ter leaving the jail, a special to the Ga
zi ttc says, the men were placed in a
I wagon prepared, and Uie Immense eon
course, at the command, "Forward,
march," took up the line of march.
It appears that they were desirious of
executing them near the sceue of the
terrible outrage, so they repaired to the
runimei iarm, in sight of the pi
where the poor young girl hail be
lated, inurrlered and Fhniwn to th
wnere tney naiu-u unoer a sapling, a
rude gallows was improvised and the
three prisoners fitted with halters about
their necks.
At this juncture ElUv Secure, brother
of the murdered girl, appeared and
pleaded with the crowd for the life of
Jacob Kim in el, the youngest prisoner,
who was but seventeen years of age, ex
pressing his doubts as to bis participa
tion in the affair. His appeal was re
ceived with cheers, and young Kimmel
was exempted from the sentence which
the people had passed on all, bat the
other two were doomed.
Absalom Kimmel was much broken
down, butMcLeod maintained the same
stoical indifference tlat he had shown
from the first. He maintained strictly
that he had never seen tbe girl, and ac
counted for the blood on his clothes by
bleeding at the nose. He took a testa
ment, kissed it, aud called on God to at
test his innocence. He importuned
them to have mercy ou his poor mother
and sisters, and asked God to forgive
them all.
Absalom Kimmel ad'.iered to his con
fession made the day before, that after
returning from church on Sunday, June
SSd, MeLeod asked if any girls went
west, and when Jacob Kimmel said
several, they all weiit in that direction
until they come to the place where the
girl was murdered. Each violated Iter
person once, and MeLeod the second
time, after which MeLeod knocked her
on the head with a heavy stick. This
was about mid-day.
They then went to the Kimmel home,
and at night MeLeod told them that he
had been back to the place, and that she
was not dead, but that he bad killed
her. The two were hung until they
were dead, while the yininger Kimmel
was returned to the jail. The ftther of
the Kimmels was warned to leave the
country in a specified time, and the ter
ribly tragic scene, almost unparalleled
in this part of the country, was ended.

The victory which came from that
union was the end of proscription, test

Intense applause, i If lodeemed that

constitution, and not one murmur
of disloyalty is anywhere heard
by that union. Federal dictation
in Missouri in their local election was
overthrown, and by that union strife
and hate had given place to peace and
to good will ; by that union liberty, with
equal rights for ail, has given to the
Stat unliounded presiieriry, and her
people a joy almost uuspeakable. So
great was their joy and so complete their
