A continuance to Thursday, April 28, haa

who haa not fully recovered from bla
recent attack of heart failure, and alee on
account of the fact that the further post
ponament of the hearing will suit the
convenience of Judge Woodruff and of
counsel ea both sides.
At first H waa suggested by counsel for
Major Richmond when It became apparent
that the latter would not be well enough to
resume hla place on the witness atand to
day to postpone the hearing for another
week. Thla waa aatlafactory to Attorney
Ocranal Byers. but when judge Woodruff,
who la holding court In Avoca waa com

BENECTA. Cel., April 1.1 -The China-
Japan mail, which left an Francisco over
the Bourhern Pacific railway for the east
at o'clock Saturday night, was held up
by two masked men at prlg, two miles
east of here at 12:30 o'clock yesterday and
robbed of nine pouches of registered mall.
The train carried no express matter.
Four of the pouches have been recovered.
but the robbers rifled the others and now
re hiding In the hills and canyons be
tween Martine and Oakland. Sheriffs'
posses from two counties, detectives snd
postofflce Inspector on horse and in au
tomobiles are 'engaged. In the man hunt.
The robbers are well armed and a battle
s anticipated.
The passengers on the train were not
disturbed and sevsral of them did not
earn ef the robbery until this morning.
After getting ths mail sacks the robbers
cut the engine loose from the train and
sent it wild, throttle open, down the main
track te the east
In ths direct path of the engine waa a
section of passenger train No. 5, west
bound, heavily loaded. But for the pres
ence of mind of a telegraph operator at
Bulsan a serious collision would have
taken place. The engine waa thrown Into
a ditch In th nick of time. The train
robbery is the first In California for sev
eral years. It was plotted and executed
In a daring, spectacular fashion.
M ea Cllaae la Eaarlae.
Before the fast mail arrived at Benlcia,
two men who had left Oakland on an
other train two hour earDer and bad left
their train on the Port Costa ferry
climbed unobserved on ths rear end of
the fast mall's locomotive. The train had
gone less than five miles from Benlcia
when the stowaways crawled over the
oil tank of the tender and pointed re
volvers at ths heads of the engineer and
fireman, ordering them to slop, the en
gine and get off.
We are not going to hurt you," said
one of the robbers. "All we want la the
treasure box."
"Take us to the express car."
When Informed by the train crew that the
train carried no express matter, they said;
"Then take na to the mall car."
Arriving there they threatened to blow It
up with dynamite if the door was not
opened. Under this threat. Herbert B.
Black, In charge of the car and his as
sistant. Thomas W. Clancy appeared at the
door. The robbers compelled the engineer
and fireman to enter the car with orders to
"throw out the registered mail packages."
Kewsaaaera Dlda't Da.
Black started to toss out the newspaper
sacks, but the robber detected the ruse at
once. They threatened to kill the clerk un
less he gave them the registered mail.
Black complied. The engine crew then was
forced to carry the nine sacks to the en
gine. The engine ard mall ear were then un
coupled from the coaches filled with sleep
ing passenger and run down the track two
miles. Here the mail pouches were thrown
out. the engine uncoupled, and its throttle
pushed wide open. The engine dashed for
ward on Its wild Journey toward a pas
senger train coming- westward to Tolenas, '
sixteen mites east, passing the first sec
tion on a siding at Cygnua.
As the engine passed ths station at Bul
san, the operator noticed it waa running
wild. Ha Immediately reported to the dis
patcher's office at Oakland a 1 received In
structions to call Tolenas and Instruct them
to derail the on-coming engine. Second
section of train No. 5, westbound, had
Just arrived at Tolenas under order to
wait there for the China-Japan MalL The
switch was thrown and the runaway en
gine, by this time, pretty well relieved of
steam, ran on a siding and smashed Into a
string of box cars.
Robbers Croaa Bay.
In the meantime the robbers were mak
ing their escape across Ean Pablo bay Into
which the Sacramento river empties. The
new of the robbery had gone up and down
the line and posses were quickly formed.
Just before fleeing with the mail sacks
the robbers fired four shots, to frighten
off Immediate pursuit. Even this did not
awaken the passengers. The porter heard
the shots and locked all the doors to the
Bleeping car. The train lay engineiess for
some time while an engine was secured
from Sacramento. It then waa hurried Into
Sacramento, arriving at C o'clock this
A good description of the bandits waa
furnished by a man on the ferry boat, who
had observed them as they ' hung about
Port Costa waiting for the train. They
appeared to be railway mechanics and from
their familiarity with the engine officials
it is thought the robbers are former rail
way employes. 1
Their trail has been followed to the
rough hill country between Martine and
Oakland and it Is believed they are beaded
toward San Francisco and have a good
chance to escape.
Eeeaae Made to Water. '
Near where the bandits left the engine,
a road leads to the east bank of the bay.
The men ran down this road to a row boat
concealed in the bushes. The four sacks
they did not take with them were found
later along the edge of the track. They
evidently had fallen from the engine after
It had been uncoupled from the train.
From the point where their boat was
moored, the bandits rowed directly across
the bay to Bulls Head point, one and a
half miles east of Martinet There they
abandoned the boat. In climbing the bank
one of the men slipped and lost a SS-call-
bre revolver and a pair of field glasses.
This made three clues for the officers to
work on.
From the point where the boat was aban
doned all trace of the men waa lost, but
before daylight a horse and buggy were
stolen, supposedly by the robbers, from a
stable in alanines.
Between 1 and 4 o'clock In the morning
George Fraxier. a farmer living three
mllea east of Martinez, heard a horse and
buggy driven past hla house at a wild
pace. Thla has lent definite directions to
ths chaiw, which early la Um afternoon

leading to Oakland.
Sheriff Veals of Contra Costa county was
ths first official to start after the ban
dits. With a posse he left Marlines at
I o'clock in the morning. They crossed
from the west shore of the bay in a
launch to the point where the bandits em
barked for the. west shore. So quickly

th charge of misrepresentation in con
nection with the sale of paintings, alleged
to be the work of great masters, whereas
they are only copies, has caused a great
sensation. The De Gatlgnys, with their
four children, lived lavishly and gave bril
liant entertainments.
A magistrate today ordered a search of
their chateau at St. Cyr-Sur-Loue. and this
resulted In ths seizure of extensive corre
spondence and many valueless paintings,
some of which are said to have been
labeled with notices intending to prove
their authenticity, as if they were destined
to bf sold In the United Etates.
Count de Gatlgny has been regarded as
a man of mystery. He Is said to have
been born In taondon In 1S67. He waa a
great traveler and sometimes went under
th name of Prince Lusignan and Prince
Borghetto. His wife, who was a Miss
Lunt. waa born In Boston In 1869. They
were married In 1S96. Their fetes and en
tertainments in their gaily lighted and
magnificently furnished chateau, which
were attended by the aristocracy, have long
been the talk of the country. Several
years ago Mr. Paine, who has a passion
for paintings, visited the chateau and was
struck by the wonderful art gallery, the
greater part of which he purchased. An
expert visiting his Paris mansion, where
he examined the collection, declared that
tha alleged Corots. COrreggios, Muiillos and

The return trip, from the castle, by an
other route, was marked by similar demon
strations, and when Budapest waa reached
at o'clock tonight the former president
was fairly mobbed at the station, which. In
spite of the heavy downpour of rain, was
surrounded by thousands of Hungarians,
cheering wildly. The mayor of Budapest
and representatives from all the societies
In the city were there to meet Colonel
Roosevelt when he stepped out on the plat
form, while hundreds of railroad men from
the yarda clambered on top of the train to
take part In the demonstration.
The university students massed outside
the building sang the Star Spangled Ban
ner as the ex-presldent was whisked away
to his hotel, through solid walla of people
who had waited patiently In the rain to
see the distinguished American paaa. At
the hotel another multitude had gathered
and refused to depart until Colonel Roose
velt appeared on the balcony to acknowl
edge the greeting.
In his brief speech to the crowds around
the hotel, he reiterated, what he had aald
throughout the day In reply to the words
of welcome that had greeted him at va
rious points. He recognized, he said, the
courage, devotion and chivalry of the Hun
garians, and he especially pleased them
when he declared that one who lived as he
hatl among the .cattlemen of the great
west could best appreciate the extraor
dinary character of the descendants of
horsemen, who had followed - Arpad, th
magic national hero, into the plains ot
Central Europe.
After all was over tonight. Colonel
Roosevelt said that his reception re
minded him of demonstrations he had wit
nessed at tha height of a hot political cam
paign at home. He could only account for
It on the theory that to tha Hungarians ha
represented ths idea deeply rooted In
America of liberty and. human rights.
The Hungarians evidently were deter
mined to ehow Colonel Roosevelt that he
had touched their hearts and to. make his

Maj. McWhortcr
Wins at Bridge
and Loses Prize
Makes Two Weeks' Guest Card Bo for
. Tear and Then the Tale
CHICAGO. April IS. 5peclal Telegram.)
If you had made a two weeks' guest
card to the Chicago Athletic association
stick for one year, and had thus estab
lished yourself in an expenstve member
ship, and had played in ths club's monthly
bridge tournament and won first prls
wouldn't It make you Irritable to lose both
the prize and the overworked guest card?
At any rate, that Is the way 8. A. Mo
Whorter of Omaha and Chicago feels about
It, and he's the loser sforesald.
A. J. Whit, of tha board of trade firm
of the same name, was sponsor for Mr.
McWhortcr. who also Is In the grain and
provision business, giving to him a card
about a year ago. The ordinary cird la
good for two week a
Mr. McWhorter liked the Chicago Ath
letic assoclstlon and visited It daily, so
often In fact, that the doorman did not re
quire him to show his card and finally
concluded he was a member. Most of the
members did, too, so It was no wonder
when the entries for the March bridge
tournament were being compiled that some
one said:
"Major (they called him thus at the
club), why don't you enter? Tou play a
good game."
"Well. I will." responded Major Mc
Whortcr, and he did and captured the
handsome traveling bag. with Its s lver out
flttings, that was the first prise.
When the committee In charge compiled
the results for Cherry Circle, the club
paper, the winner's Initials were missing,
and the membership list fa. led to reveal
any sch person on the rolls. Thn the
tale unraveled itself.
