At the statlon of Les Couronnes the

she had been Impertlnent to the wlfe of
the warden Oiat fiho was whlpped, but
because Warden Allagood had made ad
vances to her, and because she refused to
obey hlm she was beaten more cruelly
than any femala convlct has ever been
whlpped In the hlstory of the State con?
As tho words fell from the woman's
llps the members of the commlttee gazed
at her lntently. She dld not waver,
though her cheeks blushed crlmson. Then
the eyes of the leglslators Fought War?
den Allagood, agalnst whom the black
charge had been made.
"At flrst I was treated Just as though
a member of the Allagood fajnlly," she
declared. "Then thls man mado propos
als to me. I tcorned hlm. and from that
r.ioment hls treatment changed from that
of a gentleman to that of brutallty and
cruelty lraposslble to descrlbe."
IrtADE 1T HOT.
"About June 1st," Mlss DeCrlst con
tinued. "Captalri Allagood and I were
alone In an upper prlson room. He caught
hold of me and trled to caress me. I
pulled away from hlm and told hlm not to
dare to touch me. He left In anger, and
golng Into the next room he asked me to
ccme ln that room, but I refused, and hur
rled down stalrs. He told me that If I
ever repeated what he had sald he would
make lt hot for me. He certalnly has.
He told me he could whlp me. He dld."
"I was wlthout a fiiend; I had no one
In the world to whom I could go. I knew,
as other eonviet&i had told me, that un
less I ylelded to thls man, who had me
at hls mercy, I would be tortured and
beaten wlthln an lnch of my llfe."
"He went after Dr. Adams and made
hlm examlne me physlcally to see If I
were able to undergo the whlpplng. The
Doctor examlned me and sald he thought
1 could stand the punlshment."
A LEATHFR STRAP.
"Allagood made me lle across the bed
He then whlpped me wlth the leathor
strap. I do not know how many llcks
he struck. I know the beatlng was very
severe. I know the lashes left great
"I had great welts on my body. The
beatlng was admlnlstered upon my back.
For weeks these brulses and welts were
on my body, and for a long tlme I could
not ptt down."
At the request of members of the c.om
mittee Mlss DeCrlst showed her back,
with tho strlpes still unhealed. She alao
told of an attempt to eommit suicide In
order to escapo Warden Allagood. She
sald she cllmbed up on the roof of the
barn for the purpose of throwlng herself
to the ground, and thus end her mlser
able exlstenee. She explalned her fnllure
to klll herself by saylng that as she pre

Strain of Dutles Tells Upon
AGED BY HIS ELECTION
Physician Has Ordered All Audiences
Postponed Until Pope Pius Regains
His Strength?Heart Weaknesa
Aggravated by Fatiguc.
(By Assnclnted Press.)
ROME. August 31.?Just a week hns
elapsed slnce the electlon of Plus X. and
he has been alrearty overrome by the
unaccustomed strain of hls pontlflral du?
tles. Thls mornlng he fainted whlle nt
mass. Hls collapse is consldered to be due
to heart weakness aggravated by fatlgue.
Dr. Dapponl recommended the Pnpe to
take a complete rest. The doctnr has or?
dered all audiences postponed.
The Pope has been over exertlng hlm
self to such an extent that hls naturally
strong constltutlon was unable to bear
the Btraln put upon lt by the coronatlon
ceremonles. Such has been the effect upon
hls nerves that he has been unablo to
sleep for whole nlghts, whlle numerous
receptlons yesterday made matters tt-orse.
Last nlght His Hollness was very much
agltated, stlll he inslsted upon adrrtlttlng
thls mornlng to hear Ws mass all Vene
tlans who had journeyed to Rnme pur
posely to nttend the coronatlon. They
numbered about 300, when the mass hegan
In the Paullne chapel, and the air was
vltlated. wlth the temperature above
PADER AND PAT..ER.
Pope Plus was seen to grow pa)?r and
paler, flnally throwlng out hls honds as
though seeking support. He would have
fallen had not Mbn'slgnor Bressnn, hla
prlvate chaplaln, been qnick to catch hlm.
Fortunately, among the Venetians present
was Dr. Davenezla. who for hlne years
has been the Pope's attendlng physlciaa
Dr. Davenezla gave the Pontlff Imme
dlate asslstance, whlle the messengera
telephoned Dr. Lapponi.
When able to speak agaln the Pope
asked for a few drops of water, whlch
were glven to hlm and water was
Bprlnkled on his face. His gown was
onened at the neck, as he seemed to be
choklng. He refused absolutely, however,
to b? carrled to hls apartment. saylng
he felt sufficlently strorg to walk. The
wav thlther wa- clearitt) and he pro
ceeded slowlv, surroundcd by hls aiixlous
entourage. hls head bent almost on his
shoulder and so pale that the flesh was
scarcelv dlstlngulshable from hls robes.
Although the Pope was much better
thls afternoon. Dr. Lapponl, who vlslted
hlm agaln, thought lt more prudent for
Hls Hollness not to leave hls apartment
and not to go Into the garden of tho
Vatican. as he desired. The doctor fur
ther inslsted on a suspenslon of audi?
Dr. Davenezia, speaklng about the
"If they wlsh our Plus not to succumb,
the Vatican authorltles must cbange thelr
system. They must not obllge hlm to
follow the hablts nf Pojie Leo. The pres?
ent Pontiff needs especlallv plenty of
fresh alr. He must not be shut up ln a
box In a vltlated atmospbere."
The Porjc retlred earller than usual,
saylng that he felt qulte recovered. Hls
intimat.es. howevor. say that. he is much
ehanged slnce hls electlon and seems to
have crown years older. Hls sisters at Ve?
nlce were much alarmed over .the news
of hls Indlsposltlon and have declded to

Speech of John Temple

Address Dellvered at Chau
tauqua. N. Y.. Conference
THE MOB SPIRIT
IN THE SOUTH
Mr, Graves' Splendld Orarlon Wa?
Listened to With Closest Attention,
and Little Else Was Talked
About After its Delivory.
Heard the Truth for
the Flrst Time,
(By Associated Press.)
CHAUTAUQUA, Augus* U.-The fean
tures of the day'a prooeedlnga at the)
Chautauqua was tho speech of John Tem
plo Graves, of Georgia, on the qucstlon ofi
lynchlng in the South, and the meana
r.ecessary to prevent lt. It was a moBt
remarkable speech?perhaps the mo?t re
markablo whlch has been dellvered on thla
question before a Northern audience, and
to say that tho speaker was llatened to
wlth terise interest and that his words
mado a deep lmpression on hia hearera
ls well wlthln the truth.
Mr. Graves ls an. orator of no mean
power. Hls evldent earrvestness and full
bellef in tho truth of what he was say?
lng Impressed oven those who totally dls
agreo wlth hlm ln hls concluslons, and they
Little else was talked of nt the Chau
tauqua after tho address except what
Mr. Graves had sald. It was generally
npreed that the Oeorgian had mado out
tho strongest caso posslble for thoso who
defend lynchlng tinder extremely aggra?
vated clrcumstances. But thn foeling here
ia that no clrcumstanco wlll ju&tlfy mob
law. His clear expositlon of the danger
from tho great number of hrutallzed ne
groes ln tha/ South was glveri eloso atten?
tion. A great many ln attendance at the
Chautauqua heard the truth enumerated
by Mr. Graves for the flrst time.
Regardless of tho subject matter of hla
speech, Mr. Graves nutde a dlstlnctly
good lmpression, and after he had left
tho speakers' ftand he was the center of
an enger crowd, who wanted to know
moro of tho matter of whlch he had been
spoaldng. The Georglan had no heslta
tlpn In answerlng all the questions asked
MR. GRAVES' SPETSCH. I
The tlme ls propitlous for tho dlBCua
sion, whlch the chautauqua has planned.
Wft have fallen upon broad and liberal
days. Tho records of the Spanlsh-Amerl
can war have removod from the Northern
mlnd tho last llngorlng eusrjlplon of the
loynlty and devotlon of the South to tne
Unlnn. The dlstrlbution of the nogro
through the Northern States has mado a
better acaualntanco with tho merlts and
capaclUea of the raco. Tho pollcy of
Prcsident Roosovelt tnward tho negro
problom has uneovered a revolutlon of
publlc aentlment upon that questlon
throughout tho republlc.
Tho natlonallzatlon of the mob splrlt
has brought tho people tosether In a aplrit
of ludlclal inqulry, and the tlme has come
when wlth many llluslons dlspelled. and,
wlth mnny prejudlcas destroyed. we can
nssemblo ourselves together from every
sectlon of tho country to diacuas remo
<ileg without passlon and to seek and to
speak tho open truth without bltterneaa
and nbsolutely without feur,
Tho mob has broken tho barriors ot
sectlon. nnd lynchlng ls at last a natlonai
crlmo. The splrlt of lawlessness ls clear
ly an evll of the tlmes. Tho touch.of tn?
mob has mado tho ropublio kln. For every
Newnan thore Is a Wllmlngton. For Pal
motto, In Georgia. KunBas has Its
Leavensworth. 8am Hoso Ia matched by
Alex Whlte. The Evansvlllo rlota surpass
tho rlots in Carollna. The moh that shoota
ln Mlsslsslppl ls nnswerod by the mob
that slays In Dunvllle, III., Akron, Ohlo,
stortna a negro's refugo In, Jn.ll almost
wlthln slght of Cnnton, where sleeps the
martyr Presldent?the beat belovod man
who has occuplod the Whlte, House alnco
the Father of Hls Country. Pana and
I'arteravlllo thrust thelr murdorous Wln
chestors Into tho black faces of tho work
men who come to delvo tlie mlnes of 1111?
nnls. A mob ln Chlcngo, ready wlth ropo,
ohases a negro through the streets. New
S'ork, the metropolls and the cosmopolla
of our world, has Its central sectlon fmm
Thirtleth Strcetto Thlrty-flfth. torn by a
raoa rlot ns flerco,and as relentless as
ever rnged ln New Orleans. And oven In
Bprlngfi'old, Mass.?rlght In New Eng
lnnd's noble heart?the pollce battalioiis
bnttled hnlf the nlght to rescjta from the
lynohers a blbulous cltlznn who with a
swlpa of a broken beer Rlasa had nlpped
from Its place anothev New Englund
gentleman's nbtruslvp nOB9. The quettiort
?has come hoiuo to the country at last.
And so in a splrlt without recrlmlna
tlon w* emerge from our *eparate glasa
houses nqt tn thrnw stones at the dwelllng
acrosrt the way, but to examlne our lossas
and 10 recasl our common dofenses for
the future of the State.
Not in thls goneratlon have questions
once sectional been ampUfled Into a larger
natlonai Uitorest, and If Provldence, in

the boaom ot the republlc. it has in ln
