MOBILE (Ala.), April 5. – Walter Clayton, a negro, who was serving time at the stockade of the Hand Lumber Company for manslaughter, late Saturday afternoon attacked Mrs. Joseph White, aged twenty years, and was lynched by a mob of seventy-five men outside the limits of Bay Minette last night.
The attack occurred at the woman’s home, six miles below Loxley. The negro returned to the convict camp, where he was arrested last Saturday night and confessed.
Two officers hurried him to Bay Minette, county seat of Baldwin county. As they approached the jail seventy-five men came from behind a fence and took charge of the negro and carried him away. The negro has not yet been found.
