in, a elation m.'Vcn mil ea south of th
city, at 7:4") o'clock tbit morning. In
ttia fliflit tliat wan opened by Jatuee J.
lizard, t)i brave elieriff ot Tehama
county, ono of the roblira and Ihe
officer were killed, and Fireman Nether
cot t wait wound !. The rubbers of whom
apparently there were three, did not
lUcceed in gutting any money Irom the
expreD-car, and though they looted
many of Ihe effects of the passengers,
they left their booty behind them.
The Oregon express left Sacramento
for the north on time, but when a few
miles ouUlde of Hacramento was delayed
by a hot box and lost an hour. Thin
tune was not made up in the run to
Wheatland. The train pulled out fiom
Wheatland soon after 1 o'clock and was
Hearing Heed's station when a manked
man, wearing slip-overalls swung down
from a box car into the tender of the
locomotive, and, Jumping into the cab,
covered the engineer and fireman with
a revolver and commanded them to
stop the train at Ihe next station. When
within a short distance tne engineer was
told to put on the air brakes and did ao.
When the train came to a standstill
the robber ordered the engineer and
fireman to jump from the cab. As they
did ao a small man, aMo weiring a mask
and with a revolver in his hand, sud
denly appeared beside them. They
thought he must have been secreted be
side the road, though he may have been
on the boxcar with the tall man. The
trainmen were then ordered to march
toward the express-car and tell the
messenger to open the door. They did
so and the messenger, without much
fcesitatiiMi, complied with the order.
One of the robbers remained on guard
outside and Ihe other entered the car.
But their search was fruitless. There
were no valuables or money outside of
the safe, and the big steel strong box
was a throiiL'h safe, with a combination
jloek, which the messenger could not
Ordering the mecsengor from the
car, the robbers marched the three men
toward the passenger coaches. Arriving
there, one of the bandits produced the
leg of a pair of oveialls and, tying a
knot in one end improvised a sack.
Handing this to the fireman, they told
him to enter .he smoking car, cautioning
the other men not to move. With drawn
revolvers they marched behind the
fireman and commanded every passenger
to put his valuables and money in the
Bv llila time the colored porter in the
tourist sleeper, Just beyond the day
coach, became aware that a robbery
wns in progress, and knowing that
Sheriff Bogard was in a berth, called
him . The brave officer was in his shoes
and trowsers in a minute, and armed.
He crossed the platform between the
sleej?r and day coach, and as he entered
the latter at the south door, the robbers
came in at the other door. The sheriff
stepped to one side, aimed and fired.
His bullet struck the man nearest him,
but a second failed to reach its target.
One of the robbers must have seen Bo
gard enter, and on doing so jumped
down, and, running along the side of Ihe
car, entered and shot him in the back.
This is evident, for the bullet struck the
sheriff in the main right artery in the
back just below the kidneys.
As the robber fell he exclaimed, "I
am done for."
The other asked, "are you killed Bill ?"
nnd thereupon jumped from the car,
telling the now thoroughly frightened
trainmen not to attempt to follow. Bv
this time the passengers were all
aroused and a general fusillade followed,
the wounded man joininir lu it, and the
little robber escaped amid a shower of
bullets. In the melee Fireman Nether
cott was hit twice by flying bullets.
Conductor Shortndge secured a man
to help Engineer Bowser, and alter
about half an hour's delay they came
on to this city, arriving at about 2:30.
Dr. l'owell was called at once and
treated Fireman Nethercott. Coroner
Bevan was notified of the presence of the
two bodies at about 3 o'clock, but it was
nearer 5 when the news was taken to
Sheriff Inlow and Marshal Maben, both
of whom left at once for the scene of the
robbery. At 7 o'clock this morning a
special arrived from Sacramento with
several detectives aboard.
The dead robber was identified by
Charles Becker, night clerk at the United
States hotel, as 8. McOuire. The robber
is six feet in height, weighs about 2(10
pounds and was attired in a full and
complete bicycle suit, over which he
had a pair of slip-overalls, and in which
there were two
made of toweling to hold pistols, two of on the top floor of the big Gross block,
which were found on him. j this morning at 9 o'clock, with a bullet

Eagle hotel on Wednesday and Thursday jelerk went to call him. Receiving no
nia-hts, had registered under the name
of "H. McGnire, San Francisco."
MAavsvii.Lg, April 3. An inipiest was
held today by the coroner and a jurr, at
which the facts of the killing of Sheriff'
Bogard, and a train-robber last Saturday
morning were fully presented. Save for
a few Immateiral points the evidence ;
does not differ from that presented here
tofore. The chase after the missing robber, or
robbers, has bn confined to a few local
officers and men whose incentive has
been the reward. None of these men
reported either to Sheriff Smith of Sutter
county, or to Sheriff Inlow, of Ynba,
consequently there is nothing new to lhe generally accepted theory ot the
relate concerning the search. Several re-, guicl,le '" however, that Abe became

All the passengers climbed outside the

thinks, being a very large man, was on
able to get out of the cabin and he be

The captain, four of the crew and Jen
kins got in a small boat, 'but Ben
nett, Ash er and the first officer climbed
on a life raft, which they tied to the
steamer. The small boat, after an
hour's hard work, reached the shore five
miles below Fail haven. The captain
secured a horse and road to Fairhaven
for a steamer to rescue those on the
raft. As soon as the small boat reached
shore she capsized, and all were so be
numbed that Jenkins says they could
not have held out any longer. The
steamer J. E. Boyden, went to the
Buckeye's assistance, but thirewasno
news of her return up to 10 o'clock.
It is probable that Asher and Beunett,
who are well-known abstractors of this
city, Kantzman and the first officer ate
drowned. The two large lifeboats on lite
Buckeye were tied on, and the crew were
unable to untie them as they were partly
covered with water so thev only had the
small boat. A heavy wind was blowing,
aud from Ihe condition of the survivors
it is possible the others perrished before
assistance could reach them.

INVITED TO CHICAGO.
Cleveland to be Eatertaiied hy th Batineas
Mraef Tkat City.
VA8iiiNiiTOic, April I. The president
this morning received a representative
delegation of Chicagoans in behalf of
leading citizens of Chicago, irrespective
of party affiliations, to invite him to a
public reception to hi in self and Mrs.
Cleveland, as an expression of apprecia- ,
lion of his stead&ist preservation of a
' 'sound national currency." Members
of the delegation : Williams T. Baker,
president of the Chicago board of trade ;
George W. Smith, ex-president of the
Union League Club; John A. Roche, ex- .
mayor: T. V. Harvey, ex-president of
the Commercial Club; David Kelly and
Henry 0. Robbins. The president ex
pressed his gratification, but gaye no
assurance of his acceptance, saying hia
duties might require his presence in '
Washington for some time.
The invitation reads: "The business
men and citizens of Chicago, irrespective
of party affiliations, respectfully invite
yon and Mrs Cleveland lo a public ,
reception tj be tendered you in this city
to express our deep appreciation of your
statesmanlike and courageous action in
maintaining the financial credit of our
government and your uncompromising
attitude in favor of the preservation of
a national currency."
As spokesman for the delegation Mr.
Robbins described their reception as
"We were received very pleasantly ,
and explained to the president the non
partisan character of the invitation. We
also told him the business men cf
Chicago heartily endorsed the move
ment; that while it waa intended as a
personal compliment to him, it had a
still further motive in viewthe devel
opment of an aggressive sound money
sentiment throughout the West. The
president said he personally appreciated
fully the endorsement exhibited by the
invitation and realiaed the importance
of the movement in favor of sound money
which he arproved, and that he would
take the matter under consideration and
would communicate with us by letter;
that if hecould not consider the invita
tion favorable it would be because of
official reasons, which he could not see
bis wav to overcome.
