Registered Letter which Leads to Her Arrest. The ann6uticement some'months ago •that there was $10,000 lying in 'Algona awaiting one Gottlieb Schuerle caused considerable of a sensation. But it was .nothing compared to the sensation later developments are causing. .-Since I receiving the money Mr. ^Chrisohillei has Started" various inquiries' in the hop'e.of'getting some trace 'of the lost' Gottlieb, and some weeks ago met re- n; • sponse in shape of a letter from Cedar Rapids addressed to "Algona State Bank.,, Germany." The letter came to the bank and was turned over to Mr. Chrisohilles. It is written in,a curious combination of bad English 'and bad German and signed "Gottlieb." In it is afrequest' that 4 the r money be sent. There was enough in ttie letter to suggest a possibility that the real Gottlieb had been'found and ,Mr. Chrischilles .wrote to him in German. In reply' another letter came to.'the bank, addressed and signed as before, To this Mr. Chrischilles answered' in a registered letter and instructions' were sent to the postmaster at Cedar Rapids to thoroughly identify the person calling for it. The outcome of this is told in the following dispatch to the Register of Sunday: CEDAR RAPIDS, Nov. 30.—Special: The authorities here are puzzled over a very remarkable case. Night before last a registered letter reached the postoffice for Gottlieb Schuerle. It was accompanied by a note from the postmaster at Algona asking Postmaster Charles of this city to be very sure that the letter was delivered to the right party. Yesterday a notice was sent to the address on the envelope notifying Sohuerle that a registered letter was in the postofflce for him, Last night about 8 o'clock Miss Elizabeth Stammy, a maiden lady about 45 years old, and fixed well financially, called at the postofflce dressed in men's clothes, handed in the notice and asked for the letter. Suspecting something wrong the letter was not given her. An investigation was set on foot, which resulted in the arrest of the woman and a confession from her that she had been to the office in men's clothes. The Algona authorities have been notified of the occurrence and Postmaster Charjes , has placed the matter in the bands of Chief Inspector Stewart of Chicago. Startling developments are looked for.
