she entered the basement department ef
Lipman. Wolfe & Co. store with a silk
dress which she was returning for
cash. She gave the manager of the
department, Sam Well, a note alleged to
be from her sister.. The note read:
"Dear Sir: Am returning this dress
by my sister as my daughter tied very
suddenly under an operation and I have
no use for it. Please give my sister
a refund for It, as I paid $22.60 for
the dress. Mrs. William Smith, Castle,

Miss Walker. In the scuffle that fol
lowed Miss Walker tore the coat from
the fugitive, but Mrs. Ortel carried her
45 years lightly and continued her flight.
She ran up Broadway and was over
taken again near Alder street.
-. The woman detective, though breath
less and weak from her run, was able
to hold Mra Ortel until a policeman
arrived. She was taken to headquar
ters, where she refused to talk of her
Shortly afterwards she attempted to
lose a key In a lavatory at the police
station. This was recovered and proved
to be a key to a room in the Imperial
hotel, where the woman had registered
Sunday. In her room silk clothing from
Portland department stores and from
big department stores all over , the
