RACE RIOT THREATENED
Serious Trouble May Occur In North Carolina
Charlotte, N. C., August 7.—Serious trouble between negroes and whites is threatened at Henrietta, the location of one of the largest cotton mills in North Carolina.
Otis Bird and Virgil Cudd were cut last night and the former will die.
The cause of the trouble was the alleged disturbing of a negro meeting by whites and the cursing of a boy by a negro.
An armed crowd of negroes was dispersed by the extra force of police on duty, but more trouble is expected.
