By order, Laura Hill, Chair. Exec. Board WAGONER PEOPLE SHOW GRATITUDE Business League Organizer Vis its Busy Oklahoma Town. RECEIVES A WARM WELCOME Representative of Large National Body Witnesses Gross Discrimination Against Afro-Americans on Southern Train—Impressed With Spirit of Co operation Among Our People. By RALPH W. TYLER. Wagoner, Okla. —This is the first town of any size in Oklahoma at which one arrives after leaving Kansas City, it being about eight hours’ ride from the latter city. I had a startling, but agreeable surprise awaiting me when my train rolled into the station. But a short time before reaching the town I had protested strongly because a young couple, members of my race, were asked to leave the parlor car, out of Kansas City, on reaching the Okla homa state line. My protest, however, was of no avail, for the additional rea son that the couple themselves com plied docilely with the command. I had just fallen into a half doze when the train reached Wagoner, from which I was awakened by loud cheer ing, and “There he is at that window” and the like. I was startled, and vi sions of a vigilance committee bent on taking me from the train and inflicting punishment on me for protesting against the eviction of the colored con pie flashed before me. Instead of a vigilance committee I soon discovered it was a large concourse of colored citizens of Wagoner bearing flags. | flowers and wearing badges on which were the words, “Welcome to Okla ! homa,” and Herbert A. Clark, a for mer Ohioan, headed the welcoming band. For this I shall always remem | her and with genuine pleasure Wag oner. This town has a population of per- • Imps 10,000, nearly one-third of which j is colored. It boasts of paved streets, j excellent business blocks and resl- j ilences brilliantly illuminated at night [ Wagoner is not u bit slow. In fact it j is a very progressive little city. The [ Negro Business league has organized , for effective work the colored popula tion. and all appear to be co-operating with a spirit worthy of emulation. The president of the local league. Dr. It. S. Smith, nu Alcorn and Meharry alum nus, is a tireless worker in his efforts to keep Wagoner people busy along the path of progress, and he has the confi dence of all, whites as well as our own , people, who own some fine town and | farm property and are doing splen didly. There are three physicians and two , lawyers here with a good practice. ! The business houses, consisting of gro- , ceries, general stores, cafes, etc., show I prosperity. Very few cities In the j country among us can boast of a news paper plant equal to the American, wbicl) Herbert A. Clark manages and edits. It is located in a very substan tial two story brick building, the prop erty of life owner, L. A. Pell, and is equipped with two or three presses, a linotype machine and all modern print shop necessities. Mr. Pell, reputed to be the black Croesus of the town, a former Mls sissippian, owns large interests here as well as in Muskogee, where he puts in most of his time. Wagoner’s com mercial growth is somewhat interfered with by its close proximity to Musko gee. being but fourteen miles from the latter city. The slogan of the local Business league, “Patronize race busi ness men.” however, is giving the col ored business establishments excellent trade and. us a natural consequence, giving pniployroent to young colored n:en and women. This is more strict ly a farming community, and the land, fertile ns it is. yields bountifully to the colored farmer. The colored peo ple of Wagoner are taking as much in terest in the forthcoming meeting of the National Negro Business league in Muskogee as if It were to be held in their own town. They will go over to Muskogee en masse and help accord the delegates a roj'nl reception when the league meets in August. It is estimated Hint the colored peo ple here and in the vicinity own in the neighborhood of $230,000 of realty and have invested something like $23,000 In business. For a new town, for Wagoner is perhaps not more than fif teen years old. this is a very fine show ing. 10 is what one might call a hus tling community of co-operating Ne groes. 1 was very much Impressed with the determination of these people and their loyalty to race which lends them to follow colored leadership. In practically every home here, as is true all through Oklahoma, one finds the picture of Dr. Booker T. Washington. Anniversary of a Texas Normal Bchool.
