Joplin, Mo., April 15. An infu
riated aob took an unknown tramp
u negro froas the city jail tonight and
faaagaai him to a telegraph pole at
that u-mr : of Second and Wall
.sweet, two blocks from the city jail.
The negro was charged with having
murdered Policeman Leslie who
was -bot dead last night in the
Kansas City Southern Railway j
. v&rds, while endeavoring to arrest
several negroes suspected of theft,
leslie bad ordered several negroes
who bad taken retusre in a box car
to surrender, and when they failed
to do eo, he fired several shots at the
car. During the shooiing a negro
slipped from the car, and coming
up behind the policeman, shot him
through the bead.
About 3 o'clock in the afternoon
Iee Fullertou, aged 13, located the
fugitive in a slaughter-house just
east of Joplin. The negro was arm
ed witb a. rifle and defied arrest
Fulisrton slipped into tbe structure
unobserved and crept op behind
the negro. Suddenly he sprang atthe
unsuspecting man and, before resiat-
" ance could be made, he bad tne ne
gro on his back with a khife at his
throat. The negto then surrender
ed his rifle, and, pointing the weap
on at him, Fullerton marched bim
out ottne DuuiiiDg. vvitn tne as-
sistac.ce oi another man tne negro
was brought to Joplin and placed
News of the capture spread rap
idly, and the jail was speedily sur
rounded by hundreds of people.
There were cries of "lyneh him,"
and City Attorn y Decker mounted
the jail steps and made a- strong
plea in behalf of law and order,
serving temporarily to stay the mob,
but did not appease it, and a .short
time after Decker's f perch, the mob
started in to batter in the side of
tbe jail. Every effort was made to
prevent the entrance of the mob,
: but wituout avail, and ; within 15
'minutes the infuriated !men had
gained entrance to 'the jail and se
cured the trembling negro.
. As be was dragged forth City At
tomy Decker interfered and urg
ed that the negro be given a trial';
For half an hour he spoke, and the
mob listened to him with tbe negro
in its custody. At one time it seem
ed that the city attorney would win,
as members of the mob began dis
persing, but suddenly a rush was
made for the spot where the negro
was being held, and he was drag
ged two blocks from the jail, a rope
tastened around his neck, and, after
the rope had baen thrown over the
caoas-arm of a telegraph pole, a
score of men attempted to pull the
negro from the ground. . As many
more seized the negro" and ; pulled
to prevent his being haDged.
For some moments it was a verit
able tug-of-war, but reinforcements
on the free end of the rope proved
the stronger, and the negro, despite
his protestations of innocence, , was
finally swung into the air and
strangled to death, while shouts of
satisfaction went up from the mob.
Manila, April 13. The warship
Reina Christina, the flagship of
Admiral Montejo, which was sunk
by Admiral Dewey, was floated and
beached yesterday. The skeletons
of about 80 of her crew were found
in her hulk.
One skeleton was evidently that
of an' officer, for it bad a sword by
its Bide. There are 15 shell holes
in the hall of the Reina Christina,
one made by an eight-inch and oth
ers smaller. The main injection
valve is missing, showing the ship
was scuttled when abandoned. The
hall is in fair condition.
Captain Albert R. Couden, com
manding the naval station at Cavi-
te, took charge of the remains of
the sailors, expressing a desire to
give them an American naval fun
eral.;, The Spanish residents are
anxious, however, : to ship the
skeletons to Spain, and it is sug
gested' that the transport Sumner
.convey them to Spain by the way
of the Suez canal in June. . -,

FOR THE CITY
i.-.-.'i r.i ;
TO PUT IN A
i ER SYSTEM
Wants Light , Franchise, too Al
bany Capitalists Would In
vest Expectation That
Things Will be Do
ing in Coining
Corvallts is likely to be in a fer
ment of discussion of 'local affairs
in coming weeks. ' Local states
men and financier will have a big
load, on tbeir shoulders, lbe wat
er question, end probably the light
ing question for the municipality
are matters that seem to be in fair
way to piovide food for thought,
negotiation and debate. . The fran
cnise ot the local water company
expired a year go, and the fran
chise of the present lighting com
pany comes to an. end iu Jtne
Visions and theories for renewal of
the franchises atid the develop
ment and extension 'of the two
systems are all ready revolving in
the minds of ' townspeople. They
revolve faster since the '; council
determined to advertise for bids
for the water franchise. What the
outcome will bv remains to be seen
One prospective bidder for fran
chises from the city has already
been in tewh. He is Charles
HQgue. He spent Wednesday and
Thursday in CorvallisTetnrntag to
his home at Aibany yesterday.
He to d various persons that he
represented people who bad -money
o iovest in the very sort of fran
chises that Corvallis wants to sell.
He indicated that his people would
be a bidder for the water franchise.
It is also known that they have an
eye on the light franchise, Some
of them are supposed to be stock
holders in the Albany Electric Light
Power and Water company. There
they operate light, water and pow
er plants all in one. They say it
is more economical. ' It is probable
that their ultimate proposition will
be to effect a similar arrangement
in Corvallis. v .
While in Corvallis, Mr. Hogue
made a thorough study of the sit
uation. He took sonnaings of the
Willamette river bed. He looked
up the plan of a mountain water
system. He figured as to a deep
well system. He studied a filter
ed Williamette river water , system.
He expressed the opinion that a
mountain water system was out of
the question. ; "He said that he
thought it would cost so much,
that capitalists would" not take
a-hold of it on that basis. : He took
home with him a copy of the plan
adopted by the city ' council. He
said the fire requirements in one
respect were somewhat - unreason
able. Three.' streams of water
through an inch - and a quarter
nozzle . seventy five feet high
might be feasible and possible on
four or five of,the principal 6treets
ot 1 he town, he said, but they
would be unnecessary and alto
gether too expensive for outlying
limits. A main that would pro
vide for one stream the required
heighth would be enough, he said,
for Job's addition, and that is, he
thought about as much as any in
vesting company would propose to
supply- It was pretty clear from
his conversation that rJtfr. Hogue's
bid will likely be on a basis of
Willamette river water filtered
through sand, six inches of which
Mr. Hogue says, will clear any
water of all bacteria.- '
'Several persons have urged
members of the council , to adver
tiee for bids for a light , " franchise
at the same time with the - water
franchise. The councilmen say ; it
cannot be done without a special
meeting of thecouncil, ' ': and the
adoption of such lighting: plan as
the city wants, - It seems unlikely
that such meeting ' will be called
Generally Speaking, there is belief
that the two plants could be
operated but for a : small amount
more than one of them now costs,
and that a corresponding reduction
of rates might be made whenever
the municipality completes its ne
gotiations for the new order of
things which it is expected will
come "to pass within the next few
Fair-, Appropriation too' big Would
Like to Sign the Referendum
Editor Times: v
' j.I notice in your valuable paper
what Frank Hughes has to say
about the Iewis and Clark Fair
boom. There are others who are
opposed to so big a boom : and. are
not afraid to say so, over their own
see the rasonrforsu?h;iv.'plossal
qutlay. Of course adecent com
.mernoraticra, of events which led up
to the addition cjf this' 'vast '.horth

much. ;,One rfifth .of, theamount

only,-reason that Jl have heard given
in support of the fair, is that it will
boom- the. country, attract people
here by the thousand, raise land
and all other values. Now then,
if everybody wants to sell out, this
would be alright, but I don't think
we all want to sell, and as ' for xat
tracting people here, I ask if they
are not already coming fast enough
and will not the question soon be
what to do with all ' the im
migration instead of wanting more.
It was Rev. I. D. Driver who made
the prediction that the time would
come when we would see the lar
gest cities in the; world somewhere
on this northwest coast, and that in
oraer to Duy a piece or land you
would have to cover it with silver
dollars. I will not take the space
to give his reasons but it is being
fulfilled, people cant eat gold and
silver but they can raise from
mother earth that which will sup
port life. If I get a chance tq do
so I shall sign the petition to have
the law referred, not because I wanj
to retaliate on '- Portland because
they did not support the corpora
tion tax law, but because I think
the amount extravagant, and out of
proportion to the resoutces of -an
already overtaxed people. -'
I should 'Juke ,to see a display
befitting the time and the occasion,
but colossal ' buildings at great ex
pense to afterward be a dead loss
or furnish a chance for those look
ing out for grafts is not what the
tax-payers want to see.
