Racist agitation it appears was the rule of the day for this issue of the Seattle Times 100 years ago to the day. 
Note how both stories, one in Oklahoma and the other in Oregon both feature “500 men” going after just one or two individuals.  Gimme a break, weirdo past.

Behold the genocide.  This is a partial listing of lynchings from this era.  In which Daniel Dove, the vicitim, is listed.  Now for the the men behind their masks, who were they?  Good question.  That’s why they wore the masks!
