WYANDOTTE. Robbery. George H. Lillie, member of the Wyandotte Convention from Madison county, and Mr. Blackman from Leavenworth, stopping at Emheiling’s Boarding House, were robbed last night. The former lost some $75.00, the latter $17.00. The thief must have entered the chamber window fronting the street by means of a ladder. We hope efforts will be made to discover the villain, and bring him to justice. – Wyandotte Gazette.
