The Limon, Colo., Murderer Burned at
Limon, Colo., Nov. 19.—Chained to
a railroad rail set firmly in the ground,
on the exact spot where his fiendish
crime was committed, Preston Porter,
Jr., or, as he was familiarly known,
John Porter, this evening paid a terri
ble penalty for his deed. It was 6:23
o’clock when the father of the murder
ed girl touched the match to the fuel
which had been piled around the ne
gro, and 20 minutes later a last con
vulsive shudder told that life was ex
tinct. What agony the doomed boy
suffered while the flames shriveled
up his flesh could only be guessed by
the terrible contortions of his face and
the cries he gave from time to time.
The executioners, who numbered
al>out 300 citizens of Limon county,
had not the least semblance of the or
dinary mob. Their every act was de

tions, as well as throughout the suffer
ings of the negro, hardly an unneces

stood in a circle alrout the tire until
the bodv was entirely consumed aud
then quietly they took their way back
to Limon, from whence they departed
for their homes shortly afterward.

Trouble Between Two
Union« at Tampa.
Tampa, Fla., Nov. 19.—Rioting be
tween International and Resistiancia
Unions of cigarmakers began here to
day at the factory of Gonzales, Mora
& Co., of Tampa and Chicago. This
firm was working a full force of Resis-
tiancia men, numbering aliout 500.
The Internationals marched to the fac
tory and demanded that these men
come out. This was retused and the
Internationals declared they would put
them out. The premises are encolsed,
and as an International man started to
enter the gate the Italian doorkeeper
fired upon him. This was quickly fol
lowed by an exchanged)! several hun
dred shots. The front aud side of the
buildings were riddled with bullets,
but no one has been reported injured.
Police officers dispersed the mob.
Every factory closed at noon for the
day. The mayor has sworn in 100 ex
tra policemen, and the sheriff has add
ed numerous deputies to his force. The
mayor issued a proclamation forbiddiug

tions of the rival trades unions, planned
The Internationals have about 800
members here, while the Resistiaucia
members number over 3,000.
Since the rioting, the city has pre
sented a wildly excited condition, and
the streets in the neighborhood of the ,
cigar factories have been thronged
with people. This afternoon, a mass
meeting of business men passed a reso
lution authorizing the chairman to ap
point committees, which the unions |
did. These committees met and agreed
that all the men should go to work to
morrow morning. The Internationals
have agreed to this proposition practi
cally, but the Resistiancia Union is
still considering the matter. It is
thought it will be adopted before morn
ing. All the factories are now heavily
guarded by deputies.

mildness of the sentences excites ridi

their determination to demand the

illusory. Prince Tuan is merely ban
