December 27.-Bud Wilson, a negro, was lynched In Fayette county, Ala., about ten days ago, but the fact did not leak out until to-day. A few days before the lynching Wilson attempted to outrage Mrs.James Fowler, a white woman, whom he found alone at her home In a remote part of the county. He was captured and some officers started with him to the County Jail, some twenty miles from the scene or the crime. On the road, and in day- light, a party of white men took the negro, hanged him to a tree and riddled his body with bullets.
