HELD UP AND BOBBED NORTHERN
: PACIFIC PASSENGER TRAIN - -
Engineer Grappled, with 'him and
was Shot Dead Chicago Young
Woman Captured a Thief :
- Other News. '
Butte, Mont., Oct. 24. One of
the most daring train robberies-in
the history of the Northern Pacific
Railroad occurred early this morn
ing at a lonely spot known as Mul-
key Canyon three and a half miles
west of Drummondj Mont.,
far as known, but one man was en
gagad in the attempt to rifle the
express safe. That one man seemed
to be a ho3t in himself, when he
killed the engineer, cooped up a
whole train and an entire train-
load of passengers, and kept three
men at work obeying orders.. En
gineer Daniel u 'JNeil was shot in
the abdomen and killed 'when he
grappled with the desperado, who
had covered him with two revolv
ers. ' lhis train was known as the
North Coast ' Limited, and is- the
finest train on the Northern Pacific
system. This is the fist time it
has ever been held up.
Single-handed, " the . desperado
captured two cars, the express mes
senger, the electrician of the trail
and the postal clerk, and went about
his task of rifling the mails and at
tempting to blow up the safe in the
express car with as much coolness
and nerve aB if engaged in enter
taining ctrmpany. It i3 believed
that the robber boarded the train
at the water tank, which is located
about three hnndred feet .west of
Bearm.outh, where a stop was made
for .water.- Just after the train pass
ed through Bsarmouth statioo.
where no stop is made, the fireman
started to put in a fire. It was
then . the. hold-up occurred. ;s' C Re
ports are connicting as to the num
ber of men ' engaged in the rob
bery. The firemen, mail clerk and
express messenger say they eaw but
one man, who did all the work and
all the Ehootiog'. The conductor
and passengers insist there were
men at least engaged in Jhe hold
up. 1 he robber, or robbers mada
little by the ! desperate deed. The
charge of dynamite failed to open
the safe in the express car, and the
postal authorities- stats that the
contents of the registered packages
amounted to but a small sum.
Had the train going the other way
been selected, the booty, it is believ
ed would have been rich, as that
train is accustomed to carry much
treasure. : : ;' v. ' '
The train had left Baafmouth and
as the fireman turned to gather a
ecoopful of coil, he was startled
to hear a yell, and turning around
found a man standing on the coal
pointing.two big revolvers at his
head. - .
"Throw up your hands," shouted
the man, elevating his voice to ov
ercome the roar of the train. "Throw
up and obey my orders and you
won't' get hurt."
The man slid down the coal onto
the engine deck,' and forced the fire
man against the left seat of the cab.
He covered the,e igiaeer with one le
volver and ordered him to throw up
his hands. .
"You mind what'I say," said he
to the engineer, "if you -don't NI'll
blow your head off."
Then the robber turned to the fire
man and commanded:
"The first thing you do, go out
and put out that headlight, and be
quick about it and mind you come
back here." . . -
The fireman lost no: time in obey
ing the order, and was returning
to the cab when he 'heard a shot
fired, and peered in just in time to
see the engineer falling backwards
out of the gangway to the ground
alongside of the engine. - Justbe
fore the shot, he had heard O'Neil
say, "Well if you've got tatfoit you
might as well do it here as any
place." . ; ..
Just then steam " was shut off,
and the .brakes applied and the
train came to a stop in the Mulkey
canyon. JiBgineer O Neilr it 6eems,
etepped from his seat, and in doing
so overturned his lantern which was
set below him y-Immediately he
grappled with the robber and : tried
to overpower him. The man re
leased himself, and placing the big
revolver almost against the engin
eer's abdomen, fired.O'Neil gave a
groan and fell to the giound out
The fireman was frightened and.
jumped rrom tne running board to
the ground, and hid himself until
what followed was over. The rob
ber went from the engine to the ex
press car, and at that instant the
passengers began poking their heads

Ihe robber pounded on the door
of the express car and demanded
that it be opened. : When no atten
tion was paid, hethreatened to blow
it open. The t wo men inside op
ened the door to find themselves
facing two bis guns. Both were
ordered out of the car and marched
back to the eneine. , Rnt.h nlaim?
to know nothing about, starting up,
ana tne robber tried himself to
but failed. The two men were then
forced back to the tender, and ord
ered to uncouple the rengine from
the train. This they-were unable
to do. They were then ordered
back to the express car, where the
robber tried to blow oen the big
eaie wnn a light charge of dynamite,
ihiB failed, and 15 sticks of dyna
mite were placed in the next charge.
The outer safe bf the door was blown
i open. and , another ' charge of
la eticks of dynamite wa9 used in
an attempt to force the inner door.
This charge blew the express car to
pieces. 1 he roof was blown off and
one end f the' car was" practically
demolished. "The concussion put
out the lights in the mail car at the
forward end, and the jar was felt
all through the train.
jMaUClerk C. W. Otis refused to
open the door until threatened with
dynamite. Once in the mail nar,
he went to work on the registered
mail pouches, which he forced the
man to open. The packages were
handed to him, and with the ut
most coolness the fellow took a seat
and opened the first package, and
then another;' using his gun to
break them. - Therewas one pouch
from Portland to St. Paul, one from
TacOma to Washington, one from
Taeoma to. Chicago, and . one from
Tacoma to New York.
c During all the time he. was
his . prisoners, J he kept up a
ning talk and joked with the
over his poor success in getting
valuable plunder. Two or three
times he expressed regret at havr
ing been forced to kill the engineer,
whom he characterized as foolish
for trying to resist. : The robber
' "If anybody wants to know who
I am, tell 'em I'm the same feller
thatheid up the Southern Pacific
out at Portland last fall."
Only a meager description of the
dare devil robber could be obtai'
nfd. He is described as a small man
not over 5 feet four inches in height
and weighing lees than lbu pounds
ne was neavny masKea, and wore
a peculiar shaped cap, : which he
pulled down over his face and neck.
The only distinguishable portion of
his clothing was a pair of overalls
of dark color. .
Bloodhounds from the state pen
itentiary have been put on his trail.
The Northern Pacific today posted
notices ot oUUU reward for the cap
tc re of the robber or robbers dead
or alive. Officers believe that the
outlaws are headed north and
capture will soon be effected,
settlers, however, who know
country, and its roughness
there is little likelihood of the
being captured in the mountains.
as this section of the country is a
veritable hole-in-the-wall arid wild
and thickly timbered. .

Salem, Oct, 26. rSpeciall Judge
.Burnett's decision in the hop cases
pesteraay nas been almost the ex
clusive topic in crop circles since
the decision became known. As
said by one dealer last evening.
ibis decision puts a stop to all con
tracting on the plan -y. regarding
which the decision .was rendered
It has been learned since the decis
ion was handed down " that several
attorneys in this city have advised
their clients, who were interested
either as; buyers or growera: that
the contracts would not stand if
tested in the courts. . A number of
groweri were on the point of mak
ing contests, but finally decided to
deliver the hops instead of entering
into litigation. -.' '
The feature of the contracts which
makes them unenforcible as contra
cts of sale, is that theyare one-sided
As Judge Burnett said in his opion
ion, the buver is at liberty to take
the hops or not as he may choose,
and, therefore, the contracts lack
the mutuality which is essential to
a sale. The grower agrees to deliver,
but the buyer does not agree to re
ceive unless he wishes. As the
contracts also provide for advance
for picking-money, for which a lien
was to be had upon the jhops, the
coatracts are v held to be chattel
mortgages only. . '
This decision will make it neces
sary ioi aeaier3 io draw up a new
form of contract, which will not be
open to the objection that it ia one
sided. It is not known whether the
cases decided yeEterdaywill be "ap
pealed, but a- prominent dealer
said last evening that if other grow
ers refuse to deliver the ' hops as
agreed, suits will ha brought, and
if the contracts are held inorpera
tive as contracts of sales, appeals
will be taken to the Supreme Court.
lae dealers have so much at stake
that they cannot give up until they
have taken their cases to the court

New York, Oct. 21. One of the
rarest operations known to surgery
the sewing up of a severed ven

performed at Bellevue Hospital.
The patient was Annie Kingsley,

was thought to be dying when the
ambulance reached the hospital.
The blood was pouring from a long
wound in the left ventricle, which
eupplies the body with blood. while

A Typical South African Store.
O. R. Larson, of Bav Villa, Sundavs
Riverr, Cape Colony, conducts a
store typical of South Africa, at
which can be purchased anything
rom the proverbial "needle to an
anchor." This store is situated in
a valley nine miles from the near
est railway station and about twen-
ty-hve miles Irom the nearest town.
Mr. Larson says: "I am favored
with the custom of farmers within
a radius of thirty miles, to many of
whom I have supplied Chamber-
ain'a remedies. All testify to their
value in a'household where a doc
