AVIttrock , whose ancst nnd confession vvns
sent last nl Rlil , lovonled the htdlDR place of
a box containing a largo sum of money , which
was bronchi to this eltv by Cook and con-
( enlcd by him and thico otliei men In nbain
near his house.
hi. Lot-is , Dec. 2P.-A special from Leny-
cir.vorthsays : "H was learned nt a late hour
last night ( bat Dclectlvo I'inkci-
ton came to this city in response
to a summons tiom Mis. Witlrock , .lini
Cumniings1 mother , who Informed lilm
( I'lnkeiton ) that she had tmpoitant Informa
tion for him. When I'lnkerton arrived at
Mrs. Wltlrock's house Im was Handed c\-
proja pncknces containing SU'.J.OOO in cm-
roncy , which \ \ Ittrock had sent to his fam
ily alter the lobboiy , < - ( . ndinc word by the
messenger who bi ought tlm money to seciete
It for lil in as lie bad shot a man In
Chicago and told them that It
would bo attached for damages
and that be was obliged to leave Chicaco on
account of this shooting. The money had
not been disturbed and was in tlio original
wrappers. I'inkorton will probably remain
hero during to moriovv. It Is supposed that
\Vittrock , during one of his visits here , hid
laige sums ot the money stolen and that he
will now turn it ovu to the detectives.
There has already been $ r ,000 of the stolen
money recovered.
Mrs. Wlltiock was Induced by a rcpoiter to
tell what slm knew of the case , as her son's
connection vvlh ( It could not be concealed.
Uetwcen broken sobs she admitted Hint Fred
bad participated in the robbmy , but would bo
icleased , as lie had confessed all to the do-
tt'dlvos. She said that shindy after tlm rob-
beiy Oscar Cook came to Lciucnworth and
visited bor ono evening and after talklnc to
her for some time , said 1'u'd was in trouble ;
lliat Imhnd madoa Inigo sum of money in a
wheat deal In Chicago and had some dllli-
culty with the broker over the money
winch ended bv his shooting the latter ,
and that he had to llco from tlm country and
wanted his mothei to take care of his money
until Him board from him tuither. This ho
agreed to do and the money was leltlnher
possession. Some time after tills another
\oung man who lives In this city , but whose
identity she refused to divulge , called and
lelt another packnto ot money , and Hint on
two oilier occasions two other joung men
called at dilfoient times and left money
which they said bail come from fled. When
asked If she know the amount of the sum total
him nald she did not ; that they were Inuc
packages but slm had never counted It , be
lieving Implicitly in Kted's story and think
ing she was aiding him by cailng lorhis
piopcrty and not dicamlng that he had not
come by it honestly. She had no occasion to
use nny ot it , having money of her own.
When asked how the detectives happened to
bo bcie searching bci house , slm said ; " Whuu
1 Heard of Ified's airost 1 immediately wioto
to the uxpiess company telling tiiciu of tlm
X money and leiiuestlng them to come to Lc.u-
cnworlli , and that is undoubtedly the icasou
why they mo here. "

An Intel view with 'tobcit Pinkeiton was

' 1 ho article is entitled , "Locksley Hall nnd
the Jubilee. " It Is mainly devoted to the
contention that Tennyson's despondent iiineo
finds a sufficient lolmke In the legislative
achievements of the lass fifty yeai . 'I he list
which Gladstone gives Is imposing. Slavciy
has been abolished ; the rigois of the old
cilmlnnl code have disappeared ; the com
bination of laws which pioventcd tin ) woik-
Ing population from obtaining the best prices
for their laboi has been lepoaled ; the abuses
of the pool law have been done away with ;
tlm laborer has a better sccutlty foi
life and limb , and fuller assmanco of the
compensation of survivors in case ot death ;
the scandals ot labor in mines and fadoiles
have been removed or reduced ; the people
have good schooli , and aio tindci local ob
ligation lo use the piivilege ; postage has
been cheapened , and Information thiough n
frco pres , which was formerly cut otf fiom
the multldndc by astilngent tax , is now at
easy command , limy aie moie lightly taxed
and taxes aie paid to the state foi needful
government Instead ot to tlm wealthy classes
for enhancing the pilce of niticlcs and in-
Iciest. Added to these are the
removal of religious disabilities , the abolition
of chinch rates , leform In tlm laws ot mai-
rlage , nbrogntion of ono of the university
tests , henetits confeircd on farmeis by the
ground and game act tlmiepealot the malt
tnx- , Hogging abolished In tlmaimy nnd the
piossgang in the navy , pui chase has ceased
to be tlm means of obtaining militaiy promo

opened to charactei and talent without dis
tinction of class , and light has bc unthougii
Vflth a checkered history , to as eit itself
against wiong in the government of the
hisli people.
The article closes with this epitaph foi
Tennyson's newMilnme : "Justice does not
require , nay , rathei slm foi bids , that the jubi
lee of tlm queen should bo mailed by tingle
tones. "
Gladstone , however , puts in saving dames
wliicli point out that tlm second "Locksley

matlc and not to bo taken ng in evciy rcpect
repiesentlng the coin lotions of the poet.
France In Peaceful .vlood.
VinsNA , Doc. 2i M. Clemoncean , the
Fiench statesman , who \Isiting Vienna
to attend his brother's wedding , lias been In-
teulowed respecting the possibility of wat
between Krance and Germany. Among
othei things ho said : "There can be no war
between Tianco and Germany unless Ger
many makes tlm Hist attack , because every
icsponslblo Frenchman is determined that
Fiance shall offer no provocation. i.ven it
Itussla and Gciiuany shall tight , France
would lomaln passive. It would icqulre
gioss piovocation indeed to louse Fiance to
war. Of coiiise Fiance will refuse to dis
arm. It must ho admitted that Franco his

If the senate intended that it should go

at once. Xovv tlicio is no telling when it will

nuuitoilous it may be if it is allowed to lest

though It Is n contciencc icporl and thciefmu
a pi Ivilcfiod matter , it has not passed either
house. . It has a tcnlble gauntlet to run be-
foie it can become n law. Tncro Is only ono
advantage in tlio position it Is now in ; being
a unilcreiico icpoit it must be passed in its
