WACHHORST DIAMOND ROBBERY.
How Detective Pinkerton Learned Who !
the Robbers Were.
Frank SherclilT Dolne a Term In lowa
—Edwards in Folsom Prison, and
Black is Here.
The Record-Unton announced on Sat
urday morning the arrest in San Fran
cisco on the preceding day of Horace
Black, alias Powers, one of the men sus
pected of having been engaged in the
"Wachhorst jewelry robbery in this city
one year ago on the 31st of January.
W. H. Edwards, a man who is now
serving a term in the FBlsom l'rison for
a diamond robbery in San Francisco
some months ago, is another of the sus
pects. A third, named Frank Shercliff,
is serving a seventeen years' term in the
lowa Penitentiary for robbing a jewelry
salesman on a railroad train.
Black was arrested with Edwards for
the San Francisco robbery, but managed
to escape conviction.
Suspicion was directed to these men by
Detective Pinkerton in connection with
the Wachhorst robbery, and he wrote to
Chief Crowley and Captain Lees to that
effect after he had learned of SherclifFs
participation in the job.
PINKERTON WANTS IN FORMATION.
Shercliff is not without backing, and
In order to prevent him from obtaining a
new trial Pinkerton wrote to Chief
Kodgers last October for information con
cerning the Wachhorst robbery, he hav
ing learned tbat Shercliff was engaged in
that job. Following is his letter :
Chicago, October IK, 1893.
Chief of Police, Sacramento, CaL—
Dear Sir:—inclosed I send you picture
of a man recently convicted by this
agency who gives the name of Frank
Shercliff, alias Jas. Burke, alias "Kid"
McCoy, alias Ed. Wilson. He was >en
tenced to seventeen years in the lowa
Penitentiary on a charge of assaulting
and robbing a jewelry salesman named
W. G. Pollock, of New York City, on a
passenger train on the C. A N. W. li. R.
.November Ith last. He calls himself __
years of age, but is in reality about 28,
but being lair and light-complexioned
does not show his age.
I first heard of him in ISS6 at Aurora,
Illinois, where bo sneaked a sate in a
lumber oilice. On being caught lie made
a desperate resistance and tried to kill tbe
officers who took him iuto custody, lie
did not succeed, however, and was sen
tenced to two years iv the Joliet Peniten
tiary, by Judge Wilson oi* the Circuit
Court, getting oil" with a light sentence
on account oi his youthful appearame.
He afterward went West and held up a
faro bank iv Colorado City, Col., then
went to Salt Lake, Utah, where be held
up and robbed a couple oi* women of a
lot of diauiouds but escaped capture.
After sneaking a safe in < >gdeu, Utah, he
was sentenced and served ouo year in the
"Utah Penitentiary in Salt Lake City.
Ud coming out of the penitentiary he
committed the i'oliock diamond robbery,
above spoken of, and sinco then has been
in your city and smashed a light of glass
in a jewelry store window in Sacramento
and succeeded in getting away with a lot
of diamonds. This is within the last ten
months. The next heard of him was his
holding up and robbing the faro bank of
Maloue & Sawyer at Tacoma, Wash.
Will you kindly write me the particu
lars of the diamond robbery in your city
aud tho date on which it was committed.
This tellow is backed by a big gang of
"Western crooks and is making strenuous
eilorts to get a now trial, but 1 intend to
have his history complete when a new
trial is called for.
You may keep this picture for use of
your gallery. Yours truly,
W. A. PINKEKTOX.
THE RIGHT MAN.
Chief Rodgers sent to Pinkerton the
desired information, and received from
him another letter, in which he said:
Chicago, November 4, 1593.
John B. Rodgers, Chief of Police, Sacra
mento, CaL— Dear Sik: I am in receipt
of your favor of the 27th ult., in reference
to the picture of James Durke, alias
Frank Shercliff, alias "Kid" McCoy, etc.
There is no doubt whatever ho is the
man who committed the diamond rob
bery in your city—1 know that positively
—and also the other robberies which have
been accredited to him. As he is in the
penitentiary, however, for tbe next sev
enteen years to come, unless bo makes
his escape there is no danger of his rob
bing anybody else of diamonds. Un
doubtedly the goods stolen in your city
were disposed of as all other goods takeu
by him have been—turned over to his
gambler friend in a Western city. This
man has always been behind this fellow
in the work he has done.
If I can serve you at auy time I shall be
most happy to do so.
I don't know whether I wrote you or
not. but I have found that this man
Sherciilf served a two years' sentence in
the Joliet Penitentiary under the name of
John Cummings, from Aurora, 111., ia
1886, for robbing a safe in that city. Yours
truly, W. A. PINKERTON.
AN ORGANIZED <;.\.\(i.
On the following day Pinkerton wrote
again to Chief Rodgers, as follows :
Chicago, November 5, 1893.
J. B. Rodgers, Esq*, Chief of Police.
Sacramento, OoL—Dbab Sin: I am in
receipt of yours of the Ist inst., inclosing
a postal card describing the jewelry stolen
by ShercliU from 11. Wachhorst. I see
no prospect of my being able to recover
any of this jewelry at the present time,
as we have not succeeded in recovering
the jewelry which was stolen by ShercliU
on the case which we convicted him on.
This man is in colleague with a danger
ous gaug of thieves who have their haunts
all through the West.
I have not quit searching in the mat
ter, and am very glad to get the informa
tion contained in your letter, and should
I hear anything of the jewelry, you can
depend upon it I will communicate with
Kindly show this picture at your hotels
and other places, particularly gambling
bouses, and you will be apt to get souie
clew to him in some gambling house in
your city, as he is an inveterate gambler.
I may be in California iv the next
thirty days, and will certainly look you
up. Yours, truly,
W. A. Pinkerton.

Edwards, but he refused to talk on the
subject of the Wachhorst robbery. Au

Black was in the city at the time of the
Wachhorst robbery, having secured

Ills Statement Concerning tho Recent
Theft ot Jewelry.
W. B. Tilghman, one of the men ar
rested on Eriday evoning on suspicion of
having stolen a box of jewelry from the
residence of C. H. Miller, and who was
afterward discharged, writes as follows
concerning the matter:
Eds. Record-Union: Kindly allow me
through the medium of your valuable
paper to rectify an error in this morn
iug's issue. The article in question,
"Mrs. C. H. Miller's Lost Jewelry—A
Peddler Arrested on Suspicion."
1 beg to inform you that I came to this
coast December 15th last to represent
Charles M. Rosenthal & Co., general
agents for German and Austrian firms at
the Midwinter Exposition, but upon my
arrival here was notified that the firms
would not exhibit, owing to the exorbi
tant* rates charged. As I was thrown out
of employment I applied to many firms
in San Francisco for a position, but with
out success, aud having an invalid wife
and baby to care for I determined to start
■•on the road" soliciting orders lor geu
cral novelties and souvcuirs of the expo
Last evening about 0 o'clock 1 was ar
rested and cast into a damp, dark duu
! geon full of vermin in tho City Prison, on
i no charge whatever, and alter enduring a
! night ol torture, surrounded \>y drunk
j aids, prostitutes aud opium fiends, I was
I told to take my departure.
I immediately repaired to the worthy
j unfortunate's house, at 1019 E street, and
j interviewed the Mrs. Miller. It is uossi
i ble that 1 may have called there, as she
| states, on Wednesday, and that she may
have possessed the articles iv question,
i but it is extremely doubtful. I have
! never been employed in any railway
I shop, nor am 1 a mechanic, nor have I
' ever represented myself as such, or made
any statements as referred to in your
issue of to-day.
If a person is not entitled to pursue his
daily vocation or gain au honest liveli
hood without being cast into prison with
out one iota of evidence, it is no wonder
crimes are so frequent.
