ST. PAUL , April 28. At nbout 1
o'clock this morning n pnrty of masko (
men appeared nt the jail in Minneapolis
apolis and demanded the surrender to
them of Frank MoManus , the tramp
who brutally mutilated the 4 year old
child , Nina Spear , yesterday. The
sheriff wa § made a prisoner by the
mob but refused to divulge the where
nbouts of McManus. The mob thoi :
made iv thorough search of the jail ,
breaking open every cell on the liral
floor without finding the prisoner ,
They then ascended to the floor
above nnd repeated the ceremony of
breaking open the cell doora until Mo
Manus waa found. The latter was
taken to the house of the victim ,
whore ho wna fully identified. Without
further ceremony the mob took Mo
Manus to a tree in front of the High
school building and hanged' him at
quarter past 4 this morning. Before
McMnnus was strung up ho
confessed the terrible "crime , lie
was n tramp L'C years
old , nnd came from Boston. Excite
ment ran very high during the night ,
both in Minneapolis and St. Paul , und
public sentiment ia indisputably wi
the men who thus administered justice
to the author of one of the most atro
cious crimes in the annals of Minnesota
seta The child victim of McManus
is in a precarious condition , and it is
doubtful of her chances of recovery.
The tramp , Frank McManm , juat
before death g.xvo his name as James
Crowley and said his mother , Nancy
Ann Crowley , lived in South Boston ,
One who knew McManu , however ,
positively identified him ns Frank
MoManus , a professional burglar who
had served two terms in the Massa
chusetts stnto prison. Hu died game ,
showing not the slightest trepidation ,
And declared the crime was committed
while ho was drunk.

'Mr DfcAu Sin Inthcfoxami | nation lei
yesterday anil immediately pro- ia
oding , provocation so gross and per- iami
tistont was offered mo by the witness nit
testifying before the committee that of
was led to use language which COI ;
though unparliamentary , did prop- ho
arly describe his conduct und my ap tin :
preciation of liis character , a
i'ho witness under examination ad
liad seen fit to criticise questions
Addressed by mo on a former occasion ch
another witness , first , because quo- ill
Lation ' marks appeared in the printed r0i
record of such questions , the rcsponsibe
bility for which I disavowed , calling do
attention at the samq time to the fact an
that the form of question negatived Qd
idea that I was quoting from those Op
dispatches ; and secondly , because of
interpretation placed by mo on the
dispatches. This was properly a mat
for argument and the witness had
every opportunity to use and explain ca
construction of the dispatches pe
signed by him , Ho chose , however , an
insist on a change of my opinion re oj
specting the moaning of the dispatches st
and when I declined to make the in
change ( my belief being positive and 01
well founded ) , ho thought proper on a 01P
public occasion to use language perso ? r
nally offensive It was my desire and lect
purpose yesterday t" > put an end to ctm
further continuance of theao m
personalities before the commit
tee , and I therefore referred to less
public treatment there of myself. h
Having been surprised into making a a ,
reply in the presence of the committee ir
t n character such ns it BOO ins
to my deliberate judgment
would have been elsewhere
under the cir.cumstnncor , entirely
proper , nnd which expresses my opin
ion perfectly , nothing further in the
nnturo of privnto or personal notice
of the witncuft is required of mo.
These unparliamentary personalities
should have no place on the records
of the committee , nnd I cheerfully
Icavo the method of dealing with them
