News reached the city yesterday
morning of a bold robbery by two
masked burglars yesterday morning
at 1 o'clock at Roseboro, a station
on the Cape Fear and Yadkin VaK
ley railway, fifty-t ao miles west of
Wilmington and one mile east of
Mr. S W Grier is agent for the
Southern Express company and tele-
grapn operator and agent for the
Cape Fear and Yau kin Valley rail
way at that place, and from passen
geis who cam'sin on the Cape Fear
and Yadkin Valley railway last
night we learn that he gives the
particulars substantially as follows:
On Friday evening about 6 o'clock
Mr. R Butler, who id mayor of the
town ara engaged in business there,
gave Mr. Grier a package containing
$950 to be transmitted to the Dar
ham Fertilizer company, of Durham,
N C "The Express com Dan v's safe

jabout'two hundred vards from the
depot, and when he went home
about 10:30 o'clock that mVht be
carried the money with him and
locked it up' m the safe. He and
his wife retired shortly afterwards
and at 1 o'clock they were aroused
by a rap on the back door.
Mr. Grier inquired, "Who is that?"
and a man outside replied that he
was George McLamb, and that he
wanted to send off a telegram as "old
man White" was worse. MeL'rab
ia a resident cf the place, but the
agent, failing to recognize the voice
as his, told the man at the door
that it was not McLimb's voice.
The burglar insisted that he was
McLamb and the agent told him to
go to the front door and Mick the
message underneath the door.
In the meantime, Mr. Grier clipped
his pants on, opened his room door
and stepped into the passage. As
he did so, a masked man thrust the
muzzle of a reyolver in his face and
demanded money. In some way he
hci opened the door and was in the
passage when Mr, Grier was getting
rfeady to come out, Mr. Grier ret,
plied that he had no money, but the
burglar said; "You havq. Open
your safe and giye me that package
of $950, or I'll blow your brains
out !" Mrs. Grier, had also stepped
into the passage and attempted to
scream, but the burglar told her he
would kill both of therli if thcV
made outcry or gave an alarm. Mi.
Grier being confronted by one
masked man and seeing another on
uard at the door, unlocked the safe
and gave up the package of money,
tbe Durglars then backed out of the
door and disappeared.
Aftef the men had gone out, Mr.
Grier called for help, and haying
secured his revolver, tired to shots
with the hope of attracting help.
No one, however, answered his alarm
but some cf the neighbors heard the
The buiglar who faced Mr, Grier
in the passage is described as a slen
