TThe Till And Saf I Itlfled jfbberm Setar over 10O litsldes a ttol Mat eh au4 King-Old AUo HImIds. As John Tamboline, the day bartender at Knlrel & Scbroeder's saloon, on Fifth treet entered the eatoon at about G o'clock this morning he noticed that the frack door of the saloon was wide open On investigation, it was found that the place had been entered by burglars, who bad looted the place of all the money in fcoth till and safe. The proprietors of the Xlace were at once notified and were soon on the scene. It was found thac the party or parties who had committed the -deed had gamed an entrance to the bate 4ueat of the building through a cellar win dow, opening into the furnace room, on the sooth Bide of the building. To gain 4uz entrance into the cellar proper a door, fcept closed by a wooden prop from the inside, bad to be forced, which was eyi deatly easily done, as the prop used was piece of ordinary 5-inch ceiling. This door forced, the burglar found himself in the cellar where the case beer is stored, and to gain an entrance to the liquor cellar, which is in direct communication with the barroom, another door had to be forced, which was done by the use of a large crowbar. From the marks on the -edge of the door and casing, seyeral at tempts were evidently made before the staple holding the lock was forced. Th'w part of the cellar entered, every thing was eacy, as the door leading from the cellar to the barroom is always kept -open to aseist in ventilating the cellar. Once in the sa'oon, it was an easy mat terforthe burglar, who was evidently acquainted with the place, to secure the contents of both till and safe. It basal ways been customary with the proprie tors, on leaving the saloon at night, to turn the combination only half off in etead of all the way, so the ssfe could be -opened in the morning br the bartender without the ute of the combination. This was evidently known to the robber, (or the safe had been opened and to gain eatrance to the several drawers in the aefe a screwdriver, judging from tie marks in the wood, bad been used in pry ing the drawers cpen. These drawers eing opened, the thief secured something "ike 100 in silver money, besides a gold 'and silyer watch, a gold ring and a bag of old coins, the latter the personal prop erty of Frank Schroeder. The actual falue of these coins, as to their denomi nation, was about $93, buta large num ber of them were rare and very valuable, and the collectiou at a eale would easily bring J300. There were seyertol checkr, already endorsed, also in the safe, but the?e were untouched, but everything in 'the fchaue of money, with the exception of -10 cents that was le!t in one of the drawers, was taken. AitPT the robber had secured his booty "belel t the building by way of the bask door whii h was easily opened by turning the which was left in the door and it was 'this do or that wait left open that At tracted the bartenders attention in the iirat place. It was aleo through this floor that the burglar tried to gain an entrance in the first place, for a place on r lie ideof the lock large enough to insert - ti.n'-fl hand was partially cut through the door with a knife. The culprit either oeio disturbed or wishing to make fast er tine in ade the entrance as above. It a very cleyer and successful piece of cobtery as there is do flue in the least Jio j C'Tk upon. The total loss to the . "STTOvrUtors will probably be about f 500, h greater part falling on Mr. Schroeder 3y Ue lows of bis collection of coins. One -coin In particular, a French piece dated ' lilt", wb'ch was giyen him by bis grand--5.r, was very highly priied. Mr. Schroder said be eoold Identify the coins 02oold h see them again, be was so tfamTr.ar witbtnev, and the only hope of diTyermg tfa perpetrator of the deed is that be may try to pass these colt. Cti la the second time within four or fire month that the saloon was looted, lor it was only last spring that some thing like f COO waa stolen in a similar wray. Last Hlgbt'a Ilaee.
