RULED WITH HICKORY.
AN OEG AN (Z Vi ION OK KEGUtiA TOKS IN INDIANA. A Drunkard Whipped th Switches L'olll He Fainted —Mr. i ratter Re formed by 73 Gaelics—Women Cruelly Punished, hr m the Xeie lo i.* vm. Chicago, Jan. 29, —From time to time revolts have reached C hi ajro of the law less proceedings of a band of masked men, who, it was said, were raiding Crawford, Harrison and Oraiigecounties, in the southern part of Indiana, dragging citizens from their beds, and, under oover of the night, tying them to trees and Hog ging them within an inch of their lives. So many outrages of this kind have oc curred recently that a reporter was de tailed to visit the lawless region and get at the inside facts. The last midnight whipping ocourred at Slarengo, a village of less than 500 in habitants, tbat spreads over a good deal of territory in the northwest corner of Crawford county. Among the most per sistent saloon patrons in Marengo is Joe Williams, a big, powerful fellow. Wil liams was tbe last person whom the regu lators visited. He was formerly a farmer in the southern part of the county, but sold his farm a year ago, and has since devoted his entire time to getting drunk and squandering his money. Recently he brought his family to Marengo and put them in a small shanty of two rooms. Nearly every day he got drunk, and his wife and three children might have Btarved bad she not managed to secrete a small amount of money before he could run through with the entire proceeds of the farm. Several times lie received anonymous letters warning him to go to work and provide lor his lannly, but he laughed at them. One day last week he found the money that his" wife had hid away, and went to a neighboring village, where he spent it in a drunken carousal. When the last cent was squandered he re turned home, begged forgiveness and promised bis wife that he would never touch another drop. That night, when all were fast asleep ten masked men went quietly up to the Bhanty and burst in the front door with a scantling. Wllliamsjumpedfrom his bed and planted his fists squarely in the face of tbe first man who entered. An instant later be was overpowered and was dragged out ot doors, across tbe railroad track and up the hill, his persecutors pounding him with sticks and stones at every step. The night was very cold, and the cutting north wind that whistled across the bottoms made his sufferings more intense, lor he had nothing on but his underclothing, and this was torn from bis bedy as he was dragged over the ice ami snow. Back of the depot a big wainut tree grows on a steep hill. It has become famous in the village as the regulation whipping post. To this tree the strug gling man was quickly dragged. Four powerful men twisted his arms around the trunk and held him fast. This is called hugging the tree. When these preparations were completed a big man, who was addressed by the leader as “No. 1,” stepped out from tbe circle with a bunch of hickory switches in his hand. Each of these switches was about four feet in length, about the size of a man’s finger at the little end, and about two inches in diameter at the butt. “No. I’’selected a switch, raised it in the air. and then brought it down with ail bis might upon the back of the victim. Williams shrieked in vain for mercy, and his piercing cries resounded throughout the neighborhood. Many persons stood at their windows and witnessed the tor tures to which the agonized wretch was subjected, but no one dan and to interfere. Blow after blow was rained down upon Ins naked body, each cutting deep into the flesh and drawing streams of blood. when “No. 1” became exhausted, “No. 2” took his place, and so on until the vic tim swooned. Then lie was released and left senseless on ihe hillside, the floggers moving awav and disappearing in the darkness. Williams’ wife witnessed the whipping, and as soon as she thought it safe went to her husband, restored him to consciousness, and helped him back borne. He has not been out of tbe house since. A few nights before Williams was whipped the regulators cave William H. Trotter an unmerciful flogging at the same tree. Trotter once owned a farm in tbe county, lint sold It two years asio, and moved to Marengo with ills wife and throe children. He is a carpenter by trade, and built himself a house, which he sold before it, was completed, and in vested the money in a drug store, which is there another name lor a rum shop. For a while he prospered, but soon got to drinking heavily, and finally became a confirmed opium eater. .Mrs. Trotter has done washing for her neighbors, and some of the more charitable ones have sent in provisions for berselt and the children. Two weeks ago Trotter got a chance to sell the house, and tried to force his wife to consent. She refused, and after abus ing her cruelly he picked up his clothing and went to the depot, intending to take the night train for St. Louis. Kedid not get a chance. A few minutes belore the train was due a body of masked men entered the depot, seized Trotter and dragged him toatree. wneu they gavehim seventy.five lashes. Ilis punishment was notso severe, as his clothing was not re moved, but it was sufficient to cause him to turn back home. He is now at work, aud his wife says that he has not onlv stopped drinking, but that he has sud denly become greatly attached to his fam ily, treating them with marked kindness and affection. She has great, hopes for tbe future. The next day the reporter visited Leavenworth, the county seat, Tasewell, Mliltown and Kiceville, all small villages in the vicinity of Marengo. Each one of them has been frequently visited by the whip-ups, aid many of their citizens are wearing the marks received while hugging a tree. The regulators, who call themselves White Caps, came into existence about twelve years ago. No one appears to kuow who they are. and few have sui ficient courage to find out. Curious per sons have been severely punished for try ing to penetrate the mysteries of tbi secret organization. Rome years ago the Governor offered a reward of SI,OOO for the arrest and convict on of the White Caps. Stimulated by the offer, detectives went prying about tbe country, but arter several of them had been made to hug a tree they cave up the search. So far as known only one member ol the organiza tion was ever identified, and that was not until after he was killed. That was in Harrison coinitr, about six years ago. About lour rears ago Mrs. Ann Wible, Ihe wife of a limner, was terribly flogged. Sue was con 11 aed to her bed lor several weeks ufier receiving the punishment, and as soon as sue was able to get out she brought suits lor damages against sev eral ot her neighbors, but. was unable to prove that they were among the White Caps. i he most recent punishment of a worn so at tne hands of the regulators occurr ed a lew miles troni English about four months ago. She was suspected of gross immorality, and was dragged from her house st midnight. Her companion, named Host wick, was takon to a tree and flogged. She vv as not whipped, but was roughly handled.

Technicalities Set Him Free After Serving a. Third of His Sentence. Tren ton, N. J., Feb. I.—ln the habeas corpus proceedings brought by the coun sel for Oscar F. Baldwin, Justice Brad ley, of the United States Supreme Court, filed au opinion ia the United States Cir cuit Court yetterday and an order to-day discharging ißUdwin from State prison. Baldwiu, live years ago, was sentenced by Judgpsjiijcen to five years each on three counts of an indictment for misap. propriatiug $250,000 of the funds of tho Mechaniot# National Bank of Newark, N. '■/),• a'.Ul endeavoring to con ceal! ’ the datamation by false entejea and- false statements. .Judge Nixon’s sentence was that said terms were not to run concurrently. Justice Bradley, in granting the vvrit of habeas corpus" holds that Judge Nixon’s sen tence of (mean years is illegal; first, be cause Baldwin was sentenced to hard labor, whereas the law under which he was indicted Imposed a penalty of im prisonment only; second, because no more than one sentence of five years could be imposed under the law, inas much as said offenses were each an aot forming part of the one aot of mis application of the money; third, because the sentence does not specify upon which indictment either of the terms is to be undergone; fourth, because the sen tence is void lor the uncertainty that in law terms did run concurrently, and fifth, because having served five years and paid the costs lie has served the sentence fully. Baldwin was discharged this morning under a decision that no further imprison ment can occur. CHATTANOOGA WATF.It SUPPLY A Mountain Spring Furnishing the City More Thau is Needed. Chattanooga, Feb. I,—For more than a year a company has been tunnelling into the side ot Lookout mountain, about two miles from the heart of this city, and some 600 feet above the average level of the lower grounds on which tho city Is built. At tbat height they tapped an un derground creek that furnishes a living, never-varying stream of clear, cold water about ten inches in diameter. This water was piped to town, and preparations made to furnish the water to the citizens along the principal streets. A few weeks ago a Pennsylvania com pany bought out the old water company, whose plant was built by the government when the army occupied Chattanooga, and the new mountain company. The old company has a large reservoir, with a capacity of 6,000,000 gallons on the bench of Cameron hill, which is eunplied.bv pumping irom tho river. To-day the main from the mountaiu side was con nected with the main trom the reservoir and the clear mountain spring water forced its way by gravity pressure into the reservoir until pumps had to be stopped to prevent an oveiflow. The water in tho reservoir which bad been very muddy on account of the heavy rise in the river began clearing, and is now as dear as crystal, and tbe city is being supplied from the underground mountain stream. A hose was attached to a plug located on a direct ten-inch main from the mountain side and the pressure was so strong that it required twelve stout firemau’to hold the nozzle. A stream can De thrown from the plug on this main by gravity pressure 200 feet high iu the lower levels of the city. Cook Fighting Must Stop. Cincinnati, 0., Feb. I.—An unusual scene was presented in the Police Court this morning when 110 men were ar raigned for aiding and abetting a cock fight.

Judge Fitzgerald announced nisdetermination to punisn to the full extent of the law those who ohoose to exercise their legal rights to trial and who may be convicted. The cocking main was held in a regularly constructed pit in a fourth story room ol a building nearly opposite the court bouse ou Main street. Chattanooga’s New Railroad. Chattanooga, Tenn., Feb.

SAVANNAH MORNING- NEWS: THURSDAY, FEBRUARY H, 1887. .41, \PAHA'S IU DGf.T. j Evils of Intemperance—Furlong’s Ghost Scares (ho superstitious. Alapaha, Ga.. Feb. L—A petition looking to the re-establishing ol the sale of whisky in this county was industrious* ly circulated ou the streets of this village a few days ago. But few, if any, siguovs were obtained. Tho people of Berrien uon’t want the liquor evil among them again. They have been vastly beuetited by its removal. The Alapaha Star, with reference to the petition, says: “With whisky sold iu Alapaha, the drinking ele ment in those counties as well as in our own would frequently meet here, and the cursing, lighting, yelling, shouting and hurrahing that once disgraced our little town would be re-enacted and im proved on. Saturdays would again be days of strife and bloodshed, and per haps murder would slain our streets and darken our annals. The crack ol the pis tol and the tvuoop of the drunken bully would once more strike terror to the hearts of our women and children, aud worse, far worse than all else, our boys would again be subject to the temptatiou ot strong drink—a curse which would un fit them for usefulness to themselves or to their country and hurl some of them into premature graves. It is a short-sighted and cruelly selfish policy that would choose drunkenness rather than sobriety, vice rather than morality, turmoil and strile rather than peace and tranquility, squallor aud misery rather than home and happiness—that would make of our young men (the hope of this country) howling, blood-thirsty drunk ards, rather than sober, industrious, law abiding citizens—and tliese results would lollow tbe reintroduction of whisky here. hen furlong's ghost. A few months ago this section of coun try was startled and shocked by the mur der ot a poor negro by Ben W. Furlong, five miles west ot thisplace. The finding of the body of the negro, tho suioide ol Furlong,and tbe flight of his accomplices, Loiton and Sharon, made a remarkable story. The strangest part of the story is this: Workmen and laborers, persons living around and employed at the mill where the tragedy ocourred, assert posi tively tbat Furlong’s spirit or ghost stalks forth nearly every night, prowls around the mill building and seems sometimes to be examining tbe machinery. Quite a number of negroes claim to nave met the ghost on the railroad track and around the mill at odd times. The demand for houses is unprece dented in this Dlaoe. There will be several new buildings ereoted during tbe summer, one a large, flue store house. A circular descriptive of the soil, climate, productions, prices of lands, etc., in 'this section will be puDlisbed soon and distributed calling the attention ol capitalists to the advantages to be found here. Rarties interested in manufacturing varnish are making inquiries with a view ol establishing a branch of their business here. Rev. Mr. Foster, tho recent appointee of the conference of the Methodist Epis copal Church, is winning golden opinions among the people here. A NORTH CAROLINA STORY. Henry Mortimer Saitl to Have the Mark of Cain. From the Murphy Bulletin. In 1844 a man by the name ot Morti mer moved to this county from Virginia. He was a wealthy mac, owning a quan tity or slaves, and said to be a good man. We wlsn we could say as much for the mother. When the war broke out all of bis property was swept away—everything he possessed, and he died just before the surrender, leaving his wife and two little sons. The boys were about 8 and 10 years of age wuen their father died, aud vvitu proper care and training they would have undoubtedly made good and useful citizens, but with such a mother, we will ask, wuat better could have been ex pected of them ? She taught them to hato everybody, and that everybody was their enemy. She made them go armed, aud when one of them was fined for carrying concealed weapons, she paid the fine im posed, bought him a pair of pistols ami told him to wear them buckled around his waist, and use them when he thought proper. Henry and Edward grew up to be young men. Heury bad loaned his brother Ed ward SOO or more, and often he had asked his brother for it, but was always put off with some trifling excuse. He went over to see his brother about it—they were living on tbe same farm, but not in the same house—and ho was heard to remark belore be left toe house “that he would have his money or blood,” and he got blood. They met in front of their mother’s house, and were standing within 10 feet ol each other. Their mother, seeing them standing their quarreling, walked out ol tbe house and stood between them. Tbe conversation that took place between them was never known. Suddenly there rang out on the cool, quiet air the report of a pistol, and Edward Mortimer leil dead at his brother’s leet, the ball having penetrated liis forehead, killing him in stantly, and in his hand was an open knife. The mother was standing be tween them, and had her right hand up to her head, pui ting under her cap a stray lock of hair. When the pistol was tired the hall took oil’ the forefinger of her right hand, barely missing uer temple. Both were married men and had iamilies. Henry Mortimer was arrested, tried and acquitted, his mother being the only witness in the cure. And now comes the strangest part of this story—strangor than fiction. Henry Mortimer is a veritable modern Cain. He has not a hair ou him from the crowu ol his head to the soles of his reet. Wo have seeu and talked with him, and knowi whereof we speak. He is about six and a half leet high; very stout; converses splendidly, although snuiewnat reticent in his manner at first appearance. Shortly atter he was acquitted, and Just after In retired, which was between 9 and 10 o’clock, be was visited by his dead brother. lie could see and hear him, hut he himself could not move or speak. In lay as ii dead in a passive siate. lie had beautiful auburn hair and beard, which was his prnle. His brother visited him ibe second time, and reached oui Ins skeleton arm and bony lin.ors and com menced plucking bis hair, one hv one irom his bead, then his eyebrows, eyelashes, beard, and so on, until lie bad plucked every hair off his entire body. It was not done in one night, but was kept up Irom night to night for about three months. Ho was a w anderer on the earth, and travels at night, lie is the greatest cu r.oslty we have ever seen. Ho lias the supposed maik of Cain. T In* CMlio*l ot 1 a I'tilar Heat-.
