From the Mail. Saloon Held Up The Monte Carlo saloon, owned by James Baca, was held, up about midnight Wednesday and the till robbed of quite a sum of money, said to be about if 160. The work was done by one man, but, it is thought that a. confederate was on the outside to gi e warning should anyone approach. Shortly after midnight, while the night bartender,- was lean ing at one end of the" bar, t a masked man entered the back door with a drawn revolver call ing on the inmates to throw up their hands; the four or five loun gers together with the bartender, promptly obeying the coin m and. The robber proceeded' to pocket the contents of the cash register after which he ordered the bar tender to give him a bottle of whiskey, which was promptly provided. Making his way to the rear of the building he tit- tempted to escape by the back door. Meanwhile those stand ing around the stove were liu ri v ing out by the frontentraneeatid the bartender reached for the,' gun, firing two shots at the re treating burglar, one of which it is thought took effect,' while the other lodged in the back door. The robber fired two shots in .re; tunv putting' a bullitt through the bar, another in the floor, and then making his escape, firing several shots in the air -after he had gotten outside, presumably; to ward off possible followers. , Marshall Bledsoe was prompt ly notified, but 'at this writing no arrests have. been . made. , A very poor- description of the "Hold-up" was given beyond the fact that he had a checkered coat, a black soft hat, '-and having about a weeks growth "of beard.
