|Glendive Independent, 2/9/1915:
"Color Line Is Drawn In Glendive"
"Considerable amusement was created in police court yesterday... . a
certain nomadic 'gentleman of color.'
"The colored gent, it appears, had blown into town and was engaged in
the artistic pursuit of begging, his efforts at this being furthered by
the fact that he was minus an arm." An argument ensued "concerning the
fact that no 'niggers' were allowed in town....
"This case brings up the fact that for many years there has been a
saying that 'the sun is never allowed to set on any niggers in
Glendive.' Whether or not there was actual truth in the saying may be
judged from the fact that at present our colored population is a
decidedly minus quantity."
..."of which same Glendive is so free at the present time that the
sight of one is a real curiosity."
