Wounded Robber Death of Buck Mont
gomery. Sax Fkaxcisco, May 16. Near Redding
Saturday evening the Shasta stage was
robbed and one man Messenger Buck
Montgomery killed, while Driver John
Boyce and a man named George Suhr were
wounded by the robbers. One robber was
wonnded by Montgomery and has been
captured. The robbers got the Wells
Fargo box with, some say, $20,000. Full
details of the robbery show that all hands
on the stage displayed good nerve. The
messenger had his gun out and shot one
roblwr before- he could grab the treasure
box.but his companion hidden by the road
side gave t he messenger his death wound.
The driver.who was hit in the knee,will 1
crippled for life, but, though bleeding ter
ribly, he handed the reins to the passen
ger beside him and workedthe stage brake
with his hands until the horses were under
control. The passenger on the box seat
was painfully hurt, but not dangerously.
Caput a re of "Arizona Charley."
The robber captured gave his name as
"Arizona Charley." He was found yester
day lying in a ditch almost exhausted not
400 yards from the scene of the crime. He
says there were three in the gang, and
that his pards robbed him and ran off and
left him to die. He says their names are
"Arizona Pete" and "Arizona Jim." He
would have surrendered Saturday night if
anybody had come after him. He is shot
in five places all the way from knee to eye.
Two shots entered on either side of his
nose just below the eyes, another in the
upper lip, and still another in the left
cheek almost in the mouth. He may live,
owing to his great nerve.
Description of the Fight.
When the stage was stopped by the
robbers, Buck Montgomery, the messen
ger, was ou the bark seat inside. A man
armed with a shotgun, with a red bandana
mask, ordered tde stage to stop and the
passenger on the box to throw up his
hands. Theu he ordered the boxes thrown
out. The dr.ver complied, but about this
time the messenger inside opened fired up
on the highwayman, who dropped to his
kuees, and then his partner, hid in the
bush, returned the fire with a rifle, giving
the messenger his death wound, a bullet
in the navel. The passenger received
three buckshot in the calf of the right leg
and the driver got five buckshot in the
right knee. The robbers then disappear-

Brave Work by a Woman.
The team started to run, but was con
trolled by the two wounded men on the
box. The first news of the crime was
brought to Redding by the wife of Dr.
Steveuson. She was driving along the
road with her husband when they came
upon the disabled stage company. She
immediately had the doctor attend the in
jured, while she drove five miles at a full
gallop over a dangerous mountain road to
Redding, where she warned the sheriff
and secured another doctor, returning to
the scene at full speed. A great crowd
which gathered iu the street cheered the
plucky woman as 6he drove away.

This robbery following several others
has stirred up the Wells-Fargo company
and it has sent Detective Hume to the
scene of the crime. Hume is regarded as
the best trailer of robbers on the coast and
he proposes to use bloodhounds to run

which the fugitives are traveling is wild,
broken by mountains and settled only by
an occasional prospector or rancher. The

The Death of the Brave Messenger.
Buck Montgomery was an old shotgun
messenger who had served for many years,
having previously been a stage driver. He
was a fearless man and a dead shot. He
died in agony, with his wife and two chil
dren weeping over him. It is feared that
his wife will lo&e her mind, as she is spon
to become a mother.
Thinks He Can Catch ,the Others.
Detective Hume is confident that when
he reaches the scene of the robbery he can
secure one of the uninjured highwaymen.
He says that from descriptions one of

suspects is only 17.
MINING FOR THE CZAR.
A Tunnel and Explosives Found Under
BERLIN, May 16. French detectives
have found that the Gatschina palace of
the czar has been undermined, and an
underground chamber under the czar's
sleeping room was filled with explosives.
The nihilists back of the plot would have
started the explosion the next night the
czar slept in the palace had
they not been frightened away by
the signs of discovery of their plot.
The undermining had been done by
means of a tunnel which led to a hill near
ly JW0 yards from the palace. This en
trance was concealed by a large rock,
around which the sod was laid so carefully
as not to betray its frequent disturbance.
