which pnrprrta to give fall history
ol the rotery f f the Adarxs Express
car on the S.in Fianusco road ou the
igbt of Octoher 25' h, when between
$80,000 and JlOO Ol 0 in currency waa
taken. The li-tt-r wai received by the
tditor of the Glebe Democrat last Tues
day. It im loeed two express moni.y
envelope?, from one of which $30,000
had been attracted, and from the
other $12,000; aUo, the memorandnm
f the cashier of tbe Continental Bunk
notifying tbe American National Bank,
of Kansas City, that $30,000 waa in
closed. 1 he enval'p a and memoran
dum have been fully identified aa
thoB9 taken in the robbery. The
writer of the letter gives as hia reaaan
for writirg it that he wants to clear
Fotheringiiam, the express mee senger,
from the suspicion which now at
taches ti him. Tbe letter trives fall
details of the robbt ry and aeeerts that
Kothnringbam was taken completely
by eorprire, and bad no pavticipation
in it except ea tbe unwilling victim.
The wri er tells of a previous
attempt to rob the car at Cuba
Junction, ncd de'ails the manner
in which he and an accomplice se
cured letter beads, cards, etc , and se
cured B'goMurfs of tbe express
officials to enable tbem to forge the
order permit. ing tbe robber to
ride in tha car with the messen
ger. Tbe le ter stated that the
robbers had a beat, which, together
with a camping on i fir, two guns and a
box of provision?, tier bad secreted
near the bridge at St. Charles, Ma,
aid alsia package containing a revol
ver, whkh bed been left at tbe check
stand at tbe Union Depot in this city
on the dty of the robbery. Tbe letter
is written in a round backhand, evi
dently riieenised, is fairly constructed '
and well spelled, errors where they oc
cur evidently 'being intentional, as in
the case of .tbe mieanotation, "HolI
(ait qui halv pense, with which it
concludes, and the messenger's rame,
which appears m every instance as
"Farlhiniriiam." Following the di
rections viven in the letter, tbe skiff,
guns hi i provisions were readi y
lonmi by tre detectives, as wai
the package containing the revolver at
tbe Union Di pot id check stand. Other

statement tam tbe robber bad re
marked when be took from the mes
senger's pr.cket the forged letter by
which Le tiad gained access t3 the ex
press car, that be would write a letter
to tbe u obe-Democrat vindicating tbe
messenger. Tbe le. ter is In the same
handwriting aa that recentlv sent with
tome of the stolen unHgsed money to
Frank James. Notwithstanding all
this, the detectives rr gard tbe letter as
a clear "blind," and do not in tbe
least abate their vigilant guard of
Messerger fothetmgbam. lndeed,it
is stated on pretty good authority,
that the grand jury in seseion in this
city yestrrday found indictments
against Fotheringham, "Jim Cam
mings" and two others, whosa names
are not given, for complicity in the
robbery. The detective think tbat tbe
robbers, when preparing for the afla;r,
took into consideration the extraordi
nary pressure which would be brought
to bear on tbe express messen
ger, and that they laid their plans ac
cordingly. That the guns, boat and
provisions were left where found be
fore the robbery there is no doubt, for
