LYNCHED AT SCRANTON
Negro Taken Off Train On Which He Was Being Taken to Co lumbia For Safe-Keeping. Florence, July -4.-The fast West Indian limited train on the Atlantic Coast Line was held up at Scranton Thursday evening. and a negro who was being taken to the penitentiary for safe-keeping taken off the train and lynched. The negro was Cairo Williams. who killed ThrLston 0. McGee, at Scranton. on the ;4th of February last. An effort was made to lynch the negro at the time of the murder but Sheriff Graham. of Williamsburg county. managed by strategy to get him to the penitentary. Williams was put on trial at the April term of court in Williamsburg county but Judge Purdy had ordered the case continued until this term of tht court. Williams was carried back to the penitentary and kept there un ti. Mond.y morning, when he was taken to Kingstree for trial. The case was called and tried. but the jury failed to agree and a mistrial was or dered. Thursday afternoon Sheriff Gra .ham deemed it advisable to send the negro to the penitentary again for safe-keeping. The news, however, reached Scranton and the lynching crowd soon got together and blacked their faces and got their masks in shape. They held up the local pas senger and searched it, but failed to find their man.. As the fast train ap proached the engineer was flagged down with a red flag. The crowd of twenty-five or more boarded the train, broke open the outside vestibule doors. shoved back Captain Charlie Gasque, who was in charge of the train, moved forward to the combina tion coach and found Williams in charge of Deputies Britton and Wheel er. They refused to give up their man when a scuffle ensued and Wil liams was taken. The affair lasted about three minutes. Williams was taken out and lynch ed. How Benjamin Charged. Attorney General W. A. Anderson, of Virginia. was in Washington the other day and met Judge Goode, who was a member of the Confederate Congress. They became reminiscent, says the Washington Post. The name of Judah P. Benjamin. once United States senator from Louisiana and afterward the Confederate Secre tary of War. was mentioned. Mr. Anderson remarked how he had heard Benjamin make, after the civil war, a remarkable legal argument before the English House of Lords. "He stood at the head of the English bar," said Mr. Anderson. "His suc cess in England w"as little short of wonderful." "'I used to have a little business with Mr. Benjamin while he was seL retary of war," replied Judge Gonde. "One day I had entered his offee, when he surprised me with a ques tion. "'You are a lawyer. Goode?' said he. "'What do you consider a large fee up in your region?" "'WVell up in the mountan:s a;'ound Bedford. where I come from. the lay. yer who gets $500 for handling a law case is reckoned lucky.' "Benjamin looked at me placidly,' and then added: 'Now. my practice has been this: If a client comes to my office I charge him a good re taner. If he comes around to bother me. T charge him a refresher. If he comes to have, some wo.rk dom on the case. I charge him a reminder, and when the case is concluded. I charge him a finisher.'" This rather astonished the young layer from Bedford. but the twvo gray old Virginians agreed that the incident was entirely characteristic of the man thdy were discussing. One of Uncle Joe's Yarns. Uncle Joe Cannon tells the tribu lations of a congressman from the west. out for re-election, whose wife craved social honors, says an ex change. It appears that if the statesman re ferred t.>, was a man of very plain habits, little given to the frivolties of the smart set. but in some way his spouse managedl to convince him that his re-election depended in a large measure upon his taking a more prominent part in "society." So the westernr energetically set about to meet his wife s vw:s. But it went hard with him. and. finally. he despaired of ever becomng any thing like a society man. "One day." said Mr. Cannon to a New York Times man. "he came to me in great distress. 'I'll be hanged if I'm not getting sick of it.' said he. 'Thw social game has got me goin' good for sure. But what makes me mad is that I should be trying to make good a bluff like this when I haven't mastered one of the funda mental ideas of the scheme.' " "And what is that fundamental idea?" I asked. " 'Simpiy this.' replied the candi date for re-election. "the fundament al idea in order to be a society man is. as I figure it. to be absolutely ri diculous in a man like me trying to make any one believe he is a society man. 'When I talk I have to stop eating. It's no use.' he added. de jectedly. -I'll never make a society The Tipping Tyranny. Xe,v York Tribune. Two energetic. hard-working little business women had finished their meagre luncheon at a restaurant. They were figuring out the amount of their checks. and decided that they owed '2o and 23 cents, respectively. "Are you going to give a tip?" the little one asked. 'Tm tempted not to." returned the other. "The nerve and impudence of these horrrid men waiter are becom ing unbearable." "I shall never, never, tip again," said the little one grimly. "Yesterday I was not hungry and my check came to 20 cents. I put down an extra nickel. At first Mr. Waiter seemed not to notice it. but as I was about to leave the table he said, most im pudently. 'Do you want this carfare bit; I don't.' I suppose he thought I would not take it back, but I did." "It was on Monday. I think. that I had my experience." said the other woman. "I asked the waiter to bring me small change for a dollar bili. He brought me four quarters. - 'Is that small enough for you' he sneered. " 'Yes. it's small enough for me,' I snapped back. 'but it isn't small enough for you to get a tip.' and I sailed out." A woman's idea of a wise man is one who makes a fool of himself over her. CHURCH NOTES.
