ALL EFFORTS EXHAUSTED
Chicago, Feb.:. A dispatch to the
, Tribune from Jackson, Miss., says:
While hundreds of white men are
systematically searching the homes of
every negro In the city, hunting for
a colored man who assaulted a young
white woman, with the avowed inten
tion of putting him to death, Governor
Vardamanh is working hard to pre
vent a lynching in the capital city of
the sate. . .
.When he news of the crime reached"
him the governor sent his friends all
over the town as emissaries of law
and order, telling them to plead with
N every man they met to allow the law
to take Its course.
Then he started on a personal cam
paign. Charging up and down the
s main street, he expostuated with every
group of men on the corners and urged
every argument at his command to
Induce them to disperse.
The governor soon saw his efforts
were likely to prove unavailing anc"
finally went with the rapidly increas
ing mob to the court house, where, ac
cording to rumors, the young woman's
assailant was under guard. "
The reports were unfounded but the
mob refused to believe the sheriff and
began making threatening demonstra
tlons. ' ' .
Governor Vardamann, after Instruct
lng the sheriff and his deputies to de
fend the prisoner to the last if he
should be brought to them, mounted
the steps knd began ah impassioned
address. He declared the law pro
vided good and proper punishment for
the crime in question, assured the cltl
sens of Jackson that there would be
no delay in carrying it into effect, and
pleaded with them to "allow the law
to take its course."
The governor offered to pay $500 for
the arrest of the negro providing be
was delivered alive to the authorities.
His appeal was listened to in silence.
The local military company has been
ordered out and under the governor's
personal direction will be used tc
protect the prisoner if he is captured
