ItruKh With Strangers Near Kelseyville,
Ind. They Prepare to Dine at a Far
mer's, But the Latter Starts a Flank
Movement Which I Spoilt by Very
Toledo, O., Sept. 14. A special to The
Commercial from Ossian, Iud., tyjys: A
dispatch from Kelseyville, Ind., a little
town in Whiteley county, Ind., about sixty
miles from Ossian and along the line of the
Nickel-Plate, says that a fruitless attempt
to capture five of the Kendallville train
robbers was made at that place. Ever since
the robbery occurred a sharp outlook lias
been kept for the robbers, and the town
marshal, J. G. Hardison, was specially in
structed to b in readiness at any time for
a struggle with one or more of the bandits.
The robbery has been the sole topic ol dis
cussion in Kelseyville, and many of the
farmers in the vicinity, and especially
those more distant from the town, have
been petting down their rifles and arming
their men for action.
He Ordered Rations for Five.
During the afternoon a colored man
about 25 years of age, mounted on a tired
looking pony, covered with dust and dirt
and wearing a slouch hat with the rim
thrown back, rode in at the gateway of
the farm on what is known as the Spring
Grove road owned by Jerome Stausbury,
and asked for something to eat. The pe
culiar appearance of the man and his
nervous manner aroused Mr. Stausbury's
suspicions, and while not daring to refuse
the man outright he hesitated, and enter
ing the house called his wife to the door.
Thereupon the negro, with a threatening
glance called out: "Oh, you needn't be
a!rail; I'm going to pay for it. I've got
money," at the same time pulling from
his pocket a well-filled purse. '"I want
Boniethingto eat, and 1 want all you've
got," he said, and then went on rapidly to
explain thtt he had ridden ahead of four
companions and that they would be along
in a few minutes. "'We're going to stay
in town," he continued, "and show you
farmers what a real wild west show is
like," he said, as he seated himself on a
chair in the kitchen.

Stansbury, now thoroughtly frightened,
but not daring to leave the farm, proceed
ed to help his wife in the preparation of
the lunch for the unbidden guest, manag
ing meanwhile to impart to her the sus
picion that he had in regard to the negro,
lie told her he was sure the negro was one
at the Kenfinllville train robbers, and
nearly caused her to faint. However, the
two managed to call their little daughter,

to her to slip out the back way through
the cornfield at the back of the barn and
into the town lo tell Marshal llardiscn
to come with a posse of men as quickly as
possible. The little one had hardly loft
the house before the negro who had stepped
outside entered the room and demanded
angrily to know what they had been do

The negro warned him not to fool with

the storv. In the meantime little Lizzie

Df three-nua iters of a mile, and after a
?ood deal of trouble communicated her
startling intelligence to Town Marshal
flardison. The latter rapidly spread the
ilarm and in less than ten minutes had
jucceeded in gathering about twelve nervy
jrouhg men, armed with guns, clubs,
stones, revolvers and other means of de
fense. At Hardison's side was Thomas
Wilkinson, a man nearly 50 years of age,
known as the pluckiest man iu Whiteley
:ounty and a veteran of the war. The
party with as little noise as possible
made for the istanbury farm.
Wilkinson a Little Too Rapid.
When within a short distance of it they
caught sight of the expected four men
surning the corner- of the Spring Grove
road and hastening to join the negro who
was now standing in front of the farm
house waving to them to co.r.e on. The
relief party hastily turned aside into a lit
tle patch of woodland, but Wilkinson in
sisted on riding ahead, holding in one
baud u rifle. He had not proceeded te:t
rards along the road before the approach
ing party caught sight of him and whis
tled a warning to the negro who was
turned the other way. The latter turned
luiekly and reached for his hip pocket.
Without stopping to thiuk of the conse
quence Wilkhison took deliberate aim and
ONE CARRIES AWAY A BULLET.

ami Not Kuger Chase.
With a yell of pain the negro pulled his
band away from his poiket and rushing
toward his pony, which was still hitched
it the gate, jumped on its back and started
to join his companions, who were still
standing undecided whether to come or
go back to the turn in the road. At this
point Wilkinson turned in his saddle and
yelling to his companions, "Come on boys,
we've got 'em now," dashed in pursuit of
tho robbers. The party headed by the
marshal quickly emerged from their hid
ing place and joined in the pursuit. The rob
bers, for such they undoubtedly were, held
their ground for a moment, scut a volley of
revolver shotB into the midst of the party,
then turned and started down the road.
The party followed them, Wilkinson and
Hardison, who were mounted, in the lead.
The chase was useless, hdwever; Wilkin
son and Hardison were outmatched, and
tearing for their lives gave up the pursuit
after they had gone a mile. In the first
volley fired by the robbers a young fellow
named James White, who keeps a grocery
at Kelseyville, was shot in the arm, but
not seriously injured. The robbers turned
On Wilkinson and Hardison twic: and fired
at them, but saw clearly thai they had
the advantage and contented themselves
wiin laugning sarcastically at tneir pur
suers. The nearest village to Kelseyville is the
hamlet of Saturn. It is impossible to
communicate with the people there, and
the robbers need not necessarily pass
through the place.as the Spring Grove road
runs along the outside of the village and
toward Roanoke. The country between
the three places is rather wild and there
will be plenty of hiding places. The Kel
seyville people have a good description ot
all the robbers, two of whom were negroes.
Chicago Detectives Discouraged.
Chicago, Sept. 14. Local detectives are
firm in their belief that the bandits who
held up the Lake Shore express Tuesday
morning will never be caught. They say
that with the start the robbers obtained,
together with the evidences of pro
fessionalism.indicate that the pursued men
did not go into the affair without due prep
aration. Two Suspects Captured.
RioiraoND, Ind., Sept. 14. Two men sus
pected of complicity in the Lake Shore
train robbery have been arrested here.
They refuse to give their names or any in
formation regarding their recent move
ments. Officers decline to say whether or
not they have any evidence against the
THE GREAT RELIGIOUS CONGRESS.
Fast Indian Given an Ovation A Greek
Chicago, Sept. 14. So general an in
terest is manifested in the pro
ceedings of the World's Parliament
of Religions that it has been found
inecessary to arrange Jfor overflow meet
ings in t he smaller halls, lu the Hall
of Columbus ProtabChunder Mazoomdar,
of India, delivered an earnest address in
the English language, which aroused so
much attention that when he had con
cluded the applause compelled him to re
turn to the front of the platform and bow
his thanks, the scene being emphasized by
the immense audience rising to its feet
and singing "Nearer My God to Thee."
Picturing the history of religion in India
he told in graphic language of how women
had been burned to death at the funeral
pyres of their husbands, and related the
history of the crusade against the burning
of widows. Theology, he argued, meant
uothing without morality, and the mar
riage of people, in different castes, al
though strongly walled, was bound to
come down before the interests of moral
ity and humanity. The practice of child
marriage, however, was gradually being
reformed, but. nt the same time a'strong
public sentiment was needed, especially
as numerous interests had interfered to
the detriment of this moral reform.
Referring to the religion he represents,
the Brahma Somaj, he said: "We do not
call our religion a Christian one, although
we claim Christ as our leader. TheBrahma
Somaj is open to all the world, and is in
tended to be a harmony of all religions.
We are ready to welcome all who wish to
acknowledge the divinity of Christ and to
call every man brother, no matter what he
may have heretofore believed. We are
working at all times for the speedy coming
of : he time when there will be no conflict
of religions and when all humanity will be
gathered under the same banner."'
A representative of the Greek church,
Archbishop Dionysius Latas, of Zante,
Greece, was the next speaker. Expressing
his gratification at finding himself in the
company of so many distinguished men he
spoke for over an hour on the history of
his own church, arguing that Greece had
laid the foundation of the original Christian
church. A claim he made for the Greeks
with great vigor and earnestness was
that usince long before the birth of Christ
the Grecians had been at the head of in
tellectual research aud we do not, even at
this daj-, give way to any other country
when it is a matter of menal vigor."
In treating upon man from a Roman
Catholic point of view Father William
Byrnes, of Cincinnati, waxtd exceeding
eloquent. He held that man was created
with a great purpose and a high aim, and
that it never had been and never could be
demonstrated that man was the result of
evolution. If his ambitions 'and aspira
tions were never to be gratified in this
world or the world to come it must be con
ceded that man was the most incomplete
thing in creation.

The Whisky Trust Afluirs.
Peowa, Ills., Sept. 14. The announce
ment that tho Frankfort Whisky Process
company was about to enforce an execu
tion against the Manhattan distillery, one
of the leading whisky trust concerns here,
created great excitement iu distilling
circles, but President Greenhut says that
the trust will pay the f40,000 involved and
avoid attachment. This is the result of a
test case over the infringement by the
trust of a whisky process patent and will
involve nearly all the other trust houses.
Prepared for the Current Robber.
Aurora, Mo., Sept. 14. The recent pres

bers has headquarters near here, and the
Gun club of this city, composed of business
citizens, have their guns handy with sixty
shells of buckshot each, as it is feared a
raid is to be made on the banks. They
have purchased eight Winchester rifles
and are ready for work.
" Gold Ore Found iu Wisconsin.
Ai'PLETOJf, Wis., Sept. 14. While drill

Hortonville, a vein of quartz was struck
