A band of ten robbers held up Mis

train No. 9, southbound from Chi
cago to San Antonio, near Onapa,
about 2 a. in. today, tied up the crew
with ropes, placed a guard over the
passengers and looted three express

detachment, which stopped a freight
train coming up behind and placed
the freight crew under guard to pre

Express officials refused to tell the
amount of loot taken ir the robbers,

up by the track. Borne of them were
tied to tree while members of the gang

All th care of trained railroad men
were exercised to prevent wrecks. Un
douotedly aware that they were on the
