"The White Man's Co';^lt^y.,,
Under the above caption, the State
says "the truth about the horror at
Coatsfille and ;its -signi; cance are
beginning to come out. Coatsville
is In Chester County, Pennsylvania,
the seat of a great iron industry, and
I recently the owners of the plants
have introduced negro labor into
'them, with the exciation of a com
bined race and industral prejudice as
the result. Therein lies the.differ
ence between the race prejudice of
the North an of the Pacific coast and
that of the South.
The Northern white, man has the
same radical objections to association
with the negro that the Southerner
has, 'but it is intensified, and in
flamed when the negro with his lower
standard of living and willingness to
accept a cheaper w?ge becomes his
competitor In the iSouth the ad
mission of negroes to thoi-e kinds of
labor now exclusively controlled by
white men and women- would be met
with the same angry and violent op
position which the iron workers of
Coatsville and the miners of Spring
field, 111., have displayed toward
them." The State goes on to say
that "Northern philanthropists and
newspaper and magazine editors up
braid the South continually about its
treatment of the negroes, they fly in
to spasms of invective about Sou
thern "peonage," but they give the
negro no chance in the North.
Even the negro ccher and hotel
waiter are not welcome??., and the
najxo is rigorously excluded from
most of the menial occupations which
he is expected to enter in the South
as a matter of course. In spite of
the magazine writers and the high
preachers, the North allows its mas
ses of white laborers to meet the ne
groes with brickbats, staves, hemp
and fire at the border line. "If
the exodus of negroes to the North
shall increase, Coatsville i;nd Spring
field lynchings will multiply. Po
litically, the South claims to be a
white man's country, and it makes
the caim good. The North, with a
the claim good. The North, with-a
fanflare of trumpets, extends to its
sprinkling of negroes bare and ster
ile political rights, but in the earning
of a livelihood the North is in fact a
white man's country. It is the ne
groe's. starvation country. The ed
ucated and philanthropic North may
write itself blind and preach itself
hoarse, but it can not control or pun

Veto of the Woof Bill.
In vetoing the wool bill President
Taft? is inconsistent and he will find
it hard to justify his action in doing
30 before the people, when he goes
before them asking endorsement of
his administration ,by a reelection.
The President says there should be
no revision of the tariff until the tar
iff commission makes its report. Yet
immediately after his election, over
two years ago, he called Congress
into extra session to revise the tariff
without any report or advice from a
tariff commission. The revision of
the tariff made at that extra session,
the President accepted and endorsed
as being the "best tariff law ever
enacted," all except the wool sched
ule, which defect the bill which he
vetoes tries to remedy, and which
schedule he admitted to be indefensi
Now when the Democrats under
take to remedy the same, wool sched
ule that he said was "indefensible,"
President Taft refuses to let them
do so by vetoing the bill they passed
for that purpose. It is certain that if
President Taft knew two years ago
that the wool bill .passed at that time
was "indefensible," he does not need
to be told now by a tariff commis
sion that its revision is desirable.
The veto of the wool bill reveals the
President in his true cc'irs as an ar
dent defender and abettor of the tar
iff barons and the so-caHed "business
interests" in their hold-up of the peo
ple by means of the tariff laws.
He was perfectly willing to put frhe
products of the farm on the free list,
because the farmers tro. very con
servative and slow to resentment. Be
sides, they contribute no campaign
funds. But when it comes to the
"Farmers Free List .bill" which Is
necessary to round our the equities
of reciprocity, the President alligns
himself with the high tariff barons
and so-called business interests, and
denies the farmers this measure by
vetoing it. The tariff barons and
the so-called business -iterests puts
up the campaign fumis to corrupt
the voters, and President Taft could
not afford to offend them, so he ve
toes all measures that might inter
fere with their continued robbery
of the people.
The action of President Taft will
not surprise any one who is familiar
with his past record. He has always
been on the side of the plunderers of
the people and will be to the end. It
remains to be seen if he can foci the
people again into reelrct.ing him to
the high office he holds solely for the
benefit of the high tariff barons and
the so-called business interests. We
do not believe he can.
Keep the Record Straight
The war stories that are being pub
lished by some of the daily newspa
pers are greatly biased in favor of
the Northern side, and it is a little
strange that Southern newspapers
would help in circulating such one
sided tales. Take the battle of Wil
son's creek in Missouri, which was
published a few days ago. The sto
ry made out that Gen Lyon, who was
killed in the action, fought the bat
tle with ouly five thousand poorly
equipped soldiers, while the Confed
erates had an army reported to be
twenty thousand, anci with another
army of twelve thousand soldiers a
short distance away.
Gen McCullough, who commanded
the Confederates, in his official re
port says his "effective force was 5,
300 infrantry, 15 pieces of artillery
and 6,900 horsemen ,?.rmed with ri
fles, fl/lnt-lfockj Jmuskets and shot
guns There were other horsemen
with the army entirely unarmed, and
instead of being a help were con
tinually in the way. When the time

want of cartridge boxes that my am
munition would be ruined, I ordered

BLESSED ARE THE PERSECUTED
Jsremiah 37?Aug. 20
"Blessed are ye when men ?hall revile yon and
persecute you and shall say all manner of evil
against you falsely for ily sake."?'Aatthcw
ERSECUTION Implies that the
person or thing persecuted
possessed some qualities or
powers that arc ft^ired. When
the persecution is for religion it proves
that the persecutor realizes his own
weakness to meet the argument in 11
more rational way.
Today's study draws our attention to
the persecutions endured by one of the
Lord's faithful Trophets. He was a
patriot in the
highest sense of
the word In that
he looked for the
highest good for
his nation along
the lines of Di
vine wisdom. His

stood by the king and his counsellors.
They did not like him becnuse he told
the truth, fearlessly?they preferred
prophets who would tell them of their
own wisdom, greatness and the suc
cess of their policies.
At the time of this study Zedekiab
was on the throne. He was a vassal
to Nebuchadnezzar, king of the Chal
deans, whose seat of empire was ti
the north. Hoping for assistance from
Egypt on the south, Judah revolted,
contrary to the warning of the Lord
through Jeremiah. The Chaldeans laid
siege, a-nd the Egyptian army started
for their dellverrnee.
Yet Jeremtah persisted In declnrini
as at first that Lie end of the kingdom
was near, that they would be swallow
ed up in Babylon.
Faithful Jeremiah Persecuted
When the Chaldean army had with
drawn from the siege, Jeremiah con
cluded to cast his lot with some of the
nation living outside the city walls?
in the portion of the tribe of Benja
min. B Attempting to do this he was
arrested on the charge of disloyalty?
that he had given himself over to co
work with the Chaldeans against the
Interests of his own land. Although
he denied the charge he was put into
Jerusalem .was honeycombed with
underground cisterns and vaults, arch
ed overhead, and these were called
"cabins." They were designed to be
reservoirs for wnrer in time of drought
or of siege. The bottoms of tbesf
"cabins," or cisterns, after the re
moval of the water, were frequently
deep with mud and slime. The next
chapter tells us of the terrible condi
tion of the dungeon into which Jere
miah was put. We read, "They let
down Jeremiah with cords, and In thp
dungeon there was no water but mire;
so Jeremiah sunk in the mire." When
finally they drew him out they took
"old cast off clouts and rotten rag:
and let them down by cords into the
dungeon to Jeremiah," who put them
under his arms and was drawn up by
the cords. In this dungeon the Proph
et remained "many days."
