Sev eral shots were fired at this time, evident ly with an intention of frightening the passengers. The train came to a stop and the mem bers of the crew ran back to learn the cause of the disturbance. They were quickly told by the bandits' victims. J. A. Rockwood. the ticket-exchanger, of fered to return to -Portland, and SInnott agreed to accompany him and tell the story to the police. The men got off the train at Thirty-fourth street and made the return trip to the city, while the "Flyer 'continued on her Journey, in charge of Conductor William Dunn and Engineer Charles Whipple, the regular members of the crew. Police Learn of th-5 Robbery. SInnott and Rockwood Immediately made their way to police headquarters, after notifying the railway officials. When they arlved at the station. Railway Detective Fitzgerald was awaiting them. Briefly they told their story. Captain Moore or dered all detectives out, and the posse, under charge of Detective Fltxgerald, went to the railroad yards, where an en gine was waiting to take them to the scene' of Che robbery. Captain Moore sent special officers to guard the bridges, and detailed Detectives "Vaughn and Hillyer to go to the Vancouver ferry. Other offi cers scoured resorts in the North End and other parts of the city. ' ' Pcsse Makes Thorough Search. The posse very carefully searched the vicinity where the men left the train. It was Impossible to learn whether the ban dits had horses picketed near the place or not. Xo Indications o jiuch were found. Part of the officers made their way back to the outskirts of the city through Sullivan's Gulch, carefully Investigating on each side, but nothing important was learned. Every man who crossed the bridges leading from the East Side was subjected to a rigid examination. Suspects .were hustled to the City Jail, where sweatbox methods were resorted to, but without avail. Sinnott Tells the Story. The best story of the robbery came, from Roger B. Sinnott. "We were talking in the smoking-room, when I looked up suddenly and saw two masked men standing in front of us," he said. "They commanded us to throw up our hands, and we did so. Then we saw two other masked men pass the door of the smoking-room and go, into the sleeoer. While one of the two men who were in the smoker covered'us with a re volver, the other bgan to go through our pockets. From" Atherton they took a draft for 5730 and some other money. Norden pleaded, for his diamond stud and it was returned to him. The man who stood at the door and appeared to be the leader of the gang spoke several times, and both men appeared to be cool and onto their job. "After they bad gone through us and the other two haft robbed the Pullman conductor and pushed him into the smoking-room with -us, they all stepped back into the aisle, and one of them pulled the air-cord. As the train slowed down they sprang off the rear platform, firing several shots as they did so. The train men came running back to learn the trouble and we quickly told them. When the train reached Thirty-fourth street I got off with the ticket-exchanger and came back to Portland." Mr. Sinnott caught the 8:15 train last night and finished his journey. "A iran owes a great deal to his country." "T?," answered Senator Sorphum. "and. It is a lucky thins- for some of u tba our country 'can't foreclose." Washington St3r.
