very much that such a thing happened
at this time or at any other time,
but the part that we feel should be
regretted most Is the act of a strong,
robust man mistreating a poor, help
less Negro woman. The people of
Houston and especially the Negro
people should feel very much out

when we are being called upon to

to free those weaker nations from
the clutches of the stronger and mob,
lynching and Inhuman treatment con
tinue at our door.
IS THE NEGRO A MENANCE TO
OR A CITIZEN OF THIS REPUB
LIC? This is a question that needs the
thoughtful consideration of every
member of this race. When we con
sider the number of times he has
been mistreated, viz., lynching, race
riots etc., it seems that he is a men

has been very strongly spoken of in

INCONSISTANT POSITION. The
The Negro is an integral part of
our population and he numbers many
millions, most of whom live in the
south. He is a human being and
under our constitution a citizen of
this country to be protected by laws.
The sober good sence of the white
people of this country should be ex
ercised and brought in to play to put
down all attacts on the Negro. We
go into a world war to free Europe
from domination of autocracy and
anarchy and at home find something
of that sort of lawlessness practice by
our own people. It is an Inconsis
tant position; Just such words will
hasten the day when Mobrule in
the south will be in disfavor. When

BEDFORD COUNTY COLORED
FAIR A SUCCESS.
Shelbyville, Tenn., Aug 27.
The Bedford County Annual Color
ed Fair closed Saturday afternoon.
In point of attendance the fair was
well up to previous years. The live
stock and industrial and Agricul
ture exhibits were excellent from
every stand point. Several hundred
dollars in cash premiums were given
away in the various exhibits. The
fair was a success in every particu
lar. Murfreesboro Sentinel.
The year 1915 is shown to be the
healthiest year in the history of the
country by the United Census report
on vital statistics for that year is
sued a few weeks ago. The death
rate in the registration area was 13.5,
having dropped from 19.8 during the
35 years since the establishment of
the registration area. It is noted,
however, that the rate of decline of
the death rate is slowing up; the
year 1914 was 13.6. Some of the
health experts are of the opinion that
the reports for the years 1916 and
1917 will show even an increase over
that of 1915. A separate table is
made for cities in which Negroes
compose more than 10 per cent of the
popuiatiou, lor the reason, as some
have explained, that the high death
rate among Negroes influences un
favorably the general death rate. One
writer in commenting upon this re
mark that the death rates of a com
munity is very materially increased
by a heavy Negro population. The
race, in his opinion, has not adapted
Itself to the disease of American com
munity life; but that it is gradually
doing so he admits that other observ
ers have found evidence. The lower
ing of the death rate among babies
is credited with the greater part of
the improvement in the general death
rate. The number of babies dying
while under one year of age was
7,000 less than in the previous year.
It is shown that the more important
cause of death In order were: Heart
disease, consumption, pneumonia,
Bright disease, cancer, apoplexy, in
fant diarrhoea, diptheria, typhoid,
Whooping cough, measles and scarlet
fever. The consumption rate is pro
gressively on the decline. In a period
of fifteen years the rate had fallen
from 202 to 145. High rates in North
Carolina, Kentucky, Maryland, and
Virginia are said to be influenced by
the heavy Negro population.
