A mot of llfty or seventy five de
termined citizens of Mnyfield armed
on the 12f5 cannon hall this
morning after Jim Stone the negro
charged with committing the outrage
upon Mn J M U Green nt Mny
fleld night before lost but ui
thwarted by Jailer Miller and De
puty Grmly who hntl previously Ix cn
npprlscd of the mobs Intention and
inmlo preparations for saving the
prisoners neck
In the mob were nlmoit as many
boys as men ami lrof Green hus
band of the ictlm seemed to luve
Assumed the leadership nnd canicd
n long hemp rope with a noose in it
to use as n necktie if the oppor
tunity presented iOsolf
The cannon bull does not slop
In the yard at r5 but the mob
had dccidetl to leave the train at the
Jaeknon street eros dng anit there
was put off Conductor Tom Hull
was the first to report the presence
of the mob at the Inion Ieot and
by 110 there was cpilte a crowd
leisurely awaiting development
standing in the court house square
The mob formed In line at Jackson
street four nbriMt and almost uosc
Icssly trudged down Jackson street to
Kighth thence to Adams and then
down Sixth street to the jail
Deputy Jailer Grady had n sur
prise In store for them however as
the prisoner had only fifteen minutes
before Won spirited awny from the
jail placed in a hack with S icriff
Holland aud deputies and I iven
off
It was said that Stone was taken
to Kddyvillo and that lie was taken
alMiard the sanio train that the mob
vatiio on as It was going out This
Luwcrcr 13 discredited for Sheriff
Holland was seen at Sixth and A
Atns about 1 30 this morning during
the antics of the mob at the jail and
upon being informed as to the exist
ing state ot affairs remarked that he
guessed it was ad visible not to go to
the court house He stated that the
negro had not been taken away on
any train according to the gentle
man who met him but also said that
he was not in the city
The molt however surrounded
the Jail and was cordially invited lu
by Deputy Jailer Frank Grady who
had the gloomy basilic well lighted
nil over in anticipation of their
visit
You can conic in gentlemen and
look for yourself he announced
The prisoner lias been taken away
by the sheriff and you have tlw priv
ilege of looking through the Jail so
vou will bo satisfied
The mob fairly bristled with Win
chaster rillos shot guns and pistols
Most of the boys carried guns and
pistols too and one had an ax
while clubs were quite numerous
Keep watch men while we go
through shouted one of the leaders
aud four or live of them were turned
into the Jail to search at leisure It
waH a dejected looking crowd that re
turned and tho attention of the men
was then directed to the court house
lhs in that court house yelled
Bomo oc mul then the leader
shoutcJ Hurroiind that court house
surround that court house l and a
wild rush wuS maiio lor an sines i
tho edifice Llgljta and keys were
procured nnd every lipok and cranny
from cellar to cupola was thoroughly
searched but of course tlutf hud
been put on Ihe wrong trail and tliC
llnal cvide ices of discouragement be
gan to manifest themselves
A vain eTfort was made to go out
and stop the train Stone is supposed
to have gone on but it had departed
half an hour before
Somo ono about this juncture
started the report that tho prisoner
was being driven nbout in n hack to
await the disappearance of tho mob
ami some of the men scattered and
began looking for hacks All search
inUiis direction also proved fruitless
mul the mob partially illsperscu
large number remaining nt the coil
houso not convinced that their u
tended prey had escaped They in
tended to string Stone up nnd return
to Mayfield on tho 162 train but
missed the latter by n great deal and
wero compelled to start back on foot
or remain until the train this after
noon There wero not over aeveuty
llvc of them according to Conductor
inin uhn took their tickets
When Stone was taken from the
jail by Sheriff Ilollaud ho seemed to
realize his peril for according to
Deputy Grmly he trembled In every
limb and could hardly walk
The mob meant business aud It ho
had been gotten his life wouldnt have
been worth n picayune
There were quite a number of ra
duenh men in tho crowd that scorned
eager to take a linnd iu tho lynohliig

The
incut ordered the prisoner to the
MrUrnckcn county Jnil nnd ho was
taken charge of by Sheriff Scott
Cook and n deput They boarded
a local freight and soon it became
known that the olllcers had the haled
suspect on tho train preparing to
bring him to lmlucnli
A hundred people or more went
down nt onco ami Lucius lllalock
who was bolder thnn the rest board
ed thu platform ot the caboose nnd
forced his way half In when the olll
cers covered him with their guns nnd
told the mob If it inmlo nuy hostile
move lllnlock would be killed No
pacification could be secured until
lrof Green made n speech saying
that although he was satisfied Stone
was the right one there was not yet
In his opinion ample evidence to con
vict The train remnlncd there half
nn hour or more but there were no
further attempts nt molestation
Conductor Kullln had considerable
trouble in collecting fare and a num
ber of the men refusedjto pay it
When tho south bound alu arrived
at 1 s67 hngincer Joo Ilnmlnll ro
ceived orders to stop for nothing
and altlyugh somo of the mob had
become discouraged nnd reached the
yard In time to return home the
train swizcd past at a rate of forty
miles an hour aud they rotimicd to
the city
Sheriff Holland was seen by n Sscjc
repot ler this morning and sad that
btonc was near the city but that he
would not disclose his hiding place
until the mob left Ho heard several
groups of men maKimi uireais
acninst him for taking the prisoner
off but none of them recoguizc 1 him
iu the darkness o one knows the
hiding place except himself the
guards and the colored hack driver
who knows where tne olllcers goi oil
but not where they secreted the
prisoner
They had n good chance to iniig
the man In Mnyfield said Sheriff
Holland and I am inelinotl to think
that they refrained simply because
they did not want to take him nwav
from their own olllcers but concluded
to wait until he was iu our charge
and attempt to run the bluff in on

Stone was previously charged with
Annulling Mrs Win Ligon who

her door mb the yard and assaulted
He could not be proven guilty

Most of tho mob has now returned
to Mnyfield Some left on the early
local freight and others walkei
Stragglers with guns and other weap
ons could be hem on the streets until

Thev went through the lockup al

Judge Sanders was awakeued early
this morning by hearing a man

THE SPANISH ARMY TO RETURN
Havana Nov 24 The unexpect
ed arrival here of Capt Gen Weylcr
from tho province of Pinar del Rio
without having been successful in
bringing about an engagement of any
importance with the Insurgents under
Antonio Maceo caused much com
ment hero today and there were
many rumors in circulation On one
side it is asserted that Weylcrs re
turn means that ho will shortly re
turn to Spain on somo plea or anoth
er Officially however this is de
nied Tho impression prevails that
there will shortly bo Important chang
es here
La Luchas correspondent in the
field had an interview wsth the
previous to the latters
arrivalwe from Artcmisa and Ma
rt el anj it is gathered from state
ments ffu captaiu gcneral is said to
have mile that ho may not resume
personal chargo of the operations
against tho insurgents in Pinar del
Rio In this interview the captain-
general was asked for an expression
as to tho course of the campaign and
bo Bald
I am contented with it We en
tered Rubi hoping to give battlo to
the combined insurgent forces and
you know what tho result was They
went southward much to our regret
Maceo himself went toward Mocur
riyas Mayari and Corojal da
guas Nevcriuciess our columns in
two divisions arrived without firing
a single shot and only saw a band of
about 160 insurgtals in the woods
near San Luis
The captain general was then ask-
e if he knew tho whereabouts of An
ffSplo Maceo at present He an
swered
His whereabouts are not un
known The truth is that tho insur
gents were not found in the
mountains nor on the plains
Nevertheless they boast that our

He was then asked if many cattlo
remained in the part of Pinar del
Rio which he had visited and he
said
Not many Only a few bullocks
and calves remain The insurgents
have killed or captured the rest
Speaking of his operations since
leaving Havana for Captain Qcncial
explained that he had been all over
the mountains and had camped sev
eral nights in tho woods From
other sources it has been stated that
ho has frequently been without his
regular meals and that he has slept
on the ground in the rain
