The whole stofy of the Codat* Rapids end of the affair tbgeiher with a letter frotn Thos. fii Lantry is thus given In the Cedar Rapids Republican: One evening last week aboutSo'clock Miss Elizabeth Statny, a maiden lady about 45 years old, who owns a nice home at 613 Second street west, and who has in her wardrobe the most ele* gant dresses, appeared at .the registry window at the postbfflce dressed in men's clothes and presenting a notice addressed to Gottlieb Schuerle, claimed she' was that personage and asked for the registered letter that was in the office for that gentleman. On being questioned she said the letter was from the Algona State bank. Postmaster Charles had received a letter from the postmaster at Algona requesting that the letter be given to none other than the one to whom it was addressed, and being somewhat in doubt refused to turn the letter Over. The arrest of the woman followed and she has been held at the police station until yesterday morning when she was arraigned before United States Commissioner Stewart on the charge of receiving, opening and destroying letters addressed to others, and was held to await the action of the federal grand jury in the sum of $300. She furnished bail and was released. Postmaster Charles notified the Algona people of what happened immediately following the arrest of Miss Stamy and yesterday heard from them. As predicted in the Republican this letter explains Miss Stamy 's motive for attempting to get the registered letter by Impersonating Gottlieb Schuerle - and shows that she was working a very smooth game and one that might have worked. The letter is as follows: ALGONA, Iowa, Dec. 2, 1895.— Alex. Charles, Esq., Cedar Rapids, Iowa — Dear Sir: Yours of the 30th ult. referring to the Gottlieb Sohuerle registered letter which we sent, will say. It was sent by request of Theo. Chrlschilles of this place. Some time ago this Gottlieb Schuerle gave power of attorney to Mr, Chrischilles to secure for ' him an inheritance left him by his mother in Germany. Since that time Mr. Chris- chilles has learned of Mr. Schuerle's father's death, which will entitle the young man to an increase in his inheritance. This happened sometime 1'ast summer, in June I. think. At that time this Gottlieb Schuerle disappeared and Mr. Chrischilles has been looking for him ever since. Some time ago he had a notice published in the papers saying that there was $10,000 left to this Schuerle and that the money was in one of the Algona banks, which was not so, but he thought in this way to find his man. About a month ago we received a letter from this party in Cedar Rapids representing himself to be Gottlieb Schuerle and asking that . the money be forwarded to him at the ad•dress given by the registered letter. We handed that letter to' Mr, Chris- chilles and he answered it but never heard from it again, A few days ago we received another letter from the same party still claiming the money, So with Mr. Chrischilles* consent we sent the registered letter which you have with the request that the party be watched, suspecting him to be a fraud. If you can learn from this party what they know of Gottlieb Schuerle, if anything, and in that way find him, -you will do a favor. Mr. Chrischilles fears that the young man has met with foul play somewhere. He was at Wesley, a iittlervillage about ten miles from here, when last Heard from. If you learn anything please let us know about it, and if we can be of any assistance to you we will do all that we can.
