I Mail Packet Robbery. I X3,000 WORTH OF BULLION MISSING. I Yesterday morning, on the arrival at Dover of I the mail packet Albert from Ostend, it was ascertained that two large baskets con- taining registered postal parcels were missing. Over 20 of the lost packages were usured, and t.bey are supposed to have contained much valuable property. They included three parcels which together contained at least 93,000 worth of bullion. It is believed that tbe remainder of the packets were almost equally nluable. How or where the robbery was effected remains for the J present a mystery. I As soon as the matter became known the Scotland Yard authorities were communicated with. and during t'" whole of yesterday Superin- tendent Donald Swanson and his officers were investigating the affair. It is believed that Continental thieves have carried out the robbery. I A CONTRADICTION, j With reference to the sensational story published this mnrning of a robbery of bullion on its way to London, the Central News learns to-day that the alleged stolen baskets we.-e not shipped at all from Ostend. They had been placed in safe keeping, and were found all right this morning. The baskets have been shipped to-day, and will arrive in London in due course to-night. The Press Association is officially informed that there was no robbery from the mails at Dover yesterday. When the mails arrived some parcels were found to be missing, which upon II inquiry it was ascertained had been accidentally left behind at Ostend. The missing parcels arrived at the General Post Office in London this I morning and are intact.
