Attack of a Negro on a Young White
Girl Greatly Enraged the People
(Tampa Times.)
Plant City. Dec. 21-For the twenty-
four hours between late Saturday ev-
enrng until the same time yesterday
the residents of this town and neigh-
borhood were wrought up to a perfect
frenzy of excitement, and only the
skillful work of the officers here pre-
vented a "necktie party" being held
last night at which a negro named
Duncan J. Grant, would have been the
principal actor.
It was the same old story of a white
girl of youthful age narrowly escap-
ing from being the victm of the In-
tentions of a black brute, and as pre-
viously stated, if the populace had had
their way his body would before morn-
ing have decorated the nearest con-
venient pole or tree.
Miss Nancy Phillips. a young girl of
about 15 years of age, with her little
sister, Alberta Phillips,. aged about 13.
and a young man, Frank Driggers,
were making their way home along
the Hopewell road after attending a
minstrel performance here on Satur-
day evening.
When about three miles from town
they met a negro, who after passing
them came back and asked for a
match. One of the party handed him
a match, and the next act of the fiend
was to knock down Driggers with his
Having temporarily disposed of the
girls' escort, the negro seized Miss
Phillips and threw her down, her lit-
tle sister, who was paralyzed with
fear. standing mutely by.
In the scrimmage which ensued be-
tween Mis Phillips and the negro the
former's face and hands were badly
bruised and one sleeve completely
torn from her dress. but she finally
managed to get away from him and
rushed to the nearest house, about a
quarter of a mile away. The negro
followed her for some distance, but
desisted when she began to approach
the house, and made his way off.
As soon as news of the occurrence
reached here the officers and several
posses of citizens set out to scour the
country in search of the negro.
Grant was captured at the Alafila
turpentine still and taken to Plant
City. Crowds immediately gathered.
and it being evident that a lynching
was about to occur, th? negro was
smuggled out of jail and taken to


Jacksonville. Fla., Dec. 21.-The old
saying, "It's an ill wind that blows
nobody good," so far as* Joseph N.
Stripling is concerned, is fully exem-
plifled by the appointment of Senatore
P. C. Knox as Secretary of State, in
Taft's cabinet. It is like a lomb
thrown into the epmp of the Florida
Republican ad nflntration, where
Stripling is persona non grata. says
the Metropolis.
It is a well-known fact that Strip-
ling and his followers, tried last fall
to stampede the Republican conven-
tion at St. Augustine. Fla., for Knox,
and afterward stood like "the boy on
the burning deck." for Knox at the
Chicago convention until the Knox
ship went under in the the great sea
of votes for Taft.
This loyalty to Knox on Striliing's
part is thought by some of his friends
as surely deserving of a reward of a
foreign mission. It is believed that
Chubb, Combs and Cheney will give
Stripling all the assistance they can
for an appointment traveling in Egypt
or the Holy Land, for which they
think he is eminently qualified, as
Florida is too small a territory for a
man of Stripling's political genius.
Stripling. it is understood, has long
had a desire to travel on holy ground
or to distribute tracts In the Celestial
Empire, now on the verge of revolu-
