THE CHEAP NEGRO
" By Dr. H. A. Majcrt
Once in a great while one meets
here and there some fellow who "you'd
think was a real man when if the
truth was known there is nothing but
r an empty hulk passing himself off as
merely an excuse, instead of the real
tpxality. The old time Negro who
.' used to bow before white folks, and
use a contemptuous grin and easy
grace to emphasize his inferiority has
given place to the young up-to-date

bVDr 1L A. Majors
If life is. worth living it is1 worth
lovmg. Who does not love someone?
Or who is not loved by some oner
Who Is'it that is'not Ipved? Ox"who
is. it that" does not want to beloved?
These: are questions that are quite as
important as food,, raiment, and the
rest of it. "v.
There are people in the world that
take but little-stock in what thejrferm
arm frivol ous matter. The man orJ
woman who at some stage in their
lives "never-felt the. thrill of affection
in their hearts, is dying a living death.
A baby's cry, a woman's tears, a
mother's anxiety, a" father's hopes, a
race's bulwark are all wrapped up in
this one little word "Love." Yea,
very much more than the greatest ar
tist'ean picture, vastly more than the
sharpest intellect can imagine. The
ereat world itself would become stag
nant, nature would grow sick, life
would be bulled, to affliction, and
everything we have to hope for would
degenerate to chaos.
Love brings the tint of the rose to
the maiden's cheek. It brings to the
mind and heart of the youth a spirit St
achievement It fires the soul of the
human race to look up, and forward.
It is the one thing in the world that
the world would indeed be very poor

veritably insignificant" by the side of
We are a -very unfortunate race,
and we stand condemned it seems by
our own undesirables, as well as by
the lower strata of the white race.
It is becoming quite the custom to
hear people say they despise certain
corners along State street, and they
ascribe as their reason the unfair
position men take of commenting in
ugly fashion, and showing certain
unwelcome tendencies to carry on
levity that is not inviting. -Of course
they have to stand on the corners as
goodfdlows, meeting their gentlemen
friends, while the ladies are waiting
for the cross line cars.
We are not to discredit the man
ners of the old uncle Toms, even if
we must pass" up their humble con
duct The spirit of the times call for
men with heads erect, shoulders
straight, -giving the chin its rightful
poise, but we must not leave out of
the equation the good manners of
gentlemen. There are some good
qualities in these old people who
stood so many years as our first line
of defense. They have come up
through great trials and tribulations,
and they are well qualified on many
good points it, would be well for us
to use all through life. We never see
them without searching the richest
corner of our hearts for some kind of
admiration, knowing full well their
suffering ages, and the fury they have
had to face to live.

NEW YORK LEADER URGES
RACE TO SECURE FIREARMS.
New York Negroes in New York
were urged to arm by Herbert H.
Harrison, president of the Liberal
League of Negro Americans, at a
meeting here to ask for contributions
to a fund to relieve the suffering
caused to the Negroes of Tulsa. He
denied that the Negroes of Tulsa
were in any way responsible for the
rioting, and charged that the police
and troops took sides with the whites
until restrained by the authorities.
"It is not only these Negroes, but
those everywhere in the country, of
whom we are thinking," Harrison
said in asking for funds. "I am not
making any predictions, but I should
not be suprised if we saw three splen
did race riots by next September.
There may. not be any in New York,
but I advise you to be ready to de
fend yourselves. I notice that the
state government has removed some
of its restrictions upon owning fire
arms, and one form of life insurance
for your wives and children might be
the possession of some of these handy
implements. And it is absolutely nec
essary for your protection to join the
Liberal league, which is carrying on
a wide campaign for the interests of
our race. '
Harrison branded as "a lie," reports
that firing by Negroes started the dis
turbance at Tulsa, and said that a
group of fifty merely went to patrol
the jail when rumors of intended vio
lence to a Negro prisoner reached
