"All men are born equal and endowed with certain inaliennbl-
rights among which are life liberty pnd the pursuit of happiness.'
We believe in the principles of true Democracy as promulgat-
ed by the patriot Thomas Jefferson and without fear or favor we
will be found at all times fighting for an honest impartial appli-
cation of these principles to all men regardless of raee or color.

his generalship the Democratic ticket will go over the top.
CONVENTION HALL DEBATE
(Continued from lge Five
ANOTHER REPUBLICAN OUTRAGE
THE CITY ADMINISTRATION has wilfully and deliberately flung
an unwarranted insult in the face of the Colored people of this city by' their
outrageous treatment of a prominent Colored woman who was thrown in
jail last week and denied bond because of an auto accident in which she
figured as one of the principals. Tl(c full story is told in an article on the
front pace of tlus issue over the signature of Lawyer E. I. Sadler.
Hundreds of such accidents have happened in Tulsa but this is the first
time a colored woman has been involved and it is also the first time any
woman has been placed in jail because of such accident.
Mayor Evans was appealed to in vain after fruitless attempts had been
made by representative citizens to induce heads of the police department
to release the woman on bond. The Mayor flatly refused to consider the
It is reported that hundreds of Colored women have registered and in-
tend to vote the Republican ticket November 2d. This may or may not be
true but one thing is certain: The Colored women of Tulsa will not regard
lightly this gross insult to theRace and particularly their sex by the bunch
of Republicans they have i'dt 'd elect to office. They will surely remember
that the only injustice the JUce has received from the city administrations
have come when Republicans were in control. The former Republican ad-
ministration started it with the segregation ordinance and followed this with
many other needless discrninations.
It seems to be a fixed policy of Tulsa Republicans to embarrass and
harass the Race at every opportunity.
In the face of these facts considered alongside of the very fair treat-
ment we have always received at the hands of the Democrats in this city
and county we camiot believe that any colored woman will so far forget
her self-respect and her duty to the Race as to endorse with her ballot this
new outrage by our Republican "friends."
No matter how you have registered ladies; there is only one right way
to vote and that is to vote against tlie party whose representatives have wil-
fully misused you. We know there are men among us who are too narrow-
minded and blindly partisan to resent any insult or injustice aimed at the
Race if it comes from Republicans but it is our belief and our ardent desire
that our women will prove themselves worthy the rights given by the 19th
amendment that they will not be the mindless cringing cowards and political
slaves that most of our men have been for more than a quarter of a century.
REPUBLICANS WAKING UP
EVEN THE TULSA WORLD the recognized leading Rcpublicau news-
paper in Oklahoma has expressed disappointment in the vacillating position
of Senator Harding on the League issue and gives him the following good
"If Senator Harding has no advisers he should acquire some. If
be has advisers he should instantly change them or utterly disregard
ihem and strike out for himself."
We would openly admit that Harding has no mind of his own and that
the minds he is following the leaders of the Republican party are utterly
unsubstantial and dangerous to the success of the Republican ticket. If this
be true and no well informed man or woman can doubt it the election of
Senator Harding would be a dangerous thing for the American people.
On the other hand. Gov. Cox has taken a firm stand on the League
issue and every other issue involved and is both proving that he is the tool
of no man that he has a mind anct will of If is own and convinced of the
righteousness o the great cause he is championing he fights on like a true
soldier confident of his success. This is the kind of man the American people
love that's why Teddy Roosevelt lived and died the idol of the American
people and that's why James M. Cox will be elected the next president of
the United States.

WE CAN'T FORGET
THE COLORED PEOPLE OK TULSA will not soon forget the raw
deals handed to them by local Republicans. An honest and impartial com-
parison of the two parties here in this county and city with respect to their
attitude to the Race will convince any fair-minded man or woman that our
best friends have been found to be Democrats. A special instance is offered
in the case of the two nominees for Sheriff. It will be remembered that
Wm. McCullougfJ the Republican nominee while serving as Sheriff of Tulsa
County tried to pjevent a Colored Justico of the Peace from trying a white
man for assaulting a defenseless Colored woman on a downtown street car
on the ground thj "No white man should be tried before a Colored Justice"
and took the wa'rraut from his one Colored deputy with the warning that lie
would never allow a Colored deputy to serve a warrant cm a white man
This Colored deputy was none other than O. W. Gurley who. be it said to
his credit resigned his position as deputy sheriff under McCullough because
of this incident We leave it to the voters among us to decidevhether the
Democratic or the Republican administration as a whole have shown more
consideration to the Race Speak out with your ballot against wrongs that
every real man or woman must resent Surely we can't forget
MANHOOD SAVED THE DAY
THE RECENT ATTEMPT to Ijnch a Colored man in Okmulgee for
an alleged assault on a white woman and subsequent events which almost
precipitated a race riot followed by a complete exoneration of the accused
is another concrete example of the errors shame and evil consequences of
mob rule Here is a case il a law-abiding citizen with a good reputation
being arrested oil suspicion put in jail and narrowly escaping lynching by
the timely action of the officers and a general race war averted only by
the determined action of courageous Race men all on account of misleading
circumstantial evidence surrounding the case. Had the mob carried out
its fiendish intention an innocent victim would have paid the illegal penalty
and a war between the races which inevitably would have followed would
doubtless have cost the lives of many others.
But fortunately for Okmulgee manhood played its part and saved the
day that might have buried the history of the town in odium and stained the
state with the shame of a bloody race war.
REPUBLICAN LEADERS are trying to center the interest of Colored
voters on national issues in order to diminish local Democratic strength.
Don't be deceived. Our local affairs in politics arc of far more importance
to us than national affairs. Let's make sure t ' land our county Democratic
ticket. It is composed of our best friends.
