ROBBERY IN MEXICO Seranton Men's Office Ylstted by Outlaws. Quite a stir was caused in the city yes terday afternoon by an announcement that a band of outlaws had burglarized the oitiee of the Alamogordo Lumber Co., New Mexico, and stolen ?50,000, which was kept in readiness for pay. The com pany is made up of Seranton capitalists, and much concern was felt regarding the reported loss. Mr. C. P. Davidson is one of the stock holders and had left for Mexico yesterday morning before the news arrived. After his departure the following telegram was received at his office from his brotner: Alamogordo, New Mexico, April 11, 180D. C. P. Davidson. Robbers held up the office last night while we were paying the men. Nobody shot and they got no money, but took bun dle of recertified scrip of no value to any but outselves. F. R. DAVIDSON. The other local stockholders were confident that less than $5,000 would be needed on pay day, and Mr. Davidson's telegram effectually set all doubts at rest.
