ARMED BANDITS BLOW SAFE

St. Louis, Mo., July 10.--The two masked bandits who held up the westbound "Katy Flyer" on the Missouri Kansas & Texas railroad, near Matson, Mo., 60 miles northwest of St. Louis, last night captured a track walker who surprised them as they were robbing the train and took him away with them to prevent him spying on their departure. The train, which left St. Louis at 8:32 last night for Texas, stopped at Matson, Mo., on the north bank of the Missouri river at 10:15. There the bandits are supposed to have boarded the train.
After the train had gone a short distance from Matson, John Snadley, the engineer, heard a noise behind him, and turning, looked down the barrels of two revolvers.
" He told me to stop the train," said the engineer, " and I stopped. Then they told the fireman to run back and uncouple the train between the last express car and the first passenger car."
SAFE BLOWN OPEN
Near Klondyke, on the river bank, they entered the American express car and forced the express messenger, J.G. Nicholson, to stand with his face to the wall while they blew both doors from the safe.
While this work was going on, a track walker, William Christopher, appeared. The robbers announced they would take him prisoner. When the train first stopped at the command of the bandits, the conductor, A.L Mudd and William Glass, train auditor, got off to learn the trouble.
" We were greeted with a fusillade of shots," said Mudd, " and were told to stay in the coaches. We stayed in. I thought I saw 5 or 6 men, but of this I am not positive."
PASSENGERS NOT MOLESTED
The engineer, the fireman and express messenger say there were only two robbers. The bandits made no effort to molest the passengers, whom they warned to keep heads inside the windows. The express messenger refused to discuss the robbery saying that the rules of the company enforced silence on him. So far as known nothing was taken except the contents of the express safe. Mudd said he saw several pieces of jewelry on the floor of the express car after the robbery. The packages were consigned to Texas and other points.
The bandits are thought to have crossed the Missouri river near the scene of the robbery and to have started south. Emil Ahman, constable, said the train crew told him the bandits carried away a sack of silver weighing 50 pounds. Nahum T Brown, general agent here for the American Express Company, said there was no shipment of money in the express safe, but that there were a few packages of jewelry, the value of which he would not estimate.

SLAIN WITH A BRICK

Rockport, Mo., Aug. 14---At 7:39 this evening, Lon Hayes and Albertus Sons got into a dispute over a woman of questionable character, whom Sons was in company with some days ago. They agreed to go out of the city limits and fight it out with a fair fist fight, but it seems that Hayes pulled a billy and struck Sons, hitting him on the arm.
Sons then threw a brick and hit Hayes in back of the left ear, killing him almost instantly. There were a number of eyewitnesses to the murder. Sons was arrested about 3/4 of an hour later at his home, 3 miles north of Rockport, and surrendered without any trouble. Lon Hayes is the son of Mrs. Mary Hayes, one mile west of Langdon, and stood well in society.

Police in Leachville, Ar., were asking for the public's help in identifying the suspect behind a string of vending machine break-ins.
In April a thief burglarized a vending machine in Leachville and left the machine operator with an estimated loss between $500 and $700. In response, the operator installed security cameras near his vending machines located throughout the town. Last week the operator reported several other thefts and was able to catch the burglar on camera.
The police say the suspect is an older white male with multiple tattoos. Video surveillance shows the suspect driving a white car with Missouri license plates.

JESSE JAMES' PISTOL

Will be used in a matched pistol shoot between a deputy circuit clerk and a deputy sheriff.

Deputy Circuit Clerk Warham Easley has challenged Deputy Sheriff Matt Kenney to a pistol match, to be shot next Saturday afternoon. The challenge is on behalf of a deputy circuit clerk to be selected by Mr. Easley. Kenney, who claims the pistol championship of Jackson county, has accepted the challenge.
The deputy circuit clerk will shoot with the pistol owned by Jesse James. It is a huge Smith & Wesson No. 45, and has the name "Laura Moreland" engraved upon the handle. This was a sweetheart of the bandit. Several crosses nicked into the weapon may stand for the occupants of Jesse's private graveyard, and then, again, they may have a significance less sanguinary.

WOMEN COUNTERFEITERS

St. Joseph, Mo.,--Sept. 8---Mrs. Ethel Mitchell, Mrs. Eva Heffner and Miss Maggie E Hill were arrested today for making and circulating counterfeit money. Ransom J Smith, formerly of this city, was arrested in Kansas City on the same charge.
He is a member and leader of this crowd, and was the one especially wanted by the police. The three women were taken to jail, in the default of the required $2,000 bond. Smith was locked up in Kansas City and will be brought to St. Joseph. This is Smith's native city, and although he has an excellent family, his past reputation along this line particularly has been unsavory.
