THE WORLD'S FAIR CONGRESSES.
Conference of 4'harit4e, Iri.son lleform,
and Roman Catholic Temperance.
CHICAGO, June SI. There has been another
added to the list of World's congresses the
Conference of Charities and Corrections,
the initial me -ting beginning the work at
the Art Insi itute. Mrs. J. M. Flowers
welcomed the delegates, and responses
were made by Hon. A. E. Elmore, of Wis
consin. The discussion was on the public
treatment of paupers.
Tha Roman Catholics began their tem
perance work, and Bishop Feehan did the
welcoming. Total abstinence was the
burden of all the addresses afternoon,
evening and this morning. The W. C. T.
U. was also dealing sledge hammer blows
at the saloonkeepers and the speeches were
numerous and by both sexes. The vege
tarians were busy proving that their sys
tem of food was the final solution of the
drink question, and of all other questions
relating to health or its relation to morals.
The non-partisan V. C. T. U. continued
its deliberations. The Medico-Psychological
association closed its meeting.
Prison discipline was the subject tackled
by the Prison Iteform association, and the
new president. General Brinkerhoff, of
Ohio, waa installed in the place of the la
mented ex-President Hayes. Much of the
time was occupied in memorial addresses
to the late president of the associat ion. St.
Paul was selected as the next place of
meeting, and the association today ad
journed sine die, and -will become part of
the aftitemational Prison Reform -congress,
which opens tomorrow. '''
I looted the train.

Columbia, 111., June 9. Six masked men
held up the New Orfeans exprjess on the
Mobile & Ohio railroad at Forest Lawn,
eight miles north of here, at 9 o'clock at
night, and robled the express car of $10,
000 in cash and valuables worth a large
amount. The robbery did not occupy over
twenty miuutes' time. A large posse is
now in pursuit of the bandits. The ex
press makes a short stop at Forest Lawn,
and when it came to a standstill two men
jumped into the engine and pointing re
volvers at the heads of the engineer and
fireman told them not to attempt to start
the train again.
Astonished the Messenger.
While this was taking place four men
appeared at the side of t lie express car.
One of them placed a short ladder against
the car ami then chopied a hole in the
door. It took but a moment to do this,
ami lK'fore the astonished express messen
ger realized what was happening the door
burst open and the four men were in the
car. Messenger llranford attempted re
sistance, but was silenced by a blow with
the hatchet iu the hands of the robber who
hail chopped the hole in the door.
Added Insult to Injury,
The bandits lost no time in ransacking
tlie car. Hratiford was only partially
t-t turned hy the blow he received and his
assailants revived him to open the safe.
Its contents they placed in a Mick, together
with what other valuables thev secured
Riaiiford was then bound, gagged and cast
into a corner of the'ear. It took less time
to loot the car than it takes to tell it, and
in the meantime the bandits at the engiue
encountered unexpected resist -,:ice.
Were "Onto" the Kiiglneer.
Engineer Lewis was with the train held
up at the same point ten days ago, and, as
he said afterward, made up his niiud he
would ilo his best to outwit the thieves.
He waited until his captors had ceased to
watch him closely, and then gave the lever
a gentle pull. The moment the train
moved, however, the men on the engine
placed revolvers so close to Ix'wis' head
that Us courage oozed, ami he brought the
train to a standstill again.
Kseapc ti the II ighway men.
As the iv cuts jumped from the car the
conduct-', a u.l several of the trainmen
opened lire on them and they returned it
wii h i nt ere t, though none of the bullets,
so far j:s known, took effect. The liandits,
who were armed with Winchesters and re
volvers, drove their assailants into the
cars and among the passengers, who were
rendered panic-stricken by the fusillade.
Hatl Kvery Chance to Get Away.
.V volley of shots was heard, apparently
fired for the purpose, of intimidation, and
then the rohlx-rs took to their heels. There
was every chance for themtot'scape, as the
place is a lonely one, with swamp and un
derbrush on each side of the track for a
distance of two or three miles. There is
