Captured a Wanajec.
St. lorw, Sept. 7. Another trail
u beki up oa the St Louis & Sao
Francisco road, this tims with the
unique accompaniment of a captured
Express train No. 1 on the 'Frisco
west-bound was flagged with a red
light a few miiea east of Pacific, which
is about forty miles west of St. Louis.
The train came to a standstill and two
men held the engine crew at bay while
a third went to the express and de
manded admittance. The messenger
refused to open the door. The demand
then came from one of the engine
guards to "blow her open." This com
mand was almost instantly followed by
a deafening report and the woodwork
of the car was wrecked. Then the
three highwaymen joined forces and
tried to enter the car, but were impeded
by the wreck.
At this junction the conductor and a
brakemaa rushed up to the robbers
with pistols drawn and commanded
them 13 surrender. The robbers an
swered with a poorly directed fusilade,
which the two brave trainmen gave
' back with interest. Such unexpected
resistance unnerved the robbers and
two of them took to their heels. Tiie
third was overpowered and made a
prisoner. So far as known no one
was hurt.
When the train pulled into Pacific
the express car presented a sorry sight.
Dynamiglit had torn the woodwork of
the sides and floor, but the messenger
was unharmed.
The prisoner was placed under guard
in the station and the train proceeded
on its journey. Excited villagers to the
number of 300 gathered about the de
pot and it was only by the determined
sfforts of cooler heads that a lynching
was prevented. The prisoner is far
from being a desperado in looks and
was too badly frightened to talk. A
pursuing party is already in the saddle
and the escape of the remaining rob
bers is almost impossible,
A Desperate Battla.
Oklahoma, O. T., Sept. 7. Word
has been received hereof a desperate
battle between Deputy United State!
Marshal O. S. Harris and a posse and
two desperadoes called "Three-Flnger-sd
Jack" and ' '-Tecumseh," a negro,
near Keokuk Falls, on the border of
Oklahoma. When they were informed
that Tbree-Fin?ered Jack and Te
cutnseh would be at a dance in that
neighborhood that night, with a quan
tity of whisky, Harris and his party
laid in wait for them and surrounded
them in the road. The desperadoes
drew revolvers in each hand and rode
through the guard, keeping up a con
stant fire. When the posse opened fire
on them Tecumseh's horse was killed
and Jack's wounded, but both escaped.
Harris had fire men in his party and
they were all on foot and were unable
to follow the desperadoes.
Later news has reached here that
Tecumseh was snot through the body
and cannot possibly recover. Three-
flngered Jack's name is Boo and he
was a member of the Dalton gang.
There is a large reward offered for him
in Kansas, , where he is wanted for
train robbery.
To EufurM 4 ha Law.
Los Angeles, Cal., Sept. 7. Judge
Boss of the United States district
court announced that the statement or
the treasury department that there was
no money to enforce the provisions of
the Geary act is not founded upon fact,
and accordingly ordered t he deportation
of Cham ShMig Yuen, a Chinese
laborer who refused to register.
When the case was called the district
attorney presented a telegram from Attorney-General
Olney setting forth the
' fact that there are no funds for the ex
ecution of the law, and the action of
the federal court in New York in a
similar case, discharging the prisoner
until sncb time as provision for his
deportation was made by the proper
authorities. Tha court was asked to
sake a similar order. Judge Ross de
declined and in hi opinion said, in
"The information coneveyed to the
court 1s not that there are no funds
available for the execution of the Geary
act, but that then are no funds to exe
cute it insofar at it provides for the de
portation of Chinamen who have pro
cured certificates of residence. That

such certificates be procured, having
been sustained by the supreme court,

Guthrie, 0. T., Sepui. It has been
discovered that ex-Chief Bushyhead of
the Cherokees and a syndicate ef
wealthy speculators have perfected a
scheme to grab the en lire township of
Kild tre, the county seat of "K" county,
on the Cherokee strip on opening day.
A company of 150 cowboys and half
breeds lias been formed and trained to
enter from the Osage reservation, bnt
the cowboys and half-breeds are there
already by permission of the govern
ment, herding cattle in leased pastures,
and they will muke a dash across the
river and by riding six miles easily beat
the settlers who must come fourteen
miles from the Kansas line. These
cowboys are to bold the main portion
of the town airaiust, all comsrs with
their revolvers and Winchesters, and
when the speculators arrive they will
sell nut to them. This plan has been
fully arranged and if it is carried out
bloodshed may be looked for, as the
settlers are arming themselves and pro
pose to fight for their rights if neces
sary. A Cl"e to the New York Murder.
Middletown, N. Y., Sept 8. The
murder mystery, so far as it relates to
the identity of the victims, is a mys
tery no longer. Today the bodies were
fully identiiied as those of Mrs. Mar
garet McQuillan aud her daughter
Sarah, of the town of Newburg, about
a mile west of this city. It was devel
oped that Mrs. Hnliiday, the alleged
murderess, last Wednesday secured the 1
mother and her daughter to help ber
do house cleaning.
Today two pistols were found in the
vault in an outhouse on an adjoining
farm. The pistols are of calibre which
corresponds .with the bullet found
near the bed in the house, and with the
bullet found in the murdered woman.
The suspected murderess continues to
rave and act as one violently insane. On
a previous occasion when she was ac
cused of a crime she acted in a similar
manner and it is believed that she is
shamming. Her 'husband, Paul Hol
liday, is still missing.
In the same vault where the pistols
were found, later there was dug out an
ounce vial, without a label, containing
chloroform, and two boxes of cartridg
es, one full and the other partly empty.
Mrs. Holliday on her return from
Bloomingsburg with Constable Cotton
Monday, went to the Outhouse. It is
thought she dropped tha pistols, chlor
oform and cartridges while there.

When the train got away from the

for the horseman to keep up with it.
When the man caught up with the ex
press car he tried to get in the door
from the back of his horse and the
messenger dpened fire on him. The
ground was very rough and the horse
after stumbling several times, fell to

Chabxestoh. 8. O, Sept 4. The
New and Courier made a careful in
vestigation of affair on the coast of
South Carolina and find that iU re
ports were not exaggerated. The loss
of life will aggregate 8 0 in Beaufort
county. Between Charleston and Sa
vannah the storm swept away most of
the homes, a well as growing crops,
and left the people in a destitute state.
The loss of life and property was found
to be greatest in St. Helena, Ladyes,
Wassa, Coosa w, Paris, Dawf uskie aud
Datha island. Tnesa islands, together
with Port Royal island have a popula
tion of 15,0i, laost of whom are
negroes. Estimate at this time as to
the loss of life are incomplete. A
great many lives were lost that will
never be reported, as the bodiei were
washed cut to .sea. Other islands are
yet to be heard from and it is likely
the list will be greatly swelled.
The reports show that there is great
3 i stress among the colored people.
Their homes were washad away and
the crops destroyed. '1 here is no work
for them to do aud they are suffering
for food, ex-Gongressman j.llioit says:
''Starvation is sure and imminent."
A relief committee has been organized,
comdosed of colored and white men,

Shipping suffered severely, nine
tenths of the vessels in the ports of
Port Royal and Beauford being j

Chicago, Sept. 5. A Herald special
from Philadelphia says: The exodus
of foreigners from this city and state,
and in fact from the whole country
east of the Ohio river, inaugerated by
the Hungarian and Russian e lements
early in the summer, has recently been
considerably edded to by the departure
for their native laud of a lari;e number
of Italians, principally laborers. The
Italinns began leaving this city about
the middle of of May, but during July
and August the volume of travel east
ward across the aUi.ntic took a eudded
boom. Since the tide of returning em
igration eet in at let.8t 60,000 Italian
workingmen many of them mechanics,
who were domicled and employed in
Philadelphia, have sailed for their
homes, and not less than 5U.030 depart
ures are estimated to have taken place
from the eastern section ot the United
States. These are the ires given by
the immigration pmVials at this port.

Tbe fact is our countrymen are be

tansas City, Kas., says that the dead
jody of Bill Doolin, ona of the men
wounded at the light at Ingalls. had
seen found five miles from that place.
Doolin was one of the men who es
:aped from the Coffeyville raid last
November. The finding of his body
ends strength to the report that Bill
Dalton was one of the participants in
Jie battle at Ingalls. Doolin usually
sarried five or six revolvers. lie was a
walking arsenal aud a dead shot. It
was reported that Bill Dalton put four
ball.! into Deputy Lafe Shadley's body
it a distance of two hundred yards at
Ingalls. There are many who think
Doolin, and not Dalton, did this shoot
ing. Doolin was himself shot through
tbe chest, but he was helped to remount

body it is supposed he fell from his
horse and bled to death on the prairie.

Bill Dalton and two of these men com
mitted the robbery at Mound Valley,

man claims to have seen them in the
