T. J. Kemper, one Mr. Capers, and two boys were standing in Kemper's wagon yard when 3 Negroes, Felix Chatman, Jim Henry and Henry Bell, ran from behind the iron house in the yard accusing someone of throwing a rock which hit Jim Henry. After an exchange of words & fist blows, Chatman obtained a 2 foot long stick from one of his companions and hit Kemper in the head with it. Kemper was left almost totally paralyzed and lying at the point of death. Kemper was described as a peacable (sic), law-abiding man recognized as a friend to almost every man who knew him. The three assailants were in Marlin, Falls, Texas on Monday a.m., then transferred to Waco at 3:00 p.m. the same day in order to avoid a threatening lynch mob.
