The full version of the conversation

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

the press-conference of the chief inspector Blunt on the results of the investigation does not expect to be very long because Mr Blunt is a very busy person. Please, be active and attentive and civil! You may ask your questions after Mr. Blunt’s short introduction of the case.

 

- Hello! I’m inspector Blunt and I should say that the investigation was not easy at all, but we succeeded in it. This is magnificent! This is the greatest windfall that any detective organization ever had. The fame of it will travel to the ends of the earth, and will last to the end of time!

- “New York Sun”. Well, Mr Blunt. What can you say about the offender?

- I’d say it was a real monster! Sixty persons were killed, and two hundred and forty wounded. The list went on, growing redder and redder. Such a heartbreaking crime! That dim vast mass had been glimpsed in cities and villages! But in all cases the dim vast mass had vanished quickly and left no trace.

- “New York Times”. How did you manage to find it?

- 34 detectives of the large force sent their hourly reports, and every one of them had a clue, and was hot upon the heels of it. But the facts amounted to nothing, clues led to nothing, and the newspapers began to fling the most stinging sarcasms at us. But he laughs best who laughs last.

- “New York Evening Post”. And who was that heart of oak, Mr Blunt?

- You know, people say “only give him a clue, it's all he wants, and there aren't anything hid that he can't find”. A masterly move occurred to my mind – a compromise with the robbers.

- “New York Journal”. Was it really successful?

- No. But I suspected it with my detective instinct and changed the plan. I wrote an advertisement for the morning papers and it did! Our noble profession is vindicated – the elephant was found at last!

- We all want to hear from you here and now: “Who was the robber?”

- The robber? Of course, the robber… The robber was. Exactly. Yes. We can’t do without him. But do you really think this person is worth mentioning at such a happy moment? The main thing is that the investigation is finished, the lost elephant is found, the suggested reward is paid.

- “New York Sun”. Who are these lucky people?

- The fifty thousand dollars as a reward was shared between the detectives. The other part belongs to the secret agent, whose information was so important. We've earned it; and, more than that, we've earned for the detective profession undying fame.

 

Sorry now, we’ve come to the dead line. Thanks for your participation.
