II I.SA. OKI.A.. June 1 Now tiglfting has broken otjt on North
| lireenwood Avenue. the principal negro business district. according to
j t fireman J ?! returned from tlie scene, who says the tire trucks were
? tired upon by four negroes. State troops have also been tired upon,
he said.
Race riots today resulted in the death of cighty-tive or more per
sons. Including twenty-live whites, and the wounding of moro than
J 500, according to estimates by the police, and in the destruction of
ten blocks of homes in the negro quarter. Despite the. placing of the
I fit y under martial law-today, desultory tiring continued during the
I afternoon, but the city this evening was comparatively quiet. Four
j companies of the National Guard, under Adjutant-General Barrett,
are on duty.
The reported death list grew all day. At noon the Chief of Police
; notified Governor Robertson at Oklahoma City that the total was
'seventy-live. In one statement Major Charles W. Daly, of the Police
Department, put the figure at saying he believed many negroes
had been burned to death in their homes. Of the white men known
I to have, been killed, five have been identified, as follows:
| Homer Cline, 17. Tulsa; Cleo Shumate. 24. Tulsa; Emmett Buck
lev. 35. Leroy, N V.; Carl D. I.otseisch, Randall, Kan. Man previously
identified as F. M. Raker. Haviland. Kan., believed to be Norman
iGillard. Tulsa.
The trouble is declared to have started last night from the arrest
I of a negro charged with attacking an orphan white girl, and subse
quent attempts of negroes to rescue the arrested man. Comparative
'quiet prevailed in the later hours of the night, but at daybreak a
group of negro houses were set afire and the city firemen prevented
from fighting the (lames. As a result of the. tires 5.000 negroes are
j homeless. Armed white men formed a circle about the negro section.

WASHINGTON. June I. Need of
legislation to compel the labelling of
shoddy clothes as such was pressed
today before a. Senate committee,
which began hearings on the Capper*
French "truth-in-fabrics" bill. The
measure is designed to accomplish in
textiles what has been done for foods
and drugs by the laws prohibiting
adulteration and misbranding in
those lines.
I'lrc department officials expressed
the belief early this afternoon the
white residence districts would ho
saved from the (lumen that are still
