robbery from the published accounts.
five packages of *190 each from Chi-
cago to Canadian, and that each pack-
age was represented to contain f -000.
A special agent of the express com-

ages, and he telegraphed -Sie rill Tom

meet him at the depot to help guard
the treasure, The train arrived at Ca
nadian at 8 o’clock p. nV. and the slier-
ill' was waiting for it at tlie depot.
No robbers showed up at the time,
nor is there any evidence that a rob-
bery was contemplated.
About 9:30 that night, the sheriff
walked out of the depot onto the plat-
form and saw three men skulking
around. One of them was walking
down the track, whom the sheriff com-
manded to halt. No aUenliou being
paid to the command, the officer re-
pealed it. threatening to shoot if the
order was nut obeyed, ihe mau turned
and opened lire, which the sheriff re-
turned. During the fusiiado a mau
standing behind the sheriff shot him in
the back. The officer fell and one oi
his assailants remarked, “We've got the
s—u of a b—h, let's go,” and the men
departed. Sheriff McGee lived until
the next day. He thought he recog-
nized one of the men as Wm. Ander-
