Their Home Near Cleveland
Rowan County, at an E-rlyHour
The Scene of the Crime was Near
Cleveland, in Rowan County.

Excitement Runs Very High.
Salisbury, July 14.— Rowan county
from center to circumference is stir
rod today as it has never been before.
The cause of this unusual excitement
is the murder of Isaac Lyerly, Mrs.
Isaac Lyerly, Janie Lyerly, and John
Lyerly, at their homo a short distance
from Cleveland this morning.
In the annals of blood-curdling crime
in North Carolina the murder of Mr.
Lyerly, his wife and children, stands
without a parallel.
Between one and two o'clock tnis
morning unknown brutes (for they can
not to be dignified by being called human
beings) entered the home of Mr. Lyerly
pud with a murderous axe dealt death
to four of his family.
. On entering tne room, which was
down stairs, the murderers first went
to the bed that was occupied by Mr.
Lyerly and his son. John nine years
old. Mr. Lyerly's skull was crushed
with a single blow and his brains
were scattered on the pillow. Another
blow crushed the skull of his son, who
was nestling close beside his beloved
The murderers then went across the
room to the bed where Mrs. Lyerly
and her daughters. Jane and Alice,
were sleeping. Two blows from the axe
instantly killed Mrs. Lyerly and her
daughter Janie. A third blow crushed
the skull of little Alice Lyerly, the
six year old daughter and the baby of
the family. While she was rendered
unconscious she was still living this
afternoon at three o'clock.
After . committing these fiendish
deeds the murderers set fire to the bed
011 which lay the bodies of Mr. Lyerly
and his son John and fled from the
A few moments after the bed cloth
ing became ignited Miss Mary Lyerly,

child, who was sleeping with her sister,
Miss Addie, in an upstairs room, be

tected the odor of smoke. Believing
that her home was on fire, she quickly
awoke her sister and rushed down
stairs in her parents room.
There a sight that beggars descrip
tion met her gaze. By the dim light!
of the burning bedding she saw the!
prostrate form of her father and little'
brother as they lay in pools of their
own blood. Casting her eyes to the
other side of the room, an equally
harrowing sight met* her gaze. There
her mother and little sister Janie lay
with their skulls crushed and blood
rushing from ugly wounds.
Close beside her mother, next to the
wall, was little Alics, cringing and
creening because of a murderous blow
that had been dealt by a merciless
hand. Seeing the father and mother,
sister and brother were all dead, she
picked up little Alice and ran from the
house. She was closely followed by her
sister, Addie the two taking the dying
child to the home of Mr. Philip Cook,
a half mile away.
The screams of the two young ladies
arroused Mr. Cook and- family and they
were immediately given entrance to his
home. They took the prostrate body of
little Alice into Mr. Cook's bed room.
While bending over her little form
the two daughters told in broken voices
of the horrible crimes that had been
committed at their home.
Mr. Cook immediately went to the
nearest neighbors and told them of
the crimes. Four or five gathered and
went immediately to the Lyerly home
When Mr. Cook entered the room in
which the bodies were, he says he saw
wftat he hopes never to see again. The
mother and little daughter were cold
in death, and their heads beaten almost
into a pulp. The same was true of Mr.
Lyerly and his little son. John.
Nothing could be done with the
bodies until the coroner viewed them,
so Mr. Cook and his friends kept vigil
during the remaining hours of the
As soon as the crime was known of
in Cleveland art that section, neigh
bors oommenced to swarm around the
house and dire threats were made on j
all hands against those who would 1
perpetrate such a hellish crime. Search-1
ing parties were immediately gotton up
and neighbors went here and there l
hoping to find some trace of the mur
derers. Word was sent to Salisbury,
Winston- Salem, Mooresville and to
Charlotte, asking that bloodhounds be
dispatched in order to trace the crimi
nals. People went about in a frenzied
state of mind, hardly knowing what
course was best to pursue.
A message was sent, to ihe Govern
or asking that he use his good offices
to secure the bloodhounds at the peni
tentiary and have them sent to the
scene at once. Private Secretary Ar
lington answered this telegram, saying
'that dogs were not available, but that
I in the absence of the Governor a pro
clamation would be issued offering
$350 reward for the arrest and convic
tion of the guilty parties.
Suspected Parties Arrested.
Around the jail in Salisbury this
afternoon excitement runs high. Of
ficers from Cleveland have just put
behind the bars three negro men and
two negro women who are suspected
of either knowing of the crimes or
having been directly connected. These
are Mitchell Graham ana wife, Jack
Dellingham and wife and John Jor
dan. While the officers are reticent,
they declare that strong evidence has
been secured and that because of
this evidence the five negroes have
been landed in jail.
It seems that the strongest clue
that the officers have been able to
secure is against Mitchell Graham
and his wife. It is said that Graham
i? the man who made the threat that
Mr. Lyerly, "Might cut his wheat, but
would never live to eat it."
The latest news from little Alice
Lyerly is that her condition is ex
itremely critical and that the wound
lin the head may prove fatal at any
moment. The attending physicians
hold out little or no hope for her
STATE OFFERS REWARD.
Private Secretary Offers $350 Reward,
Governor Glenn Being absent at At
Raleigh N. C., July 14. —Governor
Glenn received a telegram this
morning from R. R. Mulliken, a tele
graph operator at Baroer Junction to
the effect that about three o'clock this
morning an unknown person entered
the home of Mr. Ike Lyerly, one of the
most peaceable and respected citizens
and murdered Lyerly his, wife, and
three youngest children who were all
sleeping on the first floor.
The murderer then set the house on
fire, and fled. The smoke and flames
awoke Lyerly's two eldest daughters
who were sleeping up stairs. They
rushed down in time to get the bodies
of the murdered parents, brothers and
sister and saved them from burning.
There is no clue to the murderers but
the citizens are scouring the counttry
Mr. Mulliken appealed to the Gover

Orders were issued from the Gover
nor's office for the sending of the
hounds from the penitentiary, but it
was found that the institution has only

they are at this time on tne Halifax
county state farm. Although unable to
provide the hounds a proclamation was
promptly issued from the Governor's
office offering $350 reward for the ar

MURDERERS USED CLUBS.
The Five Victims Were Clubbed to
Death it is Thought.
Winston-Salem, July 14. —Isaac Ly
erly, his wife and three youngest chil
dren were murdered in their
home one mile east of Bar
ber's Junction, between 1 and
2 o'clck this morning by unknown
parties, who afterwards robbed the
house and then set fire to the bed on
which Mr. and Mrs. Lyerly were killed.
The oldest daughters, who were
sleeping upstairs, were awakened and
rushed down just in time to extinguish
| the flames and save the home from de
It is thought the robbers killed their
I victims with clubs. Lyerly was a
wealthy merchant and farmer, and his
family is recognized as one of the
best in that section.
As soon as the news of the murder
and robbery was received here Deputy
Sheriff Hutchins went to the scene
with bloodhounds. Later, a report was
received that two negroes had been ar
rested. One is quoted as saying a few
days ago, after Mr. Lyerly had refused
to allow him to cut his wheat, "that the
old man may cut his grain, but he'll
never live to eat it."
Governor Glenn received a message
from Barber's Junction appealing to
him for help. There were no blood
hounds to be sent from the penitentia
ry. The Governor issued a proclama
tion offering a reward of $350 for the
arrest of the murderers.

Winston-Salem, Julyl4—lsaac Ly

murdered in their home one mile east
of Barbers Junction between 3 and 4
o'clock this morning by unknown par
ties who afterward robbed the house
and then set fire to the bed on which
Mr. and Mrs. Lyerly were killed.
Two older daughters who were sleep
ing up stairs were awakened and
rushed down just in time to extinguish

It is thought that the robbers killed
the five parties with clubs. Mr. Lyer
ly was a wealthy merchant and farmer
and the family was recognized as one
of the best in that section.
As soon as the news of the murder
and robbery was received here deputy
sheriff Hutcheri was requested to go to
the scene with his blood hounds. He
left on a special train at six o'clock
with his dogs.
I Later —A report came that two ne
groes had been arrested. One of these
was quoted as saying a few days ago,
after Mr. Lyerly had refused to allow
him to cut his wheat, that "the old
man may cut his grain, but he'll never
live to eat it."
Salisbury, July 14. —This morning
between 2 and 3 o'clock burglars en
tered the home of Mr. Isaac Lyerly, of
Cleveland, this county, a village on
the Western railroad 11 miles from
Salisbury. Mr. Lyerly, his wife and
three children were murdered.
A message at 3 o'clock summoned
Sheriff Julian to the scene and the
officers and a large posse are on the
hunt tor the murderers.
' Excitement runs high here, where
Mr. Lyerly was well known. He was
about 65 years old, a prosperous farm
er and a business man, and one of the
best known citizens of the county.
Details are meagre at this hour,
8:00 a. in.
The five negroes who are suspected
of being implicated in the murder of
the Lyerly family, were brought to
Charlotte Saturday night by Sheritf
Julian of Rowan county. The names
of the negroes are: Mitchell Graham,
George Irwin, John Gillespie, Jack Dil
lingham and Henry Gillespie.
Sheriff Julian, on his arrival at the
county jail turned the prisoners over
to Deputy Sheriff E. O. Johnston who
at once put them behind the bars.
All five of the negroes were fright
ened in an inch of their lives. All
the way from Salisbury to Charlotte
they were trembling and crouching
beneath the car seats for fear some
one would do them harm. The trip
to this city was made without incident,
though Sheriff Julian thought he would
encounter trouble at the station in
Salisbury. He managed to get the
prisoners on the "blind" side of the
cars and got them aboard the second
class car without any one knowing
of their presence.
Yesterday afternoon a News man
went to the county jail and had a
long conversation with the five pris
oners. All, with the exception of
Mitchell Graham, declined to talk
very much. Graham, however, was
very conversant and seemed both
willing and eager to tell his side of
He declares that he knew nothing
of the wholesale murder of the Lyerly
family until a Mr. Barber informed
him of the crime about 5 o'clock Sat
urday morning. He says that he was
in bed at his home when Mr. Barber
passed along the road and yelled for
him. He went to the door of his
house and Mr. BarDer asked him if
he had heard what had happened down
at old man Lyerly's home. He told
him he had not and then Mr. BarDer
told him of the horrible crime that
had been committed during the night.
Graham says that he was starred
and hardly knew what to say or think.
He dressed as quickiy as possible
and went down to the Lyerly home,
which is a distance o? about three
quarters of a mile from hi* house.
He was standing out in the yard talk
ing with one or twc other negroes
about the affair when he was arrested.
John Gillespie and Henry Gillespie,
step-sons of Mitchell Graham, were
plowing in a field about two miles
from the Lyerly home when an officer
arrested them. Both of these boys
are bright mulattoes and have rather
good faces. They, of course, declare
they kuow nothing of the crime ana
claim that they can establish the fact
that they remained at their home from
8 o'clock Friday night until 5 o'clock
Jack Dillingham, another one of the
five is a rather squatty negro and much
darker than either of the Gillespie
boys. He has piercing black eyes and
there is something about his appear
ance that denotes meanness. There is
nothing, however, in the evidence, so
far accumulated, that will directly
•connect Dillingham with the crime.
It is known, however, that Dillingham
is very intimate with Mitchell Graham
and this fact may mitigate against
George Irwin, the fifth negro now in
the county jail here will not speak of
the crime at all. He seems to be per
fectly satisfied to listen to the story
that Mitchell Graham tells. He, of
course, denies that he is in any way
implicated in the crime. He is a
black, swarthy negro and there is noth
ing attractive about him.
It is not known uow long the five
negroes will remain in the Mecklen
burg jail. Some think that the best
policy would be for Rowan county to
have them transferred to the State
penitentiary at Raleigh. There they
would be perfectly safe while here
there is a doubt as to their safety.

Drowned Herself and Children.
Union, S. C., July 14—Has Mrs.
Harriett Hoburn drowned herself and
two children in Tyger river, as the
result of being beaten and shot by a
party of white men at her home near
Coleraine last v/eek?
It seems that Union county has an
other sensational affair of the white
The first news reached here a day
or two ago, and the following seems
to be the facts as secured from many
different. and apparently responsible
Mrs. Harriett Hoburn, aged about 35
years, with a boy about eleven and a
little girl about five, have been living
on Linder Carrier's place near Cole
raine since May Ist. She is said to
have been originally from Texas, and
had lost all she had by fire about ten
years ago and again had everything de
stroyed in the June flood of 1903. As
to her character, several persons say
she was "straight," others say they
know nothing against her. '
On the nigth of July 3rd some white
men, some say two, others say seven,
went to her home and called her to the
door. When she opened it, she was
caught, and evidently shot at, because
she is said to have been shot through
the cheek and through the shoulder,
and the house is said to show bullet
holes. The men then thrashed her
terribly, and also her young boy. It
is said one man burst a quart bottle
over her head, besides beating her
with thorn bushes. It is reported that
after being beaten, she was driven
from her house, and with her children
forced to stay out in the rain all
night, and that the next morning
when she went to breakfast she was
again set upon and run off.
It is reported tnat a responsible
man saw her making her way with
the children toward Burnt Factory and
Acorn pond on Tyger river, and that
asked if she had Jost her way, as she
was on a plantation road, she replied
in such a manner that some think she
was intending to drown herself and
children. Anyway, so far as can be
learned, she has not been seen since,
though Linder Carrier, on whose
place she worked, sent out several per
sons to loolt for her, but they found
Mr. carrier told The News man over
the long distance 'phone today that so
far as he knew there was nothing
against the woman's character; that
he had sent men out looking for her,
but the'search was fruitless, and that
he would give SSO for sufficient evi
dence to convict the person who per
petrated teh outrage on her.
