In many of these cases the lynch
ings followed the arrest or conviction
of the victims on the charges made
against them In other cases the vic
tims met death while endeavoring to
escape from pursuing posses In two
cases the negro victims were lynched
by mobs composed of members of
their own race In almost every case
the victim was summarily hanged or
shot without burning at the stake
such as accompanied these acts of
summary vengeance in former years
In the foregoing record the word
lynching has been held to apply
only to the summary punishment in
flicted by a mob or by any number of
citizens on a person alleged to have
committed a crime for which that
person should have been tried accord
ing to law This limitation excludes
a number of cases leported during the
year such as the race trouble which
occurred near Slocum Texas last
