on tbe O. R. & N. ,
Conductor Nevius was with the
motorman on tbe front en 1 of the
car, which had just left tbe end of

of tbe car.- . ;

Hall detached his controller and
threw it at the bead of tbe stranger.
He mused, and the bandit drew his
revolver, firing poict blank: at the
motor man. The s hot went wild,
but Mutorman Hall pretended be
was hit and fell off the car oa his
back.; ' V .v
Meanwhile Conductor Nevius had
retreated into tbe car, where the
bandit now followed him, pointing
his pistol at the conductor's' head.
The robber forced Nevius to produce
bis day's receipts, estimated to be
between $20 and $30, and also tock
his chain holder and watch.
At this juuctute, being unobserv
ed, Motorman Hall picked , up a
heavy rock and as the" robber came
out of tbe car door threw it. strik
ing him full in the chest. The des
perado was felled by tbe blow, but
quickly recovered and, seemingly
confuted, turned toward conductor
Neviua and fired two shots at. him,
botb taking effect in the region- of
tbe kidneys. The bullets ranged
slightly upward and came out 3 art.

cabin,-the motorman then assisted
in lifting the body of Nevius to tbe
car platform and "with his left hand
etarted the car for the East Tweo-ty-Etghth

Arriving at "Twenty-Eighth street
