Lynch Three Negroes
For Using The Torch.
Olar, March 13.?Three negroes in
charge of two cons able3 on their way
from Olar to Bamberg to be lodged in
j tfa county jail were taken from the
I officers by a mob at Odom's bridge,
seven miles from this place, and shot
to pieces this afternoon. The mob of
75 to 100 men surprised the two constables
and quickly securing the three
negroes finished their work in short
order. The negroes were: Alfred
D ;blin, 25 years of age; Richard Dublin,
30 years of age, and Peter Rivers,
10 years of age.
All three of the negroes had confessed
to attempting to burn the house
of J. E. Cook, mayor of Olar, early
yesterday morning. On February 21
a destructive fire occurred in the business
mrt of the town, resulting in
A fortunate circumstance prevented
Mr. Cook's house from sacrifice to the
flames. By the merest chance he
came from his house to the porcli yesterday
morning about 5:30 o'clock.
He was surprised at a glow coming
apparently from beneath the floor and
on investigation found a pile of "fat''
splinters burning and an empty bottle
that had contained the oil used to
start the fire. With several buckets
of water he was able to extinguish the
blaze before serious damage had occurred.
A rigid investigation followed the
attempt to burn the mayor's house
In view of the fact that indications at
the February fire pointed to incendiary
origin, the search was even more
determined than might otherwise have
been the case. Bloodhounds were
r used in the pursuit, but to little avail.
One negro was arrested last night,
however, and the other two today. ,
Without being allowed to see or communicate
with one another they were
closely questioned and finally con|
fessed, the three telling the same
story. \ ^
All three are known locally as "bad"
negroes. All had had trouble with Mr
Oodk. Peter Rivers had been convict
ed of illegally selling whiskey and Mr.
Cook, as 'mayiDr, had fined him $100.
The two Dublin negroes had been discharged
from the employ of Mr. Ocok.
The negroes were held in the guard
house at Olar until the confessions
were obtained and then it was decided
to send them to the county jail at
Bamberg. Two constables started
this afternoon about 3 o'clock on the
lL-mile journey with their prisoners.
Olar was in a state of comparative
quiet prior to the departure of the officers
with their prisoners and no violence
wa9 anticipated although the
necessity for a speedy trial had been
appreciated by a' number of citizens
and such a request had been communicated
to the solicitor.
Just what happened when seven
miles of the trip had been safely traveled
is more or less conjecture. It is
only positively known that at Odom's
hridtre a determined crowd, number
ing from 75 to 100 men, dispatched the
three ''fire-bugs," using bullets as the
means of execution.
The coroner's jury on Thurs ay returned
the usual verdict in such cases,
declaring that the three negroes came
to their death at the hands of parties
Will Reardon was convicted at Edgefield
of the murder of C. H. Cobia t
about a month ago, and being recom- .
mended to mercy was sentenced to
life in the penitentiary. Both were
young white men. The case will go
zo rue supreme court.
