I find this an unusual article in a North Carolina newspaper--orig. printed in "Springfield Republican," but I am assuming the NC paper is Democrat and it's a surprising reprint. Discussion of a mass lynching in New York in colonial period. Slavery/racism are an American problem, not only Southern. Thin veneer of civilization over human cruelty. Mention of torture in Philippines at beginning and end of article.
