Seventeen Watches Stolen From
DARING DAYLIGHT ROBBERY
Xot Discovered Until Lona: Afterward.
"Vhsuo Clows to the Thief Police
on the Lookout For ti "White- Man
"Who Had Been Exuniinlns a "Watch
and a Xero Seen Xeitr the Store.
The jewelry store or E Rickenbacher,
at No. 1213 G street northwest, was robbed
in broad daylight yesterday of seventeen
gold watches, valued at over SG00.
Tho robbery, which is one of the boldest
and most daring perpetrated in this cily
rccently, occurred shortly after llo'clock
yesterday forenoon, while the proprietor
was in a little room in the rear ot the shop.
The last customer Mr. Hickeubacker
waited on berore the robbery was an elderly
white man. who entered and asked to be
shown a watch.
He selected one worth $G5 and said that
he would return and purchase it on the 18th
Instant. Mr. Rickenbacher replaced tho
watch in the case, shut the door, and went
in the back room.
DOOR OF THE CASE DOWN
His ice man entered the house just then
with a bill and the jeweler re-entered the
store to get the money to pay him.
On going behind the counter he noticed
that the door of the show ea.be was banging
down, and without looking in the case ho
closed it and returned to the back room
with the money.
He paid the iceman and fti a few minutes
returned to the store again.
Then he noticed that the front door was
open about two feet, and he went to tho
rront of the store and closed it. On trail
ing around his eyes fell on the sliow case
and the empty watch tray met his view.
He could hardly believe for a moment that
his eyes were not deceiving him, but another
inspectionshowedthatthe seventeen watches
with which the tray was filled, were miss
ing. A hasty inspection of the contents of the
show case disclosed the fact that nothing
else had been molested, and Mr. Rickcn
bacher at once notified the police.
CLEWS TO THE THIEF.
The white man, who examined tho watch
Just before the discovery was made was
described to tho police by the jeweler as
being about five feet eight inches high, ot
stout build, about forty-five or fifty years
old, rosy face, heavy blond mustache, gold
spectacles, brown hair, light suit of clothes
and a straw hat.
It was afterwards discovered that a negro
was seen coining from the store about the
tirao it was robbed, and as the proprietoi
had waited on none during the day the
police arrived at the conclusion that he was
the man who secured the watches. .
A good description of him was furnished to
all tho precincts and they were ordered to
look out for him, while Detectives Lacey,
Weedon and Home and Precinct Detective
Helan, with Pollcoman Flather, of the First
precinct, were scouring the city last night.

Capt. Toakley, who is captain of the
watch at the Post-office Department,
was occupying a room in the house during
the absence of Mr. Springer's family.
The thieves lighted matches in the various
rooms, opened bureau drawers, and all so
quietly that the occupants were undisturbed.
One of the thieves stopped in the front
yard long enough to exchange his old
shoes for the new ones stolen from the
house, and, after throwing away the
suit of heavy underwear, evidently de
ciding that It was too thick for hot
weather, they skipped out, and have not
been heard from since.
