The Trip to Chicago
June 12.
The Stand Pat Club composed
of Forakers supporters, left
Muskogee on Friday June 12th,
at 11 o'clock a. m. There were
on board: Hon. 0. W. F. Saw
nor, of Chandler; Charles Phil
lips, B.' W. Bradley, P. J. Jol
ley. J. T. Tremble, Prof. P. B.
J, Hudson, and W. H. Twine,
of Muskogoe. It was a jolly
crowd and each of them enjoyed
the trip. The peckerwoods in
Ark. were sti lick with wonder
as they gazed on a private car
composed of what they termed
'them niggers"' from Oklaho
ma. One was heard to remark
'dat car am too good for nig
gers, (ley ought to be jim crowed.
At Monett, Mo., the club took
supper in the car which was
furnished by the Harvey House.
The waiter did not know the
price but guessed 75 cents. He
went for the bill and when they
discovered the Club was com
p sed of colored gentlemen, the
cuss reported it was $1.00 each
which was promptly paid as
there is nothing small about
the members of the Club but
their feet and they are growing.
Mr. A.Jackson, the porter on
.the Pullman, is a first class gen
tleman and gave the Club first
i i .
class service. All the boys are
behaving nicely, up to date.
Jim crow was empty from Fay
etteville to Monett.
By Mr. Buz-Fuz.
Mr. K. W. Hardy, of the Af
ro American Business college
of Dallas, Texas, made a lee
tureat the First Baptist Church
to quite an appreciative audi
ence last week.
We are glad to mention the
marriage of Mr. Sydney C. Da
vis to Miss llattie Phillips. The
groom is one of the most efli
dent carriers on the force at the
local post office. We bespeak
for them success and happiness
through the matrimonial tour.
Mrs. B. A. Hume and child
ren were called to Waco, Texas,
last week to attend the funeral
of her sister, Miss Inez Easter,
It was indeed sad and the rela
tives have our sympathy in
their hour of bereavement.
The Normal is in a flourishing
condition with 125 in attend
ance. It is remarkable the
small number of men are attend
ing in proportion to the number
of women. There are about 100
women in attendance. The
work is reported to be in a flour-
be more schools this coming ses
sion than ever before in the
state of Oklahoma and good
teachers will be in demand.
The latest designed soda
fountain was installed in the
Bakery and Confectionery busi
ness, establised in the Kimins
McCollough building on South
2nd Street. These people are
putting up first class service
second to none in the city and
are making everything makable
in a bakery or candy store.
These young men with their ac
complished wives know the
business. This is what makes
success in any line of business.
Behind every great man there is
a noble wowan.
The nineteenth of June cole
oration at The Douglas Mcin
tosh park was quite a success.
There was much fun and merri
ment had by those in attend
ance. Dr. and Mrs. G. P. Todd have
left the city indefinitely.
Watermelons have made their
appearance here by several ship
meutsand many people have
shown their faith in the red
meat by sampling them.
The Cimeter special is expect
ed to arrive this evening bring
ing the crowd who attended the
Chicago Convention. We are
sorry to relate that the report
has?reached us that Mr. James
Tremble had a stroke of apo
plexy. His condition was con
sidered serious. We hope he
has recovered.
Miss Maggie Wynn will leave
for Corpus Christ i, Texas, next
week to visit her father.
Prof. Nicholson, who had a
position in the Jndian agent's
office, was compelled to get a
transfer to San Antonio, Texas,
where his health had some
chance of improving. For this
reason he had to give up his
night school work which he had
in a flourishing condition. The
good work will continue, how
ever, as Prof. K, W. J lardy will
carry on a business college as
soon as he returns from Dallas,
, , i.
We are sorry that the race is
bothered with a set of knockers
in Muskogee who are not worth
their room in h 1. Some of
these poor hell hounds tried their
hardest to in some way embar
rass Prof. Nicholson ere he left
the city. We are proud to state
that Prof. Nicholson left the
city highly respected by all the
law abiding people white and
black. He made many long
and lasting friends while here.
The People's Bank and Trust
Company are still doing busi
ness at the same old stand and
from the last printed report of
their financial condition it was
shown that their assets were
$70,000. This of course created
confidence among the race en
terprises. The teaching profession has
again been robbed of one of its
brightest professors in the per
son of Mr. John II. Wright,
who has accepted a position as
sub-carrier at the local post of
fice. He is making a commend
able record. This makes only
ten regulars and twosubstifut.es.
