by foreign powers, the prosperi'y of five
hundrcd colored 'itllzeis of ielena 1:1
Jeolpardized, and the "Afro-American
Htelena-for-the-Capital club" appeal to
their brethren, you who lov'' your race,
you who are lay li to ev,'ry cause,
throughout the length and breadth of
Montana, to stand stLd 'a.t andr true in
this great battle agai'i+t injusthce and
oppression. t'phold and maintain the
reputation you have naeuired, and cave
our beloved state fr .m shame and
thousands of dolla:-s worth of property
owned by your fellowv colored citizens
from delreclation. The iron cliva of cor
porate infernalism 1 as always crushed
out the black man from every fac tory
or workshop, and the Allnaconds copper
company Is no exception to the rule.
This question of locating the pernla
nent capital is a very grave one, and our
colored brothers in neighboring clites
should not bend their knees to petty
nonsense. Take not the shadow for the
substance. IHe not flattered by honeyed
words, nor blinded by lying Judasea
who prate about prejudice against the
colored man in Helena. While we do
not claim to be visited by angels, yet
some of us can boast of being pioneers,
not only of Montana. but of Helena, and
have resided and labored midst the
fairer complexioned citizens of this now
beautiful city since its inception. Wealth
has been accumulated, and we can
proudly say that whether professional
men, merchants or labor, s oe sought,
our city can produce them in black as
well as white. Practically, there is no
more prejudice shown in Helena on ac
count of color than in any other city in
Montana. Our business men are as pros
perous as the average citizen and are
patronized by all people alike.
Would our friends and brothers
throughout his state he persuaded by
the blandishments and fallacies of a
known enemy rather than lend a help
ing hand to their friend? We cannot be
li.ve that you will prove recreant or
faint-hearted by taking a leap in the
dark. In the name of all that is dear to
us. in the name of posterity, let it not
go forth to the world that the colored
man, b)y voting for grasping corpora
tions and trusts, erected a barricade
We cannot conlllude this address with
out reiterating that the accusations ap
plied to Helena concerning the preju

hoo'.ds, manufactured in the minds of
hirelings for the sole purpose of poison.

O. W. McConnell and M. 8. Ounn have
been discussing the capital issue before
the people of Deer Lodge and Granite
counties during, the past week. Large
and enthusiastic meetings have been
held in Drummond. Bearmouth, New
Chicago. Stone Station and Garrison. In
the places mentioned Helena's friends
are increasing in numbers every day. At
New Chicago the traveling boodle dis
tributer was present, and after the
meeting had adjourned Insulted the
good people of that place by saying that
they were for Helena when Helena's
speakers were there, and that they
would all be for Anaconda when the
Anaconda men visited them. Itn ian
unage more forcible than elegant, a
dozel men called the boodle man down.
He at once took his departure, and has
not been seen or heard of since.
