A residence one year is required in the state Delaware before a Man is qualified by Law to catch a Shad. On the morning april 11th, the Pennsylvania Railroad company began arresting Railroad employees conductors Breakman engineers and firemen who had been systematically stealing from the company for the last two years. It is estimated that $400,000 Worth goods had been stolen and for which the company had to pay. Detectives had been at work for a Long time the track. They supposed it was done in Philadelphia new York but could find no Trace theft East Pittsburg. They then directed their attention to the West end their lines West Pittsburg. In August last they got a Clew to work and every Channel was run Down carefully until they had evidence sufficient to act upon and at 2 clock monday morning about eighty warrants were issued and the raid by the officers was made All along the line from Pittsburg to Columbus. In september there were eighty Crews freight trains the Panhandle coming into Pittsburg and no less than seventy five these were found to he crooked. They would break the seals the door the car and then replace it and in other instances a Hole was broken in one end the car and some one would crawl in and pass out the goods and then report the car in bad condition. The arrests at Pittsburg have created the greatest excitement among the Railroad employees this City. The scenes about the jail doors this morning where relatives the prisoners had gathered to learn the canse the arrests were the Saddest description. Wives children parents Brothers and Sisters with tear stained faces stood around the entrances to the prison eager to learn the latest developments and pleading with the officers for admission to the jail to see the prisoners. At ten clock ten More were arrested. They were captured at the pay car while receiving their wages. This makes a total fifty six now in jail Here and it is supposed that As Many More have been apprehended at other Points along the line. Consternation prevails among the proprietors the a a fences and Dens where the goods were secreted and sold. In one instance the proprietor a notorious Den was detected in the act burning stolen property. The most important arrest made Here was Brake Man Young. He called at the jail to see one the prisoners this morning and was immediately locked up. At first he protested that he was innocent hut finally admitted that he had a Large lot the stolen property at his Home and told How the goods had come into his Possession. His confession will it is said convict thirteen Crews. Telegrams from Cadiz Steubenville and Points West Columbus report the arrest a Large number Railroad employees implicated in the robberies. The preliminary hearing will be held april Isth. Gut All the arrests made last night and this morning there was not one Man but bad stolen stuff either upon him in his room. Of course you understand that our methods used in ascertaining All this cannot be made Public. Suffice it to say that we have our hands every Thi Evish employee and we Are in easy reach those who Are arrested. When 1 say we i mean course . Gilkeson first As to him belongs the exclusive credit the Rich haul that filled the drag net. I can give a few illustrations the spirit these employees. In one Case just lately the Pursuit was so hot that Twenty five boxes Fine cigars were hastily burned in a caboose stove. In another Case a a a tips resulted in two Holts Fine silk being thrown from a caboose into the Monongahela River while crossing the Panhandle Bridge. In another instance a Crew broke open a car and found it full organs. One the men enraged by finding nothing the sealable kind thrust an Iron bar into an Organ and ruined it. We have evidence that a freight conductor broke into a car opened a piano and sat and played it All night stopping at Midnight to cat his supper off the polished top. The same fellow was thumping a piano in a dive last night when captured. Another brakeman who lives Wylie Avenue stole a Bolt cloth had a suit made for himself and gave the cloth for two other suits to two his friends another Man has become an expert a stolen accordian in All my expert knee Twenty nine years i never saw such a taste for miscellaneous stealing everything except a coffin and a Black Smiths Anvil has been stolen and made use some our detectives assured me this morning that not a Man was arrested but had from half a dozen to a dozen pairs clean socks the finest Quality and a Large assortment shirts All the thieves who were not arrested at their Homes were taken from their trains. To do this it was necessary to display the red Light at the second Avenue crossing and sidetrack the trains As they came in. This was so quickly executed that when the thieving Crew mustered the Little platform to ask what the red Light meant they could see glistening the wrists each other the fearful implements Justice by which the officers gathered them together. Conductors and brakeman looked aghast at each other As the guilty knowledge their crimes came before them. Fires were in Progress to Day All along the line the Panhandle Road made up stuff rid out the Cal Iose cars that the evidence things not seen May be wanting when the trial comes. Word was telegraphed along the Road for the particulars each Case. Freight trains have hau1 a at water stations and a delay made x the caboose was swept and garnished id in doing so evidence has been procured against unsuspected Railroad men which it will be hard to overturn. Almost every Man arrested had from one to ten Pawn tickets for All sorts articles his person. It is alleged that every Pawn shop in the two cities is represented the tickets. An amount several thousand dollars is said to be recoverable in this Way alone. The total arrests number sixty whom there Are fifty six in the Pittsburg jail. One the men named Black wac Xci eased bail. J. Gibbs was also released this evening. He is an officer the company and his arrest was a mistake. Two the men in the Pittsburg jail Are from Dennison Two others arrested at Dennison Are still there. Another arrest that Elmer Young was made at East Palestine Deputy mayor Gripp before whom the warrants were sworn out has fixed the hearing for next monday at 10 a. The office detective Gilkinson is crowded with the Many trunks and stolen goods All which have been labelled As from whom taken the Date and conditions. They will All be guarded to be used As evidence against the men. It is understood that no More arrests will be made Here. In fact . Rue said they had All the men wanted except a few no longer connected with the Panhandle Road who Are located and will be arrested within the next few Days. At a late hour tonight j. Dunlap who is regarded As the ringleader the gang made a confession to the detectives in which he implicated several outsiders and located fences at Dennison o., new Philadelphia and other places. Railroad detective James love Steubenville assisted by several detectives from Pittsburg to Day arrested Charles m. Autt Man John Collis win. Collis ii. Busby and j. Ii. Dunlap at Dennison these men were All employees. One the number Busby made his escape. The arrests were conducted so quietly and suddenly that there was no time to conceal the plunder. Aultman and Dunlap were taken to Pittsburg for trial. The Collis Brothers had a hearing before the mayor. They waived examination and were bound Over in in the sum $200 each in default which they were taken to the jail at new Philadelphia. It seems the conspiracy is shared by almost the entire freight service and trains Are moved with difficulty. Detective love says the stealing from the cars in the past three years will aggregate nearly $300,000. More developments Are condensed from the inquirer.

For the Best Home made buggy Phaeton a Fine Job painting go to Charles Houpt new Philadelphia Ohio. 16w2 once upon a time in a very Large settlement which we need not name but simply say that similar ones can Lee found in the state a a everywhere a the women had Given to them a very pretty Little Story the City fancy in the state they were told to imitate the women in this Little Story who worked very hard and kept their own Homes their doorsteps Etc., so clean that the men were careful not to do anything to mar the purity and All went Well Ever after. Now most the women in this state everywhere had been trying just these methods for years and years but they thought a perhaps our husbands Are different it May be that we have been remiss in some Way and we will go so they gathered up every speck dust and that kept them pretty Luis for there were great Ash heaps not far away that were being blown about by the wind but in front their own doors there was no dirt and they were not concerned about anything else. They scrubbed and scrubbed their own White Marble doorsteps in regular Philadelphia fashion they made Beautiful tidies and placed them around about and they sat Down by the fireside with Muscles in readiness to smile at Short notice As soon As their husbands returned. This went for years and years and always the husbands and sons came in dragging with them that they had gathered at the a dirty Pool politics a and the White Marble doorsteps bad to be scrubbed harder and harder. Sometimes the Hoys came in not Only Muddy but injured they could not help it they said they had fallen by the Way the roads were so bad. J ust out sight the Home there were Pitfalls and dangers that a a Mother knew nothing about. About this time some the women began to consider whether it would not be More effective to go to the source All this and do a Little House cleaning there. Some them began to Long for the Power to make things pure and Safe for their children outside the Home As Well As inside. They were told however that this would be a womanly and their part was simply to keep their own Hearthstone Bright and they did it As Well As they could although the highways grew still More Muddy and sometimes More than their Little whisk brooms seemed to be necessary when the men came Home at night. Still in the management All the intricate Domestic affairs they displayed not Only a conscientious earnestness but wonderful ability and they kept cleaning and made All things fair and Sweet within and sat by the fireside and smiled. One Day some the husbands came in More weary even than usual the a dirty Pool politics was getting wider and deeper and the roads were More dangerous and even the marvellous tidies and spotless surroundings did not rest them. Said one them to his wife a my dear 1 done to like to mention the subject to you for i know you Are a woman and it is not proper for you to hear what goes in the a dirty Pool a even if our boys does have to go there but i have been thinking about the subject and do you know it really seems to me that if you could take a few these tidies elsewhere they might do More Good. Of course you do not know about it but we really need better servants near the things Are not kept As clean As they ought to be. If you could help us to choose these servants i think it would be a Good idea. The fact is we need a Little better House keeping Down there. If some your management and womanly thought could enter into these affairs which affect us All it would be a help. It is delightful to hear these melodies the piano hut if you could also bring a Little Harmony into the caucuses 1 should be glad. I believe if you could help us that after awhile you would not find it so hard to keep the houses Beautiful and the doorsteps White for we should come in cleaner from cleaner most the women were ready to do this for they soon realized that their place in the world was wherever they could make the conditions better not Only for their loved ones but for All their Brothers and Sisters and not Only did they eare for their Homes As Well As Ever but they found that they could indeed do so much better since they had sent their influence Forth into the larger Home the whole world. They found that a a the Centre and heart affairs a was wherever they could lift their voices to help to sustain the truth and the right and make All things pure. Some the women did not want to try this Experiment for they could not do anything so unusual so dreadful so unfashionable but they kept scrubbing and they sat by their firesides and smiled harder and harder until they grew like the Cheshire eat into one Broad smile and dissolved into nothingness and after a few years no Trace could be found any the tribe. A. J. E. A Patent has been taken out for a a combined Bustle and chair a something like a very Light Camp chair attached to the Back the Over skirt. This invention should find favor especially with shop girls and artists. The Burden carrying a sketching Stool would thus ii avoided and if a Bustle must be worn it might As Well be made useful.
