The president was escorted to the
Hotel Colorado. No word of his com-

went directly to his apartment to
clean up and rest. He had his first
bath in a tub since leaving his com-
fortable train at New Castle over two

in honor of his coming.
Sunday night the president enter-
tained at dinner his companions on
his three weeks hunt in the Rocky
mountains. After the dinner he bade
them an affectionate farewell and
promised that all would live forever
In his fondest memory. At the dinner

"Mr. Jorda n Is now hunting for a
scapegoat, and I do not propose that
he aall use me for that purposee"
So said Oommlsaloner of Agricul-
ture of Georgia 0. B. Stevens, to a
representative of the Atlanta Coasti-
tution, after reading In an afternoon
paper the letter of Hon. Harvie Jor-
dan. president of the Southern Cot-
ton Assolation, in which Mr. Jordan
charges that "Me. Stevens is under-
taking to apologise for or stand by
the fertilizer companies in the reck-
less waste of tags this season."
President Jordan's charge is based
on an interview with Commissioner
Stevens, which was gathered by a
representative of the Constitution in
the course of a casual conversation
with the commissioner, and In which
Colonel Stevens states that the pres-
ence of unused fertilizer tags in cars
of guano was doubtless due to care.
lessness of employes, as the fertil-
Izer companies, even itf they desired
to create the Impression of heavy
sales, would hardly scatter the tags
in that way, but would rather de-
sBroy them or hide them away.
President Jordan quotes part of this
Interview and seriously charges Com-
missiloner Stevens with "undertaking
to apologize or stand by the fertil-
Izer companies in the reckless waste
o tags this season, and to admit that
the same condition of affairs has been
going on every year."
Contivulug, Mr. Jordan declares that
i-Rstead of co-operating with the farm-
ers and the Southern Cotton Associa.
tion in trying to expose the fertilizer
companies in their wanton waste of
tags. he appears from his Interview
"to haue prejudged the case and ren-
dered his verdict in favor of the fer.
tilzer companies."
When soon President Jordan's let.

made the following brief but pointed
"I have no desire to get into a con-
troversy wth Hlion. Harvie Jordan. I
have, to the best of my ability, sup-
ported the Southern Cotton Associa-
tion movement, and have in every way
endeavored to uphold Mr. Jordan's
hands, having gone of my own mo-
t:on to New Orleans to assist him In
his election to the presidency.
"The trouble with Mr. Jordan t

Colored Strike Breakers Add Dan-
gerous Phaze to Situation. .


Question of Merits or Demerits of
Strike Somewhat Overshadowed
By a Threatened Kace War.

A Chicago special says: The public
temper on the negro question was
extremely bad end promised to grow
without any relation to the merits or
demerits of the strike. A considers
ble portion of the members of the
Employers' Teaming Association re-
gret that the negro strike breakers
were ever brought in. A great por-
tion of those who have been used are
Said to have proven incapable. Dur-
ing the last two weeks more than
one thousand negroes have been
brought into the city to aid the Em-
ployers' Teaming Associa:ion. Some
of these have brought their families
with them sufficient to make the ne-
gro importations Into the city amount
to about 1.500.
I The number who have already quit
the teaming association through fright
over the situation isa placed at 500, a
I number of whom are drifting about
the streets. It was said that the em-
pioyers had given notice to their ageu-
clt2s tirat no further importitiou of
negroes t:ed be made; that only
white men are needed to take the
place of the strilkers Aside front the

Thursday than any time pr'vioiis byl
the daring with which respectable
men and women howled at thu Inm-
ported colored men. Ye;!s of "Go
back home"," eight t a white ms.n with
a white man." were heard frequently.
Violence in the strike showed no
signs of cessation. The very firat
outbreak resulted in a fatality. Chas.
Riebling, a white man, received a
fractured skull, and is ,xp),eted to
die. He was standing in a crowd
which started to jeer a nou-tinion col-
