where not only better wases are as- j students, and ako quite a number ot
sured, but better educational facul
ties, moral, social and political condi
tions are also assured; and
Whereas, The trend of Negro labor
northward has become alarming in
some sections of the South, where al
ready a scarcity of laborers Is mani
fest, and labor conditions are grow
ing worse; and
Whereas, Instead of the Southern
newspapers dealing frankly, truthfully
and fairly with this perplexing ques
tion, many of them are resorting to
misrepresentation, abuse and villainy,
thus making the rent worse; and
Whereas, It is an undeniable fact
that the Negro is constantly legislated
j against, segregated even In govern
: ment3 works. Jim Crowed and abused
on public carriers, refused decent
! service and proper accommodations
j accorded the Turks. Mexicans, Hin
doos, Filipinos, Hawaiian and all oth
er foreiim nationalities Of Europe,
j Asia and the Isles of the sea, for the
lanmfl fares naid. In many dis
jtricts no public schools are furnished
Npctops for their chllrden, and In
many other districts only three to five
months are given with inferior and ln
! roninetent young girls as teachers. It
Is also an undeniable fact that Ne-i
' uroes are often flayed alive, burned at
the stake and lynched upon the slight
est nrovocation. without even a pre
tense of a trial, and oftentimes after
tlie death of the victim it Is proven
without a doubt that the wrong and
an innocent Negro has been lynched.
Even in some instances railroads have
furnished special trains to carry spec
tators and souvenir-iiunters to the
place of lynching to view the wreak
ins wretch, with reduced rates. This
diabolical rnndition winked at by
governors, sheriffs, marshals, lectin-j
