Colored Population Forced to
Leave Peircc City , Mo.
< CNE CREMATED IN HIS tlOME.
All Blacks Having Been Lynched or
Driven Away , Furious Crowd Runs
Out of Material and Quiet Returns. '
Wrong Man Is Lynched.
Pclrce City , Mo. , Aug. 21. For nenr-
ly 1C hours tills town of 3,000 people
lias boon in Iho hands of n mob of
armed whiles , determined lo drive
every negro from the city. In nddl-j
tlon to the lynching Monday night of
"Will Godloy , accused of the wanton
murder of Miss Gazelle Wild , and the
shooting to death of his grandfather ,
French Godlcy , the mob yesierday ere- ,
maled Polo Hamplon. an aged negro , '
in his home , sol the torch to the houses
of five blacks , and with the aid of state
militia rifles stolen from the local com- ,
pany's arsenal drove dozens of negroes -
groos from town. After noon the excitement -
citomont died down , the mob gradually - ,
ly dispersing , more from lack of no-
Eroea upon which to wreak their hatred - '
tred than for any other cause. Many *
of the negroes who fled from the city *
are hiding In Iho surrounding woods ,
while olhers nave gone , grealer dis
tance In seeking safely.
Every negro has loft the town except
a few railway porters known to be ro-
epeclable , but who must also leave.
The citizens of Pelrce City say that
ns negroes have committed several
Biich crimes In the las * ten years none
shall live there in the future , the same
feeling already existing at Monnetl ,
four miles east of Pelrco City , and
the end of the 'Frisco passenger dis
trict. It may bo necessary for the
road to change all porters In Spring
Not the Real Culprit.
It is now believed thai Ihe man
lynched was nol Ihe real culprit. A
negro named Starks , under arrest at
Tulsa , I. T. , across the border from
here , tallies exactly with the descrip
tion of the murderer. He la held there
awaiting identification. Unless Ihe
man is brought back here , U Is be
lieved there will be no further trouble.
If returned here he will surely be
lynched. Another suspect , Joe Lark ,
is under arrest In Springfield , Mo.
Eugene Barretl , also known aa Car
ter , In a confession whllo a rope was
around his neck yeslerday , accused
Joe Lark , n 'Frisco railroad porler , of
being Implicated In the crime , and
Lark was arrested at Springfield.
Lark gave a detailed statemenl as lo
his whereabouts Sunday and he Is not
believed to be guilty. It Is not likely
that either suspect will be taken to
Pelrce City while the excitement runs
high. Some here think that Barretl
told any slory in order lo save his life.
The funeral of Miss Wild look place
'yeslerday and was wllnessed by sev
eral thousand people.
Pelrce City Is near the junction of
four railroads nnd trains from all di
rections brought in large numbers of
armed men today , bent on bloodshed
if necessary. When the mob went to
the section of the city occupied by
the negroes some one In the cabins
opened fire , but no one was hit. The
mob then destroyed Iho cabins. Reck
less firing broke several plate glass
windows nnd n train was fired Into.
None of the passengers was hurt.
Negroes Driven Out.
The rifles taken from Ihe Pelrce
Clly mllllary company , 11 is expecled ,
will all be relumed. Members of Ihe
company Ihemselves were out hunting
for the escaping negroes with rifles
nnd this suggested the Idea of taking
all the guns. The local hardware stores
'sold out their arms early , but several
applications from negroes were re
fused. The mob was composed of
1,000 or more and no masks were used
nnd 30 negro families were driven from
New elements In Iho murder on Sun
day aflernoon of Miss Wild developed.
It appears she started home from
church alone , her brolher lingering
behind. About one mile from town
the brother found her with her throat
cut , lying lifeless near a culvert under
which her assailant had atlempted to
drag her. Evidence of a terrible strug
gle was shown. A copper colored ne
gro was seen sltllng on Ihe bridge a
Bhort time before the tragedy occurrod.
It Is supposed that the negro sprang
upon her when she was passing and at
tempted to force her beneath the
bridge. She fought with such despera
tion that he could not accomplish his
purpose and cut her throat In the
struggle. Her body was nol violaled.
Bloodhounds were laken lo Ihe scene
nnd the girl's bloody handkerchief was
laid before them. They caught the
trail and ran to the home of Joe Lark ,
where , on being admitted , they rushed
Into his bedroom and sprang upon the
bed. It is believed that the man under
arrest at Tulsa , who boarded with
Lark , the Springfield suspect , slept
upon this bed.

Paducah , Ky. , Aug. 21. The horror
of the City of Golconda disaster at
Cottonwood bar , four miles above Paducah -
ducah Monday night , Is just beginning
to be fully comprehended by the people
ple of Pndncah as body after body Is
brought into the city and taken to the
undertakers. The boat's register has
not yet been recovered , but It Is cer
tain the death list will number 10 , and
perhaps 22. An olllclal Investigation
will be made , as It seems certain that
the most culpable carelessness caused
Frank Enders , one of the passen
gers , corroborated by several others ,
declares that the effort to land
brought the side of the boat nround
so that the wind struck It with full
force. There had boon almost n gale
blowing for ten minutes , and one man
who could not swim went to the pilot
house and begged the pilot to lam ! .
When he did finally consent to land ,
the hurricane , visible as a huge black
streak sweeping across the river ,
struck the boat as It swung nround In
a position least able to resist.
The bodies of Miss Trlxle Grimes ,
Miss Lucy Darnett , Mrs. David Adams ,
Miss Graham and Mrs. W. A. Hogan
and Lucille , her 6-year-old daughter ,
have been recovered.
The position of the limbs and the
expression on the faces , ns well as
scratches and bruises , Indicate a fierce
struggle when the prisoners were
caught In the little cabin like rats.
The boat is being dismantled , In order
thnt the dead may be reached.

mers , a workman.
In the second explosion 15 persona
were Injured seriously enough to ho
tnkon to hospitals , nnd about 40 others
wore troatoil on the scone by the ambulance -
Hriolly , the story of the fire may bo
thus summarized : The roll of Injured
mounts up to more than 100. The
fire la still raging and Is eating up
oil at the rate of $100.000 a day. Fire
men and officials are powerless. The
fire must literally burn Itself out.
The cooperage shop has been swept
away and In Its destruction 40 men
narrowly escaped death. The tanks
of benzine are going. Earthworks
have boon thrown up to keep the
Schuylklll river from becoming Hooded
with blazing oil. The firemen say they
are working in the dark , they do not
know where the danger spots nro.
The olllclals of the company refuse
to give any estimate of the loss. These '
In a position to know estimate it from
$500,000 to $1,000.000. Aa the Standard - '
ard Oil company , which controls the
Atlantic Refining company , does Its
own inaurlng , the loss will fall on the
Insurance fund of that concern.
