A liee)rale)v Convicted Mardsrer

From th Cincinnati Gantte, Nov. 21.
About 12:30 o'clock last Sunday morn
ing a mob, composed of some seventy-
five or eighty residents of Aurora and
Manchester, entered Brookville, Ind.,
and proceeded to the jail for the pur
pose of hanging McDonald Cheek. They
had come in wagons, in two bodies, from
different directions, and by preconcerted
arrangement, met in the outskirts of the
Tillage, leaving their wagons about
mile out of town in the timber on the
west fork of the Whitewater.
Arriving at the jail, tledge-hammers
and crowbars were produced, and tiie
work of breaking down the outer doors
commenced. These were three in num
ber, constructed ot iron, and withstood
the united efforts of the mob for some
twenty minutes before an entrance was
forced. As the lost door fell the party
lormed in military order, and betore en
tering indulged in a little formality.
which, under the circumstances, seems
slightly superfluous.
The leader, standing at the entrance,
repeated the words: " One, two, three,
in goes he," and stepped inside, followed
by bis companions, each one as he en
tered repeating the cabalistic words,
which, in view of the unexpected ter
mination of the attempt, when it became
necessary to reverse the movement and
hurriedly execute " outgoes he," impart
a ludicrous tinge to what was intended
to be a tragic retribution.
A long hall runs through the jail.
upon each side of which are located the
cells. Cheek occupied the third one
from the door on the right-hand side.
The cell doors wero open, as is'the cus
tom, in order to give the prisoners op
portunities for exercise in the hall, .
With the first blow upon the solid
outer doors Cheek ronsed from his slum
ber, and knew intuitively that the hour
tor which he has long looked had coma.
Alone in the darkness of his cell, know
ing that there waa but little Probability
of the arrival of aid, he made prepara
tion for defense, determined, at least, to
sell his life as dearly as be could.
Wrenching a post from the low bedstead
from which he had just risen, he took
his station near the door and awaited
the coming straggle, In spito of the
awful crime that brought him to a mur
derer's cell one cannot repress a senti
ment ot admiration tor the conrage and
coolness with which he prepured to meet
what seemed his inevitable doom.
After a word or two among themselves
they proceeded direct to Cheek'a cell,
knocked at the door, which was about
half opened, and inquired. " Who's
here?"
Cheek replied "Ilarry." the name of
a fellow prisoner.
Come out anil show yourself. .
He remained motionless.
They asked auni n, "Who's in here?"
and he replied as before "Harry."
A member ot t lie party cried Hints
Cheek, now!" Oneof them, raising the
side of a dark lantern, looked within the
cell, and seeing the desperate man
standing nt bay like a hunted tiger, has
tily withdrew with the cry, " he has got a
club!"
Shoot him I shoot him! yelled seve
ral of the mob.
" No, no; don't shoot him. Here is a
rope let s hang him, said one who ap
peared to exercise authority.
Said another, " Shoot him, if you
can't get him."
At this moment Cheek made a move
ment, and one of the party lunged at
him with a crowbar,' bruising his side,
but inflicting no serious injury.
Another, who did not believe in incom
plete work, drew a navy revolver from
his breast pocket, and. handing it to one
of his comrades who was flourishing a
small pistol, said, " Hare, take my re
volver! don't shoot him with that little
one! It won t kill him. ;
That man would have been a capital
executive officer of the Paris Commune.
The speaker then thrust his weapon
inside the door and fired. The muzzle
of the revolver pressed against Cheek's
side, but at the moment it was discharg
ed he dashed it aside, end the bullet
glanced across his knuckles, inflicting a
slight wound. The man who had fired
then put his head inside the cell to Bee
if the shot had killed tbo prisoner, but
as he did so the bludgeon with which
Cheek had armed himself crashed down
upon his unprotected head, and he drop
ped to the floor like a felled ox.- His re
volver dropped from his hand, and was
at once seized by the prisoner.
As they saw the senseless form ot their
comrade, and beard the crashing blow.
one of their number cried, " Sly God!
he has killed Snyder and has got his re
volver.
Then these seventy-tivo courageous
men held an impromptu convention to
decide as to the next step to be taken
No doubt, as they stood there in the
ghastly light of the dark lantern, with
one of their number lying senseless and
apparently dead at their feet, they expe
rienced the peculiar sensations so graph
ically described in the narrative ol liob
Acres. '
After a few moments of irresolute
suspense, eyeing the gloomy cell from
which came such a deadly check upon
their operations, one ot the gang, stand-
ng securely behind the hall-opened
door, pointed his revolver around the
corner, but betore he could bre the
weapon was stricken from bit hand by
Cheek, and be subsided.
Another consultation was bad. .Some
body said, '' Let us get out of here, and
they "got." Picking up the prostrate
form of their fallen comrade they
marched out, each one repeating as he
stepped otlt of the battered entrance-
way, "One, two, three, out goes he,"
very thankful that, notwithstanding the
failure of the enterprise, they had come
off with such slight loss in this well-
matched encounter between one to
seventy-five. .....
Cheek, with his bed-post in one hand
and the captured revolver in the other,
harassed the rear of the retreating col
umn out into the jail yard, where he
met the sheriff and a party ..of citizens,
who had been arsused by an alarm from
the jailer. -
When the sheriff saw them coming
out of tha building carrying the
body of the victim he halloed to them,
thinking they were bearing off his pris
oner. The only reply he received was:
KircJ firel shoot the I"
When the regulators reached the
street, and taw the commotion caused
by their attempt, they broke and ran
in every direction, several ot them
lost their way in the timber and corn
fields, and were teen by farmers resid
ing in the vicinity at daylight, with
scared faces and soiled garments, not in
the least raembling the fearless, dare
devil sort of fellows they imagined
themselves a few hours before.
Cheek surrendered himself to the
sheriff with th remark, " John, get me
a horse and posse, and I will follow them
and show where every of them lives
before morning. I don't want you to go
info danger. I'll go."
when aaaed, afterward, why he did
not attempt to escape, he replied: "I
am no', going away from here until I go
free or on toy way to tha scaffold This
is three times they kzn iried to mob me
and failed."
After daylight tha sheriff went to the
place where the horses of the party had
ueen leit, and touna two or tnree niton
ing-strnps. a halter and a bottle of whis
key. These articles, with the captured
revolver, dark lantern, a sledge-hammer
and a crowbar, are in the sheriff's
hands, and are said to have been identi
ties.
.Two attempts have previously been
made to lynch Cheek, both at Lawrence
burg ono soon after the murder of his
r.i.T - i i . i I 1 .
lutiier-lll-iaw, anu luu uiuer a auuri time
subsequently.
Though convicted of murder in the
first degree, and seutenced to be hung.
a new trial was granted to Cheek by the
Supreme Court of the State a short time
ago, and it probably was a fear that the
criminal would ultimately escape justice
that led the misguided men who figured
in the attempted lynching on Sunday
morning to engage in an expedition
which resulted in such a complete dis
comfiture. Whetber Snyder s inju
ries were slight or fatal has not yet been
ascertained, but it is hoped they will lead
to his identification and the arrest of all
engaged in this outrage upon the law.
The citizens of lirookville and vic'in
ity are highly excited over the lawless
act, and insist upon a full exposure and
Bwift punishment of the self-constituted,
would-be executioners of McDonald
Cheek.
The new trial of the murderer will
take place in Brookville, commencing
on the hrst ot tlecember.

From the Virginia City (Nevada) Enter
prise, November lOtb.J
A new importation to this city kicked
up such a row about town night before
last that the police and many others
began to think about half the people in
town were dropping down dead in their
tracks. First, a man had dropped down
dead at a house on such a street, then a
man bad fallen down in a dying condi
tion in another place, and soon it was in
another place that a man " lay dying."
At length it was discovered that one
man was doing all the dying. He had
then died about hali a dozen times, and
had been so often restored to life that he
was almost too drunk to die naturally.
He first went into a house on D street,
took a fit, and fell so dead that with all
the stimulants that could be poured down
his gullet he refused to come to life un
til the woman of the house became half
frightened out of her wits and blew her
whistle for a policeman, when lo! a mir
acle the dead man got upon his pins
and ran away. He next went into an
other house of the same class in the
same street and died there, falling head
long to the floor with such otter aban
don as to shake the whole house. The
women were terribly frightened; they
poured water on his face, bathed his
head, and as fast as he revived a little
turned brandy (the only thing besides
InaHy or gin that be could swallow)
down his throat. He went for brandy
like a kitten after new milk, andns soon
as he had swallowed all in sight re
lapsed in the hope of being revived
again with the congenial resuscitator.
rinding that a physician bad been
sent for, he recovered and got out of the
house. When he next fell dead we do
not know, but during the night he went
to Scott's dance-house, on south C street,
and fell dead as a door-nail. Water out
side and brandy inside, with a talk of
bringing in a policeman, set him on his
nins. and he departed. Ua afterward
went to Evans' chop-house, corner of C
nnd Union streets, and, going back to
the filter, drew a glass of water, and
while trying to drink it took two orthree
steps backward, jumped bigh in the air,
then came down like a thousand of brick
between the rows of tables, to the great
consternation of the two waiters. There
he lay at full length, his head thrown
back, and only the whites ot his eyes vis
ible, to all appearances as dead as a
door-nail. The boys sopped him and
mopped bim with cold water, rubbed his
head, and did all they could for him, but
he was to all appearances stone-dead.
His face was white, no pulse could be
tclt, and his eyes were set in his head
with not a bit of " speculation " in them,
One of the waiters was about going for
a doctor, when the dead man suddenly
lted his bead and began laughing.
Leaving the dumbfounded waiters, he
stalked away, no doubt to die in some
place where bis favorite revivers were
more likely to be found. Those who saw
bis performance and assisted in restor
ing him say that they would have sworn
that he was a dying, and then a dead
man, not believing scch a piece of act
ing possible with any human being. He
seemed, they say, to have the power of
instantly stopping the beating ot his
pulse, and of changing the healthful ap
pearance of his face to the pallor of
death.
New Story A bo at Richmond.
Some one was telling me, the other
day, a new story about the late Dean
Richmond, who was known far and
wide for his profanity and gruffness of
manner. Richmond was here at the
time, and my informant, who was then a
boy working in a printing omce, wished
to get passed over the Central railroad.
With this purpose in view he entered
the office where the magnate was, fear
ing that he should be rudely rebuffed
when he made his mission known. After
a moment's hesitation he said falter
ingly:
Mr. Richmond, I believe?"
" Yes, what do you want of me?"
1 should like, sir, to get a pass trom
Albany to Buffalo, as
1 can go up on
the boat for nHhing.
"On what grounds do yon
pass?" (This with a rising
ask for a
and very
grull voice.)
."On the grounds, sir, that I don't
want to pay my fare.'
Richmond, without another word,
wrote out a pass and handed it to the ap
plicant. The boy took it, saying: "Thank
you, thank you, Mr. Richmond."
" Von needn't thank me, youngster.
I'm d d glad to accommodate yon.
Von are the first person I've ever
known, by O d, to ask for a pass on
the right grouads "
A laes With a Paatther.
In Pennsylvania, a few days ago. a
boy of fourteen years, living in Rockton,
Clearfield county, made a narrow escape
from a panther. While on his way to
the tunnel, on an errand, in Union town
ship, he was startled by a low and heavy
growl nearly overhead. Upon looking
up he saw a panther perched on a tree,
about thirty leet from tae ground, which
was wagging its tail, in anticipation of
springing upon its prey. Ho sooner did
the boy's eyes meet the panther than it
gave a loud and very piercing yell, and
leaped to the ground. This sudden.
bold and noisy demonstration on the
part of the panther frightened the colt
which th. boy was riding, and it took to
flight at full speed the panther keeping
close to its side and about neck to neck,
giving an occasional fierce yell, which
seeme-d to add speed to the colt's feet.
After running in this manner tor about
forty toim the panther gave up th, chasa.

The St. Louis Republican of the 2(ith
contains the following:
Col. J. 8. Haymaker, a prominent man
in the Southwest was found dead in his
bed at room No. 30 at Barnum's Hotel
yesterday morning. Colonel Haymaker
was originally from Wooster, Ohio, and
fur some time past has been engaged in
heavy speculations in the vicinity of
Fort Smith, Ark., where his wife and
daughter now reside. His property is
estimated at about $60,000, and we un
derstand he is president of the National
bapk there. Mr. Haymaker appears to
hare gone to bis room to rest and bad
laid aside his over and undercoat and
vest and got into bed with his pants on.
When fouud he was lying on his right
side in comparatively an easy position.
as if death had come to bim quietly and
with but little pain. Ua searching the
body Coroner Dudley found some $275
in the pockets, and valuable papers re
lating to land and land excavation, etc.
It is not certain that the deceased had
any suicidal intention, although death is
believed to have resulted from morphine.
A glass on the washstand had a small
amount of this powerful narcotic evi
dently taken in water, and in a valise
was found a vial (one-eigbta ounce)
about two-thirds lull.
