White, a postal clerk runniug through Poslvillo. on the Mnliregnr & Sanborn run, has e.orue to grief, as will bo sees by the following, taken from Tuesday's Telegraph: "Some time ago reports of losses of letters and morctiatuliiD packages on the C. M. Sc St. P. between McGregor and Sanborn, Iowa, began to come in to Chief Clerk Stewart of the mail service at Dubuque, and he reported the mutter to Chief lo«pcctor J. C. Stuart, of Chicago. Enough was learned to faston suspicion on J. D. White, of Sanborn, Iowa, a railway postal clerk run- uing between McGregor and Sanborn, oa the C. M. A St. P. Finally by means of decoy letters aud marked mouoy, While was trapped last night, tho inspector tludiug the marked mon- oy on his person. Whito was b'-ougbt to Uubuque this morning and arraigned before United States Confmifiionar Hobbs. Ho ploadud guilty and gave bail for his appearance at the April term of United Stales court. White broke down completely and made a confession. He said he had been stealing for about three months past, taking letters which had the npearance of containing money au<' ,lso merchandise packages. The postal officers say the stealing has been going on longer than this, and that nftv cases of thoft havo been reported. Whito is an utterly used up man. and it Is feared he may commit suicide. Ho is about 56 yoars old, a temperate man and apparently under no necessily of stealing, as his family was not known to bo extravagant and be was getting a salary of $1,000 a year. He has baen in the mail service sines 1872 except a brief lime during Cleveland's administration. His horns was in Sanborn, where he was Tory hijrlil)' respected. He has an excellent family, including a »on 25 years old. /lo and his family have be mi prominent in church uircles at S:»iborn. He is the brother of J. White, geuoral superintendent of tho railway mail service with headquarters in Chicago." J. W.

We expect orthodox ministers as a rule, if not as a whole, to oppose Sunday opening, and personally wo care nothing as to whether it is openod or nut. If the point is well taken that to open it would be contrary to the statutes of Illinois, ihea all discussion of the question ic a waste of time, as an injunction will settle it, and with It Inrgoly sotlle the success of the fair, as it will make hundreds of thousands of dollars difference in the receipts. It may be worso to walk around the exposition grounds and view.the wonders of every clime than to spend Iho day in Lincoln aud other parks, viewing lessoi wonders, but wo can't sso it. Sunday theaters are sliil worse, and yet most of tho cil- ies-'^lerate them and they usjially draw tho largest crowds of the week.
