All these troubles in Lafayette county are attributed by the Governor to a few leading men, known as Conservative Union men. The regular Confederate soldiers are in no way mixed up in the matter.

Marble Hill Press March 16, 1911

Burglars were in Charleston, Mo., Saturday night. They entered the homes of M.A. Drane and F.J. Wilkinson.
At Mr. Drane's they secured $51 in cash and at Mr. Wilkinson's $2.15. They gained entrance to both houses through a window. Sheriff Cupp had his bloodhounds out Sunday morning but after following the tracks around for several blocks the dogs lost the scent. Several tramps were arrested but were allowed to go as they could not be proven guilty.

TRIED TO MOB A PREACHER

Members Of Negro Congregation Bar Pastor From Church

Independence, Mo., Apr 14.--- A large mob took possession of the colored Baptist Church in this city Sunday and refused admittance to the Reverend F.M. Fitts, the present pastor.
The mayor ordered the police to arrest the mob and this had a quieting effect.

The preacher was white-capped by being flogged with barrel staves Thursday night, and he was warned by members of his congregation not to darken their church door again.

Elder Fitts is a fighting parson and Sunday he made the unsuccessful attempt to hold a service. He asked for his salary and it was raised for him by noon.
There has been trouble in his congregation ever since Elder C.W. McDowell left to take charge of another congregation in St. Louis.

Cape Girardeau Democrat January 30, 1892

LYNCHED

At Nevada, mo., the other night, a mob composed of Barton county citizens, went to the Vernon county jail and took Hepler, the murderer of Mrs. Goodley and her little son, and hanged him in the courthouse yard.
The sheriff had secreted the prisoner in an out-house, but the mob soon discovered him. The sheriff organized a posse, including a military company, but before they could act the mob had done its work.
The murder of Mrs. Goodley and her son occurred on January 17, and was most brutal. He had been transferred from Barton to Vernon county for safety.
