S. Marshul Lootnls, who was a passenger on board, is reported to havo shot and killed Cole Young, one f tho robbers, directly after tho train was stopped. ' Young's companions thereupon began shooting indiscriminately. After terrifying tho passengers anil train hands into submission the robbers cut the oxprefas car and engine from tho train and ran them up tho track a few hundred yards. An explosion followed and It is supposed that the express car safo was blown open. A upeclal train has been dispatched from this city to tho sccno of the hold up.
