Mitchell. the negro convicted of
criminal assault on Mri. X. M. tau
mer, was handed to a tree in the
court house yard at 7:20 this morn
ing bj a mob composed of citizens,
who made no attempt to conceal tin
act. The sensational unfortunate
vents ef last Bight, which culmi
nated in the militia firirg upon the
crowd surrounding the jail and kill
ing two and wounding tlx other mei,
intensified the feeling against
Mitchell until the determination be
came general that he should never
leave the town alive. After the fir
ing on the crowd Gov. Bushnell or
dered a company of the Third infan
try from Springfield bv special train.
It arrived at 7:10 and marched to
the jn.il. where it found 2,000 people
surrounding the structure.
The major assured the comman
der that their services were not
wanted, as the people were law
abiding, and asked them to with
draw to the train, and in case their
services were needed, the j would be
sent for. Without waiting further
orders they marched down the street
to the depot. The local militia pre.
viouslj refused to serve longer and
went to the second story of the
sheriff's residence and tried to sleep
With no resistance the mob rushed
to the side door, and soon gained en
trance to the jail and broke in the
door to Mitchell1 cell. He offered
no resistance as the rope was placed
over his head. Going down the
steps outside the jtil Mitchell fell
ami the rope slipped off his neck.
The crowd surrounded him and
jumped on him like a thousand hun
gry dogs after one bone. The
wretch was almost kicked to death
before the rope was again secured
bout his neck. He was dragged to
the front of the court house and the
end of the ropo thrown over a limb
and the brute pulled up. The end
was tied to a fence and Mitchell left
hanging in full view of scvtral thou,
sand people. The body was left over
an hour before it was taken down
and placed in an undertaker's box,
which remains ia the court bouse
yard in full view of the public.

Chicago, June 4. Governor Altgeld
denounces the report of Senator Berry,

said yesterday: "After the Globe failure

looked after the question of enforcing

but it is absoultely untruthful. The tes

shows It to be untruthful. But it Is Just
what was to be expected of Berry."
When a?ked if he regarded the report

Madrid, June 4. A cabinet council waa
held yesterday, the queen regent presid
ing. The retiring premier, SenorCanovas
del Castillo, made a long statement re
garding Cuba, the Philippine islands, the
internal situation, the relations between
Spain and the United States and the in
cident which led to his resignation. Her
majesty declared herself satisfied with
the explanation of Senor Canovas, and
begged him to continue the government
until the crisis was solved. Senor Cano
vas, after the council, said the queen
had asked him to" telegraph Marshal
Martinez de Campos asking him to
come to Madrid, and that the latter had
replied that he would arrive here to
day. Senor Canovas added that a solu
tion cf the crisis will be difficult, and will
depend upon the conferences between
the queen regent, Genral Campos and
Senor Sagasta, the Liberal leader. It is
said that the latter is prepared to apply
extensive reforms to Cuba through the
instrumentality of General Campos, who
It is believed will shortly succeed Gener
al Welyer as captain general of Cuba.
Excites Interest at Washington
Washington, June 4. The resignation
of the Canova9 cabinet at Madrid ex
cites much interest in official quarters
here, owing to its possible effect upon
the policy of Spain toward Cuba and the
cttitude of the United States toward the
conflict. Minister Dupuy de Lome will
not discuss the situation publicly, but
those who are near to him say that he
takes the change philosophically, and is
not greatly surprised, as recent events:
at Madrid have indicated that a rupture
was inevitable. Among officials who are,
familiar with the status of affairs it ia
believed that the change will not involve
any radical departure from the present
policy cf Spain on Cuba. The view is
expressed that the queen will invite
Canovas to form a new ministry, and
that the premier will then overcome the
friction which led up to the present
crisis by omitting from the new cabinet
these elements which caused the per

Although the Duke of Tetuan is not

forward. The crisis comes at a time
when Madrid is about to enter upon its
period cf summer vacation. The Duke

family and most of the government
leaders will go to San Sebastian. But

Question Interesting Washington Officials
Havana Editor Waxes Wroth.
Washington, June 4. The question
has arisen here as to the' effect of a
change In the Spanish cabinet upon the
stay of Minister Dupuy de Lome In
Washington. In the event of a com
plete change of ministry, with a Lib
eral premier and cabinet, it is under
stood that De Lome will place himself
at the disposal of the new government.
so that it will be free to continue his
service or accept his resignation as it
sees fit. Under the diplomatic system
of Spain the twelve leading foreign
posts, including alt the ambassadors
and the leading ministers, are subject
to the will of the government, so that a
change of cabinet may entail a change
of foreign ministers at these twelve
posts. This depends, however, on the
circumstances !n the country to which
a minister is accredited.
A dispatch from Havana gives ex
tracts from editorials in Diario de la
Marina. In one of these, the paper
gives its attention to United States Con
sul General Fitzhugh Lee, charging him
with ignorance of the Spanish language
and with being surrounded by Ameri
cans born In Cuba who are generally
hostile to the Spanish government.
Diario further reflects upon the judg
ment of the United States consul gen
eral, and prints a letter from a corre
spondent in Santa Clara, making a sav
age attack upon the United States con
sul at Sagua Ia Grande, Walter B.
Barker, charging him among other
things with furnishing relief in the
shape of provisions to Messrs. Selglie
and Yova and their families, both of
whom are said to be owners of sugar
estates and not in need of assistance.
The . correspondent of Diario de la
Marina used this allegation to reflect
upon the honesty and good faith of the
reports of Barker to his government.
