A Dog Detective
Archie Dick Confesses to a Burglary and Tells Where the "Swag" is Hidden.

With the assistance of a big Newfoundland dog, Lieut. Zacher of Precinct 8 has found the property stolen from Joseph Voisin's house on Emslie street. As stated in yesterday's News, Archie Dick was arrested on suspicion of being implicated in the burglary. He was assigned to a cell in Station 8, but nothing could be gotten out of him. Two doors from the station there lives the above-mentioned Newfoundland dog. He had a violent fit of howling yesterday. The wails were wafted on the afternoon wind through the station walls. Dick supposed that the police had arrested his mother and sister and that they were confined up-stairs. He thought the cries came from them, and on the appearance of Lieut. Zacher he made a full confession for the sake, as he thought, of liberating his relatives.

Specials Reibold and Christbaum found the "swag" secreted beneath the floor in the attic of Dick's house on Emslie street. About $75 worth of property was recovered. As Supt. Morin said this morning, "if it had not been for the dog, the property would not have been found."
