It be gins to look like the Colored vote is about to break with the "Lily Whiten" in this State. While for ome time the spirit of Independent political action has been growing among the people of our group throughout the north, there has been no noticeable development along this line In the south until re cently when in this city the subject began to be discussed among the lead ers, which led to a meeting a few weeks ago which culminated into an organization that is attracting the attention of the citizens generally, and the new organization has adopted the name Nero Independent Political Club. Hon. N. K. McGIII, attorney, who was president of the Harding and Cool'dge Republican Clut of Jacksonville during the last national campaign, was chosen president of this independent club and he is as zealous and enthusiastic in this move ment as he was when following the dictates of the O. O. P. The new ' organization Is hailed by the Negro leaders as a Bpllt from the old Republican organlzan with which the Negro vote of of the South has been so long identified. A mass meeting of Negro voters will be called at a future date, ac cording to George E. Taylor, tem porary ricretiry, when permanent or ganization will be affected. It la also planned to extend the organization throughout the state. I Althouarh the future influence of the -split is problematical, it is predicted' that the Jacksonville movement will j eventuate in a national organization! of the Negro vote which may. enable! It to make Itself felt in the. general elections. I Mr. N. K. MeGlll, Negro lawyer,' who Is temporary president of the organization. In talking to the meet-1 ting proposed as a slogan: "Better, ter understanding Detween tne races here in the. South." The prime purpose of the new party, according to Its leaders, is to har monize the relationship of the Negro and the white man. "The Republican party has done the Negro more harm here In the South than any other agency,"' Mr. McOlll said. "It has made enemies of whites and Negroes who were formerly friends. No greater injury could be conceived. This la the seat of all our troubles, . political, civil, and in-1 dustrlal." He proposed the indepen-j dent organization which was formed as a means toward forcing the Negroes from the G. O. P. yoke. I That the masses of our group here' in me soum are reaay 10 accept me leadership of Mr. McGIII and his co workers is evident from the fact that every person attending the recent mass meeting enrolled as members Other meetings will be held from time to time when all 'who wish may attend and learn of the progress and sup port of the movement NATIONAL NKGRO SPRKSS MEETING FKHltUARY 7TH.

Carrey's dally had a brief and stormy career, twenty-six Issues hav ing been published. Publication of the first Issue took Garvey aid his staff something like three weeks, even after the plant bad been Installed. What Garvey will do with the plant, which is a white elephant on his hand, is raise one-fourth of the price paid for it. A peculiar feature of the busi ness management of this plant is that the "Negro World," Garvey's weekly propaganda organ. Is still being print ed downtown, in spite of the fact that Garvey's plant undoubtedly has facilities for its printing, and could have saved money and supplied work for the force In his plant y having it printed at hia own plant. This would be a shocking piece of mis management on the part of anybody but Marcus Garvey. From Garvey the public has learned to expect anything In the line of blunders and mismanage ment. - GARVEY'S "DAILY NEGRO TIMES" ivrrs. Rape's Prise niaaderer Discredited by Yet Annther Failure.
