J. SILAS HARRIS DEAD WRONG
tays Prof. J. Dallas Bowser.
J shall dismiss the article of .Mr.
T. W. II.. Williams with tho remark
that he doubtless means well, but ho
la quite harmless. For any colored
man Who would refuse to read tho
Crisis and would hold up to ridicule
the followers of tho N. A. A. C. P. I
have no mantle broad enough fo cov
er him except with my silence. Dut
Mr. Harris Is not the first In history-
to ho accused of bartering his birth
right for a mess of pottage. When
a Negro, fully cognizant of the damn
able outrages against the colored peo
by Negro hating white persons rushes
Into print with an uncalled for apol
ogy for race segregation, Jim Crow
cars, the abrogation of Constitutional
amendments nffectlng the voting priv
ileges of tho Negro and the N. A. A.
C. P., which was organized to right
those wronged, we may well call In
question his motives for such unwar
ranted apostasy. I repeat Mr. Har
ris is not the first to be accused of
sacrificing an important principle to
a supposed political expediency.
Thero was Esau, the hungry, barter
ing his birthright for a dinner of ba
con and greens; Judas, hungry for a
handful of silver, betraying the Sa
vior; Benedict Arnold surrendering to
the British the Continental soldiery
for a command of Red Coats; the
truculent Negro In slave time at Cin
cinnati and elsewhere along the Ohio
river, keeping watch for runaway
slaves to betray them to their mas
ters and back into slavery; Daniel
Webster, who for a possible, presiden
tial nomination, sacrificed his convic
tions in .his memorable March 7
speech in 1?50 "in favor of the Mis
souri compromise. Their treason was
tho death knell of each of them. Esau
earned the contempt of nil posterity;
Judas hanged himself; Arnold fled to
England and his epitaph Is preserved.
In that matchless classic by Edward
Everett Hale, "A Man Without a Coun
try," Webster, falling of the presi
dency, died the following year of a
broken heart, distrusted alike by
friend and foe. AVhlttler, In his poem,
"Ichabod," written of Webster at tho
time, has well characterized not only
the great orator but all like, him who
court favor with the enemies of man
kind with a view to personal glorifi
cation. I quote two of the nine stanzas:
, "Itevlle him not the tempter hath
f 'A snare for all;
' AnU pitying tears, not scorn and
Befit his fall.
"Then pay the reverence of old days
To his dead fame;
Walk backward with averted gaze,
And hide his shame."
Tho National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People which
Mr. Harris goes out of his way to
disparage. Is no new thing under tho
sun. It is but the extension and com
bination of the first anti-slavery so-
clety formed at Trenton, N. J., In 1780,
and which secured the passage for
tUo gradual emancipation of tho slaves
of that state. Its purposes today are
what they have ever been through all
the .crucial periods of tho nation
liberty to all, justice and a square, deal
Oswald Garrison Vlllard Is but a,
replica of his Immortal grandfather
I William Lloyd Garrison, who was
dragged by a rope through the streets
of Boston and lodged In jail because
pf his. pleadngs for the Negro. Prof.
Dubois Is but the counterpart of the
martyr Lovejoy, murdered at Alton,
111., and his peers thrown Into the
Mississippi river because his paper
was an uncompromising advocate for
freedom to tho slave. .Mary White
Ovlngton and Mary Chllds Nerney are
but disciples of JIarrlett Beecher
Stowe and Mary A. Llvermore con
temporaries of Frederick Douglass
,taklng fom the same platform, with
htV Wendell Phillips and Getrett
Smith in their thunderings against the
ramparts of slavery until God sent
John Brown whose pulpit at Harper's
Ferry made, more converts for free
dom to the slave than all tho preach
ers since the birth of tho Republic.
A . million bayonets was tho. answer
to hls martyrdom.
But for this courage and sacrifice,
this faith In God and man, this .sym
pathy for the oppressed, the Negro
might still be picking cotton in the
delta of the Mississippi, tho slave of
a white master. But for this the proc
lamation of emancipation might never
have been written. And unless this
new abolitionism which was revived
to champion anew the cause of the
(Negro, which is fighting segregation
in Washington, Baltimore, Louisville
and Kansas, City; the grandfather law
In Oklahoma: the chain gang in ueor
gla; Jim, Crow leglslatlpn in Missouri,
and which has rorcea restaurants in
Detroit and schools In Massachusetts
to comply with the civil right laws
relating thereto. Unless this movo
inent shall prosper and become as
great a power for good as the modern'
casto spirit has becomo a power for
evil, yea, unless the Negro himself
shall manifest an interest in his own
behalf equal to that of his white fel
low citizens, then alas, and alack for
the Negro everywhere in this broad
land. For not only shall segregation
provail in the government service of
"Washington, but likewise In Chicago
and Seattle, In Boston and San Fran
clsco, Jim Crow cars will bo as preva
lent In Missouri as in Maryland and
In Ohio as In South Carolina. The
fourteenth and fifteenth amendments
will becomo a dead letter In Iowa as
In Alabnm, and tho poor Negro, llko
Benedict Arnold, be indeed a man
without a country. Tho N. A. A. C.
P. should have 50,000 Instead of Its
present membership of 5,000, and the
Crisis 100,000 subscribers Instead of
the 35,000 It 'now has.

A lite Man Spirals
Editor Kansas City Sun:
Permit mo to speak a few words
through the columns of your valu
able ffaper with reference to Mr. J.
Silas Harris' letter to tho Post. In
writing on this subject I may be per
mitted to say there Is no other mo
tive which prompts me to do this
aside from tho desire to see justice
prevail, controversy destroyed, reason
enthroned and good will to man.
I read with Interest the different
replies from members of Mr. Harris'
race. Some of them Impressed me
with the right spirit with which they
speak of his ill-considered move. If
anyone is mistaken, though he may
be honest, we can never help lilm by
crossing swords in disagreeable
words. It can only be done in the
way the great moral Teacher carried
out His work. He was patient, kind,
forbearing and inspired with love for
his fellowmen; oven in the moment
of betrayal and murder He prayed to
tho Father to forgive them. This
much for one phase of the situation.
I wIbIi to call the attention of the
colored people In this city, as well
as in every community, that the aim
of thedevll's most able agent Is to
cause dlssesslon among a class of peo
ple who are struggling to free them
selves from certain Injustices" and
prejudices. He chuckles In his sleeve
when he has accomplishe dthls. I
speak from experience and of many
years' observation, whenever this evil
Influence has extended Itself among a
certain class of people it has fulfilled
Its mission to the detriment of all
who are'concerned, sometimes caus
ing, not only hatred and malice and
Ill-will, but even bloodshed. Howthe
dear Master understood the work of
the demon when He exclaimed:
"What I say unto you, I say unto all
watch." I trust that all who are
concerned in this matter will awake
to the cunning, evil and Instead of be
coming discontented and estranged
to each other, Join hands with only
one desire In their, that of working,
praying and doing all In their power
to advance their great and just cause;
for It is the cause of humanity, and
we all may repeat the last part of
the Lord's Prayer, "For Thine Is the
kingdom and the power and the glory,
In conclusion I wish to say the X.
A. A. C. P. has a right to exist and
it Is fulfilling Its mission and it is
hero because God wants it to bo here;
good only can come from Us labors.
A GREAT BAND
Those Kansas Cltyans who were
fortunate enough to be at Convention
Hall Thanksgiving night had the
pleasure of hearing one of the great
est Negro bands in America Des-
dune's Band xof Omaha, vNeb.N Their
program was excelle'nt and the saxa
phone solo by Thos. Watkins, "Sllvor
Threads Among tho Gold," provoked
thunderous applause and he was com
pelled to give it again during the even
ing. Capt. Thomas as a cornetlsf, has
no equal, and his triple tongued solo
required an encore In which he most
effectively rendered "Dearest Memo
ries." Levi Broomfleld made his first
appearance before a Kansas City audii
ence as a. baritone soloist and he Jit
erally took .the house by storm. But
atiove all was the uncomparable lead
er) Capt. I)an Desdunes, easily the
greatest Negro bandmaster In Ameri
ca, and a composer of recognized abil
ity. After the concert dancing was
Indulged in until 1:30. About C00 per

TRAIN PORTERS PLEASED.
Please permit us, in behalf of tho
Santa Fe train porters, to thank tho
several clergymen in the two Kansas
Cltys for the loyal support and earn
est effort put forth in tho recent elec
tion to defeat the ninth amendment,
known as tho "Full Crew Bill."
Had this bill become a law several '
hundred colored men now employed
throughout the state of Missouri would
have been thrown out of employment
juast as they were in the states of
California, Arizona and several others
some years ago.
It Is with pleasure that we point
with pride to the number of railroad
officials who went to the front and
fought this bill in the Western 'coun
try through the newspapers, that it
might be known that they had no de
sire to discriminate against a race
on account of Its color, and whoso
fathers fought and died to uphold the
Constitution of the United States.
Again we regret that such an un
fair and discriminating proposition
was offered by our white brothers In
the service, and It behooves us as a
race to stand together and watch
those who are prejudiced against us
on account of our colorr. We must
eve remember that "United we stand,
divided we fall."
