SHOAT TALMADGE VICTIM
OF OSCAR WILLIS’ AIM
Shoat Talmadge, a negro liv
ing on the farm of Sheriff Craw
ford, was fatally wounded Satur
day night by Oscar Willis, a ne
gro living with Louis Henderson
on the Mays place. The shoot
ing occurred near Mr. ,). G. Col
Talmadge was shot in the ab
domen and lingered until Mon
day. He was carried to Atlanta
Sunday night but expired before
the operation could be performed.
There was only a slight provo
cation for the homicide, it was
declared. It appears that the
blacks were having a dance, the
participants being out in the
yard, when Willis appeared on
the scene driving a frisky mule.
The mule was driven uncomfort
ably close to some of the women
dancers and Talmadge is said to
have remonstrated mildly with
Willis for his careless driving.
This angefed Willis and he went
home and secured a pistol and
returning to the scene shot Tal
maldge at close range.
The dead man was a trusted
and valued employee of Mr.
Crawford and was known as a
lawabiding and inoffensive negro.
After the shooting Willis made
