San Franciaco, Aug. 7.—The Selby
Smelting and Lead com|iany has been
robbed of $280,000 worth of gold bul-
lion. The theft occurred some time
Monday night and waa not diacovered
until yesterday morning. The thieve,
tunneled from outside the building
under the vault at the Selby Aorks,
which are located on the buy shore,
about 30 miles from Sun Francisco.
They got away with nearly 1,300
pounds of fine gold, worth $2U an
ounce, without leaving a truce of
their identity behind. The robbery
ia the most successful and remark-
able ever accomplished on the Pacific
coast and w^s evidently the work of
(killed mechanics. The whole affair
was most skillfully planned aud a,
skillfully executed. It is supposed
that when the robbers secured their
loot they loaded it into a boat that
wu, waiting nnd disappeared in the
fog that had come over San Francisco
bay. In their haste to get away they
left two gold liars worth nearly $50,-
000 lying on the bank at the water',
Probably preparatory engineering
extending over several weeks wa*
done before the robbery could be ac
coinpllshed. Clone to the wall of th,
building in which the vault ia located
iliaft waa sunk lielow the founds
tion Then a tunnel waa run to the
vault and holes were bored in .the
iron floor until an aperture suffi-
ciently large to admit a man was
made. It was then easy work to
pass down the trensure into the tun'
nel and h>ad it into a boat. The rob-
bers even took the precaution to
iprlnkle red pepper in the tunnel in
order to make thing, aa uncomfort-
able a, possible for any one whe
might uttempt to pursue them.
There were four fine gold brick*
in the vault which the robber* loot-
ed. Knch was ten Inches long, fite
inches wide and four incht-s In
height. All these bricks were IWrt fine
and worth $20.60 per ounce. In addi-
tion to this there were stolen from
the bullion vault crude gold in all
hlinjies and sizes and some of It in
bars of different lengths.

There is a theory that the plot wa,
hatched in the state prison at San

to the fact that "Sir" Harry West wood
Cooper, the notorious convict, went
to the neighborhood of the smelting
works immediately after his release
from the penitentiary. Dick Phelan,

The clews so far obtained strengthen

Chicago, Aug. S.—After a visit to
Preaident McKinley at Canton Senator
Cullon says there I, not likely to be
any general tariff legislation next
winter, but that some of the pending
commercial treaties ought to pas, the
senate. The senator also talked of
government policy in other lines.
Asked aa to the story thst Senator
Hanna had gone to Canton to get aid
from the preaident in settling the
steal strike, Senator Cullom said: "I
know there i, nothing in that report.
Senator Hanna, President McKinley
nnd myself talked of the strike ss wa
did other matters of current interest,
but there was no suggestion from
Senator Hanna at any time that he
was mixing up in the matter at all."
Speaking of the action likely to be
taken by congreea at the next session,
Senator Cullom said:
We shall have to enact some letfslstlna
regarding the Philippines, but not much.
I tfclnk. Porto Rico Is now all disposed
of. and there Is nothing to do for It.
As far as Cuba Is concerned. It has ac-
cepted the American proposals, and wa
have nothing more to do than let It alone
and allow It to work out Its own salva-
tion. From all the Information I can
get, the feeling Is growing stronger In
Cuba every day In fsvor of Anal annexa-
tion to this country It will grow stronger
and stronger as the Cubans find thetr
neighbors In Porto Rico enjoying the ben-
efits of free trade with this country,
which they are debarred from.
There are some things we ought to da
which will amount to a partial revision
of the tariff. There are present pending
before the senate some ten commercial
treaties. These treaties are all of a
reciprocity character, and tf they are
ratified will amount to a change In the
tariff with the countries with which they
are made. It seems to me a. If It would
be wise to ratify at least some of them.
A feeling has grown up abroad that the
United States Is disposed to act In what
msy be called a hoggish manner In Its
trade relations and if these reciprocity
treaties can be drawn so as to be for the
mutual advantage of both countries en-
tering Into them I think It would be ben-
eficial all around.
