The following dispatch relative to Orla C. Gregory appeared in last night's Evening News: Ann Arbor, Mich., April 30. - Orla C. Gregory, the Dexter bank robber, has been taken from the retreat at Dearborn to his father's home at Dexter. He will leave today for California with a party of friends, and it is thought will not return. His father, J. V. N. Gregory, is one of the party. Young Gregory shows no signs of his recent illness and seems the same as ever. There is no talk of prosecuting him; in fact, matters connected with the theft have been so arranged that it will be impossible to prosecute him. He is so well that he has done business with the church of which he has been treasurer. On the streets this mornijpg Gregory was handsomely dressed, wearing a new silk tile and fashionable spring overcoat, and showing the utmost self-possession and self-satisfaction. Gregory's wife will not accompany him. The robbed bank has not yet decided as to the disposition of the $750 offered for the return of the raoney. Detective Baker, of Detroit, Deputy Sheriff Petersen, of Ann Arbor, and Constable Steffins, of Dexter, are all after it. A friendly suit has been brought to settle the matter.
