AFTER THE LYNCHERS.
Attorney-Ceneral Rogers of Louisiana will
Proceed Against the Self-Appointed El
ect tinners of the Sicilians In New Or
leans if He Caa tiet the tirand Jury to
Take Action In the Matter.
New Oki.eaxs, March 24. Two in
dictments were returned by the grand
jury last nighL supposedly against men
who were concerned in the bribery off
the jury which failed to convict the
murderers of Chief 1 1 ennessy . A ttorney
(Jcneral Rogers will go before the grand
jury to-day, and will call a large nmn
lier of witnesses who were present at
the preliminary meeting of the mob
around the Clay statue, and who saw
some of the scenes at the parish prison.
"i want to say," Attorneyrfieneral
Rogers said yesterday, "that I am not
in sympathy with that uprising. I re
gard it as a deplorable affair, and if in
dictments are returned I mran to fight
to the bitter end. I do not believe in
mob violence as a means of enforcing
the law. It may be true that the jury
in the Hennessy ease was bribed, but
that does not justify the mob in assum
ing the right to execute the law. 1 am
in possession of enough evidence to
justify me in proceeding at once if 1
:an get the grand jury to help me.
The attorney general's proposed ac
tion is regarded as a reflection on Gov.
Xicholls position. The governor.
though he was in New Orleans the
day of the uprising-, and has been here
ever since, has not once given voice to
his opinion about the lynching.

yesterday morning President Sherman
informed the directors that the impair

W48HIXGTOS. Starch 23. Gen. Joseph
-1 J hnston died shortly after 11 o'clock
atrtrday night at his residence on Con
lecticut avenue. The general had been
suffering for the past three weeks with
an affection of the heart, aggravated by
i cold which developed soon after Uen.
Sherman's funeral in Xew York. His
physician tried to keep his strength op
far some days, but his advanced age
rave little hope for his recovery from
'.he beginning of his illness.
The general did not seem to suffer in
ht? least and was conscious to the last.
t his bedside were ex-Uov. McLane of
Maryland, the general's brother-in-law.
tnd the nurse.
The immediate cause of death was
mart failure, the result of depone .-ation
f the heart, due in a measure to a cold,
ct more particularly due to extreme
hi age. At times for about two years
ieu. Johnston has shown unmistaka
ble signs of a breaking down. His mind
flen became bewildered, ao that he
xmld not tell where he was or how he
awe there. Some days after the Sher
m.n funeral .the general one night got
ip out of his bed while in a state of pro
ui perspiration, which greatly aggra-.-a.ed
the slight cold with which he was
fh.-n suffering. This brought on a se
vere attack of his old heart trouble,
vhich completely prostrated him.
His physician. Dr. Lincoln, succeeded,
However, with much difficulty in ar
resting the disease for a time, and for a
day or two he seemed to be improving.
On March 13, however, he went down
stairs without assistance, as he had
done before, but it proved too much for
his strength, and only with the aid of
llov. McLane could he again reach his
bed or even rise from the sofa where he
was sitting. From that time he con
tinued to grow worse until about 9
o'clock Saturday evening, when Dr.
Lincoln found him perfectly comfort
able and apparently a little better.
While his friends and attendants knew
that he might pass away at any time,
vet they bad received no warning that
the end was so near.
Cot. McLane entered the room at a
little after 11 o'clock, and as he ap
proached the general's bedside he heard
an almost inaudible sigh and the gen
eral was dead.

tive is a sister, Mrs. .Mitchell, who Uvea
