Tho Citizen« Are Greatly Excited He C!tii«o tlie Murderer« of Ml«« Annie Le* coney «nd Mrs. Annie Miller Have N«*t | IScen Drought to .Iu«tlre. I By Telegraph to tlie Evening Journal.! Mkucha.ntville, N. J., Nov. 14. —'Tlie good people of Merchnntville are in arms because of the acquittal in Camden of Francis Lingo (colored), the alleged mur derer of Mrs. Annie Miller. Their anger knows no bounds, and is intermingled with | fear that some one else may be murdered in tliut vicinity and thu perpetrator go un punished. The wives and daughter* of the well to do residents—and they are numer ous—actually dread to leave their homes alone for fear that something may happen them. As Boon as it was learned that I Lingo was a free man threats of lynching him, should he return to the community, were freely made, and the threats grow in earnestness and volume. I As the outcome ok this state of affairs an Indignation meeting was held at 4 o'clock In the Merchnntville town hall, which was attended by 200 of the most prominent'eiti- I sens of the locality. It was presided over by Thomas C. Knight, president of tlie | Philadelphia Brokers' exchange, and a com mittee of three, consisting of John Morton, Edward Nash and Frederick Kleintz, was appointed to confer with Camden County Prosecutor Jenkins, who conducted the case against Lingo, nnd see what could be done to keep the acquitted negro from re turning to the neighborhood. . No Safety for Women. Resolutions were presented, nnd although referred to a committee of five, they were practically adopted, censuring ex-Judge Wescott, senior counsel for Lingo; express ing sympathy with John Miller, husband of the murdered woman, nnd disapproving of tlie abrupt ending of the trial. The I committee is composed of John Allen, I Clmr'es Hollingshend, Edward W. Morris, M illiam Longstreth und MorrisRedderow, all wealthy and influeutial citizens. An other meeting will be held, The citizens argue that as the murders of Miss Annie Leconey and Mrs. Annie Miller, both of which occured within their midst, are unavenged, there is no safety for them; that their lives and the lives of their families are in constant peril and that pre cautions must be taken. They fear that the acquittal of Chalkley Leconey and Francis Lingo, of the respec tive murders (the latter was also arrested for the first crime), will set a lawless pre cedent that may result in anotiier myste rious killing. They also feel that some one should be banged for each murder, but as there is no probability of either mystery ever being cleared, the best t hey can do is to Uike, in a measure, tlie law iu their own hands and protect,«.heir homes by aggres sive methods. Tlie MatcUtown negroes, who are particularly feared, are aroused, and threaten vengennee upon any one who shall maltreat Lingo. Lingo says lie will never return to Mer chnntville. He will exhibit himself iu a dime museum in Philadelphia this week. Mormons Keep tlie Money.

The front door was open and all the money in the safe was gouo. Tho detectives were culled hut conld get no clue to the thieves. Goldberg states tlint ho came to the store about 2 o'clock in the afternoon to work on his books. He locked tlie front door after him. and, opening the safe, took out the books, and laying them on his desk, went to work. Suddenly he felt himself seized from behind and knew nothing more until what ho believes to be several hours after. Goldberg asserts that lie believes that robbers were concealed In tho cellar of tho store. Knowing his habit of coming down Sunday afternoon and opening the safe and as soon as he became absorbed in his books they slipped up behind him and throwing u towel saturated with chloroform over Ids mouth, soon had 1dm nnconsoioue ; that they then took hie watch, shirt stud and about $ 1 'JO in money from him and then rilled tlie safe of about $lOt> and business papers.
