Whether he went by steamer across the
lake or by rail is not yet known. Thu fcto
ry of the recovery of the swan Is given by
tlie-detective as follows: A valise was left
ut the trunk store of C'urpcles, Schrani &
Co., Ka-t Water street, by an unknown
man, yesterday afternoon, with orders
that it be .hipp'il to him nt Detroit in a

The packages in the valise were found to

on the case, an accurate description of
the man who left the valise beiiifr given
them, but up to this time no arrest has
been made. The description given by
the description sent out by the St. Louis
officials, leaving 110 doubt but that the
man who left the valise at the store was
Trent ice Tiller. The most plausible
theory as to what became of Tiller
after" leaving the valise, was that he
took passant.- mi the propeller Wiscon
sin, which left here last night for Grand
Haven, from th re to go by rail to De
troit, where he would await the arrival of
the trunk and then cross over the river
Into Canada. Chas. J. Jetter, the
sai.ksma.v who mam: the mslovkuv,
..s asked :
"How was the discovery made?''
"That I do not care to tell at present."
"Was the money found in the valise
counted by vou, and how much was
"We did not count all the money, but I
think there Is between SSlVX"iuaud .s'.iO.unn
iu that valise."
"Was there anything else iu the valise
"Yes, there" was a large amount of valuable-
"What was the appearance of the man
who left the valise?"
"He looked something like a tramp, lie
was a young man with small mustache,
brown hair and slender build, unobtru
sive features and weighed about 1U3
The above description corresponds with
that of the absconder.
The latest reward offered by the Ex
press Company is 85,000 tor the arrest of
Tiiler, and ten per cent, of all the money
found, so that those making the discov
ery are entitled to between S,000 and
I.OC A I. 1)E V i: l.O PM K X T S .
Only a few days ago one of the clerks
employed in the Pacillc Express (Hlice
began to scratch his head over the Tiiler
affair, and he had not scratched it very
long before he succeeded in scratching
out an idea. The fact that he had re
ceipted for a telegram addressed to the
embezzler, while that person was out to
dinner, early in the week previous to the
Sunday upou which the robbery was com
mitted (lashed across his mind, and in
spired with the belief that this telegram
had some connection with Tiller's theft,
he communicated his knowledge and be
lief to the officers of the company. Now,
Mr. Jay Gould not only controls the
North-western railroad system and the
l'acillc Kxpress Company, but he also
controls the Western Union Telegraph
Company, it was an easy matter there
fore for "the meu w ho were trying to find
Mr. Tiller to gtt access to the" tiles of
messages sent and received in the Western
Union office. Every message received is
copied and the original of every message
sent is preserved. They are tiled away
daily, and a message sent or received last
week or last mouth can readily be found.
The l'acillc Kxpress officers and their as
distant ut once went to work on these
tiles. The clerk who receipted for the
message was able to tell them tin) date
upon which tlio telegram was received.
A few hours' work resulted in the dis
covery of thu dispatch. It was

Some of those engaged in the search
became excited over this discovery, nud
were lu favor of telegraphing to Sherman
at once ordering McFaddeu's arrest, but
hu old and experienced detective advised
them to make haste slowly iu this matter.
'There are some other messages," said
lie. "This must bo a reply to one that
Tiller sent." So the files for two months
back were overhauled, and Mr. Tiller's
telegram to McFuddcn was found. It

he and Tiller met and were together here
on the nlidit of that day, and on the Sat
urday night following. It was believed,
1!h re fore, that he was the man who car
ried away tie- vadse before Tiller went
out to take h:.( lunch. The theory upon

and Tiilt r h id made their way into Mex

that he would have nothing whatever
to say about Tiller or the i-mbczzicmcut.

been ;uiised by a lawyer to keep his
niotiih shut, and that was what he
proposed to do.
A requisition will be procured from
Governor Crittenden to-day; thu Gov
ernor of Texas will undoubtedly grant
it, and it is expected that McKadden
will arrive here Sunday or Monday.
ANOTlIUlt ( llt'M,
The officers of the Express Company
are not certain that the boarder Herbert
(Tiller's old chum) nud McKadden aie
one and the same person, but It looks
that way. It is known tint the date of
-MeK.idden's departure from this city
corresponds almost exactly with that
of Herbert's. (ue of th.; odicers said
to-day that there were three men con
nected witli the robbery besides Tiller
the man known us Herbert, another
known as O'Neill and McEudd 'ii.
On March i'd a warrant was issued
by Assistant Prosecuting Attorney
Dierkes, charging George McKadden,
the man arrested in Sherman yester
day, with stealing $70,000 from. the I'.i
cnic Express Company. Ihtective Tracy
has been furnished with n picture of
McKadden. He is about three inches
talb r. and bears no resemblance what
ever to tho man Herbert who roomed
with Till, r at the Kreddeke residence.
The police evidently tliink that MeKud
ilctt and Lyttoti McKellops were ac
quainted wi , it e;,eh other. Chief Ilarrl-g-iti
as-erts that there is no doubt of Mel-add-,

The Arabs were soon compelled to retire

COULDN'T KNDL'IU: THE 1DF.A
Of Beini? Arrested Himself, Although
Not Slow to Arrest Others.
Chicago, III., March 13. Joseph Po
lieka, a Bohemian, forty-two years old,
and proprietor of a small dry-goods
store at No. 721 Milwaukee avenue, shot
himself through the brain this morn
ing at ubout seven o'clock, In his
bed-chamber over the store. He was
laboring under the fear that he was about
to be arrested for false imprisonment iu
having caused the arrest of a girl
named Annie Lupsky ou the
charge of stealing from his place
two worsted jackets and four
pairs of kid gloves. An investigation was
held by Deputy Coroner McLaughlin, at
which the wife of the suicide testilled
that two weeks ago he charged Miss
Lupsky with the theft of the ar
ticles above mentioned, and a search
warrant was sworn out, but the offi
cer who served it reported that he 0 u'd
not tt in I the missing articles, although the
girl had acknowledged that they were at
her house. That worried l'olicka, but he
said nothing tJ his wifoubout the matter,
und she had 110 idea that he was about to
kill himself until sib! heard the fatal
shot, and running Into the sleeping
