PRICE OFFERED FOR
MISS JEWETT'S HEAD,
Boston Anti-Lynching League
Stirred Up a New Orleans
ALLEGED NEGRO CRUSADE.
Recent Rioting in the Crescent City
Caused Much Indignation
League Invasion of South
Boston. Mass.. Aug. 4. The Lillian Clay
ton Jewett Antl-Lynching League of this
city has become very much excited over
threatening- letters sent to the young white
noman at the head of the organisation
from persons in New Orleans, Ia.
The league's branches are composed en
tirely of negroes, and little has been heard
of them for almost a year. An Indigna
tion meeting was held In St. Paul's Baptist
Churcli last Monday evening to protest
against the killing- of negroes in New Or
leans. Miss Jewett was advertised to be
present and the place was crowded. Excite
ment ran high, and one of the speakers
the Reverend B. W. Farrls exclaimed: "If
B Robert Charles could hold 1,X neoido at
bay. what could 10.000 negroes do?"
One speaker recognized a man in the audi
ence Mho, he de:lared. was a former slave
holder In New Orleans. This started a
panic, during -which nil the whites and half
of the regrocs left the church, but the ne
proes returned when quiet had been re
stored. Miss Jewett has been receiving a largo
mail from tho South since the meeting, and
the league has been holding secret meet
ings. The report that $1,000 had been oiferod
for Miss Jewell's head got out to-day and
ridded to the excitement. The threatening
letter in which the reward Is offered is dated
in New Orleans July 3L and says:
"We would give $1,000 reward for your
scalp in preference to any negro In your
congregation. You may be white In the eyes
of Boston people, but In our eyes you are
blacker than llobert Charles. We therefore
Invito you to come down. Our members are
anxiously waiting your arrival to get the
prize that is offered for your head."
Does Not "Want Publicity.
This was signed, "Members Green Turtle
Club, No. 1G12 Annette street. New Orleans,
"I regret very much that the people of
the South should get such an idea of my
work," said Miss Jewett to-night, "and that
the doings of our leagues should again be
come public. I learned a year ago that pub
licity did not help us any and since
that time we have been working auletly."
"tome or tness threatening tetters are oi
ich a character that I could not possibly
;e tnem to tne pumic
While 1 regret that 1 sliouid be regarded
In such a light, they do not worry me any.
I am free to confess that there, is Intense
feeling among the iiegroes over the manner
in wnich they are oeing treated In the
South, and 1 am doing ail in my power to
make their condition better and stop these
lynching through peaceable methods.
"1 am keeping the negroes from acts of
violence. Do you suppose they are going to
Ftand these outrages forever? I am simply
working for law and order, and it would be
against the constitution of our leagues to
resort to violence of any kind."
Confirmed nt Ne-rr Orleans.
New Orleans, La.. Aug. 4. A dispatch
from Boston was published here last Tues
day telling of a mass meeting of negroes,
headed by Miss Lillian Clayton Jewett, and
how they proposed to send a force of 10.00)
men to this city and clear out the whites.
The report said $3,000 was raised to send an ,
agcntuohl-dty-and- to 'equip the cru- j
The Green Turtle Club, with quartets at
No. 1612 Annette street, a semlsoclal-politlcal
organization, drafted resolutions, sending
one copy to a Boston paper and another to
Miss Jewett, inviting the young woman to
come ahead. The club offered $1,000 for
Miss Jewett's head, the members say, and
posted the order In the minute book.
Miss Jewett is a mulatto, who was com
pelled to leave the South because of her
activity in inciting the negroes.
At a meeting ot negroes of New Orleans,
held here to-day, over which Professor G.
II. Henderson, dean of tho faculty of
Straight Colored University, presided, a
permanent organization was perfected to
establish better relations between tho
white and negro racea It was resolved to
discourage all Incendiary literature aimed to
stir up race troubles, all liberal immigra
tion schemes, and to appeal to the negro
people to assist the ofilcers of the law in
the capture ot criminals and outlaws of
Mayor Capdevllle and the citizens who
aided the ppeclal police to protect the ne
groes against tho recent mobs were thanked
and it was promised that the negroes would
co-operate with the better class of whites
and endeax-or to bring all lawless persons
and evil-doers to Justice without regard to
race. Nearly every negro minister In New
Orleans was present at the meeting, and
It was resolved to begin tho campaign to
morrow by all the ministers preaching on
this text and urging their congregations to
enlist on the fiido of law and order and
against race agitators and those who would
Btlr up strife.
Among the leaders In the movement are J.

to the Philadelphia Convention; James

FATHER HARTY MAY BE CHOSEN.
Report That He Is to Be Made Aux
It is reported on high authority that the
Reverend J. J. Harly, pastor of St. Leo's
watnouc unurcn, may oe appointed auxil
iary Bishop of St. Louis. It is said that
renmsnop John J. Kain, who is in Rome,
ks requested Dermlssion of the Dronarandu
to appoint an auxiliary Bishop, and that
j-atner xiany, wno is traveling in liorope,
will be chosen.
While Archbishop Kaln Is in good health
he requires an assistant to help him look
after the affairs of the large and rapidly
growing Diocese of St. Louis..
The present metropolitan of Philadelphia,
Archbiehop Ryan, held the position of coad
jutor to the late Archbishop Kenrick, and
his title carried with It the right of succes
sion. An auxiliary Bishop enjoys all the
privileges of a coadjutor, but is not, any
more than any other Bishop in the dio
cese, the logical successor of the Archbish
op. There has been no coadjutor at St.
Louis since Bishop Ryan was conferred to
the see of Philadelphia. The need of an as
ristant to the Archbishop has been apparent
for a long time. When the Archbishop Is
nbsent from the city the diocese Is virtually
without a spiritual head. Father Harty is
one of the best known priests in St. Louis.
He was formerly identified with St. Brid
Ket's Church, and when the parish bounda
ries were curtailed he founded St. Leo's
Parish. In his ten years as pastor of St.
loco's Church he has built up a congregation
until It is now one of the largest In the

RACK FROM AFRICA,
Richard Harding Davis Says the
End of the War Is Far
BOER ARMY NOT CONQUERED.
Says He Left the British Army and
Joined Ihe Boers Because His
Dispatches Were Censored
and Truth Suppressed.
New York, Aujr. 4. In the opinion of
Richard Harding Davis the end of the war
In South Africa Is still a Ions way ofT, and
the determined remnant of the Boer army,
strongly Intrenched, Is able to fight on in
definitely. Mr. Davis, who was a corre
spondent for The Itepubllc In South Africa,
arrived with Mrs. Davis on the American
liner New York, to-day. Jt is about two
months since the writer left the field, but
his belief that the Boers have an almost
unconquerable army has not been changed
by recent events In the Transvaal.
Mr. Davis, when asked for his opinion of
the war In Scuth Africa, explained that the
reason he left the British army and joined
the Boers was that he was not allowed to
send the truth about the campaign.
"They cut my dispatches and twisted
facts so much that I decided to leave,"
he said. "When there was a Boe victory
I was not allowed to send the story as It
was. When tho British became confused
and fired on their men I was told I must
not send that."
Of the present situation Mr. Davis said:
"It's about as it New York State was the
seat of war and the British should move
north and take Albany, driving the Boers
up Into the Adirondack region. There they
aro with two years' provisions, knowing the
rug-ged country thoroughly, determined to
fight on to the end. and at the same tlmo
the British line of communication between
or original prices.

Mr. Davis did not make an estimate of
the fighting strength of tho Boers. His at
tention was called to the fact that several
thousand Boers under General Hrlnzlo had
surrendered, but he did not think It would
have any marked effect on the result. Gen
eral DeWet he. considers an elttcient, de
termined commander, but the loss of Gen
eral Joubert and General Cronje. the "old
men," as he called them, w.is a heavy one
for the Boers.
Mr. Davis did not return by way of Lon
don, lie left South Africa about two
months ago and stopped at Naplos. going
from there to Alx les Bains to take the
bath for &ciatlc rheumatism, and taking
the New York at Cherbourg.
Mr. Davis said his pro-Boer sympathies
had nothing to do with his not going to
"That story Is ridiculous," he said. "I
wisli now I had gone there, and I would
have done so had I thought that such a
construction would be placed on my coming
another way. My name was posted for
membership at the Garrick Club In London,
but when I learned that there was wm
sentiment against me, I asked the friend
who introduced my name to withdraw it,
and he did."

STEPS TAKEN TO
Chief Campbell Declares His Be

Cars Will Cease.
UNION OFFICERS BEFORE HIM.
Chairman Edwards and Secretary
Missik Were Told They Would
Be Held Responsible for
Chief of Police James Campbell declares
he has taken steps which he thinks will put
a stoi to dynamitlnz of street cars. It
developed yesterday that he had called
two officials of the street railway men's
union before him and had read them a lec
ture on the subject of street car dynamiting.
These two men were T. B. Edwards, chair
man of the Grievance Committee, and Muck
Missik, secretary of the union. In a state
ment issued yesterday they say the Chief
told them he would hold them personally re
sponsible for any future dynamiting, and
would send them to Jail. The Chief denies
making such a threat, but says:
"I had Mr. Mlsslk and Mr. Edwards in my
office here Thursday. I sent for them, for I
wanted to talk with them about explosions
of dynamite under the street cars. I told
them that It had to be stopped: that if
any one was killed in any of the explosions
I would hold them and all of the strikers
responsible. I told them they would be ar
rested and held until I could see what I
could do with them. Missik had little to say
about that, but Edwards spoke up, saying:
'After you get through with us we will see
what we can do.'
"I told them frankly that I believed they
could stop the dynamiting if they wished
to. Missik replied that if they issued an or

such a nature. I closed my office door. It
was not bolted. I did not want others to
hear our conversation, for I did not want
It to become public. 1 am sorry that they
have ten lit to disclose it."
The Chief refuses to further discuss the
subject of dynamiting, and would not even
allow a list of the cases to be prepared.
Think It "Will Cease.
"There has been no dynamiting for two
nights." he aid yesterday afternoon, "and
I think the steps that have been taken will
put a stop to it entirely. Publicity of these
Bteps might prove harmful, and a list of the
cars that have been dynamited would only
parade before the dynamiters and the reat

ha-e had In endangering lives and destroy
The Chief was asked If he had any expla
nation to offer for the failure of the police
to make any arrests In connection with dy
namiting. "None, except that It Is a mighty hard
thing to catch one of the fellows," he said.
"How is a policeman to tell whether a man
has dynamite In his pocket or inside his
pants' lug? A stick of the explosive can be
very easily concealed, and Just as easily
dropped on the track In passing over it.
It Is but a moment's work, and the man
who is doing it can be pretty sure of having
no witnesses. Of course he is out of the
neighborhood when the explosion take
place. That is why no arrests have been
President Edwards Whlttaker of the trans
it company also refused to give out a list
of the cars that had been dynamited, giving
practically the tame reasons as those given
by the Chief of Police. He was asked If he
knew of any plans that the Chief had for
stopping the dynamiting, and replied that
he had heard that something had been done,
but did not know what it was.
It Is reported that detectives have been
stationed at the western ends of the Eads
and Merchants bridges for several nights In
the hope of picking up persons who were
bringing dynamite over from the mining re
gions of Illinois. They were also stationed
at the ferry-boat landings for the same pur
pose, but so far no arrests have been made.
InntnnccH of Dynamiting.
Since the second strike waB ordered, on
July 9, dynamiting has been very frequent,
although few of the explosions have caused
any injuiy to passengers or crew. Some of
the principal Instances, as reported 7R tho
time by the poilce, follow:
July 12, an Easton avenue car was blown
up between Spring and Prairie avenues. Tha
next night a South Broadway car was
blown up near South Broadway and Utah
street. On the night ot Sunday, July 13, a
Lee avenue car was blown up near Tweaty
second street and Bremen avenue, and two
passengers were badly hurt. Six nights
later, on July 21, a Southwestern car was
blown up in front of No. 3031 South Seventh
street, and a Broadway car was blown ujp

ATTORNEYS WRANGLE IN COURT
Proposed Dismissal of Election
Fraud Case Caused It.
A wordy war occurred in the Court of
Criminal Corectlon yesterday morning be
tween Prosecutor Harry A. Clover and At
torney Thomas B. Harvey over the dispo
sition of the case In which Lafayette Rlt
ter, Alexander R. Meier and Charles War
ner, Republicans of the Tenth Ward, are
charged with having made false returns of
a primary election.
The case was tried three weeks ago. and
Judge Clark took it under advisement.
Judge Harvey was engaged as special coun
sel for the prosecution, and received permis
sion from Harry Clover and Judge Clark to
prosecute the case.
When the case was reached yesterday
morning Mr. Clover announced that ho
wished to enter a nolle prosequi. Judge
Harvey protested against such a disposi
tion. In the first place, he said, he had
received permission to prosecute the case
and he did not think Mr. Clover should
nolle prosequi it without consulting him.
He argued further that all the evidence for
both sides was in, that the case was in the
Court's hands and beyond the Jurisdiction
of the Prosecuting Attorney.
Mr. Clover became angry and said he
had become convinced that there was noth
ing in the case and he wished to dismiss it.
Judge Clark said he would continue thj
case until August 18, when he would de
cide whether a nolle prosequi could be en
tered. TURNERS HOLD A "COMMERS."
