The circumstances which led to his
last arrest and Cunt)n-,ment in the

On the omul of July 16, 1893, the
east bound Fiico train was held up
at Andover and the passengers robbed
o! their money t) the amount of sev
eral hundred d niars, by two masked
men, who later proved to be Sam
Smith and Tom Wind, n half breed
Indian. Tne men Brt .nbted the
station agent, S. B. McClaren, and
then at the pomt of their Winchesters
compelled him to flag the train. At
the time of tne hold up the station,
save for the agent, waft deserted as
most of the people were attendiog an
ice cream social la the village. The
men purchased & ticket for Augusta
as a ruse to get into the station safe.
Here they secured $lo in currency nj
a number of indorsed check. As the
train approached they compelled Mc
Claren to signal it, and, be being
covered with gun", at occe obeyed.
They forced the agent up to the en
gine and held Mai .there until tber
had the engineer gnd fireman covered
with their guns. The fireman was
compelled to go with on? of the
robbers to the express car, while the
engineer was being guarded by the
other. Meanwhile the agen; mac-'
