Instantly the alarm was given and

under the general command of Super

News of the robbery was telegraphed
to Lexington, Columbia and tho sur
rounding towns. Sheriff Miller, of Lex
ington, with deputies, went in an auto
mobile to the scene and joined In the
pursuit. Guard J. C. Bobbins, of the
penitentiary, took his blood hounds
from Columbia on the four o'clock
train nnd placed them on tho trail of
tho highwaymen. They Immediately
Struck the scent and followed the
tracks of the fleeing men up Broad
River towards the Union County side.
A long distance telephone message
from Parr shoals early in the night
staled that the men had II3d up the
river on foot towards Union, with the
blood hounds on the trail, but it was
thought they would make an effort to
secure boats and double back down the
river. A (dose watch is being kept on
all sides and well armed and well or

Money in Three Hags?
II. W. Mahar, the paymaster, had
been to Columbia and secured the mon
ey with which to pay off the 1,000 em
ployees for two weeks' work, lie had
$1 COOS.11 in throo hags, one bag con
taining $3,000 In gold, one containing
$33,11 and one bag containing $12,G5?
in currency. Tho gold was in 15, $io
and $?_*() pieces; $1,500 of the currency
in $1 bills and the balance in $.">,$10
and $20 denominations. Paymaster
Mahar had gotten the money from Co
lumbia by oxpross and the express
company turned It over to him at Parr
Shoals, getting his receipt for same.
Accompanied by Assistant Cashier
Bultman and Constable Joynor, who
was acting a s guard, they had started
from Parr Shoals depot for tho pay
master's office and were passing
through a delle, made up of empty
(mix cars on one side and a high em
bankment On the Other, when three
men jumped out and threw pistols .in
their fat es. Tho men were white, but
had blacked their faces. Two of them
were said to be of medium height and
build, while the third was a heavy set
fellow with a mustache. After secur
ing the money they crossed the rail
road tracks and made up the river, so
their foot prints showed.
Caused Croat Excitement.
When tho news of the robbery first
spread about Parr Shoals there was
much excitement and indignation and
tin! angry looks on the faces of the
men swarming on the trail of the rob
bers boded ill for the perpetrators.
However, it was reported from Parr
Shoals late this afternoon that tho ex
citement and indignation had subsid
ed Into a quiet and systematic deter
mination to follow the robbers with re
lentless persistency until they were
captured and behind the bars.
A telegram to the Columbia po
lice tonight from Chief Hayes, of the
Spartan burg police, stated that an au
tomobile was stolen In that city this
morning, but whether It was supposed
to have any connection with the rob
bery is not known.
The country around Parr Shoals Is
heavily wooded and sparsely settled,1
making the following of the robbers
difficult. The faet that their tracks
are following the bank of Broad River
closely leads to the conclusion that the
three desperadoes are hugging the
bank, expecting to take to boats and
Cms try and throw the bloodhounds
off the scent.
Columbia Police on Alert.
The Columbia police are keeping a
strict watch on every train and on
every avenue into the city. If the rob
bers try to come to this city they will
more than likely he nabbed.
The J. (!. White Construction Com
pany is building the dam tit Parr
Shoals, which is about twenty-two
miles from this city, on Broad River,
between Fuirflold and Newberry coun
ties. The station at Parr Shoals is lo
catod on the Falrflold side of the
stream and the robbers are supposed to
bo heading towards Union on that side.
The $10,008.11 was In the possession
of the employees of the construction
Company when seemed by Ihe robbers,
the express company having turned it
ovor to them at Parr Shoals and secur
ed their receipt for it.
Fred Bulltman, assistant cashier of
the company, is a son of Lucius M.
Bulltman, of Columbia. His father en
deavored to communicate with his son
tonight, but was informed that he
w s a member of the searching par
tics, a long distance telephone mes
sage? from Newberry tonight said noth
ing bad been heard on that side of
the river of the robbers.
The White Construction Company
has offered a reward of $('?00 for the
capturo of the three bandits.
