Branchville, January 27.-A caro
filly planned and audaciouH express
robbery took place on the Southern
Rtailway this evening when the p,tss
onger train from Charleston reached
nearly the exact site of the succiss
ft raid of two years ago, near Fifty
eight Station, five miles from 13ranckh
villo. Seven men, or possibly oight,
wore riding on the platform betwevn
the engine and baggage car, con
coaled by the darkness. None wias
masked. At the fifty five mile board
two inon crawled over the tender and
covered the engineer, John ReynoldF,
with Winchesters. They fired two
shots, one ball passing through Roy
nolds's cap. Fireman Cobb escaped
by jumping off. Conductor Black,
who ran out, was also covered and
ordered back. By order of these
men % brakeman uncoupled the ex
press, mail and baggage cars, which
wer- taken to Fifty-eight Statior,
leaving the rest of the cars on the
track. At Fifty eight several shots
were fired into the express car ad
one man, climbing up, covered Ex
press Messenger Hall with a Win
chester, compelling him to open the
door. Three men entered the car
and stripped the local safo. After
threatening Hall with instittit, dent!
if he did not open the throngh line
safe, and finding he know nothing of
the combination, the safo was rolled
out on the platform. Then the on
gineer was ordered to return with
tho -three cars to the train and he
obeyed, bringing the train with no
further incidents to Branchville.
Nothing was seen of the men
or the safe on passilg the sta
tion. There was only a small amount
of booty in the local safO and no one
here knows the contents of the
through safe. No mail or baggago
was touched and no paisnger mio
lested. The robbers took their pis
tols from the only employees who
were armed and resistance wam out of
the question. No monsres in the
line of pursuit have be-n taken so
far. It is hoped that bloodhounds
will be on hand in the morning.
ANOTHERI Acc(oIUNTI.
Columbia, TJanuary 27. -There was
thle time when train robberies wvere
always credited to the far WVest, but1
they are gett-ing commoni just about
Station 518, on the South Carolina
and Gecorgia division of the Southern
Rail way. Tonight there oconrred
there, for the third time in a year or
two, a glaring hold up. First there
wvas the Barto6v Warren case, ini D)
camber, 1809, when $1,600 wass stolen.
Then there was the abortive hold up
in October, 1891, and tonight there
occurred the chief robbery of all. It
was as well planned and as boldly
executed as ever des'cribed in the
Nick Carter series. Every detail
seemed to have been carefully mapped
out. It took more than an hour to
carry through the whole robbery, but
no chances were taken at any time.
The robbery and hold upl was of thle
regular night traini from Charleston
for Columbia, leaving Charleston at
5.10, and arriving hero at 10)25 at
night. Tonight the traini did not
arrive hero unrtil considerably after
11 o'clock. The0 canse of the delay
being that the band of robbers bold
and deliberately interfered with the
traffic for more than an hour.
SToPPINO TiHE TaAIN.
Abonte-52 or 54 miles f rom Char
leston, and quite near Branchville,
three men crawled over the rear end
of the tender, over coal and all, to
use their influence to have the train
stopped. They talked to the colored
fireman tlrs. and told him they wvant
ed the train stopped. The colored
fireman told Capt. John Reynolds,
the engineer, that some meen wanted
him to stop the train. Engmneer
ReynolA.ked.hea firem.man what it

the range of subsoquent bullets.
The firomjan had jiumpod and wits

noldti citino to the conclusion that

Iroperty aind posisibly a wreck he

as he could what 11e was ordered to
at the point of a rifle. At first there
wure three i tn on the engine with
him, but later on two remained, and
at no time was ho without thq. com
pany of one of the robbers and his
rifle. In faet, the guard over him
got (Iito talkative and said that he
was thoro to do nothing but watch
him iand make him obey orders.
When the engineer stopped the train
tho man asked for the colored fire
1Man and said that they wanted him
to uncouple the train. The fireman
had gono, so the men had to get down
and go back to do the work. They
uncoupled, but the hooks caught,
and they cried out to their lieutenant
to have the cars slacked back. This
was don , the mail, baggage and ex
press cars detached and taken ofT
from the passenger section of the
-rain; meanwhile the other members
of the band were keeping things
lively with their rifles and oaths.
ROBBINO THE EXPRESs CAR.
As soon as the front coaches were
dotached and a volloy or two had
wwn fired a squad of mon mado for
i li express car. While the car wats
being hatiled off Express Messenger
A. V. Hall was trying to get things
in shape, not knowing what was go
iig on outside. He blew out one of
his lamps and was getting over to
the door to blow out the other light
When a pistol suddenly appeared on
the bright side. The hand that car
riod the pistol had smashed its way
through the glass door of the car.
Mr. Hall was directed to open the
car door. He thought there was
nothing else to do, as he was alone
anlld hattd no means of protection.
1th)n one of the mon jumped into
the car atnd there came another.
Messenger Hall was told to go over
in a cornier and sit down. He was
aceomaijtnied to his corner by a man
andi a pistol, and told to koop his
b)ack turned. Once lie turned his
head slightly to get atn idea of what
wams going on and lhe was promptly
remnindled by tihe chilliness of the
pistol at his temple that if he turned
hiS Fhead an uch further it wouild lead
to trouble. The ether men ill the
car*, two, it is thought, went through
the local safe and took therefrom all
the money it contained, about $13.
Then they waInted1 Messenger HaIsll
to open the through safe. He told
them that he could not do so. T.hey
insistedi, and he told them plainly
that the through safe was locked iln
Charleston and that he did not know
what it contained, that lhe dlid not
have the combinattion to it, and that
it could only be opened at its desti
nation and then not by him. The
rob)bers evidently knew this was cor
rect. They had the section pulled
up to the station house at Fifty.
eight, and were explicit as to the ex
act p)oint they wanted the car taken,
and when they got there they un
loaded the through safe, weighing
five or six hundred b)ounfds, into a
wagon that was in waiting and hauled
it to some place they had, no doubt,
selected to bilow it open. The con
tents of the through safe could not
be ascertained. Sometimes it con
tatins a great deal of money and at
other times but little. Tile exact
amount could only he ascertained at
the Charleston office, where the safe
is madoe up and locked, and no one
here seemed to knew what wvas in the
safe. After the robbers left the car
they unloaded the express messen
ger's pistols and returned them to
him with their compliments.
T'ilh FI.AOMAN' HTolt'.
One of the r1omt ,eoincteel und
beat storios for the whole affitir is
that told by Drayton Siaror, the in
telligent flagman 'ho wenrqt through
the whole flxporioeeo an who criame
very twar bwing killed. II, says
that he tlouilght there was smernsithirg
the matter with th, air brake when
he heard the noiso and lo v.o-nt alit
to inqluire into it. As he got tit) to
the express car he ioard the sioot.
ing, and th tiii thret ien who worp
walking on the ground cried to himii
that he had better got insidi) or they
would kill him. He culled to Bag
gage MUster J. W. INitler, who lot
himn in the bagguge car, arid just us
lie got inside a bullet came crashing
through the side of the car just over
his head. Mr. Shirer told the mnen
that he wanted to go to the rear end
of the car, as there was a freight
train behind. His appeal to get
back to protect the train did no good.
By this time he was in the baggage
car and the train was disconnected
and he was taken on ahead about
two miles and the passig gor part of
the train was left behind. The men
kept up a constant fusilado and all
the time were insisting that it would
be dangerous for any one to show
their heads, and they cursed like
troopers and called each other Mike
a,id Pat, and all orders were to Mike
and Pat.
Mr. Shirer says that the men he
saw had black faces, hut he and the
others are of the impression that
they were white men who had black
ened their faces. Conductor Black,
who was i charge of the train, heard
the firing, and before he could get
up to the head of the train the front
cars were detached and carried away.
As his flagman had been carried off
in the front section he had to piotect
his rear end from the freight train
that was behind, and he gave that
his personal attention, and when the
engine backed up and got the train
connected he went on to Branchville
andi reported the occurrence.
Mr. Fair, who was in charge of
the mail car, did not open his car
door, nor was he anxious to have any
communication with the robbers.
They knocked at his door and he did
not answer. And they left him alone
and he left them alone and nothing
on his car was interfered with.
THE BAOoAGE MASTER's STORY.
Baggage Master J. W. Butler tells
a good story about the robbers. All
the way coming up he was "cussing"
the heavy drummers' trunks that ho
had to handle, but whon the firing
begau lie thought the drummers and
their trunks were a God send to him,
and he and Mr. Shiver did not hesi
tate to use them as barricades against
the fusillado.
winAT MEssENGIER HALL sAYS.
Express Messenger Hall had a
short but a lhvely story. As he was
made to keep his back to the robber,'
le could not tell much about them
nor what they (lid. He gave a com
plete story of the occurrence to the
express authorities, who are already
at work on the matter. He thinks
that there were certainly five, and
possibly eight, in the band of rob
bers.
'TaE ENoINEER's ADIvENTURE.
The most picturesque story is that
of Egineer John Reynolds. lie put
no frills on his story. He is one of
the oldest and best engineers on the
road and tells how he weighed the
whole matter, and decided that it
was the best for him to remain at his
peat and not try to be funny. As
soon as the men got on his cab they
examined him to make sure that he
had no pistol, and examined his
spectacle case to see that it was not
a pistel case. One of the men told
him that the shot which cut his cap
was accidental, and that they would
not harm a hair on him for the
world, and assured him.
One of the men called him b,y
name an'1 another referred to him as
"Uncle Johnny," his nickname. It
was evident that the meni or seome of
them knew him very well. Capt.
Reynolds says that he did not know
any one of the three men on the cab
with him, but that they all looked
like natives, nnd tha. ne of the men

oif. Hto inado the enginoor go back
fully half a mile from the main body
of the party and the safe before lie
got off, and then Mr. Reynolds went
slowly back to take up the passongor
section. Flagman Shirer protectod
the rear of the bob tail car as it went
back to pick up the passengers, who
were io doubt, greatly puzzled at all
that was happening about two miles
off. Mr. Reynolds described the
mon as being "ordiially country
folks" a.s far as ho could ju(ge by
their appearance, dress and latigunage.
There were certainly five, and very
likely eigbt or nine, in the party of
robbers.
BARTOW WARREN 8USPEC'ED.
There is a strong supposition from
the features of the case that J. Bar
tow Warren has something to do
with the robbery. It will be remem
bered that he was tried some tino ago
for an express robbery, but the pros
ecution resulted in a mistrial. After
the trial W'arren shot and killed
Thomas Watson, who was one of the
witnesses against him. The killing
occurred in the stroots of Branch.
ville and although rewards are out
for Warren's arrest he has not been
captured. It is said people about
Branchville have seeii hii in the
vicinity and he is Sluspectod as being
ii hiding in that neighborltood.
EFORTS To CATCH{ THi l.;ilFhS.
Mr. Riichardson took the matter
up with Governor MeSweoey to
night and Govei.ior McSweoney in.
mediately offered a reward of $100
for the arrest of the parties connected
with the robbery. Superintendent
Sadler will go to the scene and be
there by daybreak in the morning.
The Southern Railway and express
detective force wont to work at onceo
on the case. Bloodhounds wore tolo

chestor and Orangeburg counties
were asked to do what they could,
and posses are reported to have been
organized at Branchville and ooves.
vile, and they are said to be out
scouring the country to get a clue to
the robbers. It is reported that the
party drove off in the direction of
Wal terboro. To-morrow Governor
McSweeney will communicate with
all of the sheriffs in the vicinity and
ask them to (10 all they can to arrest
the robbers, for the peace and dig.
nity of the State.
IJULLET HOLEs IN TIlE cARls.
The l'aggage, express and mail
cars bear testimony to the night's ex.
perience. There are a number of
bullet holes in both sides of each.
All of them seem to have been
made with Winchester rifle bullets.
The general impression among the
train crew is that the robbersi got on
the train and secreted themselves
while the train stopped at St. George
or Reevesville. It is not certain at
which station the men secreted1 them
selves on the train but they seem to
have clone so pretty effectively. The
men had plenty of ammunition, which
they used freely. And they wvere
p)rofuse and violen.t in their oaths.
The Express Company will (10
everything within its power to cap
ture the robbers, but lie shipper will
lose anything. No express freight
other than two safes wore interfered
with. The robbery will compare in
boldness and execution with any in
express annals.

in the Edisto river this morning
Pinekiney Carson, a negro living near
the scon of the robbery was forced
u1nder penalty of death to haul tho

was asked about the robbery this
morning and admitted that ho had
boon forced to haul the safe away

and others to the river about four
miles from where the robbory oc
curred, where the sif was found.
Tho robbers failed to got. into thit

that they woreit fafraid of bving

safe and threw it into the river in
tending to return later, opon the

Of course t4ere are suppositions,
but so far as known there is no Ic

STORY OF THE RECovERtY 01 SAFE FROtM
STREAM.
The dispatch given above brit-fly
tolls of the recovery of the through
safe taken from the cr- and haulvd
away im a wagon by tho train robbers.
It was known hero early yesterday
that tho sifo had boon found inl the
river; that it, had not boon brokeni
open arid t.hat its contents were sO
CUrt. The arount of thoso conitonts
hils never boon mado pIblic. Somo
say tilat. it was largo; tho ex pres
officials convoy tv idftn that it was
small.
At I o'clovk yostorilay morning
Messrs. Sadler and Iichardson and
several other oxpress oflicialis went to
t sceno of the trouble. They wor
accomilpanied by tVo Columbill dotec
t'vs,less S. Blishop aind MveC.Ibo,
anid 1)r. St an ford an! Coroner ( reen
with th fin4 pair of bloodhoullnas

Stato farm wore pichod up, makiig

"6Fifty-1Eight' was reachod boforv
daylight and Charleston, Axugusta
arnd Charlotte detectivos woro there.
Coroner Groon and Mr. Stanford
returned in the afternoon with the
Columbia dogs. Mr. Green tells of
the day's work.
A CAREFUL NE(Ir(.
The detectives wero not at work
long before they found a negro liv.
ing near the depot, who said that the
mon had made him turn over his
wagon to haul the safo. lio told
them that they had carried the safe
to a point six miles away on the river,
and had there dumped the safe into
the river and left, ie had followed
them though ordereod not to (do so, 6)>
see that the mule was not overdriven
or taken awvay altogether. When he
came up to the river bank they forced
him to help thorn unload the safe.
Ito says ho only saw three mon; they
were white men, but he did not know
them. They shot two or three timnes;
when they first caine to his place
The negro's story is conflicting in
somne respects and the oflicers believe
lie knows more about the affair than
he told. lie has been airrostedl in
consequence.
WANTED TO HiiE TRIEASURE.
The officers made the negro pilot
them to the spot where the safe wais
dlumlped in the river. It was about,
live foot from the b)ank under six foot
of water, but could b)o soon. A rope
had been1 tied arond( it and the endt
fastened two feet uinder water at the
bank. The officers got a larger rope0
around the safe arid mnanagod1 to pull
it out, finding that it had rnot been
opened.
TJhe men evidently intended to
come back at some time, pul1 up iho
safe and1 blow it open1.
The CJolumbia hioundis were at once
put out for a run. They caught the
scent and followed a trail diown the
river to a b)oat landing whore thbore
weore two empty boats moored.
There they lost thin trail. The State
farm dogs were tried then anid they
did the same thing. F"or the time
being the use of the (logs wats ab)an
doned. The detectives, however,
have gone ahead scouring the country.
