Train Brought to Stop by Foil

Robbers Escape In Engine
Which Later Runs Wild. Of

Continued from Friday September 26
(By United Press Association)
Tuscaloosa, Ala., Sep. 26. Three
masked bandits held up and robbed
the New York-New Urleans express
of the Alabama Great Southern rail
way at Euglewood ear)y this morn
ing and escaped with a $100,000. The
gang fled with the locomotive of the
train robbed, exchanging shots with a
posse pursuing them with a switch
engine. - Distancing their pursuers, the
outlaws evidently abandoned the en
gine at a lonely spot. The locomotive
stopped forty miles from the scene
of the holdup when the steam became
exhausted. During the pursuit one of
the deputy sheriffs shot and killed
another officer by accident. The train
was brought to a stop by a fouled
block signal at Englewood station.
While the train crew were investigat
ing, the robbers rushed them. Keep
ing Engineer Daniels covered by re
volvers, the bandits ordered the fire
men to cut ofi the coaches from the
engine, express and mail cars. The
fireman refused, and was felled by a
blow irom a revolver butt. Having
cut the train themselves, the bandits
compelled Daniels to pull the express
and mail cars a short distance ahead,
and broke into with dyna
mite. Later they dynamited the safe,
gathered up two sacks of money, with
their pockets bulging with greenbacks,
boarding the engine when they saw
the sheriff's posse approaching on
the switch engine, one of them act
ing as engineer, and opened the throt
tle, with the posse in close pursuit.
