PRESIDENT DIAZ’S ASSAIL-

Citt of Mexico, Sept l1*.—Annlfo
Arroyo, the miscreant who made un
attempt upon the life of President
Diaz, was set upon by a mob of infur*
iated citizens shortly utter midnight
and killed with kuife stabs.
General satisfaction was expressed
hero over the affair, although the
more reflective people, especially bus-
iness and professional men, said they
deplored the act, and feared it would
be misinterpreted abroad.
From the moment Arroyo was ar-
rested In front of the alameda, or cen-
tral public park,masses of people kept
elamoring for his life, and taunted

prisoner in charge, with not using his

The Shaft at tlslens Searched Is Vnla—
Were the Corpse* Decomposed?
Oai.kna, Kan.. Sept is. -The bob
tom of the fifty foot shaft in which the
bodies of two of the Stafflcbacl*
victims were thought to be was
reached last night, but un ttodie* were
found. As soon us arrangements cun
be made, it is probuble that another
shaft will l>e searched, though lack of
success in the first instuucc has rather
discouraged the searchers.
The persistency with which Cora
Ntuttleback clings to the story of the
murder of the two girls and the throw-
ing of their bodies into the shaft just
cleaned out leads the officers to believe
Ilia*, her story Is true. Cora slated at
the roramcncement of the work that
she had heard tlio Ntaffiobacks talking
nlmut taking the bodies out ns soon as
they rose to the surface of the water,
and they may have done so. There is
another explanation, however, much
more plausible. The water in llie
shaft is strongly alkaline, and the
bodies may have been consumed by a
slower but similar process to the one
attributed to Lnetgert of Chicago,
who is said to have dissolved his
wife’s body in a tank of caustic solu-

of people followed the gendarmes to
the national palace, where the prison-
er was searched, and then, despite the
remonstrances of the army officers,
turned over to the civil authorities by
request of President Diaz, who was
opposed to having the man tried by
court-martial, and w-ho, in fact, ad-
vised a lenient policy. Accordingly
the prisoner was allowed his full con-
At night lie was taken, clad in a
straight jacket, to tho office of the in-
spector of police, which consists of
two rooms with two windows opening
on the street The prisoner was given
a mat to rest on and was carefully
guarded. Near at hand, in an adjoin-
ing npartment, were four officers of
tlie secret service. As Arroyo lay on
the mat he conversed with one of the
officers who had known him for years.
He was asked how he could have come
to make tho murderous assault on the
president, knowing, as he did, how
severe the law would deal with him,
and especially as ho had studied the
law. Arroyo manifested a cynical
indifference, and declared he had in-
tended to stun the president and then,
taking the president's small sword, to
Suddenly, while the two were con-
versing, and the prisoner was smok-
ing a cigarette, the tramping of many
feet on the stairs leading up to the
floor on which tho office is situated

rushed to the scene, but did not tire
on the crowd, fearing they might kill
some of tlie comrades of the police in-

with firing shots from the windows,
thus calling together the polico ou
neighboring corners, who were or-
dered to prevent any persons leaving
the city building.
Meantime, In tho room above,
frightful tragedy had been enacted.
Many knives were plunged into the

Over twenty arrests have been made,

Arroyo had been in prison several
times, on one occasion for shooting a

St. Joski’II, Mo., Sept 17. — Seven
years ago William Jones, a farmer in
this county, drew n eousiderable sum
in tlio Louisiana lottery. Tlie money
was claimed by the members of a club
to which lie belonged, and lias since
boen on deposit in a bank bore, the
subject of litigation. Jones’ reason
became dethroned on account of the
trouble in which the money involved
him, and to-day lie was sent to the
asylum, a raving maniac.
Ciiahrox, Neb., Sept 1R.—Three
masked highwaymen entered the post-

yesterday morning between a Midland

accident occurred near Basalt, fifty
miles west of Lcadvillo.
Vkrsaii.i.ks, Ind., Sept. Hi. — For
years Die farmers of the county have
been tho victims of a law less band.
Farmers would come into town with a
bunch of cattle or a load of farm pro-
ducts, and the next morning would be
found along the roadside suffering
from w-ounds and minus the proceeds
of their sale. Old German farmers
wero visited, and both men aud wo-
men subjected to tortures. Aged Ger-
msn women were forced to stand upon
red hot stoves to compel them to dis-
close tlie hiding place of treasures.
Arrests were made, but it was seldom
llu*t conviction followed.
During the past w-eek robberies had
increased alarmingly. On last Satur-
day word was received by the sheriff
from one of the band that the store of
Wooley Bros., at Correct, Ind., ten
miles from here, was to be entered,
and tho sheriff arranged that his in-
formant should accompany them, and,
witli five deputies, went to the place.
Sheriff Hushing concealed himself in
the cellar, while Ills deputies were
stationed at a convenient distance
outsidn. Shortly after midnight tho
robbers reached the store, and Clifford
Gordon aud tlie sheriff's informant
broke into the building.
Just as Gordon stepped inside the
sheriff seized him. llolh drew revol-
vers and began firing. Bert Ansoms,
another of the robbers, joined in the
fusilude, while the deputies went to
tho assistance of the sheriff. Some
thirty shots wero fired, the sheriff was
shot through the hand and Gordon
was shot several times. Gordon nnd
Ansoms succeeded in escaping and
came to Osgood, where they wero nr-
The robbers had driven out to the
place in n buggy belonging to Lyle
Levi, and from information subse-
quently gathered it was learned that
tho robbery had been planned at tho
home of William Jenkins. Tlio two
latter were arrested as accessories.
All were taken to the jail at Ver-
sailles. Henry Schuller, 24 years, wns
put in jail for robbing the barber shop
at Osgood lust week. Levi was 57
years of age, Gordon 22, Ansoms 30,
When it became known tliat the
robbers were in jail it was quietly
suggested by the farmers who had
been robbed that “justice” be sum-
marily dealt to the prisoners.
At 1 o’clock this morning horsemen
from all quarters dismounted on a hill-
side near Versailles and about 400 men
marched into the town. The jail wns
in clinrge of William Kcnitan, Sheriff
Bushing's brother-in-law. the former
beiug at home on account of his in-
jury. In front of the jail is the resi-
ldcneo proper, and tliero Keiiuun,
llobert Barnett, William Block and
Winsett, deputies, were sleeping.
Shortly before 2 o clock there was a
knock at tlie door, and when Kcnnan
and the others opened it three masked
men put revolvers to their lieads and
ordered them to turn over the keys.
This they did and tlie mob filed into
the jail. Levi, Jenkins aud Shulter
were upon tlie lower floor, while Gor-
don and Andrews were in the upper
tier. Levi aud Jenkins and Shulter
showed fight and the former was shot
through tlie breast, while the skulls
of tho two latter were crushed with
Hopes were in readiness ami the
lynchers adjusted n noose around Die

and hands and then the inarch began.
They were not carried, but, with sev-
eral men at tlio end of eaeli rope, were
dragged 200 feet to an elm tree, where
their bodies were suspended. It is
■aid Levi. Jenkins and Shulter were
dead before they reached the place.
Death resulted from hanging in the
cases of Gordon nnd Ansoms
None of the citizens seem to deplore
the action of tlie mob, bnt upon the
contrary tlie Imaging of three or four
more members of tho gang is being
talked of. No troops have been asked
