last know 'nothing of the attempt made to

most interesting in its details. The fact
that Mr. and Mrs. Palmer are now in New

Their Scheme Xot a Success.
But they were not successful. But one
robbery was committed at the Auditorium
that night. Charles Slack lost a valuable
diamond stud, and remembered being
jostled by an English "gentleman,' who
immediately offered profuse apologies.
WATCHED BY A FRENCH OFFICER.
And Shadowed by Chicago Detective.
Personnel of the Gang.
!' The Chicago authorities were warned hv
an officer of the French police force, and the
names of the rascals sent on ahead, with
full descriptions. The men were "Flash
Fred," "Lord Clendenning," Bertie Martin
("Oof Bird,") and Dr. Sequar. In order to
baffle the thieves as to their principal ob
ject Mrs. Palmer was never out of sight,
or touch, of a couple of detectives from the
time she left home until she returned. Be
sides this the 1 Jill room was watched by a
force of detectives.
Ins tract ions to the Detectives.
The officers were ordered to be ready for

present. Before 10 o'clock Inspector Ross
and Captain Shea both knew that the four
men were in the house, and from that time
on they were closely watched. One officer
was detailed to shadow each of the four
suspects on the elevators from the main
floor to the dining room. The close watch
must have alarmed the thieves, for they
all left for parts unknown before next
The Informal ion Was Reliable.
Chief Inspector -Ross was seen in his pri

night and detailed the conspiracy set up to
rob Mrs. Palmer in full, the points of
which' are given in the foregoing. He was
at first averse to discussing the case be
cause, he said, Mr. and Mrs. Palmer would
object to the notoriety attending its publi

Almost a week before the ball Chief In

received an intimation from a trustworthy
source that the quartette of worthies would
be at the ball. His sources of information
were ample, and he made everv preparation
to receive the gang from abroad. Few who

Chicago, Nov. 1'.. Ben Blanchard, who
at one time cut a rather wide swath in Chi

wanted in Cheyenne, Wyo., where it is al

an office with S. A. Kean & Co., the defunct

Here Blanchard pursued the same course
that he had in Indiana. He bought tracts
of Lied in Kansas and Montana, laid them
off in town lots, and disposed of t hem at
good prices. Rev. Dr. Willing indorsed a
check for $4,200 for him, and subsequently
paid it. President Avery, of the Elgin
Watch com Dan V. and Iter. -T r rv.w,ii
of the South Park avenue church, each lost
several thousand dollars by him. At the
