Pictures and Vaudeville HOLCOMBE DEFENDS HOME AGAINST WHITE INTRUDERS Bolicitor Jackson Renders Fair De cision In Port Tampa Holdup Episode. Tampa. Fla.—On the night of July 23 at about 1 o’clock three white men entered the home of Columbus Hol combe, an Afro-American, residing in a town near this place, claiming to col lect a bill from one of Mr. Holcombe’s lodgers. Mrs. Holcombe remonstrated with the men. and they in turn cursed her. Holcombe arose and told the in truders that he did not curse before his wife and did not allow any man, white or black, to curse her. The white men flred two shots in the house, and Holcombe seized his revolv er and shot repeatedly until one of the white men was killed and the other two were wounded. Holcombe and Charles Hall, the lodger, were arrest ed and taken to the county jail. On July 25, after an investigation upon the part of County Solicitor Jackson, they were released on the grounds that they had acted in self defense. This decision has surprised many of the Negro hating white people, as they had hoped for a lynching bee. The colored men were advised to leave this vicinity. The editor of the Tampa Daily Times in commenting on the af fair said that Solicitor Jackson did right in exonerating the Negroes. This impartial comment, coming from the pen of a southern white man, shows that not all the white people of the south are enemies to the colored peo ple. The Times says: “It is too much the habit of a certain class of white men to act in their dealings with Negroes as if the latter had no rights of any kind that the dominant race is compel led to respect. This is in the highest degree reprehensible and should re ceive outspoken condemnation of all those who recognize the error, the criminality of such course of action. “All men are equal before the law and have the same right to its protec tion in the enjoyment of ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.' “Reverse the positions of the parties of the Port Tampa affair and consider what a howl of execration would have arisen throughout the country at the deeds of the black fiends that attacked the home of a peaceable citizen in the dead hour of night attempting to mur der the inoffending man and his help leas wife in their home all for the ai leged purpose of collecting a trifling debt “There would be talk and perhaps the grim reality of a lynching, and it would be well deserved, as many an other crime of the kind that has been In silence condoned.” Owing to the increased cost of pub lication, it becomes necessary to make a nominal charge of 50c, pay able In advance, for ail Cards of Thanks, notices of condolence and Resolutions. The price of room rent, ads and other liners that are run on a monthly rate of 50c must be paid in advance as we are unable to carry them at so small a rate and pay a collector’s commission. No Items of this nature accepted without a cash payment * i * WORK OF THE NATIONAL NEGRO PRESS ASSOCIATION Hiflh Tribute Paid to Its Efforts by W. Anthony Aery. Mr. W. Anthony Aery, press agent at the Hampton (Va.) institute, pays a high tribute to the efforts, work and achievements of the National Negro Press association in an article which recently appeared in the Southern Workman. The article in full is as follows: Wider publicity for the facts of Ne gro progress and problems of race ad justment is being everywhere secured through heartier and more systematic co-operation among Negro editors and correspondents. Today men have a better chance than they have ever had before to secure accurate and timely facts concerning the struggles and suc cesses of colored people, especially in the south. An important factor in the widening and deepening of public in terest in the Negro as a progressive and vital element in American civiliza tion Is the National Negro Press asso ciation, organized in 1909 and given new life in 1912 at the Chicago meet ing of the National Negro Business league. The officers and members of the Ne gro Press association are working har moniously “for the highest develop ment of Negro journalism.” Their policy is that of printing “the news without fear or favor, giving a true re flex of existing conditions without con cealing evil.” Their policy also in cludes the publication of a Negro newspaper and publishers’ directory and the establishment of higher stand ards in advertising, business methods and news service for the public. The work on the directory is being ably done by Henry Allen Boyd of Nashville, Tenn., the national corre sponding secretary. The problems of working out a plate service and of de veloping a reciprocal news service are being worked out by a subcommittee of the executive for action at the an nual meeting of the association to be held in Philadelphia in August. The white papers are coming to re alize that the public Is Interested in Negro progress. They are printing as news items the advance of the Amer ican Negro in landowning, home build ing, community und school improve ment. The Negro papers are devot ing more space to live news con cerning their own people and less to sensational material in which the ways, and not the best ways, of white people are exploited. In short, there is a gratifying growth in the common interest of giving all the people all the news of mutual progress and good will. The officers of the National Negro Press nssociaion are: R. W. Thompson. Washington. president: Joseph S. Jones. Cincinnati, 0., and Gurley Brewer, Indianapolis. Ind., vice presi dents; Henry Allen Boyd, Nashville. Tenn., and Charles Sumner Smith, Minneapolis.

This san itary method of treatment is also having the desired effect in helping to prevent the spread of diseases, for it is a fact that hair in an unsanitary condition carries the germs of disease which often prove fatal to innocent persons coming in contact with them.
