One is the summary of the roll for 1902. which was the last assessment taken before he took the office. It Is based on a one-third valuation, while the other is a summary of the 1909 assessment and i based on the actual market value. His reports show the wealth of this county to have almost trebled In the past eight years. One of the remarkable things about the comparison is the showing that even In the cities and towns there has been an increase In the value of town anj city lots and tne improvements on these of more than a million dol lars s. nee 1902. But it is in the Increase in the number of acres of tillable land and the placing on the tax rolls by home stead, timber claims, etc.. of thou sands of acres of non-tillable land . . . . that has caused the ereatest increase A stubborn fight to save him was a l" " PU."C "'l in wealth.

Xov. 12. Will James, the negro suspected of being the mur derer of Miss Annie Pelley, was killed here last night by a mob. James was Btrung up to a public arch and when the rope broke at least B Shots were fired Into his body. He made a partial confession and Implicated another ne. gro, Arthur Alexander, for Whom the mob is now searching. James was lynched In the most prominent square of the city and hung to the arch at Eighth and Commercial streets. Women were the first to -pull the rope. When It broke, the frenzy of the mob was uncontrollable and .volley after volley was fired Into the body, shooting It to pieces. The mob then dragged the body over the streets for more than a 'mile to tne scene or the murder where it was burned. At least 18,000 people witnessed the lynching. James was found with Kherirr Davis between Kor nak, III., and Dalnap, by the crowd rrom Cairo. Officers Are Overpowered. The orTleers were overpowered, the negro captured and after a oonferenoe it was decided to bring him to Cairo and lynch him here. Fully 1,000 people went in search of the ncfrro. Wlien they returned they were met by a howling mob of at least 5,00 more. They marched direct to the arch, sweeping everything before them. Many women wore out to help do the work. Sheriff Davis pleaded for the lire of the negro, but without avail, and wken Cairo was reached Dnvis was taken In charge by a part of the mob, while the rest rosluid the negro to the scene of action. When fmnid by the mob the negro sided and a short religious service for tne benefit of Salnncr's soul was held, after which he was strung up. the rope being placed over a telegraph pole at 21st and Washington -streets. Mob Is Merrllr-. The mob found some difficulty In breaking the cage, a e . . steel struc ture, but after a half htiur or ham mering the door gave way and Salz ner was taken out. The mOb dragged Salr.ner to Washington avenue and 21st street, adjoining the public square. Salxner cried and begged ptteouAly for his life, and his appeals were met with cries and blows from the mob. When Salzner was asXod Tor his last statement, a stranger In the crowd steppeil forward and said he believed Snlzner was Innocent, wherenpon the mob fell upon him and kicked ami struck him and finally knocked him down. It was by hard work ttiat the cooler heads of the mob saved his life. He was compelled to beg or mercy, nnd rinally cried out In a loud voice that Salzner should be lynched, after which he was driven from the ob. Attention was then given sahsner, who begged for mercy and mumbled that his sisters had killed his wife, at which .the mob clamored for his execution. After Salzner was hanged and while the body was being riddled wiiUh bullets tke rope broke and the body fell to the ground, where it now lies close to the' money power printed page and a hall article to show that extreme.
