LEXINGTON KENTUCKY SATURDAY JANUARY 27 1900
Spirit ofthe Press.
Mississippi's new governor goes for
the lynchers with a vengaence and
suggests that the Legislature enact
laws whereby the co'unty in which a
a lynching takes place shall pay to the
family ot the victim a large sum of
money as indemnity. This will stop
the business; for the Mississippi
ier don't want to be taxed for killing
Negroes, Mobile (Ala.) Press.
If the Negro can manage to be a
friend to himself his future is secure
He must learn the value of time and
money. To waste either is equally
foolish. There are traits which we
must leave off. Mean, little, petty
jealousies cause much of our present
condition. Let us bo men of honor,
or get out of the way and let men oi
honor come by. Selma, (Ala ) Record.
R. C. O Benjuu.u, the able editor
ul the wide awahe Lexington Standard
defines the stars and stripes in
this country thus: "Stars are for the
whites and-s tripes are for the blacks."
If the blacks will only learn to oe independent,
they can stripe the whites
also with their ballots Urge them to
action, Brother Benjamin. Pioneer
Press, Martinsbnrg, W. Va.
The Negro who has not in him the
business qualifications to earn & living
is a dependent, a pauper, and is
as a citizen, no matter how
much useless information he may have
lying loose in his cranium. One
trouble with us as a race is that we
sre not enough interested in our standing
among other races. We are tio
easily satisfied and not very anxious 1
to get far away from the old landmark.
We dress well, we look well,
and talk well; but in far too many
cases that is all there is nothing behind
it. We need good stores and
business houses of. every description.
We must get money. Biloxi (Miss.)
The Negro who thinks he is "actin'
like de white f o'ks" and who refuses to
patronize Negro establishments, is a
fool. A white man patronizes his own
race first. Who uver. heard of a. white
woman talking about not allowing a
white dressmaker to sew for her, or a
white shopper refusing to buy at a
white store, or a white teacher refusing
to read a white newspaper P Nobody,
and nobody ever will. White
people have sense. They know blood
is thicker than water, and so knowing,
they act along this line. The Negro
does not need to talk so much of race
love; he needs to shut up and work,
and subscribe for his race paper. The
R. H. Fitzhugh, General Manager of
the Colored Orphan Industrial Home,
of Lexington Kentucky, and is well
known for his loug and ardent labors
in behalf of the race, argues at length
in the Lexington Standard that the
Negro of the South, except for the social
barrier and its natural effects, "is
already as free and unbounded as -any
man in the land. As an agriculturist
or skilled machanic" he says, "he has
not only an open, unobstructed field,
but his services are in such unavoidable
demand that, to a very great extent
he controls the scale of wages
under which he is employed." m He
also argues that "it is only the vicious
and idle of the race who get into
trouble." It must be admitted that
the South is the natural home of the
Those who urge him to scat-ter
over the various States of the
North and South overlook the fact
that his industrial opportunities are
almost entirely eliminated in these
far-away sections, exeept in a few isolated
instances With the superior
opportunities portrayed by Captain
Fitzhugh, there should be a bright
future for the Negro in the South.
Denver (Colo.) Statesman.
The Negro newspaper is the black-man's
only forum where an impartial
hearing is guaranteed. It is not a
luxury, but one of the most pressing
necessities of this age The Negro
who refnses to sustain an honest race
journal is blind to his best interests.
Colored American, Washington, D. C.
More than that. A Negro who refuses
to sustain an honest race journal
is more often than otherwise, not only
blind to his best interests, but so prejudiced
and chock full of cussednes
that, tsven if he sees the good in a
journal, he pretends that he does
not see it, and 1b never so happy as
when engaged in the nefarious work
of crippling the influence of tho paper
and speaking ill of the men; who muk'e
sacrifices that the race may ve this
most effective champion of the rights
and liberties of a long oppressed and
proscripted people The Progress.
A Negro preacher had just concluded
the ceremony which united an old
Negra in matriojoyjor .fiffturjfe
The silence which 'usually follows
an occasion of this kind was broken
by the preacher in hiaeflirt to relieve
the embarrassment of the attendants.
"It is usually the custom, " he ?aid
''for the preacher to kiss the bride,
brt this time we will omit."
The groom gave bis young wife a
healthy smack and turning to the
"Parson, it am usually de case fer
de groom to give his parson somethin'.
but dis time we'll omit " Aud he
walked away from the astonished
preacher with his bride on h'B arm.
They Saluted the FIa?.
A Negro color sergeant of the Forty-ninth
iDfautry gave some .. while
soldiers of the Forty-second a lesson
in respect for the flag, in Honolulu.
A large crowd of white soldiers stood
at Hobron'a corner to see the colored
regiment go by. They did not notice
the flag at all. The color sergeant
rushed up to the crowd.
"Are you American sold ice?" demanded
" 'Yss," they said.
"Then ealute this Hag and be.quick
In a jiffy all caps were off and the
salute was given. A white commissioned
officer was on the sidewalk. His
cap came off with and he showed
that he felt the justice of the rebuke.
Cincinnati, Jan. 25. At the Main
Street Colored Baptist Church, Covington,
Tuesday night, when Rev. Peter
Vinegar, of Lexington, who had been
invited to preach a special sermon,
staggered to the pulpit, a stout "mammy"
in a front seat exclaimed:
"Sit down, you ole fool. You's
Pastor Vinegar paused, clenched his
fists and roared:
If I am drunk I'm not" and he
used a vile epithet. "How dare yo
make such insinuations? Yo' ain't got
the sense of a rabbit, 'deed yo' ain't.
Drunk. I is a virtuous man, an' lives
with man own wife and brothers an'
sisters. There's powerful few in dis
heyar church which can say the same.
An dat ain't no lie."
Men and women arose indignantly
and a movement towards the pulpit
"Keep quiet." yelled the preacher, 'or
I will contaminate the entiah congregation."
The threat averted further trouble.
An attempt will be made to have Vinegar
dismissed from the ministry.
