THE LYNCHING OF HOSE.
In another column wo givo a full ac
count of tho lynching of Stun lioso, near
Nownnn, Georgia, on Sunday last. It is
a borriblo story, but a horriblo cri mo
was mooting with a swift and horriblo
punishment. lioso had given a grievous
causo, and griovously did ho answer it.
Consider tho dark picturo of his doublo
crime-murder and rape-in all its bru
tal details, and no punishment could ho
too oruol or horriblo, so far as ho was
And yot tho occurrence is a Bad specta
cle to bo prcsoutod to tho world. It is n
sad commentary on Anglo-Saxon civili
zation and government, when such
crimes ns thoso of whioh lioso was
guilty cannot ho speedily punished in a
quiet ned ordorly manner in tho courts
of justice Tho moral effect of a legal
conviction and execution would be so
much moro wholesome than that of law
less punishment hy a mob. It is not so
much on account of tho victim that a
lynching is to ho deplored, as tho de
moralisation of society under tho reign
of mob violence. Tho moral lesion of
ovoi;' person participating in tho unfor
tunate tragedy must ho groat. It smacks
too much of medieval barbarism when
thousands of spectators gloat ovor tho
sufferings of tho victim, and carry away
pieces of his bono and Mesh to bo trea
sured up as hideous mementoes of his
awful fate. Tho injury thus wrought to
society is far-reaching and fearful to con
template. Tho foundations of civil gov
ernment aro undermined, the restrains
of law and order aro sot at naught, and
in tho ond wo must ho subjected to tho
rulo that might makes riuht.
Again, tho brutal infliction of the death
penalty hy a mob fails in tho accomplish
ment of tho true purpose of all punish
ment, viz: Tho piovcntion of the repeti
tion of tho oiTenso and the reformation
of Bocioty. Instead of tho reign of lynch
law reforming the moral souse of tho
pooplo and furnishing a potent restraint
against tho commission of revolting
crimes, it seems that tho ilood-gatos of
tho devilish liassions of men arc thomby
loosed, until diabolical deeds aro multi
plied rather than diminished. As an in
stance of this effect, we have hut to note
tho almost daily perpetration of tho
crime of rapo in some portion of tho
laud. Should punishment hy tho mob
restrain tho ovil, thoro would he some
compensation for tho injury indicted
upon socioty, but when tho evil is only
intensified, somo other remedy should
he sought and enforced with a strong
What shall tho remedy bo ? Wo can
see nono oxcopt tho organization of an
emorgoney court, charged with tho
speedy trial of accused, under tho forms
of law. Take tho caso of Hose as an
illustration. Suppose immediately after
his arrest an emergency court had boon
organized in Campboll county, and the
prisonor had been given a full, fair and
impartial trial by court and jury, tho
trial would have boon noted by thou
sands of negroes who would have
watched tho proceedings with a sonso of
awe. In this way his trial, conviction
and execution would iiavo appealed to
their sonso of justico, and at tho same
timo have furnished a strong legal re
straint upon their futuro conduct. lint
this wholesome oft'ect is lost by tho in
fliction Of mob violence. It ?S liol that
wo plead for the guilty wretch, no pun
ishment can bc too great for him, but we
do pload for tho purity of Anglo-Saxon
civilization, and this can only be main
tained by tho orderly administration of
justico in legally constituted tribunals.

NKWNAN, GA., April 23.-In tho pres
onco of noarly two thousand porsous,
who sont aloft yells of doflanoo anti
shouts of Joy, Sam Hoao, a nogro, who
committed two of tho bnsost acts known
to clinic, was burned at tho stako in a
?niblin road one und ouo-half milos from
icro this afternoon. Before the torch
was applied to tho pyro tho nogro was
doprlvod of his oars, flngors and other
portions of his anatomy. Tho nogro
pleaded pitifully for his lifo while tho
mutilation was going on, but stood tho
ordeal of Oro with surprising fortltudo.
Before tho body was cool it was out to
pieces, tho bones were cr nabed into small
bits, and oven tho troo upon which tho
wretch mot lils fato was torn up aud dis
posed of a? souvenirs. Tho negro's
heart was out In sovoral piocos, as was
also bis liver. Thoso unable to obtain
thoso ghastly rolics direct paid their

sums for thom. Small piocos of bono

tho mon who liftod tho cnn of korosoiio
to tho negro's hoad is said to bo a nativo
of tho Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Ills nnmo is known to thoso who woro
with him, but thoy rofuso to divulgo it.

Tho Hon. W. Y. Atkinson, former
Govornor of Goorgia, mot tho mob ns ho
was returning from church and appealed
to thom to lot tho law tako it? eourso.
In addressing tho mob ho used these
words: "Somo of you aro known to mo,
and when this affair is finally sottlod in
tho courts you may dopend upon it that
I will testify against you." A member
of tho mob was aeon to draw a rovolvcr
and lovol it at Govornor Atkinson, but
his arm was soizod and tho pistol takon
from him. Tho mob was frantic at do
lays, and would hoar to nothing but
burning at tho Btako.
lioso confessed to killing Cranford,
but denied that he outragod Mrs. Cran
ford. Boforo hoing put to doath tho ue
gro stated that ho had been paid ?20 by
"Ligo" Strickland, a nogro proaober at
Palmetto, to kill Cranford. To-night a
mob of citizens is scouring tho country
for Strickland, who has loft his homo,
and will lynch him if caught.
Sam Hoso killed Alfred Cranford, a
whito farmer, near Palmotto, and out
ragod his wife, ton days ago. Siuco that

Hoso has boon on tho farm of tho Jones
brothers, between Mncou and Columbus,
since the day after ho committed his
horriblo or I mo. His mothor is omplovod
on tho farm, and to her littlo cabin ho
fled as a safe refuge Sho fed him and
cared for him, but it is act boliovod that
sho know ho was hoing hunted for by
tho authorities. Tho dones brothers
wore not aware of tho crime until a fow
days ago, and woro not sure that ho was
tho much wanted man. Satin day morn
ing ono of tho Jones boys mot lioso and
as ho was talking to him noticed that li in
"ginger" face was ebony black, but just
below tho collar of his shirt tue coppoi
color was discernable. It was evident
that tho nogro had blackened bis face,
and tho Jones became convinced that he
was thc negro for whom the authorities,
assisted by bloodhounds, had beon scour
ing tho country for ton days, and thoy
determined to arrest him. Sunday morn
ing they brought tho negro into Macon
ai d put him aboard tho Central of Geor
gia train, with tho intention of bringing
him to Atlanta. At Griffin somo one
recognized Hoso and sent word on tc
Nownan, tho next station, that tho negro
waa on tho tho train bound for Atlanta,
When Nownan was roached a great
crowd surrounded tho train and pushed
into tho cars. Tho .iones boys woro told
that tho nogro could ho delivered to the
Sheriff of Campboll county thcro, and
that it was not necessary to tako bim tc
Atlanta. This was acceded to, and thc
nogro was taken off tho train and march
ed at tho hoad of a yelling, shouting
crowd of flvo hundred peoplo to tho jail.
Hero they turned bini over to Shorifl
Brown, taking arocoipt for tho prisoner,
thus making themselves Sliro of tho $201
rownrd for tho "airest and delivery tc
tho Sheriff of Campbell county of one
Sam HOBO." Word was sent to Mrs. Cran
ford, at Palmetto, that it was believed
Hose was under arrest and that her pres
once was necessary in Nownan to make
suro of idouf'Pintion. In somo way tin
nows of tho arrest leaked out, and as thc
town had boon on tho ?dort for nn;n-!j
two weeks tho intelligence spread rap

MRS. WILLIAMS IS ASSAULTED. f
Negro Attacks and Outragos a White Woman
Groenvillo was astir on Saturday after
noon when tho UOWB carno that a foul
orimo had hoon committed only n short
distance from tho city limits, and that a
rospjctablo white woman was the victim
of a negro's lust. Tho wifo of Silas Wil
liams, au industrious whit o farmor, liv
ing near tho Andorson road, was brutally
assaulted he tween 4 and ? o'dook that
aftornoon by a negro diosscd in uniform,
who ?iii dd en ly appoarod at tho door of
tho house whore Mrs. Williams was on
gaged in ironing. She was ontiroly alono
oxcopt hov youngest child, who was
quiotly Blooping when tho brutal nogro
onmo on tho scone. Tho assault was
mado in a fow minutes, and tho woman
wnslo?t helpless and prostrato for the
timo hoing. Tho negro had vanished ns
if by magic, and mado post linste to
wards Piedmont boforo tho alarm was
givon in thc neighborhood.
Mr. Williams was only a short dis
tance from homo whoo the assault, on
'nis wifo was mado, nud tho two oidor
children wore with him. Ho was speed
ily informed os to tho outrage, and after
returning homo ho carno galloping to
town for a physician and for assistance
to catch tho villain who had despoiled
his humble homo. It did not require
much timo for mon to respond in mount
ed squads, and-the road to Williams's
house was soon thronged with riders
w?.o woro bent upon a summary process
to avengo tho dastardly crime. Thc
neighbors for milos around came to join
in tho Hoaroh for tho miscreant, nud
Bomo of thom started afoot to catch him,
bocauBo ho was still in sight when tho
alarm was givon. This guvo tho nogro
an udvantago, and boforo horses woro
procured ho had loft thc main road and
wa? pushing his way through tho woods.
Piedmont and Polzor wore notified, and
scouting partios woro organized at both
places. Prompt efforts were mado to
cut him oft at tho crossings of Saluda
rivor, and a search was instituted among
tho houses occupied hy nogrocs for
miles around. Tho nogro was soon a fow
miles from tho placo whore tho orimo
was cann mit t ed, but tho partic3 who mot
him did not thou know about tho assault.
It is almost certain that tho assailant
of Mrs. Williams has made good his
escapo and tho latest nows in regard to
him is that ho was sovon milos below
Andorson and was making tracks for
Georgia, which would bo reached in a
fow hourj. His clovor evasion of tho
various parties who joined in tho pur
suit shows that ho was not an ignorant
nogro by any means, and it seems that
his escapo was hardly possiblo whoo mon
woro uniting in tho chase, from ovory
neighborhood. Ho is a very black nogro,
five foot and a hall' high, and weighs
about 140 pounds. Ho - will doubt lesa
got rid of tho uniform at tho llrst oppor
tunity, and his idontity will bo com
pletely lost, ns ho is not unlike a thou
sand otlmrn ovor in Georgia.-Grcouvillo
