a committee of citizens of Ellisville.
Hartfleld was taken first to the of
fice of Dr. A. J. Carter, who after ex
aminations of gunshot wounds re
ceived when the fugitive made his
fight against capture, declared the
negro could not live longer than 24
hours. In the meantime a group of
silent men were piling cross tics and
] brush in a depression in the ground
near the railroad trestle. There was
no shouting. Arrangements appar
ently had been made days ago.
After Hartfleld had been identified
on being brought here, there were
quiet conferences. Members of the
committee circulated in the crowd.
Reports that there-would be a "burn
ing" at 5 o'clock gave way to. state
ment that there would be it "hang
ii? at the big gum tree." Hartfleld
was told what the crowd intended
! doing with him, but only repeated,
"You have the right man."
Confesses Act
From the doctor's office, Hartfleld
was taken to the street and faced the
crowd. "You have the right man,"
he reiterated. Then a noose found
I its way around his neck and the trip
j to the big gum tree was started, the
I crowd all silent.
Under this big gum tree Hartfleld
J forcibly detained his victim all of the
night of Sunday, June 15. It was
j under a limb of that same gum tree
I that he was hanged as soon as the
| rope could be pulled up by hundreds
I of hands.
I Then occurred the first demonstra
i tion. While the body was in its
death struggles, pistols were pro
! duced by men in the crowd and fired
| point blank at the swinging form. Be
fore the rope had been cut by bullets,
| burning faggots were thrown under
I the body and an hour later there was
! only a pile of ashes.
No arrests were made after lynch
'■ ing and to-day the little town is
I quiet.
Use Gas in Robbing
York County Hen Roosts
Mount Wolf, Pa., June 27.—The
j application of the science of war
! time, the gas attack, to such a
- peaceful pursuit as the robbing of
I hen roosts, is the new "stunt" intro
! duced by the "knights of the night."
| This latest method of securing an
! other man's hens without any
' noise, was introduced in the
| Druck Valley, near here, several
nights ago, when a raid was made
j on the hen house owned by William
j Fisher. The raid resulted in a net
| gain of probably upwards of 100
I choice hens for the thief. Observa-
I tion of the actions of the few hens
| left behind by the thief, gave rise to
i the theory that an anesthetic had
j been used to "quiet" the chickens
| and to render their removal übso-
I lutely noiseless.
Sags Visit to Europe Has Allowed Him to See the Damage
Wrought by War; Defends Slow Policy of Allies in
Arriving at Terms of Peace With Central Powers
' By Associated Press.
Paris, June 27. President Poin
care last night gave a dinner to
President Wilson- and all the dele
gates to the Peace Conference. Mrs.
Wilson accompanied the President.
Responding to an address made by
M. Poincare, President Wilson said:
"I thank you most sincerely for
the words that you have uttered. I
cannot preterxl, sir, that the pros
pect of going home is not very de
lightful to me, but 1 can say with
the greatest sincerity that the pros
pect of leaving France is very pain
ful to me.
"I have received a peculiarly g.en
erous welcome here, and it has been
pleasing for me to feel that the wel
come was intended nut so much for
myself as for the people whom I rep
resented. And the people of France
know how to give a welcome that
makls a man's heart glad. They
have a spontaneity about them, a
simplicity of friendship, which is al
together delightful.
Trip to France a T/osson
"I feel that my stay here, sir, has
enlightened both my heart and ray
mind. It has enabled me personally
to see the evidence of the suffering
and the sacrifices of France. It has
enabled me to come into personal
touch with the leaders of the French
people, and through the medium of
intercourse with them to understand
better, I hope, than I understood be
fore the motives, the ambitions and
the principles which actuate this
great nation. It has, therefore, been
to me a lesson in the roots of friend
ship in those things which make the
intercourse of nations profitable and
serviceable for all the rest of man
"Sometimes the work of the con
ference has seemed to go very slow
ly indeed. Sometimes it has seemed
as if there were unnecessary ob
stacles to agrreemer.-t; hut as the
weeks have lengthened I have seem
ed to see the profit that came out of
that. Quick conclusicfis would not
have produced that intimate knowl
edge of each other's mind which I
think has come out of these daily
"We have been constantly in the
presence of each other's minds and
motives and characters, and the
comradcsships which are based upon
that sort of knowledge are sure to
be very much more intelligent not
only, but to breed a much more inti
mate sympathy and comprehension
than could otherwise be created.
"These six months have been six
morvths which have woven new
fibers of connection between the
parts of our people. And something
more than friendship and intimate
sympathy has come out of this inter
Says Plan Will Broaden
"Friendship is a very good thing.
Intimacy is a very en-lightening thing.
But friendship may end with senti
ment. A new thing that has hap
pened is that we have translated our
common principles and our common
purposes into a common plan. When
we part, f.'e are not going to part
with a finished work, but with a
work one portion- of which is finished
and the other portion of which is
only begun.
"We have finished the formation
of the peace, but we have begun a
plan for co-operation which I be
lieve will broaden and strengthen as |
the years go by so that this grip of i
the hand that we have taken now
will need to be relaxed. We have
been and shall continue to be com
rades. We shall continue to be co
workers in tasks which, because they
are common, will weave out of our
sentiments a common conception of i
duty and a common conception of
the rights of men of every race and
of every clime. If it b|- true that
that has been accomplished, it is a
very great thing.
"As I go away from these soenes,
I think I shall realize that T have
been present at one of the most vital
things that has happened in the his
tory of the nations. Nations have
formed contracts with each other
before, but they never have formed
partnerships. They have associated
1 themselves temporarily, but they
[ have never before associated them
selves permanently.
"The wrong that was done in the
waging of this war was a great
wrong, but it wakened the world to a
great moral necessity of seeing that
it was necessary that men should
band themselves together in order
that such a wrong should never be
perpetrated again.
"Merely to beat a nation that was
wrong once is not enough. There
must follow the warning to all other
nations tjiat would do like thin-gs
that they in turn will be vanquished
and shamed if they attempt a dis
honorable purpose.
"You can see. therefore, sir, with
what deep feelings fhotje of us who
must now for a little while turn
away from France, shall leave your
shores; and though the ocean is
broad it will seem very narrow in
tho future. It will be easier to un
derstand each other than it ever
was before, and with the confident
intercourse of co-operation, the un
derstanding wilt be strengthened into
action, and action will itself educate
alike our purpose ant our thought.
"So, sir, in saying good-by to
France I'm only saying a sort of
physical good-by; not a spiritual
good-by. I shall retain in my heart
always the warm feelings which the
generous treatment of this great peo
ple has generated in my heart. And
I wish in my turn, sir, to propose,
as you have proposed, the continued
and increasing friendship of the two
nations, the safety and prosperity of
France, the closer and closer com
munion of free peoples, and the
strengthening of every influence
which instructs the mind and the
purpose of humanity.''
