Sioux Falls.—Thinking himself
alone In the mailing room of the Sioux.
Falls postoffice early In the morning,
William H. Tyler, a local mall clerk,
oened and extracted mo-ey from one
letter and began the opening of an
other when Interrupted, according to
testimony of V. C. Bhtie, postal Infpec
tor for tkla district, at Tyler's hear
ing before United States Commission*
er D. J. Conway, on a charge of pil
fering the United 8tates malls. Tyler
was arrested by a deputy United
States marshal following the com
plaint, made against him by officials
of the postoffice department.
Both of the letters which It is claim
ed Tyler opened and one of which he
Is said to have robbed of a portion of
lta contents were decoys Which had
been mailed by Postal inspector Batie
Just previous to the time the^ clerk
came on duty. Previous small Iowa
in the malls had led the officials to be
lleVe that someone! either In the lo
cal office or this district had been
tampering With letters. Inspector Ba
tie, with a deputy marshal and anoth
er official of the postoffice, after the
mailing of the decoy letters, watched
developments from secret rooms that
give an outlook pnto the mailing floor
of the poatofflce. Tyler was seen to
pick out the two letters, both of which
were addressed to parties in Iowa, lay
them aside while he sorted other mall,
aad then, with a pencil, opened flaps
of the envelope, taking out the money,
according to the testimony introduced
by wltneses for th* government at
the hearing. One of the letters con
tained one $2 bill, two 91 bills and ft
SOcint piece. The other held two 91
bills aad a 50-cent-piece. After taking
the money from the first envelope, Ty
ler, it Is alleged, replaced Ml but the
80 cents. All the bills and coins were,
marked by the inspector, previous to
mailing, for future identification. The
letters, the first of which had been ad
dressed to "Miss HaHey Davis, Shel
don, a., and the second to "Mrs. Lucy
Tyndall, Cedar Rapids, Ja./' had keen
