an effort to lynch Will Fali\ a no- ,
gro accused of assaulting a white wo

The grand Jury urged Solicitor Albert
K. mil to institute criminal proceed
ing against tile nu n and BUOh other ;
members of the lynching mob as may I
be apprehended. The accused mom
liOI'H are W. lt. ?olOhOI', .less.' Wolfe.
Kotiert Wilson ami Itohorl Ward, and
Ho grand jury presents them in tho
?'Alter careful Investigation into
the assault on tho Jail on tho night
of August 18, 1913, wo find tliat cer
tain parlies, utterly disregarded the
lives of the Olilcors and the county]
property, did make an assault on the j
|all, witli the intent of taking the
life of Will Fair. Wo present to the
courl W. It. Uolchor, Jesse Wolfe,
Hob Wilson and Robert Ward and
ask our solicitor to prosecute them."
Solicitor Hill wasted no time after
the presentment was issued. At his
request Judge DeVoro Issued bench
warrants for the arrest of the four
The Krand Jury's action, which is
without precedent in this County,
came like a thunderbolt from a clear
sky. The excitement attending the
arrest of Fair, the attempted lynch
ing, the trial and the negro's acquit
tal had long since died down and *.ho
whole affair was regarded as a clos
ed incident. There has been some
talk a month or two ngo of a grand
jury Investigation of the near-lynch
ing hut after that body in its report
at the duly term of court merely
thanked Sheriff W. .1. White lor up
holding tile majesty of tho law by hold
ing tho mob at bay. it was supposed
thai nothing more would be done. In
the meanwhile, however, detectives
have I.n at work, it is reported, and
they ilid not conclude their investi
gation until recently. W. (1. Query,
foreman of the grand jury, declined
today, however, to divulge the method
of procedure adopted in the search for
the identity of the members of the
mob. He explained that to make this
public might interfere with the appre
hension of other members of the mob
whose names are yet unknown. It was
announced that further developments
were expected and as the necessary
evidence is secured by tho grand jury
additional men will be presented.
Nothing certain had been learned
up to late Thursday as to the vo
cations and residences of the four
accused IUQ.U, but Winrd Is thought to
be an employe of the telephone, com
pany and one or more of the others
are said to be mill workers.
The grand jury's move startled
Spartanhurg and has given delight
to opponents of lynching.
The negro Fair, it will be remem
bered, was accused by a young wo
man of near While Stone, the wife
of a farmer, of having assaulted her
in her home in the absence of all
other members of her family.
: Though she persisted in her story
when Fall" was brought to trial, the
preponderance of the evidence was
that it was an hallucination on her
part. Physicians who examined her
testilled that they could find no evi
dence thai she had been assaulted, and
many negro witnesses testilled that
while Fail' passed the woman's house
he did not enter. Nevertheless Fair's
acquittal in the face of the young
woman's unequivocal accusation was
regarded as epoch-making.
After the unsuccessful attempt to
lync h Fair he was carried to the state
penitontlnry at Columbia Tor safe
kocping and held there until a couple
of days before his trial.
