If there can, be such thing as co-. operative rivalry among different in stitutions of the sumo kind and char acter, It is belug evinced by the churches of the city in their con tributions to the New St. James. Since the beginning of its dedication exrcises each church1 of the city, and vicinity on Its alotted night, has exerted itself much In trying v to iitMu more uuiu ub oreuecwssui h iiuve dou'e and establish a record which its successors cannot break. There can be no doubt but that St. James is being helped by thl? spirit- But to our minds its result will go even further. Wo do not feel that It is foolish to hoie nor unreasonable-to preaume, that theV speedy completion of thii project because of the increased co operation of the members of Dallas churches will act as proof positive and warrant enough for the assump tion by each of them thit. Just as ing speedily possible, j.'.st will it work in other fields of endeavor. We are prone habitually to lamrnt the lack of opportunities provided by us for our children when they finish ochool. We blame ou lack of opportunity for the fact that we cannot borrow the necessary funds easily for helping our scattering business. We bemoan our lack of business and , facilities . of variolic kinds, never realizing that we alone are to blame for-ir lack of them. . The same spirit which the local churches ara manifesting toward the completion of St. James if carried out by a group cr groups of their members, would accomplish many , things whose lar e now feel. Moro than ontt we have attempted to call public attention to the fact that combined bank deposits, annua1 expuunurca iur wit? iiecessmett oi lifo iinrl fh rmrsuit nf rfiri.tlnn nf the 42,000 of us in Dallas 'ur,s well into millions of doll-irs each year. We have not ye! learned tint there is a way to spe'.d this same sum of money so that every dollar of I. will tarn its portion to be used for our own betterment. ." There has been nothing mlracu h us about the building of St James ' t iji ch a; i the tho co-operation of Uie local : churcHcs. Members and pastors of local 'burches simply . felt that their dollars invented In that building would bring them a satis factory return In terms - t i ' civic beauty and church progress, a id they contributed them- ... In like manner there would be nothing miraculous in having groupa of those same members and citizens come to feel and know that equal amounts of money contributed for the purpose of opening business houses of various kinds for supplying their needs and those of their neighbors would bring returns In dollars, bus iness opportunity for their children and advancement of our group gen erally. We mi.Mbt well engage more freely In this co-operative rivalry. nd sometimes we feel that we e liflp d niil(p tlio world safe tr fconivSins that d: 'id r.pt exii-.t.

The increased amount o.f attention now being paid to the health need3 of the Negroes of this state is gratifying in the ex treme. During the past few weeks we have noted an increase in agitation for the provision of quarters for Negro tubercular pa tients and .an appeal for a wider dissemination of the gospel of rood health.' . . - An investigation bv a representative of the Texas .Public)' Health Association disclosed the fact that no, where in Texas, was a place provided for the care of Negro tubercular patients. Since, that fact was made public Harris County has appropriated $12,500 for the establishment and maintenance of a ward for Negro tuberculars and a bill has been introduced in the legisla ture and approved by the Senate Committee providing for the ap uronriation of $300,000 for a state institution for Negroes sim ilar to the one now being maintained for white tubercular sub jects at Carlsbad. - " , .These signs of increasing zeal are .encouraging. We predict the passage of the bill providing for the -estate lishment of the Negro Sanitarium. When that institution shall have been established, the state will to some degree have done its duty. But it is not to be supposed that such ah institution will efficiently fill the demands upon it of every portion of the state. Counties and cities must also do their share.. Hani s County has already seen its need and done its duty sin this regard. Why should others las badly in need of it as is Harris County,' fail to do likewise? - : . ; - ' . ' When we sneak of counties but we think of our own county and city particularly for their need of such facilities is more apparent. Vital statistics compiled and prepared by local physicians prove that in our own city, twice as many Negroes die from this disease as do wnue peopie. But there has as yet been no provision made for their isolation and care. " ' " This lack of provision has meant that m-cases where the financial condition of the family in Which the disease has made its appearance has not warranted th making of special provision for him, the patient has been, in many cases, left absolutely to his own devices, usually to wander about in public places, spread ing his germs and menacing the public, health. Such a course, has been the only one to open to him for he has no recourse of the public hospital facilities for ailments not contagious, and in the tubercular hospital recently built by the city; segregation ordi nances have made his entry impossible. 4 We have wondered and are still wondering why such a condi tion has been allowed to maintain. We have' waited for the ful fillment of promises to rectify it as made by our local adminisrl tration but so far we have waited in vain. We were led to believe that in the erection of Woodlawn Hospital, some provision would be made for all tubercular subjects but such has, not been done. We do jiot know why. We do know however, that the failure to make this provis ion has reacted with detriment to health has suffered' a8 a' national outcome. , . "Public health is the foundation upon which reposes the hap piness of the people and the strength of the nation. The care of the public is the tirst duty 01 tne siaiesman. ; The City of Dallas is remarkable for its progress and atten tion to its own interests. But in this particular regard its lack of foresight in regard to its health seems without adequate defense. Dallas needs to make provision for its Negro tubercular cas- es. As long as it ians to do so it ians snort oi us maximum, ef ficiency in safeguarding the health of its public. And what ap plies to Dallas, in this regard at Jeast, applies with equal force to the majority of cities and counties of Texas. WHAT WILL HARDING DO? - Much concern is, being manifested by nembers of pur group in various sections as to the real attitude which . Harding will take toward them. . , ' ; ". ' . . ' ; From the tone ot the expressions 6f many" of them their an xiety seemfe to be centered in the number of offices to" be filled by the appointment of Negroes rather ' than '.the greater good which may be accomplished by .legislative action in their be half, . " We believe, absolutely that Negroes should become govern mpnf off irinls hv nrmoiritTYient and narticinate in this way in their own governmentBut we do not believe that their anxiety in, this regard should overshadow their desire and urge that a sort of consideration which would result in a more far-reaching form of benefit to them, be given by the incoming administration. It has always appealed to us that the end of all of our polit ical striving should be 'the greatest good for the greatest num ber of us." And we have urged and are still urging it. We hold no brief for "political peddlers" and our backs are turned squarely to those among us who would make personal gain predominant in their political appeals. " t To a jrreat extent our present lack of political power has been due to the fact that too many of our leaders have sought for personal .loaves and fi'es while their, neighbors and their child ren after them were forced to pay in disfranchisement, segrega tion and legalized prejudice for their bargains..' We do not necessarily decry the insistence of members of our group for recognition by appointment, commensurate with their pol uc U deserts. But we do feel that at the same time and evt witi: more alacrity, they should declare themselves for anti-lynch laws and others of the sort which would more nearly allow us all to participate in our government by making 100 per cent citi zens of us. ' . ' ' . . v, We do not know yet what Hardng wih do. But we have ap RnliitA rnnfidenrG in his srjirit of fair: ess. We hope to see Negro Federal office holders but we do not nope to see tnem to tne exclusion lief from unbearable conditions. . We glorv in the ambitions of all of our office seekers but we would have them understand that we do not feel that they should think that, should their ofi'i.;e holdin? propensities be gratified, the interest? of the group Will be ANOTHER SPEAKS OUT ,.-. ' Unusually frank expres; ons are being noted from time to time in the columns of Southern papers wh regard to the treat ment of Negroes. The latest of these has appeared in the Oo lumb'a (S. C.) Rec6rd 'commending Governor Dorsey of Georgia for his prompt protection of Neprro. farmers of Hall County fiom the attacks "of "wite canpers." It says in part: . The Record is gratified by the announcement of the press as sociation's dispatches from . Atlanta Wednesday that Governor Hugh Dorsey is investigating race trouble rumois in Hall coun ty. The governor is a trained prober, and his is one of the level est heads in Georgia on common justice and what the farmers of the Cracker State are prone to call "hoss sense." Reports from Hall county indicate that a lot of bolshevist residents of that vicinity are threatening Negroes and that the latter are leaving in fear of raids on their homes. This- sort of news might be expected from Russia or from some uncivilized nation or country, but it oukht r.ot to come from the bpckwood.j or from the front pasture of the great and progressive State ; of Georgia. .',': ; ' ,. ' . Incidental to the world war's ending, we have 'suifered greatly from wild orgies of lawlessness in many forms. In com mon justice it should be said that the Nesro race, as such, measured up to its war duties quite as creditable as did the white race. It was even freer of the slacker-class than were the hyphe vintori nnita nf trio ntripr rnrps i.'iivino the conflict. Tt has been here for hundreds of years, and race have largelv predominated in baking the oreaa ana rearing the children of this generation in the South, it looks as though it shouldn't be necessary to, say that it should be x rotected from harm'. ' , ' ' . : ' ' ' . There has been too much chicanery about the race question light her at home. The la'-abiding Negro is as much entitled to protection of the law ir. the South as any man in it, and Governor Dorse is tha man whori we believe will seo that he gets his dues in that regard in full measure. ., - . in the interest ot puonc neaitn we include all of those in Texas, ' ' Dallas generally and the public' oi our ciaim w icjsioiauyo ' . , satisfactorily served. considering that members of thatf THE MiRROR OF I mini in nniKiinKi r ruDLiu urimuiN y ii FEDEBAL OFFICEBS FOR SKGROES. (By William H. Taft.) in Boston Transcript. The favorable prospect for growth in Republican strength in the South has been commented on in these columns. The promoters of the movement in the different States are many of thera former Democrats, and tbey are very Insistent that It must be a white party, in the sense that it must be in control of white men. They say that if the Negroes, whose voting power is negligible, ars permitted to share in the management the movement will fall. They admit that the Negroes are denied their electoral rights, which the Fifteenth Amendment was passed to secure, but they press the point that there is no remedy for this, and urge that tho only hojio the Negro has of securing hla right to vote Is in developing his intelligence and eco nomic utility, so that individual Negroes of character and intelligence may gradually have accorded to thenwhat is theirs now by right. They would welcome a division of Negroes between the two parties because it would end the danger of a solid Negro party which is the ghost often raised to frighten impatient Democrats back into the fold. . Immediately upon Mr. Harding's accession to power a phrase of this question is likely to arise for his consideration. Vacancies will occur in the local Federal offices in the Soutthern States. In many districts will be found Colored men competent to fill these places so far as intelligence, character and experience are concerned. These men have always been Re publicans, and often the only Republicans within the district. Their friends will urge That the Negro of the South Is entitled to the recognition which such appointments will be. The vote of the Negroes of the North is es sential to Republican success, and the party should not abandon their brethren of the South when such 'an opportunity for encouragement Is at hand. The promoters of the white Republican party in the South meet this plea with two vigorous objections.. They, say, first, that the psycho logy of the situation is that the great mass of whites in every town that is not wholly Colored will bitterly resent having to do business with a Colored' man in an Important official position and that this fact will much interfere with efficiency and dispatch in the doing of the public business. They do not undertake to justify this condition, but they say it is a fact that no argument against it as the result of unjust prejudice will remove. Their second objection to the policy of making Negroes Federal officials in the South is that such appointments will injure the cause of the Ne groes themselves in the South; that. the best friends the Negroes have in the South are the good, liberal white Southerners, who are using all their effort to help the race, but that they will lose their interest and become alienated of the race question is thrown actually into Southern politics again by such appointments. They concede the justice and virtue of Mr. Roosevelt's demand' that the door of hope should not be closed to the Negro by making him practically ineligible to official preferment for which he is fitted, and admit that such recognition 3f the Negro race as Americans by appointment of competent representatives to public office is a real and useful encouragement. But they maintain that the offices conferred should be in Washington or In the North, where the feeling upon this point is not so strained or sensative. They point out that there are offices of dignity and Importance in Wash ington to which representative Colored men can well be appointed and which they are entirely competent to fill, and that such appointments are far more useful in giving the Colored electorate a sense of official partici pation In the Government than merely local appointments in the South. Appointments of this national character will create no popular prejudice obstructive to 'the smooth discharge of the public business, and will cot freshly incite racial feeling against Negroes or intefere with their material progress in the South. The, issue thus made between the "lily white" Republicans and the so called "black and tans" will come before Mr. Harding soon after he takes up the reins of power. If he shall be able by his decision to secure Re publican parties of strength In the various Southern States, even if he disappoints Negro applicants for office in the South, because we can be very sure that Republican white legislatures of the South will be quick to do Justice to the Negro in the division of the school funds and that Republican executives will do all that 1b possible in the suppression of lynching. t HOUSE BEAPFORTIOyjIF.XT. The bill for tne reapportionment of members in the house of representa tives at Washington will not effect Montana., It leaves this state with its present two congressmen.. It is called the Siegel'bill, and increases the membership 48 to a total of 483 and carries a provision recommending a constitutional amendment limiting the final total as population grow to 500. It 1b evident that it would be better to cut the total number of mem bers to 250, but no doubt it is impossible to get congress to agree to such a plan. v ' Under the Selgel bill northern states would get an increase in member ship of 34 and southern states of 12. It would appear that in this respect the north, was doing well enough, but the fact is that southern states for a long period have enjoyed representation in congress and in the electoral college to which they are not entitled. Representation in based npon dis franchised white and black citizens, people who are lawfully entitled to vote but not allowed to do so. There has for a long time been agitation to have this evil remedied, and strong demnnds have been made upon this congress to take from the southern states the representation to which -it is not entitled, but if the Siegel bill passes, Ahln evil will not be touched. It is contended strongly by many who have knowledge ot conditions in the south that the Solid South would be quickly broken up by the growth if a big Republican .vote if this condition were" done away with by congress. . However, the traditions .of the south for fifty yars or more, the Negro question and other considerations are bound up in it, and thus far these haVe been strong enough to maintain the BtatuB quo. In this policy, an injustice to the rest of the union is perpetuated, and a problem that cvent ua'ly must be solved is shirked and the cure of an evil postponed. In time this issue will be forced into the arena of action, and the south compelled either to allow the diF' anchlsed voters to vote ,or be itself divested of the representation in congress and the electoral college that It holds by falsity and fraud on the rest of the United States. Helena (Mont.) Record. "JSEGRO IN POLITICS. Member of tht Race Comments on Mr. Taft's Editorial. It i3 a sad commentary of the times that a former President of the United States can publicly give sanction to southern chicanery and Injustice, as Mr. Taft dees in the Public Ledger on "The Negro in Politics." Mr. Taft still labors under that oil delusion that the Solid South can be broken up by catering to "lllywhitelsm." Hayes tried it and failed McKinley tried it and failed. The opportunist always will fail in the end. - Mr. Taft once said that tho new state constitutions in the South in dicated a turn for the better, i Those constitutions are all violations of the spirit of the constitution of the United States. Nobody denies that the in tent of the framers of the new constitutions was to disfranchise the Negro. Will Mr. Tafv argue that to make stealing logical means to make it moral T We live under a government which stands supposedly for fair play, for equality of opportunity, for man's chance for a man. There are some good white men in the South, like Prefesvor Kerllng, of the Virginia Military Academy; but they are Iik trees on a Sahara, and they C Jinot modify the severe general Judgment of the section. And some day men like Mr. Taft will learn that temporizing wln nothing. We must take a sand for right, for Justice, for fair play, tor- the coDiiitutior., and ttand by it.' The ideal must not be lowered, frit rather the people raised. ' If we would spend a little money trying tt enforce the fourteenth and fifteenth amendments and not be thoroughly partial to the ' eighteenth amendment, I believe our i.oral sense would be better satisfied. Mr. Hard ing will make a g.-ve mi lake, a mistake which will most assuredly be resented by the Ne?io, if he pays any attention to Mr. Taft's advice on the race question. It ill becomes a former Prsidet of the nation to apoli glze for pat injustice and pave the way for future injustice to 12,000,000 of his fellow citizens. , ' . , ' . ' , J.

We' are In need of every Imaginable atrency to help carry on social service work in our city and state. We need a reformatory . for delinquent girls and the daily press informs us that plans for such an institution have al ready been Incorporated in a bill which will be presented to our legis lature. Let us then as women pray that. Ood will so move our legisla tures that they may see fit to puBh this measure to completion and at the same time lot us get busy and do what we can to show our Interest In this needed Institution. A few duys ago Miss Alecla C. Drown, directress of social welfare work in Ihls city called together a few women of our group and asked their opinion of a Day Nursery. She told thfin that she hud already ob tained permission from tho city to of fer the use of a room in tho new community house, in course of erec tion on the park, at tho cornor of Hall and Central Avenue. She also proposed to equip the room with all sumtary and necessary equipment from funds which has come into her care through the Negro Welfare Board and the cm iJunus Cheer Fund. She had a budxet suggested by an ex perienced worker and has ascertain- the required amount needed to main tain a nursery for one yenr. She then asked the ladies present, if tbey thought their group would do its part in maintaining a Nursery, if it should got started. Hhe was enthus iastically assured that they would. Now. then, It Is up to the citizens of Pallas, to accept and run the Day Nursery with all the encouragement and co-operation that our friends can give. We hnve any number of mothers, whose husbnnds have forsaken them and their children, who am working and who pay two-thirds or more of their salary for the care of their chil dren. Then there are other mothers say ing at home, who need to work as the husbund cannot earn enough to pro vide for the necessities of the family. They would gladly go out a day or two, If they hud a safe place to leave their children. Let all the women of Dallas come out and meet Miss lirown at 8t. James Church, Friday night, Feb. 4th and help Isy some plan whereby we may get this Day Nursery 'and start It to running. Then, we will have at least one of the many agencies which we sorely needed. Surely opportunity Is knocking at our door shall we not take heed? Dear Aunt Pat: I go with a boy and he Is always wanting me to be kissing him and petting him Do you think I should do It? Yours, GENEVIEVE. My dear Genevieve: My answer in this case would be "most certainly, no" a girl only cheap ens herself by allowing undue famil iarity. Always think of your body as a "temple of God" and consider any tampering with it a sacrilege. My mother used to say: "If you give an inch they will take an ell."
