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 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

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.

From City; List
Of Dead Mounts
With hundreds of armed wh'tc men pirhinR into the
' "black belt," f-etting fire to -.cores of houses and hootinR
down negro after necro in houses where snipers are observed,
reports reaching p"licc headquarters at G:15 indicate that
the nenro death list will mount far hifiher thn ay estimates.
1 Two thousand or more negroes are reported walking out
of town to the north, where no urmed whites were barring
the way.
J Every negro seen on the "-treets this morning was promptly
put under guard. The c'ty jail was quickly filled and the
I police then began takig thorn t" Convention hall, where more
than three hundred are now confined. BlJcks picked up in
various part- of the city offered no opposition, but most of
them teemed glad to get the protection of the law.
: Hundreds of automobiles early this morning were dashing
lhr"iif;li the streets, practically every one with one or more
rifles stick'ng out the sides.
Six badly wounded negroes were among those brought to
the police station.

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.
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
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
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.
