This is a daily average of over pieces. Of these the greater portion either nre not called for at the postof-lca to -nhich they are directed, or, in case of free-delivery offices, the address cannot be fomid, ithstanding everj known means is resorted to on the part -of the postal officials to effect delivery, Matter to the dead letter office, which cannot be delivered to the person addressed, is required to bo opened in its treatment for the purpose of return to the sender, and if the name and address of the sender be not shown -or cannot be ascertained from the contents, nnl it contains no inclosure, it mint be destrojed.

All matter mailable at less than letter ates of postage must bo so vrapped or inclosed that it can o readily examined at tbe onice of delivery, wall as at the mailing office, without de- roving the wrapper} otherwise itis subject to letter postage.- Much of the package and parcel matter re- el vod at the dead letter office is that which as beeti deposited for mailing sealed and osed against inspection and prepaid at less tan letter rate; being un mail able in such con- tion. and the name and address of the sender ot appearing upon the cover, whereby it might bo returned for correction and proper ompliance with postal conditions, it necessar- y is sent to the dead letter ofiice. A large proportion of tho packages sent to LO dead letter office are addressed to foreign ouiitrios. In addition to being sealed or closed against nspectjon and deficient in postage, many of contain articles that are un mail able irongh the post because of customs roguln- ons and conditions of the countries to 'ioy are addressed, or exceed the limit of size nd weight. In mailing packages addressed to foreign ouiitues. care should bo taken to ascertain bether they are prohibited from transmission o the country of destination, or can only Tx? orwarded when the postage ia fully prepaid at oreign letter cents per half ounce. Only bona lido trade samples are transmissi- lo at reduced rates of postage. Persons des'.r.ng to wail matter other than. etters to foro'gn countries should consult their who, being provided with the lostal laws and regulations! are enabled to :ivo proper information respecting conditions, cc., etc., of mailing to foreign countries. All valuable matter to be sent by mail hould bo registered. It will thus receive such as is not alwajs possible to give to latter sent in the culinary mails. Money hould be sent by money order or registered etter. Proprietors of hotels should omit the return equest from onvelopessupplied gratuitously to heir guests; and guests using envelopes fui ished by botels, should bo careful to desig- iate what disposal should be made of letters ent by them in case of non-delivery. In sending packages and jamphlets, and other mail, the address should bo placed on the article, en- ;losed as as cm tho wrapper. Should the wrappers become detached, as hey frequently do, through tbe handling iii- cidejit to mail transportation by sea or laud, it nay still be possible to restore the article if his precaution is taken.

Meeting In New York Over Which Chief Arthur Presides. favr YORK, September was an important day to the Brotherhood of Locomo- tive Engineers fotGsand Chief Engineer P. M. Arthur wasrln tdwn and present and ad- dressed the Grand Union League at Lyric hall. Sixth avenue and Forty-Second street, both at. morning and afternoon sessions. The socalled grand union meeting is in the nature of a national convention of the whole order and the brotherhood divisions were represented from Maine to California and Canada to Pauamn. The meetings was secret with closed doors, so that none bnt -those wlio were initiated were allowed admit- tance. The attendance was remarkably large, there being brotherhood men present at the morning session and, by actual count, at the afternoon session. Chief Arthur was accorded a most enthusi- astic reception, which amounted to an ovation. Charles Hall, of Division-145, New York city, presided. The meeting put into the form of resolutions its views, of Grand Chief Arthur's attitude in relation to the late strike of em- ployes of the Central railway, which resolution adopted unanimously. The resolution is as follows: Tliat it ia the sentiment of ttiie union meetinprthatwe approve the instruction given by our grand chief enginoec to the engineers during tile late trouble, ana wo have full ci nliience in his integrity- "We also honor tho engineers of the York Central railway in following the in- structions giveirby our grand chief engineer and keeping so close to the laws and rules of our brotherhood. A significent feature of the meeting also was the submission of a scheme of federation of the railway employes, presented by T. G. Babcock. The nature of the proposition, or whafrwas done with It, could not be ascer- tained. .Among other subjects treated by Chief Arthur in. his address was the advantages gained by belonging to the brotherhood. He advised every one to join the insurance or- ganization connectedfwith the brotherhood, by which members can take out policies for -either or or both policies to- gether. At the meeting there were repre- sented fiity-three divisions of Among the well-known engineers present were the following: Cyrns Smith and George TT. Pierce, of Colon, Panama; John A. Gate, of the Mexican railroad; J. H. White, of Cleveland, Ohio; C.B. Lotts, of Pittsburg. Pa.; O. "W. Bishop, Omaha, Neb; K. F. Phillips, St. Louis; J. B. Porter, Chicago; William McQueen, Hew York city. KIDNAPPED ARMY. WBtCIl TWO MEMBERS OF J. tfAaflZY WERE KILLED. A LITTLE BOY WITH A WINCHESTER. MEEBHTALE, Teac., n appalling accident occurred three miles rath of town today. During James Leden- an's absence from home his little son was ound in the yard playing with his father's Winchester rifle. An older daughter at- empted to take the weapon from the boy and be gun was accidentally discharged, with tal effect. The ball entered the boy's mouth d passed through his brain, killing him in- tantly. The screaming and distracted girl urried into the house for assistance and on ntering the door fell over the prostrate body f her sister. The ball, after its work of death n the yard, passed through the weatherboard- of the house and killed a second member f the family. Strangely enough the ball ook effect in the rear part of the girl's head and was found lodged in her mouth. A UUKXttCAKE. Bills for tho feeiiate and House to Con- sider. September unflK- ished business before the senate when it meets tomorrow will be the bill for the relief of the supreme court, which was under discussion. seveial days last week. The btllproviding for the organization of a court for the adjudica- tion of private land claims also occupies a place on the calendar, when it may be called up at any time. It is probable some action will bo taken upon both bills this week, but it is difficult to say just what it will bo. should passed it would probably-be to seud them to the house for concurrence in the amendments, so that it is not likely that either of them become a law at this session of congress. The bills on the order of business iixed republican cau- cus are two labor bills, and they will be called up by Senator Blatr at the first Senator Cockroll's opposition to the Sher- man bill, to increase national bank circulation, is sufficient to take that; measure out of the list of probabilities for this session. Conferees on the tariff bill say today that an agreement is not probable before Tuesday or Wednesday. As the report goes first to the house for con- sideration, it mil not reach the senate until the latter part of the week. It will then de- peud upon the desire of senators to get away whether the discussion shall be long or brief, Notice has been given that three tariff speeches arc to be made when tbe conference report is made to the senate, by Messrs. Aid- rich and Carlisle, of the finance committee, and Mr. Ingalls, who was in the chair while tho bill was under consideration in tho senate. While waiting for tho tariff bill, the general deficiency bill may come before the senate on the renorfc of the conferees, if not before, then directly after it, and it is likely to be the only measure of importance to receive considera- tion after tho tariff bill is out of the way. In tho house tho Langs ton-V enable election case has readied the stage which requires further action before any other business can be touched. The previous question is in order and, although in the ordinary course, the District of Columbia committee would be en- titled to the floor tomorrow, a yea and nay vote upon tho election case must be taken before tho usual order can prevail. So it will be necessary for the republicans to secure a quorum ns a preliminary to tho disposition of any business; and, aa a mattetof fact, they con- fident1? expect to have 165 members present Monday or Tuesday at the latest, which with tho assistance rendered by the presence of at least one democrat, will, they behove, enable the house to dispose of an election case. Should these expectations be realized when the house assembles tomorrow, the election case may be disposed of in season to allow a part of the day to the district committee. What will follow depends upon the progress of the conferees on the tariff bill. If theii work is complete by Tuesday morning, the re- port will be taken up immediately and dis- posed of in two days, at most. If not, senate amendments to the general deficiency bill will be considered; and, when those measures are disposed of, the house will have completed its work so fair as this session is concerned, and be ready to adjourn. THE TARIFF Strange Story of the Myeterlous Disappear- ance of a Boy Years Ago. FAM, RIVER, Mass., September pen- sion case extraordinary has just been settled. May 30, 1864, aT lad named Edward Sabins mysteriously disappeared from this city. He had been working on a farm in Swansea for a man named Job Gardner, and on tbe evening of May 29 had started for this city to visit his parents, who lived in the town, of Ho staid overnight with Fol'eo Officer Bowen Pierce, now dead, a friend of his father, and started for home the nest morning. That was the last ever seen of hind by frieud or family. IE seems that he had been shanghaied by some .bounty sharks and run into Boston, whero he TtU3 turned over to an unscrupulous recruiting officer, and mustered into company K, Nine- teenth Massachusetts. The recruits were im- mediately hurried south, and with little or no training were pushed forward to the Wilderness; here he was transferred to tbe Eighteenth veteran corps, stationed at Belle Plain, and with them on June 22d was gob- bled up by the euemy. The lad, a delicate boy, was hurried to Andorsouville, where the privations broke his health and he died August 10th, being buried in grave His old parents, in utter ignorance all these years of his fate, struggled along through life with but poor success until they found themselves on the verge of starvation. An acquaintance of theirs heard a Grand Army Republic veteran tell of how he had heard a yoang recruit tell about being kid- napped into the army. She told the old peo- ple, who applied to a lawyer. He kindry interested himself, and after a year con- clusively unraveled the mystery. The old couple-haye just been handed over arrears of back peniion, amounting to several thousand dollars, and their joy is great. The boy's body will be identified, if possible, and brought home for banal._____ THE VISITORS AT CRESSON. A Man Opens a xruHcnlfc Combination Safe In Chicago. CHICAGO, September Alexander Johnston, the mind reader, a difficult combination eoto in the presence of many well-known people at a hotel here today under remarkable circumstances. He was blind; folded, bis ears and nostrils were packed with cotton, his hands covered with thick kid gloves, and in his mouth he held a cigar, so even the sense of taste was temporarily de- stroyed. The proprietors and bookkeeper of the hotel stood behind him and thought of the combination. Withont touching either of them Johnston turned correctly to tha num- bers and swung the door open. Johnston. says this proves that man has more than fire The Conferees Think They Will bo Able to Make a JSeport Next "WASHINGTON, September repub- lican conferees on the tariff bill have been in session ail day today, endeavoring to complete the work npon which they are engaged. To- night one of them said that he was very well satisfied with the progress that had been made. The conferees, he said, had decided that it would be unwise to any statement respecting either status of _any one ef the scT. T iiuat nad. ttwn made either in rates or phraseology, for the reason that, as a matter of absolute fact, none of them were beyond the power of recall. Many items had been agreed npon, be said, which would rrdbnV.y Etoad aa agreed to, bntr which were all liaolo to change, and that, therefore, nothing definite could be stated as to what the committee had, done. The work of the committee was like puttingup of bricks, as children do in plov. disarrangement of a single brick -would result in the disarrangement of the en- tire line, and until the matter was finally set- the reports definite-statement could not be given. It was reported during the afternoon that the conferees had finished their -work, and that the bill would be reported tomorrow. A gentleman was asked if this was the case, and The President WIU Return to WasIilnKto: on Thursday. CRESSON, Pa., September presi- dent felt somewhat fatigued today after his lively experience in the coal regions of central Pennsylvania yesterday, and was compelled to remain away from divine service. He took a walk with Mrs. Dimmick in the forenoon ani a drive with Mrs. Harrison and Mrs. MeKee in Oie afternoon. The day was spent very quietly and there were not over a dozen pe; sons about the place. Mr. R. J. McKoo, of Indianapolis, tho presi- dent's son-in-law, is a guest at the executive cottage. Ho and Mrs. McKLee and children will leave here Tuesday night for Indianapolis The population of Crosson then will be nine persona all told, viz; The president, Mrs Harrison, Mrs. Dimmick, Private Secretary Halford, Miss Sanger, Mr. J. N. Barksdake representing the Pennsylvania railroad, the representatives of two press associations, an nly the weather bilge above the sea. Alter- nately the bulwarks to which the sailors were clinging and the koel were above the water. At 5 o'clock p. m. the vessel entered tbe centre of tbe storm and was for ten minutes calm. Then the wind began again from nearly an opposite direction.  ne of the party, said to be Cain, stayed in lie place until G o'clock that morning, iiobert 'mkerton is known to have much ave evidence in addition to the confessions f the three wreckers which will implicate all ihe men who were in the plot. So one ia known to have seen the men place the obstruc- ions on the tracks. One of the detectives said ost night that the Central company had no- oubt that Kiernun and Cain placed the obs- tructions on the track which came near wrecking a train between Karuers and West Albany on August 29th. It has been denied tbat ties were ilaced in front of this train, butt tie detective] said there could >o no doubt of the story. "When lleed mada us confession in Superintendent Bisseira office, his words were taken down by a stenog- rapher. Afterward the statement was type- written and submitted to a prominent lawyer. Coed's composition was illiterate and weafr, ie having told all the important facts, mt tried to wriggle out, implicating limself no more than lie could ?be lawyer rearranged the statement so as make the facts tell strongly against ttha wreckers. Then the three typewritten pages were read to Reed, and he affixed bis signature to the confession in the presence of witnesses. Cain's confession states that he was partly ntoxicated at the time and was induced to go nto the job by tho others, who said they wera only going to throw a freight train off tuo racks so as to cause a blockade. Buett's confession is said to have an addenda- n Which he declares that after the party started to place the abstractions on tho tracks ie did not see Kiernan and Cordial with thena. and he believed they had dropped behind in 5-reenbusb. The opinion still prevails in ccr- ain quarters that there was a man with ho wrecking that he acted the part of guard at some point remote from the -wreck. While Cordial has not made a confession bo i3 said to have let drop enough to condemn him. Siernan, the ring leader, heeins to be t'te only one of the men who has kept his moutji shut. KIEBJfAN AND C0KDIAT., INTEEViriVKD. As regards the above, John Kiel nan s.xwl tc- Might that he had no idea his name was con- lected with such attempts until the time ot ils arrest. "Ho had receijreil no from any one that ho had better leave town, nor hail lie received, money from any source defray the expenses of such a report. Ho did not sco Cain or Buett on either of tbe nights mentioned when they claim he sought them and asked for their help to do different jobs. John Cordial said the first intimation he had of his being suspected as one of tbo wreckers was when he diagged oat of his house in the early hours of the morning, and told he was wanted for participation in the Castletcn wrecking. He had never been told it would je wise for him to leave town. Ho had re- ceived no money in order to enable 'him to get out of town. Mr. Cordial emphatically denied every alle- gation in the confessions which seek to nm with the wrecking, as regards liia having any knowledge beforehand of the in- tention of any one to place obstructions on tha track. Kienian had never approached him as It i jig for his aid in trying to wreck the train. Cordial added he had always been a' faitafttl employe of tho Central road, and that sinca the day the strike was inaugurated he had nofi been near tho railroad property, nor did lia mingle with the strikers. He had remained at tiome most of the time. Treasurer Price, of district assembly 246, stated tbat he had never promised to assist financially nor had be over given either ona oE the five alleged wreckers money to defray their expenses out of town. He added that iC any money was given them for such purpose ho would be most likely to know about it. Master Workman E. J. Leo, of district as- said tonight that be d-d not know Cain or Buett and that neither of them had been given money by the kmghtsj for any purpose, nor had they or either of the other alleged wreckers been told by him tbat had better get out of town. He stated that ha knew nothing whatever concerning the at- tempts at train-wrecking until ho read tha published confessions. lie denied everything connecting him with either aiding or abetting the alleged train-wreckers.

He returned after all the crew had left except the watchman, Patrick Duff, and placed an obstruction in the machinery and turned acock to let tbe water oat of the boil- ers.
