lo the efforts of the whites fo ai.onge the
murder of Marshal Nowberry of Jakln
by a negro preacher continues. Ths
whites aro going through the country
side in bands shooting nnd whipping
negroes and burning their churches,
lodge rooms nnd school houses.
At least six negros havo been killed
siiidt the trouble started on Wednesday
night and nearly ono hundred have been
whipped, Five negro lodge rooms, six
churches and four school houses have lieen
burned. The whites aro seeking tho
slayer of Marshal Newberry, but the
negro preacher apparently has escaied.
Tlm negroes are fleeing to other places
as rapidly on possible. It is predicted
that there will not be a negro left In this
section of Georgia in a week.
The whites allege that the murder of
Marshal Nowlx-rry was decreed at a negro
lodge meeting and that the Hev. Jim West,
a negro leader, vas. appointed to carry
out the decree.
A largo shipment of whiskey was re
ceived at Jakln to-day nnd the crowd has
begun to drink heavily and brandish re
volvers in each others' faces. The morn
peaceable of the whites have lioon doing
nil in their powor to end the troubla and
let file law lake a hand, This has en
raged tho moro vicious element of the

The Sheriff of Early county Is on tho

The Flowers Lumlier Company has been
fonod to shut down Its large sawmill
because not enough negroes aro on hand
to do the work. Turpentlno interests

So far no appeal has been made to the

that unless troops are ordered out there
is no telling where tho trouble will end.

in a number of white heron which are mak

Is feared because the nlgrettes can be
obtained only when the bird is raising

London, Aug. 10. Tho great British
railway strike came to an ubrupt end this
evening. The cIobo was even more
dramatic In its suddenness thnn was the
declaration of tho strike. To tho very
moment of tho official announcement, of a.
settlement tho course of thn negotiations
was kept an absolute secret. Even Ih
most optimistic thought that Sunday
with its meetings would pass before a
settlement could Ikj reached.
There seems little doubt that the pres
sure of public opinion, wlthoutany special
regard to tho righto or wrongs of either
side but honestly shocked at the situation
so rapidly reached, has had a sobering
effect on the companies and the Govern
ment especially the Government and the
strikers. The companies and the strikers
apparently realized to some extent that
they were In a Frnnkcnsteinlike situation.
They had become alarmed at the mon
strous situation they had created, while
