For the second time within a few months this city has been the seen? of an attempted train rob bery. On tbe 2.th of last Snptember an at tempt to hold up a train on the Council Bluffs road was frustrated by tbe officers being informed of the proposed plan. Two of the robbers were killed that evening and another was recently eentenced to ten rears in the penitentiary. This was thought sufficient to put a stop to the operations of this class of people in this city, but last sight another train was held up and this me it was almost within t he city limits. The Burlington "Eli," leaving this city at 6X3 p. El., was held up about three miles east cf St. Joe by five masked men. The train was stopped by torpedoes being place! on the track and a red lantern wucs across the road In regulation cus tom. Did It Like Tbey Were Experts. As soon as the train stopped three of the robbers boarded tbe engine with drawn e vol vers and ordered th engineer and fireman to accompany then to the express car and order the express messenger to open the door. This they did, and upon being ordered to open the door the express messenger did so, when lie was covered with a rifle in tbe bands of one of the men. Three others with revolvers in each hand bad entered the car and tbe messenger was ordered to open the safe. The robbers then took all there was in the safe, which amount is cbiimeil by the railroad officials not to exceed $50. This statement is not credited here, however, as 'Superintendent Hold, of the Burlington road, and W.

The following is given as descriptions of two of tbe robbers who were in the express car: tlnp is tall and slim aud wore a light brown suit with double-breasted coat and bo overcoat. The other was short and wore a black suit, black overcoat and black Derby hat. The engineer and other train men were unable to give a description of the other three men. All the trainmen think tbe rubliers were amateurs, as they were nervous all during Aie affair and ap peared much excited.
