Sas Fbascisco, Aug. -5. A sheriff
posse is on track of the men who robbed
the S. P. passenger and express train
near Collis night before last .The train
which ,vaa held up was the south-bound
night express, leaving San Francisco at
5:80 ri. m. Th exact sum contained in
! the messengers safe has not been ascer
tained, Cut it is thought to have' been
between $20,000 and $50,o6o. The Eal
ton boys are supposed to- Tse ; iri Idaho,
and it is a conundrum to-Tailroad offi
cials who the parties concerned in the
robbery were. Whoever they may be,'
they were pretty bold in their operations.
Several deputy sheriffs from southern
counties of the Btate are stated to have
been onboard the. train, - but - no resist
ance was offered to the robbers. .Gen
eral Freight Agent Smurr, of the South
ern. PaciOc, was in a special car with a
party of gentlemen bound east. ' Mes
senger George Roberts, who was wound
ed by the explosion of a dynamite bomb,
was pronounced by physicians to be serV
i6usly"injiired. He resides in Los An
geles. The two robbers boarded the
tender as the train was pulling Out at
Collis, fifteen miles west of Fresno.
Thev covered the engineer, and fire
man' with .. double-barreled shotguns,
and announced they had to obey their
orders unrler the penalty of death
When the train passed Rolindo station;
the- engineer was ordered to stopr and
the fireman was ordered with a lighted
cigar to touch off the fuse of a dynamite
cartridge which the robbers placed on the
piston of the driving wheel of the left
hand side of the locomotive. The ex
plosion was terrific, breaking the pistori
rod and partially disabling the- engine.
The robbers then ordered the. engineer
to get. off the train and walk- a short dis
tance along the track, while they pro
ceeded to bombard the two doors of the
express-car by exploding dynamite car
tridges j about eight inTali;' which tore
the doors into-eplinters and smashed the
floor of the car. The robbers, masked
and completely disguised, boarded " the
express car, and, covering Louis Roberts
the - messenger, with double-Tjarreled
shotguns.'ordered hrm to open Wells,
Fargo & Co's. safe. Roberts set about
doing this',' but was so nervous and ex
cited that' ho forgot the combination,
and" eo informed his captors, who there
upon struck him a heavs' blow" oii' the
head with the gun.and threatened .to kill
him if he did not immediately open the
safe."." With' trembling hands he did so,
and they took out the sacks of coin.
When the desperadoes exploded the first
cartridge on the engine -the. passengers
popped their heads out of the windows
to Wee-what was doine. ' but they drew
them "back again when they, felt the-
pistol bullets and buckshot whistling
past tbeir- "ears. ' ' ;
Studying the Planet Mart..
Vienna Aug. 4. In an interview had
by a' representative- of the Associated
Press at the 'observatory -'on Turkeu-
echanze, "with the assistant astronomer
Hildebrand, the latter said a careful ob
servation of the planet Mars was made
from the night of July 4 to that of Aug
ust 2. inclusive, by Herr Palisa, chief
assistant astronomer, and himself.
Owing to the proximity of thet planet to
the southern horizon, the result 5 of the
observations was unsatisfactory. The
:pro"gres8 of the planet was watched for
an hour.'. At a point 52 deg. above the
horizon, enowCeld? could be seeii dis
tinctly extending 30 deg. fronr the south
note. Immediately after this white
patch, three large dark groups were ob
served; "Perhaps," - remarked Herr
Hildebrand. "they are continents like
those of our earth. . The haze! which en
veloped the lower part of Mars, however
rendered accurate, observations impoS'
Bible. The north pole and equator were
completely obscured." The observa
tion8 were. taken at 1 :30 in the morning
with the larsrest telescope in central
Europe. : -;

" Allison vst a Spy. '
Boise City, Aug. 5.: Allison, the de
tective who went to Gem osten-ibly as a
miner, and conducted a small business
in the fruit and nicknacks line, arrived
here today. He became a member of tbe
miner's union, and was elected as its
secretarv and afterwards gave for the
use of the mine . officials the details of
the pr&ceediugs of the union, their oaths,
mode of initiation, names of members
and 'officers and plan of procedure.
After the Gem fight he left Gem and
will appear-aB a "witness. ' It ; is under
stood that Allison's testimony will cre
ate a tr6mendou9 sensation. -It is ex
pected that it will tend to show that the
miner's union of the Cceur d'Alenes has
long been a lawlees and incendiary as
sociation. I It is said that Allison, while
a member of the union, eot possession
of the records that will astonish " the
country, and that will go a long way to
ward justifying the.determination of the
mine owners to submit no longer to the
exaction of the union. . - . -,
A Fine Thing to Haye. -
. Oregonian. It is a fine thiTig for a
people to have a waterway and its com
mercial possibilities stand between them
aud railroad corporations. The people
of Eastern Oregon and Washington ap
preciate this and long with - feverish
anxiety and' almost belligerent impa
tience for the completion ji the great
canal and locks at the Cascades. Avail
able waterways everywhere reduce the
cost of transportation. If v they carry
only a traction of the goods they - make
the rate at which the rest is carried. .;

Dknveb, Aug. 5. The leading ques
tion now is: "" Will the-railroad officials
be able. to handle the mighty" throng ...
which will reach this city Sunday and. V
Monday to attend the Knights Templar .
conclave?" - There is an expression of
anxiety on this faces of tho railroad men
concerning, the situation.'- When the 'j
plans were made for receiving tho .
knights nobody imagined the floodgates ,
would be opened by a sweeping reduction
of rates. It is now prophesied that un- ;
less a radical change is made in the pro
gramme there will be a blockade which
will not be disentangled for weeks.
