LYNCHING IN KIMBLE COUNTY

Junction City, Kimble Co. Texas, Nov 15--
The News:  On Friday. November 9, a Mexican in the employment of James Pepper, a ranchman on the South Llano, near Junction City, was arrested and brought into town by Marion Smith on a charge of assault upon the wife of James Pepper.  He was lodged in the county jail.  On Monday night, the 12th, about 11 o'clock, an armed party rode into town from the South Llano and entered the dwelling of Wm. McSwain, the jailor, presented firearms and demanded the keys of the jail which McSwain finally gave up.
    The attacking party immediately took the Mexican prisoner off and hanged him on a tree in the bottom by the river a short distance from the jail.  Up to the present time no arrests have been made.  Sheriff Corder was not in Junction City on Monday night:  he had gone to Kerrville on business and did not return  until Tuesday morning.
