Atlanta, September 22.-Four at
tempts at assault on white women by
negroes within or near the limits of
the city to-day, wrought white citi
zens here to a high pitch of excite
ment to-night. The assaults of to-day
followed two others of a similar na
ture within the week, and at least
half a dozen others within the last
two months and brought a climax to
night. At midnight, Governor Ter
rell issued an order calling out eight
companies of the 5th infantry and one
battery of light artillery. This or
der was not issued until three negroes
had been killed and fifteen taken to
the hospital five of whom will die.
These include only those cases which
the police have official knowledge of.
The local newspaper men claim the
number of dead is larger.
The mob began its work early In
the evening, pulling negroes from
street cars and beating them with
clubs, bricks and stones. Negro men
and women, riding to their homes
after the work of the day were ruth
lessly torn from the cars or. attacked
on the streets. In a few cases negroes
retaliated during the early part of
the night, but after 10 o'clock they
were scarce in public places. The
fire department was called out to dis
perse the mob on Decatur street, a
street most frequented by negroes and
for a time seemed to hold the crowd
at bay. The police reserves were call
ed out and will hold the fort until
troops can be mobilized. The mob
seemed to lack leadership and this
doubtless prevented greater slaugh
Seven assaults upon white women
have been made in or near Atlanta
this week. Five were committed this

of the city, was attacked in the yard,
behind her home, at 7 o'clock, and es

Fifteen Negroes Killed.
Atlanta, Snptember 22.-(1 A. M.)
The militia seems to be very slow in
mobilizing. At present there is little
excitement in the center of the city.
Fighting is reported on Peters street,
near the Terminal station. From the
Associated Press office shots are heard
- frequently. The Constiution is au
thority for the statement that fifteen
nIegroes have beei killed. One negro
is lying dead less than a block from

IS UNDER CONTROL.
Ten Lives Sacrificed and Forty Per
sons Wounded-City Protected
Atlanta, Ga., Sept. 2:3.-Twenty
four hours have passed since a race
war of .no mean proportions beigan in
Atlanta. In that period at least 10
lives' have been sacrificed, and the
nuimber of injured will he at least 40,
several of wvhom cannot recover. At
10 o'clock tonhiht the city is controll
ed by the,police aided by nearly a
thousand of the State militiii. Every
part (of town is patrolled by the sold
iers and1( the authioritics seem to have
the situation well in hand. Governor
Tlerrelhl, who ordered seven companies
of' the Ste te. military service from
poinlts outside of Atlanta to aid the
* eight local companies, stands ready
tonight to declare'-the city under mar
jal law if the scenes of last night are
repeated. HIe has declared within an
hour that he sees no necessity at pros
ent to take these extreme measures.3
Numerous and persistent rumors
- are reaching the city of negroes at
tacking white persons and stoning
street cars in the suburbs and out
skirts of the city. Most of "re re
ports doubtless are false. h' 'veral
street ena ai'riving fromo their runs
show broken windows, while their
crews are refusing to go.out tonight.
The larger part of the military is
concentrated in the downtown district,
Marietta and Decatur streets, both
frequented by negroes, are crowded
with white men. The troops are
marching through these crowds con
stantly trying to enforce the order of
the mayor that the streets shall be
cleared. The efforts to clear the
streets, however, so- far seem to be
meeting with only fair success. Very
few of the better class of citizens, who
are not called out by necessity, are on
the streets tonight.
Up to this evening more than 550
arrests have been made of members of
last night's mob, charging incitement
to riot. Five hundred dollars bond
has been required in each case.
No names of prominence are found
on this list.
Of the dead it is impossible to get
the names. Only partial lists have
been prepared and no two of these

Driticisms Published Against the Col
lege and Give Out Statement In'
. Regard to Them.
Clemson College, Sept. 20.-Fori
3everal weeks a number of citizens of
South Carolina, through the press, on
the stump and otherwise, have been
3riticising the general management of
The chief criticisms have been
about the accommodations that were
afforded the farmers at the Farmers'
Institute at the college the past sum
mner, and others have criticised a cor
tain tranaction in which nine head of
Dattle were bought for the college ex
perimental station. Other minor crit
icisms were made.
Col. R. W. Simpson, chairman of
the Board of Trustees, concluded that
the board should meet and investigate
the criticisms. Notices were sent to
the members of the board three weeks
',go that a called meeting would be
held, commencing Tuesday, September
18. In response to the notice the fol
lowing members of the board were on
hand last evening at the college: R.
W. Simpson, R. E. Bowen, M. L. Don
aldson, Alan Johnstone, Jesse H. Har
din, G. Duncan Bellinger, W. D. Ev
ans, L. A. Sense and Ivy M. Mauldin.
A telegram was received from J. E.
Bradley stating that he missed con
neetion. Mr. J. E. Wannamker wrote
that business duties would not allow
him to be present. No word was re
oeived from Senator Tillman nor from
Col. Robert Aldrich.
The board met last evening at 8
D'clock and remained in session until
1 o'clock this morning. They met
again this morning and were in ses
sion throughout the -day.
At the conclusion of the session this
afternoon the board gave out the fol
lowing signed statement to yQur Jor
respondent for publication, whieh
statement is signed by Col. R. E. Bow.

"The board beg leave to say that

information obtainable from known
experts in regard to the individual
merits and value of the nine cows nur

the Board of Trustees from Mr. J. A,.
Shanklin on a certain recent date,
and after having thoroughly inspect
ed the nine cows, puts itself upon re
Cord as approving the said purchase
by this committee, and also approves

been given by Col. Simpson to -the
said committee in regard to the facts
and circumstances which should sur

of cattle and other material for the
equipment of the experiment station,

Conditions of the Barracks.

that ini keeping and mnaint aining' a
thorough system of cleanliness and
sanuit ary re&mnla tion in the barracks of
the college, we find upon investiga
ion thait D)r. Mel I, the presidlent of

eachi sessio.n thle samte process hias been
made for thie extermination of what
ever pests, unpleasant odors, or un
healthy conditions that may be found
in (lie said barracks. The board re
grets the fact that even after the
most dliligent efforts on the pait of
the parties in charge of the cleaning
and fumigating of these barracks that
there were left some bedbugs. The
board also regrets that the ext reme
humidity of thme weather (luring the
past season while the Farmers' Insti
tute was in sessin, and before, pro
diuced unpleasant odors in the bar. i
As to Spoiled Fowls.
''The board desires to say that on ti
the occasion of the entertainment of r
he Summer School during the session c
>f 1905, the steward or bursar of our d
?ommi.;Qary department found it im- s
possible to get a suffticen! number of I
fowls or chickens from the country t
Qmrket, and found himself necessita- f
ted to resort to the cold storage estab- f
lishment of Armour & Co., and that
possibly and probably on more than t
Me occasion there were stale or spoil
ed fowls served upon the table by
an oversight or accident, Illuch to our
mortification and re.ret, if true, in
which occurrence we feel sure that
ill charitable housekeepers will sym
pathi;.e with us.
"We regret to say that the water f
used for drinking purposes while the i
institute was in progress during the
present session had a peculiar taste
for the first day or two of the insti
tute. We are pleased, however, to
state that an analysis by our compe- i
tent chemist, made immediately after I
the adjournment of the Fiarmers' In
stitute, established the fact that there
was nothing in the water that could
cause sickness. Although the water
had been pumped through the pipes
for twenty-four hours or more before
the institute opened, this did not
prove sufficient to remove the taste
from the pipe. We deem it not im
proper to say in this connection that
this water comes from a strong spring
that has always been protected fr'm
all causes of impure contamination.

''While upon this subject, we are
pleased to say that any flowers orl'
beautifying ornamentation that may

"The board feels that due diligence
has been exerted in the efforts of the
management to keep the college bar
racks up to the proper standard of
cleanliness and as it is said that 'eter
nad vigilance is the price of freedom'
from these enemies, that .continued
vigilance is exerted.
"No per diem or remuneration of
any kind has at any time or under
any circumstances been received by
any member of the Board of Trustees

Absence of the Professors.
''While the board and the faculty
have at all times desired that the cit

institute, a summer school, or as pri
