C, March 22.?The moat horrible criine in the biatory of North Carolina was perpetrated early thia morning at Garnera, live milea eaat of this city, when a negro, Tom Jones, commotily known in thecoun ty aa "Preacher" Jonea, murdered Klla Jonea, and her olde8t daughter, Ida Jonea, and then aet fire to the beda in which lay the bodiea of the murdered vietima and four othera, all children, ranging in year8 from a baby one month old to the largeat boy, who waa not more than five year8 of age. The work waa done with an axe, The murderer, according to thestory of little seven-year-old Laura Jonea, who escaped with heryounge8t 8i8ter. The negro deliberately atruck the mother four timea and then made two heavy 8trokes iuto the body of the eldest child. The hou8e wascompletely deatroy ed by fire, and the bouea of the four youugest children were 80 frail that they are now dietributed among the aahea. TWO OFFICEBS K I I.I.KI). Emporia, Va., March 22.?The robbery of Tue8day night at the res idence of Mrs. E. A. Peeble's,in Em? poria, reaulted in an awful tragedy thia morning. Two men, one white the other colored, had for a few days taken shelter in a deaerted cabin near Skippert. Aa the whole com munily wasalive to find, if po88ib!e, the bold robbers who were commit ting the outrages Of the pa8t month, a Juatice and a Conatable went to see who were the inir?ate8 of the cab? in. As the oflicers got to the door the men iu the cabin at once fired on them, and they returned the fire. Both oflicers were killed instantly, nnd the two men in the cabin were both wounded. The white man wascaptured and has been lodged iu the jail here,but up to thia writing au armed force are atill in purauit of the negro, who ia thought to be the deeperado, Cotton, who lately eacaped from the jail iu Port8mouth under aentence of death. COTTON CAPTUUED. Walter Cotton waa arreeted about 0 o'clock Friday morning uear Stony Creek and brought to Emporia. The arrest was made by Mr. W. H. Moore and a colored man. They met eome train handa, who told them that they had 8een Cotton a ahort way down the track, aitting by a fire. Mr. Moore and the negro hadn't gone far before they met Cotton, who 8poke, aaying, "Good morning, gentlemet." Mr. Moore immediately leveltd his guo upon him, telling him to throw up his handa. He made no reaiatance, and Mr. Moore 8oon had him secured and diaarmed him. He had three piatola on his persou: alao two watche8, identified. as the property of Mr. Grizzard, and the store keys of Geo. W. Black, who waa killed aome weeka ago. Soon it becanie uoiaed about that a body of five hundred men wonld take him out of jail to-night and lynch him. JudgeGoodwyu became uneasy and began to ply Governor Tyler with telegrams, and tbe Gov? ernor, sent Company B of the Kich mond Light Infantry Blues to Em? poria to guard the jail. The mili tary reached Emporia about 4 o'clock and remained on duty until late at night Then it was thought all danger was past, so they were with drawn and a special guard of twenty five svorn in to do duty about the prison throughout the night BOTH MEN LYNCHED. The citizens ot the county, becom iug incensed at the presence of the military, compelled Judge Goodwyn to have them recalled. On Satur day the company retnrned to Rich mond. As soon as they had disappeared a tremendou8 mob of both whites and blacks made for the jail. In the cell Cotton and O'Grady sat, chained to the floor. Neither raised their eyes as the doors were opened, seem ing to realize that the end waa near and dreading to look irito the faces of their executioners. The crowd made a rTTsh for Cot? ton, and with oaths he was told that his end was at hand. He was asked how he felt. His voice quivered as he replied that he felt very badly. "Are you prepared to die?" was then asked. "No, sir; I ain't," came the answer, and then another asked if he had anything to say; any confession to make. "Oh, I doneit," he replied. "There ain't no use in my denying that, and 1 know you are going to hang me." There was no furtber parleying after thia. The noose was quickly adjusted about the negro's throat, he oftering no reaiatance whatever, and then he was told to stand. He could not for his shackle*, and eome one was seut toget the keys to thechain locka and the negro was soon freed from his shackles. Just in froiit of the court-house was an old sycamore tree. To thit the negro, numb from the effect ol his shacklee, was dragged, and it was but the work of a moment to toss the rope over the limb, when some oue cried: "Everybody catch hold of the rope." In a Sfcond Cotton was drawn up to the limb of the tree, his forehead being badly gashed by a protruding tvng. Two or three times the man was jerked up and down in an effort to break his neck. Then the rope was made fast to the truuk of tbe tree, and two men caught hold of his feet and swung to and fro by them, thus adding increased weight to the strain about the wretch's neck. Then two shots were tired into hi9 bodv. "BRING OUT THK WHITE MAN." Now the cry was raised, "Bring forth the white tramp." A start was made for the jail. but conserva tive people interceded and pleaded that the raan'a life be spared, inas much as there was no conclusive evidence against him. This action had the effeotof deterring the leaders, and they agreed to grant the man a temporary respite. The negroes, however, howled for blood, asserting that they had helped to lynch the uegro, and they must be given the body of the white man. Judge Barham attempted to pacify the negroes, but they refused to listen to reason, and finally the Judge said: "I don't tbink yon ought to hang this man yet, but if you ntust have him, Uke him." With that they entered the jail, and unaided by wbites, 8wung O'Grady to the tree. cotton's admission. Cottou admitted that he had escaped from the rortsmouth jail, where he was soon to have been hanged, and also that he killed Suunders and Weltou (the two otlicers) and committed numerous other crimes. His arrogaut and detiant air destroyed sympathy. He readily admitted baving robbed the Grizzard residencc this week, aud owned up to robbiug stores at Drew rystilleaod Courtland. He deuiea killing Bhok a few days ago, but admits that he was of the party that committed the deed. THE LEQISLATURE MAY ACT. A prominent member of the Leg islature said that he believed it was a case in which goodwould comeout of evil. "I thiuk it probable that if an extra session of the Legislature is called this lynching will be the 8ubject of a searching investigation, and will probably lead to the euact ment of laws to meet such caeee. W1CKKD i>i:>iocitAr 18 i>k L.IG11TI0D. The editor of the Tuscola, (IU.,) lieview is extracting malevolent eat isfaction from the aituation with ref erence to the paper market, aa he views it: "Every Hepublican editor in the country ia groaning and IWMrtefl about the way the trnst has put up the price of print paper, and every day cotnes a report from the whole aale houses of a rise of a half-cent or a cent on the material from whicli their paper is made. This delight ful state of affairs is liable to exist as long aa the tariff of $0 a ton on priut paper is kept up; and while it is as hard on the lieview as on the other papers, it is some satiafaction toseethe Hepublican editor3 make wry faces and howl about 8omething they brought about themaelvcs, or assiated in it. "In the meantime, if they want to do anything in this matter, the edi torsof Hepublican papers in this dis trict should fire in red-hot lettera to GongresBman Warner, to assist in wiping out that tariff of $6 a ton on print paper, 80that Canada can come in and compete. That uill bnst tln trust Otherwiae some of ttem will go bu8ted." HOKT1CULTURAL GUOUP. The three building for Ilorticulture. Graphic Arts and Forestry form a picturesque group at the end of the West Garden at the IWAmerican Exposition, to be beld at Buffalo, N. Y., on the Niagara Frontier from May 1st to November 1st, 1901. ' The largest of these, the Herticulture Building, stands between the other two on an axis with the garden The Forestry Building is on Lhe north side; the Graphic Arts on the aouth, adjoiniug the lake. Arrudea con nect the three buildmgs, forniing in front ? semi-circular court Between the arcades the ground rises sliahtlv to the level of the Fountain of the Seaaons. J The area of the Ilorticultural Building i8 45,000 feet square. The Graphic Arts and Forestry Buildinrs each cover 30,000 square feet, and are similar in design. In plan the llorticuiiural Building is square with central lantern rising to a height of 240 feet at the intersection of the four arms of a Greek cros* which in cludes in its angles four sn.all domes. On the centre of each facade is a deeply recessed arched entr'ance The broad white wall surfaces are ornamented with colored bas reliefs. Arabesques of twining vinea of fru.t and flowera, among the branches of which are children and birds, decorate the numerous pilastera ot the facades and arcades. Above the eastern entraoce of the Ilorticultural Building are two colored compositions repreaenting Ceres. the goddess of the harvest, bcaring in her arms a sheath of golden wheat, Iler chariot ia drawn by three lions led by Flora and Primavera. WHY PUBL1SHERS CHAR5E. For a Card of Tlianks, licaolu tloiia of Iteapect, Obltuary Poetry and the Likc. A publiaher who repudiates the idea that a newspaper is au eleemosy nary institution, is O. H. Dibble, of the St. Elmo (III.) Uanncr. He recently announced that thereafter he would charge for the kind of notices catalogued iu theabove head ing. Subsequent developmeuts are narrated in the following?which, by the way, ends with an admirably euccinct"declaratiou of principle:"? "Laat week's editorial haa brought out tbe opiniona of two correapon denta. One of them agrees with us, as followa:? ? 'Tbe editor of tbe Danner struck tbe key-note of true journaliam in bla au nouncement to charge the usual rates of advertising for the inaertion of 'carda of thanka,' 'resolutiona of reapect,' 'obltuary poetry,' etc. The tendency of moat villagc papers towarda ao much free ser vice ia one of the real causes of the numeroua wrecka that strew the sea of journaliam.' "Another valued contributor writee us:? "'I canuot aee whereyouexpecttogaiu byannouncing that you will charge for printing 'carda of thanka,' 'obituary notices,' etc' "On the other hand, we hardly see where we cao expect to lose. As we look at it, when we print a 'card of thanka' for anyone, we save that person the trouble of going or writ ing to the persons whom he may wish to thank. We do work for him; why shouldn't we charge him for the work we do? We never yet saw anyone who objected to paying for a card of thanka, and never ex? pect to. "We did not say we would charge for obituaries, but for 'obituary poetry.' So far as obituuries are concerued, we want whenever a person dies, to mention thefact, and also want to give age, with a short sketch of his life, a mention of the funeral, etc. This we want always to do, and shall appreciate a news item like the above from any of our correspondents or friends. "But as to very lengthy obituaries and obituary poetry, that isdifferent. Why? Because on'ly a few people read them. The relatives and im mediate friends do, of course, bnt others do not; and we wish to print matter that the public want to read, and will pay to read. So we charge for excesaively long obituaries and 'obituary poetry,' always. "What we have just said applies also to resolutiona of respect "Printing a newspaper is a busi ness enterpcise, pure and simple; and the succeasful publisher ia the one who fills his paper with what the public desire to read, then gets a good circulation, and thus gets ad? vertising. That's the way the Ban ner will try to do. "TENNIE" HAS COME BACK. Beaders of the Citizeh will recall the writings in these columna in times past from the pen of Lady Cook (nee Tennessee ClaQin), which were much admired contributiona to ourcolumn8. Lady Cook haa returned to America from England. With $2,000,000 to inveat in New York real eatate. Her firat purchase is a four-story brownstone reaidence on 121st atreet which ahe will make her home. ' Tennessee Clafln is now Lady Francis Cook. She also claima title aa Counte88 Montaerrat Her name was Tennie C. Clafin. She and her aistei, Victoria Woodbull, who waa married to John Biddulph Martin, were the adventuroua Claflin aiaters, who took Wall Street by the eara in 1869. Lady Cook haa been conduct ing a8tock of brokerage busiDess in London aiuce the firat of the year. The firm name ia Lady Cook & Co. Sir.Francis Cook'a title of Count of Montaerrat is Portugueae. He owna au estate of 13,000 acrea in Canti, Portugal. Sir Francia Cook ia one of the richest men in England. He married Tenneasee in 1885,_ lt is to be hoped that Lady Cook will not give up her literary work, of which ahe did a great deal while in England, aud that the Citizen will be agaiu fayored with her commuui cations. McKINLEY AND HANNA. The 8erious bluuder into which Mr. McKinley has been forced in reference to the Porto ltican bill has been a matter of surprise as well as of mortificatiou to many persons who are untble to under8taud his suddeu and radica' change of opinion. General Lew Wallace, one of his 8upportersand closepersonal frienda, comes forward with a statement that will perhaps throw some light on the subject. He explains the aituation by aaying that when in his message to Congres3, the Pre8ident recom mended free tariff with Porto Rico, it waa William McKinley who was epeaking from his heart; but when later on, he set diligently to work to urge Congres8men to eat tbc-ir utter ancea and vote for a duty on the in dustries of the ialand, goiug and com ing, then he was carrying out the views of Mark Hanna, the great Ohio suspect, aud thus it appeara that Mr. McKinley ia so thoroughly under the control of the man whoae fiat placed him in the Presidential chair, that in 8pite of hia own convictions, and in theface of his plain and patriotic ut terances, the country mourna the fact that the Chief Kxecutive officer ahould 8o far forget hia duty, and ao atultify himself, aa to bring down upon hia head the anathemaa of all fair-minded and right-thiuking peo ple. Newapapcra a Religiona Keccaaity. iStrmonof Rer.Rohrrt Hunter,nf Philmlcl^hia) Next to light, air, food aud rai ment, the newspaper ia one of the ne cesaities of life. Whoof us would be without our morning or evening paper ? The daily paper is secular, of course, but it tells us swiftly and surely what is going on eveu in the remotest parts of the earth, and the knowledge which we thus gain pre parea ua for the work which we are called upon to perform. What channel of iuformation ca?i compate with the newspaper of to day ? Be8ide that, all the opinions and conviucing argumenta of the va rious newspapersare with the church, and there haa never been a time wheu the new8papers have refused to give all poasible space to the cause of Chriat without money and without pnce. The church owes a debt to the newapapers, and the debt ia in creaaing every day. I doubt whether we will ever be able to pay it ? IM .IW III ii i II isBaby i TOOTliS?!
