The rumor spread about town yester day afternoon that Corwell would be taken before Coroner Mc'Cormiok at the inquest to be held over the hand ful of charred bones which is all that is loft of the negro ravish er and mur derer. This was what brought the crowd to the police station. It began to gather as early as 7 o'clock, and in less than an hour was a tumultuous, threatening mob of thousands. The street in front of the station was So Densely Haced that street cars were brought to a standstill or made their way along at a snail's pace.

Ii was rather because it is believed or hoped that he had participated in the lynching.
