New York, April 2 Sirs. Warren
S. Buxton of Springfield, Mass., presi
dent of the international board of
Christian associations of older and
younger women; Mrs. William S,
Stewart of Philadelphia, first Vice
President of the board; Dr. Anna L.
Brown of Boston, the assistant secre
tary; Mrs Charles N. Judson of Brook
lyn, one of the trustees; Mrs. R. A.
Dorman of Manhattan, vice president
of the board of trustees, and several
other members of the international
board of the Y. W. C. A., held a
meeting today, at which Mrs. Buxton,
Mrs. Stewart and others made ad
dresses in which the terrible danger
to young girls who may go to the
World's Fair unattended was dilated
It was decided to make a general
appeal for funds to supply the money
to employ agents to watch all incom
ing trains to St. Louis to look after
girls who seemed to need care and
to employ lawyers to prosecute all
persons who induced young women
to go to St. Louis on false represen

The President hopes to satisfy his
crilics when lie sends to Congress the
information, recently called for be the
Senate awl House, relative to bib execu
tive ordi-r defining old age to be a pen
sionable disability. It will be forwarded
to Congress very shortly.
The strong point that will be brought
ot is that in issuing the order of March
15, for which he has been criticised as
having by executive act usurped the
powers of Congress, he has but follow
ed the distinguished precedent set by
Grover Cleveland, the only Democratic
president since the Civil war, and in
dorsed by McKinley, his own Republi
can predecessor. The President will sot
forth that in the order of March 15 no
new princip'e had been established, but
the executive acts of Cleveland and Mc
Kinley have simply been reconetrued
and reinterpreted for the benefit of a
class of veterans whose claims became
mote pressing and more deserving of
liberal treatment as the years go by.
It was Judge Lochren of Minnesota,
democratic commissioner of pensions
under Cleveland, who fixed 75 years ae
the .ge at which the maximum rate of
J12 per month should be paid for disa
bility, and it was H. Clay Evans.-repulj-licsu
commissioner under McKinley,
who fixed 05 years as the minimum age
for which pensionable rate is $G. The
President's message will make it appear
that in reducing the maximum age to
70 years and the minumum age to G2
years the head and front of his offend
ing has been to follow in the path of hia

The Race Question.
It is noticeable that lynching, with
circumstances of savage cruelty, is prac
ticed in the North under circumstances
of lighter provocation than in the South.
An ordinary murder such as made
trouble at Springfield, would not, as a
rule, have been followed by a lynching
in the South, where an assault upon a
woman is deemed the only justification
for the irregular modo of punishment.
Delaware, Pennsylvania, Connecticut,
Massachusetts, New York, Illinois, and
Indiana these and other States by thoir
resort to lynching confess to a senti
ment which demands exceptional treat
ment of a raco favored by the constitu
tion as amendod after the Civil War.

Redding, Calif., April i. (Special) Th South
bound Oregou Express was held up at Copley, about
ii miles north of here at n o'clock last night, by three
masked robbers, and Express Messenger W. J. O'Neal
was shot and iustantly killed by one of the robbers.
The safe was dynamited from the top, and the top
was literally crushed; but the robbers did not secure
any booty. The small safe was blown to atoms, aud
the silver certificates and green backs contained there
in was blown into many pieces aud scattered over the
ground for many feet around. The through large safe
was crushed in at the top by the concession iu such
a manner that the robbers could not get the gold coin
The express car was a total wreck; the entire top
being blown off, and the sides literally crushed into
fragments. It was taken to the Sacramento 3'ards to
day. The Express messenger's remains were brought
to Redding last night, aud the inquest was held toda
He was shot on the left side, just under the arm and
the ball ranged upward, slightly, and lodged in the
skin of the right arm near the ball and socket joint of
the right shoulder, producing instant death.
The robbers compelled the engineer to let them
off at Keswick station. It is thought that they are
toughs who are holding out in the smelter town of
Keswick, but up to the preseut time the' have no
definite clow upon which to work.
Redding, Cal., April 2, 11:30 p. in. The robbers
are still uncapturcd. Despite reports received here
today to the effect that two of the men had 'certainly
fallen within the pale of the law to answer for their
doubly penalized crime, notwithstanding the constant
efforts of a hundred men, and regardless of the close
cordon thrown around the city of Keswick, the tail
way bandits are still at liberty.
Discomfited officers, disgruntled citizens and dis
heartened detectives mark time, while those who shot
dowu Express Messenger O'Neil, wounded Brakeman
Stone and demolished .a safe containing an amount of
money which the Wclls-Fargo peoplo still refuse to
name, are at?large. Aud the pitiable feature of it all
is that noue can give a clue of definite worth which
will cause the sullen bay of justice to become the, vie-,
torious bark of retribution.
Today the light of hope flared high. Tonight it
But the men who are centered here and at Kes
wick are not of that stamp whichloses tenacity in a
first dash'. They are of that type which clings to a
scent while it lasts, be it ever so faint. The despera
does have not yet made good their escape, nor, it is
firmly believed, will they.
New features have been injected into the case
and new beliefs established. The latest, aud the one
on which the officers are uow working, is that there
were at least eight men in the holdup. It is believed,
too, that the men form a regularly organized and well
informed gang and that, the robbery of the Oregon ex
press may be but a prelude to other no less daring at
tempts at crime.
