about to be inaugurated the

got up a petition for separate

ious to have a slate made out of

Business men and those who
are not business men but who
have money to depoBit for safe
keeping should deposit it with
our banks in Muskogee, and es
pecially those fhat pationizo our
colored newspapers. When ac
commodations are wanted in any
way thoy generally go to our
banks for that assistance, and it
seems to us poor business sense
to send money to Ft. Smith and
elsewhere to be deposited and
then call upon our homo institu
tions when assistance is needed,
We know of some instances when
this had to be dono, and that is
tho roasen why we call every
body's attention to this impor
tant fact. Wo believe that every
man, woman and child who lives
in Musgogee should do every
thing in their power to help
build up our town, and it can't
be dono by placing or doing
business with banks in other
towns when we have got just as
