OPENS UP BUSINESS IN LOUIS
His Haul Foots up $50,000 The
Little Sacks Play Their Part.
New Orleans, La., Nov. 3. The
lone highwayman who has been star
ring it in western Texas seems to
have forsaken his usual haunts and
has turned his attention it seems
to more :emunerative pursuits
than stage robbing. His opening
suceess has been marvelous and may
well encourage him to continue the
business. With their usual secrecy
and their unusual pertinacity, the rail
road and express officials refuse to see
or hear anyone seeking news of the
robbery, and decline either to affirm
or deny any of the numerous rumors
that fill the air. Hut The News cor
respondent has obtained from private
and authentic sources facts that indi
cate the loss by the express company
of not less than $43,000. The facts
of the great robbery are substantially
tl ese: As the express train on the
Queen and Crtscent route was run
ning along about 4:30 this morning
between Derby and Lacy stations
fifty miles north of here, and while the
passengers weie last asleep or dozing
a man entered the express car. and
approaching liaggagemas'er Henry
McElroy, who was seated about the
middle of thu car, covered him with a
pistol and commanded him to throw
up his hands. I he command was
speedily obeed and the robber pull
ed a sack over his he.ui and proceed
ed to the end of the car, where sat
Charles Laurey. so intent on checking
off his freight list that he had not ob
served the intrudei until, glancing up,
, , , ., ', if
he was looking into the barrel o( a
sixshooter held by a man who com-
manded him to throw up his hands
Mr. Iviurey dropped his freight book
and pencil and complied with alacrity,
and he, too, was arrayed in a sack
headgear that completely blinded him.
When this was done the robber lock
ed the door of the express car and
proceeded to empty the contents ol
the safe into a sack, the blindfolded
men judging of his movements by the
When he had secured what booty
was available he pulltd the bell:ord
and stopped the train as it was Hear
ing Nicholson, a station some fortv-
five miles from here. The train
was quickly started again by the rob
ber, who seemed to be familiar with
j the management of the bellcord, and
1 U is supposed he disembarked, al-
Solomon & Rosenthal,
though his orders to the blindfolded
men to continue holding up their
hands caused them to believe that
he was still on the train, until they
were lound in this position, paralyzed
with terror. When the train stopped
temporarily the conductor desiring to
ascertain the cause went forward, and
on reaching the end oi the coach next
to the express car found it locked
from the outside and the kev in the
door. The train was stopped and
the conductor had the door opened,
and when entering the express car
found its occupants as described.
The robbery was accomplished so
speedily and quickly that the officials
did not get more than a glance at the
man and would be unable to identity
him were they to see him. Only one
robber showed himself, and if there
were more, no one saw them.
A drummer who was in the smoking
car said that a man got aboard at a
water tank or small station some
miles back and took a seat in the
front of the car where his face could
not be seen. He was not noticed and
excited no suspicion. He left the
car and went out and stood on the
front platform for some time, and fi
nally was lost sight of and was thought
of no more until after the robbery.

San Diego, Nov. 3 Thu inquest held
over the remains ol the murdered man
found near the ranch of George Rey

pcdler from Hidalgo county, who had
before tmde other trios into Neuces
county, replenished his stock of ped
dler's wares at Collins and collected
several old accounts and started in his

killed, having been struck on the head
with an ax, as the shape of the ax was
plainly seen on the back of his skull.
The pockets of the deceased were
turred wrong side out, but the robber
and murderer did not find a small
leather bag bung around the deceased's
ncrk, which contained $105 in gold,
which still remained upon the remains
when found Monday.

conservative classes in this country
