thought ho would dio; I told him ho
(Eschhack) would bo all right In few
days; ho said : "I wish tho O dd fel
low wouldn't dlo, because I wouldn't lixe
my mother lo know anything about tho
scrapo;" I asked htm how it camo

aid he was tilting In Andy's shop funning
himself with his hat; said Andy caught
hold of him and commonced shoving him
out of tbo shop; said Andy klckol him ;
then ho taid ho shot him ; ho romatked
to me, "You know G d

A numbor of othor wltncstos wore e''

hilolbo pott mortom examination

about the Iront doors of tbo harbor shop.

flUI'TON 8 NECK WOULD 8TKETCII.
Shorlll' Irvla know this fact, and, al
though doing it quiotly, was ac
live in making preparations to meet
any omorgency that might arite. When
tho pott mortem was ovor nnd the doc
tors had mado thoir roporl, tho verdict of
tho coroner's jury was mado up and tbo
jury dismltsod. Thon tho crowd began
to scatter, but not for tho purpote of go.
Ing to their homes. Knots of men wore
gathorod on ovory street corner, at all tho
public homes, and more otpecially about
tho tiro ongino houtot. Thoir very actions
told that thoro was somothing more than
usual on tbo tapis that thore was mis
chief ahead. A llttlo aftor elovon o'clock
THE FII1E 11ELLH RANO.
This was tho signal, and n ruth was
made for tho engine houses. The engine
wero quickly on tho etroots, and all goiug
In tho direction of tho court houto. At
tho court house tbo engines woro halted;
and iu ton minutes from tho timo tho
bolls first rang, not less than four hundred
men had congregated ln tho street and on
tho sidewalk In front of tho court houto.
Tho purpoto of tho mob was
no longer a secret. Tho object was to
LYNCH dl'lTON,
and cries of "hang tho murdoror!"
"bring out the murderer I" "break open
tbo jail!" and a hundred othor liko excla
mations woro freoly indulged in, and tho
crowd began to gthor about tho gato
leading into tho court house yard.
AT THE OATE.
Tho gato was guarded by four or lire
men Judgo D.J. llakor, M. II: Uarroll,
John II. Ohorly, Conttablo John McMul-
ty nnd tavern! of tho police ofllcors
lining ILara. JuJya Ilkkor, (0ing
that tho crowd wero advancing,
nnd that tho time for action hnl
come, commanded In tbo niinio
of tho pooplo of tho slat that tho mob
dispone; and admonlihod thorn to desist
from an act that would bring dltgraco
upon thomtolves and tho city. Mr. Oberly
and Mr. Harrall also ndmonlsucd tho
crowd to disports and go to thoir hornet;
not to carry out their designs nnd thereby
bring ditgrace nnd roproach upon tho
namo of the city. Hut tho louder thoy
talked the moro boisterous tho crowd bo
came, und criot of
"llRM KUIIir, TOOK BWOBOIl A I '
and "Komonibor poor Uriback I" ' J uttlco
Is played out I" "llring out tho mur
doror 1" oto,, wore hoard on all sidoa. Tho
crowd samoclokor to the gato, and U bej-an
to look ns thouch thoy would acoom
pllth thoir purpoto und break Into tho
jail.
llEINrOKCEUENIS.
About this time Mayor Wood ami a
number of other persons arrived nt the
eceno, and took up thoir position ot the
gato, thut strengthening tho forco then,
aud tho mob wat held back. Thus met
tor continuod for at least an hour, saro
the crowd on tho eidowulks became m
bolitoruui, and begau to reason tho matter
ovor among themselves. Judge Piker
called upon tho captains of tho toveril flro
coMpnnles to call their companies together
and roturn to their ongino houtet. The
ordor was compiled with and tho mob coon
aftor was broken up and everything be
came quiet about tbo court house.
And thuf, through tho efforts of a fow
determined mon thn object of a mob
was balked, nnd tbo city savod tho dlt
graco and thnmo of having it go abroad
that wo wero compelled lo tako tho law In
our own hands In ordor lo tecuro Juitlo,

Gupton undoubtedly Is a very
bad man, and mutt bo punished for
tho crime ho hat commiltod, but tt
would bo Jutt ns criminal for n mob to
tako hltn from tho oill:ors and hang
him, as II was for him to kill Ktehback.
Let tho law tnko Its courie, and no ono
will havo ronton to complain that juitico
hat not boon dono. This It our advico

wilnettcs aro all on hand. Thlt dono, and
no ono will havo cauto for complaint.
Gupton will bo punlthod, nnd that through
tho law, nnd not by mob vloleneo. Lot
tho law do tho work. Do not brako it,
but holp tnforco It.
It hat boon (aid that the (Domon of tho
city aro In a meaturoto blnmo tnr rllind

flremuti nro in no way responsible for it,
and it wat not a flremens' nil'tlr.
