CONFESSING A CONSPIRACY.
What the Arrest of a Notorious Criminal Led To. Warrenton, Ga., March 18.—Several nights ago, in Lincoln county, the house of a highly respectable citizen, who was absent at the time, was entered by a burly black negro, who attempted to assault a lady. Wrenching herself from his grasp, she snatched up her babe and escaped in the darkness, having to go through half a mile of swamp to reach the house of a neighbor, where an alarm was given. The wife had not more than gone away when the hus band, with a neighbor, entered the front door to see a negro make his exit through the rear. Thoy started in pursuit of him, and after a sharp race overtook him, when a fearful strugglo took place. Finally the men bound the negro and took him to Lin coln jail, where he was recognized as the notorious Jack Henderson, who is popularly credited with many crimes. The excite ment following this event was intense and a movement to lynch Henderson was organ ized, in which blacks as well as whites were concerned. So threatening did the movement become that Sheriff Long organized a strong posse to guard the jail, and with all expediency possible moved the prisoner to the jail in Wilkes county, where he would have greater security. Prominent among those who ad vocated lynching was George P. Murphy. As soon as that fact became known to Hen derson he confessed to a conspiracy that ex plains a case of arson which was a sensation two years ago. For this crime Mr. Blan chard, one of the best citizens of the county, was arraigned on the testimony of Jack Henderson, George P. Murphy and J. N. Tarver, a white man. So high was Blan chard’s standing that, notwithstanding the positive assertions of these men, the people still had full confidence in his innocence. Now Henderson confesses that the whole thing was a conspiracy. Warrants were at one® issued for Tarver and Murphy on the charge of subordination of perjury. Traver was arrested and put under $2,000 bonds, failing to give which he now languishes in jail. Murphy made his escape, but officers are after him. ARCHBISHOP GIBBONS Baltimore, March 17.—Archbishop Gib bons made an address at the cathedral yes terday for the first time since his return from Rome. In tho course of his remarks he referred to Pope Leo XIII., and said that he had been favored with three interviews with the holy father, and that no one could spend half an hour in his presence without thanking God for granting the church so great and good a pontiff. “In my first in terview,” continued the archbishop, he re marked to me, ‘I don’t like harsh and severe measures; I dislike Anathemas, and prefer to address myfelf to the intelligence and head of the world; as vicar of Christ I desire to draw all souls more closely to one common master; I am a debtor to all the churches, and I have esspecial solicitude for the church of your own great and beloved country, whose spiritual progress gives me such con solation.’ Notwithstanding his advanced age ana ins aencate trame, the pope is inde fatigable in his labors, and sometimes while the city is buried in sleep the aged pontiff continues his labors alone until midnight.” , Referring to the conferences, the arch bishop said they were characterized by ample freedom of discussion, joined with perfect harmony and good feeling. They discussed the higher education of the clergy, especially in physical sciences; the improved education of the laity, and the sanctity of Christian marriage, which is assailed in our country' by Mormonism on the one hand and the fatal facility of divorce on the other. Tlie Keely machine FInlulied. Philadelphia, March 18.—“The time is not far distant now,” says Secretary Schue'.l erman, of the Keely Motor company, “when our faith in Mr. Keely will be amply repaid. We have not waited in vain. The motor is . practically completed—that is to say, all the machinery is finished, and nothing remains but to put it together. Beforo this can be done all the various parts must be carefully tested. A week or two will be required to put the machine in motion. If everything goes on all right the board of directors, at its next general meeting, will fix a date for a private exhibition of the motor for their own benefit. If this exhibition proves satis factory—and there is no doubt that it will— a large lot, capable of accommodating 400 or • 500 persons, will be secured near Mr. Koely’s shop, and a second exhibition given for the edification of the stockholders. After that a series of public exhibitions will bo given.” Mr. Keely has discharged all his employes and declares that his motor is practically • completed, nothing remaining to be done but to adjust it.
