L.C.C. TRAM MONEY STOLEN. -—— A daring robbery was carried out in tho small hours of Monday morning at the tramway depot of the London County Council in Paul- street, near the City-road, E.C., gold and silver to the value of about £ 1,000 being stolen. The depot, which was taken over by the Council some two years ago from the North Metropoli- tan Tramways Company, is the centre at which the money taken on the Northern system is deposited by the conductors each day. It is a building which consists of several floors, com- I prising offices and st-ock-rooms, in which the tickets, time-sheets and other papers are kept. In the basement, the approach to which is by a staircase from the interior of the building only, is w^hat is called a strong room. This is a well-built compartment, having thick brick sides, and being erected against the wall with a strong iron door. The day porter arrived at six a.m., and found nothing at first sight unusual about the place. The door of the strong room was locked, as is customary, and it was only when the tramway officials arrived later and went into the base- ment to get the usual change for the conductors that the strong room was found to be in a state of confusion. The previous day's takings had been put in boxes, so far as the gold and silver was concerned, the coppers being left in large bags on the floor. It was soon seen how an. entry had been effected to the strong room. On one side a large hole had been made in the w ail by the removal of bricks, and the burglar, or burglars, had evidently found it possible to put an arm through this hole and abstract the money. While the discriminating thief took away bags of silver amounting in value to £820, and over £ 150 in gold, he left behind the "hüle of the coppers.
