Pas sengers who arrived today at Laredo from the" south report one of the boldest train holdups that has occurred ill some months, with the killing of eight persons and the robbery of many thousands ef dollars in the new Carranra currency. The tralh with the private car of Charles A. Douglas, counsel for Carranza In the United States, attached at the rear, left Mexico City at t o'clock on the afternoon of Thursday last. Between yueretaro and Empalme Gonzales at 2:30 Of th next morning tne passengers were awakened by a sudden jar and a terrific detonation, followed by a volley of rifle shots. Outside the cars was a party of bandits shouting "vtvA Villa," ahd firing continuously to frighten the passengers. The engine and four cars were derailed and the engineer, hreman, helper .and Ave other persons riding on the tender were Instantly killed. The bandits entered the second class car in front and worked their way toward, the rear, robbing ail passenger. A paymaster of the El Oro Mining company lost 136,000 in the new CarrahsA currency and an American named Hill lost) $3000 In gold. There were aboard two lieutenant colonels and two major paymasters of the Carranza forces, but they were not recognized by the bandits, as they had removed their Uniforms and all Insignia of rank. One of them even feigned death and lay full length in the aisle while the bandits were robbing the other passengers. Two prisoners guarded bv eight soldiers were released, leaving with the robbers. The arms of the soldiers were taken from them, as they made no resistance. No other passengers aboard the train offered resistance, fearing instant death. The express car is said ,to have contained 1,000,000 pesos In the new currency, but owing to the desire of the bandits to get away hurriedly or from ignorance of the contents of the car was not broken open, although it left the track and rolled down the embankment. A strange (feature of the attack was that the private car, containing Judge Douglas and his party, was not molested In any way by the bandits. MEXICANS PLAN RAILWAYS. Orgsnlit Hundred Million.
