The senatorial committee on educa tion and labor are engaged in hearing evidence upon the existing dilllcuities between telegraphic employers and enilpoyes. The ieading members ot the telegraphers' brotherhood, of the Knights of Labor society, and of the telegraph companies will tell their stories, and it is supposed that the Committee's printed report to congress of their investigation will occupy several hundred pages. How Koad-Ageuts do their Work. The Montana stage coach is rapidly yielding place to the railroad, and with its general disappearance the Montana road-agent will soon be so entirely out of a job that he will he a tiling unknown. In view of the fact we place before our read ers an extract from the New North-West describing the modus operandi practiced by the three men, now in jail, who robbed the Helena and Deer Lodge coach a few days ago. It reads like a chapter from Paul Clifford. "Just as the last turn to the right was made as the road emerges from tiie tim ber, a large gentleman with an enormous gun arose from a clump of bush from the left and ordered the driver to "hold up, sir!" Two more men with guns imme diately came in view at a distance of about" twenty feet and about ten feet apart, one with a double barrelled shot gun standing out, nnd the other, with Winchester rifle, partially concealed be hind a fallen tree. All the *uns were at full cock and a bright eye visible at the butt end of each. Davie deemed it ad visable to do as demanded. The coach stopped, the leader ordered the rifleman to cover the driver, then putting aside his gun he stepped up to the coach door with a brace of cocked revolvers, and with affable demeanor and in the most quiet aid deliberate manner imaginable told the m ile passengers to get out and form a line about ten feet from the coach with their hands up and facing the man with the shot gun, who kept them covered like a covey of quail. The passengers were all a.vake by this time. The ladies and chil . dren were poli tel y informed that they could remain seated ; the men tumbled out with alacrity. Davie was also ordered down but as he said the team would per haps run away if he got down, and the ladies crying, the leader said with a Chesterfieldian air : "All right; keep your seat, sir, aud keep your hands up." The leader then entered the coach and searched for valuables, but was not very well re warded. He took one liand-bag and was about to take another, when Mrs. Brad ley's little girl objected, saying: "That's mine.'" ''All right, little miss; you shall h ive it, if there's a thousand dollars in it," and back lie handed it without open ing. Going thence to the head of the line he began a deliberate and systematic 83arch. From cne man he got $75, and front others lesser amounts a 'gregating probably, about $100. l' rom GhO.Kobbiiis he took $2.05 in silver, and put it back in Iiobbius' pocket. Rob bins says he does not recollect asking for it, but probably did. He also took two watches and after examining them quick ly passed them back, saying as they were not of any value the owners could have tl}ejn. From another he took a gold ring, but on being told it was à family keep sake returned it. Thus he passed along the line, a cocked revolver in his left hand aud his right expertly running through pocket8 while he kept up a hu morons chat with his awkward and ein barrussed squad. Not a rough word was said, and the passengers say he was the coldest chap they ever saw. Once only did his temper ruffle. In returning Rob bins' silver watch, he slipped it in his coat pocket. Robbins, recollecting there was a hole in the pocket, thoughtlessly dropped liis right hand to get it, when quick as thought the robber straightened up and evidently seeingRobbins had made faux pas, softly said: "If you keep your hands up, gentlemen, there will be no shooting." The hands were kept up During tne progress of this search the man with the shot-gun, evidently the green one of the party and very nervous, said, "Hurry up. Mike." but Mike took his time, meanwhile bantering his victims oa their poverty and the inadequate re ward he was getting for hard work. The 8 larch did not satisfy him. He said,' "There ought to be more money in the party." He returned to the stage and again searched it. This time he took a g on and overcoat, and also found Mr. Fitinoyer's watch chain, worth perhaps $ i0. He also took Pennoyer's handbag and the latter telling him there was noth ing in it he wanted except a flask of whisky aud a box of cigars, "Mike" per mitted him to take the articles out for him aud returned the rest of the contents and the bag. But while engaged in the problem of "division and silence,* Mike observed that Pcnnoyer had on kid gloves and asked that they be removed. In doing so r little band of gold was ex p j»e.d. un the back of Pennoyer's finger. He attempted the family relic ruse, but Mike required him to turn the set, and as a fine diamond flashed in view he said, "Why, that's a regular shiner—a daisy— I'll trouble you for that," and he took it. He then gave Mr. Pênnoyer a drink from Ijis own flask and, passed the cigars with a cordial invitation to aU the mate passen gers to "have one" which they ^eaerally all to J.
