aiys cashier Pratt made a full confes
sion , nnd took him tn the spot in hia
father's barnyard where ho had buried
6,000 in uold , taken by him the day
before the robbery. Pratt lays the
blame nt the door of Dr. Scott , who ,
ho anji led him astray , taught him
to plaTpnker , etc. . Pratt ia the son
of the Ivowauoo postmaster , 'is nj
teacher in n Sundiy school , nnd wns
thought to bo above suspicion. IV
acorns now that forged checks to tho'
amount of § 15,000 were , paid by him
The allegation ia that Scott procured
the chock ? , Pratt forged \ the
signatures , nnd "Welch turned
them in , taking certificates
of deposit in ordnr not to excite sus
picion. In addition to th * SO 01)0
recovered from Pratt $3,500 wore
recovered from Welch , and the theory
of the detectives ia that this ia about
nil that waa token nt the time. Pos
sibly S 1,000 moro were spent by the
robbera. The belief la that Pr.ut
cooked up the hooka so us to make it
appear $20,000 were taken in order to
clear up all hia shortcominga at oner.
What firat attracted attention to
Pratt waa the finding of five toli-grama
from him in Welch's vnliso , and Scott
waa discovered by a cautioug letter
written by him to Welch at Peoria
and in Welch's absence op.'iicd by hia
wifa and turned over to the

in St. Louis Monday nii-ht ,

sent to Kowauou to-morrow. He alno
made n confession. Ho puts the blumo
on Pratt and Welch , Pratias the chief
instigator. Ho aliegeB that hu know
of the plot , but decided not to take
part in the robbery , and was jeered by
Pratt for cowardice. Ho says ho got
none of the money , and the detectives
believe the statement is true , and that
ho can only bo convicted aa uccosaory.
