the rather remarkable statement that

Merchant and Wife Brutally
Murdered?Three Negroes
Under Arrest.
imhlin, (la, June L'l'.- J. T. llewcll,
aged thirty-five a merchant of Long
Uranch, near here, and hit; wife, wen
murdered early this morning after be
ing called from their beds, a shotgun
being the weapon used. Bloodhounds
taken to the scene of the murder led
it posse to the cabin of three negroes.
Smith Harris, Joe McKay and Henry
Kitchens, who were hurried to the jail
and heavily guarded.
At ?> o'clock to-night several hurt- '
diail men gathered at the jail and a
ly nching appeared imminent. When the i
majority of the crowd withdrew for
j upper, the sheriff slipped his prisoners
out of the jail under heavy guard, !
placed them aboard a train and took
them to Kastmnn. and thence to Macon,
where precautions were taken to-night
In protect t hem from a mob.
From * t iib iiccs at the scene of the
murder it was supposed that shortly ;
before daybreak llewell was called ,
front his bed and went outside, carry- j
ing a lantern. His murderers riddled
his head with shot. Mrs. llewell, it ;
appears, hearing the shots, ran outside, j
and was killed at the doorstep. A neigh- j
hot- who heard the shooting notified
the sheriff, who took :< posse and bur- !
vied to the scene. When he arrived
llewell was still alive, but died while
bring brought here He war. tillable
to talk Intelligibly, but is said to have
indicated that, a negro had done the
shooting
The motive for the murder appears
to have been robbery, as Mrs. HcwoH'm
trunk waa ransacked, suit cares search
ed and thhrown into the yard, and a
small grip in which llewell is sup
posed to have kept money was found
in the woods nearby. Barefoot tracks

"While T am enraged and mortified
at the unjustified arrest of Lieutenant

them concerning the injury to my

Miss p:iiott and her escort were re
turning home along Broad Street short

under the covered way erected in front
of where the building of the Manufac

A heavy rain had loosened a mass

on Miss KUiott's back, ruining her

Lieutenant llochwalt told the offi

the matter.
Miss Klliott, her escort and several

a systematic revision of our banking

In localities whoer such relief is needed,
with protection from control or domi
nation by what is known as the "money

of business. All legislation on the sub- j
Ject of hanking and currency should !
i have for its purpose the securing of !
these accommodations on terms of ab
solute security to the public and of j
complete pay from the misuse of the '
power that wealth gives to those who 1
possess it '
