140 years ago today - 26 August 1883 - Sunday

[George Q. Cannon]

The news reached us today of the organization of a mob at Park City after hearing the news of the lynching of the negro at Salt Lake. This mob proceeded to Coalville and took from the jail a man who had been accused of the murder of a man of the name of Murphy. They took him back by rail to Park City and hung him.
