DETECTIVES ALL AT SEA.
No Clue to the Sacramento
Two Suspicions Men Seen in
Officers in Pursuit Unable to Run
No Truth In tha Alloj.rt Arr.lt of Col
onel liiman— Train Wreaking Evi
dently Cont.rnnl.ted by
By the Associated Presa
Sacramknto, Oct. 14.— The detectives
ore apparently as much at Bea as other
people concerning the identity of the
men who robbed the overland express
train between Davisville aud thia city on
Thursday night laat.
1I they do know more about the affair
than other people they are very wisely
keeping such information to themselves
and awaiting developments.
However, no arresta have been made
in this vicinity as yet, which is a pretty
good indication that the officers have re
ceived no satisfactory clue.
Nothing further has been heard o! tbe
two men seen south of Washington on
Friday morning carrying valiaes and
making toward the river. It ia not un
likely that tbey were buntera returning
from a daylight visit to the tnle ponds
west of Washington. No one could have
gone down along tbe river without hav
ing been aeen, and if the men referred
to were tbe robbers they would not have
come up in tbis direction, aa tbey would
have to pass many farm houses.
Detective Kindelon, of San Francieco,
who was at Davisville at the time of tbe
robbery and waa soon afterward on the
scene, claims to have diacovered evi
dences tbat tbe robbera bad intended io
wreck the train, bnt cbanged their
minds alter encountering and capturing
the track walker. He found a clawbar
near tbe scene of the robbery, aud
thinks it waa to have been used in loos
ening a rail. On Saturday one of tbe
ofricere found a shovel in the tules near
Washington, which may have been used
to bury the stolen money.
The report circulated on Saturday that
Inman, alias Carpenter, the whilom
colonel of tha Industrial army, who wae
released from jail here a week ago, had

out foundation. He was in that town at
the time the train waa held up.
There was great excitement in Yolo
today growing out of the suspicious ao
tionßof two strangers wbo appeared in
Woodland and then left that town in
great haete. Mr. EUib of the Woodland
Mail telephoned to the Record-Union
that just before 8 a. m. two well-dressed
men, wbo were etrangera, entered tbe
bar-room of the Byrnes hotel through
the side entrance. One was short and
the other very tall. They carried a
large black gripsack, which they placed
on the counter before them. Doth were
freshly shaven. They at once called for
and had drinks. One of the men had a
I cut, or come other similar injury, on ono
\of hie bands, and asked tbe barkeeper
if be could supply bim with a cloth to
bind it up. Toe latter replied that be
could, and turned into a small room near
tbe bar to get the cloth. Tbere ia but a
thin partition and the barkeeper was
only a few feet away while in tho room.
While ho was getting tbe cloth he heard
one of the men aay to bis companion :
"We had better get out of hete pretty
quick, or we'il get nailed."
When the barkeeper returned be
brought a cloth and arnica, and tbe
wounded man hastily tied up hia hand.
Tbe two men then asked for a bottle of
whisky, paid for it and left.
The barkeeper, having hia suspicion
aroused, wont to the door and watched
them. He saw them go from tbe hotel
in a southerly direction. When a little
way olf they turned ond aaw the bar
keeper watching tbem, whereupon they
broke into a run. Tbe barkeeper had
in the meatime telephoned to the oth -
Tho two stranzers went over an open
space between tbe Baptist and tbe
Christian churches, and, crossing tbe
railroad track, got into a single buggy
and drove rapidly away in tho direction
ol Merritt'e station. In the meantime
cfhcerß were aiter tbem.
Shortly altorward, Len Merritt, of
Merritt station, four or five miles die
taut, while coming to Woodland met
two men in a buggy. One was ta: 1
tbe other ohort. They were driving tdsl
and aa tho; turned oil'the grade nearly
tipped over in their haßte. Presently
Merritt met Deputy Sheriff Wyckotf,
brotberof tbe sheriff, driving after the
men. lie told tho deputy what be had
seen and he pushed on as rapidly as
In the meantime Constable Rhodes
and District Attorney Head drove out in
a southwesterly direction and Marshal
Irwin went toward Cacheville, four
m.lea north. Sheriff Wyckoff, accom
panicd by tbe barkeeper of Byrne's
hotel, went another direction nnd were
n*xt heard of at Davieville, which local
ity thty w ere searching close.
Marshal Irwin returned in the after
noon to Woodland. He thinks the
men were guilty ot some crime other
than the train robbery, which accounts
for their etrange actions, and that they
bad no band in tbs hold-up. Othera
expressed tbe opinion that the whole
thing wae a practical joke gotten up to
fpDl the officers, while othera (irmly be
lieve the two atraugera to be the men
who held up the train, and that tbey
hove buried the $511,000 somewhere in
THE QUANTICO ROBBERY.
Not • Shadow of v Tangible Olao to th«
WABHiaoroN,Occ. 14 —Not the shadow
of a tangible clue to the identity of the
nion who accomplished tbe notable feat
of train brigandage in Virginia, Friday
night, has yet come to light. The little
town of Quantico, which consists of half
a dozen bouees, usually almoat isolated
from civilization, ia overrun with deteo
tlves. There are almost as many theo
ries afloat aa there are detectives, but
the only points on which the theories
are practically harmonious, are that tbe
robbery waa a carefully planned one,
executed by experienced professionals
and that the men are now probably far
distant from their field of operations.
The man arrested on suspicion last
night will merely be arraigned in the
police court on a charge of vagrancy, as
no evidence has appeared againat him.
MISS LEPKK'S AUVrtNTTJKE.
A Criminal Arnault, on a Devote* of Di
New York, Oot. 14.—Mies Mary Leper,
who ie credited as being the first woman

young Frenchman, eon of a wealthy
family, is in the Bergen county jail,
charged with the crime. Mies Leper ia
known all over the country. She lives
about a mile from Hackensack. Her
costumes at all times consisted of a pair
of boats or shoes, as occasion
required, divided skirts and a ehort
jacket and a masculine hat. Mrs. Le
per ha 1 ; had considerable trouble over
her radical notions about dress. She
has bsen driven from churches because
sbe persisted in wearing the unconven

story told by Miss Leper to Justice
Gumming today wae that she called at
the Milton home, there was no one at
home, but the soa Laurant. She said
ehe did not know this and entered the
house ac uaual. In (the assault which
followed. Miss Leper made a manly fight
against her assailant. She finally knock
ed tbe young man down. Her dress was
torn in tbe struggle. She got out of the
room while Milton lay on the floor.
FALL LYNCHING BEES.
ANOTHER INFORMAL HANGING IN
A Prominent Clt'lsn of Powell County
bwui'B f " r Killing TWO Man
tn L.n Thau Two
LnxtNOTOS, Ky., Oct. 14 —Another
lynching haa been added to tbe unusual
ly large fall series ol Blue Grass lynching
beea. Yesterday at tha close of the
Beettyville iair, Oicar Morton, a prom
inent citizen of Vowell county, went on
the warpath. Two weeks ago Morton
kjjled a man at Stanton, and was out on
Jr»i u '.s2P;is. lis ar.ived at the fair
to get drunk. When thoroughly intox
icated, be started to bunt for Sheriff
Simms, who was his deadly enemy, a
feud of long standing having existed
between tbe two. Sim ma and Morton
met near the entrance to lbs lair
grounds, and after a few words both
drew guua. A quick exchange ot shots
followed, Morton using two guns. II s
tirst shot broke tbe eneritf'a right arm
at tbe elbow. Joha Hogg, a friend if
Simme, whipped out hia gun and joined
in the battle. When the smokn had
cleared away, it was f< u:id that Sua
was dead, buying ueen ehot througti his
breast, in tbe abdomen and through tbe
arm. Morton waa shot through the
neck, while Hogg was uhurt. Morton
waa bustled to the county jtil, and
placed under guard.
The people became infuriated and a
big meeting was at once held on the
public square. Col. John Drummond
mounted a box and made a speech. He
eaid tiie murderer must bo hanged, but
tbat the work must be done qnietly and
with perfect order. Morton bad killed
two men in lees than two montba and
he must die by the rope.
A mob was quickly formed and
marched to the jail. Tbe jailor was
overpowered and the keya to Morton's
cell obtained. He waa found crouched
on the tioor, and after a bitter struggle
was seized and dragged out. Seeing bia
game wna up, Morton made the beat of
the thing and told tbe mob that he did
not care what they did with him, pro
vided tbey did their work quickly.
After a ahort parley he waa taken to
a little bridge some distance from town
and the rope was placed around his
neck. Tbe leaders drew their guna and
told him to jump or else he would be
riddled with hullets. Turning around,
tho doomed man cursed his captors and,
uttering wild imprecations, leaped into
space. The jump broke hia neck. Af
ter dangling in the air for some minutes
his body became stiff, and a volley of
ballets were fired into it. The mob
then dispersed, leaving the body dang
ling from tbe bridge. At noon today it
wan etill there.
None of the mob made any attempt
to conceal their identity, nnd tho hang
ing wob conducted with as much formal
ity aa if it had been a legal affair. The
murderer waa a wealthy man, who lived

The passengers of the East Louisiana

The greatest indignation and anger

London, Oct. 14.—A dispatch from
Shanghai, dated today, confirms tha
report telegraphed to tho Associated
Press that a rebellion has broken oat
100 miles from Hankow. The rebels are
fairly armed and very reckless. They
attacked tbe government buildings,
which were feebly defended by loyal
troops. The latter were soon defeated
and many of them were killed, many
others joined the rebels. Two mandarins
were killed. The province is almost de
nuded of troops and tbe rebels are
daily gathering etrength. It is expected
that they will advance on Woo Chang,
province of Hoo Pc, of which Hankow il
the capital. The garrison at Woo Chang
has gone to tho west, and the place is
therefore practically defenseless.
A dispatch to the Times from Berlin
sayß that Germany's refusal to interfere
in tbe Chinese-Japanese trouble does
not affect the question of tbe protection
to Europeans in China, in wbich she
will co-operate. Tbe German com
mander in Chinese waters has already
been authorized to dispatch a body of
marines to protect the legation in Pekin.
If there should be any trouble it il be
lieved that the moral effect ot even such
a small body of European troops would
effectually check a Chinese mob.

titled to one vote; married men and
widowers of family wbo pay personal

The Cloricil party, under this svatsra,
had great voting strength. Tho Social

Tbe elections were orderly except at

few days ago was atoned by a mob anc

Tbe counting of votes il a slow pro
cess. Returns from the Brussels dietrict
show that the Liberals and Clericals rati
closely, and new ballots will probably
be necessary. In Cbarloroi and Lioge,
mining and manufacturing centera, tbe
Radicals and Socialists were also ahead,
having defeated many liberal candi
dates, including Freere Joban, the Mod

minister of public worus ond agricul*

Tbe Catholic candidatea have been re
elected in all the Flemish towns, with
large maj irit.es. Ac far oa ascertained
at this hour, it appears the first trial of

check of the Moderate Liberals, to the)
benefit of the Clericals and Socialists.
