, as he had promised his wife
to do, alleging that he lackod but little of the
needed amount, and could secure it. The
club has therefore raised a fund and swear
they will "hunt the geutleman to the end of
the earth." They l.egin by asking the circu

when the writer subjects himself or herself

they bad left their thoughts in their heads,
the ink in the bottle., and the paper at the

his clients as the "Love Charmer," advertised

And so on. The trial lasted two days and

ple of this policy has to do with the arrest in
Spanish Honduras recently of Edmund Stur

the American Exchange National bank of
Inew ork city. On May 4, 1888, he deliv

the Adams Express company a package con
taining f41,000 to lie forwarded to the United
States treasury at "Washington.
The package received at the treasury con
tained only slips of brown paper. No clew
could be found to the thief, and the express
company made good the loss to the bank.
Then its oflicials set the private detectives to
work Suspicion narrowed down to Craw
ford, lie retained his place as messenger for
several months after the robbery. Then he
resigned and went to Honduras. A disguised
detective sailed with him. In Central Amer

said to have been brought home to him, and
he is under arrest. The express company
spent over $.'50,000 to accomplish its object.
