Note.  The following article was copied form the 1895 Austin Daily Statesman.  It depicts a very graphic account of vigilante justice which occurred in Corsicana, but was not uncommon anywhere in the US during the turn of the century. This article is posted with some reservations but I feel it is important to understand the issues, events, and emotions of the times as part of seeing the whole picture of our past.    ..elw
