Birmingham, Ala.. Dec. 0. Tho
discovery of Mrs. Hawo's horribly
manclcd body, and tho blood-stainod
clothing of the missing child, roused I
tho peoplo ol this city to a pitch novor
dreamed of. Long boforo darkness
set in tho people bogan. to gather,
first in groups, then in crowds, and
crowds uniting, formed a mass of
surging humanity, all bent on one ob
ject, that of vengeance upon tho man
who had committed the most bloody,
brutal crimo in tho history of Alabama.
Sheriff Smith, well knowing the tem
per of tho people, had plaoed a strong
guard at tho jail and had placod in
their cbargo a gatting gun. As mid
night approaohed tho people centered
aboot tho jail. At last tHeir anger
became uncontrollable, and at 1ZU& an
attack was made on the jail defended
br Sheriff Smith and his sturdy de
tailed forco. A hoarso signal came
iroui ine msiuc, "Diana on or mko
the consequences." For an instant
tho mob hesitated, then thoso in ad
vance, pressed on by the crowd in the
rear, mado a dash for the jail. "Halt,"
carao tho command from tho sheriff,
followed an instant later by iho fatal
word, "Fire." Tho deadly rattlo of
rifles and revolvers in tho hands of
the guards was deepened by tho heav
ier discharge) of tho gatling gun. An
answering tiro camo from the inob, but
in their madess nono of tho shots
woro well dircotod and none took ef
fect. Thero were over five hundred
rounds discharged, and when tho
smoko cleared away what a pitablo

The suit now going on lu the federal,
court, styled Hanrlok et al. vs. Han
rick et al., almost equals tho famous
suit of Jarndyce vs". ' Jarndyce. It
embraces nearly one hundred thous
and aores of land laying In the south
eastern part of MoClelland county
and Falls, Milam and Bell counties.
It Is illustrative or those early times
in Texas when a man ooufd buy a
league of, 'land for a pair of boots.
Generally men did not have the boots.
But 0110 Ed. Hanrlok from Alabama,
happened to have several pair and he
bought several leagues. Hanrlok
died without Immediate heirs and
the land was claimed and seoured by
E. Q. Hanrlok of Falls county, who
was a nephew of the deceased. There,
happened to be other nephews and
nelees lu Ireland, 'and these came to
light and suit was Instituted for
them. The litigation has lasted now
ever twenty years. It was decided
last, in favor of the Irish heirs, In the
Suprome court of the United States
and now the suit is for partition.
During the years that have elapsed,
the oountry has been settled up and
great Hue farms have been opentfem

Alone In London.
'Alone lu London" Is the best En
glish comedy drama that has come
across tho water for a good many
years. "Silver King," "Lights o'Lon-
don," "Romany Rye," and others of
thatclasB that have entertained our
public during tho past four or Ave
years were excellent plays. Wo
would not for a moment gainsay their
reputation, but "Alone In London'
occupies a higher level than any, of
them, and whllo comparisons are not,
as a rulo, tho proper thing, a compar
ison In this csbo will serve such a
good purpose tha't it will be ventured,
It .will serve to bring more clearly be
fore the mind a comparative under
standing ot the morltofthe last of
England's offerings, as there are very
few who have not seen the plays men
tioned. "Alono In London" 1b the
superior of them all.
Tho play consists of a prologue and "
four aots. In the prologuo Is present
ed a happy rustio scene, wherein the
horolne, "Annie Meadows," refuses
au honest, hearty miller for a olty
gentleman of elegant moin. In the
tlrst aot, nn interval of six years
having olapsod, tho gentleman Is dis
covered to be an aroh rascal, a bur
glar and professional vlllian. His el-
eganoo continues, but his victimized
wlfo Is in rags and supports herself
and child by soiling flowers on tho
street, having resisted the persuasions
of her husband to become his accom
plice. Tho lover's oaresses are the
husband's blows, and fond words
have giveu place to fury. Finally the
husband endeavors to murder his wife
by imprisoning hor In the sluice gate
house and turning on the water a
superb scene, by the way but the
oountry miller having come to town
to call on the wife, and having learn-
of her mistery, happens lu at the su
preme moment and saves her life.
The subsequent act sees all her wrongs"
righted and happiness is restored,
Suoh is au outline of thegelioral nature
of the plot, whloh couveys no concep
tion of the numerous Incidentals that
give It life and energy. Cincinnati
