Special The body of Underwood one of the gang of highwaymen that attempted to hold up the Cincinnati Southern .express train was found late this evening in the woods a short distance from the scene of the shooting by a farmer. The dead man was lying on his right side with his left hand across his forehead while his weapons were missing. The body was riddled with buckshot the great er portion of the load having struck the would-be robber in the abdomen. Underwood was the man who was shot by Detective Allgood of Chattanooga After the officers fired the shot Underwood fell The officers thinking .him dead started in search of him. They discovered he had escaped to the woods. He went only a short distance before dropping the second time and the supposition is that he lived but a very few minutes. The remains are now at the home of the farmer who made the ghastly discovery and will be taken to Greenwood In the morning. True Story of the Plot. The true story of the plot to rob the train has just come to light. Two months ago Sam Frailer a worthless sort of a fellow who resides near here was ap preached by Jerry Morrow who asked him to go into the train-robbing business. -Frazier asked him his plan and Morrow said that the way to do would be to wreck the train and get the money. Frailer said he would think the matter over and let him know later. In the meantime the Morrows and Underwood arranged to wreck and rob the train by putDng crossties on the track. Frazier reported the occurrence to the railroad officials. Detective Griffin instructed him to go ahead and tell the men that he was "with them. He was afraid he would be arrested for detaining the malls but was Informed that he would be taken care of In this respect He was told to persuade the bandits to hold the train up. and not wreck it Frazler Morrow 'Underwood Sam Johnson and the .unknown person met by agreement near the scene of the holdup. Frazier Was Suspected. Frazier made a remark which caused the other members to believe he was going to betray them. They sent Frailer to Greenwood after some whisky and then talked the matter over. When he returned they told him that he was a coward and threatened to kill him. He 'had told the detectives that he would be the first man to enter the car but the other robbers would not have It this way and made him flag the train. Frazier turned up here last night but before morning he left for parts unknown with three of the horses owned by the robbers. He was afraid that the friends of the dead men would kill him. The Inquest In all cases will be held In the morning and whether the officers will be arrested for the killing depends on the verdict Bodiei of the Dead Bandits. The remains of Jerry and Thomas Hoc. row were today turned over to A. New a brother-in-law of Jerry.after being placed In a coffin. New secured a wagon and had the remains taken to the late home about ten miles from the scene of the attempted robbery and they were buried at the family burying grounds this afternoon. Son of a Well Known Man. Will F. Martin who was taken from the tender of the engine was supposed to have been a member of the gang but proved to be a tramp from Alleghany Pa. His father Is superintendent of the Westinghouse Electrical Company's plant and "ha telegraphed here concerning his son. Young Martin is In a precarious con. dltion and the doctors do not expect him to live until morning. The abdominal cavity and Intestines have been" penetrated by a ball that cannot be located. The Hen Who Are Mining. A report has reached here that the two men who were still at large Johnson and an unknown were seen in a wagon seven miles from the scene of the- robbery this morning. They informed a friend that they intended to hide In a cave In the mountains and the officers .here think that they can locate them.
