THE OPPROBRIUM OF THE JIM CROW CAR LAW The General Effect of its Passage on the Negro Voters. Hanging over the negroes heads In the state of Missouri is a "Jim Crow ' bill which was Introduced by certain legislators for the purpose of pushing the negro to the wall and .making him cringe before the onslaughter of the white man's prejudice. This bill would be depressive from many standpoints, as It would have a tendency to curb his Joyful spirit and stem his ambition. If the bill would pass it would make the negro In Missouri forver Republican. It it does not pass it will cause some Ne groes to be independent voters. Any state that would pass a Jim Crow measure only retards the progress of The Btate. The Negro is an integral Has the Republican Party of Jackson County Kept its Pledge to the 5.500 Negro Voters? The white leaders of the Repub'i can party believe they can forever ig nore Negro voters with impunity. It has been a very long time since the negro has had represent at ion in the county. Every race but the negro has a representative In all the offices. At the outset the negro was promised one or two positions. Frank Boss, Samuel Hover and Oscar Uo'.-hlniul promised negroes positions. In 1!n2 the negroes organ ized and fought the county tic ket and defeated If In 19t4 the county tteeke.' v as elected and they gave the Negroes promises what would lie done. The chairman of the county ticket at. that 'time could not carry out his promises because the candidates elected to office refused to stand by their pledges. At that time the Hi.n. P. S. Hrown pacified a few of th Negro leaders by giving them de positions. The Negro voters not withstanding they were angry when the ticket came up for a renewal of confidence. These weak Negro lead ers with a couple of two-cent jobs In the city laid down their arms and re fused to fight. Iiut this condition has changed for the great multitude of 5,500 Kegro voters is demanding a change. These petty leaders among the Negroes working in the City HaM dare not raise their voices and tell the Negroes to come on. If they do. they will be drowned like rharouh in the Red Sea.

He also pays his rent. I have had the highest respect for the gentle man of the National Mirror, but I iif that they have greatly deceived me by publishing this article without ascertaining the truth. Not only do I use this manner of denial, but I called Mr. Bailey up asking him to tepute the statement.
