Our brilliant coutemporary. The

tier the caption of “White People
and Race Papers’* in issue of May
■£€ih says:
“Our friend John Mitchell, Jr. of
the Richmond Planet, says that if
there are any people s* unsophisti
cated as to believe that the white
people do not know what we nay in
our papers they should summon him
to testify t0 the contrary. lCe says
that about tweuty-flve years ago he
wrote an editorial which was con
•strued as a reflertton upon one of
the judges of our State for a decis
ion rendered by him, and that in a
lew days after the publication of his
criticism he was summoned before
the said judge for contempt of his
court. Brother Mitchell did not re- j
cord what the judgment of the court
was, but he does say that he has j
net done it again . ”
The Judge entered au order dis
missing the proceedings after au
attorney had taxed us fifty dollars
for drawing a paper that we could
have written ourselves. 0 yes. a
colored editor is “living in a fool's
paradise’’ so to speak when he
imagines that he can say what he
pleases in the columns of his journal
and that the white folks wont think
enough of it to read it*
' Our observation kas been that no
President. Republican or Democrat,
has been able to resist successfully
the miasma of race prejudice at
Washington, regardless of what his
personal feelings might be upon the
subject,. Theodore Roosevelt yield
ed to it and Woodrow Wilson could
r.ot resist its impetus and now it
seems that Culviu Coolidge, hailing
from the free state of Massachusetts
ia stalled, and bows *to this same
crowning infamy of the American
Republic—'Richmond (Va.) Planet.
“The foregoing is true, at least
far as our life-time is coucerned.
except the fart that President Thom
as Woodrow Wilson PROMPTED in
stead of ‘resisted its impetus’. The
condiiion complained of is going to
•continue until our people learn to
refuse to vote for or to vo’e against
such Pfpsidanls when candidates for
re election
We cordially and enthusiast'ically
commend and recommend this ad
vice from *hc- "sage of race journal
****^’ and one ?tJ the ablest and best
statesmen o? the race iu *his coun
try. We refer *o the Hon. H. C
Smith ot' Cleveland. O. j
iaithroughout ‘he State are do
te-minod *‘o rid the order of this
oligarchy, who like a giant octopus,
are now' hrottling it and sapping its
very life’s blood by burdening it
with excessive and unnecessary high
salaries. Economy and retrench
men and a strict observance of
Pythian laws governing the dis
bursement of our Grand Lodge
funds is our policy and if this
makes us traitors, as we are brand
ed in one of the auricles above re
ferred to, then we are proud to be
such trai’ors.
i Tli© article appearing in the May
26th issue “was born In sin and
shaped in iniquity" and is a false
hood of the whole cloTh. It pur
ports to ^manate from the Tidewater
Past Chancellors' Council and alleg
es that the same was reorganis'd,
when as a matter of fact neither
the president nor secretary knew
anything whatever of the alleged
meeting except by rumor and hear
*“ 1
The report also stales that “the
meeting was largely attended and
enthusiastic”. A majority of those
who attended were merely erstwhile
Py hians (has beens) and some of
tii(. principals taking part in the al
leged reorganization are nqt mem
bers in good standing with their re
spective subordinate lodges. The
few Pvthiuns in good standing who
were present were made up of two
classes, viz: Those who attended
cut of mere curioslry, to see what it
was all about and the others were
sycophantic vassals doing the bid
ding of their overlords. This latter
group tried in vain to prevent t^is
council from adopting the resolu
tions ‘‘hat have been circulated as
herein recited, and forms that hope
less minority that seems to be a
necessary evil of every worthwhile
w»; *
No Mr. Editor, the Pythians of
Virginia are not dissatisfied at the
stand taken by Sirs Puryear, West
and Foreman, nor with the services
re ndered by them in their respective
office^ neither has there been any
reorganization of the Tidew’ater
Council of Past Chancellors, K. of
P., nor w'ill there be any. These
tumblings you hear from the oppo
sition are but echoes of the dying
paroxisms of an exposed and dis
credited oligarchy whose regime of
wanton waste of our Grand Lodge
funds is about to be brought to an
cud and who like an out-pointed
pugilist is reluctant to leave his
errner for fear of the knockout blow
fl at he knows to be surely in wait
ing for him.
In conclusion, Mr. Editor, since
jour paper is fhe official organ of
Pvthianism in Virginia, we are ask
ing tha» you give *‘his article the
same prominence in your columns
tha4 you gave the two to which
this one is a reply.

115 Lbs. in 6 Weeks
- My Dear Friends:
j After my attack of Flu I was thin,
rundown and wreak. I had a sallow'
complexion, my cheeks were sunk in
and I was continually troubled with
gas on my stomach, I felt stuffy and
had lost my appetite. I had read
about McCoys’ Cod Liver Oil Com
pound Tablets and decided to give
them a trial. At once, I began to
pick up an appetite my cheeks filled
out and my complexion became
: healthy looking and I gained 15
pounds in six w’eeks and am very
thankful for what McCoy’s Cod Liver
Oil Compound Tablets did for me.
Miss Alberta Rogers, 264 W. Cerro
Gorda St., Decatur). 111.
To take on weight, grow strong
and vigorous; to fill out the hollows
in cheeks and neck, try McCoy’s Cod
Liver Oil Compound Tablets for 30
days. 60 Tablets—60 cents at drug
gists everywhere. If they don’t give
you wonderful help in 30 days, your
druggist is authorized to give you
your money back—you be the judge.
But bo sure and ask for McCoy's
