A serious race riot was averted bj the timely arrival of troops, which were summoned from Natchez short ly after the 'trouble started. -Most of the killings were deliber ate, the negroes, until they were toinered in a cottonseed lioiiho, .Mooting at anyone they saw in the street. They shot down two train men and a passenger and iired through the windows of a pafcsenger train and a I'ullmaii sleeping car. Sheriff Hainmett was killed while trying to rush the seed houbo.

Tl'olr mother said ono had , , -f- "- . remarked that he was going iT The shooting started in the negro' quarter, when Walter Jones, heavily armed, started out to "shoot up the town." He killed a negro woman and Thead Grayson. Then he went to his home and awakened his younger brother and they started out together. Together the hoys proceeded thiough the main street, firing at everyone in sight. Citizens aroused by tho shots peered out of tho win dows and then hastened to cover, believing, they said to-day, that se- rious riots had broken out. The boys went fnun their home to the home of forJnr Constable Finnic Kelnstly, called him to tlie door nnd Walter Jones shot him through the head, killing him in stantly. Kelustl's son, William, when he saw his father fall, grabbed a gun, but before he could lire re ceived a bullet in one, of his hands. Leaving tho Kelnstly home the negroes went to the Yazoo it Missis blppl Valley depot, nearby. There they shot down without warning Conductor E. B. Appleby and Flag man W. C. Bond of a train that hud Just arrived from Natchez. Then they dhected their liro at Claude Freeman, who wii.s waiting for a 'rain to take him to lit homo nt Fayette, Miss. He was Instantly killed, , The negroes then Iired into the train, terrorizing tho passengers, but hurting no ono. A sleoplng car ft om Natchez for Now Orleans Is loft hero every night to uwnlt a through train from Memphis. This car was made tho target for the no- groes bullets after the train fron Natchez left. Many windows wen- broken. but none of tho passongois was hurt With tho blood lust at tho highest pitch the two negroes made their way to a cottonseed house nearby. It Is believed thoy then realized they could not long continue their killings without opposition and de termined to make their last stand at tho seed house. Frightened citizens by this tlmo hnd tolophojicd for Sheriff Ilanuuett, of Fayette Accompanied by former .Sheriff OtUis, Hammett started for Harrison on horseback, arriving about " o'clock. Several men were tiring Into the seed house, but'po one had ventured to rush the place Calling for volunteers Sheriff HamiqoU prepared to rush the (bulld'iK. j0vvcrul men voluutoeml and began creeping townrd th building. Seeing this move, Walter Jones ran to a patch of weeds nearby. As Hammett approached, the negr fired, killing him instantly. A shot from the Heed houss brought down Gllliri. By tills time the countryside had been aroused nnd farmers cams pouring In from every direction Everyone began firing at tho seei house. In tho meantime a call was sent i to Gov. Brewpr for troops. Finding his hiding place In tha grass too precarious. Will Jones started to run towards a coal chuta nearby. lie had gone but a few steps when he fell dead with a bul let through his heart. A rope was placed around the body, and it wa strung up to a telegraph pole ana riddled with bullets. Soon after. his brother was killed, Walter .To-ies shot Tom Weeks, a ne gro working on tlie coal chute. Weeks fell from the chute to tha ground, a distance of fifty feet. Eith er tlie bullet wound or tho fall would have killed hfm. Not long after Weeks was killed, the special train bearing the Natchez guardsmen arrived. Their arrival seemed to row the desperado and ai tho soldiers were detrained, th& posse rushed tlie seed house. Not a shot greeted them. Jones, com pletely unnerved hut uninjured, wai found cowering in a corner. A rope, quickly procured, was placed around the negro's neck and he wns rushed to tho coal chute. As tho negro was drawn up the ropa broke and he fell heavily to tha ground. Jones stood quietly whllw a larger rope was drawn around ills neck and again lie was pulled up. The crowd looked on until life was extinct, without attempting to avoid thenpproachlng militiamen. After hanging the negro the raoc. 'went to. tho homo of tlie despera does. There f'v found two negro men and were about to lynch them who'i olllrere arrived. It seems certain that the negroes had planned details of their mur derous night. They were well armed an,il lmd a plentiful supply of anuuu- "shoot up" tlie town, but sh, thought him Joking. .Whether thr two negroes found there .and who were arrested, know of the plans of tho Jones brothers, is not known. Several hours after It was thought tho dead and woundrd had all been found, the body of Teller Warren, a negro, was discovered in a hut, lu the negro quarter, wwre Walter Jones first began firing. Evidently Warren was one of the first victims but Just when lie was shot Is not known. Twenty poisons wore Injured, fourteen of thorn negroes. None of the negroes was dangerously hurt. As there wore no signs of further trouble after Walter Jones was lynched, the Natchez guardsmen re turned homo to-ulght. Generally tho negro population was ns much Incensed at the Jonca brothers as were tho whites. Thor felt no Indignation at the lynching. To-night the bodies still wor hanging to the tonl elm to and pro'j ably will all night. Authorities have decided not to hold an inquest. CHANCE FOR CHILDREN TO WIX FINE .MEDAL Washington, Sept. 2'J.
