train of the I linois Central, which left
here yesterday afternoon, was held up at
9:30 by four men at a point just below
Independence, La. Two men boarded the
train at Hammond station, and, covering
the engineer and fire-.ian, ordered them to
go ahead and take the siding at Independ

After the down train hud passed two other
men who were standing ou the track join

THREATS OF A MASSACRE.
The Captured Stockmen at Fort Mc Kin
ney in Peril.
Buffalo, Wyo., April 15. Ranchmen
are flocking in from all directions, and
within forty-eight hours not less than 500
to 600 men, all heavily armed, will be here
ready to take revenge ou the captured reg
ulators for the killing of Champion and
Ray. The country is closely patrolled.and
no avenue is left opeu by which the pris
oners could escape if the commanding offi
cers at Fort McKinney should be ordered
to turn them loose. The captured regula
tors are under strong guard, and will be
protected, if possible, while in the custody
of the military.
Van Home Wants Advice.
There are forty-three of the stockmen,
including some of the most prominent in
the territory. Colonel Van Home has tel
egraphed for further orders from General
Brooke, at Omaha, aud stating that in the
absence of instructions he would take the
prisoners to Douglas under guard. It has
not been learned yet whether he has re
ceived such orders. The governor has re
quested Colonel Van Home to deliver the
prisoners to ihe authorises of Converse
county, to lie tried for the killing of Ray
and Champion, and the colonel will prob
ably comply with his request.
Origin or the Trouble.
There are two sides to the question that
has resulted in the present state of affairs.
The "rustlers." so railed, are composed of
a number of small landholders who resent
the occupancy of large tracts of land
by the large cattle men; aud these
are joined with a number of men whose
reputations are of the worst. The large
cattlemen are charged with driving off the
small holders, aud the latter with stealing
the cattle of their persecutors and thou
sands of head have been stolen, slaughtered
and sold. The small holders have the sym
pathy of the general population, and when
a mau 1ms been arrested for stealing cattle
he has lieeu acquitted regardless of the evi
dence. The stealing has probably lieen
done by the hard characters who have
made the cause of the small holders their
owu for an evideut reason.
FOUND A BOMB FACTORY.
- j. .
Mystery of a Discovery lu the WoimI
Buffalo, April 15. -On Tuesday after
noon while Charles McAllister, a farmer
living one mile southwest of Brockport.,
was working in the woods on his farm,
with his hired man, they discovered a
snugly built shanty in a dense thicket.
The shanty was compactly built of bark,
and the crevices were tightly closed with
cotton-hatting. In one corner was a neat
sheet-iron heater, and lteside it a small
work bench and chair. The Hour was
thickly carpeted with leaves. Mr. McAl
lister searched the shanty thoroughly, aud
found several dynamite bombs of the most
approved puttern, and it in clear that the
hut has been used as a workshop for sev
On the door of the hut, outside, was
carved a skull and cross-bones and the
word "Beware," both symbol and legend
being phosphorized to show at night. In
addition there were several pleasaut pla
cards iuside the hut which bore such en
livening legends as: 'Beware, Your
Death Has Been Decreed;" "Death to All
Oppressors;" Tire and Blood Will.Purify."
A Question to Solve.
Several of the bombs were bronght to
the city yesterday, aud City Chemist Van
den bergh will analyze one. Not less than
a dozen gross of the bombs were taken
from the old swamp by Farmer McAllis
ter aud a party of neighbors. The ques
tion which now agitates the people of
Brockport and vicinity is: "Who are the
proprietors of this bomb factory, aud what
do they propose doing with their pro
ducts?" The authorities have begun an
investigation, and will try to find the
Must Be a Clever Workman.
The neighbors ara greatly excited over
the discovery of the shanty and bombs. It
must have taken a very clever workman
to build such an artistic ahauty and to
make such neat 1hiuI of brass and tin.
The shanty is within a mile of the village
ot Brockport aud it is curious that tt was
not discovered before, though at a distance
it could not be told from a large tree.
