(Continued From First Pago) est (limbing of the mountain was I over. Wo stopped at a farm-house to I get. water. A young whito man sat In a Ford and he told about an accident (lint hart happened on a race-track in tlio neighborhood, "llow nro the roads" I enquired. Tliey are pretty good after you got over the Blue Mountain ovor there," he said. The roads through here are the worst be tween licesburg and Washington." I looked in dou'bttui agony at iliose high moun'ulnH, for I was in a valley that appeared (o be in the mountajus. The mud was deep and il took skill ful driving to get over the roads in Bafety. T1 IOSK EVERLASTING TOLL-GATES. Then came tho toll-gates. The rougher the road, tho moro tho toll gates and twenty flvo cents was the nmount oxaeted l>?foro that suspended polo would rise. Then wo readied the mountain. Tho main burners had gone out and liad to be relighted. With out tho main burners, wo could not make steam and without steam, we could not climb tbe mountain and without cfllmblng the mountain wo could not reach Hevryvillo lust about sixteen miles nway. But a happy thought came over us for by moving the throttle and closing i;'j, wo found a ?way to keop <bo main burner* go lug a?\d with BOO pounds of steam we started up tho mountain side. As wo tiRConded. chain after chain of moun tains could bo seen in tho distance. THAT MOUNTAIN SOENEllY I Thero clown in the valley could bo soon houses and oattlo and tlio road ways with their varlgated colors und then away off in tlio Wost, the sink ing sun ;told us that daylight would soon leave ns. 1 had scon the sight ho fore, but now I was worried. Wo had to stop on the side of the niontain. Chocking the roar wheel was my Job. Curious while mountaineers came up to look at this queer machine and to ask many questions. They had never seen a steam-car before. The super hearter was getting worse. I inquired as to ifhe distance to the top of tho mountain. "There it is." said ono of them, "at thai house yonder, about 250 yards. After y.ou got thoro, you will striko down grade." I had sug gested that my party get out and wa'k Up there, while I aided Robinson fn getting up steam enough to cover tho distance. " v THE TOP OF THE MOUNTAIN They did so and in a short while, we had reached the top of tho moun tain. All got. into the car and tiYm the Stanley stoam car moved like a living thing, it had demonstrated its ability to climb a mountain, even with a hurstod supor-heater. but our troub les were no! over. Down on the oth side, was a whito foinalo, wolghing apparently 300 pounds with her hand outstretched for toll for tho prlvilego of travelling over those miserable roads. I had the money waiting for her and I told Rob!it?on to drivo on. We wore limping, but mnking pro. gross. I3wt. I was worried, no* so much about reaching Berryvlllo now for I was about 5 miles from there and the pr>r>r>tr? were expecting us, but what I wanted t,o find out was bow T conid make the return trip in a cripple car. FINDING FRIENDS THERE It scorns foolhardy to attempt it. But I had enough trouble for the pros ent and as to tho future, well that was another question. We had near (Hi IlerryviUe and then ft big "fat sis tor" with her hand out exacted anotli er 25 cents toll. I counted sevon toll gates and I folt like protesting every time I paid the amount, but whiit was \lie use. Then wo came to Berry ville, Entered and Inquired ?Jie way to Mr. Paul Williams of Liberty street. "Go down to the Square," said a white citi zen and turn to your right one square. I thanked him and followed his instructions. Just as we passed tho church, we met Sir J. L, Davis. Ho greeted us heartily. Later, we met Sir Edwards. Then we went into the real dence of Mr. and Mrs. Williams, where preparations had been made for us. BACK TO RICHMOND The work for which I came being over than night, T got into bed and was soon in the land of dreams. I had worked out a plan, which consisted in sending Robinson back to Richmond Cor tho super-heater that I had on my other car. This separated mo from a twenty dollar bill for railroad fare and .board are rather high these days. He loft at 8:30 Sunday morning, while I remained (o rest and to recuperate from my exciting experiences of tho day before. As for the Stanley, that was safely anchored In Mr. Pnul Wil liams' side yard. Robinson had taken d<own the pan to make sure that we had correctly diignosed tho trouble and ho found that the super-licaior was gone and that another one to tnko its Place would make tlio car "as good as new."

The colored bodyguard was with Jefferson Davis when his capture was effeotod.'In fact, ho is said to havo warned his master of the approach of tho enemy hut Preldont Davis did not escnpo In time.

Government action looking to general amnesty for political prisoners probably will await establishment of ilio declara tory ponce with Germany. Tiiis attitude of tlu> administration was indicated Thursday alter a del eg.vtion from the political amnesty was indicated yesterday at the White House to urge President Harding to exercise clemency . 1 Morris Hillquit, prominent Social ist. said tho President recolved (he delegation cordially and that they felt encouraged to believe tho case of every individual is being given con sideration . APPEAL ONIjT for justice "Wo are appealing for justice In behalf of tho victims of n morbid and abnormal political sltum?>on," Hill quit told tlto President. "We are not invoking clemency In ifavor of crimi nals. The men and women whose causo we are pleading have commit ted no offense against the person or property \of their fellow men. Thoy have not taken up arms against their country, or sold themselves into sor vlce of fho enemy." Jackson "Ralston, an attorney for tho American Federation of Labor, and another of the delegates, laid particular stress on the severity or tho sentences imposed. Many, he do (flared, received sentences of twen ty yours. He argued their detention was no longer nooded, since they do not menace society. PRESENT CASE OP 166 I. W. W'S. Albert do Silver of the American Civil Liberties Union, presented tho case pf 166 I. W. W. prisoners, ninety six of whom aro still in jail. Ho said that, tho oharge of conspiracy ngaiiiFt those men had been found to bo without evidence, while f/heir sontenu es exceeded In severity those of others. The delegates paraded to the Capi tol later in the day, -wearing arm bands marked "amnesty." They pre sontod a petition to Vice-President Cooligo urging amnesty, signed by 300.000 shoots, which were pasted end to end and wound in a liugo roll, which measured more than a yard in diameter. The march to tho Capitol was without, incident., except that po lico asked that a banner on an auto mobile bo removed in compliance with tho law. There was no objection to this from the petitioners, who said they desired noippeclnl privileges. Aft orwards t.ho delegates visitod their Congressmen and Senators.

Simmons, "Im perial wizard" of the Ku Klux Klan referred to tflio National Association for theAdvancemeut of Colored People as the Klan's chief opponent; there comes now from tho center of pepnage in Georgia additional testimony to the fear of the National Association's throwing liglu> into dark corners. For, at the trial pf John Williams, who was accused of murdering Negro peons on ills farm in Jasper County, Georgia, a special challenge was issu ed to talesmen before they wero accep ted as jurors. The reports of the trial p.tate that in tiho course of the oxami nation of veniremen counsel for WiK liams "sought particularly to deter mine if any of the prospective jurors were members of the National Associa tion Tor the Advancement of Colored People, or if 'voluntary* counsel in (lie case received any part of their pay from that source." j 'Phis is an encouraging sign Indica tive of tho widespread knowledge of j the work the Association is doing. I When white men in Georgia arc afraid | that just.icc will bo administered to one of their number because of tho j activities of the Advancement Associa i tion it is proof prosit ivo that tfioso activities arc having a profound of- 1 feet . Tho National Association for tho Advancement of Colored PeopJo is a>] quiring the sort of reputation in tho South which tho Jewblers Protective j Association used to enjoy in New j York. For thirty years no burglar j dared to rob n store with tlio emblem; of this as"":!"! ir.i: "t window for burglars knew t lie Jewelers Protec tive Association wouhl pursue them for ten years if necessary and at a cost of thousands of dollars in order finally to bring them to justice. White oppressors of tho Negro in the South are beginning to beware in this same way of tho National Associ ntion for tho Advancement of Coloreo People. With the support of all color ed people tills Association can be made ? as potent In frightening white men in to doing juiHco :i Ku Klux Klan , used to be !? "o'ored peo ple lnt(o enduring Injustice. ' Til |0 NATIONAL RACK CONGRESS 1 IS MANNED 11Y COMPKTKST HACK LEAVERS. t 1 . Tim reason why thai tho National It aoe Congress <>r America commends itself to tho thoughtful colored peo ple of the United States is heeause it is manned from head to foot by com petent colored officers. Secondly, lie cause the Congress makes the strong est po88ihlo appeal to every colored man and woman \vlv> has a spark of race pride in them to assist in tho development of their own people along tho line of self government, and there by promote efficiency in practical leadership, as well as providing uso* ful places of employment for their Bpns and daughters. Tho National Itace (iongresa, liico every great organization lias had its knocked and critics from timo to time. The officers of tho Congress how ever, do not object to fair ami honest criticism; on *he other hand they rather invite it. An organization that cannot stand on the acid test and sur- 1 vive. just criticism ought to die and be burled beyond tho hope of resurrcc* . Hon . I Evory great organization known to the (history of tho world has had its critics, the church not excepted. < Every groat leader of the people from Moses of ancient Israel to tho present day had t'o stand abuse and gross mis representation; even the Son of God could not escape It. But, like, our Saviour, nil true leaders will pray, "Lord, forgive them. for theyknow not wliat they do." "Vengonance is mine, I will repay, saith tho Lord." No man or set of men that are right need not fear. No weapon that is form ed against them can prosper and evory assemblod at 'the National Race Con gress in tho District of Columbia will tongue that shall rlso up against them in judgement, shall ho condemned. Tho motto of the National Race Congresss is, "Do right and fear not." If right is right, since Cod Is right, then the day will win. To doubt would he dis loyalty, to falter would be sin." Tho local committee of tho National Race Congress Is enthused now as never beforo In its history, at tho bright outlook that is beforo ulio Con gress. The largest crowd that has ovor meet hero on tho 4th of May. Men and women from all walks of life,, repre senting every s?V?te in tho Union aro expected hero at tho annual session of the Congresfl on the 4th of May next. Tho local committee held a most enthusiastic meeting at headquarters a few days ago, and among other fillings decided upon was, to Instruct the judiciary committee of the con gress to wait upon the Attorney Gen oral of tho United States and fllo with tho Department of Justice their protest against. tho peonago atrocities of Georgia and other Southern states and If ho found It wise to do so to ap pointy colored men wlierovor advisable to help ferret, out the perpetrators of these awful crimes.
