V ;'to Others Covered, "Fireman Roy Prawl and Lave Wright, another'- engineer ho was on the tnglnS with me.' had In ths meanwhile, been cov tied by ha other two men and they, too, were down off' the engine with their handa up. ' The bandits wore long rain coats, with blue- polka dot Handkerchiefs for masks and, slouch hftta. - 'After the train had KTopped and 1 got down again they marched us down to the mail car and the man ' covering me ordered me to knock on the mall car door and tell tha boy's Inside to come out. "One of the djjrs waa partly open, but a eirK slid ' It shut and then the bandits ordered him to open the door and 'get 4own out of there.' He did so and then . the other door was opened and tha clerks, seven of them, were told to get down and all of us were lined up with our backs to the car. One of the bandits called for Whltmore to get back In the car and throw out the mall sacks. After this was dons two or three of the clerks were told to take hold of the sacks and carry them down the track ahead of the engine. The man covering me, told me to help carry the mail sacks for, said he, you get a blg- . ger salary than I' do and can afford It. I carried the aack all right." "The bsndlts did not do much talking. One of them said. TVs don't want to hurt any of you. We are pretty good fellows, but sre tn a bad Job." Prawl Repeats the HXpry Frawl was the second witness and told . practically the same story as did the first witness, except that he said the first ..knowledge he had of anything wrong was when one of the bandits grabbed him by the collar and shoved a pistol in his face and commanded him to hold Mp his hands. "I thought It was a joke at first," said the witness.- "and couldn't see the. man, very well as I had Just been putting coal Into the firebox and waa somewhat blinded .b 51 b tight.' I did not have to carry any . of the maH sacks." . . . . Both Mikeljohn and Prawl recognised Torgensen and Woods as the two men who held them covered with pistols, by ' their voices and general sise and ap pearance. Harold M. Wright, the engineer who was ' with Mikeljohn and Prawl and who had '" deadheaded down ' from Columbus, told a "similar story; He recognised Torgensen by ' his eyes and voice. . Attorney Macfarland did not undertake a very, severe crown-examination, his evident Intention being tc get at the meat of the "" line of prosecution to be brought out by th government. The examination of the witnesses ' was conducted b)y "United 'Btatea Plstrict Attorney Ooss on behalf " of the government. .No, He Didn't Do That. "Yon did not take the gun away from the bandit to examine it, you are only Judging by general appearance?" That waa the facetious question put to M. C, Rush, mail clerk on the Overland the night of the holdup, by Attorney Macfar land.. Rush had testified that the gun one of the bandits had wai an automatic. At the close of the morning session Mr. Rush testified to the happenings the night of the - holdup. He said that . when the emergency brakes were applied to the train he looked 'out the south door, but aa he could See nothing he looked out of the -Saris' wash dresses in re freshingly new styles and colors Send for New Spring s:s 'Catalog. ais-iur x:".: '..'.a emtjrxb KEAOH A 1. 1.

"After the bandits had lined us all up ihey assured us they were all good fellows and did not want to hurt any of us unless they hsd to, but they wanted to get Uncle Sam's money," said Mr. Rush. "When we were all lined up with our hands tn the air one of the robbers ordered Whltmore to go into the car with hlra and sort out the registered sacks. While they were in the car the bandit who was guard ing us said, 'If that man gets hurt Inside that car I am going to .shoot every ons of you fellows.' We assured him he was not apt to get hurt." Mr. Rush Identified the three alleged bandits as having the same general appear ance as the men who held up the train. He identified the registered pouches by their numbers Snd also Identified a pack age in one of the pouches as a package for which he had receipted at Lexington and which he had put In one of the pouches. Good Stories of Children. The evidence of the afternoon was that of the Brown Park school children who discovered the cache of the robbers near that building and which resulted in the capture of Wood, Gordon and Torgensin. Harold Whittaker, aged 8 years, and John Potach, aged 9 years, who found the flash lights and overalls, told their stories very Intelligently. Whittaker was particu larly bright In hia answers, merely reply ing "yes" and "no" as different questions were put to him. Nor were the little fel lows disconcerted in the slightest by the cross examination. Both boys were 100 young to be sworn, but their stories were so plain and truthful that they carried conviction with them at once. The accused men watched the children closely during all their testimony, particu larly the evidence of John Perrtna, aged 13 years; Anton Patch, aged 14, and Joe Tesnchltdek, who saw the three men prowling about the school house Thursday evening after the pistols and flash lights of the bandits had been discovered by the other boys. Each testified to the fact that they saw Woo beckoning to the three men to come on, and the actions of thle men were such asto attract the atten tion of the boys. They all three identified the three men, although It , was after o'clock when they saw them Thursday night and sent, word to the police that the men were hanging about there. Doys Tell of Find. John Krowlak. aged 12 years, the boy who made the first find of the strsp and pistols under the telegraph pole, told of his find and that he had taken the articles to the home of hla grandmother a short distance away, . He made the find about noon, and Immediately told the principal of the eckool, Miss Hayea, about It. John Swoboda, aged 14, told of his find ing one of the guns, burled under about four Inches of dirt, and how he took It to'Janitor Bents. June Corey, mall clerk, was the first witness in the afternoon. He said: "There were eight clerks In the car. Rush was the first man at the door and he called back 'this Is a hold-up, fellows,' and Just then some one from the outside called out, 'Come out of that, you fellows, and hurry.' There was some shooting outside. We Jumped down and were told to line up, and were searched and were asked where -the mall lerk -was. I- told them we were all mall clerks. They then set us to work carrying pouchea after they had been thrown out of the can Just then a man came round In front of the engine and began shooting at the headlight. He shot four or five times. While we were lined up one man stood behind us and be tween us and the car. I think it was Torgensen and Wood who stood In front there's "snap" to every one of these dresses; there's shape to them; they fit as modern girls would have them fit; all trimmed in a manner that betokens much regard for fashion's dictates Never yet has Omaha had such a show of clever "wash" dresses.

How Mall Clerks Aeted. O. O. Whltmore testified to the stop be ing made about a mile and a half east of Seymour. He said: "At first I thought It waa a wreck, but soon found out that we were In a holdup. We were all ordered to get out of the car. One of the men said: 'If you fellows be good, you won't be hurt.' I snswered, 'We'll be good, all right ' The leader then said, "That's all rlrht, that's what t like to hear.' tie then ordered me to climb bark Into the car and get out a special shipment. I told him I knew of no special shipment, but he commanded that I should call out the pouchea, and then he stepped around me and picked up two small pouchta, and threw them on the plle.x He then went down the length of . the car ar.d seeing our hand hae,s wanted to know what was In them. I told him they were simply our working clothes and there wss nothing of nny value In them. This seemed to sstlsfy him, but he kept his pistol In his hand all the time, He then commanded me to pick up the pouches and throw them out of the car I then Jumped out,' he following, and then he Insisted thst I should help carry the pouches down the trsck. I remonstrated a little, telling him I hsd only recently recovered from a broken leg and was lame, but he couldn't take any excuses, so I helped to carry the sacks. I recognise the voice, walk and general appearance of the man as the pilsoner Woods. I am very sure that he is the same man who took the leadership and was in the car with me. He has a peculiar walK and I recognized that in the car, and also when he was In the court room here Saturday. Tes, he Is the same man." Woods Look Worried. Wood watched Whltmore very . closely while he was testifying and seemed to be worried over the positive Identification stated by Whltmore. Other wlsnesses of the afternoon were John Vavre, and A. R. Bentl, Janitors Of the Brown Psrk school, who testified to seeing Woow and Torgensen prowling about the school house Friday and Sunday. At one time they saw three men. Gordon being one of them. This was on Friday May 21. They saw the men sitting on the steps at the south side of the school house. The remainder of their evidence related to the discovery of the mail sacks In the school house attie. Officer Turnquest, Elsderfer and Ma wjilnney of the South Omaha police force testified as to the arrest of the three men last Thursday night about 11 o'clock. Nei ther of the three men were armed when arrested near the school house. They all told the officers about the same story of their reasons for being In that vicinity, having Just taken some girls home. Wood said he had escorted a married woman, named Mrs. Olson, home. The, others did not give the names of their women friends. Frank Kudona, aged 19, told of his find ing the automatic gun and a handkerchief of a blue and polka dot pattern .Thursday evening about 4 o'clock. They were buried about four Inches under the ground, near where the other articles were found. The last witness of the afternoon was Postofflce Inspector I.oren A. Thompson. His testimony related to the recovery of the mall sacks from the school house. The government then rested. Defense Offer Nothing;. Attorney McFarland held a short con ference with the three accused men and decided to put neither of them on the stand.' stating that the defense had no. evidence to offer Just at this time. Mr. McFajland said to ths court: "It does not appear that either of these men have been sufficiently identified to connect them .with this crime. I think that an affair of this kind, which has been so skillfully car ried out, has been worked by shrewder men than my clients. I do not think thers has been any evidence Introduced showing that these men are the probable guilty parties and shall move their discharge." Commissioner Anderson did not agree with Mr. McFarland, and the three men wer consequently held to the federal grand Jury in the sum of f 25,000 eacfi.
