SuVteJnck ofj State Innrance ttokl "Wichita Falls, Tex., Feb. 27.-At 8:30 last night a mob of several thous and persons attacked tho Jail here, where Foster Crawford and "Tho Kid" were conllncd. After a show of resistance on the part of the authori ties, tho mob battered In tho Jail doors and forcibly took possession of the prisoners. The two men wcro taken to tho bank which they at tempted to rob yesterday, and an Im provised scailold was erected. "The Kid" refused to say a word, and those having him In charge yanked him on the box. The scene was a weird one lie had on high-heeled boots, black pants and a deep-red flannel shirt, which added a growsomo brilliancy to tho scene. In a moment tho ropo was about his neck, and a man, who some one said looked like one of tho men whose horses had boon taken yesterday, "shinned up" a telegraph polo and ilx tho end of tho ropo across the crossbar. All tho tlmo "The Kid" was Jeering at tho crowd, laughing and cursing. He never quivered. Ho was asked to say what ho wanted, nnd was told he would be given a hearing. no said: "By Godl that's all right. If you aro Impatient, swing mo up now. I ain't afraid to die; not n bit of It. Pull tho rope, by Godl" A voice in tho nudlcnco Bald: "You're going to dlo now. Tell us your name." "Tho Kid" I don't caro If I do; It's Younger Lowes, and my father and mother reside In Neosho, Mo. "Any message?" from a voice In the crowd. Vnll toll tiv fnt.lmr T wns not ill,.., vw. ...,, ........ scared a bit; that I died like a nervy man." "Anything for your mother?" "No, not a word; she will sco tho messagoto tho old man. Say, you fellows, go and look In that dugout, and you'll find $10,000 there." "The Kid," or Younger Lewes, as boat tho last moment called himself, continued chatting and laughing with tho crowd, poking fun at them and cursing for a moment, and then somo one yelled: "Tlmo Is up!" "The Kid" said: "I am 20 years old; I am dead game, and ready to dlo; go ahead." In an Instant he was pulled up above tho throng. Ho nevor quivered or kicked. Ho Just went up in the air nnd there ho Is hanclng now. Ho was tho coolest man In all tho crowd. All the while Crawford was a spec tator of tho scene. Ho began to weaken, and confessed, giving some valuablo information. Ho placed tho responsibility for the crlmo on "Tho Kid." The mob shoved him up to tho improvised platform nexttotko bank he had attempted to rob, and his head was about on a level with the dangling feet of his companion, ne asked for Captaiu Burnett. Tho latter was a spectator in the crowd. He went to Crawford and had a long talk. Crawford had worked on Burnett's ranch for years and was a trusted man. no began stealing his employ ers' stock, however, and associating with the territory outlaws The twg parted company. Crawford confessed to the robbery of yesterday, but denied tho murder. Ho was a small man, poorly clad, with, red face and short-clipped black moustache.

Tho hotel was not being run, but was occupied by Miss Joslo Snyder and her brother, children or tho proprietor. They woro awakoncd by tho cracking of tho Humes and the accumulating smoko In their rooms. They rushed out as quickly as possible and gavo tho alarm, but hardly had tlmo to dross. Miss Snyder hastily gathered up her own clothes, while her brother only got out with his shirt and pants on. Tho lire depart ment nrrlvcd In good season, and Chelf Ilutton Is certain that ho could have saved tho east half of tho building, us well as the addition, but the engine failed to furnish tho neces sary water. When tho englno arrived at tho Winter street brldgo it Is said to havo had CO pounds of steam up, but this was permitted to run down to a pressure where no stream could bo thrown. Tho statement Is made that driving tho ongino off tho brldgo Into the creek made It Impossible to got suniclent draught, while another opinion prevails that too much fuel was crowded Into tho llro box, which made It Impossible to get a quick Arc. Theso engines aro thought to havo a good draught undor almost any con ditions, but cannot bear choking with fuel. Wherever tho fault may rest, it is certain that tho llro could havo been put out had tho ongino dono Its work. If tho englno Is at fault, It should bo everlastingly remedied or disposed of. Tf tho men In chargo aro at fault, thoy should bo treated like wise. Tho Insurance on tho property wns fo,r $2,000 qn tho buildings and $700 on tho contontsln tho Commercial Union Company. A llttlo of tho bedding nnd furniture was saved, but tho loss to tho owners, 11. F. and Sarah Snyder will be a severe one.
