ENGINEER . IGNORED SIGNAL
Passed Sign of Danger at Eapid fiato and
BANDITS ENTER STAID NEW ENGLAND
Hake Vnsnvcessful Attempt to Hold
I'd Train on New York, New Haven
Hartford Road In Rhode
WOONSOCKET, It. I.. Sept M. -Because
the trained ' eye of Engineer George W.
Boaa recognized in the awkward swing- of
a lantern tha work of a novice he pulled
the throttle wide open and drove bis train
awlftly by a danger slg-nul set dead against
him and frustrated what la believed to
have been an attempt to hold up the boat
train at Pluminer'a Jodge, a lonely spot a
mile north of Whltin's atatlon on tha
New York, New Haven ft Hartford rail
road laat night. Four cars, full of passen
gers, unconscious of peril met and avoided,
were landed safely In Providence, and the
engineer, who had assumed an awful re
sponsibility, repaired to the office of Su
perintendent A. It. Whaley to report that
he had matched his judgment against the
Iron-clad orders of the road and won.
That there waa a deliberate attempt by
ten men to hold up the train there waa
little doubt, but little waa known of the
matter until tonight when Deputy Sheriff
Bucon was called Into the case by Superin
tendent Whaley and, fully armed, took bia
place by the aide of the engineer and
accompanied the train from Worcester to
Providence.' Ha will ride on the engine
again' tomorrow night, and In the mean
time the police are scouring this section
of the state, to locate the gang described
by the engineer.
Tha boat train drew out of Worcester at
t:10 last night and was due in Providence
at 7:20. It had reached a point within
an eighth of a mile of Plummer's Lodgg.
where Engineer Boss saw a green signal
light. Indicating a clear track. Suddenly
the light changed to red and the engineer
closed the throttle and aet the airbrakes.
Light Swan I'neaslly.
As he did so a lantern waa swung across
tha track, but not In the easy manner
acquired by experienced trainmen, and It
flashed across Boas' mind that the man
who gave the signal waa not stopping the.
train for any good purpose. For a second
he hesitated, balancing la his mind the
chances of wrecking his train If he went
on and the probability of Its pasaengera
being robbed and perhaps killed If he
brought It t a standstill.
As far aa he could see an unobstructed
track lay before biin. Another second and
his mind was made up and he rushed
past the s'gnal. Leaulug out of his cab.
Engineer Boas aaw the man with the lan
tern jump from the track, two other men
atandlng on the ladder holding the station
ary light and tampering with the signal.
While seven other men were lined up along
the roadbed. Immediately on reaching
Providence he reported the matter to Su
perintendent Whaley, who at once started
an Investigation of all the clrcumstancea.
and later gave Deputy Sheriff Bacon charge
of the case. The boat train Is followed a
few mlnutea later by an express and mall
train and it is thought that the attempt
waa perhapa directed against the latter
train, which waa confused with the boat

who la in command. The letter waa writ
ten In the Barentz aea on July 20 and was
brought south by a aealer whom American
met by happy chance, immense quantities
of Ice were encountered, there was a
strange absence of animal life, and many
dead birds were seen on the cakes of float
ing Ice. It Is thought that there must
have been soma unusual disturbance of
nature In that part of the polar regions to
account for these conditions, and tha letter
will be of Interest to scientists. The letter
la dated July 29, 1&3, and reads as fulluws:

strange silence from the lack of lite that

Bwlts City division of tha Illinois Central !
was built It waa known aa the. Indiana &
Illinois Southern. It waa a narrow-gauge
road, the . roadbed waa bad, the engines
and cars were built on a miniature acalo,

been on time the fact would have been
regarding as a miracle. The road was known
aa the "Try-Weakly."
