Chieo of police and sheriffs in districts where steel mills are located ordered out reserve officers and placed them a^ po*.nrs w*.»ere It was teared clashes might occur between strike sympathisers and men who attempted to return to the mills.

Shall A'Ih Have a White Way?
Owing to the fact that Ada has a number of things that no other cities of Oklahoma have, why not a White Way the same as other cities haw'’ Among the things that Ada has is the quality of water which is second to none; light and power plant thaf is far above the average; industrial factories to the extent of more than three million dollars;
k population of more than----;
four public school buildings and another under construction; a state institution known as Hast Central State Normal, and a number of other things that takes to make a
city of which Ada has and others
is it possible that Ada will be yet in the dark?
Ada has always been a town that was ready to so over the top the moment the signal was given and we feel confident that we have the co-operation of the city officers, tho Chamber of Commerce and every business firm and individual of the entire city. Therefore, we take this method of introducing to you a plan, for making a bigger, better, and greater ‘double A town.” There are a number of towns and cities over the country that could not be compared with Ada that are enjoying the results of civic attractiveness by using a number of ornamental street lights of which at a later date will be published in these columns.
The plans for putting over this installation w ill be as tollowg; First j as to where and what streets this will be erected. Oui plan would Ut from the Frisco depot to the Katy depot on Main St., from Broadway to Townsend, 12th St. from 10th St. to 12th St., on Townsend, from 10th to 12th on Broadway, which would require about 78 lights. This installation to be so constructed that extensions could be made from time lo time.
Second: Is the matter as to who pays for the installation. This can be easily done by free will donation by our property owners and business men along those streets, and after same is in operation, be-ginnig with the next fiscal year, the city would maintain and keep up this system.
The Unique Electric Company will assume the responsibility of soliciting subscriptions., collecting the funds and installing a modern White Way that will be agreed upon by committee selected by the Chamber of Commerce • and the city authorities that will be second to none in the state.
The estimate on cost will be given soon, and you will, no doubt, be surprised after seeing how little it will cost to have a modern, ornamental White Way.
We would be pleased to have some comment from any citizen who desires to do so through the press along this line, w’herher it be pro or con. If you want to ride on the big booster wagon, now is the time to load on. it requires no reservations for seats, there are always plenty for everybody. It has a self-comniencer and requires no time for c ranking.
Yours for a better city,

OMAHA, NEB., Sept. 29.—Mayor E. P. Smith, of Omaha, injured late yesterday when a mob attempted to lynch him during a race riot here, was still in a critical condition at a local hospital this morning. His physician, Dr. E. C. Henry, stated that the mayor had suffered a bad wound over the right eye. An x-ray picture w-ill be taken to ascertain if it is a bullet wound, the doctor said. Dr. Henry also said the mayor had a bad wound on his neck caused when members of the mob attempted to hang him.
After a night of mob rule during which an anti-negro mob made an attempt to hang Mayor Smith, the county court house was burned and man said to be an ex-soldier shot and instantly killed, the city was quiet today under the control of Federal troops from Ft. Omaha and Ft. Crook.
The mayor regained consciousness early today. The mayor’s condition was the result of an attempt made by the mob to hang him to a trolley pole because he advised against the lynching of William Brown, a negro, who was in the county jail charged with attacking a white girl on the outskirts of the city early last week.
With the coming of dawn today, Omaha down town section was a wreck as the result of the rioting. Practically all the known casualties I that were not fatal resulted front shooting. Thousands of shots were fired from various kinds of weap-! ons, all discharged in the open with ] thousands of people on the streets.
• Among those injured were a doz-i en police officers, three prisoners ; in the county jail, several city firemen and numerous pedestrians.
Mayor Smith was* seized by the mob on 17th Street near the court house at IO o'clock and wras threatened wTith lynching. He was hurried to Harney street and stopped at the foot of a trolly pole, on the cross arm of which was a coil of rope.
“Give us the key to the "If we can’t get the negro, lynch you,” were- the cries in the mob.
The rope was then placed about the mayor’s neck. Appalled at the possibility of murdering the city’s chief executive, many protests began to be heard. Then two officers cut the rope, hurried the mayor to an automobile and rushed him to a hospital.
The mayor’s law firm is at present defending two negroes charged with assaults on white women. The police assert that fact had much to do with some of the remarks made by members of the mob who had a hand in the attempt against his life. The fire which was started in the court house left the structure a ft • ■ mass of ruins. The property was
Serious Uttense valued at $1.500,OOO. The damage
j to other buildings could not be estimated early today, but it is believed many have been destroyed be-yon I restoration.
