THE DALLES,: OREGON, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12. 1895.
FOR THE THIRD TIME
The Klamath-Ager Stage Is
Once more Held Up.
AGAIN BY A LONE HIGHWAYMAN
Thn W as Little Variation In the Lone
Highwayman's TJsual Method
Ashland, Or., Jane 11. The regular
monthly hold-up of the Kalamath Falls
Ager stage occured last night about a
half-mile north of the Topsy grade. It
-was a few minutes past 11 o'clock when
the driver, Charles Barnebnrg, heard
the same old order, "Halt and throw up
oat express box and mail pouches,' and
tell your paesengers to et down" given
by the lone highwayman. There were
two passengers aboard,, one - inside.
Charles Swialer, who was on the ' seat
with the driver, cut open the sacks, ac
cording to orders. The driver and pas
sengers were then ordered to remove
their coats and vests and the driver was
ordered to break'open the box, but he
told the robber the box was empty, and
when he shook it, the robber seemed
satisfied ane told the driver to but it
back in the wagon, It was not- opened.
The robber ordered the the driver to
take oat one of his lights and examine
the inside of the wagon, and then to
leave the light and move out of the way,
andathat, when he finished, they might
come back and get their coats. They
mpved on about 50 yards and could see
the robber quite plainly . as he went
through the the registered mail and
)coats ; but he overlooked some registered
letters and some $60 in cash that was
in Z irisler 's coat. After he had satis
fies himself he called to the driver -and
passengers to come back and get - their
coats and what was left of the mail
While they were gathering the mall, the
robber again went through the wagon to
satiefy himself there was . nothing held
out. 'He then bade them good-night
and they pulled out. '
The robber was a man of medium size
and wore a dark overcoat and light straw
hat. He had no mask on, but kept out
of the light so that his features could not
be descried. He got only a few dollars
from the passengers, and, it is thought,
but 1 title from the mail pouches.
Lira Oak, Fla., June 11. Three more
negroes have been done to death by La
fayette county citizens for that unpardon
able sin, the assault on a white woman.
The press dispatches reported Monday
that one negro, Bill Collins, bad been
lynched, but reliable information just re
ceived makes it certain that the lynchers
claimed three victims. The woman up
on whom the outrage was attempted is
Miss Jeanette Allen, 18 years old, ' and
the belle of Lafayette county. .- Friday
morning about 3 o'clock Miss Allen was
, awakened by a noise in her room. As
she moved her arm was clutched by a
negro whom .' she recognized as Bill
Collins, one of her father's employes
The negro threatened her with death if
she made a noise, but Miss Allen, fear,
ing a fate worse than death, gave a
scream which alarmed the household
and caused the negro to flee. The negro
was chased all Friday, and at nightfall
was captured. Collins was identified by
Miss Allen, but while preparations were
m being made to lynch him he escaped
All Saturday and Saturday night the
negro was pursued. The chase led
through the phosphate regions, where
. the negroes are numerous, and two of
Collins' friends attempted toconceal
him. ' These two were shot by the pur
suers, and their bodies were placed on
the railroad track, where they were cut'
v to pieces by passiDg trains. , The
mangled remains of these negroes were
discovered ' Sunday morning. ; Several
trains hadV; passed over the bodies, and
Highest of all in Leavening Ppsver.
identification was impossible. Collins,
the assailant of Miss Allen, was captured
by the. pursuers early Sunday morning.
He was taken to the scene of the' at
tempted outrage and notices sent out for
people to gather and aid the lynchers.
A great crowd assembled at noon Sun.
day. The negro was taken to the banks
of the Swaunee river. There the negro
was hanged and nil body riddled, with
ballets. The corpse was -cat down,
weighted with stones and thrown into
the river. ' In eight months 14 negroes
have keen pat to death in Lafayette
county for assaults on white women. In
November last a young lady was assault
ed, it was charged, by a band of profes
sional ravishers. For this crime eight
negroes were killed in the course of a
few months.. ' In May Miss Armstrong
was assaulted and murdered, for which
three negroes were put to death. These,
with the three killed for the assault on
Miss Allen, make 14.
CUlt AN INIOBBUOTION.
Secretary Olney Talcing- a Band In the
. . Matter. . ... ,
Washington, June 11. The determi
nation to send the United States steam
ship Raleigh in to the Florida coast for
the purpose of co-operating with revenue
cutters to prevent filibustering expedi
tions starting from our shores, is one of
the first acts of Mr. Onley in his new
position. Secretary Herbert has deemed
such a course advisable for some days
past, and conferred with the president
on the subject. He and Secretary Olney
then had a futber conference, and as a
result the formal orders to the Raleigh
were issued. ,
Written instructions carefully stating
the line of policy which the administra
tion desires to pursue in regard to the
interference with filibusters will be sent
to Captain Miller, commanding the Ra
leigh; and it Is probable he will be called
to Washington for a conference with
Acting Secretary McAdoo before his ves
sel leayes New York. These instruc
tions are not available, bat it is known
he will be directed to use the utmost
care in preventing any vessel from leav
ing our coast destined for Cuba with the
object of rendering aid to the revolution
ists. The mere shipment of arms is not
regarded as a violation of the neutrality
laws, and before any vessel is over
hauled by the Raleigh the officers must
be thoroughly convinced the suspected
craft is fitted out as a fighting machine
to operate against Spain. It is the de
sire of the authorities that proper steps
shall be displayed not only by the
Raleigh, but by revenue cutters, to pre
vent illegal expeditions from leaving
shores, and treasury officials are serious
ly considering the advisability of further
augmenting the force of revenue cutters
in southern waters.

Louqon Snowden, ex-United States min

onel W. M. Rankle, - an officer of the
Third Pennsylvania artillery, during the
war. ' Runkle without warning,' struck
Snowden with a eane. The latter de
fended himself with an umbrella until
Runkle's cane was broken. Rankle was
arrested, and -held in bail .'for court.
He alleges that Snowden was instru
mental in having him discharged from
the mint 20 years ago, and he bad
grievance against him ever since.
