Cracksmen at the Brewing Company's Office. GET AWAY WITH $250. Blow Open the Safe and Help Themselves. Also Empty Three Bottles of Beer. TAKE THEIR TIME TO IT. Rifle Every Drawer in the Office. . Money Box Found in a Box Car, but No Clew. The office of the Rock Island Brewery company on Moline avenue was visited by cracksmen last night supposedly between 12:31) ana 1 o'clock and thoroughly ransacked Two safes were opened, the larger one in the cashier's ollice by means 01 giant powder, the doors blown from it ana a strong steel cash box taken across the street to the Rock Island yards and opened in a box car and the contents, consisting of 1206 in cash and f 44 in notes taken. Tie burglars escaped, and there are no clews whatever 01 them. Lay pf the Lend. The building containing the offices of the company is situated on the eastern portion 01 the grounds in which is sitnated the former Wag ner Atlantic Brewing company's plant. 11 is a 2-story brick and the offices occupy the front portion, while the rear part and basement contain the bottling department. On the second floor and in the north end of the building Albert Zwicker, Jr., cashier for the company, has his sleeping apartments. Mr- Zwicker attended the theatre last nght and reached bis rooms about 11 o clock He retired immediately. He was aroused sometime later by ao explos ive sound, but as be is accustomed to the noise of the bumping of cars in the railroad yards on the opposite side of the street, he supposed the disturbance was nothing unusual other than incidental to the switch ing, and he went to sleep again. WAS A THOROUGH JOB. Tne Burglar Take Th.lr Time and Hake Tfceinselvesat Home. The burglars were evidently pro fessionals. They knew their busi ness thoroughly and went about it with deliberation rather than haste What they wanted they helped tnemseives to, ana were determined that there would be no reason for reproach among themselves after ward that they had permitted any. thing to escape, iney entered through the bottling department at the southeast corner of the building by prying a window Here they paused to imbibe of three bottles of beer, and then en tering the oflie they ransacked everything thorougly, opened all the desk drawers, took down the letter tiles and examined the contents; they opened without difficulty the safe in the bookkeeprs' office, and finding only books there, looked them over and then exaimned the other offices and records. In the cashier's de partment is a safe with dimensions of 6x4 feet, finding it securely locked, they bored a hole in the top through the plate and plaster of paris inner linings and placing therein giant powder, attached a fuse and retired, . apparent ly, a safe distance, to await operations. The explosion blew the doors completely from the hinges and tossed them a distance of 10 feet. smashing into a desk, breaking the legs off and shoving it against railing with such force as to bend and almost crush it. The effect of the shock was to force the safe against the side of the wall leaving a deep indenture and breaking the glass in the window near by. Took the Caah Baa. The safe open the cracksmen re moved the cash box and after drink iog three more bottles of beer in the office of the president left the emp ties ana at-parea. J he , box was found in an empty freight car in the Koclt jiand yards this morning. It bad contained $250, of which $35 was in a Rock Inland check and $9 in a Davenport bank check, the remain der in cash, and all this was of course taken. An anger, brace and bit and two chisels were found in the office and they were identified this morn ing as belonging to the Weber blacksmith shop on Twenty-fonrth street below the viaduct, which, it was dii-coveted. had been entere during the night. Tins; or rnr nrsuiLART. Tha Clock aad Cashier Z wicker's Story af The time of the burglary is fixed at about 12:45 o'clock, as the clock immediately over the safe had stop ped at that 'time, which is supposed t have been a result of the explo sion. When Cashier Zwicker awoke at 5:30 this morning he had forgotten the disturbance during the night. bat the misplacement of a couple of boards which served as a temporary covering over an opening which had been ; mode ,in the arrangement of steam pipes, hastily brought it to mind. . His-" suspicions now aronsed that . something wrong had hap pened to shake the building, as the boards' indicated, he horned to the first floor,-to find everything in a state 01 cnaos. tie at once noticed the police bv telephone and Officers Schaab and Kramer were ssnt to the scene. There is no clew whatever to the burglars, and as trains leave the city both ways daring the early morning, they had abundant opportunity to get out of the city. Fleblc's Views. Locksmith Fiebig states that there was enough giant powder placed in the safe to blow up two or three safes, the load being fonr times what was necessary to accomplish the opening of the double doors. The wonder to him is that greater dam age was not done. As it was. he found cracked windows 40 feet from where the safe stood and a silver dollar on the floor completely black ened by the explosive. Jn view of the quantity of powder used, he does not regard the cracksmen as old- timers. WILLIAM BELL DEAD. Aa Old Settler sod es-OffleUI Die at To. ledo Yesterday.
