APPEAL OPPOSES ARMY COLOR
THE APPEAL wrote the Secretary
of War for information relative to
the segregation of colored Americans
in the United States army. The fol
lowing is the reply:
Mr J. Adams,
Editor "THE APPEAL,"
St. Paul, Minnesota.
I am in reecipt of your letter of
May 14th, in which you take excep
tion to the idea of organizing colored
troops into a separate division for
National uard service. In reply I
may say that although the separate
organization of a colored division has
not been ordered by the War De
partment for peace time National
Guard service, it is strictly in ac
cordance with the policy of this De
partment that colored units shall) be
organized into complete and separate
divisions whenever the necessity arises
for the formation of such units in
time of war. This policy is based
upon the experience gained by the
War Department throughout our
country's military history. It was
carried out during the World War in
the organization of the 92d and 93d
Divisions which saw overseas service,
and I am surprised that this plan
which met with such thorough ap
proval at the time should now be
I think that you must have been
incorrectly informed as to the War
Department's attitude on this ques.
tion for years is the first criticism of
this policy which we have received.
On the other hand this office has re
ceived numerous letters from colored
citizens endorsing the organization of
combat divisional units of colored
membership and objecting to the fact
that the War Department has found
it necessary (in view of limited ap
propriations and the difficulty of
training units scattered over wide
areas) to restrict for the present the
organization of colored troops in the
National Guard to those units that
operate directly under orders of the
Corps or Army Commanders and
which do not enter into the composi
tion of a division.
Very truly yours,
(Signed) JOHN W. WEEKS,
Secretary of War.
This is the reply of THE APPEAL
St. Paul, Minn., June 28, 1921.
to Secretary Weeks:
Hon. John W. Weeks,
Secretary of War,
Washington, D. C.
I have received your letter without
date written in reply to any letter of
May 14, asking information relative
to the formation of a separate color
ed division of the National Guard.
While I am pleased to learn that no
such organization has been ordered
for peace time. Iregret to hear that
it is the policy of t.he "^ar Depart-
WORK ENOUGH HERE.
Without questioning the sincerity of
the pan-African propagandists we do
not believe such work is feasible at
this time. To use a strong expres
sion the colored people of the United
States are, "in a hell of a fix," just
And again, the colored people of
the United States are* Americans and
not Africans. Their duty is at home,
and God knows there is work enough
here to employ all the brains and
money the race can command for a
thousand years to come.
We have nothing to offer South
and Central Americans and West In
dians except perhaps, race riots,
lynchings, peonage, segregation, jim
crow laws and the K. K. K. There
is little chance to do anything in
Africa. Why fritter away time and
money chasing a will o' the wisp.
Would it not be better to clean out
our own Augean stables before we
attempt to clean up the world? When
the United States has been redeemed
it will be time enough to start to
redeem other lands. FRIENDS.
The writer reecntly overheard a
black man, just from the South, say:
"I think the Southern whites are the
best friends of my 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."
THE SIN OF SILENCE
To sin by silence when we should
protest makes cowards out of men.
The human race has climbed on pro
test. Had no voice been raised against
injustice, ignorance and I list, the in-
quisition yet would serve the law, and
guillotines decide our least disputes.
The few who dare must speak and
speak again to right the wrongs of
many.Ella Wheeler Wilcox.
ment to organize separate divisions at
any time, either in peace or war.
The matter of organizing colored
soldiers into separate ^units is funda
mentally wrong, and I believe uncon
stitutional. It is a wrong which has
continued since the organization of
colored troops, but the continuation
of a wrong does not make it right.
It is a wrong which the World War,
fought as it was claimed "to make
the world safe for democracy," should
have righted. It is wrong because it
It is wrong because it takes the
colored soldiers 'out of their proper
places in the states in which they
live and makes them a segregated
part of the Federalized National
Guard. It denies them their rights
as citizens of their respective states
and forecs them into a special segre
gated status which is not applied to
other groups of Americans, such as
Germans, Irish, Russians, French,
Poles, Spanish, Portuguese, Danes,
Swedes, British, Austrians, Hungari
ans, Serbians, Bulgarians, Belgians,
etc. and it is not applied to Indians,
Jews, Japanese, Chinese, Koreans,
Javanese, East Indians, Burmese, and
other colored races.
If the colored man is a citizen, he
is entitled to ALL the rights of citi
zenship and this includes the right
to be on an absolute equality with
all other citizens. It is unjust for
the government to single him out
from the various elements which
compose American citizenship and
place upon him the badge of a pariah
I am sorry to learn that I am the
first to protest against this wrong,
but trust that from now on protests
may come in by the thousands, to the
end that you may be induced to
change this policy of your predeces
Very truly yours,
J. Q. ADAMS,
Editor THE APPEAL.
There are a few white people, very July 3, 1920, a second'special delivery
few, living in the South, who are letter was sent to Mr. Johnson con-
Christians and who are willing to ac-' tabling the following: "You should

are not friends in any sense of thelican National Conumittee. Many

THE MAN WHO DARES
I honor the man who in the consci
entious discharge of his duty dares to

toms are evidences of friendship. And
again some of the most pronounced
enemies of the coltored 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 who practically gave
their lives to prove their friendship.
And today John Haynes Holmes and
thousands of others are better friends
to the colored group, than some who,
black in heart as well as in face,
"cringe and bend the supple Hinges of
the knee that thrift may follow
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 Roosevelt
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
on itwhy not you? I had hoped,
that you would step into the 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
partihents in Washington and else
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 find 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 wiH 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 the Repub
lican party be committed to opposi
tion to "jimcrowism?" "You will re
call that prior to, th6 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
Hi 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, fathei 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 M. 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.
Collector of Customs, Washington,
D. Collector of Internal Revenue,
Honolulu, Hawaii RecejvedWf Pub
lic Moneys, Jackson, Missi Collector
of Customs, Beaufort, Si Collector
of Customs, Georgetown, S C, and
Collector of Internal Revenue, Atlan
ta, Ga. Collector of Customs, 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 confinmed
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 tlie United States,. Lewis was an
assistant attorney general Howard is
an assistant to the Attorney General.
There is a gre&t- 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 against
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 govem
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
were counted are not satisfied with
what lias been done. They feel that
it would been better to have had
nothing at all rather than inferior
appointments, which tend to lower
their status as citizens. Some high
class colored n\en ought to get a few
high class presidential appointments
just as under former Republican ad-
uuniBirationsigu 5,* jfigv T

was everyone 'was eager to witness

and hundreds could not get in the
edifice, but had to be saitsfied with
craning their necks to catch glimpses
of the large wedding party as the
motor cars deposited their precious
'oads at the curbing in the front of
the church, from which a broad car
pet reached to the door.

After the ceremony the bridal par
ty left the church and motored to
the home of the bride's mother^ 424
Edmund street, where the wedding
presents were displayed and the wed

being profusely decorated with ever

spent two days and returned home.
Just as she was leaving her wed

her bouquet and it was caught by
Miss Medora Roberts, one of the
bridesmaids from Chicago.
Of course the newly-weds were
showered with rice and old shoes as
is the custom.
Among the prenuptial functions

The grand iinale and social function
par excellence was the dancing party
given by the Cannon family at Royal
Arcanum Hall, Nicollet and Lake St.,
Minneapolis, last Wednesday night.
This hall is one of the most beauti
ful and best arranged for a social
function, and the more than 250
guests present imadeait a scene that
will be long remembered. This was
the first time we ever had this beau
