(0orgotown, Oct. L.-The Georgo
town raco riot doos not materialize,
at least it looks so up to midnight.
Tho troublo arose Saturday evening
when J. C. Scurry, a deputy shoriff
went into a barbor shop to collect
delinquent taxos from a nogro bar.
ber, John Browniiold. A dispute
arose and words camo to blows. In
the scuflo tiht followed Scurry's
pistol droppod from his pocket antid
was snapped up1 by the negro,
(Brownliold), who ii rapid succos
sion, fired live shots at Seurry, each
taking offect in sonio part of his body.
Tho negro then 11-3d but was captur
od by a policeman and placed in jail.
Scurry died at 10 o'clock Sunday
morning. Excitoment ran high, for
it was considorod coldbloodod mur
der. The coronor's jury was com
posgod of white m1en.
A rumor was circulated among tho
negroes that the white men during
the night would ring the firo boll,
and when the negroes would rush to
their engines then the whites would
run to the jail, take Brownfield out
and lynch him. This is exactly
what tho negroes did themselves
about 7:30, and heforo the boll was
through ringing, by prearrangoment,
between 800 and 1,010 negroes
gathered around tio jail with guns
nnd rifles, to prott e, as they said,
the negro from being lynched. The
ringing of the fire bvl was accom
paniod by screams amid yells from
the negro women and children.
Mayor \V. D. Morgan, Sheriff
Skinner an(d others vent to the jail
and tried to persuado them to dis
perse, but they tol ! them flatly that
they would not. Capt. S. M. Wiard,
of the Georgetown .ifle Guards,
called out hi'4 com" pay ', and they
have been under arms over wince.
About 3 o'clock (I i morning the
negroes loft the jail but Ireoly
threatened to burn the town. Then
it was that Mayor Morgan u ired Uov.
McSwoonoy for Military help.
A number of negroes were in town
today but no outward demonstration
Company 11. of Sumter, under
command of Capt. H. Fraink WVilson,
in response to a telegram) from Gov'.
McSwooney, called out his company,
and( in 35 minutes 37 teen were at
the depot and boarded the train for
Georgetown. They arrived at 9 :1 0
and were muot by the Georgetown
Rifles andl escorted to the armory,
where refreshments are now being
served. A special from Charleston
b)earing 180 men with (Gatling an-d
Hochkiss guns, in addition to other
arms left Charleston at 8:40.
At 1 :05 a. m. only a few negroes
are to be seen on the streets and
everything is apparantly as qluiet as
a May morning. Some arrests will
be made tomorrow, but this will not
create any disturbancos, for the ne
groes seem overawed by t he presence
of the militiamen.
Early this morning Mr. Josiah Doar
was shot through the leg by the acci
dental discharge of, a gun in the
hands of a militiaman. HoI may
lose his leg.

NEoRIO woMEN wURU RIPE FORl MAssA(0nE.
Georgetowna, Oct. 2.-Main street
this morning presented a scone which
would do credit to Manila. Soldiers
marched, drums were beating and
the wvhole fown apparently was
under military rule. But such was
not the case. Mayor Morgan and
the councilmen to whom were added
several prominent cit izens, constitu
ting an advisory hoarti, wore in se's.
sion and have been discussing what
was best to dt) in the promiseP.
About noon it was given out that 20
warrants had been issued for the
arrest of the ringleaders in the dis
turbance of sandmy night and these
were served this artornoon. Walter
Denison. a negro barber, is'o onsidr-.
id tho ringlw-der, and is be)ig birp]
mspOlsible, ill it 1lar1go illllitrr o, for
the exciteiet Sunday night.
The negroes in (own (o:lay ar-o
residents and all those fromn te conn
try who wore iero yesterday have
disappmarmd from thostreots. Thero
wis no Oxcitoment of aty kind last
night savo the arrival of tho soldiers
fromi Sumpter mind Charleston, and
)efor0 3 o'clock t his Morning very
soldier was sound aslop on the soft
sidof i plank in the armory and
other buildings provided for their
rest i ng place.
Tho Charleston soldiers rotturned
today, but thei Saitor boys will bo
held over until 6:30 tomorrow morn
iug, roac.hing their homes about 9:30.
It was impossible to give all the
facts in the dispatches sont last iight,
and a roview of the incidents that
caused the military to b sent here
may not be armiss. Whilo it is not
generally admitted by som11 it is bo
liovod that by the thoughtless ro
marks of a fow hot head-i Sunday
aftornoon the negroes believed that
John Brownfiold would be taken from
the jail SuIntday night and lynched,
and that the ringing of the fire alarm
would be at sigual. At tho first sound
of tho bell, theirofore, there was a hue
indi a cry raised, especially by the
negro womon, and I here was i gen
oral rush for the jai), eac'h bearing
some kind a wfeapon. from a rico reap
book to a rifle, arnd in a feW minutes
1,500 negroes wero around the jail
and in the stroots adjoining. The
whites at, firbt did not understand the
moaning of this outpour and some of
the prominont citizens, itcludirig
Mayor W. D. Morgan, Col. Spark
ham, Sheriff Skinner and others,
wont anongst the mob and told thmin
that no one was going to lynch John
Brownfield. Hero the rice field vi
rago, the longth of whoso vindictive
tonguo has never yet boon assertain
Od, got in her vilest work.
"Don't go home omens like the buck
ra men tell you; stay here and save
John. Bun do dan town down to
ashes. Yunner kill all do buckra and
we will 'tend to the buckra o,;man
an:1 chillun. Do buckra want to run
over us, but wo will show dem."
These and ot her remarks followed in
rapid sucession and the consequence
wias that pandmoniun roigned
supreme. Tho Georgotown R0le;
were summone and remained in
their armory all night awaiting or
ders. Mayor Morgan understands
the nogro well. As far as he is con
corned, he was unwilling to call on
the governor for troops, but yielded
to the juidgemnent of others whom ho
called into consult at ion. A s soon as it
was Iearned that'the troops were cow
ing the leaders among the nogroes ad.
vised thorm to go home arnd stay there
whichr they have done. It seems as
if this negro, John Brownfield, was
a loader in the society of coondomi as
wvell as a member of the Odd Fellows
and other organizations. It was be
lieved that a large stock of arms wvas
stored in a cer-tain ball in town arid
an committee was sent today to seize
themn, but it proved to be false.
It soms as if the trouble is noEv
over, but how lung the peace between
the races will prevail cannot b)e knowvn
As generation after generation
grows up, as we get further and fur

betwoonr master and slave, a fooling
