SATUliDAY, JULY 20, 1911. Unless the Republican party goes back to its old stand io defense of the American Negro, it will have no show lo hold the balance of elective power in 1912. ? Tbe Negro is corniDg, a fac', which some willingly,and others reluctantly admit, acd that is why we hear ol so mnch intimidation, and such a large number o! scurrilous articles put in the metropolitan dailies about him and bis race whenever he rloe.s some little indiscreet things that would be noticed in no one save him. It is one of the greatest pities in tbe world tbat some Negroes /lon't have a semblance of regard for the truth. During the past week in this town, there have been some of the tallest efforts at lying it has ever been our privilege to witness, and all bnriuse those talking didn't go to the trouble to see whether what Uvy were talking about was true or not. Sometime ago Mayor Caskoy was very much wrought up about, and seemed determined to make tbe citizens of this town keep their hog pens, outhouses, cess pools and other places of the same kind clean, which was quite commendable in him, but he should still look a little more sharply than he already has, and he will yet find considerable for bit) official eyes to see and cause to he corrected. Booker T, Washington failed to appear when the Ulrich trial was called for a hearing. Why? can any one tell? It is up to him to clear himself, or go down to his grave in the eyes of the public as an alleged drinking man and a white woman seeker, at least that is what id being paid and insinuated. Face the music Booker, find make the man who beat you, out. n liar,for he said you would j npver appear quins' him. The many friends of Robert (Bob) Cole, one of America's foremost comedians and playwrights, will be gUd to learn that be is sufficiently recovered from his recent nervous breakdown to leave the sanatorium v'here htyhas been undergoing con finement. This is good news to Mr. Cole's host of friends here and abroad, bicause well do they know that this inimitable artist's health me^ns untold good to the Negroes everywhere, b/caust he is strictly in a class by himself. England, France and America are said to have jointly handed an ulti matum to poor little Haiti, which says, in effect, that we three big and powerful countries will do as we "dam" please with you, you little' black Republic, and if tbat don't suit, why, we will just blow, or wipe you off tbrf map. In the interim tb? Haitians go about their business, run their afTbirs to suit themselvd, and r.wtit the result with a mien that portrays bravery of thp. sort that was pos?e$r?fed by Haiti's great warrior, statesman and diplomat, Touiasant L Ouvprture. May the little black* Republic continuo to grow and pros per, and 3 et shed lustre upon the met with which it is affiliated, is tbo ardent vipb of lie Pioneer Press. Come l.et I * Stcanon T? gcllicr. I If the alleged religion of Jeeus * Christ bo r<. ul ?nd man's action here will govern bis Iif^ itemally, why not control it by it? To do Ibis ev ery nun is the other's brother, and one 6bould do nothing that will or would work evil to the other. If, on the other hand, the world has put this sound and taou doctrine under foot, and pltaeiype is supreme when bis* fellow muu ia being trod on, what bett? r weupuo can be need thao a shotgun? Lei u> euopose that tj^o white and relioed ladies pay a cor poration its stipulated price lor a Pullman car ticket, aud whea they resell a certain section of this coun try they are taken out of their bed9 in their night g'jwus and shoeless, dragged to u magistrate's ollice, tried and liaod lor riding there, and t?*ld by the magistrate, "You niggers might as well learn now, that the whites are not f-'Oing to allow it, if (hey have lo kill you all," and this vtu3 foid by an Iiish magistrate whose people in Ireland have been treated worse for the past, lour hun dred years, than the Negroes have been ia this country. He is of that iuf rnal class of Irishmen who mada Roger O Moore and Captain O'Neil's lives a hell. He comes from that sou ce of hellish Iriehrneu who made many of Ireland's patriots starve and rot in j ul, and others pay four huu dred pounds or die ia prison. This damnable Casfclereagh Irish man belongs to that treacherous gan?, that took from Ireland for four hundred years, her lands, her pro ducts, burned and destroyed her m Ih and fflC'orirR find murdered h r millions 01 uitu,women and chil dren. He belongs to that, band of Irishmen who were despised in Ire land in life and now are hated in thtir graves. He is of the Pdtler class, who made O'OonoeH's life of honor, a conalant torlure and finally banished him to die from the land and the people ho lov'ed bo much. He comes from that; element that helped England make a law tbat no Irishman could own a horse, house or land, and caused every one to ha sent far beyond the seas if h-3 taught aa Irishman science or literature. His class brought about in Ireland taxation and exter ruination, and as Castlereagh finally cut his throa% may this Irish devil cut hie, or some one cut it for him. In this christian country where all live undpr one fla^, breathe the same air, bleesed by the t-am?! sun's light' and rays and pray to the same God,| if d<ceot, refined and highly educa ted whi'e ladieB b?d been so treated would President Taft and the people generally be mum? No, and no again. Is not a decent, well bred, and intelligent colored girl as good as a white girl? If you say no, what ibink you G->d thinks of the two; all things being equal? Be fair and live I in peace with God and mankind, or j the fate of the Assyrians, Modes, Persians, Egyptians, Greeks and Rome will be your doom, and all you may say or do to prevent it, will not do so. South Carolina has now the big gest blackguard and greatest coward in the gubernatorial mansion that ever graced that historic old building. His name is Coleman- Blease, and we think he would make a much better dog catcher than a governor, for the latter position calls for brutality and coarseness, while the former position .should be filled by a man of refine ment, a quality which Blease does | not and cannot possess. As a "nig ger hater" he has all the Southerners of bis variety "beaten to a frazzle." He is without a doubt the most de graded old scoundrel in the United 'States at this time, and the sooner he is dead, the better it will be for the great State of Louieiaoa, the United States and the white race.

For the lack of patriotic contention becked by independent uiaohood.every ye?r, politically, our rights have been apuined and our whining appeals laughed ol arid played vvitb. Wbote fiult is It?

It was the plaintive songs and earnest prayers of the slave Negroes that made these warriors of God do their duty for freedom, and it is leit for us to so tell the story of 'wrongs to these people,to make them as bole in the future, and as these saints of ours were in other dayp. It is the duty of every race loving man to go there, for as long as black men are jimcrowed, disfranchised, lynched, peoniz d, sbo^fc down like dogs, our rt fined and educated wom en taken from Pullman cars in their nightgowns and bare-footed, and fined for so riding,there is something for brave meu to condemn in no un certain tones, and no place in the world can it be better done than right in Boston.

Billy Sunday, the irotwhile baBe ball player, who is now a traveling evangelipt, lately finished a six week religious campaign in Erie, Pennsyl vania, and quit the town with the handsome sum of twelve thousand dollars ploced safely away in his "joans." With such a financial in ducement as that held out, and paid to the inimitable Sunday, it is quite probable that most preachers, and a large quantity of laymen too, for that inat'er, wouldn?t mind laying aside their regular duties for a brief spell, and "saving souls", too. After re volving in your mind the fact that a man was paid 6uch a fabulous sum as Sunday has been to "lend erring ones unto the Master," the close observer cannot possibly be made to see that evangelistic work a3 carried on in this day and time by the Sun day brand of evangelists is other than clearly a business proposition? that is, we mean for the evangelist, bPCHU>>e he gets the money, and the other fellows the salvation, or what ever else you choose to call it, SAVED II IS WIFE'S LIFE, 41 My wife would have been in her grave today," writes O.
