Cumberland, Md., Oct. o.— The first lynching In the history of Cumberland, which took place at an early hour thie morning-, hap been the topic of penera] discussion, thouprh scarcely of • ■■!.- A* -"".nation, to-day. The shooting of Policeman AußU^t Raker on Thursday nlpht by William Burns, a negro des perado* while the latter was resisting arrest, created much excitement, owing to the excellent reputation of the officer and his well known kindly disposition. His death on Haturday morning uas followed by threats against th-j regro. these coming as much from those of hi.s own race as from the whites. Few, however, seem to have thought a lynching possible, and the police paid no attention to the rumors that were afloat. Only Deputy Sheriff Adam Hendley was at the jail when, after midnight, a crowd of less than one hundred men. a few of whom were disguised Jn one way or another, appeared and demanded the keys. These being refused, a telegraph pole was used as a battering ram and entrance to the building was forced. Other negroes in neighboring cells were careful to guide the lynchers to that of Burns, and there again the battering ram was used. The lynchers found their victim crouched behind his cot and. seizing him by the feet, dragged him up and down stairs Jnto the street, where, within a. few yards of the entrance to the Jail, Burns was kicked and shot to death. The Rev. W*. Cleveland Hick*, an Episcopal <Jergyman, did his best to save the negro, and afterward protected the body until the arrival on the scene of Judge A. Hunter Boyd and the Police. Judge Boyd called on the crowd to dis perse, and In this was promptly obeyed. The bouy was removed to an undertaking establlah- I'itr.t. Ten thousand persons are estimated to have viewed it to-day.

Oct. 6.— The Pressed Steel Car Com pany during the last week has dispensed with the services of fly» thousand of Its twelve thousand employes. Some were laid off Wednesday and the others last night. As a result, the plant at Wood's Run, instead of turning out ninety-nix eteel ears each day, will produce only nineteen. The present unsettled condition of the railroads is responsible for laying off the workmen. Many contracta have been cancelled, while In otber«in stances the rallroada are holding back specifica tions on cars that have been ordered, and which cannot be built unlil the specifications are given. Most of the foreigners thus thrown out of em ployment are hurrying to the coal mining towns, where they will be welcomed, as thn mining com panies have not enough men successfully to operate their mine?.

The order, it Is understood, comes from Chicago, and it Is to go into effect to day.

La., Oct. »».— President Roosevelt, and his hunting companions spent a quiet Sun day in camp. They did not attempt to do any hunting, but passed - the time reading and tramping in the vicinity of the tent,-'. The President's quarters are in a bis 10 by 14 foot tent, pitched upon the bank of Ten?as Bayou. There is ■ wooden wall around the tent, and a good solid board floor has been built. He alee pa In a common stationary bed. but is aa comfortable in every way aa if he were in his own apartment at the White House. When the President and his companions reached camp yesterday they found "Ben" Ulley. the noted bear hunter, already on the spot. L.l! ley came up from Texas in response to a hurry call sent to him by John W. Parker, who is act ing: as the President's host. He arrived th«» ~ nJght before with his best bear do«?, but un fortunately the animal was hurt on the train during the trip, and probably will not be abl>> to participate in the hunt. LUte? has the repufation of being the great est hunter who ever lived in Louisiana. He ha-» kiUed '"hundreds of bears." according to popular report. He always follows his dogs on foot, no matter how fast or how far they go. In th « winter time he goes sockless to keep his feet dry. according to his ..id friends. Lilley has lost two wives through hi.-> affection for the woods. Although as good and kind as any husband vrhen at home, he frequently starts out on a hunting trip and forgets to come back: again for am asm! months.

The Secret Service men are !ivinff at the home of Hardy SteKsasasr, who conducts the Parker plantation store, an;i the press association representatives are th» guests of George K. O'Hara. who owns the saw mill at st.i!,iLoui. Manager Shields of the Parker plantations has presented to th* President a handsome bay horse, but he will not use him when on th« hunt, trained ponies being supplied for this purpose. Scouts express* cor.fldenc that some bear will be bagged, and they are even more assurin; on the subject of venis-on. They say the woods ate full of deer at the Virginia, variety, but the dis quietiits: rumor has gone abroad that many oC them are dying of the disease known as "b'acte tongue.*" The party will be augmented to-morrow by th-> addition of a Mr. Metcalf. a guest of Mr Mi - llhenny. and Mi Parker, who will escort th^ msro tifar hunter.
