At about 12:15 this morning some one called at the door of the Court-house and was answered by Jailor Reed, who was requested to open the door. Mr. Reed refused, when the door was forcibly broken and about 75 men entered. The jailor was or dered to throw up his hands, which he did. The keys were then demanded, but refused. Search was then made and the keys found. The mob entered the cells containing Thomas and Wil liam Yokum, and lynched them by hanmnff them in their cells. Wm. Yokum was chained to the floor of the the cell, and as the chain could not be loosened, he was hung with the chain on his feet and was shot several times. The Yokums were in jail for the killing of Johnson and Tucker at Long Tom, more than a year ago. Wm.
