The days when parents used the ex
pression tcj their children: "Come up
as I cornei," have long since passed
and we truist the even rare expression,
"If you dpn't like my way of treat
ing you, it takes but one step to put
you off mjy place on the other fel
low's." went with it. This is no time
for such destructive teaching now.

"Talks fpr WThite People" would ac
complish i^iore good than "Talks for
Colored People" in some of our daily
papers. Cplored people have been
talked to jlong enough. They need
some one hot to teach them lo be sub
jective to jmistreatment, but some one
to talk to those who give the mis
treatment,; since the laws will not pro
tect themj along with other people.
* * *
Many of the best people in Colum
bia have expressed themselves as be
ing disgusted with some of the recent
"Talks fcf Colored People" appearing
in a certain local daily paper. We are
friendly toward the writer of these
"talks," but, like many others, some
of these Stalks" should not be talked.
He would; do his race a great favor to
write some "talks" to "White People"
and if the publishers will not publish
them cut them all out.
* * *
We cannot recall when there were
such daysj that if a man spit in a Ne
gro's fac?, he was not justified in
showing ih some way that he was not
being humanly treated. Not even in(
the days >of slavery. Yet there is a
Negro here and there who, because
he knows-such is pleasing to a certain
class, will teach such at the rate of
so much jper teaching when paid by
said class. Such an expense is too
great upoji the race.

From what little we can hear and
the glad jfacial expressions of those
who are interested and are in direct
touch with political affairs in Wash
ington, good news, yes, real good
news, will] soon be forthcoming from
that great; city. That is to those of
the old Republican Party, but. very
sad news j indeed to the followers of
Lillywhitisjm or the still newer Re

We are Reproducing an article from
The State I this week which contains
some very! good "talk" to our white
friends. Tjie speakers were, as you1
mil note, Mrs. W. A. Newell of States
ele, N. C, and Rev/ J. C. Jtoper.
These are the kinds of "talks" that
are going to prove most helpful, and
they are the kind of talks that should
be. talked more to white people.
It is beyond telling what some peo
ple will do for the promise of a "po
litical plum." Old man Tom Miller
and all of his kind ought to go off in
some secluded place and die. The
race would fare much better during
this crucial period. But we are told
that he is to die very soon.
In keeping with- his experience of
several years as Secretary of the State
Sunday School and B. Y. P. U. Conven
tion and an old printer, Prof. S. L.
Finley has produced for the above
named convention a minute that we
are sure will meet the approval of the
entire convention and at a very mod
erate price. We have a copy on our
desk and have "o. k.'ed" it. The job
did not cost the convention a cent
more than was absolutely necessary,
which shows that Prof. Finley is the
right man for the position which he
* * *
We gladly welcome The Black Dis
patch of Oklahoma City to our ex
change list. It's a highly edited, 8-j
page paper, full of good and whole
some news for our people. Of course,
for Columbia and many other South
jern cities, excepting Atlanta, Ga., and
a few others, such news and editorials
as it carries are too wholesome for
certain people, even some of our own
people writing for certain papers,
would claim that sucb news would
make them "shudder." But not until
our people, and other people, can stand
sound, racial doctrine, will our people
see the light and follow the lead of
the guiding star.
No paper should be antagonistic be
yond reason, nor should any plead for
social equality, nor teach its people
to be disrespectful, but the paper that
fails to set forth the facts that its
people need and according to law,
should have a square deal under the
laws that are made to (or so said to)
govern all the people; a right to ex
ercise citizenship at the poles; a fair
chance for commercial prosperity and
happiness; is a paper that is more of
a liability to any race than an asset,
and a paper that that race can well
afford to get along without.
No paper should declare its purpose
as being for the advancement of its
race unless it contends for and en
A NEW INSURANCE CO.
There is being organized in this
city a new insurance company. The
prime promoter of the new company
is Mr. G. C. Forrest. Mr. Forrest is
an old insurance man and is quite
confident that as general manager he
will put the new company over.
The Indicator wishes for Mr. For-;
rest and the. others associated with
him unbounded success.
