Nlda wan killed. The Indignation of
citizens had boon aroused to fever
heat by numrroiiM lit-Jacklnxs and
auto thefts which have occurred hero
during the last two years, and the
Killing of Nlda was the rpark which
set off the powder. I do not con
done mob law In fact, I nm abso
lutely opposed to It but It In my
honest opinion that thn lynohlng of
Helton will prove of real benefit to
Tulia. and vicinity. It was an ob
ject Irraan to thn hl-Jackers and auto
thieves, nnd I believe that It will be
taken n such.
"Tho city police force did nil In
their power to prevent It. Wo no
tified the. county officers that In case
of n disturbance wo would bo rcwly
nt their call. Tho cnll rnmo nbout
10:30 o'clock, when the Jailer phoned
that tho mob was on tho wny to tho
Jail. Immediately I Instructed the
deek sergeant lo Issuo a general cnll
to all patrolmen to rush lo tho court
house. Hut by tho tlmr even those
at tho stnlon arrived thero members
of tho mob had gained enlranco to
tho Jail and secured Helton. Wo did
tho next best thing. Jumped Into cars
and followed tlx ever increasing
mou. nut Homing could bo done af
ter the angry cltlzenn bad Helton In
their power. A,ny demonstration
from nn officer would havo started
gun pla'snd dozens of Innocent peo
ple would havo been killed and In
jured. Most of tho city police forco
wn at tho scene of the lynching, but
my orders wero not to Interfere.
"I believe that If wo hsd been no
tified woner nnd could havo sta
tioned ourselves In tho couit houso
that tho lynching of Helton" would
have been prevented, but It was ap
parently n work of fate. The county
officers waited too long to notify um,
and wo got there Just a little lato."
Hherlff James Woolley, who was
forced by the mob to bring out
Helton, when asked tibout his ver
sion of tho lynching Inst night dc
clnrcd that ho was not expecting it
and wn absolutely unprepared.
"Tho men who entered the court
house were In my office nnd had mo
covered beforo I knew what was up,"
ho said. "I argued with them nnd
tried to get them to let tho lnw
handle tho confessed murdorer, hut
my v;o1 went In ono ear and out
the other. They disarmed mo nil at
the point of guns shoved mo up the
stairs to tho Jnll nnd mado mo com
mand the Jailer to open tho doors.
After gottlng Insldo of tho Jill they
easily overpowered tho guards nnd
demanded tho keys to Helton's cell.
After Eottlng lilm they left the Jail
yelling nnd whooping. They neer
bothered the other two prisoners,
Mnrln Harmon and Haymnnd Hlmrp,
but fearing that members of the mob
might como back after them, I
placed them In a car and rushed
them to Muskngee.
"I do not think the affair should
have happened. It Is rcgrctnblo that
will placo n 'black py' on Tulsa, but
under the rlrrumstnnccs I do not be
lieve that It could havo been pre
vented. The men wanted Helton nnd
would havo muio to any ends lo get
him. Heslstenre, might Imvo meant
a.simlllur ocruriinco to that which
happened In Omaha nbout n year
ngo. The citizens of Tnlsu bail be
como aroused nt the numerous hi
Jarklugs nnd unto thefts nnd thev
wero determined to do something It
was given lis an object lesson.
Whether It will be taken as such by
tho "bad element" of this section 1
can't say. I am unreservedly against
molvlaw! tho courts weio Hindi' to
cmiA'l and sentence the criminal,
but I belloo that Helton's lynching
wilt prove mm n beneficial thnn a
denth sentence pronounced by the
courts. It shows tn tho criminal t lint
Tulsa men mean business."
