UhKAClK SWOIIN NKT I'AIO Pally , Sunday OL. XV. NO. n i i or? 1 1 O'l.ltX 35.21)2 yjj WHITES ADVANCING INTO LITTLE AFRICA;' NEGRO , DEATH LIST IS ABOUT 15 There was an unconfirmed report at 6 o'clock that Jirce more white men had been killed in the latest clash with the blacks, but it could not be verified. 1 With the coming of dawn this morning, following a night of race rioting and death, hundreds of armed white men in motor cars formed a circle of steel about "Little Africa," and a continuous raltlle of rifle and re volver fire could be heard. a Sixty or seventy automobiles filled with armed men I 'were in the line drawn about the black belt and there) were many reports to the effect that they planned to, i range through the negro settlement and "clean it out." I At 5:30 the death list was estimated as high as fif- 1 teen. Though no whiles were known to be killed save two unidentified men listed in The World, reports to I police headquarters from members of the white bands I who had been at "the front" between the line of armed ! whites and "Little Africa" said they had counted the I bodies of more than a dozen streets. While the bands of armed white men in motor cars were surrounding the negro district six airplanes were circling over the section. Scattered along the Frisco tracks and in streets immediately south were between 500 and 1,000 more armed white men. Talk of driving into "Little Africa" could be heard on all sides. At 5:45 the white forces were pushing into "Little Africa" from the south, bands of white riflemen being reported atElgin and Archer. They were reported to be shooting iritoMiouies "and at all negroes in sight. There was no report of the extent of casualties. Thtf negroes were not returning the fire very spiritedly, ilj was reported, but negro snipers were shooting from' housetops and windows. Shortly after 2 o'clock this morning, the row of frame buildings on the east side of Boston avenue north of ttd Frisco tracks was fired, but because there was no wind, the flames burned themselves out and did not spread to the Cin cinnati avenue block which sheltered several hundred negroes. At 3 o'clock the fire had gained sufficient headway to de stroy all the buildings except, the residence on the north end of the block. When this building was burned, six negroes who had been firing from the house at the whites were driven from cover and five of the six who ran from the house were killed. White men who took up their station at Arctr and Boston before 3 o'clock, succeeded in pushing their line almost to Cincinnati avenue in the face of fire from the negroes. The negroes, however, made no dashes from their places of hiding and 'except for the firing of a few shots at intervals, did not attempt to dtslodgu whites in the negn section of the city. Members of the crowd of 500 whites around the Frisco depot about 5 o'clock this morning engaged in a spirited bat tic with several negroes perched on housetops. However, the aim of the blacks was bad and no whites were injured, but three negroes were killed within a short space of time. One of the blacks was perched on a two-story brick build ing on Archer. He raised up to fire but one of the whites with an army rifle beat him to it and the black toppled, ap parently dead. The other two blacks were hiding on Archer and were dropped by the white.sharpshooters. Three other black bodies were lying near the depot at day light this morning. Two bodies had been removed. T.i'c Brady, proprietor of the Brady hotel, who was a mem t'fr f white men on guard duty along North Main street all Mgrt, said he counted the bodies of fiVe negroes. 1 i'p negro was dragged behind an automobile, with a rope ft " it his neck, through the business district. l; P"rts that three Frisco switchmen and a fireman, mem ''f t "f a switching crew, had been shot to death by negroes i"' i m they refused to haul the blacks out of town, could ' !

BULLETIN : There are two dead negroes al the Frisco depot. After six hours of race rioting. oxtcndliiK over (he entire city, two white men nre known to lie dead and about a score are known to be injured. There are no known neKro fatalities, lhourh reports are that several were killed. One injured neKro is at the police station and is expected momentarily to die. Thousands of shots were fired duriiiK the rioting, crowds swarmed up anil down the streels brandishing weapons and the greatest excitement prevailed. Roth of the white men known to have been killed were shot through the head. The city, patroled by 4T automobiles filled with armed men, while r00 armed men with their center on the Frisco railway station within a stone's 1,000 negroes, form the nucleus of the gathering white forces. There was a furious outburst of firing in the vicinity of the Frisco tracks and Cincinnati about 2:150 this morning, but whether there were any casuultics could not bo ascer tained. Some negro shacks on the. at Boston were fired by white was spectacular and it was Africa's" business district was sponded to the alarm were at tinguished the blu.e Firing which for two hours was general over tho city and centered in the north part of the business district follow ing the first outbreak at the courthouse about J 0 : 1 5 o'clock last night declined at 1 o'clock after a crowd of !I0 negroes were driven from Second street and Cincinnati avenue. In response to a call from Muskogee, indicating several hundred negroes were on their way to tho city to assist Tulsa negroes should the fighting continue, a machine gun squad loaded on a truck, went cast of the city with orders to stop at ail hazards these armed men. For three hours city officials, under direction of J. F. Adkison, police commissioner, and Charles Daley, inspector of police, with the assistance of part of the home guard com pany, formed armed white men into companies and these companies were inarched to advantageous positions. Hun dreds of t ars were volunteered for line by the armed patrol of tin; city, and these were speedily detailed to prevent armed negroes from taking action except in the negro dis trict of the city. About 12:.'J0 a. m., when an armed party of whites, scouring the vinicity of the Frisco station after an attack by blacks, at the corner of second and Cincinnati, mistook a lone while man for a negro, and fired a round of at least 25 shots at the white pedestrian. Death was instantaneous and he was hit so many times his body was mangled almost past identification. The last car containing whito 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 mail was badly beaten by negroes when he attempted to i wo companies ol regular troops irom l't. hill were ordered out by Governor Itobertson, and home guard com panies from surrounding towns ordered to mobilize and take immediate transportation to I Thousands of persons, several hundred women, and able weapon in the city taken from every hardware and sporting goods store, swarmed on Second street from Boulder to Boston avenue watching the gathering volunteer army or offering their services to the peace officers. Intermittantly throughout the two hours following mid night, shots were fired into the air by the whito forces, but except for a few stray shots firod by whites at the Frisco depot and returned by the negroes, the city remained in quiet. The aimed cars containing negroes were driven from the streets before 1 o'clock, and the patrols continued scour ing the city, arresting negroes and placing them In the city 'jail. Twelve were captured o clock. No attempt was macs however to disperse the negro mob north of the 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.
