Story of a Dummy Train and It. Grand
St. Josei-h, Mo., Sept. 25. The Kansas
City, St. Joe and Council Bluffs railroad
foiled an attempt to rob one of its passen
ger trains, killed two of the bandits and
captured three others at Francis, one and
a half miles from this city. The dead are
Ed Kobler and Higo Indall. The captured
men are Frederick, Hereh and Harvey.
Train No. 8 was the intended victim. It
left Kansas City at 9:05 last night and ar
rived here at 12:30 this morning.
Official Had Hern Notified.
The officials of the road had been noti
fied that the robbery of the road had been
planned and they notified the police.
When the train arrived here a dummy
train was mide np and sixteen police offi
cers under command of the chief of police
were put aboard. Iu order to thoroughly
deceive the robbers the train was made iin
exact duplicate of train No. 3, and con
sisted of an engine and tender, an express
and baggage car and the usual coach and
The Rubbers Bigin Operations.
When the dummy reached a point two
miles north of St. Joseph the engineer's
attent ion was arrested by a lighted lantern
moving to and fro between the rails. lie
obeyed the signal and six masked men
surrounded the engine. One of the six
mounted the engine and, presenting one
revolver at the engineer's head and an
other at the fireman's, held them in sub
jection while the other five men hastened
to rob the express car. They ordered the
messenger to open the door, which he did
Surprised, but Opened Fire.
Three of the bandits entered the car,
leaing two without to keep guard. The
policemen who were guarding the train
were distributed in the various cars, the
majority of them being concealed in the
express car. Upon th three bandits who
had undertaken the w. rk of robbing the
ar entering the door, the police within
ordered them to wurreuder. The robbers
were taken rouipleti ly by surprise, but
they opened lire at once upon the police.
The police returned the fire and n general
fusillade followed. About twetity-live
shots were li red on both sides.

When the smoke cleared away the life
less bodies of Kohler and Indall were
found lying on the floor of t he car. Both
had been shot through the head. The
bullets which pierced Kohler's head pro
duced instant death. He never stirred
after he was hit. indall was still breath
ing, but he died shortly after he was
brought here. Frederick, the third rob
ber engaged in the fight in the car, was
uninjured and was placed under arrest.
None of the officers was injured. While
the fighting was going on in the car those
of the police not engaged in it were look
ing after the two robbers who had been
left outside to keep watch. The police
quickly took them in and placed them un
The bandit who had been detailed to
guard the engineer and fireman quickly
realized the situation when he heaid the
battle going on iu the express car and
promptly made his escape. A detail of
officers was put on his track and quickly
took up the pursuit with every prospect
of capturing the fugitive before dawn. A
remarkable feature of the fight in the ex
press car was the escape of ail the officers
from injury. The three robbers iu the car
were each armed with a brace of revolvers
and used them freely, Imt still they did no
damage. All the robbers lived here.
The place picked out by the robbers is an
ideal one for train robbery. The district
immediately north of St. Joseph is not
thickly populated. The road runs through
a series of sand hills along high embank
ments flanking the Missouri river. In the
riprapping that is necessary to keep the
river banks intact at this place huge piles
of stone and rubble had been dumped on
the one side and banks of sand flank the
tracks on the other.
The strip of land is so poor agricultur
ally as to offer no inducement to farmers,
and hence after leaving St. Joe the pas
senger sees rutber a dreary prospect until
the railroad branches away from the river
Odd Fellows and the Roman Church.
Milwaukee, Sept. 25. The sovereign

that no authority exists for revealing the
secrets of the order to any man except by
initiating him as a member.
