SATURDAY.APRIL 5, 1924 The greatest struggle a person has in this life is struggling against inherited handicaps, which come to us in certain inherent traits and prejudices. The in dividual, who can overcome these out strips all competitors. -*-— We again thank sympathizing sub scribers. who have been encouraging and aiding ns. One of these is Mr. Sam uel L. Burton of Baltimore, Md. We helped him many years ago. He is aid ing us now. -# I • It is now reported that the confirma tion of Walter Lt Cohen as Comptrol ler of Customs at New Orleans, Louis iana was due to the vote of Senator Waist, a Democratic Senator from Massachusetts. This is enlightening information and will no doubt be used /tof the Democratic State leaders in the .approaching campaign to aid, them in . corraling the colored votes in northern and Astern States. __-_46— For years, we have been designating the Department of Justice of the Unit ed States as the ‘Department of Injus tice.” No doubt ex-Attormey General Daugherty of Ohio feels the same wav about it now and agrees with us. -* 1)R. DV BOIS AND LIBERIA. Dr. W. E. B. Du Bois is feeling j '“mighty good” over his appointment by President Calvin Coolidge as Envoy i Extraordinary and Minister Plcnitpo | tentiary, the highest rank ever given by any country to a diplomatic agent in black Africa., at the inaugural cere monies of President King. He super seded for the time being the regularly accredited representative of this coun try to that Government. This may be the culminating point of a truly re markable career. That he used it for all i that it is worth seems to be self-evi-^ dent, if we are to judge by a statement in the New York Crisis for April. Here it is: ' \ Monrovia, Liberia, W. C. A.,( February 8th, 1924. i To the Associated Newspapers of the World) President of the Republic has denied application from delegates of the Uni versal Negro Improvement Association to Liberia for an interview. Interview can only be grunted if it partakes of an unofficial character and discussions to take place must, be of an informal nature and as between private individ uals. Any proposal suggesting [location for ^,000 immigrants to Liberia must ulti mately be denied. President told me that he is keeping his mind on the obi? gation of Liberia to the Great Powers, and as sueb to the maintenance of the independence of the Republic. BUTLER’S LIMITED What does this mean? Wh-at Influ ence did the distinguished political economist and leader exert in bringing about this "slap” at Marcus Garvey and his organization? We frankly ad mit that we are puzzled. Liberia was established as a haven of rest and work for the Negroes of this country and now it is officially announceed that the doors of that country are now being slammed in our faces. To what extent did the Garvey Taove ment and Dr W. E. B. Du Bois’ pres ence in Africa figure in this mosi re markable statement? Dr. Du Bois, like Pr<?sident Marcus Garvey is vindictive and bitter towards his opposers and critics. This means that Liberia can not be used in the exploitation propa ganda of the noted leader. He has an nounced that t.he Negro^ Fatherland is the haven for that oppressed race of all lands. If he cannot direct his emi gration movement to the Liberian Re public, which was established for that purpose, be must transfer his activities to Abyssinia. Will he be received with friendly arms there? If not then Egypt must be approached. Outside of these two countries in that vast Continent, name any spot, which does not come undler the dominating influence of some one of the Great Powers, which is openly antagonistic to Garveyism and all that his propaganda implies. It seems to us then that revolution ary movements must be started on African soil and a newly made republic must be set up for the oppressed of every clime. There is room for study and more for comment. Still, wo are vondenng ar to whether or not W. jS B. Du Bois, -evirated lecturer, politi cal economist and statesman knew any thing about that remarkable dispatch, which barred the Republic of Liberia to the hordes of Negroes in this coun try, who under the leadership of the eloquent Garvey were seeking a home »n that foreign land. -* COHEN’S TELEGRAM. 1 We have noticed that some of our I exchanges have been charging Walter L. Cohen with having made the state ment that Ool. R. O Simmons was the cue, who deserved credit for his con firmation as Comptroller of Customs at New Orleans, Louisiana, intimating that he meant that this redoubtable orator deserved all of the credit for this satisfactory consummation. Even our great and good friend, Ben Davis of the Atlanta Independent makes the statement. Here it is: According to the following teiegram sent to the Chicago Defender by Wal ter L. Cohen on the day of his con firmation, Roscoe Simmons is due all the credit for his confirmation. All the efforts and prayers of the thirte3n mil lion Negroes who prayed and pulled for the confirmation of Mr. Cohen, the hundreds of Negroes who wrote their senators and other influential friends to bring pressure to bear; the united effort of every member of the National Negro Press Association and of those Negro Press leaders who stayed around Washington to keep up the morale un til the job was put over, according to Mr. Cohen’s telegram, the Chicago De fender through the indefatigable work of its editor, Colonel Roscoe Simmons! is entitled, to the credit for the victory and all t!be othier influences might have stayed at home and made no effort, for he would have won without them; pro vided, he had the ' influence of tJio indefatigable Simmons. Roscoe Sim mons did it all. Neither the influence of LaFollette nor McCormick did an> thing—it was the Defender through Roscoe Simmons which did it all. No, the senate did not even confirm M»'. Cohen according to the alleged tele gram. Roscoe did it all, and we can prove it by the front page telegram signed “W. L Cohen.” There is hut one Ben Davis in the whole United States of America and we are of the opinion that there never will bo anther. He is a most valuable proposition as an asset and a most dan gerous handicap as a liability. He is a striking illustration of the average white southerner. If he is for you, then God bless you. If lie is against you May the Lord have mercy on your soul. Editor Davis backed Cohen and Walter L. Cohen had some backing. But Cohen sent no letter or telegram to the Atlanta Independent’s chieftain and the three hundred other newspaper men and thousands oi leaders, who ad vocated his confirmation by the United States Senate. He sent it to the Chica go Defender and 'incidentally named Col. R. C. Simmons, President of the Lincoln League. If Col. Simmons had as much judgment as he has oratorical aiblity, the telegram would have never seen the light of day. But it was a poli tical triumph for him and, he published it in his newspaper. Here it is: I Washington, D. C., March 17. "To the Chicago Defender: My ap pointment as comptroller of customs for New Orleans District made by Presi dent Coolidge, has just been confirmed by the Senate, 39 to 38. I thank the De fender for its support and desire to say that credit for the victory is due n through the indefatigable efforts of its representative, Roscoe Simmons. Walter L. Cohen. We wondered before we saw the copy of the telegram how an old cam paigner and shrewd political leader like Walter L. Cohen could have mode such a blunder. After reading the tele gram however, we do not see how any one could put the construction upon the missive to the extent that it says that either the Chicago Defender or the brilliant orator, Roscoe C. Sim mons deserved all of the credit for the (confirmation. His purpose seems to have been to give credit, not all of the credit to the Chicago Defender and then to limit that credit in the Chicago Defender to the associate editor, Roscoe C. Sim mons. In other words, he -was endeav oring to help Simmons with the Chica go Defender’s owner and publisher. But then, what have we to do with the matter any-how? This explanation should come from New Orleans, La., and not from Richmond, Va., so we ena this discussion with the quaint conclu , sion, "good night and, good-bye.” -* A DEMOCRATIC UPHEAVAL. The nomination of Dr. J. Fulmer Bright as the Democratic candidate for Mayor of Richmond over the re doubtable and popular George Ainslie registers one of the most remarkable political upheavals that has ever taken place in this city. An effort to bring this about was made before, but with deplorable results. Mayor Ainslie stood | squarely upon a record of remarkable achievement. It shines forth in all of ite pristine splendor to a people, who veiled their i eyes. They looked at the cost, the , steadily increasing cost and taxes had reached the “breaking point” so to speuk and they turned eagerly to tha young Virginian, who pledged that there would be no increase in taxes. Mayor Ainslie became the victim of hi* own bureaus. ~Many were heard to express their lik ing for the Mayor, and on the next breath would announce that they could not secure a change in the Depart ments without bringing about thte re moval of the Mayor. As for the colored j folks, they had no part in the contest. ! Some of them had friends on both | sides. There is another factor in the con test, the election of nearly aJjl of tho members of the City Council, who had served beforee and are committed to ‘Mayor Ainslie’s policies. Whether or not there was-any swapping of votes in the ‘..landslide” or pledges to constitu ents in order to secure needed support remains to be seen. The newly nominated candidate promises to pursue a conservative policy, although it is self evi lent that all of the heads of the various depart ments of the city government will b* expected to secure employment else where. The "army” of Bright support ers will demand recognition and it is evident that they will get it, or the ‘,day of reckoning” will loom upon the horizon, when the next primary voting day comes around some yie«is hence.

After twelve feeks of hard -work ana conscientious effort on the part of the 1 Manager, B. H. Droste, und every em ployee associated with, him the RAYO . THEATRE, is now an assured success : and it is the talk of all Richmond. When Mr. Droste started at the Rayo j the first of last January muny Wished : him well, but most of the “Wise Ones" said, “He can’t put it over.” Go to the Rayo any night and see if it has been put over! If you want a good seat you Aiave to get there before 8 o’clock and .if you don't get there before y:3U, chances are you won’t be able to get a seat at all. Good clean shows, good oour teous service and a dollars worth for ' thirty-five cents did it. There may be a i few who still doubt the success of the i Rayo, If so those few are massing a good time, lor everybody who is any body now knows tnat the RAYO the peoples place of amusement and the crowd goes to the Rayo every night We might add that Manager Droste has , booked the famous Lafayette Players for a return date at the Rayo, weak of 1 April the 14th and the show this week is a “Humdinger.” Try to get in, thats I all! Nuf Ced! I S1SSLE AND BLAKE TAKE PITTSBURGH BY A STORM. (Preston News Service.) PITTSBURGH, Pa. March 27. Seldom has the theatre going public of Pittsburgh been permitted to see such an excellent presentation from every standpoint as Sissle and Blake’s lat est production entitled “In Bamville’’ making its initial go at the Nixon theatre laBt week. Every feature of the show is funda mentally based on the highest ooncepi tions of art. The gorgeous stage set tings, rich costumes, clean-cut caste, tuneful music, realistic portrayal of racial characteristics—representing a newer type of Negro—prove the produc tion to be a forward step in historic achievement by the racial group. Sissle and Blake deserve unstinted praise for this ambitious production and Pittsburghers express abundant gratitude at being favored with witness ing the debut of ‘.In Bamrille.” ; Another thing that is praise-worthy its the fact that the show was presented in a play house patronized by the best class of Pittsburgh white peopfle who were given a new conception of Negro talent and possibilities. During the [ week the exclusive white clubs and) so cial organizations vied with each other I inviting Sissle and Blake and their troupe to special luncheons, etc., to render a few selections. On every hand favorable comment was heard re garding members of the show. Stand ing room was at a premium at eacn performance during the entire week. Sissle and Blake and their orchestra rendered short programs daily over the radio during their sojourn in Pitts burgh. The production presages a new era in theatrical history of the race. MOTHER AND FIVE CHILDREN DIe WHEN HOME BURNS DOWN (Presto* New* 8e price) INDIANAPOLIS, Ind), March 27—A mother and five children were trapped in their home and burned to death here last Monday while the efforts ot the father and husband to save them proved futile. The dead: Mrs. Susie Stovall, aged 41 years; Navada, aged 14; Darnell, aged 12; Lydia, aged 9; Cornell aged 2 and Katherine, aged 2 months. The family was sleeping in an up airs room. When neighbors awaken ed the family, Percey Stovall knocked out a window and stepped onto the porch-roof so his wilfe could liandi the smaller children out to him. Before Mrs. Stovaill could reach the window with the youngest child the flames swept into the room and blinded her so slue could not find her way. As Stov all attempted to 'enter the room to aid in the rescue of the children the porch gave way throwing him to the ground. MURDERER OF FANNIE HARRIS 19 ELECTROCUTED. (Preeton New* Service.) BELLEFONTE, Pa., March 28.— George Bland waa electrocuted last Monday morning in the Roekview peni tentiary for complicity in the murder of Mrs. Fannie Harris in her home in Harrisburg in January 1923. Charles Ernest, who was also contact ed with Bland and sentenced to death, died of tuberculosis before tibe sentence . could be carried out. YOUNG WHITE MEN ROB TWO TENNES8E RACE MEN. (Preston News Service.) MEMPHIS, Tenn., March 27—V. Huddleson and Len. Davis of Hunter Avenute just outside the city limits, re ported to the police that they had been held np and robbed by two young white men in Evergreen Street shortly after 9:45 o’clock last Wednes day night. Huddleson lost bis watch and a small amount of cash. Davis, suspect ing the intentions of the men before they reached him, succeeded in secret ing h-te cash. The robbers were in an old Ford car akx*ording to the report made to the police who are making a wide search for them. FIRE DAMAGES LOVETT’S HOME. fPreot*!) News BcttIm) ► WASHINGTON, D. C., March 27.— Much property damage resulted from p fire in the home of William Lovett shortly before noon on Wedmesday. Mrs. Lovett and their two children Ax bert, four; and Edward, two-and-one balf months were forced to se k safety in the house of a neighbor. Firemen succeeded in confining the blaze to the second and third floors, water doing much damage to the first floor. Origin of the fire was not fully determined and, tihe damage was esti mated at approximately $5,000. LAFAYETTE PLAYERS (Continued from Page 1) difficult to feel as though this was a piece of pefect acting. Olden stand* on the highest pedestal of is chosen profession. What can be said about Mrs. Hilda Thompson. She furnishes either age or girl-hood and her trite humorous say ings and “biting” replies created laughter and made her an instant fav orite. She knew just what to say to that jealous husband and she upheld her friend, Aggie, through ail of her troubles, while admitting contldentiai : ly that her actions ‘.did look bad.” But she was against the men all along the ! line and as for husbands, she had this to say, ,‘The only way to keep a hui band is to feed him up, tceut him rough, keep him broke and wear him out.” i This feeding business was to be on the first of the month, when he was i wanted to sign checks to pay her bills and us would fare rough in the feed.ng line all during the days thereafter. Rupert Marks as Morgan Carr is a tit ling rival to Andrew Bishop. H.s repro duction of this character was all to be expected and his rare dramatic powers were always in evidence. What must be said of William (Babe) Townsend. He took a role that surprised even his friends and admirers. As the book agent, he assumed a solemn role and gave a ilecture on psychology that would have done credit to a professor cf the Old School. From that serious role, he dropped to another character as Bill Patch and thle transformation was as sudden as that of Dr. Jekyl ana Mr. Hyde. His reputation as a dramatist is secure in the light vein of that art, but it remain ed for him last week to display his rare powers in a more serious vein. He was superb in both renditions. Arthur Taylor as the station agent was perfeec. He didn’t have much to do, but he did it. The audience bad been so enthusi astic and insistent that the Ben Holmes Inc., through the manager, B. H. Droste responded to the requests ami engaged the players for a return en gagement the week of April 14th, when the "Unborn,” and "The Mar riage Question” will be presented dur ing that week. Certainly, no aggrega tion of players have ever stirred Rich mond as these dramatists have done. ST. PAUL WINS CONTEST (Continued from page 1) | ably represented Norfolk in bis i speech, "The Open Door.” Mr. Luther : Johnson of Noreum High School Ports ; mouth, Va1, gave an oration of real merit on “Democracy of the World. ” ThtB M,:sse.s Mildred Jenkins and Thelma Jenkins rendered beautiful vocal selections. Miss Olga Russell J gave an instrumental solo. Mists j Thelma Winston also pleased with an | instrumental solo. President Clark of ' Va. Union University delivered a fitting welcome to the contesting orators. The Judges, Messrs. Prof. Booker, Va. U. U.t L. P. Jackson, V. N. and 1.1., and I. A. Derbigny, V. N. and I I., after much deliberation, rendered the 1 verdict to the St. Paul orator. The con testants were judged on thfeir stage de corum, oratorical ability and gesticula tion. Mr. J. Raymond Henderson in an impressive manner, presented a hand some and costly trophy to the Va. Union University to be contested for each year. Mr. Henderson, who is now a senior at the famous Virginia insti tution said that the staging of this contest was partially in behalf of re paying to some degree a debt of grati tude to Union and also out of his love for oratory. President Clark presented the trappy to the winner, who enthusiastically ac cepted it. An enjoyable social was given in the dining hall after the pro gram. (Preston News Service.) BRADDOCK, Pa., April 3.—Caesar Taylor, aged 25 years, was fined $50 or 30 days in jail when he lighted a cigai ette during his hearing last Thursday morning before Burgess Harvey Hunt er of North Braddock.
