As wo get nearer to election
day the odds on Roosevelt be

a question of time when each

see why the colored men don't
quit, as in almost every instant
they are caught and sent to the

us that the little profit that they
make in handling this unlawful

An Unfair Deal.
The colored school building
that was sold was obtained by
tho colored children loosing one
whole year in school in order to
get the house. Tho lot, we are
informed, wa. given by an old
colored man bofore there was
any such thing as deeded prop
erty. We are very much in need
of a school building in the third
ward. The schools are naw ov
er crowded and a number of
children will have to remain at
home for want of room, and it
seems to us that the school
boatd should have moved the
old building to some other locali
ty or to some lot in the third
ward thereby giving the chil
dren in that ward an opportuni
ty to attend school.
The present school for colored
youth is located in the fourth
ward, and many of those who
live in the third ward small
children are compelled to walk
for a mile and a half to school,
board , This is a wrong that
should be remedied by tho school
board. We think it is an outrage
upon common decency to dis
pose of this school property whei
it is needeb by the children. Ah
lovers of justice and richt, n
matter what their coler may be
can see the injustice of having
only one colored school in the
town, aud that located in the ex
treme north eng when there are
hundreds of colored families liv
ing in the third ward, and who
pay their taxes and are entitled
to the benefit of the school fund.
