Redmen Case to Come to Trial in 1911


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 4/25/1911.

The thirteen persons indicted under the Red Man Act at the August, 1910, term for complicity in whipping Scott Williams, a Holiness preacher, and Albert and Wesley Poling, were held under bond to appear at the August term.  The case will be heard at that term.  The preacher, who is the State's most important witness, is now located in Oklahoma.  Several witnesses were examined by the grand Jury in effort to secure more indictments.
