He was absent from Fort Worth at the time of the train robbery at Ben - brook, on the Texas and Pacific Rail - wav. Tha first Dallas state fair came oil" a few weeks after the Benbrook robbery, robbery, and Bunch turned up at Dallas loaded with money. He gambled heavily heavily during the fair, won and lost in nearly equal sums. He oscillated between between Dallas and Fort Worth a couple of years, making gamblers his associates associates and gambling - nouses his home. He ?ot broke again and borrowed freely rom sports. Then he was missed from ' his usual haunts for. a few weeks, and during his absence the Texas and Pacific Pacific train was robbed at Gordon. When he next appeared in his nsual Laouta, soon after the robbery, he waa flush. He gambled heavily and setup a harem. - He divided his time between Fort Worth and Dallas, and succeeded in leading astray the young and pretty wife .of a Dallas businessman. The . woman is well connected in norm lex - as. and her conduct preyed upon the mind of her husband to such an extent - that he bad to give np his business. It waa this woman who waa arrested at Derby, La., having inner possession a couple of pistols belonging to Bunch, and $1200. sewed np in an old coat. Bunch waa absent from bis haunts when the Fort Worth and Denver train was robbed; also when the Cisco Bank - Was robbed. His movements were my s - - " and Dallas suspected him for noma time. But he was so careful of his tracks that no amount of surveillance could get him into a snap. He told his acquaintances acquaintances outside the sports that he was engaged engaged in the insurance basin ess. This OFFICERS COWED. During the Dallas fair two years ago. soon after the Benbrook robbery, Bunch - was huh nee ted of being connected with that crime. United States Marshal Ca - . bell instructed his deputy, Lum Johnson, Johnson, of Gainesville, to arrest him. : Johnson approached Bunch one night at the Glen Lea saloon and, with an apologetic air, said he had to arrest him. In an instant Bunch had the deputy deputy covered with a pistol, and he announced announced that General Cabell and his whole staff of deputies were not able to arrest him. and they made no effort after that. Bunch remained around town for a week or more. About six or seven weeks ago Bunch left these parts. Those who knew him well, especially especially the sporting fraternity, scanned the papers every morning for an account of a train robbery. All the recent big robberies timed so nearly with Bunch's absence from town that .observant citizens had long ago drawn conclusions. When the big robbery near New Orleans was announced everybody asked: "Where is Buncht" Bunch was well known at Tex arkana. 1 our or nvo years ago. when he waa yet playing respectable, he was engaged In some shady operations In Arkansas. He was arrested by the city marshal of Texarkana and a pistol taken from him. The marshal fed him to the calaboose calaboose and as he was putting him in. Bunch drew another pistol he had concealed, concealed, covered the marshal, made him enter the calaboose, then looked him np and aeparted. This was a specimen of. Bunch's way of doing business. He ;ws a bad man. perfectly fearless and . always as cool as a cucuin ber. His body was fall of bullet and knife wounds. For some time after the war he waa engaged in outlawry in Tennessee and 'had many a lively encounter with uo(uj juimrm uwaww uiMVUUSk XI WSI when hunted close and badly wounded . that he moved to Louisiana and aattliul down to teaching sohool and to recu - perate.

' He served on the United States grand .and petty juries of Dallas, Tcx and in Cook county he waa highly respected, and. until it waa 'learned tnat he ill - treated his wife, he was one of the most popular men in Gainesville. Letters and telegrams paased between Bunch and some people in Dallas since the robbery, and the knowing ones say lie got away with more than $50,000. The first known of the dead outlaw IS THIS CITY" was about six or eight months before the Northeastern, robbery. He was then living with the above mentioned woman, on Carondelet. near Girod street, and was known aa J. H. Gerard. A complaint waa made to the late Chief Ilennessy by a man named Me - Clendon. residing on Laurel street, that Gerard had sent him a threatning postal postal card. . The matter was placed in the hands of Chief Caster, then a detective, and Detective Pecora, and a few days after they found Gerard on St. Charles street. They sent a friend to him to inform him that if he continued sending any more postal cards they would arrest him and bring him before the Lnited States court. He said McClendon had been talking about him. and if he discontinued discontinued his talk hei would not send any more postal cards, which waa agreed to. Nothing farther was heard of Gerard until the North Eastern train was held up, snd it then came to light that GERARD AND BCXCH WAS. THJB SAME PERSO - V. 7J j. - i The detectives then visited Gerard's residence on Carondelet street, and on the tester of his bed were found four or five f alee mustaches which the officers took charge of. The same officers officers were detailed to watch Bunch's female friend, and when she was Allowed Allowed to depart escorted her to the train, and at last accounts she was conducting conducting a millinery establishment at Galveston, Tex. . t his first arxptorr. Only Four Tears AfO fl Performed His Star Engagemeat The Work of Detective For nearly four years the detectives have been following the trail of Captain Captain Eugene Bunch, the famous train robber, tracing him from place to place, but until Sunday were not able to attempt attempt the arrest. ' Bunch's first appearance as a train robber in the south occurred on the night of Nov. 3, 18S8, when he succeeded succeeded in capturing $38,225. The particulars of the daring robbery are still fresh in the mind of the public. The out - bound train of the New Orleans Orleans and Northeastern Road was stopped stopped at Derby. .Miss. The door of the, express ear waa broken open and the money carried away. Immediately the racinc express com pany placed the best Pinkerton men in toe service on mo case. Bunch was traced to Honey island, where he and his friends remained about two weeks. The daruiar robber then made his wav across the country to Donaldsonville, La. He spent one day in the river side town, and left through' the woods. Although the detectives - were bnt a lew hours behind they could not catch sight of the roboer. Some few days later Bonch made his appearance in El Paso, Tex. It is suspected suspected that he left by the Southern Pacine Boad, being afraid to attempt the - passage by country roads. After remaining in El Paso a few days the desperate man took a wesv bound train for Tombstone. Ariz. . In Tombstone, by some" unknown means. Bunch learned that detectives were - OX HIS TRACK and lost no time in reaching San Carlos, Carlos, where he had a sister He remained with his relative for several days. " His unknown informer telegraphed to move quickly that the detectives were in close pursuit. The fugitive bid his sister sister good by and was not heard of for several weeks. Finally he turned up on the lower coast of California, and the detectives reached the town a few days later, only to find that their man had crossed the borders and waa remaining quietly at a hotel in Quay mas. Mexico. On the arrivals of the detectives the train robber robber was moving rapidly towards the City of Mexico. Bunch left Mexico city about a year and a half ago for Monterey, and, after lingering in that sleepy city for a few hours, continued on to Vera Cruz, Here about a year ago the detectives lost track of their man, and, after several several weeks' of searching ... , QAYE UP THE CHASE. They were removed by the express company. Nothing more was heard of the noted robber until last spring, when he held up the Illinois Central train at Independence, Independence, a small town a few miles above Hammond. The Southern Express Express Company then took up the case and followed the thief to his death. After leaving Independence, Banch and his companions rode across the country to Marion eounty. Miss. The train robber has a wife and one child, a son, about 15 yean of age, in Dallas, Tex. . .... . The woman who accompanied him in the robbery of 1388 was sent back to Tyler, Tex., her home. Banch gave her a good part of the stolen money, $1500 of which was turned over to the express express company. The woman willingly - returned the money, saying that Bunch had given it to her aa her share of the stolen goods. The young detective, Hy. Shirley, who had remained with the desperate gang for a number of months, daring his frequent trips to this city, gave startling tales of the outlaws' actions. When it was plotted to rob Mr. Terrall. in Washington parish, last spring. Shirley came for the purpose of pawning pawning a number of watches. He went to the Southern Express Company and told tl - em of the planned robbery. He said that he would go into the scheme and aid in the robbery of the express company and a creed to pay back the stolen money. Shirley, though a desperate desperate man, was always looked npon as an honest fellow. He made his last trip to this city about a month ago. The gang learned who he really was. and - en nls return to the camp In the lonely wood he was murdered. '"" ARRIVAL OF THE . DETX CTTVE S. Their Experience la the Woods ia Bearcht of the Oatlaw Hop - good In Arrest. The train bearing Detectives Jackson and Summers, with the train robber Hopgood, was due at 7:05 last night, but did not arrive until 7:40 o'clock. Long before that time quite a number of people began assembling at the Illinois Illinois Central Depot to catch a glimpse of the prisoner. When the train hove in sight a general general rush was made to meet it by the crowd. ' ' ' ' The prisoner, who was handcuffed and accompanied by his captors, - finally stepped out of the coach amid the crowd and it was with difficulty that the trio eould reach the baggage - room, where, they - awaited the arrival of a cab, and were then driven to police headquarters. On their arrival they were met by Captain Barrett, who conducted conducted them into Chief Caster's office. Dectlve Summers informed ChieJ G aster that he desired to have his prisoner locked np in the station FOB THE KIOXT. The chief informed him that there were plenty of good cells in the new i'ail, and he could keep him there as ong as he desired. whereupon the detective detective replied that he only wanted him held for thenighL The prisoner, who wore a black slouch hat, black mustache and side whiskers, looked tired and worn out, and had the appearance more of a tramp than a train robber. Detective Summers finally removed the handcuffs, and when the order was given to Turnkey fierci to lock the prisoner up, the latter in pleading tones asked Detectiyo Summers if he would see him in the - fnonunK. and the detective replied that he would. The prisoner was then searched, and on his person waa found a pocketknife, a small amount of money and some to - he officers stated that they were EMPLOYED BT THE SOCTHEX2 XXPSXSS COMPAXT. i io run down Buncl - nd - his gang.

The house is owned by Rebecca Sheridan and stands on a place known as the muster grounds. The officers and three men they had with them surrounded the house in the rear, apd after making a reconnoisance, became convinced that there was no one in the place. They now began to search for Bunch and Hopgood, and' while looking in a little clearing towards towards the creek discovered. Bunch there AT THE EDGE OF THE WOODS They immediately scaled the fence and then the gate and ran down to him and commanded him to surrender. He was somewhat startled at beiug discovered discovered and hesitated, and from appearances appearances did not know whether to run or shoot, but finally . started to run. He only went a few paces when he wheeled around. 4 raised his rifle to his shoulder and fired two shots at the officers and posse, bnt without effect., . The latter thereupon fired at him, the first shot striking him in the back of the head, while VOUR OTHER BCXLETS pierced him in the back. He ran a short distance further, when he reeled and fell, and as he did his rifle, a 45 - caliber Winchester.was discharged and the bullet lodged in the ground. About the same time Bunch fell Hop - good, who had not been seen, made his appearance.. and as he did the officers and men leveled their rifles at him.

Bunch stopped at his house three or four weeks. He next met him the day before yesterday, and Bunch said he was glad to see him. . He proposed proposed to him last March to rob the train and asked him if he would like to go into a money - making speculation. speculation. Bunch told him, he was an outlaw outlaw and was going to rob the Illinois Central train and would like to have him (Hopgood) go with him. Hopgood said he would go if Bnnch did the robbery. They got on their horses and Bunch left him at Newsom's and went to Hammond, Hammond, where he boarded the train and rode to Newsom's milL He took no part in the robbery,' bnt stood guard on the outside of the train, Bonch aoing the work. - Duncan did not participate in the robbery, and Sartly raised him. He had a rifle, but id not point it at any one. He did set point it at - the conductor or fireman. All he got was - $100 in . cash, which Bunch gave hurt.

He was born and raised in Marion county., He surrendered, throwing up his hands as a signal of yielding, when Bunch was killed. SHTRLTNG SHREWDNESS. 4 Plans to Capture the Outlaw, Though Well Planned, Miscarry. " The wisdom .of Superintendent Fisher's choice in selecting Shirling soon became apparent, for he proved not only steadfast and true, but decidedly decidedly enthusiastic in the pursuit, as well as zealous and shrewd. Several plans were arranged to capture Banch." red - handed, so to speak, that is, in the very consummation of a train robbery. No bass than three plans were arranged to rob trains, but all of them failed from one cause or another. Shirling was in constant fcommunica - tion with the express officials and detectives, meeting them at the Southern Southern Express 'office in this city. He frequently brought watches and iewelry, a part of the plunder secured in - the most recent robbery of the Illinois Illinois Central train, and these articles he would deposit with the Southern Express officials, receiving snch sums " ,.TT8. thought probable could be realized by pawning them. Shirling to carry out the deception, would then obtain false pawn tickets and bring them back , with the money to Bonch, thna acting as ah intermediary and agjnt, The noted outlaw trusted himim - nlicitly, yet .before he reached that state of mind he. it aaneara. deter mined v to test his fidelity by making Aim commit a Eyb oery. tnat 01 oingio - ton's store, in Washington parish. Shirling almost gave up the job then, and told Superintendent Fisher of bis resolution not to participate in the robbery, which would bo tantamount to 4 , . ABAXDOS1XO HIS FCRPOSE. " Fisher, however, persuaded him. and upon a solemn promise to refund to Singleton the money stolen, Shirling rather reluctantly consented to engage in the robbery. , As sooq, aa this was accomplished, Shirling presented himself to Superintendent Superintendent Fisher and handed him his share of the plunder. Fisher then, agreeably to his promise, sent Singleton the entire sqm of which he had been robbed. Bunch had spies in the city, and plenty of them and was thoroughly cognizant of almost every move made by the detectives. In fact Superintendent Superintendent Superintendent - Fisher had ample demonstra tion of the ancient adage: Shirlins'a mission was known to but one or two men, yet one day it was spoken of in front of the St. Charles Hotel and the next day it went to Ponnd's house in StTammany parish, and that same afternoon Bunch was in possession of Stirling's real motives for joining his band. v . The murder of Shirling was not long delayed after that. M One of the plans for the capture of Bnnch waa to have a yosse of determined determined men armed to the teeth on a train which was to be held up at a given point by Bunch. Colonel Hop - good and Shirling. The robbers were to be taken in the act and. if possible, BUNCH WAS TO BE CAPTURED alive, if not dead. Eight picked men selected to constitute the posse, and Winchester rifles, arms and ammunition ammunition were purchased at Baldwin's hardware hardware store and placed in a box for future future use. Among the elght men selected was one man from Summit. Miss., who, soon after Bunch's robbery of the Northeastern Northeastern train, had placed himselt in communication with the express com - fany and had offered his services, hey were not accepted, and as time passed on and Bunch waa not captured, he bluntly informedLthe officials that he did not believe thai they wanted to capture the outlaw. , When the posse was organized he was one of the first, sen enlisted, and he was almost - SJ " . BESIDE HIMSELF WITH JOT when he waa told of his appointment. Some of the 'men were scoured in Jackson. Miss., and others in Aberdeen, Miss. Everything was ready for the attempted robbery of the train. The posse was on board and everything appeared appeared to promise success, bnt the train passed the point agreed npon without molestation.. A few days afterwards Shirling reported reported the cause. A violent rain storm had come up and marred the plot. The next time Bunch was ready Shirling was not, and the latter made some valid excuse for postponing the robbery for a week or two, which was agreed upon. . Before the time arrived Shirling was dead. - After the murder of Shirling the Winchester rifles were shipped to Osyka, Miss., and then distributed to the posse. It was from this point that the expedition set fourth for Washington Washington parish, the distance being about forty miles across country to the eastward. eastward. - ' "; ADDITIONAL. RIVER NEWS.
