United Press Association —By Eleotrio Telegraph. Wellington, July 2

A daring and cleverly planned robbery took place at the residence of Me E. P. Collins, in Brougham street, at about half past one this morning. Mr Collins aud his wife were awakened by the movement of the door of their bedroom, arid heard footsteps descending the stairs. There was a liijht burning in the room at the time, and this seems to have enabled the burglar to carry out his work with great promptitude. He sterns to have gone direct to the receptacle in which Mr Collins's jewellery was placed, and also to the resting place of Mrs Collins's jewels. He made a clean sweep of both, carrying away, plunder to the extent of£soo or J3600. This included some valuable diamond ring--. The police were soon informed, and several "arrests have been made on suspicion. Footprints in the garden are said to be the only clue to the offender.

Dunedin, July 2

The railway station at Mosgiel was bur glariously entered this morning, the safe blown open by dynamite, and some £9 stolen. Two explosions were used, one to open the outer and one the inner compartments. There were two safes in the station one above the other, set in concrete. The burglars selected the largest as likely to prove the most productive, but in this they were mistaken, the bulk of the Cash being in the smaller safe.
