OUR RALEIGH LETTER
Gov. Glenn Will Order Special Term
TO TRY ANSON LYNCHERS.
Maximum Punishment is Fifteen Years
in the Penitentiary The DlHgrace
Ih Twofold Conmellceinents at
Two of the State's luulltu.
tlous of Learning
Gorman News Bureau,
lialeigh, N. C, June 4.
Governor Glenn will this week
order a special teim of court to try
the fifteen men anested last week
for the lynching of the white man
Johnson at Wadesboro all of whom
are now out on bail in the sum of
five thousand dollars each. They
will be tried under a law enacted
some twelve years ago and which
hxes the maximum punishment at
fifteen years in the penitentiary.
lule we all know that their con
viction is a very doubtful matter,
it doe seem that an opportunity is
now presented for a most wholesome
vindication of the law that would
have a good effect in the future in
this state. According to evidence
so far made public this was no or
dinary case of lynching, but one of
the most horrible instauces in the
history of the state, in that the vic
tim who was cruelly tortured before
the hanging was an insane mau vho
had ke.i treated for lunacy in a
private institution from which he
had leenwithdrawu, not cured, but
because he and his family were un
able to longer bear the pecuniary
expenses of his continued treatment
The disgrace which has been
brought upon the state is therefore
twofold because the state failed to
provide for his incarceration and
care in one of the puolic hospitals
for the insane, there being no room
on account of the lack of adequate
facilities. Had he been committed
to a state hospital he would not
have killed his brother-in-law and
might have been cured and restored
to healtk and citizenship, in which
cise, of course, no lynching would
have occuried. Vr. Aiurpny, or
the western hospital for the insane,
and Mr. Taylor, of Broadoaks Sani
tarium, where Jonnson was treateu,
are both reported to have stated that
there was no doubt ot jonnson s in
So it l'eally seems that tne state
itselt is responsible on account of its
own negligence for not only the dis
grace that has been urrugnt uon .
it through the lynching of Johnson,. .
but for the sacrifice of the liies of .
two of its citizens.
