Stevens Creek Meeting.
The protracted meeting which
was to have commenced -at Little

MK. EDITOR: Will you kindly

know what juggling Mr. Mayfield
has done with figures to mystify

in favor of Rishardson's adminis

tell Mr. Mayfield to beware of the
fate of Ananias, a famous figure
expert in scriptural times .
We hear a good deal from Gov.
[Tillman, his staff, his organs, and
his admirers, to the effect that he
has reduced taxation. He has not
done so. He has slightly reduced
the rate of taxation, but has so
increased the assessments that the
State taxoB amount to more now
than they have done for many

The above shows that the taxes
levied by the Tillman administra

One of The Mob Prayed.
WINCHESTER, KY, August 16- |
Logan Murphy, the seven teen
years-old desperado, was taken
irom jail early this morning by a
mob. He begged piteously for his
life while being dragged from his
cell. Murphy killed his. father in
cold blood, was arrested, tried and
sentenced to be hanged, but secured
a new trial. While waiting this
he was confined in Mount Sterling
Even there his murderous
methods were continued. Shortly
after his incarceration he slashed
a fellow prisoner with a knife
made from au iron hoop. Last
week he quarrelled with another
prisoner, named Archie Steele, and
stabbed him to death with a knife,
which Murphy said was giveu to I
him by another prisoner. Tho feel
ing against the boy murderer was
so strong that it was deoidcd to
bring him here for safety.
Murphy was taken to the trestle
on the railroad. A rope was quickly
placed around his neck, and he
was asked if he wished to pray
He said: "I don't know how.'.
His hands were then fastened be
hind him and one of the lynchers
pushed him from the trestle. He
fell a distance of eight feet, break
ing his neck. He was left hanging I
untfi 8 o'clock this morning, when |
he was cut down, and after the
coroner's inquest, was turned over |
to an undertaker.
After Murphy said he oouldn't |
pray one of the mob knelt down
and offered up the following
"Oh Lord, have mercy on the
sinner who is about to be launched
into eternity. He has" sinned I
grievously in Thy sight, and as
the law of the land has so far I
failed to punish him, we have
decided to mete out that justice
which is due to those who take the
lives of their fellow men. Oh Lord,
he is not only a double murderer,
but one of his victims was his own
father. A third man lies at death's
door from wounds inflicted by
him, and he has served a term in
the penitentiary for horse stealing,
but Thou hast said, Oh Lord, that
Thou wouldst wash the sinner
whiter than snow,, and to Thy
mercy do we commend the soul of
Logan Murphy."-New York Sun.
