ATLANTA, May 17.-Four white men
and three negroes dead; five white men
and one negro wounded, and an en
tire block of buildings burned Is the
result of a conflict that began here
early today between tbe police and
blacks. Will Richardson, who ls be
lieved to have been bait Indian and
halt negro, the owner of a store In
McDaniels street, In the suburb of
Pittsburg, and four other negroes
brought on the trouble by resisting a
re and 'defying .the officers' of Ful
ton county and Atlanta.
The fight between the officers and the
negroes occurred In Pittsburg, a negro
settlement directly south el the city
limits en MeDaiilel street.' The officers
attempted to arrest five negroes, sus
pected, of having beaten former Police
man Kerlln nearly to death yssterday
afternoon, 'i The negroes resisted arrest
by, entrenching themselves In a house,
and the light resulted. As soon as tn
fcrmatlon of the flghbetween the ne
groes 'and the officer reached the city;
wagon loads of policemen heavily arm
ed were byrrled to the scene, and Gov
ernor Chandler ordered out a detach
ment of the state militia.
The shooting was followed by a
speech from Sheriff Nelms, of Fulton
county, advising calmness oa the part
the house. The door was throwiTopen
and Will King, a negro, ran out and
surrendered." Inside the house Rich
ardson had an unobstructed view la
three direction. One block away Po
liceman Tom' Grant, who was among
those summoned to the scene, stepped
from tils shelter to flre Into the house.
A shot rang out from the besieged
house and Grant fell dead.
The attacking party hastily ' pent
word to police headquarters and chief
of Police Ball dispatched the reserves
to the scene in several patrol wagons.
The officers determined to make um
of King, tbe negro who bad surren
dered, and at' the point of a Wliwhev
ten tbey forced him to walk- ap to
the-rear of the house and fire it As
soon as the flames were discovered
the officers, eager to get the inmates
of the house, steped out of their shel
ter In every direction. Antn there

who met death. e ,;
An Instant later there was third
shot and County Policeman Robert Os
borne felt dead . ,
The shooting had by this time at
tracted hundreds of people, and nearly
every man who came to the scene car
ried a rifle. The shooting into the
bouse became general, cltlsens and of
ficers firing together. .
Desperado Richardson had been lost
sight of. The bouse burned rapidly,
negroes running to the store and wood
shed and barn. Orders were given to
fire every building Into which negroes
had been driven" , and In a few mo
ments the buildings were burning. A
sewer was utilised by two of the ne
groes as a means of escape , but to ho
avail. The 'crowd had Increased until
about 2000 ' people" almost all armed.
surounded the burning area.' Soon a
negro was sene to emerge.'' A shout
went up and the fleeing negro, who
struck out over an- adjacent lot, wa
pursued. Shot after shot rang out and;
he fell dead. His body was filled with
lead. Another negro made a run for
life, and managed to get Into a neigh
boring yard when surrounded by the
crowd and shot to pieces. " '
The fir tbat was started burned the
entire block, being mostly negro houses.
