LOVE ISSUES JIM
GIVES MUSKOGEEANS RELIEF
FROM OVERBEARING NEGROS
A TRIAL TRIP CONVINCING
Takes Jaunt on Line Complained of
and Is Soon Satisfied That Peti-
tioners Were Entitled to Re-
lief Asked For
Muskogee, Okla.—It was not the
arguments of the citizens but a person-
al experience that brought relief to
the people who live In Northwest Mus-
kogee in the way of an order from the
corporation commission for better
street car service on the Fon Du Lac
line. And the order would probably
have been made by Chairman Jack
Love, had there been no testimony in-
troduced at all. It happened this way:
The white people petitioned the cor-
poration commission for an order forc-
ing the Muskogee Electric Traction
company to enforce the Jim Crow law
on the Fon Du Lac line by furnishing
separate compartments, with a station-
ary petition, or else separate cars for
negroes and whites, along with better
switch accommodations, etc., the Jim
Crow provision being the main point
at issue. Thirty or forty prominent
citizens appeared before Chairman
Love at a hearing here and told him
that there was great danger of a race
riot on this car line because the neg-
roes showed a stubborn inclination
to disregard the Jim Crow law and
refused to take their places in one end
of the car when told to do so by the
street car conductor, and often not
only refused to do so but sometimes
drew guns or kniveB to enforce their
threats and the car conductors were
After the hearing Col. Love was In-
vited to the home of N. A. Gibson, the
attorney for the street car company
where he shared the hospitality of the
attorney. Then he went across the
street and visited W. C. Jackson, bank
er "and member of the state legisla-
ture. After his visit Jackson took Love
to the Fon Du Lac line a block distant
and put him aboard to come dowp
town. It so happened that on that par
ticular car there was a big crowd of
negroes, so large in fact that the car
was entirely filled with the exception
of one seat, and Col. Love happened to
be the only white person on the car.
He was getting a concrete illustration
of—what the complainants had been
telling him, and he was convinced.
On his arrival in Oklahoma City
and forthwith write on official order
that in the future the street car com-
pany is to run two cars on this line,
one as a trailer, and that one car shall
be exclusively for negroes and one for
whites. By this order the corpora-
tion commission has definitely com-
mitted itself as to what it considers
enforcement of the Jim Crow law on

Following A Disagreement Over
Husband Tells Story of Mrs.
Guthrie’s Long Illness and Is

Beaufort, N. C.—Mr. Luther Guthrie
writes as follows: “My wife suffered
with horrible headaches for ten years,
and I spent Three Hundred Dollars
for doctor bills for her, but nothin*
did her any good.
I had read about Cardui for years
back, but never tried It, until last Oc- |
tober, when I decided to get it for n
Now she has taken two bottles, and
It has done her two thousand dollars
worth of good.
She is entirely well, and has not
had another attack of headache since
she commenced to take Cardui.
Just as long as the medicine Is
made, I shall have Cardui in my home.
I can’t praise it half enough.”
Cardui has cured Blck women, after
other medicines have failed. It Is
made of ingredients that act specifical-
ly on the womanly constitution. It Is
not a cure all. It Is a medicine for
women, and only for women.
For more than 50 years, It has been
In widely extended use, by women 6f
all ages, and has given perfect satis-
faction, as a remedy for rebuilding
womanly health and strength.
Try it yourself. It will help you.

Oklahoma City.—Oklahoma City union
of the brotherhood of car men. Mis-
souri, Kansas and Texas railway, went
out on a strike in obedience to a gen-
eral understanding that had been
reached by the different lodges com-
posing the order.
The officers report that the strike
is a general walkout over the Katy
system and they are expecting sym-
pathetic strikes among the workers
in orhet departments. They say that
more than a thousand men have walk-
ed out, comprising almost the entire
force of car repairers and inspectors
of the system. In Oklahoma City the
strike order was obeyed by eleven out
of the thirteen members of the local
The grievance reported by the un-
ion arose over the request for a con-
ference which the general officers sub-
mitted to the Missouri, Kansas and
Texas officials on March 3, last. The
company's officials refused to accede
to the request for a conference, ex-
cept to treat with them as two or-
ganizations, the United Car Workers
of the M. K. and T. Railway company,
and the United Car Workers of the
