the Penalty in In-
CONFESSED HIS CRIME
After Being Identified by His
Victim. — Four Hundred
Men in the Chase and
at the Lynching.
BURNED NEAR THE SCENE
Chlckasha, I. T., July 1.—The negro
who committed criminal assault upon
the sixteen-year old daughter of Ira
Robertson, near Womack, was captur-
ed last night and after being taken
back to the scene of his crime, was
hanged and burned near the spot
rliorc he committed the crime. He
confessed his crime and offered no
resistance to the mob. To one per-
son the negro gave his name as Cliff
Mays, of Marshall, Texas, and he told
another that he was Will Newbright,
of San Antonio.
By the time the negro was overtaken
near Bardley last night,, fully 400 men
had joined in the chase and soon after
the capture the march to Womack
It was nearly 8 o'clock this morn-
ing when the Robertson home was
leached and the negro brought before
the assault) ,i girl,
“That's the one,” she said at once,
and the negro replied:
"Yes, lady, I'm the one. Gentle-
men, I admit the crime."
The mob then proceeded with their
victim past the spot where he had
committed his crime and to a tree in
the road on the bank of Walnut
creek, where a rope was thrown over
a limb 18 feet high and the other end
knotted around the man's neck.
He was given an opportunity to
speak, and again confessed his guilt.
After a prayer for forgiveness, he was
drawn into the air.
Before life was extinct the body
was lowered to the ground, logs anu
brush heaped upon it and the mass
ignited. For a moment the body
writhed, a few groans were heard ami
the flames completed their work.
Two hours later the charred body

flrection of the deputy marshal from
Purcell, who had been thwarted in his
effort to take the negro from the mob.

150 cases on its docket.
