horse dashed away at full speed in face of
the crowd and soon had him behind the

jail for a lor.;; time, but wer;' finally pT
untied by the mayor to disperse, I!ut
later the crowd reassembled and in in
creasim; numbers as niul.t approached.
The mayor this time determined on more

Abrnir dark the crowd, increased by lf0
men from the vicinity of the woman's
home, headed by Mrs. Ilishop'.s son, a lire
man on the Norfolk and Western railroad.
At S o'clock portions of the mob battered
at a side door of the jail where the militia
and Mayor Trout had retirttl. Shooting
was rommenced hy the mob and the mayor
was shot in the foot. The militia were or
dered to return the lire, and a volley from
about twenty-five rifles was poured into
the moli. During the excitement caused
by the volley the negro was taken from
the jail by an officer and secreted. The
dead and wounded were removed to a

.Several speeches were made and Judge
Woods assured tiie mob that the netrro
Smith had i.een removed from the jail
and accompanied two of the crowd through
the jail to prove the truth of his stutement.
This, and the speech of J. Allen Watts,
the Democratic candidate for the state
Semite, did much to pacify the crowd.
Hut they hung around the jail nuil adjacent
treets for several hours afterwards, many
dispersing to search lor the secreted
prisoner. At midnight the scene had
quieted down and no further trouble was
expected. The militia remained under the

Mackinac Island robbery a strange look

iouslj disappeared in the morning.

from the ruck of a tu le at which Edward

Hot ltattle In the Exprent Car Robbers
Flee Without the Swag.
CENTKAUA, Ills., Sept. 2l. The New Or
leans limited train on the Illinois Central
railway was held up just outside this city.
and in the battle which followed between
the three "robbers and the train hands one
of the robbers was mortally wounded and
thre" of the train crew were badly hurt.
The thieves got nothing in the way of
booty and all the grown inhabitants of
this place are on the hunt for the two dar
ing thieves who got away. There was a
large sum of money on the train as much
Nameft of the Men Shot.
iiiose w no were nun in the shooting in
cident to the attack were: Engineer Young,
Conductor O.luni, Fireman McDowell,
roblier, name unknown.
Hoarded the Train at Centralis.
The stop here was short, and during the
same three men, heavily armed and carry
ing tools which later came into play,
boarded the front end of the express car.
The lights of Centralia's streets hud
scarcely disappeared from view and En
gineer Young had hardly pulled open wide
the throttle w'uen both I iretnan Mc
Dowell and the engineer heard a noise on
the tender behind them. Both turned in
alarm. Their fears were realized, for
staring them in the face were two big re
volvers. Keep your mouths shut and stop the
machine, or we'll shoot," t he robbers cried.
Not That Kind of stud'
The engineer and fireman were not made
of that kind of stuff that flinches at train
robbers, and were not even dauuted by
the recollection of the affair on the Lake
Siiore only a short time ago. Both sprang
nt the robbers. There was a clear track
ahead. The two railroad employes had
hardly reached the foot of the coal heap
when two sheets of tire flashed in their
faces and both fell wounded on the plat
form connecting cab and tender. One o
the masked robbers sprar.g over the forms
of the bleeding men and stopped the train.
THE MESSENGER WAS LOADED-
Proper Sort of Iteply to the Itesperadoes'
le m an lis.
When the train had slopped one of the
robbers ran back to the coaches and, re
volver in hand, stood guard over Baggage
master Armstrong and Brakeman Stay-
cey. The two other thieves climbed to the
top of the express car, in which were the
messenger of the American Express com
pany and Conductor CMum. They were
just lieginuing to get curious as to the
stopping of the train when they heard a
furious pounding on the express car door.
"Open the door or we will blow you up,"
they heard a man cry.
Their reply was a shot from a revolver.
This was followed by another and anoth
er. The men outside the car also took
part in the fusillade. Tiie attack took a
new turu. The men iu the car had emp.
tied their revolvers and were reloading
them. Iu this lull the robbers climbed on
top of the car and with grappling hooks
opened the door and r.isheo ;u, revolvers
iu hand, faced by conductor and messen
ger both similarly cpupp.-d.
Then followed a battle royal. The mes
senger aud conductor were plucky, and
paitly barricaded by boxes and packages
fired at the robbers as fast as they could
shoot. The thieves fired, too, but they
were at a disadvaut ige. Neither side
seemed to be able to conquer, when help
came to the railroad employes.
On the train was P. J. Sunders, a brake
man on the road. He came to the rescue
of the conductor and messenger armed
with a shotgun. He attacked the robbers
from the rear and shot one through the
body. The others seeiiig their companion
fall bleeding took to their heels aud got
away through the trees and fields, aud
the whole country is on their trail.
He Advocated Polygamy.
Chicago. Sept. 21. The feature of the
World's Parliament of Religion was the
address of Mohammed 11. A. Webb, the
St. Louis newspaper man who has "turned
Turk." He said that iu some countries
polygamy was justified and that there was
no reason why a Christian should not
be a polygamist. He was met by vigorous
protests on the part of his audience, but
had his say out. The incident was quite
excitiug and noisy.
