ItEPUBLlC SPTCTAU New York, June 1. The police of two con tinents are at work trying to solve the mystery of tho disappearance of the valu able painting by Felix Zlem which was shipped via the American Express Company from Paris to New York, but never reached this city. . Somewhere between No. 11 Rue Scribe. Paris, and the New York Custom-house, tho beautiful painting, which some critics say is worth $15,000, was stolen. No other ex planation fits the case, for the simple rea son that the box In which the picture was packed and the frame which held It reached the Custcm-house all right. Only tho panel Mas missing. The theft was discovered when the cus toms officials weighed the package. It was discovered to be lighter than It was when shipped by tho express company from No. 11 Hue ScrlDe. Ihls fact aroused suspicion and the box was opened. One glance showed the empty frame and revealed a theft w hich for Ingenuity and mystery rivals any Transatlantic theft on record and threatens to baffle the sleuths of America and Eng land for many months. ricTuiiE pnoitAiiLY wili, 11E HIDDEN A LOMi TIME. There Is scant chance that the picture will be seen again for many years. A painting Bigned by Zlem. iould attract lmmealato at tention in any art store or studio where the present possessor of It might hope to get any thing like the true value of the work. Dis covery of the thief would immediately fol low. According to the theory of the New York police the theft was accomplished be fore the package was placed on board La Touralne, and that It was the work of a highly accomplished thief a man or wom an who possesses financial and other re sources and can afford to wait five years or ten, if necessary, to dispose of the stolen masterpiece. llEAVAItD OFFCnED FOR HETTR.. Oil DISCOVERY OF THIEF. The following notice has been sent out by the express company accompanying a cir cular describing the picture: "To Picture Dealers and Others: "STOLEN PICTURE. "On April 9, there was shipped through the American Express Company. 11 Rue Scribe, Paris, to New York, a case con taining a painted panel by Zlem, which Is fully described under the reproduction on this circular. "The case was delivered on April 10 to the railroad company at St. Lazare Sta tion, Paris, was forwarded to Havre by express and shipped on board the S. S. La Touralne, which sailed for New York April 12. Upon the case being opened at the Custom-house In New York, the paint ed panel was found to have been abstracted from the frame. "A liberal reward will be paid for any Information which may lead to the de tection of the thief, or the discovery of the picture." W. S. DALLIBA, "Manager In Europe." BEAETIFEL CAXAL SCENE VIEW AT SUNSET. In the circular the picture is described as follows: "A canal, water blue and tranquil, be tween high houses, the facade of a church and other buildings.

BOX WAS I.AJIELKD WITH "BLEVD MARKINGS." On April 9 the picture was left at the of fice of tho American Express Company, No. 11 Rue Scribe. ParK That night it lay with other parrels, carefully guarded by a night watchman, who Is confident that no person could have entered the room containing the picture. It was boxed In a liar J woo J case, with the following mark ings upon the lid: WITH CARE. A. 1L X.. 313. Side to open TABLEAUX. No address was upon the case and noth ing to Indicate the name of the buyer to whom It was consigned. It was labeled with what the express company officials call blind markings, and It was thought Us appearance was sufficiently Innocent to conceal the character of the contents. rAIXTIXG LOCKED AND SEALED IX OXE OF STEAMER'S HATCHES. The next morning the case was placed In an express car, which was locked, but not sealed, and sent to Ha-re. The car made the run from Paris to Havre In forty-eight hours an unusually long time which indi cates that there must have been many stops on the road It was landed at the docks at Havre on the morning of April II. where it lay until the last of the cargo had been put aboard the French liner La Touralne, as Is ru"! tomary with express, packages. It wax then E laced In one of the forward freight atches. The hatch was almost Immediate ly replaced, locked and sealed. The seals on the fre'ght hatch were not broken until La Touralne arrived In New York, on April 19. The picture case, with the other exprJss matter, was carted from the pier to the appraiser's stores, where it was taken In charge by an Inspector XAME OF WALL STREET PURCHASER XOT REVEALED. tVhen placed on the scales it was found that there was a material difference be tween the weight given In the waybill and that shown on the scais. The attention of Robert Train, represent ative of the American Exprere Companv, was called to the lightness of the pack age. He figured out that the difference would represent Just about the weight of the panel. "That picture has been ttolen." he said. There were no marks upon the case to indicate that it had been tampered with. When opened, however, the case was found to contain only the frame, the panel having been abstracted somewhere be tween Paris and New York. The authorities of the express company refused to disclose the name of the man to whom the picture was consigned. It was learned, however, that he is a man of great wealth, social prominence and reputation In 'Wall street, who Is at pres ent absent from the city. Bond Required of Mrs. De Ford.

Circuit Attorney Folk Sars Grand Jury Acted Advisedly in Re ferring to Ex-Mayor Ziesrenhein. Former City Register Henry Besch, against whom the April Grand Jury has re turned an Indictment, as exclusively an nounced In Tho Republic, charging him with official misconduct, has not returned to St. Louis. His family and friends declare that he Is on a business trip, and that he will return when he has completed his business, but they profess to be unuble to say Just where he can be located. The Deputy Sher iffs who have been searching for him, the Circuit Attorney and other Four Courts of ficials who are Interested In learning his whereabouts believe that he Is in Mexico. A call at his home. No. SS32 California avenue, brought to the door a girl, who said she was the only member of the household at home. She said Mr. Besch was out of the city, where, she did not know, and she did not know when he would return. Circuit Attorney Eofa, discussing former Mayor Zlegenheln's threat to Institute suit for libel against the members of the Grand Jury which accused him In Its report of having misappropriated public funds, said that he was not worried by the threat, and he did not believe the Grand Jurors would lose much sleep over It. Mr. Zlegenheln, In his labored explanation, he said, had mere ly confirmed what the Grand Jury had charged m Its report that he had used pub lic moneys for a purpose not intended by the law. Be said: "I do not wish to discuss the legal phase of this matter at present. Generally Break ing, however, a presentment by a Grand Jury, within the sphere of Its duties, not prompted by malice, is privileged. "The Constitution of Missouri authorizes and directs Grand Juries to investigate the official acts of all officers handling public moneys and report the result of their In quiries to the court. "Furthermore, the truth In cases of this kind cannot be libelous. Teh report as to Mr. Zlegenheln was not made by the Jury hastily or Inadvisedly, but with full knowl edge of all the facts. "If he deslrts to test the truth of the statements, I am sure he would gratify each member of the Jury. "In the action brought by the State to recover the money, he will be given unre stricted opportunity to be heard In court as to the charges." The prosecution of the men already in dicted by the three Grand Juries will be resumed this week. To-day the case of John H. Becker. Deputy Factory, charged with attempted bribery, will be called In the Court of Criminal Correction. Becker was a former member of the House of Del egates. It Is charged that when Charles Krats. the ex-Councilman, was about to be tried for bribery, Becker, at the solicitation of Kratz's friends, attempted to bribe the Jury Commissioner to "fix" the special Jury which had been asked for by the Cir cuit Attorney. A special Jury w-HI try Beck er' case.

President Yoakum of the Frisco has par tially put to flight tho fears of his friends that his road Is to be absorbed by some other system. In his New York interview Saturday he stated that, so far as he knew, no negotiations were under way for the purchase of the Frisco. President Yoakum said "so far as I know," which is almost enough assurance for most of his friends in- the Southwest, but not quite enough Not one of them In St. Louis after reading his interview In The Republic yesterday but that wished he had said. "I want to say that there is ab solutely nothing in these reports of offers for FriFco stocks; that !s, tho holders of Frisco stock could not consider an offer. They have too uood a thing for that." As Mr. Yoakum states, he is very likely to be aware of negotiations for the sale of the road. He Is the road that Is. President Yoakum is tho Frisco. President Yoakum is ambitions to make It one of tho biggest and greatest systems in the country- He wants to spike the continent from the At lantic to tne Pacific and to build an arm to the Gulf. He has traveled over tho line of his plans to the Pacific, and he knows the lay of the Southeast. He has Intimated so strongly that he might as well have said: "The Frisco will build from ocean to ocean. Ours will be the first complete transconti nental system In the United States." The Frisco la now building to Memphis, and It will also build to the Gulf, following the Mlssippi to Mobile or New Orleans. President Yoakum has also sold that he Is not building a road to sell.

Louis Houck is building railroads to Southeast Missouri. He has announced thnt he will connect the St- Louis and GulC with the Choctaw and the Wiggins Ferry. The former Is a Rock Island road, and tho Wiggins Ferry property is In dispute. Who ever gets the latter property, thero Is e. chance for Houck to dispose of his road. The impression is that ne will do that when the right opportunity shows Itself. The Rock Island announced to The Re public that It would build south t the Choctaw. The Rock Island threatened to parallel the Choctaw, and forced a sale. Many be liete that Is what the road will do to tha Frisco. But many always believed that the fhoctaw was built to sell, and very few believe President Yoakum Is building up that kind of a system. Boars tho Signs turo of aSc" iKltc&en Utensilsl ftAV K A. T2.
