First Violence to Railroad Property
Occurs When Engine With Negro
Fireman Is Sent To Move Cars.
Atlanta, da,, May 29. First vl -len.-e
to railroad property In the (lenru
railroad firemen's strike wa3 ffeied
Friday night to u moving freight .it
Llthonla, Ga. In consuitunie i.te raco
situation looms more uha.ply th no.v.
in the trouble, notwithstanding a oiy
ot much apparent prrgtess toward set
tlement. A ne;ro fln an jppureutly
was the cause of the trouble. He wuj
rushed to Atlanta on iui ein'ne t.) save
hlin f loin violence. 'I he trouble start
ed with lh throwing rf one or two
stones and the 'lourd'n? of the freight
by men who set the brakes and broke
the trMn In three see Ions. The train
now bloeks the miln line and the
pirirress of the malls.
The railroad olllcers declared Friday
night that the Incident was the work
of sympathizers, while a county official
v:red the governor's olllco that It was
merely an accident
An engine left here late Friday night
for Llthonla to bring a train load of
perishable provisions from the siding
at Llthonla Into Atlanta. Assurances
have been given for several days that
In the Interest of local shippers whose
valuable cars were tied up no demon
stration would he made against haul
ing these cars to Atlanta.
When the engine reached the Llth
onto siding nbout dusk, It was seen
that It carried a negro fireman, as did
the mall trains which passed through
Ll'honla earlier In the day, exciting
About 200 people gathered at tha
station, and Just as the train was get

officials, several men boarded the cars,
set the brakes and cut off the air, caus
ing the last car to breHk loose from
tho train. They also uncoupled the en
glue, leaving Its load stalled. Accord
ing to the railroad's statement no at
tempt was made by local authorities
to Interfero with the nttnek. It Is be
lieved the railroad officials will at
tempt to clear the track at Llthonla
for the mall trains early Saturday and
that deputies will be used to protect
the train crews In the work.
Friday brought forth almost simul
taneously the possibilities of speedy
slate or federal Intervention, believed
by many persons of wide acquaintance
with local conditions to be heavy with
danger of race trouble.
It Is admitted that either federal or
Mate authorities can run the trains
and with armed forces preserve order,
but If the railroad Insists on Its rights
to hire negro flremen it Is feared racial
enmity nnd reprisals on negroes will
br- stirred up In regions remote from
the railroad tracks. The state Is a
s'orkhnlder In the road.

PRESBYTERIAN MINISTERS AND
LAYMEN MUST NOT USE
IS EDICT OF THE ASSEMBLY
Delegates After Debate Decide That
Judges Who Belong to Church May
Issue Licenses for Saloons Taft
and Katser Praised.
Denver, Col., May 28. Clergymen
and Inymon should not use tobacco,
but It Is not contrary to tho principles
of the church for Presbyterian Judges
to grant saloon licenses. This was
decided by tho general assembly of
the Presbyterian church.
Tho ussombly thus expressed itsolf
in approving the report of the tem
perance committee after a long dis
cussion. The report commended
President Taft, Emperor William und
former President Eliot of Harvard for
being teetotnlers; and urged the min
isters of tho church to petition con
gress to stop Interstate shipments of
liquors, to discontinue tho issuance
of International revenue receipts , In
prohibited territory, and to prohibit
ilie use of the mulls for the distribu
tion of liquor or advertisements of
Rev. Elllsworth Rich of Watson-
vllle, CaL, Introduced the resolution
thnt ministers should not use tobacco.
A lavmari arose and declared Mr.
Rich should lncludo laymen. This was
done awl the resolution was adopted
A commissioner then urged tho
adoption of u resolution that Presby
terian Judges should rofilse to grant
licenses for saloons oven though It
bo their duty under the law. Sev
oral speakers at once opposed this
with tho urgument thnt a Judge should
not bo criticised for his actions under
the law, but the llrst speaker demand
ed that Judges when confronted with
such ji situation resign the bench
rather than grant the license. Com
missioners from Pennsylvania said
thnt It was the legal duty of tholr
district Judges to issue such licenses
and opposed the resolution.
"God grant that our Judges do not
resign upon such an occasion," said
one commissioner, "for it will only
pave tho way for worse ones."
The resolution was defeated.

Tho matter of "modern theology
nnd courses of study to meet with
modern conditions," camo up in the
report of the committee on theological
seminaries. The recommendation said
(hat while there was a demand for
udvanced teaching the doctrines ot
the church are sufficient to meet mod
ern conditions. Instructors were criti
cised because of their alleged failure
to npply the Presbyterlnu doctrines
to the best advautago.
The report of the committee on
church erection was adopted except
for a resolution recommending a mu
tual Insurance organization for tho
protection of church property.
