ROBBER WIS KILLED
Attempted Hold-Up on the
OFFICERS HAD BEEN FOREWARNED
And When the Bobber Appeared Were
Ready for Him. His Confederate
Visalia, Cal., March 19. For several
days Sheriff Merritt has known that a
train robbery was contemplated, and
yesterday received information that train
20, going north, would be held np be
tween Tulare and Goshen. He Bent
deputies Vic Reed and Earl Daggett to
Goshen, and took two others with him
to Tulare, and wired O. J. Mead, a
special officer of the railroad company,
who came south and joined the officers
The officers left town quietly one at a
time, but -were evidently watched, as the
gang at Goahem got word that the offi
cers had left.
Daggett and Reed got on the engine of
train 19 and crouched down in the coal,
watching, for signs of the robbers on each
side of the track. About a mile out a
Goshen man climbed over the rear of the
tender and covered the engineer and
fireman, with a rifle in one hand and a
revolver in the other, ordering their
As the officers turned he saw them
and opened fire with his revolver, shoot
ing both of them. - They returned the
fire, Daggett's shot taking effect and
killing the robber instantly. Daggett
loaded again, but the robber fell off the
engine. The train ran into Tulare and
the wounded men were taken off and
Officers boarded No. 20, and at the
scene of the fight found the body of the
robber and brought it to town. The
dead robber was found to be Dan Mr
Call, a laborer camped near here chop
ping wood. It appears that when he
found that the officers were preparing to
defend train 20 he resolved to hold up
the other train, not knowing the officers
were on it. His confederates deserted
him as he boarded the train at Goshen.
. He is named Obi Britt, or Brittan Mc
Bride. The officers this morning arrested St.
Lovern, keeper of a notorious deadfall,
and Charles Ardell, a barkeeper, and
placed them in jail. John Haynes, a
Salvation Army man, was arrested at his
ranch, eight miles north of here, and it
is supposed that one other member of
the gang is to be taken.
Reed's wound is slight. The ball
passed through the fleshy part of his
left arm near the ehoulder. Daggett is
seriously hurt. ' The ball entered in
front, passing through the seventh rib
on the left side, and was taken out of his
back. His left lung is injured.
The robber was killed with' a shotgun,
both barrelB taking effect in his abdo
men. The shot passed through his right
pants pocket, shattering his knife,
entered the bowels, and ranged up
through his body.
t Lovern, arrested as an accomplice, is
a notorious character. It was in his
place that Assessor Frank Coffee was
killed two years ago.
A CATTLEMEN'S OKGIK.
They Kan Thlsgt' to Snlt Themselves
Whle Crossing the Atlantic.
New Yoek, March 19. One of the
greatest orgies that ever took place on
the Atlantic ended .today with the ar
rival at New York of the Atlantic trans
port steamship Mobile from London.
Thirty-one cattlemen from the West had
engaged passage home. Before the ship
left the Thames the men broke into the
storeroom and took three cases of Irish
and Scotch whiskey. As soon as the
ship reached the open sea the fun began.
The men were soon all fightingdrunk,

and they ran things to euit them
selves. Sailors who were sent below to
queil tlje disturbance were thrown out
and it became evident it was as -much as
life was worth to attempt to check the
infuriated men. Bottles, . furniture,
crockery and all portable decorations
were thrown around the cabin, finally
the men were locked below decks, and
allowed to continue their debauch by
The men were arrested at the pier.
As direct proof that they, stole the
whiskey could not be furnished, they
were allowed to go free, much to the dis
gust of the ship's officer.
DIRECT FROM ARMENIA.
An American's Report of the Condition
of Affairs There.
New York, March 19, W. W. How
ard, who was sent to Armenia by the
Christian Herald of New York in Sep
tember last, to superintend the distri
bution of money from the Armenian
fund for the benefit of the destitute in
Turkey, has returned to New York.
"Of all black spots in all this world,"
he said last night, "the blackest is the
heart of the sultan of Turkey. It is he
who has ordered the massacres ; who Is
directly responsible already for the
death, by sword and hunger, of 50,000
people, and for the destitution of over
400,000 more. It is he who orders the
murder of men, the destruction of whole
provinces, the outraging of women and
the abduction of young girls.
"The excuse is made that the Armen
ians are in a state of revolt. - The excuse
is simply given for the purpose of hiding
the real cause of the devil's work that is
done. It is a crusade against Christian
ity. ' ' .
"The Armenains are hereditary Blaves
of the Turks. The present trouble can
ouly be stopped in two ways either by
the immigration of Armenians to some
other part of the world, or the complete
extinction of the people. At present I
do not believe there 'are many massa
cres in progress, for the reason that the
country is covered with ' snow. When
May comes the massacres will begin
anew. There are in Armenia 100 or
more missionaries. They have distrib
uted the $40,000 raised by the Christian
Herald and have relieved much suffer
"I left here September 28, 1895. I
had been in Armenia once before when
I was the only one of the 15 correspond
ents for English papers who managed to
leave the country. This last time a re
ward was offered for my head by the
Turkish government. They said I was
coming to the country to bead a revolu
tionary party. In the village of Naza
rabed I had an encounter with bandits,
and again many times in crossing the
border I had to fight my way."
TO VISIT THIS COAST.
Cornelias Tanderbilt and Chaance y De-
pew Start West Tomorrow.
New York, : March ! 19. Cornelius
Vanderbilt and Chauncey M. ; Depew
will start for the Pacific coast in a pri
vate car Friday afternoon. With them
will go John Hone, jr., a Wall-street
broker, and Colonel George R. Fearing,
of Newport. No route of travel has been
determined upon and only a few of the
details of the trip have been- decided
upon. The sudden departure of Corne
lius Vanderbilt, the executive head of
the great Vanderbilt system of railroads,
for the Pacific coast, will be of interest
to railroad men all over the country.
That he will be accompanied by Mr.
Depew is considered significant by some
in' the light of recent rumors concerning
the reported desire of the Vanderbilts
to secure control of the Pacific railroads
in order to gain a through line to the
coast. . '
