ANOTHER BIG HOLD UP
An Express Train Kobbed
of Nearly $2,000,000.
THIS TIME ON AN EASTERN ROAD
Attempt to Kill a San Fiucino Uaw
yer--A French Teasel Bnnk Dur
Ing a Fog.
Washington, Oct. 13. Seven men
' composed the gang that held up the
north-bound express train on the Rich
mond, Fredericksburg & Potomac rail
road at Quinatoc last night. Their de
mand for the waybill when the express
messenger declared one safe was empty,
. and the caution they gave the fireman
about disconnecting the air-brake tnbes
when he uncoupled the engine on their
demand, showed some members of the
' gang were railroad hands. Besides,
after the engine was uncoupled, it was
boarded by the robbers and run by them
to a point near Widewater station, a
short distance from the scene of the
hold-up, where they abandoned it and
sent it ahead running wild. Express
Messenger Crutchfield thinks the booty
secured was $150,000 or more'. He gave
this account of the robbery ; "But one
robber entered the car. He was heavy
built and dressed like a farmer, although
he seemed to thoroughly understand the
express business. He had a red hand
kerchief over the lower part of his face.
When the train was stopped I opened
the door of my car. The robber fired at
me. I fired back and closed the door.
He called, 'Open the door.' I did not
do it. 'Open that door or I'll blow the
whole car to pieces with dynamite, he
yelled. ' Then he threw a stick of dyna
mite at the door and shattered it and
the casing. The force . knocked me off
my feet. I then opened the door. One
of the robbers came in and made me
open the safe. He took everything.
There was one package which he must
have thought contained only papers,
for he threw it into a box. It contained
$6,000. Then he said, 'Open that other
safe.' 'That is simply a dead-bead safe,'
I said j' 'The hell it is,' he roared ; 'show
me your waybills for it.' I started to
get the bill and he said, Your hands
up ; show , me the paper ; I'll get it.'
He looked at the bill and was satisfied
the second , safe contained nothing,
which was true. The man was very
cool all the time. He had seven or eight
through express pouches, each contain
ing packages of money; bow much I
cannot guess. The man cut a small slit
in each pouch and took every package."
New Yokk, Oct. 13. The train held
up last night on the Richmond, Freder
icksburg & Potomac railroad reached
Pennsylvania depot', Jersey City, at 8 :05
this morning, with a badly shattered
express 'car. Adams Express Com
pany's messengers reported all the safes
had been rifled. -It is supposed the ban
dits obtained between $150,000 and $200,
000.. The heavy oak . doors of the car
. had been splintered by dynamite, and
in addition the marks of revolver bullets
were visible. Every pane of glass in
the windowB of the car had been shat-
. tered by dynamite, and fragments of
glass were still scattered over he floor
of the car. Officials of. the Adams Ex-
" press Company, in charge of the car at
the depot, claimed only the pouches and
safes had been ransacked.

Work of Drunken Fiends.
WrLKESBABBE, Pa., Oct. 13. As a re
i suit of a drunken riot at Maltoy, a small
Hungarian settlement near this city, one
person was instantly killed, two fatally
wounded, and two others seriously in
jured. Killed and injured : George Si-

shot in both legs, will recover. Mitchell
Poloski became intoxicated - and John
Moore ordered him from, his saloon. He
went home and procured a shotgun. . On
bis way back to the saloon . be encoun
tered Dan Ryan sitting on a porch with
Lizzie Fosky and Maggie Moore. ' Rya'n
advised Poloski to go hornet Poloski
fired, and the two girls fell to the porch,
the blood spurting from their wounds.
John Moore, attracted by the shooting,
picked up his sister, while Ryan took
the Fosky girl. Before they could gel
inside the door, the drunken fiend
em p1 tied the second barrel into the girls,
Moore receiving part of the load in the
knee. Poloski was joined by two coun
trymen, also armed. John Jenkins at
tempted to arrest Poloski and was shot.
The Slavs then escaped ' to their board
ing house, barricaded the door, thrust
their heads through the .windows and
threatened to kill the first person at
tempting to enter. People living on the
opposite side of Hhe street had their
heads out of the windows. One of the
Slavs, seeing the head of George Sivoski,
took deliberate aim and fired, tearing
half the boy's head and face away. The
horror-stricken - neighbors closed the
windows and barricaded the doors. The
murderers then turned the guns on
lighted windows, posts and trees. After
all became quiet, several armed men
went to the house to arrest the murder
ers. The door of the house was open
and the men were gone. Two men were
arrested at Kingston this morning on
suspicion. ' The two guns carried by
the murderers were found in a pond.
Tried to Murder a lawyer.
San Fbancisco, Oct. 13. An old man
known, as Captain Emerson attempted
to murder H. H. Lowenthal, a wU
known attorney of this city, about 10
o'clock this morning. Emerson met
Lowenthal on the stairway of a building
on California street, and handed him- a
letter to read. While engaged in its
perusal Emerson pressed a pistol against
the attorney's stomach and was about to
pull the trigger when Lowenthal knocked
the would-be murderer's hand down, the
bullet passing through his (Lowenthal's)
legs. A fight then followed for posses
sion of the weapon, in which Lowenthal
waa slightly bruised. By this time a'
crowd was attracted to the 6cene and
Emerson was taken into custody. He
refuses as yet to state any reason for his
attempted assassination of the lawyer.
The would-be assassin's name is John
T. Emerson, and he has a bad record,
having been mixed up in several bribery
cases. The Bhooting today, it has been
ascertained, was the outcome of the cel
ebrated "Little Pete" bribery case which
was before the courts in 1887. In this
case he was caught in an effort to bribe
a juror, was convicted, and sent to San
Quentin for five years. Emerson' de
clares ' that Lowenthal advised him to
plead guilty, promising him $1000 to do
so, but the attorney subsequently aban

San Fbancisco, Oct. 13. Dr. E. M.
Griffith, who branded the letter M on a
2-weeke-old child, appeared in Police
Judge Conlan's . court this morning,
charged with cruelty. The case was
continued until next Tuesday, when he
will be arraigned. If Griffith be not In
sane, he is very nearly so and acts like a
maniac This is the result of the long
and excessive use of morphine and
cocaine. The Society for Prevention of
Cruelty to Children decided today to
have Dr. Griffith arrested for mayhem,
should the present charge against him
not result in conviction. .

A UNIQUE FACTORY.,
Wbera Medicine and Food Is Huisfac-
- " tared or Uofcs.
One of the two factories of this conn-
try. for the making of patent food and
patent medicine for dogs has been' de
scribed in the Isew York News. The
founder of this novel establishment was
a Scotchman, lie was employed in
London kennels, studied the needs of
dogs, thought out special treatment for
them, and finally took out patents on
food and medicines, and in his unique
business amassed a fortune.
On the second floor the visitor enters
the receiving room of the raw mate
rials. Thousands of pounds of butchers'
scraps are brought here in the course
of a month. Oatmeal in wholesale
quantities and tons of herbs are used.
The old-fashioned dog's bane,,boneset,
catnip and beet root, under various
scientific names, find a use as food or as
The second floor is occupied by four
curious machines with 'great cylinder
attachments. After the fat and the
meat have been sorted, they are ground
separately in. these machines, and then
placed in great wooden tubs where
various mixtures are added.
The next'process seems so much like
the ordinary baker's work that one is
quite disposed to taste things, and when
the round and square cakes of a tempt
ing brown have been . taken from
the 'brick ovens, one really : envies the
aristocratic dog. After cooling, the
biscuits are packed in neat pasteboard
boxes. . -
According to size these boxes are la
belled for pet dogs, for greyhounds
and for St. Bernards. There are spec
ially prepared dishes ' for cats. Suffi
cient food to keep pussy for two days
may be had for five cents. Bi; it costs
a pretty penny to Keep a aog. A large
dog must have six or eight cakes beside
a quantity of meat. - The meat costs
probably about ten cents and the cakes
are four cetits apiece.
The most interesting department is
that of the patent medicines at the top
of the building. The mixture of herbs
and chemicals are boiled in great ket
tles, and the liquid is brought up to?
this floor to be put in bottles of various
sizes and labelled "cure for mange,
"liniment for sprains," and 'to prevent
baldness." Sure' cures for seventeen
diseases, and pills as well as liquid med
icines are maae.
This , curious v' establishment also
makes dog. collars, dog soaps, crates
for carrying or shipping dogs, dog
brushes and combs, blankets and mack
in tosh waterproofs with hoods, for
greyhounds.' ' "
