Lewer Market street was the scene of a

Jeseph Meran fired two shots at a

Joffcrsen, neither of which took effect,
but produced such a scare that Jeffersen

The negre was standing in a crowd of
seven or eight people near the corner of
Frent street when Meran stepped up and
pulled his pistol. Jeffersen started te
run nnd Mernn shot at him twice.
Frem what can be learned this morning,
the affair was the outcome of an old

NASHVILLE, Tcnru, .May .2. Friday
night a mob of three hundred men came
in from Geedie tsvllle, and Gov. Bu
chanan, with the aid of the police, suc
ceeded in persuading them at first, then
driving , them back. Twe men were
mortally wounded, Charles .Bear and
A. U. Guthrie, the latter of whom lived
in Nashville, and was the engaged lever
of Mary Brace. .Beth are dead.
At 5 o'clock Saturday morning the
mob marched off defeated. They rested
four miles from the city, and waited for
reinforcements. People swarmed Inte
Nashville from the surrounding towns
nnd country. Fully six thousand
strangers came in, nnd stayed en the
square during the morning. They came
from twenty towns, nnd swore te lynch
Eph Grizzard and Chief of Police Clack
and Police Sergeant Davis, who shot the
two men Friday night. Every man was
given orders te be ready at a given sig
nal. A deputation of citizens, headed
by a prominent wholesale grtjecry mer
chant of Nashville, waited en Mayer
Guild, and served this notice en him:
r "We de net want te shed a single
drop of bleed. We have come for Eph
Grizzard, and we are going te have him.
Take away your police, or we will sheet
them down like dogs,"
Mayer Guild said he had te protect
tl . city.
.iarly in the day a wealthy merchant
of Goodlettsville, mounted a goods box,
and after describing the awful outrage
of the girls, which brought tears into
t'le eyes of thousands, told them te be
ready. Men cried and sobbed like
bibles, and frenzied cries went up. But
the leaders held them back for rein rein
fureements. The huge crowd was
swelled te ten thousand by sympathiz
ing citizens of Nashville. Pistols were
openly carried, and truck wagons were
leaded with shotguns for the final at
tack. At neon Gov. Buchanan issued a proc
lamation, asking that the mob disperse,
and pledging himself personally te see
that justice was done. This was hooted
and jeered at. 4
An attempt was 'made te smug
pie Eph Grizzard away by Jailer .Willis.
He had Gizzard dressed as n woman,
and would have carried him away in
ten minutes, but a rumor of this reached
the enormous crowd.
At ten minutes before 2 o'eleck, Dr.
Davis called order en the public square.
He stated that a committee of three
would be appointed te demand Eph
Grizzard. Who would volunteer? A
A dozen men stepped forward. Then
the crowd started with a shout toward
nnd down Frent street.
In the rear of the Branden Printing
Ce.'s building a halt was called, and a
committee of three was sent te the jalL
The lock of the immense iron gate had
been broken the night before. Entrance
was easily effected. Jailer Willis was
met in the halL
"Mr. Willis," said the spokesman,
very quietly, "we have come for Eph
Jailer Willis drew back, sayingt"Gen
tlemen, it is my duty te protect what
ever prisoners are in this jalL"
Three hands seized Mr. Willis, He
was bent back and the keys taken from
his pockets. Jailer Willis had just come
from the front corridor of the cage, ?
where he had been dressing Eph in
Tlwusnnds M people watched the
scene from the tops of adjoining build
ings. After the keys had been secured,
ene of the committee told Jailer WiUlsx-
that he would go in and get Eph, while
the ether two held him and prevented
ether priseners from escaping. Cheer
after cheer rose from the mob outside.
"Remember your wives, your daughters
and your mothers," was the cry.
Then the committee qf three appeared,
and between them was the black head of
Epli Grizzard. At the sight of the black
fiend, mob and spectators alike burst
forth into nn exultant cry. Around his '
neck was a rope. A wild rush was
then made for the square, these about
him slapping his head with open
palms and Eph crying: "Quit hitting
me I'll go." lie was jerked down and
dragged ever the rough cobblestones, .
Ills eyes and tengue protruding.
Frem the square the mob rushed te the
Cumberland river suspension bridge. The
Negro was thrown ever the bridge, and
dropped fifteen feet He was hauld up
again, and dropped again. This time
Ids neck was broken. Fifty Bheta were ,
fired into his body. Fifty thousand peo
ple viewed the swinging body.
Cries then went up for Chief of Police " j
Clack and Sergeant Davis, who shot the , ?
two men the night before. "Hang
them!" was shouted, hut they could net
be found. Beth had disguised them
selves and fled te the country. Had the
two ofllcers been caught nothing could
have saved them.
