Robbers Provide Themselves with Bioyoles
on Which to Make Their .
Sheriff Dognrc1 and One of the Two Robber -
bore Jtllled and the Fireman Seriously
'Vounclod-Sovcrlll Passengers
Lose Their Valuable.
SACnAMENTO March 30.-The north-
bound Oregon express was held up by two
men tour miles north of Wheattand about 2
o'clock this morning. Engineer Dowsber
was compelled to stop the train and go back
and open the express car. FAiling to secure
anything In the express car , the robbers
started to rob tine passengers In the ceach
and smoker. Sheri Dognrd or Tehama
county was on the train and opened fire on
the robbers In the smoker , killing one er
them , and was himself killed by another
robber. The fireman was shot In the neck
and one leg and Is thought to 00 seriously
Injured. A passenger named Sampson ot
Redding was struck on the head and cut.
Several passengers were robbed The dead
bodies were turned over to the coroner at
Mary&vllle. The dead robber bas not been
identified and no accurate description or the
lIIan who escaped has been secured.
It was evidently the Intention or the
robbers to escape on bicycles. The body or
Sheriff Dogard and that or the dead robber
were taken to Alar'svlllc , where It was discovered -
covered that limo robber was attired In 1\ full
and complete bicycle suit , over which he had
drawn a. pair at overalls. In the overalls ho
had improvised pcckets made or toweling , In
which were two big pilitois. The dead robber
Is known In the vicinity or Maryavllle , where
he had eaten several ! meals In a restaurant
during the put tow weeks lie Is over six
feet tall and weighs over 200 poundB. A.
Northcott , time fireman , has two bullets In
his body and may Ille.
The first Intimation that the engineer and
fireman had of the presence or robbers on
the train was when a man climbed over
from time blind baggage car allli commanded !
at the poInt or II pistol the train to be
atcppetl. The command was ISO earnest that
the brakes were aplilled. Then lire robber
caused time engineer and fireman to jump
from the train , and with another robber who
appeared to come tuna a hiding place III
the roadway , they compelled the fireman to
request that the express car ba openeJ. This
was done , but time robbers could find nothing
or value and tine combination or the sate was
not In the bands or the messengers The
robbers carried a bag mania from the leg or
an old pair or overalls tied at one end , All
they went through the first car , the smoker ,
they made the passengers , who were few III
number , put In their coin and valuables , the
fireman being the custodian , behind which
the robbers stooll The colored porter In the
tourist sleeper just beyond the day coach be-
came aware that a robbery was In progress
and knowing that Sheriff Bogard was In II
berth , called him , That he-role man wu In
his IIhoos and trousers III a minute and
arllled with his heavy revolvers started for
the door to the north lie crossed the 1111I.t-
form between the sleeper and the day coach
and as he entered the latter at the south door
tha robbers came In at the north ,
The sheriff stepped to one side , aimed and
fired. Ills bullet dropped the man nearest
him , but the second tailed 10 reach lie target
One ot the robbers must have seen Bogard
ender and on doing so jumped down and , run-
ning alongside or the car , entered and shot
him from the rear , The fatal wound Is In the
sherllr'lI back , just below the kidneys. When
the robber was shot be exelahn d , " 11111I 1 don
for " ' ! he other asked , "Are you killed , Ill 17"
and thereupon they hastily left time car , tell : ng
tko now thoroughly frightened trainmen and
passengers not to attempt 10 rollow. The
passengers were all thoroughlY aroused by this
time and there were a number who wanted
to go on and others who wanted to go back
Conductor Sbortrldgo secured a man to help
Engineer Dowser , and after halt an hour's
delay the train came on to Marysvllle , arriv-
Ing there about 2:30 : a. m. The dead robber
has been Identified by the night clerk at the
United Staes hotel III MaryBvlllo and by
! John J. Daisy , who occupies the same position -
I tlon lit the Golden Eagle hotel. The two
strangers arrived at time United States hotel
soon after the departure or the Oregon express
Monday morulng. They both bad bicycles and
stated that they had arrived on the train.
OOlclllis of the Southern Pacific company
had been expecting a holdup on the Oregon
division for a long time , and until night be-
tore last heavily armed guards have ridden
as far ns MarysvllIe on every night train.
Last night tire guards were not on and the
bandits Improved their opportunity. The detectives -
tectives for the railroad company and the
Wells - Fargo Express company are convinced
that the robbers came from San Francisco.
They have discovered two men who were In
MarysvllIo and Whentland for several days
before the robbery. They appeared there on
bicycles. Tba dead robber , who was over six
feat tall , and weighed about 200 pounds , was
known as S. McOulro. Ito claimed to be an
agent for a bicycle firm. The other robber
went under the name of J. Johnson. The !
railroad detectives are quite certain that both
ot the robbers were In lire employ of the
S uilicrll-P cliteuup- - ' " the - time ' of the big
strike In July last.
Fireman Nethercott , who was brought to
the hospital : hero with two bullets In his
body , will probably recover. They are all
