HOLD UP YOUR HANDS.,
Some Interesting Information About the Gentle Art of Stage Robbing. It a Man Understands the Business it Is Seldom Necessary to Fire a Shot, Different Methods Employed--Ceemes to Protect the Express hlox and Others to Thwart Them. In 1881 the stage road between Benson and Tombstone was a bad route to travel by night or by day, says the San Francisco Examiner. Bsenson was inhabited mostly by rustlers and toughs, and Tombstone was infested by Do0 Holladay and other people of that sort. The Earps managed to hold things level in Tombstone, but the road agents bossed the highway, and in Benson a man was liable to be held up at noon on the depot platform while waiting for a train. Budd Philpot, brother-in-law of Charlie Foss. the king of stage drivers, was driving the Blenson and 'Jombstone stage, and one night somebody tried to hold him up not many miles from Tombstone. Phil pot had had experience with road agents, and when he heard the order to halt come from the darkness a little behind the off forewheel, he concluded thatrthe robber was a green hand at the business, and instead of putting on the brake he gave his horses the sill and sent them ahead on the run. In nine cases out of ten the trick would have won, as the robber would have thought it hardly worth while to fire at a rapidly es caping stage, and the darkness would have spoiled his aim if he did fire. But the crack of Philpot's lash was answered by the crack of a Winchester, and Philpot -half sprung to his feet, dropped back with a moan and swayed in his seat. The messenger, who sat beside him, threw his right arm around the driver and with his left seized the lines as they fell from Philpot's relaxed fingers. The Winchester cracked again and again, and a cry frdm the inside of the coach told that one of the passengers had been hit. The frightened horses flew over the road. The messenger held the dying driver with one arm, and with the left hand tried to ar range the tangled lines, while the bullets flew by in the dark. He got the stage into Tombstone with the express box safe, but two dead men were taken from the coach. That was not the work of a professional road agent. The main purpose of the rob ber is to secure plunder, and if he does any killing it is either to prevent somebody from killing him or to insure the success of the robbery. The attack upon the Tomb stone stage was the work of a man-killer, who had turned road agent for one night only, and for that and other good reasons the job was generally attributed to Doo Holladay, a man who left a trail of blood across every state and territory between the Mississippi and the Sierras. A man who understands the art of high way robbery can hold up any stage without firing a shot, unless a fighting shotgun mes senger happens to be on the box, in which case he may get into trouble and miss the trick. The expert professional ahever fools with a stage on open ground or a steep down grade. He selects his ground with care and judgment, choosing a place where the stage must be driven slowly. and taking such a position that he cannot be seen until he has the driver covered with his shotgun. He uses a shotgun rather than the rifle or re volver, because the shotgun is the most for midable weapon at short range, its capa city for scattering fire, being. well known and duly respecte. by drivers. The bigger the bore of the gun the more terrifying it is to passengers, although it is a singular fact that under such circum atances a 22-calibre rifle barrel is likely to be mistaken for the mouth of the hutro be mistaken for the mouth of the hutro tunnel. On the line of every old stage road in California is pointed out some spot that is a favorite stand for robbers. It is us nally in a sharp re-entering angle, where the horses must be brought down to a walk and the rooky bank or a tree affords a hid ing place for the robber. It does not matter if the driver knows that he is liable to be held up at that spot and is on the alert. le can not make the turn at high speed, and he must give his attention to his team to avoid on ul.set. Just as the oach swings into the gully and the driver is about to rein the leaders out from the bank, he hears the sharp command to halt, and without turn ing to see, he knows that a shotgun is pointed at his head from behind the tree. The stagse driver, being commonly a man of sense and good judgment, puts on the brake and stops instantly. "Throw down the box!" is the next order. and the driver tosses out the express box. 8ometimes the man behind the tree wants the mail sacks, too, and if he is very greedy and hold lie orders the passengers to junup out and empty their pockets. Usually tre passenge a tumble over one another in their haste to obey the orders of the man with the gun, and hei makes a good haul of watches and loose change. If the robber is alone nobody need lose much wealth in a hold-up, however. The robber will not throw himself off guard to search the rockets of a lot of passengers. It is his business to keep them covered with his gun, and he depoends upon their terror to induce them to give up what he would not search for. It requires an artistic op erator and one with supreme audacity to go through a whole stage-load of people and clean them out to the ultimate nickel, but California can proudly boast of having pro duced such artists. One way of doing the trick is to pretend that another robber is concealed inl the brush close at hand. "J im, you keep t heso galoot a covered while I no through 'em," remarks the road agent, in a cool, matter-of-fact way, after he has ranged the frightened passengers in a row with their hands above their heads. And then he goes through their pockets without undue haste, making f: cetious remarks as he brings up the plunder. The lone Ilighwan man of Shasta, whowas captured recently, had a very neat method of taking care of passengers when they were numerous enough to be troublesome. His ontfit consisted of a six-shooter and a bundle of barley sacks. He stopped the inward-bound stage within the town limits of Redding and put a barley sack over the bonead of every man in the crowd. Just as be finished that part of the job the out ward-bound stalue drove up, and he stopped that and bngred the heads of all hands. Then a farmer happened along, and be was treated similarly. A citizen of leddiing. driving for a doctor, fell into the trap and joined the barley-sack brigade, and then came thile schoolmarm of the dts trict, who Has told to stop and sit still in her buggy, which sheo did. The lone robber explored the pockets of the crowd, broke open the express boxes anll quietly slipped sway into the woods, and the bagged vio timns didn't dase to move until the school. marm began to laugh at their ridiculous aspect and told them that the robber had gone. In the hands of a road agent entirely great a fence picket is as mighty as a two shot scatter gun. 'The Gilroy stage was toiling up a long hill at dusk some years ago when the driver saw something white fluttering just ahead, and his leaders stopped with their breasts against a rope streohed across the road. A handkerchief was flut tering from the center of the rope. The driver put on the brake, and then somebody standing by a tree at the side of the road told him to throw down the box. He glanced toward the person who spoke and ea* a masked man pointing something at him. He threw down the box, the masked man out the rope and told him to drive on, and the stage went on its way. The next day the officers found the broken express box, the rope and an old fence picket In the road, but they never found the masked man. The express box is the main attraction for lhe road agent, and sometimes It isan afio tion to his soul, In the natural order of things it ought to oontain wealth, but the heartless express omiparnies sometimes load it with brieks and cause great loss of time and anguqih of spirit to an industrious and painstaking robber. When robberies were the eule and safe trips the exeption in 'Cal irorela, the express companies invented the dammybox and worked It off frequently on the nterpri ing agent, but the joke didn't last long. The agent acquired the habit of bursting the box in the presence of the driver and then profanely requesting him to hand out the other box and no blanked foolishness. As the t rivers weren't hired to' be shot, they discouraged the use of the daunmy box and it was abandoned by all well-regulated lines, although it was worked in occasionally on some amateur robber. When Budd Philpot was driving the Lake port stage a robber held him up and Bnudd cheerily tossed out an empty box belonging to the Great Western mine and drove along with Wells-Fargo's box safely stowed under his feet. The scheme of building an iron box into the body of the pouch worked for a time, but the road agents Lent thatgan'e by seond ing the driver and passengers along the road afoot and breaking into the box at their leisure with cold chisels. As they usually concluded the evening's entertain ment by setting fire to the coach and burn ing up $1,000 ýorth of the company's prop arty, besides r.lning away with the horses, the stage men concluded that the iron box scheme didn't pay. Going through the mail sacks used to be a tedious job for a road agent, and it didn't often pay for the time wasted. Beside it doubled the number of pursuers by setting all the United States nma shals on the hunt for the robber, and when caught it landed him in the United States court and insured a heavy sentence, Nevertheless, a great deal of money is sent by mail, and for the convenience of road agents and other thieves who may desire to take the chance of being caught, Uncle tam invented the registered letter and its especial pouch. No other reason for the invention of the regis tered letter system can be imagined. A reg istered letter is not insured, and Uncle Sam will not pay for it if it is lost or stolen. The registered mail is put into a little pouch, which is put inside of the ordinary mail sack. When the road agent gets hold of a mail sack he rips it open, either by running his knife around the sack near the bottom and thus cutting the bottom off at one sweep, or by making two slashes, cries cross in one side of the sack. Thanks to Uncle Fam's kind consideration and foresight, he isn't obliged to ransack a thousand letters. but finds all the valuable mail sorted out and neatly done up in an easily portable pouch, which he takes along to open at his leisure in the brush. Of all the devices and inventions for the protection of treasure and the cironmvon tion of the road agent, the only one that has stood the test of time and experience is a big, ugly-tempered man with a sawed-off shotgun on the box. Of course, when the other follow has the drop, a shotgun isn't of any more use than a piece of lead pipe: but the lone road agent can't watch a lot of passengers and a driver and at the same time keep the drop on a man who has been hired to shoot him full of holes and only wants half a chance to do it. If the robber gets the drop on the messenger and keeps it, and contents himself with ordering the driver to throw out the box, he may win; but it is the business of the man with the sawed-off shotgun not to let him get the drop, but to blaze away as soon as he shows up. 'Ihe gun is sawed off for the greater convenience of the messenger in potting road agents. It is loaded with buck shot and scatters like a charge of bribery fired into a California legislature. The length of the gun is such that when the muzzle rests upon the footboard the locks are level with the messenger's knee, and he can swing it up into position very readily. If he gets it pointed anywhere near the rob ber some of the buckshot are sure to hit him. An old Nevada driver's modification of the messenger's gun was a single-barrel shotgun worn in his right boot, the muzzle protrading through the bottom near the heel. When held up he stuck out his leg towards the robber, as if he were feeling for the brake, and pulled the trigger. But one hand was required to work the gun, and the effect was something in the line of painful surprise.
