ANegro Wretch Mutilated in a^Frightful Manner.
But the Punishment Was Brutal^and Almost Inhuman-Trie Con^^servative Element Withdrew^From the Scene
Memphis,Term., Oct. lt.^Jefferson^Ellis, -the^ Laflayet'te county wretch,^was strung up to^a telegraph pole at^1:40 o'clock this morning by 330 white^men, within 200 yards of the scene of^his.crime. Before hanging the negro,^the mob cut off both tils ears and all^of his lingers and mutilated him In a^horrible and unmerciful manner. The^mob, with their prisoner, reached the^home of his victim, Miss Prater, soon^after midnight. The young lady Iden^^tified ihlm as her assailant. As soon^as this was done, an armed squad or^men took Kills from Constable Far row^and started for the pike where the^public road crosses the Louisville ^^Nashville railroad. Here there Is also^a telegraph pole. A big fire had been^built at the place and around it the^mob gathered In a circle. Tin; hand^^cuffed negro was on this knees before^the fire. The leaders of the mob {old^Kills to pray, but he only looked at^them In a stupid manner. Being told he^was about to die, he raised his voice^in a negro hymn, and by the time he^had finished Uhe mob was looking ugly.^The fiercer element was in complete^control.
Criesof ^bum him^ were heard on^all sides. This tearful fate would prob^^ably have been fortunate for the negro^as subsequent events proved. Amid^the shouts of the mob, a man Jumped^to the negro's side with a drawn knife^In his hand. ^Cut off his ears,^ they^cried. ^Give me a flnsvr,^ shouted one^man. ^I want ^ thumb,^ another^cried. The better element In the crowd^drew off at this 'time and sold they^were not In favor of doing anything^but hang the negro. The protests were^not noticed. Being urged on by the^fiercest In the crowd, the man wi-tth the^knife cut off the negro's right ear and^held up the bleeding trophy In full^view of the crowd. The negro screamed^from hl-s torture, but his other ear was^cut off a few moments later. The mob^became madder at the sight of this^work, and those who were mutilating^the negro found ample encouragement.^They next cut off all his flagera, and,^tearing away part of his clothing, they^mutilated him in a horrible manner.
Itwas fully k^ minutes after the tor^^ture began when a rope was put around^tiie negro's neck. A telegraph pole was^^j feet away. The free end of the rope^was taken by a man who climbed the^telegraph pole and threw It over the^cross arm. The crowd Jerked the negro^^to the foot of the pole, and while the^mob shouted, the bleeding and mutilat^^ed form was swung to the cross-arm.
Thenegro was lowered to the ground^later and his head cut from the body^with pocket knives. The noose was^then put over the feet of the headless^body again swung up. It is Intended^to send the head to the family of the^little girl the negro attempted to as^^sault Saturday In Mississippi. A pla^^card was put on 'the negro s body bear^^ing the words: ^Death to the man who^cuts him down before 6:30 this even^^ing.^ Passengers on the Louisville ^^Nashville trains to-lay may see the^horrible sight. The i^o!nt where the^lynching occurred is a cross-road called^Clifton Summit.
JeffKills, on the afternoon of Oct. 5^criminally assaulted Miss Beattie Pra^^ter In the presence of the latter's two^little sisters. He was pursued unre^^mittingly until captured Monday near^Mount Pleasant, Mississippi. He con^^fessed the assault upon Miss Prater,^tho outrage and murder of Mrs. Wilcox^of the eame neighborhood, two years^ago, and an attempted assault upon a^Mississippi girl while jH*..ng to escape^from the mob.

Atlanta,Ga., Oct. 18.^The second^days' session of t'no American Bankers^association was called to order this^morning by President O'DelL C^arrnaaai^E. W. Pullen r ad an extensive report^from the executive council In reference^to the proposed change In file wording^of the constitution. Banker Aii.--.lg.^road a paper In opposition to the free^coinage of silver . ^The proposition^that this government should coin silver^for tho world in unlimited amounts at^double It market value Is so repug^^nant to the common ajakl of mankind,^^^aid Mr. Aldredge, ^that it ought to be^unnecessary to discuss it, and would be^hut for the fact that a portion of our^people have- been misled by appeals to^their pr-Judlee.^ He pointed out that^the leading nations of the earth, after^testing silver for hundreds of years,^voluntarily adopted the single goid^standard, and that no nation to-day^has the sliver standard from choice.
Mr.Aldredge charged that It waa re^^pudiation of debt and not coinage that^the 16-to-l men are after, and said;^^Allow me to say. in conclusion, that^our country is in no danger of repudia^^tion. This 16-to-l coinage clamor Is^but one of 'the nunlfertations of hard^times, brought on by the late panic.^On lowlands In the night time a deadly^mlasma accumulates, but when the^bright sun climbs over the hilltops and^shoots Its perfecting rays into the^marshes, the miasma disperses. The^atmosphere Is sweetened and made^wholesome and men go forth to their^dally avocations with assurance of^health. In spite of all the Isms that^have afflicted us. In splto of demagog-^Ism on the stump and in the govern^^ment halls, the country Is rapidly ad^^vancing. Our factories are taxed to^their utmost with orders, and the wa^^ges of their employes have been every^^where voluntarily raised. Prices that^were depressed by the panic are Im^^proving, minister discontent is 8svrlM^before ttM presence of prosperity, and^in after years the heresies of lo-day^will only bo remembered as a troubled^dream. The American people are 'acn^^es: and patriotic. Upon this rocK we^build our faith and all the ages and^agencies of truth are ours for the su^^perstructure.
Atthe conclusion of Judge Aldredge s^speech, the enthusiasm it occas.oued^broke out again In three hearty cheers.^On moiion. t'-.'.s speech was e.-M. re 1^printed and sent to every national,^state and private bank in the I 1^States. The convention adjourned ua-^til to-morrow at 9:30 a. m.
