The night prowlers who made the suc
cessful haul at Sieb's saloon yesterday
mornlnsj. were foiled tn an attempt to
make a similar raid at Holdorf's saloon
on Ninth street at an early hour this
morning. About that time Sirs. II.ld.-rf
was awakened bv a noi.-e in the Louse
and calling out to her husband and ask
ing if he was up. heard some one hurry
ing out of the room and on
of the saloon, whi h adjoins. Mr.
HolJorf was aroused and found
the house open and heard
buggy drive rapidly rfl. lie found tbe
premises ransacked, a drawer, in which
he sometimes kept money, pulled out
but he had deposited his money elsewhere,
and tbe burglars t nothing. During
the afternoon two strangers called at the
saloon and arked for a drink, giving in
return a bill. Mr. Holdorf went
back to a drawer where be kept his bills.
etc, to break it, when one of the men
fished out a ten cent piece aod handed
him, saying that be had change after all
As it was the same drawer that was palled
open this morning. Mr. Holdorf thinks
the men were getting the lay of the land
in the afternoon.
