Cobb Henkle's Saloon was robbed
hut Sunday night of about $175.
The person who committed the lar
ceny Was evidently somewhat ac
quainted with the pre mines, and
and awaited his opportunity with
a great deal of Judgement, Jack
CoBman Is night bartender, and clos
ed the saloon at 1 o'clock, and it was
some time after this that the thief
stepied tip on oue of the rods In front
of the glaiwi on the front door, which
was bent In the operation, and from
tliere he puhed open the trannom,
breaking the inttide fastening looms.
It was then an eay matter to crawl
through the opening aliove the door,
and etep down on another rod on
tlie innlde, the Intdde rod wm alno
bent. The night combination of tlie
safe hod not tieen turned on, aud
this fellow was evidently familiar
with the day lock. The safe was
ofiened and all the money, about $173
in all, was taken. There was one
sack containing about $35 in nickels
and dimes, and about $00 of tbe re
roainer was silver, $18 of tlie amount
belonged to Irvln Gentry, a Klon
dike dealer, and with this exception
the loss was Ccbb's alone. Tbe cash
drawer was alao opened and a few dol
lars in change was taken, or all the
drawer contained.
Tlie thief again alio wed his familiar
ity with the place by going out the
back way. Two doom had to be
gone through, but they were lock
ed on tlie Inside and the keys were In
the door. Aliout a half or three
quarter of an inch of snow had fal
len early in tlie evening, and the
burglar was easily tracked out the
back way. He tiptoed out to the
alley, and then went north, but
chauged hi mind, orfearing he might
meet some one, came back and out
around Hotel Lakevlew, and there
his tracks were mingled with a mul
titude of other tracks, aud were
soon lout sight of. The tracks were
easily diaeruable, as the shoes had
been haif-Moied, and the track a alio w.
ed quite plain.
Cobb takes his loss quite philoso
phically, and In a Joking way, said
lie would't care so much If the rascal
would come around and epeud a few
dollars during the dull peU.
W. D. Woodcock on learning of the
robbery Immediately went to his
safe, thinking perhaps It might have
been ruled too. He found that It
had been tampered with, but tbe
culprit bad not been able to work
the combination. Woodcock says
they would not have been paid for
their trouble If they had opentMl It.
Moral: It la a bad practice to
leave more than six bits tn a sheet
