Elijah Jones, Escaped Convict, Rapkt
and Bobber, Swans to a Tree
Southeast of Oeala Sat
The excitement caused by the evil
deeds of Elijah Jones, alias Will Call,
an escaped convict, came to a sudden
end. Saturday evening, when word
went out all over the county that his
lifeless body was swinging to a tree
two miles southeast of Ocala.
Elijah Jones was a "bad nigger."
He was all the worse from the fact
that his criminal streak ran to sneak
thieving and rape rather than murder
or one of the other crimes that would
put his life in danger. His real name
seems to have been Will Call and this
apparently was his fourth escape. His
first sentence was, it is said, for at
temnted rape. When he left the
state prison the other day he was
serving a fourteen-year sentence
breaking and entering, under the name
of Elijah Jones.
Jones arrived here a few days ago.
Thursday afternoon, a girl going
from school to her home about a mile
southwest of the city limits, was at attacked
tacked attacked by a strange negro, but escaped
' from him. Men everywhere in the
vicinity of the crime turned out to
hunt for the assailant. While busi business
ness business and care of their families com compelled
pelled compelled many to return home after a
few hours search, others continued to
hunt all night, arousing other men in
. various parts of the county. The
hunt was continued all day Friday,
and it began to be thought that the
negro had escaped Late Friday,
however, the astonishing news came
that an aged white woman had been
successfully assaulted by a negro, and
the search was taken up with renewed
vigor, it occurring to all that the two
'outrages were the work of one man.
However, there were no signs of the
miscreant? no negro filling the de
" scription of the old woman's grandson
being seen, and fear that he had
escaped began to spread. But about 1
i p. m. Saturday, Messrs. B. F. Con Condon
don Condon and J. G. Swaim, in Mr. Condon's
car,' passing the fair grounds, saw a
strange negro, and promptly captured
and brought him to the jail. Here,
the sheriff looked him over closely and
decided he did not fit any of the de
pcriptions of the criminal, but never
theless locked him up until the matter
could fee definitely decided. It was re reported
ported reported around town that a negro had
beenbrought to the jail, but was the
wrong one, so no excitement followed,
Soon after this, the sheriff was no notified
tified notified by phone that a strange negro
had been seen on the other side of the
Oklawaha, and at once sent his deputy,
Walter Perkins, over there. At that
time the sheriff had been on duty al
most forty-eight hours, so he stopped
in his office, listening for phone mes messages
sages messages that might come' in from the
different bands of searchers.
Shortly before sundown, the old
' woman, the negro's victim, was
' ttonght to the jail by a small party of
' her friends, and asked permission to
Me the negro, so he might be identi
' fied, if he was the right one. The
' 'jailor phoned the sheriff,, who at once
went to the jail. Seeing only a few
' men and they not in a threatening at-
titude, and not believing the negro
. was the criminal, the sheriff admitted
1 the old woman and a few friends to
the jail, and then began bringing out
- from the cells his negro prisoners, one
' by one. Two were led out and given
a clean bill, but when the third, the
" newly captured man, was brought out,
he was identified at once. And he was
. at once grabbed. Being alone, and
.' very much surprised, the sheriff was
unable to keep the bunch of men who
had come in with the woman, from
rushing the negro out of the jail, and
when he was out the comparatively
small number who had been on the
jail grounds a few minutes before, had
largely increased. They shoved the
negro into a big car, which followed
by several others and the procession
being. added -to every few seconds,
whizzed across town, utterly disre disregarding
garding disregarding the speed limit, and out the
Lake Weir road toward Belleview.
About two miles south of town, they
stopped, and soon the negro was
swinging to a tree.
On the way out, the negro was
questioned by his captors, and ac ac--
- ac-- nowledged that he committed the
crime against the old woman. It is
also reported that he owned up to the
attack on the little girl the day before.
-On being asked why he was guilty of
these crimes, he replied that he was
tired ox the women ox nis own race
and wanted to get hold of some of the
white ones. 'i
He asked to pray, and was given
plenty of time to do so. From what
is said of his prayers, he asked for
giveness for a good many things the
law did not aspect him of.
After he had prayed himself out, a
rope was tied around his neck and he
was pulled up. As his body 'arose
above the heads, of his captors, a vol
ley was fired into it. He evidently
did not suffer much, for a bullet from
a rifle or revolver of large caliber
struck him on the left side of the head,
going clear thru, and he could not
have Inown anything after that.. His
eyes and tongue were not protruding
as do those of people who strangle.
The body swung to the tree until al almost
most almost midnight, during which time
hundreds of people viewed it, many
going out from Ocala, or coming in
from various parts of the county.
A coroner's jury was impanneled to
view the body and pronounce. It con consisted
sisted consisted of Messrs. C. Y. Rose, Walter
Wells, A. C Cobb. Weller Carmichael,
J. H. Wilson and H. D Peebles.
A little before midnight the body

in the usual verdict ''Death at the
hands of parties unknown."
The place where the negro was
ung was in almost a straight line
and equidistant between the home -of
the little girl he Attacked Thursday
and that of the old woman he suc
cessfully assaulted Friday.
There is a great deal of sympathy
or the old woman who naturally feels
herself tainted and disgraced by the
touch of the filthy ruffian. She is poor
and has had to work hard all her life,
but has always been helpful and kind,
and her neighbors should see that she
nas assistance until she recovers from
the fearful experience.
The men who hunted, for two days
and nights for the robber and rape
fiend,' were ,rtot a "mob," as too many
headline architects are fond of calling
them. The,? were representative citi
zens, and they consider it their duty
to rid their county of rapists and rat
tlesnakes as soon as possible. Each
and every one as he took down his
gun and filled his pockets or belt with
ammunition .was thinking of some
woman or little girl who might some
day be the -victim of such j. ruffian.
They understand all about that last
remark of Elijah Jones, that he want
ed white because he was tired of
black. That ys the inspiration of all
the rape fiends, and the only thing to
meet it with is "hot lead and hemp.
These men, unlike our northern fellow
citizens, did not wreak vengeance-on
many negroes for the sake of one. It
was noticeable that during the tune
the hunt was at its hottest, that not
the slightest manifestation of ill-will
or anger was made toward the negroes
who are known here. They went
about their work unmolested and un unafraid.

in Marion county that would condone,

Wells was in the city Saturday after afternoon

on his way to Jacksonville, where today
he and the other commissioners will
work on the problem of transportation
from the union depot to the city. Mr.
Wells looked over the situation at our
union station, caused by the Seaboard
passenger trains dumping travelers in
the cinderheaps half a car-length or
more from' the platform, and agreed
with the Star that it was unnecessary
and an imposition on the people.
While he was here the southbound
limited came in, and both he and the
Star man with him were glad to see
the train pull to its proper place,
where all the passengers could step
off the platform. Mr. Wells has a
good idea of business affairs, rail
roads and human nature. It is his
idea to have the public and the rail
roads work together, as their disputes
cause loss to both. He has lots of
friends in old Marion, who are begin

worth something to the county.

Mcintosh, Fla., Feb. 13.
Editor Star: I had hoped to be able
to attend some of. the meetings to in instruct
struct instruct Messrs. Mayo and Hunter how
they should conduct themselves when
they "get to Tallahassee. I presume
they have been told what kind and
'style of collar and necktie they should
wear. One reason why I did not make
a more determined effort to attend
these meetings is, because, I had no
instructions to give, and I judge they
have been given suggestions for and
against a good many things, and are
no wiser than before the meeting
were held. Men that wanted special
favors shown them probably were
there and were earnest in their pleadings.
I do want to suggest to Mr. Mayo
and Mr. Hunter that if they don't
know Florida and Marion county and
know what is best for the general
good and knowing, haven't the nerve
crd backbone to stand for what is best
for the county and state at large, they
had better resign and not go to Talla
hassee. We had better have no rep representative
resentative representative than one that can't deter determine,
mine, determine, for himself, as to what is right
and best, or that can be blown about
by every passing breeze. They are
men of fair average intelligence, and
if they are honest they will do what
they think is best.
Let them use their brains to deter
mine all questions that may come up
I am enclosing a clipping from the
Times-Union of the 9th, quoting Sen
ator Fletcher, and I hope both Mr.
Mayo and Mr. Hunter saw it and read
it carefully. If they missed seeing it
I hope they can find a copy of the
Times-Union of the 9th and will give
this careful reading. Let them be
nen, be guided by their own judg judg-irent

Senator Fletcher said: "I have re received
ceived received a number of telegrams and let letters
ters letters urging me to support this bill as
it came from the House, from those I
am most anxious to serve. But if a
man asks me to strike him in the face,
saying he will be responsible for the
consequences I would not feel inclined
to do it. If he requests me to do that
which amounts to an assault on the
best interests xf himself and his fam family
ily family even though he does not even
think so, I must decline. If an indi

asks me to take money from other fel
low citizens and transfer it to him or
them, I cannot do it. Taxing the

One of the most thrilling of the
untold tales of the late war is that
of Lady Azgapetian, who will speak
in Ocala Friday, Feb. 25. The tale is
thrilling because of hardships and J
heroisms which have probably never
before or since been undergone by a
noblewoman of the Near East, and it
is untold because the public utterances
of Lady Azgapetian are so occupied
with the dangers and hardships of
her fellow countrymen that she has
little space for her own adventures.
When the war broke out, Lady Az Azgapetian
gapetian Azgapetian closed, her house in New
York and, together with her husband,
General Azgapetian, and several hun hundred
dred hundred Armenian volunteers went from
New York to Petrograd, enlisting
there with the Imperial Russian Red
Cross Society, and serving for two
years with the field hospital units at
tached to the army of the Caucasus
under the Grand Duke Nicholas Nich-
When Russia collapsed 'and the
bolshevik came into power, loyal ad
herents of the old regime were forced
to flee the country. Lady Azgapetian
and her husband found their escape
rat off in every direction. save toward
the north and it was from Archangel,
the Arctic port that she and the gen
eral and their tiny baby were en enabled
abled enabled to get out of the country and
after twenty-two days crossed by way
of Iceland on their return to Amer America.
Lady Azgapetian never harrows
the hearts of her audience with a re recital
cital recital of horrors or atrocities. Her
mission is to make American ac ac-quained
quained ac-quained with the Armenians, their
achievements and their merits, and to
prove .that, far from being a race of
peddlers or refugees they have a
thrilling history dating back some
three thousand years, that theirs is
the land of the Garden of Eden, that
Armenians have had an influence in
modern civilization to an extent hard hardly
ly hardly realized in America and they have
had a glorious share in upholding the
cllied cause in the recent great world
war. She makes an earnest plea for
Americans to broaden iheir view of
matters concerning the Near East
and this, she claims, would be inevi inevitable
table inevitable once America learned that Ar Armenia,
menia, Armenia, like colonial America, is today
fighting with its back to the wall for
the dearest gifts, of God, liberty and
Of her personal experience it is
difficult for Lady Azgapetian to speak.
She barely touches on the hardships
they had to undergo because the re-
nembrances are, as yet, toe keen to
be told without emotion. So difficult
was it to get nurses in the war zone,
that she was obliged to work in the
hospitals even to the night her little
daughter was born. When the child
was three months old the Russian
revolution broke out soon the army
disintegrated, conditions became un
bearable and then followed ten months
cf wandering through Russia, ten
months of danger and starvation that
seem like a horrid nightmare compar compared
ed compared with the peace, security and plenty
"Not half not a tenth has been
told of the dangers and hardships of
life in the Near East," Lady Azgape
tian recently declared while touring
the country for the Near East Relief.
"If the women of America could
conditions as they are in that unfor unfortunate
tunate unfortunate section of the world, they
would confine themselves to simplic simplicity
ity simplicity in dress and simplicity in food in
order to contribute their share to
ward the alleviation of the sufferings
of these people.'
