Indianapolis. Ind., July 7. A dan

nue, at 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon,
lc t ween a party of southern cadets of
Macon. Ga.. and several negro toughs,
and for a time it seemed as if the most
serious consequences would result.
The southern boys were passing down
the thoroughfare when they were guyed
by a negro bootblack. The boys took it
trood-n at u redly for a time, but finally
cot angry and advanced on the negro,
who was surrounded by a numlier of
.rider ones who were encouraging the
insults. The bootblack threw his box
it one of the whites striking him a
stinging blow upon the head.
The crowd then advanced upon the
negroes, who broke and ran into a
negro saloon near by, the whites fol
lowing. As the latter entered they
were confronted by some twenty or
more negroes and a perfect volley of
spittoons, brickbats and stones were
hurled at them. Nothing daunted, the
whites grabbed what missiles they
sould and returned the volley, knocking
a half dozen negroes down. Freeman,

billiard cues. Edwards came to Free
man's assistance, and Lynch was soon
stretched upon the floor, bleeding from
a dozen ugly wounds in his head. An
other negro rushed upon Freeman with
a razor and gave him a gash in the left
cheek extending from the mouth to the
back of the jaw. Williams, another of
the Macon lioys, was beaten terribly
over the head with a billiard cue, and
Hradford and Itonner, who were trying
to defend him, were both badly hurt
by spittoons which struck them on the
head, making ugly wounds, from which
the blond flowed freely.
When the fight was at its hottest, the
police entered and arrested the com
batants, both white and colored, and
restored order. The southerner were
taken to the office of the police sur
