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.
