A Mysterious Stranger Eurontc.
Sini:GFiELP,Ill.,0ct 27. A gentlemen
who arrived in this city yesterday stated to
a reporter last night that as he was board
ing the Alton train yesterday morning and
just as the train "ft as starting out, a stranger
entered the smoking car carrying on his
arm a heavy overcoat mid in one hand a
satchel. He walked through the car look
ing for a seat, and finding none, seated
himself in the unoccupied half of one, the
other half of which was occupied by a
cntlcmanwho gave the reporter these facts
The man seemed to be very nervous and
excited, looked restlessly about, was unable
to remain quietly in his seat.
Finally he drew a St. Louis morning
paper from his pocket, searched hastilyfor
the item which he evidently expected to
find. Suddenly he stopped at the account
of the Adams express robbery and read it
intently. He read no further, put up the
paper and opened his satchel to get a cigar.
A3 he did so, the gentleman plainly saw a
tangled bunch of bank notes stuffed in one
corner of the bag, and some neatly lied
packages of the same carefully stowed
away under a lot of clothing. "He then
drew a traveling guide from his pocket
and turned to the map of Upper Canada,
which he studied intently. The suspicions
of his companion were not aroused till he
took a more careful survey of
the man's features when he noticed
that his eye brows, eye lashes and
complexion were very dark while his hair
was very light, excepting one lock on the
right side of his head which wa3 black.
Closer scrutiny convinced him that the man
was wearing a wig, and then it occurred to
him that the man might possibly be the ex
press robber himself. At every station he
went to the toilet room with " his satchel
until the train resumed its journey. lie
remarked that the train was making very
slow time, aud displayed great impatience
to reach his destination.
The gentleman who related these facts
is confident that on his trip to Springfield
he occupied a scat with Jim Cummings,
the Adams express robber.

St. Louis, Mo., Oct. 7. No new de
velopments in the Adams Express robbery
at this writing. Jlr. Damcel was seen at
his office this morning. He said that he
gave tiie Associated Press all of the facts
m the case so far as they had come to his
knowledge yesterday, and absolutely noth
ing new has turned up since. In regard to
the report that Messenger Fortheringham
had made a coufession, he stated that theie
Avas no truth in it; that they a-, ere working
on the original theory that "the messenger's
story was true. That the latter has not
been arretted or placed under surveillance,
but of Iiis own accord was in constant com
munication with officers of the company
aud detectives who have tho case in lian,
and is aiding them us much as possible m
their attempt to discover the whereabout;
and identity of tiie robber.

man who traveled from St. Louis with an
individual, '. ho answered the robbcr'a de

number of bank notes tied up in pacfcigr,
were shown Mr. Dam-cl; hesaidtliat if the
story Aas true it ivas a very important dis
co, ay. hut there were so many stories
ailoat of like nature that it was difficult to
select tbe probable from the improbable
ones. They would investigate the occur
rence but doubted if it would lend to the
discovery of the robber. Detectives have
several other clews and arc hard at work
upon the case.
Fothcringham was seen at the company's
ofiicc this morning by a reporter, to vhom
he told the story of the robbery. He made
statements in a frank, straightforward
manner, i ithout the slightest hint of cm
barrasmcnt or confusion. He said that he
was avcH aware that circumstantial evi
dence pointed strongly to bi3 being nccc?-SO-ry
to the robbery, but that he had nothing
to conccai. He" was confident that the re
sult of the investigation would clear him of
all suspicion. The only point in the me?
senger's statement which was not given out
yesterday is that the robber told Fothcring
ham that he had an accomplice on the
train who if he (the rob'er) was unable to
carry out the plans unaided, would come
to his assistance.
C. "W. Wirt, superintendent of the Cic
cinnati division of the Adams express corn
pany, arrived in this city from Cincinnati
this morning and iias been in conference
with Superintendent Damsel concerning
the robbery. It is thought they will offer
a large reward for the capture of the rob
ber. Folheringham in rdsu'ng in detail his ex
perience with therobbcr, today raid. After
binding me, Oummiug-, as he called him
self, took the key to she safe from my
pocket, unlocked the safe and took the
pouches out. He then took hh grip ssck
and opening tried to force the pouches in
without opening them, but could not do so.
He then took his knife from his pocket,
cut the pouches open and rera-.ea mar
contents. He removed se&nc articles of
dothing from hhs lag - ihTS '-c-3 oat

We were then somewhere near 3Ierinae.

so that I could make no out-cry, in the

out if I attempted to attract anyoao's at

was made for the clothes which he said
the robber had thrown from the car, and

One of the garments measured
about thirty-three inches around the waist, !
bearing out Fortheringham's statement as
to the size of the wearer, who is supposed,
of course, to be the robber. A No. 10 col
lar was also found. Forthcringharns
statements thus far have been remaikably
clear and straightforward and Ireefrorn
contradictions. The opinion is gaining
strength that the robbery was abouafide
affair and the messenger was in no way ac
cessory to it.
There are really no new developments in
the case tonight. Mr. L. G. Weir, the west
ern manager of the Express Co , says; Our
first purpose and object is to catch the
robber and all the resources of ihe com
pany will be used in that direction. The
recovery of the stolen money is a second
consideration with us. We have reim
bursed tho banks today to -the amount of
$40,000 and shall linish paying the last
money tomorrow. Mr. Fotherhigham has
not been arrested yet and we make no ac
cusations against him, nor "will this be
done until wo aio well assured that we
shall be justified in doing so. The messen
