William Sullivan, the mur- dererof -Layton Leetch; was; dead and the avengers of tho-lattlr, satisfied at having strung him up, even,though they did not hiive. the satisfaction' of being the immediate cause, of his death, were'.-appeased and.billing to return,to their homes and resume their wonted quietness. No such, affair has ;•', ever been (witnessed in the annals of the criminal, history of Michigan and itlosfcfc no forcd'because tlie-prisoner anticipated the arrival of the mob and cheated them out of a living, victim. No one who was*not an eyewitness of the affair can picture to himself the awful details and the vehemence with whjch they were carried out. No mob was ever more eager for the life-blood of a human being than was the 6no which surrounded the jail'on Tuesday night and lustily demanded that Sullivan be given over to them, to be disposed of as they saw fit. Their ferocious spirits .increased like the formation of a storm. Their fury was something terrible to behold. They were not organized, but it • took but a moment for them to move as a unit, when a few of the bolder ones took the initial steps. From that time on they needed no leader, their purpose was a common one, and with fiendish gle« they rushed on with all their might to •accomplish the end. The lilo.ody Ground. In the gray drawn of the morning after the lynching tho grounds a'ruund the jail and courthouse presented an unnatural appearance. The lang stretch of grass in front pf the buildings was trampled and ruined,'and hun-, dreds of footprints sunk de,ep in the ground could be plainly seen. '"The rear part of the grounds, where the mob displayed their brutality in the wildest form, was almost revolting to those who knew what had taken place there 1 only a few hours before, and the whole story could be readily seen by looking the ground over. The true from which Sullivan swung was multilated and not a vestige of sod remained on the, ground for tlie space of 10 feet around it. Th^ particular ; branches over which the hemp rope was passed had been broken off by relic hunters, to be carried away in triumph. Looking over the grounds, towards the south, the path -of the body, where it was dragged by several Hundreds of boys, was plainly discernible, yhile at short .distances wer*j small pools 6f water which had been colored by hisiblwd. At this early hour there were bufc few people ou the grounds, atid, oddly enough they were women, whose curiosity could no longer be'restrained, and they walked around • examining the places pbintpd out to them. As the morning grew on the, crowd beeame larger andr-the jail ^vaa. soon the object • of attraction, especially 't<^ the ladiea.' 'l?hey esapjiued the floojfs.uind?" ;locks which had* ibeen "broken , perhaps by .their huSbahls, »nd their, nods of ap- roval ehOTf^r ^hat they, top, '.shared. of them stated that..Sttilivanr.vfas not" there, as they could not see hifli, but witness told the'in that lie was in the cell and dead. He thought eio because ho hao%een tho blood on, the floor of the cell. Deputies Van Horton and Lyburg •were sworn; and the latter told about the struggle in the hallway. Both witnesses went into the cell together after Sullivan had been taken out)) and they found .two pieces of a glass bottle lying on' the floor. One wag the neciT of a pint flask, the edges of which were very sharp and covered with blood.. The other Was about two inches in diameter and was part of the side and the bottom. Van Horton saw Sullivan dragged out,.:and in his own opinion the'man was 1 ' dead then, as he never moved a muscfe, and blood was streaming from the cut in his neck. Sheriff Jacobs then took the stand, and he also dwelt on the,hard struggle he made' to prevent the mob entering the jail. Alt the doors were locked, .he eaidf and the north door was braced with boards nailed on the door. Be- Bides this, Sullivan's 1 cell was locked. 1 "Three men," said the-sheriff,' "overpowered me. They tied my hands and feet. Some one Aitrthe' rope and I jumped up again, but was held by other men. We fought every^foot of the way in the hall, ftnd they, were too much for UB;" '.The sheriff .knew none of the men \vho tool$ hold of the rope,,, but stated that he knew some of the persons who were there. He also saw Sullivan after he had been dragged out, .and he too was of the opinion that Sup- van was dead before the rope w,as around his neck. _ Dr. Babintoh, who held the postmortem examination, testified that Sullivan's heck was cut from ear to ear. The wound penetrated deep into the throat and the edges were jagged, showing that it was made by a rough instrument, The edge of a bottle was shown to the doctor and he said that in his opinion the woiuid could have been made with it. He also found that the jugular vein had been severed as was also the carotid artery. Sullivan had died in from 20 to 25 minutes, ha thought, and lost about three quarts of blood. The case then went to the jury without any argument, and they adjourned until 1:80 o'clock. Very'soon after reassembling a. verdict.of suicide was rendered. A Satl Case. GRAND RAPIDS, May 25.—Ed 5. Martin^ one of the oldest clothing men in tlie city, was arrested for grand larceny. He has the employ of the Houseman, Donally & Jonea establishment for over $0 years, and grew up from a boy with the younger members of the firm. The stealings have-on- sisted mostly of small amounts of silk linings, buttons and other material, which he turned over to Abraham Levi, ft tailor, who made them up into^ suits and they shared the profits. When Eugene W. Jones swore dnt the complaint there was an affecting scene. They were both boys together m the store .20 years ago, and he threw his arm around'the prisoner's neck .and broke down, completely. Martin and Levi confess their guilt "and will be prosecuted. v Drink jyas the cause of Martins downfall. ' - '• . •*»• ••• - . •' - -, ,l)oti't fail to go to Mulott's arid' have your eyes tested.
