MAIL BANDITS GOT ONLY $1,000

Springfield, Ill---Federal and local authorities were at a loss this morning to explain the daring mail robbery early Sunday morning, in which six heavily armed gunmen fled with six sacks of regular mail and entirely neglected sacks of registered mail on the next truck. No clue to the identity of the gang has been gained.
The police announced that questioning of one member, who gave his name as Bryan J Shelton, has produced nothing of value. Postoffice Inspector Baumgardner has examined the recovered mail and estimated this morning the robbers obtained less than $1,000 for their trouble. With receipt of word from the St. Louis police denying an earlier identification of Shelton, the theory that the gang was a part of "Egans Rats" notorious St. Louis gangsters, was exploded. All the sacks of mail, which were recovered in an alley here, had been cut open and emptied of money.

SAY HE'S INSANE

Wm. Lemper, a convict at the state penitentiary, was acquitted in the Cole county circuit court of the charge of murder. Lemper, who is not yet 19, killed a man in Kansas City three years ago, and was sentenced to 50 years in the penitentiary.
In the penitentiary he killed a fellow convict, and it was for this he was tried in the Cole county court. His acquittal was based on the ground that he is insane. He will now be taken to the asylum at Fulton.

BANDITS STILL AT LARGE

William Anderson, alias Rudolph, and Fred Lewis, the murderers of Detective Schumacher, and the robbers of the bank at Union, are now supposed to be hiding in St. Francois county. Pinkerton detectives say the world is not large enough to hide the murderers of their comrade, and they will surely be caught sooner or later. A battle to the death is expected when the bandits are confronted by pursuers.

TRAIN IS HELD UP ON THE OUTSKIRTS OF ST. JOSEPH, MO

St. Joseph, Mo., Sep 22---Four masked men held up the westbound Burlington & Missouri River train at 8:30 tonight five miles north of the city.
The train was stopped by swinging a red light, and the robbers, following the old method, boarded the engine and held revolvers to the heads of the engineer and fireman. The engine was cut loose and one of the robbers forced the engineer to run it a mile up the track.
Then the robbers dynamited the baggage car and forced an entrance. They used dynamite to open the safe also. According to the report made by the railroad men and the express messenger, no money was in the safe. The robbers fired only a few shots, and the passengers did not know the train was held up until they heard the explosion that shattered the baggage car door.

CONDUCTOR SUMMONED POSSE

The train was in charge of Conductor S.E. Harvey of this city. As soon as he saw the robbers he ran back down the track and secured a handcar, on which he came to the city and notified the officers. Police officers and deputy sheriffs to the number of fifty, were taken at once to the scene of the hold-up armed with riot guns, arriving much quicker than is usual in such cases, but the robbers were gone.
The hills are being searched, but without success up to midnight. One of the robbers is reported to have been accidentally hurt, but the extent of his injuries in not known.
The hold-up took place near a grading camp and was witnessed by a farmer, who went to his house and telephoned Amazonia, the nearest station. Citizens there armed themselves and started to the scene of the robbery, but the robbers had finished their work before the posse arrived.
