Possibilities of Intervention.
Today brought forth almost sim

State or Feederal intervention be

quaintanee with local conditions t<
be heavy with danger of race trouble
It is admitted that either Federal oi
State authorities can run the trains
and preserve armed order, but if th<
railroad insists on its rights to negr<
firemen it is feared that racial enmit
and reprisals on negroes will be stir
ried up in regions remote from thf
railroad tracks. It is piinted ou
thit not until the lynching of a ne
gro at IUneointon, Ga., shortly aftei
the strike began had there previous
lv been a deliberate lynching in Geor
gia for nearly two years. Negroe;
bave met violent deaths during tha
time, but they were killed while re
Chairman Knapp, of the Inter
State commerce commission, will ar

is understood he comes only to in
vestigate and to offer friandly ser
vices, the fact that interruption o:

his v'>t may lead to some degree o:
State Could Operate Road.
ofState intervention with.>ut thie us'
offorce was proposed today by par
ties heretofore neutral in the nego
Itiatians. Representative Hooper Al
exander, of the State legislature, an
nounced that he made the followins
proposition to the governor, namely
that the exclusive privilege of th<
Georgia Railroad and Banking comn
pany to opt-rate~ trains over its line
expired in 1881, thirty-six years afte
the completion of the road, and tha
now, therefore, the State can operat'
trains over tthe lines legally, the sam
as the road's lessees. Another pro
positon was for receivership by th
State. on the grounid of public wel
fare and necessity.
The status of arbitration for set
tlement has remained unchanged. a]

delayed for nearly twelve hours bha

Evans, of the Louisville and Nash
ville railroad. His presence was es
sential to further arbitration nego
tiations. He arrived tonight.
Race Issue Develops.
T:he race issue developed today i1
what constitutes probably its tw<
strongest holds on the Southern peo
ple. The first of these was the un
animity shown by an entire communm
tv in resenting the forcing of negroe
into their midst in a capacity t<
which they chose to object. Thi
feeing was evident within an hou
.after nine negro firemen went ou
on mail trains this morning. Th
other sentime.nt was the instinct o
Southern employers to stand loyall;
'by negroes who have rendered then
long and faithful service. Such il
a large measure, was the characte
of the negroes who fired the train
Because t.hese negroes have bee
faithful, and because the railroad in
sists upon recognizing their long ser
vice, and has given them semiorit;
over white men of shorter service,i
one of the causes of the strike.
Something stronger even than ra
ial feeling hinds together the comn
munity of whites which is backin;
the striking firemen, and this is bloo,

and other employees have been large
