Phone us your printing orders. There is a difference of opinion as to the advisability of the People’s Sunday Alliance's proposal to run a colored candidate for the school board. First of all, the question of the timeliness of the more is ques tio-jed. Then comes the propriety of raising the color question at this time when we hare the assurance that col ored girls will not be discriminated against whenever they come up to the requirements of the school board for teachers. The impossibility of the election of a colored candidate is granted and seme see in the defeat, exposu eof the weakness of colored roting strength, and consequent loss of prestige in public matters. The promoters of the proposal, claim for it that a colored man has as great right to run for office as a white man and should stand as well with bis own people as white candidates. They further claim that it will be a powerful moral agent if our rotes are cast together once, giving one another the assurance that i ur whole force is united for the benefit ef each, and at the same time serving as a pretest against the neglect and illtreatment which the race receives at the hands ef white pc.itical leaders. There is so much of truth in both positions that the (' cision of the Al liance will be watched with interest such as has not been given to any public move twfore. ' The thousand* of alumni and the public an vicing in inttreetia the! THE STATESMAN, DENVER, COLORADO. twenty fifth anniversary of Tuskegee Institute. At the i x-rcises last week there gathered together some of the greatest and l»st of both race*. Fe lications from educators and states men, contributions from philantropists and what is best of all, the most pro found admiration and loyalty from the people it is serving marked the twenty fifth mile stone of this the most wonderful educational work in I tbe world. Others excell it in wealth of buildings and endowment, in en rollment and past history, but life is accomplishment and measured by this standard, this Negro school is tbe most marvelous of the institutions of its kind. 1 A retrospective view of Tuskegee seems more like some Oriental story I than actual fact. Born of an idea of | a freeman, nurtured through years by I his own unaided efforts, it has come to be known the world over and has I brought recognition to its creator that I places him among great Americans.
