Short up for Trial
Important Railroad Scheme for
the Benefit of Wichita.
Derby Heard From Through our Regu
The district court convened at It . m. yes
terday, Judge Sluss pre-iding. The fore
noon session was consumed mostly in calling
up civil caws, which were continued on nc
countof there being nobody ready to res
pond. In the afternoon n criminal case in
which considerable interest as manifested
was tried. The ca-c was the tate of
Kansas against 31 rs. Lizzie .Short. 31 r.
Short was arrested about a week ago charged
with keeping a houscof ill shape on fifth av
enue between Second and Third -treets.
She was brought into court and entered a
plea of not guilty. County Attorney Dale
prosecuted and .Mr. Itcntlcy apcared for
the defendaut. A jury was empanelled, ex
amined bv .Mr. Dale as to whether thev were
opposed to the. punishment ofca'es of tin-,
nature. Tlie Hit witnne- introduced was
31r. Glascoync, who was the principal pror
cuting witnees. He testified that he Knew
the defendaut, that she kept a bawdy home
next to his residence, that ho had seen men
entering said noiw at all hours, day and
night, tliat bhots had been fired on one or
two occasion. From what lie had heard
mid seen he had no doubt that it was the
character of a house rrpre.enti'd in the in
dicted. Jlr. Dryer, the man that owns the
house was licit placed upon the stand. Al
though he was railed by the rtnto, the defense
could not have brought a better witness into
court. His evidence was in direct conflict
with that of Mr. Gaecuync. The Mate
brought forward another witness by whom
it was expected to prove the character of the
house, as the witness had been a frequent
viitortotho house in question. He a
jH'ared considerably embarrassed, but
swore right along at a Maud S. gait. He
said he owned a lot of hogs which he kept
up in that vicinity, and the object of his
visits to thai part of town was to see the
The object of his visits to the house of the
defendant was to get a drink and a mutch
occasionally. In answer to a question of
Jlr. Uiiiu s, lie said as a matter ol course
when he went to anv such place he brouget
no one with him. llis testimouy seems to
have been well understood bv the jury,
who, it appears, did not allow it much
weight. Tiirec other witnesses were exam
ined but very little evidence of a criminat
ing nature was elicited. The pruecuiiiiii
were disappointed in the evidence, and Mr.
Bently assumed that he had the case with
out an effort, hut in this he was disappoint
ed. He demurred against the evidence, hut
tha court overruled the demurrer. He then
asked the court to instruct the jury to re
turn a verdict of not guilty. The court is
not that kind of a man, .so Mr. ltently
thought he would knock the evidence (if
the prosecution into a cocked hat by put
ting the defendant on the stand, but this
is just where he blundered. She rolled her
evidence in according to the ino-t approved
stjle and everything lookAl lovelv until Mr,
Dale began to cross examine when things
were brought out that satisfied the jury as
to her character. The defense brought in
another witness, a tough looking individual
whose name is Dunlup and who-c alleged
wife is under arrest lor a similar otli-iisc. .
Dunlaplhcs next door south of the Short j
mansion, and he and his immaculate duck, I
who was in court, and whose appearance
and generil make up indicated a jerc.ii of
a highly moral and intellectual status over
the left Mr. Ihinlap mounted the witne-s
stand and had no dilhculty in demotn-lratiiig
his ability as a witness. It was no trouble
to him to testify and one would suppose
that he could swear a horse thief clear while
you could say .lack ltobiuson. but the
Iwelw! men iiih bench evidently thought
it too thin. When the court presented the
case to the jury and defined a "bawdy
house," it looked to many present that the
btatc had failed to make "a case. Mr. Dale
stuck to the cae persistently and his closing
argument w.i a well chosen plea for convic
tion on the ground of the necessity for pro
tecting respectable families against such
parties flaunting their shamo in the f.icee- of

Laceossk, "Wis., Oct IC. F. A. Burton,
president of tho Blaine tfc Logan club here
xvas shot dead by ruffian known as "Seottv,"
at eight o'clock this evening while tho l!e
puhlicans xvere forming in procession on
Main street. Seven shots xvere tired in quick
succession. The murderer was arrested and
hurried to iail before the immense crowd
could realize what had occurred. As soon
as the fact was made known there was the
most intense excitement and hundreds of men
in uniform and carrying their torches hur
ried to the court house yard and de
manfled that tho prisoner be hand
ed ox-cr to them. "Lynch him!"
"Lynch him"' is the general cry and at this
moment, 8:40, there are hundreds of men
beseigiug the jail. Sheriff Scott, Chief of
Police Clark and a posse of police are at tho
jail door trying to calm the infuriated multi
tude. No "violence has been done yet and
none may take place, but there is an awful
current of public feeling. The body of Mr.
Burton lias been taken to the drug's.oro of
T. H. Spence, where an examination shows
life extinct, every shot taking effect. Those
who stood near the scene of the murder sax
the man advanced from the crowll
on tho sidewalk to within a few feet of his
victim and fired the first bullet into the back
of Mr. Burton who fell to the pavement and
the murderer followed with six shots into
his body and head, then threw the rex-olver
at his victim and gave him a kick, saying,
"that's the son of a b that knows me and
that I have been looking for," or words to
that effect. All this was done in a minutes
time and before any one could realize what
had happened. Mr. Burton was a broker
and commission merchant for I. II. Ixivxry
it Co., of Milwaukee, and son-in-law
of Captain I. H. Moulton, agent for
the St. Paul company here, was one of
best knoxvn men and most prominent young
business men in the northwest xvas chosen
f resident of the Blaine aad Logan club at
.acrossc, and xvas managing the campaign
in this section. The motixe of the mur
derer is unknown. He is said to be a most
desperate character who had folloxved tho
river for a living. Ho ha served a term in
state's prison. After throwing the first re
volver at his victim it was found that he had
another in his pocket, but he was arrested
before he had an opportunity to use it.
The Bepublican intended" celebrating
to-night with a parade, fireworks and
speeches, but the scene has changed as it ly
magic, to a scene of terrible excitement of
far different character. Threats are deep
and determined. The city being greatly
crowded, if the crowd had not a responsible,
cool headed leader, the murderer would be
swung iu an hour. The most conservative
oppose violence; artt"njthat tho inan might
have been ician- 'TR ,-V-.- t leATCi
wife and three children. It is the most
heartrending tragedy that has ever taken
place in this city.
Latkr. At 10.30 p. in. the officers xvere
not nblc to stop the mob, xv ho refused to
listen to arguments. From nine o'clock to
ten tlie court house yard square presented a
sccno xvhieli beggared description. The
mob increased m numbers until the entire
space on three sides of the jail xx-as a dense
mass of humanity, demanding that the
murderer be hung. Tho torches of the men
glared above the sea of heads, and the xvhite
plumes, moxed resolutely about tho square.
The best citizens in theplaco xvere present,
and watched the fearful sccno with blanched
faces, but xvith no expression of sympathy.
There xvere hundreds of women in the
thoroughfares and tha walks about tho jail.
The excitement grew steadily in force, and
the demand at last found leaders xvith cool
heads who went methodically about hiking
tho man from prison and lynching him.
Beams xvere secured, and in a short time the
heavily bolted and barred doors on the
Fourth street side of the jail were battered
down, and the crowd poured into the first
floor rooms. The sheriff and assistants
succeeded in clearing the room the first and
second time, but tho third rush tho mob
overpowered them and held their ground.
There xvere no drunken men in the mob, the
xv hole work being done by resolute fellows
who decided to make the" murderer pay the
death penalty before they left the square.
Once in the corridors sledge hammers
wero used, Tho heavy iron doors soon
yielded, and as each fresh adxanco xvas
made the crowd were apprised on the out
side, and constant cheers of encouragement
went up. The prisoner was taken from his
cell and dragged into tha vard. He was
identified as the man who did the shooting.
A number of men xvere soon clambering to
the branches of the tree, and in a minute
i 'elected, and a rope quickly thrown j
i sittinc on the hrt stronc limb. '
to u man sitting
The murderer declined to say anything, ex'
cept that he was the man xvho shot Burton.
At this juncture the crv went round: "Pull
him up: Hang him! l)on't let him live u
minute longer! .
mute longer. . . ,,
It was understood that the Ijghl Guard
ttipany ofthe Third regiment, ;.
had been ordered out to charge the mob,
anil there, xva an impression that the execu
tion would be prevented. No rally of the
guard xvas made whatever. The mob seized ,
the rope and made a strong pull, but the
ruffian freed his hands and the roie- broke
before ho was raised from tho ground. In '
less than 5ve minute ancxv roj-ewa-thrown
over the heads of the crowd and fell within '
a few feet of the executioner. This wa- aJ
ju.ted, the murderers fejiandarm. firmly
tied, iind a moment later he xvas hangin- m
the air with his face closely pressed aintt
the limb ot the tree, and tho terrible tragedy
While the excitement xvas at its highe-t I
the terrible din was increa-ed by the ringing
of the lire bells and rattle or the engine-,
railed out bv the burning of a wood shop
connected with the northwestern fonndry,
and tho night xva one which, it is to b boil

The majority for Bobinson for seeretarv

real line of political division betxveen tho two

Bobinson a plurality of 11,421. This shows
a Bepublican gain of 20,053, and a Demo

the Bcpubiicans made all tlfeir gains and
the Democrats in the rest. The Itenublican

opposite tho Coney Island life saving station
about two miles oil" shore, at 7:lo this morn

menced h.tting out the cable. At 8:30 a boat
containing the chief electrician, Frank Brit

the Island at nine. Brittle examined the
landing place, trench and station, which he
found satisfactory. He returned to the ship
a few minutes after. The boats xvere towed
from the Faraday by the tug J. II.
Shanahan.with a rope to pull the rafts ashore
and returned. Second Officer Hicks, in
charge of the boats said the cable was near
ly all coiled on tho rails and would probably
reach the shore xvith it at 1 o'clock. A strong
west wind xvas then blowing but not very
heavy surf. The deep sea second section

speeches made by tho officers and friends of
the enterprise, it" was made known that all
hopes of landing tho commercial cable to
