Kansas City, August 17. Tho l'ucillc
Express Company lost $00,000 by n train
robbery on the Missouri l'acitlc railway
early this morning.
It was tho Kansas City limited that
fell into the hands of the bandits. The
train was crowded with passengers and
tho safe of tho Express company was
gtulled with money consigned, much of
it, to western banks. The train left
Tipton, Missouri, about 3 a. in. Two
mysterious figures were seen by tho en
cineer lurking around tho forward end of
tho train but no particular attention was
paid to them. Just after leaving
Tipton, tho firemnn returned toward the
tender to lire up and looked squarely
into the muzzle of two revolvers in the
hands of two masked men. They had
evidently boarded tho platform of the
"blind" mail car at Tipton and were
crawling over the tender toward tho
engine. One of the bandits covered tho
fireman with his revolver while the
other took care of the engineer. They
were told to hold up their hands.

"Now you run this train to Ottcrvillo
water tank," ordered tho leader, "and
stop there. If you attempt to stop at
any other place, or give a signal of
alarm, you'll be a dead man." and the
robbers placed their weapons close to
the heads of their victims.
The engineer and fireman were at the
bandits' mercy and could only obey.

Tho James boys committed one of their

"You come with me," the leader ad

the fireman," he said to his companion.
Tho engineer was commanded to go to
the express car and tell the messenger
to open tho door. When he i cached the
express car ho found the two robbers

The engineer walked to tho door of
tho express car and covered by tho

Express Messenger Sam Avery, to open
tho door. Avery suspecting no danger
pushed back tho door. As lie did so the
leaders of tho robbers and ono confed
ate pushed their revolvers in
and ordered the messenger to
hold up his hands. Tho order
was promptly obeyed and three of the
robbers jumied into tho ear. They
proceeded immediately to thu safe,
which was locked. Avery was com
manded to open it at the point of a
revolver. He did so. Ono of tho rol
bers then unfolded a gunny sack and
into it were placed tho entire contents
of the safe.

In the meantime tho conductor,
alarmed at the unusual stopping of tho
train, went forward to see what was the
trouble. He got only as far as tho rear
end of tho express car when he
was halted by one of the robbers, who
told him to go back and collect tickets.
The conductor hurried back to the first
passenger coach and excitedly informed
tho passengers what was going on and
advised them to hide their valuables.
Monev, watches, jewelry and everything
valuable was shoved into loot tops, into
cracks of tho cushioned seats and any
where to get it out of sight. Tho con
ductor had just warned tho passengers

Shot Near UN Hume
San Fiianoikco, August 17. About
12:30 o'clock this morning, Samuel
Jacobson, who lives on tho corner of
California and Webster streets, was shot
in the abdomen when near his residence
by two masked men.
Mr. Jacobson had been In town and
was returning home. Ho was on the
last car but ono nnd got off at
Webster street. As ho stepped to
wards tho sidewalk ho was met by
two masked men who told him to throw
up his hands. Tho words were hardly
uttered, and Mr. Jacobson had not time
to obey before a shot was fired by ono of
tho men, tho bullet entering tho abdo-
men. As soon as tho shot was fired
both men ran and mado their escape in
the darkness. It is supjtosed that the
object of tho assault was roblx-rynnd
that tho shot was tho result of nervous
ness on the part of tho would-be-robbers.
The police have been working on tho
caso all day and say they do not beliovo
tho shooting was done by footpads.
Frank Hecox, janitor at the Cooper
Medical Institute, says ho passed the
corner of California and Webster streets
not ten minutes before the shooting was
done. Ho saw two men crouching in
tho shade of .lacobson's iiouso and a lew
minute's later neard the shot tired.
Jacobson is dangerously wounded and
his injuries may provo fatal.

City ok Mexico, August 18. A des
patch from Tegucigalpa says that in
answer to Kzeta's lequest that Honduras
explain her attitude in the present diffi
culty, Sefior Xelaya, Honduras Secretary
of Foreign affairs, has answered: "It
is true that Honduras has placed and is
still placing troops on the frontiers of
Honduras and Salvador. This has leen
done for four reasons.
First. You called to arms and armed
Honduras refugees inciting them to
invade Honduras, because Honduras
refused to recognize tho state of airairs
brought on by General Ezeta in Salva
dor on the night of January 22.
Second. Tho unjustified and illegal
treatment accorded to Honduras by
your government, even to tho shooting,
by order of Colonel Rramek, of Calixto
Axcosto, a peaceful Honduran, at San
Antonio Moretaj which was a flagrant
violation of all international right and
Third. Salvador has suspended, with
out right or justice, all cable com
munication between Honduras and the
United States and Europe, to the
detriment of commerce and industry.
Fourth. Salvador has ordered the
suspension of commercial, jKtstal and
telegraphic communication between Sal
vador and Honduras.
These facts are the cause of tho pre
sent nttitude of Honduras, and until Sal
vador changes her tactics or peace be
arranged, Honduras as a sister and a
friend of Guatemala, will conserve and
strengthen the attitude adopted by
Guatemala against Salvador.
In Guatemala tho peace negotiations
are nearly concluded. Everything is
quiet. There has been only a partial
change in the cabinet. The rumors of
tho flight or resignation of President
Barillas are unfounded.

City ok Mexico, August 17. Dis
patches from Guatemala say President
Barrillos yesterday received the mem
bers of tho diplomatic corps, who called
to ascertain his terms of peace. Ho
responded that the only terms were the
retirement of Ezeta from tho govern
ment of Salvador and tho reestablish
ment of tlie state of affairs existing
prior to tho death of Menendez nnd that
Salvador treat Honduras and Guatemala
as allies and not foster rebellion against
Governor Cnrracosa, of Chiapias, tel
egraphs that tho State forces have been
active in preventing tho crossing of
Mexicans and Guatemalan refugees
into Guatemala with revolutionary in
tent, but numbers of Mexicans have
gone to Salvador where they are offer

President Diaz ordered tho authorities
in tho frontier to exercise the strictest
vigilance to preserve neutrality toward
Salvador. It is rumored that President
Ezeta will open hostilities tomorrow.

Plays Now Running in
Tho "Prince and Pauper"
Not a Success.
How the "Fellahs, Dcah Hoys,"
Carry Their Canes by the
San Fkancisco, August 15. Has tho
Phieiiix dudo caught on to tho latest
English stylo of wearing his cane. It is
not exactly a new thing now, having
been the "propah capah" for several
mouths, but it has hung fire, as it were,
in San Francisco nnd the fad is now only
blossoming out in all its beauty.(V) As
to tho "capah," the swell grasps his
cane just a little below the middle and
holds it with the ferrule pointing for
wards nnd slightly upwards. He then
crooks his elbow turning tho cane
slightly in, his fingers holding the cane
much us they would a pinch of
salt, and thero you are. Quito
a lot of tho "fellahs" are wearing their
canes this way now up here and they
furnish an edifying spectacle, in that
you learn how nicely an ass can look
when dressed in fine clothes. But,
when I see a man I beg all men's
pardon, 1 mean a dude carrying his
cane in this uircctcd way, I breathe a
prayer that something may drop on him.
Elsie Leslie is nt the Baldwin with
tho latest development of tho "kid
drama," "The 1'rinco and tho Pauper."
She camo hero with the reputation
of being tho best of all the child
actors. Perhaps sho is, she does
not really have a fair chance in
this dramatization of .Mark Twain's
story. But I much doubt whether she
could equal little Wallio Eddinger as
"Fauntleroy." She is a sweet little girl
and her playing shows she has learned
her lesson well. But beyond that,
nothing. "The Prince and the Pauper"
is a sort of fairy play, oven though it
does use a few historical characters.
But as a "kid drama" it cannot be coin
nared with "Little Iml Fountleroy."
'there is no sentiment in this play.
Thero was a little in the story as .Mark
Twain wrote it and also an under cur
rent of delicate satire which was all lost
in the dramatization. Tho prince and
the paupor.you know,chango clothes, and
by a little flip of fortune's wheel each is
compelled for a time to assume the
position in life to which his clothes
entitle him, everything being assisted
by the marvellous facial resemblance of
tho two. But the language is stilted in
the endeavor to give a sixteenth-century
color to the production, and there is
nothing to pull at your heartstrings, as
in "Little J.ord Fountleroy." But as
Ijaid before, Elsie Leslie has been well
taught and is a clever child and proba
bly does as well in the part as anyone
could. Arthur Elliot does some very
fine work us a built soldier of fortune,
who befriends tho Prince in his need.
and shares the honors with the diminu
tive star. The scenery is good and the
costuming effective. The Baldwin was
crowded on the opening night and the
play will do well riglit along lor it nits
tho popular fancy.
Tho Grismcr-Davies Company is on
its third week at tho Bush Street. The
play at present on tho boards is a so-
called comedy-drama by Edwin E. Kid
der, author of "A Poor Relation," enti
tled, "Under a Yoke. It is really a full
blooded molodrnmn. n wouiu do a good
thing of its kind wore it not for the vil
lain, who arouses in one an inclination
to laugh moro than anything, and for
this the fault lies wholly with the
author, none with the actor. Phipbe
Davies plays a young Italian girl, under
the yoke of a rascally Italian inn-keeper,
the villain, and redeems the play by her
sweet and earnest acting of the part. Mr.
Grismer plays a good hearted, jolly, Amer
ican inventor and as always, does well.
One of the parts introduces a dubutante.
Miss Minnie Dcering, who gives good
promise by her work. Thero is ono in
genious scene, which furnishes tho why
and wherefore for tho American being
introduced as an inventor. A young
Englishman who has been injured by n
fall' is lying on a heavily cur
tained bed in an old Italian palace.
The American is sitting up with
him and to amuse himself opens his
grip and overhauls his inventions.
Among them is a clock which, after
being wound up, rings when lifted from
whatever it may bo resting on. The
alarm tho inventor explains, may bo
attached to the bottom of silverwnie to
prevent burglary. There's "millions in
it." He is obliged to leave the room
for n while and places the clock in a
chair by the bed, fastening it to the
curtainVord in order fo furnish tho in
valid with a call bell. He leaves the
room, and presto, enters the Italian vil
lain through a secret panel. It appears
tho bed is one of those ingenious con
trivances which were used in the Middle
Ages to reduce the population of rivnl
cities when tho census was to be taken,
and the crafty Italian sets tho machinery
in motion and retires through his hole
in the wall. The heavy top of the bed
descends to crush tho invalid when tho
curtain cord, drawing against the back
of tho chair, becomes taut, and lifts the
clock from its resting place. The bell
rings, the invalid wakes up and rolls out
of bed. Disappointed crusher. Curtain.
W. J. Scanlan is at the California,
playing "Miles Aroon." The play is
like a great many other Irish
plays, only several hundred per cent
better than most of them, and is
given by a company thoroughly capable
of giving an Irish piny. Scanlan him
self is unique. There is no one like him.
He is the most delightful Irish comedian
on the stage today. His wit bubbles
out so naturally you don't think of it as
cut nnd dried. "He has an excellent
voice and his songs are charming, com
posed, as you know, by himself. Ho
(ins a new "Swing Song," which bids
fair to become as popular as "1'eek-a-
Boo." It !b a treat to seo a comedian
who represents life in tho Emerald Isle
without a touch of vulgarity. The
average Irish comedian belittles his
birth place. Scanlan idealizes it.

Washington, August 17. The Chi

Corea, he says, is a poor country with

Centrnl closes tonight. Fifteen Pinker

anil five citizens nre so badly wounded
thero nre fears for their recovery.
Three 1'inkerton men were arrested
and one was so severely handled by the
mob that the police surgeon had to dress
his wounds. Nearly all the 1'inkerton
men were withdrawn today from duty
at the crossings within tho city limits,

throng of onlookers, nnd tho police took
About 1 o'clock James Patton, a
1'inkerton man, was patrolling the
tracks in tho vicinity of Van Wiert
itreet. He claims to have lwen struck
with a stone in the chest, while his com
panion was knocked down nnd severely
hurt by a gang of roughs. Then ho fired
his revolver into tho crowd, seriously
wounding Richard Dwyer, nged 15.
Patton hnd no time to fire another shot
ns the crowd surged around him nnd
before the police could interfere, his
clothes were torn off his back. He was
struck with fists and clubs and pre
sented a pitable spectacle when rescued
from tho angry crowd by the police
who were obliged to draw their re
volvers to stem the crowding mass of
This occurrence aroused the passion of
the sicctntors, mostly roughs nnd hood
lums. Their iiuiiiIht increased and tho
Chief of Police fearing further trouble,
established headquarters in the station
house near by.
About S o'clock a freight passed
through tho city and Pinkerton's men
say it was stoned. The jwlice claim
such was not the case. At any event
when the train reached the Broadway
viaduct the Pinkerton men begau a
reckless fusiludc on the crowd standing
in the vicinity. Four or live shots wero
fired without any provocation. Mrs.
Thomas Hogan standing on the stoop of
her residence was shot through the
leg and a small ly was shot in the
thigh. The crowd by this time was
wrought up to a fearful pitch of excite
ment and only by the efforts ot the local
police aided by'a committee from the
strikers wero they kept back.
Alter this incident Robert Pinkerton,
who had charge of his forces hero in
person, called on Chief Willard. He
said his men had been nssaulted
continually and fire arms had been put
in their possession only yesterday, that
they might bo used when necessary, in
self defense and in the work of protecting
the company's proerty. I le was sorry
that innocent parties hnd suffered and
added that it generally happened that
way, still he would stand by his men
agn'iust the wanton attacks of the roughs.
a Chief Willard expressed a belief
at if the Pinkerton men hnd
never been brought here the local
police would have been abundantly able
to cope with the situation. As it is, he
fears there will be further trouble if
these men stay here, and says in that
event tho local nuthoritics could not bo
held responsible, as ho had repeatedly
informed Superintendent Bissell that
tho company's property would be well
guarded by his own men if no other
forces were brought here to inflame the
passions of the sympathizers of the
At 4 o'clock, another freight train

The Pinkerton man who fired into the
crowd at Van Woert street crossing

beat the officer. All tho police are

A reporter called on Vice President
Webb today and asked him if ho had
any itlei as to what the result of
his interview with Powderly tomorrow
"Yes, I think I have," answered
Webb, with u smile of much meaning.
"1 think that Powderly will call here
tomorrow, submit his demands, which
will bo refused, and then I think ho will
call the strike off and decide to sacrifice
the members of his order on this branch
rather than involve the whole order
in a fight on the entire system, which in
the end would he sure to ue disastrous."
Powderly and other ineinl)crs of the
Executive Board of the Knights of Labor
kept themselves secluded today. This
is understood to mean that they were
conferring on important matters, but
nothing will be done until Powderly
meets the Vice-President.

Large Quantity or It llelng Circulated at
Fkksxo, Cal., August 17. Thomas
Wells, attorney at law, nnd Fred
Walker, Constable, were arrested at
Delano, this morning, on a. charge of
passing spurious money. Both are
residents of Delano. They visited
Fresno yesterday and while hero passed
about f 140 -in Canadian bank notes.
The notes were of tho denomination of
$20 each on the Bank of Prince
Edwards Island, Charlottetowu, and
were made in 1872. One of the lending
banks discounted one of tho notes while
the other banks rejected them, claiming
mat the Dank on winch they were drawn
was long since defunct." Constable
Walker claims to have come into the
possession of the notes nt Buffalo, N. Y..
during the recent visit to that city, and
says he believed them to bo worth full
value. He relieves Mr. Wells of any
connection with himself in circulating
the notes. Walker purchased a
watch, giving in nayinent $80 of
the notes. He passed two of tho notes
at saloons and sold one to the Fresno

WHAT CONOKESS WILL DO THIS
Mr. Quay's Resolution to I.lmlt Debate
to lie, Pushed In the Sennto Ncarlng
Washington, August 17. The pro
gram of business for tho rest of the ses

this week if the present understanding
is carried out. Mr. Quay will introduce
his amended resolution tomorrow,
which, under the rules, it is expected
will go over until Tuesday for action.
It will not bo referred to the Committee
on Rules, but will be disposed of in the
Senate when it comes up for considera
tion. The motion will bo made to include
the Federal Election bill in the list of
measures that shall be considered after
the Tariff bill is disposed of. This is
expected to precipitate a debate of
some length and considerable bitterness
between the two wings of the Republi
can majority. Mr. Quay, and Mr.
Aldrich, who is acting with him, believe
the resolution will be passed by a good
majority, with no amendment.
It is probable tomorrow wil be "sus
pension day" in tho House, and the
committee will be allowed to call up
selected measures for action. Under
this order the Committee on Education,
if it be reached in the call, will seek to
paBS the Senate bill to extend addi

Bkkmn, August 17. The German
iron-clad, Irene, and the Imperial yacht,
Hohenzollcrn, were sighted off Mcmel
this morning. They stopped for Em
peror William's dispatches and then
proceeded northward for Ravat, where
they are timed to arrive early tomorrow.
The Russian squndron, consisting of
eighteen vessels under command of
Grand Uukc Alexis, will fire a
salute upon the arrival of the German
vessels. Grand Duke Vladimir will
receive the Emperor uj)on landing and a
regiment of St. Petersburg grennadiers of
which the Kaiser is honorary colonel
will form the guard of honor.
The Emperor's stay at Ravat will be
very brief. The Czar desired that the
Emperor should go straight to St.
Petersburg instead of landing at a place
where German sentiment continued so
strong. The Kaiser was not left
m ignorance of the Czar's
wishes but having expressed his
determination to see Ravat, in which
town he was interested, ho declined to
niter the route. While the initial cir
cumstances of the Emperor's entrance
into Russia will militiato against mon
nrchisin his meeting with the Cznr will
be in a genuine spirit of cordiality.
At noon the Emperor will start for
Narva. That city is already decorated
with flags and garlands. Tho Russian
police will guard the approaches
to the villa, where the meeting
between the Czar and Emperor
takes place and they will be assisted by
fifty German jwlice.
Public traffic on the railway connect
ing Narva with St. Petersburg has been
suspended and the line will le used sole
ly for official business during the
coming week. The Imperial con
ferences, at which Chancellors Von
Caprivi and Degiers will be pre
sent, are expected to last over
three days. If the Emperor fails to
persuade the Czar towards a permanent
jwiicyof peace the conditions will be
arranged through a revision of the Ber
lin treaty by another European con
gress. Official opinion is decided that
very rapid developments tending
townrd a European conflict are certain
Herr Vitter, a free conservative mem
ber of the lower house of the Prussian
diet.in a speech yesterday said that from
his personal observation in the
State council he had the highest
appreciation of the personality of
the Emperor and no German dnvoted
himself so exclusively with every fibre
of his being and all the warmth of his
heart to further the national weliare.
The conciliatory power of the Emperor

law. The Emperor crasped what was
justifiable in tho workmen's demands
and protected and upheld them.
This the workinginen themselves
recognized and became willing to
cooperate with the Government to give
Germany permanent internal peace.
The speech will draw the attention of
the whole country.

Itugglan Newspaper Want lllm to
Operate In Auhtrla.
St. Fktkksiiuko, August 17. Through
the breaking of a scaffolding in a six
story building on Newski Prospekt eight
workmen were killed and eight injured.
The newspapers here extend a friendly
welcome to Emperor dhnm. They
admit the sincerity of his pacific declara
tions and declare that Russia is disposed
to cooperate with him.
At the same time they hold that
Emperor William ought to operate in
Vienna rather than in St. Petersburg,
seeing that Russia will only accept a
solution of the Bulgarian q'uestion in
conformity with the Berlin treaty, which
has been violated by Austrian com
plicity. The Czar arid Czarina have
arrived at Narva.

The Star contained a special dispatch
from Pha-nix !ast week saying that Edi
