HIDDEN U N DER TRAP DOOR Police Make Second Visit to Front Street House and Recover More Sil verware?Door Was in the Floor and was Hidden by a Rug? Police Called to Metuchen to Look at Prisoner There, but he was not Identified. Chief Burke and Detective Huff rfe oovered more silverware in the house of Mary Bowe yesterday afternoon which, as told in yesterday's News, was raided by these offioers and $2,000 worth of stolen Roods recovered. The amount reooverod this time was much smaller than the first haul, but it was found in the same house. The officers were not satisfied that they had recovered all nor are they yet satisfied with the results of their efforts. Immediately after the Mr haul was safely lodged at police head quarters the Chief and Detective Huff started one again. They went to the old house in Front street. In looking about, the things still left in the house and which were in oharge of the landlord, were turned over in the slight hope of obtaining more clues when suddenly, in the raising of an old rug, a trap door was discover ed. The Chief lifted it jnst to see if anything was beneath, and more sil verware, probably $100 worth, was found. - The goods were carried to the polioe station where a telephone message awaited them requesting their immediate presence in Metuchen. A man giving the name of Harry Jones, of North Adams, Mass.. had been picked up for trying to sell a set of surgioal instruments. The first thought of the Metuchen police was that he was connected in some way with the locol 'case, but 'our offioers failed to identify him although the chief said he was satisfied the man was a orook. The Justice of the Peace, before whom the man was arraigned, evidently believed he was a crook for he committed him to the county jail for thirtv days pending an investigation. A telegraph despatch from District Attorney Jerome, of New York, call ed Detective Huff to New York this morning to testify before the grand jury there against Walter Rein alias Ernest Scott, and his brother, who gave his name as Edward Scott. They are the ones whom the local polioe arrested aboard the stolen yaoht ' ' Pinoohle, ' ' last week. A story print ed in a New York paper telling of their arrest attraoted the attention of a victim of river pirates in Connecti cut as told in yesterday's News, which resulted in the raid.
