The south as usual furnished tho main body of these lawless executions, no leas than 200 taking place in that section, with Tennessee! and Louisiana each credited with 28.

Fremont, O., Jan. 17.—Ex-President i Kutherford Birchard Hayes died at 11 j o'clock tonight from an attack of neu-1 ntigia of the heart. He left home Monday on a trip to Oolumbus, Buffalo and Cleveland. Sat-, unlay he experienced a severe recur- ] cunce of the malady, but btlug prepared i "or his return home, proceedeel on his Journey, accompanied by his son Webb. Word had been sent home by telegraph of the condition of the general, and he was met at Uie train by his son, Rutherford B. Hayes and Dr. F. S. Hilbeth, rlie family physician, with a carriage. Kuteulug the carriage, they were rapidly driven to the Hayes mansion in Spiegel Grove, where attention was given the stricken general. i From Mr. Webb Hayes it is learned that the condition of his father took a sudden change early in the evening and rapidly grew worse. The members of the family had spent the day quietly at home and nothing seemed to indicate that the death of the general was expected. Webb Hayes went to the bank where he is employed at the usual hour this morning. Tlie family has all along been reticent concerning the condition of ex-president and the attending physician has followed the same; course. Webb Hayes late this evening said his father had paseel a comfortable day. had rested quietly and seemed to be in a most cheerful mood. Miss Lucy Elliot Keeler, a relative of the Hayes family, spent several bom's with the ex-president today. While lying hi his room he frequently referred to his wife's grave on Uie preceding Sunday and spoke of the quint beauty of the snow-covered scene. H-? said he almost wished he was lying there and yet, he said "My life hns been unexceptional a happy one." His last words were "I know I am going where Lucy is." He passed quietly and painlessly away at 10:45 In the evening. Sourrounded by the members of his household. The funeral will be held Friday and Gen.

He began the practice of law in Lower Sandusky, now Fremont. In 1850, he removed to Cincinnati, where his integrity and ability soon secured for him professional success. He afterwards went to Freinoui. During the war he was a brave soldier anel became a major general. He was four times wounded. While at the front in 'B4 he was elected to congress in '06 he was reelected and in '67 he was chosen governor of Ohio over Thurman. In '09 he was re-elected over Penelleton. In '72 he was defeated for congress, but in '75 was again made governor. This gave him a boom which placed bun in the presidential chair a year later. His wife died about two Magayine-.
