The Depot llobbery.
The railroad depot at this place
was burglarized last Sunday night,
the safe being blown open and rob
bed of something near one hundred
hundred dollars in cash, about $80 in
checks, and two packages containing
watches. The carpenter shop of W.
S. Lively & Co., was robbed of n lot
tools which were used in making an
entrance into the depot and the safe,
the tools were left in the depot. The
burglars started to drill a hole in the
safe door, but abandoned that, broke
into the tool house near the depot
and procured a large sledge hammer
with which they broke the handle
from the safe door. This left a hole
through the outer plate into which
powder was placed and exploded.
As this front plate was blown off it
brought the bolts with it. The bur
glars placed a large book in front of
the safe for the door to fall upon.
Altogether it was a very neatly exe
ted job, and evidently the work of
an expert. But it is also apparent
that he had local assistance, as all
circumstances show that some one
was engaged in it who was familiar
with the surroundings There is little
doubt that the same individual or
gang who made an unsuccessful at
tempt to burglarize the safe in the
Manchester depot about a month ago,
also manipulated this job.
A reward of $W50 has been offered
by the railroad and express compa
nies for the arrest and, conviction of
