Train Held Up.
Rkniiali.vili.e. JCnd.. Sept. 12.
The Lake Shore fc Michigan South
ern passenger train, No. l4,was held up
by a gang of robbers this morning, at
Kesler Hiding, Ave miles west of here.
The west switch was thrown, showing
a red light, and when Engineer Knapp
stopped his engine, he was flred upon
and bit lu the shouldol by a bullet from
a Winchester rifle. The robbers then
covered the train crew with rifles, and
after blowing open the door of the ex
press car, three of them entered, and
covering the express messengers, pro
ceeded coolly to blow open the safe.
It took five cartridges to accomplish
this. The robbers, after taking what
they wanted, departed. The train was
held about an hour. Engineer Knapp
will recover. The amount taken from
the safe is not known.
Engineer Knapp brought his train
here but was unable to go farther on
account of his wound. It is believed
he will recover. There were two safes
in the express car, one for through mat
ter, to which the messenger had no
key, and one for local matter. The
robbers compelled the messenger to
open all the safes, from which several
thousand dollars In currency were
taken,'tum blew open the bigsafe with
In the outer department there was a
quarter of a million dollars In gold,

Tbe train Is tbe heaviest for express
on the road, and frequently carries half
a million dollars. It la believed this
fact was known to tbe robbers.
When they left the train they went
In a southerly direction.
The point at which the robbery oc
curred, Is In a deep cut In the woods,
but all tbe country around is thickly
populated, with little timber, and it la
believed to be impossible for tbe robbers
to escape. Posses are out scouring the
country In search of them.
General Superintendent Crosby of
tbe United Btates express company de
clared the total loss to be less than
twenty tnousand dollar. He says the
robbers thought they were carrying
away bank notes, but secured mostly
paper, worthless to them, and that
Iihey overlooked f 16,000 worth o! gold
bullion. He emphatically denied tbe
report inai iiop ww -says
only five or six men are coacernrd
In tbe robbery.
President Newell, of the Lake Shore
this afternoon offered a reward of
thousand dollars for the capture and
conviction of the robbers.

both metals, but insist that one shall
go at parity with the other, and both be
equal In Intrinsic value."
He declared that the trouble was not
a lack of money, but taking money out
of circulation through distrust. Con
