The new executive of Alabama, Gov. Cunningham speaks in no uncertain terms about lynch law. A negro named Ruben Sims was lynched in Baldwin county, and in writing to W. S. Anderson, circuit judge, says: “I trust you will yet see your way clear to the calling of a special term of your court, and thus leave nothing undone that looks to the breaking up of lynching in our otherwise fair state.”
