Manhattan. Kan., Oct. 21. A crowd ot
excited citizens throntred .thestrbta here
last night In the vicinity of the county
Jail, threatening summary Vengeance
upon the murderer cf Sheriff S. B. Lafrd,
who was shot down yesterday while in
the performance of official duties at
L,eor.ardvllIe. a village twenty miles
northwest of Manhattan. The murderer
whore death la demanded by the clamor
ous mob la Ike Warren, a notorious
"bootlegger" of Leonardville. Sheriff
Lard and a deputy arrested Warren
at Leonardville yesterday afternoon up
on warrants sworn out by come of the
prohibition people ot the place, and
when the killing occurrod were on the
way with him to the railway station.
The deputy, who is said to have been
drinklns, carried two revolvers, one of
which he carelessly exposed within
rsach of the prisoner.
Itanker Make a Good Mint,
Warren, who was drunk, grabbed one
of the weapons and turned it upon
t-nenn Lard. He fired one bullet into
the t-herilT's head, and as the odicer
fell a second bullet took effect in the
body near the heart. Warren, breaking
loose, rrom his remaining captor, then
dashed down the street. His liight was
stopped by Hanker Sraiks. or Leonard
ville. who having seen the shooting of
the sheriff drew a revolver and bepan
"hooting at Warren. A bullet which
took effect in the neck brought the mur
derer to a standstill. The shootinc
caused fc-rent excitement at Leon
ardvilic, and tho murderer might
have been roughly handled but
for the fact that two deputv sheriffs
hurried off with him to the station, and
soon had him aboard the train buund
Well Done, Kepnty Sheriff!
Sheriff Lard died within a few min
ute?, and the new.-: of the murder as
telegrapher! her.1. When the train bear-
ng the murderer arrived here at 8:30
o'lJoek a crowd of COO men sjrrounde.l
the station. The cry of -lynch him"
was Immediately heard, and the crowd
gathered in upon tT. prlfrnwr. Thi rjx
deputy sheriffs who had V-..-r-i in cus
tody drew their ravolv, rs threat
ened to Bhoot th first man w!ci ir.:t a
hostile move. The murj. rer. who was
shaking with flight, was drawn to an
omnibus, the six deputies jumped in. the
horses were lashed into a run. and the
reins were not drawn until the countv
jail was reached. The mob foUtmod and
soon surrounded the caunty Jail, de
manding the life of the murderer. A
little girl came Into tha crowd carrying
a flour Rick containing thirty fert cf
rnje. She would not say who had sent
May Be a Lynching Yet.
The crowd became still more de
monstrative, and finally Deputy Sheriff
Marsh came to the jail steps and urged
the citizens to allow the law to take its
course. He told them that the murder
er had been shot in the neck and was
badly hurt, and urged the crowd not to
attempt the life of a man who might die
cf his wounds. This seemed to quiet the
croud for a time, but it soon became
known thnt Warren was not badly hurt.
and the talk of a lynching became more
pronounced. At 11 o'clock last night the
town was quieter, but it was reported
that several secret meetings were be
ing held with the intention of organiz
ing for a lynching.
