It, seems that the vast majority of
the Colored people,, trying in Tulsa,'
resided in. a segregated district, which
made itvery- easjr for the white
Christians'-to corall them and shoot
.them down; like so .many rats, and
destroy their property. The outcome
of the race riot in that dty simply
indicates that segregation, after all,
is a cancerous thing or experiment,
on the part of the Colored, people, J
ior it enables the whites to single

them on the sliehtest occasion, -whh-

85, "at Carrier Mills
Prior to the death of our late right
worshipful grand -secretary, Brother
James C Adams, Mr. Samuels had
planned his itinery to include all' the
lodges in the jurisdiction, particu
larly the middle and southern parts
of the state. But, as usual, man
proposes and God disposes; there
fore it is not probable that the- pro
gram will be entirely carried out as
originally planned; however, having
the best interests of the craft at
heart, every effort will be put forth
to see as jmany lodges as possible.
. About two months ago an appli
cation -was received front several un
affiliated, brethren former members
of St. James Logger No. 85, request
Ingthat their warrant be restored.
This request was granted Monday
night, June 20th, by the grand master

talking on their part nor shouting or
waving their hands at someone whom

followed close behind the first band,
their color bearer held Old Glory or
the American flag aloft and all along
the line of march, fully ten thousand
people, removed their hats as it passed
by floating gently in the June breeze.
At no time in the past have the
colored Masons in this city made the
fine showing like unto St John's Day,
Not over seven or eight hundred
of the- five thousand ' Masons stuck
their heads Into St. Mary's Church,
for it was far too small for any use
for .an occasion of that kind. The
services should have been held at the
Eighth Regiment Armory and. if it
would have been impossible to se
cure h, then the services should have
been held at Masonic, Hall, for it will
hold as many and possibly more peo
ple than St Mary's Church, for thou
sands of the Masons were forced to
stand around in the boiling hot sun
on the outside of the church or wan
der on back to their homes long be
fore the services had been concluded
in the church. . x
