It taxes all in- heritances, -both lineal and collateral, and al) gifts made In anticipation of death 'and IB a great revenue producer. The tax Is lower or higher, as the degree of relationship is near or far., While I consider enormous fortunes accumulated a menace to good gov ernment, I do, not see any way to tax one class of property or property holders out of proportion to artotheT class.

Others have met the had not the mob Iti Its recklessriess so wrecked the jtft- that fourteen- prisoners escaped. There Is good believe that the lj nched men were innocent of the crimes c: larged against: them. When the mob finally dispersed this morning, it was with threats'to continue olence against the negroes. During the intense- race feeling has been shown. To-night three companies of State mil- itia, .sent by Gov. Folk, assisted'by 250 deputy sheriffs, are keeping order In the reets. Three more companies of mllltla a re on the way here, and; It Is believed tl mt they will be needed. Efforts are already under way to prose- cite the men in the mob. Goy.

The lynching of the third nefcro was an afterthought on the part of the mob. After it had seen the bodies of the no groes Duncan and Copeland burned in a big fire a man Jumped on the balcony of the'electric light tower on which the e a'tue ojf Justice stands and yelled: "Ladles and gentleirien, there is an- other man up in that Jail who killed old nian Rouark.

Mr. was th  rope held and several persons made Its work sun; by shooting irtto the body. Then 'many members of the mob rushed back to the jail to find Bud Kane, the other negro accused of the Rouark mur- der. They then learned of the escape of the fourteen prisoners. They returned to the .light tower and helped to burn the body of Allen. Mayor-elect Blain then addressed the crowd .and got them to dis- perse. i Negroes oh the streets were hooted by whites, and in many cases crowds gath- ered to attack them. Many firearms were sold. A great crowd of negroes gathered on tho public square to-night and re- fused to disperse at the command of the deputies. It was feared there-would be a fight, but the arrival of .the first com- pany of :the militia this evening resulted in the dispersal of the negroes. It is pretty well established that Horace Duncan arid 'James Copeland. the two ne- groes who were first lynched, did not commit the assault upon Miss Mabel Ed- wards.'of which they were accused. MJss Edwards positively failed to identify them yesterday, and the negroes' employers proved an alibi for them. They would ,have been released In a day or so, after the excitement had cooled down.- In the same way there Is every reason to believe that Allen was innocent of the murder of Rouark. The police believe that the cririiejms committed by Cane, the negro who escaped from the Jail. i Prosecuting Attorney Roscoe Patterson of Greene County said to-night: T" Every man implicated in this das- tardly outrage whose name I am able to learn will be punished to the full extent of the law.

This appeal, it Is declared, will be backed by a petition signed by hundreds of the best citizens of this community. The better classes bitterly resent the outrage, and wish to see every lyncher punished. It la reported that Sheriff Homer was wnrnedyeBterday 'afternoon that a mob ,was being formed to attack the jail and lynch' the there, but that he failed to take any precautions. It has been intimated that Gov. Folk will have Jthe Sheriff impeached. Sheriff Homer to-night gave out a. state- ment denying responsibility for the lynch- ings. and declaring he could- not have averted them In any way. He says there hvere men and boys in the mob, and flf he had fired upon them, he w.ould have killed some without doing any good'. I He admits he received a warning from 'the Chief of Police during the afternoon, ibut he did not 'believe there would be an attack upon the Jail, as there had been many wild rumors 'afloat, and so he did not; tfwear In extra deputies or ask for troops. v When the mob broke into his residence and began smashing .the furniture and breaking windows, he .explains, his wife and children fainted, and while he wao 'getting them to a place 'of safety the jmob broke in to 'the jail. .His wife is flow in a critical condition from the shock.

A live wire attached to a new incubator heated by electricity cost two lives early yesterday morning: near Croton Falls, Westohester of Daniel Jeungst, Jr., and his mother, who died trying to save him. f Daniel Jeungst, Jr., with his father and mother, lived far removed froni their nearest neighbors. Their farm is a large one, and for some time they have dabbled In .chicken raising. They used several styVes of incubators, with varied success. Recently the son determined to secure a patent affair advertised to hatch BOO chickens at a time by electricity. The incubator was bought and set up last week. The father is a relative of the Jeungst brothers, who operate the electric plant which' lights Croton Falls. When lie told his relatives what he intended doing they readily agreed to furnish him with tho necessary power. A wire was .'strung from tho electric plant to the chicken houses, and on Sat- urday the thing was ready. The son, who knew something about electricity, experi- mented with the various switches and controllers 'until he felt he undery stood them.. Throughout his experiments Mrs. Jeungst, his mother, was with him. She was much Interested In the success of the undertaking, as well as 'deeply devoted to her son. On Saturday afternooir 600 eggs were placed in the and'the cur- rent was turned "on-a, full volts. Several times In the early evening they went out to the chicken house -to see that everything was w.prklng as it should, and before retiring they agreed to get up at 3 o'clock.and.make another inspection. It was the first trial, and they wished to .take no chances. When p o'clock came mother and son dressed quietly, so as not to disturb the elder Jeungst. It was very dark, and- Mre, Jeungst took a lamp-along that'her son might bo able, to see how to work. Just what happened in the chicken, house'will never be known.
