Dehveb, April 11. A special to the
Times from Cripple Creek, Colo., Bays:
"The mail and express wagon which
connect with the Midland Terminal rail
road at Grassy, was robbed, today, about
two miles from this city, by two men,
who overpowered the driver, Robert
Smith, secured the express package,
containing $16,000, and escaped on horse
back." "The hold-up took place about 9:30
o'clock,' on the summit of Tenderfoot
hill, midway between Cripple creek and
Grassy station, on the midland Terminal
railroad. The mail and express wagon;
drawn by horses, driven by Messenger
Robert Smith, was en route from, 'Grassy
to Cripple .Creek, with the mails and ex
press matter received at Grassy ..on the
morning train ; from Denver ' and Colo
rado Springs. "'.'' ' ' '' - -
" Two men sitting beside the road ac
costed Smith, asking for a ride. He
drew up the team and one of the men
climbed up on . the seat beside him ,
while the other mounted the baggage
behind. '. As soon as ' Smith started to
drive, the man behind struck him on
the head several times with his revol
ver. ; The blows- staggered but' did not
. stun him.' Tbe'man on the seat with
-Siin also drew a revolver and ' leveled it
, at him, commanding him to get down,
: walk to the heads of the horses and hold
. their bridles. He "complied . and .-was
covered with guns. .They ripped open
and rifled the mail and express pouches.
After securing $16,000, which was being
shipped to one of the Cripple Creek
. national banks, and several other valu
able packages, they unhitched the two
leading horses, mounted them and rode
rapidly into the mountains.
Smith, who-was very weak and bleed
ing profusely, drove into the city as
quickly as possible. When he drew-ttp
in. .iroiit oi trie w ells-largo -express
office he fainted and fell from the seat.
"Smitn was revived in a few minutes
and related what had befallen him
Within 20 minutes from the time the
robbery was committed Deputy Sheriffs
Sterling and Jackson and two hundred
men started to scour the hills in search
of the robbers. ' Who have so small a
- start that it is not believed they can es

"A message has been sent -to Canyon
city for bloodhounds, which will be put
on the trail of the robbers', r if ; they are
not captured before they arriver ; '1 ."
"The $16,000 package secured by the
robbers was a consignment from Denver
by Wells-Fargo express. It bag not yet
. been ascertained by whom it was ship
ped, but it is believed to have been-for
warded from the First National bank of
Denver to the first National bank of this
city.. Another package containing $850
is also missing. - It is believed the rob
bers came from Denver, and knew a
large money, package was in the wagon."
It has been learned that the $16,000
package was a consignment to the bimet

Calcutta, April 11. A dispatch from
fimla, dated' noon- today,, says Colonel
Kelly, commander of the British forces,
who has been attempting to. reach Chit
ral' from Gilgit since March 25, has suc
ceeded in crossing Canada pass, and was
about sixty miles from Chitral April 7;
The march of the troops was arduous
and a brilliant military exploit. The
pass is 12,000 feet high and impassible
to beasts of burden, consequently the
pioneers had to carry the field and
mountain guns during the last seven
miles through . deep enow, . with , the
weather intensly cold. ' The troops suf
fered from frost bites. - ' '; i ? !. ' i
When these advices were forwarded to
Simla, the enemy was in a position
twenty miles distant from the force com
manded by Colonel Kelley, , and an en
gagement was expected.
It is learned that Lieutenants Fowler
and Ed wards, belonging' to the British
garrison at Critral, reported missing for
some time past, were invited to a polo
match' at' Eeishun, - where they were
treacherously seized and their: escort,.
consisting of twenty Bengal sappers,
was overcome by superior numbers and
slain. ' Another report says Lieutenant
Fowler was killed by a foster-brother of
Ameer Atnul-Ulk,'. the present ruler of
Chisral, who assumed the rank of meh-
tar after having ' murdered, his elder
brother Niza Amululk, late mehtar of
Chitral. Another dispatch from Simla
says the latest news - from- the front
points 'strengly to a collapse of the power
of TJmra Khan. It is added that the
fanatics who have hitherto offered the
most serious .resistance to the British
forces aro-now dispersing.

Highest of all in Leavening Power. -Latest U. S. Gov't Report
- - ! Unknown in Hawaii. "
Honolulu, April 11. Correspondence
of the United Press, per steamship Ala
meda j- On the arrival of the China, the
2d Inst., a lively sensation was created
by the newspaper dispatches announcing
that Secretary Gresham. had instructed
Minister Willis to demand the recall of
Minister Thurston. Minister ; Willis
stated to the editor of - the Advertiser
that he had received no instructions upon
that subject, and knew nothing what
ever about it. JNor has the government
received . from him. any communication
thereon. No serious apprehension is
entertained of any grave complications.
The opinion is generally expressed that
Thurston will probably have no difficulty
in justifying himself. So far as can be
learned, it seems probable that this gov
ernment will in any case not make a
point of honor in the matter, but will 1
send another minister in Thurston's
place. United States Minister Willis is
believed to feel some uneasiness lest in
retaliation the' government should give
him bis passport; but it is considered
highly improbable that' the government
will disturb Minister Willis as long as be
gives no special cause therefor.
A reception to Minister Willis and
lady was given on the evening of the 2d,
on board the flagship Philadelphia by
Admiral Beardslee and officers of the
ship. All the prominent government
officials then-' in -town were present.
President Dole bad gone to Kanai.
The government and their supporters
feel that little relirnce is to be placed
upon the ex-queen's oath of allegiance
or act of abdication, and that she is still
liable to foment agitation and insurrec
tion. The native weekly paper, Ma
kaainana, was suspended for ten weeks
during court martial law, its editor,
Kapu, being .in" prison as a suspect.
Since his release its publication has been
resumed." ; Its tone is nearly as treason
able as it had been before. - Its last issue
declared that the queen's oath to the re
public did not bind her. adherents, she
baying made it. under Ahe stress of cap
tivity. She was not to be regarded as a
martyr who bad sacrificed herself for
her people. : ' .'.'.' ' . . . '
A serious and growing apprehension is
expressed here - of - what the Japanese
government- may feel impelled to do to
Hawaii after the termination of their
with China. The temper of that
government -is less distrusted than, the
inordinate' jingoism of Japanese politi
cians who are likely to make unreasona
ble demands for .increased " political
power for Japanese residents in Hawaii,
who at present, like the Chinese, do not
participate -in 'all public affairs. More
attention is' directed to Japanese matters
on account of rapidly increasing compe
tition experienced from Japanese import
ers and. retailers. Goods of Japanese
manufacture are faBt displacing those of
Europe and- America in ' Hawaii,' while
Japanese retailers are easily underselling
the white men. - Altogether, mora danger
is feared from Japan ' than ' from any
other source. ' -' ;.--'. v 1
