A broken gunstook, with blood upon
t, Was found lying in the. road. The
runetock was recognized us belonging
o Aliekinder Reid, a. negro - living
lear at hand. The barrel of the broken
tun was found in his house. It had
blQod and hair upon it. Reid Med
when the avengers cane to look for
him. The people of Clarke and ad
loiningcounties,both whites and blacks,
)rganized a hunt for the murderer.
r'e river banks had beetn scoured and
ever avenue of escape cut off. The
blacks were as eager as the whites to
catch the murderer. Two negroes
captured him at the county line. When
captured a guard was placed over
Reid, who was placed in chains and
marched to Gainestown.
People along the road delanded
that Reid sh a d be ynched, but the -
guard replied that he must be taken to
the scene of his crime. '['he guard,
then numbering two huwdred men,
reached Gainestown with the prisoner
at 8 o'clock Sunday morning. The
prisoner maintained sullen silence till
Sunday, when he confessed his guilt.
Then he said that. he had not intended
to kill the young lady, but that his gull
went off accidentally a(1 wounded
her. Seeing that he was in for it any
how, he heat out her brains with the
stock of the gun. The crime, it will
be remembered was one of great atro
city. Reid assaultcd the young lad'
while she was walking home after i
having visited a friend near Gaines
ton 11. He concealed himself with his
gun by the roadside and sprang on the
young lady as she passed through a
strip of woods. She resi..ted and was
too strong for him to carry out his
purpose. lie then struck her with
his list and gull. The brave girl fgit
him ultil he shot her and mlurdered
her by striking herrepeatedly after she i
After the arrival of Reid and the
guard at Gainestown it was evident r
that but short shrift would be allowed
him. About 2 o'clock in the afternoon i
a crowd of five hundred persons, white
and black, took the prisoner out on the
road near the spot where the imnrder
had been committed and chained hii
to a tree. Blacks and whites piled 11
lightwood about the miserable criumi- 1
nal, and when the pile was breast high e
one among them applied the torch. I
As the flames shot upward the negro e
gave shrieks of agony. The crowd 1I
seeing the smoke and flames envelop- I
iug him, did not wish hii to die so i
easily. They scattered the brands and
the man was seen writhing in agony. f
Once more a pile ofl' lightwood was 1
onstructed and the flames sprang up v
briskly scorching the negro terribly.
Before they became fatal, however, t
.hey were ugain subdued, and agsin s,
thedoomed wretch was seen convulsed 1i
with terror and pain. The third time the a
