, ; Quiet Now.
E vanBville, Ind, July 7. The
morning breaks on one of the most
turbulent conditions of affairs that
could be imagined in a heretofore
peaceable community. It is be
yond conjecture how so violent an
antipathy could have arisen in the
breasts of the white population . a
gainst the colored man. As condi
tions stand today, the sight of a ne
gro, or even the mention of the
name, is sufficient to incite a riot.
Were this feeling confined to the
lower element of whites it would
not seem so strange, bat when -it
is understood that some of the best j
men in the city or state are a party
to the cry against the blacks, the
matter assumes the most grave as
pect. . ' ' :
Last night in the mob which sur
rounded the jail, and into which
the soldiery 'fired their deadly mis
sills, were seen merchants,"! clerks
and professional men, who before
have held the reputation of the
most upright citizenship.' These
would unite their voices with the
cry "exterminate the negro.". Ban
ners were carried on which was
written this expression. It is the
slogan of the mob, or populace,
whatever the vast gathering of al
leged avengers might be called.
It is reported today that a se
cret meeting was held in a subur
ban hall, which was attended by
nearly 500 people, who swore alle
giance to one another and to the
cause of ridding Evansville of the
.nagrorace, :,. J; -.
The meeting is said to have "been
orderly and was presided over by
W. K. Bloom, reputed to be a law
yer of Indianapolis. Resolutions
of condemnation were framed in re
gard to the killing of citizens by
troops last night.
Not alone is censure of the troops'
actions confined to those persons
who were members of the attacking
party on the jail, but today there
are beard on every side expressions
of repugnance for the manner in
which seven lives were sacrificed.
It is announced that a meeting
will be called by the city council
to convene at 5 o'clock this after
noon, when steps will be taken to
formulate plans by which the negro
population of the city can be gath
ered in one locality and there guard
ed until the excitement of the last
four days subsides.
Last night's experience was the
most terrible ever witnessed in this
city. At 10:30 o'clock a crowd of
3,000 persons bad gathered about
thejail and began crying, "Exterm
inate the Negro!" , Soon the shout
went up to attack the jail and Com
pany A of the first infantry, under
Captain B'oom, and 1UU special
deputies under Sheriff Chris Kratz,
prepared to defend the structare.-
Within the jail 43 prisoners lay
trembling. Half of the number
were negroes and these begged pit
eouely for protection.
Shortly before 11 o'clock the mob
f?an a forward movement and press
ed the militiamen back. The lat
ter were ' endeavoring to keep the
attacking party in control by using
bayonets. The leaders of the mob
began urging their followers to rush
the guard, and this was attempted
when, at a moment's , command,
Captain Bloom gave the order to
fire, and a fusillade of bullets ' was
fired point blank into the crowd.
There was a fierce yell as the crowd
fell back, leaving seven dead, and
15 wounded. ,
The scene that followed cannot
be described in .words. The wound
ed were crawling here and there,.
njriug iu get iu places ui Baisvy,
wnue those dead were either taken
into the jail or were carried away
by friends. . . - :.:
Angry were the murmurs which
went from the retreating members
of the mob. Threats of ' revenge
were freely expressed, and no man
can tell where the end will strike or
when it will come. . 1 '! - ,

Evansville, July 7.-rSix of those
wounded during last night's rioting
will die. The list now stands sev-
en killed and 25 wounded. Many
negroes continue to leave the city
by all routes. The colored fire com
pany deserted the engine ' house,
which is closed. All asked permis
sion to temporarily resign, which
was granted. Every thing is quiet
this afternoon, but vast throngs are
gathered about Court House Square,
where the battle took place last
night. Ropes ' have been
stretched about the jail to keep the
crowd back from tbe Sheriffs res
idence. ' Pavements about the jail
are in many places covered with
blood where the dead and dying
lay after the awful conflict. Anoth
er company of state militia has ar
rived and the request will be made
latet today for additional compan
Tacoma, Wash., July 8 The
Capitol Box Company of this city
received what is said to be the larg
est log ever loaded on Puget Sound.
8x14x40 feet, and contains 21,009
feet of lumber. It came from tbe
Skagit river, and no mill in this
state is large enough to cut it and
conssquently it -must be blown up
with powder. , '
Evansville, Ind., July 8. Eight
companies of militia and one bat
tery of artillery are now stationed
here. The governor states that he
can throw .3,000 more men into the
ity at a moment's notice, should
the situation demand it. 'It is be
lieved, however, that the presence
of the soldiers has had the effect of
quieting the disturbing element and
entirely cooling its ardor. Still
there are threats made, and this
morning several posters are seen
about the city hung during the
night which state in . glaring let
ters that when the soldiers leave
the work of avenging will be again
The list of fatalities as a result of
the riots Monday now show nine
dead, one dying, three fatally inju
ed, and 21 in serious conditions.
Sheriff Kratz is guarded within
the walls of thejail, as it is not con
sidered safe for him to appear in
the streets, owing to the intense
feeling against him for the khooting
of the members of the rioting party.
Negroes are leaving the city by
the hundreds, and by every availa
ble means. In view of this fact it
is not believed by the authorities
that any serious trouble will be oc
casioned by the enemies of the race.
It is now considered safe to - say
that the trouble is about over, and
that normal conditions will obtain
from this time on. The troops will
remain in the city probably for a
Capt. Bloom ef Co., which ea
countered the mob Monday, has is
sued a statement in which he says
that the soldiers were not to blame
for the shooting. He states that
the men shot to defend themselves,
and that the first shot was fired by
After several consultations last
night and this morning Judge
Rasch decided to order the negro,
Brown, the slayer of Policeman
Mapsey; and the direct cause of the
recent rioting, to be returned to this
city for trial. This will be done to
night if the negro is able to travel.
He will be arraigned Thursday. No
trouble is . anticipated as the
great display of troops is
considered sufficient to deter the ri
oters. " ; ' '

Baker City Or., July 6. Tha
jury today brought iu a verdict or
not guilty in the case of C. H
Wfaitney, charged with complicity
in the embezzlement of $ 10,000 of
county funds by former Sheriff
Huntington. Whitney was a dep
uty sheriff under Huntington and
puplic opinion is, vastlj in hia

sion that the verdict would be in
favor of the prisoner.
Washington. July,8 President
Roosevelt received over three
wagon loads of presents of all kinds
during his Western trip, and these
presents have been disposed of in
the White House to suit the tastes
and desires of the Peesident and
bis family.' The .heaviest ..and
bulkiest of these presents was art
immense chair made from an elk'st
horns, A big elk in the park at
Tacoma, Wash., has annually shed
his great horns. These have been
saved from year to year, and it waa
from them that the chair of tha
President was made. The chair is
so heavy that several men are re
quired for lifting and moving it.
Another rather strange present
gatheredat Tacoma was a pair of to
tem poles, the combination grave
stone and family trees of the Alask
an and Northwestern Indian. Tbese
poles, erected over Indian graves
contain curious characters which,
furnish a history of the dead.
San Francisco presented a mag
nificent gold and silver loving cup,
and Sacramento a silver and glase
claret pitcher and a handsome cigar
case. Colfax Cal., gave the Presi- '
dent a box of gold and silver ore.
Stuffed deer heads, stuffed moun
tain sheep, pheasants and lizards
were given to the President at dif
ferent points of his journey. At
one place be was given a set o"
locked deer horns, taken , from,
two large deer that had died with
their horns locked after a conflict
between them. Bridles and sad
dles were plentiful throughout that
journey., At Uheyenne tbe Jrresi-i
dent was presented with a beauuVj
ful horse, equipped with saddle,
bridle and every other necessity
tor a rider. The horse is now ia
the President's stable. . At Omaha
Homebody gave him a bridle woven.
There would of been a car full ef
live animals bad the President ac
cepted all the presents of this kind
offered, him. At three or four places
offers of live bear were made to
bim, but he declined these with
thanks.' He had brought back
however, one live present. " That
was a little badger, given to him by
a little girl at Sharon Springs,
Kan. The little badger a bright
and entertaining little fellow, was
known throughout the trip as ,
"Josiah". He was taken all the :
..way from Sharon Springs through
out the racihe Coast and bacic.
through the West on the Presiden
tial train. . 1
