PUEBLO, Colo., Feb. 6.—The western express on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe road, train No. 1, bound for Colorado and California, was held up one mile west of Sylvia, Reno county, Kan., by four masked men, who signaled danger. Two of the robbers covered the engineer and fireman, and two went to the express car. For some reason they failed to effect an entrance and then went to the coaohes and made the passengers give, up all their val uables. The train was held for an hour and ten minutes by the robbers, who then rode south. Conductor McGrath ran the train back to Sylvia and gave the alarm, and Sheriff Patton was on the train with his posse in a few minutes. The men were believed to be members of the Stafford band of desperadoes. One of the men who went through the train is described as 5 feet V inches tall. Ho wore a wide rimmed gray hat.

THE TEXT OP THE DOCUMENT Offenses In Ireland Have Been Iiess Frequent During the Past Year Than Ever Before—Some New Measures to Be Brought Forward. LONDON, Feb. 6.—The fourth session of the Thirteenth parliament of Queen Victoria opened at 2 o'clock this afternoon. A large number of members of parliament earlier in the day visited the house of commons in order to seoure seats. Previous to the opening of the session the lord ohamberlain, Lord Carrington, accompanied by ten yeomen of the guard, four marshals, etc., and a number of policemen, made the customary Guy Fawkes search of the vaults of the houses of parliament in order tg see that no preparations had been made to blow up the buildings. In the house of lords Lord Welby moved the address in reply to the speech from the throne, and Lord Battersea seconded the motion. In the house of commons Mr. Hobhouse moved the address, and Mr. Holland seconded it. The queen's speech was as follows: "My lords and gentlemen, my relations with the foreign powers remain friendly and on a satisfactory footing. An agreement has been concluded, after prcn tracted negotiations, between my government and tbat of the French republic for the settlement of the frontier between my colony of Sierra Leone and the neighboring French possessions. "I regret to say that the .war between China and Japan still continues. I have maintained a close and cordial understanding with the powers interested in those regions, and I shall lose no favorable opportunity of promoting a peaceful termination of the contest. The Armenian Matter. "In consequence of reports which have reached my government of excesses committed by Turkish troops, regular or irregular, on Armenians in the district of Asia Minor, I thought it right, in conjunction with other powers, to make representations to the porte. The sultan has declared his intention of severely punishing any of his officers or soldiers who have been guilty of such acts and has sent a commission to conduct an investigation on the spot. Delegates from the powers which have consuls at Erzerum will acoompany this (sommission. "Gentlemen of the house of commons, I am happy to observe the striking fact that in Ireland offenses of all kinds against the law have sunk during the past year to the lowest level hitherto marked in the official records. Proposals will be submitted to you for remedying defects which experience has brought to light in tho working of the law of landlord and tenant in Ireland and for dealing with certain evicted tenants whose situation still constitutes peril to social order. "A bill will bo presented to you dealing with the church establishment in Wales. Bills will also be submitted for the popular control of the liquor traffic, and the abolition of plural voting, and a provision for the payment of the charges of returning officers at elections." Proposed New Bills. The speech further says: "Bills for the unification of London and facilitating the construction of light railways, which I trust will benefit the rural districts in view of the continued agricultural depression ; a bill for the promotion of conciliation in trade disputes and an amendment to tho factory acts, a bill for the completion of the system of oounty government of Scotland and for further legislation for the crofters will be submitted to you. "I pray that the blessing of God will rest during the year on your arduous and responsible labors.'' Formal business was resumed in the house of commons at 4 o'olock with the swearing in of new members, etc. Tho party leaders were cheered on taking their seats, and the various ministers then gave notice that they would introduce on Thursday next the different bill3 mentioned in the queen's speech. Mr. Hobhouse, who wore court dress, in moving the address in reply to the queen's speech, congratulated the house on the fact that the policy of conciliation of the last three years toward Ireland had produced the happy result of quietude there. , Wales Was There. In the house of lords formal business was resumed at the same hour as the house of commons. The Prince of Wales and the Duke of York were seated on the cross benches. The Earl of Kimberly, the secretary of state for foreign affairs; tho Marquis of Ripon, secretary for the colonies; the Marquis of Salisbury, Lord Monkswell, the Earl of Cadogan and several other former cabinet ministers were present. The attendance was large, and the galleries were crowded by peeresses and their friends. Then, to the surprise of nearly everybody present, the lord high chancellor, Baron Herschell, arose amid profound silence and asked the indulgence of tho house while he roferred to a personal matter. He 6aid that for the past few weeks imputations of misconduct had been made against him, The lord chancellor then proceeded to refer to the newspaper criticisms of his replacing Justice Sir Roland Vaughan Williams from the queen's bench division of the high court of justice to another court, thus preventing him from conducting the proceedings in connection with the winding up of certain publlo companies, and the assignment of Justice Romer to his place. He denied that ha v?as inspired by any up worthy motive. T1I4 Fentons Were Not Burned. PORT REPUBLIC, N. J., Feb. 6.—The report sent out from Atlantic City last night to the effect that W. H.

The Latest Aspfct of the Trolley Trouble in Brooklyn FRANCHISE REVOCATIONS, Host lawyers, In$lnding Mirabeau Towns, Are of Opinion That the Action of Brooklyn's |Aldermen Was Illegal— Qonnelly's Views, BROOKLYN, Commissioner Mc today dismissed by the strikers ton, president Eailroad compani The charge al that he had vio >b. 6. —United States •le, in the federal court, ;he complaint preferred against Benjamin Norths Atlantic Avenue inst Mr. Norton was ,ted the United States postal laws by plfcing United States mail signs on cars tliat'were not carrying mail matter. j It was the general opinion among lawyers today that the action of the board of aldermen yesterday in revoking the franchises of the trolley companies was illegal and would be vetoed by Mayor Schieren. Even the man who drew up the resolution for the aldermen to pass, Lawyer Mirabeau L. Towns, says now that he believes the common council is powerless to revoke the franchise. Mr. Towns is the counsel to the executive oommittee of the strikers. * "It is not common sense to supposo that the aldermen have the right to revoke tha entire franchise of a company,'' said MP Towns. "I drew up the resolution for the aldermen to pass the way Mr. Connelly and the executive committee of the strikers wanted it drawn. May Rcscind "Change of Power." "In my opinion, there is no doubt that the board of aldermen have the right to rescind a former resolution permitting the companies to change their motive power 'from animal to electricity. In the authorities which I furnished to tho aldermen yesterday I showed tbat this has been done five times in Philadelphia. "This, however, does not mean that the aldermen can take the entire franchise from the companies. "I am very much in doubt about the legality of that part of the resolution revoking the franchisa You can't always hold these people in check, and it was done against my advico. '' Had the aldermen simply rescinded the resolution of U:93, which permitted the companies to change their motive power, it would ha^ e been all right." Lawyer S. S. Whitehouse, counsel for the Brooklyn Heights railroad, said tbat the action of the aldermen yesterday was illegal on the face of the resolution passed. "How can any one believe," said he, "that aboard of aldermen may revoke a franchise granted to a corporation after that corporation, acting in good faith, has spent §1,000,000 or more building a railroad? It is impossible. "If the aldermen were permitted bylaw to give a corporation a franchise with a string tied to it and then pull it back after the company has built miles of railroads, what. inducement would there be for corporations to apply for franchises? No corporation would be safe in the possession of its franchise. The Broadway Street Car Case. '' That the proceedings of the aldermen were illegal was demonstrated in 1881, when a higher body, the state legislature, revoked the franchise of the Broadway railroad. The aldermen were charged with bribery, and the legislature revoked the franchise. "The matter was taken to the courts, and*the supreme court decided in favor of the company. "This matter will not go to the courts for the reason that Mayor Schieren, in my opinion, will not place his signature to the resolution." Mayor Schieren, when asked today if he would veto the resolution, said he would not talk about the matter until the resolution was placed before him tomorrow. President Lewis of the Brooklyn Heights Bailroad company did not appear to be worried over the action of the board of aldermen. "We have done nothing that would warrant the authorities in depriving us of our franchises," he said, "and if we had violated our duty it does not lie with the board of aldermen to punish us. " The resolution passed yesterday is not worth the paper it is written on, and I think the aldermen who voted in favor of it are deserving of the censure of all right minded citizens. "In times like the presont such actions are likely to incite riot." Connelly Thinks -Differently. Master Workman Connelly, when seen by a reporter today, said: '' I feel sure that the mayor will sign the resolution of the aldermen,' and also that their resolution will be sustained by the courts. "In my opinion, the situation, so far as the strikers are concerned, looks more favorable today than at any time since the strike began.'' * - COINER aim INI VUL STREETS, NORWALK.
