o'clock Sunday morning.
Th marshal's attention was at
traded toward the poet ollice by an
unusual noixe and walking to the
Paddock corner, he nbrved a man
standing opposite the side entrance
to the jKHtt ollice lobby on C street.
The man stuped toward the door,
the lobby light whs turned out and
Mr. Hull banged away. Two men
emerged from the building , as the
marshal's fire was returned and aa
they turned down C. street toward
the river the marshal - fired another
shot. , In their departure, the men
kept close to the building says Mr.
Ball, so as to avoid the electric
light near the end of the bridge.
In the poMt oflice lobby were lei t
a sledge hammer, hand hammer,
and a cold chisel. These had been
taken from tV-e blacksmith shop of
Millard Bros. A window broken
out and the side door shoved slight

to open the door from the inside

be of incalculable value to the

present and the secretary was au
thorized to ascertain ' what the
League might do toward the se
curing of it.
