tho second section of tho act of February

In excess of appropriations may bo nppllcd
by tho Commissioners to pay tho ntnuunts

THE WORK OF A GANG.
N. W, Ilurchcll's cxtcnslvo grocery and
provision establishment on F street seemed
(oeombro and quiet and lifeless between
Its closing ou Saturday night and reopening
this morning that thcro was nothing to
arouso tho suspicions of neighbors or passers-by
to tlio fact that bold burglcis were
feasting and holding high carnival within
Its walls and pausing nmld their lovelryto
rlllo Its "burglar-proof" safe.
Tho clerk who opened tho storo this morn
ing was tho first person to discover tlio In
dications of nu unexpected visit and tho
evidences of a successful and skillful pro
fessional safe-burglary. The safe stands lu
tho rear portion of the storo against tho
west wall, and hidden by tho ralllug around
the desk nt which tho books aro kept and
Iho clerical work performed. A hasty sur
vey of tho establishment revealed tho fact
mat uurgi.ars nail cllcctcil an cntranco to
n rear building through a second story
w ludovr, tin nco to tho basement of Burchcll's
store, forcing tho lock of tho cellar door,
nnd thenco Into tlio storo Itself by cutting a
liolo through plaster and lathing and brick
work of Buniciculdluicnslonsto allow them
to enter. Oneo In tho 6tore, tho bold depre
dators seemed to find tho attractions of tho
safe, tho cigar boxes and thowlno cases
about equally great, and to luvo mixed
their festivities wllh very cffcctlvcand skill
ful work on tho treasure-box.
Tho nickel-plated mcchaiilsm by which
tho combination Is operated wasovldently
Iho first point of attack, nnd this was
knocked off without ntlordlng moans ot
getting- closer to tho safe's contents. Tho
knob by which tho safe door opens w as tho
next object of attack, and this was also re
moved. Still tho safo was ns securely closed
as ever, aud the next movo appears to havo
been to pry tho door open with chisels and
other tools Tholattcrefforts were success
ful. Iho safo door this morning was shat
tered aud bent nud broken, as though tlio
safo had been blown open, but thcro were
no indications of a tuso and no marks ot
stnoko or oilier signs of an explosion Too
Contents of the safe wcro pulled from their
places and tossed over, aud the cash and
somo other in ticks taken Iho burghis
prcsumabl) departed as they came, carrying
wines and cigars and Billables with them
"My loss Is uot great," said Mr. lliireholl
this monilus. "I donotjet know exactly
what was taken from the safe, but the de
struction of the safo Itself is probably tho
most serious Item. I had been wai nod of
tho presence of professional burglars lu tho
city nnd taken extra preciutlons up to Sat
utday night, but thought It unnecessary to
conttnuo them longer. Tho burglars evi
dently had a fcstlvo tlmo and worked do
llbcratel). 'Hie) may have been hero all day
Sunday and all last night."
Tho pollco and detectives wcio notified ot
the burglary early this morning and went to
w ork at onco on tho cato. Tho only Indica
tion ns to when tho burirlary was com
mitted Is found In tho statement of somo ot
tho neighbors that unusual noises wcro
heard about 3 o'clock this morning, but
wcro attributed to tho w Ind and storm.

Tho ui)sterlous assassination of ex-Ma)or
John II. Bow mau of East St. Louis, 111., Is a
topic of general aud sensational Interest ou
account of tho promlnenco of tho deceased,
Loth as a politician aud a man Identified
with some of tho laigcst corporations of tho
country. In tho accounts so far published
no allusion Is mado to tho fact that Just
after Bowman lied Baden, his natlvo couu
try, and took up his resldcnco In Loudon,
ho wns mado tho sicrctary of tho Inter
nationalists, an organization that was com
posed of the leading Socialists that wcro
compelled to leavo tho German provinces,
France, and other countries of Europo In
which levoliillons wcro tho order of tbo

being n man of powerful ablllt), ho becamo
prominent among such men ns ltccker und
others who wcro conspicuous lu tho Germ in

Mo. Els real uamo was "Baumau," but
his commission was mado out "Bowman."
It may be that ho purposely had his namo
chanced, ou nccount of having been so
pioinlnenily connected with the revolution
in Ids natlvo land, and subsequently tho
secretin v of tho lutcriiiitlouallsU who made
hcadquaiters at London.
In call) life It will bo seen that How man
was tiio champion of socialism, and tlio
avowed friend and advocato of labor. In a

His socialistic tendencies seem to havo

Heavy icnards havo been offeied for the
