li Pays to Advertise In the Rising Son VOLUME XI. The Astute Editor of the Plain Dealer His Allegorical Re marks Concerning the Rising Son. The Ptlntlng Press was invented In the 14th century hi England. One of the High Priest of the church In commenting upon It said; "God has given unto man a powerful weapon." Would to God that It shall be ever .used for right. During the time of Macanley the press be gan to take the place or oratory to put the truth before the people. The press Is on the same plane with ora tory whosoever slitill derive the people with this weapon shall be rendered as weak as a child. In all this there Is a twofold meaning le sine you are right and then go ahead. This brings us down to the allegori cal remarks made by the Editor of the Plain-Dealer. In our first premises we wish to state that we are not upholding the. woman wjiose letters we published, but we as the representatives of the people thought the crime committed by a so-called high minister of the Gospel was greater tliau the publicity of the let ters exposed by us with the signa ture of the woman attached. Where ignorance Is blibs; it Is folly to be wise. Therefore, where a man of high standing In the most solemn IKisitlon he can occupy lowers him self so much as to stoop, you know Mr. Editor of Plain-Dealer that his first step on the downward road has been taken. Now let us lay bare the facts you said you think or we think the wom an has a big heart, but why do you think so because when you called she gave you u years subseiiptlon and told you tne whole truth concerning the matter? Please answer? Mr. Plalndealer you say some call it tainted money. What do you call it? You accepted some of It for the sub scription of your paper. You also say, that class of persons who tell her tjiat she is right and aid her in fostering and bolstering up this kind of stuff for newspapers are no good and serve a purpose for scandal mongers, alley rats and night pirates, whose side aim is to WASHINGTON LETTER. The first appeal taken by the gov ernment under the law enacted by the last Congress giving the United States the right to appeal in certain classes of criminal cases, which was docketed in the Supreme Court re cently, will determine whether the Federal government, under the four teenth amendment, has the Tight to punish lynchers where the State authorities fail to net. The appeal, which is in the case of Robert Powell, grew out of the action of a mob nt Huntsvllle, Ala., in September, 1904. in storming the county Jail, which was guarded by the sheriff's deputies and a whole company of the Alabama national guard, and taking Horace Maples, a colored man charged with the mur der of a white farmer, from the structure and hanging him in the courthouse yard. Hon W. T. Vernon, Register of the Treasury, the silver tongued orator, has gone to Xenla to attend the com mencement exercises of Wllbcrforee University. Dr. Vernon is au alum nus of Wllberforce. Seiisatloal dispatches .were sent to various dally newspapers of the coun try recently, stating that Cyrus Field Adams, assistant register of the Treasury, was "masquerading as a white man." The dlspaj h carried its own refutation when it named a number of national and local "color- .if organizations with which Mr Adams is conuected. To those who h nersonallv acaualnted with Mr. Adams, and even the thousands who linv anv knowledge df his career, the charge - Is ridiculous, for they know that he has practically spent Thousand Negroes Read the drag such men as Hur'se down to her level, and take all the ready cash from her. Now Astute Editor of Uie Plalndealer yon flret began your article by misspelling the word "Son" Were you at the time of your writ ting thinking of the Universal Sun or were you thinking at all. If you remember, did you not ask how much was In it? Did yon not conn- to me and ask me to introduce you to the woman? Did I not tell yon my paper was not run in that man tier? Did I not tell you that my paper was supported by the adver tisements of the large white busi ness firms and the combined support of the honest Negro citizens. In what manner do we serve a purpose for the scandal-mongers, alley ra( ami night pirates? Because we are show ing them that a Preacher who would net in that manner was no better than they? Is that it? Please an swer? You also say let us all get- busy and do more In nilvancing something nlong business lines, and let Annie Jones- remain on Fourth with her filth. In part of this I agree, but was she not remaining on Fourth until the man you are championing came down there. , Mr. Editor we ah not deslrious of engaging in a battle of words with you. but we will say the mighty ocean has Its limit. "Thus far and no farther." The allu sion is, you live in Topeka. you are running your paper Into Topeka. to remain in Topeka. The Press is used for the exposure of dirt and the suppressing of wrong. Heretofore In all of your articles you have made a clean sweep for right. Has the Plalndealer left lis mooring? Is the Pilot at its head keepii.g the rudder straight. Let Newspaper men work for their own common good in fighting for th light of the people. the Plain- dealer run ToiH'ka, and let the RIs ing Son run Kansas City and let us as Editors get together and fight for right. his whole lire for the uplifting of the race. While yet In Ills teens he was appointed a teacher In the Col ored public schools of liOiilsvtlle, Ky., and also became the editor of The Bullet?!!, a paper published in the interest of the Colored race. A prominent colored man, a self-appointed protect ir of the white peo ple, called their attention to the strong editorials which Adams was writing in defence of the race and they saw to it that he was not re appointed as teacher the following school year. Adams then went to Chicago, where for twenty-three years he has, edited The Appeal a paper which has struck sledgeham mer blows for the race. He has also contributed many articles on the race questions to the magazines. Mr. Adams is a life member of the National Afro-American Council; he- was the first person to pay f.".u for membership. Mr. Adams was the first to become a life member of the National Negro ltuMncss league, of which organization hv. Is also trans portatlon agent and lie is president of the National Afro-American Press Association. Mr. Adams says that the statement that lie blackballed Mr. Wllkerson. who applied for mem bership In the Washington Philatelic Society, is absolutely false. He voted for him und for every other person who has ever been proposed for membership. The dispatch was evi dently the work of some local Ana nias for Mr. W. Calvin Chase, one of the District's most promlm-nt citizens and the editor of The Bee, who was charged as being nt the head of a movement against Mr. Adams, declares that there is no such movement n foot and Mr Wllkerson says that he does not even know Mr. for It Reaches More Homes of Colored People than any othei Paper KANSAS CITY, MO..

Mr. Daniel Murray, one of the as sistant librarians of Congress, is do ing a great work for the race In the preparation of an Afro-American Bibliography. HV finds that more than 6,0(10 different books have been written by colored men and that col ored men have composed more than 3.IMHI pieces of music. Hon. Ralph W. Tyler, the new auditor for the Navy Department. has made an innovation which Is very pleasing to the messengers in his burea'i v,ho have done flunkey work without, compensation. ' For many years It has been the custom for the messengers to shave the auditor, deputy ' auditor, and chiefs of di visions, and shine their shoes. Be lieving that the messengers' time should be given wholly to their offi cial duties, he called them before him and informed them that they could cut out the shaving and shining stiit, as they would not be allowed In the future to spend government time in iersonal service for the heads of the office. Col. Scott, Superintendent of thfc Military Academy, has made the con duct of the colored troopers stationed at that place the subject of a special reiiort to the Wur Department, which Is of Interest. Col. Scott says the conduct of the Negro troops since tjhey have been nt West Point has been admirable and flawless; Indeed much better than that of the whit regulars Who preceeded them at the post.
