Special Dispatches to The Morning Call.
Kansas Crrr, Aug. 17.— The Pacific Ex
press Company lost 590,000 by a train rob
bery on the Missouri Pacific Railway early
this morning. It if, ah the Kansas City
limited, that} fell into the hands of the ban
aits. The train.was crowded with passen
gers, and the safe of the Express Company
was stuffed with money consigned— much
of it— to Western banks. The train left
Tipton, M. about 3 o'clock'.in the morning.
Two mysterious and suspicious appearing
ligures weie seen by the engineer lurking
aronnd the forward end of the train, but
no particular attention was paid to them.
Just after leaving Tipton the fireman
went toward the tender to fire up, and
looked square Into the muzzle of two re
volvers in the hands of two masked men.
They bad evidently boarded the forward
platform of the "blind" mail car at Tipton,
and were crawling over the tender toward
COVERED BY REVOLVERS.
One of ihe bandits covered the fireman
with his revolver, while the other took care
ol the engineer, They were told to holdup
their bands. "Now you run this train to
the Otterville water tank," ordered the
leader, "end step there. II you attempt to
stop at any other place, or give a signal of
alarm, you'll be a dead man," ami the rob
bers laced their weapons close to the
heads of their victims, The engineer an.l
fireman were at the bandits' mercy, and

STOri'KD THE TRAIN.
• When Robber's Cut was reached the en
gineer stopped the train. "Yon come with
me," the leader addressed the engineer,
"and you tend to the fireman," he said to
his companion. The engineer was com
manded to go to the express-ear and tell the
messenger to open the door. When he
reached the express-car he found the two
robbers had five confederates stationed at
convenient places about the car. All were
heavily armed and their faces were con
cealed behind masks. He went to the door
of the ear, and, "covered" by the re
volvers of three of the robbers," called to
the express messenger, Sam A. Avery, to
opeu the door. Avery, suspecting no dan
ger, pushed back the door. As he did so
the Isader of the robbers' and one of his
confederates pushed their revolvers in and
ordered the messenger to hold up his
hands. The order was promptly obeyed
wi-d- the three rubbers jumped into the car.
THE SAFE OPENED.
They proceeded immediately to the safe,
which whs locked. Avery was commanded
to open it at the point of a revolver and did
so. One of the robbers unfolded a gunny
sac!: and into it placed the entire contents
of the safe. In the meantime the conduc
tor, alarmed at the unusual stopping of the
tram went forward to see what was the
trouble. He got only as far as the rear end
of the express ear. when he was stopped by
one of the robbers, who told him to go back
and collect tickets. The conductor hurried
back to the first passenger coach ana excit
edly informed the passengers what was go
ing on, an.l ordered theru to hide their val
uables, money, watches, jewelry.and every
thing valuable was shoved into boot tops,
cracks of the cushioned seats and anywhere
to get it out of sight. Tlie conductor had
just warned the passengers in the second
car when the train started again.
I SCAPE OF THK BOBBEBS.
The robbers had finished their work and
escaped. The engineer pulled the train
Into Otterville, where men were left to
arouse the Sheriff and organize a pos-e to
pursue the robbers. The robbers had left
their tracks in the mud. These were fol
lowed for some distance east and finally
lost. The Sheriff's posse and detectives
are scouring the- country for the robbers,
and, considering tbeir start, nope to cap
ture some of them at least.
. NINETY THOUSAND DOLLARS* WOETH.
The exact amount of money and valuables
stolen cannot be learned, The agent of the
expiess company here will Bay absolutely
nothing about the occurrence except to give
the story of the robbery. From other
sources it was learned that the money in the
Eafe aggregated about 575,000 arid that
other valuable property amounted to about
$15,000. • ■ .
Eeso'utioits Adrp'ed by the Faim-ri' and Lib-
or;r«' Unicn of Missouri.
Sedai.ia (Mo.), Aug. 17.— The last day's
proceedings of the Farmers' and Laborers'
Union did not end until 4:30 o'clock this
morning. There was a protracted fight
over the report of the Committee on Reso
li nd. The resolutions adopted declared
that alien ownership of land shall he fore
ever prohibited; that all money shall be
issued and its volume controlled by the
National Government; demanded the
free and unlimited coinage of silver; that
the national banking system be abolished;
that option dealing or gambling in agricul
tural and mercantile productions be pro
hibited by law ; that the civil service laws
be enforced in all the departments of
the National and State Governments;
that the Government shall have the
ownership and control of railroad
and telegraph lines; and that the
Australian system of voting be extended
to all voting precincts in the State. On
the tariff question the resolutions are
strictly in line with the policy of the
Democratic part}-. The taiiff piank is as
follows: "Believing our Government is
founded on the idea that all men
shall enjoy anZ.. equal chance in
the race of life, and that no taxes
be collected directly or indirectly from the
people, except what are necessary to carry
on the Government, economically _ and
honestly administered, and demand such
a revision of the laws as will lay
the heaviest burdens on luxuries and the
lightest on the - necessities of • life,
and that all tariffs be gradually reduced."
The resolutions conclude with this declar
ation: "We will not support any man fur
a "legislative office ol any political party who
will not pledge himself iv writing to use his

Alleged Excessive Asscs--m-nt.
New York. Aug. 17.— Judge Beach of the
Supreme Court, on the application of M.
Gernsheim & Co., has issued an order to
show cause why an injunction should uot
be issued against the Central Trust Com
pany, C. P. Huntington, the Southern Pa
cific Company and others, to restrain the
Issue of $10,000,000 stock of the reorganized
Houston and Texas Central Kailroad Com
pany, for the reason that an assessment of
$01 40 per share made by the Central Trust
Company was unauthorized and excessive.
It is charged in the complaint that the as
sessment was unnecessarily exorbitant and
made prohibitory, so as to commit the stock
of the new company to be turned over to
the Southern Pacific Company, controlled
by Huntington, and that in the assessment
there is improperly included alleged

CONGRESSMEN AT LARGE.
Washington Comments on the Action ol
the Republican State Convention.
Washington. Aug. 17.— The action of
the California Republican Convention in
nominating Congressmen-at-large has oc
casioned no end of comment here. This is
the first case of its kind that has happened,
but census officers say that they were not
surprised, but looked for such an action
from some of the States. The same thing
has happened in every census for years past.
It is the almost unanimous opinion
that the apportionment act will not
pass before adjournment, therefore the
different States will not secure representa
tives at the coming Congressional elections
in November. Tho different States hold
their elections at different times, some in
September, some in October and others in
November; but no elections for Congress
men occur later than November, except in
the case of a vacancy occasioned by death,
resignation or impeachment. However, it
would be possible for Congress to pass a
special act for the election of additional
representatives from the different States
warranted by the census on the basis of
173,000 inhabitants to each district.
An amusing fact in connection with the
nominations of California Congressnien-at
large is this: Mr. Morrow does not th
the convention for extending to him what
he regards a doubtful compliment, and is
rather inclined to consider the action of the
convention as an indignity and calculated
to belittle him in the estimation of his
friends and colleagues, while, on the other
hand Mr. Vandever is inclined to be dis
gruntled because the representative from
Southern California was not Complimented
in a like manner.
Trying to F oat a Corean Loin.
Washington, Aug. 17.— The Chinese
Minister in this city has received Informa

deems it his duty to make public the fact
that the negotiation of stteha loan at this
time is not approved by the Chinese Gov
ernment, to which that if Co: en, he says,
is tributary. Corea, he says, is a poor
country with small resources, nd is nut in
a condition to pledge any of its revenues as
security for a foreign loan. It is already
indebted to the Chinese Government in a
considerable ami. advanced to its King
a number of years ago. The Minister says:
The Chinese Government would not allow
the customs or any other revenue of Corea
to be appropriated for a foreign loan so
long as its own indebtedness is unliqui

Marked by Bloodshed.
Fifteen Detectives and Five Citizens Under

Special Dispatches to Tub Moit-viso Call.
Ai.baxt, Aug. 17.— A most disastrous
day In the history of the New Tork Cen
tral strike closes to-night. Fifteen Pinker
ton men are under the care of surgeons and
five citizens are so badly wounded that
there are fears for their recovery. Three
Finkerton men were arrested and one was
so severely handled by a mob that the
Police Surgeon had to dress his wounds.
Nearly all the Pinkerton men were with
drawn to-day from duty at the crossings
within the city limits, as their presence
! serves to excite a throng of onlookers, and
the police took their places.
riXKERTO' MEN ATTACKED BT EOUGII3.
About 1 o'clock J. Patton, a Pinkerton
nian, was patrolling the tracks in the vicin
ity of Van Woert street. lie claims to have
been struck with a stone in the chest,
while his companion was severely hurt by
a gang of roughs. Then he fired his re
volver into the crowd, seriously wounding
Fiicliaril Dwyer, aged 15. Fatten had no
timo to fire another shot, as the crowd
surged around him, and before the police
could interfere his clothes were torn off his
back. lie was struck with fists and clubs
and presented a. pitiable spectacle when
rescued from the angry crowd by the police,
who were obliged to draw their revolvers
to stem the crowding mass of people. This
occurrence aroused the passions of the
spectators, mostly roughs and hoodlums,
their number increased and the Chief of
Police, fearing further trouble, established
his headquarters in the station-house near
About 3 o'clock a freight train passed
through the city, and the Fiukertons say it
was stoned. The police claim that such was
not the case. At any event, when the train
reached the Broadway Viaduct the Pinker
ertons began a reckless fusilade en the
crowd standing in the vicinity. Four or
five shots were fired without any provoca
tion. Mrs. Thomas llogan, standing on the
stoop of her residence, was shot through
the leg and a small boy was shot in the
thigh. The crowd by this time was wrought
up to a fearful pitch of excitement, and
only by the efficiency of tho local police,
aided by a committee from the strikers, were
they Kept back.
PIXKERTOX WILL STAND BT BIS MEN.
After this incident Itobert Finkerton
who had charge of his forces here in per
son, called on Chief Wlllard. He said his
men had been assaulted continually and
firearms had been put iv their possession
only yesterday, that they might bo used
when necessary In self-defense and In the
work of protecting the company's property.
He was sorry innoceut parties had suffered,
and added that it generally happened that
way. Still he would stand by his men
against the wanton attacks of roughs.
Chief Wiiiard expressed his belief
that If the Pinkerton men had never
been brought here the local police
would have been abundantly able to
cope with the situation. As it is he fears
there will be further trouble if these men
stay Here, and says in that event the local
authorities could not be held responsible, as
he had repeatedly informed Superintendent
Bissell that the company's property would
be well guarded by his own men. if un other
forces were brought here to inflame the
passions of the sympathizers of the strikers.
At 4 o'clock another freight train came
through and the Piukerton men again fired
iuto ttie crowd, a boy named Frank Parks
receiving a bullet in the arm. The Pinker
ton man who fired into the crowd at Van
Woert street crossing was pursued up the
tracks by police (Beers and captured. As
the policemen were bringing the prisoner
back he was assaulted by a crowd of Pink
erton men, who rescued the prisoner and
severely beat the officers. Ail the police
are massed at this point and trouble is ex
pected to-nicht. The blockade at West
Albany is almost as bad as on the first day
of the strike.
MOVEMENT OF TRAINS.
New York, Aug. 17.— A1l the regular
passenger (rains on the New Tork Central
ran on schedule time to-day. Incoming
trains also came in without any delay. No
freight-trains were sent out to-day, but rail
road officials say they will be run regularly
to-morrow. A reporter called ou Vice-
President Webb to-day, and asked
him if he had any idea as to what
the result of his interview with Powderly
to-uiorrow|wouldbe: "Yes, I think 1 have,"
answered Webb, with a smile of much
meaning. "I think that Powderly will call
here to-morrow and submit his demands,
which will be refused, and then I think he
will .nil the strike off. and decide to sacri
fice the members of his order on this branch
rather thun involve the whole order in a
fight on the entire system, which, in the
end, would be sure to be disastrous."

Cadwallader of Chicago. This writer says
he has been acquainted with the California

"Why, if French prunes are superior, do
such houses as Austin, Nicholas & Co. and
many other large houses of your city handle
such large quantities of the California ar
ticle? Austin, Nicholas & Co. handled last
year about IN.OOO to 20,000 boxes of one

CAPTAIN JOE'S SHARK STORY.
An Adventure Wllb Geuuine M air- I 1 1 • . -
in the Gulf Stream.
Captain Joe Holland is one of the vet
ans of Lake Worth, Florida, and here is
his latest foiling adventure while on bis
last trip from the Bermudas a few weeks
ago. The captain's pel boat is a small
sloop, and his crew consis ts cf himself and
a stalwart mulatto and a pet monkey. The
latter had bet., taught to haul ropes and do
many other things of that kind. When out
from the islands on their last trip and in
the Gulf Stream they encountered a school
of sharks. The captain, it appears, tried
every way to get rid of his unwelcome fol
lowers, but ol no avail, as they clung
closer than a debtor, and night or day their
ugly-looking fins and shovel-shaped noses
were clearly visible close by.
While proceeding along uuder easy soil
the captain begun practicing on the shaiks
with his rifle, while Emanuel, the mulatto,
tried his skill with au old fish harpoon.
'Hie captain finally wounded one and the
whole school turned on it as its blood be
gan to flow, and a terrible commotion be
gan neai the vessel. To add to the con
fusion Emanuel struck a big one. too, and
its frantic struggles, coupled with the
streams of blood which flowed from IB
wounds, soon brought up all the man-eaters
within a mile, as the captain said. The
huge ugly creatures plunged around abi 'it
the vessel striking ut the wounded ones and
taking great pieces out of their sides. The
light grew furious, tne sharks jumping put
ot the water and rushing at each other w in
wide-open mouths armed with such ugly
looking sets of teeth, as the captain says
fairly made his blood run cold. In all ovw
forty big sharks were engaged in the scrim
mage, end the commotion they caused was
'ihe captain and Emanuel both feared
that this ught would do them damage, as
eveiy once in a while a resounding thud on
the boat's bottom would show that the rav
enous creatures cared little fur such a ves
sel as theirs. All of a sudden a big fifteen
foot wounded shark rose a short distance
off, with another, double his size, in pur
suit. He rushed on, and in a jiffy had
sprung right into the boat, and the other
followed. It is hard to say who was the
must surprised, the sharks or the captain
and his crew. The monkey tlew up the
mast, chattering with fright, while Eman
uel sought safety on the bowsprit ami the
captain jumped into the cabin. The t■ , t
big fish floundered around in the bout, t/i*.
--sides being just high enough to prevent
their getting over again, The boat rocked
to and fro frightfully as the huge sharks
kicked about, and Captain Joe says be ex
pected to go to Davy Jones' locker at any
moment The sharks both lay with their
heads toward the bow and their tails near
the cabin door.
- Venturing forth after a while the captain
seized an ax and, standing near the door,
he brought it down with all his strength
upon the tail of the big fellow. The effect
was electrical. Up went the flukes with a
tremendous whisk, and, while the ax went
out to sea a dozen rods, the captain was
whirled backward into the ocean, just catch
ing tlio rudder post as he full— Emanuel
thought that the captain had gone for good
and he halloed outright in his fright. The
captain's voice, somewhat choked with sea
water, reassured him, and tiie brave fellow
ran nimbly down the side of the boat, jump
ing over one of the sharks and, on reaching
the stern, helped the captain up from his
perilous posit. on.
After the skipper had recovered they
started for the sharks again. With an adze
and the rifle active waifare was begun.
Blow after blow was landed on the tough
hides of the plunging monsters, while they
thrashed about iv the must lively manner,
the little boat creaking in every timber
from the shock. Finally Jocko came run
ning down the shrouds to lake a hand in
the fight. lie picked un a belayiug-plu,
and, creeping up to one of the sharks,
brought It dowu with stunning effect on
the man-eater's head. The huge fish
jumped fur it with wide open month, but
the nimble monkey jumped out of the way
and came hack with another blow. Not
withstanding their serious predicament,
the captain and his ally could hardly keep
trom laughing at the spectacle. But the
most serious part of the fight was now over,
and the vicious-looking sea-tigers lay gasp
ing out their lives as the men rained blows
All this while the monsters outside kept
up their infernal warfare on each other, and
the sea was blood-colored fur a considera
ble distance, Over a dozen bodies floated
to the surface, some half eaten aud others
with many gaping wottuds in their sides.
The two on deck were finally killed aud
they were thrown overboard. Tho deck
was slippery from their blood, and as
Emanuel stood by the gunwales a sudden
lurch threw him over. A hoarse cry and
in he went right among the sharks, now fu
rious with their bloody feast. The captain
rushed up and threw a rope, but Emanuel
was nowhere to be seen. boon a commo
tion was observed some twenty feet away,
aud his head emerged suddenly Irom the
water, and he shot up in sight riding astride
oue of the sharks.
Emanuel was blue with fright, but he
jabbed his squeer steed with his big knife
that he always had in his , belt, and the
vicious monster plunged forward, fortu
nately carrying him nearer the bout. Re
covering from his astonishment, the captain
Hung forward another rope, which, fortu
nately, Emanuel caught. Rising up on the
shark's back, Emanuel took the rope with a
firm grip and jumped for the boat. Several
of the monsters plunged at him as he fell
among them, hut by some strange good luck
they missed him, and the captain hauled
bim on board, one shark just nipping off a
bit of his heel as he was hauled over the
side. — Globe-Democrat

The Perple of Salvador Determined to Fight

City of Mexico, Auk. 17.— The most in
fluential and wealthy citizens of Salvador,
as well as the lower classes, have offered
their services and money to Ezeta to pros
ecute the j war . against Guatemala.
The people have become so tired
o' the yoke which Guatemala
bis forced upon Salvador and have decided
to (end all their support and make it warm
for their enemy. Troops are being massed
upon the frontier, and if the army of occu
pation of Salvador in Guatemala is not al
ready raoviug, it is probable that they will
be to-morrow, when a battle will be fought
in all probability.
According to the trade union of this city
Salvador, under the presidency of Zuldivar,
paid a tribute to the Guatemalan President
of $00,000 a year, which it is said, was
employed to increase the fortune
of that functionary, On tlie downfall of
Z.tldivar's Government. General Mendez
continued this disgraceful tribute to Bar
riilas. General Ezeta positively refused to
accede to the demand ot Barrillas for the
continued payment of this tribute, and war
was at once precipitated. Ezeta says Sal
vador is tired of submitting to the tyranny
ci* . G'icteinait., and her presumptuous de
mands must be stopped.
He Demands the Retirement of Ez>ta From
City of Mexico, Aug. 17.— Dispatches
from Guatemala say that President Baril
las yesterday received the members of
the diplomatic corps, who called to
ascertain his terms of peace. lie re
sponded that his only terms were
the retirement of Ezeta from the Govern
ment of Salvador and the re-establishment
of State affairs as existing prior to the death
of Meuendez, and that Salvador treat Hon
duras and Guatemala as allies and not fos
ter rebellion against either Government.
Governor Carracosa of Chiapas tele
graphs that the State forces have been
active in preventing the crossing of Mex
icans and Guatemalan refugees Into
Guatemala with revolutionary intent, but
that quite a number of Mexicans have
gone ti Salvador, where they are
offering their services against Guatemala.
President Diaz ordered the authorities on
the frontier to exercise the strictest vigi
lance and to preserve the neutrality to
ward Salvador. ■•
li is rumored that President Ezeta will
open hostilities to-morrow.
ATTITUDE OP HONDURAS.
Eeiscns for Placing Troops on the Sa'.vidcr
City of Mexico, Aug. 17.— The Hon
duras Secretary of Foreign Affairs, in a
note to General Ezeta, gives the following
reasons why his Government is placing
troops on the Honduras-Salvador frontier:
First — You called to arms and armed
Honduras refuges, inciting them to invade
Honduras because Honduras refused to
recognize the state of affairs brought on by
General Ezeta In Salvador on the night of
Second— The unjustified and illegal treat
ment accorded Hondurans by your Govern
ment, even to the shooting, by order of
Colonel Bramelr. of Calixo of Accosto, a
peaceable Houduran, at Sau Antonio Mo
reta, which was a flagrant violation of all
International right and law.
Third— Salvador suspended without right
or justice all cable communications be
tween Honduras and the United States and
Europe, to the detriment of her commerce
and industries. ' V, -J ■'.:-. •_;.
Fourth— Salvador ordered the suspension
of commercial, postal and telegraphic com
munication between Salvador and Hondu
ras. Those facts are the cause of the pres
ent attitude of Honduras, and uutil Salva

City of Mexico, Aug. 17.— Central Amer
ican affairs have undergone another change
within the past forty-eight hours, as sud
den as many ol the volcanic eruptions that
disturb these five republics. Where peace
was Saturday looked upon as a foregone
conclusion a war-cloud again, hangs over
Salvador and Guatemala, and perhaps as
this is being written ; a battle is being
fought. The armistice which has prevailed
between these two countries the last few
days, as if by mutual consent, is again to be
broken. The negotiations for peace which
were expected ! to be brought about by the
mediation of the Diplomatic Corps resident
in Guatemala have fallen to the ground and
the war will go on until either Salvador or
Guatemala becomes conquered. From pres
ent appearances other Central American
countries will be drawn into the contest
and eventually it will be Salvador, Costa
Rica and Nicaragua against Guatemala and
The 6alvadorian Army.
San Salvador, Aug. 17.— The army of
Salvador awaits developments and has or

GEN. GRANT'S REMAINS.
The (taction of Their Removal Left to the
Decision of Congress.
New York, August 17. — The Press'
Washington correspondent says: Con
gressman John Quinn to-day received from
U. S. Grant Jr. a reply to his letter to the
widow of General Grant, requesting that
she state her wishes regarding the proposed
removal of the great warrior's remains to
the Arlington National Cemetery. The
letter, which is dated Salem Center, West,
says "that at the time when Mrs.
Grant was with Colonel Grant he wrote a
letter for publication, with the intention of
saving her, if possible, from the affecting
annoyance of being interviewed by news
papers on the subject, in which he ex
pressed her views aud the views
of the family in regard to this
matter. In that letter Colonel Grant
said, in substance, that such a removal
rested with Congress, and not with General
Grant's family. If the people, by an act of
Congress, choose to remove General Grant's
remains to or near Washington, Mrs.
Grant will refuse her consent only in case
no provision be made for her family resting
by his side. This condition she wishes to
emphasize. She will be glad to see a monu
ment begun, at least, which will mark the
last resting place of her husband."
Programme of Business for the Remainder

Washington, Aug. 17.— The programme
of business for the rest of the session will
be determined in the Senate this week. If
the present understanding is carried out.
Quay will introduce his amended resolu
tion to-morrow, which, under the rules, it
Is expected will go over until Tuesday for
action. It will not be referred to the Com
mittee on Rules, but will be disposed of in
the Senate. When it comes up for con
sideration a motion will be made to include
the Federal Election Hill in the list of
measures that shall be considered after the
Tariff Bill is disposed of. This is expected
to precipitate a debate of some length, and
considerable bitterness between the two
wings of the Kepublican majority. Quay
and Aldrich, who is acting with him, be
lieve the resolution wiil be passed by a
good majority, with no amendments.
It is probable that to-morrow will be
"suspension day" in the House, and the
committees will be allowed to call up se

order the Committee on Education, if it be
reached in the call, will seek to pass the
Senate bill to extend additional aid to Agri

A Minority Seport 1-i.bmitted to the House
by Haves of lowa.
Washington-, Auc. 17.— Representative
Hayes of low a yesterday submitted to the
House a minority report, dissenting from
the views and recommendations of the
majority of the Committee on Postoffices
and Post-roads on the Anti-Lottery Hill.
Hayes says that the objections to the bill
are: First, that it is unconstitutional;
second, there is - no necessity for any such
legislation from the fact that we already
have sufficient law upon the subject and we
had better enforce lii.it law than make new
legislation ; tliiid, that provisions of the
bill are bad and even absolutely dangerous
in that its tendency is toward centraliza
tion and interference with the proper func
tions and powers of the States, It abridges
the freedom of the press, it gives the power
of espionage to public officials as against'
citizens, it provides for condemnation with
out a hearing and makes tiie whim, caprice
or opinion ol the Postmaster-General, good,
bad or indifferent, as it may be, the final
Judgment upon which the rights of citizens
may depend. It makes him in fact judge,
jury and executioner without the pretense
of a hearing or legal evidence and actually
gives this dangerous and vicious power
with nil its machinery enforcement to any
ether "scheme or device" that "upou evi
dence satisfactory to him" may not suit his
exalted ideas of propriety. He is, there
fore, constrained to dissent from the report
of the majority, although fully agreeing
with them in their abhorrence of the evil.

but finally caught the girl's hand aud took
the instrument of torture from her, throw

home. There they examined the boy's tide,
but could find nothing, and believing that

next morning the boy complained of in

unable to walk with any ease. At first his
aunt thought he was playing his part and
refused to allow him to remain in the
