Some people's promises mean noth ing. * * * Giving advice to some people is sim ply a loss of time. * * * Away with Thos. Miller and his new Republican party. * * * Hurrah for J. W. Tolbert and the same old party. * * * Rev. Lowery's "Talks for Colored People" are getting quite nauseating, j * # * Some people accomplish their great est when they make great speeches. Nothing else to them. % * Some men! really control women, but the cases aie very exceptional . * * c Money is ? great power, but a good name is a igreater power, yet some people will exchange a good name for money. * * * Some white folks just can't stand to see Negroesj look prosperous, to say nothing abut being prsperous, but the better element delight to see it. * * * When police and sheriff take part in mob law ?s is said was the case in Oklahoma a few days ago, they de scend to the lowest depths of degre dation. j * * * Some people are so ungrateful in their make up that they very soon for/ get those who helped to make them so great as they (only) think they are. * * j Some grown women are more de structive to* young women than the boll weevil jis to cotton or any young man can evejr be, although some young men are boH weevil like. * * Georgia is still engaged in her pas time of b?ating and killing Nejjro women, buining Negro churches and lynching Negro men. c ? * One thingj Negro merchants need to learn is thkt if they would increase - i . .. <#9jfWa,D c*?z_ mfSS or sen^ns^aSS^te. AcP] vertising, however, is the shortest route. A square deal is a better in ducement ijor customers' return. * * * The days when parents used the ex pression tcj their children: "Come up as I cornei," have long since passed and we truist the even rare expression, "If you dpn't like my way of treat ing you, it takes but one step to put you off mjy place on the other fel low's." went with it. This is no time for such destructive teaching now. * * # "Talks fpr WThite People" would ac complish i^iore good than "Talks for Colored People" in some of our daily papers. Cplored people have been talked to jlong enough. They need some one hot to teach them lo be sub jective to jmistreatment, but some one to talk to those who give the mis treatment,; since the laws will not pro tect themj along with other people. * * * Many of the best people in Colum bia have expressed themselves as be ing disgusted with some of the recent "Talks fcf Colored People" appearing in a certain local daily paper. We are friendly toward the writer of these "talks," but, like many others, some of these Stalks" should not be talked. He would; do his race a great favor to write some "talks" to "White People" and if the publishers will not publish them cut them all out. ! * * * We cannot recall when there were such daysj that if a man spit in a Ne gro's fac?, he was not justified in showing ih some way that he was not being humanly treated. Not even in( the days >of slavery. Yet there is a Negro here and there who, because he knows-such is pleasing to a certain class, will teach such at the rate of so much jper teaching when paid by said class. Such an expense is too great upoji the race. * * * From what little we can hear and the glad jfacial expressions of those who are interested and are in direct touch with political affairs in Wash ington, good news, yes, real good news, will] soon be forthcoming from that great; city. That is to those of the old Republican Party, but. very sad news j indeed to the followers of Lillywhitisjm or the still newer Re publican p?rty. * * * We are Reproducing an article from The State I this week which contains some very! good "talk" to our white friends. Tjie speakers were, as you1 mil note, Mrs. W. A. Newell of States ele, N. C, and Rev/ J. C. Jtoper. These are the kinds of "talks" that are going to prove most helpful, and they are the kind of talks that should be. talked more to white people. It is beyond telling what some peo ple will do for the promise of a "po litical plum." Old man Tom Miller and all of his kind ought to go off in some secluded place and die. The race would fare much better during this crucial period. But we are told that he is to die very soon. In keeping with- his experience of several years as Secretary of the State Sunday School and B. Y. P. U. Conven tion and an old printer, Prof. S. L. Finley has produced for the above named convention a minute that we are sure will meet the approval of the entire convention and at a very mod erate price. We have a copy on our desk and have "o. k.'ed" it. The job did not cost the convention a cent more than was absolutely necessary, which shows that Prof. Finley is the right man for the position which he holds. * * * We gladly welcome The Black Dis patch of Oklahoma City to our ex change list. It's a highly edited, 8-j page paper, full of good and whole some news for our people. Of course, for Columbia and many other South jern cities, excepting Atlanta, Ga., and a few others, such news and editorials as it carries are too wholesome for certain people, even some of our own people writing for certain papers, would claim that sucb news would make them "shudder." But not until our people, and other people, can stand sound, racial doctrine, will our people see the light and follow the lead of the guiding star. No paper should be antagonistic be yond reason, nor should any plead for social equality, nor teach its people to be disrespectful, but the paper that fails to set forth the facts that its people need and according to law, should have a square deal under the laws that are made to (or so said to) govern all the people; a right to ex ercise citizenship at the poles; a fair chance for commercial prosperity and happiness; is a paper that is more of a liability to any race than an asset, and a paper that that race can well afford to get along without. No paper should declare its purpose as being for the advancement of its race unless it contends for and en ment A NEW INSURANCE CO. There is being organized in this city a new insurance company. The prime promoter of the new company is Mr. G. C. Forrest. Mr. Forrest is an old insurance man and is quite confident that as general manager he will put the new company over. The Indicator wishes for Mr. For-; rest and the. others associated with him unbounded success. THE ASSOCIATION OF NE GR? BAPTIST SCOOLS OF SOUTH CAROLINA. To Convene at Union High School. Belton, S.
