Pile does not fiqM booze, nor was ever known to gam- ble. ZiHis morals were never questioned. He stands for a clean county and strict law enforce ment. He is qualified. r To while men and women, it is unthinkable that the day might corns, when negroes are permitted by law and custom to intermingle with the whites on a basis of social equality. That is an indisputable fact. In Ok lahoma, we have laws providing for pnarate schools, separate waiting rooms, separate pa"-enger coaches, separate churches, separate hotels, separate everything that has to do with the public u-cmbly or public movement of the people. All indications point to the proba bility that if selected at Governor of Oklahoma, one Jnck Walton would seek for the enactment of laws and customs that would allow negroes to intermingle with white people on the basis of social equality. W e have only to point to the record. Mr. Walton is nt present mayor of Oklahoma City. On Thursday. Oc tober 20. 1K21 (just last fall.) Mr. Walton presented n motion to the city commissioners of Oklahoma City pro viding that negroes be allowed all the rights and privileges and courtesies of whites nt the city library in Okla homa City. The motion died for want of a second. The record of the mo tion will be found in Minute Book No. II., page ri-18 of the Commissioners of; Oklahoma City. The minutes read. "Moved by Mr. Walton that the Li brary Board nnd employees be in structed to permit the negroes of Oklahoma City to have the samo courtesies as they do any race that avails itself of the privileges at tho city Library. Motion failed to carry for the want of a second". Mr. W. E. Utterback. of this city, is in posses sion of the original of n certified copy of this notation on the minutes, certi fied to at Oklahoma City by C. F. Semmelhnck, city Clerk of Oklahoma City where it may be seen upon ap plication. That is only a tnrler One of the state organizers of the Oklahoma Reconstruction League is a negro by the name of Bounight. He is said to reside in -the northeastern part of Hryan county in the Bur-o community. Hi- negro neighbors re fer to liiin a- ii "gii.diiated nigger" and t'n others of hi- line hold him in a -oil of revel euro.
