Judge Tuthlil ruled It out as improper
and told the jury to take no notico of what

The springing of this sensation has
caused comment. Ono phase thereof is
that McLaughlin belugMrs. Foy's brother

embarrassed In telling her story to the
jury as she would hardly llko to crlmlnato

that McLaughlin Is iu Ireland, where ha

given Incriminating testimony against
Foy, not because hu was a participant lu
the crime. Taking of testimony has not
yet begun. '

KOU1II IIKSD, Intl., Dec. 8. The South
Dcnd National bank, ono of tho largest
banks lu northern Indiana, has been
robbed of over $15,000. Thu bold deed was
committed In broad daylight while hun
dreds of people were on the street, and the
robbers succeeded lu getting away with
tholr rich booty without leaving the
slightest clue. Chief Uenjamtu Hose was
ntonce Informed, and set his officer at
work Immediately, but so far no clue of
any reliance lias been obtalued. Every
train or other means of leaving tho city is
carefully watched, and tho olllcers hope to
obtnin somo tangible duo soon. Chiof
Hoso beilovcs there wero no less than four

Hie Cashier I'lchs Up n Chisel.
Cisshier Myrln Campbell remained ai
tho bank, which is iu tho heart of the
city, until all tho employes wore gone.
He then, ns he supposed, locked tho middlo
door of the big vault and left everything
lu tlio usual shape at tho noon recess. It
was llftcen minutes nftor VI o'clock when
he left. At ten minutes of one he returned,
entering by tho front street door. lie
passed down the corridor nlongstdo the
cashier's, collectors' ami other ilcsks and
turned to his left to enter the door open
ing bnck of this lino of continuous desks.
As ho was about to enter tlio door his foot
struck n chisel. Ho picked it up, but
thought nothing of tho matter as the
plumbers hnd been in tlio building nnd
had passed by where ho found the chisel,
ho thinking they had dropped it.
lie Suddenly ".Smells a Mice."
Ten initiates later Assistant Cashier
Drown called his attentlou to tho chisel.
Mr. lirowu's suspicious wero aroused to
such nu extent thnt an investigation was
Immediately instituted nud the men found
a rear window open, tho back door un
locked nnd thu door between the directors'
room aud thu counting room mutilated.
A rush was then made for the vault. The
door was as Mr. Campbell left it. They
swung it back and examined tho snfe
within. A glunco showed thnt money had
been takeu, but they could not tell how
much. Tho police wero nt otice notified,
nnd during tho afternoon business went
ou about as usual. No particular effort
vtas mado to determluu tho exact amount
until thu day's balances were made up.
And the Hoodie Was 10,000.
And then it wns developed thnt the
robbers hud secured $15,000. There is
littlo doubt but the bank has been
watched for several days, perhaps weeks.
It Is located on North Michignn street,
and has au immense pinto glnss front.
Tho cashier Is located less than ten feet
from tho front ami his desk , books and
currency aro always in plain .sight; from
across tho street one tan sec clear through
to tho directors' room nnd till over the
counting room, tho vault doors being iu
plain vlow. At tho doors nud windows
aro heavy curtains, but theso wero tip at
time of the robbery nud every portion of
thu large counting room was fully ex
posed, with u btrenm of people continual
ly passing on cither side of tho street.

South Dcnd robbery. Tho man on whom
suspicion rests is thu notorious gold brick
