Axe Recaptured.
BUTTE, Mont., Aug. 9.— Two prisoners
under sentence of death for murder, an
other awaiting trial on a charge of mur
der, a stage robber wanted in Wyoming
and two highwaymen escaped . from the
county jail here late this afternoon.
The men who. escaped are: Charles
Lenox and James Martin, convicted of
murder; L. L. Felker, who escaped once
before and has been tried twice for th«:
murder of William Cunningham, his
brother-in-law, and is awaiting a third
trial; J. 8. Woods and Patrick Rodger*,
held for robbery, and .' Frank Oestroff,
wanted In Cheyenne for having held up
a stage coach. The latter and Woods,
who had , planned the delivery, were
caught within an hour after they escaped.
Oestroff complained of being sick and a
doctor was called In. When Jailer Dolan
opened the corridor Oestroff drew a re
volver and compelled Dolan to deliver the
cell keys. The other prisoners were lib
erated and coolly left the building by the
main entrance. Oestroff and Woods were
run. down by horsemen and brought back
to jaiL
Two posses were quickly, organized and
are now in pursuit of the others.
"Moreover, tho history of these recent
cases shows the awful fact that when the
minds of mm are habituated to the use ot
torture by lawless bodies to avenge crimes
of a peculiarly revolting description, other
lawless bodies will use torture In order to
punish crimes of an ordinary type.
"Surely no natrlot can fail . to see the
f earful brutalization and debasement which
the Indulgence of such a spirit and such
practices- inevitably portend. Surely, all
public men, all writers for the dally press,
all clergymen, all teachers, all who In any
way have a right to address the public
should with every energy denounce such
crimes and. to support those engaged in
putting i them down. As a people we
claim the right to speak with peculiar
emphasis for freedom and for, fair treat
ment of all men without regard to dif
ference of race, -fortune, creed or color.
We forfeit the right so to speak when we
commit or condone such crimes as those
of which I speak. .
"The nation, like the individual, cannot
commit a crime with impunity. If we are
guilty of lawlessness and brutal violence,
whether our guilt consists in active par
ticipation therein or; in mere connection
ana encouragement, we shall assuredly
suffer later on because of what we have
done. ,The cornerstone of this republic,
as of all free governments, is respect for
and obedience to the law. Where we per
mit the. law to be defied or evaaed,
whether by rich man or poor man, black
man or white man. we are by just so'
much weakening me bonds of our civili
zation and increasing the chances of its
overthrow and of the substitution there
for of a system. In which there shall be
violent altercations of . anarchy and
tyranny. Sincerely yours,'
. "In the recent cases of lynching over
three- fourths were not for rape at all,
but for murder, attempted murder and
even less heinous offenses. .
"This matter of lynching would bo a
terrible thing even If It stopped with the
lynching of men guilty of the inhuman
and hideous crime of rape; but as a mat
ter of fact, the lawlessness of this type
never does stop and never can stop in
such fashion. Every violent man in the
community is encouraged by every case
of lynching. In which the lynchers go un
punished, to take the law into his own
hands whenever it suits his own con
venience. In the same way the use of
torture by the mob in certain cases i3
sure to spread until it is applied more or
less indiscriminately in other cases. The
spirit of lawlessness grows with what it
feeds on, and when mobs with impunity
lynch criminals for one cause, they are
certain to begin to lynch real or alleged
criminals for other causes. - .
-"It. is, of course, inevitable that where
vengeance is taken by a mob it should
frequently faJl on innocent people and for
the wrong done in such a.. case there is
no remedy. But even where criminals aro
reached, 1 the wrong done by the mob to
the community' itself is well nigh as
great. Especially Is this true where the
lynching is accompanied with ¦ torture.
There are certain hideous sights which
when once seen can never be wholly
erased from the mental retina. The mere
fact of having seen them implies degra
dation. This is a thousandfold stronger
when, instead of merely seeing the deed,"
the man has participated in It. Whoever,
In any part of our country, has ever tak
en part in lawlessly putting to death a
criminal by the dreadful torture of fire
must forever after have the awful spec
tacle of his handiwork seared into hi. -5
brain and soul. He can never again be
the same man.

."But the fullest recognition of the. hor
ror of the crime and the most complete
laok of sympathy with the criminal can
not in the least diminish our horror at the
way in which it. has been, customary, to
avenge their crimes and at the conse
quences that are already; proceeding

CHEYENNE, W'yo., Aug. 9.— Tom Horn,
the condemned murderer of little Willie
Klckoll, and Jim McCloud, in custody for
postofflce robbery, escaped from the
county jail at 8:40 o'clock this • morniijg
after overpowering Deputy Sheriff Proc
tor, but were recaptured after a brief but.
exciting chase. The ringing of fire bells
brought hundreds of armed citizens to
the scene, and it looked for a time as
though a lynching would take place, but
the escapes were hurriedly brought back
to the Jail and placed In their cells be
fore the crowds could form themselves
Into a mob. The men did not get but two
blocks away before they were retaken.
The plot which led to their escape was
well planned. Horn and McCloud were
the only prisoners confinea on the upper
floor of the Jail. They occupied steel
cells, eo arranged that communication
was comparatively easy. This morning
McCloud complained to Deputy Proctor of
being ill and requested some medicine and
a glass of water. Upon returning with
the. articles asked for Proctor discovered
that the men had lef$ their cells, which
were not locked, and had walked to the
end of the corridor through which they
were allowed to exercise. When Proctor
.opened the. door to the corridor he was
pouiiced upon by the two men and se
curely bound with a cord which they had
secured in some- manner. Horn and Mc-
Cloud demanded .that he give them .his
keys, and, although Proctor . had them
on his person, he replied that they were
locked up in the safe. Proctor was then
conducted to where the safe stood and
directed to open it. The order was obeyed,
but on opening the aafe Proctor snatched
from Inside a gun and turned on the men.
They were too quick for him. however,
and* soon bore him down.. In the brief
struggle vProctop fired his revolver at
them four times, slightly wounding Mc-
Cloud. The shooting attracted the at
tention of Deputy Snow, who hastened to
the scene, but was met at the doorway
by McCloud. who had secured possession
of a shotgun In some manner. Snow re
treated and Horn and McCloud escaped
through a rear door of the Jail, after
binding the arms of Deputy Proctor.' Mc-
Cloud secured the only horso In the
Sheriff's stable and mounted the animal
arid started toward the west Horn ran
in the opposlto-'direotlon. •' : • -
About this time Sheriff Smalley arrived
on the scene and started in .pursuit of
McCloud, firing his revolver without
effect. After a short chase McCloud sur
rendered.'When Horn left the Jail yard
the fact that he wore no hat and carried
a revolver attracted the attention of O.
M. Elurich, who operates an amusement
stand across the street. Eldrich gave
chase, firing several shots at Horn, one
of which grazed his neck. Horn, slightly
wounded, turned and aimed his revolver
at Eldrich, but the gun being of an auto
matic lock pattern, one with which Horn
was unfamiliar, he was unable to dis
charge it, and, realizing his helplessness,
Horn surrendered just as Eldrich was
about to shoofagain. When Eldrich ap
proached Horn, the latter showed fight,
but was beaten Into submission by hia
plucky pursuer. By this time numbers of
officers and citizens had gathered at the
spot, and Horn, bleeding from his wounds,
was dragged back to the jail. Quiet pre
vails now and there Is no probability of
an attempt being made to lynch the Jail

and "Long live Pius X!" were raised, not

throughout the basilica, saying "Acclama

faces among them, the Cardinal-Bishops
in their capes, the. Cardinal-priests wear

in their delmatics.
Another figure which evoked murmurs
cf admiration and craning of necks was
th« chaplain, in his crimson cape, proudly
bearing the cushion on which reposed the
famous triple crown, so soon to rest on
the head of Pius X. He was accompanied
by the pontifical Jeweler and by a special
jruard composed of Swiss, and was fol
lowed by the choir of the SIstine chapel.
Before leaving tho Vatican the Pope
went to thei Sistin© Chapel to worship
before th? sacrament exposed therein:
¦tliea he passed through the sala regia and
the Constantlne staircase into the porti
co of the basilica. He there seated him
self on a throne erected directly before
ihe holy door and with seats around for
the members of the Sacred College, the
chapter of St. Peter's and the papal court.
At the right of the throne stood Prince

function. . . .—„.>¦

The procession then proceeded^ tb«
Pope's face meanwhile illuminated by a
smile. At the chapel of the sacrament
there was another halt and his Holiness
left the eedan chair and prayed at the
altar. On re-entering the chair he was
carried to the chapel of St. Gregory,
where he officiated at mass, being as
sisted by Cardinals Macchi, Dl Pletro,
Segna and Vannutelli. Then all tha Car
dinals donned their silver capes and
white mitres and th« Pope was borne to
the throne amid renewed acclamations
and waving of handkerchiefs and bats.
Then was presented a magnificent pic
ture to which no pen could do justice.
The central figure was the venerable
Pontiff, seated on the throne. Two lines
of Cardinals clad In sliver and scarlet
reached to the high altar, with Its burden
of -burning candles and sacred vessels,
while around stood the papal guards, the
Pontifical court, monks and officials. The
cathedral was illuminated with twinkling
lights, while the marble columns and
walls rendered the color schema more
vivid. Overhead was the most magnifi
cent dome in the world, up to which
floated the harmony of the muclc.
From th« throne Pius X, surrounded
by his suite, walked to the -high altar.
standing over the crypt of St. Peter, into
which meanwhile Cardinal Macchi de
scended to pray. The altar was sur
mounted by a baldachlno supported by
four historic bronze pillars taken from
the Pantheon.
The appearance of the Pope in that
elevated position called for another
burst of enthusiasm. The Pore then
blessed the altar, and, after saying the
"Indulgentiagm" the maniple, a symbol
of the cord with whicli Christ was bound
on his capture, was placed, with great
ceremony, upon the Pope's arm. At the
same time prayers for the coronation were
recited by Cardinals Vannutelli, Mocennl,
Agliardi and Satolli.
Returning" 'from . the crypt Cardinal
Macchl placed upon the shoulders of the
Pope the Pontifical paJium and attached
It with three golden jeweled pins, say
ing; ¦•. ¦.-¦¦,
"Receive this sacred palium as a eym
bol of the fullness of the Pontifical office,
in honor of Almighty God. the xuost glor
ious Virgin Mary, his mother; the blessed

Mass was then celebrated with great
pomp and ceremony, the voice of the
Pope becoming gradually more firm until
It was even audible in the most distant
corner of the immense church.
Fallowing this Cardinal Macchl per
formed the rite of Incensing the Pope-,
whom he subsequently kissed three time*
on the cheek and chest, as did Cardinals
Eegna and Vannutelli.
On the Pope's return to the throne the
Cardinals offered their last obedience to
the . Pontiff, kissing- his hands and feet
and receiving embraces by him twice in
return. The bishops : and archbishops
kissed his foot and right knee, while the
abbots kissed only his foot The Holy
Father then walked to the shrine of St.
Peter for the culminating rites of the ex
tremely fatiguing ceremony. ' .
The whole Sacred College gathered about
the Pope, singing Palestrina's "Corona
Aurea Super Caput EJus," while the choir
burst forth Into song. Cardinal Macchl
then recited the Paternoster, and
offered the following prayer: :
Omnipotent and ever eternal God. dignitary
of the clergy and author of sovereignty, grant
thy servant. Plus X; grace to fruitfully govern
thy church so that he. who by thy clemency,
beccrnes and is crowned as father of kings
and rector of all the faithful, through thy wise
dispensation may govern well.
"Amen," rang out from all -corners of
the Cathedral, from the choir, the peo
ple, the clergy and the patricians.
Cardinal Deacon Segna then raised the
Pontiff's mitre and senior Cardinal Dea
con Macchl placed on the white head the
triple crown.
. At this moment the church was filled
with the ringing of bells, the blowing of
silver trumpets, the triumphant strains
of the choir and the acclamations of the
multitude, which could not be repressed.
When comparative silence had been re
stored Cardinal Macohi addressed the
Pope In Latin as follows:
Receive the tiara ornament, with three
crowns. Remember thou art father of princes
and kings ' the rector of the world, the vicar
on earth of our Savior, , Jesus Christ.
"Amen" again burst forth from the con
course. . .
Pope Pius X was. almost overcome and
had scarcely strength left to impart the
apostolic benediction. Cardinals Macchl
and Segna granted plenary indulgence to
all present and the procession then re
formed and left the basilica in the same
form as it came. :\- . ; : . \,
The Pope was -visibly fatigued and his
right hand shook as he raised ¦ It time
after tiiru* to bestow his blessin?.
When the ceremony was overall exits
to the basilica were opened and * within
less than an hour the hall was empty.
Strong as PJus X is physically he sup
ported the ordeal of his coronation to-day
perhaps with less fortitude than did Leo
XIII when he was crowned, although
-Leo was -merely -a shadow -of a man.
But he possessed will which nothing
could break. This evening when the Pon
tiff received the Duke of Parma he said
to him:
Not counting the election, to-day was the
most tremendous .experience of mjt life. I
must find a way to stop the noise In the
