Of the Recent Excitement at Browns
Mr. Editor: . .....
One full grown wolf will stampede
10,000 sheep, while if the same herd
should have come in contact with the
wolf while it was in its infancy they
would have disdainfully trampled it
under their feet.
Such seems to have been the situa
tion at Brownsville, Texas, during the
recent excitement, which resulted in
the killing of ono white man, and the
wounding of another which was sup
posed to hive been done by- some un
known member of the 25th infantry,
stationed at Fort Brown, Texas.
I have before me clippings of the
San Antonio Daily Express, from the
loth to the 20th of August, inclusive,
all of which contain appeals from the
citizens of Brownsville, to everybody,
fiom the president of the United
States to the town "cop," saying: "Our
women and children are terrorized,
and our men in constant alarm and
fearfulness; please remove Negro
troops and replace them by white
troops; send state troops; do some
thing right away, for wre are scared to
death," or words to that effect.
Now, Mr. Editor, no one not a true
hearted American colored soldier can
realize tho situation of affairs at
Brownsville. The writer was stationed
down there about ten months in 1899,
and is well acquainted with the senti
ment of its people.
The majority of the inhabitants of
that section, are a class that think
a colored man is not good enough to
wear the uniform of a United States
soldier yea, not good enough even to
wear the skin of a dog.
They sneer at a colored soldier on
the sidewalk and bar him from their
saloons, resorts, and places of amuse
ment. Why, when I was dowu there, one
Sunday I thought I would go down to
Point Isabella, on the Bay, to spend
tho day. So in company with a young
lady I went down to the depot and pur
chased two tickets (taking advantage
of the excursion.. rates then offered),
boarded the train (which was onlyiit
tle bolter than walking), went into the
car and took a seat. When the train
started, one of the so-called "Texas
Rangers" came up to me and told me
I was in the wrong place. I said, "No,
I guess not; I just read your law, and
it says the Negro and white passen
gers will not ride in the same coach
except on excursions." He replied,
"Don't make any difference, you get
out of here; you are too smart any
way; I will break this gun over your
head if you say much," the meantime
menacing-me with a six-shooter, of the
most improved villianous pattern and
caliber. Well I obeyed his orders be
cause I was alone and could not help
myself. I knew that I was being treat
ed wrong, but he held a "Royal flush,"
and I only had a "four-card bob," and
I knew I could not "bluff" him.
A colored man who has the disposi
tion of a toad frog (I mean one who
can stand to be beaten on the back
and puff up and take It), is all right;
he can stay in that country. But those
vho feel hot blood running through
tlheir veins, and who are proudly and

to protect and defend the American
flag, against any enemy whomsoever,
to obey the orders of the president of
the United States and the orders of
the officer appointed over them (which
they have always done with pride and
honor), cannot stay down there in
peace with honor. Tho people do not
want them either because they wil
probably not be able to carry out their
favorite sport, hanging a colored man
to a limb, or tarring and feathering
him and burning him at the stake with

What Is engaging the attention of
the public most now is the prospects
in the baseball world. The fans know
that it takes time to arrange for
baseball games as .well as for other
athletic sports and they are asking on
every hand what efforts, if any, are
being put forth to furnish the patrons
the class of baseball they want to
spend their money to see. True, John
ny Dobbs is hustling, but Dobbs is a
white , man, and as is the case every
year before the season approaches a
great deal of speculation is indulged
in, and never a winter passes that
some one seeking a little cheap no
toriety does not bob up with some
thing concerning a new park for the
league team, and they as a rule are
so. hard pressed for gray matter from
which to condense thoughts that they
are compelled to draw on their "nig
gerphobia." Some little 2x4 has sug
gested that the Nashville league have
a new park and gives as his reason
for such a need that the present site
is surrounded with Negroes, when, as
U well known, the present site is
bounded on the North by Haury's sa
loon, on the east by Howe's ice fac
tory, and on tho south by Harriman's
Nashville Terminals and the spring
house, and .on the west by nothing
but a bottom full of weeds and gnats.
But this cheap stuff issued by the
would-bes should put the Negroes to
thinking. , "
For years they have been paying
into the coffers of the owners of the
sinkhole known as Athletic Park
their hard-earned money, and annual
ly they are told that they are not
wantejl. They must not teven . give
their lungs too much exercise, it
makes no difference what happens,
unless Bill Bohannon or wee Janslng
makes a sensational stunt. But if the
Hon. Napier or the Rev. Griggs, or
forsooth the Dr. Washington says
something praiseworhy concerning
the ability of the Negro as an athlete
or a man they threaten to close the
gates of the sacred swamp against the
sons of Ham.
Well,1 why chouldn't ithey? The
germ-producing locality belongs to
A cure for all these ills is for the
Negroes to secure a park of iheir own
and on high ground that does not re
quire a fire to be built to dry out. It
would be a paying investment. Then
after the park is fitted up, put a hus
tling man to work to secure a ball
team that would be able to cope with
other teams throughout he country.
Begin now so as to be ready when the
season opens. The fans will pay for
the right kind of ball playing.

Jimmy 'Britt, the pride of the Pacif
ic slope, will have a chance to again
retrieve his lost honors. On March 17,
at Taponah, Nev., he will be pitted
against Joe Gans, the champion light
weight of the world. The Baltimore
fighter seems to be at his best now
and all followers of the ring believe
he will be able to defend his -title
against Britt. The last time these
men met Britt saved himself from a
clean knockout by fouling Gans
when the champion had him at the
last stage of endurance. Although
many strange things have happened
in the fistic arena the opinion is that
if Gans fights he will win. '
ED. MARSHALL MAKES
Ed. Marshall, tho big Minnesota end,
could not be denied a place on the
all-western football eleven for 1906, al
though accused of being a dirty play
er. Perhaps he would not have made
the first team at Minnesota had he not
contained some of the roughness that
is characteristic of all elevens from
Gopher State university. Marshall,
despite this charge, was entitled to a
place on the All-American eleven, and
in 1905 and 1906 was given a place on
the second team by Walter Camp, who
seems to be prejudiced to all sections
except the Easit. Not a single man in
the South was good enough for
place, .although Vanderbilt defeated
the Indians 4 to.0.
