"There has been some criticism concerning iny using the term . 'mod est' in some of my talks to our sol diers,, but .1 am .euro there, could be no misunderstanding or criticism If the term were . understood in its proper-relationship. ' "I want to declare to you that I spoke frankly to those who were In a position to do us the most good, and I did not hesitate to call at tention to any injustices that were heaped upon us. General, Pershing treated me with the utmost courtesy, as did the otber commanding gener als. Inasmuch as much of my mis sion was in the natum of confidential, there are things that I am not even yet at liberty to say, but I am sure they will come out in time. "In the work of reconstruction be fore us, we must all work together. The best white people of the South are deeply concerned about the wel fare of our race, and in a short time you will hear much concerning the conference of leading white men who met in Atlanta, Ga., who pldged themselves as "Crusaders" to bring to pass the fruits of the true spirit of democracy, and Justice."

While Ohio has a "Civil Rights" bill, it is de clared that It is not iron-clad enough, and hence the new bill seeks to overcome the deficiencies, for in many sections . of the state, particularly Cincinnati, Dayton, Springfield, To ledo, Zanesville and Hamilton of the larger cities, there is the most wan ton abuse of civil .rights. The legislature of Ohio is Republi can, and the governor, James M. Cox, a democrat In a leading editorial in The Cleveland Advocate, the lead ing Race newspaper of the state, and which has always supported U: Republican party, is the declaration that unless the Republican legisla ture passes the bill, the Colored peo ple of the state have, come to the parting of the ways. Never in the history of tae state has there been a more united effort to out over a bill. "Whatever Is done," said one leader, "Ohio Is go ing on record.
