That t 'dicer Rendered
Splendid Service.
While admitting that the capture
of the Richmond poat-oflico robbers
ami the recovery ol their loot was
duo largely to the work of Luther i-.
Schercr, general agent ><( the Chesa?
peake and Ohio Itailw.iv. Postmaster
General Hitchcock, lr. ^ report made
to the Senat?- yesterday, says that uu.
dor the law he does not think that
Mr. .?eher, r .should receive more than
$300 for lily services. Some time ugo |
a hill was introduced in Congress to
pay Mr. Seherer |S,500. The Senate
wanted Information. It turned to the
Postmaster-General, who declines to
rccommeud payment ubove that gen-,
erally provided for In such caaer. 1
Immediately rupon the receipt of [
the report of the post-ofllco robbery |
nn Investigation was begun by post- j
office Inspectors, who were ably as- ;
sisted by Mr. Scherer. Upon his
suggestion it wns ascertained that a
few days before the robbery a man
claiming t? represent a New York
novelty house, had rented a sample
room in the Alhahibru Hotel, at
Eighth rttnl i ranklln Streets. A full
description of the man who rented
the room way obtained from the hotel
manager, and upon breaking open the .
door of the room, it was found that j
all entrances had been carefully,
Trunk-. Traced Prom Hotel.
It was .ilso learned that throe |
trunks had been removed from this
room at about t o'clock on the morn- 1
Ing of March ,.,S. 1010, by n driver.
And cheeked to Washington. With
this Information, arrangements were
made with Mr. Schercr for the use of
h's long distance telephone and his |
assistance in Iracing the three trunks.,
Uy his iii.i it was ascertained the j
trunks had been rccltccked at Wash-j
Ington, to different destinations.
The trunks won followed by post - j
office inspectors, the robbers appre- j
bended in Now York City, and tri"..
.iS In stamps was recovered. The
work of following the trunks and ap?
prehending th<- robbers was perform?
ed by the post-office inspectors ami
others, based upon Information se?
cured by Mr. Schercr In his office by
use of the loner distance telephone,
the expenses incident to which were
paid by the department. Of course,
the services of Mr. Seller--!" were of
material assistance in the capture of
the burglars.
Claims for reward on account of
services rendered In this case were
submitted to t.-.o department hy Mr. 1
Schercr and others, and t'hc inspectors
recommended In this case the payment j
of the maximum amount of reward al-i
lowablo Under the Postmaster-Gen-1
eral's notice of reward, and recom?
mended, in view of in? services reh
dered. that Mr. Schercr bo paid an
anionn: of $300, the payment of the
reman wrer, *ioo. bt-lng recommended

Ilelil llOMn by l,n?.
T r claims, accompanied with all
Other paper? relating thorirto. have
been certified to th? auditor for the
Post-Office Iiepurtrticn* for payment.
The department does r."t desire to
belittle the service, rend Md by Mr.
S-jherer In this case, T>ut recotrnlzes
that -ills assistance was probably the
jrr-atost factor in the apprehension of
two notorious professional burglars
and ttie recovery of a large amount of
government property. However, the
?fters of reward marie by the Post
Offlce Dapartmenl ami the amounts
fixed for th- .irrest and conviction of
certain off^nd-frs are based upon the
appropriation made by Congres*. and
have been 1n effect for a number of
years There have been a number, of
exeefrtliurlv meritorious ois^f, in which
the claimants have been reimbursed
Olrly to the extent of the mn>:tmumi
amount payable under the notice of
reward, and though the services of j
Mr. Schercr *ri th'v Instance -were val?
uable, It is suggested whether it would ]
ho a'matter of doubtful propriety to
make an exception In this case.

To the Voters
of Clay Ward
1 wish to inform you thai the change
ol ward lines in our city placed me in
Clay Ward. Being a member of t ho
City Council from Monroe Ward, and
not wanting to displace any of the old
members from Clay and Henry Ward-;,
I decided to offer for the Hoard ol
Aldermen from the new Clay Ward
(there being a vacancy). My old ward
(Momtic) only asks for one man out
of the right memlicrs, six of which arc
t'. I i elected this year.
I stand on my record, and am proud
of the fact that I have done my part,
toward making this a great and luaii
tiful city.
The new ward being so large it is
impossible for me to sec the voters
personally, I therefore ask that, after
investigation you lind my record good,
I shall gratefully appreciate your sup?
port. Kcpscctfully,
