Clin ai. March Chicago has the
prize robbery to retort, which U right in
line, for -be tries to Lave everything first
cla. The peculiarity of tbi robbery is
that it took r.late at i.ih coon fright in the
court hou-; riht under the noses of the
judges and ribt over the noses of the po
department, if. . Fox. a First Na
tional bank collector. the victim and
the place vms one ot the staircases of the
court hou--. La. I jtirt received t3X
from the city tres-ure. and fr00 from the
county treasurer and was descending the
dark stairway to tt.e main floor of the
bc.ililir.t; v. ht-n at tie turn of the staircase
some ruan, Whim be bid not seen, threw
his arms abont tii E -c and choked him
almost to iiien-;bi! ty. The man then
grabbej ie two lackasva of money, and
rashir. n t lie stiirs escaped through
the VTa-Uinttn stntt entrance into the
Th Robber Vi-il f.ets Away.
AVben Fox rex-.-.ve.-v from the choking
which he had receive .1. and while still in a
dazed condition, be wandered down the
staircase to the lower Soor and not i fled one
of the police cf the building of his loss.
The two men rushed into the street in
hopes the man mi-jUt b still in sight.for it
was thought he would be running rapidly
from the scene of the holdup. They saw
ao one whom th-y b?!'evel to have been
guilty of the crime n.i 1 went at once to the
city police be-.da aarttrs were thev reoorte.1
the case. OiTicers '.vere at once sent out to !
econr the ct-ntr.il pnrt of the city for the
robber. They hail very little to w-ork upon.
Fox was unable to give any description j
of his assailant. The man came upon him so
raddenly and the stairway at that tnra is t
so dark, the only light reaching it bein-j;
from the floor above and below, he had u
opportunity whatever of getting any kind
of description of the man.
Desirable Field for Nervy Crook.
The messenger makes frequent visits to
both the city and county treasurers, but
can scarcely recall a single instance where
he has walked down the stair? instead of
taking the elevator. Scarcely a building
in the city affords such a desirable spot
for a mbber to get to work in the busy
time of the day. The county building cor
ridors are wide and the stairways, flacked
by massive metal railings, are situated as
far from the light as the architect found it
possible to put them. On the brightest
days one can scarcely descend these stair
ways without feeling each step before tak
ing it, and oa a day as cloudy as yesterday
the stairways are literally as dark a a
Hardly a Possibility of Capture.
Fox says he was utterly unable to catch
any view of the robber's features. Be
wildered and dizzy from the sudden attack
he was unable to pursue the robber until
the latter had had sufficient time to make
his escape and thoroughly lose his identity
amid the crowds in the corridor. Some of
the officers even admit that there is scarce
ly a possibility of his apprehension, and
one said that it was not at all unlike ,
thiit if the robber is what is known in r r
lice parlance as -a good man" he was
one of the foremost in the group to sur
round the unfortunate messenger and com
miserate with him over his Ions.
TWO RASHLY IMPO?TUNATES.
Tonng; Lo?en of Milwaukee Iie Together
at Pus Christian.
Pass Cueietias, Miss., March 17. A
moot startling discovery 'was made here
yesterday of the bodies of Miss Alma Nun- '
nemacher, a daughter of Herman Xunne- !
macher, a prominent merchant of Milwau- '
kee, and Mr. William li. Miller, also of
Milwaukee, both of whom were shot
through the head. Miss Xunnemacher
had bees spending the winter here with
her parents and lost week Mr. Miller, to
whom she was engaged, arrived here. Her
parents opposed the match, and on Fri
day afternoon after luncheon she left the
house, and as night came on and she did
not return, and Mr. Miller had also disap
peared, it was supposed that they had gone
off to be married.
Done in the Desperation of Love.
On Sunday the parents left, hoping to
find their daughter in New Orleans. Yes
terday afternoon a young boy found the
bodies in a pine thicket on the north siae
of the railroad about 'JXt yards from the
station. From the position in which th y
were lying the supposition is that tue
young man must have first shot bis or n
panion through the left temple and then
shot himself behind the right ear, ai d
death in both instances must have been in
stantaneous. Evidently a Premeditated Act.
The affair was evidently premeditated as
Mr. Miller had borrowed the pistol from
one of the citizens on that morning. The
deadly weapon was found by bis side where
it had fallen after he had fired the fatal
shots. The news has been telegraphed to
Miss Nunnemacher's fnther, who is in Hot
Springs. The bodies are lying in Lange's
undertaking parlors awaiting interment.

sational cases of recent times ia western
Pennsylvania. Dr. WjkofT, the leading
figure in this trial, is t be son of a well

sult of the attempt to rob the bank was

ThM the First Chief Arthur Orders

Refuse to Handle " Srnb " Freight
Cause of the New Ootbreak Chicago
Switchmen Credited With Troublous
Toledo, March 17. The recommenda
tions of State Railroad Commissioner
Kirkby and . President Ashley were pre
sented to the Ann Arbor strikers with
every assurance that they would be ac
cepted it having been airreed on both sides
to accept. Yesterday afternoon, however,
the men refused to do so, as they did n.t
meet their views in one particular. The
principal objection was thnt the non-union
men would not be ousted. The men say
they will remain out and that all the em
ployes in other branches of the road will
go out also. The brotherhood men o:s con
nections, finding that they could not law
fully assist the strikers byhtycotting, will,
it is rumored, go on a general strike.
Arthur Defies I'ncle S im.
Commencing this morning, however, the
engineers on all Toledo roads and all oth
ers making connect ir-ns vt it'i the Ann Ar
bor will refuse to handle freiii'ut ollered to
that road. This is by order of CaU-f Ar
thur, who last evening stated that such
was his decision. He sai l he gve it f-T
publication. When asked what he would
do about the circuit court order that the
men must not refuse to handle the
freight he replied it was one of the ques
tions yet to be decided. He said the imme
diate reason of the order was because the
Ann Arbor wculd not take back the men
who left the company's employ.
Charges Kirkby VI it'. Treaum.
Arthur charges State Railroad Commis
sioner Kirkby, who has been the peace
maker for three days back, with betrayiug
the cause of the men. He says a clause iu
theteimsas agreed upon was that ail the
old employes should be given their former
positions without prejudice. Arthur says
this clause was not presented to t he com
pany at all. which made a provi.-iun that
all applications must be made in writing
to the master mechanic of the road, who
must recommend the men IWore t'icy
would be re -employed. This :s equivalent
to saying none of them could come back.
Strike Will He Precipiiated.
Governor shley says that freight will
be offered today as usual. This will pre
cipitate the general strike that has so long
been feared. There is much worry among
ail railroad men here who had hoped Kirk
by would untangle the trouble. The Lake
Shore is having circular letters p.repared
which will he presented to all engineers
and firemen containing a copy of the cir
cuit court onier to obey the interstate com
merce law r.tKut accepting freight and
warning them cf their liability if they re

Chicago, March 17. Rumors are again
current of unrest and agitation in railroad
labor circles. It is said that ail the em
ployes of an extensive western system have
made a demand for a general increase in
wages. It is believed that in view of the
active preparations made by the railroads
to fill the places of men who determined to
go out the switchmen thought it best to
hoodwink te railroad officials and wait
for a more opportune time to strike. It is
now said that the switchmen intend to
wait until e'ter the World's fair is in full
running order and then without the slight
est warning stop every wheel in the
Striking Miners Give l"p Hope.
PITTSBURG, March 17. The Mononga

period lasting more than seven months, no

and it now appears to be only a quest" n
of time ere tbe greatest battle ever fought
by the miners in this region will have
reached an end.
