nearly every one agreeing :hat the evidence

and gave way to tears aud race, saving she

This excited the crowd and they began to

The popular excitement culminated at about
9 o'clock in the lynchiug ot Peterson by au in-j

There is every reason to belisve that Peter

wreaked vengeance on the wrong man. Mis
