CITIZENS LAUNDRY NIGHT RIDER 1HLS 5IORY TU'TO.VVIl.l.K. Oct. 27.—"Red" Burton scii'-i unl'cssed night rider, told ft remarUal)!.' story toilay of night rider depredations in the vicinity of Reoll'oot I.iike, roiii'esslng to the pact he had played in the outrages which reached a culmination In the putting to death of Captain Quentin Rankln, a prominent attorney, on he banks of the lake a week ago tonight, and Implicating men prominent In this sec- 4> lion of the state. Among those who, he declares, hud a part In the killing of Captain KanUin, more than half are now In custody at Camp Nemo, the military near Hamburg. The confession was made In the j jail here to Sheriff Halnes of this i county, H. Ci. Harris, owner of a large) tract oi land in the Keelfoot district j who lias Miffeii'd much ut the bunds ' of the riders, and Mayor Cleveland Donelson, of Tiptonvilie. It was made freely and voluntarily. Apparently without a qualm of conscience, Burton gladly unfolded his story. While Burton denies that he was present when Captain Rankin was put to death, he admits that it was through information given by him that the band congregated and seized the attorney while he stopped at the hotel at \Valnut I^og. According to Durton's confession, Tom and Garrett .Johnson, under arrest, and William Watson, under bond in connection' with another raid, were the leaders of the Lake band. Burton declares that the first part he ever played as a member of the night rider band was when lie aided in the burning of a ftshdock at Samburg. He was one of a party which crossed the county line several weeks later from the Reelfoot Uike district, In the adjoining county of I^ake and whipped Justice of the Peoce Wlnn, au aged man. Coming to the killing of Ca'ptain j Rankln, Burton declared that on the' night before the lynching he went to Walnut Log and there met James F. [ Carpenter, the atorney of Union City, j at whose solicitation Rankin and • R. Z. Taylor, his assistant in the • Vest Tennessee Company, the owners if the lands upon which the lake ia ^ituated, cause ID the lake. It was stated that UK- visit u! the two men was to inquire ipto a timber denl with Carpenter. After tins coiivenia- ion, Burton says, tie Communicated vltli Ihe'ulKlit. riiicT li'iulers and told the Intended visit of the represnn- ative.s of tht; land company. Ho saw he two men at supper In the hotel on he following night but declares he fi Walnut Log early in the nlglit j ind went out to the lake to fish. He vas fishing when he heard the shots which ended the life of Captain Ran- : Un but did not return to the shore for some time. In the course of liis confession, Burton gave the names of no less than 'orty members of the night riders. Carpenter is under arrest as are a majority of those whom Burton Implicates, but as to their identity Sheriff Halnes would not say further, fearing Small Ads Inserted in the Californian Convince You that Publicity Pays Professional Directory and Fraternal Announcements FRATERNAL B.
