Kaleigh, N. C, March 22.?The
moat horrible criine in the biatory of
North Carolina was perpetrated early
thia morning at Garnera, live milea
eaat of this city, when a negro, Tom
Jones, commotily known in thecoun

murdered vietima and four othera,
all children, ranging in year8 from a
baby one month old to the largeat
boy, who waa not more than five
year8 of age.
The work waa done with an axe,
The murderer, according to thestory
of little seven-year-old Laura Jonea,
who escaped with heryounge8t 8i8ter.
The negro deliberately atruck the
mother four timea and then made
two heavy 8trokes iuto the body of
the eldest child.
The hou8e wascompletely deatroy

youugest children were 80 frail that

Emporia, Va., March 22.?The
robbery of Tue8day night at the res
idence of Mrs. E. A. Peeble's,in Em?
poria, reaulted in an awful tragedy
thia morning. Two men, one white
the other colored, had for a few days
taken shelter in a deaerted cabin
near Skippert. Aa the whole com
munily wasalive to find, if po88ib!e,
the bold robbers who were commit
ting the outrages Of the pa8t month,
a Juatice and a Conatable went to
see who were the inir?ate8 of the cab?
As the oflicers got to the door the
men iu the cabin at once fired on
them, and they returned the fire.
Both oflicers were killed instantly,
nnd the two men in the cabin were
The white man wascaptured and
has been lodged iu the jail here,but up
to thia writing au armed force are
atill in purauit of the negro, who ia
thought to be the deeperado, Cotton,
who lately eacaped from the jail iu
Port8mouth under aentence of death.
Walter Cotton waa arreeted about
0 o'clock Friday morning uear Stony
Creek and brought to Emporia.
The arrest was made by Mr. W. H.
Moore and a colored man. They
met eome train handa, who told
them that they had 8een Cotton a
ahort way down the track, aitting by
a fire. Mr. Moore and the negro
hadn't gone far before they met
Cotton, who 8poke, aaying, "Good
morning, gentlemet." Mr. Moore
immediately leveltd his guo upon
him, telling him to throw up his
handa. He made no reaiatance, and
Mr. Moore 8oon had him secured and
diaarmed him. He had three piatola
on his persou: alao two watche8,
identified. as the property of Mr.
Grizzard, and the store keys of Geo.
W. Black, who waa killed aome
Soon it becanie uoiaed about that
a body of five hundred men wonld
take him out of jail to-night and
lynch him. JudgeGoodwyu became
uneasy and began to ply Governor
Tyler with telegrams, and tbe Gov?
ernor, sent Company B of the Kich
mond Light Infantry Blues to Em?
poria to guard the jail. The mili
tary reached Emporia about 4 o'clock
and remained on duty until late at
night Then it was thought all
danger was past, so they were with
drawn and a special guard of twenty
five svorn in to do duty about the
prison throughout the night
BOTH MEN LYNCHED.
The citizens ot the county, becom
iug incensed at the presence of the
military, compelled Judge Goodwyn
to have them recalled. On Satur
day the company retnrned to Rich
As soon as they had disappeared a
tremendou8 mob of both whites and
blacks made for the jail. In the
cell Cotton and O'Grady sat, chained
to the floor. Neither raised their
eyes as the doors were opened, seem
ing to realize that the end waa near
and dreading to look irito the faces
of their executioners.
The crowd made a rTTsh for Cot?
ton, and with oaths he was told that
his end was at hand. He was asked
how he felt. His voice quivered as
he replied that he felt very badly.
"Are you prepared to die?" was then
"No, sir; I ain't," came the answer,
and then another asked if he had
anything to say; any confession to
"Oh, I doneit," he replied. "There
ain't no use in my denying that, and
1 know you are going to hang me."
There was no furtber parleying
after thia. The noose was quickly
adjusted about the negro's throat, he
oftering no reaiatance whatever, and
then he was told to stand. He could
not for his shackle*, and eome one
was seut toget the keys to thechain
locka and the negro was soon freed
from his shackles.
Just in froiit of the court-house
was an old sycamore tree. To thit
the negro, numb from the effect ol
his shacklee, was dragged, and it was
but the work of a moment to toss the
rope over the limb, when some oue
cried: "Everybody catch hold of
In a Sfcond Cotton was drawn up
to the limb of the tree, his forehead
being badly gashed by a protruding
Two or three times the man was
jerked up and down in an effort to
break his neck. Then the rope was
made fast to the truuk of tbe tree,
and two men caught hold of his feet
and swung to and fro by them, thus
adding increased weight to the strain
about the wretch's neck. Then two
shots were tired into hi9 bodv.
"BRING OUT THK WHITE MAN."
Now the cry was raised, "Bring
forth the white tramp." A start
was made for the jail. but conserva
tive people interceded and pleaded
that the raan'a life be spared, inas
much as there was no conclusive
evidence against him. This action
had the effeotof deterring the leaders,
and they agreed to grant the man a
temporary respite. The negroes,
however, howled for blood, asserting
that they had helped to lynch the
uegro, and they must be given the
body of the white man. Judge
Barham attempted to pacify the
negroes, but they refused to listen to
reason, and finally the Judge said:
"I don't tbink yon ought to hang
this man yet, but if you ntust have
him, Uke him." With that they
entered the jail, and unaided by
wbites, 8wung O'Grady to the tree.
Cottou admitted that he had
escaped from the rortsmouth jail,
where he was soon to have been
hanged, and also that he killed
Suunders and Weltou (the two
otlicers) and committed numerous
other crimes. His arrogaut and
detiant air destroyed sympathy. He
readily admitted baving robbed the
Grizzard residencc this week, aud
owned up to robbiug stores at Drew
rystilleaod Courtland. He deuiea
killing Bhok a few days ago, but
admits that he was of the party that
committed the deed.
THE LEQISLATURE MAY ACT.
A prominent member of the Leg
islature said that he believed it was
a case in which goodwould comeout
of evil. "I thiuk it probable that
if an extra session of the Legislature
is called this lynching will be the
8ubject of a searching investigation,
and will probably lead to the euact
ment of laws to meet such caeee.

WHY PUBL1SHERS CHAR5E.
For a Card of Tlianks, licaolu
tloiia of Iteapect, Obltuary
Poetry and the Likc.
A publiaher who repudiates the
idea that a newspaper is au eleemosy
nary institution, is O. H. Dibble, of
the St. Elmo (III.) Uanncr. He
recently announced that thereafter
he would charge for the kind of
notices catalogued iu theabove head
ing. Subsequent developmeuts are
narrated in the following?which,
by the way, ends with an admirably
euccinct"declaratiou of principle:"?
"Laat week's editorial haa brought
out tbe opiniona of two correapon
denta. One of them agrees with us,
? 'Tbe editor of tbe Danner struck tbe
key-note of true journaliam in bla au
nouncement to charge the usual rates of
advertising for the inaertion of 'carda of
thanka,' 'resolutiona of reapect,' 'obltuary
poetry,' etc. The tendency of moat
villagc papers towarda ao much free ser
vice ia one of the real causes of the
numeroua wrecka that strew the sea of
"Another valued contributor writee
"'I canuot aee whereyouexpecttogaiu
byannouncing that you will charge for
printing 'carda of thanka,' 'obituary
"On the other hand, we hardly
see where we cao expect to lose. As
we look at it, when we print a 'card of
thanka' for anyone, we save that
person the trouble of going or writ
ing to the persons whom he may
wish to thank. We do work for
him; why shouldn't we charge him
for the work we do? We never yet
saw anyone who objected to paying
for a card of thanka, and never ex?
"We did not say we would charge
for obituaries, but for 'obituary
poetry.' So far as obituuries are
concerued, we want whenever a
person dies, to mention thefact, and
also want to give age, with a short
sketch of his life, a mention of the
funeral, etc. This we want always
to do, and shall appreciate a news
item like the above from any of our
correspondents or friends.
"But as to very lengthy obituaries
and obituary poetry, that isdifferent.
Why? Because on'ly a few people
read them. The relatives and im
mediate friends do, of course, bnt
others do not; and we wish to print
matter that the public want to read,
and will pay to read. So we charge
for excesaively long obituaries and
'obituary poetry,' always.
"What we have just said applies
also to resolutiona of respect
"Printing a newspaper is a busi
ness enterpcise, pure and simple; and
the succeasful publisher ia the one
who fills his paper with what the
public desire to read, then gets a
good circulation, and thus gets ad?
vertising. That's the way the Ban
ner will try to do.
"TENNIE" HAS COME BACK.
Beaders of the Citizeh will recall
the writings in these columna in
times past from the pen of Lady
Cook (nee Tennessee ClaQin), which
were much admired contributiona to
ourcolumn8. Lady Cook haa returned
to America from England. With
$2,000,000 to inveat in New York
real eatate. Her firat purchase is
a four-story brownstone reaidence
on 121st atreet which ahe will make
her home. '
Tennessee Clafln is now Lady
Francis Cook. She also claima title
aa Counte88 Montaerrat Her name
was Tennie C. Clafin. She and her
aistei, Victoria Woodbull, who waa
married to John Biddulph Martin,
were the adventuroua Claflin aiaters,
who took Wall Street by the eara in
1869. Lady Cook haa been conduct
ing a8tock of brokerage busiDess in
London aiuce the firat of the year.
The firm name ia Lady Cook & Co.
Sir.Francis Cook'a title of Count of
Montaerrat is Portugueae. He owna
au estate of 13,000 acrea in Canti,
Portugal. Sir Francia Cook ia one
of the richest men in England. He
married Tenneasee in 1885,_
lt is to be hoped that Lady Cook
will not give up her literary work, of
which ahe did a great deal while in
England, aud that the Citizen will
be agaiu fayored with her commuui
McKINLEY AND HANNA.
The 8erious bluuder into which
Mr. McKinley has been forced in
reference to the Porto ltican bill has
been a matter of surprise as well as
of mortificatiou to many persons who
are untble to under8taud his suddeu
and radica' change of opinion.
General Lew Wallace, one of his
8upportersand closepersonal frienda,
comes forward with a statement that
will perhaps throw some light on the
subject. He explains the aituation
by aaying that when in his message
to Congres3, the Pre8ident recom
mended free tariff with Porto Rico,
it waa William McKinley who was
epeaking from his heart; but when
later on, he set diligently to work to
urge Congres8men to eat tbc-ir utter
ancea and vote for a duty on the in
dustries of the ialand, goiug and com
ing, then he was carrying out the
views of Mark Hanna, the great Ohio
suspect, aud thus it appeara that Mr.
McKinley ia so thoroughly under the
control of the man whoae fiat placed
him in the Presidential chair, that in
8pite of hia own convictions, and in
theface of his plain and patriotic ut
terances, the country mourna the fact
that the Chief Kxecutive officer
ahould 8o far forget hia duty, and ao
atultify himself, aa to bring down
upon hia head the anathemaa of all
fair-minded and right-thiuking peo

Next to light, air, food aud rai
ment, the newspaper ia one of the ne
cesaities of life. Whoof us would
be without our morning or evening
paper ? The daily paper is secular,
of course, but it tells us swiftly and
surely what is going on eveu in the
remotest parts of the earth, and the
knowledge which we thus gain pre
parea ua for the work which we are
called upon to perform.
What channel of iuformation ca?i
compate with the newspaper of to
day ? Be8ide that, all the opinions
and conviucing argumenta of the va
rious newspapersare with the church,
and there haa never been a time wheu
the new8papers have refused to give
all poasible space to the cause of
Chriat without money and without
pnce. The church owes a debt to
the newapapers, and the debt ia in
creaaing every day. I doubt whether
we will ever be able to pay it
