Officers Successfully FolUd a Mob of Rati

Topeka, Kan., Feb. 28. The vigil
ance of the officers was all that saved
"flick" fclster from lynching by an
Infuriated mob tonight, lie will yet
be iynubed If be can be found. Slater
assaulted 17-year-old Lottie Gerberick
Mondav evanim. and was cantared by
the Topeka officers tbe next day at
Carbondale. This afternoon it became
known that he waa here, and immedi.
ately the Santa Fe shopmen; of whom
the assaulted girl s father, ueorge uer
berick Is one, decided that he should be
lynched. Ther at once sent a commit
tee to watch the Jail while tney quiet
ly arranged tbe details of the expected
lynching. .
By e o'clock there was an angry mob
of 1,000 around the jail, demanding
that tbe prisoner be delivered to tbern.
A brigade of sturdy boilermakers,
r.imel with haw aledite hammers.
stood ready to make short work of the
Jail in case tbe demands were not
granted. Sheriff Cook told the crowd
that the prisoner bad been removed,
and offered ti let a committee search
tbe jail. Ten men, headed try George
Gerberick, made a thorough search, but
Slater could not be found. They re
turned and told tbe mob, but tbat did
not satisfy them, and twice they started
to break in the Jail doors.
Fatly in the afternoon, tbe sheriff.
In anticipation of trouble, ordered a
deputy to get Slater out of town. He
was ordered not to leave bim in Jack
son county nor to take him to Leaven
worth. The deputy drove to Hoyt with
Slater and entered a north Donna kock
Island train. It is thongbt that Slater
is now in Jail in Atchison. Tbe Santa
Fe shopmen are calmly (determined to
lynch Slater when be is brought back
here lor trial. They have appointed a
large vigilance committee to be con
stantly on the outlook, and vow tbat
Slater will never leave Topeka alive.
The shopmen have pastreoord in cases
of this kind. They lynched John OH-
pbant 12 years ago for a like onense.
