EXCITING TIMES LAST NIGHT
More Trouble is Feared anil if

TOM CHAMBERS RAN AWAY
MnyfloUl was in a fever of excite
ment last night Iho excitement
nlthotich partially suppressed was
nlarmingly iutensc and thiro Is yet
fear of subsequent troublo between
tho whites and colored people
It was reported in Mayficld last
night that a mob of Paducah negroes
was on its way to help a Mnuield
crowd lynch Prof Green husband
of the woman outraged by Jim Stone
Absurd as such a rcjiort was it was
generally believed and hundreds of
good titizous armed thcmselros pre
pared to meet any emergency and
determined In their resolution to
vindicate themselves if any hostile
move was mado Tho rumor spread
rapidly and quite likely was exagger
ated and varied a little by each
narrator Karly In the evening when
no mob from Paducah arrived the
mob collected around the court house
square wlierc inas jioianda young
white man appeared for protection
He said that Tom Chambers hail
threatened his life and a crowd pro
ceeded to pay Chambers a visit
When Holand entered tho house
Chambers forced his pistol away and
shot him twice once in the nose and
once in tho neck but he was not
greatly injured
Chambers ran into the house anil
fthul the door and shortly after
wards the mob surrounded it He
was thought to bo inside but it ap
pears had gone on through and es
caped after he shut the front door
The mob set lire to the
inflammable structure nnd the hoarse
crackle of tho tliiinc was mingled
with volley after olley of Winches
ter shots and pistol discharges
The excitement was intense anil
the wonder is that somebody was not
killed
Chambers residence together
with all liis household goods some
livestock and in tact everything he
had except his family was burned
Tho infuriated and blooilthirsty
mob then set lire to an illicit whisky
den and in some way the wholesale
beer hout o of 11 F lloaz caught fire
ami was a total loss
It is said that the mobs intention
was not to destroy the latter estab
lishment -
Chambers has not since been seen
about Mayileld It was reported
that he and his family live m num
ber were all burned in tho contlagra
lion but tlii proved to bo false and
an examination of the debris ami
ashes today revealed no evidence of
cremated animal life except of tho
live block
Today there is still great exoitc
incut but little of it is manifested
It was reported that if the colored
contingent made any effort to avenge
tho death of Stone or roseut the
burning of Chambers- house
that an effort would bo made
to exterminate them without any
dilatory preliminaries A gentleman
from there this afternoon statos that
it would require very little to pre
cipitate a regular riot and that there
is nloutv of arms and ammunition
Tho lawless elcmout of tho colored
people have almost entirely disap
peared from Mayficld and all other
colored people aro uneasy
Mayileld Ky Dec 22 Thoro
is much suppressed excitement hero
over tho autious of the mob for the
lust two nights and it is feared that
there will bo more trouble
