From Twomey and Make
.-OAKLAND," April "20.— The tailoring
establishment of ;C. J. Twomey, 1253
Broadway, was entered at an early
hour this ;morning- by two burglars,
who battered -in the wooden .shutters
and door at the rear of the place, se
cured 10 suits and several rolls of piece
goods valued at about $1,500 and es
caped In a wagon. '
People living in the neighborhood
say that they heard nothing during
the night and no one saw the men.
That the. booty was carried to a wagon
and then hauled away is considered
certain, as the weight and bulk of the
goods would have been too much \ for
even two strong men. '
Twomey is of the opinion that the
men; are. well versed in relative quality
of tailoring, goods* A large stock of
novel goods, of \u25a0 the finest quality had
just been' shipped, in and the thieves,
after throwing the entire stock of the
establishment on the floor, picked out
the best materials and the most likely
for sales, showing good taste. Twomey
said that he had not the slightest clew
to the burglars." v-,'.
