The robber entered the side door of (he mail car as the train pulled out of San Jose, drove the clerks into a cor ner of the car and then bound each separately. After tying a sack over each man's head he began slashing mail pouches, pausing now and then to whistle and joke with his helpless victims.

The method used by the bandit was precisely that of the man who held up the mail car c.f a Southern Pacific train a few weeks ago, and detectives believe the same man handled both jobs.
