Dklt.y. Colo., Sept h Cashier A T.
Clnclily. of the Fui-iiuta' nn.t Merchants'
bank, was shot dead while defending bis
trust by three robbers. Two of the ro(
beisare dead and the third will soon be in
the bands of theofticer of the luw, who
are in . hot pursuit. The foregoing sen
tences form the hiief but sad story of a
bloody tragedy that has occurred here.
The whole town is wild wita excitement,
and many are the vows of vengeance
beard. The business of the Farmers' and
Merchants' batik whs proceeding as usual.
There bad been quite a nuiitber of cus
tomers iu the earlier hours of the business
day. About 10:30 there was a tdifjht lull.
Murdered for II U Fidelity.
Three men bad been seen lounging about
the bank for a day or two without any
apparent business. But their demeanor
wan by no means such as to arouse
uspicion. About 10:4 a. in., when no
customers were present, these three men
marched into the bank and covered those
present with their kuus. The spokesman,,
presenting his revolver at the bead or
Cashier lilnchly, den. anded that he haiifi
over what funds there was in the bank,
"r.nd be quick about it." But Mr. niach
ly did not propose to give up the funds
under his charge. His resolution was fatal
to Mm. He refused to band over the
money. The robber without any further
warning opened ,ttte on the unfortunate
man, killing Mm' instantly.
Retribution Was Near at Hand.
The three men then grabbed all the cash
in sight, amounting to perhaps tlOO. Then
they started for the outside, where their
horses were hitched. But here they met
their nemesis, whose work was swift and
sure. W. Kay Simpson keeps a hardware
store near the bank. The noise of the shot
that killed poor Blachly attracted his at
tention. The uproar had also drawn quite
a number of people to the spot. But they
were not prepared for the robbers, while
Simpson was. His trusty Winchester was
loaded and he was a cool and sure shot.
Simpson got into the street in front of the
bank just as the three robliers were rush
ing out of the building with the pitiful,
petty flOO for which they had taken u
Well Done.! Merchant Simpson.
The sharp hooti ng hard ware man opened
fire at once while the robbers were at
tempting to inom.t their horses. His aim
was sure. "Crack!" and a roblxr bit the
dust, never to rise again. A muffled cheer
rose from the bystanders. -Crack!" An
other robber was hurried into eternity with
his boots on and bis prayers unsaid. This
took place in less time than it takes to tell
it, but the few seconds were the temporary
salvation of the remaining robber, who
was enabled to mount his horse and start
down the road for the surrounding coun
try. Simpson seut a couple of shots after
him, but to no purpose. The villain had
too good a start for even the keen eye of
the hardware merchant to correctly guage
his human target.
ON THE TRAIL OF NUMBER THREE,
And Determined to Catch Him Whole
By this time the bank was the center of
an excited, angry multitude of citizens.
They recovered from the shock, and while
a few tender hands went into the bank
and carried out the lifeless remains of the
heroic cashier others rushed to their
homes, secured horses, guns and ammuni
tions aud set off after the fleeing robber.
There are men on his trail who will not
eat nor sleep until they tree their game.
I'ublic feeling runs very high and It is
very likely that if the remaining robber is
brought into town unhanged and alive he
will be dangling at the end of a rope in a
very short time.
The identity of the robbers is a mystery
as yet. The bodies of the two assassins
were taken to the coroner's office where
they were viewed by hundreds, but nobody
seemed to know who they were. A few
bad seen them lounging around a day or
two before, as related above, but that was
all. The news spread with incredible ra
pidity, and very soon people from mile9
around began to arrive in the city, mount
ed and armed and ready and eager to lend
their assistance In running down the re
maining murderer. News is expected from
the pursuing posse every minute. If they
do not arrive or send news soon a regular
organized chase will begin. There is the
strongest determination manifested that
the robber who escaped shall be caught
and punished for his most atrocious crime.
The remains of Cashier Blachly were
carried to his home. He leaves a wife and
several children and was an old resident
of the county. He was highly esteemed
by all who knew him aud the whole town
is plunged into the deepeat sorrow by the
awful tragedy. It will be impossible to
control public ft-cliilg if the fleeing mur
derer is brought in alifo. Delta is the
county seat of Delta county, which was or

Later. A portion of the posse in pur
suit of the third robber has returned to
town and reported that they had lost the
trail in the mountains and that the man
would probably escape, ns he was w;;!i
mounted. The dead men bar! ber stop

Their Unsettled Value Giving Merchants
St. Iouis, Sept. 8. Manufacturers and
merchants of St. Louis doing business
with Mexico have noted an enormous fall
ing off in orders from there, due, they say,
to the unsettled condition of silver. Law
rence D. Kinsland, president of the St.
Louis Spanish club and head of a large
manufacturing c ncern, returned a few
days since from a tour of Mexico. He
says: "Merchants down there told me
that orders to the amount of $7,000,000
placed in the United States and Europe
had been cancelled the last three months.
The unsettled value of silver is the cause.
"A merchant might, buy a bill of goods
when silver was at say 40 percent, premium
and he might have to make a settlement
at 70 per cent, premium. As an instance
of the difficulties with which Mexican
merchants have to contend we have a
customer who recently had to pay 4,500
Mexican dollars for (2,iKH in New York
exchange, that is he bad to pay il,5KX)
premium for fU.GOO exchange. Mexican
merchants state that it would be better for
them to have a fixed standard , value for
their dollar, even if it were' below 100
cents, rather than to have the present un
certainty and fluctuation.'', rv
