BURGLARS AT WORK.
SAFES BLOWN OPEN
AUCKLAND, March 13
Between the closing hour last night and soven o'clock this morning Trenwith Bros.' boot and shoe factory and R. Walton and Co.'s " Lion" boot factory, in Wakefield Street, were entered by burglars. In both promises the safes were blown open, and from Trenwitlis' the sum of £4 was stolen. When the employees of the factories: arrived this morning it was found that the front doors of both premises had been forced. The safes had been almost completely wrecked, by the use of powerful explosives. Heaps of packing and other material showed that precautions had been taken to deaden the sound of the explosion, but the charges in each case had been made sufficiently strong to prevent any chance of failure.
