BANK ROBBERS GET $15,000 IN GASH LOS ANGELES, Nov. 24.— Robbers broke into the local Japanese bank at 111 East Fifth street last night and took cash to the amonnt of 115,000. The robbers gainel access to the tank, which is a branch of the Bei Cinkc, by opening the door of a bicy cle simp in the adjoining buiidirg. cutting a hole through the brick wall into thejtank and thus reaching the rear of the safe. They had intended it appears, to break into the safe by the use of dynamite as tools and dyn damite were found by the police be hind the safe. Evidently they feared the noise of an explosion, so near to a busy corner, and retorted to the use of chisels. With these a hole was cut through tbe back of the safe, a task that must have required sereral hours' steady work. Through this hole the strong box was reached and all the cash taken out except $312, which was covered with papers. The robbery was not dis covered until the bank was about to open for business. The police say it was the work of experts. NEW YORK, Nov. 24.—The Jews on the east side today are mourning for tbe victims of the Russian massa cres.

Do not bury me. 'Have you any mosey?', I was asked. 'Yes.' 'How much?' 'Ten roubles.' 'Hand them over.' He took the money and gave me the red mark and wen t on, but had not gone far when a Japanese felled him. "Why should I lose my money? 1 thought. I crawled to the fallen man. He was dead.
