SILVER CITY, N. M.,
Two hours overdue, the horses,
covered .with fpam, galloped into
Glenwood at the top of their speed,
dragging the arlverless stage behind
them. The express packages and
mail were in the stage, but the bul
lion was gone.
A little later miners at Mongolian
and Glenwood were notified and with
in a half hour a dozen posses were
pursuing into the mountains. The
fosses found Domlniquez* body ly
Ing in the road in Confident Divide,
and nearby in a clump of weeds found
the bars of saver bullion abandoned
by the robbers. Domlniquez had two
wounds through the breast' and had
evidently been instantly killed.
At a late hour the rangers and min
ers struck a fresh trail made by two
men and were said to be close to the
desperadoes. The two robbers are be
lieved to be two Mexicans who have
been seen recently in the mountains
near the Confident Divide.
The stage company offered a reward
of $500 for the capture of the two
..men. The government will also offer
Of the bullion taken by the robbers,
seven bars belonged to the Socorro

The posses in the mountains tonight
sent to Mongolian and GJenwood for
torches wlt.h which to light the way
and continue their hunt all night. The
federal post office authorities also
took a hand in the pursuit tonight, and
reports received shortly before mid
night indicate that, the robbers were

nother Auto Accident.
OSKALOOSA, Aug. 6.—Ed. McElroy,
aged 30, was seriously injured in an
automobile accident here laBt night.
With a party of others, he was thrown
from the ccr when the driver, in at
tempting to avoid striking a bridge,
turned the car too suddenly and
caused it to turn turtle. McElroy was
caught between the auto and a tree
and was suspended in the air until
rescued by others of the party. His
head was badly crushed and he is in
a critical condition.

half a score of heavily armed posses,
composed of miners and mounted
rangers, tonight are close upon the
heels of the two robbers who early to
day shot from ambush and killed Jose
Domlniquez, driver of Marriot's stages
and fled with ue twelve bars of gold
and silver bullion valued at $18,000.
Late reports from the scene of tne
man hunt indicated that the hunters
had taken the trail of the bandits and
that the latter were being run to
cover and -that their capture was
That there will ue a fight when the.
robbers are cornered, no one doubts.
The robbery and more especially
the shooting down of the stage driv
er, has aroused the miners in the
mountains as has nothing in years and
the robbers who are believed to be
Mexicans, know that they will be
given summary justice If they are ever
taken alive. The two men are known
to be heavily armed.
Few expect that the posses will
take $.ny prisoners. The fact that all
the bullion taken by the robbers,
eight gold and four silver bars, has
been found and returned to its own
ers has not altered the determination
of the miners to shoot to kill.
