Sept. 20, 1893: The cave on River street used by S. R. Ryan for a beer cellar was entered Saturday night. The front of the cave was boarded up. The entrance was effected by tearing the boards away. A barrel of beer was taken. The burglars, however, did not go far with it, for it was found in the road near the Baron block corner.
