Fatal Criminal Practice May Result in a Lynching.
Chillicothe, Ohio, Feb. 6. - Excitement prevails at Laurelville, a village in Pickaway, over the alleged murder yesterday of Bessie NEFF, the daughter of a farmer residing at Adelphi and the probability of the alleged murder being lynched before morning.  Late last night the coroner rendered a verdict that the girl's death was the result of some drug administered by Dr. Samson, a local physician, for the purpose of performing a criminal operation.
     As soon as the verdict was announced a mob of about 300 men surrounded Samson's house for the purpose of lynching him, but the constable, with an armed guard, finally succeeding in driving the mob back and placing Samson in the jail at Laurelville.  People have been coming into Laurelville all day.  A large crowd is hanging about the jail and it is feared tat another attempt to lynch him is to be made before morning.  The funeral of the girl took place today.
