IICC OLDEST NEGRO JOURNAL ... IN KANSAS CITY, TWICE ALL THE RFST. i"he paid circulation of The Rising Son is more than double the combined circu lation of all the other Kansas City Colored weekly newspapers. Thi' press throughout the United State denounce the Springfield Mis souri lynching In the strongest terms. In connection with the unfortunate calamity In San Frunclsco, God la hiniply warning a great and mighty nation that He s greater and mightier. We are glad to Know that Nelson ('. Crews has lieen confirmed by the council for his old place. Elmer Jackson has been slated for assistant to Mr. Crews. The selection Is a good one. The good people of this country re ' ganlless of color or race commend (iov. Folk in his fearless attitude on lynching. The Governor is determin ed to uphold the majesty of the law at all risk. The unnatural attitude of Mr. Paddock of Ft. Worth. Texas, on the lynching at Springfield assorted it self whe he declared that the people of Springfield who took part in the lynching did exactly right. Such however is to lie expected of a Texan generally speaking. The question of guilt did not alter his position nor modify his expression so Ions as the life of a defenceless 'negro is sacrificed. The manager of the Son has ask ed the powers that he for a small hit of pie at the City Hall After fighting in the party battles for the past ten years we would like to In quire if the party leaders and those in power do not think he deserves something. We art' In a position to know whether we are deserving of consideration. their own race. At that time there were not many Negro physician In Kansas City and onr people had not Le n properly Informed as to the abil ity and qualification of our Medical f:atrnlty. The fact thnt the Negro physicians of today are as well school d as Hre those of the white race did not occur to our people. The! Negro press took the question In hand and brought about confidence and shortly afterwards this field was sought by a number of physicians, the product of our race, whose merit asserted Itself In a manner that can tie vouched for only by those whose bodily afflictions required the atten tion of the profession. The result of a methodical f fort on the part of the irofesslon assisted by the press has ten very satisfactory. Cures of many cases, remarkable for their com- ilications, have been effected by our Negro physicians and are r -- o the credit of the profession. Drs. lolly, t'nthank. I.ambrlght and Shan non were among the first to evidence to the public that the profession com manded the same respect regardless f color. Then came Drs. Birch. Dib ble, Perry. Ranisev and several others who are giving general satisfaction. Then we have two Negro dentists, Pr. Chapman and Dr. Carrion, who are doing a gxul business and build- ng up a large clientage. The Son Is very proud of our pro fessional men and It Is with much densure that now and then we give them a line of praise. For Gay Window Gardens.

Down past enchanted woods to where Romance walks ever young, Where kings ride forth to take the air On steeds with velvet hung Where secret stairways tenmt the bold. Where pirate caves abound, And many a chest of Spanish gold May solemnly be found! Through magic years It twines and creeps Past towers of peacock blue, Where still some captured princess sleeps And dreams come always true. Then gleam by gleam the light goes out, Then darkened, grief by grief, It sighs Into our Sea of Doubt And manhood's unbelief! Arthur Stringer. The negroes of Kansas City and the state of Missouri keenly regret the unfortunate affair at Springiield. They feel that as a race they have been greatly wronged, especially so when two of the negroes who were lynched and hurtled were declared by the police officials to he innocent of crime. Indeed the tragedy was cold and cruel in every particular. The good negroes of Kansas City and elsewhere do not condone the crimes of the had element of their race but rather condemn the vile and criminal Inclination of that class and frequently agitation Is carried on by our societies and churches and Indi viduals having for Its purpose a re moval of the cause of so much crime committed by the ignorant and cure less class of the negro race. But their efforts are handicapped by the existence of a large number of places where crime Is planned, and there are other impediments actually known to our white friends, which It seems an Impossibility to remove. With all these disadvantages to fight down, the good element of the colored peo ple are disposed to do what they can to Improve upon the present condition. IN NEGRO MEDICAL PROFESSION KANSAS CITY. Few cities In the West offer a greater and more lucrative field for the Negro physicians than Kansas City. This fact, however, has become apparent only recently. Ten or fif teen years ago the colored people of Kansas City were somewhat indiffer ent toward employing physicians of i When Trees Explode.
