SOME OF THE STRUGGLES OF
THE NEGRO PRE8S.
One evening this week at the close
of a very busy day I drew mq Up at
my desk. Before mo was scattered a
mass of newspapers, all bearing the
distinction og colored. My already
tired brain and sun strained eyes al
most refused tho task that was set be
fore. Dut from somewhere and some
how I gained courage, and plunged In
by strtlng -with tho ono on top It was
the Oklahomar-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 ono could not
even 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. Tho Dallas Express
came In for a similar criticism while
the Boston Alllanco and Conservative
Counsellor Is void of that harmon
ious toning with other parts of the
papers on account of too much front
page advertisenlent. In others there
were similar and even more grievous
Tho 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 Ago.
It Is with no small degree of ap-
preclation that I review tho merits
and demerits of these Journals and
Journalists, who are struggling as i
am; for to publish a Negro Journal
at this perlbd means sacrifice at
every stopover. I see written in great
red headlines at the head of tho 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 the big dailies. I often
have a man come into my office to
.complain about a stick of matter up
sido down in the last issue of an artl
clo that was backed; up tbe wrong
way. Now, If he, perhaps, know that
my day had been 36 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 mtte might help a lit
tle In relieving the situation. For
whenever you see faults standing out
I conspicuously In Negro papers there
1 is but one conclusion to come to, and
that is that finance is oh, so short.
Now, don't stand apart and laugh
Jeeringly 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
the least you pay on your subscrip
tion will bo precious In the editor's
sight. California Eagle.
