Ted lurton Tells Remarkable
Stacy of Depredation,
Gives Names of Forty Members of the
Band and Makes Damaging Disclos
ures Regarding Killing of Captain
Ted Burton, self confessed night rhP
or, under arrest nt Tlptoiivllle, Tcnn.,
told a remarkable story of night rider
depredations In the vicinity of Koelfoot
Juke, confessing to the part he played
Jn the outrages which reached a culmi
nation In the putting to death of Cap
tain Quentln Rankin, a prominent at
torney of Trenton, Tenn., on the banks
of the lake a week ago, nnd implicat
ing men prominent In that section of
tho state. Of the number, he declared',
who had a part in the killing of Cap
tain Rankin, more than half are now
in custody at Camp Nemo, the military
base near Samburg.
While Burton denies that ho was
present when Captain Rankin wna put
to death, ho admits that It was through
information given by htm that tho
bnnd congregated and secured the at
torney whllo Ira stopped at the hotel
tit Walnut Log. According to Burton's
confession, Tom and Garret Johnson,
tinder arrest, and William Wilson, un
der bond In connection with another
raid, were the leaders of the lake
band. Burton declares that the first
part he played as a member of tho
night riders' band was when he aided
in the burning of a fish dock at Sam
burg and several weeks later was one
of a party which crossed thS county
line from the Reelfoot lake district
into the adjoining county of Lake and
whipped Justice of the Peace Winn,
an aged man.
Coming to tho killing of Captain
Rankin, Burton declared that tho night
before the lynching he went to Walnut
Log and there met James F. Carpen
ter, the attorney of Union City, at
whose solicitation Rankin and Judge
R. Z. Taylor; his associate la the West
Tennessee company, tho owners of the
land upon which the lake is situated,
came to the lake. It was stated that
tho visit of tho two men was to enter
Into a timber, deal with Carpenter.
After this conversation, Burton states
he communicated with the night rider
leaders and told of the intended visit
of the representatives of the land com
pany. On tho following night he saw
the two men ut supper at tho hotel,
but declares he left Walnut Log early
In the night and went out Into the
lake to fish. Ho states that he was
'fishing when he heard tho shots which
ended the life of Captuln Rankin, but
did not return to the shore for some
time. In the course of hla confession,
Burton gave' the names of no less than
forty members c the night riders.

managers, who declared Mr. Bryan

a normal Republican plurality of about
