To us out here in Iowa, Hon N. E.
Kendall act in resenting that brutal in

I the free prairie of Iowa. It is typical
of our sense of justice, If perchance
old washwoman had been a white
woman he would have done the same
and every honest true American citizen
will say that he dfd the right thing and
we commend him. He is a true man
with that vision that knows no color
when it comes to treating human be
ings. If more of the Angle Saxon race
would resent the wrongs unjustly heap
ed upon the defenseless colored man.
This inferior race hated and unrespect
able class would not burn, kill, murder
and lynch human beings. There are
thousands and thousands of white peo
ple who just shudder daily at the atro
cities and insults being heaped upon the
black man, but they will say nothing
to stop it. They seem to be afraid of
public censor, consequently will let the
hoodlum have his course. Let- all
America take a lesson and profit by it
PROTECT SLACK WOM
Never in the history of our lives saw
.the demand greater for us to stand up
aa men and protect our wives and
daughters with every spark of manhood
in us from the ravages of the indecent
street mashers who lay in wait to de
stroy the honor and virtue of our wom
en. These human vultures are doing
more to sink as into the depths-of de
ence. They are not all men of our race
but men of other races as well, who
are not satisfied with the associa
tion of the auirlot women of our race,
but /rill, use every means available
to reduce any Negrowoman to a state
of immorality. They have the temerity
to ask Negro men to assist them in run
ning down their quarry. If the reader
doubts the truthfulness of their state
ment let them ask the Negro hotel por
ter the saloon porter and even the Ne
gro policeman, and if they would give
you a truthful answer, they could tell
of being isked to supply women of their
race for immoral purposes for the men
be said that this abominable practice
confined to the south but at this
day and age it is not restricted to any
particular section of the country. We
must awake to the facc that unless we
arise and assert our manhood against
this damnable practice. We will
all be classed as an inferior peo
ple. A race nation is measured
largely by the moral status of. its wom
en and wlien we fail to resent the in
sults of this kind that are heaped upon
us. We are less than men and traitors
to the advancement of humanity. Let
jus resolve that by the "eternal" we
will protect the honor of our women
with our manhood money and our lives
if neeessary and by doing this the world
will respect us men.
