CrxcixsATi. Feb. 17. Tho excitement
In thin city nml vicinity over the atrocious
mtmliir of IVarl Hrynn has been intensi-fl-d
by the IiitcfU-rclcpments. People had
time for reading the papers yesterday and
tho forling Inst night was of the silent
but ready sort that portend danger. No
outbreak Is anticipate.!, and a succcssf al
one here would be out of the question with
the present rfllcluncy of tho police and the
lnilitory. While tho feeling here it of the
explosive aort tho external restraint is
sufficient to prevent an explosion. Every
othrr mnn one meets expresses the opin
ion that short work 'should bo mndo of
thrso men. The thinking and strictly law
aljlilintr (lament In Covington and Near
port linro ennfldonco In tho courts and
Ix'liove in depending on the courts to mete
out justlcn to thj prisoners. It Is now
probablo thnt they will be taken to tho
Covington jail, vrhii-h Is very strong and
nd also well situated to reai.-t a sirga.
The Men Who Drove the Carriage.
And the development that turn awakened
the mob spirit hcrj is the discovery of the
man who ilrove IVarl Brynn to the rdacc
where sho wns killed. The driver's name
is (ioorpo K. Jnrkson, a nero who is
(riven a lir.-U -class ropiitntioii by every one
who know him, and who had kept quiet
for fear he miht be held as an accessory.
Ho sura ho was hired for (3 which ho
never pot to driva a surrey over to Now
port aud out into the country; thnt there
was a tnan mid woman inside the surrey,
and another man sat with Jackson on the
box. When the two men took tho woman
aut of tho anrrey they had to support her,
nnd later Jackson he-aril a scuffle nnd
rrics, got scan'd and ran home, leaving
horse uml surrey.
lrtv- Ovrr tlie Route Again.
In order to clinch the matter it wns do
termined to drive over the route of tho
murderers with .lurk -ion as driver, and ac
cordingly a procession of carriages started
nt. l"J:4i yesterday morning about tho
timo Jackson was employed by tho assas
sins on tho route, which was' fol
lowed to the scene of the murder near
Fort Thom.is. A halt was mada at tho
Newport brldire toll booth to seek another
i liulfa Toil CwaVuitur Tarvin said he xu
luembered the surrey driven by a colored
man passing over the bridge about 1
o'clock on the morning of Feb. 1. It con
tained a man and a woman, nnd thoro was
a white man with tho negro driver on tho
sent. The procession was led by Georgo
lacktou through unfrequented back
streets In Newport and by a long circuit
ous route of mud roads and llna'.ly into
the Alexandria pike near Fort Thomas.

After driving short distance Jackson
stopped just where a blind lane set out
from the road. "Horn," snld he, 'is where
they took tho truly and telling me to turn
the carriage around to wait." Where ho
stopped was allot 'K) yards from the spot
wlier IVarl Hrvaii was found dead on tho
iimrnlng of Feb. 1. Here o. tho spot
were the too conllding jrirl was M to her
cruel d ath nml at about the saino gloomy
hour of that tragedy, the colored man re-p-at-d
Ids story of the events of that fatal
night. When tho negro di'SiTllml the
strange noise nnd tho sounds of a scuffle
in the leaves and bushes, along with his
own suddeu fright and Might, the bystand
ers shuddered nnd almost imagined they
could hear tiiti rust hi of tho. leaves in the
trtijrglv of IVarl llryan for her Hio.

Not trrt.iln A limit .Vnnng Jackson, but
Thinks lie I the Mao.
The examination of the twenty or thirty
men in a Mcuiii'lrcle at the jail at mid
night by the colored man Jackson was
dramatic in the extreme. Walling stood
near one extremity of the arc. The negro
Jackson licgau his insp.-rtion nt Waiting's
cud of the line. Ho examined every one,
li.an by man, till he got to the end of the
line. Then he turned, walked briskly
back nnd halted in front of Walling. All
this time ho had not spoken a word. View
ing Walling all around, like a man ex
a'uininga horse he was about to buy. he
Mopped in front of him and said: "That
Is the man that sat on tho seat with me."
During the drive the negro wanted to quit
and give up hi job, when his companion
put a pistol to his head.
lie was toM that if he did not go on ho
would be killed, and that if he ever spoke
of the night's adventure tho sanio fat
nw.ut.Ml him, whether tho speaker was
raucbt. or not, as he and the man inside
had friends who were not in tlds adven
ture, but who would kill any man who
betrayed them. Walling was required to
say similar words again and tho negro
said he was certain he was one of the men;
his voice bet raved hiin. Young Jackson
was ideniili-d as to size and partially as
Highest of all in Leavening
to the sound of bis voice The negro' ex
treme caution gives force to his evidence.
He said "I don't want to make any mis
take," and then he took his time in mak
ing the examination.
Jackson, when the thing was over,
talked flippantly to his visitors. To one
be said, "Call the jailer and ask him if he
found a sum y in my pockets when he
searched me." He tries to ridicule the
multitude of clues that are followed.
Walling was more sullen and reticent.
Ho denounced the negro's statement as a
In his statement the negro said that he
found in the surrey, instead of a round
hitching weight, a piece of railroad rail
about a foot long while waiting for the re
turn of the two mca who had gone away
with the girl at the place of the murder.
It had two hole through It. A leather
strap was fastened to one of these holes.
That ho used for a hitching weight and
then ran away as fast as be could run
ftntil he came home. Kight here la a
great point in tho chain of circumstances.
It was just precisely such a piece of rail
road iron that was wrapped up in Jack
son bloody coat when it was fished out of
a sewer cat;h basin at tho corner of John
and Iticbmond streets several days ago.
Another circumstances that supports
Georgo II. Jackson's story that tho con
veyance used was a surrey and that
George. H. Jackson abandoned it In fright
on that tragic night is the fact that a
gentleman of Newport driving toward
Fort Thomas in a bunny on that Saturday
morning about 3 o'clock, met a surrey
drawn by a gray horso with two men on
the front seat and collided with it He got
out and the men in tho surrey drovo on

BR.UILKY TAKKS SO CUAhCES,
Kentucky's Governor Will Meet Judge
Lynch with Fire ami StaeU
Fkaskfort, Fell. 17 The McCreary
guards ore underorders and a load of am
munition has been taken to their armory.
There were rumors that this precaution Is
iu anticipation of troublo in the legisla
ture; at Newport on account of Jackson
and Walling, tlio murderers of Pearl
ltrynn, being transferred across tho river,
and on account of tho danger of a lynch
ing at Augusta, Ky. While the state of
ficials deny all tho rumors it is gener
ally believed that this action is in anticipa
tion of a lynching at Augusta.
At' Augusta the wife and 14-year-old
niece of Holiert Lnughlin were murdered
nnd their bodies cremated in their home,
(jiughiin's story is that masked robbers
did tho deed nnd assnulted him, stabbing
him several times, and that ho escaped in
tho darkness. This is not believed. Tho
people think his wife caught him assault
ing her niece and he killed them both to
cover his crime. Consequently there Is a
desire to lynch him, which the governor
appears to be gettlnir ready to meet with a
vigor that will be effective.

of the Northwestern.
CnicAoo, Feb. 17. Willinm II. Hughitt,
son of tho president of tho Chicago and
Northwestern railroad, shot and killed
himself at his father's residence in this
city Saturday evening. Tho young man.
who was a student of Madison (Wis.) uni
versity, was home on account of Illness,
nnd, it is supposed, killed himself whilo
temporarily insane. The dead man was
tho youngest son of Marvin Hughitt, nnd
wns studying law at the university. The
young man had much trouble with sovero
hendaches, and this caused him great
worry and greatiy hintlcivd him from
keeping himself to his studies.
Everything possible was dono to restore
his health, but all efforts were in vain.
Still he kept on with his studies as best bo
could. Two weeks ago the pains in his
head beeame unbearablo and he was forced
to give up his studies nnd return homo.
Every dny he complained of headaches that
almost blinded him, but Saturday they
beenmo more severo than ever and ho re
mained in bed most of tho time. His
mother took up dinner to him, and when
sho again went up to his room a little
later found tho door locked. Becoming
anxious in tho evening tho door was
forced open. Young Hughitt was found
lying on the floor in a pool of blood, hav
ing shot himself in tho head. It is sup

Washisotox, Feb. 17. J. J. Mott chair
man of the national .commtttee of the

people in which he gives at length the
argument for tho rehabilitation of silver,
declaring that the progress of the world
toward better things has been ruthlessly
stopped "by tho rejection of one of the
precious metals in the interests of greed,
and by this aet the money changers have
been enthroned, and the narrowing of tho

become scarcer In proportion, and as
money became scarcer prices fell In pro

"The first step he says tho essential
preliminary to tho correction of present
abuses, tho re-establishmcnt of national
prosperity and tho maintenance of our
national credit is the election of a presi

inflexible integrity will defy the influences
that prostitute presidents and cabinots.and
