LYNCHED AT EARLY MCRN.
Rotcoe Parker the Victim of a Masked
Winchester, O., Jaa. 13. As pre
dicted several days agOj Roscoe Parker
has paid the penalty of th murder of
the aged Ryun couple without a trial by
legal process. At an early hour yester
day morning a mob of masked men broke
down the jail doors at West Union de
spite the resistance offered by Sheriff
Marion Dunlap, and securing their dusky
prisoner, they carried him to the
hamlet of North Liberty near West
Union, a colored settlement. Here Par
ker, with his arms pinioned, was taken
out of a wagon to a place where a long
hmb projected over an embankment.
The doomed black man failed to betray
the slightest emotion. When asked
what he had to say, he declared simply
"nothing," but said there was no one
else implicated in the crime, "for" said
ne.,'I wasn't there myself that night."
Parker was then swung np, there was
a convulsive movement of the legs, and
then his right hand became free and he
seized the rope, taking the strain from
his neck. He was lowered in
an instant, and the hands pinioned so
firmly that it was certain he could not
move them again. He had fallen to the
ground, but was jerked upright and a
few feet into the air, where the rope
caught. "Help here," and a dozen more
sprang forward, hoisting the black body
10 feet from the hillside. His lower limbs
moved as if in agony, but no other sign
ehowed that there was a spark of life in
the form. His body was then riddled
with bullets from a score of pistols. The
mob then dispersed in different direoHnna

saved, but for the fact that she attempt
ed to awake her two daughters, aged
respectively 17 and 19, who occupied a
small garret room overhead. Several
other persons were badly burned. Later

without houses and shelter, and their,
relatives have but little to divide,
