Tho Chicago, Burlington & Qulncy Railroad Victimizod to tha Tuna of (527,000. A Paymastar's Lunch Which 0a-l His Employers a Fortune and liim self a Situation, The Well Kept Secret Revealed at Last to Prevent the Circulation of Exaggerated Stories. CiiK Aiio, March 7. Last Saturday about 1 o'clock lu the afternoon Ray master C. A. Rartlett, of the Chicago, Jlurlliijjtoii & (Qulncy Railroad, left hia oiliee for lunch without taklu the nece. aly precaution to close the combination of the bi safe la which money for the payment of employes was deposited. On h aving the room he did so without wait ing the return of other attaches of the oflice, w ho had all gone to lunch. Refore his return the safe was robbed of all Its contents, with theexception of somepack ap,esof nickels and small change, the total amount disappearing, as near as the com pany ollicials can estimate, being $'.'7,000. n tlie facts becoming known aud an 1 11 vcsvi'.'atio!) being Instituted, 'Paymaster liartlett was discharged from the service of t lie company for negligence, aud the matter placed lit the hands of detectives. Lffort was made to keep the affair a secret in the hope that the detectives would be facilitated in their work, but the affair becoming know n, and In the belief that an exaggerated statement would be puh IMicd concerning the robbery, the officials showed a willingness to let the exact facts be furnished t lie public. T11K THKOl'.Y ADVANCED by the Treasurer of the company is that the robbery was accomplished by a sneak thief. Two doors lead into the cashier's oflice from a vacant room, one of which was found ajar 011 the paymas ter's return. The Paymaster's room Is located in the general oilices of tbe com pany on the second floor of the building, a:id was constructed especially with a view to guard against intrusion or theft, but In tills Instance the most ordinary precautions appear to have been Ignored. The explanation given by the Paymaster is that it was supposed that the vacant room adjoining his otllce was al ways kept locked, but lu this case It was proved otherwise. This door was close to and adjoining the vault iu which the safe was located. AVhen the Pay master left the room the cashier of the company and an assistant, who occupy practically the same room, but sit at desks somewhat removed from the vault, and In an angle which partially conceals the entrance to the vault, so that any oue eutering from the vacant room could have accomplished the robbery without their knowledge, the Paymaster assumes that the robbery mut have been committed by some one having complete knowledge of the room ami the habits of its occu pants. itAii(; Tin: wi.i. Sing-ular Discovery of Buried Treasure Trove Other Finds. Gosiikn, X. A'., March ".A. few days ago as some workmen were making an excavation for a windmill on the farm of Henry Smith near Unionville, this county, they came upon a flat stone, a foot wide and two feet long, and about four feet be low the surface. Upon removing it, it proved to be the covering to a shallow pit, the four sides of which were laid up with brick, A Spanish dollar, which on being cleaned showed the date of 17S1, was found in the pit; also an obi ona pile of something resembling scorched paper about six Inches long and three inches w ide, and which reached half way up to the top jf the pit. Upon being touched it crumbled to pieces. There were uo legi ble marks upon it, but from its shape aud appearance it Is believed to have been a pile of bank notes. At different times since the revolutionary war buried treasures of greater or less value have been unearthed in the above neighbor hood and different parts of the county. The plow has frequently brought these treasures to the surface, notably In a Held near Unionville, where ouly a few years ago a farmer came upon an earthen jar which contained nearly 8100,000 in old gold and coin. A gentleman named I'orwin discovered a sealed jar in 1871 near Cornwall while excavating for a cel lar, w hich was I ll.I-KI) WITH AXCIEXT COIX, t:e whole amounting to over $1,500. It is supposed that these hoards of money and treasure were secreted by persons who lived in the vicinity to keep them from falling into the hamls of predatory bands of Tories, cowboys and Indians, which were continually raiding the early settlements, and that the owners, driven from their homes, were either unable to re turn and recover their property or locate its hiding places. Many of the present gen eration are linn believers in the legend that there are $100,000 In gold buried in an iron chest on Crabtreo Island, lu a wild part of Vernou Township, Sussex County. This, according to the legend, was placed there by a large band of Tor ies, who secured the plunder in tho lower portion of the Delaware Valley, and, be ing pursued and close pressed by American soldiers, they were guided by a Tory named DeWitt to the spot named, where they deposited. DeWitt lived many years after the Revolution near Port Jervis, and a son of his died on'y a few years ago, nearly 100 years of uge. The family always Insisted on tho truth of tho buried treasure story, and In years past much money and time have been spent In endeavors to It ml the hidden riches. The (hiding of the pit with tho evidences that money had been buried In It, near Unionville, has awakened new Interest In tueCrabtree Island legend, and there Is talk of another search for the Tory plunder. She's a Jewess. IIamtmohk, Mn., March 7.A sensa tion was created hero yesterday by tho announcement of the marriage of Miss Jollsta Hopwood, a beautiful young girl, to William Oberndorsfer, a wealthy young Israelite, coupled with the OA RO news that she had embraced Judaism to satisfy her lover. Miss Itopwood's father Is a prominent citizen aud a staunch Protestant, being one of tho ves trymen of the Ascension Protestant Kpiscopal Church, obendorfer came to this city last Spring from Norfolk on a visit to Mrs. Laura, a relative, who lives opposite Mr. Hopwood's house. While there he met Miss Hopwood and a mutual Interest arose. A few weeks Ago, just as the young people had decided to brave all obstacles and marry, Mr. Hopwood informed his daughter that It was time she became a member of tho Ascension Church. To this her lover strenuously objected, and at his bidding S11K F.I.OPKD WITH HIM a few days ago to South Mills, Va., and they were married. Mr. Orbendorfer took his bride to his home In Norfolk. Her people were greutly exercised over her disappearance, as she left no word behind her. After a long search they tracked her to Norfolk. Ilerparents went immediately to that nlace. but were forced to return without her. They yes terday publicly announced the marriage. At the same time news came that Mrs. Obendorfer had embraced Judaism. Tho Rabbi warned her not to take the step unless her motives were pure. She re plied: "My motives are pure." The Rabbi formally received her into the faith. FltO.H WASHINGTON. The Retort Sarcastic. "Washington, D. C, March 7. Hon. Vvilliam Henry Smith, of New York, Is expected to appear before the Senate Committee on Post-offices and Post roads In bekalf of the Associated Press. It was the de.sjre of the committee that Smith should appear immediately after Swiueford, who gave his testimony yes terday, but Smith informed Chairman Hill on Tuesday that it would be incon venient for him on Thursday owing to an Important committee meeting of the Asso ciated Press. It is now learned that the "important, committee meeting" was for the purpose of discussing the testimony given In-fore the Post-office Committee by Walter Phillips, General Manager of the United Press, and "for preparing a state ment defending the methods of the Asso ciated Press. Since Tuesday, Smith's envoy lias been endeavoring to make ar rangements to have the committee meet at ten o'clock this morning for the purpose of hearing him, but the answer to the re quest was that it would be Inconvenient to do so. As the gentlemen would be de tained ou the bill but a short time, it would be unnecessary to call a meeting at so early an hour. Shortly after Smith appeared, when the committee was called to order. Smith proceeded to read from a manuscript a statement in refutation of the evidence given tending to show that the Associa ted Press is a monopoly. "The word monopoly In connection with the Associa ted Press," Smith said, "Is due to misin formation. The news of the association is free to all desiring it. The Govern ment charges rich "and poor alike for postage. The Associated Press discrimi nates iu favor of the poorer papers." He took up the testimony of Walter Phillins. of the I'uited Press, aud proceeded to deny tlie statements therein seriatim. It was untrue that it cost the United Press as much to serve one paper in Chi cago as it did tlie Associated Press to serve seven. Kxclusiveness, so far as a city is concerned, is not recognized by the Associated Press. He referred to the long struggle of the Association iu build ing up its business, and asked If it was the Intention of the committee to sweep it a!l away. Srencer Before the Committee on Ex penditures. WASiiixriTO.v, I). C, JIarch 7. Ex Senator George E. Spencer, of Nevada, was heard this morning by the House Committee on Expenditures concerning the Star-route matter. It seems that Spencer was among the first who called the attention of the Department to the alleged dishouest transaction of the con tractor, lie cited tho route in Nevada leading out from Eureka where seven mails a .week were paid for, and only three received. Later witness went to New York where a warrant was served upon him to appear at the Dorsey-Brady trial. He protested and complained of being subptened from New York. The pro cess should have been served upon him at his home In Nevada. He thought it bad policy to call him as a witness as he knew nothing that would aid the prosecution. Attorney Bliss promised several times to talk with him, but avoided the witness, and finally told Sec retary Chandler that he did'nt want to talk to witness until he was on the wit mess stand. Witness went to New York and saw Roscoe Conkllngand showed hira the suhpuma. Conkling said the service was illegal and advised wituess to go about his business and pay no attention to the subpoena. Witness considered this good advice and went back to Neva da; heard uo more until November 21st, when the Government brought him here upon attachment. The case was heard by Judge Wylle, who decided tho service illegal and discharged the suit. "I never saw Horsey aud Brady together, and con sequently never saw Dorscy pay Brady any money, or give him an envelope with money lu it." To Complete the Census. Washington, D.
