Cincinnati, December 31. The
remarkable scene of a man begging
and pleading for his life, claiming
fear of lynching, was witnessed in
Judge Buck waiter's court today.
The prisoner was A H Hamptoa,
alias Jackson, a -tall colored man, in
dicted in Marion county, Kentucky,
for shooting and wounding a farmer
who accused him of robbing his
Hampton tied to this city and was
arrested this morning. W W Penn
presented himself in court with
extiadition papers, in which there
was not a flaw. When Hampton
was brought into court his face ass
sumed a sickly hue and he trembled
so violently that he could hardly as
sume a standing position. Stretch
ing out his long gaunt arms to the
Judge he moaned: "Ob, Massa
Judge, don' send me to Kentucky.
1 aiut no coward, but dey wants to
lynch me. Dat's de way dey do
down dab. 1 geed em do it. Ise got
letters from my friends teilin me
dey wud string me up, Doan send
me back, Jedge, I'll have no chance."
Judge Buckwalter asked Mr. Penn
if he had heard of such threats.
'Yes sir," was the answer.
Then the court, with his finger,
poiuted at the deputy sheriff snd
said: "Four months ago I sent on
extradition papers a fugitive from
justice into Kentucky. He was
lynched soon after he left the traiu.
The authorities broke their word
with this court. The State of
Kentucky broke faith with her
sister State of Ohio in the protection
of human life. I wi.l not send this
man away from these courts until I
have a letter from your Governor
and from the presiding Judiie of
your district that Hampton's life
will not be placed in jeopardy, and
that he will be given a fair and im
partial trial." A mumur of ap
plause arose from the large crowa
present, Hampton was returned to

New York, Jan, 1. The Kev. Dr.
C H Parkhurst was seen this morn
ing at his home in regard to the in
terview with ex-Senator Piatt, ob
tained yesterday m Wilkesbarre, Pa,
in which Mr. Piatt is quoted as say
ing that he is inclined to think Dr.
Parkhursi's "head has become swol
len," and that the doctor should be
turned down because he has tried to
dictate to the Lexow committee. Dr.
Parkhurst - acknowledged he had
read the interview but would only
remark : "I can really say nothing
in regard to Mr. Piatt."
"Not even when he attacks you
and calls you had-swollen, and says
you have attempted to dictate to the
committee and should be turned
down ?" persisted the reporter.
"Ko; I have nothing to say.
