AN APPEAL TO JUSTICE-LOVING
MEN AND WOMEN.
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. Rector, 2716 Welton
street, Denver, Colo.

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.
