T-HK INDIANA WHITE CAPS A GANG OF VIGILANTES WHO USE THE WHIP FREELY. The Story of Their Brutality as Told by a Victim—They Woke Up the Wrong- Person Once. From the yew York Times. Louisville, Kv„ Oct. 11.—“ Yes, sir; the-White Caps whipped me last Wednes day.” drawled a pale-faced, lazy-looking young man, as he leaned over a rickety* fence in the very wildest part of Harriso county, Ind., in answer to a Times cori spondent's interrogation. The corresp* dent had heard of several recent outra®’ and had gone there on his recent toi investigation. The name of the indiv ua * referred to is Joel Wright, and he liv- on a small place in a little hamlet called shker ville, about eight miles east of (Vydon. His property consists of land, hrough which runs a huge ledge of rock, he story of his troubles with the “White C fi ” is best I old in his own language: “I am a poor man and live he with my wife and brother-in-law, Ike A® 1 - * was always sort of weakly and ne f able to Work much, and people said I lazy, but 1 tell you the truth, I want-** work as much as anyone, but I can’t I'm a sick man. Last Wednesday night was laying here in bed a-sleeping,' jist ahice as any one would want to, when nuething got hold of iny throat. I was ah" half awaka by that time and I lollered out: •Sly ! Mirandy! Jneaning my wife,) Werner’s do has got me.’ I saw it was a inaran’ I hauled off en I knocked him over fainst Ike’s lied. Then two more of ’em graped me, an’ I fit till they tiedme. Then my dfe she screamed, on’ was bad skeered. T 9 children cried, 100, and begged ’em not t hurt me. There were seven of the men, ir I counted ’em. One of’em had a lantern They w ere dressed in common clothes, butrt'h had a handker chief tied across his inoul and nose, an’ his bat was palled down so t could jist see. “Seem 1 couldn’t do tillin', 1 went with them to a wixxls nee here, where they stripped off my shirt a’ tied me to a sap lin’. " Then one man fid: ‘Joel, there’s been lots of stealin’ gin’ on ’bout here, and while we don’t say f>u did it, you’re a sort of a no ’count fellor and don’t provide for yer family. We’re/oin’ to whip you, an’ if you don’t hum yourself an’ go to work we’ll come back ad give you another heatin’.’ This sheerer me, but I’m not a nervous man, and I kow’d 1 hadn’t done no wrong, so I just aid, kinder pleasant like: ‘Gentlemen,’ if I’ve done anything wrong 1 want to hangfor it.’ ” “That kind of a Juft' wouldn’t work, though, would it, Joe!” said his wife, who had come out and stod near by, with a smile on her face, wh.e Joel related his ex perience. “As I was say in’,’’son tinned Joel, who is a great talker and exdently slighty proud on account of the suiden prominence he has secured by his “Wiite Cap” experience, “one of ’em cut a iaplin’ an’ hit me seven or eight times with" on my bare back. It hurt like blazes, and when I hollered so much they stoppedan’ run oyer to then horses, which theygot on an’ rid r.wav. Joe Brown's boy saw km right afterward over there near the cut My Tittle girl came over an’cut me loose. 1 ain't over it yet; they hurt me pretty bad.” * During the past weekno less than twenty men have been taken out in different parts of the county and whpped by the white tapped vigilantes. O'er in Spencer town ship, last week, probaily two of the most sensational cases took place. Aaron Bitner, a wealthy farmer over (50 years old, and Squire John Hilde/brand were taken out and whipped untiHhey were nearly dead. They live in a smtll settlement on "Big In dian creek. At taat place the reporter was unable to see the principals, as they were both in bed and their families would not talk about the occurrence. From a talka tive neighbor, however, the following par ticulars were leaned: Bitner was a widower, and about four months ago he mcrried a widow with one son about 7 years of age. From the begin ning, it is said, Bitner had no affection for the noy and was continually abusing him. The young fellow was pretty wild, and after getting into several scrapes was, it is alleged, unmercifully whipped by his step father. A week ago the boy got into trouble again and the story is that Bitner took him out to a shed to punish him. The reporter’s informant said that fifteen min utes afterward the boy’s mother became alarmed and went out to see how the pun ishment was progressing. To her horror she beheld her son hanging from a rafter with a clothesline around his neck. Near by stood her husband with a fiendish look upon his face. The mother screamed for help, which soon arrived, and after much difficulty the half dead boy was restored to life, but he had a narrow escape, and even now is very ill from the effects of his terrible experience. The story of the alleged brutal outrage was soon noised about, and on Monday about twenty masked men rode into town and, taking Bitner, gave him the whipping he so richly deserved. Esquire Hilderbrand threatened to kill his wife and daughter, and otherwise behaved very unbecomingly. He was flogged on the -imn night, and probably earned his pun ishment, for he was fined and put under bond before Escpiire Slaughter on Friday for abusing his family. Mott Station is just now enjoying a little sensation of almost a similar character. Mott is a very appropriate name for the place, for there are as motley a crowd of people there as one would be üble to find anywhere on the face of the globe. On Thursday morning early risers found near the railway station the following expressive note tacked upon a post: NOTICE.--Phil Zeiner, Harvey Emily, John 1-ong, and Robert, Mott, the whisky ring, had better quit the vav they are a-doing. If they don't they will be taken out and whipped. Bob Mott had better leave the county. White Caps. There was great excitement uniong the tnen, and Mott immediately sold out and left. The others, however, are doing better. On last Saturday night the “White Caps” 'volte up the wrong man, and although they nearly killed him, some of them will tie sick for many days to come. Fielding Berry is a farmer, pretty well advanced in years, with a powerful physique, and lives on Blue River, near Milltown. Hearing of his whipping, the reporter rode out yesterday to see him. Arriving at the house, a. noat two-story frame, the reporter walked up to the jiorcii and past two ferocious 'logs, which growled ominously. At the door a middle-aged woman ans wered the summons, and invited the reporter into a very nice sitting room. He soon made known the object or his visit to tlie woman, who was not at all averse to relating the circumstances. “Fielding and myself. ’ she said, “were sitting right here about S o'clock, w hen someone knocked at the door. Fielding got up and opened it. As he did so two moil grabbed him ami pulled him out into the yard, when alxiut J'jght men, all masked, surrounded him. They were just getting ready to tie him when my husband picked up a piece of plank and knocked three or four of them down. He kept up striking at them, and finally made them all run. One of them stopped at the gate, where he fired three shots, all of which struck my husband. Two bit him on the right log aiid one in tho side. The latter is only a flesh wound, however, and will soon heal. The two bullet wounds in his leg are very severe. H'hen he fell, near the spring house 1 went into the kitchen and brought out the shotgun. The men were coming back then to whip my husband. 1 went to where he was lying and put the gun in his hands. Then I helped him up, and he told them to go back or he would blow their Leads off. They went awav, saying they would come back again. We don’t, know any of them. The only one who spoke said they had come to whip him because he had licked Alf Green's boy. Cole Green is the meanest boy in this section, and he deserved all my husband gave him. We we not afraid oF*‘ U ’ I,ite SSgJ’Ej? 4 ,hf> ne *A timo(W>me w.j will be better prepared tor thei " ° * lliVe *> f “ ar d of them whip nine tc men near here during the past * Viart huffy and Zeke Kaebel were whini Thursday night. They said the n * J been caught stealing.” jXferry told tlie same story as that of hi ‘Tc. He said he would know the men if ir he saw them again by the marks he lr e upon them. As soon as he is able to about he proposes to visit in the neigh fhood. The old man looks as though he ould be a dangerous subject to trifle with, id when he takes the warparth thore will robably be some blood spilled. The general sup|x>sition is that Harrison county, the home of the “White Caps,” is a wild, lawless section. Such, however, is not the case. Some of the best farm lands in the State are to be found thore, and the people are for the most part intelligent and educated. The great drawback is that there is but one railroad through the county, and although there are very many fine stone quarries, but little of their product finds its way to the outer world. Many of the smaller houses are built entirely of stone. One of these huts In particular was overgrown with bright green moss, and looked to be fully fifty years old. The in habitants are all thrifty in their way, and the farms are well tilled. There is, how ever, no spirit of advancement or enterprise manifested, and the coming generation, un less a wonderful change takes place, will be perfectly satisfied to go plodding along in the footsteps of their fathers and grand fathers, content in their own little world. From this it must not be inferred that they are not of a social turn, for the debating and singing societies meet at least twice a week. Nearly everybody drinks whisky; but it seems to agree with them, and there are but few drunkards to be seen. The “White Caps,” from what the re porter could learn, are not a gang of lawless ruffians, as one would suppose from leading of their proceedings, but farmers who pro pose to make the lazier, shiftless population behave themselves. A dollar looks as big to them as a barn door, and, in order to save the expense of a court trial they simply con sider the case and take the law in their own hands. An instance illustrative of this oc curred yesterday, while the reporter was stopping at Gresham station. Bob Morris, a worthless fellow, broke into the railroad station and stole six tickets to Boston. The young lady who has charge traced the theft to him readily, and when she boldly charged him with it he owned up. Twenty minutes afterward a note was left in his front yard, signed by the “White Caps,” telling him if he did not leave the place immediately he would be taken out and whipped, No one thought of having him arrested. A BIG GAME OF DRAW. A Fargo Man Rakes in a $25,000 "Pot” at Sioux Falls. From the New York World. St. Paul, Oct. 7. —The biggest game of poker played in the Northwest for several years took place in Sioux Falls, Dak., yester day. Maj. Edward I.Koffarl.of Fargo, wentto Sioux Falls on private business, but when his presence in town was known Frank Pet tigrew. ex-Congressman and a prominent capitalist, and Mellville Griggsby, the political director of South Dakota, hunted him up, and in less than an hour the three were comfortably locked within an office in the rear of the First National Bank, with their hats drawn over their eyes, fighting like bulldogs over big jack-pots. Griggsby and Pettigrew- had the advantage in that they were fighting on their native heath, and fortune seemed to give the Major the cold shoulder, but he stood his ground well and met his losses with the grit of a Spartan. He was a heavy loser and it began to look as though he would have to walk back to Fargo, but at last the cards were passed to him to deal, and, taking them carelessly, he laid them over Griggs!iy\s side of the table to cut. Griggsby didn't cut. Slow ly the Major dealt the cards until the hands were out. It cost him a SIOO bill to “stay,” and Griggsby raised it to S2OO. Koffarl saw that and dropped his check for SSOO more in the centre of the table. Griggsby and Petti grew drew a card each. Koffarl drew five. Griggsby jumped in with asl,ooobet; Petti grew raised it to $2,000. Both looked happy. The Major looked disconsolate. He said: “Gentlemen, I’m broke. I’ve checked out to you the last cent I’ve got in the bank, but if either of you w ant to take a mort gage on my newspaper office for SIO,OOO I will give it to you and bet that amount of money that my hand wins the pot.” Both gentlemen agreed and drew their checks on the spot. “I reckon you are suckers. I’ve got four kings,” said Pettigrew, tossing his cards down ahead of time with a jubilant smile. “The !” ejaculated Griggsby, crushing his queen full in his hand. “Hem!” said the Major. “It’s pretty tough, gentlemen, but I had to have them. Here are four aces. It’s funny how they stuck together that way.” He raked in the pile, and the game ended. The Major wasn’t saying a word, but he returned to Fargo something like $25,000 richer than when he went to Sioux Falls, SCENE ON A TRAIN. Love’s Romance Disturbed by the Temporary Missing of a Groom’s Boodle. From the New York Sun. A man and a woman got on a train at Newark, bound for Philadelphia. They were evidently a newly married pair, and all of the otherears being full, the couple had to find seats in the smoking car, where they comfortably settled themselves, alter putting a carpet-bag and several packages in the rack overhead. The bridegroom then began to give her his earnest and undivided attention to making the trip as pleasant as possible. The man was dressed in a pair of trousers of the bedtiek order, with coat and waistcoat of a pea-green hue. From his waistcoat dangled a large and massive watch chain, and around his neck was a bandana handkerchief tied in a knot. Noth ing was wanted to complete his toilet but a collar, and this was missing. The girl was dressed in a calico gown, and a large hat with peacock feathers in it set saucily on her head. After the train had gotten well under way several passengers noticed the peculiar actions of the man. His face was flushed, his eyes snapped fire, and it was evident that some trouble had befallen the pair. The man suddenly arose and began to take off his coat and waistcoat. Then he pulled down his suspenders, and was in the act of removing his trousers when a passenger called the attention of the brakeman to his conduct. Before the conductor could be summoned he drew' a revolver and com menced to emphasize his remarks to his spouse by flourishing it in her face. By this time the occupants of the car be came very nervous, and began to edge to ward the door. The conductor finally suc ceeded in persuading tho groom to subside and put up his pistol. Tho cause of all the trouble w as the misplacement of the finances for the bridal tour. Things looked quite serious for a time and rather discouraging for the trip. At last the conductor sug gested that tho pockets of his linen duster, which had been overlooked, bo searched, and there was found the cause of the un pleasant episode. The groom was then seized with a sudden paroxysm of delight, and, throwing his arms around the girl’s neck, began to kiss and hug her vigorously. He then produced a black bottle and invited the passengoi'S to take a whack with him to celebrate hts good fortune. “Be wise with speed; A fool at forty is a fool Indeed 1” So said Young!
