STILL THE OLD SOUTH.
The thirty-second annual reunion of
the United Confederate Veterans
which met in Richmond, Va., adopted
a report submitted by the historical
committee declaring the Civil War
was "deliberately and personally con
ceived" by Abraham Lincoln, and
that he was "personally responsible
for forcing the war upon the South."
The assertion was made in connec
tion with a recommendation that
Southern schools use a history of the
war period written bv Col. Huger W
Jackson of Curryville, Ga., which,
the committee said, "proved the truth
of its declaration regarding Lincoln's
responsibility in the war."
Asserting that the states of Mis
sissippi, Texas, the Carolinas and
Louisiana were now using histories
"fair to the South," the report de
clared that "the young children of
the South will now be taught that the
South was right, eternally and ever
lastingly right, in fighting for prin
ciples upon which our glorious coun
tiy was founded."
JEWS TO PROTEST.
A nation-wide" protest against the
anti-Semitic policies of Harvard
University, and the treatment ac
corded Leonard Kaplan in the Lucky
Bag, the United States Naval Acad
emy nublication, will be made by the
Jewish population generally, Louis
Friedman of Brooklyn has announced.
Organizations already are being
formed, he said, to seek legislative
protection against what he described
as the rising tide of racial antag
onism. If the Jews, with all their
wealth find it necessary to protest
against racial descriminations, it is
doubly necessary for, the colored, with
little wealth, to fi,ght against racial
A GOOD SUGGESTION.
Senator Arthur Capper of Kansas
suggests that Secretary of War
Weeks should resign.
"If a member of tlie President's
cabinet holds the views Secretary
-Weeks says he holds, whether as a
&5 1 i
private citizen or public official, he
should resign immediately as an offi
cial of the government, for he has
shown himself to be so wholly out of
sympathy with what he has sworn as
an official to maintain and uphold that
he is in no frame of mind to uphold
And the colored people know that
Weeks has jimcrowized the national
guard and the training camps, de
grading colored men to a segregated
status below other Americans.
WILL PROBE JEW BAN.
The American Federation of Labor
convention adopted a resolution
favoring an investigation "of the
alleged discriminatory action which
is said to be contemplated by Har
vard college* to bar admission of
Jews as students.
The resolution declared the federa
tion's disaproval of "any departure
from true liberal tradition," and con
demned as "un-American any policy
which may deny to any racial or re
ligious groups equal opportunities for
The resolution specified the federa
tion should cause the investigation to
be made and that the officers, if they
found that a ban were to be placed
on the Hebrews, should take "such
action as they deem feasible to re
move the discrimination contemplated
and to assure equal opportunties to
all, regardless of race and religious
It will be noticed that the resolu
tion declares as un-American any dis
crimination against any racial group.
It is well.

In a commencement address at
Northwestern University, Chicago,
Chase S. Osborn, former governor of
Michigan, said: "The white race has
seized three-fourths of the area of
the earth and placed two-thirds of its

One of the strange phases of jim

nine-tenths of the plans to degrade

are conceived in the brains of people
who call themselves Christians. In

No doubt some of the promoters
believe that they are doing SL great
thing for the colored people of Saint
Paul but they are mistaken.
No greater evil could come to Saint
Paul, to the white people as well as
the colored people, than the attempt
to segregate one group of citizens.
It is a thing which will serve to in
flame the fires of race prejudice.
It is inconceivable that any col
ored people could so belittle'them
selves as to be parties to so infam

whether it is so intended or not. We
