Frank Gordon, the fisherman who fer
ried the murderer acroaa the Mississippi
river Wednesday night, identified Miller
aa the aame man. Still Miller pleaded
innocence, and John Ray, father of the
murdered girls, counseled patience.
The mob brought the priaoner to thia
city, arriving at 11:30 o'clock. There
were no.t leaa than 5000 people at the
depot, and the train was crowded.
Previous to this an agreement waa
made by the people to allow the father
of the children to prescribe hia punish

'and guards mounted a Bcaffald which
waa secreted, and John Ray, father of
of the murdered girls, made a talk, in
which he aaid:
"Thia ia the man who killed my chil

the proper time burn him."
The negro waa called upon and re

nerve, considering the cumstancea under

several questions and many called
on him to go on. But Sheriff Hudson
bogged to be permitted to put him in
jail and get aome reat for himaelf, which
he needed so badly. It waa finally
agreed to hang him at 3 o'clock, and
the negro waa placed in jarl to await the
time when he would be called forth.
At 3:20 o.'clock the negro wbb brought
from the jail to the principal atreet. A
chain waa around hia neck, and many
men were pulling at it. The crowd waa
wild, and no one could gnees at the fate
of the negro. He was almost auffocated
when the north end of the depot waa
reached, and the father of the girla re
lented to aome extent and suggested that
he be hanged, rather than burned.
At 3:27 hia body waa swung to a tele
graph pole directly at tbe north end of
the depot, and as he waß drawn np his
clothes were torn from hia body by the
maddened mob. He waa heard to Bay,
