Miss Winkler, Infatuated Willi a Young
Man Named Barnes, Takes Her
Stop - Father's Money That She
Might Marry the Man ot Her Choice
-Not Yet Decided Whether They
Will tie Prosecuted.
Miss Pbllopena Winkler and a young
man named Barnes wr. arrested ves-
terday nfternonn by iitective Barring,
of Wilkes-Bsrre, end Detective Math
ews, of Faotoryvlll , no the charge of
having conspired in the stealing of
$1,33-1 S3 from Henry Winkler, of 481
The robbery, it will he remembered
by readers of Tin: TttlBUNB, took place
on the morning of March '.'1
T he night before Mr. Winkler, who
is treasurer for tilt) South Side Herman
Boil liugund Loan aasociation, atten l
ed a meeting of that organic ttion, at
which abou' 1,600 in checks, blllS,gold
and silver wore paid over to hitn.
This money he took home mi l locked
in the safe in the front ro ui
At i o'clock tiie following morning
he was awakened by n strong draught
of air rushing into the sleeping apart
ment which he occupied,
Mr Winkler arose to investigate and
found the front door open, No! onlv
this, bin be also discovered that the
sale had been opened and the slim id'
money above mentioned had be-u
Tne matter was placed in tha hands
of the police department and Detective
Birring was also summoned to aid in
bringing about the discovery and ar
rect '. tbe guilty persons.
From the first the investigation
seems to have been c. inducted on the
belief that some member of th Wmk

and for various, re.is tai auspidoa tell

sttsa WINKCKR'S FAIUSU.
In tracing up her history It was
learned that she was very much enam
ored of a young man named 13 irues,
who sciu" time ago wis engaged as h
nurse at the Moses Taylor hospital,
wh-re Mis Winkler W is also employed
In tbe same capacity. Barnes let t the
city ami went to Brooklyn, but sodesp
was tbe young woman's Infatuation
that it seemed to those acquainted with
the facts that she would not hesitate to
do Anything for the sake of h-r lover.
The couple were poor, and Barues, it
is thought, merely kept'upa pretense
of C'ring for the girl, hoping in some
way to pr tit thereby.
Furthermore it is sail that Mr. Wink
ler had mad ' a will in which he be
queathed his property to his wife, thus
leaving, the adopted dan.iter psnni-1-ss.
This th- girl kisew and the natural
ioference whs that she thought it only
doing herself justice to help herself
while si)e had an opportunity.
The detectives, having what they
considered a reliable clue, kept their
ey-s onea for Birneg.
Thnrsday afternoon he arrived in
the city and registered at the Valley
House. His movements were watched;
so were those of Miss Winkler.
Yesterday afternoou she entered
Li man's restaurant on Lackawanna
avenue, wher she at one time worked,
and enquired if anyone had called for
Being answered in the n?gative, she
sent a message to Barnes, who was at
the V alley House, to which that indi
vidual promptly responded.
PLACED l NfiEP. ARREST.
Soon after they were placed under
arrst and condncte l to Detective Ber
ing's oilice. in the Commonwealth
building, where thsy were examined
The girl stoutly dnied tha Recusa
tion, but the examination was thor
ough an 1 developed tbe fact that "ho
had a knowledge as to tha whereabouts
of the missing money
All concerned in the case are very
reticent, however, an 1 refuse to my
wi. ether or not the money was found'
tut there is every reason to believe
that it has been recoverel.
Both Miss Winkler and Barnes wer--detained
in custody, and whether or
not they will be prosecuted will doubt
less be decided today.
The woman in tbe case is young and
decidedly good looking. Kho dresses
Well, does not have the least appear
