Willi strife and insuiicction in the governor's office there is. a
promise of some iuom sensational charges. Wherciwill they end it all,
The shift less street loafers and other worthless, but dangerous,
churaciers aie doomed in Tulsa. The eople are demanding a clean
town nud by the Eternal Gods, tliey will have it. ' "
Why not a good, strong organization (Of women in this city?
No city litis a finer lot of women to draw from than Tulsu and un
organization of thin kind would do more good foi-the community than
till the other elfot-K Wheic women lead, men aie Suve'to-follow'.
The editor is still alie and actively engaged in the fight Dor pub
lic decency, and we arc in the fight to stay the limit. We are meeting
all comers with a clear conscience, with determination and confidence.
Our only hope of reward is lhat we will help to create a better, a purer
atmosphere for all tin decent people of Tulsa.
Klow that I'litiolmau Dillard has been removed. tbe question nut
orally arises. "Who will lie the next patrolman appointed to fill' his
place?" - , ,
It is necessary to have two good men tojisure proper protection
for tlic iieople ol Kast Kml and we feci iioiifiileinttluit the, police com
missioner will do his best lo gel a man favorable to the better class
of ople of this community.
Whoever, he is, he should have all the oournge and other good
qualities of a gentleman, a full mmiso of duty, with a high regard fpr
his oath of ,f ' i c nd deference for his sii)erior officqrs. ,
He should Iks Tearless in the performance of his duty and blind
to favkiritci-ui Any police officer should be u'mnterlal help to tlic
couimunit.v ud to the df'partiueiit. Tin is all thti'deceut peoile ask
of Mr. l)illi:n I (. successor.
The ci--u o the lionehead .Southern democrata who opposed
the appointment of .Mr. Patterson to the office of registrar of tin; l
S. Treasury has lost the party more colored voters than any, act qf the
administration to date It takes a fur wing, bwdiniudc,d, self-sacrificing
colored man to be a democrat under existing oircuiiisn.n,ces,
we admit, but it is necessary that we be diversified in our politics. We
cannot all be republicans, we cannot all he democrats,, ,Yey cannot all
be socialists. We should not, all of us, belong to any one political
party, and, wisely, we do not.
Uut, we are, all of us, of the same race, and in politics we should
be just us liberal with a black man who opposes our party affiliation
in politics as we are with our biolher who differs with us in religious
belief and sentiment. Tho colored man is usually wade thescupe
goat of any parl predominated over bj wldte men find as long as
present conditions obtain it will always be so. Let us, thenore,
strive to change conditions.
The Star Is still in the light for decency and as Ion a a there is
anything publicv wrong and indeient to light we will be found on
the tiring line. We sore notice now that this light is on to the
finish. No little pussilamiiuuis cuss who indulges 111 any kind ol
it reel corner tlmots against u can intimidate u. We have been
threatened with violent b one would be "bad man," who dared .its
to mention hi name again. ThK is.mic. however, catries im iivjich'
of which iu is tlN subject and a. long as he or stuy ope else, iiike.s
punuc iccoiii, goon or nan, 11 is name to appear 111 tlie'iuHa star.
We do not make the news, but when it is made the tur will cei
tainly print ii, if ihe editor fceN disponed to do so. It is our pur
poe to gie facts to the public without fear or favor, and to use
all the power we can lo iuiprow public morals of this cil,. Au.v
until or woman who comes within range of our guns will be warned
of danger. If the warning is not heeded he or she will bo filed
upon without mercy.
The linfn or woman who is afraid to stand up and fight for the
right is not worthy of citizenship.
No good citieii, and no honest bad one, wdll deny that 0111
stand is right. We are glad 10 note one fact, which gives us en
conrageiaeiit in our battle for public decency. That is, the nun
islers us a whole are with us and have openly' joined the ranks with
us. We know the Colored population of Tulsa has a bad reputation
with the outside world, but we dcsiie to infoinr tlic world at largi
that the rcsH'ctable people of Tulsa aie in the majority and with
the help of the ministers and oilier worthv citirens the Star will
ultimately establish this fact.
