Lexixcton, Oct. 14.—Another lynch
ing has been added to the usually large
fall series of Blue (irass lynching bees.
Yesterday, at the close of the Beaity ville
lair, Oscar Morton, a prominent citizen
of Morton, in l'owell County, went on
the warpath. Two weeks ago Morton
killed a man at Stanton, and was out on
§v»0 bonds. He arrived at the fair yester
day, and immediately proceeded to get
drunk. AY hen thoroughly intoxicated he
start to hunt for Sheriff Simms, who is
his deadlj' enemy. Simms and Morton
met near the entrance to the fair grounds,
Bud after a few words both of them drew
guns. A quick exchange of shots fol
lowed, Mortuu using two guns. His first
snot broke the Sheriff's right arm at the
elbow. John Hogg, a friend <>t Stmma,
whipped out his gun and joined in the
battle. When tho smoke had cleared
away it was found that Bheriff Simms
was dead. Morton was shot through the
neck, whiie Hogg was unhurt.
Morton was hustled to the County Jail
and placed under guard. The people be
came infuriated and a meeting was at
once held in the big square. Speeches
were made by prominent citizens advo
cating the death of the guilty person.
The Jailer was overpowered and the
ii'jy.s to Morion's cell obtained, lie was
found croucned on the lloor, and after a
bitter struggle was seized and dragged
out. Seeing his game was up, Morton
made the best of the thing and told the
mob he did not care what they did with
him, provided they did their work
Alter a short parley he was taken to a
little bridge some distance from town and
tho rope placed around his neck. He was
then lorced to jump. Turning around,
the doomed man cursed his captors, and,
uttering wild imprecations, leaped into
space. The jump broke his neck. After
dangling in the air for sotiie minutes his
body became stiff and a voiley of bullets
was lired into it. The mob then dis
persed, leaving the body dangling from
the bridge. At noon to-day it was still
there. None of tho mob made any at
tempt to conceal their identity, and the
hanging was conducted with as much
lormality as if it had been v legal alfair.
The murderer was a wealthy man, who
lived at Stanton.

CHICAGO) Oct. It.—The announcement
of tho Washington Park Club that it
will hold no more race meetings does not
mean that there will be no more meet
ings, but simply tho club will not as
sume control of the racing. The organ
ization has always been as much of a
social as a racing organization. The
American Derby, the Sheridan stakes
and the revived Knglewood stakes will
close to-morrow. Tho club has four
classic events for tho 1895 season closed
last October, which will have to be
abandoned. They are the fau.o6o Amer

St. Lot-is, Oct. 14.—Before a throng

well as the great Eads bridge. Miss
Kosentheim won the mile and a half

ship of America, defeating Miss Tillie
Ashley of Hartford, Conu. Miss Rosen
theim's time was 12 minutes and l^t sec

the race, the river at the starting point
was floated with everything in the shape
of ships and boats. The course was down
stream, and was between the bridges. It
was kept clear by patrol boats op to the
firing of the pistol. Little time was lost
in preliminaries, and at 4:30 the girls cot
away to a good start, pulling an easy
stroke. Before a sixteenth of a mile had
been gone over the pulling was strength
ened lor a bit. For the first quarter of a
mile there was little to be seen but the
bows of the two shells. The St. Louia
girl then quickened her stroke, pulled
into the lead, and was never thereafter in
danger. Immediately on the close of the ;
race the contestants were picked up by I
their tugs and taken to the clubhouse,
near the starting point. Miss Ashley and
her manager left for home to-night.

of the men who accomplished the
notable feat of train brigandage in
Virginia Friday nigh:, in which per

most isolated from civilization, is over

many theories as there are detectives.
Hut the only points on which the theories
are practically harmonious are that the

AX OVKRDUiS VESSEL.
Great Uneasiness Felt for the Safety of
tho Ship Ivanhoe.
San FriAXci.seo, Oct. 14.—There are
growing fears for the safely of the ship
Ivanhoe, a fow days overdue at this port
from Puget Sound. One rumor gained
currency on the water front that the ves
sel had taken fire and burned at sea
shortly alter leaving the sound, but little
credence is given this theory. Tho last
seen of the Ivanhoe was on September
27th. On that date she was met by the
Yosemite, of the same line, coming out
of the straits. The missing ship had a
cargo of coal from Seattle consigned to
her owners. The latter named vessel
reached port to-day, sad Captain Fuller
ton was surprised to learn that tho Ivan
hoe had not arrived. At this season of
the year nine or ten days are usually con
sumed in making the passage. Consid
erable uneasiness is felt for tho safety of
the vessel. Captaiu (jrillin, the skipper of
the Ivanhoe, is one of the best sailors ou
the ocean. Several vessels were damaged
in the early October blow, and the Ivan
hoe might have been one of them. Late
arrivals from Nanaimo are reported to
have passod a good deal of wrecKage on
the way down, but her owners have little
uneasiness at her delay. They have
great confidence in Captain Grifliu.

uefore 8 a. m. two well-dressed men, who
were strangers, entered the bar-room ot
the Byrnes Hotel through the side en
trance. One was short, the other very
tall. They carried a large black grip
sack, which they placed on the counter
before them. Both were freshly shaven.
They at once culled for and had drinks.
One of the men had a cut or dome sim
ilar injury ou one oi his hands, and asked
the barkeeper if he could supply him
with a cloth to biud it up. The latter re
plied that ho could, and turned into a
small room near the bar to get the cloth.
There is but a thin partition, and the bar
keeper was only a few feet away while in
the room. While he was getting the
cloth he heard one of the men say to his
companion: "We had better get out of
here pretty quick, or we'll get nailed."
When the barkeeper returned he
brought a cloth and arnica, and the
wounded man hastily tied up his hand.
The two men then asked for a bottlo of
whisky, paid for it and left.
The barkeeper, having his suspicion
aroused, went to the door aud watched
tiiom. He saw them go from the hotel in
a southeasterly direction. When a little

MR JOHNSON'S CAMPAIGN.
A. Correspondent's Account of tho Fine
Meartng at Jaotssoa, Ammlor Co.
Jackson. October 13, 1594.
Ei>^. Xi:• uKi>-L\ni')n: One of the pleas
antest of tho many pleasant features of
my visit in Jackson was the privilege I
enjoyed last Wednesday evening of hear
ing tho eloquent and convincing cam
paign speech of the Hon. Grove L. John
The ladies of tho Republican party had
the speakers' stand prepared most artis
tically—graceful drapiugs of lace daint
ily festooned with trailing vines, aud a
rich profusion of llowers ta:Jtelully dis
persed among abundance of Hags and
drapings of red, white and blue bunting.
A good supply of benches had been
provided hi tne square, but failed toac
commodati- one-fourth of the largo audi
euco gathered, being given over to the
ladies, while the street and Bidewalk
were packed with men who all gave re
spectful aud appreciative) attention to the
able address of two hours'length, show
ing their approval of the saiietit points
by hearty cheers.
Every word could bo heard at tho
farthest limits of the crowd. The speaker
made no special effort to raise his voice,
and refrained entirely from political
rant and abuse, leaving no sore spots to
be nursed by ;iny particular opponent.
The local band dispensed most excellent
music, and the Ciieo Club rendered a
number of campaign songs in a stirring
and delightful manner. The pretty cos
tumes and smiling faces of tho ladies
formed a fitting background for tho im
posing figures of Jackson's most solid
citizens in front, among whom were
noticeable B. F, Taylor, President of the
evening: Hon. John F. Davis, the learned
occupant of tho Superior Judge's bench;
Dr. Schacht and a number of others.
The Republican ladies have organized
a political club, and under the leader
ship of their Chairman they marched l;ir
out of the limits of the town aud aided in
forming tho escort of citizens who, with
the band at their front, accompanied the
carriage containing the speaker in its ad
vance up tho main streets, which was
highly illuminated with bonfires and
myriads of candles aud electric lights,
while fancy lanterns swung in festoons
in tho breeze, adding to the beauty of the
scene, which really possessed a witchery
quite unusual to such occasions. It ap
peared to throw the prophesy of success
over the efforts of the Republican party
as—"Comiug events cast their shadows
before." Fkekda Koch.
