Daring Thief at New York Grand
Central Pick Least Valu
able Bag.
NEW YOKK, June ll.-Out of nun'
dreda 6f registered mk.lt bags, soma of
them containing many thousands of
dollars, a robber, or robbers, at tne
Grand Central Terminal last Wednes
day night picked about the least valu
able of all, by a scheme which is de
scribed as unique and daring.
with only eleven minutes' leeway, a
man crawled under the platform ledge
of track No, U, where train No. !ss, the
last western man, was loading, ana
grabbed an Inside sack, which might
have contained bank balances en route
between untcago and New if org. lie
found himself later in possession of a
sack consigned to Portland. Ore., tilled
with registered packages, one of which
contained a Itu bill, another a broker's
invoice, tnree or four with small
articles of jewelry, and others with
nondescript merchandise. On the same
platform in pouches exactly similar
were fortunes.
Carries Valuable Mail.
Train, No. as, made up entirely ot
malt cars, leaves the Orand., Central
Terminal at :ll everjrrevenlnr" It is
tho aristocrat iof. all mall trains, for It
carries such things as bank clearances
not sent by express, Government de
posits, and things of like value. It
would make the fortune or any train
robber, but It travels with the speed or
tho 'twentieth Century limited, and it
connects at Chicago with mall flyers
which make record trips to the Pacific
"The 'train Is made ud on platform
No. K, on the upper level at the Termi
nal, and when It Is making ready that
particular platform Is as closely guard
ed as a foreign ruler. However, under
the projecting ledgo of the platform is
a shelving spaco about three feet wide
and four feet high alone- which the
"knookers." the men who (est wheels
and air brakes, can go lust before a
train mills out
It happens that at the far end of the
platform an excavation on the Lexing
ton avenue side of the terminal begins.
No one thought of this Wednesday
nigni wnen me registered man arrived
at !l5 for the t:tl train. There was
not much time to think of anything, tot
It all had to be done In sixteen minutes.
It was known further that at 9:21. five
minutes before the train's departure, the
xnocicer" would come along and ex
amine everything under the platform.
Find Empty Sack.
The man who did this on Wednesday
night found an Inside pouch, which is
smaller than one of the big leather
cases, nppea open and lying on the
track. Everything had been taken from
It. The checkers Inside the car discov
ered at once that It -was the Tortland
pouch and reference to the postofflce
record showed that it had contained
eleven placet.
Postofflce authorities said yesterday
they had discovered that some one
working with a platform man or aided
by a hook had abstracted the pouch
from a pile on the platform. He had
known that he had only eleven minutes
to do the trick and had taken a chance
of getting something valuable. The total
value of the loot was only a few hun
dred dollars. It was said.
