We are in n • ceipl of a menu card of a dinner ten dered our good friend, John E. Brio of New York, whs for thirty years ha weilded a trenchant pen in the white and colored press of the nation undei the Dom de plume of “Bruce Grit ’ Readers of this paper have had an op portun ty to know the man by hb works and can appreciate what an in fluenee he has wielded during til ling p ."riod of service for right and the race. The dinner is a deserved compliment to hi n. Especially di we delight to see that he is a proph not unknown to fame among the whites as well as among us, for th presence of Hon. J. S. Clarkson and Hon. \V. E. Chandler at the dinner can only mean that the man is hon ored for his work. It takes rare courage to stand on the firing line for a cause like ours. Thirty years of warfare against foes without and schisms and weaknesses within would discourage any but the most persistent optimist. But is is for the lesson that it shows that we would use this dinner. Truckling sychophancy characterizes so many Negroes and has such advo cacy among us that we would urge all our people to consider by what different means this position of honor has come to John E. Bruce. Though THE STATESMAN. DENVER. COLORADO. he has been a consistent j artisan he ban never shunned a duly tie owed bis race. It has come first. Through liis contributions to the New York daily press he has done a great work for the cause of the freednem. He i has never abridged a right or coin promised on principle. Where crav ens fawn and fools beg, real manhood first deserves and then insists upon its due. The foundation of our whole industrial syst> mis merit. At times it is so far biniid by inconsistencies that it do s not shine . ul but after all if the Negroes of the country would show their appr elation of their gn a a est newspaper writer they can Is st do it by following his example in high ideals, unflinching courage and pa tient devetion to improvement within the race.
