A Bold Attempt Thwarted—A Dra
Associated Press to Capitol.
Helena, Mont., August 31.—A Maysville
coach was stopped by two highwaymen about 8
miles out of Helena on Saturday, and the treas
ury box containing about $12,000 in bullion from

were relieved of their valuables. One of the
robbers had given the plot away to the officers,
and when the treasure box was being broken
open, the Sheriff’ and his posse
captured the robbers and recovered
booty. Passengers were made to stand in line
at the muzzle of a gun held by one of the high
waynien,while thejother “went through them” in
the old-fashioned manner. The prisoners are
named Jackson and Gordon. Gordon will be re
leased and get the reward of $600: Jackson has
served seven years in the California penitentia
ry for stage robbing. He claims that Gordon
has teen working the same scheme before—giv- I

( Custom Service was in the city ombusiness of
vital importance to Atlanta, as the p'ermancy of
: the port here would depend upon the result of
:,his official report. The news,man hastened to
the Custom House and found the officer in the
. person of Mr. J. M. Currie, in the office of Col.
Wallace, collector of the port. Mr. Cur : ‘ de
clined to make any statement as to the pu pose
or result of his visit.
f The Capitol reporter has gathered a few

'j • •’ I -■'» autial report which made its
.ue press, first appearing in an Atlan-
■ . uing paper, and for which a local ccflored
< . ;u was authority, to the effect that the port
was to be discontinued by the government.
, ‘ Mr. Currie remarked that the department was
j re; to furnish all facilities within its power
I \\l< iever any necessity showed itself, and that
j- so t’ar as he was able to say there
j was ' necessity for a port of entry here
am all u ‘pended vpon the action of the local
ml*t ( bants, and one or more of the railroads.
A ’ ■ > leaving the office of Col. Wallace, the
j rclb ter had an interview with Mr. Chamberlin,
;a < ie office of Chamberlin, Johnson A ('o. Said
i Mr. Chamberlin: “We have now several thou

thvv could have been forwarded to the Port here, 1

of the detention, the duties could be remitted 1

. of annoyance and expense we must suffer

■ b;k the Air Line, which is the most direct to ■
rk, will give a bond, as the subject is ♦
