TULSM'S COLORED BUSINESS DIRECTORY
State i ews Letter
Street Rullxvay SHU Sick Hut
An official report of the national
condition of tlie electric railxvny
industry for the yeur ending .lanu
ury 1, l!)2l, indicates a gradual and
.steady npprtineh to a stable basis.
Regulatory bodies seem to believe
that rehabilitation or lines will be
a slow process and that the pres
ent advanced rales must be main
ained for sonic lime even if falling
costs, (anticinaled but not readied
as yet) should conic. A large ma
jority of the companies in the last
lour j ears Have .strained their
financial resources to the limit, or
created actual deficits, bv merely
nieetins current expenses and mak
ing absolutely unavoidable eincr
genc improvements.. Many badly
needed improvements have been
deferred by virtually every compa
ny on account of lack of funds.
The report just completed shows
that rl,S ciiles in Hie United Slates
representing more than !)() per cent
of the riding population in cities,
are paying lares ranging from lie
with a lc transfer cbage to a flat
rale of 10c.
The largest groups are: (lilies
paying a 10c fare, 112; lie fare, (i;
He fare, (i; 7c fare, 17-1 ; and tic fare
The immediate result of the wide
spread inclination to adjust rates
upward to the requirements of
good service is found in the low
number of electric railway receiv
erships for 11120. 'lucre were only
10 representing a total capital stock
of $25,313, (5. as compared with
18 receiverships, representing a
capital stock of 22 1, 251),:!.') I in
11)11). During the year 1,10 miles of
truck were dismantled and IIOH
miles of track abandoned. No
track construction was reported.
In practically every community
there appears to be a desire on the
part of the car riders to co-operate
in an effort to make the lines self
sustaining and to encourage a flow
of new money into the industry.
Company Claims High Operating
The Yale Telephone Company on
January 1, was granted an increase
in rates by the Corporation Com
mission. The operating costs of
this telephone company were
shown to be such that it could not
make a reasonable interest on its
investment. The high cost of ope
ration was mainly due to the high
classed operatives. The Yale Tele
phone Company has a record of
being one of the best operated tele
phone companies in Oklahoma.
. California Commissioner talks .
In a recent address before the
League of California Municipalities
12. O. Kdgerton, President of the
California Itailroad Commission,
answer the criticism made by
some people in regard to rate in
creases to snoot existing conditions
made by Public Service Commiss
ions, lie declared that the State's
industrial progress depends upon
an immense increase in the facili
ties of the public utility companies
which expressed in money means
the investment of many hundred
million dollars in the next few
years, and that Ibeie is no power
to force investment in those securi
ties, except through the adoption of
a sound policy which insures the
investor that his property will be
dealt with fairly and intelligent.
He said "You who are the offi
cial representatives of municipali
ties, have a very serious responsi
bility. It is important that you do
not by mis-statement, either pur
posely or ignorantly, shake the
confidence of the public in so im
portant a matter as the retaliation
of public utilities. If you do so,
you are doing your constituents a
serious injury. You must recog
nize that those investments are
made in the common good, that
they devedop communities, and
that they are protected by the Con
stitution of the United States and
the laws of the state, designed to
protect such investment against
Uniform Accounting System
The National Association of Hail
way and Utility Commissions have
adopted the theory and general
plan of the uniform system of ac
counts for gas corporations. The
members of this association are
composed of the members of the
state corporation commissions,
public utility commissions and
railroad commissions. Michigan is
the first state which has ordered
its gas utilities to follow this plan.
The State Principals Association,
of which W. II. Fori, principal of
the Okmulgee school, is chairman,
hui moved their battle line to the
legislative halls of the great state
of Oklahoma and now the men,
who have been chosen to make
just and equitable laws for the
government of all the people are
going to have an opportunity to
line up on the side of JUSTICE
TO THE SEPARATE SCHOOLS
which schools have suffered for
all these years because of the lack
of sufficient funds with which to
purchase the equipment so necessa
ry for the advancement rightly
Saturday, January 15, the legisla
tive committee that has been work

sembled in Douglass School. "()kla.
City, and after listening to a survey
of many poisible plans by their
allorney gave orders to draw up a
bill in keeping with the plan
suggested a copy of which will
appear in a .subsequent issue ami
have same introduced immediately.
Ere this issue reaches the different
parls of the stale Hie first real
concerted effort of the Colored
teachers to have the laws changed
in such a way that relief max come
to the Separate schools will have
been launched and the tiir-iln
sounded to all those interested to
rally to the assistance of those who
are really attempting to have this
load lifted from he black man's
shoulders and he be given a man's
chance to gel what the Stale oxvuj

Principals Fori, Okmulgee; (iris
son, Muskogee; Hughes, Tulsa; Day
Sapiilpa; Bryant, l.uther; Young

Arcadia compose the JetMative
committee charged xvi.li Ihe task
of presenting the teachers' viexv of
what i-, needed and to the assis
tance of these leaders every
teacher, who hopes lo be profited
by the prospective changes, ought
to come or remove himself from
the ranks that only those who are
not only xvilling lo share in the
good accomplished, or attempted,
but who will assist in bearing the
expense inrident lo the putting over
of this great program will remain.
The Tulsa Star knows of the
heavy obligations taken by this
committee and the contracts en
tered into calling for large outlay
of money no part of which outlay
has as yet been sent in other than
TWENTY FIVE Dollars from Ihe
County Association of Okmulgee
which they informed the Secretary
is their first contibuion. While
Okmulgee couny was the first to
show a direct in pushing this battle
there is every reason to believe that
all the teachers in the Slate will
vie with each other to render the
aid necessary lo carry out the
plans and bring success, it will
be to the eternal shame of the Slate
Teachers' Association if there
should be a turning aside to discuss
matters calculated to defeat Ihe
It is the hope that the Inter
Rnchil Alliance will throxv the
weight of the personality of each
member of ils committee into this
battle for fair play and that both
sides, renrcseiitiiiif be lies! llmnulii
or the races and the purity of
thought of those who favor a sitinu-e
f ileal may not lag behind in this
mailer, but will line up and push
this bill to final paggago.
We have talked with each mem
ber of the committee and find each
encouraged and willing to sacrifice
comfort and money to win a fight
so much needed to be won.
Secretary (Irahain is preparing
toners oi explanation to He sent to
all teachers as far sis he man have
their addresses while Chairman
Fort is keeping himself informed
on all sides and is calling the
committee at any time needed
without a thought as to Ihe expense
"del results now" said this leader,
"and let the expense be put up lo
Ihe loyal and appreciative teachers
of Ihe great Stale of Oklahoma"
while the committee said "AMI2N."
The TULSA STAH will keep Ihe
public informed along all linos and
