ter, (who was formerly n pay teller in this bank)
was to unlock ths outer vault door, which was
fastcne,I by a combination lock, which he under
stood when he was in tho bank, and which he
then explained to them. Aiken was to get into
ths safe, and who then and there said, "if it was
a 'Lilly Safe' he could go through it in three
quaiters of an hoar." Aiken was to go to Phil
atlslphia, and get a dark lantern and some tools;
Greenwalt was to meet him in Wilmington, at
6 o'clock in the evening, convey him to Newark
and take him to the rear of .Squire Caulk's sta
ble. They were to divide tho spoils equally n
moug tlicm; and if any oho wus absent at the
tim« of the robbery be was to lose his share.
Greenwalt was to make ruhlxr bags iu which to
preserve ths stolen fonds, and further, if cither
of the four should ever bnnth it, he was to sur*
fer death.
Several meetings were had subsequently be- J

March, Adams and Miller agreed to try one of
the keys. Adams said to Miller, there Is no need j
of you going. Miller said "very well" and went
home, but came around to the bank yard and ;
laid down under a tree there to wait for Adams |
to come to the bank, and see if he entered the

Miller heurd him working nt the door; but lie
