For Murder of Bullard guilty -Negroes
Paid With Their Lives.
Albany, Ga., June 20.-Baker
county was the scene of a triple
lynching early this morning. The
affair took place about a mile
from Newton, thecounty seat, and
twenty-one miles below Albany.
The mob's victims wore George
McKinney, Garfield McCoy and
Wiley Anette, negroes who on last
Saturday night cowardly murdered
F. S. Bullard, a respectable Baker
county farmer.
Bullard had gone to the house
occupied by one ot the tenants oh
his place in order to quiet a free
for-all fight that had started among
a company of negroes who wore en
gaged in a Saturday night frolic.
Bullard's interference was resented
by 14cKinney, McCoy and Anette,
who were from Miller county, und
they opened fire o1 the white man
with revolvers, inflicting wounds
from which death resulted on
Six negroes present were more
or less seriously wounded during
the shooting, and one may die.
McKinney, McCoy and Anette
were captured Monday and placed
in jail at Newton. Their guilt
was fully established at a commit
ment trial oil Tuesday. There
was some talk of a lynching, but
little attention was paid to it,
there being an apparent willingness
to allow the law to take its courso.
The three murderers were not
destined, however, to be legally
tried and punished. It was just
at midnight last night that Jailor
William Screws was called from
his bed by Bailiff B. 0. Tucker,
who had arrested the three mur
d(.rers The officer stated that he
had another prisoner for jail, where
upon the jailor hastily dressed and
procended to the jail, accompanied
by the bailiff. The front door of
the prison was opened and the
jailor entered. In the twinkling
of an eye, it seemed, a dozen men
sprang out of the darkness and
pistols were thrust in the face of
Jailor Screws, the light of his
lantern at the same time being ex
"Open the Inner <oor," was the
stern command of a gruff voiee.
Jailor Screws obeyed with alacrity.
In a minute McKintey, McCoy
and Anette were in the hands of
the mob. James 8tory, who is
charged with the murder of John1
Leonard, colored, about a year ago,
was also confined in the jail, but
he was not molested. 1.1 the ex

The mob wasted no time. Fromn
the jail it patssed out'of town, going
directly wvest. A mile beyond the
town ligfhs it found a tree that
evidently suited its pu1rpose. The
pi isoners' hands had ahi eady been
tied behind them, and nooses of
hemp rope weoro quickly slipped
over their heads. The three pieces
of rope were throwvn over a strong
limb, eager halnds pulled on the
frfae ends and the three bodies were
drawn clear of the ground.
The swinigin~g bodies were then
riddled with bullets. it is stated
that hundreds of shots were fIred,
the clothing being literally shot
from the bodies.
The lynching is deplored by
most of the people of Baker county.
It was totally unexpected, the mob
having perfected its plans without
attracting attention. Tile fact that
Bullard's family is left in destitute
circumstances, his wife being a
hlopeless invalid, helped to inflame
public feeling against the murder,
