warning to the colored population o
the United States against the Philip
pine colonization scheme should be
published in every colored people's pa
per in the country.
At the heart of the scheme there I.
meant no good for you, my dea
friends, and I warn you to look mnt
the project well before entering it.
I have been watching the underlyin
reasons for the war in the Philippin
slands and wondered who would nez
be called upon to offer up their live
to the greed and lust of financiers.
Those islands have been wont
them by the blood of our innocent
adventure-loving young men, solel
through the hardheartedness of tb
money kings for their own aigrandize
ment, and what good to them thlnk
you, would the islands be, with the
wealth of that vast partly submerged
region left untilled? None, and can
not ne, unless it be peopled by a sub
The natives of that country have
mostly gone down to death through
defence; therefore, more must be
supplied or owalt years for the few
rem aining ones to multiply.
Doubtless the picturing of those
partly tropical regions to you is and
will be very bright, by minds hired
for the purpose. They employ the
"wise as a serpent and as harmless t
a (love" attitude, men who have not
lived there in the capacity that you
will be called upon to experience and
who could not be hired so to do, are
therefore not honest, competent jtudg
es or that which they strive to inter
est you to take part in.
You surely have not forgotten the
misery your atncestors suffered when
birotight into civilization and subjected
to slavery, and that is nothing to what
awaits you over there. The conduct.
ore of this scheme seek to have you
andi care nothing for your good, for
they look upon the whole colored race
as only a ,"lot of cattle. Indeed they
laborers with that brand. To swell
their own bank accounts is their one
aim In life, and as money buys power
today, BO do they who deal in money.
Lives are nothing to them. You
my colored friends are a prolific, race,
as all races in their youth and .unwiu
donr are. You are also a hardy one
and easily submissive and happy.
These are your God-given endow,
ments; so use them in the upbuilding
of your own homes, right here in the
IUnited States . and do not for a me t
meni lbe caught by the glamorous tales

It an anchor till you learn. Though
LOse deluded souls who trick
pai are in a far worse state than
taurselves, does not make your case
-as important and direful. Though
hey be Judases does not lighten the
becessity for your learning the grand
bsson that Is in store for you, .tnd
irophecy that tnat lesson will come
ta teach you self-establishment. You
ts a race are not self-centered; you
lack atability, backbone, as the Yan
kt ys term it. who are today thei t
.ýt lot of people on the face of the
I tell you again, and I shall keep
on telling you that you are a grand
race; one pregnant of more good than
is at the present dreamed of, and you
must educate! educate!!!
If you go to the Philippines, go not
a ignorance, but in wisdom. Watch
chat I tell you-cultured negroes will
g t go over there.
That is not the object! The object
5, to tranfer brawn not brain; trans
plant servants, not masters.
There is naught to hinder negroes
colonizing right where they are and
become separate in society, if the ob
ject is separation.
Wisdom will not be needed over
there until the wealth of the opuntry
has been thoroughly and satisfactorily
manipulated for a few.
Were the Boers allowed to remain
In peace? No! money ousted them.
What was the wisdom that they failed
to attain and use that they must be
taught to serve a lessoen? and have
they learned it yet? I fear not.
Progress must travel onward. Prog
ress may not be retarded by a rope,
like as with such the Indians were
known to try to stop a western-bound
train a few years ago.
Natural laws may not be set aside.
If you trim a tree in one place it
shoots out in another more abundant
ly. Cut off its top and it springs up'
from the root in many places, thus'
multiplying its forces against future
assault. Just so with the human tree
and in addition to the physical body
the Auman tree must use his mental
faculties and after that his spiritual
mind. In order to develope onything
it must be put to its best use. You
better use all three faculties in civili
zation than in a desert. But yott must
hurry up! yTou are not developing
fast enough. These are quick times.
Omnipitenie will allow your removal
to a place and and state where you
will be compelled to bring forth more
abtundantly; not after the white man's
model, however, btit after the black
man's. Your own original forces
must he developed. You are grandly

Alt this reasoning, my dears, in be

good iha~ may come to you after many
years of suffering wit, not excuse nor
forgive the muanipulators of the cause
of it. Their intention remains the
same, that is. for our own benefit. Of
course, in time good will come out of
it as it caine out of your enslavement.
