Negro Murderer Burned
by Enraged Men
FATHER OF CHILD KILLED
APPLIES MATCH TO PIRE
Mob Law and Fierce Retribution
Criminal Stolid Till Flames Burn
ed Quivering Flesh Begged
to be Shot.
I.I n on Colo., Nov. 10. Chained to
a railroad rail, sot firmly In the
ground, on the exact spot whero nls
fiendish crime wns committed, Pres
ton Porter, Jr., or, as ho was familiar
ly known, John Vorter, this evening
paid n terribly penalty for his deed. It
was, 6:23 o'clock when tho father of
tho murdered Klrl touched tho mat?h
to the fuel which had been piled
around tho negro, and 20 minutes lat
er a last convtilslvo shudder told that
llfo was extinct. What ngony tho
doomed boy suffered while tho (lames
shivered up his fleBh could only bo
guessed by tho tcrrlnlo contortions of
his faco and tho cries ho gnvo from
tlmo to time.
Tho executioners, who numbered
nbout 300 citizens of I.lmon County,
had not tho least semblance of tho or
dinary mob. Their every act was de
liberate, and during all tho prepara
tions, as well as throughout tho suff'-r-Ings
of tho negro, hardly an unneces
sary word was spoken. Grimly they
stood In a clrclo about tho flro until
tho body was entirely consumed nnd
then quietly they took their way back
to I.lmon, from whonco they departed
for their homes shortly nftcrward.
Preston Porter did not seem to ro
nllzo tho awful riiihlshment that -io
was destined to undergo. As ho hal
exhibited Indlffarcnco to the enormity
of his crime! so ho seemed to lack all
understand of Its terrible conse
quences. For moro than an hour
wlillo preparations for his execution
wcro In progress, ho stood muto and
sullen among tho avengers. When or
crythlng was ready ho walked to tho
stako with a firm step, pausing as ho
reached tho clrclo of broken boards 'o
kneel In prayer. Ho was allowed o
tnko his time. Ho aroso and placed
his back to tho Iron stake, nnd half
a dozen men wound chnlns about his
body and limbs.
Kcroscno oil was applied to tho
wood, and after n brief pause, Rich
ard W. Frost, tho father of little
Loulso Frost, whoso cruelly mutilated
body was found one week ngn on that
very spot, took his matohsnfo out, ex
tracted a match, lit it and touched Iho
flames to tho oil.
For a moment but n flickering flamp
arose, then the oil blazed up, sparks
flew Into tho aid and tho wood began
to cracklo. Almost instnntly tho ne
gro's trousers chught flro. Even
though "tho flesh must hnvo bo:n
scorched, ho did not utter a sound.
Tho flames crept slowly upward on its
clothing, tho sparks flow up In a clojtl
and a frightful expression chnnged ills
face. With a sudden convulsive, tug
ging ho stretched his head as far b
posBlblo from tho rapidly Increasing
flames and uttered. n cry of pain.
"Oh, my Hod! l.et mo go, men; I'o
something moro to tell you. Pleaso let
mo go. Oh, my God! My God!"
In tcrrlblo screeches theso words,
tho first ho had uttered nloud, ramo
from tho negro. A tcrrlblo tugging it
the chains, a succession of awful
groans and screams, tho negro's nwf-il
ngony wob at last breaking down his
sullen composure Not an oath .-
enped him, but ho begged and pleaded
to bo shot. Suddonly, tho ropo hal'I
ing his hands burned through. Then
tho nrms, head nnd shoulders sllpptid
through tho chnln. For an Instance
tho body Btood erect, tho nrms wo-o
raised In suppllcntlon, wlillo burning
pieces of cloth dropped from them.
Tho body then fell nwny from tho flro,
tho head Inner thnn tho feet, which
wcro still fastened to tho rail.
