Getting Up a Lynching Dee Two Cases
Very Much in 1'oiut.
Shelbyville, Ind., Aug. 1. City Mar
shal Bruce, with a warrant in his posses
sion charging one Babe Hawkins with
carrying concealed wapous, is searching
for him in the highways and byways
around about Shelbyville. If he succeeds
in finding Mr. Hawkins that individual
in all probability will be lynched.
Hawkins is a brother of the Charlie Haw
kins who, after dangerously shooting Mar
shal Bruce Aug. 22, 1891, was hanged by
a mob. Among other rxrsonal property
on the body of Charlie Hawkins which
then fell into the hands of the officers was
Couldn't Lose Such a Good Chance.
This pistol Babe Hawkins demands shall
be returned to him as the rightful heir of
his brother. Saturday he came to town
with three revolvers fastened to his belt
and, meeting Marshal Bruce in the street,
demanded the revolver. He was met with
a firm refusal, and townspeople interfer
ing was driven off. A warrant was issued
for his arrest. This warrant is the one
Marshal Bruce is now endeavoring to
serve. The former affair is fresh in the
minds of the people of Shelbyville, and
should Babe Hawkins be captured he will
probably be sent to join the man whose
revolver be so much covets.
