"I did not knov you were keeping storey here, else I would have
been nround 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. He was managing to make a living, but he had not
gotten his friends' trade because he had neglected to let his friends
know that he was in business.
IIow many friends were there just like the first? How many dol
lars had this colored man lost through neglect to notify the public
which includes his friends.
The business man did not even1 resort to the somewhat out-of-
date method of scattering circulars. He had never considered ad
vertising. 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. Ho did not seem to
care to know that the public largely patronized these mprchants be
cause they let the community know what they had for sale. He was
still in the, beginning class, making but little more than a laborer
Mr. Colored Business jSlan, the opportunity is yours, like that 01

wants you to let the public know what you have.

Colorado State Penitentiary.
Hon. N. C. Crews, Dear Sir: I am
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, 1011, where I was in
stantly convicted and sentenced to
death and my aged father, a man of
near 83 years, was also convicted aa
an accomplice and sentenced from 30
to 59 years at hard labor in state pen
itentiary. I was sentenced to death
for protecting my aged father and
motherr In . their own. home, and my
llfeAat ,the cost of the 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.,
aided' at great expense by good citi
zens 'of both races and members of
my lodge, the R. T. Coles lodge, No.
80, A, P. and A. St, Kansas City, Mo.,
and my father's, Prudent lodge, No. 6,
A. F. and A. M., Kansas City, Kas.,
I succeeded In getting our case to the
supremo 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 he carried out, and they
will use every means in their power
to gain their helllBh ends, and to
thwart all in their desire to see me
get justice. I appeal to you for finan
cial aid, if you can assist me in any
way through the columns of your pa
per, or otherwise, to meet the finan
cial demands involved, It will be great
ly appreciated. My reason for sending
you a copy of the supreme court's de
cision and comments, 1b for you to see
clearly It was not an act trying or at
tempting to defy the law In any way,
"but one of protecting my parents and
my life. I again heg to state that I
am a worthy member of R. T. Coles
lodge, No. 86, Kansas City, Mo., and
my father, Joseph Harris, of Prudent
lodge. No. C, Kansas City, Kas., being
a 32 degree man and a 33 degree gen
tleman. So I appeal to you most ear,
neatly, that you may do -for us what
you can. You may' refer to your re
spective lodges as to our standing.
Should you feel disposed to aid us,
forward same to my mother, 'Mrs,
Clara Harris, No. 1319 River street,

to gain us Justice and every one looks
to her to be paid for any expense in
curred in helping father and me.
Please acknowledge receipt to me.
Hoping for your assistance, I am,

SOME OF THE STRUGGLES OF
THE NEGRO PRESS.
One evening this week at the close
of a very busy day I drew me up at
my desk. Before mo 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 strung with tht one on top it was
the Oklahoma O, there I go, I didn't
mean to -call any names, hut 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 Negro passengers over cer
tain railroad lines; which was brave
ly undertaken. The Dallas Express
came in for a similar criticism while
tho 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 cdlored papers that take first
rank in typographical cleanliness and
mechanical accuracy are tho Amster
dam News, Richmond Planet, Kansas
City Sun, and New York Age.
It Is with no small degree of ap
preciation that I review the merits
and demerits of those Journals and
Journalists, -wlio17 are struggling as 1
am; for to publish a Negro Journal
nt this period means sacrifice at
every stopover. I see written in great
red headlines at the head of the mean
est effort in the 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 tho big dallies. I often
have a man come into my office to
complain about a stick of matter up
eido 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 30 hours Instead or
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 relieving 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 1
Jeeringly or criticise an effort that
you yourself are not brave enough to j
make. If you cannot give thousands, '
you can give the widow's mite and !
the least you pay on your subscrip
tion will be precious in the editor's
sight.- California Eagle. I
