CHICAGO , Nov. 8. [ Spe < : lal Telegram to the
UEK. ] The scene around Urn crlniinnl court
building ii ml county Jail this morning was nn
exceedingly quiet and peaceful one. There
wan nothing In It to suggest to the casual ob
server that events of momentous Interest
relating to the taking away of the lives of
seven human beings wore going on within
the dark , sombre walls , or that since yester
day afternoon , when the nuws of the refusal
of the highest court in the land to interfere
with the iiciinlty which twelve of their fellow-
citizens had fixed us the Just punishment of
their crime WHS received , measures of the
most vigorous character hud been adopted
and executed to prevent any Interference
with the carrying out of the law's Just sen
tencc , should any be attempted , and preserve
the peace- under all circumstances. There
was nothing on the surface' to indicate that
several wagnn loads of rides and other arms
had been conveyed to and disposed of within
the ] ull In Mich a manner as to bo mostcffec
live should it ever bo required to
use them , or that the force of
police on the North Side had been
greatly strengthened , the extra guard
being stationed at points within easy reach
of the jiill so that they could reach it without
loss of time nnd be on hand to quell any dis
turbance that might bo attempted cither
within or without the Jail walls. Yet all
this has been done , the quietness and and
dispatch with which the work was executed
testifying to its effectiveness. There was no
appearance of extra force around the build
ing , und the patrolmen , detectives and dep
uty sheriffs who were on duty went their
rounds in the most unostentatious manner
possible as if anxious to attract no attention.
They were there nevertheless , and their
presence was accepted as u guarantee that
every necessary precaution was being taken
to avoid and prevent any untoward event.
At 80 : ! ! o'eloek-tho hour , when the con
demned men are allowed out of their cells
for morning exercise , they descended to the
cage and prepared to receive any friends who
might visit them. There was nothing in
their demeanor this morning to indicate that
they stood under the shadow of the gal
lows.
The first visitor to arrive was Miss Engel.
She Immediately entered into conversation
with her father and remained in earnest con
fab with him during the whole time allowed
them for conference. Her manner was sub
dued and solemn and the sad , grave expres
sion of her face showed that hho realized to
the full the gravity of the situation.
Miss Engel was closely followed by Louis
Lingg's sweetheart , who enrric'l on with her
betrothed an animated conversation for over
an hour. Her appearance presented a won
derful contrast to that of Miss Engel. Her
manner partook even of gaiety , and during
the conversation she had with her lover u
ringing laugh several times broke the current
of her remarks. On bidding him good-by she
Wore a pleasant smile nnd merrily pressed
each of his lingers in turn as he passed them
through the wire grating of the cage.
Next came Mrs. Schwab , accompanied by
bor mother , Mrs. Schnnuhelt , and her two
llttlo children and Mrs. Fischer and her two
children. For the llrst time since the men
have been incarcerated their little children
were refused mlmlttanco to the cage to-day.
Miss Van Zumlt followed the other women
in close order. She wore a small purple vel
vet bonnet , with pheasant's feathers , a short
grey Jacket ami purple , velvet .skirt. She
looked extreme ! ylmle , ami d-u-ing her entire
conversation with Spies her handkerchief
was frequently ami hastily passed across her
, eyes , when the time was up for her to go
; she lingered , keeping her eyes on him nil the
j. time ho was making his way to his cell , and
then , as ho was entering it , she shouted up to
him : "August , will I bring you any books I"
Ho replied : "Yes , 1 will take tome books ,
nnd you may bring me sumo foolscap paper. "
Then ho vanished within his cell , and his
proxy wife sadly and slowly left the Jail ,
bowing and sadly smiling to the turnkeys as
Bhti passed out.
But perhaps the person among all the vis
itors who felt the situation most keenly was
old Mrs. Sohnuubolt , Schwab's mother-In-
law. After talking to her daughter's bus-
buud for seine time her feelings completely
overcame her and she retired to the outer Jail
ofilco , where she occupied : i chair by the win
dow and tried to hide the outbreak of her
feelings in the attention nnd caresses she
heaped upon her two grandchildren.
From Captain Shaack , of the Chicago nvc-
nuo police station , it was learned that insldo
the Jail ho had two companies of twenty-live
policemen each , day and night , every man of
them well drilled and armed with rlllcs ,
bayonets and heavy calibre revolvers. Out-
Hluo the Jail he has ono company of twenty-
live men urnieo in the usual way. There are
eighteen men at the waterworks , well urmod
with revolvers , also several companies in reserve -
serve at the Chicago avenue , Larrnbcu street
and Western iiveuuo stations.
"Within what time could you concentrate
any largo body of mcu ut the Jail ) " Shaack
was asked.
"At fifteen minutes notice wo could bring
000 men with muskets to the jail. "
"Havo you Hxcd all these precautionary
measures because you have discovered some
reason to apprehend a riot , or danger ! "
"Well , you see thcso things coino like
thunderclouds. You never know when the
lightning may break forth , und uhould shut
up your house in timo. "
"HnTo you heard anything more about
householders Hying from the neighborhood I"
"No , that was all nonscnco. Every newcomer -
( comer , however , is accurately measured by
i our detectives , with whom the neighborhood
( swarms. They have canvassed all the houses
within several blocks of the Juil iu ail direc
tions. "
"Arc you In possession of any well founded
minors of threatened danger ! "
"I have heard stories that I bcllovo to be
well founded , some of which 1 discovered ,
upon searching investigation , to be baseless ,
Borne threats , however , 1 know to have been
mudo. "
"How do you cnmo by the knowledge ! "
"From my spies. "
"Who threatened anything ! "
"Wiill , I will say that the men who made
the threats arc such men us might do hurra. "
" "Then you think that no considernbla bodv
of persons can assemble anywhere near with'
out. your being easily able to disperse tlumil"
"I mean to say that If anything so rush as
a rescue or riot is uttemwed nil their plans
would bo knocked endwise at the llr.it move > ,
und should such a thing bo persisted In , moil
dead bodies will strew tlio ground than evui i'
full in the Haymarket. They would simply
be knocked to pieces. "
"Then none of these conspirators can porsl
bly outwit you ! "
' They must bo devilish KO& one * If thej
do. t don't. st > o how they can. Wo arc muk
ing all the Improvements human foresight cat
suggest , is Information is withered. Tin

with the consultation , "
Mrs. Parsons mused quite nil cxeitemcni
on Clark street about I o'clock to day. A
thut time she stood on the raised cellar grui
ins ; In front of the building in which In tin
ofllee of the Western N w man and offoiei
for sale copies of General Trumbull's pam
Billet , "Wva It a Fair. TrluH" In n few mm
V
utcs she was surrounded by n crowd of men
nnd boys , who blocked the sidewalk for fifty
feet in each direction from where she stood
and overflowed Into the street. An oftlecr
soon appeared , nnd when he saw the gather
ing , telephoned to headquarters for instruc
tions. His orders in reply worn not to arrest
Mrs. Parsons unless she did or said some
thing that would bo n broach of the law , butte
to allow no crowds to congregate on the
streets , nnd to prevent her from ob
structing the sidewalk by sell
ing books or In any other way.
Ho then told Mrs. Parsons she would have to
wove , as she was the cause of the crowd ,
fhlch he could notdlsperso so long us she re-
lulncd there. She went up to the ofllee of
be Western Newsman , whcrn Editor Uuvlno
idviscd her to go to the postotllcc square nnd
istubllsh herself on the government prop-
, rty , where the city authorities had no con-
rol. She took his advice and went up Clark
treet , followed by a throng that numbered
lundreds. She crossed the vacant part of the
.urrnco surrounding the postolllce , and ,
itandlng near the scaffolding at the north-
vest corner of the building , resumed busl-
icss. Within five minutes the crowd filled
hat part of the government square and
( locked up Clark street. Again the policeman
ordered the crowd to d'sperse ' , but without
ivull. Ho then told Mrs. Pursous she would
iinvo to move on. She replied thut she had
iwrmlHslon from headquarters to sell the
hook , but ho was Inexorable nnd told her if
she did not move he would have to lock her
ip. This threat settled It , and she started
For Devine's ofllee , followed again by thn
: neb that by this time was thousands. She
went upstairs , while the crowd stood In the
itrcet in front of the building and now and
lien a weak cheer would be attempted , but
he sight of the policemen kept them quiet.
During Mrs. Parsons' brief career as a street
vender she was quite a success , having sold
WK ) copies of the book and could huvo sold
many more If she could have handled the
noney fust enough.
At the Jail this morning n long conference
was held between Captain Black , L. S.
Oliver , of the Amnesty association , and thd
seven condemned men. After the conclusion
of the conference Captain Hlnck refused to
muko public the mutter under discussion. Ho
said ho expected to leave for Sprlnglleld with
the petition for amnesty Monday night. To
the inquiry whether ho hoped for clemency
ho replied : "I am always a hopeful man. I
will hope until there is no longer tiny ground
for it. "
It has bcon suggested by several attorneys
thut the defense , for the purpose of delay , if
nothing else , could npply for u writ of lunu-
tico Inqulrendo lo determine the mental con
dition of the condemned men. Captain Hlack
said of this : "Jt might bo done , but those
brave fellows would never consent to it. I
wouldn't give it a second thought. "
Late this afternoon several socialists who
have been prominent In the endeavor to se
cure leniency for the condemned men visited
the juil and > . , id a long conference with Spies ,
at tlio end of which ho signed some paper
which they had brought. Ho seemed reluc
tant and only signed after much persuasion.
It has not yet been learned what the nature
of the document was.
Three Anarchists A k For Mercy.
Ciuctno , Nov. 3. August Spies , Samuel
Fielden and Michael Schwab signed a peti
tion this afternoon humbly begging the gov
ernor to commute their sentences. These
three ; have not written letters to the gov
ernor that they would not accept commuta
tion. The signatures of ridden nnd Schwab
were secured by Captain Black and L. S.
Oliver in tlio morning conference , but Spies
was obdurate at that time und would not
sign the paper. Late this afternoon , however -
over , he was called on by Dr. Schmidt. ex-
Alderman Frank Stmiber and George Schil
ling , who labored witli him until his signa
ture was secured. The other four nothing
could bo done with , but a committee of
friends will call on them again to-morrow
and endeavor to Induce them to reconsider
their determination not to ask for mercy.
An Arbeitcr Zcltung Kelitorinl.
CHICAGO , Nov. 3.--Tho Arbciter Zcitung ,
the organ of the anarchists , has a long edi
torial in to-day's issue on the action of the
supreme court , in which it says : "For a
hundred years the United States enjoyed tlio
reputation of being a free country , and up to
n short time ago such a reputation was most
Justifiable. Hut lately a few possessors of
the collateral riches produced by the common
people , usurped a criminal power to pervert
and misinterpret tlio laws created by the
fathers of this republic In good faith and a
progressive spirit. They splatter with mud
the name of the republic. Justice ,
which is being distributed under the
auspices of .lay Gould , Vanderbiltet nl wears
not only n bandage over her eyes , but also a
watchword on her breast , which roads : 'Tlio
public bo damned. ' " The editorial further
accuses the Justices of having been led
merely by the desire of setting a horrible ex
ample to the working classes to keep them
easier in submission. It warns the Justices
that he who sows the wind must reap the
whirlwind , and adds : "Our comrades will
seal with their blood the truth that liberty
and Justice can hardly raise their heads in
this country. "
Couldn't Illrcn Hall.
CHICAGO , Nov. 3. Chairman Olis-cr , of the
Amnesty association , were out his patience
and n good horse to-day In nn unavailing
effort to secure a hall for Saturday night's
muss meeting. No owners of places of public
assemblage can be prevailed upon to rent for
even ono night for tlio purpose.
Tlirco Different Volitions.
CHICAGO , Nov. n. The objects of the visits
of Messrs. Slater nnd Lloyd to the anarch
ists Wednesday developed to-day by the cir
culation of three different petitions among
citizens asking the governor to save the an
archists. The llrst of these contained the
names of all the seven men and was signed
during the day by Judge Tully , Judge Booth ,
Alderman Muniorro and others. Tlio second
petition docs not contain the names of Engel ,
Fischer and Linpp. Tlio lust ono has only
the names of Fielden nnd Schwab on it , UKSO
being singled out as the men most likely to
be saved.
Yells ot Despair.
NEW YOIIK , Nov. 3. [ Special Telegram to
the Hni : . ] The anarchists in this city heard
with dismay the report from Washington ,
thut the supreme court had refused to grant
a writ of * ror in the case of the condemned
men at Ch 'ago. Many of the conservative
socialists und labor leaders who huvo hereto
fore been mild in their expressions have been
suddenly turned into rampant anarchists ,
and it will require the 'strongest exertion of
reason to keep them from committing acts
that will in like them liable to punishment.
Johunn Most said : "I feel like going away
in some wilderness , where I never more will
see a humun face. There are only beasts in
tfie world. Nevermore will I say tlrut there
are peed men In the world. " Justus Schwab
was fearful of tile violence that would follow
the execution of the condemned. "I be-
llcvo , " ho said , "that guerrilla warfare will
bo carried on. For every ono oftlie seven
men hanged , there will be seven capTtniuts
killed. "

AVnltc's Scalp Wanted.
WAsiiiNnToN , Nov. 3. [ Special Telegram
to the BEE. ] Chief Justice Walto has been
sx | > ttcd for destruction by the sympathizers
of Chicago's condemned anarchists and nn
effort was made this evening to destroy htm.
Shortly after 0 o'clock , while the chief Justice
was at dinner , a special messenger from the
city postoftlco delivered to him a box contain
ing wh t Is supposed to bo an Infernal ma
chine. The box was ubout S inches long , 4
Inches wide and 'J ine'hcs deep. It weighed
less than a ixiund , was wrapped in brown
paper and had a special delivery stamp upon
it. The box was received and receipted for
by a servant and it was sometime after din
ner before it was placed In the hands of the
chief Justice. Ho took it to his library
and was on the point of opening it when ho
discovered its character. To your correspond
ent Justice Walto said to-night that ho had
received a suspicious package , but ho refused
to state its contents or whether it was of ex
plosives or intended to take his Hlo. Ho did
not want to talk about It. One of the clerks
at the postoftlco says that n package was de
livered to him as described , butknows nothing
of its contents and has no idea from whom it
came. No special dcllvcrj- stamps were sold
at the postofllco for some time before the
hour when the package was deposited In the
delivery box. Nothing can bo ascertained
from the police und Justice Wuito would not
suy whether he hud reported the matter ami
the police officers are remarkably mysterious
and reticent. It is not known that any of
the condemned have friends hero or that any
have been hero while the case was pending
before the supreme court.
No Hope For Dakota.
WASHINGTON , Nov. 8. [ Special Telegram
to the BEE. ] General Harrison , of Indiana ,
who was chairman of the committee on terri
tories in the last senate , is in the city. Ho
was asked by your correspondent to-day
what ho thought of the prospect of the ad
mission of Dakota Into the union at the com
ing session of congress. The senator replied :
"I don't think that there Is any prospect for
the admission of any of the territories before
the presidential election. Montana has ,
think , u population sufficient to warrant her
admission , and there can bo no doubt of the
right of the people of Washington territory
to ask to bo admitted , but the democrats in
the house arc determined ta control the gov
ernment ut any cost , and they will not con
sent to the admission of aiy : now territory
which might by any probability cast an elec
toral vote for the republican ticket. It is
another indication of tbo damnable method
employed by the party now in power to main
tain control of the government by the sup
pression of the colored vote in the south
and the Gorman method in Maryland.
They are enabled to keep things in their own
hands , nnd It is probable that they will coiv
tinue to do so as long as they can. "
"Do you not think if the enabling acts
were prepared , which should provide for the
admission after the presidential election ,
there might bo u chunco of favorable ac
tion I"
"It is barely possible. But still I think
that there is little hope for even that. Pre
vious to the election of 1S84 I prepared a bill
for the admission of Dakota with a proviso
that the constitutional convention should not
bo held until after the elections of that year.
I hoped that the provisions would servo tc
set at rest opposition which might bo raised
to immediate admission , but it , was in vain.
The democrats would not consent to admis
sion on any terms , and I don't think that the
prospects are very much better now. No , I
don't see that-thero is any chance for Dakota
nt present , although It is , of course , possible
there may bo some change for the better in
the outlook before the close of the Fiftieth
congress. "

WAHIIINHTON , Nov. 3. [ Special Telegram
to the BEE. ) Heprcsentative Bland of Mis
souri to-day , in speaking of tlio recent devel
opments In telegraph matters , said : "i sup
pose the matter will receive considerable at
tention from Congress. I don't see much
difference between the government con
trolling the telegraph and carrying the mails.
Something must bo done to break down the
present monopoly. The most important ques
tion that will bo before us this congress will
be the'taritt. "
"Would Mr. Cleveland's chances of renom-
ination bo Impaired by a democratic defeat In
New York this fall } " Mr. Bland was asked.
"I don't see why they should. There Is
ono thing certain if New York wants to
name their candidate she must tuko Cleve
land , otherwise a western man will bo nom
inated. But I don't euro to express my opin
ion as to who the man would be. "
Washington Laborers and Anarchists.
WASHINGTON , Nov. 8. [ Special Telegram
to the BEE. ] Since the labor parade last
night , In which were over 8,000 mechanics ,
much comment has been made by thut class
upon the decision of the supreme court in the
linarehists' caso. Laboring men at Iho na
tional capital express no sympathy with the
condemned men and ' are putting forth efforts
to have It known. They arc , however , of the
belief that Governor Oglcsby ought to com
mute the sentence of those who have not pro
tested against having their sentences com.
muted and it Is likely they will Join in u pe
tition to that effect. There Is a stronger feel
ing among the laboring men here than prolm-
bly any other place against anarchy , although
thn strike and boycott is a popular and fre
quently employed weapon.
Coast Defenses.
WASHINGTON' , Nov. 3. Brigadier General
Benet , chief of ordnance , in his annual rcjmrt
to , the secretary of war , says : The
total expenditures for the fiscal
year were $1,503,000. It Is believed
- to bo a vital Interest of the , whole country
that such liberal appropriation bo made by
congress from year to year , until our present
o utter destitution as to modern
iiguus bo relieved , n shall fur-
i nish substantial encouragement nnd aid
1 that our steel Industry demands. As a step
[ la this direction I have asked iu my annual
estimate for an Appropriation of H.500,000 for
the procurement of forging for eight und ten
Inch guns. Heavy conjion nro u necessity
and must bo provided , und our unprotected
coasts demand that they bo provided for
speedily. "

THE CHOLKKA SCOUHGE.
Ydvisahility of Asking Government
Alel Being .Considered.
Nr.w YOKK , Nov. 3. President Bayles , of
he board of health , wrote to-day in relation
o the cholcni ships Jo'Mnyor Hewitt as to
ho advisability of requesting the national
government to scridptho vessel back. He
iays : "So far as tho.vpssels now in port are
concerned there sccma&o bo no occasion fern
n appeal by the mayojl to the federal govern
ment to order their'reuioval. The Alesia has
already sailed and the Brittania is at present
said to be free from disease. In the case of
he Burgundla , which , I understand , is near-
ng this port with a full cargo nnd pas
senger list from infected Mediterranean
ports , it is probably too Into for
any effective action whether or
lot cholera may bo found on board. "
n the latter case Mr. Boyles says It would
jo an act of inhumanity to compel the return
of her passengers. Ho says if the federal
; ovcrnment can in "any way interfere to
check immigration from parts infected with
coutagious diseases it should bo able to do so.
Health Officer William Smith gives the fol-
.owlng summary of facts in regard to cholera
among the passengers of the steamships
Alesia and Brittania : "Tho Alesia had six
deaths from cholera on an average four pas
sengers and two of the crew. There has
jeen in nil among tlio Alcsia's passengers
thirty-five cases of cholera , nineteen of which
iroved fatal. There have been wo deaths
from other causes. On the Brittania there
been only four cases since her arrival. "
Dr. Smith added : "The health onleer and
commissioners of quarantine have done nnd
are doing everything possible for the safety
of the public. "

Dark For thn Doctor.
tTDF.s MOINKS , In. , Nov. 8. [ Special Tele
gram to the BEH. ] The grand Jury ut
Jhariton has Just Indicted Dr. J. A. Glllesplo
'or ' grave robbery and bound him over to the
1st rlct court.
Public Interest In the shocking case is In-
rcaslng both there and hero. A confirmatory
Ircumstnnco occurred to-day when the hack-
nun called nt the baggage rooms of the
Chicago , Burlington & Qulncy 'road and
ircscntcd the check for the box In which the
orpse was packed. He had been after the
ilece of baggage several times before , but
ho officials had put him off till now. Acting
under advice they took his check and found
t corresponded to the ono on the box. The
lackman snys that ho was at the
rain as usual when it arrived
ast Monday morning nnd the check was
given to him by n stranger who told him to
ilcliver the baggage for which It celled at the
'oot of a stairway on East Sixth street. The
italrway leads up to the physician's office in
which young Glllcspio is studying. . The facts
as they appear now show that last Sunday
bis young Doctor J. A. Glllesplc , who had
'ormerly. lived in Charitun went to a livery
: hcre , and hired a team saying he wished to
go Into the country to see his folks. Ho wus
b'ono but a short time and returned saying
hat he met his folks nnd did not go as far as
ho Intended. So after ho hud bought his
Icket to DCS Molnes and checked as his bag
gage this small box , 10x22 inches , and left
mmedlntely for DCS Moines , reaching hereabout
about 4 o'clock Monday morning. When the
box reached this city the buggago agent was
attracted by the peculiar odor that came.
from It , and prying it open made the horrible
discovery that It contained n human body
iloublcd up and Jammed into the small space.
"luiuiry at Chariton showed that the | > orson
becking the box was young Gillesple and ho
was at once arrested und taken to Churltpn ,
where he waived preliminary examination
unel was taken at once before the grand Jury
ivhich Is now in session. When the news
irst reached Chariton public indignation ran
HO high that the ofiiccrs did not dare take
their prisoner into town by the usual way ,
but stoppcel the train in the outskirts of the
suburbs and drove the rest of the way to the
all.
all.Almost
Almost the entire population seemed to bo
: it the depot , and could the crowd have gotten
liold of Gillespie then ho would probably
never have had any other trial than that ac
corded by .Iu dtro Lynch , but with time for
reflection mid investigation , another side of
the mutter come out , which has changed the
direction of public sentiment. The woman
in the box was identified as Mrr. Jessie Cor-
bett , who had died about a week before. The
hotel keeper at Chariton says that lust Friday
night Gillespie and Mr. Corbett occupied a
room together and in the morning Gillespio
paid the bill for the two. From this an In-
crcdiblo report Is made implicating other par-
tics in the deed , nnd Glllcsple's
friends are said to have declared at
Jhariton that ho is not personally
o blame for the robbery. It further appears
that the cemetery in which the woman was
buried v.'ss about a mlln nut of Chariton and
the grave some little distance from the roud.
Investigation shows that the woman's cloth
ing was thrown back into tlio coftln and the
grave but partially filled , the whole Job being
done in a bungling manner. A hedge fence
was in the way and an opening through it
was discovered through which , it is sup
posed , the body wus drugged. This explains
the scratches und abrasions upon it. Some
other suggestive circumstances also have
coma to light. Shortly after the corpse
was brought to this city articles of incorpor
ation of a new medical college for this city
was filed and it is stated that one
of the incorporators was a particular friend
of the Gillespies and ho himself is supposed
to bo Intel-red in it. Great interest is felt in
the outcome of the case , and the excitement
is not lessened by knowledge of the fact that
the woman died of typhoid fever , and the
transportation by a railroad of a body that
had died of a contagious disease , Is inude a
berious offense by the Iowa statutes.

NEW OIILEANS , Nov. 8 , At the present
time over ton thousand negro laborers are on
strikes. The white men working on the su

Another Train Hold Up. ,
GUNNISO.V , Colo. , Nov. 3. [ Special Tolel
gram to the BRK. ] The oast-bound Denvci
< fe Hlo Orunde train was held up by maskeil
robbers ut tl:45 : this morning live miles cust ot
Grand Junction. At the point whura the !
robbery occurred the road runs along the (
Gunnlson river and a steep bunk rises some/ /
200 feet above. As the train run under tha
bluff Kngincer Muloy discovered obstructions ?
abend and whistled brakes. As he slowed up'
ho saw 11 vo men on the truck , and before ho/
could determine what was up the eommnnd , '
"Get down out of there 1" opened his eyes as' '
to the situation. Under the inspiring InlluV
eiico of a "gun" ho and Flronmii Slesslngci * ,
lost no time In stepping out of'
the cab and were stood with hand *
up under the bank. The noxu1
move of the robbers was to place n man on !
the opKslto | sldo of the mail and express earf
while the. two remaining commenced poumw
Ing on the mall car door demanding udtnls *
slon. Mall Agent Grubb , who hud dropped )
asleep after leaving Grand Junction , snpHs | !
ing the train was at n station , Jumped up and )
oiHMied the door. Ho was e-onfronted with' '
the guns of the robbers , who demanded that' '
ho throw up his hands , which ho did and wa9'
escorted to where the engineer und llrcmuny
were standing. The robbers then returned
to the car and rilled seventy-three registered
letters and packages and moved on the ex
press oar. Messenger Williams , who had
been aroused , hod blown out the light und
barred both doors. To their demands to
"open tlio door , " he replied : "Go around to
the other side. The trunks are piled up on
this side. "
"Move the trunks , nnd bo quick ubout it , "
they replied.
Pretending to comply ho went to rolling
boxes and trunks around the car , all the
time trying to get sight of the fellows to sea'
how many there were , nnd the chance of suc
cessful defense. Not being able in the dark
ness to determine the number , und knowing ,
there wus no express matter of value which-
they could get , ho concluded to open the
door. After doing so the robbers Jumped In ,
and ordered him to open tho" safe. Ho told !
them he could not do that as ho did not know'
the combination. Nut believing him they
put u revolver to his head and gave him
the ultimatum of opening tlio Hufo
in two minutes or die. He told them thub'
the safe wus u strong ono und the combina
tion known only to the agents at the main
ofilco. The fellow with the revolver at tha ,
head of the messenger wanted to shoot , bufr
bis accomplice prevented him. They then
discussed blowing open the safe , which In ,
fact contained u large amount of money , but !
concluded It would take too long and would
lift the cur.
They then discussed the advisability of
going through the passenger cars , but con
cluded not to do so , fearing resistance front
the passengers , some'of whom had started to *
wards the front end of the train to ascertain ,
the cause of the delay. These were turnedi
back by several shots from the robbers. The
express messenger and mall agent were then
ordered into cars , and taking the engineer
and fireman to the engine , the robbers them ? ,
selves removed the obstruction from tha
track , bade good night to Muloy and Slessin-
per , and struck out into the mountains. The ,
train then resumed the Journey cast , after iv
delay of something over an hour. ,
When the train stopped , Conductor Cools
started a brakemun buck to Grand Junction1
to give the alarm , und on arriving ut Bridge
port ho wired the news both ways. Ofllcorrf
are in pursuit of the robbers. The amount oft
money taken from the mail is not known.

icaring this afternoon und held without bull.
His parents , who.livo at Morrison , 111. , and
who nro wealthy , huvo wired that they will !
assist him. Bowman's body is still in tha
lands of the coroner watting instructions
from his relatives. An examination mndo of
Bowman's personal effects this afternoon re
veals the fact that the wife of tlio man who
shot him is not the only victim of his lust.
Bowman was a handsome fellow and letters
from several women were found in his
trunk which show him to have been ,
mi unscrupulous and very successful liber- ,
tine. Among them arc a number from a' '
young lady teacher In a Sunday school , and
evidently in high standing in society and of
more than average culture and education.
These , however , neither bear signature nor
address. In ono of them , dated October 10 ,
she promises to meet him in Omaha If prac
ticable. When Bowman came in from the

Pennsylvania to see his wife and children.
Ho intended , probably , to meet the girl at
the point named , tiut King's bullet prevented'
