vol. X. REPORTANENT RIOT Made Public By Committee of Atlanta Citizens. FACTS ARE SET FORTH Ten Negroes and Two White Men Were Killed, While sixty Negroes and Ten Whites Were Wound ed—Name of City Crucified. Ti ta iu-mmitiep annniHted In Atlan ta some weeks ago to disburse funds for the relief of the victims of the September riot has finished its labors and submitted a report. The findings of the committee contain some very sensational features, and words are *< not minced in speaking of the lawless mob that “crucified Atlanta in the eyes of the world.” The committee found that twelve persons were killed and seventy wounded during the riot. Os the wounded, ten were white and sixty negroes. Among the victims there was not a single vagrant, but all were working and supporting fam ilies. To the murders, states the com mittee. robberies were added, and “men and women were treated with unspeakable brutality.” The declara tion is made that several hundred linurderers and would-be luurdsrw-s are now at large in the city. The con tributions amounted to $4,423. The re port states in detail how this sum was disbursed, and continues: “Tn connection with this statement of disbursements tie think it our duty ♦o call attention to some of the facts Z ? whir)-, have- come to light during our investigations. “Leaving out. the Brownsville cases, where a number of persons charged with complicity in the killing of Po liceman Heard, are out on their own bonds, the following facts are true beyond question: ”1. Among the victims of the mob there was not a single vagrant. (“2. They were earning wages in useful work up to the time of the riot. i«~, “ s - They were supporting them- selves «iiic( viicu iamiue» ui ucik.. « ent relatives '/ ’4. Most of the dead left small chil- dren and widows, mothers or sisters, witli practically no means and very small earning capacity. “5. The wounded lost front one to eight weeks’ time at 50 cents to $1 a day each. "G. kbout seventy persons were k wounded, and among those there was t an immense amount of suffering. In some cases it was prolonged and ex cruciating pain. “7. Many- of the wounded are dis figured, and several are permanently disabled. “8. Most of them were in humble circumstances, but they were honest, industrious and law-abiding citizens and useful members of society. “9. These stataments are true of both white and colored. “10. Os the wounded ton are white and sixty are colored. Os the dead two are white and ten are colored, two female and ten male. This in cludes three killed at Brownsville. “11. Wild rumors of a larger num ber killed have no foundation that we can discover. As the city war paying the funeral expenses of vic tims, and relief was given their fam ilies, they had ever motive to make known their loss. “12. Two persons reported as vic tims of the riot had no connection * with it ”13. As twelve persons were killed •a _ and seventy were murderously as- saultwd and as by all accounts a num ber took part in each assault, it is clear that several hundred murderers .or would-be murderers are at large in this community. • “j-t. Aimougn less tnan three months have passed since the riot, events have already demonstrated that the slaughter of the innocent does not deter the criminal class from com mitting more crime. Rape and robbe ry have been committed in the city and suburbs during that time. “In conclusion, wc cail attention to the fact that up to this time Atlanta has been a law-abiding city and crim inals of all kinds, with a single ex ception, had been punished by legal methods. "Considering this record of a law abiding community, it is amazing that the things we have recited could have happened in Atlanta, and that the small minority which constitutes the tough element was allowed to cruel ty this community in the eyes of the world, and shock the moral sense at bur own people.” GOBBLERS WERE WARY. President’s First Day's Hunt for Tur keys Was Fruitless. President Roosevelt's hunt Friday across the Hardware river, a half r’oen miles from the Roosevelt Hunt ing Lodge in Virginia, was fruitless of results, as far as wild turkey was concerned, the only trophies beinj? a few birds which were bagged on the return trip.

At an important meeting of the di rectors of the Georgia Immigration Association, held Friday in the offices of the chamber of commerce at At lanta, it was decided that Georgia has every necessary authority, under the recent decision of Commissioner Strauss of the department of com merce and labor to proceed with the work of bringing a desirable class of Immigrants to Georgia. WIB COnClUoioss, steps were taken to co-operate with Commissioner of Agriculture T. G. Hudson, who is an ex-officio commis sioner of immigration for Georgia, in pushing the work. The recent decision of Commission er Srtauss of the department of com merce and labor in the South Caro lina case was read and its legal bear ing was considered. It was resolved by the directors to tender to the governor and commis sioner of agriculture the services of the association in co-operating with the state authorities in every legal way possible in furthering the work migrants so rGerogia taoi nnaua. . migrants for Georgia. 'By appointment, following this meeting, the directors of the associa tion called on Governor Terrell and Commissioner Hudson at the state capitol, and both of these expressed thnnis*-' 1' °° ’n hearty favor of (losir able immigration. They gladly accept ed the offer of co-operation from the association and Mr. Hudson stated to the directors that he, as commission er of immigration, would himself lake full charge and direction of the movement, would devote his every ef fort and energy to securing for the state the very best class of immi grants to be had, and said his ef forts would be directed especially' to England, Scotland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden artS Germany. Mr. Hudson said he would expect the association to co-operate with him in locating the immigrants when they arrived in such manner as would be for the best interests of the state and the immigrants themselves. James A. Strachan of Atlanta, who r ‘. o V', nnder f an llnnll . gration movement well organized, and it is hoped he wf be able within the next sixty days to bring over a large number of Scottish farmers. The immigrants which Mr. Strachan secures will be brought to Savannah, and all immigrants which the stare may hereafter bring over will be brought through that port. Mr. Hudson, who attended the meet ing from Rome, and who has already secured a number of immigrants for that city, will be made a deputy com missioner and sent to Norway and Sweden to push the work there. In addition a man will be chosen within the next few days to go to Gei many on a similar ei rand, and he likewise will be armed with a commis sion from Commissioner Hudson. A state immigration convention will be held some time in the near fu ture, arrangements for which will be made at a called meeting of the direc tors. SUDDEN DEATH FOR CASSATT.

WEI >N HS'I'Y ■>. j 9() ' MEXICANS SLAIN By a Band of Bloodthirsty Yaqui Indians in Sonora. BURN RAILROAD STATION All the Victims Were Workmen on Branch of the Southern Pacific. Details of Outrage Are Very Meagre. Tire details of the Yaqui Indian out rage at Lenchb station, on the caua nea, Yaqui river and Pacific railroad, a branch of the Southern Pacific, in Sonora, Mexico, on Saturday night, in which eight Mexicans were killed and all houses burned, have been re ceived in El Paso, Texas. No Amer icans were killed, although it is cer tain but for the timely arrival of a work train with a large crew of la borers, Foreman Thompson and his wife would have been killed. Reports from rhe same, vicinity tell of murders and outrages perpetrated by the Yaquis on Thursday and Fri day nights. The victims were all Mexicans, and'were taken by surprise on their lonely ranches. Details of the outrages are extremely meagre, but show that the situation is serious For several weeks past, restless ness has been oh- ' rvert among the In dians, but an outbreak was hardly anticipated. No rnusal preparation had been made for a Yaqui outbreak and most of those killed were shot down before any effort at defense could be made. The band of outlaw Indians is said to number about 100. Rumors of their depredations were rife on Saturday When many ranchers fled to towns for safety and reported a number of mur ders in the district southeast of Guay auras. It was not believed, however, that the Yaquis would dare to attack a railroad station. Lencho is one of the smallest station on the Cananea, Ya qui river and Pacific road. About 25 men under Foreman Thompson are employed there, engaged in well bor ing. No sentries had been posted and a volley of rifle shots into the tc>. houses. Immediately after the houses were set on fire and by the light of the flames the Yaquis shot at the frightened Mexicans who were trying to escape. The reports received say that in addition to the eight men killed at the station a number of Mex icans were wounded. Cblone! H. B.

This would compel the crooks, grafteis. xhaters and competition crush ers of the business world who have schemed in darkness and shunned the light to come out into open view, and publicity alone would be a perfect cure for many great evils.
