For the past several weeks Chat tanooga, Tenn., has been In a fervor on account of the arrest, trial and sen tence of Ed. Johnson, charged with assault. He was sentenced to be hung this week, but a stay of pro ceeding was held to allow a review of the case by the Supreme Court. In the meantime a murderous mob gathered, stormed the jail and lynched the accused. His gu'lt was not clear ly proven. The woman who was as saulted did not say postlvely that he was her assailant; he might have been a white man with blacken face, of Johnson's built. At any rate, the guilt was fastened on the accused and lie suffered for it In an unlawful man ner protesting his Innocence to the last. And too this lynching took place In a large city surrounded by every protection. It showed that the officers winked at the mob. The Intervention of the Supreme Court placed the prisoner under federal con trol and for that reason the jailer will be held strictly accountable for the prisoner. The attitude of the fed eral government toward this class of lawlessness will be shown In this caRe and Us development and termin ation will be eagerly watched. LINCOLN INSTITUTE NOTES.
