I i 1 NEGRO BURNED TO DEATH | BY A MOB IN TENNESSEE 8elf-ConfeaseA Murderer of Year-Old Girl I* Summarily Executed. By the Associated Press. MEMPHIS. Tenn.. May 22.?BU Per sons, negro, confessed murderer or An toinette Rappal several weeks ago, was burned to death near the scene of the crime, on the outskirts of Memphis, at 9 o'clock today. A mob estimated at from 2,000 to 3,000 witnessed the death of the negro. In preparation for burning the body was soaked in oil and afterward sus pended in midair from the limb of a nearby tree. A torch was then applied, and the body burned fiercely until the scorched flesh of th# negro fell to the ground. Persons, it is said, was taken from the officials at Potts Camp. Miss., and was rushed through the country by au tomobile to the place where the crime was committed. The officers were bringing Persons to Memphis for trial when intercepted by the mob. Persona is said to have repeated his confession that he killed the child and implicated two other negroes. Members of the mob immediately set out in pur suit of these. When all was in readiness, Mrs. Min nie Woods, mother of the dead girl, was taken to the bridge, where the prisoner was held, and identified him. In a short talk to the mob she declared she wished Persons to suffer the tor tures he dealt to his victim. Persons was taken to the penitentiary at Nashville two weeks ago for safe keeping before details of" his alleged confession were made public. According to a statement made by Sheriff Tate, Persons, a wood chopper, admitted that he attacked the girl, a fifteen-year-old child, when she passed the thicket in which he was at work, dragged her into the underbrush after knocking her unconscious with his ml, and, fearing that she would recover consciousness and accuse him of the attack, chopped off her head, which he concealed with the mutilated body In the thicket. Mob Captures Another Negro. Telephone messages at 10:30 o'clock stated that the mob had captured De witt Ford, a mute, one of the negroes implicated by Persons in the murder of the Rappal girl, and was on the way to the scene of the first lynching. MEET TO OUTLINE ACTION ON CENSORSHIP PROVISION House Republicans Decide, Only One Dissenting', That Clause Should Be Voted Out. Republicans of the House met in con ference this morning to outline har monious party action on the censorship provision of the espionage bill when the conference report on that measure comes up in the House for considera tion. It was the Judgment of the meet ing this morning, with only one dis senting vote, that the censorship clause should be voted against by republi cans. When the bill was up In the House twenty-four republicans voted for the so-called Gard amendment Imposing censorship upon the press, thereby con tributing to its adoption by the House. The Senate omitted from its bill all reference to press censorship, and dur ing the conferences between the two houses the Senate conferees have stoutly resisted the demands of the House conferees in behalf of the Gard amendment. This pressure from the House conferees has continued, despite the practical abandonment by the ad ministration of insistence upon a form of press censorship. The Gard amendment prohibits the dissemination of information that will tend to aid the enemy and provides Jury trial for those Indicted under the proposed act. The Jury would decide whether the Information was intended to be helpful to the enemy. The conferees struggled all day yes terday over the points at issue between the two houses, and then adjourned until tomorrow. Provisions still in dispute Include export embargo, search warrant legislation and warrant for the use of the army and navy to pre vent interference with foreign com-1 merce.
