PINKERION'S SUCCESS.
Moat of tho Money Stolon by "Cum
mlnp" Recovered.
Leavenworth. Kansas, December
29.— 1 t was learned at a late hour last night
that Detective Pinkerton came to tills city
in response to a summons from Mrs. Wit
ruck, “Jim Cumming’s” mother, who in
formed him (Pinkerton) that she had some
important information for him. When
Pinkerton arrived at Mrs. Witrock’s house
he was handed an express package con
taining $22,000 in currency, which Witrock
had sent to his family after the robbery,
sending word by the messengers who
brought the money that tie had won it by
gambling and speculating. lie directed
his family to keep the money secreted for
him as he had shot a man in Chicago, and
he told them it would be attached for dam
ages, and that he was obliged to leave Chi
cago on account of this shooting.
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.
While the two officers were absent with
young Witrock from the house Mrs. Wit
rock was Induced by a reporter to tell what
she knew of the case, as her son's connec
tion witli it could not be concealed.
lictweeu her broken sobs she admitted
that Fred had |iarticipatcd in the robbery,
but he would be released, as he had con
fessed all to tho detectives. She said that
shortly after the robbery Oscar Cook came
to lawvcnworth and visited her one eve
ning, and after talking to her for some
time, he said Fred was in trouble; that lie
had made a large sum of money on a wtieat
ileal in Chicago, and had some difficulty
with a broker over the matter, which ended
by his shooting the latter. That he had to
llee from the country and he wanted his
mother to’take care of the money until she
heard from him further. This she agreed
to do and the money was left in her posses
sion.
Some time after tills another young man
who lives in this city, but whose identity
she refuses Ut divulge, called and left an
other package of money, and that on two
other occasions two oilier young men called
at different times and left money, which
they said had come from Fred. 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."
