Tragedy in a Church.
Atlanta, May IS. Five or six hundred
men, divided into a half dozen posses
are tonight searching the country adja
cent to this city for Millard Lee, the son
of a well-to-do farmer,- who today shot
and instantly killed Miss Lllla Suttle, a
yonng woman of 19. The tragedy took
place at Wesley chapel, Mount Gilead
camp grounds, nine miles from Atlanta,
Lee firing two bullets Into Misa Suttle
just as the minister had finished the ben
ediction and before any of the worship
ers had started to leave the church.
Lee, who Is about 20 years of age,
came into the church during the services
and took a seat two pews from the door
and almost directly behind Miss Suttle.
Just as the services were over and the
congregation had risen to Its feet. Lee
leaned forward and fired two shots at
Miss Suttle, killing her instantly. Lee
escaped, and meeting his lather some
distance from the church secured $100
from him. Several posses were soon
organized and. a call sent In for blood
hounds, Dr. John Suttle, father of the
murdered girl, heads one of the posses,
while his son directs another.
Miss Suttle was a strikingly beautiful
young woman and had recently gradu
ated with high honors from a college. It
Is said that she refused Lee's attentions
because she considered herself above him

The circular which President Mitchell
sent out yesterday warning the Polish,
Slavish and Llthunian miners to remain
away fiom the bituminous region of
Virginia and WeBt Virginia, where

miners attend services. Some of the
clergymen made , remarks urging the
strikers who belong to their congrega
tions to be law abiding and be guided by
their leaders, so long as the leaders were
faithful to the trust reposed in them.
Some of the Polish and Llthunian clergy
men are said to be opposed to the strike
or were opposed to it before it was
ordered, on the ground that the people

not prepared to stand a long siege of
