The money had not been disturbed and it was in the original wrappers. It is sup posed that Witrock during one of ills visits to this city, hid large sums of money that was stolen, and tiiat lie will now turn over to the detectives. There has already been recovered of the stolen money about $45,- 000. Shortly after midnight thedetectives who brought Fred Witrock, alias “Jim Cum mings," to this city, left Witrock’s house with their prisoner and repaired to a hotel and took a room and retired.

When asked if she knew the amounts by the sum total, she said she did not; that they were large packages, but she had never counted it, be lieving implicitly in Fred's story, and thinking she was doing him a favor by car ing for the property and not dreaming but that lie came by it honestly, And had no oc casion to use Aliy of it, having money of his own. When asked how the detect!res happened to be here searching her house she said: “When I heard of Fred’s arrest I immedi ately wrote to the express company, telling them of ttio money and requesting them to come to Leavenworth, and that is undoubt edly why they are here."
