the Improvised Jail here last night
-was guarded by State troops. Feeling
runs high anil every precaution
was being taken to prevent the mob
gaining possesion of the negroes. Who
thoroughly frightened deny that they
are guilty of beating Albert llockhold
and tieing him up, robbing his
home and mistreating his wife. Governor
Glasscock arrived here yesterday
In the hopes that he would he of
assistance In preventing a lynching
whicn accompanying him are Captain
Boggs- and- Captain .femes 1. Pratt, of
the adjutant generals office, at Clrarleston.
The troops are member?, of
Company A, of the cScond Infantry, of
; Sutton, under command of Captain
[ Miller and they will early Friday
morning act as escort to the suspected
men in conveying them to Sutton,
where they will be arraigned' for a- preliminary
hearing. Another ser'ous s
otubreak is expected at that time. d
It had been the Intention to have *
Mrs. Rockhold j, who has partially re- r
covered, identify the tnen yesterday. 1
hut euch was not the case, and' Bhe t
will hardly see the men till Friday j
night. Cast night It was the opinion t
of many that 'Rockhold wolad be t
unable to state p(psiti velvet hat the men t
were the ones who perpetrated the out- t
rage with Charles Lewis, who was 3hot a

male to effect Ills arrest.

reached their Impromptu Jail, the
town jail having ibeen a few weeks ago
burned to the ground, they began to
grow uneasy. Both denied their guilt
and admitted their Identity as Frank
and Wll'iam Johnson. Of the latter
the authorities hr.ve learned practically
nothing, while Frank Johnson,
It has developed, resides near Suiton,
where he has been a resident for the
past three years. His wife visited him
yesterday afternoon tor a short fine.
Sever h^s feeling In ail this section

against the two negroes. The towns- c
people ore being augmented by persons
from the surrounding country. ?
The governor arrived in Gassawny
at 7:30 o'clock last evening, and went
Immediately to tne Gassaway notei.
As soon as he had finished supper he
' hastened to the office of Mayor Perkins,
Where the negroes were confined.
Pour deep, members of the
militia are guarding the prisoners, .
whose assumed indifference has g'ven
place to craven fear since seeing the
extreme precautions being taken to
save them from death at the hands ol
a mob of whites ami learning that one
of the negroes who attacked Mrs.
Rockhold was shot by a posse yesterday.
No person is allowed to approach
within speaking distance of the prisoners
except on official business. The
action of the governor has had the effect
of establishing martiai law for
the time being. Governor Glasscock
several months ago announced Ills determination
to stamp out lynching in
Since yesterday morning whet, precautionary
measures were adopted to
prevent any interference with the
courts of justice, the authorities have
been acting under personal instruction
from the governor. It was said
last night that positive Identification

?e?n purposely deferred for several
lays In the belief that this will tend
to decrease the danger of mob violence.
Wllh difficulty enraged citizens were
restrained from lynching Johnson and

mountains, had returned to Gassaway.

was talk of lynching, this did not

Fearing the testimony at the hearng.

mnounced that hearing of further evllence

MEETINGS OF CENTRAL CHRISTIAN
ATTENTION?GLORYING IN THE
CROSS SUBJECT TO-NIGHT.
EvangeliBt 8alvely preached to a
splendid audience last night. Rrv.
Eddy and Rev, Broomfleld took pij'i In
the service. Glorying In the Gross
will be the subject of the sermon tonight.
Mr. Senlff will sing another of
ills effective solos.
The evangelists and pastor feel that
they have a mighty task on hand', but
they realize thai no movement ever
succeeded without a big job on hinds.
The chter and vital danger In any
movement Is that Its end may become
smothered in Its means. It must have
a great, challenging, sacrificial task.
A banquet Is a good thing as a sp-ingboard.
but not as a couch. As a
church of Christian men and women
we need a master passion for snnls.'
The Christian whose sense of respon-l
sibllity goes no farther than his own ,
soul has not aJvanced beyond the in-1
cubator stage of Christian life. God's |
call Is a call not only for volunteers, but
for recruiting officers. It Is also
a call to help unite the scattered regiments
of the gTeat army of on- Immortal
King under the one banner that
bears the Cross. "Christian unity
must come at the foot of the cross."
In these days the church is tinder fire

of the various denominational regiments
will tie church be rea<lv and
able to meet these attacks upon her.
At this very time the -magazines are
spending their muck-raking activities
on the churches. It is charged thct
the churches tn doing nothing twi
meet the groat scolal needs of to-day.
But the fact Is that nearly all of the
real philanthropic work of our limes
Is being done by professed Christians,
even though they are- working In so
called secular organizations. Many
organizations that the man of the
market had the street calls secular,'
such as the Y. Jrf.C.-A. and Social Settlements
and are In reality the
churches organized to work at a special
task. The church is -relating herself
to the problems of our times, for
were it not for the church there would
soon be no philanthropic work, just as
there is none to-day in countries where
Christianity !b not the current-religion.
But a united church could do a hundred
times more philanthropic work
and carry -Christian philanthropy
around; the world in this generation.

MAYOR HESS I

by Thomas J. Hess, mayor of Barns- <
vllle. Mayor Hess' attention was at <
tracted when the negro walked up to j
the nrayor'B residence at 210 Penn ,
avenue, and tried to gain entrance to $
the house. The negro tried three t
doors. During the time -that the man *
was trying -to get into the home j
Mayor Hess was getting ready to take t
him a prisoner. Just as the mayor ^
was ready to emerge frcrm his bouse
the negro scooted across the lot and t
tried the door of an adjoining neigh- t
bor. Mayor Hess did not wait a too- j
ment longer. He hurried over to <
where the intruder was and- placed ,
hint under arrest. The mayor then j
had to -hunt up the town Bergeant to
get his prisoner in the.Bamaville jail. ]
When the prisoner was safe behind t
lock and key of the iBarnsvllle prison t
Mayor Hess turned the negro over to t
the county authorities. He came to t
the city and notified the Prosecuting t
attorney that in searching the mat) t
he found a razor. This is an .offense e
against the Johnson anti-pistol toting e
law. The razor was discovered in f
making the second search. tc
The prisoner was brought to the
Qounty jail and is now an Inmate of c
the county penal institution, j r

they had no taste, relish or powero of *

were comiielled to stay out. The pre- c
tentiousness of many of the church's f
claims, the dogmatism of many of her c
deliverances, the ultra conservatism c
of many of her policies together with
her sterotyped fixedness in the worn- i
out and threadfbare forms of th ? ne- a
dieval and dark ages, ail conspired to ?
produce the wide-spread, deep-Banted s
unbelief of the recent past and the ir
doubt of the present among quite a c
number of strong men. Remove the S
cause and the effect will cease. Re- t
store the Christ-Church to the Christ- t

throbbing with the Christ-life an' he t
left it and every vestige of doubt and a

The solution is simple. Will the r

the church of these mill-stones, or will c
