A Raider of Newark Ohio
ANTI-SALOON LEAGUE MAN
Also an Enemy of Strikers
The Proprietor of Sup
posed Blind Tiger in" a
Dry County Killed in the
Raid on His Place.
Newark, Ohio, July 8. Carl Ether
ington, 22 years old, employed on
Thursday night by the State Anti-Saloon
league as a blind tiger raider, was
lynched here at 10; 35 tonight following
a day of almost continuous rioting.
The heavy doors of the Licking coun
ty jail were battered down and Ether
ington was dragged from his cell. He
was shot, kicked and bruised before the
street was reached and Ids finish was
Etherington e,jirly in the evening
confessed that he killed William How
ward, proprietor of the Last Chance
lestaurant and former chief of police,
in a raid of alleged "Speak Easics" this
afternoon and he narrowly escaped be
ing lynched at that time. "When the
news was brought from the hospital
that Howard died at o'clock tonight,
the fury of the mob took definite form.
Large battering rams were directed
against the doors of the Licking coun
ty jail and the deputies were power
less. The doors fell after an hour's
Crying piteously, Etherington, a curly-headed
Kentuckian who had been,
serving as strike breaker since he was
leleased trom the marine service three
months ago, was dragged forth.
"I didn't mean to do it,hc wailed.
Hie crws fell upon deaf ears.
Etherington's last moments while
he heard the mob battering at the
doors were spent in prayer and in
writing a note to his parents, farmers
residing near Willisburg, Ky. "What
will mother say when she hears of
this?" he kept moaning to the jail
ers. Howard, it is charged, did not resist
the detectives when they entered his
place on the outskirts of the city, but
but his arms around ,Eethorington as
if to hold him, whereupon the officer
ired a bullet into his head.
Striking Baltimore & Ohio employes
declared that Etherington recently
came to Newark as a strike breaker,
"and ill feeling growing out of the strike
intensified the raid today. Tonight a
strike breaker was pursued through
the streets for several blocks. He
saved himself by jumping through the
windows of a laundry.
The detectives who made the raid
arrived this morning with search war
rants secured from the mayor of Gran
ville, a nearby village.
One of the first saloons visited was
that of Louis Bolton, where Edward
McKenna. a bartender, was hit over
the head with brass knuckles. The de
detective who hit him was pursued by
a crowd and was rescued with diffi
culty by the police. The officers with
their prisoner was followed by the mob
to the jail.
Licking county, of which Newark is
the county scat, went dry under the
Rose local option law, but the anti-saloon
league officials say the law was
not enforced. Wayne B. Wheeler, state
superintendent of the league, in an in
terview at Columbus tonight declared
that today's situation was brought
about through negligance on the part
of Mayor Atherton to enforce the law.
While the mob was Dattcrlng down
the doors, Etherington in his cell, in
an attempt to commit suicide, smoth
ered his head in his coat and set fire to
it. in the melee as the mob was leav
ing the jail, eight prisoners, held for
petty offenses, escaped. One refused
As Etherington mounted the block
ready for the swing, he was asked to
make a speech. "I want to warn all
young fellows not to try to make a liv
ing the way I have done by strike
breaking and taking jobs like this," ho
declared. "I had bi.ter not have
worked or I would not be here now."
The swing of the rope cup him short,
H hung there for an hour, while the
crowd left quietly. After the first ex
citement there was no disorder. Hund
reds of women and little children were
in the crowd, all eager to witness his
death. No member of the mob was
masked and no attempt was made to
conceal their identity. The leaders
were personal friends of Howard.
Fearing that the mob spirit would
not be satisfied by one victim, Sheriff
Linke immediately asked Adjutant
General Wcybrech for troops to pro
tect six other "dry" raiders held at the
city prison in another section of the
Sheriff William Llnkc during the. at

jail frantically attempting to, have the
governor's office answer, his telephone
ed appeal for troops. He v;ns inform

Jailer William Lavin was pushed
aside in the rush of the mob and was
uninjured. An extra police guard was
thrown around the other "dry detec
tives" held in the city prison.
,A hurried guard was thrown out in
their defense. The mob, after the first
taste of blood, seemed to be quiet, but
it is feared that it will storm the city
prison before morning.
After the body of Etherington had
dangled from a pole an hour, swinging
before the gaze of the quiet and sob
ered crovxl which slowly melted away,
the rope broke, the city ambulance
rolled up and the limp form was load
ed in anil hauled to the city morgue.
An hour later the city was absolutely
quiet with little danger of further disturbance.
TURNED DETECTIVES LOOSE.
Newark, Ohio, July 9. Fearing that
the whom of the mob might take a new
turn at any moment, the police at
midnight released the six "dry" detec
tives. They were turned loose upon
their own resources and quickly disap
peared. City and county authorities
this morning avoided the question as
to whether the mob leaders would be
prosecuted. The sheriff defends his
stand on the ground that while the
mob was attempting an entrance to the
jail he was busy telephoning to Colum
bus. WERE READY TO CALL OUT
Columbus, July 8. Although steps
had been taken between 10 and 11
o'clock to call out the militia none
was sent to Newark. Adjutant General
Weybrccht and Secrctarry to the Gov
ernor Long received a telephone mes
sage that the Newark authorities
should be given help. Steps were tak
en1 at once to call out companies of the
Fourth regiment here and also troop
B of this city, and tractJon cars were
engaged for them. Before anything
further was done word came that
Etherington had been lynched and that
the mob had dispersed.
Five commands of militia have been
notified to be in readiness. At 11:55
General Weybrecht. Colonel B. L. Bar

by Rush of Air From An

Bethany Plains, Rheims, France,
July 8. The second distressing acci

curred this evening, when Baroness
de la Roche, driving a Voisin bi
plane, lost her nerve at a height of
fifty meters, shut off the power, and
fell with her machine to the ground.
Her legs and arms were broken and
she suffered severe contusions, but
the doctors hope for her recovery. It
was at first thought she had sus

(his was not the case.
At a height of eighty meters Bar

around the field, the spectators in
the grand stand applauding her vo
ciferously. Suddenly she appeared to
become frightened at the approach
of two other aeroplanes, one of
which, a Sommer, driven by M.
Lindpainter,' passed directly over her.
The baroness, in a period of con
sciousness after the accident, said the
rush of uir from the motor overhead
had thrown her into consternation
and that she put out the ignition and
lost control of her machine. At first
the biplane glided on even k.-el, but

while Lindpainter had descended and
the crowd, believing him responsible
for the accident, threatened to lynch
. Gendarmes, however, threw a cor
don about the aviator and dispersed
the excited spectators. Inquiry Ly
the judges' committee showed that
Lindpainter was in no way responsible
for the accident.

For the six months of this year Bos
