Tulsa, Ok!., June S. Organizers
of the "African Blood Brotherhood,'
said to be an international negro se
cret society, whose activities incite
racial hatreds, passed through Okla
Iiorna two months ago and organized
a Tulsa chapter of the society, ac
cording to a statement by a public
official here, who declared evidence
of it was in the hands of the author
The natural suspicion is that some
leaders of the negro mob who in
vaded the white district 1 uesday
nyiy have been linked with this so
ciety. Investigations are now afoot to
substantiate the theory that the
heavy store of ammunition that ex
ploded with the burning of the Af
rican Methodist church Wednesday
morning, was secreted in the base
ment of the buitding by this so
ciety. A negro editor is said to be na
tional leader of the society, with
headquarters in New York, from
which he publishes The 'Crisis, an
alleged incendiary negro periodical.
One Leader Held.
The police say they have the
names of four negro agitators, one
of whom is now being held. He
claims to be a minister from Taft,
Okl. Search is now being made for
the three others.
Negroes were organizing as early
as 5 o'clock Tuesday night at the
office of a Tulsa negro newspaper,
edited more or less clandestinely, ac
cording to a statement by O. W.
Gurley, a wealthy negro, who suf
fered heavy property loss in the
burning of the black belt. He said
the guns and ammunition were be
ing distributed among the negroes
at this center and that runners were
being dispatched through the negro
belt to arouse the blacks.
Further corrorborative evidence of
at least some degree of prior organ
ization was adduced by a statement
by a police officer that the police
bad been notified at y o clock lues
day night by the Tulsa telephone ex
change that they bad intercepted a
telephone message to Muskogee ask
ing that 500 armed negroes be rushed
to Tulsa to supplement the black
forces here. The exchange reported
that the reply was to the effect that
men would be rushed to the scene.
The Tulsa police, it was stated, at
once notified the Muskogee police,
who placed guards at all roads and
railroads leading toward Tulsa.
City Officials Silent
There was a report that documents
taken from arrested negroes and said
to be in the hands of the authorities
give details of the establishment of
the African Blood Brotherhood, but

Johnstown Flood Stands Out as
Greatest of All Like Disasters
Several disastrous, floods in this
country in the last 20 years have had
death lists running into the hun
dreds, but only two of them have
been caused by torrential rains.
One was the flood in 1913 that
ran up a death list of 730 and prop
erty loss of $180,873,000 in Ohio
and Indiana. In 1903 about 300
lives were lost in a cloudburst at
The greatest disasters caused by
floods in this period have been in
Texas, two of them at Galveston,
causing loss of lives running into
The flood that stands foremost
in the memory of the country was
that of Johnstown on May 31, 1889.
in which 2,209 lives were lost and
$10,000,000 worth of property de
stroyed or swept away. This was
not due to a storm, but to the break
ing of the reservoir of Lake Cone
iruugli, a body of water two miles
and a half long, a mile and a half
wide and more than 100 feet deep.
This held then a larger volume of
water than any other reservoir in
Highest Pressure Flood.
The distance from the lake to
Johnstown was 18 miles and it was
estimated that the flood covered
this distance in about seven min
utes. It was the highest pressure
flood in history and after sweeninz
Johnstown, the water rushed on so
swiftly that bodies were found next
morning in the Allegheny river at
1'ittsburgh, 78 miles away.

along the Texas coast occurred on
September 18, 1900, causing a loss
of 6,000 lives and nearly $JO,000,000
damage. This flood caused by a
hurricane from the Gulf of Mexico,
which hurled great masses of water
miles inland. The greatest force
of this flood struck at Galveston
and for 30 miles along the shore
both above and below Galveston.
Thousands of persons were made
homeless and the acts of pillage and
robbery of the dead and living has
been unsurpassed in the history of
flood districts, according to army
officers who were at the city after
the flood and also at San Francisco
after the earthquake when similar
excesses were checked by Brigadier
General Frederick Funston.
Brazos Valley Disaster.
A year before this first Galveston
flood, a flood in the Brazos valley
in Texas caused hundreds of
thousands of dollars damage and
serious loss of lives. This flood
was followed by the bursting of a
dam at Austin the next -year, caus
ing $1,000,000 damage and serious
loss of lives. In the same year a
series of floods in the Colorado
river valley caused heavy loss oi
lives and property damage.
In the floods in Ohio and Indiana
in 1913, thee itj hardest hit was
Dayton, where a first estimate of
the dead was placed at 2,000 and a
property damage approaching $100,
000,000. When all the figures were
gathered after the flood, however,
it was learned that the list of dead
was 732 for the two states and a
property loss of $180,873,000. More
than 60,000 buildings were flooded.
Calls Upon People to
Washington, June 5. The Anti
Saloon league is calling upon the
American citizenry to volunteer
espionage of bootlegging and other
violations of the prohibition en
forcement law during the lull in
official activities, due to a shortage
of government funds.
"The $200,000 appropriation for
law enforcement adopted by the
senate," said Wayne B. Wheeler,
counsellor for the league, "will give
relief as soon as it is available.
Many of the enforcement men,
however, have had to find new posi
tions, and they will probably not be
available. Others have been waiting
to see if congress would act. Un
til the men are back on the job,
the people should use all of the
power available to check lawlessness
of the liquor interests. The tem
porary let down was followed by
a marked increase in lawlessness.
"It not only is the privilege, but the
obligation of every good citizen to
report any violation of the liquor
laws which come within their
To seal In the
Present Readustment to Nor
malcy Is Really a Boon
To Young People.
"There is no use to deny that
there is a lot of unemployment in
America," President H. B. Boylcs
of Boyles college, saysi
"It's a calamity to many people,
of course, but it will prove the best
thing that ever happened for thou
sands of young people just making
their start in life.
"For the last five years employ
ment actually has been too plentiful
for the good of our young people.
For five summers, high wages have
literally been flung at the heads of
young men and women just leaving
the public schools. They had their
choice of dozens of jobs, with the
bidders for their services apparently
competing to see which could offer
the highest pay.
"It was too tempting. In thou
sands of eases, without a thought of
the future, positions were accepted
that required no skill or training.
"But this is now ancient history.
We are returning to 'normalcy.'
Thousands of young people who
yielded to the temptation of high pay
for work that did not require skill
or training are looking for jobs.
They would be glad to have their
old jobs back at almost any wages.
"How much better for them had
they taken thought of the future,
sacrificed a few months of good pay
and prepared themselves properly
for good positions offering steady
employment and with every oppor
tunity for advancement Now they
can only regret their action and look
with envy upon their acquaintances
who did prepare themselves and who
arc now untouched by the wave of
"My advice to them is to waste
no time no time in idleness, no time
in job hunting. Let them not only
plan against future unemployment,
but plan the present summer against
unemployment. Let them use every
day of it industriously, in acquiring
a training that will fit them for a
clean, steady, responsible, good-paying
position in the business world."

Morning Classes Are
Found to Be Success
Another advantage of the 8 to
12:30 school session for a business
college is especially apparent during
the summer months, says Prof. J. A.
Voungstrom, manager of the Ameri
can Institute of Business Efficiency,
I. O. O. F. building, Fourteenth and
Dodge streets. In addition to allow
ing the customary number of hours
in a day it offers the student the
cool, pleasant part of the day for
study, when the mind is fresh and
capable of its work.
By using the cool morning hours,
he says, it is possible for us to con
tinue the shorthand and typewriting
department, the bookkeeping and
accounting department in both the
day and the night school all summer.
Salesmanship will be the only course
Last year, he says, some of our
