The editor of The Indicator extends his deeres’ svmpathy to
Dr. T. S. Gillmore of Rock Wili, S. C., in the death of :is devoted
wife, Mrs. M. M. Gillmore, wwho died suddenly lost Sunday night.
For some people to show respect for themselves (the ele
ment we refer to seem not to care) means only to make a benefi
cial sacrifice of utmost impoliteness and disrespect, under some
circumstances. L ’
The payment of honest debts would help many creditors to
meet their obligations, then too, it would save a few whose appe
tite or thirst calls for “white lightning” and other damaging
drinks, from damning their souls a;d lowering the standard of
their race. : '
As you go north or west or east in search of better living
conditions, Jet The Indjcator follow you with the news of your
home town ard community. :
The Indicator has 99c. that it is willing to invest into the non
profitable stock of the Negro State Fair Association of South:Car
olina. It will sacrifice the 99c. for twenty-five shares of this dead
stock but not a penny over. If there be enough interest
ed stockholders to sell that number we will assure you that we
will select & president who can and will bring to life the present
dead association or see that one igsorganized in its stead. But
be it understood that there is nothing in the gift of the present
fake association that will cause us to compromise with the pres
ent administration. We are above price or gift of office.

SOU'TH ALARMED OVER MIGRA
GRATION- OF THE NEGRO.
Memphis, Tenn., Jan. 31 (Preston
News Service)—At a meeting of the
Memphis Cotton Exchange here last
Thursday afternoon A resolutioh was
passed urging the Tennessee delega
tion in Cong-ress‘bo seek modification
of the immigration.laws to permit
entrance into the United States of
desirable foreign labor,
It is said that this action was taken
because of the pronounced labor
shortage in southern states. The
members of the exchange are endeav
o‘x"ing to devise ways and means to
cultivate this year’s cotton crop.
It is claimed that northern and
eastern manufactlirers are making a
tremenduous inroad on the supply of
southern labor by offering more at
tractive wages and spreading propa
ganda among Negroes to the ef
fect that living conditions are better
in the north, pointing out supposed
educational advantages, franchise,
and freedom from mob violence. This
propaganda is causing millions of Ne
groes in all parts of the south to mi
grate, to the north.
One speaker said, “It is true _'that
Negroes are going north by the
wholesale just now. I think theirj
fear of the Ku Klux Klan has much to |
do with it. Most of them do notl
know that this disgraceful organiza
tion exists in the north as well as in J
the south. Then the frequent lynch
ings strikes terror to the hearts of
the colored people, making them seek
a fancied refuge in the northern sec
tions. I believe if the manufactur
ers and leading citizens of the south
take a more active step to convince
the Negro that the southern white
man is his best friend after all, they
will soon ignore the call of the
northern manufacturer. We must do
something to stop this disgraceful
curse of lynching.
SENATOR CAPPER, OF KANSAS,
INTRODUCES MARRIAGE BILL
Washington, D. C., Jan. 31—A new
national marriage and divorce law,
with -enacting resolution proposing a
constitutional amendment was intro
duced in the senate last Thursday by
Senator Capper, of Kansas.
The bill seeks to make marriage
and divorce more difficult. This
would prevent many hasfy and fool
ish marriages as well as lessen the
number of divorce cases. throughout
the country. i »
Among some of the things to bar
hasty marriages the bill—application
for licenses must be made two weeks
before issuance of license, both part
ies must also submit health certifi
cates. The bill would pfevent the‘
mal"riage of feeble minded; of whites
and blacks; of' Mongolians 'and‘
whites;~and those affected with com
municable diseases. .
OUR PHILADELPHIA LETTER.

Jan. 27—Every few years we “o
timers” have our “modesty shocked”

be kicked into space. Now there

bobbed hair, and then along come

the flapper well, but Jazz is running
us mad. Its like any other crime
such as ‘“rum running” on the hifih
seas and plain “boot-legging” in the
grocery stores, restaurants and in the
babies’ go-carts. Some persons with
a strong commercial idea and g good
understanding of human beings—]ike
Barnum had—went somewhere dur
ing the ‘“dull spell” and “discm_:ered"
Mamie Smith and put some money
begind her in publicity and made
everybody proclaim her ag the
“Queen of Jazz.”
