The most exciting night ever known in
Cincinnati has just closed, and the city
this morning is in a stunned and dazed
condition, people asking each other with
bated breath and blanched check, "When
is all this to end?"
Tie deep feeliug of indignation which
has possessed all minds at the pusillani
mous action of our courts in a
general shielding of murderers
from the penalties due to their
erinies was multiplied aud intensilled by
the shameless verdict of imprisonment
for a limited term of the red-handed mur
derer Herner, indicted for and clearly
proven guilty of the deliberate aud brutal
murder of Wm. H. Kirk.
A meeting was called by some of the
best citizens to protest against the action
of the jury, and by seven o'clock Music
Hall was well tilled with a constantly
increasing crowd. Long before the
meeting was called to order ten thousand
people crowded in the hall and
surged about the corridors and tilled
the space in front of the building. The
looks of the people were ominous of evil.
Those who called the meeting soon saw
that they had raised a storm that might
end in a whirlwind, but it was too late to
back out. They organized with a long
list of Vice-Presidents and the usual
officers. They intended to counsel together
and advise as to the best means of
ridding Cincinnati of the stain that was
on her. The more moderate the better,
in the presence of the angry element.
The people were aroused it was not a
mob of the lower classes, but an angry
gathering of the best citizens, indignant

only needed a breath to fan it into a roar
Dr. Kemper, a respected citizen, was
made chairman, and made a conservative
speech counselling moderation and dis
closing how to correct the abuses of
criminal nroceednre aud jury trial. An
allusion to the Herner jury was met by
cries of "hang them;" "hang them all;"
"lynch 'em." One man called out: "I
thought we came here to organize a vig
ilance committee; if so, let us go to
work." Shouts of "Yes, yes," mingled
with a few feeble noes" greeted the sug
gestion. Order was partially restored and the
speaker introduced General Hickenlooper,
who spoke in the same strain, with fre
quent interruptions of the same sort.
Then Judge Carter comes forward and
addresses them, giving his long experi
ence on the bench, and saying
he had not heard of such an out
rage on law in all his life before.
II the jury was believed to have been
di-lrouest in ttiis matter they should
be allowed to leave the country, for

heard on all sides.
Hesolutions strbng and sharp were
hr. .tight in ami passed with a whirl. A
friend of Campbell, Benners Laymer,
tried to amend them, but the crowd
would have none of it. Tln-y became
more and more boisterous; their blood
was getting hotter; the tiger in men's
bosoms was awakened. The leader saw

as quickly as possible adjourned at '.' :45,
and iu live minutes the hall was empty.
Mayor Stevens was sick in bed and the
whole duty of preserving the peace rested
upon the Sheriff.
At five minutes of ten the tire bells
struck 621, the number of she Court
lmuse. Instantly the city was in commo
tion. Everybody knew what it meant.
Crowds filled the jail. Fifteen thousand
people were there in fifteen minutes.
The first overt act was by some boys who
began to stone the jail. Very soon a
crowd gathered. It was soon reinforce! I

time all the windows of the jail were
The crowd had ropes. They broke into
a carriage factory across the street and
took out a huge beam sledge-hammer, &c.
A dozen men ran with the beam as a bat

The police upon arriving in the vicinity
of the jail commanded the crowd to move;
not being obeyed, they tired, but as no
one was hurt It was presumed the police
tired in the air they beiug deeply iu sym
pathy with the movement to condemn
the outrageous Berner verdict. A shot or
two was tired from the jail, but the crow d
refused to move.
Inside the Sheriff, Jailer and Deputies
kept themselves as calm as possible.
The mob found Berner gone. They
tried to find the Burkers and to batter
down the cell door of one of them. By
this time the police were thick about
them. They got possession of the jail
ami restored order in a slight degree;
but they did not dare to make any ar
rests; the mob would not allow it. They
filled the house and roamed about un
checked seeking some luckless criminal
ou whom to wreak vengeance. There
was shooting but it was up to this time
only from the mob firing in the air.
The First Kcgimentof the O. N. G. were
drilling in their armory a couple of squares
away from the jail. Sheriff Hawkins
brought over a detachment and intro
duced them into the jail through the cel
lar. The mob filled the corridors. They
were ordered to withdraw, but refused,
and the militia opened fire, shooting,
perhaps, sixty rounds. The corridors
were tilled with smoke, the gas went out
and pandemonium reigned, but the mob
was driven out.
What the effect of the s'looting was on
the mob is not at this hour (miduight)
known. Two policemen were shot bj
the rioters, one militiaman, one civil
ian and one boy, the last badly hurt.
The mob remained outside howling,
yelling and threatening vengeance.
They gathered np material and
made a bonfire against the
strong, thick stone walls of the jail.
The flames made a great light and a yet!
was raised that the jail had been flred. It
looked as though the mob had deter
mined ou a wholesale holocaust. An
alarm was turned on and the engines
came to the scene, but could not get near
the place for the crowd, and set ing w hat
it was, went back again. There was no
tlangcr there of tire. The mob kept pres

the military tired on the mob at that
place and Lew Kent, a laborer
aud member of the mob, was
shot and killed. This seemed to break the
spirit of the mob, though they did not re
tire hastily. A number of brickbats were
thrown by them at tfec soldiers and po
lice, but generally there was not much
bitterness of feeling displayed on either
side. The great superiority of the de
fenders of the jail over the unarmed and
impromptu mob w as so manifest when the
former opened lire that It would
have been utter folly to make any further
effort. Some twenty-five or thirty men
were arrested in jail. The jailer's resi
dence in the jail, which was entered by a
portion of the mob, was rudely handled,
the windows broken and furniture
smashed. From this a number of men
made their way Into the kitchen and
thence to the lower corridor. After the
apparent relinquishment of the main ef
fort to get at the prisoners the mob lin
gered outside, throwing stones and brick
bats at the windows.

a soldier, through the jail window. Cobb
was a by-stander on the sidewalk. The
crowd claim soldiers are tiring un

What with the tremendous slaughter of
men, the destruction of the Court House
and th; anarchy for the time pre vailing, Cin
cinnati last night earned the title of the
Paris of America, in a sense not at
all complimentary to the city. Citi
zens who hoiK-d the trouble had
terminated with the demonstration on
Friday night, realized the seriousness of
tin situation last night. The city was at
the mercy of the mob. The streets are
running with blood. Terrified jieople
were kept awake in their beds by the
deadly sound of fire arms. Surgeons
were even where with bloody hands dress
ing the won ads of men shot down in the
streets. Men were defending their prem
ises from the rapacity of the mob, and
there were all the other scenes of an
archy. It was about $480 p. m. local
time when the mob commenced its
attack ou the First Kegiment of the
Ohio National Guards, which was
stationed in the jail and Court-house
and behind barricades in the streets.
Attacks and repulses continued till the
Fourteenth Ohio Infantrv arrived, and In
the meantime the Conrt-honse was fired
thoroughly so as to be untenable by the
soldiers, and the Fire Iepartnieiit were
driven awav by the mob. The Court

and a half, when the Fourteenth Kegi

a little after eleven o'clock, local time.

and entered the barricade on Sycamore
