In the hole-in-the-wall on Larimer street, called the “Annex theatre” - there are five girls and two men in a troupe of seven (all white), playing vaudeville. One man blacks his face, playing negro, and sleeps on the floor. The other players kick and abuse him, he takes it good naturedly and "grins.” But what is most disgusting of all is when this black-faced white man gets on his knees, plays dog, and barks when they call him "Nig,” and when they say to him, "Ain’t you a dog?” then he sings "Dis Nigger Wants His Chicken Pot Pie.” When questioned about the reflection on the negro race, the Jew manager is purported to have said: “Niggers stand for anything; nothing gets too bad for them.” We say, and know, that even on Larimer street, in this hole-in-the-wall theatre, that negroes have manhood and race loyalty, and a reflection cast against the negro, even in such a place, de serves your strongest condemnation. Let no negro frequent this man’s place. Stay away, and patronize the other theatres which employ negroes, or which advertise in the negro press and treat the negroes, along with the other races, courteously. Spurn him and resent hi sinsult by your absence and tell your white and negro friends if they believe all negroes are dogs, to go and give this man their hard earned money. Mr. Larimer negro, it is up to you. For God’s sake and for the sake of the respect you have for your race, STAY AWAY, SEE. What negroes will go there now. GUILTY OR NOT GUILTY. If you wish to assist in killing your church’s services on the Lord’s day, just stay at home. If you want to hurt the cause, attend church for no par ticular purpose; give sparingly to sup port the gospel; listen to idle gossip about your church and pastor, and then encourage it by circulating or giving an ear to it. Refuse every op portunity to work in the church, and criticize those who are doing their best; drink all the liquor you can get and then attend church, hoping to be aroused by the gospel. These things will kill any church. ARE YOU GUILTY? There is no better time than the present to show your good felling to ward the Jewish race than by raising your voice in protest against the in justices that are being done them in Russia. Never since the Civil war have we had so many friends come out in the limelight to help us fight our battles, and never, too, has there been a time when we needed them more. From Mobile, Ala., comes the star tling information that the white mem bers of the longshoremen’s union are on a strike to enforce the demands of 2,000 colored workmen. “The sun do move.” OUR DENVER CITIZENS.

We wish to express our sympathy to you in the loss of your clear mother. Death is a mystery. His heartless decree compels us to submit to his will. We know of no way to hinder his onward and rapid march in taking from us our beloved ones. We are at his mercy, yet we are taught that death is simply the gate entering into endless joy. We pray that you have the help of a higher power, and only the loving Father can wipe away our tears. Signed: ANNIE E. HAMILTON, GEORGIE MASON, LENA BARNS. * COLORADO BPRINGB. ' Bee Dr. At.

Some Hitherto Unpublished Facts Re garding Origin of Race Prejudice. By JOHN E. BRUCE (GRIT). Should it be asked at what epoch the system of jimorowing the Negro took its bii*h we shall answer on the tes timony of the monuments of astron omy itself that its principles appear with certainty to have been established about 17.000 years ago. And if it be asked to what people it is to be at tributed we shall answer that the same monuments, supported by unanimous traditions.’attribute it to the first tribes of Egypt. Thus the Ethiopian of Thebes named the stars of inundation, or Aquarius, those stars under which the Nile began to overflow: stars of the Ox or the Bull, those under which they began to plow: stars of the Lion, those under which that animal, driven from the desert by thirst, appeared on the banks of the Nile: stars of the Sbenf or of the Har vest Virgin, those of the reaping sea son: stars of the Lamb, atars of the two Kids, those under which these precious animals were brought forth, and thus was resolved the first part of the difficulty.—From Chapter XXII. Unexpurgated Copy. Volney’s “Ruins of Empire.'* A perusal of this chapter will dis close the fact that Africa has given to modern civilization the science of astronomy and the religion with which it now seeks to humiliate and degrade the descendants of these tawny blacks. “The Ethiopians," says Lucian at page 9Sf>. “were the first who invented the science of the stars and gave names to the planets, not at random and without meaning, but descriptive of the qualities which they conceived them to possess, and it was from them that this art passed, still in an imper fect state, to the Egyptians.” That moderns are capable of teaching to Ne groes the principle of the religion of Jesus Christ, a religion which they pro fess, but do not practice, is, to say the least, amusing. God lias evidently placed the Negro in America to test the reality of the white man’s religion. The test is not creditable to him. His religion is a snare and a delusion, sounding brass and tinkling cymbals. And the Ne- 1 gro will not have it because he does not need it. NOTICES TO BE PAID FOR. Owing to the increased cost of pub lication, it becomes necessary to make a nominal charge of 50c, pay able in advance, for all 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 The Endowment Depart ment of the Odd Fellows has already paid J. W. Jackson $100.00 for the death of his wife, who was a member of Household of Ruth 376. The prompt payment came as a surprise asthe required time had not expired. . Mrs. J. YV.
