Through Julius W. Fields we are informed of the great success Alza mon Ira Lucas, the teacher of new ideas along the lines of health and heredity, is meeting with in Los An geles. It was only a few years ago when he came to Denver an unknown enthusiast and was dubbed a crank and grafter. It is a source of satis faction to the editor of this paper to know that he has made good, that he has had the courage to persist and triumph over sneering critics. He deserves success for his unflinching determination no less than for the soundness of his principles We shall delight to honor all such pio neers of thought and we look forward to the time when all people will wel come them and give freely the honor which Alzaraon Ira Lucas has wrest ed by sheer pluck and merit. Just as the serious illness of Bish op Abram Grant of this Episcopal District has been of deepest concern to his friends, his church and tbs race, so will it be a matter of rejoic ing now that he is out of danger. To many men it comes to bo honored by preferment at the hands of their fellows but to only a few does the greater distinction fall'of honoring the men or organization they are called upon to lead. Among these latter is Abram Grant THE STATESMAN, DENVER, COLORADO. The Negro race is producing deep scholars and cultured gentlemen, who take a place as men who are masters of the situation, but it will never again present as its champions in the world’s arena the hardy Negroes liorn of the reconstruction. Many learner! judges and kings ruled over Israel but only the wilderness could pro duce a Moses and a Joahna. So with Bishop Grant. His great ness does not rest on scholarship. His intimate knowledge of the needs of his race, his sympathy with their aspirations, his greatness of mind and heart in carrying the day against odds make him one whom the race cannot afford to lose. We are glad of his re turning health, may he grow old among his people and live to sen the fruition of his work begun in the dark days.
