The Close Proximity of a Rope Gives a Suspicious Colof to the Entire Performance. Dr. Walters Ho and E. F. Svvea City Was this scene Monday night of an incident that may take on a serious phase before the, end is reached. Dr. Walters was down from Bancroft yesterday and gave the facts so far as ho knew them. His information came from a young man named Geo. Hill, formerly of LuVerne, but lately a resident of Swea City. Hill came into Bancroft yesterday morning about 1 o'clock, bare-headed, bare-footed, and but scantily dressed, his feet badly lascerated and swoolen out of alt proportion, the result of a three-hour race accroas the country. Hill told the story to substantially as follows: Ryan, a druggist at Swoa City, had retired Monday night at the hotel, whore they boarded, at-the" usual hour. About 11 o'clock some parties came to the hotel and called for them. Fearing that trouble was in store they made some inquiry, only to learn that they were to hurry up and get on their clothes and leave the country. Peering down the stairway they discovered what appeared to be a good-sized crowd evidently more or less excited. Nothing was left for them however but to face the music. No sooner had they reached the ground floor than both were seized, and with the remark from some one in the crowd, "We will hang this one first," Hill found himself in the hands of a mob. They had brought a rope with them which they handled with such reckless abandon that Hill thought his time had surely come. Hill is something of an athlete and all-round handy man, and he did not propose to die without some exhibition of "game," and in the rough-and-tumble that followed Hill was severly pounded; but an opportune moment came and he broke away, starting accross country for Bancroft with a howling mob at his heels. Ho thought he ran about three-quarters of a mile before he dared to look around, was to discover his pursuers-close upon him. But bo- ing " winde'd" or nearly so he dropped behind a willow hedge. He hadn't much time to commune with nature, and taking a more practical view of the situation he pulled off his boots, threw away his coat and hat, and again set out. In his wanderings ho went through corn fields and across the prairie, fearing to keep the road lest he should be overtaken. He reached Bancroft at 1 o'clock yesterday morn- the condition above stated. Dr. Walters attended him, and while he gives evidence of having been badly handled, he will pull through without serious results. Hill says that about the time he made his escape he heard Ryan yelling like a Comancbe Indian, and calling for help; that he was -being killed, and so on. Ryan walked into Bancroft yesterday morning at 0 o'clock, it is stated, but was not seriously injured, The parties concerned in the outrage are supposed to be residents of Swea City. There is something back of- this which throws a side light on the occur- renco of Monday night, and is probably the chief ncause of the trouble. Dr. Heflin and Ryan were proprietors of a drug store at Swea City which burned a short time ago. Dr. Heflin, it seems, had incurred the displeasure of a good portion of the community, and not so very long ago he was warned to leave the town, which he wisely did and has not showd up since. The ill feeling seems to have extended to Ryan, and after the burning of the drug store this feeling was intensified by ugly rumors as to the cause of the fire. Whatever of truth there may be in these rumors is a matter of controversy of which we know nothing. One thing, however, that seems certain is that after disposing of Dr, Heflin the community proposed also to be rid of Ryan, and they adopted summary means for accomplishing their object, Hill was in no way connected with Heflin or Ryan, except that he was a chum of the latter. The mob, however, seems to have considered him as a sort of dog Tray, and his punishment is due mainly to the fact of his being found in bad company. As to all the facts in the case we shall know more when we hear more.
