Centralia, Ill. (Illinois, United States) (search for this): article 7
of the Memphis Bulletin: A Cairo telegram states that the most daring scheme of villainy ever perpetrated on the cars, was committed between this city and Centralia, night before last. The particulars are as follows: A large number of troops were on route from Camp Yates to Vicksburg. They were known to have a considerableng their comrades. To accomplish this they procured a quantity of whiskey, which they drugged and placed in bottles and canteens. After the train had left Centralia these men entered one of the cars, which was filled with soldiers, and distributed liquor. The night being cold, the soldiers drank freely. It was but a short oney, and a gold watch and a revolver from one man, who died from the effects of the drug taken in the liquor. About $900 were taken from soldiers, who awoke from unconsciousness to find they had been robbed. The scoundrels who committed the robbery got off the train immediately after, somewhere between Cairo and Centralia.
