Two unidentified bank robbers, burdened with 10,000 loot from the Red River National Bank, were shot to death as they left the bank about noon todav by Ranger " Captain Tom Hickman, Ranger Stuart Stanley, and Constable B. Q. Ivy, who lay In wait In a building across the street, in response to a tip The robbers had placed the money In a suitcase and had reach ed the sidewalk when the officers ran out and began shooting. Both fell mortally wounded. Seven people were In the bank when the men entered, giving com mands "stick 'em up, high!" The robbers raked up all the cash ln eight, between $10,000 and $15,000, stuffed It in the suitcase and start ed to flee. - - Officers "Tipped Off." Capt. Hickman and his aides had a tip in advance that a daylight robbery would be attempted and posted themselves nearby. The persons in the bank were marched before the desperadoes - drawn pistols to the back of the room, where they were forced to lie flat on the floor while one of the men took the money, the other covered the party. T. E. Williams, assistant cashier of the bank, said that five officials, Including himself, and two cus tomers were in the building when the robbers entered with pistols dis played. Giving the "stick up" order, he said, the men forced them back and made them lie In front of a vault where books were kept. While one kept guard over them, the other rifled the money vault and then all the drawers at the teller's cages, raking it into a suitcase. "They then backed out, keeping us covered, making for the auto mobile they had left with the engine . running, Williams related. Source Of "Tip" Unknown. How Captain Hickman obtained his tip had not been learned this afternoon, although he has been working out of Fort Worth and Dallas for several months, trying to ferret out what he believed to be a gang of ex-convicts who were perpetrating numerous north Texas bank robberies. Hickman worked with Sheriff Schuyler Marshall at Dallas for sev eral days following tlie robbery of the Irving State bankIAug. 25. It is believed his investigation of that affair unearthed cluesj leading to fore-warning of the attempt here. Information came to the captain. it is understood, that a certain bank was to be robbed in north Texas on a given date. It now seems ap parent that this information related to the bank here. A noticeable characeristic of the recent north Texas holdups which Hickman is known to have studied is that all have been staged around the noon hour. Hickman has confided to newspapermen that he be lieved fugitives from various prison farms have formed a bank robbing band. He also believes that several women have been confederates. -- Great Excitement. The robbery and shooting threw the town, which has about 4000 inhabitants, into Intense excitement. , One version told on the streets im mediately after the shooting was that A. M. Graves, the bank's cash ier, and others In the building at the time were forced to enter the bank's vault. Assistant Cashier Williamson later said however, that those inside merely were forced to the floor in front of a vault. The two robbers were about middle-age and an hour after the robbery no one here had Identified them. Cap tain Hickman was reported to have sent for persons who might be able to identify them. The exact amount of money they had in the suitcase would be determined only by a count and check up of what was missing from the bank, it was said. The bank is one of the more prosperous in this part of the state. THE STATESMAN'S Daily Almanac U. S. BUREAU REPORTS . Austin temperatures (from 8 a. m. Wednesday at 8 a. m.
