Gee, my pa's a reg'lsr booster
Hc'11 got moBt folkn skint by a block
He boost o much fvr the EXCELSIOR
'Till It most give ma a shock.
VKit you bet she soon recorvered
When he told her what they'd done
When that awful Dengue (Fever
Had the folks all on the run.
She, then asked pa to toll about it
While ho smoked his old cob pipe
Smiling like a great big apple
When it's good and red and ripe.
"Well, I'll tell you. miss Samanthy
Tlout this EXCEL8IOH insurance plan
Evan though I wasn't book-learnt
Twaitn't hard to understand
Polks Just got the Dengue Fever
The doctors say from skeeta bite
li,t when their bones began to ache 'em
Take it from me it was good night.
'En fer eight weeks It was a ragln'
Insurance companies was hard hit
Hut you bet the OLD EXCELSIOR
She didn't holler nary bit.
There was Coefield- and our Strickland
They Just kept on smiUn' through
And they paid the other thousands -Just
as they did to me and you. .
There's the Smiths, the Greens, the Williams.
Johnsons' Browns and then the Jones
These are but few of happy members
To whom they paid twelve thousand bones.
Here are Negroes building business
Fer that little boy of ours.
En fer me I ain't throwln brick bats
I'm Just handln out some flowers.
It woudrf : took right to my neighbors'
How could I ever face my child .
If while the race is marching upward, "
I was trying to block the aisle.
For what's the use of school in Willie
If you don't provide a plan
So as he can use his learnln'
When he grows up to a man.
My hat Is off to the OLD EXCELSIOR
The way she weathered the Dengue storm,
A race backed by such institutions
Soon will be free from every harm.
So hence forth let it be our mission 1
To praise God both night and day
If he calls and I am out, dear.
Send him up the EXCELSIOR WAT.

O. O. P. VOTRIIS IN FLORIDA REVOLT.
(By A. N. P.)
JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. . 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
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

time a special report or sr. n. j.

pendent and chairman of the Com
mittee on Ways and Means was sub
mitted and rejuvenated. Plans were
perfected for an enlarged organization
and a closer cooperation of all the
Newspaper Men and members of the
printing trade throughout the race.
It was at this same meeting that Mel
vin J. Chlstim was selected as a spe
cial representative of the Press As
sociation to tour tne united etaies in
the Interest of the organization. At
the coming session of the Nashville
meeting, -the Newspaper Men are to

former plans of standardizing the ad
vertising rates. They are also to
adopt the Code System, which Is be
ing prepared by the chairman of this
special committee, Mr. A. I Holsey,
of Tuskegee. Among other matters
of vital Importance to be consider
ed, there are many that are on the
slate for this February meeting, so
that the attendance is expected to be
the biggest In the history of the or

urged to carry in their massed-head

that Garvey's plant undoubtedly has
