PETITION TO THE MAYOR h'egro Citizens Have Protest Against "He Clansman" Ready. | VARIOUS REASONS ARE ASSIGNED It Is Alleged That Thomas Dixon's Play Stirs Up Racial Strife and Docs Not Accurately Portray Con? ditions During, Reconstruction Days. A delegation of negro citizens, headed hy J. Thomas Newsoino, col? ored, will call upon Mayor Uuxtoll to? day at noon ami submit a formal pro? test against the presentation of "Tho Clansman" at the Academy 'of Music next Monday afternoon and night. It is understood that several white ministers will he on hand to Join Inj the protest. In explaining his position. New some said yesterday that he would protest just as heartily If "Unelo Tom's Cabin" should be presented here at this time. Following is a copy of the text of tho petition which will lie submitted to I lie mayor: "To the Honorable Samuel R. Buxton, Mayor of the City of Newport News: "The undersigned, representing the law-abiding negroes of our city, hav? ing learned with regret that tho "Clanptnaii," a play written by the Rev. Thomas Dixoil, Is to he present? ed hero in the near future, lake this means of petitioning your honor to bar it. from the community, if In your capacity as mayor of all the people of this city you can legally do so. "In thus importuning vour :ionor. we lire actuated by no ill-will toward Mr. Dixoh personally, for we recog lllzo him as a real artist even If for reasons satisfactory to himself, lie is willing to coin money from passion by preaching the doctrine of univer? sal hale. Our reasons for protesting against the "Clansman." briefly stat? ed, an-: "First?The story upon which the j play is founded recalls a period In our national life which It were well I to forget and tends to fan Into viole nt fury fires rapidly living, out. "Second?It magnifies the vices of negroes during Reconstruction times and minimizes to the point of ignor? ing altogether the faithfulness of mil? lions who. forgetful of politics and ?the promises of politicians, moved steadily on during all thnt period loyal to the best Interest of the best people of the South. "Third?It fails to Inspire one whit of respect for the negro race, hut al? most dehumanizes the entire black family or man by the ridicule and scorn and contempt which Dr. Dixon does not endeavor to conceal through? out the story. "Fourth?The story is historically Inaccurate and even it true Is super? fluous since history abounds with the fullest desirable record of the work? ing <>r reconstruction days and we live too near lo that period In our na? tional lite to be able to survey dis? passionately the scenes portrayed in the "Clansman." ? "Fifth?The reason most potent with us. which brings us to your honor with this petition, is that its effect, upon this city and community will be to mar the cordial relations that exist here between the races. "If this piny should only be wit? nessed by men and women of sober judgment, Its result would be less dis? astrous, but when we remember that Its very bmtalltv, if we may so speak, will attract along with some of our best people mnpy hot-headed hot-blooded youths of both races, we feel that In the interest of peace and continued good-will, the play should not be permitted. "We are loath in make ihj<; n< ti tion as we realize linn this agitation t'-ids to give the "Clansman" free advertisement In case you refuse ''> interfere, but we have faith in the present occupant of the mayor's chair ol" our city and. besides, we desire to go on record as opposing whatever BUY CLOTHES RIGHT.
