A very short man once went with a
tall girl, and at the opera house folks
could not help looking at them. At
an entertainment one night, a woman
sitting right in front of the couple
had a big hat, and she asked the
short fellow if her hat obscured the
the. view of the stage, lie suspected
that it was a slap at his stature and
promptly replied that it did not. al-
though he knew he was lying, lie
had to lean away out in the aisle .ill
hrouph the show to see around the
trig hat, and yet he never complained.
His neck was stiff for a week but he
lias not admitted that he was short.

About 4:30 p. m. yesterday D. L. F.
Banks and another negro were em-
ployed to assist in raising a lot of
counters into the second story of the
Hackett blacksmith and carriage
shop, from the sidewalk on Broadway.
Banks was slightly under the influ-
ence of liquor and he began a loud
harangue against the men in the
second story as to their slowness in
pulling on the ropes, which was en-
tirely uncalled for. Charley Hackett
who was upstairs, took acceptions to
the negro's sass and talked back t
him. Banks dared Hackett to come
down stairs, but Charley came just
the same, when Banks said he was
only joshing and did not want any
Charley Hackett drew a hammer on
Banks when he came down stairs, but
when Banks apologized and said he
was joshing he laid it down, thinking
that Banks was in a peaceable state
of mind, but no sooner had young
Hackett laid down the hamper than
Banks picked up a six-pound hammer
and re.-umed the onslaught,approach-
ing young Hackett, using rough lang-
uage and struck him on the back of
the head, knocking him down. Hack-
ett arose and grabbed a piece of iron
and struck Banks over the head which
laid the negro out flat, and if those
who wete present had not interfered
no doubt Charli Hackett would have
finished the earthly career of the
Banks started home over Piety
Hill. The police being notified of the
trouble, followed Banks and overtook
him near the residence of Uncle John
Dollar. Banks refused to recognize
the authority of the officers to arrest
him and resisted. After using pur
suasion for a few mbiutes Marshal
White was compelled to use force and
after belting Banks over the head
with a six-shooter, loaded him into a
wagon like a butcher would a dead
At the police court Banks gave
bond for his appearance at 10 o'clock
Considerable feeling was aroused
throughout the city over this occur-
ance, and there was some talk of
lynching Banks last night, but a few
citizens, including the editor of this
paper, pursuaded the hostile citizens
not to attempt such a proceeding as
the negro had not committed a crime
sufficient to justify such a proceeding
as Charley Hackett was able to be
about and would soon recover. How-
ever, if the hammer blow on young
Hackett's head had lit on the fore
part, instead of the back, it would
no doubt have killed him. If the
blow had killed Charley Hackett. no
power on earth would have saved the
life of Banks last night.
D. L. F. Banks isfcin aggre&sive ne
gro: he seems to want to resent any
little reflection that may be cast 'up-
on him more savagely than any white
man of tbi* community. The police
court record and the records of the
district and probate courts are full of
his career as a disturber. He not
only shows a disposition to fight any
white man who may, in the least bit
touch his sensitiveness, but he has
been raising hell among the negros
his own race of people. He has beaten
his wife and is accused of living in
adultery with an alleged niece.
Now. the question arises, what is
the best thing for the city authorities
to do in a case of this kind in the in
terest of the peace and quiet of the
city, not to speak of the expense of
taking care of such a character.
It is a silent, yet a well understood
fact, that Enid is not a negro town,
nor never will be. Therefore the
WAVE believes that the police judge
should issue an order of banishment
in the Banks case. Give Deacon
Banks thirty or sixty days to settle
up his affairs in this city then to take
the road for pastures new. This
seems to us to be the best way out of
the continual string of trouble the
Deacon seems to want to prolong.
In the past the Wave has been in-
clined to be friendly to Banks, as he
always showed intelegence beyond
the average man of his race, but he
seems to have become a sensitive and
very abusive negro, and the time to
call a halt, in his carreer, has come
I face to face with the people of Enid.
| Banks should go, not to his death ,
'but out of this town.
