"I did not know you were keeping store here, else I would have
been around to patronize you," was what a colored man; was over
heard to'say to a colored business man a few days ago. This busi
ness man had been at the one stand for several years, but this friend
did not know it. Ho was managing to make a living, but ho had not
gotten his friends' trade because he had neglected to let his friends
know that he was in business.
How many friends were there just like the first J How many dol
lars had this colored man lo3t through neglect to notify the public
which includes his friends.
The business man did not even resort to the somewhat out-of-date
method of scattering circulars. He had never considered "ad
vcrtising. He, too, knew that white merchants who have built their
business from small beginning to large propositions had been large
users of advertising space in the newspapers. He did not seem to
care to know that the public largely patronized these merchants be
cause they let the community know what they had for sale. Ho was
still in the beginning class, making but little more than a laborer
Mr. Colored Business Man, the opportunity is yours, like that of
the white man who began small. The race wants to support you, but
wants you to let the public know what you have.

Colorado State Penitentiary.
Hon. N. C. Crews, Dear Sir: I jim
enclosing herewith a copy of a decis
ion handed down by the supreme court
of Colorado In regard to my case,
which was hastily , tried In district
court of Otero county at La Junta,
Colo., In July, 1911, where I was In
stantly convicted and sentenced to
death and my aged father, a man of
near 83 years, was also convicted as
an accomplice and sentenced from 30
to 50 years .at hard labor In state pen
itentiary. I was sentenced to death
for nrotectlns my aged father and
mother, In their, eras, home, and my
life at the cost of tho lives of the two
brutal, Inhuman, prejudiced, Negro-
hating, lawless policemen who were
assaulting my mother and father, and
seeking to murder me.
But after being denied a new trial
by the Judge trying my case, my at
torney. Ex-Judge Lyman I. Henry of
Pueblo, Colo., assisted by W. B. Town-
send, attorney-at-law of Denver, Colo.,

and my father's, Prudent lodge. No. 6,

I succeeded In getting our case to the
supreme court, which readily- reversed
the Judgment of the lower court, and
granted me a new trial which will
Now, dear sir, the fight has Just
commenced as the prejudiced class In
that community are determined that
the sentence Imposed on my father
and myself bo carried out, and thoy
'will use every means In their power
to gain their hellish ends, and to
thwart all In their desire to see me
get Justice. I appeal to you for flnan-
clal aid, if you can assist me in any
way through the columns of your pa
per, or otherwise, to meet the flnan
clal demands Involved, it will be great
ly appreciated. My reason for sending
you a copy of tho supreme court's do-"
clslon and comments, is for you to see
clearly It was not an act trying or at

bu one of protecting my parents and

SOME OF THE STRUGGLES
THE NEGRO PRESS.
One evening this week at the close
of a very busy' day I drew mo up at
my desk. Before me was scattered a
mass of newspapers, all bearing tho
distinction og colored. My already
tired brain and sun strained eyes al
most refused the task that was set be
fore. But from somewhere and some
how I gained, courage, and plunged In
by strtlng with the one on top It was
tho Oklahoma O, there I go, I didn't
mean to call any names, but the
press work on that particular pour
nal was so poor that one could not
oven properly translate the answers
to Booker Washington's article, ask
ing for better traveling accommoda
tions for'-Nogro passengers over cer
tain railroad lines; which was brave
ly undertaken. The Dallas Express
came In for a similar criticism while
the Boston Alliance and Conservative
Counsellor., IS void of that harmon
ious toning with other parts of the
papers on account of too much front
page advertisement, in others there
were similar and even more grievous
The colored papers that take first
rank In typographical cleanliness and
mechanical accuracy are the Amster
dam News, Richmond Planet, Kansas
City Sun, and New York Age.
It Is with no small degree of ap
preciation thnt 1 review the merits
and demerits of these Journals and
Journalists, who are struggling as 1
am; for to publish a Negro Journal
at this period means sa'crlfice at
every stopover. I see written In great
red headlines at the head of tho mean
est effort In tho way of a Negro Jour
nal these words, "Self Sacrifice."
Our readers are more sensitive to
literary abuse in a race paper than
they are to the big dallies. I often
have a man come Into my office to
complain about a stick of matter up
side down In the last issue of an artl
clo that was backed up the wrong
way. Now, If he, perhaps, knew that
my day had been 36 hours Instead ot
eight In comparison with his, Instead
of criticising he would step In and
offer to pay his subscription with the
hope that his mite might help a lit
tle In rellovlng the situation. For
whenever you see faults standing out
conspicuously In Negro papers there
Is but one conclusion to come to, and
that Is that finance is oh, so short.
Now, don't stand apart and laugh
Jeorlngly or criticise an effort that
you yourself are not brave enough to
make. If you cannot give thousands,
you can give the widow's mite and
tho least you pay on your subscrip
tion will be precious In the editor's
sight. California Eagle.
