The Rock Island office of the Mueller
Lumber company was feroken into and
burglarized last night. This morning
Manager Oscar J. Ohlweiler and his
assistants made the discovery upon ar
riving there for the day's work. A
scene of confusion met their gaze, the
office being in great disorder. A hur

HAD PLANNED THE JOB.
Everything points to the fact that
the robbers had planned the job quite
carefully and had made every allow
ance except for the fact that the re
ceipts of each day were locked up in
the big safe at night. All the electric
lights in the yards near the office had
been put out of commission nearly a
week ago, it being thought at the time
that it was the work of mischievous
boys but now it is thought that it was
a part of the plot.
