STATE TROOPS CALLED OUT Atlanta, Ga., Sept 26.?The known dead, who have met death in connec? tion with the riots here since last Sat? urday night, number one white man and 18 negroes. To this number might be added the name of Mrs. Robert P. Thompson, an estimable white woman, who dropped dead Monday evening as tws negroes were shot and beaten In her sight The third day of Atlanta's race war passed without serious disturbance. Rumors literally by the hundreds have been brought to the attention of the authorities and to the newspapers, but not in a single instance had any of the stories been verified. Four attempts at assault on white women by negroes within or near the limits of the city wrought white citi? zens here to a pitch of excitement. The assaults followed two others of a similar nature within the week and at least half a dozen others within the last two months, and brought a sllmax Saturday night The usual Saturday night crowds were largely Increased by men and boys, who thronged the downtown streets. There was no leader and no overt act until late in the evening. A negro man shoved a white woman from the sidewalk on Whitehall street, in the centre of the town. Almost si? multaneously a negro woman made an insulting remark to a white man on an adjoining street, and he adminis? tered what he considered duo punish? ment. From this start the mob began Its work of destruction. Five thousand men and boys thronged the downtown streets look* ing for negroes. New? that a riot had started brought thousands more from their homes in the suburbs and residence districts, until fully 10.000 men thronged the downtown section. They mad?? attacks on the Incoming street cars Kadi car was scanned for negroes. The trolleys were pulled from the wir?-s, and in the semi-dark ness of the unllghted care negroes were heatnn, cut and stamped upon in an unreasoning, mad ft? a no gro ventured resistane*? or reraonstrat ed it meant practically sure death. One car. half filled with negroes, ap? proached from an outside run. The mob dashed for the car. Resistance wee msde by the negroes, who had not been apprised of trouble. Three ne? groes lay dead on the floor of the car when It was permittag to move on. snd two more were seriously beat? en and unconscious. The entire fire department was called out to clear th?? streets, and when that niov?? failed the governor was called on to on!, r out the militia, snd he promptly coni piled. The attacks on negroes had the ef? fect of clearing the streets of blacks. Street hacks were abandoned at eurb lngs; drivers on baggage wagons Ished and their places were taken by white meu. This fear of trouble has affected several public conveniences Sunday. The postofnoe officials had much difficulty In delivering special ?; ice deliveries have been ?caree to private hornea; Is some restaurants service has been restricted by the ab? sence of recular waiters. Throughout the day hundreds of negroes have been fleeing the city, by train and wagon and on t>- irled from the city, fearing the possibilities of trouble in the immedalte future.
