L'pton Archibald Hopkins Joyce
was stripped of tho glamor of Jew
elM, millions and romance and hold
up .ih n tordld adventures! by her
multimillionaire husband, James
Stanley Joyce, In an answor filed
today to "PesBy's" petition for
$10,000 a month temporary alimony.
Startling exposure or 'TcgRy's" al
leged past wero mndo by Joyce In
(ho most voluminous answer ever
prepared tn a dlv.rco case.
The most startling charge made
by Joyce w.jh the revelation of a
hitherto sealed chapter In "PegRy's"
life the taking of his own life by
an enamoured army officer In New
York after an affaire de coutr with
"Peggy. '
Hit imoroo Iotlrr a "HaUe."
Joyce charged In Ills hill that this
army officer, driven Into debt by
his deMro to earn "Peggy's" favor
1 satisfying her Inordinate crav
ing for Jewels, committed suicide.
Of almost equal Interest In the
charge that "PegRy's" "alibi letter."
produced by her to prove her al
leged divorce from her first hus
band, Kverott Archibald, took place
before her marriage to Phllbrlek
Hopkins, is a false Instrument. This
letter was produced by "Peggy" dur
ing an Interview granted lost week
to a representative of the Chicago
Hvenlng American.
Joyce charges that this letter
which "Peggy" asserted proved she

Moth of the white men known to have been killed were
shot through the head.
Tht! city, patrolrd by ,f automobilca filled with armed
men, while fi00 armed mon with their renter n the Frisco
railway station within a stone'a throw of an armed mob of
1,000 negroes, form the nucleus of the gathering white
forces.
There was a furious outburst of firing In the vicinity of
the I-risen tracks and Cincinnati about U :110 this morning,
but whether there were any casualties could not be ascertained.

spondud to the alarm were at first kept away, but later
tinguished the bliiy.e.
Firing which for two hours was general over the city
and centered in the north part
ing the first outbreak at the courthouse about 10:15 o clock
lafit night declined at 1 o'clock after a crowtl of .'10 negroes
were driven from Second street and Cincinnati avenue.
In response to a rail from Muskogee, Indicating several
hundred negroes were, on their way to the city to assist Tulsa
negroes should the fighting continue, a machine gun squad
loadetl on a truck, went east of the city with orders to stop at
all hazards these armed men.
For three hours city officials, under direction of J. F.
Adkison, police commissioner, and Charles Daley, inspector
of police, with tho assistance of part of the home guard com
pany, formed armed white men into companies and 'these
companies were marched to advantageous positions. Hun
dreds of cars were volunteered for use by the armed patrol
of the city, and these were speedily detailed to prevent
armed negroes from taking action except in the negro dis
trict of the city.
About 1 2:110 a. m., when an armed party of whiles,
scouring the vinicity of the Frisco station after an attack by
blacks, at the corner of second and Cincinnati, mistook a
lone white man for a negro, and fired a round of at least
2fi shots at the white pedestrian. Death was instantaneous
and he was hit so many times his hotly was mangled almost
past identification.
The last car containing white men through the negro
district, which made the trip shortly after midnight, re-
ported that at least 1,000 armed negroes were gathered north
of the Frisco depot. One white man was badly beaten by
negroes when he attempted to pass through the district.
Two companies of regular troops from Ft. Sill were
ordered out by Governor Robertson, and home guard com
panies from surrounding towns ordered to mobilize and take
immediate transportation to Tulsa.
Thousands of persons, both the inquisitive including
several hundred women, and men, armed with every avail-

offering their services to the peace officers.
Intermittantly, throughout the two hours following mid
night, shots were fired into thr air by the white forces, but
except for a few stray shots fired by whites at the FriBco
depot and returned by the negroes, the city remafned in
ouiet. The armed cars containing negroes were driven from
the streets before 1 o'clock,

ia . Twelve were captured

! negro mob north of tho Frisco depot.
Armed with weapons ranging from shotguns to .22 cali
ber target rifles, men filtered into the police station singly
or in auto loads. Ammunition was scarce and the entire
supply of virtually every store in town carrying such goods
was confiscated before midnight.
