' It is being fostered by the International Secretaries of the Y. M. C. A., and is to be observed by exercises and ceremonies calculated to bring more forcibly to the public mind the necessity for - more Saving. In public schools especially, this week is to be stressed and the children given encouragement toward forming those habits which will tend to make them habitually thrifty. Too much emphasis cannot be laid upon the necessity to our group of getting in touch with and fostering such movements. They will mean much to us- They tend toward In creased prosperity and so far! we are not suffering from an over abun dance of wealth. The lessons of thrift in youth will mean a generation of thrifty grown ups. National , Thrift , Week should be welcomed by teachers as an added opportunity for doing a service which shall become more and more apparent as time goes on. It cannot be doubted that such a week, if properly observed by us, helped by our leaders whose in fluence reaches all masses among us, will help much in spreading the doctrine of consistent saving and accumulation. Wealth is power, and any move ment which tends toward making us more accumulative should be eagerly assisted for the possibilities for good which it holds.

We would fail miserably in the giving of credit where it is due if we overlooked or failed to mention certain events which seem to mark a tendency toward a stand for more equable treat ment for Negroes in Texas. An inter-racial conference was held in Texarkana a few weeks ago at which time efforts toward their mutual betterment were adopted. They especially deplored lynchings and urged the active interest of all in allowing a more rigid adher ence to justice and a more hearty support of law. In commenting upon this conference the Express took the position that while the resolutions as such were commendable, there could be no tangible good to come from such a conference unless leading members of both races took an active interest in the support of its resolutions. , , ' Since that time, two events have, taken place which are worthy of mention and commendation in that they are indicative' of a more ardent desire on the part of, our neighbors, that law, order and progress may characterize their sections. At Arlington, Texas, a few days ago a Negro held as a sus pect in a case of criminal assault was saved from an almost sure lynching by the efforts of the local sheriff assisted by sev eral of the leading citizens of the town. They urged the mob to allow the law to take its course. The mob was stopped. An in nocent man 8 life was- saved. While no right thinking person can honestly condone mob violence, we have, in the past, been given to feel that public sen timent against it was lacking to such an extent that whenever it was contemplated and the victim was black, it met no real op position. According to our honestly acquired conception of human justice and ordinary duty it was no more than the duty of a cit itn which these men of Arlington performed. Yet, because of the infrequency of such occurrences we are forced to commend highly their action and even allow ourselves to hope that the sentiment which prompted them to act may spread among their fellows and that Texas, may finally distinguish herself for the sturdiness of her citizens in upholding the laws. Lynching is unnecessary. It bespeaks lawless propensities of citizens. It indicates lack of progress. It stands for disregard of established authority. It tends toward the destruction of the inalienable rights of citizens. It, in its final analysis, endangers even its perpetrators, in that the sentiment which moves them against others may at same time threaten them. Any attempt at its lessening means an attempt at rendering- more firm the fun damentals of government and the upholding of the sovereignty of law. , Texas would be benefited by the spread of such sentiment. Its leaders, will be leaders indeed if they but encourage and com mend such acts of plain duty. Laws are established by the citizenry for their protection and guidance. It is only the exceptional members of any citi zenry who, because of possible degeneracy, ignorance or delin-, quences, break or abuse them. Every law carries its own pen alty, also determined by the citizenry. It would appear as only just and proper that these laws which express or should express the desires and dictates of that citizenry be allowed to function. Texas for many years has occupied an unenviable place among other states because of its lynching record and even now. as the figures of the lynching record for the first six months of 1920 are made nublic its name appears among the eight states so far mentioned. - We heartily deplore and condemn lynching and lynchers and we beleive that more and more we are being joined in. that state of mind bv better thinkers everywhere. . We glory in the possibilities of Texas and we are anxious to aid in any way possible to us in its material development. The above mentioned instance betokened progress. We com mend it and its authors highly. . ' No less pleased are we to read the account of the discussion held at the rneetw of the Federated Council of church women last Friday, at which time they went' on record as favorincr bet ter railroad accomodations for Negroes. They strenuously op nosed the double standard of morality under which the men of he two races must live and condemned lynching, as barbaric and inhuman. ' We dare to hone that, such discussions may mean th'e spread of the sentiment which they exnress: that thv may accomnlish their maximum rood; that they may touch all classes of people for thev are tmly needed. . They tend to a truer Christianity. They make for reater freedom from discontent. They are no more than ordinarily right. Thev indicate a growinsr sense of justice and a desire for oroflreos. And truly we live in a country where progress is al ways desirable. - i . , ELECTION, RESULTS AND OURSELVES. In the campaign' just closed Negroes played an important part. They were a factor to be reckoned with and the reports from various parts of the country show that they are now learn ing to play the game as it should be played in a way caluculated to bring them tangible returns. . There were many Negro candidates in various sections of the country running for office. Some of them were elected, others were defeated. But elected or defeated in every case their campaign is responsible for the formation of a nucleus around which a real machine may be built out of Negro voters. Southern Negro candidates were defeated without exception. Such an outcome was by no means unexpected. But there can be no doubt but that there candidacies were instrumental in aug menting the total Republican vote and at the same time spread ing political information among heretofore indigent Negro voters who from now on will show themselves more active. The results, compiled by the Associated Negro Press, as they relate to Negroes are interesting. Dr. Jesse Washington, Texas' Black and Tan candidate for Supervisor of education was defeated. J. II. Blount of Arkansas was defeated bv a Democratic majority. W. A. Hawkins of Maryland and J. R. Pollard in Virginia were defeated. H. It, Price of Pollard in Virginia was defeated. But in Illinois, three Colored candidates for the leer''s't,re were elected. They are A. H. Roberts. W. B. Douglas and S. S. Turner. In Ohio, Henry O. Higp-ins was elected to the legislature. In Deleware Dr. Ilenrv W, Pikes was elected to the leirislature. In Missouri Walthall M, Moore was elected to a seat in the lower house. In New York a Negro was sent to the legislature. In New Jersey. Dr. N. G. Aleander was elected to the legislature. In six states our group will be represented in some branch of Congress. These are results to be proud of. These men were elected mainly because of the support given them by members of their own race, many of them voting for the first time since migrating to that section. . These results and the comments of political leaders on them give reason for us to feel that the spirit of co-operation among us is growing and that our power of accomplishment is credita bly. There is no doubt but that successful candidates, providing thought of the migration in terms of politics, that they would, if properly informed, make a noticeable addition to the Republi can vote of the states to which they had gone. It is proof also that given full and free opportunity for do ing so. the Netrro is as actively interested in the choice of his executives and legislators as are any other Americans. Even m the South he has proven in this campaign that he is willing and anxious to express himself by his vote. From the results of this campaign as thev relate to us we may be able to judge what is possible to us if only our sense of our duty to ourselves becomes Either ve must have our lative halls or we must see to it least disposed to grant to us the v.nicn is .uistly ours. In this section of America condition may maintain. It is confidence from our behavior in this campaign which shall hear ten us. for bigger endeavors in hitrher hopes in campaigns to romc. many migrants voted for these the contention of those who fully apparent. own representatives in our legis that we elect those who are at justice and equity in legislation it may be years before such a not foolish however to draw THE MIRROR OF WHAT MAISIVIXEI'S DEATH XEA.XS TO THE 5Et.R0. (Chicago Whip) Lord Mayor Terrance MacSwlney is dead! His mortal remains lie In state. His immortal soul wanders somewhere in the mysteries of eternity. As be "passed from nature hito eternity" the world gasped with him. As he choked out his last breath the men of Ireland, with gitnts of steel In their eyes and proxysmal darts of pain m their hearts, remained tragically silent,. No eulogies of death are being sung, no oratorical sweeps carry MacSwinejfs spirit to the gates of the great beyond. The spell of death, a death wrung and twisted from a brave being to appease tyranny and at the same time to arouse the slumbering soul of the tyrannized, binds his adherents and sympathizers. When news of MacSwiney's death American newspapers, Jew, white and wildered. Amazed at the courage and bewildered at the relentless profligacy pire. In calm reflection the American mat of civilization, should behold the moral victory of MacSwlney as a let son ia zeal, earnestness' and devoutnesa. Neither the appeal to live made by choice and tempting food nor the threats of death made by na ture's pains sent through MasSwiney's mortal habitat swerved this brave soul or altered his grim resolution. Like Kegulus, In the last speech . of We Carthagenians, MacSwiney's spirit Like Martra Luther upon his 99 theses can do none other, so help me God.'' . Black men of America, with beaten backs and stultifying souls heard his cries. Those spirit cries piercing of the Irish martyr have harrowed up quickened his pulse and steadied his the future. Black men have received ideals or leadership. The black men, witnessing a steady declination of his legal rtxhU. a rising onrush of newly inspired hatred against him and the old avenues of livelihood slowly but surely closing to him, stands in need of no "Calm of Gilead" to soothe bis ruffled spirits. He must be filled with the same spirit that caused the great sacrifice same spirit that was starved from L'Overture and Terrance .MacSwlney. The calm, unfaltering, unflinching leadership will awaken 'the dormant spirit of crushed black people. The leadership must be from black people. MacSwlney, an Irishman, led the Irish. He even refused to speak English but mastered his native Gaelic tongue. MacSwlney wanted to see ether great people at all hazards- The freedom of black men above personal suffering, hardships and miseries. The .death of' MacSwiney according to all expectations will operate as a terrific dynamic in freeing Ireland. MacSwiney knew no compromise. His fearless soul was undaunted at the power of the great kingdom upon whose possessions the sun never sets. No one expects the death of one expects to see the American Negro granted the much-vaunted liberties of the stars and stripes in a single day. We know and the world knows that a battle for liberty is not like the flight of electricity, a transition along the line' of least resistance. It is a struggle that like the remission of sins requires the shedding of blood. The mentally and morally perverted leaders of American Negroes have been traveling along lines of least resistance, where neither great outlays of moral nor mental energy have been expended. They have captained silent parades in protests to lynchings, they have played the part of chair man to "resolution committees," they have fathered many volumes of boru- basiac petitions. How many have died in the interest and cause of NVgro liberation? Since the days of Nat Turner the "leader" have confabed and contrived in' the easiest way in feeble attempts to calm conditions, but conditions are steadUy growing worse. The mass of Negroes are repudi ating clamouring clown-like leaders. MacSwiney exemplifies the type the masses desire. MacSwiney's death in an armed rebellion would have teen life lost (n ignominy. MacSwiney's .voluntary severance from life in a cause for hu manity gives us the criterion and the precedent for real virile leadership Away with the field glass and spy-type of leaders. Give us men of cocrar and men of might. . MacSwiney, we pay tribute to you. 4 - -EGRO AJtf ESTEY;" WHAT OF IT! -An adroit appeal to American prejudice was made last week to defeat Senator Harding for the presidency by putting out a story that one of ancestors had African blood in his veins, or. in other words, that he wai of Negro ancestry. We are not told how remote rubh ancestry was- We strongly suspect that bad his ancestors been traced far enough back it would have been found that . the story was true; not only of .Senator Hard ing, but every man and woman wherever he may be found, who prides himself upon being and honestly believes himself to be "white. For Holy Writ states, and science verifies the statement, that "of ONE BLOOD God hath made all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth,' and hath determined the bounds of their habitation. Just when tnh "one blood" parted from the parent stream and flowed into such diversi fied channels that it lost its original characteristics and became, for ex ample. "Caucasian blood." of itself rich and ennobling, and "Negro blood," of itself poor and degrading, science Upon this important decision the world waits with abated breath. Now since the story of Senator Harding's "Negro ancestry' as started by a learned professor in an Ohio college, it must be that be had in mind Harding's descent from Adam, whom many contend with much to support their claim, that he was an African, and if not an African or "Negro." he was certainly not a white man, but a Colored man, A daman of Adam meaning in Hebrew, dark or reddish. Then, too, it is contended by other learned servants that the Garden of Eden was in Africa. All of which would seem to bear out the learned professor's somewhat startling asser tion, quite shocking to American ears, you know, that among Harding', remote ancestors, very remote, he means, were persons of "Negro blood.- But granting that it were true thai not very far tack among Hard ing's ancestors were persons of Negro blood, what of it? If. even grant ing that such a strain of blood is a course. The Monitor' does not admit, he bas risen in spite of it to eminence and usefulness, ought not that fact be taken as a credential of intellectual strength and moral worth . which should be considered an asset rather than a liability? Even were it true that Harding was of "Negro ancestry." there would te nothing to be ashamed of in that United States of America when men the fact that they are of "Negro ancestry;" became of Its attestation to the truth that men of character and righteousness can rise superior to conditions that would hold them down and that after all the thing that counts is real manhood and womanhood, upright and upstanding. The Monitor. FOOD FOR In a recent issue of a white daily appeared a brief editorial captioned, "An Example of Good Citizenship." In this article the editor lauded the behavior of members of our group who, co-operating liberally with police authorities, had been mainly responsible for the capture and Imprisonment o a fugutive criminal who had murdered a white woman in Beaumont. According to the story it was a Negro sec tion foreman who seized the fugutive while armed, after having first no tified the police of bis presence in that a Negro gave the first information of the crime and affiled the first clue to the assailant - Another Negro is said to nave told the police of the actions of the fugutive before and after the deed had been committed, in short, Negrooa were in the large part responsible for the arrest, and will no doubt be responsible for his conviction- Such a story, while not by any means an unprecedented happening, should furnish the lynching South with some food for thought, if of sane and fair thinking It is capable. An idea born of distortion and misrepresentation and fostered by South ern propaganda, would have it appear that Negroes are In the main, given to the perpetrating of crime and the shielding of criminls. Such has been the false idea" that the South has essayed to Imbed, within the public mind. and such also has been the. argument attempt to excuse and Justify the abhorrent behavior of lynching mobs Our protest against the crime of lynching has been invariably met by the evasive admonition from our adversaries, to prevent the commission of crimes by members of our group, which lead to the action of the moo. If the story of the. conduct of those Negroes in Beaumont has no other merit, it certainly refutes the damaging lie which the South has sought to engrave upon the public mind, namely, that Negroes wilfully PUBLIC.
