NOT TO SEGREGATE NEGROES.
Finnell's Name Used on Ordinance Without His Knowledge.
Upon the request of Alderman Finnell, whose name was on the ordinance introduced in the lower house of the council denying negroes the right to establish a residence in the district bounded by Thirtieth to Twenty-fifth street and Indiana avenue to Raytown road, the public improvements committee yesterday decided to kill the ordinance.
"The first knowledge I had that such an ordinance was to be presented was when it was read in the council Monday night," explained Alderman Finnell. "I understand that it was drawn up in the offices of the city counselor, and some one took the liberty of using my name as the father of it."
