According to the promises made for election, the position of messenger which has heretofore been held by a Democrat, has been given to a Re publican in the person of J. W. Jack son, by our Governor Geo. A. Carlson. Now that the ice has been broken, tho many Republican newspaper men kept the predecessor in office, Negro Republicans* can confidently look for their just share of the spoils. Now a watchman’s job in the Bureau of Mines has been promised to be given us and a clerical position in the Sec retary of State s office. We cannot understand why these things are not done, as the past election is over and it is about time to line up for an other election. We congratulate Mr. Jackson ujton his appointment and trust that the new messenger will be efficient, polite, courageous and true to his own. Governor Carlson is be ing highly spoken of by several of the colored people as a fair and square man, even if he is a little slow. On behalf of the colored peo ple the Star thanks our Governor. | DR. SPRATLIN APPOINTED TO | HEALTH OFFICE BY MAYOR SHARPLEY. Protection League Recognized. True to his promise of substantially recognizing the selection of the Col ored Protective League and despite the many baneful things said to the contrary about Dr. W. H. Sharpley as candidate. Mayor Sharpley not only fittingly recognized the league who fought so valiantly for him, but also refuted by his action the unjust things said by his enemies. When the time came and an appointment was to be made, the mayor acted. We sincerely trust that in the very near future a way can be made wherein another appointment, that of J. J. Manuel, will be made by the mayor. Dr. Spratlin went to work Friday morning in the health department and the colored people are very much pleased because of Mayor Sharpley s good favor. This appointment is the best yet. J. W. Jackson, who was recently appointed to the messengership ofl the Governor, succeeded in having ap pointed his friend Chas. M. Hughes to his route in the Capitol. Mr. Hughes is an old citizen and was em ployed at the Colorado National Bank building. We congratulate both men for their new acquisitions. CITY NEWS.

Even though you may not be pros perous, adopt as far as possible the appearance of prosperity. It is sound capital and will bring good interest in the long run. Shabby-looking people, you may have noticed, always appear apologetic and can easily be turned down when they are most in need of a helping hand. Keep a brace front. Dame Fortune likes to throw her magic cloak about the shoulders of the man or woman who looks capable of making the best of it. Y. W. C. A. CLUB NOTES. A Y. W. C. A.

Madame De Neal and Madame Dish man take this opportunity to thank the many customers who have helped make “The De Neal School of Beauty and Hair Culture” a complete success. Just one year ago this month (Octo ber) Madame De Neal established in Seattle, Wash., what is known as “De Neal’s School of Beauty and Hair Cul ture,” which is located at 1319 East Pine street. The world is advancing and in this, the twentieth century, women of our i ace demand that we be conscientious and efficient, in our line of work tor; them as well as for her white sister.' The care and preservation of the hair is, and should be, of vital interest to everyone. Those who are bleßsed with healthy, thick and luxuriant hair must expect to assiduously practice the things which are best for it, and at the same time avoid carelessness and neg lect. We are widening “The De Neal Method” for Beauty Culturist. Ma dams De Neal has just returned from California, where she had a very suc cessful trip, having established “The De Neal Method” of “Hair Culture" in Los Angeles. Oakland, San Franci>co and Portland. “The De Neal Method” is not simply washing and straightening the hair. Agents must know how to treat the scalp scientifically. After cleansing The Saalp Specialist the hair and scalp, using Madame He Neal’s shampoo powders, apply the “Invigorator,” which destroys the lit tle germ that originates from diseases of the scalp. Next, the “Hair Grower, which is a positive remedy for dry, scaly and itchy scalp. It will stop the hair from falling out, promote its growth and make it soft and glossy. The most successful people are those who look ahead, make their plans upd are ready to participate in the full ness revival which is sure to c6ide. “The De Neal Method” of Hair and Scalp Treatment means larger , roflts to the agents and better satisfied cus tomers. Now is the time to make the best of an opportunity by learning “The De Neal Method,” which <an be applied to women of the white as 'well as to the women of our own is a well-known fact, that the white colleges do not teach you the practical method of caring for hair of the v.omen of our race. “The De Neal Method*' of Scalp Treatment embraces a complete course in the following: Hair dresses and their treatment; the proper method of shampooing, trimming, singing: a scientific method of apply ing tonics and ointments; the best method of handling your customers; and in fact every subject of interest to the “Hair Culturist” is fully dis cussed. The agent has the handling of “The De Neal Preparations, which are giving such wonderful results. The “Preparations” are prepared by Ma dame De Neal from carefully selected ingredients which her twelve years of practical experience has demonstrat ed the best adapted for the purpoae intended. The increase demand for their use, both in our establishment and those of our agents, testify to their efficiency, as we can easily prove from the many letters we are constantly re ceiving most day from satisfied cus tomers. Let us at least develop the resources and utilize the possibilities ke have here at hand. Opportunity is legion, but only a few are accepted and developed. Disabuse your mind of its clutter of “can’ts” and “won’t” and fill it with “cans” and wills.” Opportunity. I knock unbidden once at every gate! If sleeping, wake —if feasting,’ rise before I turn away. It is the hour of fate, And they who follow me reach every state Mortals desire, and conquer every foe Save death; but. those who doubt or hesitate, Condemned to failure, penury and w’oe, Seek me In vain and uselessly implore. I answer not, and I return no more. Bons of Virginia to Hold Reception.

CHURCH DRAWS COLOR LINE Militant Raca Leader and Biblioist Ra fuaaa to Hava Hia Pariahionars Sub mit to Bagragation aa Outlinad by Savanth Day Danomination In South ern California. By CHARLES ALEXANDER. Los Angeles, Gal.—Rev. Lewis C. Sheafe, a valued elder of the Seventh Day Adventist denomination, demon Kt rated his pluck and manly courage recently when he withdrew from the southern California conference of the denomination he has served so long and faithfully on account of its doc trine bearing upon the color line. Dur ing the past year Elder Sheafe founded in Los Angeles a splendid church. The members of this church also withdrew from the conference and passed ringing resolutions setting forth the reusous for their action. The name of the church founded by Itev. Mr. Sheafe is the Berean Seventh Day Adventists* church. Since its sev erance from the conference it is now known ns the Free Seventh Day Ad ventists’ church, with Itev. Lewis C. Sheafe of 14411 West Thirty-fifth street, this city, as pastor. The action of the Itev. Mr. Sheafe nud his members is regarded ns an event of great historical importance. The trouble grew out of the fact that Mr. Sheafe and his members could not conscientiously subscribe to certain r*v. uiwis a uun. sentiments contained in “The Test! monies,” volume 9, bearing on the color line. This book is regarded by the elders us inspired writing. Mrs. Ellen G. White, the author, was, ac cording to the elders of the Seventh Day Adventists' church, divinely in spired, and the ‘*Teßtlmonleß ,, serves u* an infallible guide to all the believers In this denomination. Although her work lacks literary merit, she has written some excellent things about the Bible. Her arguments, however, are wanting in orderly ar rangement und progressive and logical presentation, and they are especially grievously offensive when treating the color question. Itev. Mr. Bhcnfe was asked if be believed all of the ‘“Testi monies,” and he frankly avowed that he did not and gave his reasons as fol lows: “The ‘Testimonies’ teaches raciul dis crimination and does not harmonize with the Bible.” We quote: “From Aus tralia, across the broad waters of the Pacific, cautious were sent that evefy movement must be guarded, that the workers were to make no political speeches and that the mingling of whites and . blacks in social equality was by no means to be encouraged. • • • In regard to white and colored people worshiping In the same build Ing, this cannot be followed as a gen eral custom. The t>est thing will be tc provide the colored people with places of worship of their own, in which they can carry on their services by them selves.” This is the doctrine of separation and is diametrically opposed to this author’! teaching In her earlier w’rttlngs. On page 202 of this “sacred” book the nu thor declares that “but for several rea sons w’blte men must be chosen ns lead ers.” This means that, how’ever capn hie, no colored man can lend in this de nomination. This, with other sent! tients in the “Testimonies,” proved >iore than this heroic body of Christian workers cotrld stand: hence they with drew. Planning For Presidential Campaign.
