that the Hennepin is to be pushed

Chief Nexton Finds More Stolen Pronerty
In the Rlspen Home.
Having learned last evening that
the overcoats recovered by him at
the , Rispen home, on Twenty-lirst
street, on the strength of the search
warren t provided by Charles It. Mc
Cord yesterday morning, were the
property of the M. & K. clothing
establishment, and were stolen from
it on the night of the fire in that
establishment Jan. '29. last, the chief
made another visit to the Rispen
domicle this morning. This time he
was accompanied by l'li Mosenfelder,
the object being to make a more
thorough search of the house
in hopes of finding more
stolen property. In this they were
abundantly successful, (hiding not
onlv another overcoat of the descrip
tion recovered vesterdav. but some
cardboards for jewclrv also taken
from M. K.. while the jewelry was
found in various parts of the house
in the seats of chairs, in vases, etc
while in t he beds and in di vers places,
where least apt to attract suspicion,
were found other articles which un
doubtedlv have been stolen. There
were 1" packages of gold leaf and
nrone leaf, bottles and packages of
patent medicines, porous plasters,
several rolls of leather straps, a kesr
of white lead, some carpenters'
tools, a day book evidently the prop
erty of John Warner which carries
accounts as far back as lSSoil. anil in
which the names of Peter Fries and
Henry Dart's Sons appear. The
chief and Mr. Mosenfelder found a
secret hiding place on the second
floor where were concealed bottles,
etc. They found bottles between the
lloor sand in the cellar, and in every
conceivable place. The stuff was ta
ken to police headquarters w hile Mrs.
Sarah ltispen and her son George,
the onlv ones in the house at the
time, were arrested and taken to the
SOKiilliraiire of the Iiseovery
The disceovery is significant in
more ways than one. The overcoat
and the jewelry have been identified
as belonging to M. iV K. The coats
were purchased on Jan. 11 last, and
the last time Mr. Mosenfelder saw
them was Jan. I'll, on the night
of which day the store of M. A: K.
was damaged by lire, ami most of the
clot Inn;; and shoe stock destroyed or
ruined. The fact that the coats bear
no evidence of having been damaged
has led 1. 1 the helicf that Jack alias
Dwid" ltispen had something to d
w it h t he burglary of the store that
night, and lie wii! also be accused of
the crime of arson, after having com
mitted t he robbery.
The medicines, bronze, paint, etc..
were identified this morning by K. (.'.
Fui'.erton. of the Harper house phar
macy, but when taken is tin
know n. Nor is it know n yet when
or from where the other propertv
found in the house was stolen, al
though this publication may lead to
revelations in this line.
Chief Sexton has a good clew to
Jack Itispen's present location and
unless he is deceived will land h im
hen-" in a short time. His arrest
may lead to the unearthing of valua
ble evidence concerning other bur
glaries committed in ltock Island in
the last few mont lis.
Mrs. ltispen and her son George,
are having a preliminary hearing at
police headquarters this afternoon.
State's Attorney Seat le appearing for
the prosecution and William Mc
Kniry for the defense. They both
swear they know nothing of the
stolen property. George testifying
that a box was brought to the house
by his brother Jack last winter, but
he knew nothing of the contents.
He says his brother gave him an
overcoat, one of the stolen ones, tell
ing him it was too small for him and
he wore it the rest of the winter,
never dreaming it was stolen, or .he
would not have worn it publicly as
There were six coats in the lot ta
ken at the time. The last was found
at Jones" second hand store by Chief
Sexton and Capt. Kramer this after
noon. It was pawned last spring by a
young man now confined in the coun
ty jail and who got it from Rispen.
On the evidence in the case. Mrs:
Rispen was held in .VM bonds and
George in -Sdn, to appear before the
ci reuit court.
William Hullin. a bicycle thief. was
held in :00 bonds.

nue, and this morning informed Of
ficer Ktel of the fact. The officer

and promptly told him that his shoes
j were at the county jail. Mr. Schnei
; der went dow n and found the shoes
and identified them; they had been
stolen by John Muryhy the man ar
rested for stealing a pair of shoes
from M. & K. He was wearing
