robbers captured the track walker
last night seven miles beyond Davis-
rule and then , with his lantern , signaled -
naled to the Oregon Overland train
from San Francisco , which wasiri
right , to stop. Two men then jumped
on the locomotive and. after firing
several shots forced Engineer Will-
fain Scott to go back and uncouple
the express and mail cars. These

Then the robbers , with the engineer -

to open the car and several shots
were fired , one of which grazed his
head. He returned the fire until
Engineer Scott begged him to desist
Then Paige opened the car and one
of the outlaws covered the trainmen
while the other gathered up four
sacks of gold and silvcr , amounting
to about $1,500.

forced to carry the treasure to the

As far as can be learned more than
500 pounds of coin were taken. , If all
silver it would be about $5,000 ; if all
gold , about $75,000. It is believed
that one sack weighing 100 pounds
carried by the engineer was gold ,
considering thc smallness of bulk as
compared to its weight. If so , that
sack contained about $25,000.

WAS THE CZAR POISONED ?
SENSATIONAL PRiVATE DISPATCHES -
PATCHES MADE PUBLIC.
HE IS BEING SLOWLY PUT TO DEATh.
Dr. Schmdt , the German Scientist aiui
Traveler Now In This Country. Gives
Out a New Version of the Czar's
Illness-His Sickness Brought
About by Sclentllic Meani
MINNEAPOLIS , Mimi. . Oct. 1G.-Dr.
George F ; V Schmidt the German
travelernow in Minneapolis , has just
received secret dispatches from St.
Petersburg which throw a strong
light.ou the crisis in European poli.
tics caused by the impending death
of the czar. The dispatches came
written in sympathetic ink on an apparently -
parently blank piece of paper. The
application of heat brought out some
strange stenographic characters
which he i'cadily translated. To a
reporter he remarked that in order to
send such things from St. Petersburg
it was necessary to doubly protect
them by the use of sympathetic ink
and a secret code.
The doctor translated the dispatch
as follows :
"The czar is lying at the point of
death. Tile excitement of the high-
cst circles of Russia is tremendous. It
is understord in a wide circle in fIns.
sia that the czar's sickness was
brought about by scientific meaiis and
that his death vill not be a natural
one. It is on account of this that the
journals contradict the fact of the
"There is a party that wants to see
the czarewitch on the throne. The
czarewitch is of a cranky , melancholy
nature , iiclined to institute the most
radical reforms throughout Russia
and has already made plans for such
action. He is much hated by the cler-
gy. ihie patriarch of Moscow , who is
at the head of the Greek church , has
traveled about with the czar in order
to persuade him to put his second son
on the throne instead of the czare-
witch. The Greek Catholic church Of
Russia is feverishly excited. The
reichsrath. or council of the empire ,
is daily holding secret counciL The
Pan-Slavic party is with the church
and against the czarewitch , who is a
great friend of Germany.
"Should the czar decide to place
his second son upon the throne this
would be looked upon as a direct in-
suit to Germany and would be attended -
tended with the most serious results.
The second son of the czar is very
inimical to the Germans , friendly to
the French , dreadfully despotic and
in the highest degree headstrong ,
and a strong autocrat. It is fear.
ed that on the deathbed of
the czar the church. influence
will succeed in inducing him to call
his second son as his successor. As
this seconti son is very hot-headed he
is sure not to remain long on the
throne without becoming seriously
involved in state troubles. The 88-
year-old patriarch of Moscow has had
a two-hours conference with the czar
at hisdeathbed , but no one knows
the purport of this talk.
'The second son of the czar is very
despotic , opposed to the liberty of the
people and is of an envious nature.
He is a fine soldier. fond of a fight , a
martial fellow and very ambitious.
He is an enemy of England , of Germany -
many and , above all , of America. He
not only intends to increase the size
of Asiatic Russia , but also to attempt
the tremendous task of bridging the
Behring straits and extending his
empire in the dircion of Ani rica.
This prfnce is by all odds one of the
greatest generals in Russia , having
been with Mourka and Timasehieff
and having studied with the latter.
"All the cabinets of Europe are
alarmed. It is rumored that the entrance -
trance of England into the dreibund ,
that is the tripb. alliance , is about to
take place. Already between Russia
and France secretrelations have been
entered into. "
