author of tho "Jim Cummings" letters,
and is claimed to he the man who per
petrated tko robbery; \V. NV. Elaight, au
ox-employee of Kxpress Company, who
is supposed to have nideil in planning
thc robbery from his knowledge of thc
railroad "run;" Thomas Weaver, a
Chicago laundrymau, who was with
Witrock before aud alter tho robbery.
I'.dwan! Kinney, a brother-in-law of
Witrock upon whose body was found a
considerable portion ol tho express
inonoy, and Oscar Cook, who hid Wil
lock after the robbery, mid divided the
mou ey anti mailed the "Jim Cummings"
bdters. The detectives have turned up
about $15,1)00 and estimate that from
^4(),iHiii to $15,00 is still unaccounted for.
ll ho detectives hit OD no clue to tho
robbers until tho *'.lhu Cummings" let
ter was addressed to the St, Louis Globe
Democrat, ami upon this they detected
the criminals. I1 irai tiley started to thiel
all the people who had loft the Bervici

been discharged for theft and who hail

Tho noxt Stop was tho discovery thal
W itrock and Weaver left this city on
October 12, woll armed and equipped
for hunting, which they said was their
object in Arkansas, whither they were
going. Weaver returned to Chicago
October 22, mid alter the robbery oc
curred tho Cummings loth rto tito ( llobc
Ocmocrat was received and stated that
he hod gone to a point ?rn the Missouri
river, opposite Labadie and tloatid
down in II skill. At St. Churl) s the de
tectives lound that tho two men answer
ing tho description of Witrock and
Weaver hud bought n skill' on Octobei
J I, but had goue up tho river.
CHINO THU MICROS! uri:,
From this point thc M an li reverted to
the bundle which ".Jim Cummings" said
in his letter be had lett at the I nion
Depot, St. Louis, und in it were discov
ered some printed ballads, ou one of
w.is ihe address 'Jills Chestnut
street, but so taint as to be only dis
cernible under tho microscope. Thin
was a boarding house in St. Louis kept
by "Mrs. Perry, who remembered that
tuen resembling Witrock and Wcnvei
had como to her house on October ls,
and Weaver left on October J'J, saying
be wu? going to Kansas City, Witrock
ostousibly following him on tho evening
ol' Ootober 25.
lu the rooms tho two men bad occu
pied were found two stumps correspond
ing to the labels on two valises shipped
to St. Louis from St. Charles, w hich
proved to be tho baggago of thu men
who bad procured tho skill' at St.
Charles. Then a watch was .set over
Witrock and Weaver's pinces in Chicago,
aud live weeks ago a daughter and son
O? Mrs. Perry cann- to Chicago identified
Weaver as one of tho men who had
roomed ut their house. Oscar Cook, n
close friend of Witrock, was found to
have gone to Kansas City, whore he
lived nt the bouse of a woman named
Cox, but frequently left thc city, his ab
sence being invariably followed by the
appearance of ono of tho "Jim Cum
mings" letters. A detective ingratiated
himself with Cook and accompanied him
to gambling houses in thc guise of a
friend, Cook always having plenty of
money. The lookout for W itrock was
kept up iii Chicago without avail until
last TacFday night, when anothoi
"shadow," whom tito detectives did not
know, .md a large mau looking like
Witrock entered Witrock s residence,
No. 10 Lincoln street. Kinney was run
ning tho coal yard for bim, and having
gone to Quincj a detective maun ged to
sec there a tolograw to Kinney announc
ing the return of Witrock to Chicago,
and signed by the latter's wile, Kose.

Now that cheap labor is id tract lug gen

"The negroes work on thc salt-pans, nu n
