He promised to reconvene the grand jury today to indict the negro promptly and have him tq dily tried nt the pres ent term of court, assuring the crowd thnt his conviction nml legal execution were a foregone conclusion. This ap peal was supplemented by .Indue J .1. Lynch, Captain W. 1'. 'Policy and others.

"Why did you kill .Mrs. Williams'" was asked. "I just done that because I had noth ing else to do," came the nnswer. Nolcs was taken from the stump, bound to n tree by chains and his body saturated with oil. A mutch wns applied nnd instantly the quivering body was en veloped in flames. Fence rails were pileil about the burning body and soon life wns extinct. . The negro made no cry nt any time. At least li.OiNI people witnessed the burn ing.
