Bank Robbery Explained. Assistant Cashier Gregory Confesses That He Alone Committed the ' Crime— The Monev Recovered. 1 BID IT HIM8KLI". D«TEn,Mich.,March7.— O.C, Gregory, assistant, cashier of the Dexter savings bank, has confessed to Detective liaker, of Detroit, that he himself stole the 18,800 from the vault of tho bank last Thursday, and that his story of being attacked by masked robbers is a fiction. What led to 'the confession, was tho finding of over |8QO concealed in a room back of the bantc. Tho detective suspected Gregory, who was arrested on Tuesday. ,, ":, '. Story of the Alleged llobbory. Last Thursday morning Cashier Newkirk found young Gregory lying upon the floor.pf the .bank vault apparently unconscious. His head was bruised. ThU helped out, his story that he had bean sandbagged by two masked men after they had compelled him to open the .Vault at the point of a pair of revolvers, Coin and bills were found scattered ajl'.oter the floor of the vault and i&, 11)8 was missing, including a bag oi.gold.j^nd a bag 'of silver coin. Gregory, appeared to be quite severely hurt, a|i(5''r.C 1 <K}vered slowly. Jn tho after- ,jy> appeared upon the streets was the hero of the .

But Gregory was not suspected by either bank officials or.-the people. The local officers were all at sea, although (750 offered for the capture of the crooks and the return of the money put them on their mettle. Found. Some C»»h. Monday night the bank people sent to Detroit for Detective Jlaker of the municipal service. It seems he at onoe suspected Gregory. At noon he searched an unused room in the rear of the bank offices. Behind a box up against the rear of the vault was found the two bags containing $311 in gold and 1888 In silver coin stolen from the vault. Gregory had not been at the bank during the entire forenoon, as he said he was in pain from his sandbagging. He was requested to step ov«r to the bank and did so at once, suspecting nothing. lie Contested. The trend of Baker's questions soon startled htm, however, and when the detective produced the bags of coin and charged him with the job the boy went all to pieces and con- fcwed. He said the remainder of the money, 13,109, was at home In a drawer. It waa found there shortly after. Gregory broke down and cried like a child when he met his father, He said he did not know why he did it, as he had no urgent use for the money. •He had thought of the scheme for some time. He waa at once arrested and taken to jail. Dabbled In Polities. A strange feature of the sensation Is that the young man's father, J. V. N. Gregory, was on Monday elected mayor of Dexter, defeating- H. Wirt Newkirk, cashier of the bank, under whom the young man worked. Young Gregory hlmsels was a candidate on the village democratic ticket for treasurer with his father, but was defeated. Be baa been treasurer of the Tillage for the last two years. Whether or not his accounts with the Tillage are straight is as yet unknown. Gregory says to make his sandbagging' story good he buoked his head repeatedly against tho vault door until he nearly fainted with pain. Gregory Is 89 years of age and as far as known ha* no vices. His salary waa fairly liberal, and both his own people and his wife's fr.ther had been generous to him. Hit wi:!e is hut 30 years of age, pretty, sensible and a favorite in society. .She ia prostrated by the shook, and mosningly denies the truth of the story. It is not believed Gregory has evsr played card* for money or speculated in any form. _ Kpldentlo of Hleeoaths. Niw YOBK, March 7.— There Is an epidemic of hiccoughs in this city and Brooklyn.

LANSING, Mich,, March 7.— Arguments wero made in the supreme court Tuesday in the quo warranto proceedings brought to determine tho title of Secretary of State Jochim, Treasurer Hambltzer and Land Commissioner Berry to their respective offices. They still hold possession in spite of the orders of removal made by Gov. Bich tws weeks ago. By stipulation, of counsel a test was made in the case of Secretary of Stuto Jochim, the two other officials being bound to abide by the result The principal argument for the officials was made by Fred A. Baker, of Detroit, who denied the power of the governor to remove hi* client*, for any neglect of duty in their capacity at canvassers. Mr, Baker was 'followed by Harrison Qeer, chief counsel for Gov. Rich. Mr. Geer said if the governor had power to remove such power oould, not be reviewed by the courts. Col Atkinson, of Detroit, closed the case for the officials. He contended that the offente charged did »ot constitute gross neglect and showed the impossibility of the secretary's glTlng all the duties put upon him by the constitution personal attention. He denied the competency of the governor to act as judge after having preferred the charges. It is not thought the court will file an oplon in this oase before April 1. FIRED ON THE BRITISH.
