there should lie religious services every

PROSPECTS FOR ADJOURNMENT.
A Feeling That the statesmen Can Go
Home on the 25th.
Washington, July 15. It is the opinion
of McMilliu, acting Chairman of the com
mittee on ways and means and other
Democratic leaders in the house that an
adjournmeut of congress can be reached
by the latter part of next week. In the
senate there is the same testing egarding
speedy dissolution, ar.d Aldru h thinks
the Sath will bring with it the adjourn
ment of congress. The last appropriation
bill, the general deficiency, was Wednes
day reported to the senate w tu a few
Two Things in the Way.
It is not expected that the impropria
tion bills will lead to much del,- y, except
for the World's fair clause in ti e sundry
civil bill. This item when it retches tne
house with its appropriation, iti Sunday
closing and its liq tor prohibition, is likely
to cause debate. The anti-optio i bill also
hovers with something of a sbadow over
the situation. Senator Wash mru has
announced his intention of again calling
up the bill at the earliest opportunity.
This would not occur, he thought, until
the general deficiency bill was disposed of.
Washburn Mill Press the Kill.
hen asked if the anti-option measure
was likely to delay adjournment, he re
plied: "Personally I would be villing to
stay here until December in onler to see
ti.f bill passed, but I do not s lppose its
other friends are quite as enthusiastic.
The hill ought to be passed no, so that
the growers of crops can secure its benefits
for this year's harvest. I shall certainly
press it with all sincerity and engeruess. I
hardly think that it will delae adjourn
ment. Would Occupy a Month at Least.
As a matter of fact, the opponents of the
bill say that they want to delate it for
six weeks. If it should only be ( bated for
one week, it could undoubtedly be amend
ed, and this would require a conference
with the house. Altogether nearly a
month would be occupied by the bill, and
It is doubtful whether either ho tse desires
at this juncture to devote much time to it.
Congressional Doings ltriefed.
Washington, July IS. After six days'
hard work the senate Yesterday completed
the consideration of I he sundry civil bill
and sent it over to the house with 3on or
400 amendments, increasing tin aggregate
appropriation more than (8,000,000, irre
8pective of the $."i,l".UJ worh 's fair sou
venir half dollars. The clause irohibiting
the sale of intoxicating drinks on the fair
groueds was reconsidered ami defeated,
but the Sunday closing proviso was left in
the bill. sjsj
The house devoted its time to conference
reports on appropriations, the legislative,
paval, diplomatic and consular bills be
ing agreed to. The principal item of con
tention was the retention of tl e appropri
ation of 14,000,000 for a new bat tleship and
16,090 fora naval display atHai ipton roads
next fall, each being finally retained.

After a Lively Fusillade with a Couple

Force the Messenger to Open the Door
The Safe Blown Open and Its Contents
PA!:sons, Kan., July 15. News has
reached here that the Missouri, Kansas
and Texas passenger train No 2 was
halted and robled at Adair station in In
dian Territory, seventy miles from here,
yesterday. The desperadoes who commit
ted the robliery are the Dalton brothers,
who have been guilty of more crimes of
this nature than any of the other gangs of
ruffians that make the nation their head
quarters. The thieves blew open the safe
and secured the contents, which, it is as
serted by an official who knows, were cer
tainly between $50,000 and $75,00.
Appearance of the Bobber Bang,
The robbery was not accomplished with
out a hard fight, however, in which Cap
tain J. J. Kinney, chief of detectives of
the Missouri, Kansas and Texas road: 1A
A. Flora, a member of the Indian police;
and two doctors, passengers in the train
and residents of Adair, were wounded.
None ot them, however, is likely to die
from the injuries received. The train left
Yinita, forty miles east of Adair, on time.
Nothing wrong was noticed until, a few
miles from Adair, two men with faces
masked jumped down from the tender
into the cab, and presenting revolvers at
the engineer and fireman ordered the
train brought to a halt. This command
was obeyed and the bain soon came to a
Had to Fight for the Swag.
As soon as the train stopped shots were
heard outside. Captain Kinney, Flora
and the two doctors who live in Adair
rushed from the cars. They saw two men
standing at the side of the express car,
into which they had fired several shots,
after the messenger had failed to comply
with their demand to Open the door. Cap
tain Kinney and Mr. Flora opened fire
upon the men, who promptly sent several
bullets at them, while several men came
from one side toward them. They, too,
opened fire, and a lively fusillade ensued,
in the couse of which Kinney, Flora and
the two doctors were wounded.
The Other Passengers Laid Low.
None of the otiier passengers came to
their aid, and they were forced to retreat
into the cars, their revolvers being empty.
The men .-ho had last appeared kept up a
lively firing for the purpose of intimidat
ing the passengers on the train, and with
excellent effect, not a soul appearing. As
a matter of fact, most of them were under
their seats or lying in the car aisles. The
two men at the express car were joined by
a third, only one man being 1 eft with the
engineer and fireman.
The Messenger Cnneludestn Let the Kas
Up to this time tha messenger had per.
feted in his refusal to open the door. One
of the Dalton boys shouted he had placed
dynamite under the car and would blow
it to atoms ift he door was not opened, fir
ing,by way of emphasis, several shots into
the car which passed uncomfortably near
the head of the messenger. At this the
messenger gave in and opened the door.
The three men sprang into the car, and
while one covered the terrified messenger
with his gun the other two turned their
attention to the safe.
A Posse Started in Pursuit.
Tht work of blowing it open was soon
accomplished and the contents quickly
extracted. After relieving the messenger
of his watch the robbers bound him and
dumped him in a corner of the car. They
then leaped to the ground and, after firing
several more shots, disappeared. After it
became a certainty that the robbers h..d
gone the train started for Adair. As soon
as the station was reached the alarm was
given a posse hastily formed ami a re
turn to the scene of the robbery made,
llul It t an Find No Trace.
No trace of the thieves was discernible.
That they were members of the Dal'on
gang, headed by the Daltons themselves,
is known beyond peradventure. The of
ficials here are reticent as to the amount
of money received by the thieves, but the
sum given above is vouched for by an of
ficial of the express company here. The
railroad people, while admitting the facts
stated, express surprise that the affair
should have taken place without loss of
The Dalton Gang (ireat Toughs.
Captain Kinney, the chief of detectives,

and the pillaging and murders with which
they are credited form a lengthy chapter
