On last Thursday forenoon, a
gang of eight mounted men made
their appearance in Northfield, and
while four of them went into the
bank to rob it, the others kept up a
fusilade on the streets, to intimidate
the citizens from interfering with the
bank. TheTobbers endeavored to
force the cashier, Mr. J. L. Hey
wood, to open the safe but he would
not do it, although they struck him
with a pistol and swore that they
would kill him if he did not comply.
The delay caused by Mr. Hay
wood's bravery gave time for the
citizens to recover from the first
shock of surprise and alarm, and
the accomplices outside warned the
robbers in the bank to hurry out.
Before leaving the bank, one of
the robbers shot Mr. Heywood
through the head, killing him instant
ly. Thk act was a cold-blooded
and cowardly murder, for Mr. Hey
wood was utterly helpless at the
time from the injuries he had prev
iously received. Mr. Bunker one of
the tellers was, also, shot in the
shoulder, as he was about running
from the ,bank. He is not badly
hurt. Nicholas Gustatfson, whom
they shot on the street, has since
Several citizens had, by this time,
armed themselves and were firing
upon the robbers. Two of them
were hit, one dying on the spot and
the other soon afterwards. These
were since identified by Mr. L. M.
Hazen, a Cincinnati detective, as
Charley Pitts and Bill Chadwell.
The latter was killed by a shot fired
by a young man named Wheeler
from a second story window, of a
building opposite the bank. An
other of the party was wounded,
but got away. One of the horses
was also killed.
Finding the citizens thoroughly
aroused, the robbers took the road
towards Morristown, and shortly
after a company of citizens well
mounted started in pursuit. From
that time the pursuit has been con
tinued, other companies from vari
ous quarters joining in. It was sup
posed that the robbers were con
cealed in the Big Woods, and it was
believed on Sunday that they could
Maj. Strait went to the scene of
operations on Friday, and endeav
ored to procure an organization of
the pursuers, so as to surround the
woods and close in upon them, but
at last advices this plan had not
been successfully carried into effect,
and it was doubtful whether they
had not already left the woods. Or,
again it is not improbable that they
have confederates in that vicinity,
who are either aiding them in keep
ing concealed, or have helped them
to get away in disguises.
.Those who profess to know, de
clare them to be the James and
Younger gang of Kansas, and say
that Jesse and Frank James and two
of the Younges are with this com
pany. Some of this same gang
were in this city not long ago and
purchased horses and equipments
here. They, also, visited the banks.
One of them answers to the descrip
tion of Jesse James, but they were
not suspected at that time. The
people of Northfield deserve great
credit for the vigorous efforts they
put forth to capture the corpses of
these scoundrels. There are re
wards of about $3,000 per head of
fered for the robbers and they will,
no doubt, be vigilantly followed, let
them go where they may. The
State offers $1,000 and the North
field bank $500 each for them.
Since the above was written re
ports have been received that the
horses a»d saddles of the robbers
were found in the woods near Ely
sian. They were delivered to the
authorities of Rice county- It is,
also, reported that the robbers were
seen at Indian lake, three miles from
Mankato, on Tuesday, by Sheriff
Davis, of Faribault county but the
truth is feat their whereabouts is un
known, and while it is to be hoped
that they may be caught iby the
parties stiri in pursuit it is doubtful
if they will be.
—The democratic press essayed
a very "thin" excuse for the charge
brought against Mr. Tilden for his
alleged false swearing as to his in
come in 1862. The explanation
that his income, over and *bove
what he returned, was in payment
of what he had earned in former
years, did rxst relieve him if it had
been true, *rA its truth is positively
denied. The next move was to
bring a charge against Mr. Hayes,
of having made a false return of his
property for taxation in 1763. The
latter immediately denied this, giv
ing all the circumstances in detail
and showing that the accusation is
utterly groundless. Now, why does
not Mr. Tilden, if innocent, do like
wise? If the charge is not true, in
half an hour's time he can give a
statement which will make its falsity
apparent and his refusal to do this
inclines even his friends to believe
that he is guilty of what is charged.
—Gov. Pillsbury has issued a
proclamation on the subject .of
grasshoppers, in which he urges the
people to take measures for the de
struction of these pests, and with
that end in view, advises them to
consult together and act in concert.
He alludes to various methods of
destroying the hoppers, and con
