NOW LET WAR BE WAGED
AGAINST CLUBS AND GAMBLING
DENS WHERE NEGRO YOUTHS
ARE HURLED TO DE
STRUCTION. The republican Judges have been
elected . to every bench, except the
criminal bench. .What will they do
to perpetuate their claims In the coun
ty and city. In this community are
some negro Institutions that are hell
holes and the most damnable places
for the downfall of young boys ami
girls. There is only one club at this
writing that is exempted from this
campaign and that is the Waiters Cat
ering Association at 1223 Baltimore
a place for the gathering, of all the
waiters and railroad porters who
wish for a place to stay while they
are waiting for hours of watch to be
gin. Now the rest of the places the
Son intends with its thousands of
supporters both black and white to
carry on an uncompromising and un
flinching campaign against them.
Like Frederick Douglas, the great ne
gro torch-bearer who cried out: "Is
God Dead?" Will the living get Jus
tice? Will the negroes rise up and
smite their greatest evil dead? Will
the negro preachers arouse themselves
and organize a committee to wait on
the republican Judges and have them
with all the power at the command of
the white man to clone these p'ace? !
Tho preacher who hesitates In this
call from God, shall go down on rec
ord in tho Rising Son before its many
readers as weaklings. This paper
shajl not cease its writings until our
greatest race menace has been smitten
dead. Every Judge in county and city
takes this paper. Let them be moved
ly God to do their duty by tho negro
race. Just to think of the mothers
broken hearted, thinking of the mis
deeds and wild career- of their sons
and daughters. Dou't you hear that
song, "Oh, where is my wandering boy
to-night. Oh, where is my boy to-night.
Oh! Stop and think of tho many old
mothers tottering to their graves by
the grief of the strong Influences thut
carry their children to their graves by
a premature death. Oh! Listen to
the voice of Jesus calling on the ne
groes to get right. Will the noble
men of the Negro Race rise up and
assert themselves. Lay on MacDuff!
Lay on! Come forth out of stygian
darkness! Ict there be light! The
great ship of Destiny in which the ne
gro is riding, lot there be a strong
pilot at the helm. Iet the powers to
be among the white people come to
our assistance. Let Judges Bruinback,
McCune, Patterson, Goodrich, Parks,
and our own noble I. B. Klmhrell
come to our rescue. Let t.he negroes
get a petition and have every Judge
and white man of Influence sign to
close these clubs. Oh! Let God move
us to better our race.

"A Small Insight Into the Condition
of the Negro Since the Death of
At the death of Wm. McKlnley Ne
groes hung their heads and went thru
the- stieets saying that we would not
get auother president to fill his place
hi regards to his attitude toward the
Negro. But as this world goes hust
ling on great men from the theater
of life, equally as great men arise to
take their place.
Tramping In tho footsteps of Win.
McKlnley came Theodore Roosevelt
with his splendid principles of man
hood and his btoad expansive view
of the Negro and his trials. No man
is perfect, for if they were there
would be no use in the making.
Under President Roosevelt such ne
groes were appointed to offices as
follows: Charles W. Anderson, of
New York, as collector; Lewis, as
assisting United States district At
torney of Boston; Crum, of Charles
ton; W. T. Vernon, as United States
Registrar of Treasury; Dr. Furnish as
resident minister to Huytl, and a
greater number of minor positions
were given to the Negroes, which all
point to the fact thai progress Is be
ing made Instead of retrogression.
Slnco that time also a great number
of lynrhlngs have occurred. A Ne
gro was lynched in Delaware, one in
Srplngfleld, Ohio, several In Spring,
field, Mo., three' or four in the west
ern states, a great number in tho
south, including the general mas.
sacre In Atlanta, Ga., and yet the Ne
gro Is keeping triumphantly to tho
front. Whatever may come the Ne
groes destiny In this country has
been carved out by the Almighty
Notwithstanding the Vardarmans
and Tlllraans and Morgans, and Da
vlses and Carmacks, the Negro con
tinues to keep in the limelight of
history. Just recently our own sup
posed beloved Roosevelt slapped us
In the face with a disgraceful dismis
sing of the colored troops. All this
to the non-seeing Negro tends to dis
courage his efforts, but to the Ne
groes who are destined to become
leaders It only makes his courage clear
er to follow and puts bis obstacles
directly in front of his eye. The
days of the John Browns are over.
No more shall you see the Wm.
Lloyd Garrisons, Charles Sumners,
the Wendell Phillips, Lovejoys and
Abraham IJncolns. These are days
of a new century.
The leaders of the Negroes must
come from within their own ranks.
He must rise up as it were and force
his own leaders to carry him to the
promised lands. Ethlopa shall spread
her wings, Potentates shall come out
of Egypt, and the world shall take
on a new color. Yes, the leaders
must come from our own ranks. A

Our present leaders arose during the
Infant period of the Negro. At a
time when all was well. - At a time
when the war was over, and while
men sought to aid us. From whence
must come our leaders now? From
tlie rank of the negro. From the
very nucleus of the rare. Well may
we say since McKinley's death tha
Negro has passed thrn an evolution.
Forty years from the Civil war the
Negro has created his own founda

undertakings. Five years from the
death of McKlnley the Negro has be

FEEDING AND SELLING MULES.
How They Should Be Dealt With to
Get the Best Results.
The southerner requires fat mules,
the fatter the better. Flesh catches
the planter's eye. Sleek-coated ani
mals are also In demand. In size, tho
cotton mule ranges from the 1 1 hand
donkey to the Ki t hand farm mule.
Mare mules are given the preference
In the south, but north, east or west
this Is not so. The wise reciter will
keep these facts In lew when buying
voung or work mules. The rough.
leggy animal should be avoided. Such
are mean feeders nnd seldom fallen.
This Is also true of colls. It Is possi
ble, says Orange Judd Farmer, to tell
with reasonable certainly which colls
will feed out well and which will not.
The colt that keeps nearly fat on ordi
nal. v feed and with ordinary care can
be depended, on. while the one that Is
Blunted, 'rough and thin Is a doubtful
feeder. Some of our feeders raise
their own stock mules, buying rolls
ami yearlings, then pasturing or feed
ing them very much as raule are led
Feeding usually begins In early fall
and continues until Hie end el the
year. Many carloads of tw year-old
mules go south
The feeding Is best done In sheds
equipped for that , purpose. In most
seel Ions, at least live kinds of feed
can be had. Torn Is the principal fat -tening
element, bill bran and shelled
oats act as a loosening agent ami pro.
luce a good coat. Such feeds should
he given In the proportion or one pan
bran or oats to three or four parts
corn. Soy beans are a promising mule
feed, being' the equal of linseed meal.
In rearing and fattening les. the
shearing should be attended to often.
The mane falls over badly when al
lowed to get too long, anil it Is prac
tically tmpixsllile lo make a Cisul trim

In the State.
Work as many as possible, it only
a time or two. Many consider a mule
broken that has had only one or two
lessons In the wagon or plow.' Mules
should be kept, during the fattening
period, confined to the shed. Good
bedding is very essential to producing
a line finish. The above Is written
with special reference to cotton mule,
but applies equally well to oiher de
mands. Most all the cotton mules
from Kentucky are sold through the
Atlantic gateway. The market opens
in the late fall or early winter and
closes In early spring. .
