Ga.,SeDt 24. -The race war situation tooight assumed its gravest appearance when a pitched battle followed the ambushing by negroes of a party of policemen in South Atlanta. County Policemen James Heard was killed. Police men Jordan and Kukanks were dangerously wounded and two officers were injured.

Negroes retreated when the soldier3 appeared in force and are now sur rounded in the swamps. A heavy killing of blacks is very possible. Four of the negroes were captnr. ed, and under a heavy guard of soldiers, were safely lodged in the city jail. The attack upon the officers which resulted in Heard's death and the wounding of other police men was, according to the most reliable reports, of the most atroc ious character. It occurred in the south side negro settlement.Twelve soldiers were oa their way to pro tect this part of the city from poss ible bomb violence by the whites. The ofSrs were in a body, when from an alley the negroes opened fire. The attack was entirley un expected and the casuality occurr. ed before the policemen had an op portunity to defend themselves. The injured officers returned the fire and believed that they injured a number of the negroes but owing to the darkness of the alley in which the latter were hidden, were unable to determine definitely what damage they inflicted. The negroes greatly outnumbering them, the policemen retired, leaving the dead and injured officers in the street.
