THE TIMES, NEW BLOOM FIELD, PA., OCTOBER 30, 1877.
Story of the Big Springs Robbery.
A gentleman who was one of ttie pas
sengers on the train that was robbod on
tbe Union Pacific fond at Big Bprlngs,
Wyoming, latoly, sends tbe following racy
account of his experience :
We rolled up to Big Springs depot as
usual. The night was beautiful and the
moon shone brightly. As the train stop
ped, I went out on the platform of tbe car,
where I found an Omaha merchant, and we
stood and talked there about two minutes,
when there suddenly appeared before us
on the ground four masked mon, with a
cocked revolver In each hand aimed direct
ly at us. Atj first I thought it was some
joke, but when the devils ordered us into
the car " quick," and to hold up our
hands and make no "break," and called
us hard names, I concluded it meant
" business," and another look at those
eight revolvers, which just about that time
looked like mountain howitzers, convinced
me in less than a week's time that the
evening air was uuhoalthy, and we had
business iuside Immediately. '
In other words, I got, quick. As I closed
the car door two shots were fired at my
friend, bitting him twico in the hand, and
taking off about a foot of the door casing.
That satisfied him, and bo took au inside
berth tolerably lively. SVell, they sta
tioned one man at the front end of tbe car,
one at the rear, each with two pistols, and
to each of the remaining rulliaus was al
lotted the pleasant task of robbing a row
of seals, which they proceeded to do each
after his own original stylo.
The first man robbed was a drummer
from a Now York house. lie was ordered
to "stand up, hold up his bauds, keep his
mouth shut," and the search commenced.
They took from him $ 180 and a gold watch
valued at $300. The next man had only
one arm. The gentlemanly villain that
was searching him happened to notice the
empty sleeve :" II ," said ho, "have
you only got one arm ?"
"Only one, sir," replied the man.
" "Well, take back your stuff we don't
want jour money. Sit down aud keep
It was a rich scene about forty men of
us sitting there quietly to let four masked
scalawags go through us that way, but
what could we do ? Not a revolver in the
car except one, aud that at the bottom of a
valise. There was no use for any one to
make a start ; there were several ladies in
the cars. The two men at tbe end of the
cars covered everybody nearly with two
cocked revolvers, liable to go off" at any
moment, for their hands trembled violent
ly, showing that they were themselves ex
cited. So we obeyed orders to a certain
extent, but not fully.
I didn't. I had my hands up the most
of the time, except when I wanted to use
them down, because it was a sort of relief
to my arms to change them from their
usual position, but I found time to put my
pocket-book with $400 in it down behind a
ladies' work-basket, who occupied the next
seat, after doing which I walked back
I four seats and managed to got my watch
and chain off and down behind my valise
and the car floor, after which little per
formance my hands were up, and up good
and steady. I then had nothing on my
person that I thought the thieves would
take except about ten dollars in coin in
one pocket, and I finally worked up a
scheme to beat them out of that. The
man who was robbing the seats opposite
me was much more expert than the other,
and got away ahead of him. After he had
passed about four seats from me the
other way, I got up leisurely and crossed
the isle, and took a seat with a man who
bad been robbed, and the villain whose
plain duty it was to rob me, overlooked me
entirely, so I was not touched, and was the
only man In the car who was not " gone
Caught in His Own Trap.
We copy the following from one of
our exchanges : Henry Landis of Landis
valley, suspected that some one was re
lieving him of his corn without the proper
remuneration. He made a remark to this
effect to man who had occasion to be about
his premises, and he suggested that he
should set a trap for the thief. This was
agreed upon, and the proposer of the plan
assisted in arranging the trap. Mr. Landis
afterward unsuspectingly changed the po
sition of it, and the next morning, upon
going to see what his luck was, found the
very same man who had been his kind as
sistant firmly clasped by the trap and un
able to release himself. He fully compre
hended his humiliating situation and asked
Mr. Landis to put an end to his miserable
existence by shooting him. This request,
of course, was not complied with. He
was, however, released without being pros
ecuted. - tW The body of a drowned man, sup
posed to be that of John Ilenn, of Brook
lyn, was found about eighteen months ago,
and buried with considerable expense by
bis family. Mrs. Barbara' Schwartz, a
sister of Mrs. Henn, administered on his
estate. The bank where he had his money
deposited refused to pay until they had
better proof of bis demise. A motion was
made for an order to compel tbe bank to
' pay, and then evidence was produced that
Henn was confined on Ward's Island.
