New York, Oct. 21.—George Arml tage. the missing messenger of the Bank of New Amsterdam, walked into the Tenderloin police station and gave himself up. The detectives tried to get him to make a statement, but he declined to discuss his ease. Armitage only had $31.40 on him when arrested. After he disappeared drafts and collections representing many thousands of dollars were re turned to the bank by a mysterious colored woman, who has not yet been found by the police. Armitage's accounts, according to the bank officials, show a shortage of $"900. of which $5000 is covered by a Fidelity bond. Armitage subsequently made a re markable confession, which set the police scurrying after four supposed accomplices, who. as alleged, had in turn robbed the dishonest messenger of practically all the money he had stolen. Armitage said that he had met a woman, whom lie knew as Marie, at a roadhouse which they both frequent ed. She was a friend of the piano player in the resort. The wife of the piano player and a violinist, who also fnr.ithed munie in the plr.ee, and A-mitage, who was introduced to the party by Marie, became friendly dur ing a month's intimacy. Armitage said that after he stole the money he g t drunk and was unable to return the cheeks. Marie and the wife of the. piano player agreed to do it for him, and taking the bank wallet to Brook lyn, hired a negro woman to return it to the hank. Armitage said that as the woman left him. Marie suggested that she had bettor take charge of the stolen money for safety. Armitage said lie gave up the money, and the woman never came hack. It is be lieved the police have the names of the entire party and will arrest four. The woman who returned the $50, 000 worth of drafts taken by George Armitage from the Bank of New Am sterdam, when the messenger disap peared so mysteriously, according to the Journal and Advertiser, is Mrs. Isabel Quagh. colored, a dressmaker of Brooklyn. Mrs. Qungh claims that the package containing the drafts was turned over to her young son by a young, well dressed woman, and that the youth was given a dollar to con vey it to his mother, who sent the package to the bank by express. of in on of ed of of it. at is REPORT ON TRADE.

The same influence is Invaluable in facilitating the hand ling of crops, crcciing buildings and other outdoor work.
