y7hil8 the Blood of His Sister's Child
Calls out For Vengeance on
His Guilty Head?
An O'er True Tale Which Almost Com
pels Respect for the Mandates
of Judge Lynch.
okni.ca, s. u., .Marcti 4. News ol a
blood-curdling tragedy comes from Town
ville, a small hamlet ten miles from here,
and a state of excitement among the peo
ple which well nigh led to lynching. John
Barnes, a large-framed colored man, was
one of the most noted negroes of that
section. Unlike most of his race, he is
a man who lias a sharp eye to business,
and makes members of his family
work more like slaves, "Dey made me
work," he would say, "when I
was a boy, and no lazy folks can live
about me." So grinding were his exac
tions and so terrible the oaths that ho
would hurl upon those who chanced to
be in his service, that ho became tho
most hated man of his race in the vicin
ity. Some months ago his sister, Mrs.
Craft, died, leaving an" only son about
seven years old to the care of hi r brother,
begging him to till the place of a father to
her child. The boy, notwithstanding his
tender years, was made to do the work of
a man In a cotton patch last December.
He would not get to bed till ten at
night, and had to be up by three in tho
morning. When he failed in this his
inhuman uncle would tie him to a post,
strip his back, and lay heavy welts upon
his bare skin. These repeated instiga
tions and want of sustaining food broke
the boy down completely. Last Thurs
day morning, when Barnes called the
boy up, the little fellow pleaded his
inability to rise, when Barnes grabbed
him roughly, saying: "You won't get
up? We will see who is master here."
Taking the child to a post B irnes
stripped him naked, stood him again-t
it, tied a rope around his knees to the
po.-t, and then running it up lie
run one coil around his waist
and the post, tuti at last he ran
it around the boy's neck and the post,
leaving the lad's anus free. Thus he was
pinioned lirnily, so he could hardly
squirm under tlie -repeated welts which
were laid on him. Barnes used hickory
switches, cutting the skin at almost every
blow. After he had laid on about twenty
he fiercely demanded to know if the boy
would get up early hereafter. The latter
only drooped his head in exhaustion,
which the fiend understood to be a nega
tive reply, whereupon he began laying on
again, becoming perfectly furious in his
freu.v, ami it was only w hen a colored
woman who stood by earnestly begging
Barnes to desi.-t, rushed up and grasping
the madman's arm, exclaimed: "John
Barnes, you have killed your sister's
child," that the brute paused. Sure
enough the boy's body was stiffening
into tlie rigidity of death. When the
alarm was given a most horriole sight
met the gaze of the people who came to
the spot. There the body stood bound
to the post by ropes, a perfect mass of
blood and mangled llesh, the marks In
dicating at least one hundred and sixty
clearly dellned lashes. He was taken
down and as tenderly cared for as possi
ble, when word went forth, "Where is
Barnes? Let's hang him up. He deserves
all the rope, shore!" Wrought to mad
ness by the sight before them, negroes
set out In pursuit of Barnes, but could
not Unci him. Threats of lynching were
heard on every side. Whites also joined
in the search, and fortunately for Barnes
It was Into their hands he fell, and by
them he was taken to Anderson jail,
where he now awaits the action of the
An Orthodox Execution.
Piin.AnFi.riUA, Pa,, March 4. This
morning John McGinuis, the convicted
murderer of Mary Read, his mother-in-law,
was hanged in the corridor of the
Moyaniensing Prison, The execution of
the death sentence was carried out very
quietly and privately. McGinuis passed
his last night on earth quietly, sleeping
most of tlie time. At six o'clock this
morning his spiritual adviser was ad
mitted to the cell and religious exercises
were kept up until the very last moment
on the scaffold. At 10:110 Sheriff Kai in
and his deputies marched into the
cell. The Sheriff Informed him that the
hour for carrying out the dread mandate
of the law," had arrived. McGinuis'
spiritual adviser, Father Masterson, an
nounced that lie was ready. Tlie pinion
ing of the arms was quickly done and the
cap was placed on his head, when the
inarch to the gallows was takeu up.
McGinuis was supported by Father Mas
terson, When the gallows was reached
his legs were strapped together and the
noose placed about his neck. Tlie relig
ious exercises were brief, and at their
conclusion tho cap was drawn over his
face and the drop fell, and McGiuuls had
expiated with his life the crime of which
lie was convicted.
Perished from the Cold.
