Tho story of Express Messenger Peterson
Is very similar to that of James. He says
while the engines were being exchanged lie
was lying In the car, and was In adore
when tho conductor yelled "all aboard."
An Instant later n masked man attempted
to get Into the car, firing a revolver as he
did so, Peterson awoko to the sltustlou,
nnd as tho man entered tho car lie drew hit
revolver and retUrnod tbe Intruder's nhot,
and advancing upon him forced the man
back out ot the CHr, At that moment Ihe
fireman ran across the platform and the
robber fired at him, the shot taking effect
in the fireman's neck. Peterson was greatly
excited, but was determined to defend lift
safe as long as pooslble. Ho thought ht
saw another man outside, but It atterwsrdi
proved to have lecn the conductor. He
also thinks the men were drunk, and that
the original plan was to rob the train east

Messenger Seward, o( the Wells-Kargo
Express, states that for several Uipi prior
to the attempted robbery he had noticed a
gang of ten or twelve armed cowboys
ramped at the side of the track several
miles from Coolldge, and that be believes
these were the parties who concocted the
icbeme brrob the train. When he passed
Coolldge llilt morning the town was still
greatly excited, and a large gang of heavily-armed
cowboys were hanging around
tbe depot platform, eagerly listening to
