last spring. Incidentally thoy hnv 0 nrrcstod one
Johnnlo Butts, nnd a colored woman, Lily Den

Butts's nrrestw as made because he sold to Lewis

months ago, Kaufman wns arrestod yesterday
on the charge ot receiving stolen goods. Ho
has been released on $100 bonds, nnd thn

evidence ngnlnst her. Inspector Mattlngly and
Detcctlvo Woedon by brilliant work succeoded
In recovering from pawnshops and other
plnccs in Brooklyn and elsowhoro nbout $700
or$H0O worth of sllverwaro and jewelry out of
the $0,000 or $7,000 worth stolen last spring.
This Is the first timo since tho "Jack tho

amount have been recovered by tho Washing
ton detective forco, nnd naturally everybody,
from tho new Supeiintcndcnt of Police down,
wns well pleased at the excellent showing mado
by Inspector Mattlngly and Detective Weedon.
Inspector Mattlngly has strong hopes of recov
ering nt lenst $200 w orth more. Tlio robberies
In which tho silverware and jewelry roforred
to were stolen occurred early last spring,
just as pcoplowero beginning to lonvo oiien
their windows to catch the first breercs of
tho spring. Ah they nearly all occurred
during the absence of tho families or whllo
they woro githerod on tho first Door the de
tectives nrrlved nt tho conclusion that It was
tho work of "sccond-stor workers " Thoy
usually enter a houso by climbing over tho
porch, or up tho waterspout or window shut
ters, although sometimes they use a long lad
der It Is customary ln buth cases for tho thief
to have some ono who acquaints himself with
tlio habits ot the family so that he can deter
mine what timo they nre most likely to bo ab
sent from the rooms which he proposes to In
vade This .11 complleo during tho actual timo
ot the robbery Is usunllj Btatloned out-sldo tho
house to give the alarm In case n policeman
should stroll along It Is this work which
Butts is supposed to have dono for Mason.
When Mason wns arrested about a month ngo
