Railway was having its problems with the criminal element, it was by no means alone. Throughout the United States, railroad companies were experiencing the same problem ..... On Christmas Eve, 1912, four masked bandi.ts held up and robbed a passenger train on the Chicago and Alton Railway. They secured a sack of corporation bonds and many other valuable items from the express ear. They were in the process of dynamiting the safe open in the express car when they became frightened and left the train. They were apprehended. The previous day, Dec. 23, 1912, a Hinton man contributed greatly to some headaches for the Virginian and N. & W. Railroads. He was employed as a freight train engineer for the Virginian and started celebrating Christmas a little early by indulging heavily in barley corn. In an intoxicated state, he entered the roundhouse of the N. & W. Railroad at Bluefield, took charge of engine No. 908, took a joy ride and after about one-half mile trip crashed into engine No. 1322 partially demolishing both engines. The joy rider was found in the wreckage with a big hole in his head, some broken ribs, a broken arm and internal injuries. He was taken to a Bluefield hospital and when he recovered sufficiently, was arrested on a charge of theft. While the notorious Jesse James Gang was running rampant, robbing trains, the State of Utah had its gang known as the "Utah Bandits." On January 4, 1911 the Southern Pacific Railroad's most celebrated passenger train running between Chicago and San Francisco, the "Overland Express," train No. 1 was held up. Two porters in the car resisted and were shot to death. The gun fire awakened the passengers and two of them were wounded by gun shot but not seriously. While one of the men stood at the entrance of the car brandishing a revolver, another went through collecting money and jewellery from the passengers. Several sack fulls of valuables were collected from the train and the, desperadoes disappeared into the darkness of night, their means of transportation unknown. Conductor Cunningham notified the train dispa.tcher of the S. P. Railroad at Ogden concerning the hold-up. A special train was dispatched to Reece Station with a posse of twenty-five armed men but the Utah Bandits had vanished leaving no trail whatever to be followed. Back on the C. & O. a considerable amount of excitement was created near Huntington, W. VA., when on May 21, 1913, an attempt was made to kidnap a girl passenger who was riding train No. 14 with her mother. Mrs. Joseph Lovejoyand her daughter, Vira, age 19, boarded No. 14 at Guyandotte enroute to St. Albans. A Huntington resident who was a passenger on the train witnessed the entire event but was unaware of a kidnap attempt until it was all over. He witnessed Mrs: Lovejoy and Vira when hey boarded the train and took their seat. He also saw a man named Henry "/Vatson enter the coach and take a seat directly behind them. When lo. 14 stopped at Wilson's Switch, a flag stop just east of Guyandotte, the man. got up, took the girl by the arm and they both proceeded down the aisle toward the exit door. He had almost succeeded getting the girl off the train when Mrs. Lovejoy suddenly realized what was happening. She jumped to her feet and with a scream of rage grabbed the girl's other arm and for of his named George Statts, age 21, of Guyandotte, who had for sometime professed his love for her daughter. The man who witnessed the entire affair stated the girl had made no effort whatever to avoid the kidnapping and, in fact, it appeared she was quite willing to leave the train with her abductor.
