The G.T.R. station at Markham was entered on Tuesday night and the safe blown open by professional cracksmen. The safe is a wreck, the door being shattered into fragments and the sides badly cracked. As far as can be learned the thieves secured about twelve dollars in silver as a reward for their toil. A large bale of dry goods addressed to J. Martin, a travelling salesman, had been used as a buffet and the goods are ruined. The baggage room was also entered and a trunk belonging to Walter Laundry, who had just come to take a position in the Sun office, was forced open. A valise was also rifled. No clue.
