Through the quick wit of the motormnn of a Coviua electric car three highwaymen were foiled iu an attempt to hold up the oar and rob its passengers Monday night, just outside the limits of Los Angeles. As he was about to stop the car in response to the signal of the trio, the man at the controller discovered that the fellows were masked. Quickly releasing the brakes that bad been set, and turning the full current through the motors, he sent the car ahead at top speed and the robbers were left in the dark at the side of the track.' As soon as the car reached the Pacific Electric station at Sixth and Main streets, the officials of the company were notified and the crew of an outbound Coviua car was advised to be on the lookout for the highwaymen. Evidently satisfied that their purpose had become known and that the next car would be prepared for them the robbers gave up their mission and made tracks into the country. Hail- road detectives who went out on the next car to pass that way could find co trace of the trio. It is believed, however, that these highwaymen are the ones who entered the postoffloe at Puente the same such speed that neither conductor nor motormau could gather any but a hazy description of the three robbers aud it was of no use to the detectives who went out on the next oar in quest of the baud. It is supposed that the three nimi drove to the spot with the intention of robbing the car, then to proceed to Pueute, a drive of but a few miles, and rob the pofltolHce. Failure to stop the car apparently did not discourage them,'.for it was only a few hours afterward that the Pueute office was entered and robbed. Puente Postofflce Robbed. Safe crackers entered the postoffKie at Puente Monday night, blew open the safe, secured 9150 iu cash and stamps and made their escnpe. A curious feature of the affair is that,- although explosive enough wns used to thoroughly smash the snfo, some at the picoes being burled across the room, no one heard tho report. Nothing was known of tho robbery until Postmaster George Cross opened the oflioo Tuesday morning. A Southern Pacific switch engine puffed to and fro near the building tho greater part of tho night, and the noisn it, mndo probably drowned the noise of tho explosion. While most of the loss will fall upon the Federal government, some of the stolen money belonged to Mys. Green, a sister of Cross, and bis (Assistant in the office. The robjbers left behind a crowbar and some J spikes.
