Finley. Ohio. March? 31. About
ono o'olook this morning a mob of
1,000 men BUrronndcd the j&u whore
Lytle, the man who assaulted and
fatally injured his wife and two
daughters with a hatchet Wednesday
morning was confined. The windows
of tho jail were broken, but the pris
oners cell oould not bo reaohod by
that moans. Then tho determined
men procured oii well driljs and bat
tered down tho doors and the murdor
ous wretch was at their moroy. Ho
was dragged out into tho street and
taken to a bridge a short distanoo
avay. A ropo was put around his
nook and one end thrown over a oross
piece of the struoture, when tho mob
wero in the a.t of pulling him up a
shot from a revolver parted tho ropo
and the wretch fell to tho ground.
But tho mob woro doterminod tho
vvretoh should die. lie was quickly
picked up and hustled to a telo
graph polo where the
lynching was comploted. Lytle
diod without a strugglo. Tho author
ities bad intended to scorotly convey
the prisonor to a suburb at 10 o'olook,
whero a train was to have been taken
for Lima", but their plans woro frus
trated by the vigilant mob. Lytlo
evidently expected tho face ho met,
for he left a noto asking that his body
be turned over tu his brothor and that
it bo buried beside his mother. His
victims arc still alive, but tho death of
Mrs. Lytlo and her dajghtor Delia is
hourly expected. When tho mob made
the rush on the jail they did not at
tempt to get tbo sheriff's keys, but
hurried baok to tho corridor. Lytle
was pcrfeotly game and oallcd the
mob's attention to his own cell as tho
one thoy wanted. As tho body was
pulled up a second time a dozen shots
woro fired and tho end of the awful
tragedy came. The mob is said to
have been of tho beBt oitizens, but was
poorly organized. .
