Mob Beats Clergyman
He Sanctioned an Article in Prohibition Paper Traducing McKinley.
BINGHAMTON, Sept. 24.—A clergyman, who escaped
from the crowd before his name could be learned, was knocked down and beaten
in this city last night because he said he sanctioned an article that appeared
in the Standard, a prohibition paper published here, which calumniated President
McKinley. The mob was after C. D. Pendell, the owner of the printing office
where the paper is published, but he escaped in the excitement.
Pendell’s brother, G. G. Pendell, formerly chairman of the Prohibition county committee and editor of the paper, was waited on by a committee and ordered to retract under threat of being thrown into the street with his entire printing plant. He has made a retraction, which was published in this morning’s Republican.
Great indignation has been aroused and it is generally declared that unless the Pendells leave town they will be run out.
