ALL HAH.! OUR CONQUERING:
By M. A. Majors.
WILL SATTi FOR LONDON.

Walter T A. M. E. Zion Church, is nrc-

Jack Johnson is out, and to tell the
truth he should never have been in.
Now that he has served as a model
prisoner it remains to be seen now if
he win act as a model citizen. But
of a truth there are many fellows in
high places by the side of whom Jack
is a Sunday School scholar, and who
according to the law ought to be doing
time, but they have been in the immun
ity bath so long they have turned white.
The great crime Jack committed was
to knock the crown off Jim Jeffries'
head. Stealing a lot of old worn out
hens of course had to supply public sen
timent some irreverent excuse for im
prisonment. Now at the age of forty
odd he still has- a robust anatomy with
hardly a dent made upon his physical
escutcheon he may yet sustain a prowess
that may become the marvel of the age.
He is a great feUow after all, and
here and there can be found men who
wiU speak eloquent words in praise of
his courage. He Is not an object of any
body's pity. 'He has stood the test, and
shown himself a man with aU of the
odds of white man hatred concentrated
against him. His eonduet in the U. S.
prison ought to speak louder than words
in his behalf. Of course a lot of fools
will feel revenged because of his suffer
ing. We cannot see where anybody can
be happy over the misfortune of a man
that has risen to greatness. One thing
is sure they cannot take away his honors
in ring history. Always they wUl have
to nse his great name in the fighting
game wherever language is interpreted
as the sentiment of the human breast.
The Broad Ax wishes his after mo
ments jeweled with the joys of anoble
life and. if he does -not turn preacher,
study law, or go into the undertaking
business it appears he has done enough
to make him honored and respected by
his race. Success to yotv Jack, and may
you have luek in aU the big things you
contemplate for the future.
Your suffering was because of your
black skin. You whipped the white
man's hope. That was your undoing and
we are proud of you.

They arrested Jack Johnson, caused
him to put up a cash bond of several
thousand dollars, this money waa for
feited. Jack went to Europe, and was
away from the United States several
years, and even, though he was World
Champion of pugilism, having whipped
all of the big men, both white and
colored, of that period.
The Mann Aet caused Jack to be in
dicted, as he was prosecuted for pay
ing Ben Schreider's fare from Pitts
burg to Chicago, afterwards giving her
about $12,000 to go to housekeeping.
When Jack returned to the laud of his
birth from Mexico he voluntarily gave
himself up by meeting the United States
officials at the dividing line to be
brought to Chicago After several
months he received sentence to the
Leavenworth Prison, where he has '
served out his term of one year.
Take the Stillmnn case, the yacht
whieh he paid $300,000 for and let
Florence Leeds of The Follies christen.
The $250,000 villa in Florida, the place
StiUman provided for the Leeds woman,
think this all over and see if you can
not make out of this a ease of violating
the Mann Act.
You have not heard anything said
about StiUman taking a woman from
one state into another state for illicit
relations although it is no secret that
he has lived with the actress during
three years aU over tho Atlantic coast.
