faction to have the count of Tuesday

It is considered assured that the

been refused by the committee, dis

was done with Mr. Grace's~ petition.

VE CHARGE OF T
night no charges had been prepared
against any of Shillady's assailants.
Shillady was returning from a
meeting with the negroes, Judge
Picke' declare, in describing the at
tack. "I told him (Shillady)," the
judge said later, "that his actions were
inciting the negroes against the
whites and would cause trouble and
warned him to leave town. I told him
our negroes woud cause no trouble if
left alone. I whipped him and order
ed him to leave because I thought it
was for the best interest of Austin and
Shillady came to Austin yesterday
and visiting the attorney general's do
'partment, it was learned today, made
inquiry concerning the Operation of
"foreign corporations" in Texas, and
asked why a local branch of the
National Association for the Advance
ment of Colored People had been dis
banded here two weeks ago. lie was
told the association had no permit to
do business in Texas and that the
disbanding of the branch was entirely
in the hands of local authorities.
Shillady thei went. to the adjutant
general's denartment, it is said, and
asked why the Texas Rangers .were
interfering with his association. As
sistant Adjutant General W. 1). Cope
is said to have replied that the rang
ers have been investigating organiza
tions among negroes since the race
"lots at Longview about a month ago
and had found that the teaching of
the Advanciement .\ssociation, "which
advocates racial equality," was creat
ing trouble between the races.
Late yetrda:.y Shillady was hal!ed
tefore a court of inquiry the proceed
ings of which have not been disclos

warned Shillady to leave Austin be
cause he was erating trouble.
Shortly before noon today Shillady
held a conference with negroes and
while retiiin bg to li- hotel was ac
costed by .udge Pickle, lHamby and
Pierce. Constable Hamby, according
to the county judge, asked Shillady
why lie was - holding meetings and
"stirring; up more trouble than Aus

"You don't see my point of view,"
answered Shillady, according to
"I'll fix you so you can see," re
plied lamby, as he struck Shillady
in the eye with his fist.
Judge Pickle says he and Pierce
loined in the fray and Shillady was
