Miners Threaten Lynching
White Rock Drives Unknown Man to Woods for Rejoicing in Shooting.
BA P .
PITTSBURG [sic], Pa., Sept. 10.—An unknown foreigner narrowly escaped lynching and was drummed out of town this morning by the miners at White Rock, a village thirty-three miles from Pittsburg [sic] on the Allegheny Valley railroad, for expressing gratification over the shooting of President McKinley. The declaration was made Friday evening and the man was forced to hide in the woods four days to escape the wrath of the miners. This morning, headed by the villagers with tin cans and horns, he was escorted to the train and notified to never return under penalty of death by lynching.
