Davenport. lowa. Nov. 22.— Train No. 11, west

Josoph and Kansas City express, was h«=ld up at
11:30 o'clock last night, three miles west of this
city, by masked bandits, who cut off the express
and baggage cars, forced the engineer to run two
■miles up the track, blew tip the through express
safe with dynamite, and escaped with their booty.
The train, which was due to leave here at I<T:3B
p. m.. was thirty-five minutes late, and pulled out
for the West after a short halt. It had Just

on the tr?ck, and brought hi.- train to a stop.
As he slowed down two robbers sprang on the
footboard ot the engine and covered him and the
fireman with revolvers While the engine crew
tras thus kept quiet others of the gang menaced
tue crew and passengers in the coaches. One of
the adits uncoupled the express and baggage
cars from the rest of the train, and then the engi
neer was ordered to start his engine. Two miles
w est of Roekioghajn there la a stretch of heavily
Timbered country, and in this the engineer was
ordered to come to a y bait. The bandits blew up
the rough safe with dynamite, and used an ex
tremely heavy charge. The noise of the explosion
was heard in Davenport.
After wrecking the safe the robbers mounted the
engine and ran it down the track.
The train was the Cast westbound express, which
left Chicago at 6:"6 o'clock last night, and which
rues through to Fort Worth. Tex., by way of St.
Joseph and Kansas City. The name of the engi

Mr. Dady then went on to pay that he was the

That he ever got any direct word from Mayor Low

QT'O WARRAXTO ZTTT T\ ORDER
APPELLATE DECISION NOT A BAR TO RE
MOVAL OF POLICE CAPTAINS.
Although nineteen police captains who were
appointed by th* Tammany Police Board when
York and Sexton were able to manipulate the
Civil Service Visible lists in the interests of
their favorites, were feline happy yesterday
over the decision of th* Appellate Division in
Brooklyn, their elation may be short lived. The
decision, while it disposes of the taxpayer's
sun brought by J. Warren Greene, does not
prevent other proceedings that may yet show
that the appointment of the nineteen captains
was illegal. The decision in effect is that th*
title to a public office can be tested only hv
quo warranto proceedings in the courts, and
that a taxpayer has no standing in the courts
to bring: injunction proceedings, except when
waFte of public money is threatened. This is
made plain by Justice Woodward's words:
ti7 \ defendants are holding positions to which
iney nave been appointed under the forms of
•aw. They are holding office under color of
ngnt, and the question of the title to the office
is the one which is in fact involved. The ap
propriate remedy, and an adequate one. Is by
information in the nature of quo warranto. '
The question now is whether or not the At
torney General of the State will authorize the
quo warranto proceedings which the Appellate
division says are proper and adequate to decide
if police captains who were appointed in viola-
on of fairness can be permitted to hold on to
their offices. It is expected that an application
to the Attorney General will be made without
loss of time.

Eugene C Bell, when seen at his home last
night, said he thought his place was set afire
and that the papers which were in a strong box
in the office safe were extracted by some person
who know the exact situation there. He said:
"The fire took place on December 26, when
we were very busy and no one could ever ac

Sree hours, and examined every nook, corner

TAGRAXT HORSE SEEKS AID.
HE FOLLOWS POLICEMAN INTO STATION
KILLED BT B. P. C A.
To the policeman it was funny, chiefly because of
the schoolboy adage that a red head attracts a
white horse. It was In the Tenderloin, where
funny things and pitiful things happen nightly and
where sorrow provokes laughter.
The policeman. Willard Miller. as already im
plied had red hair peeping from under his helmet.
As he stood with his back to the curb he felt a
nudge He paid no attention to it. There .run- a
second nudge. and he turned to confront an old.
tottering skeleton of what had been a white horse.
Man as Is the custom of some of his ilk. had used
him until he was no longer a source of income;
then turned him away to be knocked on the head.
Almost like some broken down Tenderloin
rounder was the animal, drooping, shambling.
hopeless, looking for a friend. He had nudged
many but received only blows. Appeal, hun
eer for companionship, sadness, spoke from those
big eyes, fearful yet confiding, ad they looked Into
the policeman's. _.._..
They plumbed his heart, too. as no Tenderloin
habitue ever did.
"Funny " he muttered, "even a. vagrant horse
cornea to us. What will Ido with him? He's
not 'a suspicious. 1 nor -a disorderly. 1 nor *» drunk. 1

PRA I B E FO R n VPT. STEWA RT.
1 RESIDENT OF UNDERWRITERS' BOARD
APPROVES HIS FIREPROOFED WOOD
ORDER.
The strict orders that Superintendent Perez
M. Stewart, of the Bureau of Buildings, Issued
last week, against the use of woods that have
not been properly proofed, as well as the
recent agitation against the renewal of the
ordinance allowing the us<* of the parlor match,
have me! with the approbation of the New-York
Board of Fire Underwriters, and many of them
have declared that if the strict laws are fol
lowed without deviation, buildings In the future
will be more fireproof than ever before, and
property better protected against spontaneous
combustion.
Superintendent Stewart has said:
1 .<••. carrying out the law on this subject
to the letter. No Interests can bring to bear
any influence on thr department. My inspect
on have positive instruction:* to that effect and
must obey them.
William A. Anderson superintendent of the
New-York Board of Fire: Underwriters, has
favored more stringent rules against the use
of nbn-fireprbofed woods, and says that the rule
of Superintendent Stewart, causing over 100,000
feet of 80-called (Ireproofed wood, which was
found to be not fireproof, to be taken out of
buildings In course of construction, was a w ise
departure from the method that has heretofore
prevailed. He sal.l yesterday:
It Is very proper that this wood should be posi
tively tire "resilient, or not used at all under that
name. During the last two weeks I understand that
[00000 feet or more, has been rejected. Even in
the Hattery Place Building lti.Ou) feet was rejected,
which was furnishe.l by a Newark concern, Wood
of a Harlem concern has been rejected in the Flat
iron Butlding, where It w,-is to be used for flooring;
as well as wood in the Hanover National Bank
t?ul!ding Those are only a few of many, I am
told. I nave always instptt-d that to preserve build
inns against fire, -and also to keep th» fire risks
aslowas possible, »h<^ Building Department should
ma lc# the laws for Ireproonng just as strict as
possibly can be donf. From what Superintendent
Stewart ha? done It looks as if at last we were
going to get as strict an interpretation of the law
an Inns ever been secured.
1 do not wish to saj anything lenin^t any of
the fireproof companies; but I must say that they
have r>o right to allow woo.lv. supposedly properly
treated to . sent to buildings for use, unless
they nrV. I have had great experience in my busi
ness in g<?t»li:u '■'<>'• risks properly adjusted, and 1
have always found that flreproofed woods treated
hy the electric process have been absolutely flre
resisterit. i understand thai Mr. Stewart has a.e
cepted ill of this kind that have l*>ri\ offered for
use. other . however, hnv»- been accepted, always
conditionally, thai upon examination they are
as represented.
Besides the strld laws on (ireprootlng, the agita
tion i.tninst thn use of the parlor match Is excel
lent. Our Board of Fire i i derwriters has adopted
a resolution ".gainst its future use I cannot say
officially, but I think it certainly ought to reduce
fire risks If the- parlor match la done away with
in this city.
Paul Rterrett, •■! the George A. Fuller Con
struction Company, said:
I ii. i »;!a'i that Mr. Stewart is making the laws
strict Our company deslrea to ereo.t fireproof
buildings, as we are told to do, but »f wood creeps
in 'ii ■ is not fl reproof where it should he. we
ar< not to blame 1 believe that In the Flatiron
Builtling some wood, to be used for floorings, from
a Harlem company was rejected by building in
spectors. We will replace it by fireproofed wood
that Is accepted ami passed. It Is our intention to

>!!\rr\l\ LOWELL'S VOVEL CASE,
RETIRED FOR DISABILITY, HE WANTS TO RE
STTMI 1 : ACTIVE SKRVICK.
Washington, Nov. 22. — Almost without precedent
in the history of the War Department Is the appli
cation of Chaplain D. R. Lowell, retired, to return
to active duty. Chaplain Lowell, whose home is in
Connecticut, was retired In 1897 for disability In line
i»f duty. He believes he baa receovered'from tlie
incapacity sufficiently to justify his present applica
tion, and desires to nerve the government until re
tired by ase, on Novemb.-r 29, 1910. There Is no law
to |if-rmit his reinstatement, and it will i.-- neces
sary for him to appeal to Congress; Th«> only other
similar Instance is that of Captain Robert W.
Dowdy, L'-d Infantry, who, after being retired for
incapacity, which afterward proved temporary se
cured tho passage of a law returning him to' the
active list. Chaplain Lowell's course is recHvtn«»
praise In army circles.
THE i'i;r\T CLOTH MARKET.
[BY TE LEG RAF a TO THE YRiri;\F.|
Kail River. Mass.. Nov. 22.— Local brokers report
that the sales of the week in the print cloth mar
ket ar< estimated at 75.000 to 100.000 pieces, divided
unions the different styles of goods. Mill men
report the week to have been one of unusual quiet
for this season of the year, the sales being much
lighter than the total for the corresponding period
of previous years. Prices for all styles have con
tinued unchanged, but the bidding for goods has
been Inactive, buyers apparently beinK Indifferent
as to whether cloth Is purchased or not. New- York
and Philadelphia reports Indicate that the printe-.s
are only ordering enough goods to supply their pres
ent »l*-nutndr. which call for Irr mediate or nearby
deliveries. Mills here are well protected up to
February, and beyond this month there is little or
no demand for goods. A factor in the situation la
the cotton market, and it is plain to be seen that
all concerned in the trade are a wait In X informa
tion which will foretell the probable future course
for the market for raw material. It Is conceded
that the market conditions for cloth will be affected
