THREE DEAD ROBBERS
Attempt to Hold Up a Train
BY OFFICERS WHO WERE ON BOARD
Kobbery Had Been Planned for March
11th--High Water Necessitated
Chattanooga, Tenn., Mach 27. At
tnnnel No. 9, near Somerset, Ky., about
2 :50 this morning, five robbers boarded
an express-car on the Cincinnati South
ern road. ,: A fight ensued between them
and the trainmen. Two robbers were
killed and one captured. The other
two escaped to the woods. No trainmen
Greenwood, Ky., March 27. A most
daring bat unsuccessful attempt at
train-robbery occurred at 2:30 a. m. to
day in the southern part of Kentucky,
when six men undertook to rob south
bound train No. 3, of the Queen & Cres
cent. One of the six was killed oat
right, one died at 4 o'clock this morning,
and the third, giving the name of Miller,
lies here severely ' wounded. The- other
three escaped. j The train reached Chat
tanooga today on time. The reason for
this summary disposal of trauwobbers
is fonnd in the fact that some tidings of
their purpose had been given to railroad
or express authorities, and T. R. Griffin,
superintendent of police on the Southern
road, had with him on the train two
trusty assailants. The train had just
reached the Bouthj end ot tunnnel No. 9,
a mile north of Greenwood, when the
robbers signaled it to stop. They had
scarcely disclosed their purpose until
Griffin and his assailants began offensive
operations. In ten minutes three rob
bers had bitten dust, the other three
had flown, and the train was speeding
on its way. . -
Chattanooga, March 27. Engineer
Tom Springfield, of the train held np
by the robbers at the tnnnel, ten miles
south of Somerset, Ky., early today,
says the train was flagged by a man
standing on the track. - When he
stopped the train, the man climbed into
the cab, pointed a pistol at the engineer,
"Stand here till I tell you to go on."
Shooting began and the robber left the
cab, ordering the engineer to go head.
"After the fellow told me to go ahead,"
said the engineer, "we had gone but a
short distance when ' Rankin found a
wounded man on the tender. We
stopped at Cumberland Falls, four miles
from the tunnel, and put him -off, leav
ing him in the telegraph office. Ho was
badly shot in the arm and said he.waa a

says -the third man taken from the en

planned' for March, 11th, but as the
creek was out of its banks the men were
afraid they - would be caught, and post
Senator Mitchell's Amendment. .
Washington, March 27. The amend
ment of Senator Mitchell, of Oregon, in
serted in the sundry civil bill, may lead
to some interesting results and also cause
further international complications, sim
ilar to those over Behring sea, a4 a part
of the appropriation for protecting sal
mon' fisheries in' Alaska. There is a
provision by which the secretary of the
treasury is authorised to send an in
spector to investigate and report upon'
taxing and destruction of the eggs of
wild fowls and the alleged wanton des
truction ot game birds, deer, fox and
Other animals in Alaska. A report is
also asked as to what method should be
taken to prevent : such - destruction - in
future. It appears the .Canadian poach
ers, not content with the destruction of
seals, is playing havoc in the wilds of
Alaska,' where game birds make nests in
the summer and rear their young.
These eggs have - been found valuable in
the manufacture of certain articles, and
are taken by thousand. While poach
ers are at work they kill everything that
comes along. There has been a percep

tible fallinz off in the number of came
birds on the Pacific coast, and an inves
tigation of the causes led to the discovery
of this new lorm of poaching. It is be
lieved by Senator Mitchell ' that an
official report on what the people of the
Pacific coast have discovered will lead to
legislation to prevent further poaching.
A Great Battle at Knslso.
Colon, Colombia, March 27. A great
battle was fought at Ensiso, March 15,
between the government forces, under
General Reyes and the rebels. The
latter was defeated after a struggle of 10
hours, although 1500 government troops
died while on the march. The rebels.
who numbered 2500, were routed, and
the town captured. The government
forces lost 700, and the rebelB 1200. Two
thousand rebels surrendered. The
steamship' Allianca, of ' the Colombia
line, from New York, March 20, arrived
here after passing over the usual course..
She was not molected.
' JBngland'a Ultimatam.
Washington, March 27. It is claimed
by those who are in position to know
that there is a misconception of the text
of England's ultimatum to Nicaragua.
The words said to be contained therein,
that "not a citizen of any American re
public" shall be selected - as the third
member of an arbitration committee to
which differences between England and
Nicaragua be submittted it i nowstated
are meant to apply only to the small re
publics of. Central and South America.
It was these republics that Great Britain
desired to exclude from having a casting
vole between the Nicaraguan representa
tive and the commissioner chosen by
Great Britain. It is explained the En
glish foreign office never classifies ' this
great government and people with the
Spanish and ' Portuguese-speaking South
and , Central American - governments.
Well-informed diplomats say ; they do
not expect any complications will arise
from the course - Great Britain will pur
sue to enforce settlement of her claim
for $75,800 "smart money." It is not
believed' resort will be had to the ex
treme measure of threatening to bom
bard Grey town. If Nicaragua proves
her inability to pay at once it is believed
the claim will, with other matters, be
submitted to arbitration.
