Springfield, 111., June 18.—Two masked men who early today robbed the express car on the "Diamond Special," the Illinois Central's fast train between St. Louis and Chicago, were sought in this city today.

The safe, according to the lo- cal express agent, contained not more than $500. In their at- tempts to get this sum the rob- bers threatened the engine crew with death, overpowered the ex- press messenger, fired promis- cuously at passengers, disarmed one detective and exchanged shots with another. No one was hurt so far as known. The hold-up took place ten miles south of Springfield. A danger signal ...
