WHITECAPPERS AT WORK
Drive Negro Hands from an Arkansas
Sawmill and Close it.
WYNNE, Ark., Aug. 22- A Deputy Mar-
shal has arrested eleven prominent white
planters from Poynsett County on the charge
of whitecapping. The prisoners will be ta-
ken to Helena to appear before the United
States District Court.
The negro laborers employed at a sawmill
in Poysett County were recently forced to
leave under threats of violance by a band
of white planters, causing the mill to sus-
pend. The arrests were made at the inti-
gation of the mill owner.
