BURNED AT THE STAKE Was Taken to the Scene of the Crime and Confessed There That He Assaulted the Girl. Wilmington, Del., June 22. A north ern mob, led by a Virginian, burned a ne gro at the stake tonight within a mile of Mason and Dixon's line. The victim was Georee White, a negro, just out of the work house, who was accused of having feloniously assaulted and stabbed to death Miss Helen S. Bishop, the 17-year-old daughter of the Rev. E. A. Bishop. The crime was committed last Monday after noon and ever since then there has been muttering of lynching the man. An ef fort was made last night to get White but it failed. Tonight, however, a mob that was estimated at lour thousand men ' and hoys gathered in the neighborhood of Trice's Corner. The police and the con stables tried to disperse the growing crowd, but without avail. The chief war den of the workhouse and his guards, who have been on constant duty since the ne gro was landed In the jail had been warn ed of the corning of the mob and prepared to defend the man at all costs. With a battery of railroad ties the mob soon carried away the great outer door of the work house. The second, third and fourth doers were quickly battered down. Then the would-be lynchers were momen tarily hatted by a hail of bullets from the inside. A great howl went up from the leaders but they were pressed forward by those in the rear. In the fusilade that fol lowed four persons fell, all members of the mot). They were quickly carried to the rear. The tire hose was then turned cm the crowd. This also held the mob for a time but not long. A general rush was made, the guards were brushed aside and a mau hunt of the jil was made for the neyro. His cell door was battered open and the toweling, accused man, begging for mercy was uragued Irom the cell and prison. At tempts were mad9 to shoot White ou the spot but the leaders of the crowd would have nothing but his life at the ,-take. Ke sitence on the part of the negro was use less, both hands were tied behind him, then the march to the place of execution was taken up. The negro was led to a'mt the very spot where the assault took place. He was given a la.st chance to speak and he confessed to the murder of the girl. A stake had been arranged by an advance guard. W hite was quickly chained to the post and the dry underbrush soaked w it!) oil was ignited. White, suffering Intense ag)iiy, fainted and his body hung limp. Miots were tired into his hotly and the vic tim of the mob was soon dead. Satisfied with Us night's work the lynch ers left the neighborhood many fearing ar rest. The failure of the county court to give White a speedy trial is in a great measure responsible for tonight's tragedy. The citizens of Wilmington and those in the vicinity of the crime wanted immedi ate trial and Attorney-General H. II, Ward laid the matter beforte the court on Thursday with that end in view. The court, however, did not consider haste as Important and the trial was set for the September term of court. With this de cision of the court the murmuring of mob violence became louder and the indigna tion of the people grew hourly. The coroner's inquest was held today. The verdict of the jury was that Miss Bishop came to her death "from the ef fects of an assault committed upon her by one George Whit, a negro." The crime for which White was lynched was one of the most revolting In the criminal annals of Delaware. The vic tim, Miss llelen-S. Bishop, daughter of Kev. 15. A, Bishop, was 17 years old, and was a student of the Wilmington high school. While on her way home from school last Monday afternoon she was at tacked. A farmer on his way home later saw a young woman ' crawling (ui hands and knees In the road. When the farmer reached the girl she was unconscious with three ugly gashes- in her throat, her body was badly scratched and her clothing was torn in many places. In one hand she clutched a small pen knife. There was every evidence that Miss Bishop had made a desperate resistance in defense of her honor and her life. The wounded girl was taken home and died the next aitern oon without regaining consciousness. Suspicion was soon fastened on White who was just out of the workhouse. White was found In bed that same night and and when taken Into custody denied all knowledge of the crime. Me was identified by several persons who said they saw him in the vicinity. On Sunday evening Rev. R, A. Elwood preached a sensational sermon in the Oli vet Presbyterian church of Wilmington, entitled "Should the Murderer of Miss Brooks be Lynched." His sermon so stinel thej community as to cause Kev. E. A. Bishop, father of the murdered girl, to issue a letter last night, begging the people to permit the law to take its course and to do nothing rash. The Kev. E, A. Bishop was formerly principal of the Montpelier Seminary and many people in this vicinity remember Miss Bishop as a bright child about eight years old when she left Montpelier, where she was born.

But Thev Will Ray of the Next Flauaable Stranger. Brattleboro, June 22. Several of the townsmen are stilt awaiting the return to Brattleboro of two plausible-tongued for eigners who, a month or so ago, personal ly followed up cleverly worded announce ments In which the recipients were told of remarkable offers of fine silks ana laces rescued from a well known English ship, which, with most of its cargo, consigned to a New York firm, had gone to the bot tom. The men exhibited handsome sam ple silk stoeklngs and costly laces for or ders at ruinously low prices, and incident ally showed woolen dress patterns, which they sold for a good living profit, with the assurance that branch tailoring establish ments were soon to be established in this and other cities by one of the leading En glish houses, and where the goods would be reasonably made up. The silk and lace bargains are dreams of the past, but many yards of woolen goods of the aver age quality await the arrival of English tailors. , LEAGUE EASE BALL.

Mr. liui Explain. To the Editor of the Barre Daily Times, Dear Sir: Will you allow me a little space in your valuable paper to explain to the public the trouble w hich I had Satur day with Joseph Sassi, as I felt before I saw his letter in the paper that I was badly treated in the matter, I do more so now. In the first place I am no fighting man and was never mixed up In any such trou ble before. We paid Sassi all he was to us, $3.00 a day. He was dissatisfied and wanted more. I told him we could not give that to him. He got angry and called me all kinds of names, which you would not print. I told him to leave my ottice. He used more bad names to me. I told hira I would not stand that, and put him out. I took hini by the arm to push him out.when he struck me. I did push him out and did not strike him at all. When he was out he took up a big stone and tried to strike me, I got the door closed. The stone struck and broke my door bad; if it had struck me It might have killed me. I then went to my telephone and called the police to protect me and our property. Then they came and arrested me for a breach of the peace and insisted on roe to pay my hue, which 1 would not do. They would not let me go unless I pay my fine or get some good citizen to give bonds for $00.00, even when I told them 1 bad plenty of witnesses. They wanted the fine bad. But the bond keep me from running away and leaving my business. I could give lots of bonds from people I do business with, they know me to be no fighting man and do good business. Then Sassi calls the grievance commit tee, and gets one little stone which he had finished figured. It was a very good pat tern when it came - from the quarry, and was held by them to prove that he was worth more money than we had paid him. But there is a large stone which he was working on, and was not finished which would have gone to prove, If it could have been taken into account, that we were pay ing him all he was worth. But we are not familiar enough with the rules govern ing the grievance committee's rulings to know that partly finished stones were ruled out, and Sassi refused to finish It. We have no trouble with our men and never had the committee before. These, Mr. Editor, are the whole facts in the case, most of which I have already proven to the city officials concerned Stephen Rizzi. EX-TELLER ARRESTED H. J. Hill of Defunct Vergennes Bank IS TAKEN INTO CUSTODY Charged With Croocked Bookkeeping in That He Recharged Checks of Lieut.-Gov. Allen. Rutland. June 22. Howard J. Hill, former teller of the defunct Farmers' Na tional bank of Vergennes was arrested at Bristol today by Deputy United States Marsha! Frank Chapman on a charge of abstracting funds from the bank. lie was brought to this city tonight and arraigned before United States Commissioner James A. Merrill. The proceedings were purely formal and the hearing was immediately continued nntil next Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock. Hill's bail was fixed at $20,- ood, watch was lurnisnea by his father. The federal officers are very reticent about discussing the ease. The charges against him are similar to those brought against Cashier 1). II. Lewis and his clerk, J. W. Ketcham, both of whom are now serving sentences. The Indictment of Hill was made by the federal grand jury at its recent session In Windsor, where individual stockholders of the bank appeared before it to press claims that it is alleged had not been presented to the grand jury by the United States dis trict attorney. The charges against I T III include re charges of checks of former Lieut.-Gov. M. V. Allen of North Ferrlsburgh and of Joseph Quinlan. The recharges alleged were made during 109 and 1000. It is aliened that the numerous cash balances taken by Teller Hill between August, 1'..)S, and January, 1001, not one was le gitimately taken but every one forced. CLASS DAY EXERCISES.

The day was an ideal one with a cool breeze and lots of sunshine and "Old Goddard" was a lively scene, students or former graduates hurrying here and there to grasp the hands of parents or old class mates, teachers welcoming their beloved scholars of former years back again to Goddard's halls, all making a most pleas ant and joyous spectacle.

MAUD' LYDIA GRAY, Class Historian, stage was very prettily' decorated with ferns, evergreen and red roses, the class tlower. On the wall back of the stage was hung the class blue and gray tlag and the class motto, "The future Crowns the Past," in white letters on a shield. The juniors, a large class of nineteen members, marched in first aud were seated in the front row of seats followed by the seniors. On the stage was the class ora tor, Karl L. Waterman, and the class pres ident, Perley liuchauau, who announced the programme, liertha A. Tierney opened the exercises with a piauo solo, '-Valse Caprice,'' by Rubinstein, which she ren dered in excellent stvle. Prayer was of fered by Rev. Pifie K. M. Jones. "Incentives to Action." was the Inter esting subject of the oratiou by the class orator, Earl L. Waterman, which was es pecially well written aud delivered in an intelligent manner. Mr. Waterman said In part: "The in centive seems to take away the disa greeable features of toil, and uuikes work to the man, what play Is to the child a source of 1oy." "Incentives abound" he said. -"From the many let us consider three of the most worthy, patriotism, phi lanthropy and the thirst for truth. Incen tives are most potent when something cherished is in peril. Times of danger furnish great incentives. At such times the incentive comes, and the man quick to see his opportunity and to improve it ren ders grateful service to his fellows, be comes famous and leaves on the pages of history a record which shall furui.sh in centives to future generations." "There seems little need" he said in closing, "to speak of incentives to the student in school. His environment is stimulating. He through his books lives in au atmos phere of good thoughts and eiiobUug exam ples. Anxious parents, patient teachers, aud applauding mates are his powerful incen tives. 'Tis natural that he respond to his utmost to their expectations." j "But when we shall have gone forth from the fostering care of school aud home, when the cares of mature years shall make their elaims upon us; let us seek through constant companionship of books and nature, to keep fresh in our hearts these incentives which, in all ages, have adorned the banners of the vanguard of civilization, the incentives boru of patriotism, of philanthropy and of the thirst for truth." Klate M. Holt of South Woodstock, ad dressed the juniors and gave them lots of weighty advice and admonition. His ad dress was well written and was full of witty and pleasing thoughts. In closing he said, "When in the rank of seniorship you must be dignified but do not be so puffed up with your senior dignity that you will not consider the little things of everyday life beneath you. Those little things which help to make or mar the school, consider them and weigh them well." Mark A. Davis of Marshfield next ren- v i dered a vocal solo, selected, in his usual ilch ami pleasing voice. Tl poem written and recited by Mabel Roben of South Barre was very good, con taining many bf-autiful thoughts and she recited it in a very pleasing way. The class history by Maude L. Gray of Plainfield was a well written story of the many experiences of the class since it or ganized and contained many sharp hits at many of the members of the class. G. Richard Grant of Randolph pleased the audience with a pianoforte solo Ma zurka, Lescheti.ky. The address to the seniors by Bessie I). Buell of South Strafford was a nicely w rit- ten summary of the work of the class since it entered the school In 1000 and urged them not to forget the many opportunities made possible for them bv the careful training of the School aud to try and make the most of them. Always one of the most pleasing parts of class day is the will, which was read by G. Richard Grant. Any student who had transgressed or stepped out of the straight and narrow path was willed something which was sure to reiuiud hira of it. The programme was again varied by two pianofortes, Slavnio Donee No. 3, Dvorak, by Bessie Speare and Blanche Kidder, which was heartily applauded by the audience. Then followed the class presentation, which was ably done by Blanche Kibling of West Lebanon, X. IL, and Arthur Brown of North Williston and every member or the class received some token which made his or her cheeks red, show ing that it had hit the mark. The exercises closed with the siaging of the class song, which was very pretty, the music being written by Blanche Kidder. COMMENCEMENT CONCERT.
