Tied to Tree and Whipped


Anarchist at Martinsville, Ind., Sorry He Spoke.

     Martinsville, Ind., September 15.—Joseph Pelferer, an anarchist, who was knocked down a week ago when he said he was glad President McKinley was shot, was visited by a party of unknown men last midnight, taken to a grove near town, stripped, tied to a tree and severely whipped.
