A BIG HOLDUP IN KC

Kansas City, Mo., Apr 1--Two armed men in a motor car held up two messengers of the Swift & Company packers, on the Twenty-third street viaduct here shortly after 9 o'clock this morning, and escaped with a handbag containing $45.850.
The messengers in a motor car, were carrying the payroll of Swift's from the Drover's National Bank to the packing plant when the holdup occurred.
A car containing two men approached from behind and crossed directly ahead of the messenger's car, where it halted, forcing the automobile with the messengers to stop. The two bandits leaped from their car, ordered the messengers to hold up their hands, and escaped with the handbag containing the money. The messengers were not armed.
The holdup was staged when the viaduct was crowded with motor cars and street cars taking people to their morning work. One street car was forced to halt during the proceedings as the bandit's motor car blocked its path. Numerous persons looked on as the messengers, obeying the command of the robbers, passed out the satchel containing the payroll.
Coin wrappers were lying on the floor of the messenger's motor car, and when one of the bandits asked if they contained money he received a negative reply.
Not a shot was fired during the holdup. The two men escaped before the police arrived.




In 1903, Bailey Montross and Paul Clinton were arrested at the Planters Hotel in St. Louis for stealing valises from Pullman cars at Union Station.
