SATU11DA*. JULY 27ih.t l'Jlsj The Pioneer Prees ha# aivvaya lived by ibis rule: to go down in the light against, wrong is glorious. Bend all tbo palaver yoa mold to us on tbo a*euujed feasibility of tbe parcele povi, and il will have as much weight to change our mind in its favor, aa pouiing water on a duck will make u believe that the pond ia xo place for ii. Ii really bears as much of a similar feature in favor of the express companies, as trusts do to tbe tariff. Sugar ia wanted, and must bo in every American home. Why then, should tbe poor people pay a tax oi more than one hundred million dol lars?called protective tarifi? If there was no duty on sugar tbo poor penplo would be paying not more than 3 cenls a pound for sugar, and what holds good in augur holds good in every other needful thing in food and clothes. Give us free trade and down goes staivution prices and up goes the poor man's better living and happier homes. If the editor of tbe Pioneer Press had enough of the luxuries of life in his belly to throw oat, it certainly would start upward, after learning of tbe visit of a few office holders to Mr. Taft?Trotter's telegram idol? and pledging what thoy oannot giro, the solidarity of tbe Negro vote that is absolutely against him?even Trot ter, the uhell raiser"?has left him And gouo to Wilson, wbo thanks God that no Negro has entered Princeton University since he has been Presi dent of it?though they did before ho was, Kent assured that not until God's children ara schooled and religioaized side by sido tbio country over, and the mind of man and woman bo the -yard stick to tell how high, bro?d, vii*e and good thoy are, will the decree of tho one Father of all be satisfied; and tbe Wilson class rolegated-'io tho frbtdes of condemna tion. iMr. Wilson has said: "It wa? a crime to give the right to vote to Negroes." D?ny it if you dare. Champ Clfiik wr<* the man who should hovo been nominated, and we ? re sorry it wm Wilson, but Trotter will elect him. The statu of Maine led off right relative to the emolument of oOice, and its precedent should havo lasted and obtained in all the territory of the United States; for wc don't be lieve it is right for the poor toilers to do tho work of and for the nation at really starvation prices, to soy nothing of the fact that they produce the large families, und only get on an average a dollar a day, while the President gets $142,00 a day and congressman $20 00 n day,and others twice and three tiints as much. Why not men whom these poor toilers Bend to Congress to legislate for them , do it for no more than tbe vote re get *ho eend thorn tbore? Two dollars a day is an abundance for congrepfcmcn, and 50 <;cnia a !ay a plenty for the ball going ones, " *"'? ? ?? ? .. -Ui ? ?'V. The Baltimore American is re sponsible for the allocution that the House of Representatives can't keep a quorum for the craze of members going to see games of baseball. Tbey are paid $20 a day by ttio poor peo ple to make laws for ibem, and why do! stay on tbeir jobi? Suppose ibe poor laborers leave tbeir work to go to see ball games, wbal would tbelr employees do with them? Discharge them. Why not discharge (Jong rues meu when tbey do likewise, theD? Mr. Clare nee W. Ambrose, the well known dairyman, has announced himself aa a candidate for the asses eorship nomination on the Dsmocrat ic ticket. Mr. Ambrose is a man of excellent standing in this communi ty, bears a county-wide acquaintance, is r/ell vereed in business affairs, and if nominated and ehcled, we believe he would make a very capable public ofticial. Therefore, the Pioneer Press heartily commends Mr. Ambrose to discriminating people os a person of exceptional merit. Ifow one Negro can advocate Preo ident Teft, and blame another for favoring Mr. Roosevelt, is strange indeed. When the two are eqaarely om parsd one must be set aside us a foo ?full of color prejudice, or lacks mauhood; while the other has man hood and has been a friend. Mr. i Taft is u Brutus to his friends, Mr. Roosevelt true as steel to bis, and to be frank, wo believe his election would be 500 per cent, better for this country than any of the other nominees. The editor of tbiu paper thinks more of his homo, and tho place of bis nativity than any other plic-'fl on Qod's green eartb;aDd when it comes to poliiica, bo thinks more of bow his state should go, than wbo the presi dent should be. We are not, atraid of the democrats of this state, from tho fact, there aro not enough ring tailed devils among tbem to do as harm, and our advice is: vote for real men, rather than for party meo, and in doing so make those you support pledge their honor to stand by your constitutional rights. We always do that, and frown down with contempt tbo offer of money. It's a bad wign after sprinkling! turpentine on the raw of our Boston deserters for spoils, to have tbem reply in calling us "brother;'' and Wm. D. Johnson calls u? MHon." We claim no relationship with the gang, &od if wo were related, wo would really be ashamed to own it. We are no "Hon.''?simply a haokwooda editor, and our alma mater i? well known the world over, and has credit for making horse sanso men?it 1q tbe university of hard knook? and if* oar pridt to own It. Shut op, and abut op now, or tbo coat will bo taken off and many oth er things explained, and by tho way, Boston numbers among its posses sions an individual whose misfortune is a flint-lock brain, a hair trigger moath and a limber jaw. "Snnnyslope Farm," Yonkers, New York, the palatial and commod ioue couniry home of Mr. and Mrs, JohuE. Bruce, of that city, has been tbo8C3De of many an auspicious gathering, as well as a plaoo of en tertainmeut for men and women of eminence, and the reputation it has earned along that line is being fully sustained at this time, Mr. and Mrs. Bruce having a3 their guest, the distinguished African scholar, Dr. E. D. Ij. Thompson, of Sierra Leone West Africa, he having arrived in Yonkers, oo Aug09l 14. The Doctor is a graduate of Manchester College, in England, and is widely known as the auibor of a history of the Colony wherein he repides. Ho also rightly enjoys the distinction of being an tit quent platform speaker, a deliver er of foieeful trulh?, and r\ pulpiteer who is second to none. His visit to Mr Biuco will ? xtcr.ii rvrr b prrlod several weeki, and during that lime he will find the Bruces entertainer! who know how to entertain. A number of Negroua, hig and lit tle, called on Hie KxceiUncy, Hod* William Howard Taft, Preeident ot the United Sta i?b, one day not long ago, and give thai distinguished gentleman lo understand that tjsky, mind you, had it all ttxed, or words lo that t fleet, and would guarantee to deliver unto him a Bulll'jient por tion of the Negro vote to insure his pueceKB at iho Ntvembcr election. Will some one be so kind as to tell us how theae Negro gentlemon can have tbo unadulterated gall to brace the President and ponr iuto his ears such stuff as Ibe pre&a suy they did? Why, dog gone.their blooming pic tures, thoy can't deliver Tftft thn Negroes, or any other goes for that matter, and they know it just bb w?11 as aujbody else. Tbeir play to the galleries might be termed comic op era, but, really, wa don't think it is doser-ing of so meritorious a desig nation. Tho sfcugo setting, is too light. Nex*. time this little coterie of black, tan and yellow gentleman had bettor hit upon a better plan to air themselves, sad app?ar big, or s\ay at uotne and attend to their pri vate business?if ihey have any. Oae of tbo latest atrocities it hsa been our privilege to boar of, hop pened In Bellaire, O-iio, aud it dem onstrates very clearly that there are white meo iu this country who are not very far removed from the bru^e creation. In this particular case, the hi)Qiao hyena, because ho is nothing less, swooped down upon his little Bleeping aix year old daughkor, and criminally assaulted bcr. In face of 8Uoh au aot, and this Is only only one of many of a like kind, it is disgust ing iu the extreme to hear white men and while women talking about ih6 bestiality and degeneracy of black people. It id all right to critioiso degenerates, bnt the crticism should be general, and not special, because, to our way of thinking, there is not the slightest difference between a white brute and a bhek one. There fore, in keeping with the* severe con demnation that invariably follows the commission of rape by a Negro, we think it but just and proper for the rabid press and the usual horde of "nigger haters" to busy themselves in holding up |to public scorn the fiend Incarnate who despoiled the fleah and blood of his own wee baby ?jirl in the city of Bellaire, Belmont County, Ohio. Candidates for office are abroad everyvr^ere those days, and it is certainly amusing U boo how nice they trea* the voura. 31 Irving Street, Winchester, Mass, July 22,1912. Hon. J. R. Clifford, Esq. Editor of the Pioneer Press, Martinsburg, W. Ya. Dear Sir. In the last issue of your esteemed Journal, you say among other things: "So far as Win. D.Johnson is concerned he is known as Boston's public loafer, beggar and a man who has a bad court record/ ' I demand a retraction and apology in the next issue of your widely circulated paper, Or I will place the matter in the hands of my attorney. I remain, Yours truly, W. D. Johnson. Hurry up and give your attorney something to do. No retraction or apology at this end: the hotter the war the sooner peace. lit The Wages Of Sin Is Death" OonlioQed from firet page. or potential, everyone, When the gambling bouses are closed these craaturew tern to their other natural employments.

Give it a setting of mahogany wnd cut glass end chased eilver, and it is etill the same. I'-s promoters an J o*mp followers are the earns obsceno birds, the eeme evil vultures. They feed on human oarrioo, on human cadaver. Their aim in life is to take tbo money of the fools who oome :o them in good faith to play a game of chance. But. it is no game of chance, The victim hasn't a cbance in the world. Oce way or another the cards are stacked against him, the machinery worked by secret wires, the "percent, age" fixed eo that the victim's mon ey is taken from him just as surely as if the gamblers pat their slimy ficgers into bis pockets, and, far more sneakingly and cowardly, for it ia often dooe under tbe guise of good fellowship or even friend ship. The gambler is an outcast from so? cievy. The moral sense of the com munity has made him 00. Tbe oom mon eense of the people has made him co. The law has m%de him 00, Yet, by sharing his profits with the pnlioe, be continues to sneak book into society and to fatten on the ruin be creates. j He is aided in this, to some extent,' by the false romanticism that is thrown about him, the silly tradi tion's of a gambler's honor and a gambler's word. A gambler has no honor, and his word is a lie, He is jost a lower degree of aneak thief and pickpooifet. If tbe marder of Rosenthal serves to drive boma to the publio a sense of tbe (me character of tbe gambler, of tbe otter silliness of expecting from him anything bat sneaking, oowardly crime, it can proceed witb a calmer mind to catch the assassins and pot them to an appropriate death,?Philadelphia North Ameri can. ; t^optis* /VewxHatfon fro M&et Av^j. 27.
