St. Louis, September 20. A Jo(
Dispntch Kansas City special says this
morning, shortly before three o'clock,
the thunder bolt passenger on tho
Atchison, Topeluwfc Santa Fo railroad
was boarded-by a baud of twelvo
masked men at Coolldge, Kas., and
Wells, Fargo it Co.'s safe iv.bbed. Tlio
engineer refusing to stop the train
when ordered by tho lobbers,
was instantly killed. Tho fireman
unci biakeman wcro badly wounded as
was also the express messenger. It Is
impossible to ascertain the amount of
booty obtained. Tho robbery cieates
the most lilten 0 excitement in Kan
sas City, wheie it was thought, with
the breaking up of the James gang,
train robbing in the West would bo
forever ended. Coolldge, where tho
robbery was committed, is 11 small
station on tho Atchison, Topekn &
Santa Fe. -300 viiles west
of Kansas City, and, with the excep
tion of the the telegraph operator, Is
almost uninhabited. Armed pos-scs
havo been sent out from Emporia, To
pekn, Dodge City and other points to
pursue and capture or kill tlio robbers.
As the train pulled out from
Coolldge three men appeared and or
dered tlio engineer to stop. He re
fused and was instantly shot dead.
The fireman was also shot thiough thu
breast and badly hurt, though not
fatally. The men entered the express
car, but Samuel Peterson, the expieas
mesbcngcr was prepared for them, and
made such n vigorou fight thai the
robbers were driven oil". Find
ing the train aroused, and them
selves likely to be worsted they then
heal a reheat, having failed to secure
tho treasure they were after. Infor
mation was at onco telegraphed to sta
tions along the line, and n special
train started for Coolldge from Empo
ria with a posse of armed men In pur
suit. The dead engineer, who was
named John Hulton, lived at Kinpo
liu, his run being being between that
place and Dodge City.
IiATBii S. S. Peterson, tho express
messenger, was not hint Tlio robbers
got no money.
Tho grand jury of the criminal court
have made a report, In which they
state that 11 ring exists in the city,
formed by tho gambleis, and lottery
men and notorious individuals, who
have used money and threats to cor
rupt tho pollco officials ; also that
flome of the police commissioners Lad
given blank resignations which were
used by tlio ring. It is further de
clared that Clovc'iuor Crittenden has
tho 1 ower, and it is his duty to inves
tigate the two Indictments returned
against Warren F. McChesney, a con
spicuous member of the alleged ring,
0110 for bribery and one for forgciy.
Kansas City, September 20. Tho
Santa Fe train which was attacked at"
Coolldge at two o'clock this morninr,
anived here to-night. The statements
of the alfuir by the people on tho train
dlder "onsidciably from, the biief ac
count received hy telegraph. Owing
to the darkness and tho fact that to
few people are-about it is difficult to
learn tho exact histo'ry of the occur
rence. It is known that two robbers
engaged in the light and is gneiully
believed was three in the narty. C. C.
James, a postal clerk tells' the follow
ing story: "The train had btopped at
the station and the conductor had just
signa led to stai'L w lion a mnn with a
drawn nvnlvor olin I d on tho ongin
and ordered the engineer to surrender.
A bculllo ensued. Meanwhile a man
opened tho door of tho express car,
stumbling us he entered. He at once
opened fhe on tho messenger who
ciouched behind a box. Tho
robber fhed four times and
tlio messenger returned the lire when
tho former returned fiom the car just
its the fireman, who had left the en
gine, was ciolng tho platform the
lobber Hied and lied. The lircinan
loll senseless with a bullet through his
neck. Meanwhile the first robber, who
had been forced backward by the en
gineer, fell dead, shot thiough the
head. James, hearing tho firing, had
gone to the door of his car
and witnessed tho attack on tho
express cur. By ihls time
tho people had come out of the train
and tho robbeis had disappeared.
Only one or two persons witnessed the
shooting. S. S. Peterson, a messenger
who resides hero, told about tho same
story as James. He declined to say
now much money was on the exprr-s
car. Everybody seemed dazed bv tho
shooting, and it was some time before
a puisiilt was organized. One theory
of tho ufliiir Is that tho lobbers had
acconipllco fuither down the load, and
their intention was-tortin tlio train a
fchort distance and stop; that tho as
sailants were somewhat under the In
fluence of liquor, mid the plan nils
can led. Several rangers were seen
about tho platform belbie tho train
As a curious coincidence it Is 1 elated
that tho train was attacked a few
mile-, west of Coolktge, acioss the lino
in Colorado, jiwt one A-ear ago to
night, and that tlio Wei is-Fargo ex
press company'!) safe wti3 lobbed.
