At that time the excitement of the
Northampton robbery having nub td
down, the police of Hrooklyn and Man
hattan were being troubled by a -erics
of daring robberies. Safes were blown
open as If they were dry goods boxes
and some of the leading merchants in
both cities had suffered.
Murphy follow ed the pair to the cot
tage and then got permission to watch
the houso from the window of an Episco
pal church across the stieet. At t A. M.
Murphy saw four men enter the house.
At about 6 o'clock a man came out In his
Wrteleeves, looked up and down the
treat and spoke to some one Inside, Then
two men CRmn out and started away.
Murphy followed the men and arrchted
one of them. The otln r ran.
Murphy telephoned to the station house
to have tho cottage surrounded and re
turned to the house himself. Murphy went

Apparently the only reason that

l-'iii rlers and dealers In heavy garments
said last nlcht that tho warm weather
was largely responsible for the lack ir
business In these lines. Henri Hetidel,
millinery and fur dealer at 10 West Fifty
seventh street, said that although his
business In costly furs had Wen excep
tionally good this fall there had been a
falling off In the medium price fur trade.
Tho reusoti for this, hn pointed out, is tnat
women who can afford to pay the highest
prices for furs wear them when fashion
dictates whether It Is cold or not. On the
other hand those who do not pay more
than from fSOfi to $r.00 for a garmcut
usually wait for cold weather to mak
their purchases. Tho dealers who handle
only tho cheap and medium priced furs,
he said, have been hit hard.
Walter Jaeckel of 11. Juockel A. Hons,
16 West Thirty-second street, said that
his firm was doing the usual retail busi
ness In fur goods but that tho wholesale
business, which Is u large part of the
llrm'H tiade, Is very unsatisfactory. On
account of the warm weather the ilcaleri
have not rut In their usual winter stocks,
he said.
J. Kramer of the Kramer Kur Company.
13 Kast Sixteenth street, said that his
tlrm was not affected greatiy by the warm
weather because It does business all over
the fultiil Slates and does not depend on
New York city alone for Its trade. In New
York, he said, Ills firm was doing a greater
volume of business than last year, but th
goods ate sold on a cloer margin.
"We lind that people will not buy cheap
furs at nil any more," ho said. "Hut on
account of the warm weather tills fall
they arc able to get good furs at more.
liberal concessions than Heretofore, imi
consequently the volume of business re
mains as large. We find that many cus
tomers ate having old furs remodelled In

this Is mi account of the general business,

A repes( titatlve of Hrlll Pros., men's
