afternoon after Detective Larkin nt
Altaian's had watched them pack away
in a hag and carry out of the store gooda
valued at
At the Tenderloin police station, wlterii
the young women were locked up on a
charge of grand larceny, they said that
they were Mrs Helen dreen, the wifT
of an oil maii'm business at 110 Front
street , Philadelphia, and living on Spruce
street, nnd Miss Anna Merrill Jacquel
of 29 Fast Unities street, dormant own.
The store detective says he saw ths

Mis dreen after picking over some ail
remnants take a travelling hag from
her companion and lip into'it silk valued
at I8. Then the pair went on to the
leather counter, where Mrs dreen picked
up two leather shopping hag and passed
them over to Mi Jacquel. who now car
ried the travelling hag and who put the
shopping bags in with the silk.
Larkin didn't interfere, for it is tiecee-
aary in order to make out a case of shop-
1 if l ing to show that tho atolen articles
were actually taken out of the store. But
the two women after looking about a
while went out. I,arkin followed them
to the street and told them that they'd
better come back to the office and es
The women after expressing indigna
tion decided that they'd go back. The
travelling bag waa unloaded in the office,
and in addition to the things which the
detective had Been them take there were
found four silk waists and a fine lace table
cover, which had not some from A It man a
The women failed to explain satisfactorily
and Detectives Hyams and Hughes, Cen
tral Office men attached to the Tenderloin
precinct, were called in to make the
When they reached the station house
Mrs. dreen removed her gloves, and
taking two large diamond rings from her
hands laid the rings on the desk in front
of Lieut Morris and aaked the store
detective and the police lieutenant to
let her and her companion go. since the
rings would cover the value of the things
taken from the tore. They were told
that it was too late to make payment.
When Mrs. Mulhane, the matron, came
to escort them to cells both women broke
down. Mrs dren. a slim brunette, who
said she was 22 years old. grew so hys
terical that Miss Jacquel, who is a year
younger but who kept better command
of her nerves, had to assist her to a cell.
Before she was locked up Mrs. Green
said that she would die before she would
let any of her friends know what had
hapjiened. but after a few minutes in the
cell she called for a telegraph blank and
wrote a despatch to Byron Wrigley. who,
she said, is a Philadelphia magistrate.
She undressed it to the corner of Lehigh
and dermantown avenues hut said that
she wasn't quite certain of the addrese.
Then Miss Jacquel asked the police
lieutenant to telephone to the office of
Milton Speiser, a lawyer at 170 Broad
way, and tell Mr. Speiser that Helen
Drew was locked up and please come at
once. If he didn't remember Helen
Drew he was to he told that Jacques waa
locked up. She didn't explain the change
in the names.
A little later the women sent a tele
phone message to Mark Alter, another
lawyer, and presently but at different
times, the two lawyers came to the sta
tion house. They wouldn't talk about
their clients as they hurried away to
arrange for the taking of ball before a
Ma gist rate.
Meanwhile the Pennsylvania Railroad
in response to a message from the police
had been tracing a suit case which, from
a receipt found in the prisoners' possession,
the delectives learned, had been sent to
Philadelphia early in the day The rail
road people caught the suit case at Phila
delphia and shipped it back again.
It was a big suit case and its sides bulged.
When questioned about it the women haH
said that it contained soiled clothe which
they had shipped home. But when the
detective opened it they found in ad
dition to two soiled suits the following
articles Two new women's suits and
a waist from Wanamaker's, worth in all
about tun; a raincoat, several pair of
fine gloves, silk pajamaa and a collection
of ribbons from Saks's, a fine eilk aklrt
from Ciimbel Bros.' and corset and a
pair of fancy buckles set with brilliants
from Siegel-Cooper's. There were also
two new towels marked Hotel Knicker
bocker The police aaid that they understood
that the yourig women had sent another
package to Philadelphia and that they
were trying to add that to their collection.
To the store detective the prisoners
said that they had come here on Monday
and had been visiting friends on West
Twenty-second street. Miaa Jacquel con
fided to the detective that although she
had never worked before ahe had recently
been employed by "the Aubrev sisters"
in demonstrating; just what she "demon

i that, she had had to go to work because
her mother had had a serious and expen

In the suit case. Then they noticed that
both prisoners were weuring new clothes
and they thought that explained It.
Following up the clew given by the
: towels with the Hotel Knickerbocker
mark, the police found that Mrs. Helen
dreen had been living there since Oo
