LEXINGTON, Ill., Dec. 27 - News of the lynching of Thomas P. Kerr, at Pioneer, Arizona, was received here this morning. His mother and sister are crushed by the intelligence. Kerr had many warm friends, and was not a desperado, and people here refuse to believe that he killed Hartley without grave provocation.
