Their Xlves
Urbana 0 June4 4Cliek Mitch
ell by his own confession stands
convicted of one of the most henious
and revolting crimes a human being
can be charged with
Immediately after dinner Thursday
Judge Heiserman instructed Sheriff
McLain to impanel a grand jury at
once to consider the cas against
Mitchell In the absence of the Prose
cuting Attorney S S Deaton who is
away on legal business the court ap
pointed Attorney George Waite assist
ant prosecuting attorney to conduct
the proceedings before the special
grand jury
The sheriff was just 12 minute in J
impaneling the jury At 230 the jury
was sworn in by Judge Heiserman
whose charge was brief but to the
Qint and related entirely to the
Mitchell case
The jury after examining Dr Rob
ert Henderson Mrs Gaumers phy
sician Bruce and Charles E Gaumer
adjourned at 4 oclock until 730 Thurs
day evening At 830 the grand jury
returned an indictment for criminal rs
sault against Charles Mitchell
The grand jury had scarcely left the
courthouse until arrangements were
completed for the arraignment and
trial of young- Mitchell All the prin
cipal doors in the house were locked
anct bolted and members of the guard
were stationed in the halls at the same
on the inside All the other members
of Company D were lined up on the
outside ready to repulse any attack
Mitchell was brought from the jail to
the courthouse in the custody of Sher
iff McLane and Deputy Kirby sur
rounded by a square of the guards
He was hustled upstairs into the
courtroom without the knowledge of
the thousands of men who stood out-
side Death like silence prevailed dur
ing the proceedings which did not last
five minutes Mitchell remained stand
ing and was evidently quite scared
The court then appointed Mr
Flaugher to defend him In response
to the question of the court as to
whether the defendant would waive
the reading of -the indictment Mitch
ells attorney answered in the affirma
tive
Mitchell pleaded guilty The court
then at once sentenced him to 20 years
confinement in the Ohio penitentiary
the limit of the law
Mitchell was hurried back to jail
and the immense crowd on the outside
was none the wiser of what had taken
place It was part of the plan of
Sheriff McLain and his deputy Harry
Kirby to spirit Mitchell into a car
riage and drive him to Hagenbaugh
station or Woodstock and there board
the eastbound Pan handle3 which ar
rives in Columbus at about midnight
The exciting incidents of the last
two days had an unfortunate and de
plorable culmination at 230 Friday
morning The disorganized mob of
1500 stood on the streets all night
yelling and perfectly willing to lynch
a brute in human form guilty of a
fiendish crime
The mob had been slowly advancing
all night nearer and nearer to the jail
iThe guards were crowded closer to the
building as the night advanced Fi
nally a dozen men or more got onto
some steps leading to the back en
trance in the jail
A ifellow with a big sledge hammer
he had been carrying all night under
Ihis coat blazed away at the door
knocking it in At that instant the
guards who were stationed inside the
building opened fire and at least 20
jshots were poured promiscuously into
the crowd
The man who carried the sledge
hammer escaped without injury but a
young man named Higgins or Hagans
dropped dead shot through the body
The crowd scattered instantly Dur
ing the few seconds in which the firing
took place some deplorable work was
done Harry Bell son of Smith Bell
of this city and the man Higgins
whose identity can not be established
died almost instantly
The following were wounded Zach
Wank of Urbana shot in the hip his
wound considered fatal Dr Charles
Thompson of North Lewisburg shot
in the forehead Dennis Graney of
Urbana shot in the right foot Sher
man S Deaton the prosecuting at
torney shot in the hip Wesley Bowen
of Cable shot in the hip Gus Weiser
Urbana face wound Geo Ellicott
superintendent electric light plant
face wound Ray Dickerson living
ast of town shot in the shoulder
Bay McClure Urbana shot in the right
arm Ralph jMcComb shot in the arm
Most of those injured were standing
in the streetand were spectators
Gov Bushnell has just ordered one
of the Springfield companies here
Quiet prevails here now
Columbus 0 June 5 A special to
the Dispatch from Urbana says
Click Mitchell the Negro brute
has paid the penalty of his foul crime
with his life An outraged people
have taken the law into their own
hands and meted out to Mitchell the
punishment he so richly deserved and
nave obeyed the command and wish
of his prostrate and as is announced
dying victim
The sensational and unfortunate
events of the night intensified the
feeling against Mitchell if that was
possible and the determination be
oarae general that the brute should
never leave the town alive
After the firing of the military on
the crowd1 of spectators during the
early morning hours Gov Bushnell
ordered Company B Third infantry of
Springfield to come here at once The
Springfield militia arrived here at 710
Friday morning and left their special
train on the outskirts of the city or
near the water works The company
56 strong under Capt Bradbury
marched up town to the jail where

they found 2000 people surrounding
the jaiL
The company marched into the jail
yard and were met by Hon M Lewis
who said to Capt Bradbury
We dont want you now
Who are you
I am the deputy sheriff replied
Lewis
There is the sheriff over there
Pointing to Mayor Ganzon who at
that particular moment came forward
from the crowd on the courthouse
steps and proceeded to address the
militia and the crowd The mayor as
sured the militia that- their services
were not wanted that the people
were law abiding and would assist him
in preserving order that the company
could leave the courthouse yard and
when their services were needed he
would send for them The Spring
field company without waiting for
further orders marched down street
to the depot without as much as the
sheriff seeing them The local mili
tary company had previously refused
to serye longer and went to the second
story of te sheriffs residence and
tried to sleep
With no resistance offered the crowd
at once made a rush for the side door
two strong and determined men kick
ed it down in short order and gained
admission to the jail the crowd fol
lowing There were plenty of sledge
hammers chisels and other tools in
the crowd and the men went to work
Part of the crowd had previously
forced themselves upstairs into the
private apartments of the sheriff
and after looking about found a bunch
of keys which had been hid away and
which proved to be the Jkeys to the
jaiL The crowd got into the jail in
short order They did not wait to un
lock the door to Mitchells cell but
burst the lock with a sledge hammer
and the door soon flew open Mitchell
was standing in his cell and offered no
resistance and did not utter a word
Some one in the crowd had a rope and
it was placed over the brutes neck
and the crowd made for the door
Mitchell following at the end
In going down the steps on the out
side of the jail Mitchell fell down and
the rope slipped off his neck The
crowd surrounded him jumped on him
like a thousand hungry dogs after one
bone
The brute was kicked beaten and
almost killed right then and there
The rope was quickly slipped over his
head again and a rush was made for a
tree in the southeastern corner of the
courthouse yard in front of the court
house The end of the rope was
thrown over a good strong limb and a
thousand willing hands pulled the
wretch up The end was tied to the
iron fence and Mitchell was left hang
ing there in full view of several thou
sand people to die the death he had
brought upon himself
All this was done in shorter time
than it actually takes to tell the story
The lynching took place at about 720
Friday morning The men taking
part in it made no attempt te disguise
themselves but it is not known who
did the work and the person who at
tempts to find out will get himself into
serious trouble This much is known
however they did their work well and
thnt is all the people wish to know
It s doubtful if Mitchell died from
the effects of the hanging His miser
able life had been almost kicked out
of him when he fell down If any life
remained in his carcass it was stran
gled out It is the general opinion
that he was unconscious when strung
up His body was left hanging for an
hour or more and the people of the
city flocked to see it All classes of
people came to witness the spectacle
It was finally cut down and placed in
an undertakers box and left lying in
the courthouse yard open to public
gaze
Columbus 0 June 5 A special to
the Dispatch from Urbana O says
Sheriff McLain says he telegraphed
to Gov Bushnell at 10 p m Thursday
night for more military The gov
ernor replied that local power must be
exhausted first After the shooting
the sheriff asked again for help He
received no reply but learned that a
Springfield colored company had been
ordered to come The sheriff had the
colonel at Springfield order a white
company in place of the Negroes
Gov Bushnell returned here at 230
p m Friday He exhibits telegrams
showing he ordered support to Urbana
when asked for it
Urbana 0v June 5 Four prisoners
escaped while the mob was taking
Mitchell out to hang him
The coroner returned a verdict in
the case of Mitchell that he came to
his death by hanging in the court
house yard at the hands of an infuri
ated mob whose names are to me un
known
At 3 p m the body tff the Negro was
removed from the courthouse yard in
Undertaker Humphreys wagon Nand
the information was given out that a
Dr Meyers would be here from Colum
bus after him for one of the medical
colleges
Cincinnati June 5 After a thrilling
ride through a gauntlet of people who
sought his life Capt Leonard who
commanded the company of militia at
Urbana arrived in this city Friday
evening
A great deal of -bitterness exists n
Urbana over the killing of the people
on whom the militia fired and Capt
Leonard thought it best to leave for a
time He took a buggy from Urbana
to Springfield and upon arriving there
found an immense crowd which had
been informed of his coming
The crowd was very demonstrative
and for a time it looked as though vio
lence would be done Capt Leonard
Dayton O June 5 Sheriff McLain
of Urbana arrived in this city Friday
night at 8 oclock and was met at the
depot by hs brother-in-law Mr A J
Weaver of Linden avenue and was
driven to the home of the latter The
fact of his presence in the city and his
whereabouts were not ascertained
however until a late hour
He said that he left Urbana at the
urgent solicitation of personal friends
who insisted that his life was in peril

Tariff Bill Will Be the GenerarrTopie
of Discussion in the Senate
The Great Bone of Contention Will B
the Sngar Schedule The Tobacco and
Agriculture Schedule Will Follow
the Sugar Schedule The House
Washington June 7 While the
tariff will continue the general topic
of discussion in the senate during the
present week there is no certainty as
to what portion of it will receive es
pecial attention This uncertainty is
due largely to the difficulty of de
termining when thev sugar schedule
will fee taken up It is so generally
understood that this schedule will con
sume consideration time that there is
no effort to outline beyond it the
course of proceeding The wood
schedule will afford a brief respite
Monday before reaching the sugar
question as that subject was left un
disposed of when the senate adjourned
on Saturday Senator Allen probably
will enter a motion that may lead to
other speeches than his own
Whether the sugar schedule will be
taken up in order is still undetermined
There are no differences of opinion on
the subject but the prevailing desire
is to get the schedule out of the way
as soon as possible This is the case
on both sides of the chamber but it is
especially true of the republicans as
the responsibility for action rests
there Still there is a desire
among republican senators that
there should be absolute agreement
among themselves on the rates of this
schedule before entering upon its dis
cussion in the senate and it is realized
that this may be difficult of attainment
without a further exchange of opin
ions than has yet been permitted
There is no doubt in any
event of a postponement un
til Senator Aldrichs return to the
senate He is still confined to his
room but is expected to be out early
in the week That the Hawaiian
treaty will be protected by the finance
committee is considered settled but a
caucus may be necessary to determine
whether other changes should be
made Senator Pettigrew has decided
definitely to offer his anti trust amend
ment in connection with this schedule
but beyond the fact that it will lead
to a number of speeches there is no
certainty as to its course or its fate
The tobacco schedule immediately
follows the sugar schedule but if it
should be reached on Monday it would
be necessary also temporarily to pass
it over as the committee has promised
the tobacco men a hearing on Monday
night They will ask for two dollars
on wrapper and 35 cents on filler to
bacco There is also an inclination to
return to the language of the Wilson
law on this subject This is under
stood to be the wish of both the im
porters and the tobacco growers
There are many sharp contests ahead
on the paragraphs of the agricultural
schedule which is next after tobacco
including those on rice on which there
will be an effort to secure a return to
the house rates on cattle on which it
will be claimed there should be an ad
valorem rather than a specific duty
and on fish fruits chicory and salt
The innovation of a duty on tea is also
proposed on this schedule but it is
practically certain that this provision
will be withdrawn by the committee
Thus what would have been one of the
severest contests over the bill will be
avoided The cotton and spirit sched
ules will it is now thought excite
comparatively little debate
The house has no work ahead of it
this week and it isHhe intention of the
majority leaders to adjourn Monday
until Thursday and from Thursday un
til Monday Mr Simpson and other
members of the minority doubtless will
essay the usual manouvers with the
purpose of embarrassing the republic
ans but in the present condition of
the house their latitude is narrow and
they easHly can be overborne by their
adversaries

cially announced Friday that the pres
ident and postmaster general will con
sider as having expired all post
offices which are due to expire
between now and July 15 It
is understood that the matter
was discussed and the decision reached
at Fridays cabinet meeting The rea
son assigned for the modification of

the absentees at Fridays cabinet
meeting The case of the Valencia
the Ward line steamer which was
compelled to haul to by a shot fired
across her bows from a Spanish cruiser
as she was coming- out of the port of
Guantanoma was briefly discusssed
The incident occurred May 2S
Secretary of State Sherman ex
plained that the act of the
Spanish vessel could not be regarded
as an offense against the United States
as the Valencia was showing no colors
and the purpose of the Spaniard was
simply to compel her to show her flag
As soon as the stars and stripes were
run up she was allowed to proceed
No other important matters were con
sidered by the cabinet
It is the prevailing belief at the
white house that President McKinley

Senator Tillman from the commit

they exercise over liquors of domestic
manufacture The bill is intended to
meet in part the defects in the state
dispensary law pointed out in the re
cent decision of Jiudge Simonton
Senator Allison who in the absence
of Senator Aldrich has charge of the
tariff bill expressed the opinion Fri
day that the sugar schedule would be
reached in its order on Monday and
that it would be taken up then if Sen
ator Aldrich by that time should
have so far recovered as to be able to
take charge of the schedule on behalf
of the republicans If Mr Aldrich
finds it impossible to be in the cham
ber when the schedule is reached re
publicans will ask that it be passed
temporarily because of his generally
conceded superior information on the
subject Senator Allison says how
ever that it is his desire that this
schedule should be disposed of as
promptly as possible
There is a possibility that the to
bacco schedule may also be passed
over in case Senator Aldrich is not
present
