STOPPED TRAIN WITH DYNAMITE Compelled Train Crew to Carry Gold and Bullion Out of Express Car . Shot Conductor In Hand. Lewiston, Pa., 'Sept 1. One ot the most audacious and startling hold ups ot a railroad train In the east for yeara occurred on the eastern slope of the Allegheny mountains. A lone high wayman stopped a Pennsylvania rail road express train with a dynamite cartridge and at the point of a re volver compelled tht orew to carry thousands ot dollars In coin and bul lion from an express car to a spot in the wilderness. When the conductor of the train attempted to Jnterfere with the robber s plans be was snot in the hand and the bandit succeeded In making good his escape. In the dark ness, however, he mistook a bag con talnlng 10,000 new Lincsln pennies tor gold coin and staggered away with It leaving the real gold bullion 1,0 be re covered by the railroaders. When the news of the robbery reached the railroad and express com pany officials they - immediately or dered every available detective from the east and west to the scene In an effort to capture the bandit. Blood hounds were also put on his track but up to a late hour no trace ot the man had been found. Tbe looted train was running through Lewistown narrows a wild and lonely mountain gorge through which flows the Juniata river, when suddenly a dynamite cap exploded and the engine driver brought tbe train to a standstill. When he looked to see what the trouble was he was con fronted by a masked figure holding a revolver in either hand. "Are there any mail cars on this train?" demanded the highwayman, "No," waa the reply of the starUed engineer. The engine crew was then forced at the point of the gun to accompany the robber to the first express car, where the messenger was looking out to dis cover the cause of the sudden stopping of the train. , 1 A revolver was pointed at the mes senger's head and threatening to blow up the car with dynamite the robber forced the messengers ot the two ex press cars and engine crew to carry all the gold and bullion Stacked In the first car to the side of the tracks. Conductor I. R. Poflenberger, of Harrisburg, Pa., who came up while this work was being accomplished was ordered back by the bandit who emptied one ot his revolvers at him, one of the shots penetrating nis nana and the other grazing his body. Despite the appearance of three pas sengers who had been awakened by the shooting, the robber calmly or dered the crew back on the train and compelled them to steam away, leav ing the bullion beside the track. It was recovered later by a posse sent on a special train. When the train was leaving, he called out: 'Good bye and good luck; I hope to see you again." It waa renorted that In addition to the missing pennies several thousand dollars tn currency was missing but the express company officials refuse to announce the' exact amount ot their loss. Nn clew to the robbers Identity has yet been discovered. He la described as being about live feet eight inches in height and was dressed in dark cloth ing and wore a slouch nat pulled well down over his eyes. He used ex cellent English but had a slight foreign accent Asent Hamaker of Lewistown, sent a aafa to the scene of the robbery to receive six baga of pennies on which the seals had not been broken but which had been cut open with a sharp knfe to ascertain the contents and abandoned by the robber in disgust Rain Fell In Oklahoma. nviahnma ctltT.
