CARNLGTE" LIBRARIES USELESS
Laick of Harmony Between Architects and
liorarlans Hlanied for the Construc
tion of I'seless Structures.
Chicago, April 1(5. Owing to a lack
of harmony between the architec ts tnid
the librarians, the Carnegie libraries
scattered throughout the country are
practically worthless, according to
the librarians now in session at the
convention of the Illinois State Library
association, at the University of Chica
go. In a discussion of the subject of
"Library nrchiticture," Miss Mary A.
"With tlv? springing up of so many
Carnegie libraries in this state there
has come need for united action be
tween architects and librarians for the
improvement of buildings in which the
collections are to be stored.
"The local boards-ha ving the erec
tion or the buildings In charge are
usually unlit to properly perform their
functions, but after a merely superficial
view of library buildings in large cities
they go back to the small towns think
ing that they are fully prepared to
erect a perfectly suitable building for
their own particular institution. The
result is that the buildings are most
ly a conglomeration of ideas and their
lack of unity not only spoils them
architectural', but makes them use
less from a practical standpoint."

GONTEUTT OF NEGRO AND flLIPINO
Credited to the General, Who Denies
His Itecord a Bright One
In Three Wars.
Chicago, April 1G. General Frank
D. Baldwin, in command of the de
partment of the Colorado, who has
been accused of saying that in a fight
he is not worried about his negro
and Filipino troops "because it doesn't
make any difference whether they get
killed or not,1' was stationed in Chi
cago for years, lie Avas also declared
to have said that when it came, to
killing a good dog or a cur he would
always kill the cur the latter bein
interpreted as the negro or Filipino.
The most interesting part of the story
is that given iu a Denver dispatch,
in which the general is quoted as de
claring that he had in the first inter
view "praiset' both the negro and the
Win Two Congressional Medal.
General Baldwin was on General
Miles' staff in Chicago as inspector of
small arms practice in the then de
partment of the .Missouri. He is the
only man in the United States army
who twice lias won the coveted con
gressional medal of honor for conspicu
ous personal gallantry on the field of
battle. Unquestionably he was the
most popular officer who served in Chi
cago. His modesty was in keeping
with his record for bravery. He is
a Michigan man lorn and bred, and
his sympathy with the colored troops
and his admiration for their fighting
qualities found frequent utterance.
Ilia Iteuiark at Stone IUver.
General Baldwin has been pointed
to for years by army men and civil
ians as the mull type of the Ameri
can fighting soldier. He w ent into the
service as a boy in a Michigan regi
ment. At Stone river during the civil
war he held a lieutenant's commission,
and was ordered with a handful of
men into a stockade. The enemy ap
peared r,000 strong, under General Joe
Wheeler. Baldwin with his KM) men
was summoned to surrender, lie re
sponded to the demand the true sol

Stayed There Second Medal.
Then the stockade was assaulted in
force and the little garrison beat back
the tide of attack with desperate gal
lantry. Assault after assault aud Bald
win and his men held theirown, though
at a costly price. "There's a brave
little cuss behind those logs," said Joe
Wheeler, aud then he ordered up the
artillery. The big guns sent the logs
of the little stockade crashing in on
the defenders. The casualties were
fearful, but the Michigan boy kept up
the fight. Under the spur of his spirit
the wounded men kept at their work
with the rities.
It was over finally, but then the logs
of the stockade were not fit for match
sticks, and the list of the dead and
wounded was the muster of the com
pany, and Baldwin had won his first
medal of honor. He was u prisoner
for awhile and then, being exchanged.
fought through the rest of the war,
winning a commission in tne regular
army at its close.
During the 'Miles Indian campaign
In the late '70s in the northwest the
then Lieutenant Baldwin was an aid
on Miles' staff. -The Indians were on
a rocky hill with steep sides covered
with ice. It appeared to be impos
sible to carry the place by assault.
Baldwin asked permission to make the
attempt, "It's death," said Miles, "but
you may try." The aid placed him
self at the head of an assaulting party,
and went up the slipiery hillside in the
face of a fearful downward fire. The
men could not use their weapons.
They could simply cling tooth and nail
and toil upward with Baldwin lead
ing. The casualties were heavy, but
the line went on. The summit gained,
Baldwin led thei charge and drove the
reds hurtling. Congress gave Lieuten
ant Baldwin another medal of honor.

Joplin, O., April 1G. The lynching
was followed by an onslaught on the
negro section of the city by the mob.
House's were burned and negroesdriven
out of the city.
Joplin, Mo., April 10. An infuriated
mob took an unknown tramp negro
from the city jail and hanged him to
a telegraph pole at the corner of Sec
ond and Wail streets, two blocks from
the jail. The negro was charged with
having murdered Police Officer C. Les
lie, who was killed in the Kansas City
Southern raihoad yards while endeav
oring to arrest several negroes sus
pected of theft. Officer Leslie had or
dered several negroes who had taken
refuge in a box-car to surrender, and
when they failed to do so he fired sev
eral shots at the ear. Iuriug the
shooting a negro slipped from the car
and coming up behind the otficer shot
him through the head.
Uow the Negro Was Captured.
The negro then tied and within a
short time posses were after him.
About o p. m. Lee Fullerton, aged -1,
located the fugitive in a slaughter
house just east of Joplin. The ne
gro was arcuvL witu a rifle and defied
arrest. Fullerton slipped into the
structure unobserved and crept up be

the unsuspecting fugitive, and before
resistance coald be made he had the
negro on his back with a knife at his
throat The negro theu surrendered
his rifle, and pointing the weapon at

Slob Was Hungry for Blood.
With the assistance of another man
the negro was brought to Joplin and
placed in jail. News of the capture
spread rapidly and the jail was speedi
ly surrounded by hundreds of ieople.
There were ciies of "Lynch him" on
all sides and City Attorney P. II.
Decker mounted the jail steps and
made a strong plea in behalf of law
and order. This served to temporari
ly stay the mob, but did not appease
it, and a short time after Decker's
speech the mob started to batter in a
section of the jail wall. Within fifteen
minutes the mob had gaimnl entrance
to the jail ami secured the negro.
PLEADER IS LISTENED TO
But Ills Pleading: Is of Ho Avail and the
Prisoner la Hanged.
As he was dragged forth City Attor
ney Decker again Interfered and urged
that the negro be given a trial. For
half an hour he talked, and the mob
listened to him with the negro in its
custody. At one time it seemed that
the city attorney would win, as mem
bers of the mob began dispersing; but
suddenly a rush was made for the spot
where the negro was being held and he
was dragged two blocks from the jail,
a rope fastened around his neck, and
after the rope had been thrown over
the cross bar of a telephone pole a
score of men attempted to pull the
negro from the ground.
As many more seized the negro and
pulleil to prevent him leiug hanged.
For some moments it was a veritable
tug-of-war, but reinforcements on the
free end of the rope proved the strong
er and the negro, despite his protesta
tions of innocence, was finally swung
into the air aud strangled to death,
while shouts of satisfaction went up
from the mob.
The name of the negro was not
known, and he was a stranger in Jop
lin. As soon as the negro was dead
the mob dispersed iu the twilight, and
later the body was cut down and taken
la. charge, by. .tjie. .coroner... There is
still great excitement In Joplin. and
it is feared that more trouble will fol

negro are apprehended.
