MANCHKSTKll. N. J., April 23.-Mrs.
II. A. Decker, accomplice of the hotel
thief who was arrested a few days ngo
In Florida, while on his way North,
loaded with plunder, by Detective Me
diation, made a very hasty exit from
IIKCKKII, THE I!OTi:t. TllIKft
town this morning. As already 'told In
The World, Mrs, Decker left Manchester
soon after she learned of the arrest of
her alleged husband. She took with her
about $5,000 worth of Jewelry, but left
behind two large trunks. She returned
last night and went to the Central Hotel.
She told Mr. 'Vhalen, the proprietor of
the hotel, that she had nothing to .fear,
but this morning she left here again,
taking the 7.20 train for New York, She
probably won't come back to Manchester
ngaln, for Detective McMahon arrived
here Just two hours after shq had gone.
Thinking that Mrs. Decker mlgh't not
have taken away all the stolen prop
erty, he called upon Justice Samuel Sut
ton and got a warrant to search Mn.
MRS. DECKER, ACCOMPLICE
The llrst trunk opened was a revela
tion. In a tin box wns a memorandum
book, containing a list of places where
the thiet had disposed of stuff In the
South. Neur the box were a loaded re
volver' and some letters. Some were
from Germanv and some from Boston.
There was al a passport made out In
Berlin,' January, 1W2. The name given
In It Is Anna V'ogt. This Is the name of
Mrs. Decker'n sister, who was men
tioned In The World's despatch from
St. Augustine, Flu. The doctor's wife,
when she lived In Oermany, was known
as lielene Vogt. She went by that nume
In this country until she met the fellow
who now calls himself Decker. With
the letters was a draft, drawn by Brown
Hros. fc Co., of New York, on the
Hamburg banking house of Messrs. J.
Berstnbcrg, dossier & Co., and mado
payable to Franz Vogt.
Under the letters were half a dozen
suits, some London made and some from
New York. They were of different sizes
and were probably stolen.
At the- bottom of the trunk, carefully
packed away, were ten cases of medical
Instruments. Most of them were of
fine English make. Tho name of the
owner was carefully scratched from all.
On comparing a description of the In
struments given him before ho left the
South, Detective McMahon was able tp
locatk the owner qf a good part of them.
The detective valued the stolen goods
In this trunk at 12,000. In the second
trunk were some fine laces, and photo
graphs of women, whom the detective I
recognized as Southern Society belles.

I Detective McMahon left for New York
this afternoon. He said that the Vogt

I Inc. Anna Vogt lives In Uoston. The
detective was of the opinion that sh-j
was the young woman who was with
1 Decker shortly before his arrest. Franz
Vogt, the detective said, was the Eu-
' ropean agent. Anything that could not
'be disposed of at a good price In this
country was shipped abroad to Franz.
McMahon did not seem to be worried
at all at not finding Mrs. Decker here.
He said ho had Information which led
him to believe that she took a train on
the Pennsj lvanla road shortly after she
arrived in New York this morning. It Is
sUppoed srlo has gone to Philadelphia,
as Decker has friends there.
UOSTON, April 25,-Mrs. Frederick

sure she could Identify his picture. Her
father once saw the thief sneak out of
a room which wns occupied by another
guest. Mrs. Gilbert lost $300 worth of
jewelry, which she described ns follows: ,
Gold watch, open-face, with lnltlnls"F. 1
