The shot riddled body of negro W.C. Williams hangs from a towering oak
tree less than 150 yards from where the murder and assault for which he
was killed were committed. A mob of 300 persons administered lynch law
after Williams admitted that he had clubbed mill worker Robert N. Blair
to death and criminally assaulted his girl companion. The mob took williams
from the posse which had captured him after a three day hunt, strung him
up to this tree, then riddled his body with bullets.
