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.
