statements by several prominent ne
groes and Police Commissioner J. M.
Tulsa tonight was under control
of city and county authorities. At "
p. in. Adjutant General Charles F.
Harrett. in command since Wednes
day morning under a proclamation of
martial law, ordered state troops to
entrain for their home stations.
The :25 national guardsmen resi
dent, in Tulsa were maintained on
active duty however, to prevent a re
currence of the rioting, which cost
tnirty lives. approximately 400
wounded and property damage esti
mated at $1,500,000.
Withdrawal of the troops today
was over the protest of the chamber
'. f commerce of Tulsa, but was in
accordance with advices of the spe
cial board of public welfare of seven
civic leaders, which has assumed
control of relief and rehabilitation.
According to Commissioner Adkin
;:om the police were aware that ne
gro radicals had been at work for
some time. He said that negro citi
zens had been warned several
uiLiiths ago that responsibility for
any trouble would rest upon the

as one of the principal leaders in the
disturbance about the court house
Tuesday which precipitated thevshoot

Lost All He Had.
O. W. Gurlev. probably the wealth
iest negro in the city, told the story
ot what happened in the negro sec
tion and declared that the belliger
ent negroes established headquarters
at the plant of a negro newspaper
early Tuesday evening, where they
assembled large quantities or guns
and ammunition. Negro runners
were sent out to rally reinforce
ments. Gurlev said.
leaver said he warned negroes
early Tuesdav evening that they
would cause the negro section to be
burned if they did not disperse and
disarm. "They only laughted at
me." Cleaver said. Cleaver, wealthy
before the riots, now has only the
clothes he wears. He paw a ray of
hope today, 'however, as Charles
Page, a wealthy oil man, offered to
erect a new home for him.
Gurlev said on the night of th?
riots he went te the newspaper of
fice about 9 o'clock and found activi
ties far advanced. .Men were com
ing in singly, and in little groups.
he said, uuns and ammunitiejn were
being collected from every available
source. Many of the men were mak
ing open threats and talking in a
most turbulent manner."
He said he was- unsuccessful in
persuading them to avoid trouble.
Gurlev said the publisher of the
naper was present, anil when he saw
him he was counseling the neeroes to
keep cool and avoid trouble. He

"There were not more than forty
or Mty men m the crowd ot armed
negroes who marched upon the court
house." Gurley said. "They were
nearly all 'dope' users or 'jake'
drinkers with police records. How
ever, mere were a lew more intelli

Gurley named the leader of th.t
gang, who he said was a tali negr:
who "came back from France with
exaggerated ideas concerning equal

or three stores in the negro quarter.

ON AN APPOINTMENT
Clitics of Governor McKelvie's S;
lecticn Say Appointment is Not
in Accord With the Law
Frank M. Coffey, secretary e-f the
state federation of labor, in discus
sing the appointment of the members
of the state beiard of mediation and
intervention in strikes and lockouts
by Governor McKelvie. said:
"This law was prepared and pass
ed on the theory that it might fur
nish an avenue through whi '
strikes and lockouts might be mini
mized and the public, the innocent
party to all labor differences, given
a chance to bring about an adjust
ment. "This law was called to the atten
tion of Governor McKelvie at the
time he hearing was had before him
in the anti-pitketing bill. During
his first term the geivernor had made
"Under the provisions ef the law
the governor is empowered to ap
point whom he pleases, subject, of
course, to the limitations in the law.
One member must be ;in employer,
one member must represent the gen
eral citizenship and be neither an
enipleiyer or an employe, the other
member must be a member of a labor
union affiliated with the state fedr
cition of labor.
"Whether Mr. Pitzer and Mr.
Towlt can start in to hear a com
plaint in which labor presents a
grievance with an open and impartial
mind and at the close of the hearing
give labor an even break with the
employer, is not. from a purely le
gal standpoint, a matte;- to;- discus
sion. Rut the appeintinent of Wil
liam Green is not in accord with
the state law. And if the law is not
ti be followed in the-creation of the
l.eiard it seems only fair to presume
that the operatiem and application
of the law will not be fair and iur
partial by a board created in open
violation of the law."
II. El wood, bnsinesss agent of the
carpenters' union, said:
"The carpenters' union of Lincoln
had intended to file a complaint be
fore the state Imard of mediation and
intervention in strikes and lockouts.
but the action of Governor McKelvie
in the selection of the personnel of
the board forces a dismissal of any
such intention." said II. El wood,
business agent of the carpenter's
"The union has been locked out
by the Lincoln contractors, not be
cause of any difference as to the scale
of wages, but for the sale reason
that the contractors refuse to em
ploy members e)f the union.
"The union had intended to file a
complaint before the state board al
leging an unwarranted lockout, and
that there was 'a combination be
tween the architects and the mater
ial men and the contractors to keep
charging the public the war prices
for construction by refusing the di
vision of building cost which gies
to the workmen."
Discussing Mr. Green's appoint
ment Mr. Elwood further says: "If
the labor member of the board be a
member of either the Ilavelock or
the Lincoln machinists' union he is
not a member of a local union affil
iated with the state federation of
labor, and therefore not qualified to
sit as a member of the board. State
