following me and covering me with his gun.
We were then ordered to get on the en
gine and run up with the car to the whitt
ling post this side of Woodlawn. When the
car stopped the express messenger and the
baggageman opened the door and got down
on tha ground. When the boys got on the
ground the robbers lined ua all up against
the car and made us bold up our hands
and held us there covered by their guns.
Th leader then said to the messenger:
"Hand qver the keys to the safe."
"The messenger was then, ordered to get
tn the car, the leader following behind
and covering blm with a shooting Iron. In
abort time both men came out ot the car
nd the robber said with an oath:
Blat "are Blpvva Open.
; " 'The messenger has the money bid and
I am going to blow the car to hell.'
"Then he told one of his men to bring
the grip, at the same time ordering Clay
burg and myself, the messenger and the
baggageman to walk up to the front of the
engine and aland there in front of the
blinding headlight, one of the robbers keep
ing watch over us with hla gun.
"The leader and one of bis confederates
then went back to the' express car with the
bag of dynamite and blew the big safe open.
It must have taken two blasts to do the Jqb,
ss there were two distinct explosions. Then
when this waa done they returned to where
we were and the leader ordered us all In, the
engine and told the engineer to, open the
throttle and pull ahead. Tbie Is the, last
we saw of the bold ups, we ran about ten
yards and stopped, but the whole outfit
hsd disappeared In the darkness.
"Was I scared? Well, , yes, at first, but
after that I felt a dazed sensation and went
about more like a man In a dream. The
robbers wore masks in the form of bandana
handkerchiefs tied over their facea and
Trom tha eyee down their features were con
cealed from view. '
Messenger Waa Nervy. '
James Lupton. the express messenger,
fays that when be beard a commotion at the
first stoppage he figured out that it wa
a holdup. He hastily opened the small safe
In the car. which contained all of the
money to which be had access. He grabbed
all of the money packagea therefrom but
ohe, threw them under the sove and hur
riedly locked the safe again.
He" bad just accomplished this w hen there
waa a knock upon the car door and a de
mand to open It. He made no response and
the demand was repeated several times.
( Finally bo heard the voice of Engineer Clay
burg. It requested the opening of the
door and assured the messenger that unless
he complied the engineer would himself be
required to explode the dynamite that would
blow It open. Complying with this demand
Lupton opened the door. He waa ordered
to climb down out of the car by fho rob
bers and was escorted by one of them some
distance along th track away from the car.
Later bo waa taken back to the car and was
asked to open ibe sate.
' "I can't open that one," said Lupton,
pointing to the big through aafo.
"We know that," was the prompt re
sponse. "It Is the other one that we want
you to ope."
The robbers evidently knew enough about
the express business to be able to tell which
waa the local safe to which the messenger
carried the combination and which waa the
through aafe, to which he had no access.
When Lupton opened the small aafe and It
waa found to be comparatively empty the

RAVENNA, Neb., Oct. 11. (Special Tele.
gram.) Engineer Abraham ' Clayburg says
about three miles outj of Lincoln regular
stop signals were seen and the train waa
flagged In a regular manner with red lap
terns. Tbla fact waa what deceived tbe
engineer and he did not suspect a holdup
until three men appeared alongside the
engine and one addresaed the fireman.
telling him to get down.
The fireman Immediately recognized tbo
purpose of the order and told Engineer
Clayburg. The fireman did not obey the
order and one of tbe men sprang into the
cab of tbe engine and covered the en
gineer and fireman with a revolver. As
soon as the engineer realized that the
train was held up he pulled the throttle

Tbe other two robbers had made some

the express car standing on a bridge. They
then ordered the train pulled" up a short
distance, 'when -they madothe fireman'-g'o

express cars from tbe train. The three
men. then got aboard the engine. with the
engineer and fireman and .at tbe point ot
their guns ordered them to move forward.

up the track the robbers ordertd a halt and
compelled Engineer Clayburg and tbe fire
man to walk ahead of them to the ex
press car door. They demanded that tbe
doors be opened, but the express messen
ger, refused to comply. They then placed
stick of dynamite about one inch In diam
eter and ten , inches In length In Clay
burg's bands and ordered him to light the
fuse. Clayburg, lighting for time, pre
tended he could not light it. Tbe mes-
senger was warned not to shoot, for Clay
burg and the fireman were required to
stand next to the door and in front ot
the robbers. He dsred not shoot or at
tempt any defense of tbe car for fear of
ahooting either the engineer or tbe fireman.

Tbe messenger finally opened tbe door

the engineer and fireman they were marched
forward at the point of a . revolver in the
bands of one of the robbers to a point
some little distance from the train. Tha
trainmen were obliged to stand In the light
of the headlight while the robber stood
obscured In the shadow to one aide.
Within five minutes after tbe robbers
entered the car the first explosion took
ple.ee. The explosion made a fearful crash,
Indicating tbe use of a very heavy charge.
Five minutes later there was a second ex-

messenger, "All right." The three men
were tbea marched to the engine and or-
dered to. climb on and tbe engineer waa
dlt.ecU(j to move forward
Clayburg moved the engine forward
few feet, then suddenly reversed, hoping
by these tactics to get the robbers In the
, glare of the headlight, thereby getting
b(,..er ,ook at them. But the effort was
futile. They Immediately disappeared in
the weeds and shrubbery alongside the
track and were lost to view. Tbe engineer
could not see anything of tbe men and
cannot say In which direction they went,
although he Is strongly of the opinion that
they went east.
. ' ftory of tha Conductor,
Conductor Charles Lyman realised that a
holdup had1 occurred as soon as the train
stooped the second time. He had been
through a similar experience once before,
about two years ago, the holdup occurring
at almost the same point. When the train
tto" h" mUed "f '.th ",t'b"'! f
one of tne forward cara. immediately
there waa a gruff order to get' back In the
car, emphaalsed by two shots' from a re

but the danger waa practically over ao far
as they were roncernsd.
There waa no panic or excitement, al
though some ot tha more cautleua ones
proceeded to secrete their valuables. None

This was. hla second experience of similar
character, he having been on Conductor
Lyman's train at the time It was held up
