Tkxaukasa, Ark., Feb. 22. Ed Coy,
tho negro rapist is dead. Ono week ago
ho assaulted tho young wife of a resiH't't
ublo farmer two miles bouth of town,
since which time ho has succeeded in
eluding tho oflicers until Sunday. Ho
has a mistress at the homo of Ed Gaines,
four miles north of town, and it was sho
who gave him away fear for tho
tafoty perliaps of horelf and family act
ing as the incentive.
Pobteb in m'uil'Ii of Coy suspected that
be wan being harbored by Gaines, and
two or threo times this week put a rojw
around Gaines' neck to make him give
information and assured him that death
would certainly be his portion should ho
fail to notify tho posse upon tho first ap
pearance of Coy.
The mistress of Coy went to the houso
of a white neighbor, "W. B. Scott, and
told him that Coy was at tho houso of
Gaines. Scott immediately sent ti mes
senger with the news post haste to town
and a posso immediately went out to ar
rest the negro.
In tho meantino Coy had left Gaines'
house, but was apprehended and taken
in chargo of by Mr. Scott and his two
sons, who held him until tho arrival of
the men from town.
The latter immediately brought their
prisoner in and placing him in a carriage
conveyed him to the Jewell farm, where
his victim without hesitation identified
him beyond all doubt as the man.
The trembling wretch was then re
turned to town and placed in a room with
a number of guards. A heavy guard
w;vs also placed outside the building, it
having been resolved that ho should not
be disponed of until all the posses that
were still out should return, in order
that they might take part in tho proceed
ings. All tho posses wero in by 2 o'clock and
the leaders, after a consultation, decided
to hang tho negro to a telegraph pole on
Broad street on tho state line, the most
public place in the city.
Coy was accordingly marched to this
point with a view to carry out this pro
gramme, but when tho crowd saw tho
rope and divined that hanging had been
decided upon there were thunders of pro
tests. "Away with the ropo! hanging is too
good for him! Burn him! burn him!"
was the shout that went up from 5000
Coy was quickly strapped to tho body
of a treo with iron fastenings and coal
oil was poured over his entire person in
liberal quantities. Theio was a moment
of silence, and then another shout went
up. It was:
"Let Mrs. Jewell apply tho match! Let
Mrs. Jewell set him off!"
Walking slowly ami very pale, but
collected, tho lady emerged irom tho
crowd. Her appearance before them set
the crowd fairly wild, and such a cheer
went up as almost shook the ground on
which they were standing.
Tho crowd fell back at her approach,
making a pathway for tho lady, who
leaning upon the arm of a male relative
ou either side walking unhesitatingly
forward to where the negro stood pin
ioned, struck a parlor match with her
own baud and with perfect deliberation
tired the negro's clothes in two places.
In a second the poor wretch was ono
mass of consuming flames, but even in
death his wonderful nerve, exhibited
ever since his arrest, never forsook him,
and wlulo sufftuing tortures of fiie ho ;
actually cullerifto tho men of tho assem- J
biy anti in clear voice requested them to
move back so that the ladies could see,
referring to the negio women, a largo
number of whom witnessed the execu
tion. Coy raado but little noise pending his
horrible death oxcept to groan and grunt,
and tlied in about twenty minutes after
tho application of tho torch. Ho died
denying his guilt, but theio is not a
shadow of a doubt as to his being tho
Rochestek, N. Y., Feb. 22. One of
the most daring express robberies in
the history of this section was porpo
trated on tho Central Hudson road near
Woodsport. This train carries immense
sums of money, one car being known as
the "money car. " containing specio from
tho United States tieasury for western
banks. The robber had been discovered
in tho oxpiess car by the conductor and
the lnttor had signalled tho engineer to
go ahead at full speed, but at Fort By
ron tho brakes weio set in an unaccount
able way and when the conductor went
to tho express car ho found signs of a
desperate struggle. Money packnges and
jewelry wero lying scattered about and
everything in the car was stained with
blood nnd the messenger, Mclnery, was
lying bleeding from several wounds and
almost unconscious. Tho robber wns no
whore to bo seen and wns supposed to
hao jumped and mudo good his escape.
The news had spread along tho lino by
this time and tho station at Lyons was
all alive. Among others in tho crowd
was a well-dressed yonng man wearing
gold eyeglasses nnd carrying a satchel
over his shoulder. Now it happened
that trainmen had noticed tho young
man at tho station at Syracuse before
tho train 'had started out and they had
not seen him since, and tho question,
what was he doing at Lyons? at onco
suggested itself. An attempt to arrest
him was made, but ho pulled two revolv
ers, held tho ciowd back and backed
across tho yard, jumped on an engine
standing by, i un the engineer and fire
man off, pulled the throttle, and started
west on ono of tho four tracks of tho
Central Hudson load. Conductor Leas
of tho express train uncoupled his engine
and started in pursuit on tho adjoining
trade. The express engino soon overtook
tho robber, who suddenly loversed his
engine and let his pursuers pnsn him,
pouring u perfect rain of pistol bullets
into tho cab as his pursuers went by.
Tho pursuers stopped nnd tho pursued
went ahead. Another artillery duel en
sued, a shotgun taking part this time.
No one was hurt in either battle. About
seven miles further on tho robber found
his steam going out of tho engine. He
dropped off at a cross road and startod
across tho country, going south. The
sheriff of Wayne county organized a
posse and started in pursuit. The runa
way was sighted about live miles south
of Newark in a swamp which proved to
be too full of water to be ienotrated and
tho fugitive took up his position behiud
a stone wall and faced his pursuers.
After some parley ho surrendered to
Deputy Sheriff Collins.
Ho gave the name of William Cross
and said Ira was from Now Mexico. He
admitted ho was the man who attempted
tho train robbery. Tho story of the at
tempt at robbery as far as it can be
gathered is this: Cross boarded tho train
when it pulled out of Syracuse anil
climbed on top of the express car. lh
was provided with a hooked rope. Fast
ening tho hook in the slight cornieo ol
tho roof on one side of the car, ho let
himself down on tho other and resteO
his toes on the ledge that runs across tin
car. Ho looked through the glass o!
tho sido door and saw the express mes
senger in front of one of tho safes, whicl
was open, making up his bills. Hi
smashed the glass with a lovolver, cov
ered the messenger and shouted to hin.
to hold up his hands. Instead of doing
so Mclnery reached for tho signal core
with ono hand and his revolver with the
other. A bullet smashed his hand, but
not before the signal had been given thai
aroused tho conductor. Then Melnorj
fired on tho robber and put a bulloi
through his coat. Then tho robber shoi
tho messenger twice, onco in tho rigid
leg and onco in the left leg. Ho climbed
into tho car and a desparate struggli
took place, which did not end until tin
train stopped for the first time ne.u
Eastport. It is evidont that the robbei
had climbed out oil tho cars and ro
