VOTE FOR REPUBLICANS
Before another issue of THE
APPEAL appears, the people of
Minnesota will have chosen the men
they desire to place in charge of the
affairs of this state.
It is the duty of patriotic Ameri
cans to elect a Republican congress
to sustain the President in the hand
ling of the great problems cf the
The records show that a Demo
cratic congress cannot be trusted to
promptly and properly handle war
work. Many of the big war meas
ures would have failed if they had
not had the loyal support of the Re
publicans. As an illustration, the se
lective service law which the Demo
crats tried to defeat, was forced
through congress by the Republican
members. And there were many
other similar cases.
ABOUT 1,000 NEWSPAPER MEN
Gene Fowler, a first-class news
paper worker, and editor of "The
Club Reporter," published by the
Newspaper Club of New York city,
wants an editorial for his paper.
Said he: "We have more than'one

Paris, Nov. (Crusader Service).
The proposal to permit colored men
to officer white trench regiments is
meeting with opposition here on the
part of those French who "curry
favor" with the United States and
profess France's need of keeping

"One would think," the deputy
complains, "it was a novelty for col

The immediate cause of all this
talk was Carpentier's defeat by

it long has been evident that the

which will be only 25,000,000 in a
generation if the present rate of de

her 50,000,000 colonials, almost all
colored, for defense, and must there

that the French colored people will
not continue to give loyalty to

discrimination against colored people

HARDING TO GIVE
AUDIENCE TO LEAGUE
Lodge Arranges Meeting With Pres
ident for National Equal Rights
Delegation With Dyer Bill
Extra Session Petition
at Noon Nov. 4.
Boston, Mass., Oct. 31, 1922.To-
day Senator Henry Cabot Lodge tele
phoned to National Headquarters, of
the National Equal Rights League at
34 Cornhill, that in response to his
request, sent at the league's solicita
tion, he had received a telegram from
the President's secretary stating that
the President would grant an audi
ence to the league to present its pe
tition on the Dyer bill extra session
at noon of Saturday, November 4.
The league started the petition for
an extra session soon after congress
had adjourned without reaching con
sideration of the Dyer anti-lynching
bill, as a means of expediting, if not
actually saving, the bill which was
left next on the calendar to the
librarian loan bill.
Thousands of signatures have been
secured from over 15 different states.
One is from the President's home
town, Marion, Ohio, another is from
Tulsa, Okla., several from Georgia
The petition will be sent by a mes
senger from Boston who will conduct
the audience. The point sought will
be to get the President to specify the
Dyer bill in his call.
The race is asked to send such a
request to the President from Sunday
onindividually, through churches,
lodges and organizations, and from
all political meetings held Monday
night also to ask their senators and
congressmen to write the President.
LASTWORD TO COLORED
VOTERS ONJYER RILL
FROM J. W. JOHNSON
The National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People, 70
Fifth avenue, New York, today made
public a final pre-election statement
Dve bill throughthe the Hous
representatives and is fighting for
ored race. A bitter discussion is has never before been "possible!
raging as a result of this opposition,
and Deputy Diagne, high commis
sioner for the French colonial em- ing re-election who

demanding whether France i ring .,n
tended to use the colored troops for
her protection in times of national
danger and then discriminate against
them after the danger had been safe
ly weathered by their brave hearts
and unstinted sacrifices.
Deputy Diagne warns the French
people that such a policy could only
lead to disaster as the African was
not the person to give his loyalty to
any flag that did not return that loy
alty by full protection and absolute
equality of treatment in times a of
peace. The African, he said, has general of the United States who is

bitter opposition and insulting slurs
cf the Anglo-Saxon wor'd who saw
in her attitude of justness toward the
colored man a "love for niggers"
which the Anglo-Saxon world of
England and America resented.
In France colored and whites mix
freely, frequently intermarry and
any job is open to colored men with
perfect equality. This is, as M.
Diagne points out, due to the attitude
of the Frr
ment in the Senate,

their race and as a race. I refer to
the Dver anti-lynching bill which
they can use as an acid test on every
candidate who solicits their votes.
In this there is not and need be no
petty or partisan politics.- Colored
voters are simply undertaking to di
vide the men seeking office on the
basis of their stand in this matter of
federal action against the lyncher.
"The opportunity is the greatest
that has come to colored voters since
the civil rights bill, and is perhaps
even greater than the civil rights bill,
for in those days, colored people were
neither so numerous nor so well able
to act together as they are now.

"This defense the colored voters

In less than a week we will know
the fate of the proposed $5,000,000
school bond amendment.
In this district, at least, there does
not seem to be any concerted action
against the worthy project. The va
rious civic and other organizations
here and all over the city seem to be
a unit in favor of the proposition.
When one stops to figure the real
need for the additions and improve
ments to our present school system
as provided by the $5,000,000 plan, it
seems incredulous to believe that any
right thinking person would object to
this absolute necessity.
The figures have not been exag
gerated or padded when speakers in
favor of the measure have told the
people of the number of children who
must be content to go to school for
only a half day at a time just for
the want of adequate quarters.
Some of the buildings being used
at the present time for school pur
poses are veritable firetraps and the
educational department are living in
constant dread of fire breaking out
almost any day in an^ one of a num
ber of these old ramshackle build
ings that are now serving to house
the rising generation and taking a
toll of young lives that would leave
a stain on the name of St. Paul for
all time to come. "Too late" is a sad
verdict and every man and weman in
the city will agree that to pick up a
paper and read of a dozen or more
lives being sacrificed in one of these
obsolete firetraps would bring sor
row, shame and disgrace that would
never be forgotten,
In submitting the $5,000,000 prop
osition, the educational department
has made a careful and exhaustive
study of the needs cf the various
sections of the city and they prom
ise to spend the money where it is
needed and will do the most good.
The idea being to do away with the
congestion and provide adequate and
safe school buildings all over the city.
There have been many meetings in
th's commuritv in the past few
weeks and speakers have butlined the
department's plan to hundreds of
listeners and at everv meeting the
proposition has received hearty en
dorsement and manv citizens have
left the meetings and gone out and

The money was in ancient English
pieces. Jones did not know of what
value*. He called an expert from the
state banking department, who es

$48,000 in American money. Jones
had thought the gold worth about
$12,000. Jones was informed that

GOOD BUSINESS SENSE
Secretary of the Treasury Mellon
is clearly right in expressing the
opinion that stock dividends are not
income. Stock is merely a share in
the business. If a company has a
property worth a million dollars, rep
resented bv 10,000 shares of stock,
each share being worth $100, and the
stock be increased to 20,000 shares,
that does not add one dollar to the
value of the property or to the value
of any stockholder's interest. He
gets two shares worth $50 each in
the place of one share worth $100.
If you have an apple and cut it in
half, that does not give you two ap
ples. You have no added income. If
vou have a farm of 100 acres and
cut itxinto two fields of 50 acres each,
you have not added to your holdings.
The increase in the number of shares
of stock is exactly the same proposi
tion, and it ought not require any ar
gument whatever to make the fact
clear. Mr. Mellon has applied ordi
nary business sense to a legal prop-
