Express Car of the Union Pacific
Flyer Destroyed by Dy
CMAHA, Neb., June 8.—Union Pacific
train No. 1 was held up at Wilcox,
Wyo., a few minutes after 2 o'clock a.
m. The express car was completely
wrecked by dynamite. The safe was
blown open and the contents were
taken. Engineer Jones was injured by
flying debris. The Union Pacific offi
cials furnish the following account of
Just before daylight, in the midst of a
drenching rain, the train was held up
just beyond Wilcox, Wyo. The rob
bers blew up the express car with dyna
mite, wounding the engineer, and then
escaped to the mountains.
According to the officials of the ex
press company the robbers obtained
only a nominal reward for their daring
crime. A'posse under command of the
sheriff of Carbon county is in pursuit
and officers are confident of capturing
them. Union Pacific officials received
the first information of the afjair from
Engineer Jones of the train which was
held up. His message was as follows:
"First section No. 1 held up a mile
west of Wilcox. Express car blown
^©pen mail car damaged. Safe blown
©fien contents gone. We were ordered
to pull over bridge just west of Wilcox
and after we passed the bridge the ex
plosion occurred. Can't tell how bad
bridge was damaged. No one hurt ex
cept Jones, scalp wound and cut on
h$nd. JONES, Engineer."
It required two hours to clear away
the wreckage so the train could proceed
to Medicine Bow, the next station, from
which the report was sent. The sheriff
•was notified at once and with a posse
started in pursuit of the robbers. The
soft ground caused by the rain will aid
tracking the robbers. It is not posi
tively known just how many there are
of them, but as only four were seen by
the train men it is believed that that
number constituted the party. The
passengers were scared nearly out of
their wits, but the robbers made no ef
fort to molest them, confining their op
erations to the express car. The local
officials have received no information
beyond the fact that the train was held
up and the contents of the safe taken.
They say the safe contained very little
of value. Nothing is said in any of the
dispatches regarding the express mes
aenger, or where he was when the ex
plosion occurred, but it is believed he

Clark, the 2-year-old child kidnapped
from her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur
Clark of New York city, on May 21,
was discovered two miles south of
Sloatsburg, a village about eight miles
from here. She was found at the farm
house of Charles Youmans and was in
the custody of Mrs. Jennie Wilson, who
took the baby to that place during the
early part of last week. The woman

discuss the abduction.
Arthur Clark, the father, arrived here
at 6:30 o'clock, accompanied by an offi
cer, and identified the child as his lost
Marion. Mr. Clark returned with his
little girl to New York. The arrest of
the man giving the name of James Wil
son and claiming to be the husband of
the woman took place soon after Mr.
Clark had departed.
NEW YORK, June 3.—Arthur Clark,
the father of the abducted child, accom
panied by Chief of Police Devery and
Captain McClusky, arrived in this city
about 10:30 o'clock, bringing back the
child which had been missing for 12
days. Hundreds of people were gath
ered before the Clark house and the
party with the baby had to struggle
through the frantic crowd.

COLUMBUS, O.. Jun& 3.—The Repub

Hi si Kridc When They Were
The captain had not been lotrg- mar
ried when he is ordered into camp.
The long-expected call had corneal last.
To be sure, the camp was in plain sifrht
of the captain's residence, which was
some mitigation of the hardship, but
then it was still a separation, and to
lighten their terrible condition it was
arranged that the bereaved husband
and wife should signal to each other
often with handkerchiefs, says the Cin
It was on the second day that "the
young wife was seated on the porch
"Tell me, Jane," she said, "is Arthur
"Yes, ma'am," answered the maid.
"Then keep waving your handker
chief. I want to finish this novel!"
At the same moment, in camp, an offi
cer from an adjoining company stepped
up to the captain.
"I say, old man," he asked, "why do
you keep that man out there all day
waving a handkerchief?"
"Oh, it's merely a bit of signal code
practice for him," he answered. "Say,
I've got somegood stuff inside."
I A'J -f (. ,l
Secretary Alger was with the presi
dent for some time discussing the situa
tion. When he left the White House
he denied that General Otis had cabled
that 30,000 troops would be necessary.
General Otis, said he, had been notified
from time to time that all the troops
he considered necessary would be sup
plied to hiin, and not a word of com
plaint has come from him. I have just
cabled to Otis giving him definite infor
mation as to the number of regulars he
would have after the volunteers are
withdrawn. Including the Nineteenth
infantry, which was delayed at Ponce
by the stranding of the transport Meade,
he will have '-'a,000 regulars. I asked
him if more than that number
would be required. We desire
this information because if volun
teers must be mustered in it will
require all the time between now and
the end of the rainy season to muster
them in, equip them, and transport
them to the scene of action. We could,
if necessary, furnish General Otis with
about 5.000 or 6,000 additional regulars
without calling for volunteers, but tha
sending of the additional regulars would
reduce the troops at the military posts
in this country to a minimum and
cramp us somewhat in Cuba arid Porto
Rico. We have absolutely no reason to
believe that General Otis will request
more troops than we can furnish with
out enlisting volunteers.

special train for Santiago de las Vegas,
but owing to various delays the pay

Many of the applicants, of whom there
were a large number, were without
guns. It was observed that a large pro
portion were from Marianao, from
which point they were prevented from
coming to Havana. Not a single officer
was present to identify the applicants,
a fact that caused considerable annoy

President McKinley Says Otis
Understands He Can Have as
WASHINGTON, June 1.—The president
stated to a congressional caller that
there was not at present any contempla
tion of largely increasing General Otis'
forces in the Philippines. He said that
nothing han been received from General
Otis which indicated the necessity for
more troops beyond the regulars who
are to be sent to relieve the retiring vol
unteers. But the president added that
if additional reinforcements become
necessary they would be promptly fur
nished. A number of governors of states
had advised him that they could fur
nish regiments in short order if the oc
casion required. But at the same time
the president expressed his strong be
lief and confidence that the necessity
for mustering in additional volunteers
ir- accordance with the authority
granted by the army reorganization bill
would not be wise.
