MOBILE, Ala., April 7. – The man hunt for Walter Clayton, the negro charged with assault, its still on, according to a message received to-day from Sheriff D. R. Booth. It was reported yesterday that Clayton had been lynched near Bay Minette, Baldwin County. Booth’s message says that the mob was drunk and Clayton escaped and is still at large.
Rewards of $200 by the Governor and $100 by citizens have spurred on the farmers to join the hunt.
