A RICH HAUL
BY DARING BANDITS
Train Robbers Hold Up Express Train
In Mississippi and Take Nearly
Hattlesburg, Miss., May 15.?A rich
haul, variously estimated at from
$35,000 to $200,000, was made by two
masked bandits who early this morn
ing held up the Queen & Crescent
New York limited train No. 2 near
Okahola, a flag station eight miles
south of Hattlesburg, and blew open
the safe of the Southern Express car.

be the pair who held up the Mo

in February, made their escape and
tonight were still at large.
When Sheriff Bennett of Perry
county reached the scene of the hold
up with bloodhounds, about dawn,
the trail of the robbers was taken
up by the dogs. This led them to
the junction of the New Orleans &
Northeastern railroad and a tap line
road, where the trail was lost. It
Is believed the men boarded a freight
train at this junction. Four men
are reported to have been seen leav

The safe in the exprss car was
locked with a time signal lock when
the train left New Orleans lnst night
and there was a guard in the car In
addition to the regular messenger.
It is said there was one package
of money representing-the pay roll of]
the Alabama & Vicksburg railroad at
Meridian and about twenty five pack
ages of money representing the re
mittances of agents of the express
company at points along the Vicks
burg, Shreveport & Pacific railroad.
In addition to these there were two
or more sacks of silver, containing
one thousand dollars each, other
packages of currency and several
packages of jewelry, valuable stock
certificates and bonds.
Tho holdup of the train was ef
fected in a true wild west manner,
but, notwithstanding a generou?
flourishing of weapons, not a shot
was fired. The passengers were not
When the train was passing the
flag station, Okahola, the two mask
ed bandits climbed over the tender
and with drawn revolvers, called out
to engineer Maher and his fireman,
"Obey orders." The engineer im
mediately threw on his brakes, saying
"I'll stop right now."
"No," said one of the bandits, "pull
on around the curve and stop when
I tell you to stop."
After the train had turned the
curve above Okahola, the engineer
was given the command to stop and
With guns pointed at their heads
the engineer and fireman were
marched back to the baggage car and
the former was ordered to call the
express messenger. When Messenger]

that the defendants are guilty of
usurping and intruding into, and are
unlawfully holding the exercising the
duties of oltice, the supreme court In
a decision today by Associate Justice
Watts and concurred in by the entire
court ousted the appointees of the
governor In Beaufort county as town
"It is the judgment of thlB court
that the defendants be excluded from
said ofllceB and that the plaintiffs re
cover costs In each case against the
defendants", says the decision of the
The opinion concludes thus:
"It is therefore adjudged that the
defendants against whom these actions
are brought and are still before the
court are guilty of usurping and in
truding into and are unlawfully hold
ing and exercising the duties of the
ofllce of township commissioners in
Beaufort county, and it is the judg
ment of thla court that the defendants
be excluded from said offices and that
the plaintiff recover costs in each case
against the defendants."
The opinion is by Associate Justice
Watts and is concurred in by the en
The action was brought by Attorney
General Lyon, representing the state
of South Carolina, to oust C. A. Ver
dler, J. R. Cooler, W. W. Hudson. A. J.
Alexander, W. II. Stalworth, B. C.
Rolneau, J. W. Campbell, R. Josselson,
C. A. Walker, R. A. Coburn, and S. S.
Kellars, as township commissioners
who were appointed by the governor
without regard for the recommenda
tion of the Reaufort county delegation.
"The demurrer to the return," says
the supreme court, "is on the ground
it fails to state facts sufficient to con
stitute a defense and that It falls to
show why defendants should not be
ousted from office, In that It falls to
allege that any of defendants were
appointed by the governor, either In
1911 or 1912, upon the recommendation
of the senator and members of the
house of representatives of Reaufort
county. On the trial of the cases an
order was passed dismissing the com
plant as to B. JosselBon. The demur
rer Interposed by the defendants to the
plaintiff's complaint are overruled, and
the demurrer interposed by the plain
tiff to the answer nnd returns of the
defendants must be sustained. These
cases are controlled by decisions of
this court in Ellege vs. Wharton (Ad
vance sheets) 89 S. C. 113 and Golden
vs. Wharton (Advance sheets) 90 S. C.
335. The court holds that there Is a
striking similarity between the case
providing for township commissioners
In eBaufort county and rural police
men In Greenwood county.
