Kbtdallville, IntL, Sept 14.
Another daring and successful train
robbery goes on record. The New

road, which left Chicago at 7?45 last
nleht reached the aidinr at KmIh five
lugo reacnea me siding at Hosier, bve
mues west et nere at 1 ociock this
morning. On approaching the switch
Engineer Knapp noticed a red danger
signal light and stopped the train. As
he did so twenty men, armed with
Winchesters, spnng out of the woods
and scattered along the train, covering
the trainmen, while one fired at tha
engineer, inflicting a wound In his
shoulder. With everything in their
bands, the robbers blew open the ex
press car with dynamite. They then
knocked the expnss messenger sense-
less ana exploded nve dynamite can
ridges against the safe before it yielded.
They then helped themselves to the
contents, the whole performance oc
cupying on hour. Then without mak
ing any attempt on the other express
ear or interfering with the passengers,
who remained in the can panic-stricken
they fired a few warning shots and
ilsappeared in the woods.
It was rumored that the robben se
wed $250,000 in transit from one of
the Chicago banks to New York. The
rumor has not yet been verified. The
train came on here and an alarm was
riven and the sheriff at once summoned
posse and started in pursuit of the

Engineer Knapp brought the train

ompelleii tbe messenger to open the

hen blew open the big safe with dyna-j

ruarter of million dollan gold, with
shlch the robben loaded themselves,

wrtment, in which was another lot of
noney. In their haste to get away the
sobers also overlooked two gold bars.
The train is the heaviest for express on

mown to tbe robbers. When they left
he train they went in a southerly
Urection. Tbe point at which the
tibbery occured is in a deep cut in the
iroods, but all the country around is
ihickly populated, with little timber,
tnd it is believed to be impossible for
he robben to escape.
AS IF SWALLOWED BY THE EARTH.
Immediately after the robben rode
iway from the scene of the holdup
Marshal Bertalter, Mayor Marcy and a
osse from this city started in rigs for
Kessler. They scoured the dense woods
tnd cornfields and ransacked all the
impty buildings in tbe neighborhood,
lut not a trace of a robber could be
tound. It is evident that the bandits
itarted in a southerly direction and
that they wen well equipped with
torses. Sheriff Hanck of Noble coun
ty hurried from his home in Albion and
lOinedthe marshal's forces, which were
later reinforced by Detective Need ham,

ricy with which the bandits made their

Washington, Sept. 13. Attorney
General Olney bas instructed the Unit
ed States marshals to take no further
steps for the enforcement of the Geary
law pending specific instructions to tbe
contrary from Washington. These in
structions do not apply, however, to
Chinese already in process of deporta
tion by due process of law.
The new Chinese minister was in
formed today of the intention of the
administration to suspend further ac
tion under the exclusion act pending
tbe action of congress on the bill in
troduced by Representative Everett
to extend to September 1, 1891, the
time in which Chinese may register.
Tbe change in attitude is, it is believed,
due to strong prote ts of the Chinese
government, coupled with an intima
tion that in event of the refusal of
such action that government would no
longer assume the responsibility for
tbe future safety of Americans in

Chicago, Sept. 9. Two fast trains
on tbe Pennsylvania mil road crashed
into each other near Colebour, a small
town near the Indiana state line,
Thursday morning, and in an instant
eleven lives were lost aod nearly a scon
of other unfortunates wen mained and
dispatchers are to blame.
The casuality appears to have been
the result of a blunder inexcusable by
the railroad officials. Two trains were
scheduled to pass south on tbe single
line track between Colehour, 111., and
Hammond, lnd., constructed by the
Pennsylvania to meet tbe exigencies of
tbe world's fair traffic. At abont the
same time a train was due north on the
track, and this appears to have been
fully understood in the train dispatch
er's office. It was arranged to give tbe
north train, due at the union depot at
9:35 o'clock, with milk and way passen
gers from, Valparaiso, lnd., the
right of way, and it was ordered
to proceed toward Chicago and
did so at the rate of thirty miles
an hour. In the meantime trains Nob,
160 and 12. the latter the Pan Handle
limited express, were supposed to have
been held on the double track at Cole
hour to await the passage of No. 45, tbe
milk train. Orden were given tbe
operator at Colebour to bold No. 160.
but nothing was said to him about No.
12. He obeyed orden and No. 12 was
allowed to enter upon the single track
on Its schedule time running forty
miles an hour, directly toward tbe milk
train, which bad also been giveu the
right of way in an opposite direction
on the same track.
WAS A TERRIBLE CR1SH.
The Pan Handle express had pro
ceeded but a short distance on its way
and was rounding a slight curve when
the milk train was sighted ahead, and
the two trains, scarcely slacking in
speed in the short distance, dashed in
to each other. The wreck which en
sued was complete, xhe engine crews
saved their lives by jumping, tbe two
locomotives com ng together a moment
later with a crash that wrecked both
and drove the baggage car of tbe Pan
Handle train completely through tbe
smoking car behind it. In this car
were about forty passengers and in it
the loss of life occurred. So completely
was the car wrecked that it seemed
miraculous that any of those in it
escaped aliv', but when rescuers rallied
to the scene and began work, it was
found that many who bad been on the
ill-fated car were foremost in their
SUCH A WRECK NEVER SEEN.
The dismantled engine and can threw
tbe engine of the exprebs train back
with such a force that in turn lifted
the baggage car up and drove it like a
glove into the smoking car just behind.
Railroad men there said they bad never
seen similar results. With fearful
power the baggage car was forced into
and almost to the far end of the smok
ing car. To allow this the car spread
somewhat and the force of the horizon
tal blow having been expended, the
framework of tbe baggage car settled
down and crushed the life out of those
who bad not already been mowed down
in its path. From this smoking car
most of the dead and wounded were
taken. This was a difficult task, for
tbe dead and suffering were buried be
neath the heavy floor of the baggage
car and the firet arrivals at the scene
of tbe wreck found arms and legs ex
tending from every window. Every
time a portion of the debris was re
moved it seemed as if another body
would be exposed to view.
OOTJLD NOT BE RECOGNIZED.
Tbe most horrible sight was the mass
of human remains that was dashed
against the tender of the Pan Handle
locomotive. It had once been a man.
Some said that be was a tramp and
that be bad been stealing a ride. on the
"blind baggage" platform. When the
collision came this unknown man was
crushed into a mass of jelly between
tbe baggage car and the beajn tender,
One man whose name has not yet been
