Daniel Parker formerly a minister in the Bunker church in this county, in a conversation; recently relative to th« mysterious disappearance of Luelia Mabbitt some years ago, stated positively that in the lynching of Amer Green the missing girl's supposed murderer, an Innocent < man was put tojdeath, "Mr. Parker was a frequent visitor at the Mabbitt homestead, and wa.s well acquainted with Luella, with whom he frequently talked. For several years he has traveled extensively in the west and in Mexico, and be says that while in the City of Mexico he met Luella Mabbitt, who waa married to a wealthy and influential Mexican. He had a conversation with her, but she was averse to speaking of her past experiences, and gave him to understand that his room was better than his company." The special adds that "there'are many people in Carroll county who believe what the Rev. Mr. Parker says." The above story adds a very sensational flavor to a highly sensational murder case.

Amer Green, the suspected lover, was finally located on a ranch in Texas and brought back to the Delphi jail, by J. B. Stanley, from which place a mob took Green by force and hanged him to a tree near the scene of the supposed murder. The story now told by Bev.

The sensational publications or late regarding Mrs. Luetgert of Chicago may have a counterpart in this case.
