National Business League.
Editor, The Appeal:I take the lib
erty of asking the use of the columns
of yotir valued newspaper to remind
our people of the fourth annual meet
ing of the National Negro Business
League to be held in Nashville, Tenn.,
during the coming summer. The peo
ple of Nashville have already begun
making thorough and elaborate prep
arations for the meeting of the
League, and from every point of view
the next gathering promises to be the
largest and most important in the
history of the organization. I espe
cially desire to request that local Ne
gro Business Leagues be organized
and sustained in every community
where there are no such Leagues at
the present time and in this connec
tion. ,to express the wish that new life
and vigor be put into the work of the
local Leagues already organized.
It sems to be the universal verdict
of our people that since the organiza
tion Of the National Negro Business
League at Boston in 1900, the busi
ness interests of our people have been
stimulated and increased throughout
the cpuntry many per cent., and all
agree that the National Negro Busi
ness League has more than justified
its existence. It is important that lo-i

Republican Judicial Convention.
The Cook County Republican Judi
cial Convention met in the First Regi
ment Armory and nominated a ticket
to be voted for atthe Judicial election
June 1. The ticket nominated is in
every respect a strong one and favor
ably appeals to the consideration of
the intelligent voter.-^ All of the sit
ting judges were renominated except
Judges Smith and' Waterman. The
new men placed on the ticket are men
of recognized legal talent and possess
ing the other qualifications that make
the cool headed, unprejudiced judge.
Of the old men who were renom
inated but little need be said. They
have made their own records as good
lawyers and able jurists, and should
receive a vote of confidence from the
County electors.
Following is the ticket:

ADDRESS TO THE COUNTRY.
It is evident to the thoughtful among
us that we are passing through one of the
most critical periods of our existence In
this country. Questions that immediately
concern the liberty and well being of one
eighth of the United States and scarcely
to less degree the whole population of the
country are pressing for treatment as
never before. The recorded experience of
mankind teaches that in public matters
the equality of each is the surest guar
antee of the liberty and safety of all the
members of society. If it be true that the
country can not endure 'half free and
half slave it follows as a necessary corol
lary that the manhood of no state can
with safety be divided, in nearly equal
parts into voters and non-voters.
A -systematic effort has been inaugur
ated on the part of the South which has
for its obiect the withdrawal the fran
chise from the Afro-Americans of that
section, and their reduction to a position
of absolute subserviency in all the rela
tions of life. Even college graduates and
men of business and .wealth have Keen
denied the right of franchise. Ithaa been
openly declared by some of most
prominent leaders of the HOUtB tnftt it
was the intention of the framers of the
new constitutions to disfranchise as many
Afro-Americans as possible and leave
every Caucasian in full possession of the
suffrage. The effect has been that not
only has the Afro-American been dis
franchised but also that a very large
number of Caucasians, who previous to
the adoption of these constitutions par
ticipated in elections, have ceased to reg
ister and vote, and thus the very founda
tions of republican institutions have been
rendered insecure.
W contend for our constitutional
rights on the ground that the right of
suffrage which is the basis of the indi
vidual sovereignty of the American citi
zen, which in turn is the basis of the ag
gregate sovereignty of the whole body
politic, has been conferred upon its citi
zens by the Federal Government. The
powers of the Federal Government were
not conferred by a single state but by all
of the states, therefore the National Gov
ernment can enforce the provisions of the
Constitution.
We heartily commend the Afro-Ameri
cans of Virginia, Alabama. Louisiana,
and other states, who are seeking redress
through the courts of the land and we
pledge them our moral and financial sup
port
W denounce the mob murders now so
prevalent in this country?*"'
W call the attention or the country to
a" condition of service on- many farms in
a number of the Southeras^states resem
bling very much the old peonage system
and in violation of the Thirteenth Amend
ment to the "Pfederal Constttutton, andask
for .legislation looking to he remedying of
the evil.
We submit our protest against the un
fair practices in the transportation of
passengers in Southern states, discrim
inating unjustly against Afro-Americans
requiring of them the highest rates for
travel and providing in return the .poorest
accommodations in carriage and we in
voke the exereise of the powers of the
Inter-State Commerce Commission, by
that tribunal, to prevent discriminations
in rates and accommodations against in
ter-state passengers.
W appeal to the Congress of the Unit
ed States for favorable action upon the
several measures now pending therein for
the appointment of a commission to in
quire into the condition of the Afro
Americans of the country.
W heartily endorse the deliverances of
President Roosevelt with references to
the fitness for appointment to office, and
the attitude of the Federal Government
toward all of its citizens, regardless of
race or color. has imparted new life
and vigor to the time-honored principles
and, traditions of. human rights, and. has
given hope and inspiration to a people
struggling heroically beneath the burden
of hate and proscription. W commend
Theodore Roosevelt to th6 affection and
confidence ot our' people regardless of
party affiliation.
