We trust our numerous readers
fill not fail to recognise the Broad
this veek, in its new and en-
krged dress. It is a source of
leasure to the editor to be able to
ire our readers the benefit of our
jwth and prosperity. When we
at started this little paper on the
ipestuous sea of journalism, we
it in our mind to enlarge soon
ter, but the closs times, and po
ical disappointments delayed the
atter until nor. Six months ago
e initial number of the Broad Ax
ide its appearance in this city.
that time we had neither a sub-
ription list, or enough advertisers
pay for the first edition. As is
known, the Broad Ax was
rted at first as a thorough Dem-
ratic journal, with particular ef-
io reach a large number of
llored voters, whom we believed
auld listen to the voice of reason
a direct appeal was made to them.
this we have not been disap
pointed, as shown by the large num
ter of enthusiastic readers and sup-
sorters of the Broad Ax among the
slored race in this city. But the
Jroad Ax was not designed for the
colored people alone. We have
pared neither pains nor expense to
lake our little paper a welcome
isitor to the home of the Demo
cratic voter, eiviuff him a live dis
cussion of the questions now before
the public mind, and endeavoring
to lead rather than follow in such
reforms as tend to make our city
and the great State of Utah pros
perous and happy. The result has
been that the Broad Ax has become
a favorite with all classes, and is
relcomed to the homes of hundreds
all over the State. Our subscrip
tion list has outgrown our most
sanguine hopes, and our advertiz
ing patrons show for themselves to
be of the very best class, and con
stantly increasing. Our paper now
goes into the best homes in the
State, and is read and admired by
the brainiest men and women of the

put being greater than that of any
previous year in the history of the
South. Cotton mill building also
increased beyond any previous year,
being the enormous increase of
about 1,000,000 spindles. And
their productions in this line were
for the first time, during last year,
freely and completely admitted by
the foremost textile establishments
of the world.
The tide of emigration for the
past year has swelled to a greater
magnitude than ever before; and in
the next few years, population will
grow in the South as it did in the
great Northwest a few years ago.
A better feeling has arisen between
the people of the South and those
of the North, thus insuring more
social and commercial intercourse
between the two sections. Taken
all together, the prospects of the
Southern states are very bright in
deed; and we predict that the year
1896 will surpass all others in ad
vancement and prosperity.
THE SOUTH IN THE LEAD.
The year 1895, will be noted for
one of quiet business prosperity
and sound progress all over the
South. It was a year free from
speculative activity, and & year in
which the boom business was "ab

upon which a solid growth k cer

THE LITTLB DICTATOR
(Continued from February 15th.)
On September the 7th, 1895,
while the writer was walking along
Main street we met the Little Dic
tator, and he immediately ordered
us to halt and remove our hat
while in his presence. After we
had complied to his command he
began in an arrogant and haughty
manner by saying, "I am a tax
payer, and I live in the fifteenth
ward. I own a piano, and there is
not a man in Salt Lake that is su
perior to me, physically, mentally
or intellectually. I know more
than all the rest of the people of
Utah, and I dine sumptuously every
day. I can blow hot and cold at
the same time. For example, dur
ing the campaign of 1894, when
Hardy ran for sheriff, I pulled the
wool over the eyes of all my col
ored brethren by making them all
believe that I had a gret t dislike
and aversion for all the members of
the Democratic party, and I told
them that any colored man that
voted the Democratic ticket, or
that would take Democratic money
ought to be hurled headlong into
the lowest depths of an everlasting
hell. And after I had made them
all believe that I hated and detested
the Democratic party, with all the
intensity of my being. Now when
I had deceived all of my colored
brethren, for you know they are all
like a lot of blind bats, especially
if you talk to them about voting
the Democratic ticket. You know
they would rather vote for the devil
and all of his angels, providing they
all belonged to the g. o. p.
"Well, I mast tell you all about
the sharp trick which I played on
one of the Democratic candidates
daring the election of 1894. I
went to Mr. B., for his name be
gins with B., and he is a Jew, and
yoa know X hate the Jews, espec
ially if they belong to the Demo
cratic party I aaade Mr. B. be
lieve that he was very popular with
the colored people of this city, and
I palled hk leg and aaade hiaa
oofigh up $35. That was a very
sliok trick. Ireceivedsaoreraoaey

did froem all the RepafcEcans pt
together. Irwaatyo toresaeaber

from the hand of any Democratic
candidate, and furthermore, every
colored man, woman and child in
Salt Lake worships me, and they all
look upon me as being a little
He was very long winded on thk
occasion, and we stood for a very
long-time on one foot and with our
hat off. And when he finally
finished his harangue, he frowned
upon us and then he strutted off
with a lofty and proud gait. We
were almost struck dumb with
amazement at the effrontery and
the shameless and insolent manner
of the Little Dictator.
On the 10th of September we met
the Little Dictator on Second
South, and he immediately ordered
us to stop, which we did. Then he
bean by saying that the mem
bers of the A. Lincoln colored Re-
puuuuiu uuu mauB a grann-unf
take when they met and endorsed
Judge R. B. Johnson to represent
our race in the Legislature. Now
I honestly believe that Judge John
son k better qualified in every re
spect to represent our race in the
Legislature than any other member
in Utah, but it was impossible for
the Judge to receive the nomina
tion. Now 1 want to say right
here, that I am a member of the
A. Lincoln club, and if the club
would have permitted me to do the
directing, I would have gone to the
convention and delivered an elo
quent and impressive speech, and I
know the gentleman whom I would
have nominated would have received
the nomination, but I will tell you
all about my candidate the next
cime I see you. 1 now will allow
you to withdraw from my presence.

engaging ;n public works; this
species of labor not only f nrnkhing
a means of subsistence to the labor
ing men, but improves and beauti
fies the city, and adds substantial
wealth to every piece of property in
the corporate limits. Can we not
have an extension of sidewalks,
paving or macadam on State street,
and the streets lead in e to the
depots? The boulevard and parks
should receive more attention, and
a new city jail should be erected at
ouce. Let us get a move on our
selves for the year 1896.
Thk reported discovery of the
North Pole is like the pledges of
the present Republican Congress,
viz.: Amount to nothing of value
to the country. We doubt if there
k a North Pole, and we also doubt
the intention of the g. o. p. to do
anything to help the people; the
ony pole they care for, is one long
enough to knock the golden apples
into the pockets of the East. But
' there will be a poll of votes this
fall whTcLjill make these gold
bug Congressmen' -w Jhey were
in the polar regions for "a change.
When the people get started on the
rigut track they will give these fel
lows "hot stuff."

THE REPUBLIC OF CUBA.
Judqino from the tone and ex
pressions of the American Con
gress, it will not be many more
days until the United States will
officially recognize the Cuban revo
lutionists as a belligerent power.
Senator Vest, of Missouri, thrilled
the hearts of all true lovers of lib
erty by his speech in the Senate.
Here is a gallant iand of men,
struggling to break away from a
detested tyranny, and establish that
freedom and liberty' of which we
are so proud, and which we guard
with such zealous care, yet we sit
idly by, and not so much as raise
one of our fingers to aid and en
courage these patriots in their war
fare for human rights. Cuba is
one of our nearest neighbors, and
she needs our sympathy and help.
It is a shame that this government
acts with such indifference, in this
the hour of peril. Let us at once
recognize her independence, and
we will have made an everlasting
friend of the infant repuhlic, from
which we will reap untold advan
tages in thef uture.
