Despite the (act that the gene
rai topic of disjcussion these days
is "hard timesj" our City Repre
sentative. Re\f. D. P. Bishop is
/bringing aboujt satisfactory re
sults by wayj of getting new
subscribers. jVe find too that
the bulk of business being done
is Among the tumble people like
ourselves?the; same ciass that
renders the mjost support to all
other businesses, as well as in
the church. This class can al
ways be relied upon and this is
the lesson which ail business
men have learned.
These people don't mind pay
ing the pitiful bum of $1 50 for a
year's subscription to a paper
published in \ interest uf their
people. It's 4 large number of
the other classjwith which news
paper and other business men
have the most [trouble in making
collections of honest bills.
We welcome! these honest and
reliable humble class to our sub
scription list ait ail times and we
congratulate Rev. Bishop on se
lecting the honest ones.
We solicit thie continued co-op
eration of our subscribers for
Rev. Bishop, j
Aside from being a good solici
tor Rev. Bisfiop i s a worthv
young Baptist minister w h
would render valuable service to
a good church in need of such a
? an.-?Manager.
And still thcf end is not yet, in
the disclosure)*4 to be made since
the veil was t >rn aside at Tulsa.
But for the riots, we would never j
have been able to gather an ideai
of the amount pf money that Ne
tuiate and hoard in;
litors have withdrawn over!
one million dollars since the riot.
Ths officials of this hank are re
ported as sayijng: "We did not
know that thj? Negroes had so.
much money jin our banks until
they started drawing it out."
There are eight banks in the
City of Tulsar If the Negroes
had over one million on deposit
in that one bajnk, it will be safe:
to estimate that they had two
million dollars an the other seven.
All black folks do not put their
money iu baqks. We are won
dering how much more could be!
added to this Amount if we could
have gone into! the old soeks and
what not that were hidden in the
in the homes of the black folks I
of that city. One Negro report
ed that the looters got $15,000.00
out of his safe; $1,001.00 worth
of Liberty Bonds were reported
lost in another rooming house
and when w? add to this grand
total the diamonds and other
valuables in the way of jewelry
which has almost a full valuation
upon it, we will find that the Ne
groes of Tulsa could have cashed
in a cool $4,000,000.00 and never
have touched j their property and
their business.
There are two big lessons to be
learned from! the financial dis
closures aboujt the Negroes in
Tulsa: first, ttyat it is a bad prop
osition for bfinks to permit any
sort of disorders in a community
that would fijighten away from
their doors jso much capitol;
secondly, thej Negro should see
that as a group we have in most
every community through our
combined weaflth, enough money
to do most j anything. The a
mount of money per capita, that
the Negroes ! have in banks will
range a little higher than that of
the average (white man for the
reasoa that the white man is
busy putting; his to work. The
Negro with his lack of confidence
in co-operative effort is permit
ing the whitej man to do with his
money what! he is afraid to de
with it hinbself. The lesson
should come ihome to Negroes in
every community in America.
We have served our apprentice
ship in poverty. We have reach
ed a day and a time when we can
put across any sort of financial
program if we will but add tc
our dollars little more confidence.

Opposition to mob violence was ex
pressed in a resolution adopted by
the board of directors of the Richland
County League of Women Voters at
a meeting in Columbia Tuesday after
noon. The league instructed its sec
retary to send an open letter through
out the State, making it known that
this organization is opposed to mob
violence and lynching and in favor of
allowing the law to handle all crime.
The resolution was prompted by the
lynching in McCormick county Sun
day, when hundreds of citizens took
the law into their own hands, despite
the faci that court was to be in ses
sion the next day.
