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."

had not heard a sutlkient demand from
tlie people concerning an extra session of
the Legislature to consider the repeal of
the present statute regulating the rights

ists to become frightened at the recent
opinion of the Supreme Court touching
this question.
