The Governor's message is mandato? ry. It says:''Go at onoe." The com? mercial wires having closed, theae mea?agaa were transmitted over rail? road wires from here, and arrange? ments were immediately made for spe? cial oars on the Plant System to take the troops. The train will arrive at Bainbridge at 8 a. m. The troops are wanted to protect the Sheriff and the jail against the attack of a mob that ia after John, Williams, <colored) who is charged with assault and attempt to rape upon two white girla. Williams entered their room while they were asleep, and had seized one of the girls whsn he was ft ighteu- j ed away. A large crowd of country Eeople are in town, and swear they will ave Williams if they have to dynamite the jail.

Thomasville, Ga., July 21.?John Williams, eolored, was arrested here to-day for an assault on a white wo nit?n in Decatur County one month agc. He denied that he is guilty of the crime specified, bat admits that he had to leave the eountv because of an assault.

Colored Girls Find That They Cannot Win There. TOO LITTLE MONEY. Over Two-thirds Leave on Pa}' Day. New Ones Come In, But Not Enough To Fill Vacancies. The Old Dominion Shirt Co.. opened a branch of its factory at 727 North 3rd St. Sewing machines were put in place and run by a 7-horse power gas engine. At its main factory in Manchester, Va., it had much trouble with the white girls on account, it is alleged, of the low wages paid In this ease however, it was adver? tised that girls could make from $3 to 16 per week, and it was bu: ? short time before 260 colored girls had regis? tered their names although only from 40 to 60 were needed. The establishment has been running about three weeks or more and the girls became restless as to the amount of compensation. They were given books in which were placed the result of their labor. On Saturday last they got an idea of how much they would be paid,"which was 31**' cents for sewing twelve pair sleeves, one cent per dozen for hem? ming and six cents for making oue dozen shirts, the patterns being cut out before band. As a result of this on Monds/ for two and three weeks' work some of the girls received from 80cts. up to f 1.60, a few received as much aa two dollars. Tuesday morning, out of over forty girls employed, not over ten or twelve reported for work. New ones were sent for and the number on, Wednes? day last increased to about twenty, bat there are many vacant spaces at tbe machines. Those who seem to know by experi? ence leout the idea of being able to make $3 CO per weex, believing that only an expert could accomplish the teak. The hours of work were from 7 o'clock to half past five, one half hour being allowed for lunch. AT BEA-8LDE PARK* A number of Richmond's citizens went down to Virginia Beach on Mon? day week to visit Sea-Side Park. The place only needs to be seen to be ap? preciated. Every natural advantage desired is there?good level ground, ocean front, with a beach as desirable as anyon the Atlantic, railroad nearby, pine groves, plenty of clear water con? venient, workmen putting up bath? houses and other improvements. This offer to the colored people cannot he surpassed,*, acquiring such ^valuable ground at ao little con* Lots are sell? ing for $26 each, $2.60 cash aad IOj, per week, payable at the True Bef arm? ers' Bank.

A Stinging Rebuke. The letter bearing date of June 18th, 189?, and signed "Lieutenant, Casual Detachment," discrediting the patri? otism and loyalty of our men of the 24th and 25th Infantry, which wai pub lished in the Plamrt. may have been written by a civilian who used the title j of'lieutenant" to give weight to his malicious statements; but it is quite i likely that the writer used his true title. A RKCKStT APPOlNTBR. If the latter be true the cither in question was without doubt either one ot the recent appointees to commis? sions in the Regular Army who has not seen enough service to know any* thing of the colored saldier or by one who is too much of a coward to face the Fillipinos in battle himself snd hopes to keep his regiment at home by harping on tha untrustworthiness ol its men. A CLOAK FOR COWARDICE. To the majority of the read era of this letter, most of whom bow well know something of the Negro as a soldier, this writer, sheltered under the protecting title of 'lieutenant," ahows how baae ha ean be. It would have been far better had he dispensed with the title, for his more conscientious brother officers feel it their duty to see that titles are not used in the Army aa a doak for cow? ardice. A WORD ABOUT THR MAJORS. And be would have the four majors of the 24th and 28th Infantry deatined for the Phillipines to use their influ? ence to keep the two regiments in the United States for fear of being shot ? Well, if those four majors are like the majors with whom I have come in con? tact, they will do no such thing, and our "lieutenant" will go to the Philli? pines unless he oan devise some other m*ana to keep back. I know several officers who were hated by their men about as much as any offloera ara aver hated and went through the Cuban campaign without being shot by their men and are so-day with their regi? ments. HO PARTICULAR OBUDOR AOAIRST HIM. I hops the "lieutenant" will not try to influence officers of high rank with the idea that we hold any particular grudge against them. As a rule they are the fairest toward us. Had those holding civil positions been as liberal toward us as have been many of our Army otVicers, many of whom have their haads tied, numbers of our men who endured the hardships of the San? tiago campaign would now be holding aubstantial positions in the Govern? ment service. But, does not the very way this offi? cer goes about making public the dis? covery show cowardice? THAT CHARO*. OP DISLOYALTY. Does it not ahow that he is too mueh of a coward to make officially a charge of disloyalty, attach his name and send it to the proper authorities through the proper military channels as lt is his duty t> do? Is it not his sworn duty to make this report? Does it not place him outside of the pale of respect of his brother offlsers to shirk in this manner so important a military duty, and thus change what would properly be an official report into what is very improperly a base slander? True, this ''lieutenant" did not hear himself the words of unpatriotism and disloyalty, but if the words of his in? formant were grounds enough for his letter, it should have been grounds for oharges. WILL UPHOLD ""HR NATION'S HONOR. Much as we detest this Fillipino wsr we hope always to uphold the honor of American soldiers, to whom mutiny is a stranger, wherever we be, whether ahooting Cuban bandits or suppressing patriotic Fillipinos. I would say to the "lieutenant" in question it would be far better for him to attend strictly to his duties until be has been in the servioe long enough to know something about the character of the men he has been sent to soso mand, and not stop to calculate on his ?fiances for life when ordered on an er? rand of any kind, for if he do his courage will surely fail him ; but if he is really afraid to go to the Philippines resign, resign ! The Regular Army is no place for cowards. Don't try to oljak your cowardice under the Negro's lask of patriotism and loyalty, bat resign anti let lome other brave white man take your place or aome Negro first sergeant will have to lead your company in the fight PaasLY Holliday, 8erg't Troop B. Cavalry. Gibarr, Cuba, July 10. 1899. MR. HUB'S PLAR. A G'.rantic Scheme?An Appeal to the Oslored Folks* Dear Sir :? I would colonize the Negro on indus? trial plans which I think oan be accom plished by subscriptions. We are aware of the fact that while we have from eight to ten millions of Negroes in this country, we could raise from five to eight millions of dollars by asking for voluntary subscriptions of ene dol? lar or more, as each one teds disposed to give : or tbe following plan could be adopted, for instance, we could form four classes: Class A could give $20 00 each; deas B. $10 06; class (J, $5 00; class D. $1.00. and thus we can reach all conditions. I would that the Bishops au'horiz-> each minister under his charge to act as agent, to rollect money from all the in the Parish in wriahhe lives, and I believe by so doing that in one year the Council oan raise very nearly the amount and we can make arrangements with the True Reform ers to deposit in their bank, and th* money to be used bj the council fer colonisation. TO INVRST IR PROFRHTY. Let the appeal come through the churches to our petiole all over the country made by the Afro-American ? 'ouneil. I think that two or three millions of dollars should be invested in pronerty. and colonize it mostly from Mississipni. Georgia, North and South Carolinas, and as many who wiah to migrate from any other part of the country on industrial plana. There will be employment for all trades and professions. Liet us lav out our colony, build in? dustrial schools and colleges. Bj thia plan the Negro would have his own colony and could invite capitalists to to invest and we would do well and prosper* I feel that if our leading men would approve of some sn<*h a plan aad agi? tate it before our people, they would grasp the idea and very readily fall in with our plans. Great things would be accomplished aad the race problem would be solved, Bkvrrlxy Tibbs, 86 Spring St., Worcester, Maa*. VIOLATED THE LAW. Peculiar Conditions is Hew lork State Ths Proprietor Arrested. Pouohkbrpsir. N. Y., July 25?Thos. Jackson, eolored, today had Harry Tied je brought into court. Tiedje keeps one of the large ice-cream places in this cit/. The charge against him is violating the civil rights law. As a re? sult the city is showing signs of race trouble. Jackson is a waiter. He hal a half holiday yeaterday and, with two eolor? ed girls, stopped into Tieaje's restaur? ant, which was well filled with custom? ers. He went tc tha tablfe in the cen? tre of the dining room and Tiedje fol? lowed. Tied ja is quoted as .having said: "You cannot get ice-cream here. I will sell you ice-cream soda at tbe fountain, but no ice-cream at the ta? bles. We do not serva eolored people here." Jackson, who says he has "never be? fore suflfc-x'd indignity in public be? cause of hia color," was offended. The girls with bim cried and he led them out. Then he returned and aaked for au explanation. Tiedje ssid he had observed the rule of excluding colored people from his tables for years. Jackson consulted lawyers, and ear? ly this morning Policeman Charles H. Caae showed Tiedje a warrant for his arrest on a charge of misdemeanor. This bad been issued on the advice of Fred. ? Ackerman and Gains Bolin, the latter a colored lawyer. The law? yers went before Recorder Joseph Morsel auber and swore out the war? rant. Colored people, of whom there are more than 1.0C0 in the city, are agitat? ed about the case. Before the record? er Tiedje waived examination and was held for the grand juty in $500 bail. -Did you pay the collector or did you tell him to call again ?
