LYNCEING OF THE DIFATIS.
the Atrocity Likely to Involve tk
Country in Serions Trouble
Washington, Aug. 9. The state de
partment has received from the Ital
ian authorities a copy of the complete
report made by Marquis llomano, sec
retary of the Italian embassy here, on
his personal investigation of the re
cent lynching of five Italians at TaJu
In a Serloa I.isbt.
The report presents the affair in a
serious light. As a whole the Italian
authorities view the matter of the
lynching as one of unusual atrocity
and without the mitigating circum
stances which had been urged in pre
vious affairs of this kind.
I)r. IIoiIkck Watt the Acirrrmor.
In describing the first affray, which
led up to the lynching. Marquis Ko
mano's re)Hirt states that Dr. Hodges
was the first to draw his weapon, and
that not until he had tired one shot
and was about to fire the second one
at t harles Difata, who was at the time
pistrate on the ground, did the broth
er, Joe Difata. fire his shotgun from
the store near by. This last shot, it is
pouted out. was in defense of the
fallen brother, and was not a wanton
attack upon Dr. Hodges.
The llesiuuine of Ihe Affray.
The circumstances leading up to the
affray are described in detail. Accord
ing to this account Charles Difata was
alone when Dr. Hodges Kissed. There
is no effort made in the report to ob
scure the fact that Charles Difata
made the first offensive overture. But
it is contended that this was not ac
companied by the use of firearms or
even a movement to draw them. It is
said, however, that Charles Difata up
braided Dr. Hodges in an offensive way
for having killed an animal and ac
companied this by a blow of the fist.
Then, it is stated. Dr. Hodges shot at
Difata. Whether or not the shot took
efT ct it was not possible for the Ital
ian authorities to learn, as the bodies
of the men. after being lynched, were
disfigured and disposed of. But at all
events i! is stated that Charles Pi Tata
was on the ground following the shot
from Dr. Hodge's weapon. At this
point Joe Difata made his appearance
anil seeing his brother down and a
second shot aliout to lie fired, shot at
The Firxt Lynehins.
Then followed the lynching of these
two Italians. Joe Difata and Charles
Difata. The mob took them before
they had lcen arrested.
I'p to this point, according to the
Italian report, only these two Italians
had figured in the affair.
Knew 0thi1iK of the Oeenrrence.
The report goes on to state that
throughout the occurrence the three
other Italians Frank Difata. Joseph
Feducio and John Gerami, were in an
other street and did not know what
was occurring. It is stated that they
did not take part in the attack on Dr.
Hodges, anil they did not even know
r.f it until some time r.fter. when the
local otliccrs came to arrest them.
This arrest was accomplished and the
three Italians were actually placed ia
Three More LynchlnsrM.
The report then brings out the fact
that the mob. having already lynched
Charles and Joe Difata. turned their
a'trution to the three Italians under
tirri st. Two of these men, Joseph Fe
ducio and Frank Difata, were first
t:.ken from the officers and lynched.
Subsequently, and some little time af
terward, the mob returned and look
John Gerami and lynched him.
Three DiMtinet Movement.
In this circumstantial way the re
port brines out that the mob made
three distinct movements fcgainst the
Italians and that there was sufficient
time for the Word to cool and for the
anger of the lynchers to abate after
