The Amnnnt ml the "r.H
Of th Ml.Tuo th sum of (,8-.5 was
taken by toe burglars. The remaining
tl.Ntt was in small silver change and too
l-ulky to carry away. The cashier's theory
is that the greatest portion of the money
was "planted'' at a short distant from tbe
lnk, as no progress could be made by tbe
poMessors of it because of its weight
Nearly tH,ilof th monev taken was in
gold piece of $5, $ 10, and ti) denomina-
Usis, and tt balance was in bank note,
scaroely any of them tin larger than
twenties and most of them ones, twoes, ami
fives. The robbers did not leave the most
minute clew to their identity. No one saw
them enter or leave the bank. Tby must
bave bean naseased of wonderful coolness
and confidence. Tbey evidently took th
bags containing th "swag" into Cashier
Reynold's sleeping room, cut them open to

silver, and then went tbair way.
Cashier Reynolds, when seen Saturday
night, said that no one but himself and .As

exander, of the United Slate Express com

said it was something that was liable to bap

thought, would not plac any blame upon

immediate ousting of the prent city gov
ernment tbe United States troops, acting
under orders from Gen. Merritt, wbo had
gone to Oklahoma City, prevented th elec
tion. Two or three weeks ago a charter
prepared by a committee authorix-td by tb
council was voted down. The original
charter people then call! an election on
the eld charter for Saturday, again without
the consent of th mayor and council.
Dispersed with Cold Kteel.
Uen. Memtt being appealed to aain sent
orders to Cot Synder, in command or the

der, carried out tbe orders at the point of
tbe bayonet bhe polls were opened and a.
large crowd assemble-! A nnmlier of per
sons endeavored to vote, when Capt Stile
threw bis company across the street and
gave the command to charge. The street
was cleared in a few second. The few who
resisted were uliHutly touched with tbe bay
onet of the soldiers ait I they dispersed on
Kent Them Trotting Aroanii.
Some of tbe Icad-m rubbed to another
point and declarol the polk open there, but
Capt Stiles double-quicked his company to
tnat point and cleared tbe street M. R.
lasgow then mounted a dry goods box, i
ralk-d the crowd aronu-l him, and told them
they had better disperse. 1 1wu he proceeded
to declaim against the interference of the
military authorities Capt Stiles thereuon
again ordered a charge, and tuougbt tha
speech to an abrupt termination.

At this point the S.-con 1 ward polls were
declared open iu another part of the city.
Leaving guards at tne pb already cleared

took some firearm from the room, cleared
the streot, and threw a guard around tbe
voting piaca. At thi juncture Capt Ham
mer aud J. IL Woisis, leaders of the voters,
held a consultation with Capt Stiles and
then catling tbe crowd together told them
that tbe military authorities bad orders
from headquarters to prevent the election
and were only obeying orders, and advised
them tbat they bad better disperse and go
borne. This ended the trouble, though the
soldiers were guarding the place all day.

prising twenty-four persons, were rescued on
the coast of New Jersey. At the Delaware
breakwater twenty-two vessels in distress
were assisted and 1M parsons taken ashore.
