has never had arjy love for him, and
Postmaster Bailey, who had a quarrel

he was inaugurated. All these are
present and others of less pronourjcpd

THE CAUSE OF THE TROUBLE.
Shot and Fatally Wounded Dr. J. Ford
Hodge Third Outrage of the Kind of
Which They Had Been Guilty A I
Terror to the Town.
By Telegraph tbthe Morning Star.
Tallulah, La., July 21. Five
Italians were lynched here last night
forlhe fatal wounding of Dr. J.
Ford Hodge. The dead men are of a
class which has been troublesome for
some time "and it is believed that they
had planned to kiirtha doctor. Some
of them, it is believed, have families
in Europe, but they have no relatives
here. The dead are: Frank Defatta,
Charles Defatta, Joe Defatta, Sy. Def
ferrcch and John. Cereno. ,
For several weeks a lot of goats te-
lone-iuc to Frank Dafatta have been
sleeping and running on the gallery
of Dr. Hodges omce and residence.
The doctor, on numerous' occasions,
requested ih owner to keep his goats
penned up, but he. wouici not uo it,
and on the night of the 19th Dr.
Hodge shot one Of them. , Early next
morning Frank Defatta came to Dr.
Hodge's office and said to the doctor:
You sheet my goat, now you nau
better shoot me."
The Dr. ordered him to leave and De
fatta left mumbling something, which
the doctor did not understand. Dr.
Hodge took his meals at the residence
of a Mr Kauffmann and had to pass
Joe Defatta's shop in going there.
About sundown last evening the doc
tor and Mr. Kauffmann started to
supper and as they got to Joe's store,
Mr. Kaurrmann, wno was in tne ieaa.
says Uharles uetatta was sitting on
the steps and Joe standing in the door.
Kauri man spoke to them but , neither
of the Italians returned the greeting.
As Dr. Hodge passed, Charles romped
up and said : . " i ou snoot my goat,
and struck the doctor, ut. Jioage at
tempted to repel the attack by striking
back with his fist, but finding the
Sicilian too much for him attempted
to draw his pistol. Joe Defatta, at the
door, -pHilled a double-barrelled shot
gun and fired two shots into the doc
tor, striking him in his hands and ab
domen. - Immediately on the crack of
the gun Frank Defatta, Sy. Deferroch
and John Cereno who were in-De
fatta's store on Front street, started
on a run. to Joe's store with shot guns
an4 long knives in their hands.
Court was in session and a large
crowd of country people were in
town. With the sheriff and his depu
ties they joined in the chase and sue
ceeded in arresting and disarming
Frank Defatta, Sy. Deferrock and Jno.
Cereno, after a hard struggle.
The sherirt with his posse at once
went to the house and succeeded in
taking Charles Defatta. Joe was found
hidden under a chimney in an adjoin
ing house. He was promptly taken
out and tne shentt started to tne jail
with Charles and Joe. When the court
house square was reached a crowd of
250 citizens overpowered the sheriff.
and after a severe struggle took Joe
and Charles Defatta down in the field
to the slaughter-pen and hung them
to the gallows used for slaughtering
Joe denied the shooting and said
Charles did it. Charles said Joe fire'd
the shots, which a half dozen people
saw. Charles said he jumped on Dr.
Hodge and was sorry for it. He said
Frank Defatta and Sy. Deferroch were
the cause of the trouble.
The crowd then adjourned to the
jail, overpowered the jailor and depu
ties. Tne keys were secured and tne
crowd quickly brought out Sy. Defer
roch, Frank Defatta and Joe Creno
and hung them to an oak tree in the
jail yard. Not a shot was fired and
the crowd was orderly and quiet.
A good many citizens plead for the
lives of the Sicilians, but to no avail,
as this was the third outrage of this
kind committed by this class of peo
ple. About two years ago Frank De
fatta shot and killed a negro for pick
ing up a water melon which Frank
had for sale. One year ago Joe De
fatta shot and killed Pat Matthews,
lantern keeper at Millisen's Bend, La.,

AN INTERNATIONAL ASPECT.
Diligent Inquiry Being Made in the Matter.
The Governor of Louisiana Asked
for Report On Case Warning
to Other Italians.
Bv Telegraph to the Morning Star.
Washington, July 22. The lynch
ing of five Italians in Louisiana yes
terday promises to assume an interna
tional aspect through the action of the
Italian government. Count "VTinchi,
the Italian charge d' affaires, called at
the State Department at an early hour
this morning and made, representa
tionsito the officials concerning the
atrocfty in Louisiana.
In order to get full information as a
basis for .action by this .government.
Secretary Hay thereupon telegraphed
the Governor of Louisiana, request
ing all the facts in the case. Count
Vinchi's action was predicated on re
ports from the Italian consular offi
cials in Louisiana, and by the press
reports. There is reason-to believe,
also, that the Italian foreign office is
already fully informed on the occur
rence. , i
It is probable, however, that the
representations of to-day are only pre
liminary, with the View to calling at
tention to the facts reported and to
pave the way for any protest or de
mand of reparation which may follow.
The affair is considered in official.
Italian quarters as much like that in
the Mafia cases at New Orleans, while
Mr. Blaine was Secretary of State, j at
which time the Italian Minister, Baron
Fava, called for his passports and left
the country. Baron Fava is now in
Rome on vacation, and during his ab
sence Count Vinchi has charge of
Italian affairs in this country.
Count Vinchi's representations- to
the State Department were based upon
a brief dispatch from the acting consul
at New Orleans, Mr. Pabini. Count
Vinchi at once directed that all the
particulars in the case be secured, and
that special inquiry be made as to
whether the victims of the lynching
were Italian citizens who had not yet
become naturalized. In submitting
the matter to the State Department,
Count Vinchi wrote a note, reciting
the telegram and reinforcing it with
an expression of the hope that steps
will be taken to ascertain the facts and
extend protection to Italians in the
Submitted to the President. "
He saw Secretary Hay and Assist
ant secretary uii. Mr. Hay was
about to go to tne w nite House, so
that the representations made by the
Italian charge were submitted to the
President. Throughout the confer
ence, tne most agreeame spirit; was
shown, and there was no intimation
irom vjount v ineni tnat nis govern
ment was disposed to make a serious
issue of the affair. Neither personally
nor in the note which he submitted was
there any protest or demand for in
demnity. Any steps in this line are
likely to come when "the facts are fully
i-i-,., j ...
When Count Vinchi was seen this
afternoon by a representative of the
Associated Press, he said that he had
no doubt whatever that a satisfactory
adjustment wouia De secured..
Count Vinchi recalled that duriner
nis service nere, two affairs very simi
lar to tnis one in Colorado and
the other in Louisiana had been sat
isfactorily adjusted and this had been
brought about largely through the
sympathetic and friendly feeling which
prevails between the two governments.
He felt sure, he said, that this same
sentiment would accomplish a just set
tlement in the present case. 1
Difficult to Deal With. '
While greatly deploring the affair.
he feels that there are circumstances
which make it difficult for the Fed
eral authorities to deal with it. There
fore he is co-operating with the offi
cials here in determining the national
lty of the murdered men. It has been
impossible thus far to communicate
with the consular agent who has gone
to the scene. The dispatches sent to
him at Vicksburg have been returned
by the telegraph company, and the de
partment is unable to set track of him.
His report and that of the Governor of
Louisiana are expected to eive li&rht on
the subject and afford data upon which
tne two governments can act.
Count v mchi paid a third visit to
the State Department at 3 o'clock this
afternoon. He saw Assistant Secre
tary Hill and inquired as to the de
partment's action in the matter and ex
pressed satisfaction when informed of

Comment of Italian Press.
Rome, July 22. The Fanfulla,
commenting upon the lynching of the
Italians at Tallulah, La., yesterday,
recalls similar cases which have oc
curred in the past, and while stigma
tizing such savage acts deplores the
indifference of the United States gov
ernment, which, the Fanfulla says,
has not the strength to vanquish
fanatical prejudices, and some times,
as in the case of the shooting of miners
at Hazelton, refuses all explanation.
The paper expresses the hope that
the Italian government wilk demand
and insist upon an explanation of and
satisfaction for the lynchingX The
other papers make no comment upon
the incident. ,
Italians Warned to Leave. ' j
Baton Rouge, La., July 22. Gov
ernor Foster has received a telegram
from the Secretary at Washington,
announcing that the Italian oharge
d'affairs had applied to him for in
formation in the recent lynching of
Italian subjects in the parish of Madi
son, and demanding protection for
other Italians in that section of the
State. The Governor has also re
ceived a telegram from the acting con
sul at New Orleans, saying that infor
mation has been received that his dele
gates or agents sent to investigate the
lynching will be assaulted should they
appear at Tallulah, and that the
newspapers announce that District
Attorney Patrick Henry, of Vicks
burg, Miss., stated that Italians have
been warned to leave the parish: of
Madison within three days or accept
the same fate of the five Italians at
Tallulah. Upon receipt of these tele
grams Governor Foster wired the
sheriff of Madison parish their con
tents and requested him to furnish
all the facts of the lynching, and the
present situation, and to say if the
civil authorities in Madison parish
could maintain the law.
