The killing occurred about one o'clock on the Charles Bailes farm about 20 miles up the river on Military road. From the testimony it seems the killing was provoked. Two men in a wagon were coming from the far end of the farm and no one noticed Sandusky Williams (white) and Dave Alexander (colored) in conversation, and the negro raised his hoe when the white man shot him thru the heart. The coroner rendered the verdict accordingly. Williams was met on the road coming to town, but was not recognized by the officers. Williams is in town and will probably give himself up.
05/09/19 McINTYRE SAM UNK 4 22 1919 UNK On the night of April 22,1919, Sam McIntyre, under indictment for murder, was taken from the county jail by masked men, carried a few hundred yards up the railroad tracks and hanged. Street rumor has it that the life of McIntyre was taken not for the crime he was accused of having committed, but that he might be silenced as a witness against others under indictment for the same, and other crimes. Other reports state that he would, the following day, have been released on bond, and that the lives of witnesses against him have been threatened. No matter the motive, the lynching of McIntyre was without justification, and lowers the standard of the people of the county as law abiding citizens. Those who believe in organized government, in the protection of its courts for their lives and property, should assist the district attorney in apprehending the guilty parties, and they, the district attorney and other court officials should discharge a duty they owe the state by diligently searching for evidence in the case. Also, five dipping vats for cattle were dynamited west of the L'Anguille, two on the night of April 30, and three on May 4, we need to prosecute those responsible.

I then heard of the difficulty Cannelly had with Emmett Mallory. Cargill turned Connelly over to me and I took charge of him until I could go and find Mallory. Connelly was sitting on the base of the concrete flower urn and was sitting down by a tree in front of the courthouse, to which point we had proceeded upon leaving Cargill. I heard someone come up behind me and when I turned around Josh Mallory was rushing Connelly with a knife and Reuben Mallory was also going on him. I jumped up and called to them to stop. I then grabbed Josh after he had struck Connelly once. I then struggled with Josh, but he was too strong for me to handle, and broke loose from me and struck Connelly twice more. I heard Josh say, "You ......, you will abuse an old man will you:" "He also told me that he would cut me if I did not turn him loose, Mr.McDaniel and Mr.W.L.Lawrence came to my assistance and we finally succeeded in stopping them and disarming Josh. Next a statement by Sheriff J.F.McDougal, and W.L.Lawrence. Connelly had worked for Dr.C.S.Aldrich as a horseshoer, and was from Springfield, Illinois, son of James E.Connelly Sr. His daughter, Christina Marie Pitt Connelly lives in Kimmerer, Wyo.; one brother, John Connelly of Dubuque, Iowa, and another Joe Connelly, who just returned from France.
