A largo number of Negroes registered nml voted at tho Democratic
primaries held in this slate recently. Many of them had local Interests and
registered so as to bo able to vote at the primaries. Oklahoma City, Tulsa,
Muskogee and Hartlesvlllo cast the lurgest Negro vote for tlio Democrats

The Death of Mrs. Wilson
We regret to announce tho dcatli of Mrs. Woodrow Wilson, wife of the
President of the I'nlled States, the llrst lady of thu land, mistress of the
White House. After a happy Installation Into tho social duties of thu White
Hnuan nnd tho marriage of two daughters from the parlors of the Presiden

expression for our peoples the American Negro we, the humblest or the
American people, feel the deepest sorrow that "our" president In the midst
of a trying ordeal. In the time of great effort for the good of our country
should have taken from him thu companion of his Hfo tho mother of his
household. The whole nation mourns with him.
Tho meeting of tho National Negro Business Men's League nt Muskogee,
promises to bo a monster meeting. From nil sections of the country re
port come in that preparations aro being made for largo representation of
professional and business men. It Is the duty of every man and woman In
the state to attend this grent meeting of the representative, men and woman
of tho race who will t in Muskogee to discuss measures and devise plans
for the general advancer.li-ut of tlie race, along all lines. To meet them
now Is an opportunity which may not come agnlu sorn.
We must Impress our visitors with the great opportunity we have in
the growing new state, to make homes, where and .while land Is cheap nnd
within their reach We must meet thepo visitors and make their stay
pleasant and have them go hack to their homes with good impressions and
reports of the good people they met in Oklahoma. We must make an effort
to have them sou as much of Oklahoma as possible, during their short
stay. Wo must make the Muskogee meeting a success -n grand succuss a
howling bucccss. It will require so little upon tho part of each of us to do
this If wu do our part.
During to week a murder wns committed at Sapulpa In which-a Negro
woman and two Negro men aro accused of committing tho crime. Tho cir
cumstances surrounding the affair aro such that wo can only regret that
thu criminals are Negroes and will havu to suffer thu punishment fur a
crime which might have been avoided, if thu officers of tho law of Sapulpa
had been careful of their duty. It is to be hoped that this will lie a lesson
nnd that a repetition of this affair will not occur again.
Thu unfortunate man, who lost his life In this affair seisms to havo ma do
a habit of associating with luwd Negro women nnd Negro men of the "round
erf" typo. He bought whiskey for them nnd loved to bo with them. Tho
real trth of his murder may never bo known, but thu fact siudlrato that his
Negro comrades robbed him and In order to accomplish tholr purposo took
I. itching of the Negroes was averted only becauso tho better people or
Sapulpa positively refused to encourage anything less than a trial for tho
reason Hint he kept company with them and thoreby lost the protection of
his own people.
