EMPIRE NATIONAL BANK CLARKSBURG ,W.VA Rebber With $11,000 Reward On Head Won't Kill to Escape DENVER, Colo.. May 6.?Just how the bandit who held up three Union Pacific trains in Wyoming ?was captured because he refused to .become a "killer" is told in detail for the first time by the officers who captured him. The bandit and chief of the posse stood face to face on the edge of a broken ravin in the desolate, lonely foothill country twelve miles north of Walcott, Wyo? late in the after noon. The setting sun lighted two drawn, tense figures, the chief with bis bands stretched high above his head, the other, mouth drawn in a grim smile, elbows in and a .4 5 Colt in each band. "Why don't you shoot?" snarled the helpless chief, his taut nerves snapping under the tension of gaz ing into the bores of two of those guns. "By God! I don't want to mur der a man, too! I surrender," and a William L. Carlisle, "white masked bandit," who robbed the Union Pa-j citic Overland Limited, the Portland Flyer and the California Limited within the brief space of three! months and is accused of other dar ing robberies, tossed his weapons into the ravine and surrendered. Fate Writes Final Chapter. The chief of the posse which had be<n pursuing Carlisle a night and a day. William Hayes, city marshal of Walcott, lowered his hands, drew his own gun and took charge of the situation. So fate wrote the final chapter in the criminal career, of the Wyoming train robber. He could not drive I himseif to murder a man, and, there fore, his own life may be forfeit to the state. For train robbery in Wyoming car ries the penalty of death. And today the "white masked ban dit," who Roasted in letter# of ma ! exploits, who stated in advance' where ho would rob the next train, who disarmed special train guard*) and made them collect money from passengers for him, and on whose head the Union Pacific and the state of Wyoming had placed the sum of ?13,000, dead or alive, Is sitting moodily in a cell in the Rawlings I : Jail. Admits lie's the Mrai. "Yes, I'm the man," Carlisle re peated to a visitor. "I robbed all three trains. I go under the name I of Carlisle, but it Is not my right name Mid no oue will ever know any-: thing about me prior to February 0,' when I held up my first train near Fiock Springs. I held up the Cali l fornla Limited because the sheriff and trainmen were making threats J ;?h to what they were going to do to j me If I did so. Hut I got off at the; wrong place and was lost In this' cursed country. "I always worked alone. I could have killed two of the posse before I' was captured, but I am not a . liked the spor? of holdlug up trains, j but I wouldn't kill any mnn. I don't care about the money. I got $311 and a gold watch last night. I could have gotten more. Find Evidence on Him. So tlioy searchod Carlisle and found $311 and a gold watch. Yes. > they had tho right man; no mistake. | The "white masked bandit" had robbed his lant train. Hut cold swoitl broko out on the forehead of Marshal i Hill Hayes as he thought again of those few minutes out on die edge| <.f the ravine wh?*n he had looked Into the muzzles of the bandit's guns and had stood close to the brink of etern-' Ity. Every criminal makes some little blunder that, sooner or later, leads to his exposure ?nd capture. Carlisle made his one fatal error, else he might be safe ,'p his old hiding place! near Casper, to which he fled after j the two robberies of February and I March. He had intended to hold up the California Limited at Greenville, a few miles out of Hawlins, then drop from the train, walk into Raw lins. wait until the posse had left the town and then quietly escape to the Casper district. But the bandit made a miscalcula-1 tion of thirty miles, mistook Hanna for Greenvillo and when he dropped! from the train found himself In a wild, lugged section of the country with which he was wholly unfamil iar. More than that, he had fallen vio lently as he leaped from the train, cutting his scalp and spraining an ankle. Racked with pain and dis heartened by his blunder, he had at-1 tempted to cover on foot the seventy miles between him and tho Casper section. His programs was so very slow and it was so vitally necessary that he should keep out of sight" and follow the water courses that he had only covered about fourteen miles and was still within a dozen miles cf the railroad when Hayes blundered upon him. Hayes Loses His Fellows. Hayes was the leader of a posse 1 pent out by Sheriff Ruby Rivera, of ; Carbon county, and composed of more than 100 cowboys, who started ! from Rawlins shortly after the Cali fornia Limited couched her way into that town and the news of the hold up was spread. Hayes became separated from his fellows, searched miles of broken territory and finally, at 2:3ft in the afternoon found himself about twelve miles north of Walcott. The marshal was laboriously making his way to the top of the ravine. He wanted a better glimpse of the surrounding country. It. was a dry, hot afternoon; the run was beating down mercilessly on the manhunter; the ravines, ridges of rock and deeply worn water courses made the going hard. Hayes was miles from the others when the cry of "hands up" came from the bandit. Accused of Other Crimes. A despatch was received here from Omaha containing the information that General Manager Charles Ware, of the Union Pacific had stated that Carlisle bad not only confessed to the three recent Wyoming hold-ups. t ut also had confessed to having com mitted the Oregon Short Line rob bery. at Ray, Utah, and several rob beries In Yellowstone National Park. Ever singe tho Overland Limited was "stuck up" on February 1), last, the officials of ?he I'nion Pacific have been unremitting in their efforts to capture the bandit. Money has been spent like water and every clew that preoented itself has been run down. A..L. Mohler, president of the company, announced that he would upend %\ 00.000 rather than let the landlt escape punishment, and from the st.trt General Superintendent Jef fi-rs and Superintendent Toucey, of ?he Wyoming division have been con tinuously on duty advising with the members of the road's secret service. lUillmnd ??Well Rid of Him." Mr. Jeffers returned to Omaha on urgent business a couple of days be fore the bandit's last exploit, but re turned to the scene of the hold-up on n special train that established a new iccord for speed between the Mis hourl river and Cheyene, by covering the r,21 miles In 4 60 minutes. When Che bandit was captured and taken to Rawlins, Mr. Jeffers imme diately sent the following telegram to John Keating, manager of the Denver union station: "Wo picked up the bandit abcut twenty miles north of Fort Steele In the afternoon. Me confesses to thol three hold-ups of passengers on ourj trains. We are well rid of him, as. train robbery Is a capital offense In Wyoming." There are several kinds of warts, pome contagious.
