KANSAS GIVES AN 1894 BOOM TO
A Recent Mnrdrr the. Incitement to tlie
Act Twnty Men Do the .fob mill No
One Interferes Hullits 1'lrvtt Into tho
llndlr or tho Vkthus.
HUbSELi-JCiin., Jim, 15. A mob of about
twenty mra entered tliu jiill here, took out
J. U. Burton, William (Jay and his sou,
.Tolm Uay, and hung thu trio to a small
railroad bridge a short distance oast of
tho railroad station. About midnight tho
residents of thu north part of tho town
heard n party, of llfteeh or twenty horse
men come In from thu north, who left their
horses at tho stock yards, whero plnnswero
arranged and the mob proceeded U tho
Jail. A few citizens who hnppeiied to bo
out late noticed tho suspicious actions of
the mob, but were powerless to thwart the
puroso of such n determined baud of
a. armed men, and watched tho proceedings
frome a mfe distance. No ofllcers were
aroused or even were aware of what was
going on until caily morning, bo quiet
were tho actions of thu mob.
Ordors wero given by signs and obeyed
without a word being spoken. Tho Jail is
a small wooden building surrounded by an
eight-foot board fence. In tho Jail were
two steel cells in which tho prisoners wero
confined. Guards wero placed about the
jail, and It was but. thu work of a moment
for the balance of thu mob to gain entrance
to tho jail building. About this time llur
ton gavo a few loud yells and askrd what
they wanted with him. Thu masked mob
began to break oil tho locks of thu jail with
sledgehammers. It was but u fow minutes
before tho thrco prisoners wero taken out
and to the bridge selected for the lynching
Finished Their Work With lait.
Hopes were placed around their nocks
and each given a chaneuto speak, llurton
said he could tell lots about his connection
with stealing cattle, selling whisky and
other things, but when asked to tell about
tho Dinning murder, replied: "No, sir."
Young Clay made u prayer and Miitl llurton
had killed Dinning with an ax. Old man
flay said: "Wo were lod Into this." Tho
lsader of tho lynchers then clapped his
hands thrco times and quick iua flash all
thrco wero pushed off the bridge. Tho
(Jays evidently died from strangulation,
but tho nooso on Burton's neck slipped
around up over his chin And ho was hoard
to breathe heavily for thu moment, when
several shots were tired into his noiiy.
Kach of tho others also had a bullet ijcut
Intohlin. Tho party then quietly dispersed.
The crime for which tho men wero
lynched was the killing of Fred Dinning
in July last on tho llurton placo about
twenty miles northeast of this city. In
quiries regarding u draft payable to Din
ning and his mysterious disappearance led
to an Investigation and tho arrest of Bur
ton. When closely questioned as to thu
whereabouts of Dinning llurton said he
had gone to Oklahoma with a young man
named Gay. A few weeks ago youug (lay
returned and was at oncu arrested. Then
followed a number of confessions, which
differed materially as to details anil tho lo
cation of the body, butshowed conclusively
that each had participated in the crime,
Pretended to Have a Ilreuin.
After several fruitless efforts to find tho
body as located by tho Gays, llurton pie
tended to havo a dream In which thu spot
whero Dinning was buried was revealed to
him, and that, after the dream, he remem
bered when plowing to havo seen a sjiot
that would Indicate a grave, which taken
in connection with his dream convinced
him that he could locate thu Ixidy. In com
pany with olllcers llurton was taken to
that part of tho county and thu body was
found. Tho skull had been crushed with
h blunt Instrument. At thu coroner's in
quest a verdict wasreudered finding that
Dinning had been murdered by William
Gay, and that John Gay and Iiurtou were
Tho motive of the killing nrpears to have
been to obtain property valued at SWO or
MOO. Doubtless ouo of tho causes that led
to the mob's action was thu uxlstenco of an
organized gang of which these parties were
supposed to bo members, and as llurton
was ono of the leaders among them It
would bo easy to procure testimony to
clear them. Stockmen have been suffering
from tho depredations of this gang for sov
ural years past and it was not considered
safo for any person to cause thu arrest and
conviction otany member ot tho gaug.

THAT HAWAIIAN BOTHERATION.
Hole Mn.vs "Not If I Know Mynelf," and
Thrrn tim Are.
' Wasiiimmon', Jan, IB. Possibly In view
of t he v illume of t he dispatches, etc., which
It enclosed, Picslilent Cleveland made his
nicssap. to congress accompanying the
Hawaiian correspondence ery brief. 1t
simply said lu efl'ei t, "Volt want tho docu
ments; here thev aie, except Stevens' No.
70 of Oi toiler, 1N, and Willis's No. 11 of
November, I WW." The onu of most Impor
tance Is Dole's leply to the reipiest mndo
thiough Willis that he should step down
and out. Ills a lint refusal to do so ami
an eiiially fiat declaration that LTn(io.Siuu
has nothing to do with (license,
lie denies that thu United .States govern
ment was lu any sense mndu arbitrator
nw of lourso leiterates tliu ftcqtiuut
denials that Minister Stevens had any
thing to do with tho revolution or assisted
ll lu any way and in a loin,' argument
proves to his own satisfaction that (he an
ue.xers aro all right and President Cleve
land and Secretary Gresham all wrong. In
thu dispatch to Willis announcing that
his work lu tho matter of Queen Mil's re
storation Is completed uud has been well
and faithfully done, Secretary Oreshatn
combats the Idea prevalent liinimg annex
ers that Cleveland considers himself ap
pointed technical arbiter by Ihn acts of
tho provisionals ami tjueeii 1,111 at thu
time of tho revolution.
Ho says no such Idea was entertained
nor has Willis given expression to such nu
ide.i. Tliu president's position was that
theipiecu had Is-eu deposed thiough thu
moral if not maU'rlal lulluence of tho
United States thiough Stevens and that It
was the moral right and duty of Ihn presi
dent to try and iiiaku things as they weru
before Stevens bad done bis work, as al
leged. Not being able to do this by
moral suasion thu president turns tho
matter over to congress and Willis be
comes an ordinary minister at a foreign
Thu most interesting part of thofcorre
sponilence is that recounting the "time of
It" that Willis had with the dusky iiiceu
when hu proposed to her that Dolu et al.
should not. suffer for their action. I.llluo
kalaul did not Intimate. Shu just said
right out that she would have each onu of
their heads as soon as she obtained power;
tiiat they wero all traitors, and thu law
provided for their cases. It took somo tall
talk by her less vindictive friends to get
her to agree to oven let, Dole et al, live on
the Islands, but she finally did so as re
ported heietofore lu these dispatches.
Willis does not havo much of an opinion
ot thu queen's advisers with thn exception
ot a couple or so ami evidently would no
nuannexer himself If thu question came
up in what hu considered an legitimate
and honorable manner and thu "people"
ot thu islands wanted it,
Thu latest report is that l.llliiokalanihas
thrown up tliu sponge entirely ami will
sue the United States for bleach of faith.
This comes from thu islands via Sail Fran
cisco. Still another icport Is that I.llluo
kalaul may close thu eiiu bydylng sudden
ly, asshu has valvular disease ot thu heart,
which has recently been much worse than
