Tour companies of militia nrrhed at 3.30
this morning from Springfield. Companies
A. I, B and II of the Seenth Illinois Infan
try were sent in reply to urgent requests at
midnight to Stjte officials. TIi troops
marched to the market house, opposite the
Jail, and camped. Streets wera cleared and
the threatening attitude of the crowds dis
appeared. There were sullen threats heard, hut no
attempt at an outbreak was manifest dur
ing the day. To-night 100 --enlinels are pa
trolling the streets in the Immediate viclnlt

louuds of ammunition.
Sheriff Whltlock iald to-day, in ghlng
his version of the shooting Into the mob.
"Aftpr I saw from the Jail that the mob
was t determined to attack I went to the
leranda and attempted to talk to the mad
dened men. As I stepped Into ilew of the
crowd two bullets wero fired, one striking
the wall back of me.
"I fired two shots In the air Some one
shouted that I was onlv bluffing and that
I was shooting blank cartridges I warned
the mob that I would resist an attuck on
the Jail with powder and lead.
"There was another shot from the mob
and It surged forward. I then fired a shot
from my shotgun Into their leg". Thin
drove them bnck, but they returned a.
moment later to the attack of the front
door. I was alarmed for the safety of my
wife and children.
"My wife took a gun and said she would
stand by mc I got her and the children
out of the way and then ns the leaders
came with tho rail to batter down the
walls I shot along the rail to make them
drop It. This accounts for &o many being
bhot In the hands and arms. I fired eight
or ten shots in all."
Sheriff Whitlock had four Deputies and
three Constables w Itli him In the Jail guard
ing the prisoners. He sajs no one fired into
the mob but himself.
There are nil sorts of rumors afloat to
