Wilburton, I. T., Oct. 28—Great ex
citement was caused in Wilburton and
vicinity over an attempted rape by a 17-
year-old negro boy by the name of Ham-
ilton upon a 9-year ol 1 white girl by the
name of Maggie McElroy.
It seems that the little girl had been
kept in at a school until after the other i ^
scholars had gone home, and the attempt T®:
was made while she was on her way' ®
home- She was badly choked and
frightened and her screams alarmed the
The negro, taking fright, desisted in
hi9 attempt. Hamiltou was quickly ap-
prehended, given a speedy trial in the
commissioner's court and bound over to
the fall term of the criminal court in
South McAlester. He was transfeired
by the first train to the South McAlester
jail, owingto fearsof lynching, threats
were indulged in and it is understood
that an organized movement to that ef-
fect was under way.
