Richest Negro Girl Sues For $1.730.000. Suit to recover $1,730,000 from B. B. Jonop, wealthy oil producer, was filed in the district court at Sapulpa last week by L. R. Kershaw, as next friend of Sarah Rector, 13-year-old negro girl, whose guardianship troubles are now occupying the attention of the county court. The araout of money received by ones for the oil he has produced and' sold from Sarah Rector's lease in Creek county. It is alleged that Jones has sold $1,250,000 worth of oil from the Rector lease and the additional $320,000 asked in the suit is claimed because it is asserted that the girl could have disposed of her lease at a bonus in that amount if Jones had not been operating on it. Sweeney's petition will be argued September 27, before Judge Leahy, of Musko&ee, and if he is appointed guar* dian, or* even if Porter's appointment held* illegal, it will have an important bearing on the Creek county case; Sarah Rector is the richest Negro girl in the world, agd Uvea in thiftv Pty.
