Quinton was notified early Tuesday morning and hasten ed to the scene via auto, but was delayed a short time by a blowout which necessitated repairing and on Lis arrival the trained bloodhounds from Beatrice were on the scene and ready to take up the chase for the robbers. The bounds, securing a fresh scent, followed it closely and led the snerlff and members of the party to the town of Springfield, across the 1'iatte river in Sarpy county and at euee followed the trail to the Mis souri Pacific depot where they made a great demonstration as the traces c I the robbers seemed to end at that 1 !ace. The station agent was Interview ed and stated that early in the morn ing two strangers bad appeared at the depot with two brand new suit! cases and well dressed appearance, and had inquired as to the time of the f.rst train Into Omaha and upon learning they would have a short stay had slept in the depot until the arrival of the train and then boarded It for the metropolis. The description given cf them tallied closely with that of two strangers Hin in Iouisville Monday and was apparently that of the parties who pulled off the robbery at the Diers ctcre. The end of the trail was at Spring field as far as the direct pursuit of the robberB was concerned, and it will be necessary to comb the under world of Omaha in an effort to secure the trace of the robbers or the stolen property, and with the present de moralised condition of the police force In Omaha It will be a job that will be hard to carry out.
