IRON MOUNTAIN TRAIN ROBBERY

the Attempted Queen & Crescent
St. Louis, March 28. The California
express on the Iron Mountain railroad,
which was held np by two masked rob
"bers one- mile this side ot Williamsville,
Mo., at midnight last night, reached
here this forenoon, several hoars late.
According to the trainmen, the hold-up
was one of the most daring since the
time of the Jeeee James gang.
The two. men took complete possession
of the train. Their arms consisted of
Winchesters and Colt's revolvers. ' Con
ductor Webb said: "One of the men
covered me with a gnn and ordered me
to throw np my hands. He grabbed my
watch, and ran his hands down t my
pockets and got about $7 I had collected
in fares. They forced the engineer to
run upthe track about half a mile with
the express car, after uncoupling it from
the train. The messenger was com
pelled to open the larger safe or they
threatened to kill him. They ransacked
local packages, but Messenger Early
thinks they got nothing of value, as the
money was locked in the larger safe at
Poplar Bluffs. Their work dpne, the
highwaymen got over the fence and
made for .the woods."
Bow It was Done.
Louisville. Ky., March 28. The in
side facts of the attempted hold-up of
the Queen & Crescent No. 3, near Green
wood, yesterday morning, are told in a
special to the Evening Post, as follows
"The plot to bold up the train had
been hatching for weeks. The road and
express authorities managed to get a de
tective into the confidence of the robbers,
who stayed with them until about 2
o'clock. The train was due at the ren
dezvous at 3 o'clock, and the local detec
tive made an excuse to go to Greenwood
station, a mile away and get the crowd
something . to eat. When the train
pulled into Greenwood, Detectives Grif
fin and Eddy were notified by Frazer,
tne local detective, tnat the game was
ready. The engineer was to give a
special signal or whistle if the train was
' halted by bandits.
" Promptly on the spot, one mile south
oi greenwood, in tne darK snadow ot a
tunnel cut, the signal came from the en'
gineer. The train wheels had not
- stopped ere Griffin, Eddy and Frazer
sprang from the train. Every one fairly
. in sight went down under the rapid fire
of the detectives. The robbers were so
dazed that their reply fire was wild, and
in a few minutes all was over.
''The two men killed were Jerry Mor
row aged 50, and T. Morrow, 16, desper
ate characters, living in the vicinity.
The tramp, Martin, the1 third man shot
was not thought to have any connection
with the affair."

There was a decided sensation at the
close of the sitting last night, when the
government announced that it would
adjourn the legislature Friday until May.
This means the remedial order cannot
be discussed before adjournment. The

Prendergast, the leader of the French
Catholic party, pronounces it a scheme
to force the Dominion government to
take immediate action.
Premier Greenway sayB . the remedial
order is too important a matter to be
dealt with precipitately by the house,
and he therefore deemed it wise to take
ample time to become thoroughly
acquainted with the whole range of the
subject.! The government has. already
submitted to eminent constitutional
lawyers some of the chief points affect

local politicians that the early dissolu

ment of the legislature.
Chicago, March 28. Sidney Cooper, a
colored murderer, and his wife and two
children, created an exciting scene this
morning in Judge Sear's court room at
the beginning of the trial. When as
sistant State's attorney Pearson, who
bad just finished the trial of Maggie Til
ler, condemned to death, asked the first
Venireman, "have you any scruples
against the inflection of the death pen
alty?" the citizen answered, "No."
At the mention of the word, "death,"
the prisoner, who had shot George
Adams, another colored man, in cold-
blood, over the question of a dollar, col
lapsed in bis chair as if struck dead.
He fell back unconscious and while the
bailiffs tried to restore the terror-stricken
wretch, his wife and children became
wildly hysterical at the sight. The
screaming woman was removed to' an
ante-room by order of the judge. The
hysteria spread to some of the spectators
and for a moment pandemonium seemed
imminent. All through the examina
tion the murderers lace was blanched
They Iscussed the Canal.
Washington, March 28. The presl
dent saw, by appointment, today War
ner Miller and other chief officials of the
Nicaragua canal. These gentlemen
afterwards saw Gresham, with whom it
is said they discussed the effect Eng
land's ultimatum would have on their
interests in Central America. Senator
Miller subsequently said he was con'
fident American interests would not be
allowed to suffer. He had come to
Washington in regard to the appoint
ment of the board of engineers, "for the
purpose of ascertaining the feasibility,
permanence and cost of the construction
of the canal."
Miller said the engineers, he under
stood, would be selected at once.

Arms for Insurgents.
Washington, March 28. The govern
ment has been intormed that three ship
ments of arms have been made to Cuban
insurgents from the United States with
in the past three weeks. In one case
arms were sent from Philadelphia to
Savanna and transferred from that point
to Santiago de Cuba, the hotbed of the
insurgents, by means of fishing smacks
The government is doing all it can to
prevent these shipments, but it is said
they are being constantly made. Gen
eral Compos' appointment as captain-
general of Cuba is viewed here as mean
mg a vigorous campaign against in'
snrgents. ' - - :

Latest U. S. Gov't Report
What Great Britain Meant., -
'New Yohk, March 28. A special toj
the TriBhne from Washington says:' It
is said by those who are in position to
be well informed as to the intention of
the British foreign office that the re
presentations which this government
has made to Great Britain through Am
bassador Bayard in regard to the British
ultimatum to Nicaragua, are a miscon
ception of the text of that document.
The seven words in the ultimatum to
which President Cleveland and his cabi
net bave attached so much importance
in the measure, were those which provid
ed that the third member of the arbitra
tion commission should be "not a citi
zen of any American state." This phrase
was tnougbtto be an explicit declaration
by England that she declined to recog
nize any force in the Monroe doctrine,
and to be a gratuitous reflection upon
the United States. . . - '
The intention to cast any reflection
upon the United States was promptly
disavowed by Lord Kimberly through
one of bis under secretaries, and it is
said that the meaning - of that unfortu
nate sentence and the intentions of the
British government have been miscon
strued. As ordinarily, employed and
understood by the British foreign office,
the pharse "American states" is limited
in application to the smaller republics ot
Central and South America. It was
republics which Great Britain desired to
exclude from having a casting vote.
While technically and literally the
United States forms one of the "Ameri-
l states," it is explained that the
English foreign office never classifies
this government and its people with the
Spanish and Portuguese-speaking South
and Central American countries, conse
quently it is asserted that the words
Not a citizen of any American state"
do not bar out the United States accord
ing to the view of the British foreign
office. . '
Viewed in this light a clearer under
standing is given to ' the denial' on the
part of Great Britain that any reflection
upon the United States was intended in
the propostion above referred to. . It
has been said by a high diplomatic
authority that if the United States were
excluded from participation in the arbi
tration such an act would be not only
undiplomatic but offensive to a country
with which Great Britain maintains
"Perhaps you would not think so, bnt
a very large proportion of the diseases
in New York comes from carlessnes
about catching cold, "says Dr. Cyrus Ed
son. "It is such a simple thing and so
common that very few people, unless it
is a case of pneumonia, pay any atten
tion to the cold. New York is one of
the healthiest places on the Atlantic
Coast and yet there are a great many
cases of catarrh and consumption which
have their origin in thia neglect of the
simplest precaution of every day fife,
The most sensible advice is, when you
bave one get rid of it as soon as possible,
By all means do not neglect it." Dr. Ed-
son does not tell you how to cure a cold
but we will. It will relieve the lungs,
aid expectoration, open the secretions
and soon effect a permanent cure. 50

Los Angeles, Cal., March 28. Cin
