A MAX was arraigned in the United
States District Court at Philadelphia
recently for stealing a package that had
been placed on the top of a Ictter-bos
for transmission to Chicago, being too
large to enter tiio letter opening. Not
withstanding the prisoner wa taken
with the package in his possession, he
was discharged, tho Judge renderingthe
following decision: "The top of a Icttc
box can not be presumed to be a dVig
nated depository of tho United States.
Merchants and others should know that
unless letters and ether articles are put
inside the box they are not posted."
This sems a singular decision, inas
much as the man was taken with stolen
property in his hands.
Ax interesting discovery was made by
Thomas Ailing a few davs ago at the
old Benedict Arnold house, on Water
street. New Haven, Colo. In taking
out a portion of the garret floor he found
a vault, which is supposed to have been
nsed by Arnold during tho War of the
Revolution as a biding place for sus
pects or fugitives whom he wished to
befriend. The lifting of some of the
carrot floor planking revealed the pock
et or vault underneath It is about four
and a half feet deep and six feet square.
and is plastered on the sides. Two or
more persons could remain in conceal-
tment there without being crowded. The
vault is located by the side of the large
old-fashioned chimney. On the flocr
adjacent to the vault formerly stooa a
large bookcase, and it is supposed that
through this entrance was obtained to
the hiding place. Inside the vault are
plain evidences of a former stair-case ex
tending to a small inclosed space on an
other side of the chimney. This place,
which is now plastered up, is supposed
to have been a sort of a closet. Whether
Arnold used tho ault for secreting
Tories or the patriots, or built it to af
ford a retreat for himself, is not known-
That it should have remained undiscov
ered until Mr. Ailing accidentally found
it, shows that it was well designed for
the purpose which led to its construc
Ix Berlin a great deal of escitcment
has been caused bv the official returns
of the Military Department of the Gov
ernment, which have just been made
public. From these it appears that the
growing disinclination on tho part of
the male population of Germany to
undergo military training and service
is seriously menacing the Empire's mil
itary strength. Fourteen thousand
seven hnndrcd and two men were sen
tenced during the past vear for attempt
ing to emigrate for the purpose of
avoiding required military service
Cases against fourteen thousand one
hundred and scventj'-cight more offend
ers in rhis particular line are still
pending. but worse still, the
number ot men from whom a
service is due, and who during
the 3 car past refused both to re
port for duty and to f urnish the required
excuses for the failure to enroll them
selves, amounted to the extraordinary
number of 163,151. The publication of
these facts in an official form has startled
the general public and produced the
greatest anxiety in the German War
Office. It is said that the Emperor is
greatly enraged over this declino in the
military organization. He is inclined to
attribute it mainly to the negligence of
the officials whom he has intrusted with
tho care of the German army. It is be
lieved that a thoMugh and speedy or
ganization of tho imperial military staff
will be at once set on foot.

County of Erie was warmly discussed by
the young lawyers in Messrs. Rozrs ot
Bowen's office. There were several who
were both eligible and anxioas, but It does

his own claims. Indeed, it is a fact that
after the matter bad been pretty well can
vassed they all agreed that he was the per
son that ought to have it, aad they urged
him to accept it, and he was appointed.

acquitted himself creditably and won

A good many anecdotes about Governor
Cleveland have of course got Into print.
For Insta jee, an Albany corres pondent re
marks: "Governor Cleveland is a tremen
dous worker. Very few men have devoted
as many hours to work within the past
vear and a half as he has. Certainly no
Governor ot New York State ot receat
times has been at bis desk as early and has
kept at it as late. Half paste, gat in the
morning finds him there, and, in the bnsy
days, midnight also finds him there. It is
no unusual thing to come across that port
ly figure at one or two o'clock In the morn
ing on bis way from the office to the Exec
utive Mansion, half a mde away. Tho only
hours of absence are those devoted to
lunch and dinner. With the assU ance of
Colonel Daniel S. Lamont, his private Sec
retary, the Governor carefully reviews all
bills, and It a doubt or anunwis provis
ion appears he sends for the Introducer of
tho bill and points out tho de
fect. Many previous Governors did
not take thU trouble, and thereby
give the maker ot the bill a
chance. They vetoed without any warn
ing whatever. This work that has been
voluntarily assumed by Governor Cleve
land, was done in the time of Governor
Cornell by three paid assUtanU of high
legal ability. When the warm weather
comes Governor Clsveland U not ashamed
to strip tor hU work and to sit at his desk
costless while a- throng of visitors file In
