March lS.-The Galveston Xews has printed the alleg ed confession of a discharged negro soldier in explanation of the midnight riot of negro soldiers of the Twenty lift h infantry who "shot up” Browns ville. Tex., on Aug. 13, 190li. A state ment was made by one of the discharg ed negro soldiers to two reporters, and thus after seven mouths of investiga tion by the authorities of the United States what appears to be the true version of the riot has come to light. The discharged soldiyr admits that he participated in the riot. This man lias been living in Galveston since he and many others of the Twenty-fifth infantry were discharged without hon or by order of President UooBCvelt from tin1 military service. According to the negro, the outrage was not premeditated, but was the re sult of an alleged Injury done one of tile soldiers by a white man in Browns ville about a half hour before tile riot started. The negro was struck by the white man at a resort in Brownsville. The negro, returning to the barracks, seized his rltle and announced that he nat going to Km me none unni. isei oral other negroes promptly volunteer ed to go along to wipe out old scores against white citizens on account of injuries they had suffered. The negroes returned to the barracks after committing the assault on the town, and many soldiers assisted in the hurried cleaning of the guns for the Inspection which followed soon after the shooting censed. According to the alleged confession, the soldiers from only one company of Hie Twenty-fifth infantry participated in tlie riot, although nearly an entire battalion, later discharged, knew that soldiers had done the shooting. Many of the negroes belonging to this battalion enlisted in (ialveston during the summer of tltOO and re turned to the city after being discharg ed from the army. The returned sol diers. it is said, were advised by negro politicians to avoid newspaper men. tint two reporters filially procured the alleged confession through the fact Unit the negro concluded that they were United States secret service de tectives and let tfl^ secret out. The man who talked to the reporters said his name was 1). <’. (bay and that lie was formerly a private ill <'.1:11 ‘ puny B of the Twenty-lit lb infantry."
