"Reign of Terror" Taken up by Re publicans; Senate May Investigate. New York, N. Y., Sept 80. After five years during which the Invasion v. ilia miaim ui iiaiu ujf UIIILW , States Marines was shrouded In sec recy, silence has been broken by James Weldon Johnson, acting sec retary of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored .People who was sent to Haiti by that or ganization to investigate. Mr. John son's oharges have been reiterated by Senator Varren G. Harding; in his campaign for the presidency and the State Department has had to reply to numerous editorial attacks, made by newspapers to which the N. A. A. C. P. Investigation supplied facts. In brief Mr. Johnson's Indictment of the Wilson administration's course in Haiti recites: 1. That the island of Haiti Was seised by I'nlted States Marines and that In Ave years some 3,000 natives were shot. 2. That the Hnitian assembly was dispersed by force at the order of an American officer of Marines and that the Haitian republic has been virtually overthrown. 3. That a convention was forced by the United States upon the Hai tian Government changing the con stitution of Haiti, so that Americans could - purchase and own land there. 4. That the invasion of Haiti and the conduct of Haitian affair, had been unduly benevolent to the Na tional City Bank of New York, whose vice-president, Roger l' Farnham had represented the State Department in Haiti. 5. That the salaries of the Presi dent and other officers of Haiti were withheld because the Haitian Govern ment refused to turn over the Na tional Hank of Haiti to the National City Bank, alleging that an agree ment previously made had geen tam pered with. Amonk the newspapers which have editorially demanded explanation, from the State Department of the oc cupation of Haiti are the New York Evening Post. The Globe, and the Tribune. The Secretary of State in reply to Mr. Johnson', charges pnblished sev eral statements announcing that Gen eral Lejuune, Commandant of the Ma rines and Admiral Knapp had been sent to Haiti to investigate. He also Insisted the intentions of the United States in Haiti had been "benevolent." Mr. Johnson thereup replied, asking for a Congressional investigation of affairs In Haiti and charging that the Investigations by General Lejeune and Admiral Knapp would probably re sult in an official whitewash. Latest advices to the National Association for the Advancement of Colored Peo ple Indicate that a Congressional in vestigation will be held as a conse quence of Mr. Johnson's charges. Japanese Question Causing Much Concern in U. S. (By A. N. P.) Los Angeles, Calif., Sept 30. The Japanese situation continues to be a matter of considerable' concern to the United , States. California with signed to exclude the yellow races her recurrent efforts to pass law. de keeps the question agitated. The At tention of our- group Is being , at tracted particularly at this time be-, cause of the frank admission, being made by men prominent in public life, that it is a question purely of race and therefore of prejudice and justifying It upon those grounds. Governor Cox while currying favor In California bursts forth with this ebullition: 'God Almighty provided that the fathers of America should be white men. Those from other shores who do not subscribe to that doctrine have the privilege of go ing back where they came from. Senator Harding, with suave diplo matic mien, says quietly, that which promises much more ill to the yel low man. He says, "We favor such modifications of our Immigration law. and such changes in our internation al understandings and such a policy as regards those who come among us as will guarantee ' the citizens of this republic assimillabllity of alien born." A)l of which the thoughtful mem bers of the race are turning over carefully in their minds. We have been disfranchised and discriminated against Dut it has been done Indirect ly by states. From national viewpoint we have been presumably full fledged American citizens. If the Japanese come in large numbers and found themselves pp against the same white man's prejudice, they could not be lynched and maltreated because the government and naVy of Japan would be standing behind them. Therefore they had better be kept out The Chicago Journal says: "The Japanese ae not an Inferior race.' They are a great race.) The Chinese are a great race, too.

Mr. Boyd will spend twenty odd days in Japan, visiting all the Im portant centers, and from time to time will furnish the Negro newspa per Association with data of .impor tance. On account of the expense of cable messages all reciprocal news will come to his office in Nashville to be relayed to the different papers. Fairland Citizens Do Not Want Addition Opened For Negroes.

CHICAGO PRIEST SAVES Can any'Negro citizen of Dallas conscientiously claim that he has done his full duty to the city in which he lives and the group of which he is a member, while Oakland cemetery is in its present condition? It now presents a sorry picture. And its appearance is a blot upon, the general reputation for order and civic pride which has always char- acterized the people of Dallas. That cemetery is as much a part of us as are our churches, homes or schools. , ' Its care should affect us as much as that of our homes and yards. Its present state, due to our lack of attention, reflects upon us. We cannot argue true reverance for our dead if their final resting places are unkempt, over-grown with weeds enclosed by dilapidated wire fences, having no well defined roads of entrance and exit and in a state of general decay. We are solely responsible for this condition. Jt affects only us. We alone are the ones to be concerned about. , Will the Colored people of Dallas allow such a condition to exist any longer ? ... .Will they allow this spot, which, by all means should be well kept and systematically arranged, to reflect upon them as parts of the leading city of the South. . .' There are 40,000 of us in Dallas. An annual contribution of ten cents (10c) each would create and maintain a fund which would care for the installation of roads; walks and fences and pay a responsible man to look after the whole place. , We owe it to ourselves and our city to see that this is done? The "Dallas Express" stands willing and ready to foster such a movement, properly organized. I It feels that ministers, heads of lodges, and all other clubs and or ganizations should weld themselves into a working organization for ac complishing this improvement. It concerns our whole group in Dallas. ' A certain amount of space in our columns each week will be devoted to-the furtherance of this- 4rtoveniat. . . ' We will gladly receive and publish any individual suggestion or news of any movement organized for Cemetery Improvement. Kindly address The Editor. Be sure that your communication will be gladly received. OUR BIRTHDAY Twenty-seven years ago to day the first issue of the Dallas Express was given to the Negro reading public by W. E.

Moton. principal of Tuskegee, rebuked M. Moonev. white, editor of the Memphis, Tenn., Commercial Ap peal, before an audience of seven thousand persons here recently. Local promoters had gotten up the meeting of white and Colored per sons from all sections of the South to hear Dr. Moton, and a delega tion from Memphis came down, in cluding the editor of the Commer cial Appeal. In the course of his addreaa Mnnn. ey, following the custom of Southern ers, usea tne words "darky" and ''nigger." Following him was the main address by Dr. Moton, and the great educator made the audience gam. when In his onenina- remarks. without any feeling, but in clear bit ing language he informed Mr. Mooney 'Ithat the time had passed when the Colored people appreciated the word darky' or the word "nigger from white men." Mooney was surprised, for no Colo red man had ever called him down In that way before. Without paus ing, Dr. Moton launched into the, main portion of his address, which was the same In many respects that he delivered In Baltimore, Philadel phia and other places. This town is not far from Elaine, Arkansas, and many persons believing that Dr. Moton had spoken too frankly feared for his safety. No dilllculty was experienced.
