Va., Nov. 5.?Sur rounded 'by a thousand men anxious to lynch the two negroes held as suBDecta in the Rockhold outrage of Tuesday, the Improvised Jail here last night -was guarded by State troops. Feeling runs high anil every precaution was being taken to prevent the mob gaining possesion of the negroes. Who thoroughly frightened deny that they are guilty of beating Albert llockhold and tieing him up, robbing his home and mistreating his wife. Governor Glasscock arrived here yesterday In the hopes that he would he of assistance In preventing a lynching whicn accompanying him are Captain Boggs- and- Captain .femes 1. Pratt, of the adjutant generals office, at Clrarleston. The troops are member?, of Company A, of the cScond Infantry, of ; Sutton, under command of Captain [ Miller and they will early Friday morning act as escort to the suspected men in conveying them to Sutton, where they will be arraigned' for a- preliminary hearing. Another ser'ous s otubreak is expected at that time. d It had been the Intention to have * Mrs. Rockhold j, who has partially re- r covered, identify the tnen yesterday. 1 hut euch was not the case, and' Bhe t will hardly see the men till Friday j night. Cast night It was the opinion t of many that 'Rockhold wolad be t unable to state p(psiti velvet hat the men t were the ones who perpetrated the out- t rage with Charles Lewis, who was 3hot a down Wednesday, when an effort was t male to effect Ills arrest. Give Their Names. "The -men early remained sullen and: refused to talk the charge over with any one. I>ater as evidence of the strong feeling growing against tnem reached their Impromptu Jail, the town jail having ibeen a few weeks ago burned to the ground, they began to grow uneasy. Both denied their guilt and admitted their Identity as Frank and Wll'iam Johnson. Of the latter the authorities hr.ve learned practically nothing, while Frank Johnson, It has developed, resides near Suiton, where he has been a resident for the past three years. His wife visited him yesterday afternoon tor a short fine. Sever h^s feeling In ail this section been so aroused as it Is at present against the two negroes. The towns- c people ore being augmented by persons from the surrounding country. ? The governor arrived in Gassawny at 7:30 o'clock last evening, and went Immediately to tne Gassaway notei. As soon as he had finished supper he ' hastened to the office of Mayor Perkins, Where the negroes were confined. Pour deep, members of the militia are guarding the prisoners, . whose assumed indifference has g'ven place to craven fear since seeing the extreme precautions being taken to save them from death at the hands ol a mob of whites ami learning that one of the negroes who attacked Mrs. Rockhold was shot by a posse yesterday. No person is allowed to approach within speaking distance of the prisoners except on official business. The action of the governor has had the effect of establishing martiai law for the time being. Governor Glasscock several months ago announced Ills determination to stamp out lynching in this State. Defer Identification. Since yesterday morning whet, precautionary measures were adopted to prevent any interference with the courts of justice, the authorities have been acting under personal instruction from the governor. It was said last night that positive Identification signet and Educator Shoes for Boys' ROTECTED iTE GUARDS jf the negroes by Mrs. Rookhold had ?e?n purposely deferred for several lays In the belief that this will tend to decrease the danger of mob violence. Wllh difficulty enraged citizens were restrained from lynching Johnson and bis companion when It became known fate Wednesday night that the two. who were thought to be hiding in the mountains, had returned to Gassaway. It was a member of Ibelr own race. A.be Rati iff, who betrayed the pair. \ posse headed by CMef of Police Jharles 'Lewis, crossed the Elk river ind going to Johnson's house found Doth the men they wanted'. Neither Jffercd resistance. Threats of lynch OS were freely made but the authorises succeeded In prevailing upon the :rowd that surrounded the house to et the law take its course. Johnson ind 'his fellow prisoners were locked jp in the office of Mayor C. L?. Perkins ind placed, under a heavy guard, not jnly to prevent their escape, hut for heir own protection. Although there was talk of lynching, this did not :rystallze into action for lack of a eader. At a secret hearing yesterday ifternoon 'both Mr. and Mrs. Rockhold vere present. From the meagre relorts obtained neither expressed ablolute certainty that the two prisoners ire the ones wanted. Fearing the testimony at the hearng. If made public, might incite sumnary justice, all those present have efused to disclose Its nature. It was mnounced that hearing of further evllence would be postponed until to-day it 10 o'clock. This is believed by nany to be a ruse to allow the authorties to spirit the negroes to the couny Jail at Sutton, six miles aiwny. ComMiny A, of the national guard at Suton, was hasttily called out yesterday ifternoon. Should an effort be made o break through the guards and capure the negroes, many believe the iol(Jlers would not fire on their fellow ownsmen.

MEETINGS OF CENTRAL CHRISTIAN CHURCH ATTRACriNG ATTENTION?GLORYING IN THE CROSS SUBJECT TO-NIGHT. EvangeliBt 8alvely preached to a splendid audience last night. Rrv. Eddy and Rev, Broomfleld took pij'i In the service. Glorying In the Gross will be the subject of the sermon tonight. Mr. Senlff will sing another of ills effective solos. The evangelists and pastor feel that they have a mighty task on hand', but they realize thai no movement ever succeeded without a big job on hinds. The chter and vital danger In any movement Is that Its end may become smothered in Its means. It must have a great, challenging, sacrificial task. A banquet Is a good thing as a sp-ingboard. but not as a couch. As a church of Christian men and women we need a master passion for snnls.' The Christian whose sense of respon-l sibllity goes no farther than his own , soul has not aJvanced beyond the in-1 cubator stage of Christian life. God's | call Is a call not only for volunteers, but for recruiting officers. It Is also a call to help unite the scattered regiments of the gTeat army of on- Immortal King under the one banner that bears the Cross. "Christian unity must come at the foot of the cross." In these days the church is tinder fire ? n-w%A rtwiv Kv n union US X1CVC1 WCIWIC auu ??v ? ? of the various denominational regiments will tie church be rea<lv and able to meet these attacks upon her. At this very time the -magazines are spending their muck-raking activities on the churches. It is charged thct the churches tn doing nothing twi meet the groat scolal needs of to-day. But the fact Is that nearly all of the real philanthropic work of our limes Is being done by professed Christians, even though they are- working In so called secular organizations. Many organizations that the man of the market had the street calls secular,' such as the Y. Jrf.C.-A. and Social Settlements and are In reality the churches organized to work at a special task. The church is -relating herself to the problems of our times, for were it not for the church there would soon be no philanthropic work, just as there is none to-day in countries where Christianity !b not the current-religion. But a united church could do a hundred times more philanthropic work and carry -Christian philanthropy around; the world in this generation.

During the time -that the man * was trying -to get into the home j Mayor Hess was getting ready to take t him a prisoner. Just as the mayor ^ was ready to emerge frcrm his bouse the negro scooted across the lot and t tried the door of an adjoining neigh- t bor. Mayor Hess did not wait a too- j ment longer. He hurried over to < where the intruder was and- placed , hint under arrest. The mayor then j had to -hunt up the town Bergeant to get his prisoner in the.Bamaville jail. ] When the prisoner was safe behind t lock and key of the iBarnsvllle prison t Mayor Hess turned the negro over to t the county authorities. He came to t the city and notified the Prosecuting t attorney that in searching the mat) t he found a razor. This is an .offense e against the Johnson anti-pistol toting e law.
