Plan to Establish Negro Hotel
There the Cause. v
Muskogee, I. T. Aueust 1.
Tho citizona of Holdenvillo aro
again exoitod over the plan tJ es
tablish a negro hotel ' there. As
mentioned in those dispatches, as
soon as tho hotel was furnished
it was raided and the furniture
thrown into tho streets. A meet
ing of the Commercial club was
held, ht whioh it wasdeoided that
the hotel was a good thing for tho
town, i hat same night the ho
tel was dynamited and nraeticallv
wreokod, Tho feeling runs so
high at Holdenvillo that it is not
likely that tho negroes will cot a
foot hold there.
The officers here have been ad-
v'sod that a party of negroes got
on at ono depot and started to
another to take J ho lirst train out.
and woro followed by a gang of
tirmod men, who made threats
and at ono time proposed not to
'illow them to remain until the
train came in. Not only is there
trouble between the negroes and
whites, but t'o peoplo and pross
of Holdenvillo havo made charg
es against the offioera that thev
were dereliot in answering thoir
oall for assistance to quell tho dis
turbance. The Death Penalty.
A little thing sometimes results
in death. Thus a mere scratch,
insignificant cuts or puny boils
have pr id the death penalty. It is
wiso to have Bucklen's Arnica
Salve ever nandy. It's the best
salve on earth and will prevent fa
tality, when burns, sores, ulcers
and piles threaten. Only 25c, at
a'l drug stores.
