A THINKBR IN CHICAGO.
S. What he has to Say About Lynching
from Anoter PolWt of View.
Chicago, Ill., June 28.-"I am no
advocate of lynching or of mob law,
- but I would rather see a community
0 wrought up to the highest pitch
J over -crimes that would seem impos.
f sible this side of hell than to remain
7 apathetic," was k4o 4eogAir#tion of
- the Rev. W. A. Barlett at the First
s Congregational Church today, in a
y prelude on "Lynching from Another
Point of View." Dr Barlett said
i among other things:
"I have seen so many sermons, ed
I itorials and resolutions denouncing
lynching and mob law, that one
would get the impression that the
citizens who hang or burn the de
stroyer of life, home and all that is
held sacred by womanhood are the
real offenders, rather than the mon
ster whom they destroy.
"We seem to be so absorbed with
the majesty of this vague term 'law'
that the notion appears to prevail
that the real criminals are those who
do not wait for legal processes, and
the violator of womanhood is the
abused party.
"We shudder at the torture of the
criminal who is burned, but appa
rently forget to shudder for the
innocent girl whose mental and
spiritual agony is ten-fold greater
than that of the fire. This is not a
race problem, except so far as one
race are the offenders. The white
man who commits the same crime is
just as guilty.
"The indignant upritng of a com
munity, and some of the best men
in it, to avenge a wrong of such aw
ful magnitude may be technically
lawless, but the spirit which causes
the uprising is the reflection of a
higher civilization. There are crimes
so dreadful that the pure and the
chivalrous and the strong find it well
nigh impossible to endure the
thought that such a degenerate
should pollute the earth by his pres.
ence. It is easy to theorize about
the anarchy of mob law, but the
same hand which penned the calm
editorial might be the first to grasp
the torch if it was a mother, wife or
daughter who was the victim.
"I say that when you look at a
lynching from another viewpoint it
is simply the bursting forth of an in
dignation and loathing that will not
be checked. In the Old Testament
days they made short work of such
an offender.
"Lynching is certainly a had
method and forms the habit of dis
order, and makes men bloodthirsty.
But if it is to be avoided there cer
tainly is called for a more sure and
speedy trial of these wretches who
often brazenly deny crime amid red
tape and legal processes, but confess
ab)jectly wvhen confronted with de
termined men. It is useless to bring
to trial good men who rise up to pro
tect their firesides. The community
will not bear it. If men object to
being burned let them cease from
crimes which make a nation sick."

THREE LYNCHED FOR MURDER.
Fate of Three Negro Desperadoes in New
ton Ga., Who Murdered a Farmer
of Baker County.
Macon, Ga. June 28.-An Albany,
Go, dispatch to the Telegraph of
June 26 says:
Baker County was the scene of a
triple lynching about 2 o'clock thif
morning, when a mob of fifty deter
mined men entered the town of New
ton, and took possession of Garfield
McCoy, Wiley Anette and George
McKinney, Miller County negroes,
who had been arrested and lodged in
jail for the murder last Saturday
night of F. S. Bullard, a prominent
white farmer of the seventh district
of Baker.
Jailer Williams Screws, who resides
near the jail, was awakened about 12
o'clock by Bailiff R. U. Tucker, who
stated that he had a prisoner to platce
in the lockup. The jailer hastily
donned his clothes aud proceeded to
the jail. As soon as he had unlocked
the prison door he was suddenly sur
rounded by a swarm of men with
drawn revolvers, who demanded that.
he unlock the cell in which the Miller
County negroes were lodged. lie
did as commanded under protest and
the three negroes were dragged froni
the jail, Tucker's prisoner making
his escape during the excitement.
Their appeals for mercy were lost on
the mo11, who began beating and
slashing them with knives as soon as
they left the door of the jail.
The mob lost no tine in leaving
Newton with the negroes, and whe
about a mile west of the town the
three men were halted, nooses tied
about their necks and, anid the
shouts of t.he mob, the men were
strnng up. The crowd fired several
hundred shots into the swaying
bodies, after which they quietly dis
persed.
The crime for which the negroas
were lynched occurred on the planta
tion of Bullard last Saturday night
during the progress of a dance given
by one of Bullard's tenants.
Negroes from Early, Miller and
Decatur counties were present and
trouble was soon started by McKin.
ney, Anette and McCoy putting out
the lights. Just at this juncture
Bullard appeared on the scene and
commanded order. His interference
was resented by the three negroes,
who operid fire upon him with re
volvers. Bullard fell mortally wound
ed and died on Tuesday.
The negroes were arrested on Mon
day and lodged in jail at Newvton.
At their commitment trial it was
proven that the shot that killed Bul
lard was fired by McKinney, and
that Anette and McCoy also fired at
him. The negroes were remandled
to jail to await trial at the next ses
sion of Baker Superior Court and
absolutely no talk of lynching was
indulged in by citizens. It is the
consensus of opinion that the work
of the mob was largely due to the
fact that Bullard's family is left in a
sad condition, his wife being a hope.
loss invalid and several small chil.
dren are dependent. Th'e lynching
was a great surprise to the people of
nounty, as it was generally believed
bhat the law would be0 allowVed to
takce its course int their cases. The
lynching is generally3 deplored.

The Performance of a Runaway Horse in
Anderson-Milliners and Milli
nery Scattered.
The State.
Anderson, June 25.-A runaway
horse created intense excitement in
C. F. Jones' Co.'s store yesterday af
ternoon. Considerable damage was
done in the store and it is a wonder
that several people were not injured
or killed. The animal became fright
ened from some cause, broke loose
from its fastenings in the rear of the
store of H. G. Johnson & Son, dashed
through this store and then across
the street. It ran up a flight of
steps and through a partly open door
into the rear room of Jones' store,
which was occupied by the drtiss
making department.
Four young ladies were seated
aromd a table in the room. They
heard the animal coming and man
aged to got out of the way. The
horse continued its wild race on on
tering the room and on its career
overturned and smashed a tewing
machine, a plate glass show case and
a table, then dashed through the mil.
linery department and on towards
the front of the store. It ran behind
the counter in the dry goods depart.
ent and bad proceeded imore than
two thirds the distance of the entire
store, when it, ran against an open
drawer. The horse was going at a
terrific p as is shown by the fact
that the force of the collision with
the dratwer I hrow t he animal a comi
plete somersault, landing it, on its
back behind the counter with its feet
pawing inl the air.
Th11e hlorMi was gottonl out from ho
hind the counter and showed no sign
of having been injured. Ii had ap
parently recovered from its fright
when led out of the bulding. Fully
100 worth of damage was done in
the interior of the store.
