yesterday, whn it was learned that
Cairo for some months had witnessed
a political foud in which charges of
graft by certain members of the po

That the double lynching is almost
directly traceable to this situation
was admitted by George Parsons,
mayor of Cairo.
General Wells to Rnxme,
It was while charges and counter
charges of this nature were being

'disgraceful scenes of last night and
this morning that Major General
Wells of Governor Deneen's staff en
gineered the coup by which Alexander
was taken from the city.

ALSO TAKES A
SHOT AT CANNON
New York, Nov. 13. Herman Rid
; der of the New York Staats-Zeitung,
having had his attention- called to the
statement attributed to Speaker Can
I non to the effect Rldder had promised
j Cannon the support of certain promi-
nent New York papers. Including his
own. In the national campaign provid
ed he would see that the duty on wood
pulp was removed, said today:
"The Btory Is absolutely false and
ridiculous. Cannon must be crazy to
make such an absurd statement. I
did not pledge him the support of even
my own paper and never talked to
jfaljp about' securing newspaper support
litany shapr manner."
Jail building and with the move word
was passed about on the streets that
Alexander was to be taken from Jail.
By the time the soldiers reached
the brick building hundreds of men,
women and children lined the streets
and sidewalks on both sides. Al
though there was no general disorder,
the crowd steadily pressed in on the
militiamen and finally resulted in an
order from Colonel R. J. Shand of
Springfield to clear the street.
Bayonets Root Crowds.
The soldiers, bayonets in hand,
drove the crowd back half a block or
so, and companies F and G, respond
ing to sharp orders, marched into the
Jailyard. There was a restless move
ment In the throng without the jail
and then a mighty yell went up as
Alexander, handcuffed, marched out
of the building between Deputy Sher
iffs Woodward and Thomas. The mi
litiamen quickly fell in, forming a
solid phalanx of armed men about
"Lynch him! Hang him to a tele
graph pole. Burn him," yelled the
apparently infuriated mob.
But the soldiers, headed by Gen
eral Wells, moved eastward in Twen
tieth' street and Washington avenue,
toward the Ohio levee, where a spec
ial train of three coaches was In
waiting. Although the mob follow
ed closely at the heels of the soldiers
continuing their shouts of derision,
Alexander seemed to remain cool.
Soldiers Guard Train.
Arriving at the railroad yards, a
human barricade of soldiers was
formed about the train and two com
panies of militia boarded the cars
with the colored man. The next
moment the train had rolled cut of
the Ohio levee and almost before the
crowds realized it had been circum
vented in any possible attempt at vio
lence, Alexander was safely on his
way to Kankakee.
Sheriff TeHs Story.
Cairo, Nov. 13. Sheriff Davis yes
terday told his story of the manner in
which James was taken from his cus
tody. After detailing his wanderings
in the woods of Union county after he
had left the train at Dongola, he told
of leaving James In charge of the dep
uty sheriff while he went to Karnak to
"The postmaster at Karnak, who is
alo the storekeeper there, jegggnizd
nTe',"sala Mr. Davis. ".Because of "this
we made a detour through the woods
about the town and walked east five
miles to Belknap. Prom there we
struck through the- wood until the wa
ter drove us to the railroad track. We
neared a' house to rest, but were warn
ed by a citizen of Belknap that a crowd
had left Cairo to intercept us. We took
to the country again, walking across
the corn fields for a couple of miles.
Postmaster In the Mob. ' ''
"The whistling of the train warned
us that the train had reached Bel
krlap. We lay down In some tall weeds
to conceal ourselves, but in a few min
utes a scouting party of three passed
us. A few minutes later another party
went by, one of whom I recognized as
the Karnak postmaster. He was car
rying a gun. The next party numbered
five and one of them mounted a stump
and espied us. He fired several shots
in the air and a crowd began to gath
er. One of the party was Mr. Logan
of Cairo, and I appealed to him to see
that no violence was committed.
"He assured me that all they asked
was that James be taken back to Cairo
and given a speedy trial. I promised
them that this was to be done, and
they then started us toward the train.
Did Not Hear Confession.
"At Belknap, while waiting for the
train south, I was asked to pick six
men to question James. This commit
tee received no answer from the pris
oner except "not guilty.' In the train
I seated myself beside the prisoner,
but as we entered Cairo someone threw
a rope around James' neck. I at once
took It off and was then struck several
blows by members of the party. Oth
ers caght the end of the rope and drag
ged James from the train, several mem
bers of the mob pushing me to one
side. I heard no confession from
James and nothing to indicate that he
had Implicated Alexander in the mur
der of Miss Pelley."

READ THI& FROM
Chicago, Nov. 13) That many hun-:

"operated" upon by their physicians lo

citis,, alleged to exist,-but which they
never had, - and - that mly 'slight per
forations of the skin formed ihe ex
tent of the feats of surgery is a charge
made against members of the medical
profession in Chicago by one of the
most "regular'' of its "regular"' mem
bers. That the strict rules of the code of
ethics in the profession, which, while
denouncing every form of anything
that approaches fraud or commercial
ism In the open, forces the struggling
practitioner to secret sins in order to
eke out the means of existence, is
given by this doctor s.s the main cause
of this and other practices which ne
described as "not only confounded
nuisances but actual frauds."
Is Not Done.
The man who makes these charges
against his brethren in the calling of
medicine is G. G. Burdick, M. D., 901
LChicago Savings Bank building, and
he is supported at least in part by
other Chicago physicians.
"I know of a physician," said Dr.
Burdick, "who boasted that he had to
his credit more than 800 successful
operations for appendicitis, performed
during a period of years. His state
ment remained unrefuted until one day
when he had a disagreement with his
hired nurse and she left him. This
woman declared that this doctor bad
never removed a single appendix.
"Why, things have progressed to the
stage where the doctor is almost
forced to adopt questionable means for
making money. A patient comes to
him, for instance, with some, slight
pain in the stomach, we'll say. The
doctor has not been allowed, by the re
strictions of professional ethics, to go
out and work up a profitable practice
for himself and is In need of money.
Here is his chance. He tells his pa
tient that the trouble is appendicitis
and that an operation is necessary.
Cuts Slit and Sews It Up.
"The man is taken to a hospital.
A slit is cut in the skin over the abdo
men and sewed up again. When the
patient comes out of hi3 sleep ha.
thinks his appendix has been removed.
He takes the medicine given him lo
correct tho little trouble which he
really did have, and when the wound
is healed goes home 'cured.' There
are hundreds of euch instances in thij
"The trouble lies in the whole eco
