I took place at Fifty-third and State

nearly two hours a crowd of negroes,

It seemed effectually to dampen the
spirit of eve the stragglers remaining
about the riot area, for they disappeared
without awaiting the appearance
of soldiers. Officers in command
. reported that to all appearances the ; .'

they were of the opinion that this
marked the end of the disorder which
