Doing the Square Thing—Are You One? The Ministerial Alliance of Denver, together with the Denver People’s Al liance, after a thorough investigaUon of the case of J. W. Jones, have de cided that his is a worthy cause for the charity and assistance of all col ored men and women. It appears that in self defense he killed another man. He was tried and sentenced to hang Dec. 15, 1914. Ex-Gov. Ammons reprieved him until May, 1915. We must raise S2OO to get his case to the Supreme court before that time. Jones is without friends, has no mon ey and faces death. We believe the Supreme court will rule in his favor. We must raise S2OO. We appeal to you. Act at once. Send your dona tions to Titus S.

ALTHO FRIENDLESS AND HELP LESS, SHALL JONES HANG? You Can Save Him With Your Mite. The Ministerial Allianoe, assisted by the People's Sunday Alliance, are appealing to the men and women in Denver and out in the state and out side of this state to Bave the life of their fellow man, who is condemned to die May 13. Money is needed to take his case to Supreme court. He did not have a fair trial and he is helpless, penniless and friendless, yet he Is some mother's son and some sister's brother. Will you send your contribution to T. S. Rector, 271$ Wei ton St., Denver, Colo., treasurer. To the Editor of Denver Star: I congratulate you for the manly stand you have taken for the organi ■ zation known as the Colored Prot/ i: ' tlve League, which has for its nur ■ pose the betterment of the condition ' of our people. I am an old citizen of Denver and a taxpayer and hare seen our people engage in politics from year to year for 30 years, and they have done nothing for the rea -1 son that they were too selfish or too Ignorant. They have been satisfied to get a Job, and to get It they have been ready and willing to fuss and quarrel with every one who would not help them to get the Job, and to get the cheap notoriety of being lead ers. That class of colored men and women are of no value to the race. They are too selfish to help any oth ers of the race but themselves They claim a mortgage on everything to be given out and if any one disputes their claim they attempt to defend themselves by saying how long they have been here, etc., and they there fore are entitled to all the plums. Mr. Townsend Is the only man who has come among us who has shown that he Is thoroughly Interested in all the people, and he is not after a Job, but Is trying to help as many as her can get positions. Besides that, his organization is for the protection of our civil rights after the present political campaign, a thing needed more than all the political Jobs. The people are not fools; they know those people who oppose him In his efforts; they know that they are the old chronic office seekers —many of them have not done a day's work in twenty years. They live by office and flu ence” with the colored people. Down with that crowd. Stand by the men and women who have started a new movement to ‘help the race. I know that old crowd will die hard. Tbs people are reading your paper and commending the noble stand you have taken for a new deal and a fair deal against the chronic office seek ers' organizations and for all the people. Why did they not start the good movement? Why did they wait for Mr. Townsend to start it —then as soon as he did, try to take it away from him All honor to the Star and to Mr. Townsend for your great efforts. Keep It up and the colored people will rise up and call you blessed, for the people are with you. AN ODD TIMER. < Mr. Old Timer, whoever you are, The Star sincerely appreciates your words of encouragement at this tliae. The Star decided long ago to fight for the people, the real horny-handed, hard working people whose money supports the Star. In this fight we have doubtless made lots of enemies, persons whose friendship and words of advice and encouragement we bare heretofore highly appreciated, but friends or no friends. The Star has a duty, sees It and Is willing to die for the people discharging our trust. We have been called Into question ill a friendly manner, yet positive In US ultimate effect, by a few who really misunderstood us and our policy, aad yes, by a few WHO ARB BEIIiO MISLED BY SOME SHREWD POLI TICIANS. Mr. Old Timer, while f* sincerely appreciate your kind wordkr ire wonder If you belong to the organ ization and take the Star which 70a think ta doing ao nobl7- However, we especially appreciate the sentiment contained, when we are being ao thor oly tried. We ahall try to do and be all you have aaid about ua. Thank you. YOUR CHILD’S COUGH IS A CALL FOR HELP. Don't put oB treating your Child's Cough.
