A party of twenty-five tourists, among them Sen ator James Hrady of Idaho, was held up' by three robbers today in Yellow stone Park. As each stage rounded a sharp curve- the passengers were com pelled to stand in line and throw their valuables in a sack held by one of the bandits, who was armed. A second bandit took charge of the booty, aid a third stood fifty feet away guarding the entire line. As the third c oach was being robbed Mr. Itice of New York, in charge of the tourists, jumped out and started back to notify the passengers of the rear vehicles to hide their valuables. One! eif the highwaymen fired a shot and then realizing- that he had given the alarm they fled to the timber. Hearing the shot Senator Brady, who was riding behind went ahead to discover the cause. He met Rice. To reassure the tourists there were no farther danger. Senator Brady rode the rest of the way on the driver's seat of the leading coach. The scene of the holdup was a heavily wooded section, where there are numberless peaks and bluffs. The coaches were strung out a mile. The bandits did not rob the first, but at tacked the victims from the center line. They made the passengers de posit their money -and valuables in a sack. The coaches were on a narrow road. Those near were un aware of the robbery of the front coaches.

With four men arrested for alleged complicity in the murder of a wealthy stockman and his son at Siam, Iowa, in September, ixr,. and arrangements made for the protection of the state's chief wit nesses, representatives of the attor ney general stated they are prepared for the next phase of Taylor coun ty's double murder and buried trea sure case, which comes up Tuesday with preliminary hearings of the de fendants. Hates Huntsman, Samuel Scrivner and Henry and John Dame w c.od. A. Kobbins, a.-sistant attorney general, has gone to Des Moines for a conference with Attorney General Cosson, after he had made arrange ments to insure the appearance of Mrs. Maria I'orter of Quitman, Mis souri at the hearing. She, when four teen years old, is said to have wit nessed the killing of a cattleman, who is believed to have been Nathaniel Smith of St. Joseph and his son, and the subsequent burial of $90,Oa0 on the Collins farm, near Siam. Scrivner, the wealthiest of the de fendants, chacterized the whole pro ceedings as a "huge joke." Dame wood, notwithstanding he has de clined to treat the matter seriously, announced he wished to retain the best lawyers in the county. Another version of the treasure Rtory came to light when old resi dents said the money was buried on the farm by the. James boys after they had robbed a bank. This is said to account for their interest in locating it after years. The loss of a plat in a fire which burned a farm house and the death of Jonathan Dark, the only member of the gang who knew where the treasure was buried, is said to have made neces sary the search which lasted for many years. were to have luncheon. The military officers at Mammoth Hot Springs did not receive word of the holdup until 1:30 o'clock, at least four hours after the holdup. The scene of the holdup was close to the spot where 125 passengers and twenty-five coaches were robbed on July 29, 1914, of a sum estimated at $3000. A lone bandit carried out that robbery.

Up AN ACHIEVEMENT MOST liEMARKABLE It is Expected That Terri tory Tims Taken, Somo Three Thousand Spiato Miles, "Will Be Annexed to Dominion associated press dispatch 1 LONDON, July 9. The complete, surrender of the German forces in German Southwest Africa; French successes in the Vosges, where tlu-y made an advance of Toy yards on a front of 00 yards and captured f0') unwounded Germans, and the splen did stand of the Russians in Southern Poland, give the IJritish military critics subject for comment on what they term the "turn in the tide" of the war which is fast approaching its first anniversary. General Botha's victory with the Germans cut off from the rest ol the world was a foregone conclusion. nd the fact that he won after five months of warfare, despite the rebel lion in his own country, and under many natural Olsaa vantages is con sidered by military observers to have been a memorable achievment. To gain the victory Botha's force. had to march in a blistering h'-at through an almost waterless country, in which the few wells had boeu poisoned and where sandstorms mad-; it necessary for the soldiers to wear goggles. With rapid sweeping strokes, Bo tha worked around the Germans who we-re forced to surrender, or suffi r annihilation and thus prevented them from breaking into parties and wag ing guerilla warfare. ll is expected this territory, some 300u square miles, will he annexed to the Ivmiin ion of South Africa. In parts of this country, particularly about Luederin Bav- where there are valuable elia mond mines. Botha is sending the citizen army home and will commence immediately the organization of a contingent army to assist Kurope. Announcements of Austrian and G. r man officials that there is no c hange in the situation is taken to mean that the Germanic armies have not recovered from the defeat which the Russians in flicted north of Krasnik. where the Austrian are operating in conjunction with General Van Mackensen. It is not certain whether Grand Duke Ni cholas, commander of the Russians, in tends to make a final stand on the) present line or fall back to the river Bug, which might involve the evacua tion of Warsaw. Military men say thi doubtless depends on his supplies of munitions which are reaching him through Archangel and which the Ger man submarines are trying t cut off. A submarine today sunk the Hull steamer Guide, bound for a Russian port, but she was only loaded with coal. The submarine also sunk the Russian bark Anna, which was also bound for Archangel from Hull. Severe fighting continues at several points on the western front. The Brit ish report the repulse of all German counter-attacks that were made in tho effort to regain the lost trenches north of Ypres and state that the British gain has been extended and that the German losses are severe. On the other hand the Germans claim the repulse of Frnch attacks at Souchez and assert the Teutonic troops made further progress in the Woevre region when they captured some trenches with 2.",o prisoners. The French victory in the Vosges appears to he the most import ant that has occurred on the western front for pome months. . The Turks continued their attacks on the Gallipoli peninsula and regained some trenches, according to German correspondents. They have made their appearance in the vicinity of Aden, the British free port in southwest Arabia, (Continued on Page Six) f Joseph Bley, customs broker, and John B. Hoyt of Swayne and Hoyt.
