Tba fact 'thai ha was sn absconder waa not known or suspaotad until aararal daya a,ftr Mr. Pall-man's Pall-man's Pall-man's ratnrn.from Euro pa on Aug. 7, and than all bopo of arresting tha f ugitlra waa gone, for ba bad sailad for Euroy, and waa at tba movant movant of .tba dUeoery of bis dishonesty far war from tba reach of extradition treaties. This alone abows that An nail had contemplated tba robbery for some time, and bad selected tba moat opportune moment for executing bis wall matured plana. Tb woman mentioned la Tbi Timxs' dispatch dispatch last algbt, with whom Angall bad been en Intimate terms for so cue time, la Sadie Wli-son Wli-son Wli-son aa Inmate of Carrie Watson's bagnio. Sba came bare from New-York New-York New-York City a few months ago, and baa. aver sine led a life of pnblie sham. Ear people lire In New-York,' New-York,' New-York,' and are, it Is believed, quit respectable. An Interview with tb woman wh'olceepe th bouse of Hi-fame Hi-fame Hi-fame shows that Angall waa a frequent visitor there. Be went there to see Sadie, and peat considerable money oov bar, but gave bar no Jewels, as tb girl would not take them. The girl saya she loved Angell ; that he bad been smitten with ber in the street, and sought her out, saying aba resembled his dead wife. Be need to call vary often, and aba also visited his room at tha Palmer House, attired In ahort elothes, so as to make tha elevator boy think she waa a little girl boarding In the hotel. They were ia th habit of riding on tha Boulevard, Boulevard, where she would meet him after dusk. 6ba eald Angell was vary good to ber, but ah would not tab any. great sum of money from bim a ib thought it would b robbing bit eblld. II narer gar bar, ah aaya, more than 1300. Tba girl - xpres greet solicitude to know Angell's whereabouts, and says ah will go to ba If ah ean gat traaa of bim.-. bim.-. bim.-. This doe net appear to b tb first Irregularity Irregularity oa tb part of this oQelal of tb Pull maa Company. Ther Is a story to tba effect that a few year ago Angell was dlscov. ared to be behindhand la bla aoeouata about $2,300; that the officers of the eompeny when they found It out were very much worried and mortified. Under ordinary sirenmstan'cea a man would bare been die. ihera-ed. ihera-ed. ihera-ed. but this person waa an old and a rusted servant of the eompeny. lie was . allowed to remain. ' The deficit .waa. carried along oa tha books for soma little time, and waa finally wiped off by increasing bia pay ; that la, bla pay was raised so mueh. and the ln areaee waa devoted to clearing up this shortage. Rumors have,- have,- it appears, been In circulation for a abort time among bankers that things were not right in the Pullman Palace Car Company. Company. They bad, la some mysterious way, melt out tb stealings of Mr. AngelL On of them, who waa questioned aa to whether any of tb stock bad been hypothecated with, bim, aid that aon bad been. It was on of tb theories on th street that forged haree to a large amount had been Issnad by Mr, Angell during Mr. Pullmaa'a absence absence abroad, tba other name which was necessary necessary to complete them being forged by AngelL If anything of this aort baa been don It cannot be found out for a day or two, until tha bank-era, bank-era, bank-era, If there are any, with whom the shares have been hypothecated present them for verification. verification. Of course if Mr. Angell bad gone to a bank with a lot of shares aud wanted to borrow money on them, being ao well -known, -known, no question question would bav been asked., and he would have gotten the money. It waa supposed for a time that be bad lost on speculations, and some surmised that be bad been abort on wheat, and thcrathat be bad Been long on stocks. He was naturally thrown in the way of men who were la tb habit of speculating in stocks, and nothing would have been easier for bim than to have indulged in the same fascinating pattima. Thos who know bim best, however, assert positively that he never did anything of tb kind, And that be was slnirularly free from that form of excitement known a gambling, whether witb eerda or ia eoia or stocks. It la apparent that ba hadn't lost anything la tha way of speculation, but that all tha money which tba company had been deprived of went directly Into bla pocket and ia now with bim oa the ether aide of th water. Ther ia no doubt that th disappointment ia lovs which ba mat with last Spring bad much to do with unsettling bla mind, but yst it hardly supplied a euffielent cense for bla da-liberate da-liberate da-liberate rascality. The only explanation that can be advanced la that this disappointment disappointment bad mad bim extravagant, that a had squandered larger turns than hit alary would stand, and that eeatng that be must finally eome to grief be decided so eteel ail be could, secure a competence and decamp. Apart from wbat ba apent on railroad exeur-aione exeur-aione exeur-aione and wbat be lavished recently oa the girl 6d a WUaon. bla personal habite were not specially extravagant. It ia understood that immediate step were tahaa to see what could be done (or Mr. Angell's apprehension.
