Lashbrook Meets a Horrible Death He ifTaken From the Custody of the Sheriff and His Deputies by an Infuriated Mob A Rope in Thrown Over His Head and While Pleading for Mercy Brushwood and Timber is Plied About Him and Lighted by Many Willing Hands Maysville Ky Dec 7Negro mur derer Dick Coleman arrived at 1030 Wednesday morning under a special guard of deputies sworn in by the sheriff including Detective Fitzger ald Constable Dawson Chief of Po lice Donovan all of the police force and two deputy sheriffs When they arrived at the court house they were met by a mob of fully 1000 people headed by James Lashbrook the hus band of the murdered woman and went immediately up Second street through the central portion of the city to the hill followed by fully five thousand of the citizens of this city and county This is the first time anything of this kind ever happened in this city and the excitement is in tense All was done that was possible by the sheriff and his guard to pre vent a lynching but in the face of such a mob of people irrespective of color it was useless to attempt to do anything save deliver him up which was done They grabbed him and threw a rope over his head and took him up above the city and strung him up The poor wretch could be heard above the cries of the mob pleading for his he but the mob only heard the cries of Mr Lashbrook and the vengeance they meted out to him was just the thing About 250 were at the C d O train Tuesday night expecting him but as he failed to come they waited for him Wednesday morning There isno telling what would have been done had they succeeded in getting him in jail as there would have undoubtedly been several killed in the attempt to storm the jail doors The mob carried Coleman to a small hollow near the railroad tracks where they bound him tightly to n young sapling Then they heaped a huge pile of brush wood and timber around him and fired the stack while his eyes rolled horribly Some one cut out his eyes and in a moment his head rolled around and he was be lieved to be dead Coleman said 15 minutes before he was set afire that he had nothing to say His death was slow and writh ing in terrible agony he was hooted and glared at by the people standing on the edge of the pit Many women were present He died at 1050 am Tlie scene was an awful one and around the funeral pyre were 10000 maddened people headed by the hus band of the dead woman A dozen torches were applied simultaneously and huge tongues of fire swept up and around the agonized wretch ColemniiM Crime Colemans crime was a most revolt ing one He enticed Mrs Mary Lash brook into a shed on the pretense of looking at some work and knocked her senseless with a club He then asaulted her She showed signs of returning consciousness and he ran to his room got a razor and cut her throat Again she revived and he l ended her misery with a blow from an ax lIe jumped on a horse and riding to a field calmly told his vic tims husband that some one had killed her He was arrested later and before Lashbrook suspected that he was the murderer he was put on a train and taken to the Covington jail He made a complete confession of the fiendish crime to a Post reporter on his arrival He is only 20 years old and has- a pleasant face Mrs Lashbrookwas beautiful and a society favorite in Maysville DEATHoF SENATOR HAYWARD Ue Was Elected to the Senate

Signed by Two Election Commissioners For the Time Being In Ended One of the Most Bitterly Contested Gubernatorial Campaigns in the State Frankfort Ky Dec 10At 945 Saturday morning the election certi cate of William S Baylor was signed by the election commissioners and he was declared to be the governor elect of KentuckyThe figures of the vote filed with Secretary of State Finley are Taylor 193714 Goebel 191331 Tay lors plurality 2383 The operation which ended for the time being at least the bitterly fought gubernato rial contest was conducted in the simplest manner The majority opin ion of Commissioners Pryor and Ellis and the minority opinion of Commissioner Poyntz which were published Saturday morning were not read as was the original intention The three commissioners walked first to the office of the clerk of the state su preme court where they filed two opinions They then passed into the office of the secretary of state Clerk Chenault of the board of commissioners read the figures showing that the republican candidates for offices on the state ticket had received the larg est number of votes and then certi ficates of election were signed at once that of Mr Taylor being first on the list There were only 14 people in the room at the time and of this number only two were there as idle spectatorsThere no crowd around the building and no interest manifested in the work save by those engaged in it and those who stood looking on The certificates as soon as signed were filed with the secretary of state and certificates will be issued to the elected men at once by Gov Bradley Late Friday night when the deci sion had gone forth to the public Commissioner Ellis upon whose shoulders the greatest part of the work of preparing the opinion had fallen discussed the matter freely This has been a hard thing for me he said his eyes inflamed by loss of sleep and the heavy lines in his face bearing eloquent witness to the truth of his statement It has been a hard thing for all of us I wish how ever that all the people of the couii try knew how nobly Judge Pryor has acted in this matter and how conscientiously he has done what he considered his duty He is a great man one of the greatest in my opin ion that Kentucky has ever produced and I am sure his conduct in this case has been another piece of his long and honorable career as a public officer Speaking for myself continued Mr Ellis I say frankly I did not like to do this thing but under the law and the evidence there is nothing else I can do and be an honest man Why I was an original Goebel man I was a Goebel man long before he received the nomination and I am a Goebel man now I can go beyond that and say I am a Goebel partisan I have always been a partisan in politics a rank partisan and it would give me greater pleasure than I can express to be able to declare for the demo crats in this thing but I cant do it The proceedings before the board were so overwhelmingly in favor oy the republicans and they had so much the best of the arguments that it is almost idle to discuss the affair There was to the minds of Judge Pryor and myself only one thing to do and that we have done I know there are plenty of men who think that strong democratic partisan as 1 have always been I should have remained a democratic partisan and voted otherwise How can I do that How can I commit such a rape on my reputation and conscience as that Viewed from the legal standpoint which in things like this is the only standpoint I have done what my conscience and my long career as a law yer tell me is right and I will do oth erwise for no man nor upon any con sideration The statements made by Mr Ellis have been upheld by his conduct from first to last throughout the canvass He did all of the questioning of the atorneys and seemed at every stage to be most anxious to obtain the truth impartial to both sides Mr Goebel was apparently in the best of humor aster being told that Mr Taylors certificate had been signed Commissioner Poyntz declined to sign the republican certificates ol election saying that he stood by the opinion he had rendered and could not consistently do so He consented to sign the certificates of the rail road commissioners however Wants A Viceroy Degraded Pekin Dec 11The French govern ment has formally demanded the Cantonbbecause the order to execute the Chi nese magistrate

rates made known on application THE Democratic candidates in the late election have filed contests against their respective Republican opponcnts who on the face of the returns were awarded the certificates of election Five general causes of action are Get up as their grounds for contest Eirst the use of tissue ballots in the counties of Knox Johnson Magoffin Pike Martin Jackson Owsley Lewis Carter Pulaski Bell Clinton Russell Adair Har lan Casey Wayne Whitley Todd Caldwell Crittenden Perry Mill enburg Monroe Metcalf Butler Letcher Leslie Lee Laurel Hart Greenup Grayson Estill Kdmon son Cumberland Clay Ercckin ridge Boyd and Allen Second the unlawful use of the military on the day of election Third the use of an immense corruption fund procured and used for the pupose of fraudulently andcorruptly controlliug the elec tionFourth the improper interfer ence of Federal Marshals and Deputy Marshals at the polls Fifth the unlawful issuing of injunctions by certain Judges of Courts compelling election officers to sign false returns and fraudulent certificates of the election in the counties of Jefferson Knox and LewisThe charge as to the use of tissue or transparent ballots has not only been proven by the Demo crats but it is not denied by the Republicans The Court of Appeals in passing on this very quest ion and by an opinion rendered on the 9th inst in a case taken up rom Ohiocounty says We pare of the opinion that all ballots should be printed on white paper sufficiently thick that the cautiot n bedsSftritiugui1flieH from rite back and if ballots are used at an election which do not substantially comply with the law the election is not conducted as required by law and is invalid This is the law as declared by thehighest authority in the State and is the law by which the Con test Board on this question wil be governedThe as to the unlawfuluse of the military on the day of elect ion has been passed on bv no less an authority than Judges Pryor and Ellis members of the State Election Board wbo declared the act of calling out the State Guard not only unlawful but reprehensi ble Gov Bradley in defense of his action in calling out the State troops in Louisville says he did so upon the affidavits of Allen R Car ter President of the Dispatch Publishing Company Chas 1 Stewart Editor of Dispatch Richard W Knott Editor of Post andothers which stated that affi ants believed the free exercise of the right of franchise would be in terrupted and that there was great danger that breaches of the peace and riots would occur on the day of election that it would be necessary to strengthen the civil authori ties by the employment of military force But the affiants went fur ther and advised the Executive that the military torce could not be Safely placed under the command- of the Mayor Sheriff Jailer or con fidence of the police The law di1 rests when the military is callcdI cut it shall be placed command of the civil authorities cf the county except when marshal law is declared But in this case up on the affidavits interested partisans and although the Mayor Sheriff Jailer and Chief of Police are honorable gentlemen and civil officers acting under oath if appears that the soldiers were called out to resist rather than strengthen the civil authorities and that too without theTGovernor decjar ing marshal law J But the also says that soldiers were required to carry into effect t certain orders issued by Judge Toney which orders the Court of Appeals declare were illegal and void nt9rsaY51Itpetition signed by some 350 citizens and an affidavit by a justice of the peace telegraphed to him that troops were necessary there His information that there too the Mayor Sheriff Jailer Chief of Police and Marshal were aidiitg and abetting in the lawlessness and civil offi ofIficetheir city and county yet alpeti tionJ signed by some 350 citizens and a telegram from a J P in the form of an affidavit was sufficient i wairnnt for him to call into service the military to resist the legally elected and acting civil officers of the County of Keiiton and City of Covington Why Who can say it was not because the officials were Democrats while the tele oacitizens were Republicans The third grounds that the Re publicans hadan immense co ruption fund how it was raised and how it was used is known by all menThe fifth the illegally issuing of mandatory orders by certain Circuit Judges against election officers has already been refered to as having been decided by the Court of last resort as illegal and voidIt is not only true that the tis sue ballots were resorted to for the purpose of ascertaining whether the floater had delivered the goods but in counties where these ballots were not in use other schemes and devices were employed by which the Honest Election Leaguers would know their money was not paid for something they did not get This was not an electiou by the secret ballot as has already been shown by proof unquestioned in many of the counties it was not an election when the voter free from intimidation was permitted to cast his ballot for the candidates of his choice as the proof in the City of Lousville and many other places abuudeutly shows But it was an election by bribery intimi datiou force and fraud If it had not been thresult would have been different by many thousand votes With anything like a fair election the Democratic ticket would have been elected by a large tbeIwere candidates And now with the facts as the proof already taken shows and the law as declared in the opinions rendered by the Court of Appeals and the State Election Board and the right as shown from every source on their side the Democratic candidates owe it to themselves their party and their State to contest for the offices to which they were legally elected PRESIDENT McKiuleys message to Congress last week was both long and voluminous He paid ahigh tribute to the late VicePresident Mr Hobart The President comes straight out for the gold standard In the StLouis Convention that nominated Maj McKinley the platform 4n ternational agreement ExSpeak er Reed says if the millionaires want the gold standard they must pass it during the coming session of Congress The greater part of the message deals with Porto Rico Hawaii and the Philippines but no definite recommendations for the future government of those faroff islands are proposed For Porto Rico he suggests a tempor airy civil government with a Leg islative and Executive branch to be appointed by the President Nothing is said of Ole future gov eminent of Hawaii save the immer diatei establishment of a Federal Court Ve were greatly in hopes the President would indicate a poll cy for the fepossessions but there isnt a word or sentence that promises local selfgovernment for f the islands He asks for an increase in the navy that a cable be extended to Japan that changes be made in the Civil Service rules that where aliens are concerned the Federal authorities sshould be given jurisdiction in lynching cases and to support the gold standard the Treasury be empowered to sell United States bonds and to employ such other effective means as may be necessary LAST Tuesday Wm O Brad leys term of office expired and Gen Taylor was inaugurated Gov ernor of Kentucky Like all of us who are of the Dearth earthy he has made his mistakes and some of them grave and egregious He was right in opposing Hunter but wrong in ringing the fire alarm and calling out his militia Brady ley has a wonderfully inordinate ambition but his vicePresidential boat sunk with marvelous rapidity in 96 and he became the laughingstock of all Kentuckians But for our part we greatly admire him andwould like to see him attached to thejVIcTCiuley kite in 1900 He has tried to do what an honest con science told him was right in the execution of the law He has opposed those things which he eavb ored to upbuild and strengthen the cause of right But his latest bad break was his worst and that was without any call from a civil officer and in a time of a profound peace to go in person to the City ot Louisville and order out his armed soldiers with glittering bayonets and mounted guns on election day But with all his faults his black guardismhis vile language and his vulgar stories he is able wise and brilliant and without question one of

on the burning of the Negro Coleman at Maysville This came in reply to an interview by Judge James P Tarvin of Covington criti cising the state authorities and hold ing them responsible for the Mays yule mob The governor Friday af ternoon wired Tarvin asking him if he had been correctly reported and received the following reply The penalty given Coleman may be considered just but the failure of the state authorities to protect him after he was a custody is wrong and any citizen has a right to criticize it The fact that he was a Negro hardly above a brute is only the more rea son for protecting him If your tele gram means fight I have the choice of weapons and choose cannon you to stay at Frankfort and I at Coving ton Please dont send the militia The governor commenting on it said This dispatch is characteristic of the man If the penalty given Cole man by the people was just why should Tarvin object As to his prop osition to remain in Covington and fight a gentleman in Frankfort per sons who know him will be astonished to learn he is willing to fight even at that distance The governor closes isis statement by saying As governor I have done everything in my power to protect human life and enforce the law If I had known as Judge Tarvin knew that this man was about to be taken to his death at the hands of a mob I would not have kept a cowardly silence as he did but would have pro tected him Ever since Tarvin was seized with the insane thought that he was vice presidential timber his friends have kept constant watch on him This last effusion is additional
