Palestine, Tex., May 2S.-Tho negro rcplst, George- Kenney, was hanged today at just four minutes to 2 o'clock p. m. The execu- tion was public, some three thousand peo- ple of all ages, sexes, colors and conditions being present to witness his tailing off. The procession started from the Jail at just o'clock. The wagon carrying the pris- oner was followed by a mixed crowd of some thousand or more people. On arriv- ing at the scaffold the criminal was as- sisted to the ground and ascended the steps to the gallows with a firm tread. He spoke for about three minutes, protesting his In- nocence and warning the young of his race to lead a right life. Said he was at peace with his God, and was going straight to leaven. Urged all the negroes to vote for Henry Watts for Sheriff, bade good-live to all, whereupon the black cap was adjusted the noose put in place, and at 1-50 p m exactly the trap was sprung, and Kenney was dead. The fall was about seven feet, but failed to break ilia neck, and in twelve minutes he was pronounced lead and turned over to the colored un- dertaker. Besides Iccal officers.

He made his escape from a posse at tile but was captured near Grapeland at 9 o'clock next morning, after being desperately wounded In his effort to escape. Sheriff Henry Watts .'ind Deputy Don Barrett got possession of the prisoner and prevailed upon the assembled citizens to do no violence, but let the law take Its course. He was brought to Palestine end lodged In Jail. The business of the spring term of the court had been disposed of but no formal order of adjournment entered Judge Gooch recalled the grand jury, and the negro was immediately Indicted.
