The proposition to establish a play

One of the strange phases of jim

A BLACK YEAR FOR COLORED
The first year of the Harding ad
ministration has been a distinct dis
appointment to right-minded, clear
thinging, far-sighted Christian Amer
icans, especially the colored people
who have been placed by fate under
the rule of the U. S. A.
The Filipinos, a colored race, have
been denied the freedom which was
solemnly promised them more than
twenty years ago. In 1921 there was
a farcical "investigation" of condi
tions, by the man who had been picked
to rule the islands and whose policy^
.had evidently been decided upon be-
fore the results 6f the "investigation"
had been received in the U. S. A.

The man sent to "investigate" and

all black people and Catholics in' re

have added insult to injury, by forc
ing jimcrowism into the Catholic
churches where separate masses are
now celebrated for colored and white
people. That is one of the sacrileges
of the rule in Haiti of the U. S. A.
The Harding administration has

When the President was a candi
date he addressed a large delegation
of colored people and said, "Fellow
Americans, fear not, America will not
fail you." Coolidge, the candidate,
handed out seme very touching
phrases couchei in the purest Bos
tonese, in which he made a plea for
more rights for the colored people.
Elder Will H. Hays and his assist
ants, including the "jimcrow" cam

and Perry Howard assured the peo
ple that the election of the Republi

practically a territorial paradise.
It was not long after March 4,
1921, that it became evident that a
policy of segregation was being form
ulated for Americans of darker hue.

The speeches of President Harding
in the South last fall, in which he
practically read the colored people
out of the Republican party and in
effect endeavored to relegate them
to an inferior status in the social or

group of loyal citizens.
The administration has invaded the
states in which the colored had an
actual part in the party organizations
and has practically decreed that they
must "fall in behind the white man,"
or get out.
The administiation started a K. K.

The U. S. Senate is being told of
the horrible atrocities committed by
Gen. Gregorio Semenoff, ataman of
the Russian Cossack. It is a terrible
recital and the grave and xeverend
senators are horrified, as the fearful
things were done 6,000 miles away by
people who are considered not more
than half civilized. Worse atrocities
were committed (according to the
testimony before the Senate investi
gating committee), by U. S. marines
in Haiti, and the details scarcely

SATURDAY APRIL 22
The last registration or the city
election to be held May 2nd is sched
uled for Saturday, April 22nd, when
the polls will be opened between the
usual hours of 6 A. M. and 9 P. M.
An intensive drive is now going
forward to secure as full a registra
tion as possible. At the first two
registration days a total of 51,810
voters qualified to cast ballots at the
city election. It is estimated that
there are between 90,000 and 100,000
qualified voters in St. Paul, and every
effort is being made to bring out at
least 15,000 more on April 22nd.
This will give a total of 65,000 regis
tered and would mean a vote of be
tween 55,000 and 60,000, allowing for
the usual shrinkage.
In view of the issues that are now
developing ij is imperative that all
