of October, 1331, George M. Sllsbeo of
San Autonio, where his father now
iciidesaud is a hard working eon
tiactor, robbed tho mall on thu Texas
Central railroad while occupying the
position of messenger. The robbery
embraced about fmty registered pack
ages containing $1,300. After the lob
bury Sllsbeo lied to Mexico ami ran a
mail hack about llfteen hundred miles
southwest of Chihuahua for about a
year. Some two weeks ago it was
learned by Kordinand Niggll, deputy
United htales marslinl, tliat young
Sllsbeo was at San Marcel, N. M. Mr.
Niggll left at once to find his man, and
on reaching 121 Paso learned that he
was in Silver City t-aillng under (ho
name of J. C. Phillips. Niggll pro
ceeded to Hiiver uuy witnout
delay and found his man laying
brick on tho new cout-houso
now being constructed for Grant
county, of which Silver City U tho
county scat. He was there arrested
and brought to this city, and will be
tried in Dallas next December. Slls
beo acknowledges his guilt, and says
that whiskey and friends were at tho
bottom of his act, thus departing from
the old and common plea that tlieie is
a woman at the bottom. Ho leaves for
Dallas to-morrow in chargo of Marshal
