Are you for or against prohi
bition, the battle is coming and
we'll bet a nickle (our pile) that
the Lincoln Club calls a meeting
especially if there is any lubrica
ting oil in sight.
Wagoner Era promises to give
us hades as soon as they can
hear from the Guide man to-wit:
Perkins. We have waited patient
ly for them to hear. We are sat
isfied that Perkins is not taking
care of other fellow's fights and
the cusses must come to a show
down or we shall begin opera
tion at once, and we are loaded
for bear. Play your cards broth
er, but we insist on the cards be
ing played with faces up. We
think we hold the "big una" and
we are holding one to catch a
Jack (ass) such as the one who
played the .knave not long since.
This is no bluff- -wehave waited
patiently tor you to open up un
less for you to do so at once our
16 inch gun will belch.

not cost him a penny. And if
true, this is a new way to work

who just struck ground and then
start a fight on what they call old
times, fthow by this kind of doing

The swell-headed leaders of
the Lincoln Club are preparing
for another call which we sup
p093 means more lubricating oil.
There are only a few however
who get any of the grease.
Some cusse3 are rushing
around town trying to throw
"cold water" on the proposition
made to finish the First Baptist
church. These fellows are not
worth their room in hell, and -are
not such persDns as should be
encouraged by our citizens. We
Uon'f. claim memborship in any
churoYi yeb, there i not a church
in Muskogee that we have not
assisted in the way of contribu
tion and we think the fellpw who
claims to be over loaded with re
ligion (no matter where he be-
Let every one, no m a 1 1 o r

First Baptist chu.'ch. We gave;
to the R. R. Co., it is our duly as
well as our right to help build
thib cnurch. The few sore heads
who parade their own ability to
build some other church should
not influence anyone to desist in
giving to this worthy cause. It
is the duty of every Negro in
Muskogee to help finish the work
already begun. We don't belong
to any of them but we are willing
to give to thia as we have given
to other 'and of course we think
the o'her fellow who does belong
tosome church can do as w ell.
