Tho crime for whtck Richard H. Hawes
paid tke penalty of kla life wss the mur
der of hla wlfo and two children, May
and Irene, Tuesday morning, December
I, 1888. Tks body of May Haws waa
found floating in aa artificial lake at
Eastlske, a pleasure resort ale miles
from this city, bufit waa not IdeaUlcd
uatll theaextday. The dVioovery led
to still further lnvestliratlnn ami it
residence of Hawes was visited by sev
eral persons, who round the plaoe de-
crica ana viaonce tkat a horrible crime
had been committed. There were blood
stains oa tke floor, aad la a corner of
one of tke rooms s bloody dab wss f enad.
On the samoday it waa learned that
Hawes had been married to Mias May
Storey, at Columbia, Miss. He waa ar
rested tke aamo night while passings
through Birmingham on hla way to
Georgia to spend his honeymoon. lis
identified tho body of bis child, but
atated that ho had beea divorced from
hla wife and she bad gone away. Tho
children, he aald, had been placed in a
convent at Mobile and he waa at a loss
to understand how May's body came to
be found where It wss.
Tho palpablo improbability of suck a
story convinced those who heard Hawes
statement that ho had murdorod tho
rest of tho family, and by tho direction
of thn coronor the lake was drained and
tho bodies of Mrs. Hawes and llttlo
Irene, heavily weighted with railroad
iron, were found on tho bottom.
Tho finding of Mrs. Hawes' corpse
Inflamed the public mind to a state of
frenzy All tho efforts of the press of
tho city and the county authorities to
allay the excitement wero futile. Ths
jail was stormed by 10,000 persons de
termined to lynoh tho murderer. The
sheriff ordered a halt, but the mob re
plied with cries of derision and pressed
forward. The order was given to ths
guard to fire and a volley resulted la
the killing of tea persons aad tks
wounding of many more. Tke spirit of
tho mob was broken and It never re
turned to tho attack, contrary to the ox
pectatlon of tho authorities, who had la
tho meantime telegraphed to tho Gov
ernor for nillltta.
Tho trial of Hawes began April 34
and lasted eleven days.
