Four Officers on the Train Who Don't
Seem to Have Been of Any I'se Two
Wounded, One Perhaps Fatally, by
the Bandit' Itecktess Shooting.
Wagoker, I. T., Oct. '23. The Kansas
City and Memphis express was wrecked
and nibbed by tho Cook gang of despera
does at Correta, a blind siding, five miles
south of here. The train was running
twenty miles an hour, nnd when within
100 feet of the switch a man came out from
behind an embankment and threw the
switch for the sidetrack, running tho
train into a string of empty box cars.
Kngineer James Harris applied the air
brakes and reversed the engine. Tho rob
bers commenced Uring at the engine and
coaches. As so n as tho train stopped
two of the robb.-rs commanded the en-
trinecr nnd flremnn ti Anrtn
r - ,

baggTipennd express enrs. '
Ild Their Work l.lke Experts.
Here they forced Express Messengot
Ford to open the doors by perforating the
side of the car with bullets. Meanwhile
two more of the robbers had taken up a
position it the rear end of the sleeper la
prevent any one escaping, two others
mounted the platform between the
smoker nnd baggage car. nnd two
more on the platform between first
nnd second coaches, all keeping up a con
tinual firing. The two robbers In the ex
press car were meanwhile ransacking tho
express car. securing all tho money in the
local safe. They commanded Messencei
Ford to op;-n the through safe, but when
he explained that the safe was looked at
tho main office and not opened until it
reached its destination they left the car.
Itobbed the Iam-nger Next.
The two on ths front platform then
started through the first coach, demanding
money and valuables. As soon as they
reached the rear end of the coach the two
men on that platform started through
the si-cond coach. When they were about
half way through a freight train fiUlowing
close behind whistled and Bill Cook, the
leader, who had all the time remained
outside issuing .commands, swearing nt
the passengers and shooting, called for all
hands to como out. The men on the ears
jumped out and when all wore on the
ground iired a vollev nt the train nnd
disappeared in the darkness. Then; were
eight or ten men in the party. Two ol
them were white and the others were half
breeds. i The Officials Were Too Slow.
Jack Maharn, an advance agent fot
Mabnra s minstrels, was hit in the fore-
bmk1 "'ni riinlr If nut
fatally wounded. Walter liarnes. of Van
Bureii, Ark., was also slightly injured by
a bullet striking him in the cheek, r-po-eial
Officers Helmick and Dickson, of the
Missouri Pacific, were on tho train, also
United States Deputy Marshals Brunnei
and Cusaver. but they wore covered by
Winchesters in the hands of the bandits
before they had time to make a move. Tho
train wus Imk ked up t this place for as
sistance and to give the injured medical
attendance. The entire train was com
pletely riddled with bullets, every wiudow
ENGINE CAB SHOT TO PIECES.
Two Indication or the Playful Earnestncsa
of the leKpcradoca.
Tho engine cab was shot ull to pieces,
even the Etcam gauge nnd gauge lamp
being shot away and the ground around
the wreck covered with empty shells. It
was a miracle that many lives were not
lost, as fully 200 shots were fired. Th
Missouri Pacific immediately started a
spt'cial train from from Little Rock carry
ing Superintendent W. J. McKco and
picking up deputy marshals. United
States Indian A gent Wlsdom.of Muskogee,
has ordered all the Indian police to report
for duty nnd will take the trail. Con
ductor V. Duncan, in charge of the rob
bed train, when Interviewed said:
"I was in .the sleeper when we struck the
cars on the sidetrack. I thought. It was n
head-on collision, and knowing that we
were closely followed by a freight I
grabbed a red lamp and started back to
Hag. When I readied the rear end I was
confronted by two men, who ordered mu
back In the car. I told them we were
closely followed by a freight and would be
run into, and asktid them to let me go
back to flai them. One of the men re
plied, "Well, go on, and hurry up." I
started back as fast as I could, hut, lieing
troubled with asthma, could not go very
fast. The two men began firing at me,
and told me to go faster."
Express Messenger W. T. Ford declined
to say anything further than that tho
robbers got everything they could lay
their hands on outside of the through safe.
The mail car was not molested. Tho loss
of tho express company will not exceed
$oU0, as instructions had lccn issued to all
ageuts In the territory to receive no money
or valuables for this train, und only the
company money, remitted by local agents,
was curried outside the through safe. Six
of tho gang passed through Wagoner,
piing at a slow trot, and seemingly not
the least ufraid of being captured.

I JOKE WAS TOO REALISTIC j " : '
One nayed on Street Car Faweogers by
Chicago, Ort. 22. A crowd of football
plnyers hoarded an Alley "L" car at Fifty
fifth street. They bore with them the
body of one of their number, which they
carried carefully and as if on a st retcher.
After depositing the form on the floor ol
the coach the boys covered it with some
coats and then they sat around and looked
solemn. . The unusual sHctnclo, of course,
created some comment. Tho passengers
Wore shocked and declared the conductor
should not allow a puUlio vehicle to be
turned Into a hearse. Women got solemn
and then frightened and some of them
started to lenve tho e.-ir, and unfiling
wretches talked about idiots who pluv foot
ball. They pointed to the prostrate, coat -covered
figure as proof of the theory they had
always held of the dangers of the rough-and-tumble
game. Finally one Inquisitive
old man, lienevolont In appearance, ap
proached one of the uniformed boys and
Inquired where his companion was killed.
Then there was a whoop nnd a yell. The
supposed corpse threw ofT the coat, jumped
into the air. and as tho practical, jokers
gathered around, led off on some wild
toned college yell. The plnyers of the
rather ghastly joke, were the only ones,
however, who fully approciuU-d It. It
looked too realistic.
