Whlltl. ATLANTA, U.., Sept. IS. A rare war Df alarming proportions began here last night. Through th night It rsged with varying vigor, and when morning dawned 't found a number of negro and one white man dead, a acore of both races wounded and th downtown atreets In possession of eight companies o' t Fifth Oeorgla infantry with bat "I; "Ight artillery In reserve. Throi. V A',y Utile of Importance occurred. claimed, with the aid of the V . 't, to have the situation under control. This condition came an the result . numerous and repeated assaults or ai tempted assaults upon white women by negroes. , Th last Of an even doaen of such assaults within the limits of Fulton county within the last nine weeks came yesterday, when four attempta at assiult were reported. The usual Saturday night crowds wero largely increased by men and boya who thronged the downtown atreets. There waa no leader and no overt act until lata In the evening. About 10 o'clock a negro men ahored a whlta woman from the aide walk on Whitehall street, in the center of town. Almost simultaneously a negro woman made an Intuiting remark to a white man on an adjoining street' and he administered what he considered due pun Inhment. From this start the excited crowd, which had become a mob, began Ha work of de struction. Five thousand men and boya thronged the' downtown streets looking for r.egroes. News that a riot had started brought thousands more from their homes in the suburbs and residence districts, until fully 10,000 men 'thronged the down town section. They made attacks on the Incoming - street cars. Each car waa scanned for negroes. The trolleys were pulled from the wire and In the aeml darknesa of the unlighted car negroes wsra beaten, cut and stamped upon in an un reasoning mad frensy. If a negro ventured resistance or remonstrated it meant prac tically aura death. One car, half filled with negro, approached from an outside run. The mob dashed for the car. Resistance waa made by the negroes, who had not beenejprlad.' the. Rouble. .'Three negroes lay dead -an -tan.-floor of the csrwhen It Waa permitted to move on, and two more were, beaten Into jpneonaciousness. , Ftremea near Streets. When the crowd seemed to be getting be yond control, at about 10 o'clock. Mayor Woodward mounted a car platform on Paachtree and Marietta atreeta and urged tfce crowd to disperse; declaring that tho assaults of the white woman would be adequately and promptly punished by due process of law. Mayor Woodward waa given 'a respectful hearing, but when ne finished, the work of destruction was re sumed. He made another appeal a few minutes later, but without reault. Then' he turned In a general fire alarm, calling the entire fire department to the scene. To Chief Joyner he gave the laconic order:. "Clear the atreeta." The result was to stop the mob In Its work In that Imme diate section and to drive itito other atreeta. The situation becamo ao threaten ing at 11 o'clock that Governor Terrell was appealed to to order out the state troops. Although no request had come from the sheriff. Governor Terrell gave the order mobilising the eight local infantry com panies' at once. Previously a police riot all had been sounded summoning all police reserves to headquarters. With the de cision to call out the troops the big Are bell sounded once more, this time tho call for every member of the militia to report forthwith at his armory. It waa almost I o'clock this morning before tffo first squad appeareJ on the atreeta, and at 5 o'clock six companies were under arms. The attacks on negroes had the effect of clearing the atreeta of blacka. Street hacka were abandoned at curblngs, drivers on bagfsg wagons vanlahed and their places were taken by white meu. This fear of trouble affected several public convenience today. The postofflc officials bsd much difficulty in delivering special letters, lea deliveries have been scarce to private homes, in some restaurants service has been restricted by the absence of regular waiters. Throughout the. day hundreds of negroes have been fleeing the city by train and wagon and on foot they hurried away, fearing the possibilities jpf troubln in the Immediate future. .. . Waasea Pleat Back. In the fighting last night negro women were the moat warlike, urging resistance to the mob and themselves fighting like Amaaoo. la the residence district great anxiety waa felt last night. The police force was can tared down town, practically leaving the residence districts without pro tection. It waa a night of terror to hun dreds. The lawless character of . the mob. last night was fully demonstrated during the latter part of the evening. When negroes had vanished from the streets the aimless mob, from pure wantonness, broke windows and damaged property. The crowd, after pulling the negro porters from the Pullmans of a Western as Atlantic raUruAd train standing ready to start, pro cioled to smash the windows In the day coaches and mall nnd baggage cars. The nietnW'rs then crossed to ths Kimball house and continued the window emashing amusement, causing a loss of several hun dred dolls rs. Numerous windows In stores on Peachtree street today allow the tact that tU mob paesed that way. A eloss watch wss maintained . o guard against Incendlarlani, but fortunately thia precau tion was unnecessary and fire waa not added to the horrors of last night.

"There are things more terrible and more ssvage than a drumhead court-martial," the letter soys, "namely, the lynch law, armed revolt and civil war." The letter condemns the constitutional democrats for sreklfTg to persuade the peo ple that an understanding between the government and the people Is Impossible for preventing by extravagant demands any other Issue than actual revolution. "Ex-en If the, right of revolution la rec ognised I must 'shrink from the fratricidal ff "fe which would follow.

ODE6SA, Sept. 23. It now transpires that the Black Hundred, acting in collusion with the anarchists, had elsborated plans for a violent attack on the Jew on the occa sion of the Jewish New Tear and 'that the carrying out of these plans was only averted by the extraordinary alertness and energy shown by the authorities. General Oregorleff. prefect of Odessa, in the ab sence of Governor General Kaulhars, has telegraphed information concerning the plot to Premier Etolypin. Although the danger la believed to be past the preventive meas ure inaugurated by the officials have not been relaxed. The Jewa continue appre hensive of trouble. In view of this ohack to their pis rr thq experienced organisers of the anti-Jewiah demonstrations ' have opened the columns of their newspapers to another campaign. They have revived the old story of ritual assassinations, accusing the director of a private Infirmary of the murder of a Christian child by the trans fusion of Its blood Into the velna of a sick Jewess. An official Investigation of this charge disclosed the fact that the child, which was a Jew. had been accidentally poisoned. Despite thla, however, the cam paign is progressing. The beating of Jewa In the atreeta of the city continues. INVESTIGATES DIVINING ROD Geraaaa Rnaaeror Desires to I.eura Principles t'nderlylagr the Time-Worn Idea. BERLIN, Sept. 22.

Mano,' a scrip of a woman's skirt and an oilcloth table covering bearing a rude sketch of the landing of Columbus, are the only Im mediate clues to the perpetrstor of , a re volting murder committed early today. . The dismembered body of a man, appar ently an Italian, wrapped In the burlap bag, was accidentally found In a hole twenty four feet deep forming a part of an ex cavation at o4 West Thirty-sixth street, where an addition to a brewery is to stand. The discovery was made by the day watch man, and later a eyeuematlc search by the police resulted In finding the parts of a man's legs .from the knees down and the arms and hands.

' The car waa unloaded of a shipment of horses yesterday. The head and the Uiigha of the man are missing.

Th engagement of Senator BeveHdge to speak In the Nebraska campaign would have been fixed for Omaha If It were possi ble to make the arrangements without con flicting with th Ak-Sar-Ben festivities. The state chairman was notified that he could have a speech by Beverldg for Oc tober , and his first decision wss to schedule him. for Omaha, but after a con ference with the committee at Omaha It was decided unwise to attempt a counter attraction to the big Ak-Sar-Ben street fair, and Lincoln snapped up the oppor tunity to take him.

As was expected by those who witnessed the Lancaster county convention, the legls. lative nominees met yesterday afternoon and In answer to the Question asked by the Evening News, agreed to vote for Norrls Brown for United States senator, and kept ailent on the great issues now pending between the corporations and the people. Whether the fake reform paper will accept the pledge to vote for Norrls Brown In lieu of all other pledges remains to bo seen. . Whether the legislative candidate will vote , for the enactment of a direct primary law, a freight rate law, an antl pasa law, will be determined probably after the legislature meets. It is true the county convention adopted a platform covering nil these point, but the convention also en dorsed Norrls Brown, and there la no more reason to suppose the legislative candi dates will bolt the latter Instructions than they will the platform, but the News de manded them to again publicly express themselves upon the senatorial matter.' One candidate for the legislative ticket said: "The News had no right to ques tion us at all, as It la not a republican paper. I answered the senatorial ques tion, but you can bet I wlll not do any thing farther toward answering question from the News. - I will go on the stump and tell the people what I have to aay and what I intend to do If elected.- but I'm Pot permitting the News to tell m what to do."
