Level-Headed Correspondent Gives Good Hint Regarding Railroads. rMltorS.in Antonio I.Mit. It Is strange that lending men nnd cap italists of San Antonio do not exert themselves to procure for this city some more railroad facilities In order to enjoy lower freight rates and more direct access to tho highway of tho world the in. The amount of money now pro posed to bo spent for n sewerage system (the advisability of which Is yet ques tionable) or may be even one-fourth of It nnd co-operation with tho Inhabitant? of other places along a projected line would probably bring tho St. Louis and Texas narrow gauge railroad to our doors, which could be built nnd operated cheaper than any of tho two roads now touching hero. This railroad, coming from St. Louis, enters Texas at Toxnr- knnn, runs through the counties of Howie, Morris, Titus, Camp, (crossing Last Line and Hcd lllver railroad ut Pittsburgh), Upchtir, (crossing Texas and l'aoillo railroad at itlg Sandy), Smith, (crossing Missouri, Kansas nnd Texas railroad nt Tvleri. Henderson. Navarro, fcrossliur Houston and Texas Central railroad at Coralcann), Hill, MoLennun. (crossing west brnneh of Houston and Texas Cen tral railroad and Mlssomi and Pueblo railroad at Waco und Gulf, Colorado and Sainu Fe railroad at McOregor), to Gatesvllle, in Coryell county, and Is seeking for connection with Mexico. This connection could not be had cheap er ami Hotter man nv uuiiuing irom jicuregor, via Jieiton, ueorgeiown, Austin, J.ooklinrt, Lining, Helena, uak tIUc. to n lunotlon with the Texas nnd Mexican railroad at San Diego; and, furthermore, by building n cro3& brnnch road from San Antonio via Floresvllle and Helena to some suitable nolnt on tho Gulf, sn'd railroad, as well as this city, would have their own harbor and be independent of Galveston nnd her wharf company. The St. Louis nnd Texas railroad is at pres ent n little In trouble, llnnnclally, In consequence or tnu late tuuiuio in rail road stocks: but as money is easy at llnnnoinl centres this condition cannot last long, and it mayjustly bo presumed inai ine prospect lor u tiroiitauio exten sion of the road would have an InlUi ence for ihe better. There Is a project on foot now, which may soon uecoino a reality, mat. is 10 ex tend the Trinity nnd Snblne railroad (nhtclLls now tlnlshed from Trinity to will be puslied farther without delay), to jieiton, ami iy ellecting a connection with this road tho St. Louis and Texas railroad would become then tho main lumber carrier for Southern Texas. I could dwell at length on the great advantages which could bo derived from the building of said rond by all In terested, but fear to occupy to much of your valuable spaco. O. M. Ground fireiklng. To-morrow at 2 p. in. the ceremony of ground-breaking for the Second Baptist church will take place on Nnrp stn et. There will be a procession from the old church, on Live Oak street.

I, The operalio concert" at Turner hall last night wes attended by one of the largest and best paying audiences of the season, many having to pay for the privllego of stnnd'ng up. The singing wns In some foreign lingo, nnd finely executed, seemed to be heartily enjoyed by thoso who could understand what the artists were singing about. Many In the audience who have heard Miss Hauk bclore do not think sho did her best last night. Tho programmo wns rather too light for the calibre of the Blngen. Miss Hauk nnd company will sing again to-night nt Turner hall, nnd If you wish to secure n Bent, call at Itlscho's early. It Is a general dcslro that Miss Hnuk will sing an Fngl'sb. ballad to-night.

St. Louis, March 3. Prentiss Tiller, Money Clerk for tho Pnclilo Express company here, whoso father Is a Louls- vlllo detective, disappeared about o'clock yesierdny afternoon, nnd taking with him one ortwo valises full of money pnekages, tho total amount being very nearly S7.",000. It Is tho custom oftho company to keep the money clerk and day watchman on duty In tho olllce on Sunday, the door being secured by chnlit locks and no one being admitted, except tho messengers who arrive on tho morn ing trnins Willi packages nml linvo money packages to turn oyer. Yesterday after noon Tiller was on duty, nnd thn wntrli. man icmnlned In tho back room tending to the door, the front doors being locked. About 2 o'clock tho watchman went out to lunch, leaving three messengers Bil ling uy mo siuvo. mine no was gone. Tiller went out and returned wllh a stranger whom the messengers took to to be a new clerk or messenger. Tiller and tho stranger went Into the front olllcu nnd were thought no mora of. uno nour inter i liter camo into the back ollleo to wash his hands, and remarked to the wnlchmnn who had returned, that ho believed ho would go and get some lunch. Wiping his hands, ho re-entered the front olllce nnd wns not seen ngnln. Half an hour afterward tho watchman walkedinto the front ollleo to get some thing nnd wns surprised to llnd the front door unlocked and Tiller nbscnt. Ho pokooilt to tlio messcliccrs who were slltlng,by the stove In the rear, nnd they loui nun oi tue stranger, this manned 111 in. and ho summoned the Superintend ent, who soon discovered that about a Imsliel of money packages were missing. Tho detectives have learned nolhlngyet. It. G. llutler, agent of tho company, says there can bo no doubt tho man brought to tho ollleo by Til ler was n confederate, and that ho und Tiller took all t lie nackaires from the Bare. examined them and selected such as they desired or were easiest to dispose or. Soveral envelopes wcro found which had been cut nt one end, but ns they con tained checks they were not taken. Other packages containing sliver wrro also lelt. Duller thinks, however, thero must unvo ueen nearly a nusiieixir pack ages taken, and that thero wns probably n third confederate on tho outside, ns thu weight of the packages which con tained gold coin would bo too heavy to have been easily and quickly handled by two pcrsoiiB. Tiller nnd his pal must hnvu worked over an hour preparing their plunder, during which time tho watchman entered the front ollleo In which they wcro engaged, two or three i tunes, but It was easy for the confeder ate to hide, himself behind tho closo boarded part of the messenger's pens, In which they did their work. When every thing was ready the front door was un locked and Tiller went to the rear room ostensibly to wash his hands, but really to learn the position of the watchman and messengers, nnd finding them favor able to the safe (fx It of his confederate, ho gavo the signal to go. Shortly after tho watchman went to tho front olllce, nnd lliullng the front door unlocked, and Tiller not present, ho wakened Mr. Uut ler, also Mr. Fuller, general manager of the company.and they came to the olllce nt once. While It wns evident that a robbery had been committed, they could not get Into the safe to ascertain what .was missing, as Tiller had taken off the ieys, and It wag hoc till after midnight that the safe was opened and much later before Information of tho matter was given out. The police wcro promptly notified, however, and telegrams sent to the conductors of trains on all railroads leading out of tho city, giving a de scription of Tiller. It Is learned this morning that Tiller brought to tho ollleo on Saturday afternoon a largo leather va lise, which ho put in the basement. It could not bo found to-dny, nnd from this fact It Is believed that preparation "or the robbery was committed on Sat urday. A visit to his room, 1122 Olive street, to-day, disclosed n number of un used envelopes and printed Blips of the company, and ns ho could have had no Honest purpose in having these In his room, Mr. llutler thinks he has been rob bing the company for some time. Tiller wns n young man, 23 years old, and was formerly with tho American Express at Louisville. Hehes been with tho Pa clllo company two years, nnd had Jio entire coulldcnceof Ills employers, being a quiet man and attentive to h's bust Hess. He Is described ns 25 years old, lirown moustache nnd hair, pimply face, unobstruslvo features, slender build, weight uuout U") pounds, neat dress and quiet manner. His confederate Is en tirely unknown, the express people not having the slightest conjecture ns to who ho Is. Tho company offered a re wind or 00u for tho arrest of the man and the return of the money, and If the capture Is made he will be prosecuted to tho full extent of the law. London Streets at Night.
