AN EXTENSIVE BANK ROBBERY. The last advices from Brazil mention that an extra- ordinary robbery had been committed at the Bank of Bahia (a local bank). It appears that at 3 p.m. on Saturday, the 22nd of December, the directors who were retiring from their weekly duties handed, all usual, the keys of the strong rooms and cash-chests to the direetors next on the rota, and who were then about to take charge for the ensuing week. The in- ooming directors pioceeded to examine the cash-chests in daily use, as was customary, and discovered that four bundies of notes, value 210 contos, had been ab- stracted. The reserve chest, which had not been ex- amined for a month, and had been opened only once during that time, was next examined, when a further deficiency of 56 contos was discovered, making a total of 266 contos, or about 30,000 £ The police were at once communicated with, but up to the time of the departure of the mail (on the 27th of December) had failed to trace the notes. Suspicion pointed to a con- fidential clerk in the bank, who had been accustomed to assist the directors on duty in opening and closing the strong rooms, but nothing had been proved against him. It appears that some time previously, conse- sequent on a change of offices, the locks of the doors and chests had been cleaned, and it is thought pos. sible that false keys might then have been prepared. As the notes were mostly of small denominations, and the parcels necessarily bulky, it is certain they must either have been removed in bags, and that conse- quently more than one person must have been impli- cated in the robbery, or that the parcels must have been abstracted at several different times if the robbery had been effected by one person only. A special meeting of shareholders was at once held, and after an explanation of facts and some d is (Mission, it had been adjourned till the following day,
