BURGLARY UP TO DATE. [Newspaper Article] — Bowral and Robertson Free Press — 24 April 1901

BURGLARY UP TO DATE; A daring and clever attempt at burglary, which was frustrated by a dog, is report ed from Bale (says a Geneva correspon dent):' Two well-dressed Italians drove up to one of the largest hotels in Bale and left a box in charge of the proprietor, stating that they would, return, later in the evening: - At midnight, as the visitors did' not ap pear,the hotel was closed, and, according to custom, the watch dog was left loose in the hall. No sooner .had the dog been set free than it began to attack the box furiously, and would not be driven away. The proprietor's suspicions being aroused, he sent for the police, who, on opening the box, found a man armed with a loaded revolver concealed in it. The box also contained a set of beautifully-finished steel tools for breaking open a< safe and an electro-dynamo. . The two . acconv plices, on entering at an early hour next morning, were also-arrested.. ' ,
