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 proteoses 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. Doys of the press come up and stand with us. This ground is holy. W. E. KINO. ANOTHER NEED. The interchange of Ideas Is con ducive to progress; and among pro gressive men the opportunity for such Interchange is always welcomed. It 1b a fact that view point differ with the individuals concerned and that no proposition or condition ap pears in exactly the some way to and two observers. All Ideas and propositions have advantages and disadvantages. The greatest good to be derived from and given project becomes ap parent only after It has been thor oughly discussed by those who can see its advantages and those who see Us disadvantages as well. Men are interested in many and varied subjects but the leisure time and available money of few men among us will allow them to follow more than one of the courses which Interests them. But if it should hap pen that Smith, who studies and 'is interested 4n banking, should come in contact with Jones, who studies and is interested in wages, very soon tfcay both would have becomo better Informed and more proficient along their special fines and richer by hav ing been able to look into another subject no less interesting than their own by virtue of their contact with each other and the attendant inter change of ideas. Men need points of contact by means fit which the things which are theirs in common may be more sat isfactorily administered. In our own town, an organization which would perform such a service for men of nil callings and classes, would serve us to good purpose. It Is a fact that our business, religious and civic lives could be much Improved if our pastors, bus iness and professional as w '11 as others might meet occassional! and discuss the problems and conditions which affected each as a grotip and all aa a community. ' The opening of the new Community bouse offers a splendid ' meeting place for. such an organization. The only thing necessary to the establishment of Buch an organiza tion is the desire for further en lightenment and closer co-operation 01 the part of those who would prlflt most by it- - We all admit the need of a cl";er union of all of our agencies ml activities. But it is possible only as the heu-!i and leaders of tC.Ti seek definitely to establish it that it is possible. We are suffering ffom a lack of the energy and and Initiative that brings such Institutions into being. What has become of the old fash ionod parents who allowed their daugh'ers to have company to par ties snd went along themselves to see tr-at things went right? Mouth has never been more power ful than money. It comes mighty , near rultng this world. A year of concerted effort if, worth a generation of individval struggles. Bad luck beard most of the blame that belongs to poor management. AS WE SEE IT. A perusal of the average daily paper gives one cause for many observations upon the general American mind. One is thrill ed in one moment by fine spun theories and skillfully worded treatises upon democracy and loathing by an account of an actual happening instigated by proffessed adherents of democratic prin ciples recorded upon the same page. To us who view these ac counts daily and experience these quick changes of motion there comes almost involuntarily the feclinsr of the spectator at the races who favors the contestant who for a seeming eternity wa vers between victory and defeat, lie pulls for the success of his favorite but at the same time prepares his mind involuntarily for the defeat which some lack of executive ability makes as equally possible as his success. We fully believe that the democracy which is proffessedly the American ideal is obtainable and we scan eagerly and clutch hopefully, at news of such happenings as seem to prove that it bids fair to attain that ideal. JJut it often seems that the chances for this attainment are outweighed by that spirit of sel fishness which manifests itself in an unwillingness that this should happen. We believe with Thomas K. Marshall who says in a recent treatise on the aim of democracy that: "It is not worth while to make a world safe for anything else but democracy. Indeed, it is not needful. Special privilege will make the world safe for itself without assistance. I once heard the greatest of the present-day French philosophers say that the war was worth to France all that it had cost, in that it had made a real democracy where only the form thereof previ ously had existed. His idea was that France had long been a democracy only in name; that it had taken the war to make it one in fact. However cunningly and bombastically you may write your organic law and proclaim your purpose, unless both statute and conduct crystalize along organic brass and tinkling cymbal. I announce as the essential of a true democracy laws which confer equal privileges, guarantee equal protection and impose equal penalities. There can be none who may flaunt the law if the Government is to remain a democracy." Even those who are extremely generous in forming their opinions are forced to admit that America in practice lacks much of being in reality a democracy. And in the light of its proces sion of practices it is possible to wonder whether in its ultimate achievement it will become what it now proclaims itself to be. One may wonder thus and take into full account the fact that all progress is slow and that evolution makes itself manifest only through succeeding generations, not by the short spans of months and yearly periods. The actual adherents to democratic practices have seemgly allowed the forces which operate selfishly to so firmly entrench themselves, in organizations and combinations close to an integral factor in our national life that their removal will not easily be ac complished. In fact that public opinion which would maintain a closer application to real democracy is unorganized and its efforts lack effective direction. Now as never before American needs democratic practices, not preachments. America faces the fact that she is behind the enlightened world in education, even though her place in commerce is made temporarily secure by her wonderful scheme of production. She is also becoming more aware of the fact that her con cern for the needy abroad has run somewhat in excess of her de sire that her own classes and races be made free to enjoy that which she has zealously demanded for others. The lynching, tor turing and maiming of human beings by the hundreds a year gives evidence of a universally barbarous mind to which the dec larations of a thousand demagogues cannot blind an observant world. History repeats itself. And the permanence of nations de pends upon the firmness of the foundation stones upon which their governmental structures rest. Justice, universal and as complete as human efforts can render it is an absolute essential for the success of nations. That nation whose governing heads do not realize this fact, has, be cause of that lack, sealed its doom and guaranteed its descent by gradual but sure stages into a state from which it cannot easily remove itself. As a leader of enlightened nations, America stands unsur passed for her excellence in production and her generosity in con tributing to the common worldly good. But when considered in terms of the history of the ages she represents only a group whose experiment in government may furnish an added example of the inability of the human animal to pass beyond the idea of purely selfish practice into a full realization of the "each for all" principle. There are ten million of us who love America. We revere her founders and we are loyal to her flag. We are inspired by the makers of her history from the days of the earliest settlers who pulled her forests and fought with Nature for a place in which they might live in freedom, to our present day masters of com merce who total the value of their products in the billions of dollars and transport them over hundreds of thousands of miles of railroads. But we deplore the too constant reminders that this'success ciamo in Hroorl tho snirit. of divine sunerioritv in the majority of Ot VIIIU W v wiv '' " 1 v - , - - her people who too frequently by preachment and practice de clare that "might is right and power is everlasting." Wt hope for the success of the democratic mina wnicn teai i'es that "laws which confer equal privileges, guarantee equal protection and impose equal penalties" are the essentials of a true democracy; but we realize that without more skillful organ ization it cannot overcome its more organized opponent, mc oa fish mind ENCOURAGEMENT A recent bulletin from the from a survey of selected agencies recently it was found that while 19.33 per cent of unskilled Negro labor had joined the ranks of the unemployed, only 2.63 of the skilled labor was thus affected. "This fact" summarizes the the growing inclusion and letention of Colored workers and should act as an encouraging sign ed a foothold in the skilled group." Such a fact should serve an even greater purpose, it snouia furnish to parents and teachers a strong argument for the chil dren in their care that preparation for some special work pays well. Skill and ability have a peculiar knack of making them selves felt whether in trades or professions. There are many conditions which would seem to cause par ents and children alike to forego the sacrifice entailed in pre paration for a definite line of work. But such facts as this ar gue differently. It Is often true that "opportunities denied frcm without can more than be made up for by greater power and concentration within." In the -final analysis, it will be found that the economic world opens its doors to the prepared worker. This world is ruled by the power of money. Efficiency in the labor argues for profits to the capitalist. To the laborer it guarantees continued opportunity for gainful employment on a nearer approach to fi nancial stability. Our children should be urged to prepare. Such facts aa these are the strongest possible arguments that it really pays. The various fraternal orders of Texas could furnish working capital for big and paying businesses in every community in which the Negro public warranted them. We are suffering not so much from lack of capital as from the lack of proper use of that which we have. If the little city of Boley, can have a National Bank surely the Negro business men of Texas could establish a Guaranty State Bank. lines your system is but sounding FOR PREPARATION. Department of Labor states that report," is strong evidence of to the Colored labor mat gain SHALL THIS INJISTHK MTCKKIW An astonishing story tomes from Hie capital in the shape of a special letter to one of the New Yolk papers, i'liis is, in brief, that the Republican National Committee is preparing to disfranchise the Colored Republicans of the South in so far as participation in primaries and conventions is concerned. This plan, as reported, is part of a general scheme for reforming sonic of the national convention abuses, not to say scandals, as they crop up every four years regarding the Southern delegates. These delegates are out of all proportions to the size of the Republican vole "down South," ami it is proposed to tut down the delegates of 11 Southern States from 121 "Influenced4' in the old Mark Hanna style. To clean up that cono'ition it is is proposed to cut down the delegates of 11 Southern States from 1-1 to 70. That is proper enough, and in sensible relation to the actual vote in those States. If that principle were carried out, as it ought to be in the matter of members in the National House from the South, Congressman Tinkham's as yet vain attempts to obtain a just rcaportionment penaliz ing the refusal of votes to the Colored man would soon be successful. In this matter, Mr. Tinkham has the Const'itution of the United States with him, and that able ally will sooner or later, we believe, win the victory for righteousness and justice. Thus speak the 14 th and lath Amendments: All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of cit'tzens of the United States; nor deny to any person v'lthin its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws. Representatives shall be appointed, among the several States according to their respective numbers, counting the whole numbers of persons in ce ll State, excluding Indians not taxed. But when the right to vote at ;.ny election for the choice of electors for President and Vice-President of the Un'itcd States,, Representatives in Congress, the executive and judicial ofli cers of a State, or the members of the legislature thereof, is denied t. any of the malo members of such State, being of twenty-one years of ag- and citizens of the United States, or in any way abridged, except for par ticipation in rebellion or other crime, the basis of representation therein shall be reduced in the proportion which the number of such male cit izens shall bear to the whole number of male citizens twenty-one years of age in such State. The right of the citizens of the United States to vote shall not be de nied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of race, color, or previous condition of servitude. The Congress shall have power to enforce the provisions of this article by appropriate legislat'ion. So when States refuse the vote to citizens their representation 'in Con gress "shall be reduced" in proportion to such number refused not may he or can be, but "shall be. Yet It is not reduced, in the very face of facts so well known that they need no argument. But it Is the second proposal, as stated, that contains- the gunpowder. This provides that the Republican party will not recognize any vote in its primaries or any participant in its local conventions who is not also recognized as a voter by the local laws of his' State and who has not ac tually voted under the laws of his State. The effect of such a rule on the Colored man in the South woi .'d be deplorable, liaving the right to vote under the Constitution of 'he- United States, but ftcpiivcd of it by Ingenious ",nri wilfully oiti i iminatin'i State laws, ho would find hlmBelf also deprived of his primary franchise and his lieht to sit In local conventions by action of the great puny he has always regarded as his friend. And why? Because the State in which i:e 'ives denies him his constitutional and rightful vote. So he wouio be doubly disfranchised through no fault of his own. We do not know whose scheme this is, and do not care, it U un worthy the party that freed the slave, and we cannot believe that it will be endorsed by its national committee as a whole. Boston Post. SOl'TIIKRX COURT RELI NKS TO RRKAK FAMOUS ROSS WILL. ' (Editorial from Winston-Salem (N. C.) Journal, April 23.) While 'it sometimes happens that the Negro in the South fails to fare as well as the white man In criminal court, the record will show that in civil court the Colored litigant always gets all Unit is coming to him and sometimes a 1'ittle more. That this is true was again impressively de monstrated in Union county a few days ago, when the jury refused to break tho will of Maggie Ross. Miss Ross was a maiden lady. She lived alone. For many years her most faithful friend ond servants were Negroes who lived on her place. When she died Miss Ross left a will leaving her entire estate of a hundred thousand dollars to these Negroes. Relatives of the deceased took the matter to court on the ground that it was "an unnatural will." and with the assistance of the ablest counsel in North Carolina fought it on every laws of the State. But the jury, composed entirely of white men, brought 'ill a verdict in favor of the Negroes spilt of much leci'ng and prejudice existing in the ommunity. In its .stor ' if the tr.nl the Monro Journal tells how th bulk of the crta'e, real and personal, goes to Mittie Bell Houston, Robert 11. Hois, lit r fa' her, and Florence Tucker Houston, her daughter, while the old Ross home r-mcc, of 800 acres, falls to the possession of Bob Rou and Mittie Hell Houston jointly. All these are Colored. The will was made in 1!)1T ami immediately it was filed it was contested by relatives, the number of which finally grew to 109. Maggie Ross, the last survivor of the family, was un married and there were no surviving brothers or sisters or children of the same, and no first cousin, so, all of the 109 were second or third cousin- The lawyers attacked the sanity of the nated as "an unnatural will," but it of the jury that the devisor wanted faithful and loyal services when she and the jury decided that her wishes, ried out as she had requested. The greater temptation has ever been placed before a jury to break a will, but it made bold to establish justice for Negroes and write a triumph for the law. NEGRO LAROR IX THE SOUTH. The Georgia peonage and murder case is furnishing opportunity for the South-baiting newspapers in the North to indulge in an orgy of exagger ation of racial conditions ' in the Southern States .An attempt is being made to create the impression that such cases arc common in this sec tion, and doubtless many honest people in the North who are not familiar with the South or the relations existing between the white and blak races will be urged on to Indignation by these exaggerated reports and editorials which are without basis of fact. lr is the disposition of so many ill-formed Northern papers to "play up" such cases at Uiis when they are occasionally found, which helps to perpetuate the sectional feeling in the North, and to keep alive the false Ideas concerning the Negro's general status. The South has long suffered unscrupulous white employer, just as other crimes ocasslonally occur. The millennium has not yet arrived m the South, but in matters of em ployment between whites and blacks it is just about as near In the South as it is in the North, where whites are almost exclusively involved in em ployment matters. For the sake of the South's good name it is to be hoped that all the peonage cases in Georgia will be unearthed and prosecuted to the full limit of the law. The occasional cases in of the old convict lease system, a system heartily to be condemned. Geor gia owes it to the section in which it is a prominent part to stamp out the last vestige of this practice. In the meantime, let the Negro's sympathizers in the North found their sympathy more on facts, and Instead of magnifying his alleged injustices in the South, devote their attention to helping the Negro improve his ma terial and educational status. Trust him to get along with his white neigh bors satisfactorily In the matter of employment. Houston Post, from sush attasks, and since this sort of publicity seems to find a wel come among certain prejudiced elements in the North, It is not easy to say when relief will be found from misrepresentation. But he people in the North who have been in the South themselves and who know of conditions here first hand will not be influenced by such propaganda. They know that peona-e cases are a rarity in the South to day, and that when they are discovered, they are Invariably vigorously pros ecuted. They know that Southern people are Just as bitterly opposed to such practices as are the Northern people, and just as eager to prevent them. One might as well infer that murder was common and condoned in the North because murders are committed there, as to believe that the South looks with more or less indifference on the enforced servitude of blacks.

"Well, you bit you hnve told nie nil about your visit to auntie, and I would have to hear the same story up there. They are always Interested in the things you do, you know, und of course they'll ask you about every thing, und truly, mother, It wouldn't interest me to hear it a second time.'' I know I looked a little taken aback, for lie propped his position by a telling nppeal. "Vou know how you feel about hearing grand mother's stories over two or three times," lie said. 1 did know exactly howl I felt about it, but it came to me as a new no 'ion that a child of mine would have the same feeling about my yarns. I was silent, trying to adapt myself tn the novel suggestion, and he went on: "If 1 had been off anywhere, and came home and told you all. about It, you know it would bure you to bear me go all over the siiine thing to someone else." "No, it wouldn't!" I returned quick ly. "1 would be Interested to hear it again and again. But 1 suppose," 1 added more slnwjy. "I suppose that mothers are. different." "They must be different," he con ceded, "for 1 know 1 have often seen, you manage to get out of the room when granmother started to tell the same story that you had heard often before.'' Which was Just what I had done time and again, though to do my self Justice I had never announced to her in such baldly unflatering terms that I was bored by her repetitions. Not even in my salad days would 1 have dared that. I cannot make out, even nl'ter consideration, whether I had more outward respect for my mother than my boy has for bis, or if he is more honest than I was.
