Mr. Williams is a farmer, well to do,
and* one of the most prominent residents
of his section of Franklin County. The
dead woman was a member of one of the
oldest families In the country.
. Lying on the floor of the family
room, Charles Williams found his
wife on Friday afternoon when he
returned from marketing his wheat in
the little town of Maxwell. A bullet had
gone through her head, life was extinct
and her two baby children were crying
alone In their grief and fear. The oldest
boy, aged 5, told what had occurred. The
young mother had been shot and killed by
Henry Noles, a negro hand on the Wil
liams' place. As the mortally wounded
woman sank to the floor Noles shot at
the boy. the bullet grazing the child's
head. Then he fled to the woods. The mo
tive. It is believed, was robbery, and $20
was obtained by the assailant.
Crime of Mob's Victim.
At 1:40 o'clock a match was applied and
instantly the quivering body was en
veloped In flames. Fence rails were plied
about the burning body and soon life was
extinct. The negro made no outcry at
any time and died as stolidly as a stoic.
There •were no disorderly scenes about
the burning body. At least 6000 per
eons witnessed the horrible fate of the
negro. Many remained until nightfall,
augmenting the blaze until the body was
entirely consumed. Then they departed
for their homes quietly.
He finished his statement at 1:35 o'clock.
He was taken from the stump, carried to
a tree near by. bound to the tree by
chains and oil was poured upon his body.
Meets Death Stoically.
He was then asked as to whether any
one else was Implicated in the crime.
Noles said emphatically that no one was
implicated but himself.
"Why did you kill Mrs. Williams?" he
¦was asked. .
"I just done that because I had noth
ing else to do."
"Tell all my sisters and brothers to
meet me in glory- I am going to make
that my home. Tell my mother to meet
me where parting will be no more."
The mcb was orderly, but determined.
It seemed that the whole population ' for
miles around had turned out to see the
fate of. the wretch. A procession three
miles in length -followed the mob to the
Williams home. Arriving at a point In
sight of the scene of the crime the negro
¦was placed upon a stump and given a
chance to make a statement. He mounted
the 6tump stolidly and. laughed as he be
gan his statement. He said:
No sooner had these appeals been made
than several hundred citizens from the
neighborhood where the crime was com
mitted augmented the crowd to thou
sands. They fwpt forward, upon the jail,
overpowered the Sheriff and his deputies^

W., WASHINGTON, Aug. 25.—Informa
tion \ received , in Washington indicates
that President Castro hesitates to plunge
his country into a war with .Colombia, the
'outcome of 'which no one can see. It. Is
believed here that there has been a slight
'Improvement in the South American situ
ation within the past few days, and It Is
hoped that war .between Colombia and
her' neighbors may be averted. There is
reason to' believe that ' President Castro
has been much disappointed in his expect
ations of support from -Nicaragua and
Ecuador and that he will pause before
taking a step In which he would not have
the united support of Venezuela- and In
which he -might, encounter the opposition
of the United States.
PHOENIX, Ariz.. Aug. . 25.— The arrest
here -yesterday of William M. Koey, cus
toms collector at Nogales, and that at
Tucson of B. F. Josey. Chinese Inspector,
charged with implication In the schema
for' smuggling Chinese from Mexico into
the United States, continues to eyeate a
tremendous sensation. For ; a long time
it has been known that secret service men
under orders of the Treasury Department
were Investigating wholesale smuggling
of Orientals, but Hoey and Josey appar
ently have been the most active In the
efforts to slop the practice. It is charged
that they had an arrangement with sev
eral Chinee to let contraband Celestials
come over the border at a rate rangmj?
from $50 to $500 each. The highest price
was paid fcr girls, who were provided for
sale to wealthy Chinese. Several girls had
been captured recently, but It Is believed
that hundreds of them have been 3ecretly
fcrought in. • - .
Recently, as a means of decreasing the
Influx of Chinese from Mexico, the depart
l.ient has refused to allow Chinese bound
for 1 that country to land at San Fran
cisco and other ports and go overland* to
Mexico* unles's absolutely satisfied that
they intended to remain In Mexico. None
of those who passed through the United
States In transit to Mexico stopped off
before crossing the border. The railroads
carrying \ them were compelled to give
bend, and In consequence every train
carrying Chinese . to Mexico carried
guards, and the Chinese were always de
livered on the Mexican side of the fron
tier. Most- of. them speedily got hack Into
the United States, however.
It Is hoped by Treasury officials that the
unearthing of this conspiracy will pat a
stop to most of the smuggling of Chinese
across the Mexican border which has been
going: on for several years. . The depart
mejit. : ,has, knpwii, that Chinese were get
ting across, but it was not supposed that
the ..very men relied upon to keep them
out were helping them to come'lnV- It was
supposed that. they eluded; the officials
along the long, and thinly settled frontier.
CALL. BUREAU. 1406 G STREET.. N.
W., WASHINGTON. Ausr. 23.— Further
arrests on account of the smuggling of
Chinese across the Mexican 'border are
expected to be made to-morrow. Secret
service officers who are at work on the
case report that they expect to have evi
dence sufficient to justify the arrest of
several more officers of the Chinese In
spection service, but the Treasury Depart
ment will not give the names of the sus
pected officers • In advance of the arrests
being made. In the case of at least" one
high' official, secret service men report
that they are fully satisfied that he Is
Implicated, \ but they have not yet
obtained evidence that would justify them
in making his arrest. The conspiracy In
volved men not only along the Mexican
border but also along the line of railway
from Nogales clear Into California.
