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 at Elgin and Archer. They were reported to be shooting into houses and at all negroes in sight.! There was no report of the extent of casualties. The negroes were not returning the fire very spiritedly, itj 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 the 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 necrocs. 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.

White men who took up their station at Archer una there any lnjund at the negro and Boston before 3 o'clock, succeeded in pushing their line ' !,us'"ul- 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 dislodgo whites in the negre section of the city.

Negroes Finally Driven Into "Little Africa" Where 1,000 Armed Bladen Are Reported at Bay With More Than 500 Armed Whites Facing Them Opposite Frisco Tracks; Move to Lynch Bootblack Starts Trouble. BULLETIN: There arc two dead negroes nt the Frisco depot. After six hours of race riotinir, extending over the entire city, two white men are, known to he tlcad and about a score are known to he injured. There are no known nej-'ro fatalities, though reports ire that several were killed. One injured nojrro is at the police station and is expected momentarily to die. Thousands of shots were fired dunni the riotinir, crowds swarmed up and down the streets hrandiHliint,' weapons and the greatest excitement prevailed. Hoth of the whitu men known to have been killed were sliot through the head. The city, patroled hy !! automobiles filled with armed men, while fiOO armed men with their center on the Frisco railway station within a stone's 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 Frisco tracks and Cincinnati about li:I50 this morning, but whether there were any casualties could not be ascer taiticd. Some negro shacks on the north side of the Frisco tracks at ltoston were fired hy white men at 2 o clock. The blaze was spectacular and it was at first reported that "Little Africa's" business district was burning:. Firemen who re sponded to the alarm were at first kept away, but later ex tinguished the blaze. Firing which for two hours was general over the city and centered in the north part of the business district follow ing the first outbreak at the courthouse about 10:15 o'clock! last night declined at 1 o'clock after a crowd of .'10 negroes .were driven from Second street and Cincinnati avenue. in response lo a call 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 loatled 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 ,1. F. Adkison, police commissioner, and Charles Daley, inspector of police, with the assistance of part of the home guard com pany, formed armed while men into companies and these compan: were marched to advantageous positions. Hun dreds of cars were volunteered for use hy 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 12:150 a. rn., when an armed party of whites, scouring the vinicity of the Frisco station after an attack hy blacks, at the corner of second and Cincinnati, mistook a lone white 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 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 Covernor Kobcrtson. 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 able weapon in the city taken from every hardware and sporting goods .store, .swarmed on Second street from Moulder to Most on avenue watching the gathering volunteer army or offering their services to tfie peace officers. Intermittantly throughout the two hours following mid night, shots were fired into the air by the white forces, but except for a few stray shots fired by whites at the Frisco depot and returned by the negroes, the city remained in quiet. The armed cars containing negroes were driven from the streets before I o'clock, and the patrols continued scour ing the city, arresting negroes and placing them In the city jail. Twelve were captured by the auto patrols before 1 o'clock. No attempt was made however to disperse the negro mob north of the Frisco tiepot. Armed with weapons ranging from shotguns lo .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. 'I linicwiridx I,liie Slivi lx.
