ONE NEGRO SAVED FROM A MOB
BY A BRAVE GEORGIA SHERIFF •Carrolton. Ga.. June S—The nerve of a Georgia sheriff. Jogejib Morrill, to day upheld the law of the state and paved the life of a negro from a mob. In protecting the negro, who was saved from the gallows only a few hours be fore through the efforts of his lawyers, ■one life was lost and two men were wounded. The arrival of the state mi litia averted threatened trouble lust night and at D o'clock a special train hearing the negro, whose crime was the murder of a little white boy whom he found fishing alone, was speeding to ward Atlanta under guard. The man killed hi attacking the jail was O«*orge Bennett of Carrolton, and the wounded men are Thomas Smith, a citizen of Carrolton. and an uukowu man, presumably a farmer. Thomas S. Word, father of the mtir •dered boy, who was in the front rank of the would-be lynchers, was not hit. After Bennett fell Mr. Word jumped upon a window sill and exclaimed dra matically: ~Shoot me. Mr. Sheriff; I would as soon die now ns any time.” Only nine shots were fired and the walls of the Jail show the marks of the bullets. None of the sheriff's posse was hit. Williams, the negro who caused the trouble, wns tried and found guilty of murdering Otis Word Jnnunry 1. 1001. and sentenced to be hanged yesterday. He was only yesterday refused a new trial, but his attorneys filed a bill of exceptions anil carried the case to the Supreme Court. A large crowd of people had come to town to witness the hanging, and when It was learned that an appeal had been taken to the Supreme Court, delaying the execution, there wns much excited talk, which crystallized soon after in the formation of a mob. At noon the mob made an assault on the jail. They battered down the outside door, despite the warning of the sheriff, and entered the building. They made a demand on the sheriff, MATCHLESS MINE SAVED TO MRS. TABOR BY A KIND FRIEND I>«*nvcr. Juno 8.-Tlie heroic struggle of Mrs. H. A. W. Tabor to save soim*- thlng for herself ami children from the wreck of her husband's fortune has at last been crowned with success. The Matchless mine, the famous Leadville property, from which Senator Tabor extracted $2,000,000. the money with which he constructed the Talior opera house and Tabor block, has been taken out of the hands of the mortgagers and will bo operated under the man agement of Samuel Belford as trustee. An unknown friend of the dead sen ator lias advanced the necessary funds hind while Mr. Belford will hold title to the property as trustee, a very hand some share of the proceeds will lie credited to the bank account of Mrs. Tabor. In 1804 the senator mortgaged the property to William H. Everett and ex ecuted a lease to the Itansom Leasing company. Before the mortgage Im*- caine due In 1800 Everett sold Ills In terests to W. It. Harp of the Union Coni Company of this city, James W. Newell and Warren P. Page of Lead ville. They also owned the lease ami operated the property, and consented to extend the mortgage three years and npply the royalties paid under the lease on the notes. Last year they brought foreclosure proceedings in the District OVmrt of Lake county and Judge Owers ordered an accounting. It wjis found that $12,400 was still due and the court ordered the mine sold to satisfy that claim. Under the law the senator's heirs had six months in which to redeem, and creditors who had secured Judg ments might intervene for nine months. Mrs. Tabor defaulted in her rights and then her unknown friend secured the services of Samuel Belford and his father, ex-Cougressman James B. Bel MR. WALSH DENIES REPORTED INTERVIEW Denver, June o.—" The report that has gone abroad relative to the possi bility that President McKinley and McKinley might come to Colo rado and be my guests during tin* summer, is entirely erroneous,” said Thomas F. Walsh to a Denver re porter. •*1 did say to a newspaper man that I was sure Mr. McKinley greatly re gretted ids inability to visit Colorado according to the original plan of the itinerary, and that I had no doubt that some time liefore th'e close of his administration the President would make an effort to pay to Colorado the visit now abandoned, and that, In such an event. I would be delighted to en tertain the President "I did not say. either, that Mrs. Mc- Kinley. as soon as she had sufficiently recovered here strength, would come to Colorado for the summer for the re cuperation of her liealtli. My remark on that subject was to the effect that while Mrs. McKinley was ill in San Francisco it was suggested that she spend the summer in our state, it be ing considered at that time the locality most favorable to her recovery. Ilad she come, we would, of eotirsv. have done all in our power to render her stay comfortable and pleasant. It was later decided, however, that it would be l>est for her to return at once to Washington, and I have heard nothing of it. if she lias any present intention of coming to Colorado.” SCOTLAND ACCEPTS CARNEGIE'S BIG GIFT London, June B.—Andrew Corn epic signed a deed yesterday transferring $10,090,000 in live per cent. United •States Steel Corporation bonds to trustees for the benefit of the univer sities of Scotland. The amount be comes immediately available. Thu next for the key to the negro’s cell, but were refused. With the refusal they began their advance upon the sheriff and the few deputies he had been able to sum mon to his aid. They were told to stop or they would be tired on, but the or .der was not obeyed. As they advanced down the corridor toward the sheriff the order was given to lire. Bennett fell, dying almost in stantly. Thomas Word, the father of Williams' victim, was In the front ranks of the mob. The unexpect ed light of the sheriff and his little posse frightened the mob, and they re treated outside the Jail. Here they broke and ran and were soon divided Into little groups, discussing the event. Sheriff Morrill at once consulted Judge Harris, of the County Court, ami it was decided to call upon Governor Candler for uid. The governor was communicated with by telephone, aud said he would semi two companies from Atlanta as soon as they could be assembled. Duriug the afternoon the mob tele phoned the situation to friends in the adjoining towns of Villa Rica and Temple, and made an appeal for more men to get possession of the negro. This was communicated also to Gover nor Candler, and the governor soon wired a proclamation to the people of the county. It was rend from the steps of the court house at 4 o’clock by the mayor. The governor commanded the people to disperse, and said the entire military and civil forces of the state would be used to enforce the order, if necessary. The rending of the proclamation appar ently had a good effect, as many people were seen to mount their horses and leave town. Much apprehension was felt for the night, ami the sheriff ami city and county officials, after a con sultation. decided to take the prisoner out of the county for safe keeping. The Atlanta militia arrived about 0 o’clock and one hour later escorted the negro and Sheriff Morrill to the train for Atlanta. ford, and through thorn purchnsod the only outstanding judgment against Ta bor which could bo used in repurchas ing tile Matchless. This judgment hm! been secured against the Talnir Minos and Milling Company by Fred Ilass in the United States Circuit Court. When Messrs. Nowell. Page and Harp learned that Mr. Belford had secured the Hass judgment they agreed to transfer to him the rights they had secured un der the sale on account of the fore closure. The papers consummating tlds deal were placed on file in Lead vilie yesterday. If no legal complica tions intervene Mr. Belford will secure a sheriff's deed to the property July nth and the development of the mine will be pushed. Former Congressman Belford last night refused to disclose the name of the one who had come forward to as sist Mrs. Tabor. ••He is the noblest man in the state,” said Mr. Belford, "and with a modesty which is characteristic of him. he wishes to conceal his Identity from the public. “We expect to sink the shaft 2,000 feet, if necessary, and believe that we will uncover bodies of ore which will rival in richness anything worked by the senator. My son will have com plete charge of the property and Mrs. Talior will be handsomely cared for. No. I will not state what share of the profits she will receive. Of course, there may be no profits, lint if there an* none she will not be the loser. If the speculation pans out as well as we expect we may be able to repay her generous benefactor.

The deed contains a preamble, saying that Mr. Carnegie, having retired from active business, deems it to Im* his duty and one of his highest privileges to ad minister the wealth which has come to him as a trustee in behalf of others, entertaining the confident belief that one of the best means of discharging that trust is providing funds for spreading and improving the opportun ities for scientific research of the uni versities of Scotland, his native laud, and by rendering the attendance eas ier.

This timber is represented to have l»oen killed by a forest tire, several years ago. Inas much a- it appears to be rapidly de teriorating in value and quantity and is a menace to the surrounding timber, It is thought IK*st to encourage Its dis posal, as its removal will tend to pro mote the better growth of surround ing trees For these reasons Commis sioner Hermann has directed that such portions as are sound enough for com mercial purpose shall Is* sold, without advertisement, for one dollar per thou sand feet, and that such timber as is useful for firewood shall Ik* sold for 15 cents per cord.

EPISCOPALIANS DISCUSS OAKES HOME AND FINANCES Denver, June 7.—The deficit In funds and other money matters wor ried the Episcopal Council at Its ses sion yesterday. The finance committee began It by recommending that the unimproved real estate of Jarvis hall, held In trust for endowment purposes, be sold and the money so obtained put into real estate that would bring In some reve nue. The estate had produced a de ficit, mainly through taxes. It was finally decided that the council recom mend the change. Bishop Spaudling has been the principal sufferer through the deficit in that only a portion of Ids salary had been paid. This brought up the question of the deficit In the episcopate funds. Benja min Brewster, chairman of the finance committee, said: "Bishop Spauld ing should have his full salary of SO,- 000 a year, to which he Is entitled. This year we only secured $4,500. which we have paid to the bishop. He took it and in giving us his receipt, also handed us a release to all the back sal ary due him, being the sum of $15,- OOO.” This announcement quieted the coun cil considerably, and a motion was made to Inquire into the Impairment of the funds, which was explained by Chairman Brewster in the afternoon. It seemed to be the opinion of some of the laymen, nnd the clergy as well, that if they paid the columns, they should not lx* asked to contribute to tin* bishop's salary. The coupon fund being an amount which was fixed by Bishop Spaulding himself. and through the fixing of It nnd promises to pay. the church secured n gift amounting to $1!0,<>00 in real estate, half of which had been sold for $lO,- 000. The matter was finally settled SECRETARY OF WAR WILL RULE IN THE PHILIPPINE ISLANDS Washington, Juno 7.—The now civil J government to he established In the j Philippines is receiving the considers- j tion of the President and the secretary i of war.

This government will have control of all civil affairs, hut it will ho under the war power to the extent of being direct ed by the secretary of war. There will be a nice distinction as to the authority of tlie general comma tiding the troops in tlie Philippines and the governor to be appointed under the civil govern ment. No official declaration lias been made as to which will be tlie supreme authority, but it is known that the sec retary of war will l»e supreme.

C., June G.—Senator Tillman, protest Ini; against the gover ! nor's right to reject the senatorial | resignations, last night withdrew his resignation. In his letter to Governor McSweeney, Senator Tillman says: •*I have Senator Mcßaurln’s com munication. in which he graciously consents, at your request, ‘to hold on lo Ids commission as United States senator, and continue to serve the stnte as he has done In the past, to the best of his ability.’ “This leaves me one of three alterna tives: To appeal to the Democratic ex ecutive committee to take the matter up and determine wliat the best Inter ests of the party requires to be done; to appeal to the Senate itself to deter mine whether a resignation from that body to take effect at some future time is binding, or withdraw my own resignation. "I have already said I had no mo tive or purpose in resigning except to force McLnurin’s resignation, and there is nothing for me to do but to no- 1 cejit the situation and withdraw my i own resignation, if it be lawful for me | to do so.” Governor McSweeney wrote a caus tic letter in reply, saying, among other things: “Ifail you rend carefully my letter addressed to you and to Senator Mc- L/nurin, you must have seen that I did ! not express any desire to compel a j member of the United States Senate to hold ids commission and exercise the functions of that office if he chose to surrender it. "If you still wish to resign your commission, and will send to tills olllce an unconditional resignation, I will ex ercise the authority and power vested in me by the people.” State Normal ('oinmriir«ment.

June C.—(Den ver News Special)—George Fether stone and Arthur Taylor, lwth aged ten, were on trial in the District Court Wednesday on the charge of wrecking a Midland Terminal passenger train between Goldfield and Victor and at tempting to wreck a Florence & Cripple Creek train. The judge in structed the jury to bring in a verdict of not guilty. In the opinion of the court the boys had already been pun ished enough. by referring the question to the coin* mittee on legislation to sec liow it cnrnc that certain churches were ex empt from contributions to the epis copate fund. There has been some talk that the Oakes Home for Consumptives Is not a charitable Institution. The county commissioners remitted the taxes on the grounds that the home was organ ised for purely charitable purposes. It was said the institution was money-making, as It charges for treat ment and board. The committee on the state of the church made Its rei>ort, disposing of the question In one short paragraph, as follows: "Your committee, having been re quested to ascertain the status of the home as related to the church, we re spectfully state that the home Is deoil ed to the bishop and the chapter in trust as a home for consumptives, the ltev.

Caldwell, correspondent of the Den ver News, telegraphs that the $300,- O<K) Eaton beet sugar factory Is prac tically tin accomplished fact. The foundations of the buildings will l>e laid this year and the factory Itself In full operation next year. The site selected for the factory is in the Eaton suburbs convenient to the railroad track and de|>ot and so situated that the factory drainage will have an ex haustive natural outlet down a deep drain or gulch—a fact which gives the town or Eaton a clean bill of health as regards factory operations.
