DRILL STEEL FLOOR HE VAULT
Cashler'6 Vault Containing Hundreds
of Thousands of Dollars W.as Missed
", by About Six Feet—This Was Evi
dently Crooks' Objective Point.
Chicago, Oct. 21.—Burglars last
night stole $76,068 worth of stamps
from the postofflce and escaped without
leaving the slightest clew. A tunnel
which had taken a week or more to
complete was run from the rear of the
building and a hole then drilled
through the bottom of the
wholesale stamp vault. There
are ninety-seven small holes around
the square plate cut out and some
of the drilling looked to be several
days old. The stamp vault was only
six feet away from the cashier's vault
which contained over $300,000. The
latter had evidently been the objective
How It Was Done.
The postofflce building is a tempora
ry affair and the robbers had only to
open a little door to admit themselves
under the flooring. To reach the vault
it was necessary to crawl 300 feet ov
er the ends of boards which littered
the way. The work of forming an en
trance to the vault had evidently been
going forward with the greatest -pa
tience for many days. The bottom of
the vault steel is half an inch thick.
thiB ninety-seven holes were bored
until a space, just large enough to ad
mit a man's body had been made. This
weakened the vault so that it was pos
sible to remove the whole plate witn
little difficulty. A dry goods box stood
over the hole, concealing the work of
the robbers, while it was in progress.
So careful had the job been planned
tnat men working in other parts of
the building had not the slightest ink
ling that the daring robbery was be
ting worked almost under their noses.
Having secured the plunder the rob
bers loaded it into a wagon and drove
off. About $68,000 worth of stamps
are convertible into money, the bal
ance being postage due and .special de
