BERT WILLIAMS DEAD.
Egbert Austin (Bert) Williams,
the famous colored comedian, was
bmied with Masonic honors from the
Masonic temple of St. Cecile lodge in
New York city. Williams was a
member of Waverly Lodge No. 597
of Scotland, and it was at the cabled
lequest of the Grand Lodge of Scot
land that the services were held at
St. Cecile's, known as the theatrical
lodge of the city. Williams' sheep
skin apron received from the lodge
in Scotland was placed in his coffin.
Williams was 46 years old.
THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.
The "jimcrow negroes" who are
continually repeating "the North is
no better than the South" know they
are lying when they utter such rot.
The oppression of the colored people
is ten thousandfold greater in the
South than in the North. Ninety per
cent of the lynching occurs in the
South, and ALL of the disfranchise
ment and jimcrow laws.
A little instance which is illuminat
ing. A colored man was arrested in
Chicago last week charged with hav
ing assaulted a white woman with a
club, breaking her skull. A doctor
diagnosed his case as dementia prae
cox and he was committed to the
psycopathic hospital for treatment.
What would have happened in Geor
gia? Well this is what did happen
Geoi'gia last summer even when no
white woman was involved. A col
ored man shot a white man and in
turn was shot by a white mob. He
was taken to a hospital where he died
shortly after. About midnight the
white mob went to the hospital to
get the wounded colored man and
lynch him. Exasperated at finding
that he was dead, the mob broke into
the dead room, got the corpse, car
ried it to the outskirts of the city and
burned it to a crisp. The charged re
gains were then returned to the hos
pital. This happened in the city of
Augusta, Ga., in the Year of Our
Lord, Nineteen Hundred and Twenty

the President would sit up and take tain our full stature and status under
notice if the colored people kicked the American Constitution. Cringing
hard enough and in unison.
While the administration is quick
to come to the aid of "Americans
abroad," it does not hesitate to curse
'Americans at home." Colored
Americans have been jimcrowed in
every way right here in America.
The President's speeches in Alabama
and Georgia were curses upon pa
troitic Americans and double curses
because some lickspittle "leaders"
attempted to condone them.
Of all the fool things that we have
heard of lately, comes from the be
nighted state of South Carolina,
where one J. Walter Moon, a mem
ber of the state legislature, has in
troduced a bill in that august bodyT*ernor
which is intended to prohibit the
showing of pictures in colored motion
picture houses that contain the faces
of white women. He states that it
is a crime to have colored men and
women gazing at faces of white
women on the screen, and so would
make a drastic law compelling col
ored motion picture houses to show
pictures of colored people only. And,
it seems, that a majority of the mem
bers of the House are as full of
"moonshine" as Moon himself, for
thev actually took the measure seri
ously enough as to pass it. What
the asinine color prejudice of the
average Southerner will not cause
him to do is beyond our ken.
We understand that the bill now
awaits action in the South Caroling
senate. If made into a law it will
represent one of the most remarkable
precedents ever established even in
southern law-making bodies.
