Looking for a black cat in a dark room

Задание тура

Dear sleuths!
The second task is important as it will help you to trace the way of the stolen white elephant. We are expecting the telegrams from the detectives to begin to arrive at any moment now...

You should read the second part of the story and mark the places at the map which could help you to find the elephant and the robbers.
Be attentive, some information from the telegrams doesn't pertain to our case.

Some geographical names from the story might be the result of the author's imagination or no longer exist, so you can't find them in the real maps.
You should use your fantasy and critical thinking in order to create a map.

Задание
