Third Kaut and South Temple street
IiLst night, two masked men entered
tho depot and, at the point of their j
revolvers, forced Trainmaster X. S. Wilt-j
sic. in chargo of the ticket office, to open
the .afe and till. The robbers obtained
As soon as they secured the money they
left the depot and were last seen running
through Jennings avenue toward Second
West Htreot. The robbery was reported
to the police, and Duty Scrgant Ben Selff
fus and tho night detectives began to
search the city for tho robbers. Only a
meagre description could be given by
Wlltsie, and at a late hour no trace of the
bandits had been found.
The train had Just left, the station
when a man and a woman entered the
depot and inquired of Wlltsle. who was
working' at his desk in one corner of the
ticket office, whether the 10:D0 train had
gone. Without looking up ho replied
that it lind and thore would not be an
other until 11:15.
Thought It Joke.
They had Just gone out of the door
when Ihe two hold-ups walked in. aijd,
going- Ticrosir llic room, cat down.' ' Wilt
id c, busj' writing- a lotler, did not notice
them particularly, thinking they were
waiting for tho train. About five min
utes ai'lcr they sat down lie got. up and
started to go out tfto rear door to the
mail box outaldc. The two mun got up
at the sumo time and just as he started
lo open the door the shorter of tho two
shoved a gun through tho ticket window
and commanded him lo hold up his hands.
Wiltslo had his back turned toward
the window at the time. Thinking somc
ono wus trying- to play a Joke, he did
not obey until he turned and saw tho
men were masked. The robber again told
him, "Up with them," and this time,
seeing Ihero was no joke, he obeyed.
Force3 to Open Safe.
W,hllo Iho shorter of the two men held
him with his weapon through the ticket
window, his companion, who was also
armed, entered tho offico through the
open door, lie then covered the agent
while tho short man entered.
At the point of their revolvers tho two
then forced Wlltsic to unlock the safe.
As ioon as this was done they compelled
him to lio down on the floor while they
rifled the safe and the cash drawer. The
contents of the safe had been turned In
at 5 o'elock and there was only about .$50
left. This was taken, as well as about
5150 from the cash drawer.
Although the clerk of the news stand
just outside the depot door was talk
ing - to a friend within ten feet of the
office and thore was danger of interfer
ence at any moment, the robbers movud
leisurely and the holdup lasted about ten
minutes from the time they first save the
command "Ifnnde up,"
' The money obtained, with the excep
tion of 510 which tho robbers left un
touched in the till, one robber stood nt
Iho back door of the office nnd kept the
ntfent covered whilo the other parsed into
the baggage room and opened the slide
door leadlnp to the platform. The two
ran through this door and were seen by
thc clerk In the news stand to run through
the door of what was formerly the old
baggage room. Jt is supposedMhey fled
j to .North Second West Mrcet.
The robbers were described by Wlltsic
as rough-looking men. bojfh wearing over
coats and black hats. One was about
r feet 11 Inches tnll and weighed about
175 poundc. The other was abort, about
5 feet 6 Indie. 1 la waa stockllv built
and weighed about 150 pounds. Tlie tall-
er wore blue overalls, a brown coat, nnd
a soft black hat. The other waa dressed
entirely n black. Their faces wc par
j t lolly covered with Improvised masks
made of blue bandanna handkerchief.?.
The clerk of the Walsh news stand,
who was close to the oflieo when the
robbery occurred, says ho heard no un
usual sound and flr3t Haw the men when
they emerged from the baggage room
door and ran north to thu old baggage
room. Ho says he 5a w a man lounging
about tho Htatlon who anHWorod the
agent's description of the tall robber. Ho
had paid little attention to him and could
give no more accurate dencripflon.
Trainmaster Wlltsle was working- extra,
last night in placo of the regular night
