Three Masked Men, Heavily Armed and Supplied With
Dynamite Compel Engineer to Stop Train East of
Kamloops���Small Amount of Registered Mail Stolen
and Valuable Parcel Overlooked���Robbers Disappear
in Darkness.
The C   P.  It.  wesi  bound passenger
I  , (press    train   wns    held   up  five
miles w.st of Ducks and thirteen miles
ol  Kamloops at   11.26 lasi night
In line, masked men, and a quantity
���Ti.-red mail all addressed lo
Victoria, was taken from lhe mail car,
I'll, robbers, il Ls supposed, boarded
lhe train al Shuswap, which was the
I Lop east of the scene of the accident. When the train wa.s live miles
���lib side of Ducks they climbed from
Hi. leader of Ihe engine inlo the cab,
ind covering both engineer and flre-
��� mu ordered them to slop the train.
The engineer took the matter as a joke
.u,.|  ran   the  train   two  mile?   tnrtherl
before h. became convlnc, d tin,, 1,"
was ,,p against the real thing and obeyed the orders of the bandits.
Th.- lien wen- all heavily armed
ami curried will, then, a large quantity of dynamite with which, i, is
presumed, they in,ended  to blow up
Ci" mail and express ears if necessary.
Wl,.,, the train came to a standstill
ihe robbers uncoupled the engine, and
one of them accompanied the engineer
nnd fireman aboul half a mil. further
wesl while the other two looted the
mail car.
The mail clerk was taken completely by surprise but showed considerable pluck and presence of mind. He
saw that it  was useless to attempt to
pm up n fighi so he resorted tosti ���
it and succeeded ln convincing the
bandits Hun the only mail of any value
in the car wns seven registered letters
addressed ,o Vieloria which they had
easily found.
All lh.- Vancouver registered mail
and a parcel containing in the neighborhood of $1,1,1,11,, was l.ft undisturbed.
The robbers disappeared In the dark'
ness, aud descriptions of them are
very unsatisfactory.
A suspect who rode into Revels,,ike
on a ullnd  baggage car was arrested
Ilie,,- today, but it ls not thought that i
he cm, in  any way be identified with
the rohhery.
Athens, May 9.��� The British fleet consisting of
21 warships is lying at Pireaus with steam up. They
will be further augmented today by the arrival of
the second cruiser squadron commanded by Rear
Admiral Prince Louis of Battenburg.
Constantinople, May 9. ���Frequent conferences
have been held during the last few days between the
members of the cabinet in connection with the
Anglo-Turkish dispute. An official of the foreign
office today had a long interview with Sir Nicholas
O'Connor, the British ambassador but up to the present there are no indications to show what course the
Porte will decide to pursue. The general opinion
here is that the Turkish troops will evacuate Tabah
before the British ultimatum expires.

The arbitrary detention of a German sailing ship
the Odysseus by the Turkish authorities recently
threatened friction between Turkey and another
European power but the energetic action of the German ambassador quickly solved the difficulty.
The Odysseus was discharging her cargo at
Chibuklu when she was boarded by the authorities
add removed to Kavak where she was anchored beneath the batteries of the Turks who falsly claimed
that the vessel had explosives on board.
The ambassador protested urgently but unavail-
ingly whereupon he took a few sailors from the German guardship here, the Lorely, boarded the Odysseus, hoisted the diplomatic flag and took the ship
from under the guns of Kavak to her dock at
Chibuklu where guard was kept over her while she
completed the discharge of her cargo. On returning
to the embassy the ambassador found a state councillor awaiting him with apologies and explanation.
The records available do not refer to a German
sailing vessel named Odysseus but there is a German
steamer of that name and she was in the Mediterranean recently.
New York, May 9.���Plans have been
mud,, lo bold the Funeral today of
Charles L. Bpler tbe Stati a island
business man and confidential agent
of H. H. Rogers of ihe Standard Oil
Trust, who was .sho. In so
mysterious a manner thut the authorities cannot determine whether ie was
shot by a burglar or committed suicide. The bullel which caused Mr.
Spier's death had not been located and
the authorities desisted from an attempt to find it because Mrs. Spier
objected to the mutilation of her husband's body.
Authorities Differ.
The authorities differ as to whether
the bullet came from Mr. Spier's own
revolver and il is understood that District Attorney Kenney, of Staten Island, will refuse to allow the funeral
to proceed until a complete autopsy
has been made. He said today: "I believe the bullet that killed Mr. Spier
shoulil be found in order to determine
whether or not. be was killed by his
own  revolver."
A report was current today that
there was a scene at a prominent
Staten Island club recently which resulted in a request that Mr. Spier
leave the club. The cause of the disturbance is unknown.
Mrs. Spier's Story.
Police officials who have been Investigating say that the evidence indicates that Spi.-r committed suicide.
Mrs. Spier informed the police
that Spier had bfi his bed chamber lo
go to the dining room in search of
burglars and that she heard shots.

MUR3ER OF "jflbiilJA"
Enemies of  Holy   Roller Prophet Will
Present M   ohell  With Gold
Seattle. May I- ���George Mitchell,
the slayer of Frail Edmund Creffleld.
the self-styled "Jo. hua," leader of the
band of fanatics calling themselves
the "Holj Hollers, is to be presented
with a band- inudy engraved gold
,,, dal as a reward for shooting to
dealh Creffleld on First avenue yes-
,erday morning. When the medal i
]ir.���seated Mitchell probably will bc
the os_y man in the country who has
has Iks* so honored for a murder.
The donors are to be a committee
of respectable citizens of Corvallis,
Oregon, where Creffleld and his band
created SO much excitement and indignation three years ago. ' The man
who brought the word to Seattle that
the gold medal is forthcoming is O
V. Hurt, a Corvallis resident, and the
father of Maude Hurt Creffleld, the
ibad "prophet's" widow.
Hurt arrived in Seattle this morn
ing, and lo officers whom be .saw nt
Ihe depot lie announced that he had
come- here for the purpose of taking
rare of his daughter, bul mainly to
jnake arrangements for the defense
of George Mitchell, who has been removed l��� the county jail lo await
trial on the charge of first degree mur-
Joy   Greets   Death   News.
(). V. Hurl  declares that, as soon as
the new- reached Corvallis thai Creffleld had been killed by Mitch .: a
committee of citizens al once started
a subscription for the purpose of raising money to presenl Mitchell with
a medal and to hire a good criminal
lawyer to defend him.
"Mitchell's   friends,  or   more  especially the good  citizens who were opposed to Creffield's immoral teachings,
will go iln- the limit of their resources
to defend the young man," said Hurl.
"We  do  not  propose,  if  il   is  in  our
power   ��� i   prevent,   to  have   Mitchell
punished   for  an  act  which  deserves
commendation.    It   would  havo  been'
belter hnd Ihat  fraud's life been end-:
ed lnig ago.    There would have been
fewer unhappy families in Corvallis." j
1 Im-i    ays that the minute the news
of Creffield's death  reached the Ore- j
g���n town that it spread like wildfire
and that there was universal joy. For
weeks   persons  In  Corvallis  who had I
been    disgraced through the influence
that Creffleld had on members of their
families,  bad  been   searching  for  the
Holy Roller leader. He had been
driven from one town to another and
fnr a month lynching was threatened.
It was generally believed that il was
only a question of time until some
citizen feeling the outrage thai bad
been    perpetrated upon    him, would
lake   lhe   law   Into   his  own   hands.
Others Sought Fanatic's Life.
"Mitchell's well-aimed shot spared
dthers the trouble of sending Creffleld t��� an eternity thai he deserved,"
said   Hun   In   substance.
Hurt's entire family al one time
was under the spell of ibis religious
fanatic. It was at Hurl's home in Cor
vallis that some of the disgraceful
scenes of the Holy Rollers were enacted. Hun himself was once under
ihe influence, bul it didn't take him
long to throw It off and since then he
has been one of Crettield's mosi pronounced enemies.
Burnt  Offerings.
At one time during the orgies of
the Holy Rollers, all the furniture in
the Hurt house wa.s piled in a heap
in the front yard and set on lire by
Creffleld, who announced thai it was
a burnt offering to God; that religious
people had no right to have furniture
for furniture was a luxury. At another
time live cats and dogs were offered
up in the fires while Creffleld went
through his incantations and worked
himself and his followers into a frenzy
of emotion.
A short lime prior to tho date Ihat
ihe Corvallis people captured Creffleld and tarred and feathered him, be
sucoeded in inducing Maude Hurt, O.
V. Hurt's daughter, to marry him.
Creffleld hid in the woods after he
was tarred and under cover of the
nighl returned to Ibe Hurt house
where he crawled beneath the floor
and remained a week, where be was
fed   by  Mrs.  Creffleld.
Sent  to  Prison.
Later Creffleld .sough, refuge in the
house of B, E. Starr al Portland. During his slay there Ihe husband of
Mrs. Starr filed a charge against him
that led to his sentence of two years
iu ihe penitentiary. Mrs. Creffleld
in the mean,in,.' had become insane
and was senl to an asylum aboul
the same iim.- that  Creffleld went  to
Salem prison. Mrs. Starr is a sister
of Qeoorge Mitchell, the slayer.
.Mitchell also claims thai Creffleld enticed his younger sister Esther into
the ranks of lbe Holly Rollers and
disgraced ber for life. For these iwo
nels   .Mitchell   swore   revenge.
After a lime Mrs. Creffleld was dis-
livery." Tbe letters had been removed from the envelopes. They
came trom Albany, Waldporl ami
other towns in Oregon, and it is be-
I,,,,., thai Creffleld used ihe name
��� ���]���:. Sandel" to throw followers off his
track.    It is supposed the letters were
from  the  few  followers of bis creed
charged from the insane asylum. Shel which he bad gathered together after
