KANSAH Orr-y , March 27. Join
Land , ono of the men engaged in the
robbery of the Chicago & Altoi
train at Blue Cut , in this county , ,
nude a confession to the grand jurj
at Independence to-day , in substance
as follows :
Ho says that the first intimation
that ho had of the intended robbery
was on the morning of the 7th of
September lost , the day upon which
the deed was committed. Creed ,
Chapman and John Bugler went to
him where ho was at work digging a
well , and broached the subject of the
robbery. They asked him to join
thorn , but ho at first declined , saying
that ho did not believe ho could make
any more money in the long
run out of train robbing
than ho could by digging wells. They
told him they would guarantee , him
more money than ho could earn dig
ging wells and insisted that ho should
loiiithem. He told them that ho
had to go down to Glendale to got anew
now drill and would talk to them
later in the day. Ho wont to Glen
dale , whore ho was introduced to a
man who was said to bo JOSBQ James ,
and who told him of a plan to rob the
train that night. Ho then agreed to
join them that night and Raw no
more of them during the day. Ho
did not know who would bo in the
party , excepting the two men who ho
had first talked with and the man in
troduced to him o& Jesse James , until
the entire party collected near the
Blue Cut to rob the train. Ho says
that when all had collected there
were twelve mun present and that
.of those five belonged to the old gang
and the rest were boys from
the neighborhood. He presented the
authorities with the names of all the
seven neighborhood boy a'who are now
tin the country , but that two of them
'skipped out early in the game , and
he supposes have joined the old gang
-who loft them that night after the
robbery. Land states that all those
Sunder arrest , in fact all the green
thorns concerned in the affair , were
.pimply Bt-oolpigeona for the old gang.
Hesays thatu ; was the old members
of the old gang who entered the express
press car and vent through the train ,
apd that all the country boys did was
to' keep up the racket on the outside.
After the robbery the entire party
wont into the woods a short distance
from the track , where the loader ,
who had all the "swag" in their pos
session said to the boys : "Boys , wo
haven't got time to divide , they
are too hot after us , and wo didn't
got the money wo expected to , any
how ; but we will all meet on the
right fork of the Blue next Wednes
day night ( just ono week from the
night of the robbery ) and we'll di
vide there. " With that the- five
( meaning the old gang ) mounted their
horses and rode away with the booty
in their possession , while Laud and
his companions dispersed for their
homos no richer than when they
started out. Before the night arrived
which had' been aot for the divide ,
the ni'tfct of them were safely jailed ,
and the others were fleeing the coun
try as rapidly as possible. Land de
clares bin belief that the robbery was
put up job , deliberately planned by
James and his gang for the double
purpose of securing the plunder and
getting the country boys into it in or
der to divert the attention of the au
thorities from their own operations.
Ho sconiB to bo in great dread of
Jesse James and his pals and always
refers to them as the "old gang , " and
saying with a nod and a wink , "you
know who I mean. " Land in a beard
less boy in appoafance , not oven 19
years of ago. His family are emi
nently respectable and ho always bore
a good reputation until this affair
came out. Land wan remundoc ] to
jail until to-morrow vhcn the trial of
Chapman and Bugler will bo in.
In the criminal court this afternoon
when the docket was called Laud'u
case came first and the prosecuting
attorney asked that it be put at tlio
foot of the docket , which shows that
Land is to bo used as a witness. TJin
next cases called were those of Bugler
mid Chapman. Bugler'H attorneys
uinoiiuced that they were ready for
trial and the venire of twenty-four
jurors was Bworn to answer questions.
Die court then adjourned until to
morrow morning at 10 o'clock , when
Hugler's trial will bo proceeded with.

in the store quick work was made of

was found it was necessary to break
some of the wood work in the safe ,

mate places it at$125. ( It is generally

The true inwardness of Mr. Gould's
ast trick haa still not been compro-
londod by the general public , who
oo nothing but the fact that ho ia m
losacsaion of an immense amount of
iccuritioa , and is in apparent league
vith another great miliionairo. Wall
troct itself does not orpastr.vwabout
, lie philosophy or psychology of the
lung. It rushes to buy , because
Yandeibilt and Gould arc buying. It
will juit as eagerly soil to-morrow , if
t dincovors that the butter ia on the

JOOof BO-CI inil sruuritiea are all the
property of Mr. Gould , and that there
is no lien or power of attorney on
them , the fact of their boint ; in hm

unsalable and unloanable. Ho doox
not issue Blocks and bonds for the
purpose of keeping them. Like any
other manufacturer he produces his

cates of bonds and stocks ho prints the
more he wants to sell.
Until the $53,000,000 of aecuritiea
exhibited at the Barnum-like show of
Monday last are distributed on both
aides of the ocean they have procti-
callyino lvalue. No well-managed
bunk would lend money on one lump
of 50,000 shares of Missouri Pacific ,
Western Union , or Wabash.
The point is that ho can not got
either $53,000,000 , qr one-quarter of
that amount out of them unless the
public chooses to take them off his
hands. It remains , then , to be seen
whether the public will do so , and at
what price. Ho has managed to not

cific , Missouri , Kansas & Texas , and
several other ventures with amazing
dexterity and wonderful success.
But it is doubtful whether the "inno

who have bought from him stocks ut

can again bo induced to buy his
