Shoot Them Down.
Uike City. Pia., May 21.?Masquerad
i ? as olllcors of tho law, a dozen men
appeared before tho county jail at
o'clock this morning and presented u
bogus telegram to the credulous 16
your-old son of the sheriff, orderhif
the releasn of Mark Morris, Jr., Jerry
i luslo ami four other negroes, whol
bad been held for safekeeping on the)

ii n named Register, on May 12.
The men. Who had COtUO from Tal
iiflssee to Lake City in automobilen, I
. led the negroes about a mile out
i ? of Lake City and COUpolled the
t) - roes to stand in a line. About
ten men commenced tiring with Win
; ?tera and pistols until every one of
i1' sis bad been riddled with bul
lets. The liritiK lasted about a ball'
hour, and a few straggling citizens at
daybreak found the negroes butcher
ed beyond recognition, just after the
automobiles left the scene of the lynch
Came From Capital.
Tlie men who planned the killing of
the six came overland from Tallahas
see, a distance of 106 miles and cov
ered most of the distance at night.
It Is possible that the occupants of
the two automobiles were never seen
from tho time they left Tallahassee
until they returned. The plans of the
men were the most daring, and hut
for a curious combination of circum
stances would have never been accom
plished. The sheriff of Columbia
county was out of tho city and left
the jail in charge of the boy. who.
aroused in the early hours of the
morning, allowed the six negroes to
he taken from the jnil without know
ing the sinister purpose of the mob.
The telegram which the leader of
the mob showed the boy was sup
posodly from tho sheriff of Leon
county and stated that the sheriff had
received intimations that a mob was
hclng formed in Tallahassee to take
the negroes from the Lake City jail.
The message ordered that the men be
carried further south to frustrate the
suspected mob. The telegram appear
ed authentic as the six negt'OOS have
been moved frequently,
Vetaal Details I nknoun.
The actual details of the summary
execution oi Iho negroes are proble
matical, for residents of Lake City
knew nothing of the lynching util a
fusllade ol distant shots were heard.
A few citizens went in tho direction
of the noise and found the negroes,
imt nil traces of tin* mob were gone
By some it is believed that the negroes
were to b? hung hut resisted and were
instantly killed. Some indications of
a struggle lead to this belief.
There was strong feeding in I.eon
county against the negroes, as tho
men shot were prominent.
It was proved at the trial that the
negroes had established an arsenal
and were prepared for trouble. The
negroes were first taken to Talla
hassee and then to Live Oak for safo
kcoptng, and brought hack to Lake
City six days ago.
