K. K. K. SIMMONS TALKS.
In a recent speech to the Missis
sippi Confederate veterans at Tupelo,
Miss., Col. William J. Simmons, im
perial wizard of the Ku Klux Klans,
said that what the confederate sol
dier lost on the battlefield was won
back for the South, and for white
civilization by these same soldiers in
the guise of the Ku Klux Klan, and
when he declared that what the mem
bers of the original Ku Klux Klan
won for the white race would be
guarded religiously as a sacred her
itage by the men of today, a rebel
yell was given.
TO "CONVERT" THE HAITIANS.
According to the memorial filed by
the Haitian commission now in the
United States, nearly 10,000 inhab
itants of that unhappy isle have been
luthlessly slaughtered by the marines
sinec the American occupation in
Now missionaries and courts mar
tial have been ordered for the "wel
fare" of those not as yet converted
into corpses. The rule of the navy
has evidently been drastic, but God
save the Haitians from the activities
of the hypocrites who represent the
orthodox churches of the U. S.
The Haitians are all Catholics and
have opposed oppression to the death.
Converted to the orthodox religion of
the Protestant U. S. brand they would
lose all manhood and accept jim
crowism without a protest. For five
years the Haitians have lost their
lives only now a subtle attempt is
being .made to take that which is
greater than lifeMANHOOD.
ILLINOIS HOUSE SCORES K. K. K.
State Representative S. B. Turner,
of Chicago, who is always on the job,
had the following resolution adopted
in that body:
"Whereas, it is reported that there
are representatives of the Ku Klux
Klan attempting to organize chapters
or posts of that organization in vari
ous cities of the state of Illinois and
"Whereas, it is believed that the
Ku Klux Klan is an organization which
operates in defiance of law and order
and against the best interests and
welfare of the people at large now,
therefore, be it
"Resolved by the house of repre
sentatives of the state of Illinois, that
we condemn and deplore the attempt
to organize posts of the Ku Klux Klan
in the' state of Illinois, and urge all
good citizens of the state in the in
terests of law and order and the wel
fare of our state to do all in their
power to discourage the operation of
this organization in the state of
THE JEWS, THE CHRISTIANS AND
Speaking in the house of commons,
Winston Spencer Churchill, coionial
secretary of Great Britain, discussing
the formation of an Arab state in
Mesopotamia admitted that there was
a graver problem in Palestine much
smaller in a military sense. The
Arabs feared that they would be
swamped in a few years by immigra
tion from Central Europe and Russia,
and that the Jews would gain abso
lute control of Palestine. He de
clared, however, that THIS WAS
QUITE ILLUSORY no Jews would
be brought in beyond the number
that could be provided for by the de
velopment of the country's resources.
And the Jews thought tfhey would
have a "home land" all to themselves.
The Pope, head of the Catholic
church, in an allocution creating
three cardinals, "deplores the priv
ileged position enjoyed by the Jews
in Palestine, which is dangerous for
Addressing a number of young
Jesuits about to start for the Philip
pines, Archbishop Hayes of New York
regrets that the British government
would not allow these young Jesuit
priests to go to India ,simply because
they were of Irish birth."
In the meantime Britain will rule
Palestine and see to it that the Jews
do not get complete control, so the
hope of a real Jewish "home land"
goes glimmering. And the good old
world will continue on its orbit utter
ly oblivious of the rows between the
Christians, Mohammedans and Jews.

THE MAN WHO DARES
I honor the man who in the consci
entious discharge of his duty dares to
stand alone the world, with ignorant,
intolerant judgment, may condemn,

parade was a number of colored chil
dren who wer,e placed at the tail-end
of the procession and thus compelled
to publicly honor the man whose life
was spent in devising methods to de
grade the race. It was an atrocious
thing to do, but "very southern." If
a parallel event had occurred in Ire
land, the Irish mothers would have
given their Child something to pro
duce sickness so that the children
would not have been compelled to
honor their enemies. One may not
always be able to prevent being kick
ed, but it is not necessary to thank
the one who administers the kick.
The writer reecntly overheard a
black man, just from the South, say:
"I think the Southern whites are the
best friends of any people." He was
dirty, ignorant and degraded and ut
terly unable to appreciate the differ
ence between the North and the
South, but there are men, living in
the South who make some pretences
to education who have said the same.
Of course they were looking for the
"good nigger pat."
There are a few white people, very
few, living in the South, who are
Christians and who are willing to ac
cord to colored people all the rights
of citizenship, but the great majority
are not friends in any sense of the
word, unless jimcrow laws and cus
toms are evidences of friendship. And
again some of the most pronounced
enemies of the colored people are
black and yellow men who are con
tinually saying things which make
the whites |hold the whole colored
group in contempt, because no man
can really respect another man who
believes himself to be inferior and
makes public announcement of this
Some colored people denounce all
white people. That |is unjust and
wrong. Garrison, Lovejoy, Harriet
Beecher Stowe, Phillips and (thousands
of others were whb practically gave
their lives to prove their friendship.

Under the above heading the Wash
ington (D. C.) Tribune prints the
The announcement of the appoint
ment of the Hon. Perry W. Howard
vokes this question: Where do we
come in as a race in this appoint
ment? The Tribune is of the opin
ion that there is anore involved in
these appointments of our supposed
race leaders than a mere $5,000 salary.
In fact, The Tribune is not elated
over either of the three appointments
that have been dished out to our
group. They are nothing more than
mere clerkships. The first one, that
of Lieut. Flipper, is regarded as the
best of the three. The last two,
of Phil Brown and Perry Howard,
apparently show that the pie hunters
are tired of waiting and are willing
to accept any old thing offered. Of
what service is either of these
pointments to the race?
Neither of these appointments come
under the category of "Presidential
appointments," requiring their names
to be sent up to the Senate for con
firmation. They have no definite
status and may be cut out at any
time. Therefore President Harding
has not made a single appointment of
a colored man during the 11 weeks
of his administration.
In a recent public address, Mr.
Brown said that he "had no plans"
for his department and in accepting
the position he was not pleased with
the paragraph setting forth the sta
tus of his positiof*. Then Why show
the yellow streak and accept a posi
tion, the status of which does not
meet with one's moral sense of equity
and justice? Yet the information is
sent out that these appointments are
of a great benefit to the race.
Why complain of segregation in the
civil service, then turn around and
accept a "special clerkship" where
one is placed off in a segregated cor
ner and given insifinificant, segregat
ed duties? Is there consistency in
this? If the Republican Party has a
sense of appreciation for the con
stant and unfailing support of color
ed people, now is the time to demon
strate it. We are of the opinion that
the G. O. P. is long on promises, but
short on fulfilling them. And our
supposed race leaders, politicians, et
al., should have the moral courage of
their convictions and not fall for
every worn-eaten plum that (may be
offered. Especially is this true in the
case of Mr. Brown and Mr. Howard,
who are in a financial position en
abling them to be more cautious in
accepting these "special," segregated,
"assistant-ship." The race is demand
ing appointments commensurate with
its political powV, its intelligence
and taxpaying worth, and our polit
ical leadens should support us in this
It will be recalled that the "jim
crow assistant" business was started
during the world war, when the then
secretary of war appointed a colored
man as a "confidential clerk" as
shown /by the official records. It was
given out that he was a "special as
sistant to the secretary of war," and
many of the people were deceived
and really believed that a colored
man had been appointed assistant
secretary of war. It was evidently a
camouflage for that specific purpose.
Those who were versed in such things
knew that a real assistant secretary
to any member of the President's
cabinet, must be nominated by the
President and confirmed by the Sen
ate. The so-called "special assistant"
to the Democratic secretary of war
was simply a "handy man" to act as
a buffer between Baker and the col
ored people when they came to make
complaints about the outrageous
treatment of the colored soldiers in
the jimcrow cars and jimcrow train
ing camps in the United States and
in the labor" battalions and on the
firing line in France. The "special
assistant" had no actual status as an
official of the government.
In the campaign of 1920, THE AP
PEAL called the attention of the
Republican managers to the fact that
in a previous campaign, Marcus A.
Hanna had appointed three colored
men as actual members of the Ad
visory Committee of the Republican
National Committee and advised that
the same be done in the Harding
Cooldige campaign and that jim
crowism be entirely eliminated. In
this THE APPEAL was supported by
a number of prominent colored men
from all parts of the country. Then
Henry Lincoln Johnson of Georgia
won for himself his place as Repub
lican national committeeman from
Georgia. THE APPEAL was proud
of his success which he had achieved
in spite of the efforts of Rbosevelt
and other leaders to prevent his elec
tion, and sent him a letter of con
gratulation and suggested that he
ought to be a memebr of the execu
tive committee of the party organ
ization and offered what little aid
that could be thrown his way. He
was asked to use his influence to pre
vent any segregation in the campaign.
No reply came to this letter. On
July 3, 1920, a second special) delivery
letter was sent to Mr. Johnson con
taining the following: "You should1were
have been made a member of the
executive committee of the Repub
lican National Committee. Many
women, novices in politics were put
on itwhy not you? I had hoped
that you would step into tihe inner
circle of party management. Hope it
is not yet too late, can anything be
done?" No reply was ever received
to this letter, but shortly after a
special "colored" bureau was organ
ized with Mr. Johnson as the head
and Mr. Perry Howard as secretary.
THE APPEAL continued its work
of trying to get pledges from the
Republican party leaders that they
would cut out segregation in the de-
where, if they were successful in
electing their candidates. Howard
got hold of one of the letters ad
dressed to one of the Republican par
ty officials and replied in part as
follows: "I, perchance came across
a copy of your letter, and I Arid that
you are true to your previous record
in standing out for those things
which affect our interests. I think,
however, in this instance, you press
the issue a bit too far."
"You will recall that until the Demo
cratic party assumed control of af
fairs at Washington, there was no
segregation at Washington. Then, why
should we demand that Jh& Repub
lican party be committed to opposi
tion to "jimcrowism?" "You will re
call that prior to the reign of the
Wilson oligarchy there was no color
line in the United States Army. Then
why should we demand that the Re
publican party commit itself on this
question?" After criticising THE
APPEAL for endeavoring to eliminate
the danger of segregation, it is not
surprising that he now accepts an
appointment which carries less dig
nity than the place held by William
H. Lewis under President Taft.
Colored men have held representa
tive places under every Republican
administration since the time Presi
dent Grant came into power, and
even under Democratic President
Cleveland they were given honorable
presidential appointments. Cleveland
appointed Mr. Trotter, father of that
valiant defender of the right, William
Monroe Trotter, recorder of deeds for
the District of Columbia.
Frederick Douglass was at one time
marshal of the District of Columbia,
Blanche K. Bruce was Register of
the Treasury and John Langston
served as minister to Haiti and under
the last Republican "regime colored
men were appointed, confirmed by the
Senate and served in the following
offices: Assistant Attorney General,
Register of the Treasury, Auditor for
the Navy, Recorder of Deeds for the
Distict of Columbia, assistant Regis
ter of the Treasury, Collector of In
ternal Revenue at Jacksonville, Fla.
Register of the Land Office, Mont
gomery, Ala. Collector of Internal
Revenue, New York City Receiver of
Public Moneys, Little Rock, Ark.r
Collector of Customs, Washington,
Collector of Internal Revenue,
Honolulu, Hawaii Received of Pub
lic Moneys, Jackson, Miss Collector
of Customs, Beaufort, a Collector
of Customs, Georgetown, S C, and
Collector of Internal Revenue, Atlan
ta, Ga Collector of Customsi, Savan
nah, Ga. Register of Land Office,
New Orleans, La. Collector of Cus
toms, Charleston, S. Surveyor
General of Louisiana Receiver of
Public Moneys, New Orleans, La, and
a number of others.
These were all presidential appoint
ments and each one was confirmed
by the Senate. In addition there
were a number of special assistant
district attorneys, deputy collectors
of customs, deputy collectors of in
ternal revenue and other officialss
who were appointed by the heads of
the various departments. And under
a former Republican administration a
colored man served as minister to
Santo Domingo. Without exception
the colored men in presidential of
fices served the government faithful
ly and with credit to themselves and
the group they represented.
NOW READ THIS CAREFULLY:
William H. Lewis of Massachusetts
was appointed ASSISTANT ATTOR-
NEY GENERAL OF THE UNITED
STATES, a presidential appointment,
confirmed by the Senate of the Unit
ed States. Perry Howard of Missis
sippi has been appointed SPECIAL
ASSISTANT to the Attorney General
of the United States. Lewis was an

There is a great difference in the
status. Lewis was an official How
ard is an assistant to an official and
has been assigned to special work on
the claims of colored people agaiast
the United States. If the matter
stopped with Howard it would not
make much difference, but it affects
the citizenship status of every colored
person in the country and segregates
colored people from every other
group of American citizenship, and
establishes a dangerous precedent.
Now after 400,000 colored men
served in the war "to make the world
safe for democracy, and with the Re
publican party, to which the colored
voter has always been a faithful ally,
in complete control of the govern
ment, it is infamous that the party
leaders should insult 'the people by
giving inferior appointments, and it
is humiliating to think that colored
men will accept such places. It will
be noted that the men appointed are
Northern voters, who voted for the
Republican nominees and whose votes
counted are not satisfied with
what has been done.

nothing at all rather than inferior
appointments, which tend to lower
their status as citizens. Some high
