Mystery of $10,000 Trunk
Looting Solved, Say
LONG SEARCH ENDS
Secret Service of Railroad
Company Weaves Net
FOLLOWING two months of stren
uous labor on the part of a corps
of Southern Pacific detectives, in
volving many sensational clews all<
much mystery In connection with the
disappearance of a trunk declared to
have been looted of $10,000 worth of
Jewelry belonging to the Albert Fink
Jewelry company. In the Broadway
Central building-, Los Angeles, ofllcers
yesterday arrested Albert Fink and his
wife, Julia Fink, on a charge of at
tempting to defraud the Hartford In
surance company by a clever con
Fink and his wife were arraigned In
Justice Summerfleld's court shortly
after their arrest yesterday and wore
released under $5000 bonds each. It Is
claimed by the detectives that Mrs.
Kink admitted she was known as Etta
Bchulti while at the Argonaut hotel,
San Francisco, from which place, It Is
declared, a woman of that name
shipped the trunk to San Jose, where
later it was found rifled except for a
small quantity of Jewelry.
The "SIO,OOO trunk mystery," ns It
ha» come to be known, has for two
months battled the best detectives of
the Southern Pacific company, which
investigated the case with special dili
gence because Informed by its legal
advisers the company would have to
pay the claim of the Fink concern if
the railroad company could not prove
what became of the missing Jewelry.
Trunk Shipped North
The trunk supposed to have con
tained the jewelry was shipped from
J-os Angeles to San Francisco by
Harry Adams, a salesman for the Al
lien Fink company, on December 29
last, the salesman receiving the cus
tomary chock for it; but before bis
departure for San Francisco, It Is said
by the detectives, he returned to the
City from the Arcade depot, and while
in the company of Albert Fink and his
wife, llt Is said, circumstance arose
by which Adams' check was exchanged
for one for a piece of baggage which
Was snipped a short time previously.
Adams disclaims all knowledge of the
change, but admits he knew that the
woman who culled herself Etta.Schults
went to San Francisco shortly before
he did. . i
On hi* nrrlva! Nt San Fmnclsco, ni>
eordltiß- to Adams, ho called at tho sta
tion for his trunk, presented his check
and was riven n suitcase, evidently
shipped from Los Anpelps nnr] checked
by the woman known as Etta Bohults.
Protesting; that It was not liiy bagg-are
;mrl tli.it his check callf[l for a trunk
containing; Jin.nnn worth of Jewelry,
Adams wired to the Fink cnmpnny
and th' N l:>tter put In a claim for the
value of the Jewelry,
Simultaneously the woman known
(it FJtta Schultz Is declared to have
presented Adorns" check, secured the
trunk and later to have shipped It to
San Jose, where It was opened and had
the appearance of having been looted,
although a email quantity of Jewelry
was found In the bottom, which Fink
later said did not represent anything
like the amount of Jewelry he had
given to his salesman, Adams, to carry
in the trunk. •
Detectives practically concede that
JIO.OOO worth of Jewelry may have been
shipped and that Adams toQk charge
of the trunk and shipped It with hon
est Intentions, but they believe his
check was changed by the. woman
while h« was unaware.
At the Hotel Argonaut, San Fran
i i.sco, at which place the .woman
known as Etta Schultz registered after
her arrival from Los Angeles and J-.ist
prior to the arrival of the sales agent
Adams, It was stated that the woman
pretended to be a foreigner, and to
every one but the porter who handled
her trunk she Is said to have spoken
extremely poor "pidgin" English To
the porter, it Is said, she spoke good
Kngllsh, and directed htm ns to the
disposition of the trunk with great
care and precision.
Detectives on Trail
Declining to pay the $5000 demanded
by Fink hi' the railroad company, and
sustained In this attitude by the Hart
ford Insurance company, which re
fused to pay the other $5000 demanded
by Fink, the Southern Pacific began
an Investigation of the affair, and for
two months the actions of Fink and
Ills wife were closely watched, but
every effort to trap them proved un
Monday afternoon, when two of the
employes of the Argonaut hotel. San
Francisco, distruised as book agents,
called at the Fink home and engaged
her In conversation, they had a good
opportunity to determine If she was
the same woman who had registered
at the Argonaut hotel under the name
of Etta Sehultz. They unhesitatingly
reported to Detective Bowles of the
Southern Pacific detective agency, who
has charge of the case, that she is tha
same woman, and with this positive
Identification Detective "W. M. Free
man of the Southern Pacific company
swore to'the complaints on which the
couple were arrested.
Tt is claimed by the detectives that
nfter their arrest Mrs. Fink was con
fronted with evidence of her guilt, and '
Hint she broke down and confessed
she was Etta Sehultz, which latter was
her maiden name.
Fink is said to be wealthy, and up
to the time of his arrest was doing a
flourishing wholesale jewelry business,
It is said, and was popular about town.
. His ■ wife. also, is wel known In'T.#os
Angeles and San Francisco.
. Fink's attorneys, declared last night
that their client is Innocent and that
he Is the victim instead of the offender,

A stone thrown by one In a crowd

Infuriated at this, fifteen >>f his com

Factories May Close
Announcement that plants represent
ing 75 per cent of the hosiery manu
factories of Philadelphia would close
down until next Monday was the most
Important development In the strike
The announcement was coupled with
the intimation that if the employes In
the hosiery plants did not return to
work by that time the mills might re
main closed down until fall.
One of the manufacturers said the
Hosiery association represented mills
employing 20,000 hands. Many of them
were reported to have gone out on the
tlrst day of the general strike.
While accessions to the strikers'
ranks were reported today from the
manufacturing plants, includes a few
nun frcm the Baldwin locomotive
works, there %vero many reports of
strikers returning to their old plants.
Manufacturers declared that many
union men were disappointed over the
failure of the general strike to force
the Rapid Transit company to arbi
trate. Union leaders denied that there
were any defections.
('. O. Pratt, the carmen's leader, ad
dressed a crowd of several hundred at
a meeting of the Allied Jewish Trades,
urging the men to stand fast in a win
ning cause. He declared that If an
outdoor demonstration was permitted
It would assume proportions that would
surprise the country.
The report from Cincinnati that the
local brewery workers might be ordered
out has apparently been discounted by
the local brewing interests. The Phil
adelphia Brewers' association issued a
statement In which confidence was ex
pressed that the men would stick to
"In view of the good will and har
mony that have existed so many years
between employer and employe no vio
lation of the existing contract is looked

One Interesting development today
was the appeal by officials of the Phil
adelphia National league baseball club
to the strlko leaders. The baseball in
toreats asked that the union men who
have been working on the ball park
improvements be permitted to continue
and complete the work. Unless the
work is lini.slied by April 16, the open-
Ing of the season, the baseball men say
the club will be badly handicapped.
The labor leaders promised to place
the matter before the full committee.

TAKES CHARGE OF REPUBLIC

United States Senator Advises State
Officials on Choice of Succes
sor to Allds —Hughes
ALBANY, N. V., March B.— United
States Senator Elihu Root, presumably
reflecting the wishes of President Talt.
has taken active charge of the critical
situation in the Republican party in
New York state.
Tonight, on the eve of a conference
of Republican senators, called to elect
a temporary president of the senate,
to succeed Senator Jotham P. AlMs,
who is charged by Senator Conger with
accepting bribes, Senator Root sent
a telegram to State Senator Frederick
M. Davenport, advocating the candi
dacy of Senator Haivey D. Hinman of
Blnghamton, a staunch supporter of
the policies of Governor Hughes, as
against Senator George A. Davis of
Buffalo, and Senator George H. Cobb
of Watertown, both regarded as op
posed to Governor Hughes' policies.
The governor has given no public
expression of opinion on tne question
of Leadership, but Is known to have
favored the election of Senator Hin
man. He expressed satisfaction to
night at Senator Root's action.
The telegram fell like a bombshell
In the Cobb and Davis camps.
Senator Hinman was one of the
seven so-called Insurgent senators
who rafued to sanction the election
of Senator Allds as president pro tern.
Senator Root's telegram read, in
part, as follows:
"The selection of Senator Hinman
is plainly indicated as the only course
which will present the Republican par
ty to the people of the state in a true
light, will correctly exhibit the real
relation of the party as a whole to
the principles and policies for which
Governor Hushes stands and will
rightly represent the wishes of the
voters of the party."

John Rohlman, who oonducts a
