ST. LOUIS, May 11.A special from Ozark Bays: The hanging of the Bald Knob bers wa3 begun at 9:53 o'clock. The ropes broke and the three men fell to Jhe ground, struggling. The execution -was a horribly bungled butchery. The men were carried to the ecaffold again at 10:10. "Bill" Walker strug gling, groaning and almost inswisible.

The Bald-Knobbers suffered death for the murder of Charles Green and William Edens March 11, 1877. They were to have been executed May 19, 1838, but on an appeal to the Supreme Court escaped the gallows temporarily. Last Oc tober the Supreme Court affirmed the de cision of the Christian County circuit court, and fixed December 28 as the day of exe- V^ cution. Through var- JO HN MATTHEWS. ous methwls, however, they have escaped punishment for their crimes until now. It will be remembered that December 88, 1888, confederates of the Bald-Knobbers broke Into the jail and gave the four condemned moi an opportunity to depart. John and Wiley Matthews took advantage of the chance, but "Dave" and "Bill*' Walker declined to leave and gave the alarm to the sheriff, who resided In the jail building. They alleged as a reason for not leaving that they preferred to await the action of the courts in their cases, the younger Walker stating that he would rather "hang than be hounded all over the country by officers of the law. It was gen erally thought at the time, however, that the Walkers fully anticipated leniency, and feared that injudicious action on their part would prejudice their chances for clemency. The weather was very inclement, and John Matthews soon gave himself up, saying that he preferred any thing to death from starvation and cold. Wiley Matthews has never since been heard from, though rumor has it that he has been seen in the Indian Territory. Taney County, Mo., is noted as the birth place of Bald-Knobbism. Early-day lawless ness caused the formation of a league for the protection of life and property in this wild country. The regulators first came into prom inence when the notorious Frank and Tubal Taylor entered the home of a Mr. Dickinson in Forsythe, Mo., and mur dered the inmates. They were captured by the new law-and-order league and lynched. Chris tian County, which ad jolns Taney, first adopted Bald Knobb ism in 1885-'86. Dave Walker was the first leader, and the mem bership soon reached between 300 and 400. Each newcomer to tho county was invited to join the order, and the majority did so. There was a fearful ordeal for the candidate, who, expecting to be inducted into some fraternal society com- DAVE WALKER. posed of neighbors, found himself in tho dark recesses of some lonely wood or ravine, sur rounded by hundreds of masked men, who im posed upon him a blood-curdling obligation, the infraction of which was punishable by death. Once iu he could never get out and re main in that section of the country. There were numerous visits by the band to petty offenders, but nothing occurred to at tract widespread attention until the Green Edens affair, which terminated in the downfall of Bald-Knobbism. The Green-Edens billing occurred in March, 1887. At a point eight miles southeast of Ozark, John Evans was whipped by the Bald-Knobbers for misbe having in church. 0 man Edens, a friend of Evans, interfered, and received four blows with the whip before Chief Walker could interfere. This so enraged Edens that he fearlessly condemned the Bald-Knobbers and on the night of March 10, 1887, the band met to consider J?rtoas' offenses. There were twenty-six present, and alter a brief deliber ation they proceeded to the Edens resi dence to punish the inmates. They were met with resistance, and fired several volleys, into the house, billing William Edens and Charles Green, his brother in-law, and quite seriously wounding old man Edens. In the meloe young Walker was shot in the leg. The out rage brought about a culmination of public indignation, and Zach Johnson, the tearless he i ff of Christian County, with a picked posse, started after the murderers, and within forty-eight hours had all save Bill Walker under ar rest. He, was captured three weeks later in Douglas County.where he had gone for safe BILL WALKEB. ty A the time there was no jail in Ozark, and the prisoners were taken to Springfield, Mo., for safe k#oping. A jail was promptly luilt however, and the Bald Knobbers transferred to Oz*t. The first hearing of tho Bald-Knobber cases was in August, 1887, but Chief Walker was not tried until-April, 1888. In March, 1887, three of the prisoners confessed, so the trial of Dave Walker was merely formal, he admitting the assault of the Bald-Knobbers on the Edens' home, but pleading he did not arrive until after the shooting had ceased. \3.'' *_A WILL NOT BE A Hiss NUN B^FULL INSTRUCTSONS ICING OF CONDS$!ftTS.
