Fewer Lynchings Disturbed 1904 Than for a Long Time—Legal Hangings Also Sh >w a Decrease. Chicago, Jan. 3. —One of the most interesting features in a re view of the year is the fact that there were fewer lynchings than in any previous year since 1885. There was a marked falling off in the aggregate of donations for educational, philanthropic and religious purposes. There was a decrease in the number of legal hangings in the total of defalcations, forgeries and bank wreckings, and in the number of homicides. Fire losses show a small in crease. In a general business, manufacturing and commercial way the latter half of the year was a decided improvement over the first six months. Lynchings for the year num ber 87, as compared with 104 the previous year, 96 in 1902 and 135 in 1901. November was the one month in twenty years during which no lynching was reported, north or south.

Parker, proprietor of the ; Palace Jewelry Store at New i port, which was burglarized Christmas eve, arrived in Jones boro Tuesday morning, says the j Sun, and identified the jewelry captured with the negroes Floyd | and Blanche Carr and Luther Jones yesterday as that stolen. He had with him a photograph of the window taken before it was br.ken. It showed the watches, brooches, etc., display ed in the window. The value of the goods stolen he said was $350. The search for the jewelry was continued today and some other pieces found. It appears that the negroes gave away some of it, appearing to have no idea of its value. Mr. Parker says that probably $50 worth of it has been recovered. Luther Crabtree, one of the negroes charged with having se creted the stolen property, was bound over by Justice Hatcher today.
