It is a plain, every day, sen sible, conservative newspa per, which trims no sail to catch the passing breeze; flies no doubtful flag: It professes a . patriotism as broad as our country.. Its love of even handed justice covers all the territory oc cupied by the human race. This Is pretty high ground, but we live on It and are prospering. Boys of the press come up and stand with .us. This ground is holy. W. E. KINO. t SATURDAY FEBRUARY 5, li2l. MIlMVIXTKlt , GRADUATION. No one who witnessed the gradu ation exercises of the Mid-winter class of the Colored High School could fall to be impressed with the appearance and performances of its members. The program well balanc ed and of appropriate length was highly enjoyable. 1 The particularly noteworthy fea ture of this Class was that the boysH outnumbered the girls by one. Sel dom ever ha this occurred before in a' graduating class of our local high school. It has always seem ed that there has been less incentive . hold out to. boys or that the press of economic circumstance has been such that the male members of classes Live dropped out before graduation. It is to be hoped that this class is to mark the beginning of a long succession of classes in which boys will be Tell represented. Special credit Is due the parents o these boya for Vrir accom plishment In seeing to ib.iir remain ing . In school until graduation, for in the final analysis they are cespon Bible for having made this possible to them by their "unusual exertion encouragement and provision for them. The annual report of the Stan dard 'Life Insurance Company shows that It has assets of over 1 million dollars and has written over $20, 000.000 worth of business. Such news is highly encouraging. This business, the first of ?ts kind to be owned and controlled by Negroes is the direct outcome of the desire of members of their , group for a pro. tection which ws obtainable in no way other than b" pooling their in- terentB and forming a company of their own., Twenty million dollars worth of insurauce means an approx imate 20,000 homes and families which will be enabled, in case of the death of the heads of them, to car ry 'ut their scheme of progressive existence. Truly we are moving for ward and the end Is. not yet. ,: It Is to be hoped that. Negro workmen everywhere will ' not be 8l'w to realise that jobr are worth all of the diligence, m-M and skill possible to be shown n their pres ervation. Unemployed men ' are in creasing dally. One who studies to remain employed is both thr'Jty, and wise. The Negroes of Tsxas Cannot, but be deeply impressed with the action of the legislature In providing a tubercular sanitarium for their tu bercular patients.

The Dallas Express on last Monday received the following communication through mail: "Dallas, Texas, Jan. 26, 19211 "The Dallas Express, Dallas, Texas. "We are rapidly Orpanizcng the Famou3 Ku Klux Klan , in this City to keep forever inviolate the Constitution & make this a white mans Country also to Protect both Races humble and ignorant. We are Convinced that Ne groes like yourself & staff are Enemies of Poor igner ' ant Negroes trying to incite them to Rebellion no one ' pays any attention to it but ignoront Coons like your self now we propose to let you do business provided you . tell the truth and cut out trying to incite trouble be- tween the Races if you Keep it up there Will be" a Ne gro, massacre now don't think We Don't Know you We are here to keep Order, and much better hang Coons like you than kill thousands of ignorant Coons Don't let Us hear of any more boasting lies in your paper the Press of the Country has not taken it up yet but We have and believe us Weve been Coon hunting before Yours for Law & Order even though it take Death." "KU KLUX KLAN. I ,It would seem from the above that our contention that the Klan meant nothing constructive for American justice - and de mocracy has been proven. An agency for law and order would have declared itself differently. Would have given its location so that its contentions might be answered. Would at least have fol lowed the dictates of courtesy and chivalry to the extent of hav ing penned its missive in ink; would have threatened us as a last resort not paraded itself and its motives so blantantly before public view. . ' ' 1 The Express is an institution devoted to the information and development of a distinct group of American citizens. It believes first of all that the true American heart and conscience is dedi cated to the advocacy of justice and freedom of opportunity. It believes that America is progressive, constructive and that in its heart of hearts it' abhors the proscribing, maligning influences which have from time to time operated to thwart it of its fulj, expansion. It knows and realizes that when any American group is left defenseless open to the depredations of those . to whom the knowledge and realization that the Golden Rule ; is a safe guide for all men has not come, that group. is indeed unfortunate. The Dallas Express prints the truth. It is a newspaper and it prints with equal impartiality the occurrences that are construc tive and those that are not if they possess news value and per tain to our group. Our editorial columns are given to the. inter pretation of these events in terms of their actual value to the group which we represent and the country as well. We are not agitators. But we do stand by the truth as we see it and protest against injustice, proscription and their, agents with all of our power. We have said and we still say that we believe that the Ku Klux Klan is unnecessary. Does not tend toward the advance ment of American ideajs. Should not be allowed to spread Its pernicious doctrines further. Tf t.hnse who have favored us with this communication, have kept up with our policy as evinced by our news articles, the way they are displayed and our editorial opinion as it has appeared from time to time they must indeed have peculiar notions as to the stuff of which agitators are made. , We challenge any member of the Texas public to show a sin gle Negro agency in Texas which, during the past year, . has equalled the Dallas Express in promoting "Health Week, Thrift Week, Fire Prevention Week, Home owning, Educating Children, Obeying Laws and Discharcrirx? Their Full Duty as Progressive Citizens Among Negroes." If this is agitation then we are agi tators. . On the other hand we have spoken at length about lynchers and lynching, we have unceasingly called for the further awaken ing of a public sentiment against mob violence and all forms of lawlessness together with their agencies. We have claimed that any and all extra leeal means of dealing with crime are tacit con fessions of the public which allows them, that the laws which it has made are useless and ineffectual. We believe this to be the truth. We make no excuse for having so spoken. We have believed that the dictates of law and order were served most efficiently by the agents and organizations sanction ed and instituted by the whole public for, that specific duty and that such organizations declared themselves according to the com monly accepted means of expression rather than by anonymous communications. . , . We would be r -uch rlissappointed to find that the City of Dallas and the State of Texas with all of their sane, fair-minded and justice loving citizens could or would sanction or encourage an institution which expressed it;s thoughts in such terms as those used in the above letter, ani showed motives so far removed from courtesy and justice. ' We believe in law and order and in this belief we have held ourselves eager to welcome and enthusiastically support all agen cies established for their furtherance. We unhesitatingly con demn those agencies which do not foster them. We believe that such a policv is manly, within the law, purely Ahierican, just and honorable. We believe absolutely in the Golden Rule "As ye would that men should to you, do ye even so to them." The pub lic is the judge of our correctness or error. V THE MIRROR OF PUBLIC OPINION 1 THE HABDLNG CABINET. We do not care particularly as a race Just who are the individuals selected by President-elect Harding to be members of his Cabinet, so long as they are strong and stalwart Americans. To any such men or group of men can be safely intrusted the welfare of the Nation for the next four years. There is no statesman at present- in this country who. if he is patriotic, will not be guided by fixed and cardinal principles. He will recognizer 1. That the American Constitution and its. Amendments, Including the Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments, be enforced both in letter and in spirit. 2. That America can : not remain half politically slave and half po litically free any more than It could ' remain half slave and half free in 1861. 3. . That the disfranchisement of the eight million black citizens below the Mason-Dixon Line is a cancer gnawing at the vitals of the American people. . v 4. That the twelve million American citizens of color are entitled not only to vote, but the right entailed thereby the right to have that vote honestly counted. 5. - That officially there Is but one American people largely white but considerably Colored all equal Americans before the law. 6. That mob law has become the Impending menace of the Nation. 7. That Jim-Crow not only can not be permitted in the departments at Washington, but on interstate 'carriers and in all other relatlonu under the supervision of the Federal Government, and are contrary to the Con stitution and hostile to the unity and futurd of the Nation. 8. That taxation without representation' is tyranny. 9. That , the Colored citizens of the country must have their share, of representation, both elective and official, in order that they may become part and parcel of the American body politic. , 10. That capable Colored men are the best spokesmen of and to their people, either at home or abroad. 11. That the American Republic owes its Colored citizens a' debt of gratitude and positive, practical, sympathetic encouragement in the way of political recognition and in the protection of their civil rights, because, not only they as Blaves gve two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toll in the building, of the Republic, but as well because they have loyally filled the breach In each of the Nation's wars; because by their unparallell ed progress since slavery, not only ineducatlon and morals, but in material possessions, they are entitled to all the rights of citizenship. The Cabinet members. of the next Administration who does not recognize these thugs as a cardinal and immediate program to be followed will be antedattd, reactionary and a source of danger to the welfare of the Nation. There looms upon the horizon of the world's peace the conflict of color. America would do well to bind her Colored citizens to her with chains of steel. The new and coming generation of their race who know nothing slavery, only as the perdition of their fathers will be content with nothing less than full American citizenship, with equal American oppor tunity without the let of hindrance or any man. Any man that President Harding may have for his Cabinet who fill these qualifications are acceptable to us. New York News. MAKING GOOD. When any man or group of men would claim that Negro ac complishment has failed to keep pace with his ' opportunity for progress the following figures may serve to prove the error of such a statement. Richard Spillr-ne in commenting on it says that 'in all history there is hardly anything to compare with such progress in little more than fifty years of freedom : There are now in the United States 12,000,000 Negroes. They constitute one-seventh of the working force of the country. Of the 3,000,000 men, jBQO.OOO are farmers and 1,000,000 farm lab orers. Eihty percent of the wompit are in necessary home and industrial life. . " " - - ' .

In 1916 the number of houses hod Wrpnrprl tn fion.000. ti e oDerated farms to 981,000, the businesses to 45,000 nd the wealth to $1,110,000,000. . Seventy banks are directed by Negro financiers. Over 400 periodicals are owned by Negroes. They, even conduct an "Asso ciated Negro Press. . ' . Four hundred thousand Nepoes were called to thi colors du ring the recent war and 200,000 of them saw service overseas. Tlwo.ia ipsa illiteracy nronortionately. the Chronicle says, among the Negroes in 1921 than there was among the white pop ulatiou of the United States at the time of the Civil War.

Those familiar with political strategy will see nothing unexpected in the decision against increasing the number of congressmen. When the po litical field marshal wants to hold fast to that which he has, when over taken by fear that his possessions may be pried from his hands, he pre sents a claim for much more than horse-sense could allow, and then begins to haggle for position. If that Is not what the house at Washington has just done in substituting the amendment to the apportionment bill for the constitution it looks like it at this distance. The silent treatment has been administered so faithfully to Congress man Tinkham, of Massachusetts, that the public is etill unaware of the strength behind his fight for a reduction in the number of members of congress- But the elementary fact In strategy that TJinkham has been chocked off at every possible opportunity makes it appear that there was some force behind his campaign, to assess the constitutional penalty from southern congressmen 'from states where Negroes have been and are still disfranchised. The supplementary fact that the house has by formal vote abandoned the plan to increase the house ' membership during the next 10 years is another faint indication that Tinkham may have had considerable punch to his campaign to cut down the number from the south. The moral cowardice thrown into the foreground with striking relief when chosen representatives of a democratic people desert the bulwarks of democracy and political freedom, imbedded in a constitutional guarantee, may be admitted the greatest weakness of democracy. Nothing in the his tory of the United States, is so prominent as the defiant disfranchisement of millions of American citizens in the south. Nullification of the consti tution by Bourbon race prejudices is as pronounced in Negro disfranchise ment as in the act of secession and assault upon Sumter.' The emanci pation of chattel slavery stands out in history with no greater effect than thla disfranchisement Or, put badly, does not this disfranchisement of Ne gro citizens stamp the emancipation proclamation with the seal of Bour bon repeal? Congressman Tinkham has apparently won some sort of vic tory, but it may prove one of thoun Pyhrric conquests which strikes a blow at freedom and American democracy. Pittsburg Leader.

One lady remarked that she found little of Interest to her in the paper and suggested something- special for wom en, something of Interest to her class.

Southern white people are fond of telling us that they are the only real friends of the Negro, and Booker Washington and some other men of color have said much the same thing. Nevertheless, the friendliness of the Southern whites for the blacks is a good deal like the frier. Miness of peo ple for domestic animals; it is conditioned on their, docilHy. It might, not be Impressive if a Northern man gf M'It, but it is im pressive nen Federal District Attorney Alexander of Georgia says that wrongs are being perpetrated against Negroes in- this state which "run all the gamut from the meanest of petty cheating to deliberate, plotted mur der." He is a Southern man and a Democrat The South has complained bitterly in the jast few years that it was losing its labor. The lot of the Negro in the North is not especially en vlable.' but it is any wonder that the Negroes try to come north in view of Mr. Alexander's statement? He adds that "comparatively . little effort is being made by the proper oiflcers to end these conditions.'' In his interesting essay on American crime and police systems Mr. Raymond B. Fosdlct says a Southern ofllcer of the law told him there were three grades of homicide: If a nigger kills a white man it's murder; if a wWteman kills a nigger, , it's Justifiable homicide; if one nigger kills an other, it's Just one nigger less. Yet Georgia claims to be the most progressive stato in the South. It contains the most enterprising and progressive city in the South, if there is one thing more than anotter that Southern men claim 1t Is "chivalry" especially among women. Y-it the flogging of women white women, at that in Georgia prison camps was found to be practiced after one con spicuous case of brutality fifteen or twenty years ago had drown un pleasant attention from the wirld to Georgia. Evidently chivalry is a mat ter of etiquette something due to women of your own social class, but not due to Colored women, of course,, and not due to white women who are not in good society.-'-New Port (R.

Walter Wbite in the New Republic gives some heretofore unpublished facts about the tragedy of Ocoee, Orangs County, Florida, last Election Day. The story given but at the time was that , two Negroes namei Mose Nor man and July Perry had tried to vote when they were not qualified, and on being refused bad flourished revolvers; the lynchlngs that followed wai thus satisfactorily explained according to certain Southern ideas on the subject. But Mr. White found that the registration books showed that Mose Norman had qualified and registered and was entitled to vote. "He was unpopular with the whites because he was too prosperous he owned an orange grove for which he had refused the offers of $10,000 several times." July Perry was foreman ' of a large orange grove owned by a Northern white man." "Tbi community felt that the J n na(1 belonged to a white man." So "a mol formed, went out and surrounded the Colored flttlement, applied kerosine. burned twenty houses two churches, a echooluouse, and a lodge house." Two members of the mob were killed. Perry was wounded and 'ater lynched. A white man citizen of Ccoee boasted that fifty-six Ne groes were "tilled. Among those burned to death were a mother and her two-wcek-olc? baby.
