TWcondiiclor was informed that they were under coninvinil of an official of the county, who had rocoived word that an attempt would be made *o rob tbe St. Louis express et a lonely H'«it ft little lw>i than two miles east of Mi-< uri City. One of the olflcors got Into the cab of the engine with the engineer and flreitmn, nud the others distributed them* selves through the train. Oooloy's Ink?, a fishing resort, one of tho lonoliegt joints on ' the road In winter tlnto, was the- plaro where the altock «-R3 to be limila. None otthe passenger i of tho train wore uotlflud of tha dan- gar. At 9:"0, as the point of attack was neared, a red %hf, wns soon gleaming ahead. As the train slcmixl up, tbe engineer saw three mnskoil iniiii, firmed witb rifles, standing on the track. "Qol off tborAj 11 said the leader of the three men to tho engineer.' Morsey climbed ilown out of the cab. Just as he reached tho ground the officer in the cab pointed his shot-^un out of the window anil flrod. Whether he hit tbe loader of the band of robbers or not ho could not afterward tell, but both he and the engineer thought he had. As soon as tbe shot wriH flreil, he and Money dropped down out of sight The shot from tho cab was answered with shot* from tbe guns of tho three robbers, which rattled about the engine, but did no harm. The three men retired in a demoralliod state. As they moved bnck apart of the posse-came up from the woixls and opened flre on them. These men had been gent out from Missouri City In advance of tho train, and concealed thorn- sol ven, to he in readiness whenever they should be n&nded. . About twenty shots were 'exchanged, tho men on the train joining In tho pursuit, The track was then examined and found clear, and tbe train pulled out The sheriff and posse, however, remained In pursuit of the robber*, finally bagging their gams. Throe of the robbers were captured, including their leader, Barney Sweeney, who wns found to be wounded. He bud uttouiptnd to oscnpo by crawling Into the wuo<ls,and fought, desperately before his surrender. Sweeney has a long and brilliant record of crime.
