treatment by a physician. Dr. W
W McKenzie wa3 summoned, but
before he came Boyden left and has
! not since been seen.
After the door to Boyden's cell
had been opened an effort was made
to unlock the dcor to the cell in
which Kimmons was confined, but
ihe key refused to work, and it is
said was dropped and l?:t, and the
heat and smoke drove the officers
out of the building. The hre com.
panics promptly responded to the
alarm and soon had two lines of
hose stretched to the building; and
in the meantime parties with axes
were cutting into Kimmons' cell.
This took time and the building
was burning rapidly. Owing to its
nature the fire was hard to control
and it was ten minutes or more after
the water was turned on before the
building could be entered. The
door was then broken open and sev
eral men rushed in the room and
brought Kimmons out.
The man was unconscious and
was hurriedly taVen to Klut'z's
diug store, where several physicians
did all they could to relieve him.
He was badly burned and had ini
haled a large quantity of smoke and
heat, and his recovery was thought

a widow and four children. The
remains were taken to Grace church
this afternoon for burial.
While conscious yesterday Mr.
Kimmons advised the friend around
him to jive right. lie had not done
as he should, for which he was veiy
sorry, but it was too late for him to
reform, as his hours were numbered.
This warning from the death b d
should be heeded.
While the origin of the fire ih not
known it is universally believed
that Boyden was the caase of it.
The fire started on the Inside of the
cell in which he was confined and
there had been r.o fire in the build

he filed the building hoping to es

Dr. White, the '"Insln."
Dr. ,.9me3 White, wno stands
charged with a fiendish insult to the
half-witted daughter of Mr. Baibee,
an account of which was in these
columns, is now in the Rowan jail
for safe keeping. The authorities
of this county were made to believe,
by a "sham" telegram from Harris
burg, that a lynching beeseveral
hundred strong, waa headed towards j C08t of tn5 euard that watched the
concord last Thursday night. Sheriff J11 1 nnrsday night wmle Dr. White
Sims had the doctor taken to the I was secreted in che Precbyteriau
have been retained to aaist the
prosecution. The trial will, of
course, take place in Stanly county.
Mr. Baroee said to a reporter, and
he talked mighty square and frnk
jamid all his sadness and pain, '-all I
want is that justice be meted out."
Inasmuch as the case belongs to
Sfcauly, that county will have all the
CJ3t to foot up, among them the
Presbyterian church and summoned
a guard to stay at the jail to receive
the lynching bee or do whatever was
necessary. About 4 or 5 o'clock
Friday moruiug he had Dr, White
taken back to jiil, where he remain
ed until Friday evening'3 train, on
whic'i the 3heriif took him to Salis
bury, where, according to the World,
he is now in jail.
Quite naturally Dr. White insists
on his innocence, claiming that he
is persecuted, etc. Being rather in
telligent and gifted at speech he
made some believe his side of the
story. Oa the ether hand, from
responsible parties, from the tearful
atoryof the young girl's parents and
the testimony of Drs, Jerome and
Hartsell, who immediately after the
alleged crime were called in and ex
amined the young girl, a very dark
case is claimed against the prisoner.
But The Standard is not . trying
Some say the Magistrate'3 trial
was a farce; some say it was fair, the
prisoner having all the witnesses he
It is alledged that while on trial,
shot guns and pistols and other
weapons were pointed at him. This
The offense was committed in
Stanly county and the spot where the
crime is said to have been committed
shows eyidence of struggle. The
trial wa3 in Stanly, The magistrate
sent him, the prisoner, with the com
mitment endorsed by two Cabarrus
magistrates, to the Cabarrus jail. It
ia said that the proceedings were out
of order; that the sheriff had no
right to receiye a prisoner from the
court of a magistrate of another
county, but the sheriff knows his
business and took him in and has
thus far prevented his lynching.
There seems, from the bt&t in
formation we can set, but little j
ground for believing that thre w-:s
any strong probabilites of lynching.
While a namber said he onght io be,
e'e, there was not any concerted ac
tion, we are told it takes a leader to
lead a mob. While all this talk
took place before and about
trial, there was absolutely no danger
of it after the prisoner was brought
to town, not onlv beeaiue ih? mo I
It is indeed an ugly case and
since the affair the poor voun firl
has had two spasms, directly trace
able, the physicians say, to the
wrong done her.
Under such circumstances, with
this light," said a well informed
gentleman, a natiye of Ohio, "that
man would not reach a magistrate's
triiil in Ohio he would be lynched
at once." g
The Standard has printed all
the above for no other purpose than
to give the public what is claimed,
and because of the fct that the
word has gone out to the effect that
vve are a people to take the law into
out own hands. Such is not the
case. Cabarrus people don't lynch.
It is understood that bail will be
asked for Dr. White next Thursday
when Juuge Norwood opens court in
Salisbury. The prisoner claims
that he can eaisly give a 1000 bond.
Attorney Caldwell said that the
papers sent up by the magistrate do
not show what the man is jailed for,
whether for shooting a quail before
Noy. 15 or something eke.
