GREETED WITH WILD
Wilmington, Del., June 20. Hast
night a mob ugly in-temper and ap
parently ripe for violence was In full
possession of Market street in front
of the police station and for a square
or more on each side of it.
In the station was confined the In
diana showman, A*nuir Corwell, who
was arrested Tuesday afternoon on a
charge of murder In having partici
pated In the lynching of the negro
murderer White on Monday night.
The rumor spread about town yester
day afternoon that Corwell would be
taken before Coroner Mc'Cormiok at
the inquest to be held over the hand
ful of charred bones which is all that
is loft of the negro ravish er and mur
derer. This was what brought the
crowd to the police station. It began
to gather as early as 7 o'clock, and in
less than an hour was a tumultuous,
threatening mob of thousands. The
street in front of the station was
So Densely Haced
that street cars were brought to a
standstill or made their way along at
a snail's pace. To have attempted to
remove Corwell would have been
sheer madness. He would have been
snatched from his guard In a twink
ling and borne off in triumph on the
shoulders of the mob.
ft was not that the mob was Con
vinced of Corwell's innocence Hint it
wished to rescue him. Ii was rather
because it is believed or hoped that
he had participated in the lynching.

The mob made no threats. Probably
a largo percentage of it was made up
of mere curiosity, but It was Jogged
and showed no signs of dispersing.
Meantime the coroner's Inquest went
on, and a verdict was reached 'hat the
negro had come to his deafn at the
hands of persons unknown.
The instant this verdict was ren
dered City Solicitor Reinhardt started
for the police station whore the mob
was assembled. By terrific exertion
he forced his way up the station build
ing steps and there announced the
verdict to the mob. which greeted the
news with wild cheers. This verdict
gave Attorney General Ward the op
portunity to do what a number of
people alarmed at the situation were
urging him to do, and that was to re

done. A Manor dealer rjromntlv fur-
